10 plagues were foisted upon these people. The first six brought irritation, the next three, devastation, and the final plague, dread!
The previous day and night, they witnessed God's presence and protection upon Israel: the cloud and the pillar of fire.
And yet, they pursued after God's people into a dry path of the sea, walled on either side by a hundred feet of water.
Next thing they know, the walls have crashed upon them, their chariot wheels fell off and not a one of them could swim to shore.
Every Egyptian that undertook this sortie against Israel became a floater and washed up on the beach.
When will the lost learn NOT to fight against God and to treat His children equitably? How many set backs must occur, how many crop failures, how many (super)natural disasters, how many firstborn lost, how many flat tires until they realize, you don't mess with God or His anointed?
Those who oppose God and oppress His kids hope for smooth sailing, but may just end up as floaters.
