Proper Circumcision

I have finally figured out the correct circumcision method that Torah prescribes. While any type of circumcision is acceptable, Torah actually gives us an example of how it can be done and what is the acceptable minimum.

Let's take a look:
YLT Ex 4:24 . And it cometh to pass in the way, in a lodging place, that Jehovah meeteth him, and seeketh to put him to death; 
YLT Ex 4:25 and Zipporah taketh a flint, and cutteth off the foreskin of her son, and causeth it to touch his feet, and saith,  'Surely a bridegroom of blood art thou to me;'
As you can see from this verse, Zipporah used a knife to circumcise her son. This means that she only did a partial circumcision and did not remove all foreskin but rather snipped the tip of the foreskin. This is because removal of all foreskin requires a surgery and can't be done with a knife. It would also be very painful. This is why Zipporah only cut the tip of the foreskin and touched Moses's feet with it.

Complete removal of the foreskin is simply unnecessary if you do not have any problems. So God gives as an example of what is the acceptable circumcision.

In fact, I have seen how they circumcise young boys in Africa and they do it also just with a knife. The procedure is extremely quick and relatively painless. They simply chop off the tip of the foreskin without even any anestesia or surgery.

God did not want us to suffer so He gave us the right to circumcise just the tip.

But like I said, ANY type of circumcision is acceptable because some people may need a full circumcision.However, the traditional method is to just remove the tip.

Six days thou shalt labor...

I wanted to elaborate a little bit why I consider 7th-day Shabbat (traditional Shabbat) incorrect.

I want to show you that the Shabbat definition itself proves to us that 7th-day Shabbat is wrong. So let's take a look:
CLV Ex 20:9 Six days shall you serve and do all your work, 
CLV Ex 20:10 yet the seventh day is a sabbath to Yahuah your Elohim. You shall not do any work, you, your son or your daughter, your servant or your maidservant, your bull, your donkey or your beast, or your sojourner who is within your gates.
What does this command imply? What does this command really prohibits and permits?

First of all, please notice that this commandment does not imply continuity (taamid). This commandment never says or implies that we are to work six days, then rest one, then work six days again then rest one, etc. It never says or implies that we are to do it continuously. It may imply temporary continuity but definitely not perpetual continuity because Torah would've mentioned it.

Secondly, this commandment never prohibits us from working less than six days or resting more than one day. You are not violating this commandment by doing this. For example, you are unemployed or you want to take an extra day off work.

So the only thing that this commandment clearly implies is that we are not to work more than six days and we are to rest at least one day if we worked for six days in a row.

In 7th-day Shabbat system, weeks are not connected to month and years. Which is why 7th-days Shabbat is clearly wrong.


 

Does Torah allow masturbation?

Does Torah allow one to masturbate? Yes, absolutely! In fact, Torah expects this to happen and gives us the commandments about it.

Let's take a look:
CLV Lv 15:16 A man, when an emission of semen comes forth from him, will bathe all his flesh in water and be unclean until the evening. 
CLV Lv 15:17 Every garment and all leather on which his emission of semen has come, he will rinse in water, and it will be unclean until the evening. 
CLV Lv 15:18 Also a woman with whom a man is lying with an emission of semen, they will both bathe in water and be unclean until the evening.
And here are more specific verses that deal with a specific case of the soldiers:
CLV Dt 23:10 In case there should be a man among you who is not clean because of a happening of the night, then he must go forth outside the camp; he shall not come into the midst of the camp. 
CLV Dt 23:11 When it comes to be just before evening he shall wash in water, and as the sun sets he may come into the midst of the camp.
So as you can see, commandments are very plain and clear. If you masturbate or if you have ejaculated at night, you are to bathe in water, wash your clothes and you are unclean until the evening. If you are a soldier and you are camping at the camp, you also can't come back to the camp until the sun sets.

