Exodus 11:5-6 KJV, “And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die, from the first born of Pharaoh that sitteth upon his throne, even unto the firstborn of the maidservant that is behind the mill; and all the firstborn of beasts. And there shall be a great cry throughout all the land of Egypt, such as there was none like it, nor shall be like it any more.”
Ellen G. White, The Spirit of Prophecy The Great Controversy Between Christ and His Angels and Satan and His Angels, Vol 1, 1870, Ch 17, P 200, Steam Press, Battle Creek, MI: writing about the passover: “That when the destroying angel went forth in the night to slay the first-born of man, and the first-born of beast, he passed over their houses, and not one of the Hebrews that had the token of blood upon their door-posts was slain. And the people bowed their heads and worshiped, grateful for this remarkable memorial given to preserve to their children the remembrance of God’s care for his people. There were quite a number of the Egyptians who were led to acknowledge, by the manifestations of the signs and wonders shown in Egypt, that the God of the Hebrews was the only true God. They entreated to be permitted to come to the houses of the Israelites with their families upon that fearful night when the angel of God should slay the first-born of the Egyptians. They were convinced that their gods whom they had worshiped were without knowledge, and had no power to save or to destroy.”
There were Egyptians whose first born sons were spared because they acknowledge the Only True God and obeyed the instructions to go and be in the house tokened with the blood of the lamb. And after the 9th plague swept Egypt and the final warning for the 10 plague did they move and join in with the obedient house.
Romans 15:4 KJV, “For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope.”
We are called to trust and obey God the Father. And in this time of danger we are instructed to put on the righteousness of His Son, Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, by faith. The signs and wonders are all around us. There will be “Egyptians” who will acknowledge the truth of Exodus 20:3 and John 17:3. Let us open our “houses” for them. But first let us warn and teach them. Let’s share the light. As God preserved us let us remember what He had done and worship Him today.
A Blessed Sabbath to you. We will hear a testimony today during our Sabbath service at 11am US EST via Zoom ID: 916 891 5581 PW: TrueGod.
Sincerely in the Blessed Hope.
