Hebrews 11:29 (ESV)
Heroes of Faith
29 By faith the people crossed the Red Sea as on dry land, but the Egyptians, when they attempted to do the same, were drowned.

This is a short verse, but I have been having a lot of them, because the Heroes of Faith section in Hebrews 11 flies through them.  I had to stop at this verse, because this verse concludes Moses and tomorrow’s will be about Joshua.  One of the greatest miracles (one of them), is the parting of the Red Sea.  There were roughly 600,000 men who crossed.  If each of these men were married and had at least 2 kids, then we are talking about 2.4 million people.  This is probably a conservative guess.  That is a huge amount of people crossing over on “dry land.”  I hear the History Channel trying to explain that the chariots got bogged down in the mud and the Israelites attacked and killed them.  The latest Moses movie called Exodus, also botches the scene by having both parties treading through water.  The Bible is very clear that it was “dry ground.”  The “dry ground” adds to the miracle of the Red Sea crossing.  Moses led the people by faith.

I pray: O Lord, use me in my community to lead people to your heavenly kingdom.  You are the potter, I am the clay.  You dictate what I will be, not the other way around. Amen.

Look at the Words say they "fell away". The had it, but lost it. Just like the Bible says your name can be blotted out of the Book of Life.
