Feasts of YHVH
Leviticus 23:1-44 (KJV)
And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, concerning the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be Holy Convocations, even these are my feasts.
Six days shall work be done; the seventh day is the Sabbath of rest, a Holy Convocation; ye shall do no work therein; it is the Sabbath of the LORD in all your dwellings. These are the Feasts of the LORD, even Holy Convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons:
In The Fourteenth Day of the First Month
In the fourteenth day of the first month at even is the LORD'S Passover.
On the Fifteenth Day of the Same Month
And on the fifteenth day of the same month is the Feast of unleavened bread unto the LORD; seven days ye must eat unleavened bread. In the first day ye shall have a Holy Convocation: ye shall do no servile work therein. Ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD seven days; in the seventh day is a Holy Convocation, ye shall do no servile work therein.
Feast of First Fruits
And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, when ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest unto the priest; and he shall wave the sheaf before the LORD, to be accepted for you, on the morrow after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it. And ye shall offer that day when ye wave the sheaf a he lamb without blemish of the first year for a burnt offering unto the LORD. And the meat offering thereof shall be two tenth deals of fine flour mingled with oil, an offering made by fire unto the LORD, for a sweet savor; and the drink offering thereof shall be of wine, the fourth part of a hin. And 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 forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings.
And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven Sabbaths shall be complete: Even unto the morrow after the seventh Sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto the LORD. Ye shall bring out of your habitations two wave loaves of two tenth deals: they shall be of fine flour; they shall be baked with leaven; they are the first fruits unto the LORD. And ye shall offer with the bread seven lambs without blemish of the first year, and one young bullock, and two rams; they shall be for a burnt offering unto the LORD, with their meat offering, and their drink offerings, even an offering made by fire, of sweet savor unto the LORD.
Then ye shall sacrifice one kid of the goats for a sin offering, and two lambs of the first year for a sacrifice of peace offerings. And the priest shall wave them with the bread of the first fruits for a wave offering before the LORD, with the two lambs; they shall be Holy to the LORD for the priest.
And ye shall proclaim on the selfsame day, that it may be a Holy Convocation unto you: ye shall do no servile work therein; it shall be a statute forever in all your dwellings throughout your generations. And when ye reap the harvest of your land, thou shalt not make clean riddance of the corners of thy field when thou reap, neither shalt thou gather any gleaning of thy harvest; thou shalt leave them unto the poor, and to the stranger, I am the LORD your GOD.
Feast of Shavuot**
Pentecost [feast of weeks] is one of YHVH’s Feasts recorded within Leviticus chapter 23. *Pentecost is the Greek, whereas Shavuot is the Hebrew name for the Feast. The exact timing for Shavuot begins in Leviticus 23:15 and is 50 days after the Feast of First Fruits. The Feast of Pentecost first convened at Mt Sinai, when the Law of YHVH was given; 3000 years later the Feast of Pentecost is celebrated with the pouring out of YHVH’s Holy Spirit as He had promised by His prophets.
Yahshua told His disciples to remain in Jerusalem until the Day of Shavuot had fully come (they had ten more days to wait). Yahshua kept the Law of YHVH, including His Feast Days. Yahshua was the Passover Lamb, Yahshua was without sin (Feast of Unleavened Bread), Yahshua was the First Fruits of them that slept, rose from the dead, and sent the Promise of the Holy Spirit spoken of by Joel, YHVH’s prophet, on the Feast of Shavuot!! Yahshua fulfilled ALL of the Spring Feast, and will definitely fulfill the Fall Feast.
YHVH is a GOD of order, His 7 Feasts are to be kept in their seasons (Divine Appointments) according to Genesis 1:14. The word “moed” meaning “feast” and moedim meaning feasts. Special Notation in Leviticus chapter 23:4
These are the Feasts of the LORD, even Holy Convocations, which ye shall proclaim in their seasons.

Power of the Holy Spirit of YHVH!
