The Jewish festival of Shavuot is more commonly known as Pentecost and takes place 7 weeks (50 days) after Passover. Jesus was resurrected from the dead on Passover and 50 days later the promise and power of the Holy Spirit came upon the early Church at Pentecost (Acts 2).
Although the Christian Church celebrates the day of Pentecost this coming Sunday, the actual Jewish holiday is from sundown on May 30 through sundown on June 1. This is a week of revelation and power that is now flowing to you from Heaven.
Pentecost signifies the wheat harvest in Israel and the celebration of God giving the Torah to Moses on Mount Sinai. During Pentecost, we will begin to reap what we have sown (wheat harvest) and God will give us words as He did for the Israelites when giving the Torah. Pentecost is also the day that the power of the Holy Spirit came upon us. This is a season of joy, power and revelation!
“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. You have enlarged the nation and increased their joy; they rejoice before you as people rejoice at the harvest, as warriors rejoice when dividing the plunder.” Isaiah 9:2–3 NIV
I had an encounter with the Lord on Pentecost, May 31, 2017.
The Lord said, “It is Pentecost and I am releasing revelation and power to my people who have suffered. For the next seven weeks, new joy is going to come and replace your suffering (from now through July 19). This is the time of the harvest in Israel. In the same way, you are going to reap a harvest for things you have sown in past seasons. At the end of seven weeks, you will look back and say, ‘I am in a new place.’ I am going to move in unusual ways and through circumstances that you might not understand at first. But stand on this word that I’m giving right now. In seven weeks, things are going to look different and new joy is going to overcome you.”
As the Lord spoke this, I was shown a new gate beginning to open in the spiritual realm. The name on the gate is “Joy.”
Over the next 7 weeks, there is an open heaven for revelation and the release of God’s power. You can expect to receive repayment for the attacks of the enemy. God is now breaking the clouds of darkness and bringing people out of the wilderness. We are now entering into a new season of joy and God’s light is going to shine on you in a new way.
