Regardless which day you chose to observe Passover, this coming ‘first day of the week (sunday)” will be the Raysheet Omer, the Day of the Wave Offering, or early first fruits as it is called by some, and the beginning of the Counting from The Omer. And Who is ‘The Omer’? That would be Yeshua of Nazareth that came in the flesh, the Promised Messiah of Israel. And we count down 50 days (Jubilee, restoration) which is 7 full weeks as well as 7 sabbaths, and then, the day after the 7th Sabbath, is day 50 and known as Pentecost or Shavuot, the Feast of Weeks. And it all begins on the day we know as the day of the Resurrection, for on that day Yeshua presented Himself to our Father as the wave offering, the ‘raysheet omer’ – the First or Primary Sheaf – that you and I can be accepted/acceptable to our Father.
“Speak to the children of Israel, and say to them, ‘When you enter the land which I am going to give to you and reap its harvest, then you shall bring in the ‘raysheet omer’ – ‘the first and beginning sheaf’ of your harvest to the priest. 11 ‘And he (the priest) shall wave the sheaf before YHVH for you to be accepted; on the day after the Sabbath the priest shall wave it.” (Lev 23:10-11)
“Yeshua said to her, “Do not touch Me, for I have not yet ascended to the Father; but go to My brethren, and say to them, ‘I ascend to My Father and your Father, and My God and your God.'” 18 Mary Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord,” and the things He said to her. 19 When therefore it was evening on that day, the first day of the week, and the doors were shut where the disciples were for fear of the Jews, Yeshua came and stood in their midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.”” (John 20:17-19)
So as we anticipate the beginning of the ‘Counting from The Omer’ and the countdown to the 50th Day, may we see and understand that the process of restoration (Jubliee) began with Yeshua, and the ‘two leavened loaves’ of Pentecost/Shavuot (the two sticks, the two donkeys,) can and are brought together and deemed acceptable to our Father ONLY by and because of the Raysheet Omer – Yeshua of Nazareth that came in the flesh, The Promised Messiah of Israel. Shalom –