So as you can see, masturbation is not only allowed but expected. The reason why God allows it is because God knows what it is like to be without a woman or that one can have thoughts and dreams that may make you ejaculate by accident. 

Please note that this is the ejaculation that makes you or your woman unclean. If you do not ejaculate then you are clean even if you had sex. And a woman can't get unclean from sex unless a man has ejaculated near or on/in her.

Also, masturbation is a method for both sexes to release sexual tensions, so it actually plays a very important role in Torah observant society. You are prohibited to have casual sex by the Torah because it is prostitution and sexual perversion, so you are expected to masturbate if you do not have a partner or if your partner is away.

Correct position of the rings/staves on the Ark of the Covenant and Table of Showbread

I have finally figured out where staves of the Ark and the Table should be positioned and the reason is very simple.

Here is the correct rendering of the Table and the staves:

As you can see, the staves on the Table of Showbread are supposed to be located along the long sides. 

This is because the Table was supposed to be placed next and along the Northern wall of the Tent of the Tabernacle so the staves would get in the way when the Table was carried in had they been located along the short sides.

Also, the Table was 1 cubit wide, which is similar to the width of the Altar of Incense which was also 1 cubit. So this means that the Table was carried by two people just like the Altar of Incense because 1 cubit width is equal to human shoulders width.

Same is true about the weight of the Table and Altar of Incense. They are about the same, which confirms that it was carried by only two people.

Same is with the Ark of the Covenant. The staves should be located along the long sides. This is because the Priest is said to stand between the Cherubim and had the staves been along the short sides, they would get in a way of the Priest when he was inside the Holy of Holies on Yom Kippur.

The only difference with the Ark is that its width was 1.5 cubits, which means that it would require four people to carry it because the width is more than human shoulders width. You can see the correct rendering of the Ark on my Tabernacle Images page.

What is Passover Matzot?

Since Passover is coming up soon, I wanted to explain to you what was the proper Passover Matzot.

I really hate current traditional Matzot very simply because I literally choke on it when I eat it more than several days. It is very tasty but it is very hard to eat for a week. In fact, this was the reason why I got suspicious about it. Why would God want to torture me and His people?

After checking the Torah, I have realized that the Torah never even implies that this is what we are to eat, so let's take a look at what Torah really says:
CLV Ex 12:39 They baked the dough which they brought forth from Egypt, unleavened ember cakes, for it was not leavened, for they were driven out of Egypt and they could not dally, and, moreover, they did not make provision for themselves.
As you can see, when Hebrews observed the Passover and left Mizraim, they were on the road so they did not and could not make proper bread. More so, they were required to eat unleavened bread for a week. So the bread they had to make was not only unleavened but it had to be something that they could easily make. So the bread they ate could only be something that can be cooked with campfire since they obviously did not have ovens or any bread making equipment.

The translation of what they ate is very unclear so let's take a look at the actual Hebrew text.

The word in question is עגת (ogt) which is obviously a form of bread since the type of bread is mentioned (unleavened). So all that we need to figure out is what form of bread OGT are. 

Please note that OGT is plural and the proper pronunciation of the form of bread is OG. So they ate OG or what Torah calls MTZUT OGT.

The closest words I found are עגל (calf - Ex 32:4), עגלת (tabernacle wagons - Numb 7:3) and עגיל (earring - Numb 31:50). So if you know Hebrew you would agree that it is actually pretty clear what OG means and it most certainly refers to something soft and round, which can only mean that the form of bread in question was also round, soft and flat. There is no word for this in English so here is the best picture I found. The bread on the picture is leavened but it looks very similar to unleavened one.

As you can see it was round, soft and flat. They most likely put oil in it too to make it soft and it had to be thick enough to remain soft but it also thin enough to be made quickly and without the oven on the road.

Most likely they put stones in a campfire and cooked these breads upon in.

So as you can see, this is what Passover/Feast of Unleavened Matzot really is. You definitely not going to choke on this. In fact, it is much more pleasant to eat than crackers.

