The Engagement - Shav置ot

 

Physical to Spiritual Parallel of Shav置ot

In all of the physical shadows, we see Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering leading up to Shav置ot. We see Israel leaving Egyptian slavery:

         Offering the Passover Lamb

         Mikveh壇 as a nation in the Red Sea

         Circumcised at the foot of Mt. Sinai as they said 的 will and I do to the marriage vows (the Law)

We see the importance of Shav置ot all the way back in the days of Noah. Just after Yahuah had Mikveh壇 the Earth clean of sin and unrighteousness, through a global flood, we see Noah on 鍍he Mountain offer a male lamb on the altar on the 3rd day of the 3rd Month (Shav置ot) to make atonement for Earth back to Yahuah. We see that 典he Law was well known to Noah, as the Law was given to him orally in detail, as is demonstrated by the detail of his offering:

Jubilee Chapter 6 The Rainbow the sign of Shav置ot
1 And on the new moon of the third month (Shav置ot) he went forth from the ark, and built an altar on 2 that mountain. And he made atonement for the Earth, and took a kid (male goat/lamb) and made atonement by its blood for all the guilt of the Earth; for everything that had been on it had been destroyed (through global Mikveh), save 3 those that were in the ark with Noah. 11 Yahuah Elohim (made this oath to keep Shav置ot) forever throughout all the generations of the Earth in this (the 3rd) month. On this account he spake to thee that thou shouldst make a covenant (on Shav置ot) with the children of Israel in this month upon the mountain with an oath (exactly like what happened on Mt. Sinai in the Abrahamic Covenant) 12 of the covenant, which Yahuah made with them forever. And this testimony is written concerning you that you should observe it continually 14 may it be before Yahuah our Elohim continually. And for this law there is no limit of days, for it is forever. They shall observe it throughout their generations, so that they may continue supplicating on your behalf with blood before the altar; every day and at the time of morning and evening they shall seek forgiveness on your behalf perpetually before Yahuah that they may keep 15 it and not be rooted out. And He gave to Noah and his sons a sign that there should not again 16 be a flood on the Earth. He set his bow in the cloud for a sign of the eternal covenant that there 17 should not again be a flood on the Earth to destroy it all the days of the Earth. For this reason, it is ordained and written on the heavenly tablets (the Mazzaroth/The Heavenly Scroll), that they should celebrate the Feast of Weeks in this 18 month once a year, to renew the covenant every year.

What is the true meaning of Shav置ot? In Christianity it is called Pentecost, but the meaning is lost all together as it is not taught in conjunction with the Spring Feasts of Passover and Unleavened Bread. In Judaism it is taught only in light of the physical shadow of Yahuah giving the Torah to Moses. In the Messianic and Nazarene assemblies, we celebrate both the giving of the Torah to Moses and the outpouring of the Spirit of Holiness on what is called Pentecost or Shav置ot. But is there even more to Shav置ot than we realize?

We are going take a look at this most important appointed 電ate with our Creator, which is a Moedim (or rehearsal), and we are going to reveal the true meaning of Shav置ot as it applies to us today within the context of The Renewed Covenant.

1.      I am going to show where Shav置ot fits in within the Feast Cycle. You see, the Spring Feasts picture the Bride being betrothed to the Groom and then the Fall Feasts picture the 努edding supper or public celebration of the wedding that took place in the Spring Feasts. I値l explain this marriage covenant and where Shav置ot fits into the annual portrait of a wedding.

2.      I am going to demonstrate how Shav置ot is the inauguration of 典he Renewed Covenant.

3.      I am going to show how Shav置ot is the fulfillment of the transposition of The Law. I値l explain how The Law existed in 4 states and underwent 3 transfers of position (transpositions) over time through progressive revelation (where Yahuah progressively revealed his Law through covenants).

4.      I will show how the spring feast cycle is a portrait of the marriage, whereby we become ONE with Yahuah through Mikveh, circumcision, and bringing an offering to our Husband as his Bride.

5.      I will Show how Yahusha elevated the physical requirements to become one with Yahuah (being Mikveh壇, circumcised, and brought at offering showing us 鍍he way). Fulfilling the physical shadow of saying our wedding vows on Shav置ot 50 days after offering himself as the First Fruits.

