If you think as the people think of the word literally or carnally you see Peter fishing and the nets being filled. But if you think of these things spiritually, you see the kingdom of heaven is as a net. The disciples are then fishers of men. They don't fish and cast their net at the believers, they cast it in the sea, the sea of disbelief. The sea of iniquity or even say the sea of gallalee meaning the sea of the gentiles. The church is the ship they go out on and the waves are waves of terror or treachery and the storms are storms of discontent. When the fishermen went fishing Peter put on his robes when he saw Jesus and Jesus was there on dry land with the fire of coals burning. The coals you throw on the enemies head when he sends his fiery darts at you. So the word has covered the earth as the sea but whet there is Jesus, the waters are receided and this is dry land. So when Jesus got in the boat when he walkes to them above the water over the sea , imedeitly they were on the other side. On the other side of life. When Jesus called his disciples , they asked where he dwelt and he said follow me and they went up into the mountains. Com up heither. See, it has nothing to do with the water as people think, it has to do with dwelling in the place where the waters are receided. You can see the dove come to Jesus like with Noah to show us the iniquity was being held back and the waters are receided. There is also things like the pillars of the temple. The pillars are hewn out of Rock from the mountains and the mountains. Righteousness is as a mountain and we must strive to go higher, seeking the higher righteousness and men become as pillars of the temple. You can live in a valley and be sitting on the mountain of God or you can be living on the mountain but dwelling in the valley of the shadow of death. Its not whet we are, it is where we are in our walk with the Lord and seeking the higher righteousness is climbing that great mountain of God.

What an excellent reply, very insightful and quite profound, again thank you, God bless :)

The "dry land" is Zion. It is the "parched place", but it is not to remain so.

"I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids,

Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob." Psalm 132"4-5

"And Jesus saith unto him, The foxes have holes, and the birds of the air have nests; but the Son of man hath not where to lay his head." Matt 8:20

So Jesus is to rest where?

"For the LORD hath chosen Zion; he hath desired it for his habitation.

This is my rest for ever: here will I dwell; for I have desired it." Psalm 132:13-14

And when He is able to rest His head in Zion..., His people will no longer be a dry parched land

"Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me." John 17:20-21

"He that believeth on me, as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water." John 7:38

Have we touched on it, Colin?

   Well John, thats pretty well the way I see it too my friend. I see you bring into it the living waters. I allways saw the living waters as spiritual teachings or heavenly teachings, wisdom. To say God the father dwells in heaven would also be saying the place of heavenly teachings and as you say, so  much the same. The place of the elevated teachings of God and as a mountain or place up heither, higher righteousness. I love you so much brother, it is always a pleasure speaking with you. The part about coming out of the belly. From the things you have eaten will come spiritual teachings. I don't know how perfect that is.

Being "a bear of very little brain" the one point that has always seemed to show how the Lord blesses is the fact that after Moses held up his rod and the waters parted the ground was dry.

Just splitting the sea into two halves was great but to dry up the land as well what a blessing for the children of Israel.

Yet when the Egyptians tried to cross the Lord took off the chariot wheels so it seems for them the land was not a dry road.
It seems to me that who you are determines the road conditions you experience each day.

A good thought for the day James! Not only who we are, but consciously choosing to remember who we are, and , seeing things as He sees them.

As you say...walking across there on DRY land is as greater miracle as the waters rolling back!
