This rather lengthy Read, but must know and Understand:
Passover to Pentecost, A Fifty Day journey of growth and maturity. This week I have been seeing several FB post from evangelical pastors and ministers announcing that this Sunday, May 15th is the Day of Pentecost where in Acts 2 God fulfilled his promise to pour out Holy Spirit on all flesh. They have wonderful things to say but are so miss guided because their view all of scripture is from a Greek Gregorian understanding. Which is perpetuated through by Bible Colleges and Seminaries. This Greek way of thinking is rooted in Anti-semitism. The Roman emperor Constantine and the council of Nicea was so anti-Semitic, while hating the Jewish people for they believed they were the ones who crucified Jesus did away with all the appointed Feasts of the Lord and Shabbat, outlawing it from practice. In fact a part of this church history is so horrible and hateful. It outlawed Jewish people from owning property, having children, and they must participate only in the Cathedral worship and activities. Not allowed to the breaking bread and speaking of Jesus and sharing in common with each other from house to house, which was practiced in Acts 3 and 4 of early believers.
Not celebrating the Feasts of the Lord is really Anti-Semitic. Most of the church has bought the lie of replacement Theology that since the Jewish people have not recognized Yeshua as Messiah, God has overlooked and judges them and replaced them with the Gentiles and the New Testament.
The Apostle Paul who by his own admission was the select of the elect of Jews never taught this. In Romans he talked about the Gentiles a wild branch being grafted into the Olive Branch. In Ephesians he spoke of the “one new man” Jew and gentile ushering the last days and return of Yeshua. Yeshua himself in the parable of John 15 speaks of God as the vine dresser, Yeshua the Jewish Jesus is the vine and the branches is both Jew and Gentile.
When the Gentiles begin to celebrate and participate in the Jewish roots of the Lord understanding the Hebrew understanding of scripture and practicing the Feasts of the Lord, it will usher in an end time harvest for the second coming of Messiah. As Gentiles do, they Blessings of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will be manifested to provoke the Jewish people to Jealousy. More on this on tomorrow’s blog.
Back to the Acts 2 and the Feast of Pentecost. It is called by Evangelicals the Day of Pentecost. They were in Jerusalem everyone from through out Judea, Samaria, and everywhere else to celebrate the Feasts of Pentecost. Every male to come to Jerusalem and bring a Feast Offering which is commanded by God. And they heard in their own dialect the glorious truth by Holy Spirit that Yeshua was Messiah. This is not this Sunday, May 15th on the Gregorian calendar, but June 10-12 on the Biblical Calendar. Which is exactly 50 days after First Fruits which is the day Yeshua was Resurrected from the grave.
My prayer for you today is Ephesians 1: 17-19, “That the God of our Lord (Jewish) Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelations in the knowledge of Yeshua HaMashiac the eyes of your understanding being enlightened…”
