"Pentecost, a time of destiny."

Dear doves:

It is looking more and more like Pentecost may be our day of deliverance.

The feast of Shavout this year is May 26/27.  It is called Pentecost which means “50”.  It is the fourth feast of seven instituted by YHWH for the Jewish nation to observe each and every year.  I received a posting from Janet Herscule just today giving the following information about Pentecost.  She says: 

In a sense, Pentecost may be considered a “gentile” feast.  Notice the events that are ascribed to Pentecost. 

1.  Enoch was both born and died on Pentecost.  He was a “gentile” as Abram had not yet been called and Eber, the son from whom the term Hebrew came was not yet born.

2.  Ruth, the wife-to-be of Boaz, the descendant of Rahab of Jericho was a gentile.  She followed her mother-in-law, Naomi, back to Bethlehem when Naomi returned.  She attached herself to Naomi in such a way as to be legendary.  The Book of Ruth is full of types and pictures of the rapture of the Church, and it is read in the synagogue on Shavout  (Pentecost).  The account of Boaz bloodline down to the birth of Jesus, the Messiah is detailed. 

3.  Pentecost is the birth day of Judiasm, i. e. the giving of the Law.

4.  Pentecost is the birth day of the Church, i. e. the Age of Grace.

5.  Pentecost is the end day of the Church, i. e. the rapture event?  On this day the Holy Spirit leaves and the true Church exits earth, and the Age of Grace ends.

6.  Shavout (Old Testament) and Pentecost (New Testament) comprise a beautiful picture of LAW and GRACE.  Under law, 3,000 people perished when YHWH was angry with the Hebrews for violating the law.  At Pentecost, 50 days after the resurrection of Jesus, 3,000 people were saved at the preaching of Peter, and added to the Church.

7.  Shavout (O. T.) and Pentecost (N. T.) both fall on the same day this year, 2012.  That is Sunday May 26/27.

8.  Pentecost is also called the Feast of First Fruits.

9.  Twenty one days before Pentecost this year is May 5/6.  It is super moon day and the day the Olympics kicked off.  

10.  It was at Pentecost  that Peter declared the fulfillment of Joel 2.  In his conclusion, he prophesied not only this event but looking over centuries of time said this about the very day in which we now live “And I will show wonders in heaven above, and signs in the earth beneath:  blood, and fire, and vapor of smoke.  The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before  that great and notable day of the Lord come; and it shall come to pass that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be saved”. (Acts 2:19-21 KJV).  Perhaps the so-called “wedding band” eclipse of May 20 is the event Peter spoke about.  It darkens the sun while at the same time it turns the moon black/red, the color of dead men’s blood.  Fitting for the age in which we live.  At the same time, blood, fire and vapor of smoke denotes destruction by war or other means such as massive earthquakes? 

Brothers and sisters in Christ.  Make your election sure.  Don’t miss this spectacular event called the rapture.  Repent and cleanse yourself of all known sin.  The Lord is at the door.  The Judge is coming.  The Bridegroom is coming for His bride.  May His arrival be soon, very soon. 

In the name of Yahushua (Jesus Christ) I pray,
