Red Sea - Revisited; plus all the pics of the Red Sea Crossing

Scripture: Isaiah 35 v 6-7a.


"Then shall the lame man leap as a hart, and the tongue of the dumb sing, for in the wilderness shall waters break out and streams in the desert. And the parched ground shall become a pool, and the thirsty land springs of water. "

 In the midst of much more heavy news items the following snippet was almost overlooked. It is a small step towards fulfilling the end time prophecy that Israel would sign a peace treaty with all the Arab nations to signal the start of the final 7 years.

Here is the article with map below:

"Representatives of Israel, Jordan and the Palestinians will on Monday sign a “historic” agreement to link the Red Sea with the shrinking Dead Sea, an Israeli minister said.

Energy and Regional Development Minister Silvan Shalom told army radio that under the agreement to be signed at the World Bank in Washington, water will be drawn from the Gulf of Aqaba at the northern end of the Red Sea.

Some will be desalinated and distributed to Israel, Jordan and the Palestinians, while the rest will be transferred in four pipes to the parched Dead Sea, which would otherwise dry out by 2050.

Shalom noted the economic aspects of supplying cheap desalinated water to neighbouring states, the environmental angle of “saving the Dead Sea” and the “strategic-diplomatic” aspect of the deal, being signed at a time when peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians are floundering.

“This is a breakthrough after many years of efforts,” he said. “It is nothing less than a historic move.” According to Yediot, the Palestinian Authority’s minister in charge of water issues, Shaddad Attili, and Jordanian Water Minister Hazem Nasser will be signing the agreement with Shalom.

Shalom said that following the signing, “an international tender will be issued for the entire project — building the desalination plant in Aqaba and laying the first of the four pipes.”  According to Yediot Aharonot newspaper, which first broke the story, the idea dates back to the 1994 signing of a peace treaty between Israel and Jordan.

The World Bank in 2012 published a feasibility study report on the project."


The scripture verse about the lame man leaping and the dumb one singing is possibly what this breakthrough is all about. At last there is progress; the lame efforts have at last got something to stand and cheer about. The dumb - the huffiness of these nations towards Israel - has found a reason to sing.

What really surprised me was the place of this desalination plant. It is just south of where the Israelites crossed the Red Sea in the northern part of the Gulf of Aqaba.

God has brought them back to the place of one of His greatest miracles. Near the place where He opened the Red Sea to help the Jews escape from Egypt and slavery, He is bringing life to the Dead Sea and fresh water into this arid region of Jordan, Palestine and Israel.

Miracles just keep on happening.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, anything that brings us closer to eternity with You is a miracle. Thank You for this new victory that brings the Peace Treaty back into reality because its the chief sign of the Second Coming of Jesus to Earth. Its what we long for Father. In Jesus' name. Amen.
