Pentecost (Shavuot) begins tonight at sundown and ends Saturday evening. This is a harvest feast where we celebrate the amazing provision of the Lord, including multiplication, revelation and Holy Spirit empowerment! 🕊🔥🙌🏻
The festival also celebrates the giving of the Torah on Mount Sinai, as well as the grain harvest for the summer. In biblical times, Shavuot was one of three pilgrimage festivals in which all the Jewish men would go to Jerusalem and bring their first fruits as offerings to God. This was the celebration of the first fruits of harvest season.
And then...there came a new harvest. A harvest of souls, when the Ekklesia of God was birthed, and began to multiply daily!
"When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance."
Thank you, Lord...for all of Your provision, but most importantly, for the provision of Your Spirit in us and on us!
Pray with me... 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻
Holy Spirit, come and fill us afresh once again! Help us to seek You as never before, for we need a fresh touch from You! Thank You for how You have already been moving in our nation, and in the nations of the world. We are ready for the next level of Your move!
Forgive us, Holy Spirit, where we have grieved You, quenched You, and not allowed You to move as You wanted. Forgive us for not giving You the time You deserved.
Come again in power and great Glory to Your church...release Your great spirit of repentance and the fear of the Lord, along with the overwhelming knowledge of the love of the Father and the Son! Help us to KNOW His love, and love Him fully in return! Holy Spirit, as on the day of #Pentecost so many years ago, we need You now more than ever! We receive You now! 🕊🔥 #Shavuot #HolySpiritCome
