Pentecost & Our Covenants with Yahweh

Overview

Pentecost is the date that covenants Yahweh made covenants with his chosen people in the past.  The book of Jubilees makes it clear that Pentecost is celebrated 15th or 16th day of the third month, which is June 2nd or June 3rd.   When Moses received the law they were instructed to celebrate Pentecost to be 7 weeks after the Wave Sheaf which is also known as the Feast of First Fruits. Pentecost is also known as the ‘Feast of Weeks’.

The events below come from the Book of Jubilees  and all appear to have occurred on Pentecost.  As you read about each event, notice the following:
  • These events are all in the third Hebrew month.  The third Hebrew month typically starts on our current calendar date of May 20th.  
  • The events occurred on the 15th or 16th day of the third month, also stated as the middle of the third Hebrew month. This is June 2nd and 3rd on our current calendar and it depends on the time of day of the spring equinox.
  • In some of the verses the feast day is reflected as the ‘Feast of Weeks’ or the first fruits of the grain harvest.  Note that they are not referring to Wave Sheaf since that was not instituted until after 2450 AM.



1309 AM - Noah Receives Covenant from Yahweh

Jubilees 6:1 And on the new moon [beginning] of the third month he went forth from the ark, and built an altar on that mountain. And he made atonement for the earth, and took a kid and made atonement by its blood for all the guilt of the earth; for everything that had been on it had been destroyed, save 3 those that were in the ark with Noah.  (also see Genesis 8)

Jubilees 6:17 For this reason it is ordained and written on the heavenly tablets, that they should celebrate the feast of weeks in this month once a year, to renew the covenant every year. And this whole festival was celebrated in heaven from the day of creation till the days of Noah -twenty-six jubilees and five weeks of years [1309-1659 A.M.]:

The Books of Jubilees nor Genesis states how long it took Noah to build the altar and they do not state the actual date of the Feast of Weeks.  Noah may have celebrated the ‘Feast of Weeks’ on the 15th or 16th of the third month. 

See Yahweh's Solar Calendar to learn more about this calendar.  

1964 AM – Abraham Renews the Covenant Noah Received

Jubilees 14:1 1 After these things, in the fourth year of this week, on the new moon [beginning] of the third month, the word of the Lord came to Abram in a dream, saying: 'Fear not, Abram; I am thy defender, and 2 thy reward will be exceeding great.' And he said: 'Lord, Lord, what wilt thou give me, seeing I go hence childless, and the son of Maseq, the son of my handmaid, is the Dammasek Eliezer: he will be my heir, and to me thou hast given no seed.' And he said unto him: 'This (man) will not 4 be thy heir, but one that will come out of thine own bowels; he will be thine heir.' And He brought him forth abroad, and said unto him: 'Look toward heaven and number the stars if thou art able to number them.'  (also see Genesis15)

Jubilees 14:9 And He said unto him: 'Take Me an heifer of three years, and a goat of three years, and a sheep of three years, and a turtle-dove, and a pigeon.' And he took all these in the middle of the month [still the third month] and he dwelt at the oak of Mamre, which is near Hebron. And he built there an altar, and sacrificed all these; and he poured their blood upon the altar, and divided them in the midst, and laid them over against each other; but the birds divided he not.  (also see Genesis15)

Jubilees 14:18 And on that day the Lord made a covenant with Abram, saying: 'To thy seed will I give this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the river Euphrates, (also see Genesis15)

Jubilees 14:20 And on that day we made a covenant with Abram, according as we had covenanted with Noah in this month; and Abram renewed the festival and ordinance for himself for ever.

1979 AM – Abram becomes Abraham and Receives Covenant

Jubilees 15:1 And in the fifth year of the fourth week of this jubilee, [1979 A.M.] in the third month, in the middle of the month, Abram celebrated the feast of the first-fruits of the grain harvest. And he offered new offerings on the altar, the first-fruits of the produce, unto the Lord, an heifer and a goat and a sheep on the altar as a burnt sacrifice unto the Lord; their fruit offerings and their drink offerings he  offered upon the altar with frankincense. And the Lord appeared to Abram, and said unto him:  'I am God Almighty; approve thyself before me and be thou perfect. And I will make My covenant between Me and thee, and I will multiply thee exceedingly.' And Abram fell on his face, and God talked with him, and said (also see Genesis 17)

Genesis 17:21 But my covenant I establish with Isaac, whom Sarah will bear to you at this set time in the next year."

