Helping restore Father's people

to the Ancient Paths of scripture.

Walking in the Ten Words (Commandments) and the Power of the Holy Spirit

(Rev.12:17, Luk.10:19, Mat.28:19-20)

Isa.58:12


The Repairer of the Breach


SHAVUOT OR PENTECOST?


If you do not understand the true title for Shavuot (Feast of Weeks) and what it is portraying, you will not comprehend the true counting to Pentecost (fiftieth) day.


Lev 23:11 ‘And he shall wave the sheaf before יהוה , for your acceptance.  On the morrow after the Sabbath the priest waves it.  12 ‘And on that day when you wave the sheaf, you shall prepare a male lamb a year old, a perfect one, as a burnt offering to  יהוה 13 and its grain offering: two-tenths of an ĕphah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering made by fire to יהוה , a sweet fragrance, and its drink offering:  one-fourth of a hin of wine.  14 ‘And you do not eat bread or roasted grain or fresh grain until the same day that you have brought an offering to your Elohim – a law forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.  15 ‘And from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, you shall count for yourselves: seven completed Sabbaths.  16 ‘Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to יהוה .


Deu 16:9 “Count seven weeks for yourself.  Begin to count seven weeks from the time you begin to put the sickle to the grain.  10 “And you shall perform the Festival of Weeks to יהוה your Elohim, according to the voluntary offering from your hand, which you give as יהוה
your Elohim blesses you.  11 “And you shall rejoice before יהוה your Elohim, you and your son and your daughter, and your male servant and your female servant, and the Lĕwite who is within your gates, and the stranger and the fatherless and the widow who are in your midst, at the place where יהוה your Elohim chooses to make His Name dwell.



Why would YHWH emphasize the counting of weeks – 7 weeks plus one more day after the 7th Sabbath, instead of just telling us to count 50 days in succession?  What is He telling us about this Feast and its timing?  Could we possibly mess up the right time to observe this day?  If we do not stay on YHWH’s calendar, we could! How amazing it is that our Father has preserved His calendar for us by these simple instructions, for the only way to accomplish what He has set for us to do here is on His calendar – not the Roman one.  To count 7 Sabbaths undefiled can only be done with the perfect Sabbath week.
