Exodus Chapter 11

Exodus 11

1And the LORD said unto Moses, Yet will I bring one plague more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go hence: when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether.

2Speak now in the ears of the people, and let every man borrow of his neighbour, and every woman of her neighbour, jewels of silver and jewels of gold.

3And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.

4And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt:

5And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.

6And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.

7But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

8And all these thy servants shall come down unto me, and bow down themselves unto me, saying, Get thee out, and all the people that follow thee: and after that I will go out. And he went out from Pharaoh in a great anger.

9And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.

10And Moses and Aaron did all these wonders before Pharaoh: and the LORD hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go out of his land.

  1. 9 horrible plagues have devastated the land. Now comes the one that will hit right at home. The Pharoah was considered among the people to be a God, and now the heir to the throne is being threatened.

    No doubt great emotion rose in Pharoah. However it says that Moses left seething in anger.

    Here is him confronting his previous family for the final straw, yet Pharoah was still hardened.

    Moses on the other hand, walked with God, and as a result, he became highly respected among the people of Egypt.

    When God said it was time, the wealth of the wicked was just given to them without grudging.

    Trust God. He knows what he is doing. He made the worldly king to stink, Moses to shine, and millions of Hebrew slaves rich over night.

    It was a rough 10 plagues but in the end It was more than worth it all. God was preparing them for promise.

  2. Whenever an artist is painting; he has to mix colors to the paint, and add turp, primer etc.

    When vinyards make wine; they take the most durable of grapes. They diliberately put them through stress, to pick the best. They over water them, let them go w/o water, allow too much sun light etc.

    Whenever God is getting ready to make a comeback.. everything seems to be falling apart. Just when you think the last straw has fallen, He makes a way. Not all the plagues effected the Isrealites personally; their children, livestock, or land. But, they were slaves to the ones who were being effected. No easy task I imagine.. talk about physical and spiritual warfare.

    The plauges communicate that the gods the Egyptians trust aren’t truly gods (Ex 12:12). The bull god Apis, the goddess Isis, and the ram god Khnum are associated with the power and blessings of the Nile River. The Nile is called the bloodstream if Osiris, the god of earth and vegetatian. The first plague undermines the supposed authority of these deities, and each subsequent plague communicates a similar message. Heqt, the goddess of birth, has a frogs head. Ra, the sun god, is represented as a fly. Hathor is a goddess with a cow’s head. Nut, controls the sky, and Sekhmet is thought to protect against disease and boils. The tenth plague, with its death of first born has enormous spiritual implications. The Egyptians believe that Pharaoh and his first born are gods. Piece by piece God is dismantling the false beliefs and hopes of the most powerful nation on earth and showing that he is the true God through a nation of displaced slaves.

    What we can learn from them is, through all the plagues they held on. When they were told to put the blood of the lamb over their doorpost they obeyed, and by that same obedience we too are saved by the blood of the Lamb.

  3. v 9 And the Lord said to Moses, “Pharoah shall not hearken unto you; that my wonders may be multiplied in the land of Egypt.”
    A reminder that there are those who will refuse to listen when we tell of deliverance they can experience through Christ. Yet, we must continue to be faithful to take the message.

  4. 7But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

    The Lord doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel. If there is not a difference between us and the world than we are on the wrong team. We must be brought out, in the world but not of the world, a peculiar people… To quote Sis. Porsche, ” You’ll either be strange to God or to the world.” I don’t want to be strange or seen as a stranger to the Lord. Be Church!

  5. V.7But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how doth the Lord put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel. Any one can say I’m a “Christian” but the LORD knows who truly belong to him. He sees the difference in us. Do our actions, attitudes, speach,thoughts, ect, show the difference? Or are we like Egypt?

  6. The Lord’s people were blessed with favor, silver and gold. The Lord over looks nothing
    They responded immediately in obedience to
    GOD’s Word.
    It was a pay- day for over four hundred years of slave labor for Egypt.

    GOD has things for us we have never dreamed.
    We don’t have it all. As we trust and obey
    His Word. Keep seeking. Keep believing.

  7. 6 And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.

