Spring Feasts and Holy Days of the Lord this year 2007

We are counting the omer. This is the 6th week of counting the omer. One week left.

Lev.23 [ 15 ] And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath , from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete:[ 16 ] Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD [17 ] Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baken with leaven; they are the firstfruits unto the LORD.

This year, 2007, our dates are as follows:

The 3rd month, Sivan 9th is on the 27th of May and is a Sabbath ( Sunday ) Feast of Weeks - Pentecost.

Two sabbaths in a row.

The giving of the Torah ( commandments ) and giving of the Holy Spirit ( Acts 2 and Joel 2:28 ).


" the feast of weeks , of the firstfruits of wheat harvest "

Exod.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, 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.
[17] Three times in the year all thy males shall appear before the Lord GOD.

Exod.34 [21 ] Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest. [22 ] And thou shalt observe the feast of weeks, of the firstfruits of wheat harvest , and the feast of ingathering at the year's end.

Deut.16 [16 ] Three times in a year shall all thy males appear before the LORD thy God in the place which he shall choose; in the feast of unleavened bread, and in the feast of weeks, and in the feast of tabernacles : and they shall not appear before the LORD empty:

Num.28 [26 ] Also in the day of the firstfruits, when ye bring a new meat offering unto the LORD, after your weeks be out, ye shall have an holy convocation; ye shall do no servile work:

Lev.23 [21 ] And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be an holy convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein: it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations.

Acts.2 [1 ] And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place.

Acts.20 [16 ] For Paul had determined to sail by Ephesus, because he would not spend the time in Asia: for he hasted, if it were possible for him, to be at Jerusalem the day of Pentecost.

1Cor.16 [8 ] But I will tarry at Ephesus until Pentecost.


This week:

Jerusalem Day - commemorating the reunification of Jerusalem in 1967 and the re-establishment of Jewish control of the Old City.

" Declaring the end from the beginning "

Isa.46 [8 ] Remember this, and sew yourselves men: bring it again to mind, O ye transgressors.
9] Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
10] Declaring the end from the beginning , and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:


You are in a "War" if you know it or not!

Gen.3 [14] And the LORD God said unto the serpent , Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

[15] And I will put enmity between thee ( the serpent ) and the woman, and between thy seed ( the serpent ) and her seed ; it ( the enmity ) shall bruise thy head ( the serpent ), and thou shalt bruise his heel. ( The Messiah )

Rev.12 [7 ] And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels,[8 ] And prevailed not; neither was their place found any more in heaven.
9] And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

[17] And the dragon was wroth with the woman , and went to make war with the remnant of her seed , which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ. ( Yeshua the Messiah )

the enmity, your adversary, the dragon, old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan

Rev.12 [9 ] And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

[12] Therefore rejoice, ye heavens, and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.

Eph.6 [10] Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11] Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
[12] For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
[13] Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day , and having done all, to stand.
14] Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15] And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16] Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17] And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18] Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

2Cor.10 [3 ] For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh : [4 ] (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) [ 5] Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
6] And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

1Tim.1 [18 ] This charge I commit unto thee, son Timothy, according to the prophecies which went before on thee, that thou by them mightest war a good warfare; [19] Holding faith, and a good conscience; which some having put away concerning faith have made shipwreck:
20] Of whom is Hymenaeus and Alexander; whom I have delivered unto Satan, that they may learn not to blaspheme.

1Pet.2 [11 ] Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

[12] Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation.
13] Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme;
14] Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well.
15] For so is the will of God, that with well doing ye may put to silence the ignorance of foolish men:
16] As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.
17] Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the king.
18] Servants, be subject to your masters with all fear; not only to the good and gentle, but also to the froward.
19] For this is thankworthy, if a man for conscience toward God endure grief, suffering wrongfully.
20] For what glory is it, if, when ye be buffeted for your faults, ye shall take it patiently? but if, when ye do well, and suffer for it, ye take it patiently, this is acceptable with God.
21] For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps:
22] Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth:
23] Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
24] Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.
25] For ye were as sheep going astray; but are now returned unto the Shepherd and Bishop of your souls.

