Scofield's Reference Notes

Exodus 7

Verse 5


A prophetic sign also. The nations shall know Jehovah when He restores and blesses Israel in the kingdom. (Isaiah 2:1-3); (Isaiah 11:10-16); (Isaiah 11:1); (Isaiah 60:4-5); (Ezekiel 37:28).

Verse 11

like CF. 2 Timothy 3:8; Exodus 8:18

Neither Satan nor his tools can create life: Revelation 13:15 will be a "lying wonder": 2 Thessalonians 2:9

Verse 12

Aaron's rod

(Cf) Exodus 4:2 As Moses' rod was the rod of power, the rod of the King Deuteronomy 33:4; Deuteronomy 33:5 so Aaron's was the rod of life, the rod of the Priest. As here the serpents, symbols of Satan, who had the power of death ; Revelation 12:9; Hebrews 2:14 are swallowed up, so in resurrection death will be "swallowed up in victory" ; 1 Corinthians 15:54; Numbers 17:8.
