Shavuot, First Fruits

Day 49
Counting the Omer
Shavuot
Feasts of Weeks
Harvest
First Fruits

“Honey bees flitting
Joyfully feed
Seed time and harvest
Blossoms; Taste and see”

“Listen diligently to Me, and eat what is good, and delight yourself in abundance.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:2‬ ‭TLV‬‬

It is so close, the excitement mounting, or was it fear of the unknown? What will happen, why has He brought us here? He has protected us, kept us, planned for us to meet. Brought us out with signs and wonders, with the provisions, exactly as He swore to Abraham, true to His word. Why all this fuss? Did they remember? Had the 430 years of slavery and hardship dulled their memories? Had anyone kept the hope alive? Joseph left instructions to take his bones, saying when the Lord “visits” you be sure you take my bones. Did anyone remember? They took Joseph’s bones when they left Egypt, an empty tomb, evidence the children of Israel were not coming back to Egypt. Yes they remembered.

This meeting day planned long before they actually met. We have evidence seasons continue, so do His Feast Days. They are eternal, forever, mo’eds, appointments, to be remembered, rehearsed; rehearsals;

rehearsed, as if…

Tonight at sundown, day 49 begins. Tomorrow at sundown is the memorial of THE BIG DAY, or the first BIG DAY. We know there was another BIGGER DAY! I believe every year amazing covenants are available, His gift! reminding us I have not forgotten. Have you?

The memorial, when a covenant was offered. The Hand of Jehovah offered to a people, to a people He loves and is responsible for. If we knew we had an appointment, for a real encounter with Adonai and heard His heart; would we quickly obey or forget and turn away?

Elderberry Blossoms

Elderberry blossoms
True to His word
The rain maketh it bud
Isaiah prophesied as he heard

“Honey bees flitting
Joyfully feed
Seed time and harvest
Blossoms; Taste and see”

The Lord is good
Evidence assures
Only believe
The heart secures

“For as the rain and snow come down from heaven, and do not return there without having watered the earth,

My first elderberry buds. Planted in the fall of 2019

making it bring forth and sprout,

giving seed to sow and bread to eat,

so My word will be that goes out from My mouth.

It will not return to Me in vain, but will accomplish what I intend, and will succeed in what I sent it for. Instead of the thorn bush, a cypress will come up, and instead of the brier, a myrtle will come up, and it will be a memorial to Adonai, as an everlasting sign that will never be cut off.””
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭55:10-11, 13‬ ‭TLV‬

I feel the excitement, do you?

HIS WORD WILL NOT RETURN VOID, or barren or unfruitful. It did, it is, and it will produce.

First elderberry blossoms.

Behold I do a new thing…

““Do not remember former things, nor consider things of the past. Here I am, doing a new thing; Now it is springing up— do you not know about it? I will surely make a way in the desert, rivers in the wasteland. the people I formed for Myself, so they might declare My praise.”
‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭43:18-19, 21‬ ‭TLV‬‬

God bless you and keep you and make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you. The Lord cause His countenance to rise upon you and give you Shalom.

Until next time, thank you for listening with me. Laurette
