A New Grain Offering

Read the Bible in a year chronologically by reading Leviticus 22 and 23 today.
God began describing the feast of Pentecost, saying, “Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall offer a new grain offering to the LORD” (Leviticus 23:16).
This countdown began with the Passover. The Passover commemorated Israel’s deliverance from Egypt, but the day of Pentecost foreshadowed a new time of deliverance that was coming. It symbolized a new beginning. Therefore, the priests were to offer a new grain offering.
The new harvest was to be of the spirit, and with perfect timing, the new harvest happened on one glorious day when three thousand souls were saved from their sins. Acts chapter 2 shows this wonderful event. The new harvest has not stopped, but Lord continues to reap daily, those who are turning to Him.