 

 

The Engagement

Each feast in the Appointed Times or Holy Days of Yahuah are a 杜oedim, which means rehearsal as the wedding covenant between Yahuah and His chosen is revealed and rehearsed each year. Each Feast is an appointed time or a 電ate if you will between the Bride and her husband. In the Fall and Spring Feasts we see a portrait of a wedding as the Bride (the called out ones) enters into the covenant of marriage with her husband Yahusha to become one family (as sons of Yahuah). The Spring Feasts are where the Bride and her husband are betrothed or engaged to each other and where the commitment to the vows is made. The Fall Feasts are the Wedding Supper and celebration of that engagement.

Let me quickly express the true meaning of the Passover Season, and illustrate that process whereby we become betrothed or engaged to our beloved and joined as one family with our Father through covenant by the process of Mikveh, Circumcision, and bringing an Offering. Covenants in Scripture are likened to Marriage Covenants where those who enter into covenant become 登ne in mind, will, purpose, and family joined together by blood (The Ruach).

John 17:19-21
"And for their sakes I sanctify Myself (through the Truth of Scripture), that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me (enter into The Yahushaic Covenant) through their word; That they all may be one (with me through Marriage the Bride/Groom); as thou, Father, art in (covenant with) me, and I in (covenant with) thee, that they also may be one in (covenant with) us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me."

Each Passover is the Preparation Day of the Bride the Passover Day begins with a rehearsal dinner (that has come to be known as The Last Supper), where leavened bread is eaten to signify the sacrifice of the Bride and Groom痴 past life. This meal is where the called out ones remember the meaning of the upcoming marriage, and discuss upcoming events we must do in the wedding. Much like the rehearsal dinner in today痴 weddings. We keeping alive the memory of the Messiah, and the example he set of Mikveh, Circumcision, and Offering. We express our desire to follow that same example in the coming days. We see Sha置l teach this:

1 Corinthians 11
23
For I received from the King what I also passed on to you: Yahusha the Messiah, on the night he was betrayed, took leavened bread,
24 and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, 典his (Chagigah meal or rehearsal dinner) is My body, which is for you; do this (keep this rehearsal dinner) in remembrance of me (the example I am setting). 25 In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, 典his cup is the renewed covenant in My blood; do this (keep the rehearsal dinner), whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me (the example I am setting). 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink from this cup (each year in rehearsal for Passover), you proclaim the King痴 death (and the example he set) until he comes.

During this rehearsal dinner, we enter into covenant with Yahusha to become part of his Bride, and remember the example he set on Passover as a loving Husband who gave his life for his Bride.

Ephesians 5
25 Husbands, love your wives, just as the Messiah loved the body and gave himself up for her (as the Passover Lamb) 26 to make her holy, (ritually) cleansing her by the washing with water through the commandments (Mikveh), 27 and to present her (properly) to himself as a radiant assembly, without spot or wrinkle or any other blemish (as spotless Passover Lambs of Yahuah), but holy and blameless.

We see in John Chapter 13, on Passover, Yahusha tell us that he has just given us an example that we are to follow as he Mikveh壇 the feet of his disciples signifying they are to follow him in those footsteps on Passover. So what is this 兎xample Yahusha set, that we are to follow each Passover? We see the Messiah set this example Yahusha brought an offering of a lamb on Passover. He offered his own broken body as a living sacrifice to Yahuah. This is the way, the example, that Yahusha set that we are to follow each Passover. We are all to:

1.      Mikveh our bodies ritually clean with Living Water.

2.      Circumcise our hearts or 塗ave a heart for his laws and do his will not our own.

3.      Offer our lives as living sacrifices on the altar of Yahuah which is our hearts.

We see in John Chapter 17 after Yahusha had set the righteous example of Mikveh, circumcision, and was offering his life to our Father to consummate the marriage covenant, Yahusha expresses the marriage covenant as we all become 登ne family with Yahuah:

John 17:19-21 Yahusha prayed to Yahuah on our behalf
"
17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world (as prophesied in The Heavenly and Earthly Scrolls), so I have sent them into the world. 19 And for their sake I dedicate Myself to you through covenant, that they also may be set apart as My Bride in truth. 20 的 do not ask for these only, but also for those who will enter into this marriage covenant with me through their testimony, 21 that they may all be one family, just as you, Father, are in covenant with me, and I in covenant with you, that they also may be in covenant with us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 The glory that you have given me as your son, I have given to My brothers, that they may be one in covenant even as we are one family, 23 I in covenant with them and you in covenant with me, that they may become perfectly one with us in your family.

