Sunday June 8 is Pentecost, the fourth of the seven Feasts of the LORD 
Tomorrow is Pentecost Sunday in the Christian church. But Pentecost has been around a lot longer than Christianity (Tweet that!), as we've been learning over these past two weeks on this blog.

On the Hebrew calendar tomorrow, Pentecost, is the 50th day of counting the omer (the sheaf). (Tweet that!

Shavuot Eve begins today. Tomorrow is the first day of Shavuot. Monday is the second day of Shavuot.

According to the teaching of Mark Biltz, who has taught me so much through his interviews and DVD set on the Feasts of the LORD, the forty-nine days counting from the Feast of Firstfruits (back near Easter) to the Feast of Weeks, which is Pentecost, in Israel is a time of spiritual introspection. (Tweet that!

I love that God gave us holidays. To stop. To remember what He has done. And to give us reason to look inward to consider the state of our souls.  (Tweet that!) We would each do well to regularly take such an observance.

I hope you have learned a lot about Pentecost through these posts. I also hope you will think about the spiritual significance of this fourth of the seven Feasts of the LORD tomorrow. (Tweet that!) Thank you for joining me. Enjoy your Pentecost.
