Feast of being Humble


Shabbat Shalom again

   שַׁבָּת שָׁלוֹם


[1] And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying,

[2] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, concerning the feasts of Yehovah, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, even these are My feasts.

[3] Six days shall work be done: but the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, a holy convocation; you shall do no work therein: it is the Sabbath of Yehovah in all your dwellings.

[4] These are the feasts of Yehovah,

even holy convocations, which you shall proclaim in their seasons.

[5] In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is Yehovah's passover.

[6] And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the feast of unleavened bread unto Yehovah: seven days you must eat unleavened bread.

[7] In the first day you shall have a holy convocation: you shall do no servile work therein.

[8] But you shall offer an offering made by fire unto Yehovah seven days: in the seventh day is a holy convocation: you shall do no servile work therein.

[9] And Yehovah spoke unto Moses, saying,

[10] Speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, When you be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest unto the priest:
[11] And he shall wave the sheaf before
Yehovah, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it.

[12] And you shall offer that day when you wave the sheaf a he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto Yehovah.
[13] And the meat offering thereof shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto
Yehovah for a sweet savor: and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of an hin.

[14] And you shall eat neither bread, nor parched corn, nor green ears, until the selfsame day that you have “brought an offering” unto your God: it shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.

[15] And you shall count unto you from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be complete:

[16] Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall you number fifty days; and you shall offer a new meat offering unto Yehovah.

[17] You shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baked with leaven; they are the first fruits unto Yehovah.

[18] And you shall offer with the bread seven lambs without blemish of the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams: they shall be for a burnt offering unto Yehovah, with their meat offering, and their drink offerings, even an offering made by fire, of sweet savour unto Yehovah.

[19] Then you shall sacrifice one kid of the goats for a sin offering, and two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of peace offerings.

[20] And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the first fruits for a wave offering before Yehovah, with the two lambs: they shall be holy to Yehovah for the priest.

[21] And you shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be a holy convocation unto you: you shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.

[22] And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when you reap, neither shall you gather any gleaning of your harvest: you shall leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger: I am Yehovah your God.


“Offering time”


Exod.23 [14] Three times you shall keep a feast unto me in the year.

[15] You shall keep the feast of unleavened bread: (you shall eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded you, in the time appointed of the month Abib, ha Aviv - for in it you came out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)

 [16] And the feast of harvest (weeks, Pentecost), the first fruits of your labors, which you hast sown in the field:

and the feast of ingathering, which is in the end of the year, when you hast gathered in your labors out of the field.[17] Three times in the year all your males shall appear before the Lord Yehovah.

Deut. 16 [16] Three times in a year shall all your males appear before Yehovah your God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles: and they shall not appear before Yehovah empty:

[17] Every man (person) shall give as he (they are) is able, according to the blessing of Yehovah your God which he hath given you.

The Feast of Unleavened Bread - חַג הַמַּצּוֹת

The bread of affliction - לֶחֶם עֹנִי


Feast of being Humble

Being Humble


[1] At the same time came the disciples unto Yeshua, saying, who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?

[2] And Yeshua called a little child unto him, and set him in the midst of them,
[3] And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.

[4] Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.


[1] Then spoke Yeshua to the multitude, and to his disciples,
[2] Saying, The scribes and the Pharisees sit in Moses' seat:
[3] All therefore whatsoever they bid you observe, that observe and do; but do not you after their works: for they say, and do not.
[4] For they bind heavy burdens and grievous to be borne, and lay them on men's shoulders; but they themselves will not move them with one of their fingers.

[5] But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments,
[6] And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues,
[7] And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi.

[8] But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Messiah; and all ye are brethren.

[9] And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.

[10] Neither be you called masters: for one is your Master, even Messiah.

[11] But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

[12] And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased; and he that shall

humble himself shall be exalted.


Luke 18

[9] And he spoke this parable unto certain which trusted in themselves that they were righteous, and despised others:

[10] Two men went up into the temple to pray; the one a Pharisee, and the other a publican.
[11] The Pharisee stood and prayed thus with himself, God, I thank thee, that I am not as other men are, extortioners, unjust, adulterers, or even as this publican.
[12] I fast twice in the week, I give tithes of all that I possess.

[13] And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

[14] I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.


Yeshua’ example


[1] If there be therefore any consolation in Messiah, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any bowels and mercies,
[2] Fulfill you my joy, that you be likeminded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind.

[3] Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.

[4] Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.

[5] Let this mind be in you, which was also in Messiah Yeshua:

[6] Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:
[7] But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:
[8] And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death,
even the death of the cross.


Col.3 [12] Put on therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, bowels of mercies, kindness, humbleness of mind, meekness, longsuffering; [13] Forbearing one another, and forgiving one another, if any man have a quarrel against any: even as Messiah forgave you, so also do you.

[14] And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness.


James tells us:

Jas.4 …God resists the proud, but God gives grace unto the humble.

[10] Humble yourselves in the sight of Yehovah, and He shall lift you up.



[7] And he put forth a parable to those which were bidden, when he marked how they chose out the chief rooms; saying unto them,

[8] When you are bidden of any man to a wedding, sit not down in the highest room; lest a more honorable man than you be bidden of him;
[9] And he that bade you and him come and say to you, Give this man place; and you begin with shame to take the lowest room.

[10] But when you are bidden, go and sit down in the lowest room; that when he that bade you comes, he may say unto you, Friend, go up higher: then shall you have worship in the presence of them that sit at meat with you.
[11] For whosoever exalts himself shall be abased; and he that humbles himself shall be exalted.

Saul tells Timothy:

1Tim.5 [1] Rebuke not an elder, but entreat him as a father; and the younger men as brethren;
[2] The elder women as mothers; the younger as sisters, with all purity.


