Exodus 7:12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods.
An epic battle between the Satanically inspired and empowered false gods of Egypt and the one true and living God is about to ensue. Here at the onset, God makes is clear who will prevail.
Aaron cast down his rod and it became a serpent. The sorcerers of Egypt did the same. Yet, Aaron’s rod then proceeded to swallow up their rods. God was showing them that though they might have some small power, it is nothing compared to Him. He is able to swallow up the false gods and show to all the world who is superior.
There is only One true and living God. There is only One worthy of worship. No other god is any match for Him. Even when it looks like the enemy can imitate His power, there is no need to be afraid or concerned. God will prevail. God will subdue and destroy all other “gods.”
