God gives us symbols to picture a reality. The Days of Unleavened Bread is the second of seven symbols God gives us in the 7 Annual Feast Days. Unleavened Bread is the symbol, but what is the reality?
Unleavened Bread Pictures Christ In Us!
The first of the seven symbols found in the 7 Annual Feast Days is the Passover. The Passover symbolizes the reality that Jesus, our Passover Lamb, shed His blood and died for the remission of our sins, thereby saving us from eternal death. So if someone asks you if you have been saved the answer is yes in that sense. Two other terms you might be familiar with are reconciliation and justification, which means brought back into good standing with God. Being saved, reconciled and justified are all accomplished in the symbol and reality of the Passover when we accept by faith the Sacrificial Death Of Jesus.
As I said before, the second of seven symbols God gives us in the 7 Annual Feast Days is The Days of Unleavened Bread. The Days of Unleavened Bread symbolizes the reality that Jesus, our Bread of Life, lives in us to make us righteous, thereby guaranteeing our eternal life. So if someone asks you if you’ve been born again the answer is yes in that sense. Another term you might be familiar with is sanctification, which means set apart for holy use. Being born again and sanctified are both accomplished in the symbol and reality of The Days of Unleavened Bread when we accept by faith the Sinless Life Of Jesus.
So after we are saved from sin, pictured by the Passover, we are saved to righteousness, pictured by The Days of Unleavened Bread. Let’s see this perfect picture in Ephesians 2:8-10. “[This first part is Passover language] For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. [This second part is Days of Unleavened Bread language] For we are God’s workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for the purpose of doing good works, which God has ordained for us to do.” Does it make sense that after we have been saved from sin we go back into sin? Of course not!
Let’s take a closer look at seven Biblical clues God gives us regarding the symbolism of The Days of Unleavened Bread. When we unlock the meaning of these clues it will really open your eyes to the richness of the reality.
