Exodus 9

Then the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still,

Behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thy cattle which is in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain.

And the Lord shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children’s of Israel.

And the Lord appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the Lordshall do this thing in the land.

And the Lord did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.

And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go.

And the Lord said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.

And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.

10 And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.

11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians.

12 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had spoken unto Moses.

13 And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

14 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.

15 For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth.

16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.

17 As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let them go?

18 Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.

19 Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die.

20 He that feared the word of the Lord among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:

21 And he that regarded not the word of the Lord left his servants and his cattle in the field.

22 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.

23 And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the Lordsent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the Lord rained hail upon the land of Egypt.

24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.

26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.

28 Intreat the Lord (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.

29 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the Lord; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the Lord‘s.

30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the Lord God.

31 And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled.

32 But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they were not grown up.

33 And Moses went out of the city from Pharaoh, and spread abroad his hands unto the Lord: and the thunders and hail ceased, and the rain was not poured upon the earth.

34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.

35 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the Lord had spoken by Moses.

48 thoughts on “Exodus Chapter 9 – Chronological 

  1. 6 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

    Whenever you are in God’s will and you are obedient to his word then he will never cease with the blessings that he to bestow upon us during our walk with him, we must never cease from obeying his will and must always serve him with everything that’s in us.

  2. 26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

    Goshen was known as the land of plenty. God blessed the Children of Israel during their 40 years of bondage and they prospered, even in adversity. God will always be there nobody the circumstances when you walk in His will.

  3. 11 And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians.
    12 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had spoken unto Moses.
    13 And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

    We live in the world today that demands understanding. It’s always seeking for an explanation and believes that faith is a thing of the past. They want to see evidence and sometime that’s not even enough to convince them. There is never been a more prevalent time where our faith is more important then what is around us. what is most vital to our walk with God is knowing that he is behind the scenes doing something we cannot see and our faith remains intact that he will guide us.

  4. It left all of Egypt in ruins. The hail struck down everything in the open field—people, animals, and plants alike. Even the trees were destroyed.
    Exodus 9:25 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/exo.9.25.NLT

    How devastating it is to watch so many die on front of you because of the hardened heart of one man. I pray for those that are in ruin because of their loved ones being too stubborn and prideful to humble themselves before the Lord. Entire families can be ripped apart because the head of the house won’t submit to the Lord. God I thank You for keeping Your hand on my family that we may serve and worship You. Jesus name

  5. 4 And the Lord shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children’s of Israel.

    So I have heard it taught two different ways. Some have said, that in nine of the plagues affected the Israelites. Then others have said only in verses that clarify like this one that the children of Israel were protected. It mentioned later in this chapter that that Israelites were spared from the hail and fire. But some of the plagues were not clarified if they were spared from, such as the frogs, flies, etc.

    27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
    28 Intreat the Lord (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.

    This almost sounds like a repentant heart. It sounds genuine or if you look at it a little differently it could be taken sarcastically or almost mocking. Because he says, “the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.” It’s unlike pharaoh’s character to say that hg, himself is wicked. However, at the same time I feel as though it may be genuine for a split second. You know the thoughts ran through his mind about how wonderful and marvelous, yet scary these plagues were to accomplish.

    34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.
    35 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the Lord had spoken by Moses.

    Even if he did have a repentant heart we know that Pharaoh and God were not finished yet. There was still more to come. God had not broke Pharaoh yet. But soon.

  6. 6 And the Lord did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.

    7 And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go.

    8 And the Lord said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.

    Why does Pharaoh insist on disobeying and not fearing the Lord? It’s similar to when we stray away and decide to mess up Gods plan, we are only hurting ourselves. We make excuses of why we should do what we want, quiet your heart and your mind so you can hear God.

  7. Exodus 9
    4-35 But when Pharaoh saw that the rain and hail and thunder had stopped, he kept right on sinning, stubborn as ever, both he and his servants. Pharaoh’s heart turned rock-hard. He refused to release the Israelites, as God had ordered through Moses.

