Then YAHUSHA said to Moses, “As I told you, the Pharaoh’s heart is hard, and he still refuses to let My people go. So go down to the river and surprise the Pharaoh in the morning while he’s worshipping his river-deity. Stand on the bank and make sure you take the stick that turned into a serpent. Then put this on him: ‘Yahuah, the Alahim of Yisharal, has sent me to you and He says, “Pharaoh, release My people at once, so they can serve and follow Me in the wilderness. Until now, you have refused to listen, so I’ll show you that I’m the only living Alahim Yahuah. I will strike the waters of the Nile and turn it into blood. The fish will die, and the river will stink, and your people won’t be able to drink any water from the Nile’”. Then tell Aaron to take your stick and raise it over the waters of Egypt, all its rivers, streams, ponds, and all the reservoirs so that all the waters turn to blood. Yes, there will be lots of blood, even all the water stored in wooden bowls and stone pots will be turned to blood.’”
So Moses and Aaron did just as YAHUSHA had commanded them. And as the Pharaoh and all of his crones looked on, totally gob-smacked, Aaron raised up his rod and struck the water of the Nile and the whole river turned to blood! The fish in the river died, and the water became so disgusting that the Egyptians couldn’t drink it.
There was blood everywhere throughout the whole land of Egypt. And when the Egyptians came to drink and draw water, they looked into their pitchers, and behold all the water was turned into blood; and when they came to drink from their cup, the water in the cup became blood. And when a woman kneaded her dough and cooked the food, it’s appearance looked red from the blood!
But again the magicians of Egypt used their magic, and they too, turned waters into blood. So again, the Pharaoh’s heart remained hardened and he refused to listen to Moses and Aaron, just as YAHUSHA had said he would. Infact the Pharaoh found the whole incident quite ‘ho-hum’ (yawn), and, returning to his palace he put the whole thing out of his mind. Then all the Egyptians dug along the riverbank to find drinking water, because they couldn’t drink the water from the Nile itself. And seven days passed from the time YAHUSHA struck the Nile.
PLAGUE OF FROGS
Then YAHUSHA said to Moses, “Go back to the Pharaoh and announce to him, ‘This is what Yahuah the only living Alahim says: Let My people go, so they can come and serve Me and if you dare refuse, I will dish you up a mighty plague of frogs, all across your entire land. The Nile River will swarm with frogs and they’ll come up out of the river and into your palace, even into your bedroom and onto your bed! They’ll enter the houses of your officials and all your people. They will even jump into your ovens and your kneading bowls. The frogs will jump on you, your people, and all your servants.’ Then tell Aaron to stretch out your shepherd’s rod over all the rivers, canals, and ponds of Egypt, and usher in the frogs all over the land.’”
So Aaron raised up Moses’s stick over the waters of Egypt, and frogs came up and covered the whole land! And when the Egyptians drank, their bellies were filled with frogs and they danced in their bellies as they do when in the river. And all their drinking water and cooking water turned to frogs, also when they lay in their beds, their perspiration bred more frogs!
But the magicians were able to do the same thing with their magic. They too, caused frogs to come up on the land of Egypt. Then the Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron and begged them, “Ask Yahuah to take the frogs away from me and my people and I will release your people, so they can offer sacrifices to Yahuah in the wilderness”.
“And when would you like this to happen?” said Moses,
“Gimme a time and we’ll be there, and the frogs will stay in the Nile River for good.”
“Dammit, do it tomorrow,”the Pharaoh barked.
“Alrighty, will do, and you will know O’ great Pharaoh, that there is no other Alahim like Yahuah. The frogs will leave you and your houses, your officials, and your people and they will remain only in the Nile River.”
And YAHUSHA did just what Moses had said and the frogs in the houses, the courtyards, and the fields all died and the Egyptians piled them into great heaps, and a terrible stench filled the entire land. But when the Pharaoh saw that relief had come, he became stubborn and hard-hearted again, refusing to listen to Moses and Aaron, just as YAHUSHA had said.
