The Scriptures itself dictates the counting of the seven weeks following Passover Holiday. Counting the omer (Leviticus 23:15-16) refers to the 49-day period between Passover (Pesach) and the Biblical Holiday of Pentecost (Shavuot).

In accordance with the scriptures, Great Awakening Assemblies is hosting a PENTECOST WEEKEND EXPERIENCE June 3-6, 2022, at the Batesville Civic Center in Batesville, MS.  

Participants will witness a powerful flow of PROPHECY, PROPHETIC WORSHIP, PENETRATING TEACHING, and a manifestation of the GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT (RUACH) remembering the Feast of the Weeks (Pentecost) in which the Disciples received the fulfillment of the ReNewed Covenant of the Law and gift of the Holy Spirit and began to speak with different tongues and all men of all nations understood them as if they spoke in their native tongue in which they were born on the Holy Day of PENTECOST (Acts 2).

Enjoy a rare opportunity to spend time learning and exploring this Holy Day with a diverse mix of people from around the country. Throughout the weekend there a number of worship services, fellowships, programs, immersions and activities to choose from. Families from all over will gather together with us to create a marvelous extended family and community. 

Shavuot is a major festival having historical and agricultural significance; it marks the end of the barley harvest and the beginning of the wheat harvest.  In Exodus 34:22 the Hebrew Shavuot is identified as the Feast of Weeks OR the Feast of Harvest in Exodus 23:16. The Greek name “Pentecost”, which means fiftieth, is FIRST found in Acts 2:1.  Counting of the days from Passover to Shavuot is called “counting of the Omer”.  

Shavuot is considered the closing festival of the Passover season in Exodus 34:22; Leviticus 23:15; Deuteronomy 16:9-10; this day is further referred to as “latter Firstfruits” of the spring harvest.  The “early Firstfruits” (barley) WAS waved before Shavuot.

YHWH during the Feast of Firstfruits and the “latter fruits” (wheat) were offered unto YHWH during the Feast of Weeks.  It is also referred to as the “Day of the congregation or assembly” in Deuteronomy 18:16.  Another name is Atserret, meaning stop, cease or conclusion of 7 weeks of counting.

Shavuot is the only festival for which no specific date is given in the bible.  Rather the people were instructed to count 7 weeks “…from the morrow after the Sabbath, from the day that you brought the sheaf (omer) of the wave offering (Leviticus 23:15); it is the successful conclusion of the first wheat-growing season and the anniversary celebration of the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai.

It is the celebration to reawaken and strengthen personal relationships with YHWH by rededication to the observance and study of the Torah.  When YHWH revealed himself on Mt. Sinai, his people heard his voice proclaiming the Ten Commandments.  Then the Israelites pledged their allegiance to YHWH by saying “…all that YHWH has said we will do and be obedient.” (Exodus 24:7)


Shavuot is one of the three times when all Hebrew men are required to appear before YHWH (Exodus 23:17; Deuteronomy 16:16) Historically, the main activity on the feast of Shavuot was the presentation of the wave offering to YHWH, two loaves of bread with leaven (Leviticus 23:15-21).  The bread was to be brought with seven male lames, a young bull and two rams, as burnt offerings (Leviticus 23:18).  The sin offering was a male goat (Leviticus 23:19)

The wave offering expressed the Hebrew dependence on YHWH for the harvest and their daily bread.  This was a thanksgiving offering.  The link  between Passover and Shavuot is the Omer.  The second night of Passover the barley is harvested, and the first sheaf is waved before the altar in the temple.  On Shavuot two loaves are waved as an offering before the same alter.  This one day is to be kept with a holy convocation.  It is one of the days on which all Israel is to meet Elohim and one another, at the place where YHWH chooses. 

Shavuot signifies the process of freedom started with the exodus at Passover, and concluded with the proclamation of the Toray (law) at Sinai.  On the day when Moses received the Torah, three thousand souls died due to disobedience (Exodus 32:28). YHWH has never taken his covenant with us casually.  He is a Jealous Elohim.  While on one hand He desired and still desires intimacy with us, he also is committed in marriage to us by his rights as a husband.  When we violate him, through spiritual adultery, we may indeed face his jealous wrath.

The Two Loaves of Bread

The outpouring of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) transpired on the very day the Hebrews were offering the two waved loaves to Elohim representing their reliance on Him.  The two wave loaves with leaven offered to YHWH may represent the Hebrews and Gentiles, both sinners having leaven in their lives, who are able to receive the baptism of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) through the Messiah.  These were promises made by John the Baptist and the risen Messiah (Luke 3:16; 24:49; Acts 1:8) and are now fulfilled on Shavuot.  The two loaves may also represent two witnesses.  He that despised Moses’ law died without mercy under two or three witnesses (Hebrew 10:28).  The law of Moses is associated with two witnesses; Shavuot is associated with the law and the two loaves.  Witnesses were always connected with the law through the bible; likewise the two loaves and the law are associated with Shavuot (Pentecost). Yahusha said that they would become witnesses after they were baptized with the Ruach (spirit) on Shavuot (Acts 1:3-9).  The followers of the Messiah obtained a mission through the dramatic decent of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit); this was no new religion but rather a re-wakening of their conviction that YHWH, the promised Messiah, would reappear to restore His kingdom on the earth.