    Warning after warning. Judgement upon judgement. Gods wrath had been poured out upon Egypt
    Yet somehow Pharaoh ‘s Heart was hardened . What had caused this Pharaoh to lead his people into such chaos. Their animals their crops their own health. God kept proving to the Israelites and to the Egyptians His power. Yet Pharaoh continues in his stubbornness. How sad to watch people delivered from addictions and demonic lifestyles then turn their heart right back to the same way they use to live. God’s wrath seemingly has no effect upon their life. Their hearts become hardened by mere rebellion against the word of God lack of respect for God . If you notice there was also a group of Egyptians who believed what God was doing
    1 All of Pharaoh’s servants who had respect for God’s word got their workers and animals under cover as fast as they could, but those who didn’t take God’s word seriously left their workers and animals out in the field.

    By now I would have thought all the Egyptians would have believed yet they did not.

    The Hebrews waiting for deliverance under the protection of God and a leader following after God.
    A group of Egyptians who were under the leadership of Pharaoh who believed in the true God .
    And the Egyptians who follow after the false gods of Egypt.

    Sadly to say this is how our world is and more sadly friends and family. Miraculous actions of God and yet they make no move towards God. Some sit under leaders that have hardened their heart to truth. Others have been delivered multiple times and turn right back to what they were delivered from. Yet there is a group watching and beginning to believe like never before. I believe they are coming they are already amongst us. We must continue to hold fart to our faith. I’m sure the Israelites were frustrated but through the plagues we are seeing Egyptians who are now believing that God is God. We the church must keep in simply believing and trusting God . Deliverance will soon come . The world is watching ! We do know the true living God we can help lead and guide them. Endtime is here what are we doing with it? False leaders are rising up everyday but we must continue to take a stand in Jesus name.

  8. 16 And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.

    The very presence of God among pharaoh should had been enough to cause him to release the children of Israel. But time and time again he sinned against God and hardened his heart. Moses was the vessel that was willing to be used by God. God spoke to Moses telling him for this cause have I raised you to show the power of my presence and the power of my name be declared throughout the earth.

    Moses no matter how many times that he had to go before Pharaoh, he was willing to do as the Lord commanded. Many of us today need to find a way to clear everything out of our minds and surroundings that limits God’s power and authority. We need to be more willing and prioritize what is important in this hour. For the kingdom of God is at hand and we need laborers that are willing to follow the voice of God and be obedient.

    Seeking first the kingdom of God and all his righteousness needs to get us to a place where we are sold out to God and not this world. And God will raise us up for the greatest revival that the modern day church has seen. It’s time to get busy.

  9. Exodus 9

    1 Then the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

    2 For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still,

    3 Behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thy cattle which is in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain.

  10. So in Exodus Chapter 9 verses 1-3 it’s talking about Pharaoh telling Jesus About the Hebrews and the Hebrews serving Pharaoh and it’s Talking about pharaoh refusing to let the Hebrews go and it is talking about Jesus putting his hand on the animals

  11. 34. And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.

    How many times has God been promised, “If you’ll get me out of this, I’ll serve you”, only to have them return to status quo until the next crisis?
    If not for God’s patient mercy, we’d have no hope.

  12. And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked. Entreat the Lord (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer. And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the Lord ; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the Lord’s . But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the Lord God.
    Exodus 9:27‭-‬30 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/exo.9.27-30.KJV

    “I Have Sinned This Time” Good job Pharoh, but you sinned more than once, it wasnt enough that all the cattle was killed, it wasnt enough that all these things are happening to his people, he still wants them to be slaves, He saw that the children of Isreal were not affected by all these things, but it never dawned on him, man there is something greater at work here, he knew what to say to get the plague reversed, a little fake humility, so what about going to the alter and repent, Lord please forgive me, get what we want and Boom back to where we were, God knows our heart, and he knows our true intentions, but as a Father, he forgives us, stops the rain, stops the fire burning hail raging king down on us, and unfortunately like Pharoh, we go back to what we were doing, God is like a loving father, but he gets tired of the games, and then….
    Jesus help me to not be playing with repentance and to be sincere about my relationship with you!