So, let痴 get back to the engagement portrayed in the Spring Feasts. Once the Bride has sacrificed the sinful flesh of her past life, eating leavened bread on the Chagigah/rehearsal dinner. She then prepares her body through Mikveh (ritually cleansing her body). Once she has properly prepared her body to cleanse of all sin, and offered her spotless body to her husband as a living sacrifice, then the Bride and Groom celebrate for 7 days on the Feast of Unleavened Bread. Unleavened bread is eaten signifying the perfected body united with the Yahusha in marriage.

Now we come to the Festival of First Fruits leading up to Shav置ot. Shav置ot is the day the wedding vows are spoken and the Bride and Groom commit to marriage. Shav置ot is the celebration of the wedding vows (the giving of the Law).

The Heavenly Engagement Ring

Shav'uot is the celebration of the engagement between The Messiah and his Bride-to-be. The "rainbow" is a sign for Shav'uot (in addition to a promise not to flood the Earth). What is a Rainbow? It is THE sign of the covenant made on the mountain on Shav'uot! It is "The Heavenly Engagement Ring"! We see below it is "written in the Heavenly Tablets" i.e. The Heavenly Scroll:

Jubilee Chapter 6 ---- The Sign of Shav置ot
1 And on the new moon of the third month (Shav置ot) he went forth from the ark, and built an altar on 2 that mountain. And he made atonement for the earth, and took a kid (male goat/lamb) and made atonement by its blood for all the guilt of the earth; for everything that had been on it had been destroyed (through global Mikveh), save 3 those that were in the ark with Noah. 11 Yahuah Elohim (made this oath to keep Shav置ot) for ever throughout all the generations of the earth in this (the 3rd) month. On this account He spake to thee that thou shouldst make a covenant (on Shav置ot) with the children of Israel in this month upon the mountain with an oath (exactly like what happened on Mt. Sinai in the Abrahamic Covenant) 12 of the covenant, which Yahuah made with them for ever. And this testimony is written concerning you that you should observe it continually 14 may be before Yahuah our Elohim continually. And for this law there is no limit of days, for it is for ever. They shall observe it throughout their generations, so that they may continue supplicating on your behalf with blood before the altar; every day and at the time of morning and evening they shall seek forgiveness on your behalf perpetually before Yahuah that they may keep 15 it and not be rooted out. And He gave to Noah and his sons a sign that there should not again 16 be a flood on the earth. HE SET HIS RAINBOW IN THE CLOUDS FOR A SIGN OF THE ETERNAL COVENANT OF SHAV'UOT that there 17 should not again be a flood on the earth to destroy it all the days of the earth. For this reason it is ordained and written on the heavenly tablets (The Heavenly Scroll), that they should celebrate the feast of weeks in this 18 month once a year, to renew the covenant every year.

 

 

 

Shav置ot - The Giving of the Law

First let me explain how Yahuah discloses vital aspects of His Kingdom to mankind. In disclosing His plan of salvation written in The Heavenly Scroll, then written on the Earthly Scroll, then finally written on the Fleshly Scroll (our hearts), Yahuah follows a very specific pattern. We read of this pattern in Isaiah 48:3:

Isaiah 48
3
I foretold the former things long ago (written in the stars at creation), My mouth (then) announced them (to My prophets) and then I made them known (through physical shadows so that we can understand them); then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass (spiritually in His Kingdom).

This is called the process of progressive revelation. The plan was written in the stars at creation, then revealed through the mouth of His Prophets, then established physically as a shadow to study and rehearse, then finally transposed into the Kingdom of Yahuah.

