High #Rapture Watch End Times Prophecy 49 Barley Omers to Pentecost June 3, 2017
"Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, “Speak to the sons 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 sheaf of the first fruits of your harvest to the priest. He shall wave the sheaf before the Lord for you to be accepted; on the day after the sabbath ( Sunday ) the priest shall wave it.
Now on the day when you wave the sheaf, you shall offer a male lamb one year old without defect for a burnt offering to the Lord. Its grain offering shall then be two-tenths of an ephah of fine flour mixed with oil, an offering by fire to the Lord for a soothing aroma, with its drink offering, a fourth of a hin of wine. Until this same day, until you have brought in the offering of your God, you shall eat neither bread nor roasted grain nor new growth. It is to be a perpetual statute throughout your generations in all your dwelling places. You shall also count for yourselves from the day after the sabbath, from the day when you brought in the sheaf of the wave offering; there shall be seven complete sabbaths. You shall count fifty days to the day after the seventh sabbath ( Sunday ); then you shall present a new grain offering ( Wheat ) to the Lord ( Pentecost )....( end quote ).
So there is to be a count of "seven sabbaths" which is "seven weeks." This is why this period is called the "feast of weeks." There are seven days in one week.....7 x 7 = 49 Barley Omers. The day 50 is Pentecost. This is when a "new grain" offering is presented to the Lord. Once again, the Church is "Barley" and not "wheat." This "new grain" is of the "wheat" and not of the Barley. For the "Barley harvest" is over which is showing ( I believe ) that the Church / church age is now complete! ( The fullness of the Gentiles - Rom. 11:25,26 ).
Now watch this!
7 Sabbaths = seven weeks x 49 Omers ( 49 days ) = 343
The number 343 is the gematria value for the modern Hebrew term "Rapture."
ש ל ה ו ב
2 6 5 30 300 / total = 343
343 / divided by 7 sabbaths = 49 Omers
The 49 Omers, or 49 days of the Feast of weeks, ( seven sabbaths, or 7 weeks = 49 days ), and the day 50 which is Pentecost follows the same pattern of the 49 year cycle and the 50th year Jubilee pattern and principle.
In Bible Mathematics the number 40 stands for "Probation." And the number 9 stands for "Finality." So in this number 49, or more specifically the 49 Barley Omers we see that "probation" is over and now "Final." This could very well be making a reference to the fact that the Church, the body of Christ who is represented as the Barley is now complete and "Final." In otherwords "time is up!
40 x 9 = 360........A biblical prophetic year = 360 days. The 2520 days of the Tribulation ( seven year period ) is setup on 360 day years......2520 days / divided by 360 = 7 years.
The number 360 is also the gematria value for the Hebrew phrase....."The year."
ה ש נ ה
5 50 300 5 / total = 360
Matthew 13:30....."Allow both to grow together ( wheat and the tares) until the harvest; and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers, “First gather up the tares and bind them in bundles to burn them up ( takes place during the seven year tribulation period ), but gather the wheat into my barn ( is a reference to the righteous Jew and gentile believers who are still alive at the END of the tribulaton period, and who will then be admitted and allow entry into Christ's earthly kingdom when He returns to the earth to rule and reign ).
Matthew 13:40....So just as the tares are gathered up and burned with fire, so shall it be at the end of the age. ( Which begins with the seven year tribulation period ).
God has provided "prophetic truth" to be understood by the agricultural cycles which are a "vital clue" in understanding the timing and season of Christ's coming for His Church, and also a vital clue for understanding the timing and seaon of Christ's second advent to the earth.
The "Wheat Harvest" begins at Pentecost. And the "Wheat Harvest" depicts the "End of the age" which begins with the seven year tribulation period. During the "Wheat Harvest" God will be separating the "wheat" which represents the righteous believers from the "tares" ( the unbelieving wicked ).
Three times a year the men of Israel were to present themselves before the Lord.