    Vengeance is the Lords! This story began with israel crying out to God and now God is turning it back on the Egyptians. Had the Israelites taken matters in their own hands they easily could have failed and not had much impact (comparatively ) if they had succeeded. Allowing God to work, He avenged them more than they could have imagined! Let’s let God be in control! He’s got our back

  8. Moses told Pharaoh that God made a distinction between Egypt and Israel. At this time the distinction was very clear in God’s mind: He knew the Hebrews would become his chosen people. The distinction was taking shape in Moses’ mind also, but the Hebrews still saw the distinction only in terms of slave and free. Later, when they were in the desert, God would teach them the laws, principles, and values that would make them distinct as his people. Remember that God sees us in terms of what we will become and not just what we are right now.

  9. And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.

    When he left Egypt it was in fear of his life for killing an Egyptian, but the Bible says the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt.

    After all the plagues the Egyptians could have blamed Moses.

    but he was very great in the land of Egypt. When the world respects you and what you stand for, you will be blessed from their treasures, and you will be the one they come to for you will be great in their eyes,

  10. 3And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians…

    When God shows His favor in our lives, people bend over backwards just as they did for the Israealites for the oppertunity to help.

  11. 3And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.

    People look to for great leaders. Moses was an old man, a murderer, slow speaker, and who fled Egypt. Moses earned the respect and honor not only from his own people, but also from many Egyptians. He showed his faith, trust and love for God at all times. Let all continue to hold fast in Jesus and those around us will respect us for it. Let us not be lukewarm.

  12. 3And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.

    7But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

    God is so good !!

  13. v1……and the lord said unto Moses, yet will bring one plague more upon Pharaoh and Egypt afterwards he will let you go hence, when he shall let you go, he shall surely thrust you out hence altogether……

    when we let God handle our problems things turn out so much better than if we handled them ourselves

  14. DISTINCTIVE SEPARATION

    7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

    Egypt is identified throughout the scriptures in a comparison to the modern day world and its system of bondage. It has never been and never will be approved of GOD for HIS people to act like, look like and live like anything that represents the bondage of this world and its selfish, self serving, sinful lifestyle.

    The LORD is the one that put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel. There should be distinctive differences between the church and the world and its system.

    GOD expects IT!

    Lets get IT!

    BE Church
    BE Separate

  15. 3And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.

  16. V4-5 “4 And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt: 5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts.”

    1 Thess 5:2 “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.”

    2 Peter 3:9-10,13 “9 The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

    10 But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

    13 Nevertheless we, according to his promise, look for new heavens and a new earth, wherein dwelleth righteousness.”

    1 Thess 5:4-10 “4 But ye, brethren, are not in darkness, that that day should overtake you as a thief.

    5 Ye are all the children of light, and the children of the day: we are not of the night, nor of darkness.

    6 Therefore let us not sleep, as do others; but let us watch and be sober.

    7 For they that sleep sleep in the night; and they that be drunken are drunken in the night.

    8 But let us, who are of the day, be sober, putting on the breastplate of faith and love; and for an helmet, the hope of salvation.

    9 For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ,

    10 Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him.”

    2 Cor 6:2 “(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)”

  17. 4 Then Moses confronted Pharaoh: “God’s Message: ‘At midnight I will go through Egypt5 and every firstborn child in Egypt will die, from the firstborn of Pharaoh, who sits on his throne, to the firstborn of the slave girl working at her hand mill. Also the firstborn of animals.6 Widespread wailing will erupt all over the country, lament such as has never been and never will be again.7 But against the Israelites-man, woman, or animal-there won’t be so much as a dog’s bark, so that you’ll know that God makes a clear distinction between Egypt and Israel.’ (MSG)

    God has always desired and always will desire separation of HIS people from the world. We know that EGYPT is a type of the world…

    Stay separated, Stay submitted.

  18. 3And the LORD gave the people favour in the sight of the Egyptians. Moreover the man Moses was very great in the land of Egypt, in the sight of Pharaoh’s servants, and in the sight of the people.

    Even in a time of your life that you feel as if you are in Egypt, God will give you favor in the sight of everyone around you. He will raise you up to be great in His kingdom and pull you out of your situation as long as you stay submitted and under His covering.

  19. 6And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.

    7But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

    Even at the beginning of creation through now, God has always had a separation of his people. He sent the plague of the first born dying, but vs 7 says that the Children of Israel (man or beast) nothing was done.

    Those that are protected by the name of Jesus even now, can know that although we do go through some test and trials, we are set apart and can only be tested at the approval of our loving Savior. Everything goes through Him. We are set apart, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, chosen by God.

  20. This chapter screams listen while you can. All are fools if they go against the Word of God and his anointed. One would be wise to harken before it is too late and destruction has come. May the good Lord Bless you all in Jesus name, Amen
