As we are nearing the Feast of Harvest & Dedication (in Hebrew: Shavuot), also known as Pentecost we are excited to reflect on its prophetic meaning and why God chose those appointed times to reveal Himself to His people.
Isn’t it amazing to realize that it isn’t a random act that God chose specifically Shavuot to pour out His Spirit on the first believers. It was also the time he chose to introduce Evangelism and Mission work to the church. It all had to do with Shavuot being the time of harvest.
The Lord gave such importance to harvest that he mentioned it in the context of His parable about the kingdom of God being like a mustard seed.
The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field.
Though it is the smallest of all seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.
The gospel must go out and we must preach the kingdom of heaven, so that little mustard seed is planted into the field of men’s hearts, knowing that if we are faithful in our calling to spread the knowledge of God’s kingdom, He will give us the harvest.
Which is why we take our calling to evangelize very seriously. It is a blessing and an opportunity to plant the seed of God’s kingdom and see it grow into a mighty harvest, especially during this harvest season of Shavuot.
I will no longer hide my face from them, for I will pour out my Spirit on the people of Israel, declares the Sovereign LORD.
This upcoming Shavuot we will host a special evangelism campaign and preach the gospel to hundreds of people that have never heard it.
During the very days when God poured out His Spirit on the inhabitants of Jerusalem, launching the great commission through the birth of evangelism, we will reach many Israelis with Yeshua’s message of salvation.
We would like to invite you and/or your church to partner with us in this rare opportunity to share the Gospel with hundreds of Israelis during a single event this Pentecost feast.
Beit Hallel is a Messianic Jewish congregation in Ashdod, led by pastor Israel Pochtar, serving holocaust survivors and the poor and needy locally and throughout the nation of Israel, while building up the body of Messiah in the promised land of Israel.
