Did the biblical exodus (Exodus 14:5-31), led by Moses through parting of the Red Sea, chased by the legion army of the then Pharaoh, with the Israelites ultimately delivered by God unharmed out of slavery really happened, contrary to sceptics?

Of course.

Then Moses raised his hand over the sea, and the Lord opened up a path through the water with a strong east wind. The wind blew all that night, turning the seabed into dry land. So the people of Israel walked through the middle of the sea on dry ground, with walls of water on each side!

Then the Egyptians—all of Pharaoh’s horses, chariots, and charioteers—chased them into the middle of the sea. But just before dawn the Lord looked down on the Egyptian army from the pillar of fire and cloud, and he threw their forces into total confusion. He twisted their chariot wheels, making their chariots difficult to drive. “Let’s get out of here—away from these Israelites!” the Egyptians shouted. “The Lord is fighting for them against Egypt!”

When all the Israelites had reached the other side, the Lord said to Moses, “Raise your hand over the sea again. Then the waters will rush back and cover the Egyptians and their chariots and charioteers.” So as the sun began to rise, Moses raised his hand over the sea, and the water rushed back into its usual place. The Egyptians tried to escape, but the Lord swept them into the sea. Then the waters returned and covered all the chariots and charioteers—the entire army of Pharaoh. Of all the Egyptians who had chased the Israelites into the sea, not a single one survived. Exodus 14:21-28

Did the Biblical Exodus Led by Moses Really Happened?  Yes!

Suez| Egypt’s Antiquities Ministry announced this morning that a team of underwater archaeologists had discovered that remains of a large Egyptian army from the 14th century BC, at the bottom of the Gulf of Suez, 1.5 kilometres offshore from the modern city of  Ras-Gharib. The team was searching for the remains of ancient ships and artefacts related to Stone Age and Bronze Age trade in the Red Sea area, when they stumbled upon a gigantic mass of human bones darkened by age. 

This magnificient blade from an egyptian khopesh,  was certainly the weapon of an important character. It was discovered near the remains of a highly decorated war chariot, suggesting it could have belonged to a prince or nobleman.

This magnificent blade from an Egyptian Khopesh, discovered near the remains of a richly decorated war chariot, suggesting it could have belonged to a prince or nobleman.

The scientists lead by Professor Abdel Muhammad Gader and associated with Cairo University’s Faculty of Archaeology, have already recovered a total of more than 400 different skeletons, as well as hundreds of weapons and pieces of armour, also the remains of two war chariots, scattered over an area of approximately 200 square meters. They estimate that more than 5000 other bodies could be dispersed over a wider area, suggesting that an army of large size who have perished on the site.

Many clues on the site have brought Professor Gader and his team to conclude that the bodies could be linked to the famous episode of the Exodus. First of all, the ancient soldiers seem to have died on dry ground, since no  traces of boats or ships have been found in the area. The positions of the bodies and the fact that they were stuck in a vast quantity of clay and rock, implied that they could have died in a mudslide or a tidal wave.

The shear number of bodies suggests that a large ancient army perished on the site and the dramatic way by which they were killed, both seem to corroborate the biblical version of the Red Sea Crossing, when the army of the Egyptian Pharaoh was destroyed by the returning waters that Moses had parted. This new find certainly proves that there was indeed an Egyptian army of large size that was destroyed by the waters of the Red Sea during the reign of King Akhenaten.

This astounding discovery brings undeniable scientific proof that one the most famous episodes of the Old Testament was indeed, based on an historical event. It brings a brand new perspective on a story that many historians have been considering for years as a work of fiction, and suggesting that other themes like the “Plagues of Egypt” could indeed have an historical base.

A lot more research and many more recovery operations are to be expected on the site over the next few years, as Professor Gader and his team have already announced their desire to retrieve the rest of the bodies and artefacts from was has turned out to be one of the richest archaeological underwater sites ever discovered.

Thank You Lord Jesus, for Your victory at the cross. It is because of Your victory – that saved me, and that my enemy can never ever have any victory in my life. You, Lord, are my rock, my strength, and my protector, so there is no one who can destroy my life as long as I walk with You.

He alone is my refuge, my place of safety;

    He will shelter you with his wings.
    His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

California Surfer
Dear Lord Jesus, I thank You for the liberty and freedom You have sacrificed to give me. You have set me free from so much bondages and death itself. You said Your yoke is easy and burden is light; my life lived by Your faith is easy and light. I don’t have to carry the difficult and heavy religious yoke and burden of self-righteousness to make myself acceptable to God-the Father through my self-effort. Deliver me from any yoke and burden of bondage on my life that You never intended me to have, and help me to stand strong with this new freedom. Keep me from ever being drawn back into any bondage from which You have freed me from.

In Jesus name. Amen.

So Christ has truly set us free. Now make sure that you stay free, and don’t get tied up again in slavery to the law.   Galatians 5:1 (NLT)

Prayer For Deep Inner Peace

Dear Lord Jesus, I need to have a deeper sense of Your divine peace in me. Take away all my fears, doubts, and anxiousness and replace it with the inner peace that only You can give. Despite the turbulent circumstances around me, I will always walk in Your peace; because You are with me. Thank You that Your peace will stand guard and watch over my mind. Help me fill my thoughts with things that are true, and honourable, and right, and pure, and lovely, and admirable. Thank You that Your peace will guard my heart from destructive emotions and feelings in my life. Let Your peace rule and lead in my heart and my mind.

In Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

Don’t be anxious about things; instead, pray. Pray about everything. He longs to hear your requests, so talk to God about your needs and be thankful for what has come. And know that the peace of God (a peace that is beyond any and all of our human understanding) will stand watch over your hearts and minds in Jesus, the Anointed One. Philippians 4:7 (VOICE)
