Yahuah Hayah's Feast of Firstfruits

Hi! I'm Pastor Floyd! I wish I had a photograph of you, too, so that I could visualize to whom I am talking! But Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), the Creator and Lord God over all the universe, knows who you are; and that's all that matters!

At this point in your participation in the service, I recommend that you go to Sabbath Ritual and participate in the prayer in which we like to engage each week, as I do each morning, to avail ourselves of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) "Power of Agreement" (Matthew 18:19) for the basic things that all of us must have each day of our lives! Although repetitious and time-consuming, doing that will bless you, the fellowship and all of His children in the universe! It is what some people call "getting prayed up"!

As for the thoughts that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) gave me for this Sabbath, the special day commanded by Him for His children to observe on this day is His Feast of Firstfruits! So let us now consider that Feast by looking at His commandment through Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) through Moses concerning it:

10 Speak, unto the children of Israel, and say, unto them, When ye be come into the land that I give unto you and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest! 11 And he shall wave the sheaf, before Yahuah, to be accepted for you: on the morrow after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. 12 And ye shall offer that day, when ye wave the sheaf, an he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto Yahuah. 13 The meat offering thereof shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto Yahuah for a sweet savour! And the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of an hin! 14 Ye shall eat neither bread nor parched corn nor green ears, until the selfsame day that ye have brought an offering unto your God! It shall be a statute for ever throughout your generations in all your dwellings! (Leviticus 23:10 to 14)

A weekly Sabbath always comes during Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Feast of Unleavened Bread, which feast this fellowship celebrates from the evening of March 14 until March 21! He commanded that "on the morrow after the Sabbath the priest shall wave" the sheaf representing the first of the early harvest that was grown that time of year!

Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) commanded also that "an he lamb without blemish of the first year" be sacrificed "for a burnt offering unto Yahuah"!

When the last week of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ)'s ministry in person among His children took place, the prophetic significance of Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s spring feasts became evident! As "the Lamb of God" (John 1:29), Yeshua was crucified at exactly the time when the children of Israel sacrificed their lamb for Yahuah's Feast of the Passover! He was "raised again the third day"! (Matthew 16:21)

"The first day of the week" (John 20:1), which indeed was "on the morrow after the Sabbath", Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) appeared to "Mary Magdalene" (John 20:1); which was in the middle of the special week that began with His death and was glorified with His resurrection, which week Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM) commanded His children to celebrate by not eating leaven, which represented the sin that Yeshua was without! Yahuah wrote, through His faithful apostle, of Yeshua's appearing to Mary:

15 Jesus saith, unto her, Woman, why weepest thou? whom seekest thou? She, supposing him to be the gardener, saith unto Him, Sir, if thou have borne Him hence, tell me where Thou hast laid Him, and I will take Him away! 16 Jesus saith, unto her, Mary. She turned herself and saith, unto Him, Rabboni! which is to say, Master! 17 Jesus saith, unto her, Touch me not; for I am not yet ascended to My Father! But go, to My brethren, and say, unto them, I ascend, unto My Father and your Father and to My God and your God. (John 20:15 to 17)

That encounter between the risen Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) and Mary Magdalene was precious! He chose to use her to be His first evangelist, commanding her to go to His disciples, whom He called His "brethren", to tell them of the glorious news that He had risen from the dead and that He would soon ascend to Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM), Whom He said was His Father and "your Father", His God "and your God", thus establishing one more time His children's right to regard the Creator of all and King over it as both their "Father" and their "God"!

The day of that first appearance of Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) to Mary Magdalene was the day that Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah (I AM)'s Feast of Firstfruits prophetically forecast! As the risen Mawshiyach or Christ, Yeshua was "the Firstfruits" to be resurrected! And we do well to observe that feast, along with all the others, each of them having such wonderful meaning!

I pray that this information I have given you is true in Yahuah (Self-Existent, Eternal) Hayah's (I AM's) sight, that it can be stored in your spirit for great and beneficial use to you as the days go by and that we might hear from you now and then as you find it working its wonders in your life!

Father, by my "faith in God"! (Mark 11:22) I "speak" (Mark 11:23), to your children, and command that they be given the knowledg and understanding of Your Feast of Firstfruits!

I rejoice (John 15:11) that you are faithful to fulfill your children's powerful use of their "dominion ... over every living thing that moveth upon the Earth"! (Genesis 1:28) I know you answered this prayer, in ha Kodesh Ruach, your Holy Spirit, the moment I said it; and I believe I "receive" (Mark 11:24) a family of brothers and sisters who are rejoicing over knowing that Yeshua (Jesus) ha Mawshiyach (the Messiah or Christ) rose from the dead a gloriously resurrected man and victor over the worst that any enemy can do to anyone!

I pray that Yahuah Hayah shall bless you mightily, throughout the coming week, and that you will realize in your heart how important you are to the ministry that He has given to Faith Harvest Israel to see that His truth is learned, believed and carried out by all His children throughout the world, so many of whom are in such desperate need of it.

Amen! Alleluia!
