By Don Ruhl

Egypt put their faith in their gods, but even with many gods, they could not compete with the one true and living God of the children of Israel,

“For I will pass through the land of Egypt on that night, and will strike all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, both man and beast; and against all the gods of Egypt I will execute judgment: I am the LORD” (Exodus 12.12).

The powerful nation of Egypt almost experienced annihilation at the hands of Yahweh God. Their gods could do nothing against the God of the Bible, because they were not gods, but manmade images that men worshiped, believing that they control their nation’s prosperity. Egypt learned the hard way that only Jehovah God is true.
