Did you know……

I thought it would be interesting to see where the plagues from the Old Testament originated from. Most of us probably think the plagues God brought upon the land of Egypt were just some random plagues to get Pharoh to let the children of Israel go. I for one did not know that God strategically chose each plague. Each successive plague, sent by God, was aimed at the gods of Egypt. Each was designed to convince the Pharoh that the Lord was superior to their idols and false gods.

  1. Nile turns to blood versus Hapi and Osiris (Nile gods).
  2. Frogs versus Heqet (frog goddess).
  3. Lice versus Khepri (divine scarab).
  4. Flies versus Uatchit (fly god).
  5. Livestock death versus Apis and Hathor (cow deities)
  6. Boils versus Imhotep (divine healer).
  7. Hail versus Qetesh (st0rm god)
  8. Locusts versus Isis (goddess of fertility).
  9. Darkness versus Ra (sun god).
  10. Death/Slaying of Firstborn versus Ptah (god of life).

I love how God does things. You see, our God who is One, will not share His glory with any other god. Rest assured, you will always loose when it comes to God Almighty. Today people have cars, jewelry and houses and their god’s (along with other various inanimate gods that religions have made deities).

Deuteronomy 6:4 says “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God [is] one LORD:”  Remember, our great God is superior to any other god out there today, so freely choose to serve Him and Him alone. You can start by following Acts 2:38 which simply says “Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.”

  1. This is too awesome, Bro! I mean I’ve never had a problem accepting the plagues as God’s means of smiting the Egyptians – – but I have never heard, nor have I ever made the connection between the plagues that the Lord smote the Egyptians with, with their belief in false deities, idols and gods.

    Knowing that the Lord can display His power like that is awesome enough, but now knowing that truth deeper is even more awesome!

    Thanks for all the Biblical insight and revelation of our One True God and Savior that you share with us!

  2. This one is too easy! It’s so simple. When the assembled crowd on the Day of Pentecost asked Peter and the rest of the Apostles what they “had to do” in order to be saved, Apostle Peter stood up and simply said, “Repent, and be baptized, every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. For the promise is unto you (Acts 2:38-39).” Why so many (including Apostolics) try to muddle it up with a myriad of formulas in which to be saved, yak yak yak, is beyond me.

    Also, God is a Spirit. He robed Himself in flesh and dwelt among humanity as Jesus Christ. Now, He indwells the believer and His church in Spirit form. Any questions? I know that’s very simplistic — but in a nutshell that’s it.
