The Feast/Festival of FIRST FRUITS usually comes about half way through the Feast/Festival of UNLEAVENED BREAD, that is to say 3 days later.
There is proof in the Holy Biblical Scriptures that YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH rose from the dead on FIRSTFRUITS and not the so-called Easter!!!
Why is this so significant?
Well, it has a lot to do with giving the best of the best to YAHUVEH ELOHIM!
In this teaching, we look at the relationship between The Feast of FIRSTFRUITS and The HOLY RAPTURE/HARVEST as they are prophetically very closely related.
Following YAH’S Calendar is so useful to mankind most especially those who genuinely believe in and faithfully follow YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH because with in it, YAH has hidden so many secrets to understanding HIS WAYS and Divine Plans for us.
YAH’S Calendar always points to something that HE would like us to work on, work towards, etc.
I say “HOLY RAPTURE” because there will be a false one which will precede the HOLY RAPTURE. This has been revealed through YAH’S Amightywind Ministry.
Note that the Holy Rapture is referred to as The GREAT HARVEST by YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH! Matthew 24 and various other scriptures give more information about this.
Revelation 14:14-20 Names of God Bible (NOG)
14 Then I looked, and there was a white cloud, and on the cloud sat someone who was like the Son of Man. He had a gold crown on his head and a sharp sickle in his hand. 15 Another angel came out of the temple. He cried out in a loud voice to the one who sat on the cloud, “Swing your sickle, and gather the harvest. The time has come to gather it, because the harvest on the earth is overripe.”
16 The one who sat on the cloud swung his sickle over the earth, and the harvesting of the earth was completed.
17 Another angel came out of the temple in heaven. He, too, had a sharp sickle. 18 Yet another angel came from the altar with authority over fire. This angel called out in a loud voice to the angel with the sharp sickle, “Swing your sickle, and gather the bunches of grapes from the vine of the earth, because those grapes are ripe.” 19 The angel swung his sickle on the earth and gathered the grapes from the vine of the earth. He threw them into the winepress of God’s anger. 20 The grapes were trampled in the winepress outside the city. Blood flowed out of the winepress as high as a horse’s bridle for 1,600 stadia.[a]
Matthew 25:1-14 Tree of Life Version (TLV)
Parable of the Ten Virgins
25 “Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. [a] 2 Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. 3 For when the foolish ones took their lamps, they took no oil with them. 4 But the wise ones took oil in jars along with their lamps.
5 “Now while the bridegroom was taking a long time, they all got drowsy and started falling asleep. 6 But in the middle of the night there was a shout, ‘Look, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ 7 Then all those virgins got up and trimmed their lamps. 8 Now the foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, since our lamps are going out.’ 9 But the wise ones replied, ‘No, there won’t be enough for us and for you. Instead, go to those who sell, and buy some for yourselves.’
10 “But while they were going off to buy, the bridegroom came. And those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast, and the door was shut. 11 Now later, the other virgins came, saying, ‘Sir, Sir, open up for us!’
12 “But he replied, ‘Amen, I tell you, I do not know you.’ 13 Therefore stay alert, for you know neither the day nor the hour.”
- YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH (a.k.a JESUS CHRIST/YESHUA) was crucified on the First Day of the Feast/Festival of UNLEAVENED BREAD (a time to remove leaven/sin/pride) from our lives, which is PESACH/PASSOVER.
- HE died three hours later on that very day and then buried by a man called Joseph (who by the way went into hiding after the burial) in time for the PESACH SEDER time.
- YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH stayed in the grave from the fourth day of the week (now known as Wednesday) evening to the seventh day of the week (now known as Saturday) evening.
- YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH rose from the dead or resurrected on the Feast/Festival of FirstFruits which was 3 days later.
It has been revealed by YAH/ELOHIM (a.k.a GOD) through HIS Amightwind Ministry that YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH will return on a Shabbat/Sabbath to catch away HIS beloved Bride and Guests who have made themselves ready for HIM to the Heavens so as to escape YAH’S Judgement, that is to say the Great Tribulation. We know not which one!
YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH was the FIRST FRUIT of death as HE conquered Satan, Sin and Death! HE arose on the Festival of FirstFruits.
Just as YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH was and still is YAH’S very FirstFruit, so will HIS Beloved Bride of Revelation 14 be from among the peoples of the earth. Those who have already passed will also be called forth to join YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH at HIS future Wedding/Marriage Feast/Supper.
You should desire to be a FIRSTFRUIT from the earth! In order to do so, there are some steps you need to take. Our teaching called “BRIDE or Church of YAHUSHUA?” will give more information to you on this.
Matthew 24 Names of God Bible (NOG)
Jesus Teaches His Disciples on the Mount of Olives
The Destruction of the Temple and Signs of the End Times
24 As Yeshua left the temple courtyard and was walking away, his disciples came to him. They proudly pointed out to him the temple buildings. 2 Yeshua said to them, “You see all these buildings, don’t you? I can guarantee this truth: Not one of these stones will be left on top of another. Each one will be torn down.”
