WHAT IS PENTECOST (SHAVUOT)?



Good question. The following is a general overlay, followed by various links that you can peruse at your pleasure.

 

Pentecost is one of the three pilgrimage feasts where people were required to go to Jerusalem. The Biblical Feast of Pentecost, also known as the Feast of Weeks or "Shavuot" in Hebrew, is mentioned in Leviticus 23:15-21.

 

The first fulfillment of Pentecost was God giving of the Torah – the Word of God – to Moses. Exodus 19:1 says that the Jewish nation arrived at Mount Sinai on the 3rd day of the 3rd month – Sivan. They were ready to meet God three days later. On the 6th of Sivan, God appeared on the stone mountain with thunder, lightning, a thick cloud, and fire (Exo. 19:16). As smoke ascended, there was the sound of a “blast furnace” (Exodus 19:18). Meanwhile the sound of a shofar grew louder and louder, which caused Pentecost/Shavuot to also be called “The First Trump.” Moses spoke and God answered (Exo. 19:19).

 

On this day, Moses acted as the “friend of the bride” who carried the Jewish nation to their Betrothed (God Himself). Therefore, this day is also known as “The Betrothal” (Jer. 2:2) when God chose Israel (Is-real) as His Bride. The Ten Commandments was God’s side of the Marriage Contract – Ketubah – our side is to respond accordingly.

 

The second fulfillment of Pentecost was the Holy Spirit descending as tongues of fire in the Upper Room (Acts 2). All the pictures of the first fulfillment of Shavuot were repeated. We are living stones (little mountains). The tongues of fire and the sound of the mighty rushing wind was just like the “blast furnace” on Mount Sinai. This time God wrote His Torah – His Word – on our hearts, not on stone.
