Do not Fear

Exodus 14:14 (AMP): “The LORD will fight for you while you [only need to] keep silent and remain calm.”

I love this Scripture because it advises us to be silent after praying and see the hand of Yeshua’s work in our lives when trouble looms.

The Egyptians followed the Israelites after the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, meaning HE made him stubborn and defiant once again. So, Pharaoh pursued the Israelites to the Red Sea. Many people think the Red Sea is the Reed Sea, which is much closer to the land of Goshen, Egypt, but that is incorrect. If you read Exodus 14, the entire chapter, you will learn the sons of Israel walked from Goshen to the Red Sea. The Red Sea lies at the southern end of the Sinai Peninsula, formerly known as the Straits of Tiran in ancient times. (See attached map)

To deceive Pharaoh into thinking they became lost, the Israelites followed the voice of Moses, who supernaturally heard El Shaddai—set up camp at Pi-hahiroth, a location between Migdol and the sea.

Instructing the people to be silent, the LORD directed their attention to the actions to bring Him glory. (Exodus 14:14)

The Angel that led the Israelites moved to protect them from the approaching Egyptian army—even in daylight, fire, sandstorms, and darkness encircled Pharoah’s army.

Now, the Angel, a theophany representing God, the embodied pre-incarnate Christ, ensured the safety of the Israelites throughout the night. In Genesis 16:7, this event brings to mind the scene where Hagar runs to a life-saving spring in the desolate wilderness.

In Exodus 14:20, “So it came between the camp of Egypt and the camp of Israel. It was a cloud along with darkness [even by day to the Egyptians], but it gave light by night [to the Israelites]; so one [army] did not come near the other all night.” (Exodus 14:20-25a AMP)

Darkness on the Egyptian side and light on the Israeli side was a supernatural event. The pillar of the cloud gave the people enough time to escape to the wilderness of Shur. As the Egyptians attempted a pursuit, God sent confusion; the time was the morning watch, the last early nighttime (3 a.m. - 6 a.m.). As the sun rose, the Egyptian army’s chariots became powerless against the might of Father God. Then, the army gave up, knowing Almighty God was working for the sons of Israel. It was too late for them. The water came crashing upon them when Moses raised his hand.

The lesson here is we should be mindful of what we say, think, or do to others. Father God’s wrath is passive while the church is still on earth, but after the church leaves, the full wrath of Messiah Yeshua will be dominant with no grace or mercy for the wicked people of the world.
