Exodus Chapter 14 Star Chart: Clockwise from when "Pharaoh (Hercules) will (red radius) say of the (Gemini) children of Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in" (14:1-3) till "I will (red radius) harden (Cetus) Pharaoh's (lunar) heart, that he shall (red radius) follow after them and I will be honoured upon (Cepheus) Pharaoh, and upon all his (Gemini) host" (14:4) is 150° hours later or 6 days later (150/24 = 6.25) till they arrive on the red radius line Nuweiba Beach and are drowned. The defeat of the Egyptian army may therefore have occurred on the seventh day of Unleavened Bread -- Nisan 21st.

From when "it was (red radius line) told (Ophiuchus tells Hercules) the king of Egypt that the (Gemini) people fled" (14:5) on Nisan 15th, 1446 B.C., till "the Lord hardened the (lunar) heart of (Cepheus) Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the (Gemini) children of Israel" (14:6-8) to Nuweiba Beach is 150° hours later, or 6 days later, to the lunar heart of Cetus. Then "the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) Egyptians pursued after them, all the (Taurus) horses and (red radius line) chariots of (Cepheus) Pharaoh, and his (Perseus and Auriga) horsemen, and his (Gemini) army and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon" (14:9). Gemini-Israel is sitting on Nuweiba Beach.

"And the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) children of Israel (red radius) cried out unto the (fiery) Lord" (14:10) 150° seconds later.

Then "the (fiery) Lord said unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, that they go forward (through the sea): But lift thou (Castor) up thy (red radius) rod, and stretch out thine (Castor) hand over the (red radius) sea, and (red radius) divide it: and the (Gemini) children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the (red radius) sea" (14:15-16) is 210° seconds. Then "I will harden the (lunar) hearts of the (Perseus and Gemini) Egyptians, and they shall follow them" (14:17) is 360° or 12 hours later at sunrise.

"And the (fiery) angel of God, which went before the camp of (Gemini) Israel, removed and (red radius) went behind them; and the (Milky Way) pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them" (14:19) which is 180° seconds.

"And it came between the (lunar) camp of the (Cepheus, Perseus) Egyptians and the camp of (Gemini) Israel; and it was a (Milky Way) cloud and (black Zodiac) darkness to them, but it gave (solar) light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night" (14:20) is 360° or 12 hours. If every Israelite could run a 7-minute mile, then the 8-mile distance to Arabia could have been jogged in 56 minutes per person. Egypt didn't pursue till morning (14:20).

"And Moses (Castor) stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the (red radius) sea to go back by a strong east (Milky Way) wind all that night (360° or 12 hours), and made the sea dry land, and the waters were (red radius 60°) divided" (14:21). "And the (Gemini) children of Israel went into the midst of the (red radius) sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a (red radius) wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left" (14:22) starting at about 6 p.m.

"And the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh's (Taurus and Aries) horses, his (red radius) chariots, and his (Perseus-Auriga) horsemen" (14:23) is 360° later or 12 hours later at sunrise.

"And it came to pass, that in the (sun on red radius horizon) morning watch (6 a.m.) the Lord (lunar eyeballs) looked unto the host of the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) Egyptians through the (solar) pillar of fire and of the (Milky Way) cloud, and (red radius) troubled the host of the Egyptians" (14:24). "And took off their (lunar) chariot wheels" (14:25) (6 a.m. + 150° seconds and + 210° seconds) "And the Lord said unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, Stretch out thine (Castor) hand over the (red radius) sea, that the waters may come again upon the (Gemini) Egyptians, upon their (red radius) chariots, and upon their (Perseus-Auriga) horsemen. And (Castor) Moses stretched forth his hand over the (red radius) sea, and the (red radius) sea returned to his strength when the (sun on red radius horizon -- 6 a.m. + 360° seconds) morning appeared; and the (Ophiuchus-Hercules) Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea" (14:26-27) at sunrise of the 21st Nisan 1446 B.C. And the waters returned, and covered the (red radius line) chariots, and the (Perseus-Taurus) horsemen, and all the (Gemini) host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them" (14:28).

 

 

Egyptian Army Drowned At Sunrise On Last Day
of Unleavened Bread

14:1 And the (fiery) Lord spake unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, saying,

2 Speak unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, that they turn and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baalzephon: before it shall ye encamp by the sea.

3 For Pharaoh (Hercules) will say of the (Gemini) children of Israel, They are entangled in the land, the wilderness hath shut them in.

