Let no yeast be found in your possession Deu 16:4
Story: The night Israelites where delivered from Egypt, they sacrificed an animal and put the blood on the doorpost, that night when the destruction passed by all the houses that had the blood no harm happened, but those houses that did not have blood on their doorpost (all Egyptians), all of those families first born died. And that night Israelites where delivered out of slavery.
God set different festivals for the Israelites, one of it was Passover. This was to celebrate that the Lord brought them out of Egypt by night. An animal from their flock or herd had to be sacrificed. And then no yeast be found in their possession in all their land for seven days.
Lesson: After almost 1500 years, on a Passover, Jesus was crucified on the cross, he became once and for all, the Passover lamb once and for all. His blood will save us from being destroyed? And because of that sacrifice, like Israelites taking the blood and putting on the doorpost, if we ask for forgiveness to God the Father by believing in Jesus, Father will forgive us of all our sins. If we are ready to accept Jesus as our personal savior. His blood will guard us.
Next seven days they were not supposed to have bread with yeast. It shows us to live a life without sin (yeast) for the rest of our life (as seven shows completeness). Can we live Holy, grace that saved us, is sufficient to help us to lead a victorious life!
Prayer: Father Lord, help us to live in holiness, forgive me, Lord for all the disobedience. Amen.
