And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying,
This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. (Luke 22:19)
These Are the Feasts of the Lord
Leviticus 23:4-5 These are the feasts of the Lord, even holy convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons. In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the Lord’s passover.
Deuteronomy 16:1 Observe the month of Abib, and keep the passover unto the Lord thy God: for in the month of Abib the Lord thy God brought thee forth out of Egypt by night.
When the Passover was instituted, the people had to kill a lamb and eat it on the night of the Passover.
It continued to be observed in this manner until the night in which Jesus was betrayed to be crucified. It was the Passover that he and his disciples were observing the night of his betrayal.
7 Then came the day of unleavened bread, when the passover must be killed.
8 And he sent Peter and John, saying, Go and prepare us the passover, that we may eat.
15 And he said unto them, With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer
Upon the death (sacrifice) of Jesus, he became our Passover.
1 Corinthians 5:7 Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened. For even Christ our passover is sacrificed for us
Now, on the night of the Passover, instead of killing the lamb and eating it, we drink the wine which represents Jesus’ blood and eat the bread which represents his body.
And the blood shall be to you for a token upon the houses where ye are: and when I see the blood, I will pass over you, and the plague shall not be upon you to destroy you, when I smite the land of Egypt. (Exodus 12:13)
Watch Our Passover Service From Last Year…
If anyone misses the Passover for the reasons listed in Numbers 9:10-11, the 2nd Month Passover begins on Saturday, May 18, 2019 at Sundown.
Preparing for The Feast of Unleavened Bread
Leviticus 23:6 And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto the Lord: seven days ye must eat unleavened bread.
Many questions arise during this feast pertaining to leaven: leaven means “puffed up”. All “BREAD” products (i.e. Breads, Waffles, Donuts, Cookies, Brownies, Croissants, Breaded Chicken/Fish, Pancakes, etc.) that are leavened (Puffed Up) should be removed from your home before the end of Passover. You do not have to throw away your baking powder, baking soda or yeast during this feast because these products are in dry form and haven‟t been mixed with water, or other liquid and dry ingredients to activate them. Dry mixes (bread mix, cake mix, etc.) containing leavening agents do not have to be thrown out because they have not been leavened (puffed up). Matzo (Matzah) is the bread of choice for most people during the Feast of Unleavened Bread, but alternatives to Matzah are Hot Water Corn Bread or Pita Bread [to be safe don‟t use any leavening agents in them that could cause them to rise]. If you purchase Pita Bread make sure that it isn’t puffed up.