4 And I will (red radius) harden (Cepheus) Pharaoh's (lunar) heart, that he shall (red radius) follow after them; and I will be honoured upon (Cepheus) Pharaoh, and upon all his (Gemini) host; that the (Gemini) Egyptians may know that I am the Lord. And they (Ophiuchus and Hercules) did so.

5 And it was told the (Cepheus) king of Egypt that the (Gemini) people fled: and the (lunar) heart of Pharaoh and of his (Ophiuchus and Hercules) servants was turned against the (Gemini) people, and they said, Why have we done this, that we have let (Gemini) Israel go from serving us?

6 And he made ready his (red radius line) chariot (with lunar wheels), and took his (Gemini) people with him:

7 And he took six hundred chosen (red radius line) chariots, and all the (red radius line) chariots of Egypt, and (Gemini) captains over every one of them.

8 And the Lord hardened the (lunar) heart of (Cepheus) Pharaoh king of Egypt, and he pursued after the (Gemini) children of Israel: and the (Gemini) children of Israel went out with an high (Castor, Perseus, Hercules, Cepheus) hand.

9 But the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) Egyptians pursued after them, all the (Taurus) horses and (red radius line) chariots of (Cepheus) Pharaoh, and his (Perseus) horsemen, and his (Gemini) army, and overtook them encamping by the sea, beside Pihahiroth, before Baalzephon.





10 And when Pharaoh (Cepheus) drew nigh, the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) children of Israel lifted up their (lunar) eyes, and, behold, the (Gemini) Egyptians marched after them; and they were sore afraid: and the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) children of Israel (red radius) cried out unto the (fiery) Lord.

11 And they (Ophiuchus and Hercules) said unto Moses, Because there were no graves in Egypt, hast thou taken us away to die in the wilderness? wherefore hast thou dealt thus with us, to carry us forth out of Egypt?

12 Is not this the word that we did tell thee in Egypt, saying, Let us alone, that we may serve the (Gemini) Egyptians? For it had been better for us to serve the (Gemini) Egyptians, than that we should die in the wilderness.

13 And Moses (Ophiuchus) said unto the (Gemini) people, Fear ye not, stand still, and see the salvation of the Lord, which he will shew to you to day: for the (Gemini) Egyptians whom ye have (lunar eyerballs) seen to day, ye shall (lunar eyeballs) see them again no more for ever.

14 The Lord shall fight for you, and ye shall hold your peace.

15 And the (fiery) Lord said unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, Wherefore criest thou unto me? speak unto the (Gemini) children of Israel, that they go forward:

16 But lift thou (Castor) up thy (red radius) rod, and stretch out thine (Castor) hand over the (red radius) sea, and (red radius) divide it: and the (Gemini) children of Israel shall go on dry ground through the midst of the (red radius) sea.

17 And I, behold, I will harden the (lunar) hearts of the (Perseus and Gemini) Egyptians, and they shall follow them: and I will get me honour upon (Cepheus) Pharaoh, and upon all his (Gemini) host, upon his (red radius) chariots, and upon his (Perseus-Taurus) horsemen.

18 And the (Gemini) Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I have gotten me honour upon (Cepheus) Pharaoh, upon his (red radius) chariots, and upon his (Perseus-Taurus) horsemen.

19 And the (fiery) angel of God, which went before the camp of (Gemini) Israel, removed and (red radius) went behind them; and the (Milky Way) pillar of the cloud went from before their face, and stood behind them:

20 And it came between the camp of the (Opniuchus and Hercules) Egyptians and the camp of (Gemini) Israel; and it was a (Milky Way) cloud and (black Zodiac) darkness to them, but it gave (solar) light by night to these: so that the one came not near the other all the night.

21 And Moses (Castor) stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the (red radius) sea to go back by a strong east (Milky Way) wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were (red radius) divided.

22 And the (Gemini) children of Israel went into the midst of the (red radius) sea upon the dry ground: and the waters were a (red radius) wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

23 And the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) Egyptians pursued, and went in after them to the midst of the sea, even all Pharaoh's (Taurus and Aries) horses, his (red radius) chariots, and his (Perseus-Taurus) horsemen.

24 And it came to pass, that in the (sun on red radius horizon) morning watch the Lord (lunar eyeballs) looked unto the host of the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) Egyptians through the (solar) pillar of fire and of the (Milky Way) cloud, and troubled the host of the Egyptians,

25 And took off their (lunar) chariot wheels, that they drave them heavily: so that the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) Egyptians said, Let us flee from the face of (Gemini) Israel; for the (fiery) Lord fighteth for them against the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) Egyptians.

