The Hidden Count To Pentecost

Setting The Record Straight

I will refrain from bashing the middle eastern religion spoken of in Revelation 17:5 which hails from The Babylonian Exile event of Judah, the literal source of all this confusion concerning the count to Pentecost. That said, just know that if you look to this religion of deception to explain scripture, you most certainly will be led astray. This subject is proof positive of that statement.

So, straight away, lets cut directly to the core of the matter, addressing the text in question. First, lets go precisely to the Hebrew Interlinear of this text in question.

“15 — And you shall count for yourself, from the day after the Sabbath, from the day after you brought the sheaf of the wave offering, seven Sabbaths complete shall be. 16 — Until the day after the Sabbath, the seventh, shall you number fifty days, then you shall offer a new grain offering to YHWH.” Leviticus 23:15–16 Hebrew Interlinear.

Now, let’s read it from a couple of quantified translations of The Bible.

15 — “You shall count seven full weeks from the day after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf of the wave offering. 16 — You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath. Then you shall present a grain offering of new grain to YHWH.” Leviticus 23:15–16 ESV


“15 — And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete: 16 — Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new meat offering unto YHWH.” Leviticus 23:15–16 King James Version

The ESV totally leaves out the words Until the day after the Sabbath, the seventh,” as compared to the Hebrew Interlinear. The KJV includes these all important words.

Here is a link to all the various ways this verse is translated, showing the confusion accordingly:

The key word in the entire command is the very first word in Leviticus 23:16. The word is translated “Unto” or “Until”. It is the Hebrew word “Ad” (H5704).

Teachable Moment: Whenever seeking a better understanding of any given text, always try to find the key word in that text, then address its true definition by going to the root(s) of the word. Then apply these root meanings back to the surface definition of the word in question to form a brand new definition. Then apply that unadulterated understanding to the text for the true meaning of the passage. This method will destroy all the mistranslations of scripture committed by the Judeo-Christian monks who have butchered YHWH’s word via one mistranSLAYtion after another.

In the case of the above key word from Leviticus 23:16, (H5704) “ad”, the word literally means, “to come to, pass by and continue on” with the next statement in the text. Thus with this understanding in place, we can know the command says for us to number seven Sabbaths, they shall be complete weeks. Then we are to come to the single day after the seventh Sabbath, then we are to continue on after that single day, to number 50 days. This makes the count to Pentecost a three part count.

1 — Number seven complete Sabbaths which is seven completed weeks, each with six work days and a weekly Sabbath following the six working days. A direct representation of the seven churches of Revelation chapters 2 and 3, what some call the church age, as the barley (the Church) is being made ready to harvest.

2 — Then we come to the all important single day, which holds great meaning in its typology. The gathering of the barley (The church). See 1Corinthians 15:50–52

3 — Then we are to number 50 days exclusive of the other two counts, which represents the Ezekiel 37:1–14 event being fulfilled when all Israel will have their opportunity at salvation (see verse 14). The number fifty being the number of Israel’s Jubilee, when liberty is proclaimed and the sons and daughters of Israel are placed back into their promised land (America), this time given THE INDWELLING of YHWH’s Spirit into the womb of their minds.

All three parts of this count toward the Day of Pentecost has great symbolic and prophetic meaning, if you have a good understanding of who and where the true nation of Israel is located and how it is identified. Sadly, way too many Believers are totally in the dark on this matter. The Enemy has so deceived Believers in Christ and YHWH into the false idea of Spiritual Israel, which teaches that the people of Israel are spread all over the world, void of any national tie to any given land… or that Israel was dispersed into various gentile nations, evaporating like a bad smell in the wind, lost to all modernity… But, with a glint in my eye, I digress, slightly, as I again go back to that despicable religion that has hijacked the name of Israel, created in Babylon that has originated all of this confusion.

Allow the following proofs from scripture that the Day of Pentecost does not fall in the third month of Spring, as Judaism and many of the churches teach.

1 — The Exodus 32:5 Statement Made By Aaron.

“When Aaron saw this, he built an altar before it. And Aaron made a proclamation and said, “Tomorrow shall be a feast to YHWH” Exodus 32:5

The backdrop is well known. Moses has been on the mountain for many days, leading up to his return on the 40th day since his departure. Israel commits great whoredom and idolatry via the golden calf event. Aaron is persuaded to make this idol of the pagan god Satyr, overlaid with gold. Simply put, his words show the sin.

