  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Exodus 11:1-10
    In this passage we come to the final plague upon Egypt; the death of the firstborn. It is a terrible judgment. It was a long time coming. Egypt had oppressed and killed Israelites for 400 years, The Lord had warned Pharaoh this would happen if he didn’t let Israel go. The previous nine plagues, though severe as can be imagined, had not humbled Pharaoh to the extent he complied.