Also, we can definitely say that OG couldn't have been cracker type matzot because there is a separate word for this in the Torah (רקיק - rkik - cracker type wafer).

I also need to point out that we are never commanded to eat OG for Passover and Feast of Unleavened. So we are not violating these holy days by eating crackers. But I personally find traditional matzot very unpleasant to eat for a week. And I recommend you to switch to this type of Matzot because this way you will be able to experience and remind yourself about the events of Exodus more fully.

P.S. It seems that they also ate OG in the desert and it was made out of Mann. See Numbers 11:8. Also, Torah does not say that they ate OG for actual Passover Seder before they left Mizraim.

Concentrate on THIS life, concentrate on YOUR life!

Concentrate on THIS life, concentrate on YOUR life!

This is the best advice I can give about life.

I already explained in my previous posts that there is no afterlife. In fact, God tells us in the very beginning of the Torah that we are dust and in the dust we shall return. So the most important thing to remember is that THIS life is ALL you ever going to have. So you should do everything possible to make your life better by being righteous. You should concentrate on THIS life.

And you should also concentrate on YOUR life. You should not get distracted by the lives of others. I know that it may seem that the world is unfair and evil, but this is just an elaborate illusion and you should not succumb to this illusion no matter how tempting it may be.

Remember, punishment for evil is evil or death. I am pretty sure you do not want that. So it is very important to stick to what you know and your own life. In our time this is especially true.

Torah says, also in the very beginning, that we are capable of resisting and dominating over sin and evil, so force yourself to be righteous. I know that this is extremely difficult in our time but I am pretty sure that you know that this is true.

Always remember that God is perfectly just. So justice will surely be served. So do not make matters worse by taking justice into your own hands.

Just walk your own walk and be righteous!



Self-evident transcendent logic

Every time I mention logic people seem to assume I am talking about the logic of Ancient Greece or the modern equivalent of the discipline. So I wanted to elaborate and try to explain what I mean.

First and foremost, my logic is based on the Torah so I am definitely not a fan of Greek philosophers even though they said many correct things.

Secondly, my logic can be described as self-evident and transcendent. For example, 2+2=4 or "thou shalt not murder" is most certainly self-evident and transcendent.

Last but not least, the reason why I use self-evident and transcendent logic is that it can't be denied unless you are crazy or dishonest.

So when you read my logical statements, they should also be self-evident and transcendent to you because I use self-evident and transcendent logical axioms to come to my conclusions.

Do not get me wrong, I do make mistakes. I am not saying I am always saying the absolute truth. But in many of my posts, this is exactly the case.

In fact, I often say such banal things that I wonder why most people do not get it and/or agree with me. My best guess is that many people can't admit when they are wrong, which is totally understandable but really sad.

What kind of bread is Showbread?

So what is the Showbread? What kind of bread is Showbread?

Let's take a look:
CLV Lv 24:5 You will take flour and bake of it twelve perforated cakes. Two tenths of an ephah shall there be for one perforated cake. 
CLV Lv 24:6 And you will place them in two arrays, six to the array, on the pure table before Yahweh. 
CLV Lv 24:7 You will put along each array clear frankincense, and it will be used instead of the bread as a memorial portion, a fire offering to Yahweh. 
CLV Lv 24:8 Sabbath day by sabbath day shall he arrange it before Yahweh regularly on behalf of the sons of Israel, an eonian covenant. 
CLV Lv 24:9 It will be for Aaron and for his sons, and they will eat it in a holy place, for it is a holy of holies for him from the fire offerings of Yahweh. It is an eonian statute.
Please also see additional verses: Exodus 29:2, 29:23, Lev 2:4, 7:12-13, 8:26, Numb 6:15, 6:19, 15:20.

So as you can see from all these verses, the Showbread is called Halah, which literally means sick or afflicted. Perhaps, this is because it is good to eat this bread when you are sick or afflicted. I also think that maybe Halah gets its name from its color (yellow) due to the addition of the eggs. Yellow is traditionally associated with sick or afflicted.

