of the key scriptures to finding the day
that we observe for Pentecost (or feast of weeks)
has been misinterpreted by most religious groups
and it is found in Lev. 23:16 where it says, “even
unto the tomorrow, after the seventh Sabbath shall
you number fifty days.” It does not say it
is the fiftieth day.
of tradition of men, they begin to number
the fifty days from the first Sabbath instead of
the morrow after the seventh Sabbath. You do number
seven Sabbaths complete (Lev. 23:16) and you begin
to number the weeks from the time you put the cycle
to the corn. (Deut. 16:9) Therefore, there were
two counts to find Pentecost. One is from the morrow
after the Sabbath that the priest waves the sheaf,
and then you number seven Sabbaths complete. (Lev.
23:16) Then you are to number fifty days after the
seventh Sabbath. You count the weeks, and then you
count your days, and then and only then will all
the other scriptures harmonize with it.
is why it is called both the Feast of Weeks
(forty-nine days) and the Feast of Pentecost (Pentecost
means fifty), and weeks means sevens. The Feast
of Weeks would be only forty-nine days and not fifty,
so the Feast of Weeks is not fifty days. It is forty-nine
days. Pentecost means fifty. This proves there are
two counts even if you interrupt the second count
as one day after the seventh Sabbath (forty-nine)
instead of numbering fifty days after seventh Sabbath
both counts whether one day or fifty begin after
the seventh Sabbath. Just remember one does not
mean Pentecost, but fifty means Pentecost. You have
seven weeks (six workdays plus a Sabbath which =
forty-nine days and you have fifty days from the
morrow after the seventh Sabbath — a total
of ninety-nine. That total plus three New moon days,
worship days that are not counted as one of the
six ordinary workdays or weekly Sabbaths totals
102 days. Now, the hail was on the tenth day of
the first moon in Egypt, and it did not hurt the
wheat because it had not come up. It was probably
planted a few days before the 10th, which would
give a correct time for the wheat to mature, and
a first fruit could be offered. It takes wheat from
110 to 120 days to mature according to the Department
of Agriculture. Now, remember there are two kinds
of wheat and that is Winter Wheat and Summer Wheat
(or Spelt rye). The point of all this is that there
is no way for wheat to mature in fifty days for
first fruit if planted in first month as the word
not grown up (or in dark) suggests. (Ex. 9:32) This
cattle-killing hail killed every herb and grass
of the field. Ex. 9:22 and 25. (Look up herb in
if we interpret Lev. 23:16 as to start
our count of fifty days after the seventh Sabbath
instead of the first Sabbath, we will have time
for a wheat crop to mature. Remember the new meat
offering was to be wheat, and from their labor that
they sowed in the field. (Ex. 23:16) If they sowed
summer wheat in the 1st month when they came into
the land, then they could have a 1st fruit of wheat
from their labor they sowed in the field in time
for Pentecost, but not in 50 days.
is no scripture for a Pilgrimage Feast
in the third moon, but there is a scripture for
a Pilgrimage Feast in the forth moon. Ex. 32:5 and
Aaron proclaimed it for it was his job to proclaim
the Feasts of YHWH. Lev. 23:21. Guess what! It was
exactly fifty days after the seventh Sabbath that
Aaron said it was a Feast to YHWH and it was the
exact same day the Law was actually given to Moses.
Ex. 31:18 and Deut. 9:11, proving the count for
fifty days start after the seventh Sabbath complete.
word Feast that Aaron used here in the
fourth moon is the word used for Feast of Weeks.
It is used for any one of the three Pilgrim Feasts
(see concordance), and they were to go up to Jerusalem.
This word is used for Passover, Pentecost, and Tabernacle;
and we know Aaron was not talking about the Pilgrim
Feast of Passover, because it is in the first moon
or the Feast of Tabernacle because it is in the
seventh moon. It had to be Pentecost, which is in
the fourth moon and it was exactly fifty days after
the seventh Sabbath, not first Sabbath. We know
Aaron was not talking about a Solar Sabbath that
included the New moon days as ordinary days. One
through seven, one through seven, etc., through
the New moon days because if you count that way,
and count the New moon day you will not hit the
same day Aaron said was the Pilgrim Feast. Try it
with your count. Do not get crazy if your count
does not work and call Aaron a liar or YHWH’s
Word a lie.
was it a Feast in the fourth moon or not?
