  1. Here's food for thought, were there Egyptians who are nice for the Israelites got their elder child killed because they haven't use the Passover lamb method?
    Basically I am asking if there were people that Were nice that got dealt with the wrath of god because they aren't aligned with Israelites.

  2. Pray for God to awaken my heart to Him. I am a young missionary and I want desperately to love and give all for Him. Pray that I will be emotionally and intellectually staggered by Christ and His supremacy.

  3. Overall good stuff here, your artwork and explanation skills are truly one of a kind. However one problem, in the story of Moses and the plagues, the Pharaoh was not hardening his own heart, that was the work of God. You can see this in Exodus 4:21 Where god clearly states: “But I will harden his heart so he will refuse to let the people go.” This means that God had made the Pharaoh stubborn for some reason. Why? I don’t know, any thoughts?

  4. The true Egyptians are a black African people. Therefore, for Moses to hide in the midst of pharaoh and his palaces, Moses would have to look like the Egyptians. It remains the Israelites are a black people.

  5. Love the series, but two issues in this video that provide a great opportunity to learn. First, the 1st Commandment of the Decalogue contains both the prohibition to worship other gods and the prohibition against idol-crafting and the worship of those idols. They are essentially the same, since the idols represented other gods. The proper way to divide up the items of the Decalogue is to split the prohibition of covetousness into the coveting of property and the coveting of companionship. Wives are not belongings, and so it makes little sense to treat them that way by combining the 9th and 10th Commandments.

    Second — and this requires more nuanced study, as it is a major misconception — is that the Israelites were not in Egypt for 400 years. To teach this skews radically and erroneously the biblical timeline and has major theological implications. See
    "Were the Pyramids Built Before the Flood? (Masoretic Text vs. Original Hebrew)" by NathanH83 here on YouTube.

    Father: "How do you deal with issues that you have been accustomed to your whole life, whether it’s sin, compromise, fears, or the general nature of your old man? The truth is you cannot unless you rid yourself of the gods that you place before Me, for this is the main hindrance and this is the problem the children of Israel faced in the wilderness. They had settled in a land full of idols and false gods for hundreds of years and to turn from this was a very difficult thing to do. In the same way, it is a difficult thing to change the state of your heart after living in the nature of the old man for so long. But it is not impossible you see. A heart that is willing to do what the first commandment states and have NO OTHER GODS BEFORE ME, to him will have no issue denying other gods to put Me first.

    But you must put this into context. To put Me first is not just a general attitude of believing in Me and saying with your mouth that you serve Me. Do you put Me first above your life? Your finances? Your comforts? Your opinions? Your heart’s desires? Your routines and the way you like to do things? Do you stop to consider what My opinion is? What My desire is? What My way is? Many say they live for Me but My definition of having no other gods before Me is not so the same. First means first above all, and once this is settled in your heart, then the issues in your life that need rectifying can be dealt with. The Israelites faced many issues because despite what I did for them, Egypt was still alive in their heart. If you desire to walk in the new, Egypt needs to die completely in your heart until only I become the one true God of your life, for this is the first commandment."

  8. Can someone help me understand this verse? It’s from Exodus Chapter 4.

    24 At a lodging place on the way, the Lord met Moses[b] and was about to kill him. 25 But Zipporah took a flint knife, cut off her son’s foreskin and touched Moses’ feet with it.[c] “Surely you are a bridegroom of blood to me,” she said. 26 So the Lord let him alone. (At that time she said “bridegroom of blood,” referring to circumcision.)

    Thanks in advance

  9. I'm an atheist currently reading the Bible to try and understand it. I have a question about Exodus, although it could also apply to other parts of the Bible – and I apologize if it sounds like one of those smart-ass militant atheist questions, it's not intended to be, I'm genuinely confused and interested in the answer: if God can do anything – literally anything – why doesn't he just punish Pharoah himself for what he did to the Israelites? Why does he take it out on every first born Egyptian boy? I understand it was a response to the Egyptians doing the same thing to the Israelites, but if God can truly do anything wouldn't it be easy for him to specifically punish only those who were actually responsible for the original misdeed? I understand that God in the Old Testament is much harsher than in the New Testament, but then doesn't that contradict the idea of him being eternally perfect?

    Like I say I'm not trying to be a smart-ass I have a lot of respect for The Bible and Christians – part of the reason I'm asking is I want something to tell the smart-ass militant atheists when they ask this inevitable question.

  10. Oh people this life is temporary
    And Afterlife is permanent in paradise All fun with no sadness whatsoever
    Oh people obey Allah the Only God who Created you read Quran and Follow the last Messenger Muhammed peace be upon him So you succeed and be happy in life and Enter Paradise After resurrection


  12. These two men skipped over all the slavery laws in Exodus. Read your bible people.
    Exodus 21:20&21
    If he strikes his male or female slave with a rod and he dies at his hand, he shall be punished. If, however, he survives a day or two, no vengeance shall me taken: for he is his property.

  13. You are amazing teachers! in my 19 years I never found interest in learning about the bible, I used to think it was stupid. I never would have realized how many stories there are and how they all correlate together. thank you.
