Through the Exodus account the Holy Spirit exhibits for us both the Temporal and Spiritual deliverance of God's people from the wrath of Pharaoh, and the evil taskmasters of sin's hard bondage.
By use of the Lawgiver, God's man Moses, a great type of the Lord Christ, God shows how Christ brings His people from sin's hard bondage, to regeneration, to justice, to dominion and finally to everlasting life.
After identifying Himself to Moses as the Sovereign and Eternal Great I AM, God now sets His plan in motion. And yet, this plan is not only a mere deliverance from Egyptian bondage, and Pharaoh's tyanny. It has far reaching implications.
God is calling Israel to a complete transformation, and thus a total restructuring of Hebraic society by particular adherence to His Holy Law.
Now the LORD will bring forth His miraculous judgments upon Pharaoh, and the land of Egypt. Through a series of ten plagues, God proves to Pharaoh, to Egypt, and to Israel, that Only Jehovah is the Soverign King Who will have His people liberated for the sincerety of worship, and a societal structure suited to His righteous holy order. From the Egyptian sacred River Nile, comes the second plague; frogs.