Secondly, Showbread was made with 2 Omers of flour (2/10 of Ephah) and included at least the oil and the eggs. Honey was probably added too. And it was baked in the oven.

Halah is a form of bread and it was essentially a flat cake, which means that it had a thickness of less than half of a traditional loaf. Here is the absolutely beautiful picture:


As you can see, this bread is soft and thin enough to be eaten with the forks which were commanded as the part of the Table of Showbread utensils.

The most interesting question is if the Showbread supposed to be leavened or unleavened because if you look at Leviticus 24:5 there is no indication which type of bread the Showbread supposed to be. In fact, from the cited verses we know that Halah can be leavened and unleavened. So which type was used for Showbread?

The answer is actually very simple.

First of all, we know for a fact that the bread was on the table for a whole week and was replaced with the new one each Shabbat. This means that the bread had to be unleavened because a leavened bread would not last a week on the table. It would get dry and would be inedible.

Secondly, the leavened bread would require some kind of covering to preserve it for a week. But we are never commanded such a thing and even if we assume that the bread was covered with individual lids, there is simply not enough space on the table to accommodate such arrangement.

Last but not least, we know for a fact that we are prohibited to eat leavened bread during Passover/Feast of the Unleavened and the Priests are no exception. Torah never says they were exempt. So this can only mean that the bread had to be unleavened.

So as you can clearly see that the Showbread is called by the Torah Unleavened Halah. The fact that Torah does not say "unleavened" is clearly because this word fell out of the description. I checked Kennicott and there were no manuscripts which show the type of bread either way, which means that this edit occurred in the 1st Temple period most likely.

We can't assume that they have interchanged the bread because Torah never says that and because of the issue of the preservation of the leavened bread for a week.

Leviticus 24:9 says that this bread is "from fire offerings", which also implies that the bread was unleavened because most offerings require unleavened Halah. Especially fire offerings.

Please note that we are very clearly commanded to put frankincense ON THE ROWS and NOT ON THE BREAD! Neither we are commanded any specific shape features for the bread. This means that there were no depressions in the bread to put frankincense in as tradition usually shows. And this means that frankincense was simply sprinkled all over the rows and as is. I think it was only on the Table and the dishes. Priests had to eat this bread to I do not think putting frankincence on the bread directly is a good idea. How would you eat it?

I hope now it is clear what Showbread is.

P.S. Here is an updated rendering of my Table of Showbread model:

Simple Unleavened Bread recipie

Passover is coming up soon so I wanted to give you a simple and correct unleavened recipie to try.

This recipie is actually for  things like Showbread or some of the slaughters and this bread is called by the Torah unleavened halah.

Halah literally means sick, ill or worn perhaps because this is what sick people may eat. See Genesis 48:1, Ex 15:26, 23:25 etc.

The key to making a successful loaf of unleavened bread is thickness of the loaf and inclusion of at least the eggs and oil. I think it is also possible to add honey to the bread, especially if you think that the bread is too hard for your taste.

In order to make the bread soft it needs to be as thin as possible so your loaf should be half-size of the regular loaf or less.

I found this recipie here so please visit the link to see the pictures.

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter or cooking oil
3 large eggs
1/2-cup water or milk
1 teaspoon salt

  1. Combine the dry ingredients (flour and salt) in a mixing bowl and mix them together.
  2. Beat together the eggs and oil, then add this mixture to the dry ingredient mixture.
  3. Add the milk, then beat the mixture for 2 to 3 minutes until it is relatively smooth.
  4. Pour the batter into three greased, 8-inch, square baking pans.
  5. Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes.

Tips:

To avoid sticking, use a cooking spray that contains flour or sprinkle flour in the pans after they have been sprayed. Do not use cooking spray that does not contain flour by itself, as this will cause the loaves to stick.