Messianic Significance of the Feast of Weeks (Shavuot)

Shavuot (Pentecost) not only memorializes the first giving of the Torah written on tablets of stone, but it also commemorates on the same day many years later the giving of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit).

In Acts 2, we see YHWH’s marvelous timing, thousands of Hebrews had journeyed to Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) to celebrate the Feast of Weeks (Shavuot).  The disciples waiting in the upper room were filled with the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit) and began to worship Elohim in foreign languages that were spoken and understood by the Hebrew pilgrims; that day three thousand souls were saved.

The Torah of Elohim has been written in the heart of every believer.  “But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days saith YHWH.  I will put my Torah (law) in their inward parts, and write it in their hearts; and will be their Elohim and they shall be My people (Lo Ami)(Jeremiah 31:33).


Shavuot has several names;  The feast of Pentecost (Pentecost means 50); Feast of Weeks; Day of the Qahol (assembly or church as some may call it). Shavuot is the plural – feast of weeks and Shavuah is the singular. There are seven weeks between Shavuot (Passover) and Shavuot (Pentecost) giving us a total of 49 days plus one for fifty days.  

Chalav is Hebrew for milk.  The gematria (Hebrew numerical value) for milk is 40, reminding us of the number of days and nights that Moshe (Moses) remained on Mt. Sinai.  Milk is associated with the nurturing generosity of a loving caring mother giving life and sustenance to her baby.  

Yah is also referred to as El Shaddai which means “the God who is more than enough” or “the all sufficient one”.  Shad in the Hebrew means breast.  Shadaim is the plural and indicates sufficiency and nourishment.  Yah’s complete sufficiency to nurture his fledgling nation or “baby” in fruitfulness.  Shaddai is also an acronym for the phrase “shomer daltot Yisrael” which means “Guardian of the doors of Israel”.  He is our sustainer.  He is our source.  It is this supreme love that connects to the anniversary of the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai.  New beginnings and connecting to the source is what Shavuot is all about.

Modesty & Alcohol Statement

While the Great Awakening International are unaware of the lifestyles of all individuals who are invited as guests to our PUBLIC EVENTS & FEAST DAYS, we will hereby enforce a very strict modesty code that is reflective of righteousness and modesty as Torah-observant believers.

Our public events are mainly family oriented events where children will be present. Any inappropriateness that does not promote a Kodesh lifestyle can have a negative impact on impressionable children. We are committed to do what most children cannot do for themselves; guard themselves from unnecessary temptations and environments where inappropriateness is allowed.

Furthermore, we are far from the “Fashion Police,”“Cleavage Patrol” and Modesty Mafia” however, seductive and enticing apparel will not be welcomed at Great Awakening International future events, as it serves as a unhealthy temptation and is not synonymous with a Set-Apart environment.

We’re cognizant that modesty is subjective and can be distinguishable from culture to culture. It can be ambiguous. Modesty has a wide lane, primarily because it's unknown what actually increases the desires of others (example: open toe shoes may catch the attention of someone who has a feet fetish). If it's even a question of "is this appropriate?" then chances are, it's not.

Men and women are similar in their temptation to sin. These things affect both genders- “The lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life.”  Both men and women have to be on guard against those things.

Proverbs 4:23 says, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it spring the issues of life.”
Proverbs 23:7 says, “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”

Immodesty is an issue of the heart.  We recognize that how attendees dress on the outside says a lot about what is going on in the inside. “The train of sin runs on tracks that were laid in the heart.”  When one dresses inappropriately for set-apart events, they must be very honest with themselves about their motives.
-Why do I dress like I do?
-What kind of reactions am I trying to get?

The Great Awakening International is a proponent that our community should be unique and specific in our dress and look different from the world. Furthermore, the Great Awakening International is a proponent that men should wear attire gender-specific for men and women should wear clothing gender-tailored for women. No registered participant will be allowed enter into our SET-APART events wearing apparel that is specifically made for the opposite gender.

While we are open to unawakened nonbelievers to attend our events, in hopes of sharing the Truth to them, we will not tolerate inappropriate behavior, dress, or speech. Modesty is born from a genuine heart to not stir up the desires in others that can’t be fulfilled righteously.

Modesty is an attitude of propriety and decency in dress, grooming, language, and behavior. If we are modest, we do not draw undue attention to ourselves. Instead, we seek to “glorify Yah in [our] body, and in [our] spirit” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). Immodesty increases sin and a distraction among men. (Leviticus 19:29)

As the Children of Israel, our clothing expresses our values, customs and ultimately who we are. It sends messages about us, and it influences the way we as Israel act. When we are modestly dressed, we can invite the companionship of the Ruach and exercise a good influence on those around us.

