Very early in Israel’s history God wanted everyone to know who His people were. Every plague that was sent upon the Egyptians was done so that they knew there was a difference. God gave them a different diet because they were to be different. God had them dress differently than the Egyptians because He wanted there to be a difference. God was not as interested in them looking more like Egypt so that they could reach the Egyptian people. He knew that their difference would cause the Egyptians to want to follow the ways of the LORD. God wanted His people to be different because He was putting His branding on them.
