Feeding the Israelites in the Wilderness‏

Seen this b/4 but still great reminder! 

Jehovah can take care of us, the ALMIGHTY!

Feeding the Israelites

So does anyone have questions about the oncoming Great Tribulation? This should set our minds at ease. 

Moses and the people were in the desert, but what was he going to do with them? They had to be fed, and feeding 2 or 3 million people requires a lot of Food!!! 

According to the Quartermaster General in the Army, it is reported that Moses would have to have had 1,500 tons of food each day. Do you know that to bring that much food each day, two freight trains, each at least a mile long, would be required! 

Besides, you must remember, they were out in the desert, so they would have to have the firewood to use in cooking the food. This would take 4,000 tons of wood and a few more freight trains, each a mile long, just for one day. 

And just think, they were forty years in transit. And Oh Yes! They would have to have water. If they only had enough to drink and wash a few dishes, it would take 11,000,000 gallons each day and a freight train with tank cars 1,800 miles long, just bring water! 

AND THEN ANOTHER THING: 

They had to get across the Red Sea at night. Now, if they went on a narrow path, double file, the line would be 800 miles long and would require 35 days & nights to get through. So there and to be a space in the Red Sea totaling 3 miles wide ~ so that they could walk 5,000 abreast to get over in one night!! 

But then, there is ANOTHER PROBLEM......each time they camped at the end of the day: A campground two-thirds the size of the state of Rhode Island was required, or a total of 750 square miles long ... required, or a total of 750 square miles long... Think of it! This much space just for camping!!! 

(My favorite part) 

Do you think Moses figured all this out before he left Egypt? I think not!! You see, Moses believed in Jehovah God and had Faith in Him! And Jehovah took care of these things for Moses!! Now, do you think Jehovah has any problem taking care of all of our needs? 

May Jehovah continue to guide & protect you as you daily read His Word & apply His Principles in your life. 

May his love be always with you, knowing that his promises are true. And when we give Him all our problems & anxieties, He will see us through! 

Our God, Jehovah, is The Almighty God!!!
