ON THE DAY THAT BEGAN THE COUNT TO SHAVUOT / PENTECOST, THE DAY AFTER THE SATURDAY SABBATH ON SUNDAY OF THE PASSOVER WEEK, THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD, AND HE BREATHED ON HIS JEWISH DISCIPLES, AND SAID, RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.

Shalom,

This evening at sundown is the beginning of Shavuot, also called The Feast of Weeks, and Pentecost.  Shavuot is a one day Festival of The LORD, and it falls fifty days from the Day after The Saturday Sabbath on Sunday of The Passover week.

Our teaching will be from The Words that GOD spoke to Moses about Shavuot / Pentecost that are recorded in Torah, The Law of Moses in Leviticus 23.15-22.

AND THE TITLE OF OUR MESSAGE IS, ON THE DAY THAT BEGAN THE COUNT TO SHAVUOT / PENTECOST, THE DAY AFTER THE SATURDAY SABBATH ON SUNDAY OF THE PASSOVER WEEK, THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WAS RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD, AND HE BREATHED ON HIS JEWISH DISCIPLES, AND SAID, RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.

And with that said, let’s read Leviticus 23.15-22.

LEVITICUS 23.15-16  AND YOU SHALL NUMBER TO YOU FROM THE DAY AFTER THE SABBATH FROM THE DAY YOU BROUGHT IN THE SHEAF OF THE WAVE OFFERING, SEVEN COMPLETE SABBATHS SHALL THEY BE,

TO THE DAY AFTER THE SEVENTH SABBATH YOU SHALL NUMBER FIFTY DAYS, AND YOU SHALL BRING A GRAIN OFFERING TO THE LORD.

I HAVE ALWAYS BELIEVED THAT THE SHEAF OF THE WAVE OFFERING THAT WAS WAVED BY THE PRIEST BEFORE THE LORD IS PROPHETIC OF THE RESURRECTION OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, AND PERHAPS THE RESURRECTION OF HIS HOLY ONES, ALSO CALLED SAINTS. 

LEVITICUS 23.4-6, 9-12

A SHEAF IS AN OMER, OR A BUNDLE, PERHAPS OF GRAIN THAT WAS WAVED BY THE PRIEST BEFORE THE LORD.

THE HOLY ONES OF GOD ALSO CALLED SAINTS, OR K’DOE’SHIM IN HEBREW, ARE PEOPLE WHO HAVE FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR THEIR ATONEMENT, AND LIVE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE THAT INCLUDES THE LAW OF MOSES.

DEUTERONOMY 8.3, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, 1 JOHN 3.4

LET’S SET A FOUNDATION FOR THIS TEACHING.  MESSIAH YESHUA HELD HIS PASSOVER SEDER THAT CHRISTIANITY CALLS THE LAST SUPPER, ON WEDNESDAY EVENING, THE EVENING OF PASSOVER.  AND AFTER HIS SEDER, THE MESSIAH AND HIS DISCIPLES WENT TO A PLACE CALLED GETHSEMONE.  AND THERE IN GETHSEMONE HE WAS TAKEN BY A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WITH SWORDS AND CLUBS FROM THE CHIEF PRIESTS AND ELDERS OF THE PEOPLE.

AND A BOGUS TRIAL WAS HELD.  AND ON THE FOLLOWING DAY, THURSDAY, THE FIRST DAY OF PASSOVER, THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA WAS SENTENCED TO DEATH, ACCORDING TO THE SCRIPTURES, AND HE WAS KILLED ON A ROMAN STAKE, AND SHED HIS BLOOD TO BE CUT OFF OUT OF THE LAND OF THE LIVING FOR THE TRANSGRESSION OF HIS PEOPLE WAS HE STRICKEN.  FOR GOD MADE HIS SOUL AN OFFERING FOR SIN.  AND THE SCRIPTURES WERE FULFILLED.

MESSIAH WAS THEN BURIED IN A TOMB THE SAME DAY ON THURSDAY.  HE WAS DEAD AND IN THE TOMB FOR THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS; THURSDAY, FRIDAY, AND SATURDAY.  AND SATURDAY AFTER SUNDOWN, THE BEGINNING OF SUNDAY, ACCORDING TO THE LORD GOD, YESHUA THE MESSIAH ROSE FROM THE DEAD.

