Artist’s 1728 portrayal of Israelite brick-making


This is the second of a multi-part sermon series on the Book of Exodus. In this sermon, Dr. Thiel begins with the fifth chapter and covers all of the verses through the end of the seventh chapter. He discusses lessons to be learned from actions of Moses, the Israelites, and the Egyptians. Related New Testament passages are also cited. He explains probably why the rod of Aaron was turned into a serpent and devoured those of Pharaoh's magicians. He mentions that Pharaoh wanted people to consider that Moses was a false prophet, and that 'fake news' existed even back then. Dr. Thiel goes over the plague of the Nile becoming blood and explains why this would be significant to the Egyptians. He also explains why items like the USA dollar cannot be relied upon. He also explains how the Book of Revelation has similar, but larger, plagues of waters turning to blood. Dr. Thiel explains some of why Christians need to change and not be complacent.