With this process in mind, we are going to look at the progressive revelation of the Law over time as it was transposed from the mind of Yahuah, to oral tradition, to written in stone, and finally into the hearts of His Sons.  Shav置ot is the final fulfillment of the process whereby the Law was progressively revealed over time and transposed from the mind of Yahuah into the hearts of His Sons. Many of us believe (or have been taught) that the Law came into existence 430 years AFTER the promise was made to Abraham (as stated by Sha置l in Galatians 3:17), as if the Law did not exist before that time. We only celebrate the giving of the Law to Moses on Shav置ot.

We fail to celebrate the reality that Yahuah痴 Holiness defined by His Law is eternal! Our celebration on Shav置ot should go further than simply the 堵iving of the Law in written form to Moses. I want to clearly address this issue, because the righteousness of Yahuah (defined by HHis Law) did not 田ome about with Moses, it was simply written down, or transposed, from orally being passed down to written in stone in the Mosaic Covenant. Shav置ot is the literal fulfillment of transposition from written in stone to written on our hearts! Sha置l was not saying the Law was introduced 430 years later, he was saying the written law in detail was introduced in stone. As a Torah expert, the Apostle Sha置l knew Noah celebrated Shav置ot and demonstrated knowledge of the Law (as I pointed out earlier in the book of Jubilee Chapter 6). Sha置l was well aware that Abraham was given the law in all its aspects orally:

Gen 26:5 Abrahamic Covenant where the Law was given orally
5 Because that Abraham obeyed My voice (oral transposition), and kept My charge, My commandments, My ordained times, and My laws.

So we see the Law given orally in The Abrahamic Covenant. What we haven稚 been taught is that the Law is eternal and has always existed even back to Adam! The Apostle Sha置l clearly teaches that all the way back to Adam the Law was alive and active all of it. Yahuah (through progressive revelation over time) had not yet fully communicated His Holy Law to man orally. The Law existed first in the mind of Yahuah. The entire Holy Law was still active at the creation of man, and the penalty for disobedience (which is DEATH) was imputed or charged to every man who violated any part of it. The fact that death existed from Adam to Moses, is proof the entire Law of Yahuah was eternally active.

Let痴 look at what Sha置l says in Romans 5:12-14, and that many died for various offenses not related to what Adam did, was proof that the Holy Law of Yahuah was a complex set of Laws and eternally valid and active. Mankind (at the time of Adam) simply was not completely aware of what the Law contained. But Yahuah's Holiness was the same at the time of Adam, as it was at the time of Abraham, Moses, David, Yahusha, and you and I today. And that Holiness is defined by his holy law. The Apostle Sha置l addresses the reality of the Law from Adam to Moses. First let me just show the verse in question:

Romans 5:12-14
12
Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned
13 To be sure, sin was in the world before the law was given, but sin is not charged against anyone痴 account where there is no law. 14 Nevertheless, death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as Adam did.

What does all that mean? What is Sha置l really saying? Let me break it down in context to clearly demonstrate what Sha置l is talking about, and we will see that the entire Law existed first in the mind of Yahuah and slowly transposed over time to man orally:

Romans 5
12
Therefore, just as through one man sin (sin is disobedience to The Law 1 John 3:4) entered the world (Adam disobeyed Yahuah痴 commands bringing sin into the world), and death through sin (the Law of Sin and You Die), and thus death spread to all men (as death is the penalty of sin which is breaking the Law.), because all man sinned. 13 To be sure, sin (breaking the Law) was in the world before the (written) law was given (to Moses), but sin (breaking the Law) is not charged against anyone痴 account where there is no law. (so the fact that sin was in the world before the written law is proof the Law existed all the way back to Adam because death is the penalty of breaking the law)

 

NOTE: Keep all of Sha置l痴 writings in context; Sha置l is proving that because there was transgression since Adam that the Law was alive and active. Because if the Law did not exist, there would be no transgressions and no death.

