Unleavened Bread/Matzah

unleavened bread

Unleavened Bread/Matzah is a festival unto YAHUAH.  It is observed the day after Passover, for 7 days.

We rest from work on the first and last day of the week long festival.

We gather together on the first and last day of the festival.

We eat unleavened bread for 7 days

We do not consume anything that has leaven in it throughout the week long festival.

We clean our houses and get rid of anything that has leaven in it (this is where spring cleaning came from).

We can cook food that is to be consumed only by us.

‘Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. Indeed on the first day you cause leaven to cease from your houses. For whoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that being shall be cut off from Yisra’El. ‘And on the first day is a set-apart gathering, and on the seventh day you have a set-apart gathering. No work at all is done on them, only that which is eaten by every being, that alone is prepared by you. ‘And you shall guard the Festival of Unleavened Bread, for on this same day I brought your divisions out of the land of Mitsrayim. And you shall guard this day throughout your generations, an everlasting law.  (Exodus 12:15-17) Also found in Leviticus 23:6-8, et al.

This memorial depicts cleaning out the leaven/sin from our hearts and preparing us to receive the “good seed” of Torah.

Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the entire lump? Therefore cleanse out the old leaven, so that you are a new lump, as you are unleavened. For also Messiah our Passover was offered for us. So then let us observe the festival, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of evil and wickedness, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. (1 Corinthians 5:6-8)
