Acts 2:1 has puzzled billions of people, who claim to believe in God’s Son, for about 1900+ years now.
There is this little mention of Pentecost FULLY come which no one ever seems able to explain…
There are various sects which attempt to determine the true date of Shavuot in order to comply with God’s Commandments.
The first group, 2.5 billion people in the false religion of theological Christianity (not 1st century Christianity) really do not care at all about the timing of Pentecost. They just want to spend a couple of hours at their churches and get out to go enjoy a meal at home or out in the town somewhere then go about their worldly business and BBQ pigs and be unclean in most everything they do while waiting on Messiah Jesus/Yeshua to come for them and “rapture” them to safety. They are FRAUDS.
The second group are like Pharisee’s and Sadducee’s who begin the count of the Omer weeks either the day after the Day of Unleavened Bread or after the weekly Sabbath following the Day of Unleavened Bread. Both groups are also FRAUDS but there are many sincere people in both groups trying to figure these things out and MANY insincere people leading and following in these groups who also do not care one bit that they are leading people astray into the breaking of YHVH’s Commandments.
Here are examples of people who do not care:
They are out to make a buck and have no issue at all with breaking The Sabbath of YHVH in order to achieve their ministry goals.
Last, are the sincere people who are genuinely seeking YHVH and His Son with all their heart, soul, mind, and strength.
They watch/observe the short comings of fake but real appearing “torah teachers” and everything those frauds do in an effort to find the Truth no matter what the Truth leads them to DO.
The go about their lives just like the man in Psalms 1:1-3 and they study The Word of YHVH day and night and meditate on it constantly, never ceasing in order to determine The Will of Father YHVH and perform it to His Pleasure.
They are The RIGHTEOUS and BLAMELESS in ALL The Commandments of YHVH’s Torah and they will no ever be denied the forward steps on The Way that YHVH has laid out for them to find Him.
They have either figured out or are on THE WAY to figuring out that it is a COMMANDMENT to eat NOTHING but unleavened bread for the 7 Days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread thereby arriving at the 8th Day of FirstFruits and being FULLY COME there they can easily count the Omer to Shavuot and never miss it. It is also EXACTLY 70 DAYS after Nissan 1 (10 sevens) if you carefully examine the math…
If you are reading this and do not yet understand what I say about eating NOTHING but unleavened bread for the 7 days of The Feast of Unleavened Bread then read all the short posts here:
Starting with this one:
All the rest of the people who claim to believe (OBEY), for various reasons and levels of disobedience, turn right or left or go backwards and they will have a VERY RUDE AWAKENING either when The Taken happens (the rapture) or when they appear at the Second Resurrection and realize they missed out on the First Resurrection!
Those who INTENTIONALLY break the Sabbath of YHVH like Michael Rood, Arthur Bailey, Rico Cortes and so many others can never in a million years have any place in The Kingdom of Elohim except they REPENT of their evil doings and throw themselves of the Mercy of Yeshua’s Court and judgments just like King David repented successfully of his INTENTIONAL sins.
The Righteous are those who perfectly keep ALL of YHVH’s Commandments.
The Righteous and Blameless (like those in Luke 1:5-6) are those who did sin unintentionally/accidentally and they were eligible to apply Yeshua’s sacrifice (or the written Torah sacrifice which is identical). They understood how Yeshua’s sacrifice was written into Torah (what YHVH speaks) and given to us as example in the story of Abraham and Isaac. Isaac was not worthy to be sacrificed because he was not perfect.
Yeshua was PERFECT from the time he was conceived. He was PERFECT in all his life. And he is now King of Kings and Master of Masters in all Torah and has been granted all power in heaven and earth to DO his Father’s Will as defined in the Torah and The Prophets and to be fulfilled in the future.
Yeshua was created as a man by the standard we read about in Jeremiah 31:31-34
Yeshua was created PERFECT by the New Covenant standard we read about in Jeremiah 31:31-34
The New Covenant standard is the standard that everyone who passes The Judgment will be converted to in order to live in the New Jerusalem.
There is no other way to live in the presence of YHVH unless one has been converted to that PERFECT RIGHTEOUS standard.
Everyone else lives on this earth in The Covenant in order to perform The Covenant in their own lives just like Yeshua fulfilled The Covenant in his own life here on the earth.
Living here and performing the Covenant LAW is what Paul described as The Race he runs and Paul acknowledged that if he stumbled he could disqualified and that means intentionally breaking Torah or accidentally breaking Torah. The accidental Torah breakers have Yeshua’s sacrifice to apply within the construct of The Covenant Torah. The intentional Torah breakers do not have Yeshua’s sacrifice and are in danger of permanent death in the Lake of Fire after The Judgment. Those intentional Torah breakers either REPENT by fasting, praying, and mourning their sin state now or they face certain everlasting death after The Judgment.
How much BETTER to OBEY than to sacrifice!
Shavuot Shabbat Shalom!
