Serious lovers of God and Biblestudents do want to live according to the Law of God and are grateful that they may remember one of the most important happenings in the history of Israel, the People of God, and the liberation of the whole world by the instalment of the New Covenant.
The Belgian government may be looking to take away some paid holidays. They think of anulating Whit Monday, where the question still can be if they are going to leave Whit Sunday as a paid holiday, being Pentecost. As Marcus Ampe a fiew year ago already warned for taking away those two days it will do more economical damage than good, because for Jews and non-trinitarian Christians it is the Festival of Weeks or Shabuot, where they take three days to study the Torah.
Luckily they did not think of taking away the two free days for the feast of unleavened bread, 14-15 Nisan, Pesach or Easter. so we still can take two days free of work and concentrate on the wonders of God and the liberation of His people.
Those who have enough money would like to see the ones who have to be careful with their money and savings to work more hours for the same or even less money and with lesser free days. Strangely enough it is a so called Catholic or Christian party (CD&V) who proposes to get rid of the Holy days. For them financial gain seems to be more important than spiritual gain.
Today being a day of feast let us remember what God has done to His people and how we ought to honour Him and keep His Laws and Feasts.

- The Worm Moon- Nisan 14, and Happy Passover (ireport.cnn.com)
Passover commences on the 15th of the Hebrew month of Nisan.
In Judaism, a “day” commences from dusk to dusk, thus the first day of Passover only begins after dusk of the 14th of Nisan and ends at dusk of the 15th day of the month of Nisan.
- Not giving a eulogy in Nisan (thejc.com)
Nisan is the month of Pesach, the holiday celebrating our freedom from Egypt. It’s the beginning of spring (though not necessarily in England), a month of renewal and rebirth.The custom, therefore, at a funeral during Nisan is to not give a full hesped, eulogy. Although the funeral is a time of grief for the family, the hope and optimism that this time of year naturally awakens partially override their obligation to mourn.
- Our Passover Lamb (eternalchrist.wordpress.com)
It is a notable observation that before the New Testament was written people learned of Jesus Christ from reading the Law and prophets.
YHWH established appointed times that the nation of Israel would meet with Him in worship and thanksgiving. There were three feasts in the Spring (Passover, Unleavened Bread and First Fruits); one in the Summer (Pentecost); and three in the Fall (Trumpets, Atonement and Tabernacle).
Matzah is traditionally eaten during the Passover Seder meal. The dough is striped and pricked with holes representing the scourging and piercing of our Lord Jesus Christ. When Yeshua broke matzah (at the Last Supper) He was passing to His disciples what represented His sinless (unleavened), broken body offered as the sacrificial Lamb of God.
- This day in History…the 10th of Nisan (spiritualdimension.wordpress.com)
On this very day, over 1900 years ago, the people of Israel congregated inside the city walls of Jerusalem to celebrate Pesach (Passover). The people watched as a Man rode on a donkey into the city and His disciples began to direct the people in shouting…
Hosanna to the Son of David! How blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord! Hosanna in the highest heaven! Matthew 21:9 ISV
- Preparations for the Passover Meal – Luke 22: 7-13 (shalommysticwind.wordpress.com)
The story of the preparations for the Passover Meal is itself introductory to the account of the Last Supper in Luke 22: 14-23. Except for certain redaction changes, the Lukan passage is a reproduction of its parallel in Mark 14: 12-16. Already in Luke 22: 1 the evangelist had identified the feast of the Unleavened Bread and the feast of the Passover, an identification which is not entirely wrong. In Luke 22: 7 too the author retains an echo of this identification.
- Pesach is here! (teenainjerusalem.wordpress.com)
We have been preparing for this holiday for more than a month! Finishing all our leaven. Cleaning our whole houses. Scrubbing our pots and ovens. Burning our last leaven. Cooking food for the holiday. Decorating the house and ourselves. Calling friends and relatives to wish them a joyous and kosher Pesach. And the long awaited holiday is finally here!! Baruch ata she hechianu… Thanking God for having brought us to this time!
This Jewish holiday can be summed up the same way almost all the Jewish holidays can: “They tried to kill us. The didn’t succeed. Let’s EAT!!” And yes, we celebrate by eating, – lots of symbolic foods, four cups of wine and a very yummy holiday meal. We eat bitter herbs to remember slavery in Egypt, unleavened bread to remember the haste in which we had to leave, we have a lamb bone to remind us of the blood that was put on the doorposts which saved the firstborns from the angel of death, we dip vegetables in salt water to remind us of our tears, we eat a sweet mixture of fruits and nuts to reminds us of mortar we used to put the bricks together in building, etc.

- The Seven Feasts of Israel: (Part I) (bibletim.wordpress.com)
a series … on the Seven Feasts of Israel.
The disciples of old, as are the Christians of today, were instructed to “drink of this cup!” So, the Christian celebrates Passover by participating in the sacrifice of the Lord! In Egypt the Jew marked his house with the blood of the lamb. Today the Christian (Jew and Gentile alike) marks his house- his body, “the house of the spirit”- with the blood of Christ! The Angel of Death will pass over each Christian as surely as he passed over the Israelite in Egypt.

When an American friend first introduced me to Pesach rolls I thought they were such a cheat – surely something soft and fluffy with air in it couldn’t be kosher unleaven bread? But when they taste this good – why not?
- End Time Prophecies Hidden in the 7 Feasts of Israel (vineoflife.net)
Have you ever wondered why seven feasts were given to the Israelite‘s in the book of Leviticus? Or why God would give such specific instructions on how to celebrate and commemorate events? Obviously He had a reason, otherwise he wouldn’t have put them in the Bible. ‘The feasts of the Lord, which you shall proclaim to be holy convocations, these are My feasts.” Lev. 23:2Here God calls the feasts, His feasts, he makes it personal and claims them as his own. Not only that, but he uses the words, “holy convocations,” to describe them. In other words, these are sacred celebrations with purpose and meaning. They were given not only to the Israelite’s in Biblical times, but are for believers today.
I am excited. Tonight we will begin celebrating Chag Ha Aviv – Passover, our spring holiday – also named Chag HaMatzot the holiday of unleavened bread. But why do we eat unleavened bread –matzah – on Passover? We read in the Haggadah:
Because the dough of our fathers did not have time to become leavened before the King of the kings, the Holy One, blessed be God, revealed God’s self to them and redeemed them. Thus it is said: “They baked Matzah-cakes from the dough that they had brought out of Egypt, because it was not leavened; for they had been driven out of Egypt and could not delay, and they had also not prepared any [other] provisions.” (DIY Haggadah)