1980 AM – Isaac Born to Abraham and Sarah

Jubilees 16:13 Sarah and did unto her as He had spoken and she conceived. And she bare a son in the third month, and in the middle of the month, at the time of which the Lord had spoken to Abraham, on the festival of the first fruits of the harvest, Isaac was born. And Abraham circumcised his son on the eighth day: he was the first that was circumcised according to the covenant which is ordained for ever. (also see Genesis 21)

2129 AM – Judah Born to Jacob-Israel and Leah

Jubilees 28:14 And again Jacob went in unto her, and she conceived, and bare him a fourth son, and he called his name Judah, on the fifteenth of the third month, in the first year of the fourth week. [2129 A.M.]  (also see Genesis 29)

2172 AM – Yahweh promises Jacob-Israel that he will be a Great Nation

Jubilees 44:1 1 And Israel took his journey from Haran from his house on the new moon [beginning] of the third month, and he went on the way of the Well of the Oath, and he offered a sacrifice to the God of his father Isaac on the seventh of this month. And Jacob remembered the dream that he had seen at Bethel, and he feared to go down into Egypt. And while he was thinking of sending word to Joseph to come to him, and that he would not go down, he remained there seven days, if perchance he could see a vision as to whether he should remain or go down. And he celebrated the harvest festival of the first-fruits with old grain, for in all the land of Canaan there was not a handful of seed [in the land], for the famine was over all the beasts and cattle and  birds, and also over man. And on the sixteenth the Lord appeared unto him, and said unto him, 'Jacob, Jacob'; and he said, 'Here am I.' And He said unto him: 'I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham and Isaac; fear not to go down into Egypt, for I will there make of thee a great nation I will go down with thee, and I will bring thee up (again), and in this land shalt thou be buried, and Joseph shall put his hands upon thy eyes. Fear not; go down into Egypt.'  And his sons rose up, and his sons' sons, and they placed their father and their possessions upon wagons. And Israel rose up from the Well of the Oath on the sixteenth of this third month, and he went to the land of Egypt. (also see Genesis 46)  Note:  Genesis 35 may have happened in the third month and is a related event.

2450 AM - Moses Receives the Law

 Jubilees 1:1 And it came to pass in the first year of the exodus of the children of Israel out of Egypt, in the third month, on the sixteenth day of the month, [2450 Anno Mundi] that God spake to Moses, saying: 'Come up to Me on the Mount, and I will give thee two tables of stone of the law and of the commandment, which I have written, that thou mayst teach them.' And Moses went up into the mount of God, and the glory of the Lord abode on Mount Sinai, and a cloud overshadowed it six days. (also see Exodus 19)

Based on Exodus, this covenant was made between Yahweh and his chosen people on Pentecost:

Septuagint Exo 19:5-6 And now if ye will indeed hear my voice, and keep my covenant, ye shall be to me a peculiar people above all nations; for the whole earth is mine.  And ye shall be to me a royal priesthood and a holy nation: these words shalt thou speak to the children of Israel.  


See this calendar for more specifics about the dates and events

Below are the laws that Moses received regarding the Feast of Weeks (Pentecost):

Leviticus 23:15-21 "You shall count seven full weeks from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering.  You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath. Then you shall present a grain offering of new grain to the Lord.  You shall bring from your dwelling places two loaves of bread to be waved, made of two tenths of an ephah. They shall be of fine flour, and they shall be baked with leaven, as firstfruits to the Lord.  And you shall present with the bread seven lambs a year old without blemish, and one bull from the herd and two rams. They shall be a burnt offering to the Lord, with their grain offering and their drink offerings, a food offering with a pleasing aroma to the Lord.  And you shall offer one male goat for a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old as a sacrifice of peace offerings.  And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits as a wave offering before the Lord, with the two lambs. They shall be holy to the Lord for the priest.  And you shall make a proclamation on the same day. You shall hold a holy convocation [assembly]. You shall not do any ordinary work. It is a statute forever in all your dwelling places throughout your generations.

Deuteronomy 16:9-12 "You shall count seven weeks. Begin to count the seven weeks from the time the sickle is first put to the standing grain.  Then you shall keep the Feast of Weeks to the Lord your God with the tribute of a freewill offering from your hand, which you shall give as the Lord your God blesses you. And you shall rejoice before the Lord your God, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant, the Levite who is within your towns, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow who are among you, at the place that the Lord your God will choose, to make his name dwell there.  You shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt; and you shall be careful to observe these statutes.

During King Asa – Covenant made with Yahweh

2 Chronicles 15:10 So they gathered themselves together at Jerusalem in the third month, in the fifteenth year of the reign of Asa. They sacrificed to Yahweh in that day, of the spoil which they had brought, seven hundred oxen and seven thousand sheep. They entered into the covenant to seek Yahweh, the God of their fathers, with all their heart and with all their soul; and that whoever would not seek Yahweh, the God of Israel, should be put to death, whether small or great, whether man or woman. They swore to Yahweh with a loud voice, and with shouting, and with trumpets, and with cornets

Josephus Regarding the Wave Sheaf & Pentecost Feast Days

Josephus confirms in Book 3, Chapter 10 the calculation of Pentecost, as follows:
When a week of weeks has passed over after this sacrifice, (which weeks contain forty and nine days,) on the fiftieth day, which is Pentecost, but is called by the Hebrews Asartha, which signifies Pentecost, they bring to God a loaf, made of wheat flour, of two tenth deals, with leaven; and for sacrifices they bring two lambs; and when they have only presented them to God, they are made ready for supper for the priests; nor is it permitted to leave any thing of them till the day following. They also slay three bullocks for a burnt-offering, and two rams; and fourteen lambs, with two kids of the goats, for sins; nor is there anyone of the festivals but in it they offer burnt-offerings; they also allow themselves to rest on every one of them. Accordingly, the law prescribes in them all what kinds they are to sacrifice, and how they are to rest entirely, and must slay sacrifices, in order to feast upon them.

