In this YouTube video, Perry Stone explains the importance of the annually repeated cycles and patterns of God’s mandated seven Feasts and His Law of Firstfruits. He uses these annual Feasts’ cycles and patterns to prove they are shadows of the things to come, primarily the Pre-Tribulation Rapture. Perry also explains how the biblical literal firstfruits’ harvests are symbolic of the last days and end times’ Raptures (Gatherings) of Souls. That’s right . . . . Raptures, as in more than one!
Adonai said to Moshe, “Tell the people of Isra’el, ‘After you enter the land I am giving you and harvest its ripe crops, you are to bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest to the cohen. He is to wave the sheaf before Adonai, so that you will be accepted; the cohen is to wave it on the day after the Shabbat. ~ Leviticus 23:9-11, CJB (Barley, First of all the Firstfruits)
Observe the festival of Shavu‘ot with the first-gathered produce of the wheat harvest, and the festival of ingathering at the turn of the year. ~ Exodus 34:22, CJB (Wheat, Second of all Grain Firstfruits)
until the day after the seventh week; you are to count fifty days; and then you are to present a new grain offering to Adonai. You must bring bread from your homes for waving — two loaves made with one gallon of fine flour, baked with leaven — as firstfruits for Adonai. ~ Leviticus 23:16-17, CJB (Wheat, Second of all Grain Firstfruits)
You will also give him the firstfruits of your grain, new wine and olive oil, and the first of the fleece of your sheep. ~ Deuteronomy 18:4, CJB (Grapes “New Wine” First Firstfruits of all Fruits)
All the best of the olive oil, wine and grain, the first portion of what they give to Adonai, I have given to you. ~ Numbers 18:12, CJB (Majority of Barley, Wheat, and Grapes’ Harvested Crops Are for Farmers and Their Families’ Consumption)
Perry says there will be two Firstfruits Harvests, but I believe there are three Firstfruits Harvests, and my belief is based on the fact that the three major crops harvested in Israel are: Barley, Wheat, and Grapes. In the natural, all three of these crops have Firstfruits (the first to ripen grain or fruit, which is given to God).
So then the three Firstfruits Harvests of Souls that I believe happen are: 1. Firstfruits of Barley (initially, Christ and those who raised with Him after His bodily Resurrection AND secondly, the Bride of Christ—every Overcomer from Pentecost to the Rapture of the alive in Christ Overcomers; see Matthew 27:52-53, 1 Thessalonians 4:16-17); 2. Firstfruits of Wheat (Perry says they are the 144,000, but I believe these Firstfruits are the saved martyred left behind Tribulation Jewish elect AND the saved martyred left behind Gentile Believers who have been severely sifted via threshing—cutting the stalk first and then slicing the head; sounds like a beheading; see Revelation 6:9, Revelation 17:6; Revelation 20:4); and 3. Firstfruits of Grapes (the “new wine” who are the Jewish 144,000; see Isaiah 65:8, Acts 2:15-17, Matthew 9:17, John 15:1-5, Luke 5:33-39, Ephesians 5:18; Revelation 7:1-8, and Revelation 14:1-5).
NOTE: I am sorry that the above posted video cannot be viewed. Please accept my sincerest apology.
I have posted video after video after video from different people’s YOUTUBE channels, where these videos in which Perry Stone teaches about The Rapture Law of First Fruits had been published, only to have each one of these shared videos blocked on this blog. The only reason for blocking the viewing of these videos that I can see is that apparently some third party, possibly Voice of Evangelism (VOE) or Perry Stone/Manna-Fest, or both since Perry Stone/Manna-Fest is VOE, has done so because of copyright infringement!
While there are more videos with the same content in them on YouTube, this servant of the Lord who does not expect to be paid for spreading His Gospel Truths won’t be posting any of them here on this freely shared blog! It is a shame that the spreading of the Gospel has become nothing more than a business!
