Jesus said in John 5:39 that the entire Old Testament testifies about Him. And this means everything. In fact, in 1 Corinthians 10:1-2, we see that the account of Moses leading Israel from Egypt and across the Red Sea also speaks of Jesus and, amazingly, the Holy Spirit. We see the cloud and the sea and the Holy Spirit and Jesus all in one incredible Biblical account. Consider the following:
Moreover, brethren, I do not want you to be unaware that all our fathers were under the cloud, all passed through the sea, all were (what) baptized into Moses (how) in the cloud and in the sea. (1 Corinthians 10:1-2).
What does this mean? And how does this analogy from Exodus 13 and 14 point towards Christ and the baptism of the Holy Spirit?
What About The Cloud And The Sea And The Holy Spirit?
Reading further, we find the entire event at the Red Sea and the appearance of the cloud of God was all for our benefit. In fact, they were examples to us of something greater. And soon we will find out the something greater is the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
Now all these things (cloud, sea, baptism) happened to them (Israel) as examples (to us), and they were written for (what) our admonition, upon whom the ends of the ages have come. (1 Corinthians 10:11).
We are just beginning to discover about the baptism of the Holy Spirit as revealed in the Old Testament as we explore how the cloud and the sea picture the Holy Spirit. So join with us as we look deeper into this amazing and mysterious truth.