Josephus confirms in Book 13, Chapter 8 that Pentecost is the day after a Sabbath day:
And truly he did not speak falsely in saying so; for that festival, which we call Pentecost, did then fall out to be the next day to the Sabbath. Nor is it lawful for us to journey, either on the Sabbath day, or on a festival day (24) But when Antiochus joined battle with Arsaces, the king of Parthin, he lost a great part of his army, and was himself slain; and his brother Demetrius succeeded in the kingdom of Syria, by the permission of Arsaces, who freed him from his captivity at the same time that Antiochus attacked Parthin, as we have formerly related elsewhere.

Josephus confirms in Book 14, Chapter 13 that they continued to celebrate Pentecost:
But while there were daily skirmishes, the enemy waited for the coming of the multitude out of the country to Pentecost, a feast of ours so called; and when that day was come, many ten thousands of the people were gathered together about the temple, some in armor, and some without.

Josephus again confirms in Book 17, Chapter 10 that they continued to celebrate Pentecost:
But on the approach of pentecost, which is a festival of ours, so called from the days of our forefathers, a great many ten thousands of men got together; nor did they come only to celebrate the festival, but out of their indignation at the madness of Sabinus, and at the injuries he offered them.

Dead Sea Scrolls Date

According to a book called the Quman Cave by John M. Allegro, the Dead Sea Scrolls calendar showed that Pentecost was celebrated the 15th of the third month and was called the ‘Festival of Weeks’ or the ‘Festival of First Wheat’.  The picture below is from his book.  



 The Dead Sea Scroll or Qumran calendar reflected on this link also reflects that Pentecost or the ‘Feast of Weeks’ was celebrated on the 16th of the third month. 

Conclusion

Pentecost appears to be a very important date on our calendar and Yahweh has stated that we must appear before him on this date. 

Deuteronomy 16:16 Three times in a year shall all your males appear before Yahweh your 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 tents; and they shall not appear before Yahweh empty: every man shall give as he is able, according to the blessing of Yahweh your God which he has given you.

According to the Book of Jubilees it has been being celebrated in heaven since the date of creation and we are to continue this important festival.  Pentecost is symbolic of our Adamic Covenant with Yahweh that represents the restoration of our race and the receiving of the Holy Spirit.

King Arthur, Prince Madoc and the White Indians

Overview

I have been researching my family genealogy since 2001 and many times I have chatted with other researchers that state that they were told they had an Indian grandpa or grandpa in their ancestry, however, they cannot figure out who it would be.  In fact my mom told me back in when I started working on the family genealogy that she had a grandma that was an Indian princess.  I still have not figured out who the Indian princess might be.  However, I have found that I do have an Indian grandma on my dad’s side of the family which I will tell you more about below.

I believe that the reason that people cannot find their Indian grandpa and grandmas is due to the fact that everyone seems to believe that all Indians have dark skin since this is the way that television reflects them today.  The truth is that there were many white tribes and there were also wild or savage tribes - This is the way I found them described in old newspapers.  It appears that all people, no matter what their skin color was, were referred to as Native Americans or Indians if they lived here prior to the Mayflower Pilgrim’s arrival in 1620.   The Indians of east coast of American origins were mostly of Caucasian ancestry.  The Indians with west coast American origins were of Mongolia/Asian ancestry. 

The five civilized tribes were known as the Cherokees, Choctaws, Chickasaws, Creeks, and Seminoles.  This link shows that the Cherokees had homes built from wood just like Europeans, see here. Some of the Indians were not considered civilized since they were against the Europeans taking over their land that Yahweh provided them.   Indian comes from the word indigenous.

Prince Madoc & King Arthur’s voyage to America 562 AD

The videos below show historical and archaeological proof that many Welsh/British people came to America in 574 AD and settled on the east coast of America, known as the New World back then.  It also explains that these people were of Cimmerian ancestry.  The Cimmerians are also known as the Kimmerians.   The Cimmerians were descendants of the 12 Tribes of Israel and were white Christians.   A summary of their migration to America is as follows according to the video:

·         In 562 AD a comet hits Britain making a lot of land inhabitable. This causes many Britains to move north to more habitable land.  When the comet hit, Prince Madoc was at sea and it cause his boat to drift off course and he ended up in America. 