Right Day, Wrong God.

The day is tied to YHWH. It is an appointed time of YHWH, being hijacked by the religion of Satyr, aka Saturn, aka Molech.

The word translated “Feast” in the above text is the Hebrew word “Chag” which is one the three footstep festivals of Unleavened Bread, Pentecost or Tabernacles, to use the English vernacular. A really good exercise is to question, which one of the three was Aaron speaking of. So, let’s go through this, quickly.

Was He speaking of the first day of Unleavened Bread? No way. This event took place long after the Exodus which occurred on that first day of Unleavened Bread.

Was Aaron speaking of the Feast of Tabernacles? Again, No way.

Fact is, a careful reading of the events in Exodus 19 through 24, added to the number of days Moses was on the Mountain the first time, 40 days, will allow any truth seeker to come to the true calendar moment Aaron stated, “Tomorrow is the Feast of YHWH”.

So, lets count it down, beginning with the words Moses records as Exodus 19 opens.

“In the third month, after the people of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt, on this same day they came into the wilderness of Sinai.” Exodus 19:1

So, what day is this text speaking of, specifically? Well, simple grammar will spell it out for you. Let’s diagram this sentence.

“In the third month” is a prepositional phrase denoting time.

“after the people of Israel had gone out of the land of Egypt” is an adverbial prepositional phrase describing when in the third month. “After” is the preposition. “The people of Israel” is the object of this preposition and the subject of the sentence structure. “Had gone out” is the verb of that prepositional clause. “Of the land of Egypt” is another prepositional phrase describing the place this event took place. This sentence can stand alone, but Moses added a secondary statement which must be taken in light of the first. In this second sentence, adding to the first, Moses writes:

on this same day they came into the wilderness of Sinai.”

“On this same day” is an adverbial prepositional phrase further describing when in the third month the children of Israel left Egypt. “They came” is the verb of the second sentence. “Into the wilderness of Sinai” is the prepositional subject matter.

The point being, the day of the month they left Egypt is the day of the third month that they came to Sinai. So, what day did Israel leave the boarders of Egypt?

The answer to that question is on the 16th of the first month.

“And the children of Israel removed from Rameses, and pitched in Succoth. And they departed from Succoth, and pitched in Etham, which is in the edge of the wilderness.” Numbers 33:5–6

Look on any map you want. The ancient city of Succoth is within the boarders of Egypt. The wilderness of Etham, Israel’s second stop is outside of Egypt’s boarders.

The 15th of Abib, Israel left Rameses located in Egypt.

The 16th of Abib, Israel crossed over the Egyptian boarder into the wilderness of Etham and camped a second night.

Conclusion… The day spoken of in Exodus 19:1 is the 16th day of the third month.

Later in chapter 19, Moses says this…

And YHWH said unto Moses, Go unto the people, and sanctify them to day and to morrow, and let them wash their clothes, And be ready against the third day: for the third day YHWH will come down in the sight of all the people upon mount Sinai.” Exodus 19:10–11

Today = The 16th

Tomorrow = The 17th

Against the third day = The 18th

The day YHWH gave His Covenant Law = The 19th of the third month.

Then the events of Exodus 20, 21, 22, 23 and verses 1 through 3 of chapter 24, all occurred on this 19th day of the third month.

Then the next morning, the 20th, the rest of the events of Exodus 24 took place.

“And Moses wrote all the words of YHWH, and ROSE UP EARLY THE NEXT MORNING, and built an altar under the hill, and twelve pillars, according to the twelve tribes of Israel.” Exodus 24:4

While there are time markers within this chapter, they do not interrupt the time Moses is on the Mountain from the 20th of the third month until 40 days pass.

Moses goes up from the Children of Israel on the 20th onto the Mountain. From the 20th until the end of the third month is 11 of the 40 days, leaving 29 more days. The 20th day of the third month is day one in that count.

