When our LORD JESUS CHRIST died on THE CROSS, He was The Unleavened Bread to purge us of sin.
Leaven symbolises sin, (1 Corinthians 5:6-8). JESUS CHRIST was and is WITHOUT SIN, (2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15;7:26).
Also, as our Unleavened Bread, He was hurriedly taken down from THE CROSS (John 19:38), just as the children of Israel hurriedly ate the unleavened bread at the first Passover in Egypt because there was no time to put leaven in it before The Exodus the next day.
Our Exodus to Heaven is near. We have ABSOLUTELY no time for sin. We must purge ourselves of all unrighteousness, and ask to be filled with The Fruits of Righteousness, (Philippians 1:11). We must ask to be full of Grace and Truth like “The Only Begotten of THE FATHER, full of Grace and Truth” (John 1:14).
When we are full of Grace and Truth like JESUS, nothing of the devil will be found in us.
“Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of GOD.” 2 Corinthians 7:1.
“And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our Salvation is nearer than when we first believed.” Romans 13:11.
“Therefore “Come out from among them and be separate, says THE LORD. Do not touch what is unclean, and I will receive you. I will be a FATHER to you, and you shall be My sons and daughters, says THE LORD Almighty.” 2 Corinthians 6:17-18.
For the first Passover in Egypt, GOD commanded the children of Israel to remove leaven from their houses, (Exodus 12:15). (I understand Jews still do so today).
In like manner, we in CHRIST JESUS are commanded by GOD to remove the leaven of sin out of our houses (our bodies, lives, families) always — by repentance from sin, by forsaking sin — uprooting sin by THE BLOOD.
“Therefore purge out (clean out) the old leaven [sin], that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed CHRIST, our Passover Lamb, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with The Unleavened Bread of Sincerity and Truth.” 1 Corinthians 5:7-8.
How to Celebrate Unleavened Bread
The Passover was eaten by THE LORD JESUS and His disciples on the first day of The Feast of Unleavened Bread. We must do likewise: eat The Passover on the first day of The Feast of Unleavened Bread
“Now on the first day of The Feast of Unleavened Bread the disciples came to JESUS, saying to Him, “Where do You want us to prepare for You to eat the Passover?” Matthew 26:17.
“These are the feasts of THE LORD, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times. On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is THE LORD’s Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to THE LORD; seven days you must eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it. But you shall offer an offering made by fire to THE LORD for seven days. The seventh day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.” Leviticus 23:4-8.
For seven days (including The Passover), we must eat Unleavened Bread literally — thus proclaiming to The Praise of GOD, to the torment of the devil, that we hate sin. That we are no longer slaves of sin. That sin shall no longer have dominion over us, (Hebrews 1:9; Romans 6:6,14).
When we do this, THE LORD, visiting us at this Appointed Time, will cleanse us, yes, purge us of all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, hurts, pains, etc.
Some years ago, I remember praying to THE LORD fervently for some time to heal me of all wounds and hurts known and unknown.
And then one day, while alone in the mission field, I woke up in the middle of the night with the room filled with the unmistakable strong smell of hydrogen peroxide (used in medical practice for treating wounds decades ago).
Immediately, I discerned that healing angels had come to treat me and rid me of hurts and pains which had accumulated over the years. And THE LORD was making me know it in such a striking way of the strong smell of hydrogen peroxide when used.
“Therefore purge out (clean out) the old leaven [sin], that you may be a new lump, since you truly are unleavened. For indeed CHRIST, our Passover Lamb, was sacrificed for us. Therefore let us keep The Feast, not with old leaven, nor with the leaven of malice and wickedness, but with The Unleavened Bread of Sincerity and Truth.” 1 Corinthians 5:7-8.
I always have amazing special visitations of THE LORD during His Appointed Feasts.
In 2020, I had a most awe-inspiring, life-changing visitation of THE LORD during what is traditionally called The Days of Awe or High Holy Days (ten days of repentance and renewal from The Feast of Trumpets to The Day of Atonement). It has exalted (promoted) me beyond imagination, (1 Peter 5:6; James 4:10).
THE LORD does visit us at any time. But The Feasts of THE LORD are definite, Appointed Times of His Visitations for those who keep them.
When we do what GOD says, He will do what He says, for us.
“And on the fifteenth day of the same month is The Feast of Unleavened Bread to THE LORD; seven days you must eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it. But you shall offer an offering made by fire to THE LORD for seven days. The seventh day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it.’” Leviticus 23:6-8.
Verse 8 of The Scripture above says to “offer an offering made by fire to THE LORD for seven days.”
Our LORD JESUS CHRIST is now and forever The Perfect Sacrifice to GOD for us — “The Offering of The Body of JESUS CHRIST once for all.” (Hebrews 10:10).
Therefore, for seven days, pray and present “CHRIST…an Offering and a Sacrifice to GOD for a sweet-smelling aroma.” Yes, pray and present THE LAMB Who was slain “an acceptable Sacrifice well-pleasing to GOD.” (Ephesians 5:2; Philippians 4:18).
On the seventh day, gather as a family or as a Church to pray and thank THE LORD for The Sacrifice of Himself for us.
As THE HOLY SPIRIT says, you shall do no customary work on the seventh day.
This is The Word of GOD, which lives and abides forever.

Jacob, an apostle of JESUS CHRIST by The Will of GOD, according to The Promise of Life Which is in CHRIST JESUS, (2 Timothy 1:1).
Like John, I like to put my head to The Heart of JESUS so as to know and do His Will always. What’s in His Heart is what matters now and FOREVER. His Heart’s Desire is my only desire. My will is to do His Will.
As John was, I am the disciple whom JESUS loves. And like Paul, I am “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS” (Ephesians 3:1) for His Purpose forever: to obey Him always.
NB. Surely, the disciple whom JESUS loves and “the prisoner of CHRIST JESUS”, like ALL The Promises of GOD, are available to every believer to obtain, just as John and Paul did.
“And having been perfected, He [JESUS] became The Author of Eternal Salvation to all who obey Him,” Hebrews 5:9.
