A new way to think
about how Moses fed everyone...
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.
Think of it! This much space for camping.
God took care of these things for him.
