Q. If the plagues of Egypt are a type of Tribulation and God doesn’t spare the Isrealites until the 5th plague(in fact their lives get much worse as they begin), is this symbolic of a mid trib rapture? I believe in the pre-trib, but haven’t been able to come up with an answer to the above with any satisfaction.
A. Some people believe the plagues of Egypt are a model of Daniel’s 70th week in certain ways, like the believing Jews being protected from the last half of the 70th Week when they flee to the desert (Rev. 12:14), just as their ancestors were protected from the worst of the plagues. But you won’t find a model of the Church in the plagues of Egypt because the Church won’t be present on Earth during any of Daniel’s 70th Week.