Therefore, all participants and their invited guests to the Great Awakening International Set-Apart events must avoid clothing that is revealing or extreme in appearance in order to engage in our set apart events.

Moving forward, registration will include a modesty clause that attendees must adhere to. This will be reflected on ALL future registration forms. All attendees and their guests must sign this modesty clause in order to secure their entry into our set-apart event.

Dressing modestly is our way of telling the world that we don’t play by their rules – we play by Yah’s rules.

Anyone that shows up to any Great Awakening International set-apart event not dressed to par will be reminded of the modesty clause that they signed, refunded their monies, and turned away from the event in love (Ephesians 4:15; 4:29; Colossians 4:6), never with personal opinions, judging or shaming, and never accompanied by gossip (Proverbs 11:12-13 ;21:23).

We recognize the immodest person as a soul. This is why we have employed a new system of confronting the individual in a loving, biblical way with the hopes of conversion. We recognize that immodest behavior is typically a symptom of a deeper heart issue and we want to minister to the heart before we change their attire.

However, public events (where registration is necessary) will be treated differently from outdoor outreaches and weekly Sabbath Gatherings where there is a chance that a guest can show up without knowledge of our modesty expectation. It is at this point that the Great Awakening will show unconditional love, apply grace once given to all of us, develop a relationship with the immodest individual, and hope for an opportunity to teach them the standard of modesty. We recognize that we cannot scale a fish until we catch it first.

The Great Awakening International has decided not to enter into a contract with any venue that will have a wet bar open in our rented private event space(s). We understand that this could provide a temptation and a distraction from the purpose of our set-apart events.

Recognizing that the use and abuse of alcohol is an issue for some people within our reach, we strive to provide a safe sanctuary from the pain of addiction for those directly or indirectly affected by it. In addition, we admit that intoxication has the potential to impact clarity and understanding, thereby limiting our access to spiritual Truth.

We also recognize the exercise of freedom to choose to drink alcoholic beverages responsibly and in moderation. The Bible provides numerous examples of the responsible use of alcohol as well as condemnation for “drunkenness”. The Great Awakening International affirms the right of individuals in conscience to make responsible choices between abstention and moderate, non-problematic use. However, to avoid the potential of intoxication and the ensuing behavior that follows it, we will no longer hold events at venues where there is open access to alcoholic beverages.

Therefore, the Great Awakening International encourages and supports abstention at all of our Set-Apart activities. Moderate drinking in low-risk situations not provided by the venue in private rented spaces will not be opposed. Heavy drinking in any situation is vigorously discouraged by Great Awakening International.

While there is no “Thou shalt not …” with regards to secular music in the Bible, we know that some music degenerates into immoral behavior. Therefore, Set-apart music will be the preferred choice at all future Great Awakening International events. Great Awakening International will be monitoring all musical selections from guest bands and musicians moving forward. Henceforth, we are putting a moratorium on all outside bands/musical guests and will only be using awakened, Ruach-filled, and Torah observant musicians for future events.

  • Immersion as well as baptism are expressly done with a repentance first focus, and is voluntary.
  • Immersion the participants are to RISE from beneath the water with their own strength and guidance of the Ruach (Holy Spirit).
  • In baptism the facilitator brings the participants up out of the water.
  • Baptism is done mostly in pools our stabilized waters but can be done in living waters. Immersions (Hebraic Mikvah's) are usually done in living bodies of water.
  • Baptism usually is a one time event. Immersions can occur during multiple life transforming events. Such as coming of age, child birth, marriage, ritual cleansing and many more.
  • One is practiced by Christianity and the other is cultural related to Israel of scripture.

During Immersion: Here is the process for the actual physical immersion in water.
  • We will help you step into the lake.
  • Two of our Moreh immersers will stand to each side of you
  • If led by the Ruach, one or both Moreh Immersers will pray and prophecy over you
  • The Immersers will gently push down on the top of your head as a signifer to for you to go down into the water. (You will go down in your own strenght but rise in and by the Ruach.
  • You will dip yourself vertically (straightdown) into the water and come up vertically (straightway).
  • You are encouraged to rlelax, plug your nose.
  • Our immersers will hold you as you come up to ensure your safety.
  • While you are being immersed, the immerser will say something along these lines: “We say the following: "In obedience to the command of our Mashiach and based upon the profession of your faith, I now immerse you in the Name and in the authority of Yahusha/Yahshua." Buried with Mashiach [immersed in water], Raised to walk in new life [emerge from water].”
  • Feel free to express your joy, praise to Abba, look out at your friends, wave at your family, and cheer if you want. Just be yourself. This is a community celebration, so feel free to celebrate with your friends, Mishpacha, and dozens of believers on sight.
