Too Many Snakes

05 Aug
English: Moses and Aaron Appear before Pharaoh...

English: Moses and Aaron Appear before Pharaoh (Ex. 6:26-30, 7:1-10) Русский: Моисей и Аарон перед фараоном (Исх. 6:26-30, 7:1-10) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

So person, a whole week ago Pharaoh was being even meaner to the Israelites, and they were mad at Moses and Moses was mad at God. So is God finally going to give Pharaoh what for, or not?

God told Moses what? That He would redeem Israel with an outstretched arm and mighty acts of judgment? Okay God, bring it on. Give that mean old Pharaoh what for!

I’m listening to the story, person. Can’t I help cheer God on?

God told Moses to tell the Israelites that He would take them out of Egypt and bring them to the land that He had promised to their fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. But the Israelites wouldn’t listen to Moses because of their discouragement and cruel bondage.

Then God told Moses to tell Pharaoh to let the Israelites go. But Moses said if the Israelites wouldn’t listen to him then why would Pharaoh listen.

Why doesn’t God just come down and give Pharaoh what for?

I’m listening person, but I really want to see God zap Pharaoh.

Well God convinced Moses and his brother Aaron to go talk to Pharaoh, and said to them that when Pharaoh tells them to perform a miracle that Aaron should throw his staff down and it will become a snake.

Was that like the snake that was in our driveway awhile back?

I’m listening.

Aaron threw his staff down and it became a snake, but the Egyptian magicians turned their staffs into snakes too.

Yikes, that’s a lot of snakes.

What? Aaron’s snake swallowed up all the other snakes? So there was only one snake?

So did Pharaoh let the Israelites go?

What! He didn’t? His heart was hard and he wouldn’t listen? That’s not fair.

I don’t think Pharaoh is very scared of snakes. So when is God really going to give Pharaoh what for? He sure is taking His time.

I bet Pharaoh would be scared of my snake. Can we go outside now? I need to see if that snake came back to our driveway so I can send it over to Pharaoh.

    Although they are fan creatures to read stories about or see on tv, they are not such a nice encounter …well at least not all of them. Some you really must avoid Bongo. As always I love your excitement when listening to these stories!

      Thanks Marina. My person says we have some good snakes around here that eat pesky things, but there are also some that I should stay away from.

    Oh, sweet Bongo we think that is too many snakes too. We are not fond of snakes although we have seen some really pretty ones. We love the way you get all excited about these great stories. We really enjoy them too. Hugs and nose kisses

      Thanks Chancy and Mumsy. My person says there won’t be any more snakes in these stories – for awhile, but there will be all kinds of other creatures. I wonder what’s coming next. Hugs and nose kisses back to you.

    Hmmmm….now I wonder why God turned Aaron’s staff into a snake??? I mean it could have been a frog, or a lizard if God had wanted Aaron to show a miracle in front of Pharao…but why he chose a snake for the miracle? Because a snake was considered as a scary creature???? that might have scared Pharao? Woof?

      Kevin, that’s a good question. Maybe because Aaron’s staff was shaped kind of like a snake. My person says frogs are coming soon though. We don’t have any frogs around here – except the pet frog. I wonder if they’re good to chase.

    I do like snakes but usually only behind glass where I know they can’t slither by me 😉

      Misty Shores, my person says she knows what the poisonous snakes around here look like and as long as she doesn’t see them around she doesn’t mind the other ones. I wonder if Aaron’s snake was poisonous.

    I don’t like snakes, they’re acting to unexpected, but maybe if I had a staff..

      Angels Whisper, as long as that staff didn’t turn into a snake.

      Collies, my person says the story keeps getting more exciting, but I’m with Ginger. God should just nuke Pharaoh.
