Exodus 11:

God told Moses that this was going to be the final plague on Egypt and on Pharaoh that would set the Israelites free completely. God commanded Moses to tell the Israelites men and women to demand gold and silver from the Egyptians as they left because God has now put fear in the Egyptians because of the Plagues from Moses' staff. God expects all oppressed people to attack the economy of the oppressors in order to successfully request reparations from the oppressorsThis is God's justice and judgment against the oppressors for the oppressed as God's promised Moses even before the plague startedIt is God's spiritual formula for freeing all people from the oppression of human greed. God told Moses to tell Pharaoh that God was going to go throughout Egypt and all firstborns of human as well as cattle will die to bring great mourning. Also that all the officers of Egypt will come and bow to God, and let the Israelites go because God will intentionally hardened his heart so that God could perform miracles in Egypt while freeing the Hebrews.   

Exodus 12:

God told Moses and Aaron to tell the Israelites that on the 10th day of the first month, they are to take a one year old male lamb of a sheep or goat according to what they can eat, even if small families have to pair up.  On the 14th day of the month, they are to kill it by twilight and put the blood on the top and sides of the door post where they ate it roasted over fire with bitter herbs and bread without yeast. They are also to dress up, wear their sandals, hold their staff, and eat it in haste because God was passing over them and burn anything that should be left till morning (God wanted them to dress for victory while they did their Passover). God was to pass-over when he sees the blood on the Hebrews' doorpost while he kills all the firstborns of the Egyptians and their animals.  It was the day God was going to show humanity that all their numerous gods was nothing compared to the one true God and it is a day to be celebrated for generations.  That night, every house in Egypt had a dead firstborn.  Pharaoh called Moses that night and asked him to take all the Hebrews and leave.  As they Hebrews left, the requested gold and silver from the Egyptian who gave them whatever they wanted as they left because they wanted them all out so that they do not die too.  The Israelites spent 430 years in Egypt.

Exodus 13:

God asked Moses to consecrate all firstborn males among the Israelites and their animals because the first born of every womb belongs to God.  Moses told the people to observe this day when they get to the promised land of Canaan.  God took them through the desert near the Red Sea, which was longer, instead of through the Philistines.  God felt that the Hebrews, despite ready for war, would return to Egypt if the Philistines attacked. Moses took the remains of Joseph along.  God led the Hebrews by a pillar of clouds by day and a pillar of fire by night to give light.             

Exodus 14:

God  told Moses to turn around and encamp in the desert so that Pharaoh will think that the Hebrews are confused.  God will then harden Pharaoh's heart so that Pharaoh will pursue them, then God will get glory through the defeat of the Mighty Pharaoh and the great army of Egypt. God was determined to win back humanity by showing that he was God against the human world power of the time, the human god, and the worship of many gods.  Soon, Pharaoh was upset that he had let the Hebrews go and now they have lost their services (free labor they now have to pay the Egyptians for), so he got his army on chariots and horses, and ran after them.  When the Hebrews saw the Egyptian come, they accused Moses of bringing them to die in the desert instead of being buried in the graves in Egypt. They insisted that they had warned Moses to leave them alone to serve the Egyptians, but Moses brought them to the desert to die in the name of freedomPeople do not want the pain to success; they just want to enjoy and talk about the success.  Moses told the Israelites that God was going to deliver them and that these Egyptians will be seen no more.  God then made Moses divide the sea with his staff so that the Israelites can go through. Both the angel of God and the pillar of clouds that were once ahead of the Hebrews moved to the back to create darkness for the Egyptians while giving light to the Hebrews.  This was done to separate the two groups through the night.  Moses divided the sea with the staff so that the Hebrews went through and the Egyptian followed.  God told Moses to stretch his staff again and the sea covered and killed the Egyptians.
