What Nine Plagues Could not Do

Israel had been under tyrant oppression God sent Moses to redeem them from suppression He promised to manifest His sign and wonder And extend His Finger of Power over Nut, the god of thunder Nile was like a sea of blood on the first day of the plague The magicians were dumbfounded and vague Nile hitherto served as Egypt National cake Became ravaged as millions of creatures died in the lake On day two, God brought frogs from Nile They died and stink along the foe’s mile Thus, Jeshurun judged Heqet of earth The frog goddess of birth On the third day God administered judgment on Zet The ‘mighty’ and the dreadful, he was the god of the dessert Magicians marveled at the miracle of Moses’ rod And declared to Pharaoh, “This is the Finger of God” On the fifth day God judged the goddess Hathor She was the spirit of cattle, a violent author He slays her cattle and plagued them with boil Amidst it all Pharaoh’s heart was harden like a golf ball On the seventh day, God plagued Egypt with Hail The sky goddess Nut was attacked and jail In all these Israel was not affected He was miraculously covered and protected On the ninth day Egypt was clothed in a cloak of darkness Nevertheless Pharaoh’s heart was still heartless But the home of the righteous was as a nimbus of radiant light As the glory of the Lord has risen upon their plight God judged Isis the ‘Protector’ as the first fruits were killed In this plague was the scripture fulfilled They overcame him (Isis) by the blood of the lamb And by the steadfast confession of faith in ‘I AM” Satan is a destroyer and a ‘blackmailer’ But Christ is our redeemer and our healer What the nine plagues couldn’t do The blood of the Lamb gave a clue By faith he (Moses) kept the Passover and the sprinkling of the blood, lest he who destroyed the firstborn should touch them. Hebrew 11:28