Deuteronomy 16:16........“Three times in a year all your males shall appear before the Lord your God in the place which He chooses, at the Feast of Unleavened Bread and at the Feast of Weeks ( Pentecost ) and at the Feast of Booths, and they shall NOT appear before the Lord empty-handed.
God has already spoken to and addressed the nation of Israel on several Pentecosts in the past. Israel's first Pentecost experience took place at Mount Sinai ( Exodus chapter 19 ). Then Israel's "second Pentecost" encounter took place in Acts chapter 2. And it could be that the "third Pentecost" encounter which Israel will experience will take place right after the Rapture of the church.
On Pentecost in Acts chapter 2 the new born Church was all "Jewish." It was then that God spoke to the men of Israel in Acts chapter 2 through the mouth of the Apostle Peter. But the nation as a whole did not repent, and so Israel was scattered and ran out of the land ( The diaspora ). And today Israel is still in the same spiritual condition as she was back then. She has not come to repentance and faith in her messiah as of yet. Israel's national redemption process will not begin UNTIL the body of Christ has been made complete ( The fullness of the Gentile Church / Rom. 11:25,26 ).
The 1rst Pentecost at Mount Sinai encounter - God speaks to the nation of Israel and gives them the "written law" of God. There at Mount Sinai God betrothed Israel. But Israel later forsakes and divorces the Lord.
Jeremiah 3:8......"And I saw that for all the adulteries of faithless Israel, I had sent her away and given her a writ of divorce, yet her treacherous sister Judah did not fear; but she went and was a harlot also.
The 2nd Pentecost Acts 2 encounter - God for the "2nd time" speaks to the nation of Israel through the mouth of the Apostle Peter, but national Israel does not hear nor repent nationally on this Pentecost either. Therefore her national redemption and betrothal unto the Lord does not come, but instead is put on hold until a future time.
Israel's "3rd" Pentecost encounter - To me this is such a plausible scenario which is not out of the realm of possibility.
If the Rapture of the Church happens to take place this year ( or a year yet future ) by the 49th Barley Omer ( ? ), then this would be Israel's "3rd Pentecost" encounter with God who would be speaking directly to them once again just like He did at Mount Sinai and on the day of Pentecost in Acts chapter 2. And so I believe that the "Rapture event" is what God is going to use to get Israel's undivided attention this time like never before on any other Pentecost festival of the past.
It makes every bit of sense to me that Pentecost could very well be the time when God will begin the final "redemption process" for His chosen people Israel. This festival begins the "wheat harvest" which is a picture of the "End of the age" ( the coming 7 year tribulation period ). The number ( 3 ) in Bible Mathematics stands for.."Resurrection, Divine Completeness and Perfection."

Revisiting the 49 Omers
( By Tom Gaston )
It is said that no one really knows for sure what the 49 Omers represent, not even the Rabbis! Therefore I am going to give you my "opinion" of what I think they might possibly mean, and what they might be indicating?
There are 49 Barley Omers or 49 days which is a period of "seven weeks " ( or seven sabbaths - Lev. 23:15 ). That's why Pentecost is called the "feast of weeks." The first Barley Omer is the very day of first fruits ( Christ arose ). These 49 Omers are all Barley Omers which lead to the very day of Pentecost ( day 50 ). The "barley" represents the Church, and the wheat represents the "End of the age" which commences after the Church has been completed.
The "End of the age" mentioned in Matt. 24:3 is in reference to Dan. 70th week / tribulation period which Jesus is outlining and revealing to His disciples. The members of the body of Christ will not partake in any of the seven years of the tribulation period and its judgments since the Church is not appointed unto any wrath of God whatsoever ( Rom. 5:9; 1Thess. 1:10, 5:9 ). This seven year period has been prophesied for National Israel and the holy city of Jerusalem ( Dan. 9:24 - 27 ). The Church is nowhere in view in this prophecy. The Church is already righteous and in right standing before God spiritually speaking, but Israel on the otherhand is NOT yet redeemed and saved. Israel has yet to be brought to national repentance and salvation by God who will bring them through His judgments in order to purify the sons of Israel ( Mal. 3:2 - 12 ).