·         In 572 AD, Prince Madoc returned to Britain and told, his brother, King Arthur II about America.  
·         In about 574 AD, King Arthur II and approximately 70,000 Europeans migrated in 700 boats to America.  These new arrivals to America later became known as Native Americas or Indians.  I’m sure they became part of the Five Civilized Tribes.

·         In 579AD, King Arthur II was killed, in Kentucky, by a naked savage and was returned to Britain for burial. 

The most prominent early Indian tribes in Kentucky were the Cherokee, Chickasaws, and Shawnee.  Shawnee Indians were considered uncivilized.  Since there were tribes that were considered uncivilized tribes in the area, one of them was probably responsible for King Arthur’s death.





Reflected below is an American Indian Tribe map.  They consider before ‘European contact’ to mean before the Mayflower Pilgrims arrived in 1620.



Here is a more detailed map of the Kentucky area showing the Indians that lived in the area where King Arthur II was murdered.  There were a few uncivilized tribes in the area.


To view full map, click  here.

The true Cimmerians though were probably the Seminole Indians.  Seminole is derived from cimarrón, a Spanish term for "runaway" or "wild one", historically used for certain Native American groups in Florida.  The Cimmerians were running away from Assyrian captivity.

The is a river named Cimarron River in the United States and Wikipedia says it means ‘wild sheep’.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cimarron_River_(Arkansas_River)


According to Wikipedia, there is no proof the Cimmerians came from the region north of the Caucasus in Europe.

My Grandma Winnie

Family tradition is that my Grandma Winnie Lowry was a Cherokee Indian.  She married George Wood in 1814 in Kentucky.  They did live in Cherokee territory.  In 1835, when quite a few of the Cherokees were relocated to Oklahoma, there were 8 Lowry families and 14 Wood families included in the Trail of Tears list.  So it is quite possible that she was a Cherokee Indian.  They were not one of the families that relocated.  However, in 1855 George Wood committed suicide then Winnie and the whole family sold their property right away and moved to Missouri.  So something horrible happened that caused this event and prompted the family to move.  Below is a picture Winnie sitting in a rocking chair.



 My father’s mtDNA (maternal) was tested and his results show he is haplogroup ‘H’.  Therefore, Winnie Lowry is also haplogroup ‘H’.  Famous people with the same mtDNA are Maria Theresa, Queen Victoria, and the Apostle Luke.  Therefore, this is proof that Winnie is of white Caucasian descendant and she is a descendant to the 12 Tribes of Israel just as Queen Victoria is a descendant of King David and Luke descendant to the tribe of Benjamin.

My Autsomal DNA was tested and the results show I am of Caucasian ancestry only.  I have no black or Mongolian or non-European DNA in me.  Therefore, Winnie has to be of pure white European stock.

Indian Chiefs and Princesses

In 1919, this Indian Chief visited with the Prince of Wales.

Lizzie Rattling Gourd

A third cousin of mine did marry a woman whose great grandpa was on the trail of tears list.  My cousin’s name was David McNeal and his wife was Lizzie Rattling Gourd.  Back when they married, it was against the law to marry a different race here in America.  It was not legal until 1967 and then all states started allowing different races to marry. 

Below is my documentation on Lizzie’s and her family.  Notice in the documentation that there is confusion as to whether she is white or an Indian. 

Lizzie is descendant to Jackson Rattlingourd who is on the Trail of Tears list.

The US 1900 census reflects Lizzie at age 10 and her race was ‘In’ for Indian. It reflects her father was Thomas Gourd, an Indian, and his parents were born in Georgia. Her mother is Sallie and is reflected as ‘white’.  They were living in ‘Indian Territory’ which is now the state of Oklahoma.  Click on this link to see the census:  1900 Cherokee Nation Oklahoma Indian Census (Lizzie age 10 on line 33)

Here the family is shown on the Dawes of the Five Civilized Tribes list of 1902 as Rattlingourd – Their Type is ‘BB’ which means By Blood.  The Dawes list is also shown here with Rattlingourd.  Therefore, they are confirmed Cherokee Indians by blood.

The 1906 Miller Roll shows Lizzie as ‘Eliza’ and it shows her father Thomas also.

The 1910 US census shows that Lizzie is now married to David McNeal.  Lizzie is shown on line 56 and her race is reflected as ‘white’.  See this link: 1910 Federal Census, Oklahoma

The US census of 1920 shows Lizzie on line 61 and her race is ‘white’.  See this link:  1920 Federal Census, Oklahoma

The 1920 Federal Census for Lizzie’s father Thomas or Tom reflects he is ‘white’ also.  His wife Sallie had died and he has a new wife.

On the 1930 US Census Lizzie is now reflected with the race of ‘In’ which means Indian.  See this link on line 34: 1930 Federal Census, Oklahoma Lizzie’s father’s birthplace of Oklahoma has been stamped over with the words ‘mixed blood’ indicating that her father Thomas was of ‘mixed blood’.

