Images from the Exodus are mixed into the seven bowls of judgment prepared for those committed to evil and blasphemy. The Song of Moses sung after the crossing of the Red Sea and the song at the end of his life recently sung on the Sabbath reading, keep the focus upon God’s ultimate triumph over all evil. There is simply no way that evil is going to be victorious; God’s love will triumph.
Do not be afraid of the images of the blood that flows in the plagues listed. Indeed, God’s love and victory over evil began on the cross where the sea of God’s own blood in Christ streamed down for the salvation of us all. The plagues of wrath will come to an end; God’s love will not.