    First the Kingdom
    Even in the Storm of a lifetime…God is Good

  13. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    GOSHEN

    4 And the Lord shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children’s of Israel.

    Living in Goshen has its Blessings and Favor that is not always connected to an increase but can be a protection against loss. Here we learn that GOD can discern even the cattle that have been dedicated to him and those that live in the Blessing of GOSHEN.

    Living the Blessed Life in GOSHEN has much to do with location and commitment, investment and service in that location. This is why it is so important for us to engage ourselves in the Church at The POFW. The Blessing of GOSHEN is spoken over us and that means that plaques that affect others will not affect us.

    May we use this powerful revelation and principle to invest ourselves in the service of JESUS through HIS church.

  14. By now I could have lifted my hand and struck you and your people with a plague to wipe you off the face of the earth. But I have spared you for a purpose—to show you my power and to spread my fame throughout the earth.
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭9:15-16‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    “For a purpose – to show you my power and to spread my fame throughout the earth.” Gods choice for us is based on our own choices in life. Basically, we can do this the easy way or the hard way but the end purpose will always result in the same way: to show His power and spread His fame (i.e. glorify Him and save souls!).

  15. For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.

    Obey His commandments and do His will, if not He will harden hearts of men, it’s always as a punishment of former sins.

    Revelation 22:18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book .

  16. Verses 20-21 AMP “Then everyone among the servants of Pharaoh who feared the word of the Lord made his servants and his livestock flee into the houses and shelters; but everyone who [b]ignored and did not take seriously the word of the Lord left his servants and his livestock in the field.” We are now in time where there is no time to play around, ignore or not take seriously what is going on in this world. If you do and are not heeding the warnings, guess what??? You are now exposing and/or leaving yourself along with those around you out in the open field of destruction.

    Proverbs 8:33 AMP “Heed (pay attention to) instruction and be wise, And do not ignore or neglect it.”

    1 Timothy 4:16 AMP “Pay close attention to yourself [concentrate on your personal development] and to your teaching; persevere in these things [hold to them], for as you do this you will ensure salvation both for yourself and for those who hear you.”

  17. 9:12 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh hearkened not unto them. Ad the Lord has spoken unto Moses.
    ——-
    The Lord heard the cry of the Israelites . He had compassion on them and of course had a plan.
    He is the one with the power but also needs a vessel.
    God chose Moses.
    Did Moses want to take the responsibility? He sure gave him excuses…. Anyways, it says that God Hardened
    Pharaoh ‘s heart.
    ——-
    With that said…. God will do what it takes ( what it’s necessary) for his will to come to pass in our lives.
    When we cry out to him, he hears us, and wants to help us. But we have to understand that Gods ways are way different than ours, God’s ways of fixing problems are way different than ours.
    There is always a good reason on why God chooses to make things work for our good.
    We may not understand why. We just need to trust and k ow that the VICTORY has already been won.
    Let us submit and be wise.
    So we can obtain it.😊

  18. 1 Then the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
    2 For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still,
    3 Behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thy cattle which is in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain.
    4 And the Lord shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children’s of Israel.
    Exodus 9:1-4

    In this appeal two things were clear. First, the people of Israel belonged to God, not to Pharaoh. Second, it was clear that God wanted Pharaoh to let the children of Israel go for the sake of the LORD Himself, not even so much for the sake of the children of Israel.

    In mercy, God told Moses to give another warning, so that Pharaoh would have opportunity to repent.
    Pharaoh was responsible to treat Israel well for the sake of the LORD, not so much for the sake of Israel. In the same way, we must treat each other well not only for the sake of our fellow brother or sister, but also for the sake of the LORD. We owe it to Him even more than we owe it to them.

  19. 27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
    28 Intreat the Lord (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.
    29 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the Lord; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the Lord‘s.

    A promise broken by man.

    How often have we broken a promise? I know I have some for legitimate reasons, but for other because I did not want to do something or another reason. No matter though, i broke a promise. We all have at some point in time. We , however serve a God that is true to His promises and His Word. When we serve God, we serve a being that created the universe. I seek after His Kingdom first because I want to please Him. And when He promises me anything, I know it will be.

    So seek ye first the Kingdom of God

  20. iLove the Kingdom
    Exo 9:7  And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go.

