BIKKURIM is a Biblical Feast given to all of God’s people in Lev 23:9-14. The word “bikkurim” in Hebrew means “First Fruits.” In Deuteronomy 26:2, God said to the children of Israel, “… you shall take some of the first fruit of all produce of the ground… and put it in a basket and go to the place where the Lord your God chooses to make His name abide.”
People of God’s Word should know that the history of salvation has happened on this day. We all need to get to know our Bibles and history better. The first move in the direction away from the Biblical Calendar happened in the second century with a slight compromise to Passover. The nearest Sunday was chosen to mark the day of Christ’s resurrection, rather than starting with the beginning of the Passover season on the 14th of Nisan, then counting three days to the Feast of First Fruits (Bikkurim).. If you believes that there is a God in heaven who’s inspired word is the Bible, then you must come to grips with the fact that God calls these feasts (spoken of in Leviticus 23) “My feasts” and “My appointed times.”
It makes my heart sad when God’s people give the Babylonian Queen of Heaven claim of Christ’s Resurrection by calling it “Easter.” The origins of Easter is so grievous I hate to even discuss the details. People dismiss the fact that infants were sacrificed on the Babylonian Queen of Heaven’s altar at a sunrise service on Easter Sunday where the eggs of Ishtar were dyed with the blood of the sacrificed infants. That’s unfortunately the roots of Easter in a nutshell.
