Israel walked about 307 miles, 7.5 days, (495 kilometers), from Avaris in Egypt to Nuweibaa, at the Red Sea, and here is the proof of how they did it!
We see lots of movies and documentaries and writings about Moses and the Israelite’s and Pharaoh and the Red Sea and those things are pretty much endless. We also see documentaries about Mt Sinai being discovered in Arabia and they have pictures that absolutely prove Mt Sinai is there and that the rock Moses split in Horeb is there also.
But how did they get there?
You NEVER see anyone explain it but today is probably the first time in history that you will know what they did and how they got to the Red Sea!
The Bible tells us Moses led the Israelite’s and Gentiles (mixed multitude) out of Egypt on the morning of Passover, with unleavened bread dough in bowls on their shoulders, and they walked to Succoth where they baked UNLEAVENED BREAD CAKES.
YHVH had the Israelite’s and Gentiles mixed multitude eat NOTHING but UNLEAVED BREAD CAKES for 7+ days. That is what our Father DID.
In Exodus, not many scriptures pass and they are at the Red Sea and blocked from leaving, by Pharaoh and the Egyptian Army.
But how did they get there?
Since we know where Mt Sinai is in Arabia, by this book, and others as well as various documentaries which show us these things then where the Rea Sea crossing is located becomes easier:
And most people are now aware that Ron Wyatt and others have taken pictures of some of Pharaoh’s chariots and army bones and horse bones at the bottom of the Red Sea:
But how did the Israelite’s get to the Red Sea? Come and SEE!
We know the Israelite’s lived in the Land of Goshen in Egypt and where it is. We also are pretty sure archaeologists have discovered Avaris where Joseph lived and they discovered a small pyramid tomb there they believe Joseph’s bones were located:
See this short video:
There are 2 routes historians propose the Israelite’s used to get to the Red Sea crossing. The first route is crossing the desert in the middle of the Sinai Peninsula then taking a South route through the mountains to Nuweibaa then crossing the Red Sea there. The second proposition take the Israelite’s South, along the Eastern side of the Gulf of Suez to just past Sharm El-Sheikh where they cross over where the Gulf of Aqaba and the Red Sea join.
I dismiss the second theory because it is a longer route and makes this verse, about Israel having wilderness on both sides, NOT TRUE :
Exodus 14:3 For Pharaoh will say of the children of Israel, ‘They are bewildered by the land; the wilderness has closed them in.
I dismiss the first theory because Israel and the Gentile mixed multitude would have had hard times crossing the desert in the North route on the Sinai Peninsula and it would have been hotter with blowing sand and no water.
My route, provides Spring’s rain runoff flowing through creeks from the mountains along the Gulf of Suez as well as some mountain streams crossing inland to Nuweibaa. There would have been plenty of water to drink and slightly higher altitudes which were slightly cooler.
As I write this on a Sunday early afternoon, the temperature is 83F in Nuweibaa and 66F at St. Catherine’s, in The Sinai Peninsula, where the fake Mt Sinai is. At Suez it is 70F and at Faqus it is 64F and at Abu Zenima it is 79F. What a beautiful 4 days to cross over the hills of Southern Sinai in early April from Nissan 18 to Nissan 21!!
So, in this depiction/theory, I locate points on the map or in some cases split a distance over 2 to 4 days and give you a very, very plausible, doable, fun WALK from Egypt to the Red Sea at Nuweibaa in the Sinai Peninsula.
I placed all these calculation on a spreadsheet for you to see:
If you want a copy of this spreadsheet you can copy to your Google Sheets or download to Excel here:
All you have to do is go to a treadmill like I did yesterday and see these walking times/mph are very doable.
Yes, these are some VERY LONG walking times at an easy pace!
The Scripture tells us they walked during the day and during the night and camped 3 times, in Succoth, then somewhere in the middle, and at the end of the walk (in Nuweibaa), by the Red Sea.
You are no doubt thinking you cannot walk 12, 16, 18, or 24 hours in a day.
YES YOU CAN – IF you are in forced slavery/bondage in ancient Egypt and you walk all day long 12 hours or more a day making bricks and building everything Pharaoh desires. You are in tremendously great shape and condition unlike most of us in modern times these days.
How do I personally know they could walk 24, 48, or 64 hours straight?
I used to be a Database Administrator for a Fortune 500 company and there was once an occasion where we had serious new installation emergencies and deadlines and I had to work 72 hours straight, once, with only maybe a hour nap during the stretch. That sounds a bit like slavery doesn’t it? But I pushed my body and mind to its limits, plus the time spent driving to work starting the 3 days and driving home to crash for a full day as well afterwards. During this 3 day stretch I was sitting most of the time and believe me walking is much much easier to do, if your feet are in shape like those ancient Israelite’s were!
Beyond the walking are the issues of food and water.
YHVH orchestrated the Passover and 7 Days of Unleavened Bread so that those Israelite’s and Gentile mixed multitude would only have a few minutes to prepare unleavened bread dough, pack a few belongings and leave in a BIG HURRY.
So they walked from dawn till sundown to Succoth with bowls of unleavened bread dough on their shoulders, bound in clothing in order to keep the dough from the air and leavening just as Commanded. In Succoth, they made UNLEAVENED BREAD CAKES from the dough.
Like them, we in this house eat nothing but UNLEAVENED BREAD CAKES for the duration of the 7 Days of Unleavened Bread. We do this for a variety of reasons.
- It is commanded by YHVH to eat nothing but unleavened bread for 7 days. If you are thinking it is not specifically written as such then see this short article that proves what I say is true:
That article shows you the Commandment of Leviticus 23:14 is very direct in stating how long and exactly what we are to eat, NOTHING BUT UNLEAVENED BREAD for 7 days.
