Whoever eats food with hametz in it is to be cut off form the community of Israel-- it doesn`t matter whether he is a foreigner or a citizen of the land. Eat nothing with hametz in it. Wherever you live, eat matzah ! --Exodus 15:19~20Matzah is not available anywhere near where I live, but there are two places that I know of in Tokyo where we can order it. Praise God!
I ordered some Matzah for this Passover and thankfully it arrived on time!
But I still wanted to try to make it!
One of my friends who is observing Passover this year for the first time will be attending a seder (Passover meal, the word itself means `order`). She asked me how to make it. I think its beautiful that many people who are not Jewish are beginning to understand that the Passover is not just for Jewish people but for all who call on His name. We remember the Exodus from Egypt and being set free. The bread had to made in haste. We remember that Yeshua died for our sins and set us free.
While making the matzah, it is a wonderful time to meditate on all of the story of Passover and of our Salvation.
I will include some scriptures and notes.
The people took their dough before it had become leavened and wrapped their kneading bowls in their clothes on their shoulders. ---Exodus 12:14
|When we pierce the Matzah with a fork, we remember Yeshua`s body that was broken and pierced for our transgressions.|
But He was pierced
because of our transgressions,
crushed because of our iniquities.
The chastisement for our shalom
was upon Him,
and by His stripes we are healed.
