Waters Divided (Exodus 14) Acrylic Seascape by Arizona Artist Amy Whitehouse

This painting began as an abstract but then developed into a representation, to me anyway, of God's deliverance of the Israelites when they were fleeing Pharoah's years of persecution and specifically Pharoah's soldiers. The Book of Exodus states that Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the Lord drove the sea back with a strong east wind, and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground...the historical account goes on to describe the death of all the Egyptian soldiers. How interesting that this painting is my posting for today. Many of our friends are suffering in one way or another, my beloved uncle died 2 weeks ago today, there seems to be an increase in the general public's rude, impatient manner, much dis-ease among many. But God delivers His people, and our Redeemer lives. 24"x12"x1.75" $299 Let me know if this piece of art interests you: The vagaries of life, and the ravages of time seem evermore apparent. In another time of confusion and disappointment, many of Jesus' disciples were deserting Him. Jesus asked the Twelve, "you do not want to leave too, do you?" Peter answered him "Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life." I will follow His words.
