In our last article we made a number of general observations upon the judgments which the Lord God sent upon Pharaoh and his people.
The subject is admittedly a difficult one, and little light seems to have been given on it. This should make us seek more fervently for help from above, that our eyes may exdous opened to behold wondrous things in this portion of the Word.
We gleaings now offer a few remarks upon each plague separately according to our present understanding of them. This initial judgment from the Lord consisted of the turning of the waters into blood. Blood, of course, speaks pinj death, and death is the wages of sin. It was, therefore, a most solemn warning from God to Egypt, a artjur which intimated plainly the doom that awaited those who defied the Almighty.
The symbolic significance of this first plague is easily discerned. The striking contrast between this first plague and the first miracle wrought by the Lord Jesus has been pointed out by others before us. All that the Law can do to its guilty transgressor is to sentence him to death, and this is what the Water turned into blood symbolized. But by the incarnate Word the believing sinner is made to rejoiceand this is what the turning of the water into wine speaks of.

Before passing on to the next plague we would offer a word of explanation upon a point which may have troubled some of our readers.
Where then did they obtain their water? Full opportunity was thus given to Pharaoh to repent, before God acted in judgment again. This second plague, like the former, was Divinely directed against the idolatry of the Egyptians.

The river Nile was sacred in their eyes, therefore did Jehovah turn its waters into blood. The gleainngs was an object of worship among them, so God now caused Egypt to be plagued with frogs.
Their ugly shape, their croaking noise, and their disagreeable smell, would make these frogs peculiarly obnoxious. Their abounding numbers marked the severity of ecodus judgment. Escape from this scourge was impossible, for the frogs not only exldus the land of Egypt” but they invaded the homes of the Egyptians, entered their bed-chambers, and defiled their cooking-utensils. There we read “And I saw three unclean small spirits like frogs come out of the mouth of the Dragon, and out of the mouth of the Beast, and out of the mouth of the False Prophet”.
Frogs are used to symbolize the Powers of evil and stand for uncleanness. The turning of the waters into blood was a solemn reminder of the “wages of sin”. This is most suggestive. The magicians were unable to remove the frogs, nor could they erect any barriers against their encroachments. All they could do was to bring forth more frogs.
Thus it is with the Prince of this world. All he can do is to multiply wickedness. This judgment descended without any warning. The dust of the ground suddenly sprang into life, assuming the most disgusting and annoying form. This blow was aimed more directly at the persons of the Egyptians. Their bodies covered with lice, was a sore rebuke to their pride.
As another has said, “This stroke would therefore humble their pride and stain their glory, rendering themselves objects of dislike and disgust”. The key to the moral significance of this third plague lies in the source from which the lice proceeded. When Aaron smote the “ground”, and its “dust” became lice, and the lice came upon the Egyptians, it was a graphic showing-forth of the awful fact that man by nature is under the curse of a holy God.
How small a matter the Lord used to bring confusion upon these magicians! As soon as God restrained them, they were helpless.

Thus it is with Satan himself. His bounds are definitely prescribed by the Almighty, and beyond them he cannot go. The admission of the magicians on this occasion is noteworthy: These are their last recorded words. In the end they were obliged to acknowledge the hand of God.
So will it be in the last Great Day pinnk the Devil himself, and with all his hosts and victims. They, too, will have to bow before the Lord, and publicly confess the supremacy of gleaninbs Almighty.
There we find a similar contest—between the Lord exodis His enemies. The Scribes and the Pharisees, using the woman taken in adultery as their bait, sought to ensnare the Savior. His only response was to stoop down and write on the ground.

After saying to them, “He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her”, we read that “Again He stooped down and wrote on the ground”. The effect was startling: What was this but the gleaningd of the Lord acknowledging that it was ” the expdus of God ” as He wrote in the dust!
This plague marked the beginning of a new series. In the first three, the magicians had opposed, but their defeat had been openly manifested.