Lizzie’s genealogy is posted here.  Notice her Rattling Gourd line kept marrying into English or Scottish last names – therefore, the Rattling Gourds had to be white Indians or otherwise this would not be allowed by law.

Lizzie’s findagrave marker shows her as Laura Elizabeth ‘Lizzie’ Rattling Gourd.  Here is her mother Sallie’s findagrave page shows a picture of the family.  Here is her great grandpa Jackson’s findagrave page.


The Rattlinggroud Family
Lizzie and her family all appear to be of white stock; however, the US government wanted them to appear to be different from the rest of the population.  I have documented more information about the government’s role in the Trail of Tears here.

In the News

Below are a few Newspaper articles about the Indians in America.

1838 news in column 3:  It is reported that the aborigines might be the lost tribes of Israel and that their feast days resemble the biblical feast days. Below is how the news article starts out, to see the full article click on the year. Notice they called Yahweh 'Yah-ho-he-wah'.





1873 news in column 4:  The Five Civilized Tribes had the responsibility of US citizenship; however they were not considered citizens.   He also states he is against the concentrating the civil and wild Indians into the same location.  See clips below.



1875 news in column 6:  The cost of the Indians report explains that the civil tribes will not be costing much but the wild Indians will take more money to make them civil.  See clip below.


It is my belief that many white tribes were considered uncivilized since they were attacking the new European settlers that were taking over their land that they had in their families for thousands of years.  The white Indians were 'free people' that were not subject to taxes and so forth prior to European arrival.

1847 news of the Rocky Mountain Indians that state they are from Azlan.  Azlan was near Michigan & Ohio.  These Indians had blue eyes and blonde hair.

1848 news of White Indians 

1851 Colonization of America Mounds - very good article that reflects life began in America.


A book written in 1848 regarding the mounds of the Mississippi Valley.
Ye shall make to me an altar of earth; and upon it ye shall sacrifice your whole burnt-offerings, and your peace-offerings, and your sheep and your calves in every place, where I shall record my name; and I will come to thee and bless thee.   And if thou wilt make to me an altar of stones, thou shalt not build them hewn stones; for thou hast lifted up thy tool upon them, and they are defiled.  Thou shalt not go up to my altar by steps, that thou mayest not uncover thy nakedness upon it.”  Sep Exo 20:24-26

Celtics and Indians Cousins


Conclusion

There were many different tribes of Indians living in America.  Many were of white ancestry and were considered civil.  They were Indigenous to America.

Many white Americans probably do have white Indian ancestors and they just do not know it. 
The history of the Caucasian race has and is being hidden from us so much that we have lost our true identity.

The Pentecost Feast Day, Yahweh Saves with Water

Overview

According to the Old Testament we are to celebrate the ‘Feast of Weeks’ throughout our generations.  In the New Testament the ‘Feast of Weeks’ is called Pentecost.  Pentecost means fiftieth in Greek.

Pentecost is celebrated seven weeks after the Wave Sheaf feast.  The date can also be calculated by counting 49 days after the Wave Sheaf Offering.  It is always the day after a normal Sabbath.  It is considered a Special Sabbath; therefore, no work can be done this day.  Pentecost is celebrated during the wheat harvest.

Leviticus 23:15-21 "You shall count seven full weeks from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering.  You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath. Then you shall present a grain offering of new grain to the Lord.  You shall bring from your dwelling places two loaves of bread to be waved, made of two tenths of an ephah. They shall be of fine flour, and they shall be baked with leaven, as firstfruits to the Lord.  And you shall present with the bread seven lambs a year old without blemish, and one bull from the herd and two rams. They shall be a burnt offering to the Lord, with their grain offering and their drink offerings, a food offering with a pleasing aroma to the Lord.  And you shall offer one male goat for a sin offering, and two male lambs a year old as a sacrifice of peace offerings.  And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits as a wave offering before the Lord, with the two lambs. They shall be holy to the Lord for the priest.  And you shall make a proclamation on the same day. You shall hold a holy convocation [assembly]. You shall not do any ordinary work. It is a statute forever in all your dwelling places throughout your generations.

Deuteronomy 16:9-12 "You shall count seven weeks. Begin to count the seven weeks from the time the sickle is first put to the standing grain.  Then you shall keep the Feast of Weeks to the Lord your God with the tribute of a freewill offering from your hand, which you shall give as the Lord your God blesses you. And you shall rejoice before the Lord your God, you and your son and your daughter, your male servant and your female servant, the Levite who is within your towns, the sojourner, the fatherless, and the widow who are among you, at the place that the Lord your God will choose, to make his name dwell there.  You shall remember that you were a slave in Egypt; and you shall be careful to observe these statutes.




