Happy Pentecost!

Today (Wed night-Thurs day) is Pentecost, the Feast of Weeks also known as the Feast of the Firstfruits. About this time, God came down on Sinai in fire with a great sound and spoke His Law, and wrote it with His fiery finger on tables of stone in a Covenant with His people. Some 1500 years later, in the city of Zion God came down with a great noise and tongues of fire upon the spiritual Mt Zion (the city of God, New Jerusalem, the church) and made the New Covenant a reality in the lives of His people, writing His law upon their hearts causing them to speak forth the praises of God in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance.

Pentecost was the climax to the Passover, both in Exodus, and in the New Testament. It also represented the sanctification of the Firstfruits, because during Passover a sheaf of the first fruits was waved before God in the Temple, sanctifying the first harvest that would come 50 days later. Christ resurrected on that day of waving the sheaf of the first fruits, making the later first fruits harvest HOLY and ACCEPTABLE to God - the disciples of Jesus the Christ.

Once that first harvest came in, the long march to the final fall harvest at Tabernacles began. Pentecost provided the food to sustain the people until the later harvest at the Feast of Ingathering. If you have experienced Pentecost yourself, it is designed to equip you for service as a sanctified vessel of the Lord, until the ingathering is complete. It is there to sustain you until Tabernacles - when you leave your normal house and dwell in a Tabernacle ordained by God, with God Himself Tabernacling with us, as it is written, "Behold, the Tabernacle of God is with men."

Pentecost isn't the pinnacle of our walk with God - it points back to Passover but looks forward toward Tabernacles.

Let's press on beyond Pentecost. Let us press on toward Tabernacles, where a FULL AND COMPLETE HARVEST AWAITS!

Re: Happy Pentecost!

Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.
