Dear @Psalm_51.10 ,
An encouraging message from a deeply caring and encouraging brother.
How would you apply what happened to the Israelites crossing through the middle of the Red Sea on dry land to the current situation today (2020)please? Something to discuss with everyone.
A few other things to consider:
You are being led out of captivity under the evil made-up rules of men (Egypt), to freedom under Father's Law. It may not seem that way at times, as you still have to toil within the system, but you are being taught and prepared nevertheless.
The situation will worsen, even if there are temporary reprieves. As most know, the "sea", which is made up of "waters" are both references to the people (Isa. 17:12-13, Rev. 17:15). And the color red is the color of blood. So the "Red Sea" is a metaphor for the people, bloodied by war, famine and disease.
Father parted the Red Sea so the Israelite's could pass through the middle of it on dry land, in much the same way He parted the crowds for TM to walk through when they tried to murder Him for telling them the truth (e.g. Luke 4:16-30).
He will do exactly the same for you, IF you cultivate the Faith then He will do so, which is what this preparation time is all about.
So there's nothing to fear regardless of whether everyone around you is losing their heads, over fabricated news and fabricated threats, or over real threats of violence and/or humans killing each other (wars and rumors of wars). Father will lead you through the middle of the "red sea" when the time is right, just as He did with the Israelite's of old. So you must not hesitate to go to the water's edge and patiently wait for His Signs and Guidance.
TWHOFTF 7:17 Another was when God let Moses’ spirit show through the flesh of his hand, in front of pharaoh, and his hand shone with a bright white light (Exodus 4:6)(Sura 7:108). 7:18 Then God parted the Red Sea, to let Moses’ people escape, and to destroy the evil Egyptians, who were chasing them. Pharaoh believed, and led his people to believe, that he was greater than God. The Egyptians were arrogant; perverted; cruel, and guilty of incest and many other crimes. 7:19 Using water again, to destroy the Egyptians, gave God the opportunity to kill the human-animals, and to give their souls another chance, like He had done in the time of Noah (Exodus 14:28). 7:20 Comparing the Egypt of then, with the Egypt of today; when God said He would destroy Egypt, He was not joking.
Words of LIFE.
Love and Laugh
God at Eventide
To the Water's Edge. - March 4
As God was in the days of Moses, so is He to-day. Responsive to the prayer of faith. Still ready and willing to make a path through the Red Sea.
Have the faith of Moses, who never faltered in his trust, even with the sea before, the advancing host behind, and no visible way of escape. To the very edge of the waters he led his People.
His task was done, It was for God, his God, in Whom he trusted, to act now. Moses waited for, and expected, that act**. But to the edge he had to go**.
How often man draws back, halts at the thought of the troubled sea ahead. To go further is useless, he says, and gives up.
Or he goes within sight of the sea, and pauses. He must go on, always as far as he can; he must do all his share. On - to the Edge of the Sea.
Learn from this a mighty lesson. Do all your work, and leave your salvation to God. To say it will be no good is not to go to the edge, and that is to miss the saving Power of God.
The waters shall be divided, and you shall walk through the midst of the sea on dry land. I have said it. I, the Lord. Have I not done this for so many in your own day? For you? Think on these things.
