MIXED MULTITUDES LED THE ISRAELITES INTO SIN The mixed multitude of Gentiles who left Egypt with the children of Israel were people of their generation and culture. They were idolaters. They worshipped idols of every description and the thought of having just one Diety to worship was alien to them. They were Egyptians plus other races of people who were living in Egypt at that time.

There are many areas of our lives that need to be surrended to the Lord and for so me people, their dogs may be one area they need to surrender to Him. Dogs may seem to be a mundane topic but remember, all scripture is written by inspiration from God and valuable for teaching ... and for instruction in righteousness.

The Lord associates dogs with pigs, murderers, idolatry, witchcraft, prostitutes, homosexuals, gore, violence, evil, worthlessness, foolishness, greed, decept
