    Q: #465. How many times did God use the rod of Moses, and the rod of Aaron?

By: Steve Shirley

    A: I found 8 times that God used the rod of Moses, and 6 times that He used the rod of Aaron. Below is a chart showing each time that God supernaturally used their rods.

The rod of MosesThe rod of Aaron
(Ex 4:2-4) - Turned his rod into a snake(Ex 4:30) - Turned his rod into a snake
(Ex 9:22-23) - Used his rod to bring the 7th plague of hail(Ex 7:10-12) - Turned his rod into a snake
(Ex 10:12-13) - Used his rod to bring the 8th plague of locusts (Ex 7:19-21) - Used his rod to turn the water of the Nile to blood (1st plague)
(Ex 10:21-22) - Likely (doesn't say "rod") used his rod to bring the 9th plague of darkness(Ex 8:5-7) - Used his rod to bring the 2nd plague of frogs
(Ex 14:16,21) - Used his rod to part the Red Sea, (Ex 14:26-27), and close it(Ex 8:16-17) - Used his rod to bring the 3rd plague of lice
(Ex 17:5-7) - Used his rod to bring water from the rock in Horeb (Num 17:8) - Caused his rod to bud with almonds ***
(Ex 17:8-15) - Used his rod to help the Israelites win the war against the Amalelites
(Num 20:8-13) - Used his rod to bring water from the rock in Kadesh

*** Aaron's rod which budded was placed in the Ark of the Covenant (Heb 9:4)(Num 17:10).

     Aside from the rods of Moses and Aaron, I could only find one more instance in the Bible where a rod (staff) was supernaturally used, and that was the staff of the Angel of the Lord (likely Jesus) (Judg 6:21).