PLAGUE OF GNATS
So YAHUSHA said to Moses, “Tell Aaron to raise your stick and strike the dust of the ground and the dust will turn into swarms of gnats (lice) throughout the land of Egypt.”
So Moses and Aaron did what YAHUSHA instructed them and when Aaron raised his hand and struck the dust of the ground with the rod, gnats (lice) infested the entire land, covering all the Egyptians by almost a metre high. All the dust in the land of Egypt turned into gnats and infested the flesh of both man and beast, in all the Egyptians, and also the Pharaoh and his queen, and Egypt was in a state of panic.
The Pharaoh’s magicians tried to do the same thing with their dark magic, but they failed. And the gnats covered everyone, people and animals alike. The Pharaoh was furious with his sorcerers, but they couldn’t help him, “This is the finger of the living Alahim Himself!” they said, but the Pharaoh’s heart was rock-hard in unbelief and he wouldn’t listen to them, just as YAHUSHA had said.
PLAGUE OF FLIES
So YAHUSHA told Moses, “Get up early in the morning and stand right in the Pharaoh’s way as he goes down to the river to worship his pathetic dummy water-idol. Say to him, ‘Are you daft? Hard of hearing or just stupid? Yahuah says ‘Let my people go, so they can come and serve Me and If you won’t give in, I will send swarms of flies on you, your servants, your people, and all your houses. The Egyptian homes will be filled with flies, and the ground will be covered with them. But I will spare the land of Goshen, where my people Yisharal live. No flies will be found there, and you will know that I, Yahuah am right here in the heart of your land and I will make a clear distinction between My people and your people. So get your beauty sleep Pharaoh because this great sign will happen smack-bang tomorrow.’”
And YAHUSHA did just that! A thick swarm of flies filled the Pharaoh’s palace and the houses of his servants. The whole land of Egypt was thrown into chaos and ruin by all the flies. And YAHUSHA sent all kinds of beasts of the field into Egypt, and they came and destroyed all of Egypt, man and beast, and trees, and all the things that were in Egypt. And YAHUSHA sent fiery serpents, scorpions, mice, weasels, toads, together with others creeping in the dust. He sent flies, hornets, fleas, bugs and gnats, each swarming according to their kind. And all reptiles and winged animals came to Egypt and tormented the Egyptians day and night. And the fleas and flies came into their eyes and their ears and the hornets came and stung them, driving them into their inner rooms.
And when the Egyptians hid themselves because of the swarms of animals, they locked their doors behind them. Then YAHUSHA ordered the Sulanuth (sea creature) which was in the river, to come up into Egypt. And she had long arms, 5 metres long and she climbed onto their rooves and uncovered the rafting and flooring and cut them, and stretched her arms into the house and removed the lock and the bolt, and opened the houses of Egypt. And afterwards the swarms of animals went into the houses of Egypt, destroyed the Egyptians, devouring and completely devastating them.
So the Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron. “Alright!!! STOP THIS TORTURE AT ONCE!!! Go and offer sacrifices to your wretched Alahim, but stay here and do it in this land.”
And Moses replied, “Forget it! The Egyptians despise the sacrifices we offer to our Alahim Yahuah. You know very well that if we offer our sacrifices here where the Egyptians can see us, they will stone us to death. We must take a three-day trip into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to our Alahim Yahuah, just as He’s commanded us.”
OX AND CATTLE WERE CONSIDERED DIVINE TO THE EGYPTIANS (ESPECIALLY BULLS) AND IF THEY SAW YISHARAL SACRIFICING THEM THEY WOULD BE INFURIATED.
“Fine, for goodness sake, go!”the Pharaoh yelled. “I’ll let you go into the wilderness to offer sacrifices to your Alahim. But don’t think for a second that you’re going too far away. Now hurry and get rid of all these blasted plagues.”
And Moses answered, “As soon as I leave you, I’ll speak to Yahuah, and tomorrow the swarms of flies will disappear from you and your servants and all your people. But I‘m warning you Pharaoh, don’t play games with us and lie again or turn your nose up at us leaving.”
