Manna – Leaven; The Paradigm of False Teachers
Lest Satan should get an advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices. 2 Corinthians 2:11 KJV
Worthy Is the Lamb. The King of Kings, and the Lord of Lords. Jesus our Lord and Savior.
To the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. All the Glory and Honor Forever Amen!
The Lord Spoke the “Truth” From the “Beginning”. Although, the great “I AM’ always was.
- WE ARE COMMANDED TO FOLLOW THE TRUTH!!
2. AND TO CORRECT THOSE WHO ARE IN ERROR!!
- The “ TRUTH”
- 2nd Timothy 3:16-17
16 All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for Correction, for instruction in righteousness:
17 That the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
The Importance of understanding the difference between Manna and Leaven is extremely important!!!
Why? Because of wolves in sheep clothings.
- A) 1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

Manna means to prepare, because it was food prepared from heaven for the Israelites in the wilderness. Manna is also represented by Jesus Christ
Leaven is not prepared by God, but rather from decay. After the fall of man when sin entered the world so did death and decay, the process leading to death. Leaven is an active, literally working ingredient, an enzyme (see meaning of enzyme in footnotes) that decays – breaks down – mitigates by sedation – changes to make more pleasing, soothing – to sugar – ferment into alcohol (see meaning of fermentation in footnotes.) that is produced from decay. New Bible translations stemming from Greek Text from Alexandria are completely tainted from the Vatican text Latin Vulgate attempt to translate Leaven as a good thing as in lifting something up as in yeast makes things rise.
See Footnote Below on Understanding from God’s word the Importance knowing the meaning and purpose of Manna – the very Bread of Life Jesus Christ- and the meaning and evil purpose of Leaven. To understand that Manna comes from God to feed His children and Leaven is used as a grievous and most treacherous tool of Satan. obtained by usurping his position over mankind and the world after the fall.
This study is based on the authority of God’s word. The King James Version Bible translation. See footnotes below regarding reasons why Bible translations do matter.
Today most, if not all of Bible Scholars and Theologians use corrupted Bible Translations to sprinkle in their leaven.
In every current modern (since 1960’s) Bible study we’ve seen, the Bible teacher is using corrupted Bible translations and perverting twisted interpretations ensue.

Christ the True Manna
“This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.” John 6:50
“To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna,” Revelation 2:17
Christ, and the graces of Christ, are called Manna.
Manna means to prepare, because it was food prepared from heaven for the Israelites in the wilderness.
What is it?
Enzyme: enzyme (n.) means Leaven which is a substance that causes fermentation which is process of chemical alteration. Fermentation literally means to rot or spoil. Fermentation is a metabolic process that consumes sugar in the absence of oxygen. The products are organic acids, gases, or alcohol. It occurs in yeast and bacteria, and also in oxygen-starved muscle cells, as in the case of lactic acid fermentation. The science of fermentation is known as zymology.
1881, as a biochemical term, from German Enzym, coined 1878 by German physiologist Wilhelm Kühne (1837-1900), from Modern Greek enzymos “leavened,” from en “in” (see en- (2)) + zyme “leaven” (see zymurgy). Related: Enzymotic.
zymurgy – branch of chemistry which deals with wine-making and brewing, 1868, from Greek zymo-, combining form of zyme “a leaven” (from PIE root *yeue-; see juice) + -ourgia “a working,” from ergon “work” (from PIE root *werg- “to do” Also literally meaning to Work. Research meaning further to verify.
What is the meaning of Leaven in the Bible:
Leaven = Deception
Sun Tzu wrote that, “All warfare is based on deception.” Deception is Satan’s finest tool, he used in the garden of Eden and has been using it ever since. Jesus Christ tells us that Satan is a Liar, the Father of Lies and he only comes to kill, steal, and destroy. We are also told that Satan also comes as an angel of light. Genesis 3:14; John 8:42-45; John 10:10; 2 Corinthians 11:14… All said, Deception is used to commit war on the Saints.
To fully understand that God considered Leaven to be evil look at Leviticus chapter 2, Exodus 12:8; 34:18; Deuteronomy 16:3 when he commanded the Israelites not to use leaven and in detail to eat Unleavened Bread at Passover. In the New Testament the most powerful testimony against Leaven and how it is working in this present church age is Matthew 13:33.
Matthew 13:33 KJV reads as follows: Another parable spake he unto them; The kingdom of heaven is like unto leaven, which a woman took, and hid in three measures of meal, till the whole was leavened.”
In making a powerful illustration of how Jesus taught us of these end times using Leaven to bring in the end. we take a quote from “The Coming Kingdom” by Dr. Andrew Woods pgs 128-124.
Please NOTE: We had to issue a strong reprove warning Dr. Woods that his work, although well written and strong defender of the truth exposing many false teachers out there, we found that he was using a perverted Bible translation the NASB which in doing so caused him needless grief in trying to explain and defend his positions. It was also quite embarrassing for a Phd to make such errors in their presentation. We found the greatest irony was in the midst of presenting his case for leaven is a sign of the evil prevailing in our current age, he was in fact sprinkling in his own leaven and especially in his work trying to explain Luke 17:20,21 and contradicting great theologians of old.