Check the bread frequently as it is baking. Over-baked unleavened bread becomes extremely hard and crumbly.

To add some different flavors to your unleavened bread, add 1/4 cup honey or a pound of cheddar, Colby or Pepper Jack cheese to the batter.

Exodus 21:7-11: Undeniable reason why we need Torah-based slavery

God permits and gives us the commandment that allows one to sell one's child into slavery because God fully understands what is it like to have a house full of crying hungry children when you are broke as fuck.

People kill self and their whole family because they do not have the money even for the food for the children!

Is it not better to sell 1 daughter into righteous, just and temporary slavery, so that the other 10 children may live and not die from hunger or homicide?

Is this not ultimate mercy and humility? Is God not just?

According to the Torah, you could not sell your kind into slavery to a foreigner. You could only sell to your own kind. God perfectly understands that normal parents would never sell their daughter into permanent, unrighteous and unjust slavery. They would rather kill her. This is why God permitted to sell only to your own kind.

And God strictly prohibited even to oppress the slaves, even from the son of the foreigner, because we ourselves were slaves in the land of Mitzraim and God has delivered us from there.

This is the ultimate and undeniable reason why we need Torah-based slavery. Without it, many people are dying and will continue to die.

For many very needy people, only two logical options exist: death or slavery. And since modern society denies them proper slavery, the only other option that they have is death. Even if they choose to do nothing, it is only a matter of time when they simply forced to choose.

Torah-based slavery is the ultimate social justice system for the needy as my explanation clearly shows.

P.S. The reason why this commandment does not mention "a son" is that this commandment deals only with the issue of marriage of the slave women. We are allowed to sell our sons into slavery too and other commands in the Torah explain how it is done.

When does the Counting of Omer start?

Here is the interesting question... When does the Counting of Omer start?

Let's take a look:
CLV Dt 16:9 You shall count off seven weeks for yourself. From the start of the scythe in the raised grain shall you start to count off seven weeks.
This is the most important verse that tells us when to start counting the Omer.

First of all, notice that it talks only about counting 7 weeks. It does not say to count 50 days. I will explain why further in the post.

Secondly, we see the explicit command to start counting weeks of Omer from the start of the harvest. This means that the date when we start counting can change based on the harvest.

As I have explained on this blog, the High Priest would determine when we start the count.

And here is the  additional information that is also important: 
YLT Lv 23:9 And Jehovah speaketh unto Moses, saying,
YLT Lv 23:10 'Speak unto the sons of Israel, and thou hast said unto them, When ye come in unto the land which I am giving to you, and have reaped its harvest, and have brought in the sheaf, the beginning of your harvest unto the priest, 
YLT Lv 23:11 then he hath waved the sheaf before Jehovah for your acceptance; on the morrow of the sabbath doth the priest wave it. 
YLT Lv 23:15 'And ye have numbered to you from the morrow of the sabbath, from the day of your bringing in the sheaf of the wave-offering: they are seven perfect sabbaths;
As you can see, Torah clearly says when Counting of Omer is to start. We start counting 7 weeks from the morrow of the Shabbat but we count 50 days from the actual Shabbat.

As I have said before, the Shabbat of the 1st of Omer would be determined by the High Priest based on the readiness of the harvest in the entire Land of Canaan. This is because 50th of Omer is a Holy Meeting, which means that all had to harvest and count at the same time.

The last question that remains is what is the earliest Shabbat at which the Counting of Omer can start?!? I finally managed to find the answer to this question!

The EARLIEST Shabbat that the Counting of Omer can start is the Passover/1st of Unleavened Shabbat or Full-Moon Shabbat of the 1st Hebrew Month.

This is because in some years (like 2018) we can have harvest falling on Passover/1st of Unleavened Shabbat due to the late Spring and intercalation (13th month).

At first, I did not think it was possible because I thought that 1st of Omer is a Holy Meeting. I thought that 1st of Omer Holy Meeting was edited out of the Torah by the rabbis to fit their calendar, just like they did with the New Moon.

