4. This is the conclusion to what Paul is saying
When he said, "let us keep the feast," (1Cor.5:8) was speaking "the wisdom of God in a mystery
(1Cor.2:7).As the apostle and "wise master builder" (1Cor.3:10) he is building a spiritual truth
concerning leaven from the blueprint language of the Old Testament "ensample" or type
a. The entire Corinthian Church was to "purge out...the old leaven"
Purge out the leaven of this person and "deliver such an one unto Satan for the destruction
of the flesh, that the spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord Jesus" (1 Cor 5:5-7). This is in
accordance to the type, where Israel was to "put away (purge) leaven out of their houses

d. This feast is "written for our admonition" to give us insight into our future
Now "all these things (including the Feast of Unleavened Bread) happened unto them for
ensamples: (types) and are "written for our (The New Testament Church) admonition, upon
whom the ends of the world are come" (1 Cor 10:11-12). This feast "links" to the Feast of
Passover, which “links” to the other two Feasts that Israel, was to keep (Deut.16:16).
(1) If you use the word "yeast" then...
What Paul wrote "For even Christ our Passover is sacrificed for us" will make no sense.
What happens is that the saint overlooks the connection between Passover and Christ,
thinking it is just an old King James out of date language. Some would even think that
this is meant only for the Jewish people. However, it makes perfect sense when you
understand the Bible Language of the Feast of Passover (Exod.12:1-20 Phase 8). The
blood of the Passover Lamb set Israel free which is what the blood of Christ does for us
when we are set free from sin. (Freed from the bondage of Egypt / Sin / Review: Phase 2)
The Feast of Unleavened bread also holds a type / shadow of Water Baptism
(Phase 8). Both involve a cutting off of the flesh or our old life.
(2) If you use the word "yeast" then...
You break an important connection. If you miss the connection between the Feast of Passover
and the other Feasts (Pentecost and Tabernacles), you will miss God's calendar for the church
in the wilderness and the New Testament Church (Acts.7:38, 1Cor.10:11, Rom.15:4).
Without this connection we would not know about God's calendar for the New
Testament Church. Now it makes sense why they waited in the upper room for the
"day of Pentecost" to "fully come."(Acts.2:1Review: Phase 9) it was to keep that Feast
in its reality. Also you will not see there is still a feast that the Church has not come to
yet, the Feast of Tabernacles.
(3) If you use the word "yeast" then..
You likely may just read over the Biblical language, "Purge out therefore the old
leaven, that ye may be a new lump, as ye are unleavened" (1Cor.5:7). Most likely you
may dismiss it as old King James language that does not relate to modern
Christianity. This is a mistake because "unleavened bread" isBible Language that
is timeless and relates to any generation. In the language of the Feast day they
had the responsibility to make sure no leaven would be found in their houses.
(Exod.12:15-20) This is what the apostle and wise master builder /architect (1Cor.3:10)
was reading in the blueprint. Paul told the Corinthians that they had the
responsibility to excommunicate this believer (1Cor.5:11-13).
(4) If you use the word "yeast" then...
You may likely overlook the seriousness of allowing leaven to continue. Leaven found in
their house ment that their "soul shall be cut off  from Israel" (Ex. 12:15).
