CROSSING OF THE RED SEA: Get it Right,Please

In an article  titled “Wind could have parted Red Sea for Moses edited by Jerry Norton in Yahoo News on the 21st of September 2010, he narrates the scientific report by some researchers, who tried to confirm the Biblical story through their findings, claiming that strong winds were responsible for the crossing of the Red sea. The researchers postulate that the strong wind action was  in conformity with physical laws. In addition they stated: “People have always been fascinated by this Exodus story, wondering if it comes from historical facts,” Drews said. “What this study shows is that the description of the waters parting indeed has a basis in physical laws.” I did e-mail the article to some contacts on my mailing list. This postulation, in a little way, supports Biblical account. However, there is more to it than the researchers’ report. An estimated over 3 million  of Israeli people, plus their cattle had enough time to cross the Red sea, before their pursuers came after them. Evidently, it must have taken well over four hours! I have met some men who have been privileged to dive into the bottom of the Red sea. These men saw several chariot wheels, ripped apart from the main chariots, as recorded in the Bible. Mark and Peter Elmer (two of the divers) are the sons of Pastor Jim Elmer. I have been able to meet them and their father and have seen part of the documentary video. I invited them to one of my churches in Bristol during 2007, for an exciting evening, where they presented an account of their remarkable exploration. It was not a mean feat performed by God Almighty, through his servant Moses! If the Israelites had gone the easier route straight across the land from Rameses into Canaan, they would have been easily overrun by the armies of Egypt! However, God commanded them through Moses to go southwards via the Red Sea. There God demonstrated his power. The Red Sea was parted by God, instructing Moses to stretch his rod. It was God who made the strong winds to blow. This is a Biblical, historical, scientific and archaeological fact. It was and it is a miracle. What a mighty God we serve!