Noah was Saved with Water from Yahweh’s Judgement

The first documented Feast of Weeks celebration occurred after Noah and his family survived the Yahweh’s judgement of his people by flood.  They had built an ark and lived in it, as instructed by Yahweh, which allowed them to survive while the other corrupt people drown during the flood.  Therefore, Noah’s family was saved by water from all the corruption that had been taking in the region where they had been living.  King David tells us that Yahweh brought blessing and peace to his people when he performed this judgement:

Psalm 29:9-11 In his temple everything says, "Glory!" Yahweh sat enthroned at the Flood. Yes, Yahweh sits as King forever. Yahweh will give strength to his people. Yahweh will bless his people with peace.

The Book of Jubilees tells us that the Feast of Weeks has been being celebration since the beginning of creation and that after the flood it is when Yahweh made a covenant with Noah.  We are to remember Yahweh’s covenant with Noah each time we see the rainbow and at every Feast of Weeks celebration.

Jubilees 6:15 And He gave to Noah and his sons a sign that there should not again be a flood on the earth. He set His bow in the cloud for a sign of the eternal covenant that there should not again be a flood on the earth to destroy it all the days of the earth. For this reason it is ordained and written on the heavenly tablets, that they should celebrate the feast of weeks in this month once a year, to renew the covenant every year. And this whole festival was celebrated in heaven from the day of creation till the days of Noah -twenty-six jubilees and five weeks of years [1309-1659 A.M.]: and Noah and his sons observed it for seven jubilees and one week of years, till the day of Noah's death.

The Book of Genesis documents the first Feast of Weeks celebration here on earth and provides with Yahweh’s rainbow covenant:

Genesis 8:20-22 Noah built an altar to Yahweh, and took of every clean animal, and of every clean bird, and offered burnt offerings on the altar. Yahweh smelled the sweet savor. Yahweh said in his heart, "I will not again curse the ground any more for man's sake, because the imagination of man's heart is evil from his youth; neither will I ever again strike everything living, as I have done. While the earth remains, seed time and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease."

Genesis 9:1-17 God blessed Noah and his sons, and said to them, "Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth. The fear of you and the dread of you will be on every animal of the earth, and on every bird of the sky. Everything that the ground teems with, and all the fish of the sea are delivered into your hand. Every moving thing that lives will be food for you. As the green herb, I have given everything to you. But flesh with the life of it, the blood of it, you shall not eat. I will surely require your blood of your lives. At the hand of every animal I will require it. At the hand of man, even at the hand of every man's brother, I will require the life of man. Whoever sheds man's blood, by man will his blood be shed, for in the image of God made he man. Be fruitful, and multiply. Bring forth abundantly in the earth, and multiply in it." God spoke to Noah, and to his sons with him, saying, "As for me, behold, I establish my covenant with you, and with your offspring after you, and with every living creature that is with you: the birds, the cattle, and every animal of the earth with you. Of all that go out of the ark, even every animal of the earth. I will establish my covenant with you; neither will all flesh be cut off any more by the waters of the flood; neither will there any more be a flood to destroy the earth." God said, "This is the token of the covenant which I make between me and you and every living creature that is with you, for perpetual generations: I set my rainbow in the cloud, and it will be for a sign of a covenant between me and the earth. It will happen, when I bring a cloud over the earth, that the rainbow will be seen in the cloud, and I will remember my covenant, which is between me and you and every living creature of all flesh, and the waters will no more become a flood to destroy all flesh. The rainbow will be in the cloud. I will look at it, that I may remember the everlasting covenant between God and every living creature of all flesh that is on the earth." God said to Noah, "This is the token of the covenant which I have established between me and all flesh that is on the earth."

Yahweh saved the 12 tribes of Israel from slavery when he divided the Red Sea allowing them to cross the sea on dry land and then he closed the path which made it impossible for the Egyptian armies to reach the 12 tribes.  Therefore, Yahweh saved the 12 tribes by water.  The 12 tribes escaped from Egypt on the evening of the Passover feast and the Red Sea parting occurred during the Feast of Unleavened Bread.  Shortly after these events Yahweh provided Moses the first five books of the bible that included the instructions for celebrating the Feast of Weeks.  The instructions for the Feast of Weeks celebration were given in the Books of Exodus, Leviticus and Deuteronomy (see above).  Here in Exodus we are told that the Feast of Weeks is the first fruits of the wheat harvest.

Exodus 34:21-24 "Six days you shall work, but on the seventh day you shall rest. In plowing time and in harvest you shall rest. You shall observe the Feast of Weeks, the firstfruits of wheat harvest, and the Feast of Ingathering [tabernacles] at the year's end. Three times in the year shall all your males appear before the Lord God, the God of Israel. For I will cast out nations before you and enlarge your borders; no one shall covet your land, when you go up to appear before the Lord your God three times in the year.

In the Exodus verses below, Yahweh made a covenant with the Israelites on Pentecost and then instructing the Israelites to be cleansed with water and ready for HIS return in three days to provide the laws to Moses.    

