Oh, My Heavens! Part 2

In Oh, My Heavens! Part 1, I tried to show how the story of Noah and the flood is revealed in the ancient Hebrew pictographs in the Hebrew word for "the heavens" in Gen. 1:1. Now, I will show how Moses and the parting of the Red Sea is also revealed in hashamayim (the Hebrew word for "the heavens"). I will not go over all of the spelling and ancient Hebrew pictographs that make up "the heavens" again, if you want to review those please read Part 1. However, so that you see Moses clearly, I need to give a quick recap. Hashamayim is spelled HEY (H), SHIN (Sh), MEM (M), YOD (Y) and MEM (M).

Moses, in Hebrew, is Moshe. Moshe is spelled MEM (M), SHIN (Sh) and HEY (H). When Pharoh's daughter finds Moses in the river, "[S]he named him Moses, saying, 'I drew him out of the water.'" Gen. 2:10. Hashamayim is also a visual representation of Moses being drawn out of the water. Here is the picture, notice the arm extending into the water and drawing Moses out.

While I believe the story of Moses is represented in hashamayim in other ways, the other most notable is Moses' dramatic parting of the Red Sea. Quickly, let us look at Exodus 14:21-22, "Then Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and all that night the LORD drove the sea back with a strong east wind and turned it into dry land. The waters were divided, and the Israelites went through the sea on dry ground, with a wall of water on their right and on their left."

Though it might not have been necessary, I have made some alterations to the graphic representation for visual effect. Here is Moses stretching out his hand and the waters being divided.