So Moses left the Pharaoh’s palace and asked YAHUSHA to remove all the flies. And YAHUSHA did as Moses asked and caused the swarms of flies to disappear from the Pharaoh, his servants, and his people. Not a single fly remained. But of course the wicked Pharaoh’s heart became stubborn and hard again, and he refused to let Yisharal go.
DEAD LIVESTOCK PLAGUE
And YAHUSHA said, “Go back to the Pharaoh again and tell him, ‘This is what Yahuah the Alahim of the Hebrews says: ‘Release my people from your stupidity, so they can serve Me in the wilderness. If you keep holding them and refuse to let them go, I will strike all of your livestock, (your horses, donkeys, camels, cattle, sheep, and goats), with a deadly plague and I will again make a distinction between the livestock of the Yisharalites and those of the Egyptians. Not a single one of Yisharal’s animals will die! I have already set the time for this plague to begin so brace yourself O` great Pharaoh, cause it’s happening tomorrow!’”
And YAHUSHA did just as He had said. The next morning all the livestock of the Egyptians were dead, but Yisharal didn’t lose a single animal. The Pharaoh sent his officials to investigate, and they discovered that Yisharal had not lost any livestock! But despite this, the Pharaoh’s heart remained stubborn, and he still refused to release ‘his’ Yisharalite slave-force.
PLAGUE OF BOILS
Then YAHUSHA said to Moses and Aaron, “Take handfuls of ashes from the furnace, and have Moses toss it into the air while the Pharaoh watches and the ashes will spread like fine dust over the whole land of Egypt, causing festering boils to break out on people and animals throughout the land.”
So they took the soot from the brick furnace and stood before the Pharaoh. And Moses threw all the ash into the air, and boils broke out on all the people and animals alike. The burning inflammation in the flesh of the Egyptians, burst their skin, and it became a severe itch from the soles of their feet to the crown of their heads. And so many boils were in their skin, that their flesh wasted away until they became rotten and putrid.
Even the magicians were unable to stand before Moses, because the boils had broken out on them and all the Egyptians too. But YAHUSHA hardened the Pharaoh’s heart, and just as He’d told Moses, the Pharaoh refused to listen.
PLAGUE OF HAIL
Then YAHUSHA said to Moses, “Get up early in the morning and stand before the Pharaoh. Tell him, ‘This is what Yahuah, the Alahim of Yisharal says: Let My people go, so they can follow Me in the wilderness and if you don’t, I will send more plagues on you, your servants, officials and your people. Then you will know that there is no one like Me in all the earth. By now I could have lifted my hand and struck you and your people with a plague to wipe you off the face of the earth, but I’ve spared you for a purpose, to show you My power and to spread My Name throughout the earth. But you still lift yourself up over My people and refuse to release them. So tomorrow at this time I will send a hailstorm more devastating than any in all the history of Egypt. Quick O’ mighty Pharaoh! Order your livestock and servants to come in from the fields to find shelter. Any person or animal left outside will die when the hail falls.’”
And some of the Pharaoh’s officials were afraid because of what YAHUSHA had said. They quickly brought their servants and livestock in from the fields. But those who paid no attention to the Words of YAHUSHA left theirs out in the open fields.
Then YAHUSHA said to Moses, “Lift your hand toward the sky so hail may fall on the people, the livestock, and all the plants throughout the land of Egypt.”
So Moses lifted his staff toward the sky, and YAHUSHA sent a tremendous hailstorm against all the land of Egypt and never in all the history of Egypt had there been a storm like it, with such devastating hail and continuous lightning and it left all of Egypt in ruins. The hail struck down everything in the open fields, (the people, animals, and plants alike). Even the trees were destroyed (All the flax and barley were ruined by the hail, because the barley had formed heads and the flax was budding. But the wheat and the spelt were spared, because they had not yet sprouted from the ground.)
And the only place without hail was the region of Goshen, where the people of Yisharal lived. The hail struck their vines and broke their fruit trees and dried them up, and every green herb became dry and perished, for a mingling fire was in the center of each hailstone, therefore the hail and the fire consumed all things. All men and beasts that were outside died because of the flames of fire and of the hail.
