Exodus 8 – Plague 2 The Frogs

And the LORD spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me. And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs: Exodus 8:1-2

The second plague has now come upon Egypt by the power of God. At first glance it appears this plague seems unintentional, like just an infestation of a rodent. However their is deeper meaning and significance to this plague. As stated before , every plague was a specific challenge to the false deities of Egypt

Frogs were actually considered sacred in Egypt during this time. It was actually a crime to kill them, much like the Hindus with cows. So imagine the Egyptians response when their sacred reptile, was literally covering their land, their houses, their rooms, everywhere they went their were frogs. The uncleanliness of the frog contaminated all their food and living spaces

And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs: And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy servants. And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt. Exodus 8:3-5

Notice God gave Pharaoh a chance to repent, however he didnt and the plague of frogs would fill the land of Egypt. Again God allowed Moses the ability to make this miracle happen , to prove Gods power and authority over all the false Egyptian gods

And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt. And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt. Exodus 8:6-7

Notice God allowed the Egyptians magicians to summon frogs also. Why would He do this? Perhaps to test the hearts of the Egyptians, what are their true intentions? Just like people today, most just seek whatever benefits them today, not the truth

Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Intreat the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the LORD. And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only? Exodus 8:8-9

Has Pharaoh now had a change of heart? Has Pharaoh truly repented to the true Living God? He has told Moses he would let the Israelites Go if God removes this plague from Egypt. Time will tell if Pharaoh is being truthful or trying to deceive God
