Join Us for the Passover and Feast
We invite you to join us for this year’s Passover on the evening on April 13 and the Feast of Unleavened Bread from April 15 - 21. The Passover arguably is the most solemn of Yahweh’s observances. It marks the death of the firstborn of Egypt and the death of Yahweh’s only begotten Son, Yahshua the Messiah. The Feast of Unleavened Bread is one of the three pilgrimage Feasts and offers a time of not only removing the physical leavening, but also the spiritual leavening from our homes and lives. For additional information, including a schedule and registration form, visit us online or call (573) 896-1000.
A leavening agent (sometimes just called leavening or leaven) is a substance used in dough and batters that causes them to rise. In the presence of moisture, heat, acidity, or other triggers the leavening agent reacts to produce gas (often carbon dioxide) that becomes trapped as bubbles within the dough. When a dough or batter is baked, it “sets” and the holes left by the gas bubbles remain. This is what gives breads, cakes, and other baked goods their soft, sponge-like textures.
During the Feast of Unleavened Bread, Yahweh commands that no leavening be eaten or found on our premises: “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. You shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall ye eat unleavened bread,” Exodus 12:19-20. Below are leavening agents found in a variety of foods that must be used up or removed by the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Incidentally, it is not acceptable to remove leavening from your property if you just bring it back once the Feast is over. The lesson is to remove leavening entirely from our lives, which represents that which promotes corruption. To bring it back at the end of the Feast subverts the whole purpose of the lesson.
Commonly used leavening agents include:
· Yeasts, including:
· baker’s yeast
· active dried yeast
· baking powder
· baking soda
· cream of tartar (potassium bitartrate)
· ammonium carbonate
· ammonium bicarbonate
· Potassium carbonate
· Potassium bicarbonate
· Dipotassium carbonate
Update on Kitchen Expansion
This week Brothers Jason Pletz and Ryan Mansager continued work on the electrical and drywall. Once the additional space is renovated, we will move into the current kitchen to complete the renovation, which will include an additional doorway and counter area for better flow. This expansion will increase the total size of our kitchen to 450 square feet. As part of the expansion, we also plan to replace and add several sorely needed appliances (as funds permit), including a warming oven, an extra stove, a built-in dishwasher, and ice maker. The total cost of materials and appliances is estimated at $10,000. Labor will add many thousands more. If you would like to assist with this expense, you can donate online (please indicate purpose of donation) or by mail @ YRM, PO Box 463, Holts Summit, MO 65043. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
TEST YOUR TUTELAGE
What are the requirements for taking the Passover emblems?
A. Confession of sins
B. Baptism into Yahshua’s Name
C. Physical circumcision
D. Nothing, Yahshua accepts us as we are
The Old Testament required physical circumcision for those who partook of the Passover Memorial, Exodus12:44. However, the Apostles in the New Testament determined that physical circumcision was no longer required (Acts 15:1, 19-21; 1Corinthians 7:19; Galatians 5:6), but that circumcision of the heart through baptism was (Colossians 2:11-13). For this reason, a person must be baptized into Yahshua’s Name before partaking of the Passover emblems, commonly called the “Master’s Supper.”
