Pursue the Mysterious Voice of The Creator

“God works in mysterious ways.” We hear that phrase frequently.  Usually it’s when we can’t understand what Yehovah is doing, or make sense of why things are like they are.  And sometimes it’s when something unexpectedly good happens out of a bad situation.

“From the day after the Sabbath, the day you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, count off seven full weeks.”

Yeshua’s Ascension Brings a Double Portion on Pentecost

Yeshua's AscensionIn a separate blog post I discuss how the day of Pentecost/Shavuot kicks-off the new covenant, guarantees our eternal inheritance, and brings new life through the Holy Spirit – enabling us to fulfill our mission and destiny on earth.

As believers in Yeshua, we already carry the Holy Spirit within us every day.  But if we’re prepared for it, I believe there’s a double portion of Yeshua’s Spirit poured out on Shavuot. (more…)
