In the Scriptures, unleavened bread represents truth. Leavened bread represents truth with distortions – born of sin, which leads to hypocrisy. Thus Jesus warned His disciples to watch out for the leaven of the Pharisees.
Leaven results when we add our opinions to God’s thoughts and present them as a unified whole. The Scriptures warn that we should never add to God’s words or take away from them. Presenting His words to others in purity is extremely important.
Today’s man-made churches are a constant source of leaven. That is, today’s human church proclaims Jesus Christ but adds to that message all sorts of unbiblical demands as if God were making them. Most of these demands stem from the church’s desire to perpetuate itself. God only needed the church on a temporary basis until the kingdom of God had come. That’s why the New Testament church is the only legitimate church that the world has ever known.
We should repent and return to the unleavened bread of the Scriptures and the Holy Spirit. If we did this, then Jesus would be glorified and our lives would be changed.
The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in biblical terms.