MESSIAH YESHUA WAS RESURRECTED ON THE DAY AFTER THE SATURDAY SABBATH ON SUNDAY, THE DAY THAT THE PRIEST WAVED THE WAVE OFFERING AT THE TEMPLE THAT STARTED THE COUNT TO SHAVUOT / PENTECOST.

AND LATE IN THE DAY, THE SAME DAY OF HIS RESURRECTION, WHEN HIS DISCIPLES WERE GATHERED TOGETHER, THE DOORS WERE SHUT, MESSIAH STOOD IN THE MIDST OF THEM, AND SAID TO THEM, PEACE BE UNTO YOU.  AND HE SHOWED THEM HIS HANDS AND HIS SIDE, AND HE SAID TO THEM, AS MY FATHER HAS SENT ME, EVEN SO I SEND YOU.  AND WHEN HE SAID THIS, HE BREATHED ON THEM, AND SAID, RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT.

MESSIAH YESHUA IS THE FATHER, THE SON OF GOD, THE MESSIAH, THE SPIRIT, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT, GOD ALMIGHTY, YEHOVAH, HA SHEM ELOHIM.

MARK 16.9, HEBREW BIBLE ISAIAH 9.5, CHRISTIAN BIBLE ISAIAH 9.6, ISAIAH 52.13-15, ISAIAH 53.1-12, JOHN 12.44-45, JOHN 14.9

JOHN 20.1-22, VERSE 19  MOST BIBLES READ, THE SAME DAY AT EVENING, OR SUNDAY EVENING BEING THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK WHEN THE DOORS WERE SHUT WHERE THE DISCIPLES WERE ASSEMBLED FOR FEAR OF THE JEWS, CAME YESHUA AND STOOD IN THE MIDST, AND SAID TO THEM, PEACE BE UNTO YOU.

SO I THOUGHT THAT THE SAME DAY AT EVENING BEING THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK COULD NOT BE CORRECT BECAUSE GOD’S DAY STARTS AT SUNDOWN.  SO I LOOKED UP THE WORD EVENING IN GREEK, AND THE GREEK WORD FOR EVENING IS OPSIOS THAT MEANS LATE AFTERNOON.  GENESIS 1.5

GENESIS 1.5  EVENING IN HEBREW IS EH’REV MEANING SUNDOWN AND NIGHT.  MORNING IN HEBREW IS VO’KEHR MEANING THE BREAK OF DAY AND DAY.

SO MESSIAH BREATHED ON HIS DISCIPLES THE HOLY SPIRIT THE SAME DAY HE WAS RESURRECTED LATE IN THE AFTERNOON ON SUNDAY.  IF IT WAS IN THE EVENING IT WOULD HAVE BEEN THE START OF MONDAY.

IT’S IMPORTANT BECAUSE IT IS IMPORTANT.  YESHUA WAS RAISED ON THE DAY AFTER THE SATURDAY SABBATH ON SUNDAY DURING THE DAYS OF PASSOVER.  AND HE ALSO GAVE HIS DISCIPLES THE HOLY SPIRIT ON THE DAY HE WAS RAISED FROM THE DEAD, ON SUNDAY.

MESSIAH’S RESURRECTION FULFILLS SCRIPTURE BECAUSE MESSIAH ROSE FROM THE DEAD ON THE DAY AFTER THE SATURDAY SABBATH ON SUNDAY THAT BEGAN THE COUNT TO SHAVUOT / PENTECOST, THE DAY THAT THE PRIEST WAVED THE SHEAF OF THE WAVE OFFERING.  AND ON THE SAME DAY, MESSIAH BREATHED ON HIS DISCIPLES THE HOLY SPIRIT.

LEVITICUS 23.17  PART OF GOD’S COMMAND FOR SHAVUOT / PENTECOST CALLS FOR TWO WAVE LOAVES OF BREAD THAT ARE ALSO WAVED.  THEY ARE THE FIRST FRUITS UNTO THE LORD.

THE FIRST FRUITS ARE THE FIRST AND BEST OF THE CROP.

AND MESSIAH AND HIS HOLY ONES, THE SAINTS ARE THE FIRST FRUITS OF ALL HE CREATED.

1 CORINTHIANS 15.20, JAMES 1.18, REVELATION 14.1-4 

THE FIRST FRUITS ARE THE FIRST AND THE BEST OF ALL GOD CREATED.