Romans 4:15 - Because the law works wrath (death for disobedience): for where there is not Law there is no transgressions

Continuing with Romans 5
(so Sha置l is saying there must have been the Law at the time of Adam because there was transgression)
14 Nevertheless (now Sha置l says death is the proof of the Law), death reigned from the time of Adam to the time of Moses, (and DEATH is the penalty of 都in or breaking the Law. So transgression and death is PROOF the Law existed from Adam to Moses) even over those who did not sin by breaking a command, as did Adam (The Law was a lot more complex than anyone knew because people were dying for all types of sin not just 兎ating the apple).

So, we see that the Law existed in the mind of Yahuah all the way back to Adam, they simply were not aware of what all the Law required. Mankind was still held to account for the Law from Adam to Moses as made evident by transgressions and death. Death being the penalty of transgressing the Law reigned from Adam to Moses, and therefore is proof The Law of Yahuah is eternal both past and future.

Mankind was in the initial stages of progressive disclosure. But rest assured, the Law still governed Yahuah痴 Creation, and death was still the penalty for violating it, and sin was still being charged against EVERYONE who transgressed any part of His Holy Law. That is what Sha置l is saying. I needed to bring this to our attention because The False Religion of Christianity teaches us that Sha置l said the Law came into existence 430 years after the Abrahamic Covenant. The false teachers point us to

Galatians 3
17 The law, introduced 430 years later, does not set aside the covenant previously established by Yahuah and thus do away with the promise.
18 For if the inheritance depends on the law, then it no longer depends on the promise; but Yahuah in His Grace gave it to Abraham through a promise.

Well, 妬f Sha置l actually said what Christianity teaches he said; he wasn稚 much of a Pharisee, and expert in The Torah. Why? Because not only did Sha置l say the Law existed at creation in the mind of Yahuah (as I have just shown), but Sha置l knew Abraham was given the Law orally in detail!

Gen 26:5
5 Because that Abraham obeyed My voice (Law orally given), and kept My charge, My commandments, My ordinances, and My laws.

So, we see the entire Law was given to Abraham orally. Every aspect of the Law; including the 10 commandments, the ordinances or ordained times, and the laws such as ritual purity, sacrificial etc. So below, let me put what Sha置l said in Galatians back into context:

Galatians 3
17 The written law, introduced 430 years later after the law was given orally, does not set aside the covenant of promise previously established by Yahuah with Abraham and thus do away with the promise.
18 For if the inheritance depends on the Law, then it no longer depends on the promise; but Yahuah in His Grace gave it to Abraham through a promise (not that the Law didn稚 exist with Abraham; it is that the inheritance was based on a promise. Sha置l is simply confronting the Pharisees contention that the promise was based on legalistic adherence to the Law).

You see, the Law went through a process of transposition which means transfer of position. The Law actually existed, and was revealed through progressive disclosure as it went through 4 states and 3 transfers of position or transpositions over time. The Law existed first in the mind of Yahuah (the first state) with Adam thru Abraham then was transposed orally (second state) from Abraham to Moses and then was transposed to written down (third state) from Moses to Yahusha, and finally the Law was transposed to written on our hearts (the fourth state) as the vows were renewed in the kingdom of Yahuah. So, the Law existed in 4 states (mind, oral, letter, and intent) and transposed 3 times:

         Abrahamic Covenant where it went from mind of Yahuah to given orally

         Mosaic Covenant where it went from orally given to the letter written in stone

         Yahushaic Covenant where it went from letter to Intent written on our hearts

So let痴 look a little closer at these 3 transfers of position of The Law as we come to an understanding of what Shav置ot truly is celebrating.

 

First Transposition of Law
From the mind of Yahuah to oral tradition

Now we know the Law was alive and active all the way back to Adam. We clearly see below the Law was communicated verbally to our forefathers and defined the 鍍erms and conditions of every covenant long before the covenant with Moses. Each covenant between Yahuah and His Sons are literally marriage covenants and the Law defines the marriage vows. As I stated in the Abrahamic Covenant The Law of Yahuah was transposed from the Mind of Yahuah to our forefathers verbally as we read below 鄭braham obeyed My voice and kept The Law of Yahuah:

Gen 26:5 Abrahamic Covenant
5 Because that Abraham obeyed My voice (Yahuah communicated the Law verbally transposing it from His Mind to oral tradition), and kept My charge, My commandments, My ordained times, and My laws.