Is all scripture inspired of YHWH or not? Judge
for yourself. If Aaron had already kept the Pilgrim
Feast in the third moon He could not have fooled
anybody that there was another Feast in the fourth
moon. Remember too, that they were getting manna
every six days and none on the Sabbath; and it began
in the second moon on the sixteenth day of the moon,
and so they got manna for forty years, which would
include the time that Moses was on the Mount. They
knew when the weekly feast days were, and Aaron
was present when Moses was told about the Pilgrim
Feast of weeks. Ex. 23:15, 16, and Ex. 24:1-9. Now,
if there was not a feast of YHWH in the fourth moon
it would have been exposed, as when Jeroboam kept
a Feast in the eighth moon on the fifteenth day.
The Word declares that the eighth moon was wrong
(not the fifteenth day) for the Feast of YHWH. It
was the moon, which He devised of His own heart.
I Kings12:32, 33. Now, the Scriptures lets us know
that there is no feast in the eighth moon, and would
have let us know if there was no Feast in the fourth
moon, the same word for Feast is used in both accounts.
the Father did not say anything against
the fifteenth day in the eighth moon because the
day was right, it was the eighth moon that was wrong.
The same thing in Aaron’s case, the Father
said nothing against the day or the moon because
it was right (fifty days after the seventh Sabbath).
It was the molten calf they made and worshipped
that the Father YHWH reproved them for, and not
the day or month. We cannot ignore the inspired
Aaron had said that tomorrow is the Sabbath
and built an alter and worshipped the calf, and
YHWH rebuked him for the calf and said nothing against
the day or moon like in Jeroboam’s case, would
you still say it was not the Sabbath just because
he worshipped the calf on that day? Remember all
scripture is inspired of YHWH. Even this one.
am not sure that they were trying to please
YHWH, and through ignorance, they made the calf,
or they wanted something that the Egyptians could
see when they returned to Egypt. I don’t understand
how they could have turned from the One who had
done so many miracles that they had witnessed. Now,
after Moses was gone for so long, it can be seen
why they would want to go back to Egypt. They would
be able to rule Egypt again as Joseph did, because
Egypt was whipped even before Pharaoh and his army
were destroyed, and Pharaoh’s son was dead.
They could have easily ruled Egypt, and in a natural
way of looking at things; it was the best thing
to do, but YHWH had a better plan that they did
not understand. All they could see was their leader
was missing and, it was time for Pentecost. Moses
should have been back and they knew they could have
been rulers in Egypt if they returned, knowing the
army was defeated and Egypt was in a bad position.
YHWH did not want His people to rule Egypt, but
to rule the World so long as they obeyed His voice.
we do know is that it was fifty days after
the seventh Sabbath (Lev. 23) that Aaron said this,
and that YHWH did not say anything about the day
or month being wrong, when Aaron said it was a Pilgrim
Feast to YHWH, Pentecost.
fact that suggests a latter Pentecost is
in Acts 2:13 when they were accused of being full
of new wine. There is no New wine (sweet wine) in
the third moon (grapes were not ripe yet) but are
at the end of the fourth moon and that is when Aaron
said it was the Feast. Peter could have said there
is no new wine for them to be full of, but said
they were not drunk as they supposed. (It is only
9:00). Nehemiah observed men trading the wine presses
and gathering sheaves (wheat) and bringing grapes
etc on the Sabbath day. There is no grapes to tread
in the third moon and only winter wheat, but in
the end of 4th moon He could have seen grapes (new
wine) and sheaves of summer wheat being gathered.
Winter sheaves gathering was over before grapes
were ready. Nemiah (13:15) Great embarrassment for
3rd month Pentecost doctrine.
Paul kept a latter Pentecost. Count
the days in Acts 20:6-38 and 21:1-30. It shows the
Apostle Paul keeping Pentecost beyond fifty days
from Passover. Pay close attention to the phrase
5:9 put the Feast on a Sabbath (29th) and
early church Fathers understood this to be the Feast
of Pentecost because John records all three Feasts.
John 2:13-23 — Passover, John 5:1-9 —
Pentecost and John 7:2 — Tabernacle. Now if
John 5:1-9 was Pentecost it was on a Sabbath, not
the morrow after Sabbath, like most think. Pentecost
is on the 29th (Sabbath) of the fourth moon. Same
as the other two Pilgrim Feasts (first and seventh
moons) are on Sabbaths. Why think it strange the
third Pilgrim Feast is on a Sabbath also, instead
of morrow after Sabbath? It can be on the 28th,
the day before the Sabbath but not the day after
the Sabbath. Never.
is how to figure the dates that Moses
was in the Mount. First, we know he was in the Mount
forty days and forty nights. (Ex. 24:18) Now, Ex.
