Parting of the Red(Reed) Sea

January 27, 2017
By Pastor Allen

 

It's probably one of the most famous stories of all time.  Is there anyone that has not heard it?  Many have argued about whether it really happened or not.  And if it did....did the seas really part or did they just walk through ankle-deep water?  So, answer me this: Why did all the Egyptian soldiers die in 'ankle-deep' water?

Aside from this miraculous event...and that's what I believe it was...why did God go to all this trouble for these people?  If you read the account in the Old Testament book of Exodus you will see the record of all their complaints and the threats of insurrection.

On Sunday we will be reading this story in Exodus 13:17-14:31.  I'm always amazed at how similar we are to these people who lived over 3000 years ago.  It reminds me that God's Word is Truth for all people at all times in all places.

God Bless,

Allen