    Lol, look at Pharaoh. He’s still a skeptic. Still wondering if the Israelites are being spared. Sending folks to spy out what’s going on in the city of Goshen. This proves his unbelief!

  21. “Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now. Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die. He that feared the word of the Lord among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses: And he that regarded not the word of the Lord left his servants and his cattle in the field.”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭9:18-21‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    Oh the fear of the Lord! Some of the Egyptians began to catch on that what God said really would happen. These Egyptians did what God said so his wrath wasn’t poured out on them as strongly as their unbelieving neighbors. These Egyptians are probably some of the ones who blessed the Israelites so much when they finally did leave.

  22. 29 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the Lord; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the Lord‘s.
    30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the Lord God.

    Pharoah spoke words he knew Moses wanted to hear and didnt mean a word of it. Moses knew he wasnt sincere. How many times have we heard children do this very thing or done it ourselves? God looks on the heart and our words must match our intent.

  23. 29 And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the Lord; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the Lord‘s.
    30 But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the Lord God.

    Pharoah spoke words he knew Moses wanted to hear and didnt mean a word of it. Moses knew he wasnt sincere. How many times have we heard children do this very thing or done it ourselves? God looks on the heart and our words must match our intent.

  24. 4 And the Lord shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children’s of Israel.

    People think that we are different because we stay separate from the world. Believe me! No matter where we go we stand out “like my family says ‘like a sore thumb ‘“ it don’t bother me one bit. They know I’m Pentecostal by the way I dress and act. Being separate from the world is a good thing for it keeps us inside the hedge area. We are protected and shield by God when we keep separate. We are His children and He know is, He knows what belongs to us and He keeps it protected. SO BE DIFFERENT, BE SEPARATE, BE HOLY!!! 1 Peter 1:16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.
    2 Cor 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

  25. What is it fining to take?

    20 He that feared the word of the Lord among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:

    21 And he that regarded not the word of the Lord left his servants and his cattle in the field.

    We all know where this ends for Egypt and Pharaoh but if you were right in the middle of it with the children of Israel, you would have to be thinking, “ What is it going to take?” The Egyptians had been plagued with all kinds of crazy bad stuff that no one could do anything about except for Moses. I guess we all go through stuff in our lives that the folks around us or probably Pastor looks at us and says” What is it going to take?” Pride is like scales over your eyes and you cannot see what God is trying to do to steer you or move you. Soon in our reading the Lord will call his own people that are delivered out of Egypt stiff necked cause they won’t hear the word of the lord. After all the plagues the Egyptians have already been through and all that the children of Israel have see God do and protect them,” what’s it going to take?” God will never make us do anything but he can be very persuasive. I don’t want to need hail and frogs to move. Help me lord be sensitive to your voice so that I can hear you whisper to me instead of being plagued to move.

  26. 26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

    When the hand of the Lord is on ya nothing can harm ya.
    Often times we start stressing over small things, unnecessary things, things that we should know God’s gonna take care of. If you’re living right and being obedient then you have nothing to worry about. Gods on time and that’s not gonna change he will always make a way when it seems there’s no way.

  27. 6 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel lived, was there no hail.

    The blessed place, the protected place, the place of favor. The Israelites lived in the land of Goshen, and were exempt from the plagues that the Eqyptians

    We must not take for granted the “blessed place.” It does rain on the just as well as the unjust and sometimes we endure hardness and situations as well.

    Sometimes because of the disobedience of someone else we are in the place where their folly comes to us as well. The heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and so all the Egyptians suffered because of the lesson God was trying to teach Pharaoh.

  28. 24 So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.

    25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.

    26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail

    When we obey God’s commands we will be blessed abundantly.

  29. Exodus 9 : 16 [Amp] But for this very purpose have I let you live, that I might show you My power , and that My Name may be declared thoughtout all the earth. Here God was teaching Pharaoh a lesson.
    [ Rom. 9:17] For the Scripture says to Pharoh , I have raised you up for this very purpose of displaying My power in [ dealing] you, so that My Name may be proclaim the whole world over. So then He wills ( chooses) and he hardens ( make stubborn and unyielding the heart of) whomeverHe wills. Because Pharoh heart being harden the Egyptians had to suffer. God will teach a lesson when we are disobeintant to God. It’s to make you more like him and love more like him. It’s going to rain on the just and the unjust . Thank you for saving me and my family.

