The Feast of Unleavened Bread Day One {2012}

The Feast of Unleavened Bread Day One - a quick post!

Brett read aloud to us about the feast from Exodus 12, Leviticus 23, Numbers 28 and 1 Corinthians 5.

He explained to the kids that yeast is often representative of sin in the Scriptures and that we are to "keep the feast" but not in the fleshly nature of malice and wickedness (our old selves) but with sincerity and truth.
Yah always sees the heart and this is always the most important thing to Him!

We read that on the day after Passover, we are to take away yeast from in our home and we are not to cook with it. This is to remind Israel (both the native born and those who are grafted or adopted in (us!) ) that when Yah delivered them from Egypt, their bread did not have time to rise and that they had to be ready to leave when He appointed the time. We too are waiting for Yeshua's return and are to be ready in our hearts for Him.

So read the food labels...



....and emptied the pantry with all our yeasty goods...


For brekky: the kids had their normal Shabbat cereal while I had a couple of eggs with some mustard and rice wraps...


Brett cut up the pumpkin which the Vandor's kindly gave us last weekend and he made pumpkin soup in the slow cooker...


During the day we pottered around and read...

 


played footy, (i tried to get Zeeki to sleep unsuccessfully!), hung out with Sulley, coloured in the sheets Katie and Michael had printed off for the kiddos and they watched a couple of dvd's including some of the classic Ten Commandments film.

For lunch we lit some candles and had a Shabbat treat of bean and salsa nachos...


I made some Matzah (unleavened bread)...



and got a little creative with some cookie cutters ;)

Raw...


...and baked...


Brett milled me some rice flour...
 


and we sat and listened to music (including a beautiful song by Teshuva about Passover and Yeshua's sacrfice), ate dinner and then danced and went a little crazy before showers! lol that's our fam for you!


More to come soon,
