The Great Spirit continued speaking to Moses, saying, “Look here, I have made you a divine figure to Pharaoh, and your brother Aaron shall be your prophet. You shall speak all that I command you, and Aaron shall convey my words to Pharaoh, demanding that he release the children of Israel from his land.”
This is the same format the Great Creator, the Eternal Father has established with the Great Spirit. The Great Creator gives His words to the Great Spirit, our Divine Figure, and gives them to the High Priest of the Melchizedek Order. In this case, it is Moses. Moses gives the word to the king of the land. Now Moses will act as the divine figure and Aaron will be his prophet or messenger to the king of Egypt.
“I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and I will multiply my signs and wonders throughout the land of Egypt. But Pharaoh will not listen to you, for it is through great judgments that I will lay my hand upon Egypt and lead my armies and the children of Akobe out of Egypt. Then the Egyptians will come to know that I am the Great Spirit, as I stretch forth my hand upon Egypt and liberate the children of Akobe from their midst.”
Show Pharaoh My Power
Moses and Aaron faithfully carried out the commandments of the Great Spirit, just as they were instructed. At that time, Moses was eighty years old, and Aaron was eighty-three when they spoke to Pharaoh.
The Great Spirit continued to communicate with Moses and Aaron, saying, “When Pharaoh demands a miracle from you, you shall instruct Aaron to take his rod, cast it before Pharaoh, and it will transform into a serpent.”
Moses and Aaron approached Pharaoh, and they performed the divine act as commanded by the Great Spirit. Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, his servants, and the court, and it metamorphosed into a serpent.
Pharaoh Was Hard-Hearted
Witnessing this, Pharaoh summoned the wise men and sorcerers of Egypt, who also replicated the feat through their enchantments. Each of them cast down their rods, which transformed into serpents. However, Aaron’s rod devoured their rods, displaying the superior power bestowed upon him.
Yet, Pharaoh’s heart remained hardened, and he refused to heed Moses and Aaron, just as the Great Spirit had foretold.
The Great Spirit spoke again to Moses, informing him, “Pharaoh’s heart remains obstinate, and he refuses to release the people. Tomorrow morning, go and wait by the riverbank as Pharaoh goes to the water. Take the rod that was turned into a serpent in your hand and declare to him: ‘The Great Creator of the Bantus has sent me to you, commanding you to let my people go, so they may serve me in the wilderness. Yet, until now, you have disregarded my words.'”
The Beginning of the Destruction of Egypt
“This is what the Great Spirit proclaims: I will strike the waters of the river with the rod in my hand, and they will turn to blood. The fish in the river will perish, and the river will emit a putrid stench. The Egyptians will be repulsed by the contaminated water and unable to drink from the river.”
The Great Spirit instructed Moses to relay the message to Aaron, saying, “Take your rod, stretch out your hand over the waters of Egypt—over their streams, rivers, ponds, and all their pools—so that they may turn into blood. Let there be blood throughout the land of Egypt, even in wooden and stone vessels.”
Blood in the Water
Moses and Aaron followed the divine command. Aaron lifted the rod and struck the waters of the river before Pharaoh and his servants. All the waters in the river instantly transformed into blood, right before their eyes. The fish in the river died, and a repugnant odor permeated the land. The Egyptians were unable to drink from the river due to the blood coursing through its currents.
The magicians of Egypt, using their enchantments, replicated the act, turning water into blood. However, Pharaoh’s heart remained hardened, and he did not listen to them, just as the Great Spirit had foretold.
Pharaoh returned to his house, refusing to acknowledge the significance of these events. The Egyptians were compelled to dig around the river in search of water to drink, for they could not consume the blood-filled river. And so, seven days passed after the Great Spirit had smitten the river.
