Forerunner: Preparing Christians for the Kingdom of God

December 2000
Volume 9, Number 11

The wavesheaf offering begins the spring barley harvest that culminates with Pentecost. The day of the wavesheaf also begins the 50-day count to Pentecost. Normally there is little disagreement over when wavesheaf day occurs, but 2001 is different—as will be 2005 and 2008.  (Corbis Images)



Personal from John W. Ritenbaugh
Countdown to Pentecost 2001

Pentecost in 2001 is a little different than in other years. The Sabbath during the Days of Unleavened Bread falls on the last day. How should we count to Pentecost on odd years like this? John Ritenbaugh explains the reasons for counting the same way as in all other years.

Self-Denial

by Martin G. Collins

A key to overcoming our sins is learning when to deny ourselves. Christ plainly declares that those who desire to follow Him must deny themselves.