What’s happening here is without doubt, all new pastors, teachers, Bible scholars and Theologians are coming out of their institutions with tainted fruit and are in fact spouting heresy. This apostate corruption is right out of the Bible warning of last days.
The Lesson here is to be a good Berean to read and check and test all against scripture. Do not take anyone’s word without backing up every word with the Word of God which is the King James Bible.
Begin quote from The Coming Kingdom. Parable of the Leaven:
“The following The Parable of the Leaven Christ gave the Parable of the Leaven in Matthew 13:33. This verse says, “He spoke another parable to them, ‘The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three pecks of flour until it was all leavened.’” Perhaps more than any of the other parables found in Matthew 13, this parable is used by kingdom now theologians to teach that the kingdom is a present, spiritual reality. They interpret the yeast as the progress of the kingdom in the present world. Unfortunately numerous commentators miss the clear import of Christ’s teaching in the Parable of the Leaven (Matt. 13:33) by interpreting the leaven as something good rather than bad. Notice popular pastor John MacArthur’s interpretation of Matthew 13:33. The first point is that small things can have great influence. . . . The second point . . . is that the influence is positive. . . . When the kingdom of heaven is faithfully reflected in the lives of believers, its influence in the world is both pervasive and positive. The life of Christ within believers is spiritual and moral leavening in the world. . . . To the average person of Jesus’ day, Jew or Gentile, there is no evidence that leaven carried any connotation of evil or corruption. . . . To take this leaven as representing evil that permeates the kingdom is to twist the obvious meaning and construction of words.13 Elsewhere, MacArthur notes: Here the kingdom is pictured as yeast, multiplying quietly and permeating all that it contacts. The lesson is the same as the parable of the mustard seed. Some interpreters suggested since leaven is nearly always a symbol of evil in Scripture. . . . It must carry that connotation here as well. They make the leaven some evil influence inside the kingdom. But that twists Jesus’ actual words and violates the context, in which Jesus is repeatedly describing the kingdom itself as their pervading influence.14 Concerning MacArthur’s interpretation, George Zeller appropriately notes: MacArthur’s interpretation is not far away from that of the postmillennial reconstructionist who also would understand the leaven as being used in a good sense and indicating the growth of the kingdom of heaven by means of the penetrating power of the gospel ultimately leading to the conversion of the world.15 Yet, when the yeast is properly understood as something pernicious rather than something that is good, an exact opposite interpretation is provided. Pink provides seven clues for properly interpreting the Parable of the Leaven. The popular interpretation of this parable regards the “leaven” as representing the Gospel and its power, the “woman” the Church. Here are the words of Dr. John Gill: “Leaven is everywhere else used in a bad sense . . . here it seems to be taken in a good sense, and the Gospel to be compared unto it.” The “woman,” he tells us, is “the church” or the ministers of the Gospel. . . . 1. If the popular view is correct then, in this chapter, Christ flatly contradicts Himself. What He has said in the first three parables is dead against world-conversion or even world-reformation by means of Gospel preaching. . . . 2. The post-millennial interpretation of this parable is flatly contradicted by what we are told in verses 11, 35 of Matthew 13. There we learn that these parables are “mysteries of the kingdom of heaven,” “things which have been kept secret from the foundation of the world.” . . . the Gospel was not an unrevealed secret in O. T. times. Galatians 3:8 declares that the Gospel was “preached unto Abraham.” . . . 3. If the “leaven” represents the Gospel and the “meal” the human race, or, as Dr. Gill teaches, God’s elect in their natural condition then the figure which Christ here employed is a faulty one. And this in three different respects. First, in the way it works. How does “leaven” act? Why, it is simply placed in meal, and then it works of itself! That is all: just place it there, leave it alone, and it is bound to leaven the whole lump. But is that the way the Gospel works? Certainly not. Multitudes have received the Gospel, but it has had no effect upon them! . . . Second, in the actor here mentioned. It is a “woman” who places the leaven in the meal. But the Lord Jesus Christ has not committed His Gospel into the hands of women. There were none among the twelve, nor among the seventy whom he chose and sent forth. The preaching of the Gospel is a man’s job. . . . Third, in the effects it produces. When leaven is placed into meal it causes it to swell, it puffs it up! Is that what the Gospel does when it enters human hearts? No indeed. It produces the very opposite effect. It humbles, it abases. 4. The popular interpretation is contradicted by the plain facts of history and by present-day experience. . . . The Gospel has now been preached for nineteen centuries, yet not a single nation or state, no, nor even city, town or village, has been completely evangelized—let alone won to Christ! If the popular view is the correct one, then the Gospel is a colossal and tragic failure. 