First Sheaf in Leviticus 23 not in Deuteronomy 16
How do you figure that the sheaf was waved in the evening but the sickle went into the corn the next
daylight? There could be NO sheaf UNTIL the sickle went into the grain.
3. Deuteronomy 16:9 does not support your argument about daylight. This verse explains the Lord's method of counting the 7 weeks from the first barley harvest until the wheat harvest begins. It also proves that the 2 Days of Firstfruits were invariably observed on SUNDAYS the first day of the week which is when the Resurrection necessarily HAD to happen, as the fulfilment of FIRSTFRUITS that we may be accepted.
Without the Sunday resurrection of Christ our Firstfruits, there is no hope for any of us being resurrected. 1 Corinthians 15:20,23.
4. Since the Resurrection HAD to be on the Day of Firstfruits, it HAD to be on Sunday, whichever year that was.
First Sheaf in Deuteronomy 16 and Leviticus 23
Contrary Rubies Deuteronomy 16:9
< proves > NO << Firstfruits observed >>;
< proves > NO << 2 Days of Firstfruits >>;
< proves > NO << Firstfruits observed on SUNDAYS >>;
< proves > NO << Firstfruits invariably on Sundays >>.
For sooth in fact Deuteronomy 16:9 << proves >> NOR << refers to Firstfruits >> at all.
Deuteronomy 16:9,10 is about the SEVEN WEEKS thou beginnest TO NUMBER as thou beginnest to put the sickle to HARVEST the corn&.and for the following SEVEN SEVENS-OF-DAYS of harvest shalt keep the FEAST OF (SEVEN) WEEKS. Number, seven weeks, harvest and feast are IDENTICALLY THE SAME period in the month&.in its season <observed>.
<< How do you figure that the sheaf was waved in the evening but the sickle went into the corn the next daylight? >>
Reg is right and you, Rubies, as usual, is wrong.
<< There could be NO sheaf UNTIL the sickle went into the grain .>>
Thats what YOU, as usual fraudulently, claim.
FIRST and BEFOREthree days in fact before << the sickle went into the grain >> for seven weeks of harvest, the CORNERS of your field&.ON THE SELFSAME BONE-DAY&.on the FOURTEENTH day of the First Month Leviticus 23:6,21,22 ALREADY HAD been reaped and lifted up and carried and brought to the priest Leviticus 23:6,10.
Deuteronomy 16:9b refers to the fourth day of the passover- and first full day of the harvest-season TO THE LAW OF MOSES.
Deuteronomy 16:9 refers to the week-day AFTER the First Sheaf-to-be-Waved-Before-the-LORD, HAD been waved.
Both days could have fallen on ANY CONSECUTIVE days of the WEEK but <invariably> on the same DATES
proclaimed to its season of the First Month.

Deuteronomy 16:9 refers to the first full day after the first sheaf had been waved whichever day-of-the-week which came after the sabbath to-its-season which ye shall proclaim after the selfsame BONE-DAY when thou reapest (and) thou cut the corners of thy harvest-field (and) shalt leave gleanings unto the poor and stranger(FOR HIS SHEAF to) bring to the priest. Leviticus 23:21,22,10.
The counting in Leviticus and the numbering in Deuteronomy&.
In Leviticus thou shalt count and in Deuteronomy thou shalt number are from
number(21) count(50) reckon(1) shown(6)
determine(1 my steps Job 14:16)
drawn(5) mark out/furrow(2)
slate/groove/cypher with sharp pen(12)
&.clearly with identical meaning of working out by the priest(s) or and people of the sabbaths as well as weeks so called in both Leviticus 23 and Deuteronomy 16 to their season(s).
By the bare fact of the connotations and functional meanings of this Predicative Hebrew term ALONE, it leaves no doubt THIS SERVICE or and this reckoning or and institutionalisation or and PROCLAMATION or and OBSERVANCE of the FEAST&.at the season thou camest out of Egypt in later times afterward, was done by the observation- paratehreoh of days and new moons and seasons and years (Galatians 4:10) both with the naked eye and with the applied science of some kind of astrometrics.
THIS TRUTH ALONE prohibits and nullifies any CORRELATION of that which was or were counted and or numbered in either Leviticus 23 and or Deuteronomy 16 WITH THE WEEK and or with its weekly SABBATH and or with its weekly Seventh Day.
It is beforehand, above all, and once and for all ruled out by the very use of the word sapharin both Leviticus 23 and Deuteronomy 16that
1) the counting / numbering / determination / proclamation of the feast of weeks or of the seven weeks or of the seven sabbaths, ever or whatsoever had anything to do with the counting / numbering / reckoning TO SEASON(S); or,
2) ever or whatsoever HAD TO begin on the WEEK-day after the Sabbath of the WEEKwhich Sabbath-of-the-week a priori and axiomatic has ever had to do with and ever has been the day The Seventh Day Sabbath Day OF THE LORD GOD!
