Today is the seventh Sabbath since the celebration of the resurrection of Jesus. Tomorrow is Pentecost Sunday, day fifty of counting the Omer, the day we celebrate receiving the Holy Spirit. Heavenly occurrences are happening. Look at Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn; last night, they began lining up, the beginning of the seventh Sabbath, and can be seen with the naked eye. Is that a coincidence? I highly doubt it. The alignment should last all month, so if you are rain and cloud-covered like we are, no worries, you will still get to see it. I’m disappointed that the modern church doesn’t teach us to observe the feast; it is something we must do on our own. If we followed them congregationally, we might see the pattern of heavenly occurrences and receive the blessings associated with them. God requires them for a reason. The modern church has been infiltrated by the enemy who confuses God’s Word and makes us feel that specific passages don’t pertain to us. However, according to Paul’s writings, we are adopted into the family by accepting Jesus as our Savior. Children who are adopted do as the family does and receive the same blessing as the other children in the family. One day very soon, God will make all of this clear, and we will be outraged because of all the favor we missed for not observing God’s mandates because the enemy weaved his way into the church.
What I have done to make sure I don’t miss any biblical feasts is I’ve downloaded the Jewish calendar. It might be a good idea for all of us to do the same.
“You shall count seven full weeks from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering. You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath. Then you shall present a grain offering of new grain to the LORD. Leviticus 23:15-16