Based on Exodus, this covenant was made between Yahweh and his chosen people on Pentecost:


Septuagint Exodus 19:5-6 And now if ye will indeed hear my voice, and keep my covenant, ye shall be to me a peculiar people above all nations; for the whole earth is mine.  And ye shall be to me a royal priesthood and a holy nation: these words shalt thou speak to the children of Israel.  

Exodus 19:10-11 Yahweh said to Moses, "Go to the people, and sanctify them today and tomorrow, and let them wash their garments, and be ready against the third day; for on the third day Yahweh will come down in the sight of all the people on Mount Sinai.

Therefore, Yahweh saved them by water again and renewed his covenant he made with Noah and provided the Israelites with the law on the Feast of Weeks.  The 12 tribes were to live in peace by following the laws he provided.

The 10 Northern Tribes were Save by Water

The 10 northern tribes were taken into captivity by the Assyrians due to their transgression of the law.  Yahweh wanted these tribes moved away from where their transgressions were taking place.  Ezekiel chapter 36 explains that the house of Israel had to be removed from the heathen people.
Yahweh parted the waters of the Euphrates and made a highway for the 10 tribes to escape their captivity, just like he did with the Red Sea. 

Isaiah 11:16 And there shall be an highway for the remnant of his people, which shall be left, from Assyria; like as it was to Israel in the day that he came up out of the land of Egypt.

2 Esdras 13:40-45 these are the ten tribes which were led away from their own land into captivity in the days of King Hoshea [Hosea], whom Shalmaneser the king of the Assyrians led captive; he took them across the river, and they were taken into another land.  But they formed this plan for themselves, that they would leave the multitude of the nations and go to a more distant region, where mankind had never lived, that there at least they might keep their statutes which they had not kept in their own land.  And they went in by the narrow passages of the Euphrates river.  For at that time the Most High performed signs for them, and stopped the channels of the river until they had passed over. Through that region there was a long way to go, a journey of a year and a half; and that country is called Arzareth [Europe].

So again, Yahweh used water to save his people and bring peace to them.

The Mayflower Pilgrims Saved by Water

In 1620 Yahweh provided the Pilgrims, who were Israelite descendants, a ship called the Mayflower to carry them overseas away from Europe so that they could separate themselves from the religious practices they disagreed with that were going on in Europe.  Where they had lived in England there were not free to follow Yahweh's laws and they wanted to follow Yahweh’s laws as written in the bible.  Again Yahweh used water to save his people by taking the over the ocean and this brought them peace. 

The Apostles and Baptism by Water Saves

According to Leviticus 23:17, we are to bring two loaves of bread made of the finest flour to the Feast of Weeks celebration that is known as Pentecost in the New Testament.  I believe the reason two loaves of bread is required is because there will be two fulfillments to this feast day.  The first fulfillment was when the apostles received the Holy Spirit and baptized 3000 Israelites during the Pentecost of 33AD which was the year Yahshua was crucified and fulfilled the other spring feasts.

Acts 2:1-4 Now when the day of Pentecost had come, they were all with one accord in one place.  Suddenly there came from the sky a sound like the rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.  Tongues like fire appeared and were distributed to them, and one sat on each of them.  They were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other languages, as the Spirit gave them the ability to speak.

Acts 2:37-41 [On the day of Pentecost] Now when they heard this they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Brothers, what shall we do?"  And Peter said to them, "Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins, and you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.  For the promise is for you and for your children and for all who are far off, everyone whom the Lord our God calls to himself."  And with many other words he bore witness and continued to exhort them, saying, "Save yourselves from this crooked generation."  So those who received his word were baptized, and there were added that day about three thousand souls.

John the Baptist explains that you must repent of your sin to be forgiven and then be baptized with water.  It is only after you have performed these steps that you will have the opportunity to receive the Holy Spirit when Yahshua returns.

Mark 1:4-8 John appeared, baptizing in the wilderness and proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. And all the country of Judea and all Jerusalem were going out to him and were being baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. Now John was clothed with camel's hair and wore a leather belt around his waist and ate locusts and wild honey. And he preached, saying, “After me comes he who is mightier than I, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I have baptized you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”

Therefore at Pentecost, when the priest waves the two loaves of bread with the two lambs, this is referring to two different advents.  The first advent was when Yahshua came and was sacrificed as the Passover lamb, then shortly after the Apostles received the Holy Spirit at Pentecost during the wheat harvest.  The Apostles were received as the first loaf of fine wheat bread at Pentecost.  At Pentecost the Apostles, provided the example of how we are to prepare today, in order to be received as the second loaf of fine wheat bread when Yahshua arrives a second time representing the second lamb. 

Leviticus 23:20 And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the firstfruits as a wave offering before the Lord, with the two lambs.

