Shavuot – Understanding the Power of Pentecost – 1
The Biblical feast of Shavuot is known as the Day of Pentecost, the Festival of Harvest (First-fruits), and The Festival of Weeks. This important feast commemorates 7 weeks or 50 days exactly from Passover, which is why it is called Pentecost (“Fiftieth day” in Greek), and it is to celebrate the first-fruits of the harvest. After Yeshua rose from the dead, He told His disciples to wait for what God was about to do. So it was no coincidence that He waited until the 50th day and poured out His Holy Spirit on the believers in Jerusalem on the Day of the Harvest (“Shavuot” – Pentecost) Many times Yeshua spoke and emphasized the topic of the Harvest, saying the fields are white and ready for Harvest. He told us to pray to the Lord of the Harvest to send out workers into the fields. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit on the day of Pentecost in Jerusalem was the beginning of the spiritual Harvest God was beginning to collect among his first-fruits (first disciples).
