God’s wonderful plan for Israel was to bring them out of the affliction of Egypt into a land flowing with abundance of goodness, and
the path was to be loosed from their oppressor, Egypt, in order to go and worship God.
Judgment after judgment hit Egypt, as Pharoah hardened his heart and refused to let Israel go worship. The plagues proved God’s supremacy over all that Egypt worshiped and adored. Instead of humbling Pharoah’s heart, the plagues only served to cause Pharaoh to dig in his heels in obstinacy even more. Finally, it seemed he was willing to compromise, but his compromise was simply a deceptive trick of Satan himself, to lure Israel into deeper bondage and danger.
Then Pharaoh called for Moses and said, “Go, worship the Lord! Even your women and children may go with you, but your flocks and herds must stay behind.” But Moses said, “You must allow us to take our animals for the sacrifices and burnt offerings we have to make to the Lord our God. All our livestock must go with us. Not one animal must be left behind. We’ll have to use some of them for worshiping the Lord our God, and we won’t know what we’ll need until we get there.”
