Shavuot and the Returning of Mashiach Yeshua!
Daniel ben Ya'acov Ysrael
I know many will say: How can you say that Yeshua will come back at Shavuot when everybody believe that he will come back on the seventh month the day that no man knows!
First of all I don't know who is evrybody,
Secondly I don't walk after the majority
Third only scriptures count
Let us look at some and may be gain a conclusion:                                                 

Mat 24:3  And as He (Yehoshua) sat on the Mount of Olives, the taught ones came to Him separately, saying, “Say to us, when shall this be, and what is the SIGN OF YOUR COMING, AND THE END OF THE AGE?”
Mat 24:4  And יהושע answering, said to them, “Take heed that no one leads you astray.
Yeshua tells his disciples all what shall come before his coming:
Mat 24:30  “And then the sign of the Son of Aḏam shall appear in the heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth shall mourn, and they shall see the Son of Aḏam coming on the clouds of the heaven with power and much esteem.
Mat 24:31  “And He shall send His messengers with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together His chosen ones from the four winds, from one end of the heavens to the other.
Mat 24:32  “And learn this parable from the fig tree: When its branch has already become tender and puts forth leaves, you know that the summer is near.
Mat 24:33  “So you also, when you see all these, know that He is near, at the doors.
Mat 24:34  “Truly, I say to you, this generation shall by no means pass away until all this takes place.
Mat 24:35  “The heaven and the earth shall pass away, but My words shall by no means pass away.
Mat 24:36  “But concerning THAT DAY and HOUR NO ONE KNOWS, not even the messengers of the heavens, but My Father only.
Yeshua warned many times to watch and pray:
Mat 24:42  “Watch therefore, for you do not know what hour your Master is coming.
Yehsua keep going in the chapter to tell another parable directly connected to his return:
Mat 24:43  “And know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.
Mat 24:44  “Because of this, be ready too, for the Son of Aḏam is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him.
Mat 24:45  “Who then is a trustworthy and wise servant, whom his master set over his household, to give them food in season?
Mat 24:46  “Blessed is that servant whom his master, having come, shall find so doing.
Mat 24:47  “Truly, I say to you that he shall set him over all his possessions.
Mat 24:48  “But if that evil servant says in his heart, ‘My master is delaying his coming,’
Mat 24:49  and begins to beat his fellow servants, and to eat and drink with the drunkards,
Mat 24:50  the master of that servant shall come on a day when he does not expect it, and at an hour he does not know,
Mat 24:51  and shall cut him in two and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites – there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
UNFORTUNATELY, many think that because the chapter is closed that it is the end and that another "topic" comes. Yeshua didn't had any chapter in his speech, He was to explain something in the chapter 25 directly connected to chapter 24 as we are going to read:
Mat 25:1  “Then the reign of the heavens shall be compared to ten maidens who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom.
Mat 25:2  “And five of them were wise, and five foolish.
Mat 25:3  “Those who were foolish, having taken their lamps, took no oil with them,
Mat 25:4  but the wise took oil in their containers with their lamps.
Mat 25:5  “Now while the bridegroom took time, they all slumbered and slept.
Mat 25:6  “And at midnight a cry was heard, ‘See, the bridegroom is coming, go out to meet him!’
Mat 25:7  “Then all those maidens rose up and trimmed their lamps.
Mat 25:8  “And the foolish said to the wise, ‘Give us of your oil, because our lamps are going out.’
Mat 25:9  “But the wise answered, saying, ‘No, indeed, there would not be enough for us and you. Instead, go to those who sell, and buy for yourselves.’
Mat 25:10  “And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came, and those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast, and the door was shut.
Mat 25:11  “And later the other maidens also came, saying, ‘Master, Master, open up for us!’
Mat 25:12  “But he answering, said, ‘Truly, I say to you, I do not know you.’
25:13 connect DIRECTLY to chapter 24:36,42,44.
In Judaism it is tradition the night of SHAVUOT to spend the all night reading the Torah (book of Ruth) and others scriptures, WAITING FOR THE RETURN of MASCHIACH.
- Yehudah and Ephraim (Naomi and Ruth)
- Redemption according to the law of the Kinsman redeemer
- The Timing is SHAVUOT the End of the Wheat Harvest.
