The Hebrew Pentecost (Shavuot) is celebrated seven weeks after Passover. Scripture tells us that Shavuot is a divinely appointed feast designated as a feast forever (Exo. 34:22; Lev. 23:15-21; Deut. 16:9-12). It signifies Moses and the Israelites taking seven weeks to reach Mount Sinai. Shavuot literally translates to “weeks” in Hebrew, emphasizes the conclusion of this seven-week journey – the Word of God being given to God’s people on Mount Sinai, as a ketubah (marriage contract). Remember that Yeshua (Jesus) is called The Word of God: “And I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse, and He who sat on it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and wages war. His eyes are a flame of fire, and on His head are many diadems; and He has a name written on Him which no one knows except Himself. He is clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called the Word of God” (Revelation 19: 11-13 NASB).
Pentecost honors Messiah Yeshua (Jesus Christ) and His Bride Wedding Day while Passover is a prophetic picture of their betrothal (i.e., engagement). Please refer to https://sapphirethroneministries.wordpress.com/2017/06/03/shavuot-marriage-contract/. Before the actual Marriage Feast of the Lamb, Pentecost is like a wedding rehearsal. After the actual Marriage Feast of the Messiah and His Bride, Pentecost will be like a wedding anniversary where one remembers and celebrates such a glorious union.
Shavuot literally took place exactly 50 days after the first Passover Seder in Egypt. That is where the term “Pentecost” comes from. Pentecost is the Greek word for “fifty.”
From a kingdom-dominion point-of-view, Pentecost (Shavuot) is a prophetic picture of the progressive union of God and His people (Is-real). Your personal and divine oneness with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit is the ultimate point and goal for all of His Kingdom Feasts, i.e., Biblical Feasts. When anyone unites in holy matrimony, they are legally put together to form a single unit.
After the Word of God picture was given on Mount Sinai during Shavuot, we have the picture of the Pillar of Fire separating into the tongues of fire coming upon those who were obedient to tarry in the Upper Room. “To these He also presented Himself alive after His suffering, by many convincing proofs, appearing to them over a period of forty days and speaking of the things concerning the Kingdom of God. Gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, ‘Which,’ He said, ‘you heard of from Me; for John baptized with water, but you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.’” (Acts 1:3-5 NASB).
Shavuot is when these faithful ones received the power of the Holy Spirit promised in Joel 2: “When the day of Pentecost had come, they were all together in one place. And suddenly there came from heaven a noise like a violent rushing wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. And there appeared to them tongues as of fire distributing themselves, and they rested on each one of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance” (Acts 2:1-4 NASB).
A new dimension of Shavuot (Hebrew Pentecost) is now being manifest in our day, which was foreshadowed in Acts 2:1 when everyone was all in one place – united in oneness. This divine oneness is a four-fold oneness between the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and the Bride of the Messiah. Please refer to the TAKING ON COMMON UNION video => https://youtu.be/hEj1VX-yqVM.
One of the reasons that we know that the Bride of Christ is part of this four-fold oneness of God in Creation is that there are four feminine living creatures in human form – a man (Ezekiel 1:5). The righteous spirit of the living creatures in the wheels forms a single, unified, feminine Living Creature in Ezekiel 1:20, which is her integrated essence. Upon the heads (plural) of the Living Creature (feminine singular), there is the likeness of terrible crystal – the firmament (Ezek. 1:22). Above that is a throne with a human form of a man – a fiery One New Man in Christ – sitting upon a sapphire throne with the likeness of the glorious rainbow of the Seven Spirits of God round about it (Ezek. 1:26-28).
The Cherubim on the Ark of His Presence is said to be a mysterious representation of sacred union, or holy matrimony. The grammatical relationship in Hebrew for “Holy of Holies” – Kodesh haKodashim – and “betrothal” – kiddushin – suggests an ancient common ground of heavenly and earthly union. It is part of the mystery of mankind being made in God’s own image. Yeshua was connecting “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness” (Gen. 1:26) when He prayed “that they may all be one; even as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me. The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me” (John 17:21-23 NASB).
May this divine oneness be yours!
