Mosiach’s Seudah!

Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.  And in the first day there shall be an holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be an holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.  And ye shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall ye observe this day in your generations by an ordinance forever.  In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, ye shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.  Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eateth that which is leavened, even that soul shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he be a stranger, or born in the land Ye shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread.  Ex. 12:15-20

Did you know there are TWO Passover feasts?  And we’re commanded to celebrate them both – whether Jewish or not – FOREVER?  Not just until the Messiah comes – FOR. EVER.  Did you know that?

We’ve actually celebrated this for years, but weirdly – as ‘Mimouna’.   We were new to the thing, and used ‘Shalom Sesame’ (<< Jewish Sesame Street all about their feasts) to help us, and they always said that there was a celebration at the end of the seven days of being unleavened… to bring the yeast back into the house.

This is not true, though.  Actually?  The seventh day is ‘Red Sea’ day, or the ‘Last day of the Wedding’, in which a whole new life is given.  See, Israel was ‘redeemed’ on Pesach/Passover, but until they crossed that sea?  They were still in sin, or ‘Egypt’ (the world).  So this commanded feast?  It’s known to more devout people [than Sesame Street] as ‘Mosiach’s Seudah’, or Messiah’s Supper.   Which is interesting, since Messiah doesn’t factor into the Passover story, for most people!

I’ve written a lot about this, so I’m not going to, again, but obviously it’s a highly possible rapture date.  (You know me.)  And I’d be remiss in making today’s post all about it.  So here are the links for more information (from my past posts):

Seven Unleavened (2012)
Week of Unleavened Living (2013)
Mimouna!  (2013)
Meal of Messiah (2015)
Seuah of the Seventh Day (2016)

It’s very exciting.  And something of a ‘grand finale’ to the Passover week.  Of course we’re still counting Omer, but we’re doing it from a different place, after today!
