Feast of Firstfruits

 

untitled

  • Held two days after Passover.
  • Represents all the harvest
  • Promise of all the harvest
  • An offering acknowledging all comes from God
  • Represents first-fruits of covenant life with God (full harvest at end)
  • We are the first-fruits (James 1:18)
  • Christ is the first-fruits (I Cor.15:20,23)
  • All is dedicated to God (as in saying grace before meals)
  • We are only able to dedicate ourselves because Christ was sown into death and offered as first and best, then waved himself before the Father at resurrection (which was on the feast of first-fruits)
  • We rejoice, as Israel did, in all our blessings of grace in Christ.