19:1-3 tells us that when he reached the Mount it
was in the third moon and on the same day that they
were gone forth out of the land of Egypt, which
was on the Night or beginning of the 16th, according
to Num. 33:3. They departed (pulled up stakes) from
Remises in the first moon; on the fifteenth day
of the first moon;(Passover) (and) on the morrow
after the Passover the children of Israel went out
(16th). It is not saying the 15th is the next day
after Passover because Passover is still going on,
on the 15th. Now we know the Passover lamb was prepared
(Preparation) on the 14th but, was not over on the
15th because it says it was to be eaten with unleavened,
which began on the 15th (or 14th at even (night).)
Ex. 12:8-18. Now if the Passover was still going
on until the Passover lamb is gone on the 15th,
the morrow after Passover would be the 16th.
not traveling on the 15th Sabbath; they were delivered
from Egypt’s bondage on the 15th (Sabbath).
(Deut. 5:15) Moreover, they spoiled the Egyptians
on the 15th, but actually journeyed on the beginning
of the 16th. (Num.33:3) Exodus 19:3 states that
Moses went up to YHWH on the day they arrived (16th).
Notice verse two. For they were departed from Rephidim,
which means rest, and is only a few miles from the
Mount. They rested on the 15th (Sabbath) in Rephidim,
and after rest day was over, they came to the Mt.
on the 16th. This is the same day that they actually
went forth on their journey out of Egypt. Then YHWH
told Moses to sanctify the people today, and tomorrow,
and be ready against the third day (18th). (Ex.
19:3) However, it was the next day (19th) that Moses
went into the Mount for forty days, (Ex. 24:4-18)
and at the end of the forty days and forty nights
the Law was given to Moses and it was the same day
that Aaron said was the Feast of YHWH which was
fifty days after the 7th Sabbath.
positive proof that Pentecost is in the
fourth moon is that you must have a wheat harvest.
It must be after the years end (solstice or turning
of the Sun.) (Ex. 34:22) This happens on June 22nd
and to have a Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) on June
6th, 8th, etc. before the years turning is not in
harmony with Ex. 34:22.
Pentecost there is a major harvest of wheat
and this harvest is four months long from time seed
is sown to time it is harvested. John 4:35 says
“say not ye, there are yet four months, and
then cometh harvest? Behold, I say unto you, lift
up your eyes, and look on the fields; for they are
white already to harvest.” They understood
that after four moons from time seed is sown there
would be a harvest, and He told them to look at
the fields for it was time Winter wheat is seven
moons to harvest, which proves it was Summer Wheat
that was in the ground in the first moon in Egypt’s
plague, and would be ready for a first fruit harvest;
110 to 120 days(4 moons) later, not fifty days.
we know there is a spiritual meaning here
also. He often used natural things to reveal the
spiritual things, and we know wheat was a type of
souls to be gathered into the barns. Notice He used
this harvest in a spiritual sense, like in other
passages referring to wheat harvest. (John 4:35)
John 2:23 is Passover feast, and John 5:1-9 is Pentecost,
after first harvest of barley. It takes more than
four moons to harvest for barley, and winter wheat.
The point is this — the wheat harvest was
a four moons long harvest, from sowing to reaping,
sown in the beginning of first moon and reaped at
the end of the fourth moon. It had to be Summer
Wheat because Winter Wheat is at least six or seven
moons to harvest. If it is sown in December; you
have December through June, seven moons, which proves
it was not Winter Wheat we were dealing with, plus
it would have been grown up and destroyed with the
barley, by the hail on the tenth day of the first
moon in Egypt, but it would have still been in dark
if sown in first moon and not destroyed by hail,
and ready for harvest in the fourth moon or fifty
days after the seventh Sabbath. (See John 4:35 for
proof the wheat harvest was four moons to harvest.)
think for a minute, you can have all this
harmony by understanding only one scripture differently,
and that is “the morrow after the seventh
Sabbath shall you number fifty days” instead
of numbering from the first Sabbath. That is not
too much to give up for so much harmony, and if
not for tradition, you would accept it right away.
It is amazing how people will follow some blind
leaders who do not even believe in the son of YHWH,
above what the scripture teaches. Remember the Jews
are not scripture, the Baptist Church is not Scripture,
and the Catholic Church is not scripture. The Scriptures
is scripture so stay with what it says and be saved,
and not the tradition of men and be lost.
teach to begin the count for Pentecost
from the first Sabbath instead of the seventh Sabbath.
Here is some of the harmony you can enjoy by numbering
from the morrow after the seventh Sabbath.
will harmonize with the time that Aaron
the High Priest of YHWH proclaimed the Pilgrim Feast
of YHWH and that it was in the fourth moon on the
29th day, exactly fifty days after the seventh Sabbath.
