Exodus 3:11-13 And Yahuweh spake unto Moses, saying, 12 And I, behold, I have taken the Levites from among the children of Israel instead of all the firstborn that openeth the matrix among the children of Israel: therefore the Levites shall be mine; 13 Because all the firstborn are mine; for on the day that I smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt I hallowed unto Me all the firstborn in Israel, both man and beast: mine shall they be: I am Yahuweh.
Exodus 8:17; Exodus 18:6c to do the service of the tabernacle of the congregation.
Jeremiah 2:3 Israel was (KJV) is (Hebrew Scriptures) holiness unto Yahuweh, and the firstfruits of His increase: all that devour him shall offend; evil shall come upon them, saith Yahuweh.
James 1:18 Of His own will begat He us with the word of truth, that we should be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.
We see by God’s promise to Moses that the Levites were the firstfruits, holy and had the service for the tabernacle of the congregation. James says we are a kind similar in duty as the Levites. They were commanded to be holy as we are.
Exodus 19:5-6; I Peter 1:13-25; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
Hebrews 12:22-24 But ye are come unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, 23 To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven, (Malachi 3:16-18) and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, 24 And to Yahushua the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaketh better things than that of Abel.
We as believers want to be in that group of the firstborn, firstfruits. We can’t do it by ourselves. Yahushua has given us His Holy Spirit in power. We merely need to recognize our need and cry out to the Father in Yahushua’s name and the Holy Spirit will cleanse us of all unrighteousness by the blood of Yahushua. How many times a day will He grant forgiveness? As many as you ask. We have to humble ourselves before Him. We must die to ourselves daily. Time is short! Continue in patience trusting Him who said “I will never leave you nor forsake you” Pray for one another, love one another, as He loves you.
Father let your glory be seen in our lives, let your reverence reign in our hearts. Have us as Your jewels. As You spare the firstborn son who serves You.
Halle lu YAH
Definition: Firstfruits #536 Strong’s a) parxh; compound: #575 and #756
- to offer firstlings or firstfruits
- to take away the firstfruits of the productions of the earth which was offered to God. The first portion of dough, from which sacred loaves were to be prepared. Hence term used of persons consecrated to God for all time.
- persons superior in excellence to others of the same class (Malachi 3:16-18)
These persons, superior in excellence to others of the same class, are the warnings to the seven churches, ten virgins, wise and foolish servants, and many other parables and scriptures which indicate the intent of the heart which God looks at. This is not to say these others are not saved, but are walking in the cares of this life and not watching for the life to come.
Some of these will cry out in the Day of Jesus Christ (pre-trib. Rapture) Lord, Lord we have done many wonderful works in your name. He will say I do not know you the way you are now.
You have teachings on all these scriptures which I paraphrased.
This is not a condemnation that these people are not saved, but are not walking in truth of the word. They are committing sins unto death and unless they use His blood to cleans themselves they will be left behind.
I know some of you may disagree with this teaching but you can not explain God’s warnings and His righteousness. Don’t give me we are all saved by grace which is true but does not excuse Christians walking forwardly and how God deals with us.
Father see us as little children, washed by the blood, cleansed. Holy Spirit guide us unto all truth. May we all humble ourselves to each other and to You Father, serving one another in love and truth. In Yahushua’s name we pray. Halle lu YAH
