Comments Off on Passover and the Days of Unleavened Bread, Filed in Events, Videos, Youth, by CGP.
The Passover and Unleavened Bread
Passover in the spring of the year is rich in symbolism relating to our covenant relationship with God and helping us to see the need for self-reflection, a sacrifice for our sins, and a Saviour to restore a right relationship with God and deliver us from Egypt – a symbol of life cut off from God’s wisdom and guidance.
Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 8 Let us therefore celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth. 1 Corinthians 5:7-9 ESV
These are the feasts of the LORD, holy convocations which you shall proclaim at their appointed times. On the fourteenth day of the first month at twilight is the LORD’s Passover. And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of Unleavened Bread to the LORD; seven days you must eat unleavened bread. On the first day you shall have a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it. But you shall offer an offering made by fire to the LORD for seven days. The seventh day shall be a holy convocation; you shall do no customary work on it. Leviticus 23:4-8

Hebrew Calendar Valid Today?
I had a visit from our friendly neighbourhood Jehovah’s witness today offering me a chance to join them in March for their Passover memorial…this created a question in my mind as I’m anticipating Passover in the end of April. So why the difference?
It reminded me of an article by John Ogwyn, a thoughtful gentleman that my husband worked with for a few years.
I think he addresses the question of when we should observe the Holy Days with insight and clarity, and in accordance with the scriptures. Here is his original article with some subtitles added.
The Hebrew Calendar
By John Ogwyn
Since 1986, the calendar has been a recurring source of doctrinal controversy in the Church of God. Many articles and papers have proposed different methods of calculating the dates of the annual festivals, and at least a half-dozen different calendars and calculation methods have been offered.
This has troubled many sincere brethren who want to do what pleases God. With all the controversy, they are unsure. But does God really expect each individual Church member to become an expert on calendar matters? read more More

Feast of Tabernacles 2015 Penticton
Hosted by the Winnipeg Church of God
September 27- October 5, 2015
Come for the Feast of Tabernacles and worship God during His Fall Holy Day season!
The brethren are looking forward to their fifth inspiring year of spiritual feasting and fellowship in Penticton, BC.
The Feast will be beginning Sunday evening September 27 2015 with a Welcome to the Feast gathering.
Located just a few hours drive north of Spokane, Washington, on a major north-south highway, Penticton is a 4.5 hour drive from Vancouver, B.C.
There is regularly scheduled air service to airports at Penticton or Kelowna, about 45 minutes north. Flights to Seattle or Vancouver are also available, with car rental services available from there. For a map and driving directions from Seattle Airport, click here.

The climate tends to be warm and sunny with good weather continuing even into October. The region is famous for its vineyards, fruit orchards, and water sports on two magnificent fresh water lakes, Lake Okanagan and Lake Skaha.
First century Christians believed in the coming of Christ to establish his government on the earth and reign for a thousand years as understood from the scriptures and early Christian writers. But over time this understanding was lost. How can we prove that there will be a “Millennium?”
