Exodus Chapter 16 Star Chart: Clockwise "from Elim ... the congregation of the (Ophiuchus-Hercules) children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt" (16:1) which is 30 days after coming our of Egypt or (30 x 12 =) 360°. when "the whole congregation of the (Hercules-Ophiuchus) children of Israel (red radius) murmured against (Castor) Moses and (Pollux) Aaron in the wilderness" (16:2) because of hunger (16:3) on Iyyar 15, 1446 B.C.

"Then said the (fiery) Lord unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, Behold, I will rain (lunar) bread from heaven for you; and the (Gemini) people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no. And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be (two lunar moons) twice as much as they gather daily" (16:4-5) is 360° seconds later.

"And it came to pass, that at even (sun on red radius horizon) the quails came up, and covered the camp" is 360° or 12 hours later (12 x 30 = 360). "And in the morning (sun on red radius horizon) the (lunar) dew lay round about the host" is 360° or 12 hours later (12 x 30 = 360) (16:13).

"And the (Gemini) children of Israel ... (red radius) gathered" (16:17) the small, round (16:14), white (16:31) Manna. And Moses (Ophiuchus) (red radius) said, Let no man leave of it till the (sun on red radius horizon) morning. Notwithstanding they (lunar ears) hearkened not unto (Ophiuchus) Moses; but some of them (Gemini) left of it until the (sun on red radius horizon) morning, and it bred (red radius) worms, and (red radius) stank: and Moses was wroth with them" (16:18-20) is 360° or one day. "And they (Gemini) gathered it every (sun on red radius horizon) morning, every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it (white, round lunar) (red radius) melted" (16:21) is 150°-210° or 5-7 hours later or 11 am to 1 pm if each hour is 30°.

"And it came to pass, that on the sixth day (360°/6 = 60°) they gathered twice as much bread, two (lunar) omers for one man (60°): and all the rulers (Ophiuchus and Hercules) of the congregation came and told (Castor) Moses" (16:22). "See, for that the Lord hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day (60°) the bread of two days (two lunar omers); abide ye every (Gemini) man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day" (16:29).

Christ is the "What is It?" Manna Bread
From Heaven So We Won't Die

16:1 And they took their journey from Elim, and all the congregation of the children of Israel came unto the wilderness of Sin, which is between Elim and Sinai, on the fifteenth day of the second month after their departing out of the land of Egypt.

2 And the whole congregation of the (Hercules-Ophiuchus) children of Israel (red radius) murmured against (Castor) Moses and (Pollux) Aaron in the wilderness:

3 And the (Hercules-Ophiuchus) children of Israel (red radius) said unto them, Would to God we had died by the hand of the (Castor) Lord in the land of Egypt, when we (Gemini) sat by the (lunar) flesh pots, and when we did eat (solar golden) bread to the full; for ye have brought us forth into this wilderness, to kill this whole assembly with hunger.

4 Then said the (fiery) Lord unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, Behold, I will rain (lunar) bread from heaven for you; and the (Gemini) people shall go out and gather a certain rate every day, that I may prove them, whether they will walk in my law, or no.

5 And it shall come to pass, that on the sixth day they shall prepare that which they bring in; and it shall be (two lunar moons) twice as much as they gather daily.

6 And Moses (Ophiuchus) and Aaron (Hercules) said unto all the (Gemini) children of Israel, At even (sun on red radius horizon), then ye shall know that the Lord hath brought you out from the land of Egypt:

7 And in the morning (sun on red radius horizon), then ye shall see the (fiery) glory of the Lord; for that he (lunar ears) heareth your (red radius) murmurings against the Lord: and what are we, that ye murmur against us?

8 And Moses (Ophiuchus) (red radius) said, This shall be, when the Lord shall give you in the (sun on red radius horizon) evening flesh to eat, and in the (sun on red radius horizon) morning (solar golden) bread to the full; for that the Lord (lunar ears) heareth your (red radius) murmurings which ye murmur against him: and what are we? your (red radius) murmurings are not against us (only), but against the Lord (also).

9 And Moses (Ophiuchus) spake unto Aaron (Hercules), Say unto all the congregation of the (Gemini) children of Israel, Come near before the Lord: for he hath (lunar ears) heard your (red radius) murmurings.

10 And it came to pass, as Aaron (Hercules) spake unto the whole congregation of the (Gemini) children of Israel, that they (lunar eyeballs) looked toward the wilderness, and, behold, the (solar) glory of the Lord appeared in the (Milky Way) cloud.

11 And the (fiery) Lord (red radius) spake unto Moses (Ophiuchus), saying,

12 I have (lunar ears) heard the (red radius) murmurings of the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) children of Israel: (red radius) speak unto them, saying, At even (sun on red radius horizon) ye shall eat (solar golden) flesh, and in the morning (sun on red radius horizon) ye shall be filled with (solar golden) bread; and ye shall know that I am the Lord your God.

13 And it came to pass, that at even (sun on red radius horizon) the quails came up, and covered the camp: and in the morning (sun on red radius horizon) the (lunar) dew lay round about the host.