Then the Pharaoh quickly summoned Moses and Aaron, “I can see how my wickedness and evil has brought this upon my people. Yahuah is upright and good, and my people and I are wrong. Please beg Yahuah to end this terrifying thunder and hail. We’ve had enough. I will let you go. You don’t need to stay any longer.”
“Alright then,” Moses replied. “As soon as I leave the city, I will lift my hands and the thunder and hail will stop, and you will know that the earth belongs to our mighty Alahim Yahuah. But I know that you and your officials still do not fear Him yet.”
So Moses left the Pharaoh’s court and went out of the city and when he lifted his hands to YAHUSHA, the thunder and hail stopped and the pelting rain ceased. But when the Pharaoh saw that the rain, hail, and thunder had stopped, the wickedness and fury of he and his officials returned, and hardening his heart again, he refused to let the people leave, just as YAHUSHA had told Moses.
Then YAHUSHA said to Moses, “Return to the Pharaoh and make your demands again for I have made him and his officials incredibly pig-headed and stubborn, so I can display My miraculous signs among them and so that you can tell your children and grandchildren about how I made a mockery of the most powerful nation on earth, and about the wonders I displayed among them, and you’ll know that I am Yahuah.”
PLAGUE OF LOCUSTS
So Moses and Aaron went to the Pharaoh and said, “Yahuah our Alahim says to you, O’ Pharaoh, haven’t you had enough bitch-slapp’in yet? How long will you refuse to surrender? LET MY PEOPLE GO!! THEY’RE MINE AND I WANT THEM BACK!! But if you refuse, WATCH OUT! For tomorrow I’ll bring a swarm of locusts on your country and they’ll cover the whole land so that you won’t be able to see the ground. They will devour what little is left of your crops after the hailstorm, including all the trees growing in the fields. They will overrun your palaces and the homes of your officials and all the houses in Egypt. Never in the history of Egypt have your ancestors seen a plague like this one!”
And with that, Moses turned and left the Pharaoh and his officials ran to him and appealed to him. “Mighty Pharaoh would you please just release the Hebrews and let them go so that this suffering will stop! Can’t you see that our whole country is in ruins?”
So Moses and Aaron were brought back to the Pharaoh. “Alright,” he told them, “Go and serve Yahuah your Alahim. But who exactly will be going with you?”
And Moses replied, “EVERYONE!! Young and old, sons and daughters, flocks and herds. We must all join together in celebrating a festival to Yahuah.”
And the Pharaoh said, “You’ll need Yahuah to protect you if you dare take all the children too! I can see through your devious, evil plans and you can forget it! No way! Never! Only the men can go and serve Yahuah, since that’s what you first requested.”
And he booted Moses and Aaron out of the palace. So YAHUSHA said to Moses, “Raise your hand over the land of Egypt to bring on the locusts. Let them cover the land and devour every plant that survived the hailstorm.”
So Moses raised his staff over Egypt, and YAHUSHA caused an east wind to blow over the land all that day and through the night. And when morning arrived, the east wind had brought all the species of locusts. And they swarmed over the whole land of Egypt, settling in dense swarms from one end of the country to the other. It was the worst locust plague in Egyptian history, and there has never been another one like it. And so many locusts covered the whole country that the land was darkened from them for they blocked out alot of the sunlight. They devoured every plant in the fields and all the fruit on the trees that had survived the hailstorm. Not a single leaf was left on the trees and plants throughout the land of Egypt.
The Pharaoh quickly summoned Moses and Aaron. “My wicked behavior is an offense to your Alahim Yahuah and against you. Please Forgive me, just this once, and plead with Yahuah your Alahim to take away this death from me.”
So Moses left the Pharaoh’s court. Meanwhile the Egyptians rejoiced at the locusts, because even though they had destroyed all the pstickuce of the fields, they caught them in abundance and salted them all up for their food. So YAHUSHA turned a mighty wind of the sea which took away all the locusts, even those that were salted, and thrust them into the Red Sea and not one locust remained within the boundaries of Egypt. But YAHUSHA hardened the Pharaoh’s heart again, so that he refused to release Yisharal.
