God is all these things, but don’t mess with Him because you can’t handle Him.
29 For our God is a consuming fire.
3 The LORD is a man of war: the LORD is his name.
8 Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.
God usually used other nations to do His fighting. But when it comes to His children, He takes care of business His self.
Egypt was a super power and there wasn’t a nation strong enough to defeat them. So He took care of this situation His self.
22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the LORD, Israel is my son, even my firstborn:
23 And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn.
He told Pharaoh, you may bully around other nations, but now your messing around with my kids.
Your not fighting slaves. Your messing with the King of Kings.
So He began to use weapons of mass destruction.
I will smite all thy borders with frogs:
and the frogs came
smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast;
I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people,
and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses,
shall be a very grievous murrain.
6 And the LORD did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.
Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace,
Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.
14 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.
18 Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.
23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.
to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast:
13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt
14 And the locusts went up over all the land of Egypt,
15 For they covered the face of the whole earth,
21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.
22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
4 And Moses said, Thus saith the LORD, About midnight will I go out into the midst of Egypt:
5 And all the firstborn in the land of Egypt shall die,
29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the LORD smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt,
30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night,
and said, Rise up, and get you forth from among my people, both ye and the children of Israel; and go, serve the LORD, as ye have said.
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?
