Wesley's Notes for Exodus 14:23


14:23 And the Egyptians went in after them into the midst of the sea - They thought, why might they not venture where Israel did? They were more advantageously provided with chariots and horses, while the Israelites were on foot.

    Let every one who loves our Lord Jesus Christ, take heed to what happens in this chapter! The same heathen spirit of antichrist that turned the hearts and minds of the world under Nimrod against the knowledge of the truth and a life of faith and piety toward God and His Anointed; the same that was in the Egyptians and all of Israel's evil neighbors; is the same that works in the world to this day.

    By any stretch of the imagination this is one of the greatest chapters in the bible. It was a battle between God and the enemy and God prevailed teaching man we can trust him when the situations seems totally lost and hope less. Good encouragement when we have our backs to the wall.
