IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT THESE INTERPRETATIONS DO NOT REPLACE THE READING OF THE BIBLE BUT MERELY PLACE VARIOUS MATTERS IN THE CORRECT CONTEXT AND HIGHLIGHT VERY IMPORTANT POINTS!!
MOST IMPORTANTLY, THROUGHOUT THE BIBLE, JEHOVAH GOD ONLY “GIVES” US WHAT WE AS HUMANS “NEED” TO KNOW ABOUT HIM, HIS INTENTIONS, HIS PLANS AND HIS DESIRES!!
CONTINUING WITH THE BOOK OF EXODUS
EXODUS Chapter 07
A very brief interpretation of Chapter 07 will follow:
JEHOVAH GOD informed Moses that HE had made Moses as a “god” in comparison to Pharaoh and Aaron HE had made a “prophet” of Moses.
JEHOVAH GOD further informed Moses that HE would “harden” Pharaoh’s heart so as to be able to show by “SIGNS” and “WONDERS”, NOT ONLY TO PHARAOH, but to all the people worldwide that live or lived after Pharaoh, how CAPABLE and ALMIGHTY HE is.
Moses was 80 years old and Aaron 83 years old at that time.
Then JEHOVAH GOD instructed Moses and Aaron to perform a miracle before Pharaoh and they had the rod changed into a serpent.
The Magicians of Egypt were also able to change rods into serpents but the serpent of Moses swallowed up all their serpents; but Pharaoh was obstinate again.
Moses was then instructed to go to Pharaoh the next morning when he was by the river and again ask him to release the Israelites; when he “hardened” his heart once again Moses was to use the rod and turn the river and all the waters used by the Egyptians into blood.
The fish would all die and the stench would be unbearable; and the Egyptians would not want to drink of or use the water at all.
Every drop of water, even those in vessels in the homes, was turned to blood.
Pharaoh still, however, “hardened” his heart, even though the magicians tried to reverse the situation but to no avail, and for seven days the waters remained as blood.
My next Post should cover EXODUS: Chapter 8
