Exodus 7 & 8
God is in control! We see this clearly in Exodus 7 and 8 in the signs and wonders of the 10 plagues that God will send as judgment. The 10th plague is the final one where the first born of Egypt are killed. Dividing the other 9 plagues into 3 equal sections, you will notice that the Lord will warn Pharaoh before committing the first 2 plagues in each group, but the third plague will come without warning. We will spend weeks looking intently at these plagues that happened so long ago to the ancient Jews, because they are pictures of those things that can “plague” us and keep us from God’s best. God has told Moses several times what the outcome will be. God will show his power, but Pharaoh will harden his own heart; then God Himself will harden Pharaohs heart, but ultimately Israel will be set free. Each of these plagues focuses on an Egyptian god. It is our Mighty God showing his supreme authority over the gods of this world.