If you will look at Leviticus 23 and Numbers 28-29, you will see that 1st of Omer IS NOT a Holy Meeting. But the reason for this is not the editing. The reason for this is that 1st of Omer can fall on Passover/1st of Unleavened Shabbat, which is why 1st of Omer is NOT a Holy Meeting to prevent us from having 2 Holy Meetings at once (1st of Unleavened and 1st of Omer).

This is why 1st of Omer is NOT a Holy Meeting so that we can start counting as early as the 1st of Unleavened Shabbat.

Please note that we start counting 50 days from the 1st of Unleavened Shabbat but we start counting 7 weeks from the MORROW of the 1st of Unleavened Shabbat as Leviticus 23:15 states. This is because we can't harvest on Shabbat, so the count of harvest weeks starts the day after when there are no work prohibitions.

And we have an actual example of starting the count this early.

While it is not the Torah,  Joshua 5:10-12 states, that they ate the "old corn" of the land ON THE MORROW AFTER PASSOVER, which makes it the 16th.

So this passage in Joshua completely fits my explanation and it makes perfect sense.

They slaughtered Passover between the evenings on the 14th. They have observed actual Passover and ate their own Unleavened bread on the 15th, which was definitely the Shabbat. And they have started eating the old harvest of the land on the 16th (from the morrow of the Passover or from the morrow of the 15th) which also proves that 15th was the Shabbat as we are explicitly commanded to start counting FROM THE MORROW of the Shabbat.

So as you can see, now everything makes perfect sense.

So the earliest time the Counting of Omer can start is the Passover/1st of Unleavened Shabbat.

Once again, please note that we start counting 50 days from the Shabbat but we start counting 7 weeks from the morrow of the Shabbat.

Hope this information helps.

ABIB 2018: They are lying to you again!!!

If you have seen my Correct Torah Calendar (here is the actual calendar), you would know that the 1st month of this coming year begins a month later than traditional one!

The reason for this is very simple: The Month of Abib can't be the month of Spring Equinox because Torah very clearly says that THE WHOLE MONTH must be Abib!!!

Usually, this is not a problem because on average Spring Equinox falls way before the New Moon(as far as 15 days), which does not create any problem with the timing of the Month of Abib.

However, this is not the case this year (2018) when we have Spring Equinox falling just a few days AFTER the New Moon. And even though it is normal due to differences in Solar and Lunar cycles, this seems to have created a confusion as to when the 1st Month of the Year will start.

The answer to this question is very simple:

As I have stated numerous times on my blog, the Calendar and all Moedim are to be determined by the Sun and the Moon alone !!! See Genesis 1:14. And we must use BOTH the Sun and the Moon to determine Month of Abib. This is why we can't use Spring Equinox (Sun) alone and neither we can use the Moon alone. WE MUST USE BOTH. THESE ARE THE RULES !!!

This means that in case of this year where we have Spring Equinox falling a few days AFTER the New Moon, we must ADD 13th Month (intercalate) because Abib can't happen during a Month of Equinox. It ALWAYS happens in a Month FOLLOWING Spring Equinox.

Here is more or less sane report by one of many groups that look for Barley in Israel. I saved it in PDF so that I may preserve these lies for the whole world to see.


First of all, notice the pictures! Even though they have managed to find a patch of mature Barley, on the background you can see EVERYTHING IS STILL GREEN !!!

Secondly, look at the location of the pictures! It was taken in the Negev, which is the utmost southern part of Israel. This means that the rest of Barley in the rest of Israel is STILL GREEN!!! Only in southern parts, where it is much warmer, you can find mature Barley this early.

