Day 49: A Gift That Keeps On Giving
You Can’t Out Give God
You have made an amazing spiritual journey!
As instructed by Leviticus 23:15-16, you have counted a total of seven weeks of Sabbaths in preparation for the power of Pentecost (Shavuot). Tomorrow, the day of Pentecost, the 50th day, will fully come — and with it comes an amazing “Jubilee” opportunity.
It’s connected to the Lord’s miracle promise in Malachi 3 to open the windows of Heaven and to pour out such a blessing there will not be room enough to contain it all.
The ancient teachings link Malachi 3 with the sowing of a special offering known as “First Fruits.” This is what’s described as the “offering of old” that we present to the Lord three times a year: Passover, Pentecost and Sukkot, the Feast of Tabernacles. (Deuteronomy 16:16) Each of these biblical holidays are appointed times for a miracle harvest.
Proverbs 3:9-10 describes this incredible promise. “Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; So your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine.” This speaks of spiritual and financial abundance coming your way.
The Pentecost seed brings a harvest of wisdom, symbolized by God giving Israel the Bible. It brings a harvest of anointing which is represented by God giving us the Holy Spirit.
It’s also the appointed time for prosperity. Which is promised when we plant a First Fruits offering. Ancient wisdom calls this “an offering with no limits.” Tiz and I are praying that you will receive this outpouring of God’s blessing in your life, so great you won’t be able to contain it all!
Today’s Prayer: Father God, thank You for bringing me on this incredible spiritual journey. As I get ready to sow my Pentecost first fruits offering, I’m looking forward to an outpouring of wisdom, anointing and prosperity. Let it come to me according to Your Word: good measure, pressed down, shaken together and overflowing! I receive it all with thanksgiving and praise. In the mighty name of Jesus! Amen.