Then, 29 days into the fourth month marks the moment in time, Moses comes down from the Mountain. So, let’s plug this information back into the story of Exodus 32…

“And he (Aaron) received them at their hand, and fashioned it with a graving tool, after he (Aaron) had made it a molten calf: and they said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And when Aaron saw it, he built an altar before it; and Aaron made proclamation, and said, (on 4–28) To morrow is a feast to YHWH. And they rose up early on the morrow (4–29), and offered burnt offerings, and brought peace offerings; and the people sat down to eat and to drink, and rose up to play.” Exodus 32:4–6

Then on the 40th day that Moses had gone up to the mountain… this same day (4–29), we read this:

“And YHWH said unto Moses, Go, get thee down; for thy people, which thou brought out of the land of Egypt, have corrupted themselves: They have turned aside quickly out of the way which I commanded them: they have made them a molten calf, and have worshipped it, and have sacrificed thereunto, and said, These be thy gods, O Israel, which have brought thee up out of the land of Egypt. And YHWH said unto Moses, I have seen this people, and, behold, it is a stiff necked people: Now therefore let me alone, that my wrath may wax hot against them, and that I may consume them: and I will make of thee a great nation.” Exodus 32:7–10

So, very clearly, this Feast (Chag) of YHWH that Aaron proclaimed having the correct day but the wrong god, took place not in the third month as the Jews will tell you, but rather on the last Sabbath of the fourth month, in the middle of the summer. Pentecost is a Summer festival. See Amos 8:1–4.

2 — The Proof Of The Hail In Egypt.

There are three fruits of the harvest used on the day of Pentecost. They are wheat, wine and oil. Two of these three are newly gathered fruits. the wheat and grapes to make “New Wine”. The subject of this proof is the newly harvested wheat. We will address the grapes to make new wine next.

Today, via the genetic modifications made by modern science, wheat comes in two forms.

1 — Summer Wheat, planted in late February, early March which comes harvestable in 110 to 120 days. Basically in early July.

2 — Winter Wheat, planted in the fall, where it has just enough light left to shoot up a 18" stalk before becoming dormant for the winter. Then when light returns in late February, it continues to grow and is harvestable in the third month.

Summer wheat is the type of wheat that was planted anciently. Winter Wheat is a genetically modified wheat designed to fit the Jewish model of Pentecost as well as fitting the more modern climate that had befallen the middle east in these last 2K years.

How do we know this? We know this from the story of the Plagues that YHWH brought upon Egypt before the Exodus. Specifically the plague of hail.

“And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: YHWH is righteous, and I and my people are wicked. Intreat YHWH (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and you shall stay no longer. And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto YHWH; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is YHWH’s. But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear The Sovereign YHWH. And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled. But THE WHEAT and the rie were NOT SMITTEN: for THEY WERE LATE CROPS.” Exodus 9:27–32

The plague of hail was the seventh of the ten and occurred in the winter to very early spring time. Long after the fall planting of so called winter wheat, which didn’t exist at that time, and would have had an 18"–24" shoot of grass above ground to be destroyed by the hail. Thus the type of wheat planted in ancient times was Summer Wheat, which isn't harvestable at the time The Jews believe is Pentecost, in the third month.

3– The New Wine On The Day of Pentecost In Acts chapter 2.

The harvest of grapes is another agricultural proof that Judaism failed to cover up in their theology. I’ve raised grapes. I’ve researched grapes in all areas of the world. Various types of grapes are harvested at various times. but no grapes are harvested before the beginning of the fourth month in most years. Most are much later into the late fourth and into the fifth month. While genetic modification makes it difficult to pin down today, anciently we do have one proof that we can hang our hat of theology upon.

Ask any wine maker that knows the process and I’m not talking about grape juice. New wine is the most potent wine made by man. The forced rotting process creates a rapid fermentation that will knock you on your keister. Some form of heat is added to the extraction process to produce New Wine, quickly turning it into alcohol, much like a moonshine steel. One caveat to the process. The grapes must be freshly harvested. You can’t make New Wine from old grapes. There is a chemical within newly harvested grapes called maceration enzymes which when heated give the New Wine its kick.

Yeshua gave us a clue as to just how strong this wine actually is via the following statement.

“And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. If he does, the wine will burst the skins — and the wine is destroyed, and so are the skins. But new wine is for fresh wineskins.” Mark 2:22

Now, lets take a look at Acts chapter 2:

“And when the day of Pentecost WAS FULLY COME, they were all with one accord in one place.” Acts 2:1

Later, after the miracle of the tongues of fire rested upon the 12, Luke records this statement, very much applicable to our study today.

“Others mocking said, These men are full of new wine.” Acts 2:13

How could there be New Wine, freshly harvested from a third month harvest which otherwise does not exist.

While there are other proofs directly from scripture and nature which show when the day of Pentecost is and when it is not… But these three witnesses should suffice to any truth seeker.

May The Almighty bless you in your studies of His word.
