Why doesn’t Deuteronomy 16:9 tell us to count 50 days after the seventh Sabbath?
You are going to kick yourself when you're done reading this. >grin<
Please read about the other feasts listed in Deuteronomy 16. None of them have all their details mentioned.
Deuteronomy 16 seems to be a review of some sort. Wave sheaf is not mentioned in Passover/Unleavened
Bread. Counting 50 days is not mentioned in Feast of Weeks. The 8th day is not listed in the recounting of
Tabernacles. Aren't these parts important to these feasts?
If we don't have to count 50 days from the morrow AFTER the seventh Sabbath complete as we were instructed in
Leviticus 23:15-16, then based on Deuteronomy 16 we don't have to observe wavesheaf or the 8th day of
Tabernacles either. See my point?
Gotta read EVERYTHING in context. I was hit with this very argument from Deuteronomy 16 several years ago. So
I read it, the whole thing, not just the part about Pentecost. When I did it became very clear that Deuteronomy 16
is not "doctrinal", was not meant to be doctrinal, it was review in which just the basics were covered.
I hope this was helpful. It was so obvious you are probably smacking yourself on the head and saying "Duh!" aren't
you? Get used to it. We have all been so indoctrinated with a lie that we gloss over the words that are actually
there (or not there in this case). It never ceases to amaze me how blind I am (and would remain were it not for the
indwelling of Yah's Spirit).
14. Deuteronomy 16:9 says NOTHING about counting 50 days to Pentecost from the
morrow after the seventh Sabbath.
