The Exodus had a purpose toward Egypt. It plainl showed the residents to egypt that Jehovah the God of Moses was greater than all their gods. They worshipped the god of the Nile, the Sun God, the various insects and  other creatures, and the 1st born especially of the Pharoh.
So as each plague took place  it was teaching the people of Egypt , slaves and full citizens... your gods do not deserve to be worshipped. The one and only god of Moses whose name is Jehovah is the most high of all gods, and he alone is who you should worship.

When Pharoh decided to stike at the sons of Israel by ordering the 1st born to be killed by his soldiers, the  same thing happened to his  1st born. The Pharohs son died when the angel of death struck all of Egypt except those that put the blood of the lamb on their doorposts.


What did the blood of the lamb picture prophetically?

Older throughout mankinds history why has faithful worshipers of Jehovah always been in the minority???  There has never ever been a time recorded after Adam and Eve where most humans , even wher there were far fewer , worshiped faithfully. WHY?

In the vindication of the truth

It takes effort.

Job was tested  to the utmost. Few humans worshipped Jehovah even then but  we too are being tested as to our integrety. The proven integrety  will be  very useful when we welcome back the dead and  teach them about Jehovah.


When we realize how many left Egypt and  while  going to the promised land they needed to be taught. Many had always worshipped false gods, and  their gods did not require obedience as does Jehovah. They only hoped their gods would bless them. Obedience to Jehovah is the best way of live and  is a reward even during the  influence of the world, it helps keep us safe .


Satan makes his worldly ways seem plausible. When in control of the governments he is required by God, Jehovah who is the most high, to furnigh a system of law and order, and so to keep law and order Jesus also told us to obey the supreior authorites . Law and order keeps  rebellions from ruining the earth. But since 1914 Satan is very angry  because he knows his time is shortened . Never should we blame Jehovah for the result of those nations that  are u nder the infuence of Satan. That influence  of Satan began brain washing us from childhood onward. It is hard to cleanse that influence out of  us. That is where the bible helps us so very much by illustrating  the good and the bad and showing the propheceis of this time preiod.


It takes effort to really know Jehovahs ways by means of the bible. Noah took a lot of effort  to build the ark  "Just so" and to preach at the same time.
