FACT OR FICTION? Does it really matter?
 New way to think about how Moses fed everyone.
 Read and feel comforted.
 Amazing Data on Moses
 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  require 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.
 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 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 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,
 1800 miles long, just to 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 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 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.
 Think of it! This much space for camping.
 Do you think Moses figured all this out  before he left Egypt? I think not!
 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?
 Our God is an Awesome God!
 So when the road you're traveling on seems difficult at best,  just remember,  keep on praying,  and God will do the rest.

In 1954, when Ben Gurion was prime minister, he travelled to the USA to meet with President Eisenhower to request his assistance and support in the early and difficult days of the State of Israel. John Foster Dulles who was the then secretary of state confronted Ben Gurion and challenged him as follows:

“Tell me, Mr. Prime Minister – who do you and your state represent? Does it represent the Jews of Poland, perhaps Yemen , Romania , Morocco , Iraq , Russia or perhaps Brazil ? After 2000 years of exile can you honestly speak about a single nation, a single culture? Can you speak about a single heritage or perhaps a single Jewish tradition?”

Ben Gurion answered him as follows:

“Look, Mr Secretary of State – approximately 300 years ago the Mayflower set sail from England and on it were the first settlers who settled in what would become the largest democratic superpower known as the United States of America. Now, do me a favour - go out into the streets and find 10 American children and ask them the following:

·         What was the name of the Captain of the Mayflower?

·         How long did the voyage take?

·         What did the people who were on the ship eat?

·         What were the conditions of sailing during the voyage?

I’m sure you would agree with me that there is a good chance that you won’t get a good answer to these questions.

Now in contrast – not 300 but more than 3000 years ago, the Jews left the land of Egypt . I would kindly request from you Mr. Secretary that on one of your trips around the world, try and meet 10 Jewish children in different countries. And ask them:

·         What was the name of the leader who took the Jews out of Egypt ?

·         How long did it take them before they got to the land of Israel ?

·         What did they eat during the period when they were wondering in the desert?

·         And what happened to the sea when they encountered it

            Once you get the answers to these questions, please carefully consider the question that you have just asked me!”