But that the day AFTER the sabbath-to-its-season and the sabbath-to-its-season could coincide, naturally, was possible and, naturally, happened.
But, that the day AFTER the sabbath-to-its-season at the first ever and last ever passovers in fact was the Seventh Day of the week Sabbath of the LORD, was no mere coincidence, but the eternal predetermination of the Almighty.
God never intended or determined the same historic chronology for any of the feasts of weeks in between those first and last passovers.
Now we can survey the further similarities and or dissimilarities between the Exodus and Leviticus feast of weeks on the one hand and the Deuteronomy feast of weeks on the other hand.
Why?! Are they not the one and same feast because they were the one and same feast?!
No; they were very different; nor were they both feasts at first.
When Israel left Egypt they had no harvest to harvest which they could begin with or end with to harvest.
But Leviticus takes for granted an established Israel nation settled in the Promised Land for whom God is giving the passover for a feast of remembrance of how He AT THE FIRST, redeemed them out of the land of Egypt. But NOW they must FEAST the cause and occasion of their salvation with the FIRSTFRUITS OF THE LAND they lived off.
The feast of weeks originated after Israel had cultivated a harvestnot before. That means the feast of weeks was an INSTITUTION which wasnt brought forth out of Egypt like right from out of Egypt the passover was an ORDINANCE FOREVER for the children of Israel.
So what difference does that make between the feast of weeks in Leviticus 23 and The Feast of Weeks as per Deuteronomy?
The causal factor is establishment.
Where Leviticus presupposes the original passover; Deuteronomy takes for granted the passover SUBSEQUENT to and resultant from the original passover.
Leviticus uses the Seventh Day Sabbath as prototype for the seven (weeks) of Sabbathsshabbath; Deuteronomy uses the weekshabuah as establishment prototype for the seven sevens (of weeks).
So we find the different words used in Leviticus and Deuteronomy.
Leviticus uses seven Sabbaths; Deuteronomy uses seven weeks.
But there is much more.
Leviticus, begin count the day after the sabbath (to its season); Deuteronomy, begin number the seven weeks per se.
Leviticus has, number FIFTY DAYS; Deuteronomy has, thou shalt number SEVEN WEEKS (seven sevens)that is, number 49 daysnot fifty days.
Leviticus commands, Ye shall number unto you from the day after the sabbath the day after ye brought the sheaf of the wave offering (to the priest); Deuteronomy commands, Begin to number the seven weeks from the day as thou beginnest to put the sickle to the cornfull time, which was on the day after the first sheaf was waved.
Leviticus does not call the seventh day that ULB was eaten a solemn assembly to the LORD; Deuteronomy does. It confirms Deuteronomy is from an era of long established custom and law while Leviticus still depended largely on Israels distant past for its conceptualisation of Israels feasts and institutions.
Leviticus already had accepted the two days of two dates for the sacrifice of the passover and the feast of the passover, respectively the fourteenth and the fifteenth days of the First Month. By the time Deuteronomy was written these days and their dates were so commonly known, their dates are not even mentioned. But still their place of order in the passover chronology applied. neither shall there anything remain of the flesh which thou sacrificedst mid-afternoon the FIRST day&.and thou shalt roast and EAT [in the night after] and thou shalt return in the morning [the following day] unto thy tents.
The passovers institutionalised observance is further obvious in Deuteronomy in the tents that are mentioned in remembrance of Israels pitching tents at Succot at the first passover after they had departed from Rameses.
This day which followed the first day thou sacrificedst the flesh (on the fourteenth day of the First Month) was of course the fifteenth day of the First Month and the first of seven days ULBthe first of six days thou shalt eat ULB and on the seventh day [ULB was eaten, was] a solemn assembly to the LORD thy GOD.
In Leviticus we dont find these finer detail.
As the feast of weeks got more solemnized, we see the seven of seven (days) of SABBATHS (weeks) in Leviticus, further detached in Deuteronomy from their first and original CLOSE NEXUS with the Seventh Day Sabbath (of the week).
See the calendar.
On the first Seventh Day Sabbath of the week on which on the sixteenth day of the month the first sheaf was waved, there follow seven of seven days weeks each ending on an actual Seventh Day Sabbath on the 23rd, 30th and so on. BEGINNING TO COUNT FIFTY DAYS FROM THE DAY YE SHALL WAVE THE FIRST SHEAFthat isbeginning to count fifty days from and including day one the 16th of the month on the calendar the Seventh Day Sabbath, seven actual Seventh Day Sabbath-weeks, add up to fifty days or Pentecost, again on the Seventh Day Sabbath.
It is a mistake therefore, and very confusing, not to differentiate between the type of sabbaths and weeks used in Leviticus and Deuteronomy respectively to make the reader understand the order of Jesus own and last passover. There is NO such thing as that the First SheafJesus ChristHAD TO resurrect First Sheaf Wave Offering Before the LORD <<<on the First Day of the week>>>.
No matter how popular the notion, it STAYS the tradition and commandment of MEN in defiance of the straight and simple Word of GOD!
