The Final Plague

I’ve been waiting and waiting for God to give Pharaoh what for in these stories. God keeps sending plagues and Pharaoh just won’t give in.

So what’s God going to do to Pharaoh now? Is Pharaoh finally going to say he’s had enough?

I’m listening person, but I’m still waiting for mean old Pharaoh to get the what for he deserves.

So in the last story Pharaoh told Moses to get out of his sight, and not to appear before him again or Moses would die.

Moses said fine, but God told Moses to warn Pharaoh what would happen if he didn’t let the Israelites go to worship Him.

What’s going to happen, person?

I am listening.

About midnight God would go through the land and every firstborn son in Egypt would die – and all the firstborn cattle too.

Come on person. The animals too?

But – God told Moses to tell the Israelites to have each household slaughter a lamb for dinner, and then take some of the blood and put it on the sides and the tops of the doorframes. Wherever God saw the blood on the doorframes He would pass over that house and no destructive plague would touch that household.

Pharaoh was so upset after what happened that he called Moses in the middle of the night and told him and the Israelites to leave.

Yay! Pharaoh finally had enough!

There’s more? Okay, I’m listening.

The Egyptians urged the Israelites to get out of the country fast because they were afraid they would all die. But God had told the Israelites to ask the Egyptians for silver, gold, and clothing before they left – and the Egyptians gave them all kinds of stuff.

Did they give them any dog treats?

What? The Israelites had to leave so fast that they couldn’t put any yeast in their bread dough, so they had to eat flat bread.

I bet that would be good. It sounds kind of like dog treats to me.

So they finally got away from mean old Pharaoh. Woo woo!

What do you mean they haven’t seen the last of Pharaoh yet?

When he shows up maybe they can throw some dog treats at him.

    I know that God had a good reason for the plagues, and He felt justified in doing them …but this is 2012 and we have a plague of flies for months on end…..I always thought that I was a good person, said my prayers and knew my place can anyone tell me…you I mean Bongo…why me?

      Patreciau, I don’t know why those flies are picking on you. My person says she’ll pray that they go away and leave you alone, but it that doesn’t work I’ll come over and give them a lickin’.

        Patreciau, I’ll make sure to give that mean old Pharaoh what for if he tries anything else.

    That does sound like dog treats! Pharaoh didn’t know what he was missing any way he sliced it.

    • Bongo

      FleaByte, I guess it took a lot for Pharaoh to figure out that God means what He says. And if Pharaoh doesn’t want those dog treats I’ll take them.

    Thank you sweet Bongo for sharing another good story with us. We don’t know if we would like flat bread but those dog treats would be good. Hugs and nose kisses

      Glad you enjoyed the story Chancy and Mumsy. And I’m sure glad all those Israelites brought treats for their dogs.

    At least this story has a good end and it’s so sweet of you, Bongo, to give the Pharaoh some dog treats.. 😀

      Angels Whisper, I guess Pharaoh has had enough trouble. I could do something nice for him.

    We all give a great BIG CHEER!!! Take that you nasty old Pharoah! YAY!! We would like to point out that in this story that the animals suffered the same fate as the Egyptians and that the Lamb’s were used to protect the Jewish ppl. Interesting how the animals are tied to the fate of their ppl isnt it…… Ginger says they still should nuke Pharoah and she has a bomb she will gladly sell them… ahem…

    • Bongo

      August 28, 2012 at 6:51 pm

      Chuck and Collies, I guess we’d better take care of our people so they’ll take care of us. But I do like Ginger’s idea of nuking Pharaoh.

    Another gripping tale! I hope the next installment of the Israelites escape from the Egyptians is not a washout 🙂

      Thanks Bassa. If it is, those dog treats might get a little soggy.
