15 And ye shall count unto you from the morrow after the sabbath, from the day that ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering; seven sabbaths shall be complete:16 Even unto the morrow after the seventh sabbath shall ye number fifty days; and ye shall offer a new grain offering unto the Lord. Leviticus 23:15-16
3 ACTIONS CALLED FOR IN LEVITICUS 23:15-16
1) COUNT 7 SABBATHS!
2) NUMBER 50 DAYS ON THE MORROW AFTER OR DAY AFTER THE SABBATH!
3)THEN MAKE A NEW GRAIN OFFERING!
3A)WHAT I WANT TO FOCUS ON FIRST IS THE VERY IMPORTANT REQUIRMENTS YAHOVAH MAKES FOR A 1ST FRUITS NEW GRAIN OFFERING!
3B)2NDLY WHEN WE UNDERSTAND YAHOVAH REQUIRMENTS SURROUNDING THE 1ST FRUITS NEW GRAIN OFFERING THEN THERE WILL BE NO CONFUSION ABOUT THE FIRST 2 ACTIONS, THE COUNTING OF 7 SABBATHS, AND THE NUMBERING OF 50 DAYS THERE AFTER.
DEEP SPIRITUAL TRUTH HIDDEN HERE! I believe the main reason for the confusion surrounding the timing of the 1st fruits offering of the summer wheat harvest is Satan's hatred for any offering made to YAHOVAH but especially the 1st fruits offering for the final end time Harvest.
Powers of darkness are doing everything to resists the 1st fruits END TIME FINAL SUMMER OFFERING to YAHOVAH!
HERE WE GO.......
We all know, or should know, that Leviticus 23:16 teaches that a NEW GRAIN offering -- NOT an OLD one -- is to be brought to YEHOVAH from the SUMMER wheat harvest.
Shavuot/Pentecost NEW grain offering had to be from the planted SPRING WHEAT which is harvested in the summer 50 days AFTER the seventh Sabbath (Leviticus 23:16).
The Rabbis teach that SPRING WHEAT that which is planted in the spring and reaped four months later in the summer cannot be eaten until the following year because it is considered chodosh/NEW grain/meat.
I had to put this in here! As I was writing this the Holy Spirit dropped this funny clip from the kung fu Panda movie!
The dreaded finger hold!
OK I Got to put my serious side back on...
Grain which took root after the second day of Passover is known as chodosh or new grain and is not permitted until the following year's omer offering.
The Rabbis are in direct violation of YEHOVAH commandment for the NEW GRAIN OFFERING.
I guess the Rabbis attempted to Skadoosh YEHOVAH party!
So what else is new....
6 A son honoureth his father, and a servant his master: if then I be a father, where is mine honour? and if I be a master, where is my fear? saith the Lord of hosts unto you, O priests, that despise my name. And ye say, Wherein have we despised thy name?7 Ye offer polluted bread upon mine altar; and ye say, Wherein have we polluted thee? In that ye say, The table of the Lord is contemptible. Malachi 1: 6-7
1) Priests despised YEHOVAH name
2) The alter/ offering were contemptible to them.
We have been living under A fulfilled Prophecy by YEHOVAH:
And he hath violently taken away his tabernacle, as if it were of a garden: he hath destroyed his places of the assembly: the Lord hath caused the solemn feasts and sabbaths to be forgotten in Zion, and hath despised in the indignation of his anger the king and the priest. Lamentations 2:6
The traditional 3rd month Shavuot/ Pentecost winter wheat cannot fit the requirements of a NEW grain offering because it is considered OLD grain because it is planted in the fall, and took root before Passover.
Because it was planted before the Spring Equinox and, according to the Mishnah etc., it is considered old grain. The Mishnah, meaning 'repetition', is the earliest authoritative body of Jewish oral law.
Jesus said in John 4:35 that its "4 months to harvest" when Pentecost " has fully come" New Grain/Wheat is sown in the first month of Abib/Nissan and is reaped in the fourth month/summer which again is seven Sabbaths plus 50 days.
You cannot plant and harvest wheat in 7 Sabbaths or 7 weeks. The first fruit of the wheat must be from the summer wheat harvest, not a spring wheat harvest.
IT ALL COMES DOWN TO THE HEART OF THE MATTER.....
NOW THAT WE UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANT REQUIRMENTS YAHOVAH MADE FOR THE 1ST FRUITS NEW GRAIN SUMMER WHEAT HARVEST OFFERING THERE WILL NOW BE NO CONFUSION ABOUT THE FIRST 2 ACTIONS, THE COUNTING OF 7 SABBATHS, AND THE NUMBERING OF 50 DAYS THERE AFTER.
