The plagues of Egypt are happening again. Yesterday, we looked at a few excerpts from Immanuel Velikovsky’s book “Worlds in Collision” as they correspond to the plagues of Egypt: water turning to blood, frogs, lice, flies, livestock pestilence, boils, hail, locusts, darkness, and killing of the firstborn. Please refer to =>

Exodus 9 speaks of the plague of hail/meteorites. “The Papyrus Ipuwer describes this consuming fire: ‘Gates, columns, and walls are consumed by fire. The sky is in confusion.’ The papyrus says that this fire almost ‘exterminated mankind.’ … in Psalms 105 it is referred to as ‘flaming fire.’” (Worlds in Collision, p. 72).

Velikovsky writes about the ninth plague – darkness: “The earth entered deeper into the tail of the onrushing comet and approached its body … followed by a disturbance in the rotation of the earth. Terrific hurricanes swept the earth because the change or reversal of the angular velocity of rotation and because of the sweeping gases, dust, and cinders of the comet. Numerous rabbinical sources describe the calamity of darkness: … An exceedingly strong wind endured seven days. All the time the land was shrouded in darkness. On the fourth, fifth, and sixth days [3 days], the darkness was so dense that they [the people of Egypt] could not stir from their place. The darkness was of such a nature that it could not be dispelled by artificial means. … Nothing could be discerned. … None was able to speak or to hear, nor could anyone venture to take food, but they lay themselves down” (p. 75). Josephus reports that the darkness was of such kind that “their eyes were blinded by it and their breath choked” (p. 75).

So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days. They did not see one another; nor did anyone rise from his place for three days. But all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings” (Exodus 10:22-23). Please allow me to emphasize that during the plague of darkness, ALL of God’s people had light in their residences.

“The Iranian book Anugita reveals that a threefold day and threefold night concluded a world age. … If the earth did not stop rotating but slowed down or was titled, there must have been a longitude where a prolonged day was followed by a prolonged night. … According to Bahman Yast, … in eastern Iran… the sun remained ten days visible in the sky. In China, during the reign of the Emperor Yahou, a great catastrophe brought a world age to a close. For ten days, the sun did not set” (p. 78).

Velikovsky turns to eyewitness Ipuwer for vital clues about the tenth plague. First, I would like to point out that Exodus 12:23 says that the LORD will not allow the Destroyer to come into His people’s houses when He sees the Blood of the Passover Lamb on the home’s doorframe. This is a good clue for our day. We must obey His instructions and come under the protecting presence of the Blood of the Lamb. Ipuwer witnessed and survived a worldwide earthquake, as Isaiah 24:20 puts it: “The earth shall reel to and fro like a drunkard, And shall totter like a hut; Its transgression shall be heavy upon it, And it will fall, and not rise again.”

Papyrus Ipuwer 2:11; 3:13 records “The towns are destroyed. Upper Egypt has become waste. … All is ruin. … The residence is overturned in a minute” (p. 78-79). The Passover Haggadah says: “The first-born of the Egyptians didst Thou crush at midnight” (p. 79). Refer to Exodus 12:29. Exodus 12:27 describes the tenth plague of Egypt as the angel of the LORD passing over the houses of the children of Israel with their holy lamb blood-soaked doorways while He smote the Egyptians to deliver His peoples’ households. When this reverential fear moment happened, God’s people responded: “So the people bowed their heads and worshiped” (Exodus 12:27).

Velikovsky reconstructs in his book Ages in Chaos that “first-born” is bkhor in the tenth plague, which is probably a corruption of the word “chosen” bchor. Ipuwer writes: “Forsooth: The children of princes are dashed against the walls … the children of princes are cast out in the streets … the prison is ruined.” (p. 79) “And it came to pass at midnight that the Lord struck all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh who sat on his throne to the firstborn of the captive who was in the dungeon, and all the firstborn of livestock” (Exodus 12:29). “Also, St. Jerome wrote an epistle that in the night in which Exodus took place, all the temples of Egypt were destroyed either by an earthshock or by the thunderbolt” (p. 80).

God’s people were brought out of Egypt by something that looked like a stretched arm: “by a stretched arm and by great terrors” (Deuteronomy 4:34). In Deuteronomy 26:8, it says “with a mighty hand, and with an outstretched arm, and with great terribleness, and with signs, and with wonders.”

Soon, we will explore the hurricane that brought an end to the Middle Kingdom of Egypt. In the language of Manetho: The blast of heavenly displeasure swept through every corner of the world (p. 85).

Never ever forget that those who feared His Name, loved the LORD God to the best of their ability, and obeyed His voice were safe in the midst of worldwide devastation either in little clay homes or in their little flimsy tents. The Israelites appeared to be totally exposed to the elements in the wilderness; and yet, they were perfectly protected in the clouds of His Presence.

Give em heaven!!!
