" SHAVUOT " - PENTECOST
   - begins SUNDOWN, Sat May 23

  Did you know that Pentecost
was a Feast of the Lord nearly
1500 years before the events
of the 2nd Chapter of Acts?
Exodus 19 says it was in the
3rd month that the Israelites
arrived at Mount Sinai where
they received The Word of The
Lord as to how to live their
lives in The Way pleasing to
Him.
  God told The Jewish people
to count 50 days from Passover -
nearly two months.  Since Pass -
over was in the middle of the
1st month, nearly 2 months later
puts "Shavuot" - Pentecost - in the beginning of the 3rd month - the time when The Jewish people were at Mt. Sinai receiving The Law - God's Word to them how to live.
  The Word of the Lord was given with powerful signs - the top of the mountain was on fire, there were tremendous sounds of powerful wind - the roar sounding like the shofar (trumpet made from a ram's horn), and the whole area shook violently.
  In the 2nd Chapter of
Acts  we  see  that  the
first followers of Yeshua
experienced these same
signs as they received
The Holy Spirit - The
Very Breath of God that
spoke The Words of The
Law that Moses received
on The Mountain.
  Now, as promised in Jeremiah's prophecy of The New Covenant (Jeremiah 31:31-34) - God's Word was no longer external to them - written on two tablets of stone or on scrolls of sheep skin.  In Acts 2 God's Word, as Jeremiah prophesied, was put "in their hearts."
  TODAY - are we willing to let God shake the ground that we normally feel is secure?  Are we willing to admit we are so very weak and small compared to His Awesome Presence?  Are we willing to accept His Fire into our lives to burn away all that displeases Him?  Are we willing to let the Wind of His Spirit speak into our lives with power so we surrender and move in the direction He is calling us?
  YESHUA said that once He rose from the grave - showing He was able to conquer sin and death and hell - it was better that He return to The Father so He could send His Holy Spirit to live in us ... so we could have His very Life in us, not just His words in written form external to us.
  YESHUA's Life - lived in and through us - is powerful proof He is who He claimed to be - Son of God, Messiah of Israel - and Savior of The World !
