No Coincidences

Kari BrowningBlog, General, Uncategorized

It is not a coincidence, I believe, that the coronavirus quarantine falls at the same time that the plagues occurred in Egypt. The plagues persuaded Pharaoh to let the children of Israel leave Egypt. Passover is known as the “Season of our Freedom.” As they left Egypt on Passover, Moses took with him the bones … Read More
