Last week we ended with the Egyptian army marching toward the Israelites- who were trapped against the
Red Sea.  The Israelites were terrified and cried out to the Lord.

Exodus 14:21  Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the
sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land.

The Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.

See photo above, lower right corner.  The green arrow shows where the Israelites crossed the Red Sea.

The Egyptians pursued them following them into the sea.  God threw the Egyptian army into confusion 
and caused the wheels of their chariots to come off.

Again, Moses stretched out his hand over the sea.  The water flowed back and covered the entire
army of Pharaoh.  Not one of them survived.

Exodus 14:30  That day the Lord saved Israel from the hands of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the
Egyptians lying dead on the shore.

Thank you so much for reading.  God bless.