I now want to show you some interesting gematria here.
ע ו מ ר
200 40 6 70 / total = 316.......This is the same gematria value for Christ.
י ש ו
6 300 10 / total = 316
[...And the- 49th...]
ו ה מ ט
9 40 5 6 / total = 60........This is the gematria value for..."The Bride."
ה כ ל ה
5 30 20 5 / total = 60
ע ו מ ר
200 40 6 70 / total = 316
Now if we add the gematria value of "Omer" to the number 60 ( The Bride ), then we get the sum of 376 which is the value for the term Barley.
The Bride = 60 + 316 Omer ( or Christ = 316 ) = 376 Barley
ש ע ו
6 70 300 / total = 376
There are 49 Omers and day 50 which is Pentecost. I decided to do the following with these two numbers. The Hebrew gematria value for the term "Resurrection = 433."
49 x 50 = 2450.............2017 + 433 Resurrection = 2450
I believe that these 49 omers were not only a countdown to the "inception" or beginning of the Church which was all Jewish in the beginning on the very day of Pentecost ( Acts 2 ), but I also believe that these 49 Omers could also represent the "End of the Church age of grace" since the Barley represents the Church, and the Barley harvest itself represent the conclusion and completion of the Church age ( The fullness of the Gentiles...Rom. 11:25,26 ).
In Acts chapter 2 the Church was all Jewish. The Gentiles didn't come into the Church until a number of years later down the road in Acts chapter 10 ( The house of Cornelius ). So it is very interesting to note that though the Church at its beginning or "inception" on the day of Pentecost was all Jewish, yet at the "conclusion" ( at the completion of the Church / Church age of grace ) The Church and its members will be predominately Gentile in number. The Jewish messianic believers today within the body of Christ are very small in number compared to the overwhelming number of Gentiles which make up probably 99.9 % of the members of the body of Christ today.
I believe therefore that it is possible that these 49 Barley Omers represent the "period of time" between "Christ's resurrection" ( the first omer / first fruits ).......to.......... "the resurrection / Rapture of the Church." And so if these 49 Omers represent the END of the Church age, then the Church will NOT be here during the Wheat Harvest ( The "End of the age" / Matt. 24:3 - tribulation period ) which begins around the time of Pentecost. God, during the tribulation period is going to be separating the "wheat from the tares" during that time.
The "End of the age" which is mentioned by the disciples in Matt. 24:3 should NOT be confused with the "End of the Church age of grace" which concludes with the resurrection / rapture of the church. ( The fullnes of the Gentiles - Rom. 11:25,26 ). They are NOT one and the same time frame as they are two totally different dispensations of time which unfold in succession within God's prophetic program. The "dispensation of grace" has to END first before the "dispensation of God's wrath and divine judgment" can begin for unbelieving national Israel and the rest of the unbelieving Gentile world.
1Corinthians 15:23,24...."But each in his own order: Christ the first fruits, after that those who are Christ's at His coming ( the resurrection / rapture of the Church ), THEN comes the END when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power" ( This happens during the tribulation period ).
Here is a diagram below.
From "Christ's resurrection" ( first Omer / first fruits ).......to....... "the resurrection / Rapture of the Church" ( 49th Omer ). So let me lay out this Scripture above in 1Corinthians 15:23,24 ) in the order that it unfolds.
