THE TEN PLAGUES - Plague #6

Hello there. Welcome to Entrepreneurial Goddess and my third Bible series entitled "The Ten Plagues".

Let's recap: Jehovah God has caused the first three plagues to affect both the Israelites and the Egyptians. The fourth and fifth plagues only hurt the Egyptians. Several Egyptian gods and goddesses have been totally disgraced. Still Pharaoh continues to keep God's people under the heavy burden of slavery.

Plague #6 (Exodus 9:8-11) - plague of boils.
Moses and Aaron took some ashes and threw them into the air. This caused festering sores on the people and the animals. Even the magic-practicing priests couldn't escape the boils!
  The irony is that this sixth plague brought disgrace to Isis and Ptah, gods and goddesses regarded as possessing healing abilities! Even the god Thoth was said to have known "all the magic formulas necessary to heal the sick." And the god Amon-Ra was said to be a physician who "dissolved evils and dispelled ailments." [All basically just a bunch of quacks!] A clear picture is emerging here, one you should pay attention to - so far none of the Egyptian deities have been able to make a reply to Jehovah God's power! Arrogant Pharaoh obviously is not listening. He still refuses to release God's people. Do you think Pharaoh will say "enough is enough" and give in? Find out with Plague #7!
