God’s Instructions to Moses and Aaron – (Exodus 7:1-13) …


7 So the Lord said to Moses: “See, I have made you as God to Pharaoh, and Aaron your brother shall be your prophet. 2 You shall speak all that I command you. And Aaron your brother shall tell Pharaoh to send the children of Israel out of his land. 3 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart and multiply My signs and My wonders in the land of Egypt. 4 But Pharaoh will not heed you, so that I may lay My hand on Egypt and bring My [a]armies and My people, the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments. 5 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the Lord, when I stretch out My hand on Egypt and bring out the children of Israel from among them.”

6 Then Moses and Aaron did so; just as the Lord commanded them, so they did. 7 And Moses was eighty years old and Aaron eighty-three years old when they spoke to Pharaoh. 8 Then the Lord spoke to Moses and Aaron, saying, 9 “When Pharaoh speaks to you, saying, ‘Show a miracle for yourselves,’ then you shall say to Aaron, ‘Take your rod and cast it before Pharaoh, and let it become a serpent.’” 10 So Moses and Aaron went into Pharaoh, and they did so, just as the Lord commanded. And Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent.

11 But Pharaoh also called the wise men and the [b]sorcerers; so the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their [c]enchantments. 12 For every man threw down his rod, and they became serpents. But Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. 13 And Pharaoh’s heart grew hard, and he did not heed them, as the Lord had said.

The Plague of Water Turned to Blood – (Exodus 7:14-25) …


14 So the Lord said to Moses: “Pharaoh’s heart is hard; he refuses to let the people go. 15 Go to Pharaoh in the morning, when he goes out to the water, and you shall stand by the river’s bank to meet him; and the rod which was turned to a serpent you shall take in your hand. 16 And you shall say to him, ‘The Lord God of the Hebrews has sent me to you, saying, “Let My people go, that they may [d]serve Me in the wilderness”; but indeed, until now you would not hear! 17 Thus says the Lord: “By this you shall know that I am the Lord. Behold, I will strike the waters which are in the river with the rod that is in my hand, and they shall be turned to blood. 18 And the fish that are in the river shall die, the river shall stink, and the Egyptians will loathe[e] to drink the water of the river.” ’ ”

19 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, “Say to Aaron, ‘Take your rod and stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt, over their streams, over their rivers, over their ponds, and over all their pools of water, that they may become blood. And there shall be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in buckets of wood and pitchers of stone.’” 20 And Moses and Aaron did so, just as the Lord commanded. So, he lifted up the rod and struck the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh and in the sight of his servants. And all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. 21 The fish that were in the river died, the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink the water of the river. So, there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.

22 Then the magicians of Egypt did so with their [f]enchantments; and Pharaoh’s heart grew hard, and he did not heed them, as the Lord had said. 23 And Pharaoh turned and went into his house. Neither was his heart moved by this. 24 So all the Egyptians dug all around the river for water to drink, because they could not drink the water of the river. 25 And seven days passed after the Lord had struck the river.



NOTES Exodus 7 – (vv. 1, 3, 5, 9, 14, 22, 23) …


7:1 The Lord made Moses a god to Pharaoh, but it is one thing to be made a god and another to be God – (HilryP) … The Scripture uses the name god in three ways: (1): gods in name only, as are Moses and the saints; (2): false gods, are the demons and idols; and (3) the true God, as is the Father – (AmbM) … Moses was god in name only, but not in nature … But the Son is True God of True God – (Nicene Creed), because He is God both in name and in nature … For before all time and ages, He is Begotten from God to be God … he is Begotten, not made – (Nicene Creed) …


7:3, 14, 22: See my Notes for (Exodus 4:21): 4:21: IT IS customary for Holy Scripture to call God’s permission His action – (JohnDm) … Therefore, when the Lord said to Moses, I WILL HARDEN HIS HEART, this hardness was by way of divine permission … For Pharaoh hardened his own heart through his free choice – free will …

CLOSING …


COLOSSIANS 3:15:


And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body: and be thankful.


“Give thanks to the Lord for all we have even in hard times … Letting the peace of God rule in our hearts in rewarding in so many ways … The Pharaoh had every opportunity to change his ways and heart but chose full rejection, I wonder why they saw the wonders but chose complete darkness instead of eternal light and life … Today I’m blessed and have been blessed; we all need to focus more on the good rather than the negative the darkness wants us

to focus on … Be thankful to the Lord for all we have and love another with complete love be compassionate and merciful, lastly shun evil and do good …”
