Pentecost (Feast of Weeks)
The third annual feast day is the Feast of Weeks, or Pentecost (Leviticus 23:16-21; Acts 2:1). This festival, which corresponded with the first harvest of the season, was the day God miraculously granted His Spirit to the New Testament Church (Acts 2).
Pentecost continues to remind us that God is the Lord of His harvest, choosing and preparing the firstfruits of His coming Kingdom by granting them His Spirit (Matthew 9:38; Luke 10:2; Romans 8:23; James 1:18). God’s Spirit empowers us with the love of God, the motivation to obey Him, and a sound mind to discern His truth (2 Timothy 1:7; John 15:26; 16:13). Only those led by God’s Spirit are called the Sons of God (Romans 8:9, 14).

Wedding Parables of Jesus Christ, What Do They Mean?
Most people love weddings. Oftentimes we plan big wedding celebrations, but do you know that the Bible has so many wedding narratives and parables? Have you ever wondered why? Are these weddings just milestones or are they symbolisms of something grand and something relevant to our salvation?
The Bible starts (Genesis 2:18-25) and ends (Revelation 19:7-8) with a wedding narrative. In His 3½ years of ministry, Jesus Christ told many wedding parables. Interestingly, the Old Testament pictures Israel as betrothed to God while the New Testament church as the bride of Christ. As wedding seems to be an important and familiar theme in the Bible, wouldn’t you want to know more about this?
To learn more about the biblical wedding narratives/parables and their meanings, please join this Bible Study broadcast live from Crimson Hotel Filinvest City on June 3, 2023 at 2:30 PM.
