Vengeance is Mine Says the Lord

Vengeance is Mine says the Lord

Do you have enemies who are persistently harassing you for no good reason? 

Are these enemies more powerful than you so that there is nothing much you can do physically about them?

If you are in such a situation take heart as you continue crying out to God for help and remind yourself of what He did to Pharaoh and the Egyptians who had cruelly enslaved the Israelites. (Exodus 7:14-11:10)

The First Plague of Egypt Blood
The waters in the rivers, streams, ponds and all pools of water in Egypt and even water that had been collected in wooden buckets and stone pitchers were turned into blood and the fish died. This made the river stink and the Egyptians could not drink its water. 
Result after Plague ended: 
No fish and stinking surroundings.



The Second Plague of Egypt Frogs
Frogs came from the rivers, streams and ponds went into the houses, courtyards, fields and even the kneading bowls, ovens and beds in the bedrooms of Pharaoh, his servants and all the Egyptians .  
Result after Plague ended
No fish and stinking surroundings.  



The Third Plague of Egypt Lice
All the dust in Egypt was turned into lice which covered humans and animals. 
Result after Plague ended
No fish and stinking surroundings.  



The Fourth Plague of Egypt Flies 
Pharaoh, his servants and all the Egyptians were covered with thick swarms of flies which filled homes up to the ground where they stood. God made a distinction and there were no flies in Goshen where the Israelites lived. 
Result after Plague ended
No fish and stinking surroundings.   



The Fifth Plague of Egypt Livestock Death
Cattle, horses, donkeys, camels, oxen and sheep belonging to the Egyptians were struck with a severe illness that they all died. God also made a distinction and none of the animals owned by the Israelites died.
Result after Plague ended
No fish and stinking surroundings. 
No cattle, horses, donkeys, camels, oxen and sheep.

Result after Plague ended
No fish and stinking surroundings. 
No cattle, horses, donkeys, camels, oxen and sheep.    



The Seventh Plague of Egypt Hail
Egypt was covered with the worst hail it had seen in its history of Egypt as the Lord sent mighty thunder and hail mixed with fire that killed every person and animal in the fields. It also struck the herbs, flax and barley and broke every tree in the field. However in the land of Goshen there was no hail.

No cattle, horses, donkeys, camels, oxen and sheep.  
Herbs, flax and barley destroyed.

The Eighth Plague of Egypt Locusts
Locusts came from an east wind and filled Pharaoh's houses, those of his servants and all the Egyptians. They also covered the land so that no one as able to see the ground and the land was darkened. There was nothing green left on the trees and on the plants in the field throughout all of Egypt since they ate the herbs and fruit from the trees that had been spared by the hail. 
Result after Plague ended

No cattle, horses, donkeys, camels, oxen and sheep.  
Herbs, flax and barley destroyed. 
Trees broken.

No cattle, horses, donkeys, camels, oxen and sheep.  
Herbs, flax and barley destroyed. 
Trees broken. 
All herbs and fruits eaten by locusts 



The Tenth Plague of Egypt Death of the Firstborn 
All the firstborns in Egypt from Pharaoh's child to the firstborn of his servants and those of their animals died and there was a great cry in Egypt. However once again not one firstborn from the Israelite camp died.   
Result after Plague ended
No fish and stinking surroundings. 
No cattle, horses, donkeys, camels, oxen and sheep.  
Herbs, flax and barley destroyed. 
Trees broken. 
All herbs and fruits eaten by locusts

In addition to the effects of these plagues the Egyptians had also lost a substantial part of their wealth since the Israelite men and women had asked their Egyptian neighbors for articles of silver and gold which they were granted.

No cattle, horses, donkeys, camels, oxen and sheep.  
Herbs, flax and barley destroyed.

Then Pharaoh took all his horses and all the chariots of Egypt which had captains over them and together with his horsemen and army, they pursed the Israelites as they crossed the Red Sea. (Exodus 14:7-9) But the Lord drowned them in the Red Sea. (Exodus 14:28) 
Permanent Result
No fish and stinking surroundings. 
No cattle, horses, donkeys, camels, oxen and sheep.  
Herbs, flax and barley destroyed. 
Trees broken. 
All herbs and fruits eaten by locusts 
Dead human and animal firstborns 
Lowered financial status due to loss of gold and silver
Loss of Egyptian army personnel together with their chariots

Therefore believe that God will fight for you and deal with your enemies even if you cannot see how He is dealing with them in their big mansions. 
They may be suffering from diseases which begun when God told them to stop harassing you but they refused to listen.
They may be suffering from losses in their fields or businesses as they persist in harassing you who is a servant of God. 

In conclusion, Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves (Romans 12:19) even with your mouth. 

Instead, Give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. (Romans 12:19)  
It is God Who avenges for me (Adapted 2 Samuel 22:48)
