And when He had taken some bread and given thanks, He broke it and gave it to them, saying, “This is My body which is given for you; do this in remembrance of Me.” And in the same way He took the cup after they had eaten, saying, “This cup which is poured out for you is the new covenant in My blood. Luke 22:19-20
Passover is just around the corner, and there is still time to Spring clean. Now is a good time for some deep soul searching for what is puffed up in life. I say puffed up because leaven points to pride and unleavened points to humility. There is nothing within ourselves apart from the Lord that we can lay claim to regarding our salvation. Just as Yeshua emptied himself so do we empty ourselves daily of who we wrongly think we are at times. Anything other than what the Lord's says about us is pride.
Passover "Pesach" is the only time blood redeemed born again disciples are commanded by Yeshua to remember him. It is not Christmas nor is it Easter though his resurrection is essential to be recognized. However, when we think of the Passover, we must think of the sacrifice, and in doing so, we should see it from the side of the cross where there is no suffering but power, authority and such magnificent love.
As believers, we are an unleavened kingdom. We are to learn obedience by leaving the constructs of our humanity. Humility is where the natural ends and the supernatural begins. Eternal Father is not looking for the perfect human, but He is looking for the perfected humility. There are seven gifts received all corresponding with those first seven days of creation recorded in Genesis 1. The seven gifts are those seven days we remember the Lord when we eat unleavened bread whereby we are able to discover new measures of the Lord's ways. We come face to face with the "fleshy" ways of our hearts. This carnality is undone when we unleaven our lives. When we allow Holy Spirit to create a clean heart within and then renew the Lord's Spirit, we encounter the power of being resurrected into the strength of our salvation. We gain the real power of the resurrection as we daily overcome the world just as Yeshua overcame.
Passover is about everything holy. It is the time to come into agreement with another seven. It is the Lord's hands (2), feet (2), side (1), brow (1), and the bruising of his body (1) . These all point of his humility. He humbled himself and became obedient all they way to a death on a cross that we deserved but he took from and for us. Like Yeshua we live to obey because this is our humility. The work of our hands must be unleavened. Our walk must be unleavened. Our heart must be unleavened. Our mind must be unleavened. The entirety of our personhood, mind, will and emotion must be unleavened. All must be unleavened for the supernatural nature of love to bring life eternal. Now is the Lord's kingdom in His eternal sons who are called by His name. The old is not only past but is passed over and is set under the record of life - HIS LIFE.
The Life of the Son is the life source of who we are in him and in the earth. As it is in him so is he in us. As the Lord's body, we partake in the lifeblood of the son. There is nothing that we bring to the Lord's table, it is not a potluck but a glorious opportunity to share in the King of King's portion. There are no crumbs that fall to the dogs. All creation knows there is redemption. The inheritance is tremendous and even greater for the unleavened person.
In this season of the Passover, let your "life-house" be cleansed from all that still seeks to oppose the gift of salvation you have received. Let your look be long but loving. Let your hearing be clear but truthful. Let your heart be circumcised for the new that wants to enter into the Lord's promise. Do not let fear turn you into a grasshopper, but believe the Lord's report. It is truly a sad testimony to gain freedom only to wander in a wilderness created by pride, unbelief or disobedience. The Lord resists the proud but does give grace to the humble. Salvation may be for you, but don't make it about you. Be unleavened and see the Lord's power rest upon you to be what HE created you to be.