In this Book we glean knowledge about Barley and Wheat also.
Have you spend the night watching? (Myself I felt asleep arounf 3.30 am) :), the spirit is willing, the flesh is weak. Hope to do better next year.
Now let us go further.
Exo 19:9  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “See, I am coming to you in the thick cloud, so that the people hear when I speak with you, and believe you forever.” And Mosheh reported the words of the people to יהוה.
Exo 19:10  And יהוה said to Mosheh, “Go to the people and set them apart today and tomorrow. And they shall wash their garments,
Exo 19:11  and shall be prepared by the third day. For on the third day יהוה shall come down upon Mount Sinai before the eyes of all the people.
YHWH told Moshe to tell the people to prepare themselves for He will come down to the Mount on the third day, this was 50 DAYS after leaving Mitzrayim:
Exo 19:1  In the third month after the children of Yisra’ĕl had come out of the land of Mitsrayim, on this day they came to the Wilderness of Sinai.
The Children of Ysrael left Mitzaryim on the 15 of the first month, so we can conclude that the came at Mount Siani on the THRID Month (19:1) after at least 46 days (you can count), the month been already started, we put 3 days as YHWH commanded we come to 49, and on the 50th YHWH will come down.
Now let us compare with Shavuot after the departure of Yeshua:
Act 1:12  Then they went back to Yerushalayim from the Mount of Olives, which is near Yerushalayim, a Sabbath day’s journey.
Act 1:13  And when they came in, they went up into the upper room where they were staying: both Kĕpha and Yaʽaqoḇ and Yoḥanan and Andri, Philip and T’oma, Bartholomi and Mattithyahu, Yaʽaqoḇ the son of Alphai and Shimʽon the Zealot, and Yehuḏah the son of Yaʽaqoḇ.
Act 1:14  All these were continuing with one mind in prayer and supplication, with the women and Miryam the mother of יהושע, and with His brothers.
Why were the disciples together? May be like the Five wise virgins of the parable waiting ALL NIGHT the day of Shavuot??? This question is valide as they had already asked to Yeshua when the Kingdom will be retored.
Act 2:1  And when the Day of the Festival of Weeks had come, they were all with one mind in one place.
Act 2:2  And suddenly there came a sound from the heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting.
Act 2:3  And there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and settled on each one of them.
Act 2:4  And they were all filled with the Set-apart Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them to speak.
The sound and noise is a rminder of the days at Mount Sinai:
Exo 20:18  And all the people saw the thunders, the lightning flashes, the sound of the ram’s horn, and the mountain smoking. And the people saw it, and they trembled and stood at a distance,
Exo 20:19  and said to Mosheh, “You speak with us and we hear, but let not Elohim speak with us, lest we die.”
SHAVUOT the day of the FIRST FRUITS, the Feast of the WHEAT HARVEST:
Lev 23:16  ‘Until the morrow after the seventh Sabbath you count fifty days, then you shall bring a new grain offering to יהוה.
Lev 23:17  ‘Bring from your dwellings for a wave offering two loaves of bread, of two-tenths of an ĕphah of fine flour they are, baked with leaven, first-fruits to יהוה.
Yeshua makes references to the WHEAT:
Mat 13:24  Another parable He put before them, saying, “The reign of the heavens has become like a man who sowed good seed in his field,..................................Mat 13:29  “But he said, ‘No, lest while you gather up the darnel you also uproot the wheat with them.
Mat 13:30  ‘Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I shall say to the reapers, “First gather the darnel and bind them in bundles to burn them, but GATHER THE WHEAT INTO MY GRANARY.” ’ ”

A bit later Yeshua explain the parable:
Mat 13:36  Then, having sent the crowds away, יהושע went into the house. And His taught ones came to Him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the darnel of the field.”
Mat 13:37  And He answering, said to them, “He who is sowing the GOOD SEED is the Son of Aḏam,
Mat 13:38  and the field is the world. And the good seed, THESE ARE THE SONS OF THE REIGN, but the darnel are the sons of the wicked one,
YOCHANAN the IMMERSER spoke concerning the work of Yeshua:
Mat 3:11  “I indeed immerse you in water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to bear. He shall immerse you in the Set-apart Spirit and fire.