Peter says:

1Pet.5 [5] Likewise, you younger, submit yourselves unto the elder.

Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility:

for God resists the proud, and gives grace to the humble.

[6] Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: [7] Casting all your care upon him; for He cares for you.

[8] Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour: who resist steadfast in the faith…


Yeshua’s lessons

Luke.22 [1] Now the feast of unleavened bread drew nigh, which is called the Passover.

[24] And there was also a strife among them, which of them should be accounted the greatest.
[25] And he said unto them, the kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them; and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors.
[26] But you shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.

[27] For whether is greater, he that sits at meat, or he that serves? Is not he that sits at meat? but

I, Yeshua am among you as He that serves



עֳנִי - עֹנִי

ŏnı̂y - on-ee' - depression, that is, misery: - afflicted (-ion), trouble.


ânâh - aw-naw'

A primitive root - to depress literally or figuratively, transitively or intransitively (in various applications), abase self, afflict (-ion, self), self, deal hardly with, defile, humble (self), weaken



[1] Observe the month of Abib, and keep the Passover unto Yehovah your God: for in the month of Abib Yehovah your God brought you forth out of Egypt by night.

[2] You shall therefore sacrifice the Passover unto Yehovah your God, of the flock and the herd, in the place which Yehovah shall choose to place his name there.

[3] You shall eat no leavened bread with it; seven days shall you eat unleavened bread therewith, even the bread of affliction; for you came forth out of the land of Egypt in haste: that you may remember the day when you came forth out of the land of Egypt all the days of your life.

[4] And there shall be no leavened bread seen with you in all your coast seven days; neither shall there anything of the flesh, which you sacrifice

the first day at even, remain all night until the morning.

Unleavened bread, the bread of affliction


Get the “old leaven” out (of your hearts, lives)

I mean false doctrines, hypocrisy, malice and wickedness

Paul says: 1 Cor. 5 [8] Therefore let us keep the feast, not with old leaven, neither with the leaven of malice and wickedness; but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.


Beware of "leaven" - false doctrines and hypocrisy

Beware of false religious leaders: pastors, teachers and rabbis, Messianics, websites, social media platforms, false YouTube religious programs etc…


Isa. 32 [6] For the vile person will speak villainy, and his heart will work iniquity, to practice hypocrisy, and to utter error against Yehovah, to make empty the soul of the hungry, and he will cause the drink of the thirsty to fail.

חנף chôneph - kho'-nef - moral filth, that is, wickedness: - hypocrisy - godlessness, hypocrite, profaneness, soiled (that is, with sin), impious and godless

Luke 12 [1] In the mean time, when there were gathered together an innumerable multitude of people, insomuch that they trode one upon another, he began to say unto his disciples first of all, Beware you of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.

Matt. 16 [6] Then Yeshua said unto them, Take heed and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.

[7] And they reasoned among themselves, saying, it is because we have taken no bread.
[8] Which when
Yeshua perceived, he said unto them, O you of little faith, why reason you among yourselves, because you have brought no bread?
[9] Do you not yet understand, neither do you
remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets you took up?
[10] Neither the seven loaves of the four thousand,
and how many baskets you took up?

[11] How is it that you do not understand that I spoke it not to you concerning bread, that you should beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees?

[12] Then understood they how that he bade them not beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Pharisees and of the Sadducees.


Mark 8 [11] And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.
[12] And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and
says, why doth this generation seek after a sign? Verily, truly I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.
[13] And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.
[14] Now the disciples had forgotten to take bread, neither had they in the ship with them more than one loaf.

[15] And he charged them, saying, take heed, beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, and of the leaven of Herod.

[16] And they reasoned among themselves, saying, it is because we have no bread.
[17] And when
Yeshua knew it, he says unto them, why reason you, because you have no bread? Perceive you not yet, neither understand? Is your heart yet hardened?

[18] Having eyes, see you not? And having ears, hear you not? And do you not remember?
[19] When I
broke the five loaves among five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took you up? They say unto him, Twelve.
[20] And when the seven among four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments took
you up? And they said, Seven.
[21] And he said unto them,
how is it that you do not understand?


Most pseudo Christians are still observing made up Easter

Passover, Feast of Unleavened Bread, First fruits, Feast of Weeks - Pentecost are in the gospels and letters.

Yeshua, the apostles and Saul all observed these holy days

Remember, these Holy days were first observed by the children of Israel 1000’s of years ago.

We as they, do these days in memorial.

Exod.12 [14] and this day shall be unto you for a memorial; and you shall keep it a feast to Yehovah throughout your generations; you shall keep it a feast by an ordinance forever.

[15] Seven days shall you eat unleavened bread; even the first day you shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eats leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel.

[16] And in the first day there shall be a holy convocation, and in the seventh day there shall be a holy convocation to you; no manner of work shall be done in them, save that which every man must eat, that only may be done of you.

[17] And you shall observe the feast of unleavened bread; for in this selfsame day have I brought your armies out of the land of Egypt: therefore shall you observe this day in your generations by an ordinance forever.

[18] In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month at even, you shall eat unleavened bread, until the one and twentieth day of the month at even.

[19] Seven days shall there be no leaven found in your houses: for whosoever eats 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.

[20] You shall eat nothing leavened; in all your habitations shall you eat unleavened bread.


In closing for now:

Isa.26 [3] You, God will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on You: because he trusts in You.



The Feast of Unleavened bread is until the 15th, Wednesday, a Sabbath.


A first fruit, resurrection day is Sunday the 11th of April


The Feast of Weeks, feast of harvest, Pentecost is the 31th of May – Sunday.


We will be reading during the feast.


Please follow scripture, not made up false traditions which are embellished lies.


Shabbat Shalom
