Exodus 1-14

Selected Lectio Reading:
Exodus 1-14


In Exodus, Chapter 7, the First Plague of water turning into blood is performed. God made the water blood so that the Egyptians couldn't drink the water or eat of the dead fish. However, the victory didn't last long. The pharaoh had magicians who could recreate what God had done. "But the magicians of Egypt did the same by their secret arts..." (Exodus 7:22) The only way that someone could recreate the power of God was if they had some sort of power themselves. It is here that demons are introduced. Technically they are not called demons, but instead magicians. However, there is no man or woman who has such power against God. These demons are relentless when it comes to trying to show pharaoh that God is myth. They come back again and again after every plague and do their best to recreate the miracles. Yet after all the demons did to prove that God was not real, they gave up their fa├žade and told pharaoh that God was truly behind this.


I am thankful for kind people in the world who understand the difficulties of homework combined with daily life.

Oratio/Prayer Intention:
