Report on Wave-sheaf offering
May 22, 2011
In discussing the word and revelation of the Second Passover this week end, it seems to be getting clearer that the 9th sign of Elisha (dinar revaluation) will probably occur at the end of May, rather than today.
Today is the wave-sheaf offering for the Second Passover, so it has been the logical time to watch, since Elisha's 9th sign occurred at the time of the firstfruits of barley.
However, in studying Hezekiah's Second Passover in 1 Chronicles 30, it is clear that the people held a double celebration of Unleavened Bread. This means they kept the feast for a full TWO WEEKS, rather than just the usual one week.
The first week of Unleavened Bread started on May 19, ending May 25. The second week
The second week will end June 1. Sunday, May 29 would logically be the second wave-sheaf offering for the second week of Unleavened Bread. So we are hoping for May 29 to June 1 as the best possibilities. If it does not come by then, we may have to wait another year for the same feast days. That does not seem likely.
Another way of looking at it is by counting the days between Elisha's 8th sign and his 9th sign. The 8th sign (Gulf oil being capped) had two main dates associated with it. On July 9, 2010 we cast barley meal into the headwaters of the Mississippi river, even as Elisha put barley meal into the pot of poisonous meal ("death in the pot"). The oil spill was then capped 144 hours later (i.e. 6 days) on July 15.
The Remnant number in Scripture is 318, as portrayed in Gen. 14:14 as the number of men in Abraham's house who freed Lot from the kings of Shinar (Babylon).
The 318th day from July 9 is May 22.
The 318th day from July 15 is May 28.
If we count the days exclusively, they come out to May 23 and May 29.
So by this we see the possibility that the numbers point to May 28, 29. The date of May 28 has always been important to us, being 5/28. The number 528 is the number of "key" (as in the Key of David). The Hebrew word for "key" has a numeric value of 528. The story of the Key of David is told in Isaiah 22, when Shebna is replaced by Eliakim as the king's treasurer.
May 28, 1991 was the date that we were led to establish the "new net of prayer," which is the prophetic name of our ministry, given in July 1986.
May 30, 1993 is the 18th anniversary of the death of prophetic King Saul, i.e., the Age of Pentecost. Eighteen is the number of bondage in Scripture, so May 30, 2011 may see the end of "bondage" in some manner.
These are possible things to consider in the watch dates next week. If nothing happens, then I will have to try to reorient my thinking (if possible) toward next year.