26 And the (glorious) Lord said unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, Stretch out thine (Castor) hand over the (red radius) sea, that the waters may come again upon the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) Egyptians, upon their (red radius) chariots, and upon their (Perseus-Taurus) horsemen.

27 And (Castor) Moses stretched forth his hand over the (red radius) sea, and the sea returned to his strength when the (sun on red radius horizon) morning appeared; and the (Ophiuchus-Hercules) Egyptians fled against it; and the Lord overthrew the Egyptians in the midst of the sea.

28 And the waters returned, and covered the (red radius line) chariots, and the (Perseus-Taurus) horsemen, and all the (Gemini) host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them; there remained not so much as one of them.

29 But the (Gemini) children of Israel (red radius) walked upon dry land in the midst of the (red radius) sea; and the waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and on their left.

30 Thus the (radiant) Lord saved (Gemini) Israel that day out of the hand of the (Ophiuchus-Hercules) Egyptians; and Israel (lunar eyeballs) saw the (Perseus, Auriga, Orion) Egyptians dead upon the (red radius Neweiba Beach) sea shore.

31 And Israel (lunar eyeballs) saw that great work which the Lord did upon the Egyptians: and the (Gemini) people feared the Lord, and believed the Lord, and his servant (Ophiuchus) Moses.

Egyptian Army Destroyed On Last Day Of Unleavened Bread

Moses continued to use the civil calendar with its fall to fall reckoning (Ps.81:3-6) but now began a religious calendar as well. Notice that Exodus 13:3 says, "Remember this day (Thursday -- Ex. 19:1), in which ye came out of Egypt." Israel went out by night (Deut.16:1) "from Rameses to Succoth" (Ex.12:37) on "the fifteenth day of the first month" (Num.33:3; cp. Ex.12:17). "And they took their journey from Succoth and encamped in Etham, in the edge of the wilderness" (Ex.13:20; cp. Num.33:6), a Friday. In Exodus 14:2, the Israelites were told to "turn and encamp before Pihahiroth, between Migdol and the sea, over against Baal-zephon." This was the Sabbath sermon from God himself instructing them on what to do the very next day. But they didn't travel on the Sabbath, Abib 17. On Sunday, Abib 18, "they removed from Etham, and turned again unto Pihahiroth, which is before Baal-zephon: and they pitched before Migdol" (Num.33:7; cp. Ex.14:9). After the Israelites had taken these "THREE days' journey into the wilderness" (Ex.3:18; 5:3; 8:27) which correspond to "the THIRD day" of Isaac (Gen.22:4) and Esther's THREE-day fast (Esther 4:16) and God speaking 10 commandments to Moses the THIRD day (Ex.19:16) and Joshua leading Israel into the promised land the THIRD day (Josh.1:11; 3:2; Hos.6:2) and Christ's THREE days and THREE nights in the tomb, and had begun sacrificing to the Eternal, Pharaoh felt he had done his duty (Ant.2:15:3) and heard that Israel was "entangled in the land" (Ex.14:3-5) and pursued with "six hundred chosen chariots, and all the chariots of Egypt" (14:7) as well as "two hundred thousand footmen" (Ant. 2:15:3) which must have taken two full days to catch up. Monday and Tuesday, Abib 19 and 20, were spent in pursuit. Then all night long the Eternal kept the two camps apart (14:20) while the Israelites passed through the sea (14:21-22). The morning of the 21st of Abib, a Wednesday, witnessed the destruction of the Egyptian army.

Was Israel A Type Of Christ?

Just as ancient Israel took "THREE DAYS' journey into the wilderness" (Ex. 3:18; 5:3; 8:27) and then made an EXODUS FROM EGYPT victorious over her enemies, so Christ spent THREE DAYS and three nights in the earth (Matt. 12:39-40) and then was RESURRECTED victorious FROM THE TOMB. God called both Israel and Jesus out of Egypt (Hos. 11:1; Matt. 2:15). God REMOVED THE WHEELS of the Egyptian chariots where the Israelites had been temporarily "BURIED" in the watery "grave" (Rom. 6:4; Col. 2:12) just as he removed the STONE WHEEL of the tomb where Christ was BURIED. Just as the waters COVERED the Egyptian army, so the Holy Spirit COVERS our sins. Both were the FIRSTBORN of EGYPT (Hos. 11:1). Both were chosen on the TENTH day of the first month (Josh. 4:19; John 12:12-13). Then after they were safely across the Red Sea with the Egyptians destroyed, Israel held a worship service to God and sang a song (Ex.15:1-22) showing this day was one of the holy convocations. They now had the time to once again bake leavened bread.
