HOW TO CROSS THE RED SEA IN YOUR LIFE

EX. 14:13

THERE ARE TIMES IN OUR LIVES…WHEN WE LIKE THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL FACE A RED SEA CROSSING. IT IS SUCH A TIME AS THIS THAT WE VISIT THIS MORNING WITH THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL. AS YOU KNOW,

FOR 430 YEARS GOD’S PEOPLE HAD BEEN IN BONDAGE IN EGYPT. GOD HAD CALLED MOSES….AND HIS BROTHER AARON TO BE HIS MOUTHPIECE TO TELL PHAROAH A MESSAGE OF LIBERATION…GOD SIMPLY SAID TO PHAROAH…LET MY PEOPLE GO. GOD SENT 10 PLAGUES UPON EGYPT. GOD KNOWS HOW TO PROVE HIS POINT. HE USED THE PLAGUES TO:

1. TEACH THE WORLD THAT THE LORD JEHOVAH, YAHWEH IS THE GOD OF REDEMPTION, SALVATION AND DELIVERANCE.

2. DEMONSTRATE HIS OMNIPOTENT POWER TO ALL THE EARTH SO THAT EVEN HIS ENEMIES WOULD KNOW WHO HE IS.

3. FORCE PHAROAH AND THE EGYPTIANS TO FREE ISRAEL.

4. SHOW THAT THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THOSE WHO FOLLOWED HIM AND THOSE WHO DID NOT.

5. TO JUDGE THE EGYPTIANS FOR THEIR TERRIBLE SINS OF WORSHIPPING FALSE GODS, AND ENSLAVING AND BRUTALIZING HIS PEOPLE

6. PROVIDED CREDENTIALS FOR GOD’S PEOPLE. TRULY, GOD TAKES CARE OF HIS OWN. THE PLAGUES GOD PERMITTED TORE DOWN THE HIERARCHY OF THE FALSE GODS OF EGYPT. EVERY PLAGUE BROUGHT PHAROAH CLOSER TO THE REALITY OF THE ONLY WISE AND TRUE GOD. AS WE STUDY THIS UNFOLDING SAGA OF DIVINE INTERVENTION WE BEGIN TO REALIZE , AS PHAROAH DID, THAT WHEN YOU GET CLOSER TO GOD….YOU EITHER HAVE TO CHANGE OR YOU HAVE TO FACE JUDGMENT. REMEMBER, IF PHAROAH HAD CHANGED…..THERE WOULD NOT BE MUCH OF A STORY TO TELL . PLEASE NOTE, THAT THE EGYPTIANS HAD A MULTI GOD SYSTEM…EVEN THOUGH THE MAJOR GOD WAS “RA”, THERE WERE MANY SUB DEITIES. THE POINT I’M MAKING IS THAT THIS BIBLICAL REVELATION TEACHES THE WORLD (THEN AND NOW) THAT THE LORD JEHOVAH, YAHWEH IS THE GOD OF REDEMPTION, SALVATION AND DELIVERANCE. LET’S LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED!

1ST…(7:17-18)…..WATER CHANGED TO BLOOD! .(GOD COULD DO THAT SINCE HE IS BOTH CREATOR AND SUSTAINER. THE WATER SUPPLY BELONGED TO HIM AND GOD PERMITTED THE WATER TO BE CONTAMINATED) THE EGYPTIANS HAD A GOD NAMED NILUS OR HOPI…(THE GOD OF THE NILE RIVER WHO THEY WORSHIPED FOR CONTROLING THE WATERS OF THE EARTH). BUT WHEN GOD CHANGED WATER TO BLOOD IT PROVIDED PROOF THAT GOD IS THE ONLY LIVING AND TRUE GOD. PHAROAH’S HEART BECAME HARD…7:22..

2ND…(8: 1-15)….FROGS EVERYWHERE!.. SWARMED OVER ALL OF PHAROAH’S PROPERTY. BUT THE WHOLE EARTH BELONGS TO GOD! (THE EARTH IS THE LORD’S – PSALMS 24:1) THE EGYPTIAN’S GOD WAS PTHA. A RATHER UGLY FROG-HEADED GOD..AND HEKT GODDESS OF REPRODUCTIONS. BUT GOD PRODUCED MORE FROGS THAN HEKT AND PTHA EVER PRODUCED. ANOTHER TEARING DOWN OF STRONGHOLDS, AND PROOF THAT GOD HAS NO EQUAL. PHAROAH HARDENED HIS HEART AND WOULD NOT LISTEN..(8:15)

3RD…( 8: 16-19)LICE OR GNATS INFESTED THE LAND (THE EGYPTIAN GOD WORSHIPED FOR THE EARTH WAS SEB..GOD OF THE EARTH.) HE WAS SUPPOSED TO BLESS THE EARTH BY PRODUCING AND PROTECTING. GOD MADE THE LICE AND GNATS COME OUT OF THE EARTH. ANOTHER STRONGHOLD TORN DOWN AS PROOF THAT THE POWER OF GOD CONTROLS ALL THINGS, EVEN THE VERY DUST OF THE GROUND. BUT PHAROAH’S HEART WAS HARDENED. 8:19
