Episode 13 – Exodus 7–13 “Remember This Day, in Which Ye Came Out from Egypt”

 

From the manual

Plague after plague afflicted Egypt, but Pharaoh still refused to release the Israelites. And yet God continued to demonstrate His power and give Pharaoh opportunities to accept “that I am the Lord” and “there is none like me in all the earth” (Exodus 7:59:14). Meanwhile, Moses and the Israelites must have watched with awe at these manifestations of God’s power in their behalf. Surely these continued signs confirmed their faith in God and strengthened their willingness to follow God’s prophet. Then, after nine terrible plagues had failed to free the Israelites, it was the tenth plague—the death of the firstborn, including Pharaoh’s firstborn—that finally ended the captivity. This seems fitting because in every case of spiritual captivity, there truly is only one way to escape. No matter what else we may have tried in the past, it is with us as it was with the children of Israel. It is only the sacrifice of Jesus Christ, the Firstborn—the blood of the Lamb without blemish—that will save us.

    Thank you for your podcasts. I share this podcast with friends and family because I enjoy your faith, insights, humor and the uplift you give my in my day. Thank you for your efforts, you make a big difference in the world!

    I love the Old Testament! Joseph had real staying power! By that I mean he stayed with the Lord always, and I was amazed (look up synonyms for amazed and that should give you ideas of what I really feel about how Joseph played out his “I’m going to have you Come to Egypt” plan with his brothers!

    Moses’s story is a real kick also! My imagination takes me down a different path from yours, so when I add yours to mine, I get enriched!

    Thank you for helping me feel a bit of hope that Jesus will forgive and will help me.

    A couple of times I have looked to donate but didn’t. Here is my problem: I do not want a monthly donation coming out of my account. I know that is best but doesn’t work for my situation. Could you add a “One Time Donation” spot on your website? That way, from time to time, I could donate.

    BTW, if it is already there, could you tell me where it is? I may just be missing it. (my ADD brain jumps around sometimes and that is entirely possible!)

      You’re so nice and I totally understand! I don’t know how to do a one time donation on Patreon. I have a Venmo? It’s @Melanie-Stroud2 But you’re totally fine NOT TO DONATE. It’s ok. Hopefully soon I won’t need it and I can shut it down!
