Shavuot 2016

 The dates for Shavuot, (Pentecost) are June 12th and 13th, 2016.
Shavuot begins at sunset on Saturday June 11th and ends at sunset on Monday, June 13th, 2016.

The first Shavuot took place at Mount Sinai, in what is now Saudi Arabia. It is at this location that the Hebrew slaves of Egypt were called to be Yahweh’s people, Yahweh’s bride. After Yeshua’s rapture, his Ruach Ha’Kodesh was poured out upon his apostles and disciples on the same Biblical calendar date, sealing his bride. At Mount Sinai fire descended on the summit of the mountain. At Shavuot fire came to rest on each of the apostles. The Egyptian Hebrew slaves, today, are now called the Jews. The apostles and disciples are now called the Bride of Yeshua!

The Book of Ruth is read on Shavuot in both Jewish synagogues and Messianic churches. Shavuot is different than Pesach in that leavened bread is used: two loaves of braided breads are baked with yeast (hametz). The two loaves represent the Jews and Gentiles that make up the Bride of Yeshua, the true church.
