"When is Pentecost (Shavuot) Fully Come in 2017? Day or Season?"


 
   In the Book of Acts, chapter 2, there are wonderful stories about signs and wonders in Jerusalem ten days after the Ascension of the Messiah. When was Pentecost "fully come" for Israel that year? It was at the completion of Omer Count Day 50, that morning at 9 AM.
 
   In 2017, all 3 calendar reckonings for Pentecost (Shavuot) will be "fully come" (complete) as of 6-5 at sunsets everywhere as Israel goes to her midnight hour. The 3 reckonings are as follows: Hillel Calendar, Torah Calendar, and Christian Calendar dates. The Christian Calendar Pentecost will be 6-3 to 4, yet also another day for 6-4 to 5 for those countries in time zones far back on the 24 hour grid (like China and Russia). Pentecost (Shavuot) will be absolutely "fully come" as Israel goes to her midnight hour on 6-5 to 6. Curiously, these are Anniversary Dates linked to the Six Day War in Israel in 1967, 50 years ago! We see a double 50 motif:  50 Day Omer Count and  50 Year Jubilee! Jubilee themes: emancipation and restoration!
 
   Next issue. The extended Season of Pentecost. Jump forward from "Summer is near, even at the gates" as it begins to when it ends in 2017. As we go forward 4 months, the Pentecost Season annually extends on either the Hillel or Torah Calendar from the Feast of the Lord number 4 Pentecost (Shavuot) until Elul 29. This is the Last Day on Month 6 on the Spiritual Year Calendar for Israel, begun in Spring (for the counting of months). The Civil (King's) Calendar ENDS on Elul 29 (for the counting of years, not months). The Elul 29 Last Day will be 9-20 to 21, 2017 according to the Torah Calendar. The shofars are expected to be silent this day. Then is the BEGINNING ANEW of the Civil (King's) Calendar on Month 7, Day 1, at the Rosh Chodesh (New Moon) on The Feast of Trumpets. PASSOVER SEASON OVER. Symbolically, the position on the 7 pronged Menorah goes from Feast 4 Pentecost (Shavuot) to 5. Some themes? Royal Wedding. The Arrival of a Great King. Todd D. Bennett makes a convincing case for the Messiah's birth on Wednesday 9-11-3 BCE. See his chart at www.torahcalendar.com for "The Birth of Yahushua the Messiah" for an absorbing article.
 
   If not earlier, will the bride / body / family of the Messiah be born into resurrection bodies on 9-20 to 21? THE END OF THE SEASON AND OF THE AGE OF PENTECOST? The Great King arrives linked to the King's Calendar for Israel? Jubilee conclusion with emancipation and restoration begun? The Third Day will be 9-20 to 21 which is backwards Three Days from 9-23-2017 (with the Sign of the Son of Man in the heavens above Jerusalem). Will The Blessed Hope be between 6-4 to 6 when the days of Pentecost are "fully come" or perhaps when the Pentecost Season and Age are "fully come" by 9-20 to 21? We shall see.
 
With Love and Shalom,
