How do jah people offer a wave offering? What is a wave offering? Does jah need to be waved at?
What bible translators have rendered as "wave offering" in the old testament is the Hebrew word:
H8573 תְּנוּפָה tnuwphah (ten-oo-faw') n-f.
1. a brandishing (in threat)
2. (by implication) tumult
3. specifically, the official undulation of sacrificial offerings
from H5130 נוּף nuwph (noof) v.
1. to quiver (i.e. vibrate up and down, or rock to and fro)
2. used in a great variety of applications (including sprinkling, beckoning, rubbing, bastinadoing, sawing, waving, etc.)
[a primitive root]
KJV: lift up, move, offer, perfume, send, shake, sift, strike, wave.
Brandishing is what wave offering means. To brandish is to wave a weapon in the air and create a tummult. It is to publically display one's power.
Examples of brandishing:
Jah people are to brandish our... weapon???
Yes, but our weapon is unlike anything depicted above. Jah people are to brandish jah's hand.

Isaiah 18:4 - Jah People Version