We see in Psalms that The Law of Yahuah was passed down orally to Jacob through his father Isaac who received the Law from Abraham who received it from Yahuah痴 voice:

Ps 147
19 Yahuah showed His Word (the Law) unto Jacob, His Statutes and His Judgments (the Law) unto Israel.

 

Second Transposition of the Law
The Law was transposed from oral to written down in the Mosaic Covenant

In the Mosaic Covenant, The Law was transposed from oral tradition to written in stone. Let me clearly establish that the Commandments of Yahuah are eternal to Israel (His Chosen Sons) - the bloodline of Abraham/Isaac/Jacob. They are for "all time" (eternal past, present, and future), they are an everlasting covenant, forever.

Deut. 4

39 Acknowledge and take to heart this day that Yahuah is God in heaven above and on the Earth below. There is no other. 40 Keep His decrees and commands, which I am giving you today, so that it may go well with you and your children after you (perpetual no end) and that you may live long (eternal life - physical to spiritual parallel) in the land Yahuah your God gives you (The Promised Land - Kingdom of Yahuah - physical to spiritual parallel) for all time (eternal permanent ordinances).

Isaiah declares that it is the disobedience to The Laws of Yahuah, the violation of these statutes, and the breaking of the EVERLASTING covenant (which is The Sabbath Covenant), the Earth is defiled and falls under a curse and is utterly destroyed at the end.

Isaiah 24 - Yahuah痴 Devastation of the Earth
1
See, Yahuah is going to lay waste the Earth and devastate it; he will ruin its face and scatter its inhabitants.. 3 The Earth will be completely laid waste and totally plundered. Yahuah has spoken this word. 4 The Earth dries up and withers, the world languishes and withers, the heavens languish with the Earth. 5 The Earth is defiled by its people; they have disobeyed the laws of Yahuah, violated the statutes (the ordained times) and broken the everlasting covenant (The Sabbath). 6 Therefore (because we have abolished His Law and changed His Sabbath to Sunday) a curse consumes the Earth; its people must bear their guilt. Therefore Earth痴 inhabitants are burned up, and very few are left.

I don稚 know about you, but as for me and My house we will study His Law and keep His Ordained Times. I, for one, want to enter His Kingdom and be one of the 砺ery few left after Yahuah purges the Earth of those who deny his Law. I don稚 want to be told 電epart from me you law breaker by Yahusha and I don稚 want to be rounded up and kicked out of the kingdom for disobedience!

Matthew 13:41
The Son of Man will send His Angels, and they will gather out of His Kingdom all causes of sin and all law-breakers

When you understand that the Law is the governing constitution of The Kingdom of Yahuah and literally the marriage vows of His covenants, you realize only those who have it 努ritten on their hearts will be qualified to govern. If you truly love Yahuah, that love is demonstrated by keeping His Law:

1 John 5:3
In fact, this is love for Yahuah: to keep His Commands out of love. And His Commands are not burdensome to you.

Only those with a 塗eart for His Law (circumcision) and lovingly keep the marriage vows will be found trustworthy of eternal life. Yahuah simply will not put up with a bunch of lawless unfaithful eternal beings running around trying to govern the Universe in unrighteousness! Those who abolish the Law (Law breakers) will not make it past the 堵atekeeper Yahusha. They will be told 電epart from me, I know you not, you who practice disobedience to the Law.

 

Third Transposition of The Law
The Law was transposed from written to spiritual intent in The Yahushaic Covenant

Once the Law was gradually introduced to man over time orally from Adam thru Abraham, then written in stone in detail in the Mosaic Covenant, it was then transposed to spiritual intent in The Yahushaic Covenant. Sha置l was well aware of this fact:

Hebrews 10:16 Sha置l quotes Jeremiah 31
This is the covenant I will make with them after that time, says Yahuah. I will put My laws in their hearts, and I will write them on their minds. (Yahuah will circumcise our hearts!)

Yahusha痴 primary mission was to fulfill (transpose) The Law of Yahuah, especially as it related to the Spring Feasts of Passover/Unleavened Bread/First Fruits/Shavuot.

