Thus, the preparations of removing and keeping the leaven out, before as well as during the entire week of Passover, cautions us to examine and ready ourselves, spiritually.
Exodus 12:19 For seven days no yeast is to be found in your houses. For seven days no leaven is to be found in your houses.
These instructions to remove the leaven/sin from our lives may have been purposeful-to prepare us for His return during a future Passover season.
It is important to note that God warned of the dire consequences given to those who retain leaven/sin in their lives:
"Seven days shall ye eat unleavened bread; even the first day ye shall put away leaven out of your houses: for whosoever eateth leavened bread from the first day until the seventh day, that soul shall be cut off from Israel." Exodus 12:15
Thus, God may have provided ample warning that only those who have repented and sought to purge the leaven from their lives will be found worthy to be removed, prior to His wrath being unleashed on the unrepentant and lost.
Those who have not removed the leaven/sin would be among the foolish, unprepared virgins. They will be cut off from the Bride of Christ and left behind when Yeshua comes.
Many professing Christians are totally unaware that by devoting most of their time, energy and resources to worldly pursuits over God, they are living in sin, as adulteresses.
These are the foolish, lukewarm virgins who will be cut off/shut out when the Messiah comes:
Scripture also warns us to be thoroughly prepared and ready to depart at Passover:
"And thus shall you eat it; with your loins girded, your shoes on your feet, and your staff in your hand; and you shall eat it in haste: it is the LORD'S passover." Exodus 12:11
Therefore, may we all honestly evaluate ourselves and seek to remove all leaven/sin from our hearts and lives, so we can be ready to leave, hastily, at a moment's notice, "in the twinkling of an eye"!
"In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. 1 Corinthians 15:5
