"Pentecost/Harvest and Pentecost/Firstfruits"

Greeting Doves,

I see scripture matching up, i hope you see it as well.

Colossians 2:16-17
16 So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a 
festival or a new moon or sabbaths, 17 which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is of Christ.

The 7 Feasts of the Lord are like a 7 candlestick Menorah and in the midst of it is Pentecost !! where Jesus was.

1 Passover
2 Feast of Unleavened Bread
3 First Fruits

4 Pentecost Rev1:13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a                                                   garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

5 Rosh Hashanah
6 Yom Kippur
7 Feast of Tabernacles.

Pentecost is a Wheat Feast, some wheat clues in the bible perhaps? Notice that Simon was not wanted to be sifted as barley, but wheat. 

Luke 22:31 And the Lord said,“Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may 

sift you AS WHEAT.

Matt 3: 12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and 
gather his WHEAT into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

Below Jesus refers to the believers as WHEAT, in the parable.
Matthew 13
25 But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the WHEAT, and went his way.
30 Let both grow together until the harvest: 
and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn

What Harvest? The Wheat Harvest this Pentecost perhaps? Pentecost is known also as the feast of harvest.

Ex 23:14 Three times thou shalt keep a feast unto me in the year.
15 Thou shalt keep 
the feast of unleavened bread: 
(thou shalt eat unleavened bread seven days, as I commanded thee, in the time appointed of the month Abib; for in it thou camest out from Egypt: and none shall appear before me empty:)
16 And the feast of harvest ( Pentecost ), the firstfruits of thy labours, 
which thou hast sown in the field: 
and the feast of ingathering, 
which is in the end of the year, when thou hast gathered in thy labours out of the field.

Pentecost is also known as the day of firstfruits and the Church has the firstfruits of the spirit, looks the same to me. Perfect match to me.

Romans 8:23
 Not only that, but we also who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, 
even we ourselves groan within ourselves, eagerly waiting for the adoption, the redemption of our body.

Numbers 28:26
Also on the day of the firstfruits, when you bring a new grain offering to the Lord at your Feast of Weeks, 
you shall have a holy convocation. You shall do no customary work.

The Hebrew word convocation is pronounced mik-raw which means a called assembly. Another literal meaning of the original Hebrew word is a rehearsal. 
So Holy Covocation = Holy Rehearsal
God Bless