Matthew 5
17 泥o not think that I have come to abolish the Law (Torah) or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to bring them to their fullest (bring them to intent through transposition).

Ezekiel prophesied the same transposition of The Law in the Renewed Covenant:

Ezekiel 36: 26, 27
I will give you a new heart (for My Law and write My Law on it Jeremiah 31) and put a new spirit (of loving obedience) in you; I will remove from you your heart of stone (legalistic observance of the Law without love) and give you a (circumcised) heart of flesh. And I will put My Spirit in you and move you to follow My decrees and be careful to keep My laws.

It is very important that we understand all 4 states and the 3 transfers of position, because I am going to explain the true meaning of Shav置ot in the Renewed Covenant.

We, on Shav置ot, should celebrate the progressive revelation of the Law/Wedding Vows as Yahuah disclose them over time through covenants. We should look back at the physical shadow of Israel bringing a Passover offering in Egypt, then Mikveh壇 in the Red Sea crossing, and finally circumcised on Shav置ot at the foot of Mt. Sinai. Setting the example of Mikveh, circumcision, and offering.  We should follow the example Yahusha set on Passover demonstrating that Mikveh, circumcision, and offering is required to be joined to Yahuah in covenant of marriage.

 

 

Commitment to the Vows

Shav置ot is the commitment to the wedding vows as Yahuah circumcised the 塗earts of His Chosen Few on Shav置ot, pouring out His Spirit within us, and writing the Law on our hearts. Shav置ot is literally the inauguration of The Renewed Covenant or 鍍he renewal of our wedding vows.  Yahuah promised that he would pour out His Blessing on the descendants of Abraham in a future eternal covenant. Speaking of this renewed covenant to come, Yahuah said through Isaiah, again, demonstrating Mikveh, circumcision, and offering is The Way, the Narrow Path to salvation:

Isaiah 44

For I will pour water on the thirsty land, and streams on the dry ground (to Mikveh for forgiveness of sin and uncleanliness again we see in the Renewed Covenant the importance of Mikveh);

 

Zechariah 13:1

的n that day (speaking of the Renewed Covenant) there shall be a fountain (of Living Water) opened to the house of David and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem (to Mikveh) for sin and for uncleanness. I will pour My Spirit upon your offspring (and per Jeremiah 31 write My law on their hearts circumcising our hearts so we see Mikveh and circumcision), and My blessing (of eternal life) on your descendants. They shall spring up among the nations like grass like willows by flowing streams. This one will say, 選 am Yahuah痴, another will call on the name of Jacob, and another will write/tattoo on his hand, 塑ahuah痴, and name himself by the name of Israel.

We see Yahuah also 鍍attoos on his hand our names. Later in that same book of Isaiah:

Isaiah 49:16
See, I have engraved/tattooed you (your name) on the palms of My hands

 

Yahuah also promised (concerning this renewed covenant) that we would be Mikveh壇, drawing Living Water from the wells of salvation (speaking of the Yahushaic Covenant).

Isaiah 12
You will say in that day (that I renew My vows): 的 will give thanks to you, O Yahuah, for though you were angry with me (for breaking your vows and divorced me), your anger turned away (and you restored me as your Bride), that you might comfort me. Behold, Yahuah is My salvation (this statement is literally naming the Covenant of Yahusha by name. Yahusha is a contraction of Yahuah Yasha and means 添ahuah is My salvation. So we can replace that longer form with the contraction and we get behold, Yahusha! Pointing us directly to our Messiah);  I will trust, and will not be afraid; for Yahuah My Elohim is My strength and My song, and he has become My salvation (in the Yahushaic Covenant or 典he Salvation of Yahuah covenant). (in that covenant) With joy you will draw Living Water (and be Mikveh壇) from the wells of salvation. And you will say in that day (that I renewed My vows and restored you as a Bride for My son which is Shav置ot): 敵ive thanks to Yahuah, call upon His Name, make known His Deeds among the peoples, proclaim that His Name is exalted. 鉄ing praises to Yahuah, for He has done gloriously (and fulfilled his promises); let this (renewed wedding between the son and his new Bride) be made known in all the Earth (preach the gospel to all nations). Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.

