As mentioned many times in previous blasts
, the pure knowledge of God is offered at His Feasts
to replace the world's knowledge chosen by Eve
. Fresh manna is served
that if ingested will guide God's people down the King's highway
to restoration and eternity
. Pure truth is served that many will have to develop a taste for
as they have been raised on junk food processed by man's intellect
from the world's knowledge. These have been conditioned to love the sugar coated version that has evolved over the years. A watered down gospel
is preferred that does not require much change
, little faith and not a lot of effort on their part. But, there are those that are not satisfied or content with the world's snacks
, but instead hunger for the Kingdom's gourmet menu
. It is very sad that the enemy has successfully replaced God's informative feasts with his holidays
. Religious celebrations mixed with pagan rituals
trample truth into false doctrines
, and mold humanity into creatures contented to live in sickness, pain, sorrow, ending in eventual death. But there is scripture stating there will be ones that will be changed in a twinkling of an eye
into incorruptible and immortal people, ones that will live to build a new earth and a Godly society
. These are ones who will have experienced all seven holy convocations or all ten of God's feasts
. They will have with relish eaten of the truth offered at each and have through God's knowledge grown or metamorphosed into a whole new species
! They have a number, 144,000, sealed by God
and trained to lead mankind as they themselves follow the Lamb
. They are likened to His barley crop
, firstborn of the new species
, overcomers created to strengthen and support God's people
through these end times. The barley is a grain that can survive in a drought
, or spiritually at a time when it doesn't feel in the natural like God is doing anything, those dry times that He is silent. Barley
is disease resistant as well, hardy, able to stand the attack of the enemy
physically, mentally, emotionally and materially, symbolic of God's end time government
. They experience everything the world does, but are equipped by God to stand
through it. So the barley must therefore be ripened, matured and harvested first
so they can help others before God will begin the final feasts and harvest the rest of His people
. Scripture says a homer of barley seed shall be valued at fifty shekels
of silver. This value of barley is very symbolic also. You see, fifty is the number of both Pentecost and Jubilee
. Pentecost, because the harvest of wheat was to be experienced 50 days after Passover
and the harvesting of the barley. Therefore when the wheat is chosen, matured and harvested
that will signal the year when Jubilee is to be experienced
. It will be the year of Pentecost or the year of fifty
. You see, the wheat must also have eaten and enjoyed the knowledge served at the seven holy convocations
to be made ready, ripened, perfected and chosen to help build the new earth
! The barley and the wheat together are likened to God's government and His people
, the oil and the wine, or the head and the body of Christ
. They are Sion and New Jerusalem, God's mountain and His city
. All together they are the seed of Abraham because they were born through Yeshua or Jesus
who was of the tribe of Judah, one of the twelve tribes of Israel and the Seed promised to Abraham
Galatians 3:16 speaks of this.
16 Now to Abraham and his Seed were the promises made. He does not say, “And to seeds,” as of many, but as of one, “And to your Seed,” who is Christ (the only way to be a recipient of the promises is through Him).
Galatians 3:27, 29 shows us how.
27 For as many of you as were baptized into Christ (died in His death and resurrected to a new creature) have put on Christ.
29 And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.
I Corinthians 2:14
14 But the natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him; nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.
26 ‘Also on the day of the firstfruits (this feast is for those born again), when you bring a new grain (new creatures) offering to the Lord at your Feast of Weeks (another name for Pentecost), you shall have a holy convocation (God will meet with them and there will be change and growth). You shall do no customary work (symbolic of entering God's rest and upon maturity eternally living within it in quiet peace and perfection).
The Feast of Weeks
15 ‘And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf (barley) of the wave offering: seven Sabbaths shall be completed. (Seven times the barley entered into God's rest as they experienced the seven holy convocations yearly until matured, perfected they remain forever in His rest.)
Hebrews 4:1 speaks of this rest.
1 Therefore, since a promise remains of entering His rest, let us fear lest any of you seem to have come short of it.
Side Note: With the final harvest, when the crops are all safely in God's barns the Seed of Abraham will live forever in God's rest along with the rest of creation restored to them at that time. Scripture tells us all creation waits eagerly for God's children, His First Fruits in other words, to manifest from within God's rest to set them free. The number of Rest is
3973 meaning, settle down
, give rest
, touch, covering
. These bring forth the Kingdom! They pray and cover the newborns, feed them truth and lead them to God's rest. These then help them become a solid, secure, useful and confident part of God's family. As they fulfill the restorative works of God that lie within His rest, all creation will be set free of pain, sorrow, sickness and death, they will be Jubilee'd!
