The Biggest Mathematical Miracle in the World

Moses and the people were in the desert, but what was he going to do with them? They had to be fed, and feeding 2-3 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 1500 tons of food each day. To bring that much food EACH day, it would require 2 freight trains, each a mile long, each day. Besides this, you must remember, there were out in the desert, so they'd have to have firewood to use in cooking the food. This would take 4000 tons of wood and a few more freight trains, each a mile long, just for ONE day. And ... just think, they were 40 years in transit.

Now ... what about water? Where were they again? Oh, yeah, the desert. If they only had enough to drink and wash a few dishes, it would take 11 million gallons EACH day, and a freight train with tank cars, 1800 miles long ... just to bring water!

Then another thing ... when they crossed the Red Sea ... they did it in one night. Now, if they went on a narrow path, double file, the line would be 800 miles long and would require 35 days and nights to get through. So, there had to be a space in the Red Sea, 3 miles wide so that they could walk 5000 abreast to get over in one night.

But then, there's another problem ... do you think Moses figured all this out before he left Egypt? I think not! (40 years in the wilderness was not part of the initial plan.) You see, Moses believed in God. God took care of these things for him. Now ... do you think God has any problem taking care of all YOUR needs?

May God bless you abundantly, and make you a blessing to others,
