February Two

Good morning!
So I jinxed myself. I was just telling someone who was without there computer,I couldn't live without mine but I am lucky to have back up. Ah Hum I would like to recant!! My laptop plug broke ( I am not sure how, with two toddlers and 3 dogs running around). Today I am on my daughter's dell laptop doing todays blog. The G,O,F1 and F12 keys are missing. and the two/"at" sign has to be hit hard to work and the mouse pad and lower click button doesn't work. Hey but it plays dvds for the girls just fine :).
I will be putting take laptops in to my todo list.
Here I go:

Moses returns to Egypt

stop. I have never realized how many words have O and G in them. ....

Back to yesterdays question. I have not checked to see if I had an answer yet regarding Pharaoh being a name not a title. Last night I was watching "Scooby Doo,Where's my mummy" with Scooby's number one fan, my three year old. (not for biblical research of course but for fun hee hee) and Cleopatra said she is the last of the Pharaoh's and queen of Egypt, so that kind of confirms it being a name, right?... unofficialy.
I am confused in Exodus 4:twenty-twenty6 So Moses took his wife and sons, put them on a donkey, and headied back to the land of Egypt. In his hand he carried the staff of God. And the Lord told Mses," When you arrive back in Egypt, go to Pharaoh and perform all the miracles I have emporwered you to do. But I will harden his heart so he will refuse to let your people goo. Then you will tell him, 'This is what the Lord says: Israel is my firstborn soon. I coommanded you, "let my son go,so he can worship me." But since you have refused,I will now kill your first born son!'" On the way to Egypt, at a place where Moses and his family had stopped ffr the night, the Lord cnfrnted him and was about to kill him. But Moses' wife,Zipporah, took a flint knife and circumcised her son. She toouched his feet with the foreskin and said, "Now, you are my bridegroom of bloood to me."(When she said " a bridegroom of blood," she was referring to the circumcision.)After that, the Lord left him alone.
~In twenty 1-twenty 3 I have read it over and over and I thought God was referring to killing Pharaoh's first born not Moses'.
~In twenty 4 It says confronted him and was about to kill himis that Moses' firstborn or Moses?
~In twenty 5-twenty 6 I have many questions Why wouldn't her son already be circumsized (as commanded on the 8th (or is it 9th) day after birth). What is a bridegroom of blood? Why would this make the Lord leave him alone?

Moses and Aaron speak to Pharaoh
(I keep thinking of my friend who talks about "phone..phobia I think she calls it" I bet she wishes God would give her an "Aaron" to make the phone calls for her hee hee do you get it coz Moses didn't want to do the talking) sorry....off task again.

Making bricks without straw
Is it the Israelites who made the pyramids??? Off subject but it keeps popping up in my head. My husband says that it is a mystery how they were built but it seems to me that the Egyptians made the Israelites work harder than they were able and that God was with them even if they didn't feel it.

Promises of deliverance
Exdus 6:two And God said to Moses, "I am Yahweh-'the Lord.' I appeared to Abraham, to Issac, and to Jacob as El-Shaddai-'God Almighty'-but I did not reveal my name, Yahweh, to them. What is the significance of the different names and telling humans or not?

The ancestors of Moses and Aaron

Aaron's Staff Becomes a snake
Exodus 7:5 When I raise my powerful hand and bring our the Israelites, the Egyptians will know that I am the Lord." Did they start worshipping God after this?
Exodus 7:11-twelve The Pharaoh called in his own wise men and sorcerers, and these Egggyptian magicians did the same thing with their magic. They threw down their staffs, which also became serpents! But then Aarons staff swallowed up their staffs. How did this happen? How could the Eyptian's staffs become serpants? Help!!!
