The Wave Sheaf and Pentecost – 2017

“The Wave Sheaf and Pentecost” is segment 3 of The Feasts and the Ancient Hebrew Wedding video series. Many believers (Messianics, Ephraimites, and members of the Two-House movement) follow the rabbinical method for establishing the Wave Sheaf and Pentecost. We explain how Scripture calls for us to practice a different method (Yahweh’s method) and why it is important for Yahweh’s people to follow this method instead.

In the chapter on “Aviv Barley and the Head of the Year”, we saw that Rosh HaShanah (the Head of the Year) begins when we sight the first crescent sliver of the new moon from the land of Israel, when we know we will be able to offer the very first sheaf of aviv (medium dough) barley 15-21 days later, on Yom HaNafat HaOmer (the Day of the Wave Sheaf Offering).

We also saw that this single omer (sheaf) of firstfruits symbolizes Yeshua, who was the first of the firstfruits to be raised from the dead. And that, just as Yeshua represents the very first of the firsfruits to be offered, so the omer must consist of the very firstfruits of the barley to come ripe in the land of Israel. And that this is what clears the path for the rest of the harvest.

In this segment, we examine the errors made by the rabbinical and Karaite calendars in relation to the wave sheaf and Pentecost, as well as when the right time is for the Wave Sheaf and Penecost. We will also talk more about how the Wave Sheaf and Pentecost relate to Yeshua HaMashiach.

The Wave Sheaf and Penecost: NOT “Spring” Feasts!

The rabbis consider that Passover, Unleavened Bread, the offering of the Wave Sheaf and Pentecost are “spring feasts”. That is because, according to the “Jewish” Hillel II Calendar, Passover may not take place prior to the Spring (Vernal) Equinox. We will explain why the equinox and equilux are significant events in witchcraft, on the Gregorian Roman calendar, on the Equinox calendar, and on the rabbinic Hillel II calendar, and why it is a very grave error to base Yahweh’s calendar upon these non-Scriptural criteria.

When is the Wave Sheaf and Pentecost?

As we saw in the chapter on “Aviv Barley and the Head of the Year”, Yom HaNafat HaOmer (the Day of the Wave Sheaf Offering) takes place on the day after the weekly Sabbath in which the Passover falls. We will give Scriptural proof and also explain what “the day after the Sabbath” means.

The Karaite Error of “Harvestable Fields”

According to the Karaite (Sadducee) doctrine, Yom HaNafat HaOmer cannot be held unless there is enough barley to feed the nation of Israel from the new crop. This theory does not work, this video explains why in detail.

The Rabbinical Error of “MiMaharat haPesach”

The rabbis tell us to offer the omer on the day after the Pesach, no matter when the Pesach falls. This is because the rabbis say that when Yahweh told Israel to offer the omer on mimaharat HaShabbat (the day after the Shabbat, מִמָּחֳרַת הַשַּׁבָּת), what He meant was to offer the omer on the day after the Pesach (mimaharat HaPesach, מִמָּחֳרַת הַפֶּסַח). This theology fails, for many reasons.

We will take a look at the Hebrew and see that Yahweh did not say to offer the omer on the day after the Passover (מִמָּחֳרַת הַפֶּסַח). Rather, He said to offer it on the day after the weekly Sabbath (מִמָּחֳרַת הַשַּׁבָּת). We will see several problems with the rabbincal theology of MiMaharat haPesach, and the errors this causes in how the rabbies do the wave sheaf and Pentecost.

Each in its order

When we follow Yahweh’s commandments, everything lines up perfectly. If we time Rosh HaShanah correctly, then not only will the firstfruits of barley be ready by Yom HaNafat HaOmer (The Day of the Wave Sheaf Offering), and the firstfruits of wheat will also be ready by Shavuot (Pentecost). In this study we will talk all about the errors different groups make with their calendars, why it is important to keep Yahweh’s feasts at His appointed times, and how you and your loved ones can be sure that you are keeping the day of the Wave Sheaf and Pentecost right, as well as all of Yahweh’s feasts.
