Laymen’s Corner

There was one more plague GOD brought on the gods of Egypt. His name was Pharaoh. Pharaoh was worshiped by the Egyptians as the god of everything. Some thought he was the son of Ra, the sun god. This plague will be the final one and after it, Pharaoh will almost “drive” Israel out of Egypt.

This plague was the death of all the first born children and animals in Egypt. GOD told Moses how Israel could escape this plague so their first born would not be killed. They were to kill a lamb and put the blood on the sides and top of their doors. Remember the song,

“When I see the blood I will pass over you”. Israel was instructed to be ready to leave early in the morning. They were told to borrow everything from the Egyptians they could. In other words, they were to spoil the Egyptians and take gold, silver, clothes and anything else they could carry. That was pay for over 400 years of slavery they went through.
