April 16th Easter Sunday ( First fruits ) is the 6th day of the feast of unleavened bread. And according to Scripture during these seven days of unleavened bread Israel was to get all the "leaven" out of their homes. And "leaven" represents "sin" in Scripture. And the Scriptures say that if any Jew ate any leaven, and was found with leaven in their homes at the END of these seven days, then they were to be "cut off " from the house of Israel. We know from Scripture that during the tribulation period "two thirds" of the Jews in the land of Israel will be "cut off" and perish ( Zech. 13:7-9 ).
Exodus 23:15 You shall observe the Feast of Unleavened Bread; for seven days you are to eat unleavened bread, as I commanded you, at the appointed time in the month Abib, for in it you came out of Egypt. And none shall appear before Me empty-handed.
Exodus 12:15 Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread, but on the first day you shall remove leaven from your houses; for whoever eats anything leavened from the first day until the seventh day, that person shall be cut off from Israel.
Exodus 12:19 Seven days there shall be no leaven found in your houses; for whoever eats what is leavened, that person shall be cut off from the congregation of Israel, whether he is an alien or a native of the land.
Now in light of these seven days of the feast of unleavened bread, then think about this prophetic picture here. The Church is already righteous and has been forgiven for "all sin" ( leaven ) for all time according to Scripture. We who have trusted in Christ and are saved will never have to give an account for our sin since Jesus paid for all of them. And so If the Lord happened to come for us this Easter Sunday which is the 6th day of unleavened bread, then unsaved national Israel who is still in their sin ( leaven ) would then enter the tribulation period of judgment.
The "cutting off " of any person in Israel at the END of these seven days of unleavened bread was due to eating leaven and having leaven in their homes. This seven day period of unleavened bread therefore represents the "seven year tribulation period", at which time at the conclusion of this period Christ will return and the wicked unbelieving Jews will be judged and "cut off from the house of Israel because they are still in their "sin" due to "unbelief." When Christ returns He will search Jerusalem with "lamps" searching for those wicked unbelieving Jews who are stagnant in spirit ( unsaved ).
Zephaniah 1:12 “It will come about at that time ( when Christ returns ) That I will search Jerusalem with lamps, And I will punish the men Who are stagnant in spirit, Who say in their hearts, ‘The Lord will not do good or evil!’
I believe that we can expect the Lord to show up for us at anytime now!
