PARTING RED SEA BIBLE STUDY ON PARTING RED SEA BIBLE STORY WITH PARTING RED SEA BIBLE MESSAGE
Welcome to the wilderness of Egypt.
Daily Bread is following Moses and the children of Israel as they make their
exodus from Egypt. We have the Lord leading in a pillar of a cloud by day
and a pillar of fire by night.
The Lord told Moses to take the
children of Israel to camp by the sea and Pharaoh will think that they're
trapped and the wilderness has shut them in. Pharaoh's heart and all of his
servants was turned against God's people AGAIN and they said, Why did we do
this? Why did we let Israel go free from serving us? You didn't really
think Pharaoh's heart would ever soften, did you? Neither did God. (Wink)
Pharaoh got his chariot and took his
people with him with all the chariots of Egypt and captains over each one
and they followed the children of Israel. They caught up with them camped
by the sea and when God's people saw that the Egyptians chased them, they
were very afraid and they cried out to the Lord.

AND PARTING RED SEA BIBLE STORY SUMMARY
They said to Moses, Did you bring us
to die in the wilderness because there were no graves in Egypt? Why have
you done this to us? Didn't we tell you in Egypt to leave us be and let us
serve the Egyptians? It would have been better to serve the Egyptians than
to die in the wilderness. Surely they were afraid that Egypt would capture
them and they would be put through worse turmoil than being beaten for not
making enough bricks without straw.
Moses however had seen the Lord work
His wonders against Pharaoh and Egypt ten times now and his faith was firm.
He answered the people, Don't be afraid, stand still and watch the salvation
of the Lord that He will show you today. The Egyptians that you've seen
today, you'll never see again for ever. The Lord will fight for you and
you'll keep your freedom.
The Lord said to Moses, Talk to my
people, tell them to go forward. Lift up your staff and stretch out your
hand over the sea and divide it, and my people will walk on dry ground
through the middle of the sea. I'll harden the hearts of the Egyptians and
they'll follow them and I'll get my revenge on Pharaoh and all his people,
his chariots and his horsemen, and after that, they'll know that I am the
The angel of God that was in front of
the camp of Israel in the pillar of the cloud, went and stood behind them
between the camp of the Egyptians and the camp of Israel. It was a cloud of
darkness to the Egyptians but it gave light to Israel so that the Egyptians
couldn't reach God's people all the night long.
Moses stretched out his hand over the
sea and the Lord caused the sea to go back with a strong east wind all that
night and made the sea dry land. The waters were divided and God's people
went into the middle of the sea on dry ground. The waters were like walls
to their right and to their left.

Pharaoh and the Egyptians, his horses
and his chariots and his horsemen all pursed after them into the middle of
the sea. At dawn, the Lord looked at the Egyptians through the pillar of
fire and of the cloud and troubled them by taking off their chariot wheels.
The Egyptians said, We'd better run from Israel, the Lord is fighting for
When the Israelites had reached the
other side, the Lord told Moses, Stretch out your hand over the sea so the
water will close on the Egyptians, their chariots and their horsemen. So
Moses did, and the waters returned and covered the chariots and the horsemen
and all the host of Pharaoh that came into the sea after them. Not a single
one of them lived. God's people saw the Egyptians dead on the sea shore and
Israel feared the Lord, and believed the Lord and his servant Moses.
It must have been so amazing. There
is no strength like God's strength. There is no one as clever. His humor
is incomparable and His grace is the most astounding of all. His people
doubted Him so many times, as you've seen several times and will see still
more, and yet He stretched out His hands to them over and over again.
Now that the fear of Egypt is behind
them, what's next for God's people? Join us again to sojourn with Daily
Bread and God's people as they follow God to the Promised Land.
