Pentecost Is the Greek Word Pentekoste = COUNT FIFTY, FIFTIETH DAY
By Augustus Paul
"And Yahweh spoke to Moses, saying, Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, When you be come into the land which I give to you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then you shall bring a sheaf of the first-fruits of your harvest to the priest: And he shall wave the sheaf [of barley corn/grain] before Yahweh, to be accepted for you: on the morrow (first day of the week) after the sabbath the priest shall wave (present) it [in the spring moon of Abib FIRST month of the biblical new year during the seven-day Feast of Unleavened Bread]. And you shall count to you from the morrow (first day of the week) after the sabbath, from the [first] day [of the week] that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering [in the spring moon of Abib FIRST month of the biblical new year during the seven-day Feast of Unleavened Bread]; seven [weekly] sabbaths shall be complete: Even to the morrow (first day of the week) after the seventh [weekly] sabbath shall you [pentekoste = Pentecost =] NUMBER FIFTY DAYS...And you shall proclaim on the selfsame [first day of the week pentekoste = Pentecost = FIFTIETH] day, that it (the first day of the week pentekoste = Pentecost = FIFTIETH DAY) may be an holy convocation (worship service gathering) to you: you shall do no servile work therein (on the first day of the week pentekoste = Pentecost = FIFTIETH DAY): it shall be a statute for ever in all your dwellings throughout your generations" (Leviticus 23:9-11, 15-16, 21). This is why in hearing from our Jewish-born Savior that His coming from heaven was NOT to abolish (annul, do away with) but to fulfill (MAGNIFY, Isaiah 42:21) the law (Matthew 5:17), His Jewish disciples in this New Covenant era understood this message from Him as being literal in the sense that the entirety of His law of liberty (James 1:25; 2:12) containing the legislation on the observance of the new moon, Sabbaths and feasts (Colossians 2:16-17), remains in effect, unaltered, even in the face of His death, burial and resurrection. Hence, this day was fully come in ten days after our Savior ascended back to heaven and the disciples were in one accord in one place on it in Sabbath praise and worship to our Creator without even knowing this would have the day when the comforting Holy Spirit (breath, force, power, wind) would have been poured down as the sound of a mighty rushing wind. Without bothering even to mention on which day of the week that was, Dr. Luke reports - perhaps in the Greek language - to Theophilus simply that the disciples were all with one accord in one place when the pentekoste = Pentecost = FIFTIETH DAY was fully come (Acts 2:1), according to the law (Leviticus 23; Numbers 28-29; Deuteronomy 16) as both Dr. Luke and Theophilus already knew, occurs ALWAYS on a FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK we know today as Sunday, following the weekly seventh day Sabbath. Such a first day of the week gathering by these New Testament Jewish disciples of our Jewish Savior Yahshua was therefore solely in observance of just this Old Testament commanded ANNUAL pentekoste = Pentecost = FIFTIETH DAY Sabbath Feast of Weeks/First-Fruits of the Wheat Harvest because that's the day of the week on which it is commanded to be observed and had NOTHING to do with, NOR implied a changing of the weekly holy Sabbath worship service gathering from the commanded seventh day of the week to the first day of the week. Just as the same Bible Old Testament command was obeyed by the primitive New Testament disciples of our Savior to proclaim/declare the pentekoste = Pentecost = FIFTIETH DAY as a holy Sabbath day, FREE from servile work, in a congregational praise and worship service to our Creator Yahweh on that particular first day of the week, so too will this Bible commanded third ANNUAL holy Sabbath day be obeyed, honored and celebrated on this same particular first day of the week in the form of a holy, restful, worship service gathering to our Creator from 10:30 a.m. (-4 GMT) on Pentecost Sunday 27th May 2012, at:
