Exodus 15: The Song Of The LORD's Victory

"I will sing unto the LORD, for He hath triumphed gloriously"

After the LORD (Who was and is Jesus Christ; see Genesis 1: In The Beginning Was The Word and The Kingdom Of The LORD God), delivered the Israelites, with their Christian baptism, through the sea ("10:1 Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; 10:2 And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea; 10:3 And did all eat the same spiritual meat; 10:4 And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ." 1 Corinthians 10:1-4 KJV), they celebrated with a "song unto the LORD."

Song of Deliverance

"15:1 Then sang Moses and the children of Israel this song unto the LORD, and spake, saying,

I will sing unto the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously: the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea [see Exodus 14: Crossing The Sea]. 15:2 The LORD is my strength and song, and he is become my salvation: he is my God, and I will prepare him an habitation; my father's God, and I will exalt him. 15:3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name. 15:4 Pharaoh's chariots and his host hath he cast into the sea: his chosen captains also are drowned in the Red sea. 15:5 The depths have covered them: they sank into the bottom as a stone. 15:6 Thy right hand, O LORD, is become glorious in power: thy right hand, O LORD, hath dashed in pieces the enemy. 15:7 And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee: thou sentest forth thy wrath, which consumed them as stubble. 15:8 And with the blast of thy nostrils the waters were gathered together, the floods stood upright as an heap, and the depths were congealed in the heart of the sea.

15:9 The enemy said, I will pursue, I will overtake, I will divide the spoil; my lust shall be satisfied upon them; I will draw my sword, my hand shall destroy them. 15:10 Thou didst blow with thy wind, the sea covered them: they sank as lead in the mighty waters.

15:11 Who is like unto thee, O LORD, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? 15:12 Thou stretchedst out thy right hand, the earth swallowed them.

15:13 Thou in thy mercy hast led forth the people which thou hast redeemed: thou hast guided them in thy strength unto thy holy habitation. 15:14 The people shall hear, and be afraid: sorrow shall take hold on the inhabitants of Palestina. 15:15 Then the dukes of Edom shall be amazed; the mighty men of Moab, trembling shall take hold upon them; all the inhabitants of Canaan shall melt away. 15:16 Fear and dread shall fall upon them; by the greatness of thine arm they shall be as still as a stone; till thy people pass over, O LORD, till the people pass over, which thou hast purchased. 15:17 Thou shalt bring them in, and plant them in the mountain of thine inheritance, in the place, O LORD, which thou hast made for thee to dwell in, in the Sanctuary, O Lord, which thy hands have established. 15:18 The LORD shall reign for ever and ever. 15:19 For the horse of Pharaoh went in with his chariots and with his horsemen into the sea, and the LORD brought again the waters of the sea upon them; but the children of Israel went on dry land in the midst of the sea." (Exodus 15:1-19 KJV)

While Moses is recognized as the leader of Israel at that stage of their history (see Israel In History and Prophecy: Moses) and that Aaron became the first high priest (see The Origin Of The Levite Priesthood), many do not realize that their sister Miriam (who played a key role in Moses being adopted into the Pharaoh's palace; see Exodus 2: The Drawing Of Moses) was a "prophetess."

The Nile River

"15:20 And Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a timbrel in her hand; and all the women went out after her with timbrels and with dances.

15:21 And Miriam answered them, Sing ye to the LORD, for he hath triumphed gloriously; the horse and his rider hath he thrown into the sea." (Exodus 15:20-21 KJV)

While some incorrectly teach that Mount Sinai (its name alone proves where it is - in the Sinai) is in what is today known as Saudi Arabia (a country that has existed in name only since the 1920s) because they fail to understand the full extent of "Arabia" (see Paul's Geography Lesson to understand that the Sinai is in Arabia), Mount Sinai is in reality in the Sinai Peninsula. Further obvious proofs are included in the Scriptures e.g. after crossing the sea "they went out into the wilderness of Shur." Shur is recorded a number of times in the Bible, including when Hagar left Hebron (see Genesis 21: The Birth of Isaac and The Expulsion Of Hagar and Genesis 16: The LORD's Seed Promise To Hagar), in southern Israel, on her way back to her native Egypt - a route that goes straight through the northern Sinai Peninsula, no where near what is today known as Saudi Arabia: "16:1 Now Sarai Abram's wife bare him no children: and she had an handmaid, an Egyptian, whose name was Hagar ... 16:6 But Abram said unto Sarai, Behold, thy maid is in thy hand; do to her as it pleaseth thee. And when Sarai dealt hardly with her, she fled from her face. 16:7 And the angel of the LORD found her by a fountain of water in the wilderness, by the fountain in the way to Shur." (Genesis 16:1,6-7 KJV)

"15:22 So Moses brought Israel from the Red sea, and they went out into the wilderness of Shur; and they went three days in the wilderness, and found no water. 15:23 And when they came to Marah, they could not drink of the waters of Marah, for they were bitter: therefore the name of it was called Marah. 15:24 And the people murmured against Moses, saying, What shall we drink?

