without comments

RICHARD: Well Pentecost is one of the Feasts of the Lord, and in every Christians’ favorite book of the Bible. Leviticus [laughs], you know.

LARRY:
[laughing] Yeah; yeah, yeah, yeah.


RICHARD:
But I really. that’s. actually the Book of Leviticus is the mother lode of the Gospel in what Christians call the Old Testament!

LARRY:
Yeah.

RICHARD:
If they could get past their fear of these old rituals, the Hebrew Bible is a picture of a person!


LARRY:
Mm.


RICHARD:
So you’re looking for. you’re looking to find the person in the pictures.


LARRY:
Yeah.


RICHARD:
And so  the festivals of the Lord are really summarized in Leviticus, chapter 23. But anyway the point is these are feasts of the Lord.


LARRY:
Yes.


RICHARD:
that He gave to the Jewish people, but for all of God’s covenant people to.


LARRY:
Mm.


RICHARD:
. to celebrate and enjoy for all time. So they’re actually pictures of a person. The Hebrew word, moadim; means a special, set apart time, to meet with God!


LARRY:
Wow.


RICHARD:
Well so that’s what they are. Back in the 70s, long before most people (laughing)

who are alive today.


LARRY:
(laughing)


RICHARD:
you know, we had this wonderful move of God.


LARRY:
Yeah.


RICHARD:
and we. we. we couldn’t get enough of Jesus.


LARRY:
Yeah.


RICHARD:
So we would. we would invent meetings and organize things, just so we could sit around together and praise the Lord all day.


LARRY:
Yeah.


RICHARD:
all day; we called them Jesus fests.


LARRY:
Yeah.


RICHARD:
Jesus festivals. The feasts of the Lord, Larry, are Jesus festivals!


LARRY:
Yeah, that’s good.


RICHARD:
Hallelujah!


LARRY:
Yeah.


RICHARD:
(laughing)

That’s what they are!


LARRY:
Yeah; yeah.


RICHARD:
So, but it began long before Acts, all the way back in the Book of Exodus!


LARRY:
Wow.


RICHARD:
God came down upon Mount Sinai in the Bible, people know this story. And the mountain shook, you know, and quaking.


LARRY:
Yes.


RICHARD:
and the fire of God in the smoke! Man, can you imagine being there? And the people ran to the foot of the mountain to see all this, what’s going on, and God spoke to the people. But people who are Bible students might remember, coming out of Egypt, it says it was a mixed multitude.


LARRY:
Yeah.


RICHARD:
So there was all kinds of people coming out of Egypt. It was the ancient superpower of the world.


LARRY:
Yeah.


RICHARD:
so a lot of people came out with the Hebrews, and they spoke all kind of languages. So how is God going to say something to these people.


LARRY:
Wow.


RICHARD:
where they can all hear the same thing?


LARRY:
Yeah.


RICHARD:
So the Jewish sages have always taught for centuries that when God spoke the Commandments to the people, Larry, He spoke to them out of the mountain in tongues of fire, and they saw and heard the words coming to them in their own languages! Isn’t that amazing!


LARRY:
(claps)

That’s amazing.


RICHARD:
Wow!


LARRY:
I mean that’s like a prophetic picture though.


RICHARD:
It is!


LARRY:
of what we see fulfilled at Pentecost!


RICHARD:
It is. it’s exactly! So they rushed to the mountain; they heard God speak in these [laughing] tongues of fire, in their own languages. Then Moses got up and gave his sermons, but it was kind of a disappointment b-because they had been worshipping this golden calf.


LARRY:
Yeah; yeah.


RICHARD:
and 3,000 people died.


LARRY:
Wow.


RICHARD:
in the–


LARRY:
Oh.


RICHARD:
in the presence of the fire of God. But God spoke all of this, and put it on stone tablets.


LARRY:
Yes.


RICHARD:
It was a picture. So, now what happened, Larry, is the Prophets said there’s going to come a time in history when God, Who wrote those those Laws on the stone tablets, is going to write them on the fleshly tablets of people’s hearts.


LARRY:
(claps)

Yes; yeah.


RICHARD:
Hallelujah! And come inside of us, and upon us, and surround us!


LARRY:
Yes.


RICHARD:
And we’d be enveloped in. in the fire, and power, and Spirit of God!


LARRY:
Yeah.


RICHARD:
So every year they’d come back to Jerusalem. They’re supposed to come very year. After Passover they’d go home; then they’d come back 50 days later, and that’s what Pentecost means, you know.


LARRY:
Yes.


RICHARD:
And they’d. they’d say, Maybe this would be the year!


LARRY:
Yeah.


RICHARD:
And they’d go home, disappointed.


LARRY:
Wow.


RICHARD:
Come back the next year, Maybe this would be the year!


LARRY:
Mm.
