Our Hebrew Ancestors Aaron and Moses bravely went and spoke with Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. They told him, “This is what Yah, the Elohim of Israel, says: ‘Let my people go so they may hold a festival in my honor in the wilderness.’ ”
But the king replied, “And who is Yah? Why should I listen to him, I don’t know Yah and I will not let Israel go.” Pharaoh was so angry after hearing Moses and Aaron’s request on behalf of Yah that he sent orders to the Egyptian slave drivers and the Israelite foremen that same day: “Do not supply any more straw for making bricks. Let them get it themselves! But still require them to make the same daily amount. They are lazy, that is why they’re crying out. Therefore, load them down with more work. Make them sweat! That will teach them to listen to lies!”
When Moses saw how miserable his fellow Hebrew brothers and sisters became, he went back to Yah and prayed: “Why have you brought all this trouble on your own people, Master? Why did you send me? Ever since I came to Pharaoh as your spokesman, he has been even more brutal to your people!”
Yah answered and said, “Moses, go back to Pharaoh. Because his heart is hard, he will do everything he can to resist me and keep my people in bondage. However, he will eventually feel the force of my strong hand. He will let my people go. In fact, he will force all of Israel to leave his land!”
Once more, Moses and Aaron appeared to Pharaoh the King of the Egyptians as Yah commanded. While there, Aaron threw down his staff and it became a snake, but when Pharaoh saw his own magicians had done the same he was not impressed. He stubbornly refused to listen to the message Yah gave through Moses.
Yah then told Moses to warn Pharaoh that if he did not let his people go, he would turn the Nile into a river of blood. But when it happened, Pharaoh was still unmoved. That is when Yah brought a series of plagues on all the Egyptians—he sent frogs, gnats, and flies that came in such large numbers they swarmed the land, covering everything and everyone!
Still, Pharaoh was stubborn, and kept the Hebrew families in bondage. Yah then sent mysterious diseases on the Egyptian animals, causing them to die. This was followed by terrible, itchy, painful boils that broke out on the skin of the Egyptians, all over their bodies. But still, Pharaoh refused to let Yah’s people go.
Hail then fell from the sky and destroyed all the livestock in the field, and all the crops the Egyptian farmers had planted for food. Then a cloud of locusts swooped down and stripped the vegetation in the city and countryside, where the Egyptians lived. Every green leaf and blade of grass was eaten up by the locusts! Finally, the land was covered in darkness for three . . . whole . . . days.
As Yah had told Moses and Aaron, Pharaoh did in fact continue to resist the many miraculous signs, plagues, and disasters. He was truly stubborn and continued to keep the Hebrews in bondage.
Moses and Aaron had been visiting Pharaoh throughout all the plagues, and during each plague, Pharaoh would agree to let the Hebrews go. But when Moses stopped the plagues from happening, Pharaoh would change his mind.
Finally Yah said to Moses, “I will send one last plague upon the Egyptians, after which Pharaoh will force all of Israel to leave his country.” Then Yah gave Moses another message to deliver.
So Moses announced to Pharaoh, “About midnight tonight I will pass through the middle of Egypt, and every firstborn male, from the royal household to the servants’ quarters, will die. Even the firstborn from the livestock will die. Then a loud wail will rise throughout the land of Egypt, a wail like no one has heard before. There will be great tears of sadness flowing from parents mourning their children. Only my people will be spared this disaster. Then all the officials of Egypt will beg us to leave, they will say, ‘Hurry, and take all your followers with you!”
After saying all these things to Pharaoh, Moses then stormed out from Pharaoh’s presence and went to his Hebrew family and friends to prepare them for the final judgment the Egyptians were going to suffer that very night.
Moses spoke to the whole community of Israel, instructing each family to choose a lamb or goat and kill it that evening. They were to take some of the blood from the animal and smear it on the top of the doorframes of the houses where they were to eat the lamb or goat. So the people of Israel did just as Yah had commanded through Moses and Aaron. That night, Yah kept his promise and killed all the firstborn sons of the Egyptians, even the firstborn of the livestock!
Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron during the night. “Get out!” he ordered. “Leave my people and take the rest of the Israelites with you! Go and worship Yah as you have requested.”
Before the sun rose the next morning, all the Hebrews set off, taking their flocks and herds with them. The mourning Egyptians watched the Israelites with great sorrow and anguish as they walked off to freedom in the desert.

Yeshua to the Rescue Series Summary
In Isaiah chapter 59 verse 14 to 18 we read:
14 Injustice is everywhere; justice seems far away. Truth is chased out of court; honesty is shoved aside.
15 Everyone tells lies; those who turn from crime end up ruined. When Yah noticed that justice had disappeared, he became very displeased.
16 It disgusted him even more to learn that no one would do a thing about it. So with his own powerful arm, he brought salvation.
17 Justice was Yah’s armor; saving power was his helmet; anger and revenge were his clothes.
18 Now Yah will get furious and do to his enemies, both near and far, what they did to his people.
Did you see that, in all these stories, Yah and his son made promises to rescue his people, which they followed through on and were able to keep? In fact, they always keep their promises. Numbers chapter 23 verse 19, says:
19 Elohim is not a man, so he does not lie. He is not human, so he does not change his mind. Has he ever spoken and failed to act? Has he ever promised and not carried it through?
Have you noticed that, whenever our nation was in captivity, Yah and Yeshua always rescued us? In these last days, he has also promised us that he will come and rescue us one final time and bring us to New Jerusalem, where we will dwell for all eternity. Continue to set yourself apart. Stand watch with us here at Little Kingdom Preppers, and be ready, both physically and spiritually, for Yeshua’s return.
Yeshua was the Savior and Redeemer of our ancestors, and he remains the same for us as well, for, in Jeremiah chapter 16 verses 14 and 15, he tells us:
14 “But the time is coming,” says Yah, “when people who are taking an oath will no longer say, ‘As surely as Yah lives, who rescued the people of Israel from the land of Egypt.’
15 Instead, they will say, ‘As surely as Yah lives, who brought the people of Israel back to their own land from the land of the north and from all the countries to which he had exiled them.’ For I will bring them back to this land that I gave their ancestors.
All praises to the Most High Yah.