And finally, for my coup de grace, look at the report itself:
The barley in the Judean Hills and Jordan Valley was quite immature this year, while the barley in the Northern Negev was more mature. The most developed location we looked at in the Northern Negev had a good amount of patches of aviv barley. We also found some individual stalks at other fields. It is the unanimous conclusion of the participants, that we found enough aviv barley to begin the year with the upcoming new moon sighting.
So even though, by their own observations, the Barley was far from being mature and only individual stalks were found outside of southern regions, they still concluded that it is the Month of Abib!!! Not even Barley Abib, the Month of Abib !!!

You can see more of the same lies here: http://renewedmoon.com/

So as you can see, these people are blatantly lying to you and misleading you!!! They are even ignoring their own observations and photographic evidence to force-fit their incorrect beliefs and traditions with the Torah.

Here is what the Torah says:
CLV Ex 13:4 Today you are going forth in the month of Aviv(ripening)
CLV Ex 23:15 you shall observe the celebration of unleavened cakes; seven days shall you eat unleavened cakes, just as I instructed you, at the appointed time in the month Aviv(ripening), for in it you went forth from Egypt, and none shall appear before Me empty-handed: 
CLV Ex 34:18 The celebration of unleavened cakes shall you observe seven days. You shall eat unleavened cakes just as I have instructed you for the appointed time in the month of Aviv(ripening), for in the month of Aviv(ripening) you came forth from Egypt. 
CLV Dt 16:1 You are to observe the month of Aviv(ripening) and prepare a passover to Yahuah your Elohim, for in the month of Aviv(ripening) Yahuah your Elohim brought you forth from Egypt by night.
So as you can see, Torah very clearly states that it is the MONTH OF ABIB !!! NOT BARLEY ABIB!!!

The WHOLE MONTH MUST BE ABIB to be considered the 1st Month of the Hebrew Year!!!

This means that the MONTH OF ABIB can only be the FIRST LUNAR MONTH AFTER SPRING EQUINOX!!! Very simple!!!

The incorrect tradition of looking for Abib Barley comes from incorrect interpretations of the verses of Exodus. Let's take a look:
CLV Ex 9:31 (And the flax and the barley were smitten, for the barley was ripened (abib), and the flax was in pod; 
CLV Ex 9:32 yet the wheat and the spelt were not smitten, for they were in blade.)
So as you can see, they misinterpret these two verses to say that Abib refers to Barley and not to a Month !!!

However, this is very wrong and here is why:

First of all, these verses refer to Mizraim, not Canaan.

Secondly, the Hebrews did not leave Mizraim after these verses. Considerable time has passed before they left!

So while it is true that at the time of the Hail plague the Barley was Abib, it was in Mizraim and there were several more plagues to come. This means that Hebrews left Mizraim later when EVERYTHING WAS ABIB (not just Barley).

And since Mizraim is south of Canaan, Abib in Canaan should be later than that of Mizraim.

Here is the auxiliary verse to support this point: 
CLV Lv 2:14 Yet if you bring near an approach present of firstfruits to Yahuah, you shall bring near ripened(abib) ears toasted by fire, groats of the crop, as the approach present of your firstfruits.
Clearly, Abib means fully ripened because the offering of first-fruits to Yahuah had to be edible.

And as you can see, it NEVER MENTIONS BARLEY !!! This means that Abib refers to ALL spring crops !!! Not just Barley!!!

This is why Torah says "MONTH OF ABIB"!!! Because ALL spring crops were ripe in this month and close to harvest !!!

Torah NEVER SAYS to look for Barley to determine the 1st Month!!! On the contrary, Torah explicitly tells us to use the Sun AND the Moon TOGETHER to determine ALL Moedim !!!

The reason why Torah tells us to use the Sun and the Moon together to determine all Moedim is that everything on Earth depends on the Sun and the Moon. In fact, without Sun and Moon (or even without the Moon alone) there would not be any life on our planet at all. This is why Torah tells us to use very precise and obvious signs to determine the Moedim !!!

Ripened Barley can be used as a SECONDARY SIGN ONLY and it is NEVER COMMANDED !!!
