Unleavened Bread: Completing The Journey

The Days of Unleavened Bread (see the Calendar of Christ's Holy Days for detailed studies and sermons for all of the true Christian Holy Days) symbolize the repentant life of those who choose to accept Christ's Passover Sacrifice by obeying Him. That journey to eternal life is a one-way street because Jesus Christ is the only way ("way" means road e.g. highway, freeway) to salvation, in the "way" that He has established - the Son of God never left it up to humans to decide how to properly worship and obey Him, only if they will choose to properly worship and obey Him. By the Messiah's own words ("for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat" Matthew 7:13 KJV), the "many different roads to the same place" idea refers to the lake of fire, not to salvation (see Friends Of Jesus and The Lake Of Fire Into An Ocean Of Fire - When?).

"14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." (John 14:6 KJV)

Salvation is a one-way street on which there is no turning back, to life (see the Fact Finder question below). Those who reverse course will not find eternal life, only eternal death.

"2:20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning. 2:21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them. 2:22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire." (2 Peter 2:20-22 KJV)

"For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins"

The time of Judgment will come to everyone, sooner or later (see Could Christ Return Tonight?). When it does, there is only one opportunity (the opportunity is not a "chance" because one's inevitable calling is neither accidental nor unpredictable) to accept Christ's Sacrifice.

The Holy Scriptures

"6:4 For it is impossible for those who were once enlightened, and have tasted of the heavenly gift, and were made partakers of the Holy Ghost, 6:5 And have tasted the good word of God, and the powers of the world to come, 6:6 If they shall fall away, to renew them again unto repentance; seeing they crucify to themselves the Son of God afresh, and put him to an open shame. 6:7 For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: 6:8 But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned." (Hebrews 6:4-8 KJV)

The LORD's offer of life should be welcomed with joyous acceptance as we grow toward the future birth as children of God (see Growing In The Grace And Knowledge and Spiritual Conception).

"10:19 Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, 10:20 By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh; 10:21 And having an high priest over the house of God [see What Is Jesus Christ Doing Right Now?]; 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water [see Living Waters]. 10:23 Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; for he is faithful that promised; 10:24 And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good Works: 10:25 Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching.

10:26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins, 10:27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries. 10:28 He that despised Moses' law died without mercy under two or three witnesses: 10:29 Of how much sorer punishment, suppose ye, shall he be thought worthy, who hath trodden under foot the Son of God, and hath counted the blood of the covenant, wherewith he was sanctified, an unholy thing, and hath done despite unto the Spirit of grace? 10:30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people. 10:31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

10:32 But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions; 10:33 Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used. 10:34 For ye had compassion of me in my bonds, and took joyfully the spoiling of your goods, knowing in yourselves that ye have in heaven a better and an enduring substance.

10:35 Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of reward. 10:36 For ye have need of patience, that, after ye have done the will of God, ye might receive the promise. 10:37 For yet a little while, and he that shall come will come, and will not tarry. 10:38 Now the just shall live by faith: but if any man draw back, my soul shall have no pleasure in him.

10:39 But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul." (Hebrews 10:19-39 KJV)
