God Will Make A Way – Psalms 77

Garden pathway - God will make a way - Psalms 77I don’t usually do this, but today I read my good friend’s email about Psalms 77 before I posted. My good friend Jan has been “dBraggin'” for years now and has incredible insight. What’s dBraggin’ you ask? It’s a simple method to keep you accountable in reading the Bible every day. See www.dbrag.org for more information.

Rather than put my own thoughts, I decided to post Jan’s very insightful email.

Not only is he very insightful and faithful to daily Bible reading, he’s an amazing leader for the Pinellas, FL Wildmen men’s group. And, he has been a great friend. For more information about Jan, see his website at: http://www.tinybeetle.us/dbrag

Anyway – here’s Jan’s post:

This depressing psalm concludes with an intriguing few verses. In most translations it would be missed, but look at how the New Living Translation worded them.

Psalm 77:16-20 “When the Red Sea saw you, O God, its waters looked and trembled! The sea quaked to its very depths. The clouds poured down their rain; the thunder rolled and crackled in the sky. Your arrows of lightning flashed. Your thunder roared from the whirlwind; the lightning lit up the world! The earth trembled and shook. Your road led through the sea, your pathway through the mighty waters—a pathway no one knew was there! You led your people along that road like a flock of sheep, with Moses and Aaron as their shepherds.”

This account of the Red Sea crossing by the Israelites sheds new light on the events that transpired. Apparently God used a violent storm, tornado, and an earthquake. Then in the last two verses comes a revelation that has recently been discovered.

Biblical Archaeologist, Ron Wyatt, in researching clues about where a vast number of people would have been able to cross the Red Sea; where mountains were located nearby the opposite shore, and where the people would have been boxed in as described in Exodus, located a canyon with a wide beach, known as Wadi Watir. It perfectly fit the biblical descriptions. The beach was wide enough to accommodate two million plus people to camp. In 1978 he and two of his sons dove to the seabed and discovered chariot wheels. He took them to the Director of Egyptian Antiquities. The director immediately announced they were from the eighteenth dynasty – the correct time-period for the Exodus.

Now comes the really interesting part. The Gulf of Aquaba (Red Sea) is very deep, up to a mile in some spots. Additionally the angle of descent is 45 degrees or more. There is no way you could get animals and wagons down and then back up that steep of an incline. However, in only one spot, and precisely the spot where Ron Wyatt found the chariot wheels, he found an underwater land-bridge! It lies at a depth of only 850 meters and is about 900 meters wide. This land bridge, if exposed by the supernatural actions of God would have allowed for a gradual descent from the beach, and would have been wide enough to allow the entire populous to cross in a single evening. There truly is a pathway through the sea!

Heavenly Father, thank You for allowing evidence to remain, evidence that can strengthen our faith. You truly are awesome! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

He makes a way where there is no way! Jan

Ain’t he good? I’m blessed to have such a friend.

peace,

    What a great bit of info to stumble across. As I am in pursuit of decisions to make…wondering what is even possible in my situation, then reading Jan’s words. It reminds us that with faith…all things are possible. Thanks for the encouraging reminder!

    Hate to tell you this, but the evidence seems to suggest that Ron Wyatt was not entirely trustworthy. His claims are highly controversial and not accepted by most serious bible scholars.

    Thank you for your words. It has becoming increasingly difficult in the ministry. There are times when the churches future looks grim.When you know that work God has called you to looks impossible.
    I needed to be reminded that God will make a way where there seems to be no way.
