April 16, 2022 (15th day of 1st biblical month)
:10 "First fruits" in this verse is not used as a title of a holy day.
Never says "Holy summoned assembly" or "rest day" for the first Sunday during the week of unleavened bread.
The only thing we do for the first Sunday of UB, is just begin counting to 50.
Exo. 34:22 (This verse needs to be fixed in AOB.)
There's 3 annual pilgrimages.
1. The Beginning of Wheat Harvest = (During the week of Unleavened Bread in the month of new grain in the Spring.) It isn't called "The Feast of First Fruits". Some translations say "The first fruits of the Wheat Harvest". But that's not used as a title, but rather as a description of time during the UB week.
2. Feast of Weeks = Pentecost at middle of year.
3. Feast of Ingathering = Tabernacles.
:13 At first, this seems to strictly forbid the speaking of any demonic name. But the name "Zeus" appears 2-3 times in scripture. Plus, Apollo and Belial and others. Therefore, it can't really mean that literally.
Actually, it just means that we must not worship false gods, nor make vows to them, and, as little as possible, ever utter their names, and never with pleasure and delight, and never showing any honour or reverence of them, but rather only with the utmost detestation and abhorrence.
:14 Fiesta (pilgrimage) 3 times per year.
:16 Calls Pentecost "first fruits". This settles exactly when/what The Feast of First Fruits is. It's Pentecost.
:22 Earlier in the night of preparing this sermon, I said to one of our spiritual brothers in the ministry, that there's few people who serve Jesus, and that those that do, are a treasure to Jesus. So I thought it very interesting when this verse appeared later in the night, during my study about the Feast of First Fruits.
:22-26 Jesus promises healing and blessings if we destroy the enemies.
Conclusion: Pentecost is the Feast of First Fruits.
We don't need to do anything different from what we have been doing in this ministry, for these days.
Announcement: Worship services 11 a.m. Eastern Time on Friday April 22 for the last day of Unleavened Bread.