Romans 8:19-21 explains,
19 For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God.
20 For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope;
21 because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption (or death) into the glorious liberty of the children of God . (The eternal ones!)
Revelation 21:4 speaks of this beautiful time also.
4 And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” (These promises lie within God's rest to be fulfilled and brought to light as God's children appear or become visible!)
If you will please look back at Romans 8:20 again we will see it says, “in hope”. In hope
For the answer let's look at John 15:5.
5 “I (Jesus) am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.
I Corinthians 12:27
27 Now you are the body of Christ, and members individually.
5 so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.
12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.
Philippians 4:13 tells us,
13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
5 “I am the vine, you are the branches (we feed on Him, are matured through Him). He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing. (We cannot do anything without Him!)
It is a fact, scripture is law
! Mankind and in fact all creation is in danger for their lives and future without His intervention
! This world has become one big curse mainly because of a truth found in Jeremiah 17:5.
5 Thus says the Lord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord.
Jeremiah 17:6 shows us the results of this curse.
6 For he (those that trust in man) shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see when good comes (the door of opportunity will close in their face unseen), but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land which is not inhabited (things will be hard, unfruitful, and aspirations dependent on the world will be shattered because the works are cursed).
Jeremiah 17:7 gives us the real answer though.
7 “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, and whose hope is the Lord.
8 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters (living waters of truth), which spreads out its roots by the river (wrapped around, stabilized by truth), and will not fear when heat comes; but its leaf will be green (never dried up), and will not be anxious in the year of drought, nor will cease from yielding fruit (happy, protected, about God's business).
Matthew 24:33-34 warned,
33 So you also, when you see all these things (look around the earth), know that it is near—at the doors!
34 Assuredly, I say to you, this generation (you and me) will by no means pass away (die) till all these things take place.
There has been wars, nations fight against nations
, there are famines, droughts, plagues
, locusts, earthquakes, fire, mudslides, hail and snow out of season, tornadoes and there are all kinds of atrocities planned by evil man
behind closed doors and all happening some place on the globe today. We surely cannot say God hasn't warned man
can we? There are so many signs and warnings! Mankind as a whole has tried everything except repenting
for living apart from their Creator. They see nothing wrong with doing things according to their intellect
, not being guided by scripture, the law of God's knowledge
nor have they taken direction from those He speaks through
Amos 3:7 tells us,
7 Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.
Matthew 24:36-39 shows us God has not and will not reveal the exact time of the end however. We must watch!
36 “But of that day and hour no one knows (God gives signs, warnings, but the exact time only He knows!), not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only (man's intellect fails here also).
37 But as the days of Noah were (who warned for years the end was coming), so also will the coming of the Son of Man be (warnings on deaf ears).
38 For as in the days before the flood, they were eating and drinking (paying little attention), marrying and giving in marriage (going on with life as usual), until the day that Noah entered the ark, (Too late to change, too late to listen and be obedient!)
39 and did not know until the flood came and took them all away, so also will the coming of the Son of Man be.
19 I will show wonders in heaven above (there have been many) and signs in the earth (trees bear flowers out of season now, weather produces snow, hail out of season) beneath: blood (mass murders etc. have increased) and fire (large tracts of land are burning) and vapor of smoke (so many signs).
20 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and awesome day of the Lord. (All signs the end is near!)
Matthew 13:49 shows us something else that is happening from the supernatural realm.
49 So it will be at the end of the age. The angels will come forth, separate the wicked from among the just, (It will be too late to change.)
11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”
Colossians 2:16-17 tells us to stand our ground when men mock us for studying the feasts and ridicule us for the changes they make in our lives.
16 So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, (don't let anyone make fun or criticize you for experiencing God's feasts, particularly Pentecost!)
17 which are a shadow of things to come (to be experienced in our life so we can mature and grow to a new species), but the substance is of Christ. (Again, without Him we cannot do anything, He is our success!)
Closing comments. In God's feasts are invaluable nuggets of truth
concerning the end times. They contain knowledge concerning His end time people
and how the life of Jesus correlates with them. For the sake of yourself, your loved ones, all creation, study the feasts
, there is so much information in them that you can read them over and over, getting something new each time. Dive into our archives
, eat all of the Lamb
, He is the Word of God, the Wisdom and knowledge Eve turned her back on
. A portion of knowledge from the Tree of Life
, light, illumination from the Bright Morning Star
is there in each of God's feasts waiting for mankind to come in and dine
The Lamb of God says at John 6:53,
53 Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you.
There is truly nothing we can do without Him! Have a wonderful feast of Pentecost.