14 And when the (lunar) dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small (lunar) round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground.

15 And when the (Gemini) children of Israel (lunar eyeballs) saw it, they (Ophiuchus and Hercules) (red radius) said one to another, It is manna ("What is it" -- NIV): for they wist not what it was. And Moses (Ophiuchus) (red radius) said unto them, This is the (lunar) bread which the (fiery) Lord hath given you to eat.

16 This is the thing which the (fiery) Lord hath (red radius) commanded, Gather of it every (Gemini) man according to his eating, an omer for every man, according to the number of your persons; take ye every man for them which are in his (red radius) tents.

17 And the (Gemini) children of Israel did so, and (red radius) gathered, some more, some less.

18 And when they did mete it with an omer, he that gathered much had nothing over, and he that gathered little had no lack; they gathered every man according to his eating.

19 And Moses (Ophiuchus) (red radius) said, Let no man leave of it till the morning.

20 Notwithstanding they (lunar ears) hearkened not unto (Ophiuchus) Moses; but some of them (Gemini) left of it until the (sun on red radius horizon) morning, and it bred (red radius) worms, and (red radius) stank: and Moses was wroth with them.

21 And they (Gemini) gathered it every (sun on red radius horizon) morning, every man according to his eating: and when the sun waxed hot, it (lunar) (red radius) melted.

22 And it came to pass, that on the sixth day they gathered twice as much bread, two (lunar) omers for one man: and all the rulers (Ophiuchus and Hercules) of the congregation came and told (Castor) Moses.

23 And he (Ophiuchus) (red radius) said unto them (Gemini), This is that which the Lord hath said, To morrow is the rest of the holy sabbath unto the Lord: bake that which ye will bake to day, and seethe that ye will seethe; and that which remaineth over lay up for you to be kept until the morning.

24 And they laid it up till the (sun on red radius horizon) morning, as Moses bade: and it did not stink, neither was there any (red radius) worm therein.

25 And Moses (red radius) said, Eat that to day; for to day is a sabbath unto the Lord: to day ye shall not find it in the field.

26 Six days ye shall gather it; but on the seventh day, which is the sabbath, in it there shall be none.

27 And it came to pass, that there went out some of the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) people on the seventh day for to gather, and they found none.

28 And the (glorious) Lord (red radius) said unto (Ophiuchus) Moses, How long refuse ye to keep my commandments and my laws?

29 See, for that the Lord hath given you the sabbath, therefore he giveth you on the sixth day (60°) the bread of two days (two lunar omers); abide ye every man in his place, let no man go out of his place on the seventh day.

30 So the (Gemini) people rested on the seventh day.

31 And the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) house of Israel called the name thereof Manna: and it was like coriander seed, (lunar) white; and the taste of it was like wafers made with (solar golden) honey.

32 And Moses (Ophiuchus) (red radius) said, This is the thing which the Lord commandeth, Fill an omer (lunar gibbous moon) of it to be kept for your (Gemini) generations; that they may (lunar eyeballs) see the (lunar) bread wherewith I have fed you (Ophiuchus and Hercules) in the wilderness, when I brought you forth from the land of Egypt.

33 And Moses (Ophiuchus) said unto Aaron (Hercules), Take a (lunar) pot, and put an omer full of manna therein (lunar moon), and lay it up before the Lord, to be kept for your generations.

34 As the (glorious) Lord (red radius) commanded Moses (Ophiuchus), so Aaron (Hercules) laid it up before the Testimony, to be kept.

35 And the (Ophiuchus and Hercules) children of Israel did eat (lunar white and round) manna forty years, until they came to a land inhabited; they did eat (lunar white and round) manna, until they came unto the (red radius) borders of the land of Canaan.

36 Now an omer is the tenth part of an ephah.
(An omer is 6 pints)

Is Manna A Type Of Christ?

If there were 2,000,000 Israelites and an omer is 6 pints, then the daily consumption of manna would be 12,000,000 pints or 9,000,000 pounds or 4,500 tons. Over 1,000,000 tons of Manna were gathered annually. This continued for 40 years.

1. Manna was free, undeserved, and unearned. No plowing, planting, weeding or watering."For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast" (Eph. 2:8-9).
2. Manna was white. This represents righteousness (Rev. 19:8). Our Lord lived a perfect sinless life and then was executed as a sacrifice for our sins, so we can live.
3. Manna was sweet like honey (16:31)."The law of the Lord is ... SWEETER also than honey" (Ps. 19:7-10).
4. It was gathered every day. Daily Bible study. Daily prayer.
5. Manna can't be stored for later. Truth must be acted upon and put into practice or it decomposes and stinks.
6. It was ground in a mill or broken in mortar, baked or boiled (Ex. 16:23; Nu. 11:8). Christ our Lord was bruised and broken for us.
7. It tasted like oil (Num. 11:8). Oil is the Holy Spirit.
8. Jesus was born in Bethlehem meaning "House of Bread."

"The bread of God is he who comes down from heaven and gives life to the world ... I am the bread of life; whoever comes to me shall not hunger" (John 6:32-35).
