Jehovah declared to Pharaoh that he was his firstborn son (Ex. 4:22). This means that Jehovah did not have any children before Israel. Can we fathom how was this son begotten? The firstborn of Jehovah was begotten in Egypt. This gestation was announced to Abraham. Jehovah told him: “Know for sure that your seed will live as foreigners in a land that is not theirs, and will serve them. They will afflict them four hundred years. I will also judge that nation, whom they will serve. Afterward they will come out with great wealth” (Gen. 15:13-14). The third generation after Abraham was forced to go to Egypt because of a great famine. This is how it happened: Joseph, sold to Egypt, by the mercy of Jehovah ended up as lord of Egypt, for when he interpreted the dream of Pharaoh he brought himself into his favor (Gen. 41:38-46).
Called by Joseph, Jacob arrived to Egypt with 70 people. He was already old: 130 years old (Gen. 46:27; 47:9). When his father arrived in Egypt, Joseph was 39 years old. How do we know this? When Joseph was set over Egypt he was 30 years old (Gen. 41:46). Joseph gave the interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream of the seven sleek and fat cows, and the seven lean and ugly cows that ate the fat ones, which were seven years of abundance followed by seven years of famine. The lean cows eating up the fat cows were the surrounding people going to Egypt, seeking food, transferring to Pharaoh all their gold, then their land, and finally giving themselves as slaves for the food they got. When Jacob was 130 years old Joseph declared that the seven years of abundance had ended, plus two years of famine averaged out 39 years (Gen. 45:6). As Jacob died when he was 110 years old (Gen. 50:26), Israel began to multiply along 71 years, which was the time until Joseph’s death. The people lived and absorbed the evil practices of Egypt during these 60 years. There, living under the favors of Pharaoh, the people of Israel was perverted. After the death of Joseph, another Pharaoh was raised. As the people of Jehovah multiplied and became strong, Pharaoh began to oppress the people. The oppression lasted 80 years, which was the age of Moses when Jehovah called him, saying: “I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt, and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters, for I know their sorrows. I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land to a good and large land, to a land flowing with milk and honey; to the place of the Canaanite, the Hittite, the Amorite, the Perizzite, the Hivite, and the Jebusite” (Ex. 3:7-8).
Egypt, at the time when Joseph lived there, was just feasting, bounty, corruption and idolatry. After the death of Joseph, Egypt became a true hell. THIS WAS THE WOMB THAT BEGOT THE FIRSTBORN SON OF JEHOVAH. The woman has a womb to produce children; therefore Egypt was the woman who gave birth to Israel. Who was the husband of that woman? Pharaoh. The very Jehovah proclaims who Pharaoh is, using spiritual language, for Jehovah speaks in riddles (Ps. 78:2). And he spoke by the prophetic mouth of Ezekiel: “Thus says the Lord Jehovah: ‘Behold, I am against you, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great monster that lies in the midst of his rivers, that has said, “My river is my own, and I have made it for myself”’” (Ezek. 29:3).
If Pharaoh personifies the devil and Satan, which is also the dragon, Egypt was the wife of the dragon, that is, Satan. Therefore, the firstborn of Jehovah was begotten in the womb of Satan. Look at where the firstborn son of Jehovah was begotten: SATAN! This is why Jehovah, referring to his people Israel, declares: “Yes, you didn’t hear; yes, you didn’t know; yes, from of old your ear was not opened: for I knew that you did deal very treacherously, and was called a transgressor from the womb” (Is. 48:8; 44:2).
The great inconsistence is that Jehovah announced to Abraham what was going to happen 400 years before it happened. Therefore, it was all a project of Jehovah. This project included educating his people in corruption, in prostitution, in idolatry and in slavery. Does he take the people from Egypt, and then forbids them to practice the works of Egypt? Jehovah told Moses to give the following command to the people, after he left Egypt: “I am Jehovah your God. You shall not do as they do in the land of Egypt, where you lived” (Lev. 18:2-3). The people lived 150 years under that corrupt society and had to change in thirty days! Well, if Christians of 20, 30, or even 50 years of Christian life affirm that it is impossible to live a sinless life, having the Holy Spirit as their Helper, what would we expect of a people learning bad habits for 150 years, which did not have the Holy Spirit? No way! Nevertheless, Jehovah continued to demand faithfulness, and tormented the people with diseases, pestilences, and terror (Lev. 26:16).
The behavior of this god is sadistic. He consciously puts the people in a place of degeneration, and then torments them when they are not able to change their behavior.
Another inconsistency of this god is the fact that he declares that he is against Pharaoh. He, Jehovah, declares to know the future, for he said: “Declaring the end from the beginning and from ancient times things which have not been done, saying: ‘My purpose will be established, and I will accomplish all My good pleasure’” (Is. 46:10).
Jehovah could have taken Joseph to a place that could be the womb of God, not the womb of Satan, for he is the powerful El Shaddai, who says: “I act and who can reverse it?” (Is. 43:13). When he led his people to Egypt he did not want it holy, but unclean, and after using the dragon, that is, Pharaoh, he says: “Here I am against you, Pharaoh, great dragon.” He fabricates a dragon and professes to be against it…
Let us change the topic. Jesus descended to the pit of Jehovah (Ps. 104: 5-6) to deliver the people of Israel from the terrible and dark yoke to which he was sent, and establishes his Church, which is his womb and where the new creatures are begotten by the work of the Holy Spirit. Jesus preached: “Unless one is born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God” (John 3:3). The Spiritualists use this passage to affirm the phenomenon metempsychosis, or transmigration of the soul, that is, the soul of someone dead incarnates into another being who is in the process of being generated in the womb of some woman, and is then born again (John 3:4). What Jesus is revealing is another thing. The woman to whom Christ is referring is the Church. Let us read the words of Paul: “Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself up for her” (Eph. 5:25). “For this cause a man shall leave his father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife; and the two shall become one flesh. This mystery is great; but I am speaking with reference to Christ and the church” (Eph. 5:31-32). So, the womb where the children of God are begotten is in the house where the believers meet. The seed of God, which is his word, is sown from the pulpit (Luke 8:11). The seed impregnates the heart of the hearer, and he is begotten again from an incorruptible seed (1 Pet. 1:23). As to the birth that Christ speaks to, there is no physical death, but the spiritual death symbolized in baptism (Rom. 6:3-6).
The difference between the womb where Jehovah begot his firstborn son and the womb where Jesus brings the children of God to light is so vast that it goes from hell to heaven. The womb of the wife of Jesus, which is his Church, gives birth to pure and holy children, because Jesus washes their sins by his blood shed on the cross (Rev. 1:5; Ep. 4:22-24).