  30. “Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭9:26‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    What a great thing to stay in the place that God has provided for you. God has provided protection for the children of Israel in the midst of their affliction. My prayer is when I find myself in those situations of affliction that my eyes would be open to the work that God is doing in my life. That I would see that he is the Almighty God and he is working for me.

  31. Exodus 9:19-21
    19) Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, they shall die.
    20) He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:
    21) And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his servants and his cattle in the field.

    He that hearkened, feared, and regarded the Word Of The LORD, brought his servants and cattle into the houses for safety, BUT he that hearkened not, feared not, and regarded not the Word Of The LORD, left his servants and cattle in the fields to die.

    For those who hearken, fear, and regard the Word Of The LORD today, they will get themselves and their families into the Church for safety, BUT for those who will not hearken, not fear, and not regard the Word Of The LORD, will continue to live in this world and die in their trepasses and sins.

    GET TO CHURCH!!

  32. “Then the Lord said to Moses, “Get up early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh. Tell him, ‘This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: Let my people go, so they can worship me. If you don’t, I will send more plagues on you and your officials and your people. Then you will know that there is no one like me in all the earth. By now I could have lifted my hand and struck you and your people with a plague to wipe you off the face of the earth. But I have spared you for a purpose—to show you my power and to spread my fame throughout the earth. But you still lord it over my people and refuse to let them go. So tomorrow at this time I will send a hailstorm more devastating than any in all the history of Egypt. Quick! Order your livestock and servants to come in from the fields to find shelter. Any person or animal left outside will die when the hail falls.’” Some of Pharaoh’s officials were afraid because of what the Lord had said. They quickly brought their servants and livestock in from the fields. But those who paid no attention to the word of the Lord left theirs out in the open.”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭9:13-21‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    God wanted Pharaoh to know who was in control. As bad as it had been to this point, it was only by God’s mercy that Pharaoh and Egypt had not already been cut off from the earth.

  33. 35 And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the Lord had spoken by Moses.

    We’ve all had an encounter with a child who’s throwing a fit, and knows he’s gone too far but he’s invested so much energy he isn’t going to back down now…

    Throughout my walk with Christ I’ve witnessed myself and friends make the wrong choice at some point along the way.

    To some, that one bad choice leads to a lifetime of unfortunate circumstances. At which leads one to believe they have gone too far to turn around.

    I imagine Pharaoh was like this, hardening his heart was easier then accepting the fact he was wrong and correcting his mistakes.

    I pray I we don’t allow a prideful spirit to engulf into a hardened heart.

    I pray that we all grasp the understanding of just how much Jesus loves us!

  34. ‘Those officials of Pharaoh who feared the word of the Lord hurried to bring their slaves and their livestock inside.’

    People can be very hard-hearted and no matter how many signs are shown to them, they still won’t believe. But even in the most unlikely places, there are people who do respond to God. You can’t write off a whole nation.

  35. When we ask for things from God, do we have his authority? Moses started out very insecure when asked to speak to pharaoh. However as time has went by he is now speaking with boldness.

    How badly do we want to speak with Godly boldness? Do we want it enough to ask, seek, and knock until God answers us and to take risks that press on our timidity? Or, if we’re honest, would we rather just keep wishing we were bolder — admiring bold people, being inspired by biographies about bold people, talking with our friends about our struggles with fear — all the while staying where we feel safe and relatively comfortable and letting fear go unchallenged?

    Boldness is not constant or should not be taken for granted. We must keep praying for it whenever we need it. Even the Paul experienced this. That’s why he asked the Ephesians to pray that he may declare the gospel boldly in Ephesians 6. Boldness may be an option for us, but it’s not a given.

  36. 12 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had spoken unto Moses.

