First Fruits

First Fruits…

In Leviticus 23, God tells Israel that on the day after the Sabbath of Passover, they are to go out into the field and reap the Bikoreem, the first fruits, of their harvest.

So on that day, they would reap the first sheaf of the barley harvest and offer it to the Lord, the first fruits of blessings to come. Once it was offered, the great spring harvest could begin. It was called, Yom Ha Bikoreem, the Day of the First Fruit.

In 1 Corinthians 15, Paul speaks of the resurrection and calls Jesus the first fruits or, in Hebrew, the Bikoreem. It’s not an accident. For the day that Jesus rose from the dead was the Hebrew holy day called Yom Ha Bikoreem.

Jesus became the First Fruits of the new life on the actual Day of First Fruits. And so, the Resurrection is the Bikoreem, the beginning of life for all who receive the new birth.

Overcome today, and break through, for Yom Ha Bikoreem is just the beginning of a miracle that goes on and on in those who walk in its power.

Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops Proverbs 3:9

Jesus has given you the power to break through into the new – Use that power today to take a miraculous step out of the old.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