1Pet.5 [8 ] Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion , walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:

1Tim.6 [12 ] Fight the good fight of faith , lay hold on eternal life, whereunto thou art also called, and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses.

2Tim.4[ 7] I have fought a good fight , I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: [ 8] Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.


Gen.1 [14] And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:

Pss.104 [19 ] He appointed the moon for seasons : the sun knoweth his going down.

Pss.136 [7 ] To him that made great lights: for his mercy endureth for ever: [8] The sun to rule by day: for his mercy endureth for ever: [ 9] The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever.

Pss.148 [3] Praise ye him, sun and moon: praise him, all ye stars of light.

Pss.74 [17 ] Thou hast set all the borders of the earth: thou hast made summer and winter.

Gen.8 [22 ] "While" the earth remaineth ,

עֹד, כָּל־יְמֵי הָאָרֶץ


seedtime and harvest, זֶרַע וְקָצִיר

cold and heat, קֹר וָחֹם

summer and winter קַיִץ וָחֹרֶף

day and night יוֹם וָלַיְלָה

shall not cease.


Prov.23 [18 ] For surely there is an end ; and thine expectation shall not be cut off.

Rev.10 [6 ] And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:


A recap of the end - the last harvest


[36] Then Jesus sent the multitude away, and went into the house: and his disciples came unto him, saying, Declare unto us the parable of the tares of the field.
37] He answered and said unto them,

He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man;[38 ]

The field is the world ;

the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but

the tares are the children of the wicked one ;[39 ]

The enemy that sowed them is the devil;

the harvest is the end of the world ; and

the reapers are the angels .

[40] As therefore the tares are gathered and burned in the fire; so shall it be in the end of this world.

[41] The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity;
[42] And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
[43] Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

[44] Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.

[45] Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
46] Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

[47] Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a net, that was cast into the sea, and gathered of every kind:
48] Which, when it was full, they drew to shore, and sat down, and gathered the good into vessels, but cast the bad away.

[49] So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth, and sever the wicked from among the just,
50] And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

[51] Jesus saith unto them, Have ye understood all these things? They say unto him, Yea, Lord.
52] Then said he unto them, Therefore every scribe which is instructed unto the kingdom of heaven is like unto a man that is an householder, which bringeth forth out of his treasure things new and old.


Matt.9 [37 ] Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; [38 ] Pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest , that he will send forth labourers into his harvest.

Rev.14 [15 ] And another angel came out of the temple, crying with a loud voice to him that sat on the cloud, Thrust in thy sickle, and reap: for the time is come for thee to reap ; for the harvest of the earth is ripe.


Ecc. 12 [ 1] Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them;
2] While the sun, or the light, or the moon, or the stars, be not darkened, nor the clouds return after the rain:
3] In the day when the keepers of the house shall tremble, and the strong men shall bow themselves, and the grinders cease because they are few, and those that look out of the windows be darkened,
4] And the doors shall be shut in the streets, when the sound of the grinding is low, and he shall rise up at the voice of the bird, and all the daughters of musick shall be brought low;
5] Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:
6] Or ever the silver cord be loosed, or the golden bowl be broken, or the pitcher be broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern.
[7] Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it.
[8] Vanity of vanities, saith the preacher; all is vanity.
9] And moreover, because the preacher was wise, he still taught the people knowledge; yea, he gave good heed, and sought out, and set in order many proverbs.
10] The preacher sought to find out acceptable words: and that which was written was upright, even words of truth.
11] The words of the wise are as goads, and as nails fastened by the masters of assemblies, which are given from one shepherd.
[12] And further, by these, my son, be admonished: of making many books there is no end ; and much study is a weariness of the flesh.
[13] Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter :

Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

[14] For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.
