Wave Sheaf

Leviticus 23:10 states that; when they come into the land they were to wave the sheaf of the first fruit on the morrow after the Sabbath, and verse 15 says that they were to begin a count on the morrow after they brought the sheaf and verse 14 says they could not eat parched corn, etc., until the self-same day they brought an offering. Now, Josephus and Philo both agree this would always be on the 16th (morrow after the Sabbath, the 15th) when the Priest would wave the sheaf, and they lived in the time when the Priesthood was still active. This means the Sabbath will always be on the 15th every year, and the only way this can happen is to count the Sabbaths by the moon. It also proves the Sabbath in the first moon each year will be on the 15th every time, which is impossible to happen when using the Roman calendar.

Turn to Joshua 5:11 and see that they came into the land and did exactly what was told to them. They kept the Passover on the fourteenth day at even (night, which begins the 15th). In verse 10, they ate parched corn, etc. On the morrow after the Passover (15th), which would be the 16th. This proves the 15th was the Sabbath and 16th was the morrow after, as the two Historians who watched the Priest doing it this way confirm. The manna ceased on the same morrow (or the 16th) after forty years. It had begun forty years earlier on the 16th (Ex. 16). In addition, we can prove the Messiah rose on the 16th of Abib when the first fruit was to be lifted up and He was the first fruit of them that sleep. (I Cor.15:20-23) He did not rise on the 17th or 18th, as some suppose. He rose the third day according to the Scriptures, and the only Scripture to be found is the first fruit of the wave sheaf, which was on the 16th, and He was truly the first fruit, and was waved on the 16th according to the scriptures.
