What is the meaning of “Pentecost”? Breaking the word down, it means “count fifty.” We count fifty days from “the morrow after the Sabbath –which is the day after the weekly Sabbath that occurs during the Days of Unleavened Bread. Pentecost commemorates four special events pertaining to salvation. First the codification and giving of the Law (the Ten Commandments). Second, the beginning of the availability of the Holy Spirit as a begettal to the firstfruits in God’s plan of salvation. Third, the inception and founding of the spiritual organism, the church of God. And fourth, the beginning of the terms of the New Covenant.
