Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. 1 Cor. 15:58

On the Road Again (Day 20/365)

Day 20: Exodus 10-12

Main People:
Moses, Aaron, Pharaoh, Israelites, First Born Sons

Key Points:
            *We have new plagues to talk about. And I didn’t put three from yesterday’s reading, so I’ll go back and add those.
  • Livestock—All of the Egyptian livestock die—none of the Israelites
  • Boils—(ouch!) Horrible boils break out everyone in Egypt
  • Hail—Hailstorm kills all the slaves and animals left outside. Destroyed almost every plant
  • Locusts—Covered Egypt and ate everything left after the hail
  • Darkness—Total darkness covered Egypt so thick you could feel it
  • Death of first born—The one that made Pharaoh so scared and angry, he let them leave.

*430 years after Jacob and his family moved to Egypt, they left.

*600,000 Israelite men left, along with women, children and a rabble of non-Israelites. It’s estimated that 2 million people left!

Verses that Jumped Out at Me:
Exodus 11:8—Moses had a temper. Actually, he’s pretty famous for his temper, but God used him. No matter your ‘faults’ God has a purpose for you J

Would you have wanted to leave Egypt if you were an Israelite? Would you have been one of the ‘rabble’ of non-Israelites who went with them?

Tomorrow’s Reading: Exodus 13-14

*On January 31st, I’ll have a giveaway (I’m doing this at the end of every month). It will have to do with the reading (so I hope you’re keeping up ;) ) This month’s prize is an ebook copy of my book CROSSING THE DEEP and a $5 Amazon Gift Card
