The Red Sea of Emotions


The Sea is the big mass of angry, destructive emotional barrier to Man. It contains the destructive locusts.


EX 10:12 And the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over Egypt so that locusts will swarm over the land and devour everything growing in the fields, everything left by the hail."


    EX 10:13 So Moses stretched out his staff over Egypt, and the LORD made an east wind blow across the land all that day and all that night. By morning the wind had brought the locusts; 14 they invaded all Egypt and settled down in every area of the country in great numbers. Never before had there been such a plague of locusts, nor will there ever be again. 15 They covered all the ground until it was black. They devoured all that was left after the hail--everything growing in the fields and the fruit on the trees. Nothing green remained on tree or plant in all the land of Egypt.


    EX 10:16 Pharaoh quickly summoned Moses and Aaron and said, "I have sinned against the LORD your God and against you. 17 Now forgive my sin once more and pray to the LORD your God to take this deadly plague away from me."


    EX 10:18 Moses then left Pharaoh and prayed to the LORD. 19 And the LORD changed the wind to a very strong west wind, which caught up the locusts and carried them into the Red Sea. Not a locust was left anywhere in Egypt. 20 But the LORD hardened Pharaoh's heart, and he would not let the Israelites go. 


EX 14:21 Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, 22 and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left.


    EX 14:23 The Egyptians pursued them, and all Pharaoh's horses and chariots and horsemen followed them into the sea. 24 During the last watch of the night the LORD looked down from the pillar of fire and cloud at the Egyptian army and threw it into confusion. 25 He made the wheels of their chariots come off so that they had difficulty driving. And the Egyptians said, "Let's get away from the Israelites! The LORD is fighting for them against Egypt."


    EX 14:26 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Stretch out your hand over the sea so that the waters may flow back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen." 27 Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and at daybreak the sea went back to its place. The Egyptians were fleeing toward it, and the LORD swept them into the sea. 28 The water flowed back and covered the chariots and horsemen--the entire army of Pharaoh that had followed the Israelites into the sea. Not one of them survived.


    EX 14:29 But the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left. 30 That day the LORD saved Israel from the hands of the Egyptians, and Israel saw the Egyptians lying dead on the shore. 31 And when the Israelites saw the great power the LORD displayed against the Egyptians, the people feared the LORD and put their trust in him and in Moses his servant.


EX 15:1 Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the LORD:


  "I will sing to the LORD,

    for he is highly exalted.

  The horse and its rider

    he has hurled into the sea.


  EX 15:2 The LORD is my strength and my song;

    he has become my salvation.

  He is my God, and I will praise him,

    my father's God, and I will exalt him.


  EX 15:3 The LORD is a warrior;

    the LORD is his name.


  EX 15:4 Pharaoh's chariots and his army

    he has hurled into the sea.

  The best of Pharaoh's officers

    are drowned in the Red Sea.


  EX 15:5 The deep waters have covered them;

    they sank to the depths like a stone.


  EX 15:6 "Your right hand, O LORD,

    was majestic in power.

  Your right hand, O LORD,

    shattered the enemy.


  EX 15:7 In the greatness of your majesty

    you threw down those who opposed you.

  You unleashed your burning anger;

    it consumed them like stubble.


  EX 15:8 By the blast of your nostrils

    the waters piled up.

  The surging waters stood firm like a wall;

    the deep waters congealed in the heart of the sea.


  EX 15:9 "The enemy boasted,

    `I will pursue, I will overtake them.

  I will divide the spoils;

    I will gorge myself on them.

  I will draw my sword

    and my hand will destroy them.'


  EX 15:10 But you blew with your breath,

    and the sea covered them.

  They sank like lead

    in the mighty waters.


  EX 15:11 "Who among the gods is like you, O LORD?

    Who is like you--

        majestic in holiness,

        awesome in glory,

        working wonders?


  EX 15:12 You stretched out your right hand

    and the earth swallowed them.


  EX 15:13 "In your unfailing love you will lead

    the people you have redeemed.

  In your strength you will guide them

    to your holy dwelling.


  EX 15:14 The nations will hear and tremble;

    anguish will grip the people of Philistia.


  EX 15:15 The chiefs of Edom will be terrified,

    the leaders of Moab will be seized with trembling,

  the people of Canaan will melt away;


    EX 15:16 terror and dread will fall upon them.

  By the power of your arm

    they will be as still as a stone--

  until your people pass by, O LORD,

    until the people you bought pass by.


  EX 15:17 You will bring them in and plant them

    on the mountain of your inheritance--

  the place, O LORD, you made for your dwelling,

    the sanctuary, O Lord, your hands established.


  EX 15:18 The LORD will reign

    for ever and ever."


    EX 15:19 When Pharaoh's horses, chariots and horsemen went into the sea, the LORD brought the waters of the sea back over them, but the Israelites walked through the sea on dry ground. 20 Then Miriam the prophetess, Aaron's sister, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women followed her, with tambourines and dancing. 21 Miriam sang to them:

  "Sing to the LORD,

    for he is highly exalted.

  The horse and its rider

    he has hurled into the sea."
