Spring Holy Days 2013
Praise God, Tuesday evening May 14th begins The LORD’S Appointed Holy Day- Pentecost, which is called in Hebrew Shavuot. We first read about this Biblical Holy Day in Leviticus 23:15-22. Later we find Yeshua’s first disciples celebrating this day in the book of Acts 2:1-5.
Although historically this was an agricultural feast, it became associated with the day the LORD gave the Children of Israel the Ten Commandments at Mt. Sinai. In Acts 2, where thousands of Yeshua’s disciples were celebrating this feast, the same God that appeared to them on Mount Sinai in fire and glory (Exodus 19:18), appeared to them again in fire and filled them with His Spirit.
At Pentecost/Shavuot God went from reaching us through tablets of stone, to touching us by His Spirit in our hearts. God’s relationship with man has moved from the outer to the inner, and because of this we are eternally empowered to move forward in our relationship with Him.
Final atonement for sin was accomplished at Passover. The gift of the Holy Spirit was given at Pentecost-Shavuot. Hallelujah!
Shalom, love and blessings to you in Messiah Yeshua