When the day of **Pentecost was Fully Come…
Disciples were able to speak new languages as the Spirit gave them utterance
When the day of *Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place; And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting; And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them; And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
There were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. When this was noised abroad, the multitude came together and were confounded because that every man heard them speak in his language! They were all amazed and marveled, saying one to another, behold, are not all these which speak Galileans; and how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born? Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and the dwellers in Mesopotamia, and in Judaea, and Cappadocia, in Pontus, and Asia, Phrygia, and Pamphylia, in Egypt, and in the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome, Jews and proselytes, Cretes and Arabians, we do hear them speak in our tongues the wonderful works of GOD!! (Acts 2:1-11) KJV
Read & Study Joel 2:28-29
Note: There are over fifteen different dialects noted in Acts 2:1-11! Each person from the above cities and countries could clearly understand what Yahshua’s disciples were saying! They clearly heard unlearned (void of formal earthly education) men from Galilee speaking in languages spoken of in Acts chapter two, regarding the wonderful plan of YHVH through His Son Yahshua ha Mashiach!
A Memorial of Blowing of Trumpets
And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, speak unto the children of Israel, saying, in the seventh month, in the first day of the month, shall ye have a Sabbath, a Memorial of Blowing of Trumpets, an Holy Convocation. Ye shall do no servile work therein: but ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD.
A Day of Atonement
And the LORD spoke unto Moses, saying, Also on the tenth day of this seventh month there shall be a Day of Atonement; it shall be an Holy Convocation unto you; and ye shall afflict your souls, and offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD. And ye shall do no work in that same day: it is a Day of Atonement, to make an atonement for you before the LORD your GOD. Whatsoever soul it be that shall not be afflicted in that same day, he shall be cut off from among his people. And whatsoever soul it be that doeth any work in that same day, the same soul will I destroy from among his people. Ye shall do no manner of work, it shall be a statute forever throughout your generations in all your dwellings. It shall be unto you a Sabbath of rest, and ye shall afflict your soulsl in the ninth day of the month at even, from even unto even, shall ye celebrate your Sabbath.
The Feast of Tabernacles
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Speak unto the children of Israel, saying, The fifteenth day of this seventh month shall be the Feast of Tabernacles for seven days unto the LORD.
On the first day shall be a Holy Convocation; ye shall do no servile work therein. Seven days ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, on the eighth day shall be a Holy Convocation unto you; and ye shall offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD; it is a solemn assembly; and ye shall do no servile work therein.
These are the feasts of the LORD, which ye shall proclaim to be Holy Convocations, to offer an offering made by fire unto the LORD, a burnt offering, and a meat offering, a sacrifice, and drink offerings, everything upon his day. Beside the Sabbaths of the LORD, and beside your gifts, and beside all your vows, and beside all your freewill offerings, which ye give unto the LORD. Also in the fifteenth day of the seventh month, when ye have gathered in the fruit of the land, ye shall keep a feast unto the LORD seven days, on the first day shall be a Sabbath, and on the eighth day shall be a Sabbath.
And ye shall take you on the first day the boughs of goodly trees, branches of palm trees, and the boughs of thick trees, and willows of the brook; and ye shall rejoice before the LORD your GOD seven days. And ye shall keep it a Feast unto the LORD seven days in the year. It shall be a statute forever in your generations, ye shall celebrate it in the seventh month. Ye shall dwell in booths seven days; all that are Israelites born shall dwell in booths; That your generations may know that I made the children of Israel to dwell in booths, when I brought them out of the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your GOD. Moses declared unto the children of Israel the Feasts of the LORD.
To the Most High GOD, the Creator of all there is, was and ever will be; and to His Holy Son, King Yahshua ha Mashiach, the Annointed One of GOD, the Salvation of GOD, and Holy is His Name.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!!
Thank You, Holy, Righteous Father, The GOD of Heaven and earth. Amen!!!