5. To make the “leaven” a figure of the Gospel and its power, of that which is good, is to contradict every other passage in Scripture where this figure is used. Christ was speaking to a Jewish audience, and with their knowledge of the O. T. Scriptures none of them would ever dream that He had reference to something that was good. With the Jews “leaven” was ever a figure of evil. The first time that “leaven,” in its negative form, occurs in the Bible is in Genesis 19:3, where we are told that Lot “did bake un-leavened bread” for the angels, and that “they did eat.” No doubt leavened bread was a common commodity in the wicked city of Sodom. . . . In Exodus 12 it will be found that Jehovah commanded the Israelites to rigidly purge their houses of all “leaven” at the Passover season. Why was this if “leaven” is a type of that which is good? Exodus 34:25 tells us that God prohibited any “leaven” from accompanying offerings of blood. Leviticus 2:11 informs us that “leaven” was also excluded from every offering of the Lord made by fire. This parable in Matthew 13 is not the only occasion when the Lord Jesus employed this figure. How did He use it elsewhere? In Matthew 16:11 we find Him saying to the disciples, “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.” There, it is plainly a figure of that which is evil. So in Luke 12:1 He said, “Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees which is hypocrisy.” Would He then deliberately confuse His disciples by using it as the figure of good in Matthew 13? The Holy Spirit has also used this same figure through the apostle Paul. In what manner? In 1 Corinthians 5:6, 7 we read, “Know ye not that a little leaven leaveneth the whole lump? Purge out therefore the old leaven, that ye may be a new lump.” Would they be told to “purge out” that which was good? The last passage in the N. T. in which “leaven” is mentioned is Galatians 5:7–9. Note there three things: first, it is called “a persuasion”—something which exerts a powerful and moving influence. Second, it hinders men “from obeying the truth.” Third, it is expressly said to be “not from Him which calleth you.” Thus, that which is a thing of fermentation—really, incipient putrefaction—is, throughout Scripture, uniformly a figure of corruption—evil. It is remarkable that the word “leaven” occurs just thirteen times in the N. T., a number always associated with evil and the work of Satan. 6. Let us now consider the “three measures of meal.” Post-millennarians say that they represent the human race among whom the Gospel is working. If so, the “meal” is a figure of that which is evil. The human race is fallen, sinful, depraved; “the whole world lies in the Wicked one” (1 John 5:19). . . . “And Abram hastened into the tent unto Sarah, and said, Make ready quickly three measures of fine meal, knead it, and make cakes upon the hearth” (Gen. 18:6). Did Abraham prepare for the Lord and His angels food out of that which symbolized evil? Note what is said in 1 Kings 17:14–16. God does not feed His servants on that which speaks of evil! Now where does “meal” for bread come from? Any child can answer: not from evil tares, but from good wheat. It is the product of the good Seed. Then that which is good, wholesome, nutritious, pure, can never be a figure of fallen and corrupt humanity. In Genesis 18:6 the “three measures of meal” are a figure of Christ’s person, just as the “tender calf” in verse 7 which was killed and dressed prefigured His work. The meal is a type of Him who is the Corn of wheat (John 12:24) and the Bread of life. And thus in the language of N. T. symbolry the “meal” stands for the doctrine of Christ. 7. The action of the “woman” in our parable exposes the error of the common interpretation. She “took,” not “received;” and hid the leaven in the meal. Is this the way in which the servants of God preach His Gospel? Is the evangel something to be whispered in secret? Does God bid His servants act stealthily? No. The Lord has said to them, “What I tell you in darkness, that speak ye in light: and what ye hear in the ear, that preach ye upon the housetop” (Matthew 11:27). Writing to the Corinthians, and describing the character of his own ministry, the apostle Paul said, “We faint not, but have renounced the hidden things of dishonesty, not walking in craftiness, nor handling the Word of God deceitfully, but by manifestation of the truth commending ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God” (2 Cor. 4:2). But in our parable, the woman is acting dishonestly and deceitfully: she stealthily introduced a foreign and corrupting element into the meal. Her object was to effect its deterioration. If the reader will turn to Leviticus 2:11 he will find that this “woman” was doing the very thing which the Word of God forbade her; and he will also observe that she left out the oil, which was the very thing the Scriptures enjoined! . . . The “leaven” symbolizes the corrupting of God’s truth by the introduction of evil doctrine—compare Matthew 16:12.16 Pink’s understanding of the leaven working its way through the dough as representing something evil rather than something good is consistent with the interpretation provided by other respected scholars. As previously noted, both Walvoord and Toussaint interpret the leaven in a negative sense. Thus, far from teaching the growth of the kingdom, the Parable of the Leaven, like the previous Parable of the Mustard Seed, is actually a parable concerning the progress of evil in the present age.”

The Lord’s Holy Word is like Manna. It’s good for the soul, and will lead you to the Father through Christ Jesus, and eternity in heaven.
Satan is a Liar and a sneek. He’s truly a snake like he was in the garden.
Satan can’t by nature create anything. And his leaven is toxic poison for the soul, and will lead you to death and hell.
Before we watch, read, and listen to anyone about Jesus and His Holy Word we must: PRAY!! Pray, that we will understand what is going on.
The reason is this: Satan wants to slither in and poison good fruit.
Whether intentional or unintentional: folks are putting YouTube Videos, letters, sermons, blogs, and books mixing the “Truth” with the lie.
