“Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea; and the Lord caused the sea to go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea into dry land, and the waters were divided.”Exodus 14:21
Even after witnessing such a miracle as this, Israel continued in their doubt and disbelief for years to come. Many of them perished, and only a handful finished the journey from Egypt to the promised land, of whom Moses was not amongst. This is the people whom Pharoah looked upon and said “Look, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we”.
Out of an entire nation of people, a handful were chosen for their faith and obedience. This is a grave warning to all believers today, many of whom walk around in a trance. You who array yourselves in white robes so that others cannot see what’s beneath. You who openly proclaim Scripture and obedience to God yet willingly disobey at every chance when no one sees you. You who prophesy falsely and you who teach falsely. We must not continue this way!
Take a moment and set aside everything so that you can clearly hear the voice of Him who died to save you. There is an entire generation of believers who believe they are fireproof, but are blind to the wrath of God just as Israel was.
The generation that saw the sea part and their enemies destroyed before their eyes was the generation that complained and died in the wilderness for their disbelief and idolatry.
Selah. Meditate on that.