    13 And the Lord said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.

    14 For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.

    15 For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth.

  37. Holding on to the yoke when God is trying to deliver you out of the hands of Pharaoh (the thing that has you bound)

    Exodus 9:12 KJV
    [12] And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had spoken unto Moses.
    [30] But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the Lord God.
    31] And the flax and the barley was smitten: for the barley was in the ear, and the flax was bolled.
    32] But the wheat and the rie were not smitten: for they were not grown up.
    35] And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, neither would he let the children of Israel go; as the Lord had spoken by Moses.

    Jeremiah 18:10 If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.
    Jeremiah 18:12 And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.

    Matthew 13:15 KJV
    [15] For this people’s heart is waxed gross, and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes they have closed; lest at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and should understand with their heart, and should be converted, and I should heal them.

    Acts 28:31 Preaching the kingdom of God, and teaching those things which concern the Lord Jesus Christ, with all confidence, no man forbidding him.

  38. And the Lord appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the Lord shall do this thing in the land. And the Lord did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.
    Exodus 9:5‭-‬6 KJV

    God is a keeper … of His people AND His word!!!

  39. 6 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.

    The importance of staying in the place where God wants us, under his covering!

  40. And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go.

    Even with the miracles that Judaea wad my

  41. 34 And when Pharaoh saw that the rain and the hail and the thunders were ceased, he sinned yet more, and hardened his heart, he and his servants.

    Too many times we become guilty of going back to the same sin that God delivered us from. Once Pharaoh saw that God stopped the rain, he went back to his sin. We must learn how to continue to live free from sin even when God brings us out of it. He did not bring us out for us to go back into it. He did that we may be able to move forward in his kingdom and gives us the power to stay out of sin. We cannot allow sin to take root and lead us. The word of God will lead us where we need to go as long as we are willing to follow.

  42. 25 And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.
    26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.
    27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
    28 Intreat the Lord (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.

    Even in a blessed place we can still be living in bondage. Goshen was the place of blessings that the people lived in yet in this place they were under the bondage of pharaoh. This gives us hope that daily we can live in the blessings of God even thought the world arounds us is filled with hate and the enemy is trying his best to bring us down. God has plan to bring us out we just have to be willing to submit to the plan of the wilderness experience for a short while before we get to the promised land.

    Goshen was not the final destination but a place of blessings until we get to inhabit the promised place that God has prepared for us.

  43. 26 Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.
    27 And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the Lord is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.

    Tragedy shouldn’t be the only thing that gets people’s attention. Pharaoh has been playing yo-yo back and forth about letting the Israelites go. It is evident to him the difference between the Hebrews in Goshen, who live protected by the hand of God, and their defiant Egyptian nation. He recognizes that the plagues befalling him and his people are for their wickedness. He is only willing to cooperate under up until the plagues subside.

    God hardens Pharaohs heart because He is not finished with Egypt yet. We shouldn’t wait until God eases up on us to run back to our sinful patterns either. We should use those opportunities to take the correction and grow from it.

  44. 12 And the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the Lord had spoken unto Moses.

    Several times now we read; “and the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh..” it was the Lord Himself being in charge of even the heart of the enemy of the people of Israel. It may just have been that he was performing judgement and revenge for all he had done to the people of God. Also that the people of God may see what mighty Power and deliverance God was doing for them.

  45. “Those officials of Pharaoh who feared the word of the Lord hurried to bring their slaves and their livestock inside.”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭9:20‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    Even among those that refused to reverence God as the Almighty, there were a few that feared the Lord and hey quickly did as Moses had instructed them. When proclaiming Christ and it seems like nobody is listen, look for the few that show interest. It may be hard to find them because they blend into the crowd, but they’re there!

  46. 6And the LORD did just as he had said. The next morning all the livestock of the Egyptians died, but the Israelites didn’t lose a single animal. 7 Pharaoh sent his officials to investigate, and they discovered that the Israelites had not lost a single animal! But even so, Pharaoh’s heart remained stubborn,a and he still refused to let the people go.

    If I was Pharaoh, after seeing the Egyptians livestock die and not the Israelites, it would had made me a believer. That should have served as a warning sign, that it could happen to the men & women of Egypt and Israel will be allowed to live. But he continue with his hardened heart.
