How did Moses part the Red Sea?
Here's the answer:
Moses didn’t part the Red Sea. God did!
When Moses and the Israelites left Egypt, soldiers followed them and tried to bring them back. Once Moses and the Israelites got to the Red Sea, God performed a miracle to save His people!
The Bible tells us that Moses stretched out his hand over the Red Sea, and God drove back the water with a strong east wind. As a result, the sea was divided on the left side and right side with dry ground for the people to cross on dry land (Exodus 14:21-31).
Once the nation of Israel had crossed on dry ground, God told Moses to stretch out his hand over the sea. The water came back together and the Egyptians died in the water.
God used Moses to lead the Israelites to safety.
"Then Moses reached out his hand over the Red Sea. All that night the LORD pushed the sea back with a strong east wind. He turned the sea into dry land. The waters were divided. The people of Israel went through the sea on dry ground. There was a wall of water on their right side and on their left" (Exodus 14:21-22).
"The Egyptians chased them. All Pharaoh’s horses and chariots and horsemen followed them into the sea… Then the LORD spoke to Moses. He said, 'Reach out your hand over the sea. The waters will flow back over the Egyptians and their chariots and horsemen.' So Moses reached out his hand over the sea. At sunrise the sea went back to its place. The Egyptians tried to run away from the sea. But the LORD swept them into it. The water flowed back and covered the chariots and horsemen. It covered the entire army of Pharaoh that had followed the people of Israel into the sea. Not one of the Egyptians was left. But the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground..." (Exodus 14:23-29).