 

This is our declaration on Shav置ot! We celebrate, as the marriage was renewed and the promises fulfilled to pour out His Spirit and write the vows on our hearts. Shav置ot is the fulfillment where Yahuah promised He would renew His Covenant Vows by writing them on our hearts.


Speaking of this renewed covenant:

Jeremiah 31
31 
典he days are coming, declares Yahuah,
when I will make a renewed marriage covenant with the people of Israel and with the people of Judah (chose a new Bride called Remnant Israel). 32 It will not be like the marriage covenant I made with their ancestors (the Bride and Groom will be different) when I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt, because they (the old Bride) broke My marriage covenant, though I was a husband to them, declares Yahuah. 33 (How is it different?) 典his is the renewed marriage covenant I will make with the (remnant) people of Israel (the New Bride) after that time, declares Yahuah. 的 will (circumcise them by) putting My law in their minds and write it on their hearts (instead of written in stone). I will be their God (Father), and they will be My people (children).

Yahuah promised to pour out His Spirit of Holiness and cause us to keep His vows and obey His commandments as Shav置ot is also the fulfillment of that promise.

Ezekiel 36
22典herefore say to the Israelites, 禅his is what the sovereign Yahuah says: It is not for your sake, people of Israel, that I am going to do these things, but for the sake of My holy name, which you have profaned among the nations where you have gone (as you forgot My name through Ba誕l worship). 23 I will show the Holiness of My great name, which has been profaned among the nations, the name you have profaned among them (changing My name to The LORD). Then the nations will know that I am Yahuah, declares the Sovereign King, when I am proved holy through you before their eyes. 24 詮or I will take you (a New Bride) out of the nations (a remnant); I will gather you from all the countries and bring you back into your own land. 25 I will (prepare you as a Bride for My son by) sprinkle clean water on you (to Mikveh you clean of your sin), and you will be clean (without sin before me); I will cleanse you from all your impurities and from all your idols (through Mikveh). 26 I will give you a new circumcised heart and put a new spirit of loving obedience in you; I will remove from you your (rebellious) heart of stone and give you a (soft) heart of flesh. 27 And I will put My Spirit of Holiness in you and move you to renew My vows (with My son), follow My decrees (as your Father) and be careful to keep My laws.

Shav置ot is the fulfillment of the prophecies in Jeremiah and Isaiah and Ezekiel. So Shav置ot is the celebration of the beginning of the Renewed Covenant and the literal fulfillment of Yahuah痴 promises to renew His Vows and restore His Bride. And it is the final transposition of the Law to 妬ntent.

 

So Shav置ot is more than just 鍍he giving of The Torah to Moses, more than just 鍍he outpouring of the Spirit of Holiness賠 Shav置ot is literally where the wedding vows were renewed as the New Bride of the Messiah!

 

Physical to Spiritual Parallels

As I stated earlier, Yahuah has a very well defined pattern whereby he progressively discloses his truths to humanity. Let痴 look as Yahuah proclaimed through Isaiah:

Isaiah 48 I値l put this in context of revelation of the Law/marriage vows
3
I foretold the former things long ago (written in the stars at creation), My mouth announced (My vows orally to Abraham) and I made them known (written in stone to Moses); then suddenly I acted, and they came to pass (written on our hearts with Yahusha on Shav置ot).

 

So, let us celebrate Shav置ot as The Marriage Covenant was renewed on this Holy Day celebration and the former things prophesied in the heavens, that were announced orally to Abraham, then made known in stone to Moses, and then written on our hearts with Yahusha has been fulfilled! Shav置ot is one of 3 major pilgrimages and Chagigah or remembrance meals. It is when Israel would Mikveh themselves before coming into the presence of Yahuah as a Bride prepares herself to meet her husband at the appointed time to renew the wedding vows. Shav'uot is the celebration of the Law or marriage vows. The final transposition of the Law to intent. Shav'uot is the celebration of the inauguration of The Renewed Covenant! Shav置ot is the fulfillment of promises spoken of in Jeremiah 31 and Ezekiel 26 where Yahuah would bring His Law to its final state in the kingdom of Yahuah.
