Shavuot the 26th of May

Shavuot, also known as the Feast of Weeks or Pentecost, is coming up soon. 50 days after Passover, as recorded in the Bible in Leviticus 23:15-22.

Where Passover is the celebration of our deliverance from Egypt (the world) and freedom from slavery (sin), Pentecost is a celebration of the giving of the Torah, or the Pentateuch (the 1st 5 books of the Bible, the books of Moses).

In the Old Testament, it was when the law was given to Moses. The law condemned us by sin to death (Rom.3:20). In the New Testament, it was when the Holy Spirit was first poured out on believers (Acts 2:1-4). The Holy Spirit sealed us in a new covenant of the forgiveness of sin, restoring real life!

As it rolls around this year, I’d like you to meditate on a passage of scripture and think about how good your Heavenly Father really is…

Luke 11:9-13, And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth; and he that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?  If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

What does God have for you…just around the corner?
