Then YHVH spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons of Israel and say to them, ‘When you enter the land which I am going to give to you and reap its harvest, then you shall bring in the sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest. He shall wave the sheaf before YHVH for you to be accepted; on the day after the Shabbat the priest shall wave it. Leviticus 23:10-11
Shalom and a Blessed Feast of Matza- Unleavened Bread to all!
This being the Year of Yovel (Jubilee) it makes it mandatory to understand the commandments that relate to normal years and to the Year of Jubilee, commandments that are connected with the harvest. Since both the Shmita Year and the Year of Yovel are years when no sowing, reaping and pruning is allowed, how are we to relate to the tithes and the first fruits? Moreover how are we to relate to it in the 21st Century in a non -agricultural society?
I believe that this is exactly what Paul meant when he said:
Who also made us sufficient as ministers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life. 2 Corinthians 3:6 NKJV
All the laws of Yah (God) are His Word and we are to relate to them with seriousness however we need to correctly interpret them for them to profit us today. This is what Paul meant when he said to Timothy:
All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness. 2 Timothy 3:16
All Scripture includes the Five Books of the Blueprint, which people call The Five Books of Moses. These are not the Books of Moses, they are the instructions YHVH gave to Moshe, Israel’s Deliverer to give to the Sons of Israel (including the Daughters!) and to the sojourners, or the Gentiles that join them.
The same law shall apply to the native as to the stranger who sojourns among you.” Exodus 12:49
All the Torah- Instructions-Laws of YHVH are His Word. Some of them we cannot obey today literally because they are in context, or they are for that certain season. However the SPIRIT of the Commandment lives on! That is why the Letter of the Law kills but the Spirit gives LIFE! Because if we relate to the letter without taking into consideration the context, the season and the historical setting, we can wrongly interpret laws and commandments and bring bondage instead of freedom. Yeshua brought the freedom of walking in intimacy with Him, rightly dividing the Word of Truth! The Word of Truth includes the First Five Books of the Bible and all the laws and Commandments of Elohim! But we need to rightly divide it and we need to be careful not to become dogmatic, rigid, religious or LAX (both ends!) so it can profit us for us to walk in righteousness! ALL Scripture should profit us so we can walk in righteousness which is in the Right Way! The Holy Spirit coupled with historical knowledge assists us in rightly interpreting His Word!
Should we be concerned to apply His Commandments to our life today? What a question! His Word is Eternal and it is the Most Precious Possession we have! It is more important than gold or diamonds and all riches of the earth! Just like miners risk their lives to mine gold or diamonds because it is so valuable, we should be willing to lose our lives in order to find the “nuggets” that are buried in Yah’s word! Always remembering that the Letter of the Law kills but the Spirit gives life!
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant seeking beautiful pearls, who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it. Matthew 13:45-46 NKJV
Are you ready to delve into the true meaning of the First Fruits sacrifice?
The Feast of First Fruit happens after the Shabbat. If Passover happens on Wednesday (4th Day of the Week) then the Feast of First Fruits would happen on Saturday evening after the Shabbat is over. Please remember that the Biblical Day always starts in the evening as described in Genesis 1. The purpose was to bring the first fruits of grain to the Priest so that the rest of the crops would be blessed. This was to be the FIRST of the First Fruits of the year as the Biblical Year starts in the month of Aviv (Called Nissan as well).
This is the month of Passover which is the First Feast of the Biblical Calendar Cycle. (See Leviticus 23). So the Month of Aviv, is a month of FIRSTS:
- First Month of the Biblical Calendar Cycle
- Passover on the 14th Day of Aviv is the FIRST Feast of the Holy Feast Calendar
- First fruits that occurs after the Passover during the Feast of Matza (Unleavened Bread) is the FIRST of all the First fruit sacrifices/offerings that are required.
Yeshua was raised from the dead on the Feast of First Fruits that falls within the Passover week and He indeed rose from the dead on the 3rd Day at the end of the weekly Shabbat. He was crucified on the 4th Day (Wednesday), then the Feast Day came and 3 days later, (Saturday sun set) he was raised from the dead as the FIRST fruits of the resurrection on the Feast of First Fruits.
But now Messiah has been raised from the dead, the first fruits of those who have fallen asleep.1 Corinthians 15:20
I personally believe that He was crucified, buried and resurrected on a Year of Jubilee. The Year of Jubilee is the Year of RELEASE of debts and slaves, is the Year of Redemption of lands that had been lost and people that had been enslaved (See Leviticus 25). In order to fulfill all righteousness He had to do all according to the Biblical Pattern. He also made the Jubilee proclamation when He preached in the synagogue in Nazareth. He said that this was the Year of YHVH’s Favor which is synonym to the Year of Jubilee.
THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME, BECAUSE HE HAS ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE GOSPEL TO THE POOR; HE HAS SENT ME TO HEAL THE BROKENHEARTED, TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES AND RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET AT LIBERTY THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED. TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OR THE LORD. Luke 4:18-9
He declared: Now this Scripture is fulfilled in your eyes!
Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him. And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing. Luke 4:20-21
This would mean that Yeshua was the Pessach Sacrificial Lamb that was offered as FIRST FRUITS of the Resurrection during the Feast of FIRST FRUITS of the Year of Jubilee!
He was the most potent First Fruits Offerings ever offered during the Feast of First Fruits! He was a COMPLETE SACRIFICE. He was not a partial sacrifice but He completely offered Himself in order to bring forth the full force of the Jubilee Promise:
RELEASE FROM DEBT AND SLAVERY and RETURN to the Original Inheritance Elohim gave Israel and ultimately ADAM!
And you shall consecrate the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land to all its inhabitants. It shall be a Jubilee for you; and each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you shall return to his family. Leviticus 25:10
What was the outcome of this Extravagant First Fruit Offering? The RELEASE of Mankind from our debt to the Almighty and complete Freedom from the slavery to sin. The total redemption of all human beings wherever they would be! The multiplication of this seed is LIMITLESS! Yeshua keeps on being multiplied inside of the hearts of all those who receive Him and surrender to Him. The Harvest of Yeshua as THE FIRST FRUITS offering of the Jubilee, the Year of YHVH’s Favor has been ongoing for about 2000 years and it will never stop!
How are we to relate to the Feast of First fruits today if Yeshua did it all? As I said before the Commandments of the Father are eternal but we need to know them in context. I am not in agriculture, neither are most of you therefore I need to seek for the Spirit of the Commandment!
Yeshua gave Himself as the sacrifice and as the First Fruits Offering during the Year of Jubilee. How are we to follow?
By doing exactly the same! By presenting ourselves before YHVH as a First Fruits Offering.
I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. Romans 12:1
As we do that He will accept us and will bless us as He blessed Yeshua when after He suffered, He was exalted! It is only those who abase themselves and surrender themselves to Adonai that can be elevated and exalted! The Year of Jubilee presents us with the opportunity of following in the footsteps of our Master in presenting ourselves, our possessions, our plans, our desires and all that we are as a First Fruits to YHVH.
And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name. Philippians 2:8-9
Then once the Year of Jubilee is over we can start a new 50 Year Cycle in a completely new place where we have never been before. A new place of Blessing, Power and Authority in order to be fruitful and multiply disciples just as Elohim commanded Adam and reiterated it through Yeshua when He said,
Go and make disciples of all nations!
The First Fruits of the Year of Jubilee is the most Potent Offering you can ever give and therefore we must be careful to offer all that He requires! If not we will miss the opportunity of endless harvest and multiplication! This is true about our lives as it is true of our possessions!
What is He requiring of you to give this Year of Jubilee? Remember that in order to have a RESURRECTION there has to be a death and a burial first. First a SEED needs to be put in the ground where it disappears from sight and then as it is buried, one day it springs forth, it rises from the dead and as the First Fruits are offered, the rest of its harvest will be blessed! It is the same in our lives and the same in our giving. However this being the Year of Jubilee, it is not a normal sowing or a normal harvest, it is a SUPERNATURAL occurrence. It happens in the spiritual realm and at the speed of light. That is why Yeshua’s death, burial and resurrection took only 3 days!
In the same way as we offer ourselves as the Jubilee-First Fruits offering, and all that we are and have to our Great High Priest, He will accept us and release His Favor upon our lives in the biggest dimension possible! And our Harvest will be endless!
A FIRSTFRUITS JUBILEE PRAYER
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying: “Whom shall I send, and who will go for Us?” Then I said, “Here am I! Send me.” Isaiah 6:8
Abba father HINENI, here I am to do Your will and to offer myself as Your special First fruits Jubilee Offering during this Your Feast and this month of Aviv, to follow in the footsteps of Your Son Yeshua and my Messiah, who gave Himself totally to You! I give myself, all that I am and all that I have to You as a Living Sacrifice. Please accept me as the First Fruits Offering and release Your Favor upon my life that I can bring forth MUCH fruit for Your Glory, so my harvest will be ENDLESS! Amen!
I am here to say with the Prophet Isaiah:
HINENI – Here I am send me, use me, be glorified through me! In Yeshua’s Mighty name. Amen!