PLAGUE OF DARKNESS
Then YAHUSHA said to Moses, “Lift your hand toward the sky and the land of Egypt will be covered with a darkness so thick you can feel it.”
So Moses lifted his hand to the sky, and a deep darkness covered the entire land of Egypt for three days and during this time the people couldn’t even see each other, and no one dared move. But there was sunlight as usual in Goshen, where the people of Yisharal lived. Finally, the Pharaoh called for Moses.
“FOR GOODNESS SAKE, Bugger off, I’m done with this MADNESS!! Go and serve your Alahim,” he said, “You may take your little ones with you, but leave all your flocks and herds here”.
“NO!!” Moses said, “DON’T YOU GET IT YET? We’re taking the animals for sacrifices to Yahuah our Alahim. All our livestock are going with us and not a hoof will be left behind".
And YAHUSHA hardened the Pharaoh’s heart once more, and he ‘saw red’ and took back his offer “Get the hell out of here you relentless bastard!” the Pharaoh screamed at Moses, “And don’t dare step foot in this palace again, for the day you see my face again will be your last!”
“O’ YA’damn skippy,” Moses replied. “I’ll won’t be seeing your face ever again O’ mighty Pharaoh!
SOMEBODY SUFFERING FROM A DARK, DEEP SUICIDAL DEPRESSION IS EXPERIENCING THE SAME THICK SPIRITUAL DARKNESS THAT COVERED EGYPT. A DARKNESS CAUSED BY A LACK OF YAHUSHA’S FAVOR. A DARKNESS CAUSED BY UNCLEAN SPIRITS & EVIL BEHAVIOUR. IT WASN’T JUST THAT THEY COULDN’T PHYSICALLY SEE EACH OTHER OR MAKE OUT THEIR SURROUNDINGS, THEY WERE COMPLETELY OVERWHELMED BY THIS DARK ATMOSPHERE OF IMPENDING DOOM FROM WHICH THERE WAS NO ESCAPE. BUT WHILE EGYPT WAS WALLOWING IN TERROR, YISHARAL WAS CELEBRATING.
DEATH OF THE FIRSTBORN
And YAHUSHA said to Moses, “I will strike that wretched Pharaoh and the land of Egypt with one more fatal plague and after that, the Pharaoh will let you leave this country. In fact, he will force you all to leave. Tell all the Yisharalite men and women to ask their Egyptian neighbors for articles of silver and gold.”
YAHUSHA HAD CAUSED THE EGYPTIANS TO LOOK FAVORABLY ON THE PEOPLE OF YISHARAL. AND MOSES WAS CONSIDERED A VERY GREAT MAN IN THE LAND OF EGYPT, RESPECTED BY THE PHARAOH’S OFFICIALS AND THE EGYPTIAN PEOPLE ALIKE.
And before Moses left the courts of the Pharaoh for the last time, he had announced, “Yahuah said that at midnight tonight He will pass through the midst of Egypt. And all the firstborn sons will die in every family, from the oldest son of the Pharaoh, who sits on his throne, to the oldest son of his lowliest servant girl who grinds the flour. Even the firstborn of all the livestock will die. Then a loud cry will rise throughout all the land of Egypt, a wailing sound like no one has ever heard before or will ever hear again. But among Yisharal it will be so peaceful that not even a dog will bark. Then you will know that Yahuah makes a distinction between Egypt and Yisharal. All the officials of Egypt will run to me and fall to the ground before me begging, ‘Please leave! Hurry! Take all your followers with you.’ Then O’ mighty Pharaoh, AND ONLY THEN will I go!”
And Moses had left the Pharaoh’s courts furious, but YAHUSHA had told Moses earlier that the Pharaoh would not listen and that He would do even more mighty miracles in the land of Egypt. So this was the plagues and the wonders Moses and Aaron performed right in the Pharaoh’s face, but YAHUSHA had made the Pharaoh’s heart rock-hard, and he wouldn’t let Yisharal leave the country.
