LESSON FOR AUGUST 17
CROSSING THE RED SEA.
I.KSfiON TEXT Ex. 14:19-11.
OOLIiKN TEXT "Before they call, I
will answer." Ua. S:!4.
No sooner were the Israelites sent
on their Journey than the Egyptians
repented and pursued (vv. S-9). Then
It was that Moses encountered the
first of that complaining (r. 10)
against which he struggled until God
took him from this earth. They
"cried" (r. 10) but they did not rest.
It did look like a dangeroua situation
and there were but three possible
methods of procedure, (a) To return
to slavery, (b) to die In the wilder
ness, or (3) to go forward In faithful
obedlonce, trusting Ood for deliver
ance. Their aalvatlon (v. 13) waa
from Ood, see Acts 4:13; Heb. 6:8, 0.
God's leading, 13:31, 22, had brought
them to this place; now He will man!-,
feat His glory, will get unto Himself
"honor" (r. 17).
Testing the Israelites.
I. Protection, vv. 19-22. As the an
gel of God (Christ?) came between
Israel and the Egyptians we are re
minded of Ps. 34:7, "the angel of the
Lord encampeth round about them
that fear Him and delivereth them."
The same cloud that brought darkness
to the Egyptians brought light to tho
Israelites. Even so we have the
"Light," Luke 2:32; John 8:12, 9:5,
and are admonished to walk ln the
light, Eph. 5:8. While God brought
confusion to the Egyptians and was
testing the Israelites by causing them
to "fear not, stand still and see" (v.
13), He was at the same time giv
ing Moses an opportunity to work out
His plan of deliverance (v. 1G). Aa
the strong east wind blew it heaped
up the waters, dried out the muddy
bottom and opened a passage for the
deliverance of all tho chosen ones.
Then it was time for prayer to cease
(r. 14, 15) and for action to begin,
the seemingly impossible Is now quite
possible. Matt 19:26. Notice, bow-
ever, that God bad used a man
(Moses) In His work of deliverance.
It was a very simple shepherd's staff
that God directed Moses to use.
Surely the power was not ln the staff
nor ln the arm back of the staff. The
same waters that bad seemed to be
such a barrier are now used as a wall
of protection (v. 22) on the right hand
and on the left leaving no opportunity
for a flank attack. Their only way
of escape waa forward and each step
they took was one of faith.
II. Pursuit, w. 23-25. Pharaoh had
Judged that the Israelites were en
tangled, "perplexed" (v. 8) ln the wil
derness and that Moses had Inadvert
antly led them into a natural trap
which waa to the advantage of the
Egyptians. Further, we Judge that
with the darkness of the cloud before
them, the Egyptians were not fully
aware of the fact that they were fol
lowing Israel Into the midst of the
waters. Blind fury will lead a man
Into strange surroundings and to per
form Insane acta. Thl new way waa
not prepared for Pharaoh nor Is the
straight and narrow path which leads
to glory for the unrepentant alnner.
Jehovah was near at hand that "morn- -lng
watch" (v. 24), even as today He
blesses those who keep that hour.
One "look" from Jehovah brought
confusion and discomfort upon the
The Safe Path.
III. Punishment, vv. 26-31. The path
that Is safe for faith la no place for
the disobedient. God looking; through
that cloud paralyzed the proud forces
of Pharaoh ln the place of all placea
most dangerous. God not alone looked,
but took off their chariot wheela and
fear overcame them. Then they real
ized that Jehovah was fighting and
sought to flee. Again God uses a
man ln the working out of His plan
and Mosea la instructed to stretch
forth his hand over the sea, v. 28.
As the morning breaks the waters re
turn to their level, and again God
uses "natural forces la a supernatural
manner. Like aa one would shake
off some useless, offensive, appendage
so God was rid of the army of Pha
raoh (v. 27 marg). A careful read
ing of this story, especially verse 28
R. V., clearly indicates the probability
that Pharaoh himself did .not perish.
Thus it was that Israel saw the hand
work of the Lord upon the Egyptians
while tbey themselves remained a
saved people, saved by the power of
Jehovah. Great fear came upon them
(v. 31) and they "Believed the Lord
and His servant Moses." How sad
that their faith proved so short lived
and that they so soon murmured
against Ood and His servant Moses.
Thus we see the nation delivered,
consecrated and placed under the di
rect government and guidance of God.
Egypt did not keep faith with Israel
to let them "go and worship" and
God wrought a complete deliverance.
God's Judgment of the sin of Egypt
was carried out to the last degree,
but in strict Justice. On one hand la
God's guidance and over against that
the lengths men will go whose heart
are hardened In rebellion. Th bla
phemous daring of the Egyptians waa
rebuked as they attempted to uarefe
along God's highway of deliverance
Israel followed Mosea, the prophet. i ,
