50 days, 7 weeks, Bride of Christ's Birthday, Feast of First Fruits, Feast of Harvest, Feast of Pentecost, Feast of Weeks, Feasts celebrated on Sundays, moveable Feasts, Pentecost Sunday, seventh Sabbath
In the Old Testament Scriptures, God does not assign any dates to His established Feast of First Fruits and Feast of Pentecost (a.k.a., Feast of Weeks and Feast of Harvest)—respectively, God never assigned any Nisan 16 date nor any Sivan 6 date. Like God did with First Fruits, He also does with Pentecost. He made both of these Feasts moveable! More important, God made it so that both Feasts always fall 50 days apart on the Sundays that follow regular weekly Saturday Sabbaths!
Happy Pentecost Sunday!
Let’s celebrate the Bride of Christ’s birthday! Happy Birthday to all of my brothers and sisters in Christ!
You shall count seven full weeks from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering. You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath. Then you shall present a grain offering of new grain to the Lord. ~ Leviticus 23:15-16, ESV (see also Exodus 23:16 and Exodus 34:22)
You shall count seven weeks. Begin to count the seven weeks from the time the sickle is first put to the standing grain. Then you shall keep the Feast of Weeks to the Lord your God with the tribute of a freewill offering from your hand, which you shall give as the Lord your God blesses you. And you shall rejoice before the Lord your God, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant, the Levite who is within your towns, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow who are among you, at the place that the Lord your God will choose, to make his name dwell there. ~ Deuteronomy 16:9-11, ESV
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. ~ Acts 1:8, ESV
When the day of Pentecost arrived, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a sound like a mighty rushing wind, and it filled the entire house where they were sitting. And divided tongues as of fire appeared to them and rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Spirit gave them utterance. ~ Acts 2:1-4, ESV
