That could swell the number of travelers on the Exodus to between 1. At the beginning of the journey, this massive group of people was saved from the pursuing Egyptian army by this vehicle, and fed daily and provided water for 40 years. At times this vehicle would halt and hover over this group for months, providing shade during the day and light at night. The group would not travel if the vehicle was not moving forward.

Two million people walking 10 abreast, with 6 feet between rows, would extend for about miles. An interesting estimate of just the basic survival needs of such a large group of people, gives a perspective on how massive an operation this must have been. It would require tons, 2 million pounds of food every day just to ward off starvation, and we know from scripture that there was plenty to eat. To do this would require the equivalent of a freight train, a mile long, to deliver the food every day. Add to that a bare minimum of 5 million gallons of water per day, and that train would stretch beyond the horizon.
And, this went on, every day, for forty years. Amazingly, these verses are saying that the clothes and shoes of those in the Exodus traveling group never wore out in 40 years of constant use. There are some amazing phenomena described in relationship to UFOs, and this anomaly could very well be associated with the constant presence of the guiding and protecting vehicle hovering over them.
Healing of wounds, relief from chronic ailments, and other physical alterations are often reported by contactees. In the 16th Chapter of the Exodus, the close encounter begins in the wilderness of Sin. The people were beginning to question whether they were just on a wild goose chase and would die of hunger, in the middle of nowhere. Yhovah reveals to Moses that he will now begin to feed the people in two ways; by driving wild game into the encampment in the evening, and providing bread, manna, in the morning. As Aaron was telling this to the people, a vehicle appeared and that very evening, flocks of quail covered the camp.
This had to happen every day, as the manna had to be eaten before the next morning, or it would rot, with the specific exception of a double quantity they were required to gather on the day before the Sabbath; the only day the manna would not appear. And when the dew that lay was gone up, behold, upon the face of the wilderness there lay a small round thing, as small as the hoar frost on the ground. It is logical; therefore, that Psalms is describing very nutritious food.
While camped at Rephidim. Moses was also given the power to bring water from rocks. A Direct Encounter with Yhovah In the 19th Chapter of the Exodus, the people experience a prolonged encounter with a great craft about two weeks after the food miracle and the warding off an unsuccessful attack by Amalek, the chief of an Idumean tribe.
The defeat of Amalek is a miracle in itself, and involves what seems to be Moses using some form of psychokenesis. Exodus Yhovah demands that a strict perimeter be established around mount Sinai, where the vehicle is about to land, and the people are warned that breaching that perimeter could cause death to humans and animals. The craft is so huge, it causes the million-plus people witnessing it to tremble at the bright lights and terrible sounds coming from it.
Moses goes up the mountain and into the vehicle, and Yhovah reinforces his warning about the deadly perimeter. Moses goes back down the mountain, warns the people, and Yhovah begins to speak directly to them, giving his commandments from the vehicle. These commandments continue from the 20th through the 23rd chapters of Exodus.

In the 24th chapter, after the vehicle has been on the mountain for 6 days, Yhovah calls Moses back up into the vehicle, where he remains for 40 days, receiving instructions for a mobile tabernacle, the Ark of the Covenant, and other items from models Moses sees in the vehicle verse Yhovah gives minute details of everything in the tabernacle, and the rituals and restrictions to be performed in it, and personally writes it all down on stone tablets with his own hand.
Moses is Transformed and the Long Journey Begins While Moses is gone, the attention span of the people proves to be very short, and they build a pagan altar, which Moses breaks in anger. After this discretion is dealt with, Moses returns to the vehicle and Yhovah makes him rewrite the edicts and he brings these new tablets to the people.
Moses oversees the building of the tabernacle and the ark and the vehicle leads the Hebrew nation through the wilderness for the next 40 years. This means that this could either be a column or a platform that had the appearance of a cloud in the daylight and, when the sun went down, it was illuminated.
And, it was staying close to the people, in other words, hovering. When considered, in light of the many other descriptions, replacing the word platform where pillar appears seems a more logical choice.

The platform comes directly between the Hebrews and the pursuing Egyptian army. Exodus The platform harassed the Egyptian army. Exodus The Lord ascended on Mount Sinai, with great lights beaming into the night sky, shaking the mountain greatly, and broadcasting very loud sounds, with increasing volume. Exodus , People were fearful of the vehicle. Exodus , , Psalms The people follow the platform wherever it led them, and it was always with them. Exodus , Numbers , , Nehemiah The cloud provided shade and light. Numbers 9: 22 The cloud took off from the ground and landed on the ground.
Numbers The vehicle protected the people. Deuteronomy A reading of the Exodus Encounter will give a more complete view of this year close encounter. In the next installment of Close Encounters of the Biblical Kind we will cover the other famous contacts experienced by Elijah and Ezekiel, and more testimonies from biblical contactees.
It would require, at least, an entire book to detail all the close encounters in the Bible. So, we will just cover the more recognizable events, and those not so recognizable, but important. We continue this article with the strange encounters of Elijah, Elisha, and Enoch.
Elijah, the Tishbite, is originally sent by God to Ahaziah, the king of Samaria, who had just been injured in a fall from an upper story window. He was sent because Ahaziah had attempted to find whether he would die from this injury from Baal, a special deity of the Ekronites and warn him that he would succumb to his injuries. This event can be found in 2 Kings 1. Ahaziah did die from his injuries and the story immediately shifts to Elijah traveling to the Jordon River with Elisha in 2 Kings 2.
Along the way, at Bethel and Jericho, Elisha is told by prophets that Elijah would be taken away by the Lord. In the Bible, this word is also translated into the word for a bird, the crane. In other words, it can be used for horse, bird, leap, skip, or rapid flight.

Considering we know that neither pigs, nor horses, can fly, we must assume that the author of this description is referring to either the bird, leap, skip, or the rapid flight aspects of this Hebrew word. We know that UFOs spin and that they are reported to project very animated beams of light down from them that draw people and other objects up into them. Woe unto us!
After the first encounter, he immediately returned to Samaria and, along the way, parted the waters of the Jordan River to get across as Elijah had done.
He stopped off in Jericho and purified the poisoned water that had left it without the ability to grow food. He created a great quantity of oil to help a widow settle her debts, much as Jesus was to create wine for the wedding feast in the future. If you've had a particularly strong bond with a beloved dog who died, God may allow you to see an image of your former pet in a dream or vision so you'll pay close attention to a message that God wants to convey to you.
God may arrange for you to encounter either a live dog in the flesh or a see a spiritual image of a dog in order to communicate a symbolic message to you through that experience. When you experience dogs in this way, they're called animal totems. Animals stretch our boundaries, prompt us to ask great questions again of ourselves and of existence.
Finally, God can speak to you powerfully every day that you interact with your own dog or other dogs you know, believers say. Dogs offer people "an ordinary, extraordinary grace," writes Houston in Mystical Dogs. They teach us, love us, care for us even when we are uncaring, feed our souls, and always, always give us the benefit of the doubt. With natural grace, they give us insight into the nature of the good and often provide us with a mirror of our better nature, as well as a remembrance of once and future possibilities. Anderson write that "dogs exhibit spiritual qualities in abundance.
I have had conditions cured. I have had moments of joy so intense that they were unearthly, or more precisely divine. I have also had moments so dark and low that my passage through them is evidence of an encounter with God. God has been there, most intensely on the mountain tops and in the deepest darkest valleys.
There are many more, much less dramatic, encounters with Him. It can happen when a pain suddenly stops or frightening loneliness unexpectedly vanishes. Our God is so great and glorious that a Divine Encounter of the Third Kind, an actual sighting, is more than we can handle.
