We have another important day—not actually a holiday—that pictures Christ’s first ascension to heaven. It is called the wave sheaf.
“And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying, speak unto the children of Israel, and say unto them, when ye be come into the land which I give unto you, and shall reap the harvest thereof, then ye shall bring a sheaf of the firstfruits of your harvest unto the priest: And he shall wave the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted for you: On the morrow after the sabbath the priest shall wave it.” (Lev. 23:9–11)
A sheaf is a bundle of grain stalks with the grain attached. God is speaking of the annual Sabbath, the seventh day after Passover. This does not represent the resurrection, but rather the first ascension of Christ. He represents the first fruits of God’s harvest of souls from earth.