3 As Yeshua was sitting on the Mount of Olives, his disciples came to him privately and said, “Tell us, when will this happen? What will be the sign that you are coming again, and when will the world come to an end?”
4 Yeshua answered them, “Be careful not to let anyone deceive you. 5 Many will come using my name. They will say, ‘I am the Messiah,’ and they will deceive many people.
6 “You will hear of wars and rumors of wars. Don’t be alarmed! These things must happen, but they don’t mean that the end has come. 7 Nation will fight against nation and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8 All of these are only the beginning pains of the end.
9 “Then they will hand you over to those who will torture and kill you. All nations will hate you because you are committed to me. 10 Then many will lose faith. They will betray and hate each other. 11 Many false prophets will appear and deceive many people. 12 And because there will be more and more lawlessness, most people’s love will grow cold. 13 But the person who endures to the end will be saved.
14 “This Good News about the kingdom will be spread throughout the world as a testimony to all nations. Then the end will come.
15 “The prophet Daniel said that the disgusting thing that will cause destruction will stand in the holy place. When you see this (let the reader take note), 16 those of you in Judea should flee to the mountains. 17 Those who are on the roof should not come down to get anything out of their houses. 18 Those who are in the field should not turn back to get their coats.
19 “How horrible it will be for the women who are pregnant or who are nursing babies in those days. 20 Pray that it will not be winter or a day of worship when you flee. 21 There will be a lot of misery at that time, a kind of misery that has not happened from the beginning of the world until now and will certainly never happen again. 22 If God does not reduce the number of those days, no one will be saved. But those days will be reduced because of those whom God has chosen.
23 “At that time don’t believe anyone who tells you, ‘Here is the Messiah!’ or ‘There he is!’ 24 False messiahs and false prophets will appear. They will work spectacular, miraculous signs and do wonderful things to deceive, if possible, even those whom God has chosen. 25 Listen! I’ve told you this before it happens. 26 So if someone tells you, ‘He’s in the desert!’ don’t go out looking for him. And don’t believe anyone who says, ‘He’s in a secret place!’ 27 The Son of Man will come again just as lightning flashes from east to west. 28 Vultures will gather wherever there is a dead body.
29 “Immediately after the misery of those days, the sun will turn dark, the moon will not give light, the stars will fall from the sky, and the powers of the universe will be shaken.
30 “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in the sky. All the people on earth will cry in agony when they see the Son of Man coming on the clouds in the sky with power and great glory. 31 He will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and from every direction under the sky, they will gather those whom God has chosen.
32 “Learn from the story of the fig tree. When its branch becomes tender and it sprouts leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 In the same way, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, at the door.
34 “I can guarantee this truth: This generation will not disappear until all these things take place. 35 The earth and the heavens will disappear, but my words will never disappear.
No One Knows When the Son of Man Will Return
36 “No one knows when that day or hour will come. Even the angels in heaven and the Son don’t know. Only the Father knows.
37 “When the Son of Man comes again, it will be exactly like the days of Noah. 38 In the days before the flood, people were eating, drinking, and getting married until the day that Noah went into the ship. 39 They were not aware of what was happening until the flood came and swept all of them away. That is how it will be when the Son of Man comes again.
40 “At that time two men will be working in the field. One will be taken, and the other one will be left. 41 Two women will be working at a mill. One will be taken, and the other one will be left.
42 “Therefore, be alert, because you don’t know on what day your Lord will return. 43 You realize that if a homeowner had known at what time of the night a thief was coming, he would have stayed awake. He would not have let the thief break into his house. 44 Therefore, you, too, must be ready because the Son of Man will return when you least expect him.
45 “Who, then, is the faithful and wise servant? The master will put that person in charge of giving the other servants their food at the right time. 46 That servant will be blessed if his master finds him doing this job when he comes. 47 I can guarantee this truth: He will put that servant in charge of all his property. 48 On the other hand, that servant, if he is wicked, may think that it will be a long time before his master comes. 49 The servant may begin to beat the other servants and eat and drink with the drunks. 50 His master will return unexpectedly. 51 Then his master will severely punish him and assign him a place with the hypocrites. People will cry and be in extreme pain there.
The sun is going down in Scotland on Sunday 1st April 2018. I know it has already gone down in some parts of the world.
As Easter is coming to an end, The Feast of FIRSTFRUITS is about to start here and has already started in other parts of the world.
YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH rose again from the dead as the FIRSTFRUIT!
YAHUSHUA’S Resurrection was a FIRSTFRUIT OFFERING unto HIS ABBA, YAHUVEH (a.k.a YAHWEH)!!!
You too can be YAH’S First Fruit in the not so distant future. All those Wise Bride/Virgins who will be raptured/harvested at the beginning of the Great Tribulation are considered to be the First Fruits after YAHUSHUA (Revelation 14; Matthew 25:1-14.
Praise YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH who is the RESURRECTION AND THE LIFE!!! Through HIM, we receive life and new birth. We are no longer spiritually dead!
