    Greetings, centuries before the birth of Moses, the were generations of people who hated God, and today they still hate God. Speaking specially of the God of the Hebrews. (Read Psalms 83) After numerous generations, God (Yahweh) decided to separate a certain seed of people, (see Matthew chapter 1) from all other people upon the face of the earth to carry His Spirit into the future.

    To Lost:
    When the children of Israel left Egypt, a mix multitude also left with them and they were saved also. So anyone that had a mind to no longer be a part of the Egyptian regime or mindset, they had an opportunity to leave with the Children of Israel.

    The lamb was a picture of Christ-loved and then taken to the slaughter. The blood is shed for our safe keeping. In and through the blood we are saved. The gods of Egypt were false. The powers used by the Egyptians were satanic. Though it seemed harsh to kill even the Egyptian firstborn God's ways are just, and we must leave it with our Heavenly Father and not carry doubts and fears over it. Just saying. Thank you!
