Gilbert House Fellowship #276: Exodus 7-9

IT’S A showdown on the Nile between the God of the Hebrews and the gods of Egypt. However, contrary to what we’ve been taught, the gods of Egypt in Moses’ day weren’t all Egyptian gods.

We discuss the first seven plagues of the Exodus and why we believe a one-to-one correspondence between the plagues and Egyptian gods doesn’t give us the full picture. Psalm 78:48-49 reveals that the seventh plague (hail and fire), which will be echoed in the first trumpet judgment of Revelation 8:7, was the work of supernatural entities called Barad (“hail”) and the Reshephim (“thunderbolts”), described as “a company of destroying angels.”

    Pharoah is also tanniyn (dragon, sea monster, crocodile (See Ezek. 32:2).

    His heart was hardened: harden is kavod: to make weighty, as a stone. He couldn’t quit because God wanted more to come against him.

    Lice are also sand fleas, which embed under the skin, and boils were on the priests as well so that they couldn’t minister. That means all worship stopped. When we yield to the work of God, all worship of evil has to stop.

    Foolish Pharoah wanted to wait until the next day rather than the same day to stop a plague.

    Flies are scarab (dung) beetles. Eqyptians worshiped them as a god.

    Foreshadows: plagues 1-3 are challenges of God’s existence; 4-6 are challenges of the Son’s providence; last 3 are challenges of God’s power (the Holy Spirit).

    Sharon and Derek: the joy in your hearts are evidenced by your hearty laughs!