The other loaf of fine wheat flour bread will be fulfilled when Yahshua returns and gives the Holy Spirt to those of us who have repented of sin and have been baptized in water.  So again, water will save us.

Pentecost Final Fulfillment

Yahshua provided us a parable regarding the wheat harvest.  The wheat is ready to be harvested during Pentecost. He tells us that the weeds will be burned and the wheat will be saved to his barn.  His barn is another way of stating he is saving the wheat harvest for his kingdom.

Matthew 13:24-30 He put another parable before them, saying, "The kingdom of heaven may be compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field, but while his men were sleeping, his enemy came and sowed weeds among the wheat and went away. So when the plants came up and bore grain, then the weeds appeared also. And the servants of the master of the house came and said to him, 'Master, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have weeds? '  He said to them, 'An enemy has done this. ' So the servants said to him, 'Then do you want us to go and gather them? ' But he said, 'No, lest in gathering the weeds you root up the wheat along with them.  Let both grow together until the harvest, and at harvest time I will tell the reapers, Gather the weeds first and bind them in bundles to be burned, but gather the wheat into my barn. '"

I really cannot be for sure how the Second Advent will play out since Yahshua tells us in Matthew 24:36 that only Yahweh knows.  Yahshua does tell us, in this same chapter of Matthew though, that is will occur as it did in the days of Noah.  During Noah’s flood the corrupt people were drowning on Feast of Weeks/Pentecost since the flood gates were opened eight days prior to Pentecost It was the following Pentecost that Noah celebrated Pentecost and received the covenant from Yahweh.

One possibility is that the Book of Revelation chapter 14 shows that the 144,000 from the 12 tribes will be sealed before the grape harvest.  Therefore it could be that the 144,000 sealed may receive the Holy Spirit on Pentecost prior to the grape harvest that will occur during the fall feasts

Another scenario, that would be more like Noah’s flood would be that on Pentecost the weeds would be gathered and burned (the great city burned Rev 17:15), then those who survive would endure the grape harvest during the fall feast, then those who are saved will receive the Holy Spirit at the wedding feast held on the following Pentecost. This scenario is very interesting since our punishment for creating the UN ends on May 14, 2018 – this is just nine days prior to Pentecost.  Then after this a very strong appearance of Revelation 12:1 occurs on October 10, 2018 where Virgo is clothed in the sun with the moon under her feet on the ‘Great Last Day’ fall feast day.

This verse in Revelation may be referring to the wedding feast on Pentecost:

Revelation 22:14 Blessed are those who wash their robes, so that they may have the right to the tree of life and that they may enter the city by the gates.

No matter which scenario Yahweh chooses, only those who have repented of their sin and have been baptized with water will qualify to receive the Holy Spirt.  

Past Pentecost Celebrations 

The bible provides evidence that the Israelites did celebrate Pentecost as stated.  They did have periods of time that they forgot this celebration; however, later the celebration was renewed when Yahshua was living.  The Israelite descendants have also had period of time where they did not celebrate Pentecost and then later started the tradition again.  Here in American an 1870 newspaper dedicated a whole page to report how Pentecost had been celebrated at various churches in their reporting area. Here is a 1909 newspaper article from Virginia that teaches the importance of Pentecost and baptism for the remission of sin.

In this 1922 newspaper article from North Dakota explains that Pentecost is the ‘Birthdate of the Church’.   Now many of us know that the word ‘church’ does not belong in our bible, the word church is translated from ‘ekklésia’ which means to assemble.  Therefore, on the Pentecost when the Apostles received the Holy Spirit could be seen as the start of local congregations gathering to worship and study the word of Yahweh.  This news article reflects that they were calling the feast of Pentecost ‘Whitsun Day’.  Whitsun is two words join together, white and Sunday.   It comes from wearing white to get baptized on Pentecost Sunday.  The article goes on to explain different customs for celebrating Pentecost throughout Europe. 

It is clearly evident that from the time of Noah to the time of the Apostles that the Pentecost feast days celebration has always been Christian in nature.  The newspaper articles above prove that the white European Christians have been the ones celebrating Pentecost and are the people responsible for carrying on the teachings of a water baptism being a requirement for being saved at Judgement Day. 

Pentecost Today

Today the Feast of Weeks, also known as Pentecost, should be celebrated and we should remember the times our ancestors were saved by water and then given covenants and laws to live by. All of Yahweh's Covenants were given on Pentecost, see this page for more information. These covenants were meant to bring us peace and freedom to practice Yahweh’s laws. 

On this feast day celebration, we should assemble and have a nice dinner with two loaves of bread.  We should remember that one loaf of bread was fulfilled with the Apostles receiving the Holy Spirt and the second loaf of bread will be fulfilled when Yahshua returns.  The bread is to have leaven in it which represent the sins we have done and the leaven of the Pharisees.   This leavened bread is also to remind us that we must totally repent of these sins and be baptized in water prior to Yahshua’s second coming.
