Easy Biblical Passover!

Quick, easy and biblical Passover! Choose one or two bitter herbs (horseradish, romaine,endive are most common choices), and matzah (corn chips are fine) and also grape juice to say yes to your Betrothed in both the bitter and the sweet times! This is usually done before dinner. You may add traditional elements as you wish. I always enjoy the diced apples, walnuts, raisins or dates pureed with a bit of grape juice for the brick mortar…it goes so well with the horseradish!!! Take the blood of Y’shua (grape juice) symbolically for the doorposts of your heart and home.

I encourage you to read through the passages in scripture about the plagues and leaving Egypt during this week prior. http://www.openbible.info/topics/passover

So hopefully you can un-leaven yourselves for that next 7 days (possibly have no-yeast crackers, corn chips or wraps rather than bread) and meditate on the meaning of the three feasts of that week…Passover is one night, but Unleavened Bread is the next 7 days and the Sunday during that is Resurrection Day/ First Fruits of Barley and the wave sheaf offering. And on that day begins the 7 Sabbath count to the Torah (Betrothal ketubah) on Mt Sinai on Shavuot/Pentacost..and the Ruach ha Kodesh/Holy Spirit!

The Torah was given on Mt Sinai on this day as was the Holy Spirit at the Temple in Acts.  Similar tongues of fire accompanied both and interesting parallels.

Shavuot = weeks
Shavua = week
-ot =plural
root is shab/shoob = same root for return, repent, Sabbath, week
taking it letter by letter it means ‘press, into house or family, nailed/fastened/hooked/connected, to see, know, experience’
Pentacost means count 50 days. But that has nothing to do with the real meaning of this.  It is a Greek word that came about later.  It is not about how many days, but about counting 7 weeks after the resurrection or after they left Egypt as the case may be.
