Passover is just a few weeks away, so it's time to begin ridding your home of leavened products.
(And no, it's not okay to put your leavened products in the garage for the
week of Passover, and then bring them back into your house. Leaven represents
SIN, and returning your leavened products to your home is akin to returning
"sin"....Best thing to do is to eat it all BEFORE Passover and then start anew.)
Here's a quick calendar overview of this awesome event that Yeshua fulfilled
when he martyred himself on our behalf and rose again to sit at His Father's
side. (Please see our article.)
[Note: The dates here are one day later than the traditional Jewish calendar which begins the month of Nisan one day too early due to its rigid calendar rules.]