LEVITICUS 23.18-19  WHEN THE TEMPLE IS STANDING IN JERUSALEM, ANIMAL SACRIFICES WERE OFFERED, AND WILL BE OFFERED TO THE LORD FOR BURNT OFFERINGS, FOR SIN OFFERINGS, AND FOR PEACE OFFERINGS.

MULTITUDES TODAY HAVE IT WRONG.  SO MANY PEOPLE ARE TAUGHT THAT WHEN THEY BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST THEY NO LONGER HAVE TO DO WHAT GOD SAYS IN THE BIBLE BECAUSE THEY ARE TAUGHT THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED.

THE LAW OF MOSES JUST SO HAPPENS TO BE THE SPOKEN WORD OF GOD.  THEY ARE TOLD THAT ALL THEY HAVE TO DO IS BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST AND THEY HAVE A FIFTY YARD LINE SEAT IN HEAVEN.

TEACHING THAT THE LAW OF MOSES IS ABOLISHED IS TEACHING DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD. 

AND TEACHING DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD DOES NOT GET ANYONE INTO HEAVEN.

BLESSED ARE THEY THAT DO HIS COMMANDMENTS (THE LAW OF MOSES) THAT THEY MAY HAVE RIGHT TO THE TREE OF LIFE, AND MAY ENTER IN THROUGH THE GATES INTO THE CITY.

REVELATION 22.14 THE KING JAMES VERSION

MESSIAH YESHUA GAVE HIS LIFE FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS.  THAT IS, MESSIAH GAVE HIS LIFE TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS, TO BE OUR ATONEMENT. 

THAT’S WHAT HE SAID AT HIS PASSOVER SEDER, THE LAST SUPPER.  “FOR THIS IS MY BLOOD OF THE NEW TESTAMENT WHICH IS SHED FOR MANY FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS.”

JESUS NEVER SAID ANYWHERE, EVER THAT HE CAME TO ABOLISH THE LAW OF MOSES.  THAT IS ONE BOLD LIE.  JESUS DID NOT COME TO TEACH DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD.  JESUS IS GOD, GOD ALMIGHTY WHO CAME TO GIVE HIS LIFE FOR US AS A HUMAN BEING TO FORGIVE US OUR SINS THAT WE MAY HAVE LIFE.

THEN AFTER YOU HAVE FAITH IN MESSIAH YESHUA FOR YOUR ATONEMENT, GOD REQUIRES YOU TO LIVE YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE INCLUDING THE LAW OF MOSES.  THEN YOU ARE HOLY TO THE LORD.  AND GOD WILL GIVE YOU A GOOD, SUCCESSFUL, AND HEALTHY LIFE ON EARTH, AND ETERNAL LIFE IN HEAVEN.  AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL.

MATTHEW 26.28, MATTHEW 4.4, LUKE 4.4, DEUTERONOMY 8.3

A GOOD PERSONAL STUDY FOR EVERYONE IS THIS.  DO A SEARCH FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION AND DISCOVER THE REASON WHY GOD PUNISHES PEOPLE, SOMETIMES TO DEATH. 

AND YOU WILL FIND OUT THAT GOD PUNISHES PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY DISOBEY GOD.  THEY DISOBEY THE WORDS THAT GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE FROM GENESIS THROUGH REVELATION.

AND DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD IS WHAT IS BEING TAUGHT IN MANY BIBLE SETTINGS WHEN YOU ARE TAUGHT THAT THE LAW OF MOSES NEED NOT BE OBEYED.  THAT IS DISOBEDIENCE TO GOD, AND AS PAUL WRITES, YOU HAVE BELIEVED IN VAIN.

AND THERE ARE TIMES THAT GOD WILL TEST YOU TO KNOW WHAT IS IN YOUR HEART WHETHER YOU WILL OBEY HIS COMMANDMENTS, OR NOT.