15:25 And he cried unto the LORD; and the LORD shewed him a tree, which when he had cast into the waters, the waters were made sweet: there he made for them a statute and an ordinance, and there he proved them,

15:26 And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the LORD thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the LORD that healeth thee.

15:27 And they came to Elim, where were twelve wells of water, and threescore and ten palm trees: and they encamped there by the waters." (Exodus 15:22-27 KJV)

This Day In History, September 27

1066: William I (known as William the Conqueror) and his marine army sailed from the mouth of the Somme River across the English Channel to begin the Norman Conquest of England. A descendant of Viking raiders, William had been Duke of Normandy since 1035 under the name William II. By 1060 his control of Normandy was secure; he then launched the Norman conquest of England in 1066, whereby he became the first Norman King of England, reigning from 1066 until his death in 1087.

William the Conqueror 1290: An earthquake in China killed 100,000 people.

1331: The Battle of Plowce between the forces of the Kingdom of Poland and the Teutonic Order.

1396: Thousands of Church of Rome "Crusaders" (see Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy) who had been taken prisoner by Ottoman (i.e. Turkish; listen to our Sermon The Ottoman Empire) forces under Sultan Bayazid at the Battle of Nicopolis the day before were beheaded. Among those executed were members of the royal families of France, Germany and Burgundy.
The Ottoman Empire was one of the longest in human history. It occupied a vast area of Europe and the Middle East, including the land of Israel, for centuries. It was the fall of the Ottoman Empire to the British Empire that permitted the present-day state of "Israel" (which is actually Judah; see Israel In History and Prophecy: Israel Of Judah) to come into existence (see A History Of Jerusalem: The British Mandate).

1529: The Siege of Vienna began when Suleiman I attacked the city (see also A History Of Jerusalem: Constantine and Muhammad).

1540: The Church of Rome's Pope Paul III gave approval to Ignatius Loyola for the founding of the Society of Jesus, known as the Jesuits (see Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy).

1590: Pope Urban VII died 13 days after becoming Pope, making his reign the shortest papacy in history (see also The Struggle For The Papacy).

1605: The armies of Sweden were defeated by the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth in the Battle of Kircholm.

1669: The island of Crete in The Mediterranean Sea fell to the Ottomans after a 21-year siege.

1785: The "Episcopal Church" in the U.S. was founded when Anglicans met in Philadelphia to create a denomination independent of the Church of England. The Episcopalians left (but continued the erroneous doctrines of) the Church of England, that left (but continued the erroneous doctrines of) the Church of Rome. All 3 were and are "state religions" (i.e. the Church of Rome, the Church of England, the Episcopal Church" of the United States) that deny the Biblical Truth of the Church of God - which knows and recognizes no man-made political boundaries (see also What Is The Church? and What And Where Is Babylon Today?; also A Biography Of Abraham: Abrahamic Religions).

1791: Jews in France were granted French citizenship.

1821: Mexico declared independence from Spain (Texas succeeded from Mexico 15 years later, in 1836).

1822: Jean-François Champollion announced that he had deciphered the Rosetta stone.

1825: In England, the first locomotive to haul a passenger train was operated by George Stephenson.

1854: The first great disaster involving an Atlantic Ocean liner occurred when the steamship Arctic sank with 300 people aboard.

1905: The physics journal Annalen der Physik received Albert Einstein's paper "Does the Inertia of a Body Depend Upon Its Energy Content?." The paper introduced Einstein's famous E=mc2 equation.

1918: During the First World War (listen to our Sermon The European World Wars), Canadian commandos stormed the Canal du Nord, a section of the German Hindenburg Line, capturing over 7,000 prisoners and 205 artillery guns.

1923: Martial law was declared in Germany.

1939: Warsaw, Poland capitulated to the invading German forces (see Presidential Quotes On War, Terrorism, Religion).

1959: A typhoon battered the Japanese island of Honshu, killing almost 5,000 people.

1964: The Warren Commission released the official report of its investigation of the assassination of President John Kennedy with the conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald was the shooter and that he acted alone. "Conspiracy theorists" continue to disagree with the findings with various counter-claims e.g. Oswald could not have fired shots from 2 different directions at the same time, FBI marksmen found it nearly impossible to repeat the rate of fire and accuracy using Oswald's cheap, bolt-action rifle that, as well, was later found to have a bent sight that would have caused Oswald to fire nearly a foot above, and to the left, of Kennedy's head at that range.

1970: King Hussein of Jordan and Al Fatah guerrilla leader Yasser Arafat met in Cairo with 10 Arab chiefs of state and signed an agreement ending civil war in Jordan.

1996: In Afghanistan, Taliban forces seized control of Kabul and hanged former President Najibullah.

2008: Zhai Zhigang became the first Chinese astronaut to do a "spacewalk," from Shenzhou 7.
