The Second Book of Moses Called Exodus
The Firstborn Bible Warning
The Firstborn in the Bible Story Explained
There you are! Glad you're back so soon to find out what happens next
in our story about Moses in Egypt and the plagues that God has
brought upon Pharaoh.
It's time in God's plan to bring everything to a memorable conclusion
for Pharaoh. The Lord said to Moses, I'm going to bring just one more
plague to Pharaoh and Egypt and after that, he'll let you go. When he
lets you go, he will throw you out altogether.
Go and tell the people to ask their neighbors for jewels of silver
and gold. And God gave his people approval in the Egyptians eyes and
Moses was very respected by Pharaoh's servants and people.
Moses told the people, both the Egyptians and the children of Israel,
This is what the Lord says: About midnight I will go out amidst
Egypt, and all the firstborn in the land of Egypt will die, from the
firstborn of Pharaoh who sits on the throne to the firstborn of the
maidservant that works behind the mill and all the firstborn of the

The Firstborn in the Bible Prophecy
There will be a dreadful cry throughout all the land of Egypt like
there has never been before or will ever be again. But of the
children of Israel, none will be harmed so that you'll know how the
Lord feels differently about the Egyptians and Israel. And all of
Pharaoh's servants shall bow themselves to me and say, Get out and
all the people that follow you, and after that I will go out. Moses
was very angered when he left Pharaoh.
Then the Lord told Moses, Pharaoh will not listen to you so that my
wonders may grow in the land of Egypt. Moses and Aaron did all these
wonders in front of Pharaoh and the Lord hardened Pharaoh's heart so
that he wouldn't let the children of Israel go out of his land.
Let's talk about Moses' character for a moment. It bears mentioning
that Moses believes strongly in justice. Don't forget that forty
years earlier, he killed an Egyptian that was beating a Hebrew slave,
and Moses, even though he was by blood a Hebrew, was raised as an
Egyptian. However, in the name of justice, he felt it necessary to
defend righteousness. It's no wonder that by the time he delivered
the announcements of 10 plagues on Pharaoh and Egypt, that he would
become a little angry with Pharaoh. And it's no wonder that God chose
Moses for the job of delivering His people out of bondage in Egypt.
