History of Israel

The Pillar of Cloud

When the Lord led the people of Israel out of Egypt, he went before them in a pillar of cloud by day and of fire by night. (See Exodus 13:21-22) When the chariots of Egypt met up with the Israelites at the Red Sea, the cloud changed into position and stood between the Israelites and the Egyptians in such a way that the Egyptians were unable to come after the Israelites. (See Exodus 14:19-20) The Lord divided the waters of the Red Sea, and when Pharaoh’s soldiers tried to follow, the Lord looked through the pillar of cloud and “troubled the army of the Egyptians.” (Exodus 14:24) This cloud was the leading factor in the lives of the Israelites. It led them to Sinai. It was present when Israel tragically put herself under the Law, when the Israelites made and worshipped the golden calf, when the original tables of stone were broken by Moses, and during the building of the Tabernacle.
