29At midnight the Lord struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn of the prisoner, who was in the dungeon, and the firstborn of all the livestock as well. 30Pharaoh and all his officials and all the Egyptians got up during the night, and there was loud wailing in Egypt, for there was not a house without someone dead. 31During the night Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, “Up! Leave my people, you and the Israelites! Go, worship the Lord as you have requested. 32Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go. And also bless me.”   (Exodus 12: 29-32, NIV)

 

EXODUS 9-12

DAY 107: JOURNEY THROUGH THE BIBLE IN A YEAR

Focus Verses For Today: Exodus 12:29-32

On today’s journey through Exodus, we revisit Pharaoh refusing to allow the Israelites to leave Egypt, and God sending another judgment on the Egyptians. It is amazing how far some people will go to challenge God’s plan!

Take a some time ask God to give you His understanding of Exodus 9-12. Read Exodus 9-12. Let’s journey!

Chapters 9-11 tell of Pharaoh’s refusal to allow the Israelites to leave Egypt. Each time Pharaoh refuses to allow the Israelites to leave Egypt, God sends a plague on the Egyptians to show them that He, God of Israel, is God. (Exodus 9:1-11:10)

In chapter 12, God gives Moses and Aaron instructions regarding the Festival of Unleavened Bread and the Passover meal. The instructions were very detailed and to be followed meticulously. God passed through Egypt killing the first born of all human and livestock, (Exodus 11:4-8) as God warned Pharaoh would happen if Pharaoh continued to refuse to allow the Israelites to leave Egypt. Pharaoh directed the Israelites to leave Egypt. The Exodus had begun.(Exodus 12:1-51)

Our focus verses for today:

29At midnight the Lord struck down all the firstborn in Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sat on the throne, to the firstborn of the prisoner, who was in the dungeon, and the firstborn of all the livestock as well. 30Pharaoh and all his officials and all the Egyptians got up during the night, and there was loud wailing in Egypt, for there was not a house without someone dead. 31During the night Pharaoh summoned Moses and Aaron and said, “Up! Leave my people, you and the Israelites! Go, worship the Lord as you have requested. 32Take your flocks and herds, as you have said, and go. And also bless me.”   (Exodus 12: 29-32, NIV)

Do you know someone who refuses to change troubling ways until calamity arrives? Pharaoh appears to be that type of person. A person who refuses to consider all the facts that confront him. He may have been a person who just could not discern fact. He was to wrapped up in his gods - gods that approved of his actions. As we enter the second day of Holy Week, commit to studying the Bible, the true Word of the True God. It is a life changing decision. Godspeace!