Mat 3:12  “His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He shall thoroughly cleanse His threshing-floor, and  GATHER HIS WHEAT INTO THE STOREHOUSE, but the chaff He shall burn with unquenchable fire.”
I think we can conclude that:
A) Yeshua coming was to gather the WHEAT, the sons of the Kingdom
B) That ALL hapen dduring the time of WHEAT HARVEST ending at SHAVUOT
C) The day that no man knows because in Ysrael the WHEAT HARVEST go on for almot 50 days, the climate been different in many region, the wheat do not ripen at the same time, so NO MAN KNOWS WHEN THE SON OF MAN will come.
By the way, I have explain in another midrash, why IT IS IMPOSSIBLE that the MINCHA (Grain offering) given by the Priest was made of BARLEY, but rahther of WHEAT, thus giving another perspective to Yeshua actions.
The sons of the Kingdom will be caught up at SHAVUOT to go the the diner of the mariage of the Lamb, and will come back with him on the Seventh month at YOM KIPPUR to judge the nations.
Yom Teruah is a day of ALARM to herald the soon coming of the KING.
To make things more clearly, we need to consider this points:
Joh 1:14  And the WORD BECAME FLESH and pitched His tent1 among us, and we saw His esteem, esteem as of an only brought-forth of a father, complete in favour and truth;
Isa 55:10  “For as the rain comes down, and the snow from the heavens, and do not return there, but water the earth, and make it bring forth and bud, and give seed to the sower and bread to the eater,
Isa 55:11  so is My Word that goes forth from My mouth – it does not return to Me empty, but shall do what I please, and shall certainly accomplish what I sent it for.
Yeshayahu doesn't make a mistake he speaks about THE WORD:
Rev 19:10  And I fell at his feet to worship him, but he said to me, “See, do not do it! I am your fellow servant, and of your brothers who possess the witness of יהושע. Worship Elohim! For the witness of יהושע is the spirit of prophecy.”
Rev 19:11  And I saw the heaven opened, and there was a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Trustworthy and True, and in righteousness He judges and fights.
Rev 19:12  And His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns, having a Name that had been written, which no one had perceived except Himself.
Rev 19:13  and having been dressed in a robe dipped in blood – and HIS NAME IS CALLED: The WORD of יהוה.
A) The TORAH (The very Word of YHWH) was given at SHAVUOT at Mount Sinai
B) The RUACH HAQODESH (the Mother of the Word) was pourred out on SHAVUOT on the followers of YESHUA
2Th 2:1  As to the coming of our Master יהושע Messiah and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, brothers,
2Th 2:2  not to become easily unsettled in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as if the day of יהוה has come.
Shaul gives more details:
1Th 5:1  Now, brothers, as to THE TIMES and the SEASONS, YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE WRITTEN to.
1Th 5:2  For you YOURSELVES KNWO VERY WELL that the day of יהוה comes as a thief in the night (Read Matt 24)..
1Th 5:3  For when they say, “Peace and safety!” then suddenly destruction comes upon them, as labour pains upon a pregnant woman, and they shall not escape.
1Th 5:4  But you, brothers, are not in darkness, so that this Day should overtake you as a thief.
1Th 5:5  For you are all sons of light and sons of the day. We are not of the night nor of darkness.
1Th 5:6  So, then, we SHOULD NOT SLEEP, AS OTHERS DO, BUT WE SHOULD WATCH AND SOBER 5sound like the Five wise Virgins).
1Th 5:7  For those who sleep, sleep at night, and those who get drunk are drunk at night.
1Th 5:8  But we who are of the day should be sober, putting on the breastplate of belief and love, and as a helmet the expectation of deliverance.
1Th 5:9  Because Elohim did not appoint us to wrath, but to obtain deliverance through our Master יהושע Messiah,
Mat 24:43  “And know this, that if the master of the house had known what hour the thief would come, he would have watched and not allowed his house to be broken into.
Mat 24:44  “Because of this, be ready too, for the Son of Aḏam is coming at an hour when you do not expect Him.
 Shalom Chaverim
