A 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.
Pass this to people you want God to bless. If you have missed knowing me, you have missed nothing. If you have missed some of my emails, you may have missed a laugh. But, if you have missed knowing my LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST you have missed everything in the world!!!!

I had never really thought about the number of people Moses must have been dealing with. I had just assumed it had been 100,000 or 200,000 at the most. but then considering how long God's people had been in Eygpty (400 years) I could see how the population could have grown to over a million, the logistics are staggering