1 CORINTHIANS 15.1-2, ROMANS 2.13, ROMANS 6.1-2, 1 JOHN 3.4, ROMANS 8.6-7, JOHN 5.14, JOHN 8.10, 11, ACTS 5.32, 1 PETER 1.1-2, DEUTERONOMY 8.2

ROMANS 6.1-2  PAUL TEACHES, SHALL WE CONTINUE TO SIN?  THAT IS, SHALL YOU CONTINUE TO BREAK THE LAW OF MOSES?  GOD FORBID.  1 JOHN 3.4

JOHN 5.14 AND JOHN 8.11  MESSIAH TEACHES YOU TO SIN NO MORE.  THAT IS TO SAY THAT MESSIAH TEACHES YOU TO NOT LIVE YOUR LIFE IN VIOLATION OF THE LAW OF MOSES, BUT RATHER LIVE YOUR LIFE BY THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 JOHN 3.4 

THEREFORE PEOPLE BELIEVE IN VAIN IF THEY TRANSGRESS THE LAW OF MOSES.  1 JOHN 3.4

LEVITICUS 23.20  AGAIN THE PRIEST WAVED PORTIONS FROM THE SACRIFICES WITH THE BREAD OF THE FIRST FRUITS FOR A WAVE OFFERING BEFORE THE LORD THAT ARE HOLY TO THE LORD FOR THE PRIEST. 

AGAIN, I BELIEVE THAT THE WAVE OFFERING WAS PROPHETIC FOR MESSIAH’S RESURRECTION AND THE RESURRECTION OF HIS HOLY ONES.

LEVITICUS 23.21  SHAVUOT / PENTECOST IS A HOLY CONVOCATION.  A TIME SET APART FOR THE LORD TO ATTEND A SERVICE THAT HONORS THE LORD YOUR GOD TO OBSERVE THIS HOLY DAY THAT IS A FEAST OF THE LORD. 

SHAVUOT / PENTECOST IS A SABBATH.  NO WORK OF ANY KIND IS TO BE DONE ON THAT DAY.  IT IS A STATUTE FOREVER THROUGHOUT THE GENERATIONS OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.  AND THAT IS FOREVER.

ISAIAH 66.22, ZECHARIAH 12.10, ZECHARIAH 13.6

ZECHARIAH 13.6  MY FRIENDS IN HEBREW IS M’AH’HAH’VY, MEANING, THOSE WHO LOVE ME.

LEVITICUS 23.22  AND WHEN HARVESTING YOUR HARVEST, LEAVE SOME FOR THE POOR AND FOR THE STRANGER.  I AM THE LORD YOUR GOD, THE LORD GOD SAYS.  AND YES, THE LORD TEACHES US KINDNESS ALSO.

SO IN CONCLUSION, SHAVUOT IS A TIME TO REMEMBER THE RESURRECTION OF THE JEWISH MESSIAH YESHUA, AND MESSIAH BREATHING ON HIS DISCIPLES THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THE RESURRECTION OF MESSIAH IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE WE, HIS HOLY ONES WHO LIVE OUR LIVES BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE, HAVING MESSIAH YESHUA FOR OUR ATONEMENT, WILL ALSO BE RESURRECTED FROM THE DEAD, OR WHILE WE ARE ALIVE AT MESSIAH’S RETURN TO BE WITH THE LORD FOREVER IN THE MILLENNIUM IN ISRAEL AND IN ETERNITY IN HEAVEN. 

AND IT IS CRITICAL TO UNDERSTAND THAT GOD GIVES THE HOLY SPIRIT TO THOSE WHO OBEY HIM.

BUT MOST IMPORTANT ABOUT SHAVUOT / PENTECOST IS TO LIVE YOUR LIFE BY EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  TO KNOW OF GOD’S GRACE AND KINDNESS, AND HIS LOVE FOR YOU.  AND REMEMBER THE SABBATH DAY FROM SUNDOWN FRIDAY TO SUNDOWN SATURDAY TO KEEP IT HOLY.  IT IS THE SABBATH OF THE LORD YOUR GOD.  IN IT YOU SHALL NOT DO ANY WORK.

AND SHAVUOT / PENTECOST IS A REMINDER THAT EVERYONE NEEDS ATONEMENT FOR THEIR SINS OF BREAKING THE LAW OF MOSES.  AND OUR ATONEMENT IS IN MESSIAH YESHUA, FOLLOWED BY OBEDIENCE TO EVERY WORD GOD SPEAKS IN THE BIBLE.  THAT IS ETERNAL LIFE, AND THAT IS THE GOSPEL.

AND REMEMBER THE LORD YOUR GOD IN EVERYTHING YOU DO, FOR HE IS GOD.  THERE ARE NO OTHERS.

Shalom,