- We have found, in this house, that UNLEAVENED BREAD CAKES are VERY sustaining! You do not have to eat much to be full because they are very heavy and nutritious. Just a few bites and you are full for hours and hours. The Israelite’s were walking and that is exercise but exercise is also an appetite suppressant. Often times I find myself missing meals because I am not hungry. Almost 100% of what they ate would have been consumed by their bodies and about all they might have needed was an occasional pee break or to refill water flasks at the many Spring streams coming from the mountains or in the mountains.
- A MAJOR BENEFIT of eating ONLY UNLEAVENED BREAD CAKES for the 7 days is transforming your mind into a mind that is always ready to DO what YHVH says to DO and when YHVH says to DO IT.
- A FINAL BENEFIT is putting your body in the place of the Israelite’s and gaining vast insight into what they accomplished as YHVH and Moses led them 307 miles in 7.5 days to the Red Sea and to cross the Red Sea on FirstFruits on the 8th Day.
In this article, I have proven FirstFruits is on the 8th Day.
FirstFruits is ALWAYS on the 8th Day, or the day after the 7th Day of the 7 Day Feast Of Unleavened Bread. Always.
For Judaism doubters, you need to read the proofs and DO NOT ALLOW pretentious Rabbi’s to lead you astray by placing FirstFruits the day after the 1st Day of the 7 Days of Unleavened Bread or after the Weekly Sabbath. There is no weekly Sabbath in Leviticus 23 and we are counting weeks of 7 days not weekly Sabbaths. Both of those beliefs destroy the written Commandment of eating nothing but unleavened bread for 7 days and Leviticus 23:14 proves the Commandment is nothing but unleavened bread for 7 days: https://thechurchofacts.com/2017/05/29/when-shavuot-is-fully-come/ The logic is inescapable. Stop letting wayward Rabbi’s come between you and obeying Psalms 1:1-3 and having a true relationship with YHVH/Elohim by obeying His Written Word and stop getting confused with all Judaism’s added rules and regulations that mess up lives and families and are contrary to YHVH’s written Word/LAW.
For Messianic and Christian doubters, all you have to do is go to John 20 and read these verses:
26 And AFTER EIGHT DAYS, His disciples were again inside, and Thomas with them. Yeshua came, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, “Peace to you!” 27 Then He said to Thomas, “Reach your finger here, and look at My hands; and reach your hand here, and put it into My side. Do not be unbelieving, but believing.
FirstFruits is NOT on the day Yeshua resurrected? Absolutely NOT. It is very obvious that Yeshua spends quite some time visiting people in various places for a while after he has resurrected from the dead. He tells them not to touch him as he has not ascended to YHVH:
17 Yeshua said to her, “Do not cling to Me, for I have not yet ascended to My Father; but go to My brethren and say to them, ‘I am ascending to My Father and your Father, and to My God and your God.
Yeshua is VERY careful not to be touched for a very good reason.
The 8th Day begins at sunset after the 7th Day. At that time, Yeshua ascends to the Father, YHVH, Yeshua’s God/Elohim and our God/Elohim and there he is the wave sheaf offering of the harvest and is the firstfruits and all the duties of the Levitical High Priest and Levite’s Duties are transferred to him to keep PEREFECTLY and Yeshua is given all power and authority in heaven and on the earth.
Then Yeshua returns to the earth and tells Thomas to TOUCH HIM !!!
Yeshua is a special kind of firstfruits on the Day of FirstFruits.
1 Corinthians 15:23
23 But each one in his own order: Messiah/Christ (Torah) the firstfruits, afterward those who are Messiah’s at His coming.
There, I have just set straight and proved beyond all doubt any future question of when FirstFruits really IS and WHY it is ALWAYS on the 8th Day.
FirstFruits in 2018 begins at sundown on 4/8/2018 and ends at sundown on 4/9/2018.
It was ALWAYS the morning of the 8th Day when, all those keeping Passover and the 7 Days of Unleavened Bread, the people, left Jerusalem or the Tabernacle. ALWAYS.
Whether you are in Jerusalem for Passover/Unleavened Bread or for Sukkot/Taberncales, there is ALWAYS an 8th Day.
The 8th Day Sabbath of Sukkot represents the Jeremiah 31:31-34 New Covenant also known in the book of Revelation as the New Jerusalem.
The books of Jeremiah 30 & 31 make it abundantly clear that the Jeremiah 31:31-34 New Covenant comes AFTER The Judgment in the Jeremiah 31:29-30 verses.
Yeshua did not in any way, shape, or form set up the Jeremiah 31:31-34 New Covenant because verse 34 says “AFTER THOSE DAYS”!
And “THOSE DAYS” are found in Jeremiah 30 and Jeremiah 31:1-28 and show us that ALL Israel’s Tribes must be returned to the Land of Israel BEFORE The Judgment in verses 29-30 The Scripture goes to great lengths to show us the timing of the New Covenant and it is FAR, FAR, FAR in the future from now.
And verse Jeremiah 31:33 says AFTER THOSE DAYS which means ALL those things must have come to pass BEFORE YHVH makes His New Covenant available to man, who must endure The Judgment of those who have eaten the SOUR GRAPES!
We are not even yet close to the New Covenant as only a very small part of the Tribe of Judah has returned to the Land. All 13 Tribes of Israel WILL RETURN to the Land and they will be judged, those who have eaten the sour grapes, Jeremiah 31:29-30 and Isaiah 18:5 and Ezekiel 18:2
That is the way things were,
That is the way things are,
And that is the way things shall be,
