Inforation & Up todate Days and DATES of the FEAST of YHWH
Latest Activity: Dec 14, 2012
As most of you know, YHWH has spaced out His feasts/Shabbats throughout the year, in part, so that His people will constantly have their minds on Him. Not only do we meet with him every Seventh Day, but also via the Seven Feasts: http://therefinersfire.org/feasts2.htm
At this point in time, YHWH's people are now supposed to be "counting the Omer": http://therefinersfire.org/counting_the_omer.htm
The last day of Omer kicks off the Feast of Shavuot - which starts this year at sunset June 6th. Shavuot celebrates the giving of Torah at Mt. Sinair, and the giving of the Ruach haKodesh (Holy Spirit).
The Israelites were freed from their lives of slavery in Egypt on Passover; and 50 days later on Shavuot they accepted YHWH's Torah which made them a nation committed to serving YHWH. This Feast was fulfilled by the coming of the promised Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) on the disciples of Yeshua in the Temple. It represents the beginning of the body of Messiah on Earth, in which ALL believers, redeemed through the blood of Messiah, are lifted up before ADONAI and set apart as holy (Acts 2, John 14:15-18, Ephesians 2:11-22).
The theme of accepting Torah is mirrored by the Book of Ruth, which is to be read on Shavuot. Ruth is born a Moabite, and becomes the first known convert to Judaism. When her husband dies, she tells her Mother-in-Law Naomi that she will go with her, and accept her people. Ruth says the words, “Your people are my people, and your God is my God.” During Shavuot we read Exodus 19:1 thru 20:23; Numbers 28:26-31; Ezekiel 1:1-28, 3:12.
