Various strokes of affliction:.Easton's Bible Dictionary.describes: "A "stroke" of affliction or disease. Sent as a divine chastisement:.Numbers 11:33; 14:37; 16:46-49; 2Samuel 24:21. Painful afflictions or diseases.(Leviticus 13:3,5,30; 1Kings 8:37-40), or severe calamity.(Mark 5:29; Luke 7:21), or the judgment of God, so called:.Exodus 9:14.

Plagues of Egypt.were ten in number and came about as a result of ancient Pharaoh's stubbornness and God using that stubbornness to show who was really in control.

Egypt is an antitype of the ordinary consciousness world, a world of men and women basically devoid of the knowledge of the true Creator-God.

The Egyptian captivity of some 400 years for the ancient Israelites was long before predicted to Abraham:.Genesis 15:13,14.

Pharaoh, king of Egypt during the last part of the 400 year captivity was Ramses II, was reluctant to let all his free slave labor go from Egypt. The enslaved Israelites had been there four hundred thirty years and were under great pressure from Egyptian taskmasters to produce as they worked in the hot Sun day after day:.Exodus 1:11; Jeremiah 11:4. Pharaoh was not about to willingly take action upon what Moses was telling him about letting the Israelites go free.(Exodus 5:1,2), but he should have. He just didn't listen to believe and because of that paid a big price for being that way. He lost his son, see #10 plague below.

First Egypt experienced the ten plagues below. Then Pharaoh.(which pharaoh was this? as there were many pharaohs).agreed to let them go, but changed his mind and pursued them to kill them. This is when Creator-God opened up the sea so that the Israelites could walk on dry land on their exodus out of the land of Egypt and away from slavery to the Egyptians.

Pharoah's chariots were hot in pursuit and charged onto the dry sea bed as they headed after the Israelites, but the water that was held away from the sea bed by God began to collapse upon the Egyptians in order to protect the Israelities:.Exodus 14:21-30.

Evidence has been found.(a PowerPoint presentation or see the pictures)

The plagues:

1) The river Nile was turned into blood and the fish died and the river stank, so that the Egyptians loathed to drink of the river:.Exodus 7:14-25.

2) The plague of frogs:.Exodus 8:1-15.

3) The plague of lice.(Hebrew is 'kinnim', properly, gnats or mosquitoes; compare (Psalms 78:45; 105:31), "out of the dust of the land":.Exodus 8:16-19.

4) The plague of flies:.Exodus 8:21-24.

5) The murrain.(Exodus 9:1-7).or epidemic pestilence which killed off vast numbers of cattle in the field. Warning was given of its coming. See 'God Always Warns'.

6) The sixth plague, of "boils and blains," like the third, was sent without warning:.Exodus 9:8-12. It is called.(Deuteronomy 28:27)."the botch of Egypt," Authorized Version; but in Revised Version, "the boil of Egypt." "The magicians could not stand before Moses" because of it.

7) The plague of hail, with fire and thunder:.Exodus 9:13-33. Warning was given of its coming..(compare Psalms 18:13; 105:32,33).

8) The plague of locusts, which covered the whole face of the Earth, so that the land was darkened with them:.Exodus 10:12-15. The Hebrew name of this insect, 'arbeh', points to the 'multitudinous' character of this visitation. They were everywhere. Warning was given also, before this plague came.

9) After a short interval the plague of darkness came after that of the locusts and it came without any special warning.(the Egyptians received warning already, no need for anymore):.Exodus 10:21-29. The darkness covered "all the land of Egypt" to such an extent that "they saw not one another." It did not, however, extend to the land of Goshen.

10) The last and most fearful of these plagues was the death of the firstborn of man and of beast:.Exodus 11:4,5; 12:29,30. The exact time of the visitation was announced, "about midnight", which would add to the horror of the infliction. Its extent also is specified, from the first-born of the king to the first-born of the humblest slave and all the first born of beasts. But from this plague the Hebrews were completely exempted. The Lord "put a difference" between them and the Egyptians. See 'Passover' in Easton's Bible Dictionary.

-John 19:11: It was all part of the plan of God that the Jews should first purpose his death and the Gentiles carry that purpose into effect:.1Corinthians 1:29. In this influencing of minds to this end, the devil was used.

-Renaissance/Restoration: The humanistic revival of classical art, architecture, literature, and learning that originated in Italy in the 14th century and later spread throughout Europe. The period of this revival, roughly the 14th through the 16th century, marking the transition from medieval to modern times.

-Leonardo da Vinci, 1452-1519, Italian artist and architect, painter, engineer, musician, and scientist. The most versatile genius of the Renaissance, Leonardo filled notebooks with engineering and scientific observations that were in some cases centuries ahead of their time. As a painter, Leonardo is best known for.The Last Supper.(c.1495) and.Mona Lisa.(c. 1503). Some of his quotes.
