The Exodus: The Plagues, Part 2

This morning in Exodus we are going to take a look at the plagues that YHWH used to free His people from the Egyptians. I want to caution our thinking from the very start: the goal of the plagues was evangelism, not destruction. God’s purpose was not to show off or even prove Himself to others; He is not insecure about His role in this world. YHWH desires to rescue people from their captivity to sin, which brings death and eternal separation from Him. I Timothy 2:4 tells us that God desires all people to come to a saving knowledge of the truth.
