The Feast of Pentecost celebrates the giving of the Ten Commandments in the Old Testament and the Holy Spirit in the New Testament. This feast is to be filled with joy and thanksgiving for God’s bountiful blessings of the harvest. During the celebration of Pentecost, believers will bring the firstfruits of any financial income since the Passover. It is separate and in addition to your tithe. This offering is called the latter firstfruit offering and symbolizes our thanksgiving to God for providing the “latter” spring harvest. The Church Family will offer its latter firstfruits at the Pentecost Worship Celebrations on Wednesday, June 12 at 7PM as DUNAMIS: A NIGHT OF MIRACLES, HEALING AND DELIVERANCE.

Preparing for Pentecost (Feast of Weeks) 

Pentecost Celebration Activities
  • It is tradition to eat dairy products during Pentecost because the law was compared to milk and honey. When the Israelites were awaiting the arrival of their new commandments and were unsure as to what their new dietary laws would be, they ate only dairy products and vegetables.Eating cheesecake and blintzes is a particular favorite during this feast.
  • Decorate your home with flowers and greenery, which represent the latter spring harvest and theLaw as a “tree of life.”
  • Read the “Book of Acts” with your family.
  • Study Scriptures about the Holy Spirit. A few Scriptures are provided below.

I baptize you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit!” Mark 1:8 NLT 

The angel replied, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the baby born to you will be holy, and He will be called the Son of God.” Luke 1:35 NLT 

And the Holy Spirit descended on Him in the form of a dove. And a voice from heaven said, “You are my beloved Son, and I am fully pleased with You.” Luke 3:22 NLT 

“And now I will send the Holy Spirit, just as my Father promised. But stay here in the city until the Holy Spirit comes and fills you with power from heaven.” Luke 24:49 NLT
