Shavuot is the Hebrew name for the FEAST OF WEEKS. It is a feast of the LORD. This is not a feast of the Jews. It is the LORD’S feast. It is one of the Spring feasts. It is a time of rejoicing for the Saints of the Most High! It is also a Holy Convocation ( a rehearsal) for the gathering of the Saints at the end time harvest. It was an Agricultural feast. It is associated with the giving of the TORAH to Moses on Mount Sinai. The 10 commandments were given at this time. It is a feast of a wedding betrothal or Covenant between Yahuah and his people Israel. All Israel, Jew and Gentile. Yah entered into a marriage covenant at Mount Sinai, but as we see later was broken when his people made a golden calf and worshipped it. At that time we broke our marriage vows to Yah and went into an adulteress relationship with other gods. He divorced us. In the Torah it is written that once a man divorces a women and marries another, if the woman he divorces marries another man and he dies, she CANNOT remarry her first husband unless He dies. How can you marry a dead man??? Well, we see that Yah had a plan all along! GOD himself came in the flesh! Yeshua Messiah! He died and rose again! Yeshua is ALL of GOD in a human body! He paid the price to re-marry his unfaithful wife! Now she is free to re-marry her first love and husband. Yeshua NEVER breaks his commandments! He alone fulfilled his word and promise to his people. Now Yeshua is the FIRST FRUITS of many brethren! HalleluYAH! We did NOTHING to bring this to pass! He alone did this mighty act of love and forgiveness. We didn’t deserve it! Praise Yah we are the partakers of this amazing grace!
The word Pentecost means 50. The word Shavuot comes from the word meaning weeks and the number 7 in Hebrew. Pentecost comes from a Greek translation. The number 7 is the number of completion. We find this throughout scripture.
Gen 2:2 And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made.
This why we MUST keep the 7th day Holy! Man changed the seventh day to the 1rst day Sunday. Constantine changed the 7th to the 1rst. GOD never changes his mind. Man changed the Sabbath day from Saturday to Sunday! The TRUE Sabbath is our marriage covenant according to scripture.
Exo_31:13 Speak thou also unto the children of Israel, saying, Verily my sabbaths ye shall keep: for it is a sign between me and you throughout your generations; that ye may know that I am the LORD that doth sanctify you. Exo_31:17 It is a sign between me and the children of Israel for ever: for in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, and on the seventh day he rested, and was refreshed. Eze_20:12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them. Eze_20:20 And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God.
The Sabbaths are a wedding ring! A marriage contract! No wonder Satan wants us to keep another day! He does not want us to be married to and committed to ONE, but many gods, thereby committing adultery! We have played the Harlot long enough! Let us return in repentance back to our FIRST LOVE!
Rev_2:4 Nevertheless I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.
Now we see that Pentecost and the Feast of weeks are the same thing. In the book of Acts we see the fulfillment of this feast when those from many nations came to Jerusalem for the Feast of Shavuot.
Act 2:1 And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.
Act 2:2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
Act 2:3 And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them.
Act 2:4 And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Act 2:5 And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
Act 2:6 Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language.
Act 2:7 And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans?
Act 2:8 And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?
This is when the promise of the Father was given. The fire of Yah fell on those 120 that day! Yahuah has many times appeared by fire. He appeared in a burning bush, in a pillar of fire to lead the children of Israel thru the wilderness, and then as fire on Pentecost! As a result we see that many were brought into the kingdom of GOD that day.
Act 2:41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
It is interesting to note that 3,000 souls died in the wilderness by their disobedience.
Exo 32:26 Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD’S side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.
Exo 32:27 And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man his sword by his side, and go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp, and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his neighbour.
Exo 32:28 And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there fell of the people that day about three thousand men.
Now we see that by one man’s obedience, Yeshua, 3,000 were saved! What a promise of restoration! This what happens when we obey from our hearts the commands of our Father. The disciples were assembled together at the right place and the right TIME! We see now why it is important to keep
Yahuah’s Feasts on the right time. Sabbath is the 7th day not the 1rst! He has said, I will meet with you on these days! It is his calendar, not the Pope’s! We don’t hear his voice when we are not in one accord. The Disciple’s were in ONE ACCORD. Now we have many of Yah’s people divided into different denominations. When we come together at the TRUE time according to Yah’s calendar, THINGS HAPPEN, The FIRE falls and many come to the TRUE knowledge of the LORD. Deliverance takes place, healings, signs and wonders happen because we are obedient to his commands. He does not delight in our sacrifices but in obedience.
1Sa 15:22 And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.
The prosperity Gospel has turned many away from the Truth. Many now think that because they give to the leadership money that this is what brings Yah’s blessing. Because of this lie, many are discouraged when they can’t give and feel that GOD has forsaken them and is displeased when they can’t give MONEY. Yahuah hates this!!
Isa 56:10 His watchmen are blind: they are all ignorant, they are all dumb dogs, they cannot bark; sleeping, lying down, loving to slumber.
Isa 56:11 Yea, they are greedy dogs which can never have enough, and they are shepherds that cannot understand: they all look to their own way, every one for his gain, from his quarter.
There is a gathering of the TRUE people of GOD in this last hour. He will gather from the 4 corners of the earth his TRUE CHURCH!
Isa 56:1 Thus saith the LORD, Keep ye judgment, and do justice: for my salvation is near to come, and my righteousness to be revealed.
Isa 56:2 Blessed is the man that doeth this, and the son of man that layeth hold on it; that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and keepeth his hand from doing any evil.
Isa 56:3 Neither let the son of the stranger, that hath joined himself to the LORD, speak, saying, The LORD hath utterly separated me from his people: neither let the eunuch say, Behold, I am a dry tree.
Isa 56:4 For thus saith the LORD unto the eunuchs that keep my sabbaths, and choose the things that please me, and take hold of my covenant;
Isa 56:5 Even unto them will I give in mine house and within my walls a place and a name better than of sons and of daughters: I will give them an everlasting name, that shall not be cut off.
Isa 56:6 Also the sons of the stranger, that join themselves to the LORD, to serve him, and to love the name of the LORD, to be his servants, every one that keepeth the sabbath from polluting it, and taketh hold of my covenant;
Isa 56:7 Even them will I bring to my holy mountain, and make them joyful in my house of prayer: their burnt offerings and their sacrifices shall be accepted upon mine altar; for mine house shall be called an house of prayer for all people.
Isa 56:8 The Lord GOD which gathereth the outcasts of Israel saith, Yet will I gather others to him, beside those that are gathered unto him.
Are we ready for the Latter Rain outpouring of the Holy Spirit? Turn from Tradition and lies and turn to the TRUTH Yeshua Messiah in repentance and he will give you the gift of the Holy Spirit!
Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Act 2:39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of many as the Lord our God shall call.
