The Feast of Weeks Pentecost
There are seven feasts of the Lord recorded in Leviticus Chapter 23. Passover (Jesus was the Passover Lamb that was sacrificed once and for all), Unleavened Bread (Jesus was the unleavened, without sin, bread of life), First Fruits (Jesus was resurrected on First Fruits, He was the first of many to come), The Feast of Weeks (Shavuot or Pentecost).
The Feast of Weeks is the fourth feast. This feast occurs 50 days after First Fruits. The Feast of Weeks is known as Shavuot or Pentecost. The Feast of Weeks celebrated the wheat harvest.
The very first Shavuot was celebrated some 3500 years ago on Mount Sinai when Moses was given the commandments (instructions for life). About 2000 years ago Jesus told His followers to wait for the promise of the Father. Acts1:4. When the day of Pentecost (Shavuot) was fully come, Acts 2:4 says, they were all filled with the Holy Spirit as prophesied by Joel.
Interestingly fire was present at the first Shavuot, Exodus 19:18. In Acts 2:3 tongues as of fire appeared. The first Shavuot about 3000 men died because of their disobedience, Exodus 32:28. In Acts 2:41, because of obedience about 3000 souls were added to the Kingdom.
May 19 we celebrate the Feast of Weeks (Shavuot or Pentecost). May you have a greater understanding of His plan in fulfilling the Feasts of the Lord as you study His Word.
The last three feasts, Trumpets, Day of Atonement and Tabernacles occur toward fall and they are yet to be fulfilled.
