Ten Plagues of Egypt
  • Context The plagues that God put on the Egyptian
    nation are contextually implanted in the intense
    story of the Exodus of Israel from Egypt to the
    promised land.
  • Joseph Historically the Exodus culminates 400
    years of voluntary settlement tuned captivity by
    Jacob and the brothers of Joseph, having been
    sold by His brothers, was sold again in Egypt.
    There, he endured difficult times for about ten
    years until God given gift of interpreting dreams
    placed Joseph at the right hand of the King,
  • Josephs position In this position, Josephs
    godliness, business acumen, position and
    reputation allowed Egypt to become the 400 years
    home of Israel.
  • Josephs bones Joseph, knowing Israels stay in
    Egypt was temporary, distinguished himself, when,
    By faith, Joseph made mention of the exodus of
    the sons of Israel, and gave orders concerning
    his bones. Heb. 1122
  • Israels 400 year captivity Following the death
    of Joseph, Israel endured captivity and about 400
    years in apparent silence by God.
  • God _at_ work However, God was at work, and in the
    process of preparing Moses and the Israelites.
    By faith, Mosesfor he was looking to the
    reward. Heb 1124-26

    unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine
    hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their
    streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds,
    and upon all their pools of water, that they may
    become blood and that there may be blood
    throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels
    of wood, and in vessels of stone.
  • 2. Frogs
  • 82 And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I
    will smite all thy borders with frogs
  • 83 And the river shall bring forth frogs
    abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine
    house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed,
    and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy
    people, and into thine ovens, and into thy
    kneading troughs

    and upon thy people, and upon all thy servants.

    Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of
    the land, that it may become lice throughout all
    the land of Egypt.
  • 4. Flies
  • 821 Else, if thou wilt not let my people go,
    behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee,
    and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and
    into thy houses and the houses of the Egyptians
    shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the
    ground whereon they are.
  • 5. Livestock Diseased
  • 93 Behold, the hand of the LORD is upon thy
    cattle which is in the field, upon the horses,
    upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen,
    and upon the sheep there shall be a very
    grievous murrain.

  • 6. Boils
  • 98 And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron,
    Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and
    let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the
    sight of Pharaoh.
  • 99 And it shall become small dust in all the
    land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth
    with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout
    all the land of Egypt.
  • 7. Thunder and Hail
  • 918 Behold, to morrow about this time I will
    cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as
    hath not been in Egypt since the foundation
    thereof even until now.
  • 8. Locusts
  • 104 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go,
    behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into
    thy coast
  • 105 And they shall cover the face of the earth,
    that one cannot be able to see the earth and
    they shall eat the residue of that which is
    escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail,
    and shall eat every tree which groweth for you
    out of the field.
  • 9. Darkness
  • 1021 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out
    thine hand toward heaven, that there may be
    darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness
    which may be felt.
  • 1022 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward
    heaven and there was a thick darkness in all the
    land of Egypt three days
  • 10. Death of the Firstborn
  • 114 And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About
    midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt
  • 115 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt
    shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that
    sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn
    of the maidservant that is behind the mill and
    all the firstborn of beasts.

Ten Plagues of Egypt
  • Purpose of 10 Plagues
  • Gods self revelation
  • Pharaoh will refuse to listen to you, so My
    wonders may be multiplied in Egypt. Ex 9-16,
  • Bring judgment on Gods of Egypt
  • and I will bring judgment on all the Gods of
    Egypt, I am the Lord. Ex 1212
  • Free Israelites
  • let My people go
  • Lasting testimony
  • that you may tell your children and
    grandchildrenmay know that I am the Lord. Ex

  • Lessons/ Conclusions
  • Prophecy of Pharaohs Son / Temporal vs.
    Eternal In the beginning, God told Pharaoh that
    he would kill his son, which he did in the 10th
    plague. Pharaoh knew the outcome he just didnt
    believe it
  • In a sense, we know the end from the beginning.
    We know everything is spiritual. We may live for
    temporal/eternal II Cor 416 18
  • II Cor 710
  • I Cor 312 15
  • Participation in Deliverance.
  • God mandated Israels participation in His
  • - God may require our participation in
  • - God never does for a man, what he can do for

Ten Plagues of Egypt
  • Lessons/ Conclusions
  • Election Election is truly a sign of Gods
    mercy. Egypt to this day rails against the Jews.
    In spite of the story of the Exodus, todays
    Egyptians do not turn to the God of Moses
    Aaron, just as Pharaoh did not. Nor do most
    people of the world. Nor would we.
  • Fear of Man Moses outgrew his fear of man. Get
    out of my sight! Make sure you do not appear
    before me again! The day you see my face you will
    die. Ex 10 28
  • This is what Moses was afraid of in the
    beginning. Moses has changed. He no longer fears
    Pharaoh, and retorts back, just as you say, I
    will never appear before you again. Ex 10 29
  • Moses has changed. The exhibitions of the powers
    of God have been lost an Pharaoh, but not on
  • Additionally, Lord made the Egyptians favorably
    disposal to the people, and Moses himself was
    highly regarded in Egypt by Pharaohs officials
    and by the people. Ex 11 3
  • Moses pronounced the 10th Plague, Then Moses,
    hot with anger, left Pharaoh. Ex 11 8B

  • Lessons Conclusions
  • - Blood none gt important 1st 10th Blood
  • - 2nd Chances God may give chances 2nd
    chances / may not
  • - Saying NO to God is likely to become a
    pattern and the stakes usually get higher
    starting down a path of sin often takes us
    further than we ever intended
  • Example David / Pharaoh
  • - Big Sin We dont commit huge sin all of a
  • - Sin in Vacuum We dont sin in a vacuum. All
    Egypt paid for the sine of Pharaoh.
  • - Leaders are especially culpable
  • - God / Suffering God takes notice of the
    suffering of his people (audience of 1)

Ten Plagues of Egypt
  • Lessons Conclusions
  • Special Calling Special calling of God does
    not necessarily cushion us from the trials,
    pains, weakness and temptations of life
  • - It just may mean that people watch us go
    through it
  • - Suffering is often a blessing Moses learned
  • - John McCain change from flyboy to man of
    his country.
  • - Make the most of opportunities of know God
    and learn about the ways of God especially in
    times of revelation suffering.
  • - Israel saw the acts of God, but Moses knew
    His ways.
  • Moses was a student of God.
  • Get to know the ways of God!

Ten Plagues of Egypt
  • Lessons Conclusions
  • - Death of the Firstborn Final plague had to do
    with the efficacy of shed blood being required
    for deliverance form death, redemption being
    bought and fellowship w/ God and his people
    being bought with blood.
  • - Following deliverance, redemption and blood
    related to the moment of Exodus, the law was
    given, requiring a lifestyle of blood sacrifices
    which resulted in atonement, a covering for
    sin, all of which foreshadowed the blood
    sacrifice of Jesus Christ, resulting in
    propitiation, a payment in full for sin not
    just covering.