1Corinthians 15:23,24.....But each in his own order. Christ the first fruits / 1rst Omer 2 - 3 - 4 - 5 - 6 - 7 - 8 - 9 - 10 - 11 - 12 - 13 - 14 - 15 - 16 - 17 - 18 - 19 - 20 - 21 - 22 - 23 - 24 - 25 - 26 - 27 - 28 - 29 - 30 - 31 - 32 - 33 - 34 - 35 - 36 - 37 - 38 - 39 - 40 - 41 - 42 - 43 - 44 - 45 - 46 - 47 - 48 - 49th Omer ( Rapture ). Then Pentecost - day 50 ( wheat harvest begins )......THEN comes THE END, when He hands over the kingdom to the God and Father, when He has abolished all rule and all authority and power" ( is accomplished during the seven year tribulation period ).
So what I am trying to show here is this. Since barley and the barley harvest represents the Church ( book of Ruth ), then these 49 Omers ( in my opinion ) could very well be representing the "time" between Christ's resurrection which is the First fruits / first Omer..........to............the completion / resurrection - Rapture of the Church on the 49th Omer in a future year just prior to the day of Pentecost, at which time God would "once again" speak to and address the nation of Israel just like He did on the day of Pentecost in Acts chapter 2 by the mouth of the Apostle Peter when the Church was birthed, and of which was "all Jewish" in the beginning.
Therefore God and His prophetic program for national Israel could very well be "restarted" once again on the very day of Pentecost in a future year "following" the Rapture of the Church which had just taken place on the 49th Omer the day before on the eve of Pentecost. And so the "span of time" between the first omer ( Christ's resurrection ) to the 49th Omer ( the resurrection / Rapture of the Church yet future ) is what I believe these 49 barley Omers could possibly be representing. And for the resurrection / Rapture of the Church to take place on the day before Pentecost" would be a perfect time for God to speak once again to unbelieving national Israel just like He did through the mouth of the Apostle Peter on Pentecost at the beginning in Acts chapter 2. The "wheat harvest" which begins at Pentecost is a propehtic picture of the "End of the age" which begins with the seven year tribulation period. God will be separating the "wheat" ( believers ) from the "tares" ( unbelievers ) at that time.
Quote: A tribulum was a Roman tool for threshing wheat. It was probably pulled by oxen. They are still in use in some remote rural areas of the world today....( end quote ).
The instrument called the "tribulum" was used for the "Wheat harvest", but NOT for the "Barley harvest." The Barley is softer and does not need to be exposed to this rigorous "wheat harvesting tool " which "bends over, breaks down, and crushes the wheat stalks so they can be harvested.
The "body of Christ" has already believed in the Messiah and therefore does NOT need to be "bent over, beaten down, crushed, and humbled" like the wheat in order to come to faith in the Messiah because the Church has already been redeemed by faith in Yeshua. But unbelieving Israel and those who are left behind at the time of the Rapture will have to experience God's divine judgments which this device called the "tribulum" represents. As a matter of fact this is where we get the term "tribulation" from.
In order for God to bring unbelieving national Israel and other the gentiles to "repentance and faith" in the Messiah, then He has to pour out His divine judgments and wrath upon these unbelieving Jews and Gentiles which will "bend them over, beat them down, and crush them" in order to humble them in "spirit" and bring them to true repentance and salvation in the Messiah. Once again the 21 judgments of Revelation ( the end of the age ) are going to bring about the separation of the wheat from the tares."
The festival of weeks / Pentecost is going to come "full circle" when the Church is completed ( perhaps by the 49th Omer in some future year? ). And once again on the day of Pentecost in Acts chapter 2 the Church which was birthed was all Jewish. The Gentiles were not acccepted and added in to the Church until much later in Acts chapter 10.
By the way, when you start counting the 49 Omers starting with Easter this year which was the "first omer" ( First fruits ), then the 50th day ( Pentecost ) lands on June 3rd which is the Jewish date of the 10th Sivan. And just this morning on Good Morning America the ticker tape at the bottom of the screen said that..."Mahmoud Abbas ( head of the PLO ) is going to be in Washington to meet with Donald Trump on June 3rd. I thought that this was rather interesting!
I really believe that the Rapture could possibly take place on the 49th Omer?
In Christ, Tom Gaston