(Ex. 32:5) Now it is known this scripture is very
detrimental to the doctrine of Pentecost being in
the third moon, so they must discredit what the
Scriptures says that Aaron said the Pilgrim Feast
was in the fourth moon. One way to do this would
be to say that they worshipped the calf, which was
wrong, and the Pilgrimage Feast day was also wrong,
but what if Aaron had said tomorrow is the Sabbath
of YHWH and worshipped the calf on that day, would
you say that day was wrong also just because they
worshiped the calf on that day? What is the difference?
Better yet, what if it had been on the fiftieth
day from the first Sabbath, which would match up
with their Pentecost in the third moon when Aaron
said what day it was, would you still say it was
not Pentecost because they made the calf? Be honest
with yourself. Who are we to say that Aaron did
not know what day it was? Remember all scripture
is inspired of YHWH, and we have no inspired scripture
saying the time was wrong like in Jeroboam’s
It will be the same day the law was give
to Moses. (Ex. 31:18 and Deut. 9:11) If
that matters to someone. Remember, the giving of
the Law was mentioned by Stephen around Pentecost
alone with the Angels. Acts 7:53. Deut. says YHWH
came with 10,000 angels with the law on Mt. Sinai
to give law. Also, Stephen mentioned the calf that
was worshiped in those days (Pentecost). Remember
the calf was worshiped on Pentecost 50 days after
the seventh Sabbath and 3,000 souls died.
It gives a real reason why the wheat was not destroyed;
the reason was because it had not come up. (Ex.9:32)
The word “grown up” goes back to being
hid in darkness. (see concordance) Some want to
say the word for “in dark” means “dark
green,” and was not destroyed by the hail,
but this was cattle killing hail. It had no respect
of color, because it says it killed every green
herb. All that was in the field.
It explains the word shall (future)
in Lev. 23:16 “tomorrow after the seventh
Sabbath shall you number fifty days.” The
count starts after the seventh Sabbath.(future,
It also explains how the disciples
could have been accused of being drunk on new wine,
if Pentecost was in the fourth moon, because there
was no new wine in the third moon. (Acts 2:1 and
Feast of Weeks must be after years end (turning
of Sun or Soloists on June 22nd.) The first part
of June (third moon) is not at the years end. (Ex.
They were commanded to bring the
first fruits of their labors, which they sowed in
the field (wheat), when they came into the land.
(Ex. 23:16) “When ye come into the land they
were commanded to reap the harvest thereof (barley)
then wave the sheaf of the wave offering, then count
seven Sabbaths complete, even until the morrow,
after the seventh Sabbath shall ye number fifty
days.” (Lev. 23:10), they were to number seven
Sabbaths complete from the day they brought the
sheaf of the wave offering(barley), then number
fifty days, and then offer the new meat offering(wheat).
(Lev. 23:16) Now get this, if the new meat offering
is wheat (Ex. 34:22) and had to be from their labors
that they sowed in the field (Ex. 23:16), then they
had to plant the Summer Wheat in the first moon
when they came into the land. It would have been
impossible for the wheat to mature in fifty days,
for them to have a first fruit offering from their
labors, it would be ready in 100 days for first
fruit. This would be fifty days after seventh Sabbath.
Study this close for this alone proves the 50-day
count begins after the seventh Sabbath.
This explains how Paul could tarry
many days in, Acts 21:10, not 2 or 3 days, tracing
Paul’s journey from Philippi to Jerusalem
and counting the days to see if Paul went over fifty
days from Passover to Pentecost. (Acts 20 -21:7)
You don’t have to say many days mean 2 or
Samson visited his wife in the time of wheat harvest,
got mad at his father-in-law, and destroyed the
wheat, along with the grapes and olives. We believe
the Scriptures count puts the wheat harvest at the
end of July, and that is when the grapes, olives,
and wheat were ripe. Samson was attacking ripe wheat,
grapes, and olives to get revenge. It would not
have been as effective to attack the trees that
were not bearing because they were looking forward
to the ripe fruit that Samson had destroyed. There
was no Pentecost in the third moon because there
were no grapes in the third moon. Nature working,
Paul said, “After the way
they call Heresy, so worship I the Mighty One of
our Fathers.” Nothing can be found that goes
against beginning the count of fifty days after
the seventh Sabbath, except the tradition of men.
Plenty of scriptures can be found to disprove counting
from the first Sabbath.
closing, just as sure as YHWH is restoring
His true Name back to His people, He is
restoring His true Pentecost, and His true Sabbaths.
Just like the first recorded Pentecost on the day
the law was given to them written in stone there
were about three thousand souls destroyed. (Ex.
32:28) In addition, when the law was written in
their hearts on Pentecost years later they were
about three thousand souls saved. (Acts 2:41) 3,000
on both Pentecosts.
