Aaron threw down his staff and it turned into a snake! The Egyptian magicians threw their rod down and they also turned into snakes. Aaron’s rod swallowed the snakes. Pharaoh was not impressed.
Moses and Aaron obeyed God and struck the water. The water turned to blood and the fish that were in the Nile died. The magicians of Egypt did the same.
Punished with many frogs. The magicians did the same with their secret arts. The LORD removed the frogs and they died. The Egyptians piled them in heaps. Pharaoh did not keep his promise.
Moses struck the dust of the earth, that it would become lice. There were lice on man and beast. The Egyptian magicians tried to recreate this plague but could not!
Next the LORD sent a great swarm of flies into Egypt. There were no flies where the Jewish people lived. Pharaoh said they could only go a short distance. The LORD remove the swarms of flies. Pharaoh changed his mind.
Pharaoh was warned that many of their animals would get sick and die. Moses also told Pharaoh that the Jewish animals would not die. Moses left Pharaoh and the next day many of the animals of Egypt died. But the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go.
Boils broke out on man and beast in all of Egypt. Boils are large and painful sores on a person’s skin. It would really hurt! Yet Pharaoh was stubborn and would not listen to Moses and Aaron.
The hail struck the animals in the fields and the crops and trees. They were killed and destroyed. Where the sons of Israel were, there was no hail. Pharaoh saw that the storm ended he changed his mind and would not let the sons of Israel go.
God promised a special promised land. They thought they could keep God from keeping his promises. No person, or king or even the Evil One can stop God from keeping his promises.
Pharaoh promised then lied and changed his mind. He hates you just like Pharaoh hated the Jewish people. The Evil One wants to keep you down. He wants the very worst for you.
Yeshua wants the very best and provides us freedom from the Evil One. He defeated the Evil One by His Death and Resurrection.
