The Counting of the Omer: Day 4

The Counting of the Omer Day 4:  The Road to Transformation The Counting of the Omer – First Fruits to Shavuot

 

  • “And you shall count for yourselves from the day after the Sabbath…Count fifty days to the day after the seventh Sabbath; then you shall offer a new grain offering to the Lord.”(Leviticus 23: 15-16 NKJV)

The Counting of the Omer covers a fifty-day period of time from the Feast of First Fruits until Shavuot (Pentecost). Beginning with the day of First Fruits, each subsequent day is counted for seven complete weeks, plus one day – fifty days. During the Counting of the Omer, we “count up” to the Feast of Shavuot  (Pentecost-the 50th Day) with each day of counting, adding to the growing expectation of what Pentecost will bring.  What we must realize is there will be no new wine contained in old wine skins, therefore it is a purging and a growth that is also expected in order to receive at the time of Pentecost. During the Counting of the Omer, each day 8 verses from Psalms 119 is read and meditated upon,  causing us to review the condition of our hearts before God.

Day 4 of Counting the Omer

(Dalet)

25 I lie prostrate in the dust; revive me, in keeping with your word. 26 I told you of my ways, and you answered me; teach me your laws. 27 Make me understand the way of your precepts, and I will meditate on your wonders. 28 I am melting away from anxiety and grief; renew my strength, in keeping with your word. 29 Keep deceitful ways far from me, and favor me with your Torah. 30 I choose the way of trust; I set your rulings [before me]. 31 I cling to your instruction; Adonai, don’t let me be put to shame! 32 I will run the way of your mitzvoth (commandments), for you have broadened my understanding.

“Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the Universe, who has sanctified us with His commandments and commanded us to count the omer: Tonight is the 4th night of the Omer.”

 

Loving you enough to tell you the truth,

Prophetess C. C.
