Pentecost

Join us in a deeper understanding of the Feast of Pentecost as we explore this forth of the seven feast of the LORD. Why did the 120 believers have to wait until this feast to be immersed in the Holy Spirit? Why were we ask to count 50 days beginning on the Feast of First Fruits? What does the feast of Pentecost mean to us in the 21st century?

Pentecost (Ancient Greek: Πεντηκοστή [ἡμέρα], Pentēkostē [hēmera], “the fiftieth [day]”) is the Greek name for the Feast of Weeks, a prominent feast in the calendar of ancient Israel celebrating the giving of the Law on Sinai. This feast is still celebrated in Judaism asShavuot. Later, in the Christian liturgical year, it became a feast commemorating the descent of the Holy Spirit upon the Apostles and other followers of Jesus Christ, (120 in all) as described in the Acts of the Apostles 2:1–31.  For this reason, Pentecost is sometimes described by some Christians today as the “Birthday of the Church.”

Firstfruits

First fruits is the third of the seven Feasts of the Lord. It was on this feast that Jesus was resurrected.

Counting The Omer: Lesson One

Leviticus 23:15-16
And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete: Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD.

The counting of the Omer is a term very few Christians are familiar with. This counting of 50 days is according to GOD’S instruction to his children. This 50 day period ties Passover and the feast of Pentecost together. You will find many faith building concepts as well as scriptural clarifications in this 40 minute teaching

Passover: Lesson Five

We conclude our final of five Passover lessons with instruction and explanation of the actual prescribed Passover meal. Here you will learn what Jesus did as he ate his last supper with the disciples. You also will hear what portions of the Passover meal Jesus did not complete, and why on his final meal. For all that have ever taken what we Christians call Communion this is a must hear and understand.

The term Pesach (Hebrew: פֶּסַח‎) may also refer to the lamb or goat which was designated as the Passover sacrifice (called theKorban Pesach in Hebrew). Four days before the Exodus, the Hebrews were commanded to set aside a lamb.(Exodus 12:3) and inspect it daily for blemishes. During the day on the 14th of Nisan, they were to slaughter the animal and use its blood to mark theirlintels and door posts. Up until midnight on the 15th of Nisan, they were to consume the lamb. On the night of the first Passover at the start of the original Exodus, each family (or group of families) gathered together to eat a meal that included the meat of the Korban Pesach while the Tenth Plague ravaged Egypt.

Passover: Lesson Four

This lesson takes an in depth look at the time line of the crucifixion of Christ as occurring on a Thursday. It then walks thru the scripture which deal with the three days of Jesus being in the tomb, and concludes with his resurrection on the third day being early Sunday morning. It is a must understand teaching for those who have questioned the tradition of Good Friday being the day Christ died. Many have quietly understood you cannot have a Friday crucifixion and a Sunday resurrection and make three days and nights in the tomb work. Here you will be given a scripturally correct answer for this incorrect tradition of Good Friday.

Passover: Lesson Three

Passover: Lesson Three

Continued teaching from lesson one and two on the Feast of the Lord named Passover.

The Israelites were instructed to mark the doorposts of their homes with the blood of a slaughtered spring lamb and, upon seeing this, the spirit of the Lord knew to pass over the first-born in these homes, hence the name of the holiday. There is some debate over where the term is actually derived from. When the Pharaoh freed the Israelites, it is said that they left in such a hurry that they could not wait for bread dough to rise (leaven). In commemoration, for the duration of Passover no leavened bread is eaten, for which reason it is called “The Festival of the Unleavened Bread”. Thus Matzo (flat unleavened bread) is eaten during Passover and it is a symbol of the holiday.
