Exodus 10

 

And the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these my signs before him:

And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son’s son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the Lord.

And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.

Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast:

And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which groweth for you out of the field:

And they shall fill thy houses, and the houses of all thy servants, and the houses of all the Egyptians; which neither thy fathers, nor thy fathers’ fathers have seen, since the day that they were upon the earth unto this day. And he turned himself, and went out from Pharaoh.

And Pharaoh’s servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the Lord their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?

And Moses and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh: and he said unto them, Go, serve the Lord your God: but who are they that shall go?

And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast unto the Lord.

10 And he said unto them, Let the Lord be so with you, as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you.

11 Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve the Lord; for that ye did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh’s presence.

12 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail hath left.

13 And Moses stretched forth his rod over the land of Egypt, and the Lord brought an east wind upon the land all that day, and all that night; and when it was morning, the east wind brought the locusts.

14 And the locust went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they; before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such.

15 For they covered the face of the whole earth, so that the land was darkened; and they did eat every herb of the land, and all the fruit of the trees which the hail had left: and there remained not any green thing in the trees, or in the herbs of the field, through all the land of Egypt.

16 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I have sinned against the Lord your God, and against you.

17 Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and intreat the Lord your God, that he may take away from me this death only.

18 And he went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the Lord.

19 And the Lord turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt.

20 But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.

21 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.

22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:

23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

24 And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the Lord; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones also go with you.

25 And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the Lord our God.

26 Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the Lord our God; and we know not with what we must serve the Lord, until we come thither.

27 But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let them go.

28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die.

29 And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again no more.

  1. 3 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.

    Sometimes in our walk with God, there comes a time when we must be honest and sincere with our selves and check our spirits. Sometimes we allow our carnality to rise above our spirits and we become more than we should. We have to evaluate our level of attitude, our level of commitment and the level of our integrity for the kingdom of God. We often have to find ourselves on bended knees before the throne of God.

    Scripture states:
    Hebrews 4:16
    16 Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.

    We have to find humility to overcome the flesh and bow ourselves before the throne of God and seek his face. When the times are going tough and we need that help, there is no other place to find it except at and altar before the throne of God. The necessity of honesty and sincerity before men and before God will get more of the anointing to flow than confidence and attitude. It’s time to get the attention of this world and portray the love of God and preach the gospel of Jesus until the trumpet sounds.

  2. It’s our choice to allow our heart to communicate with our ears after we reject what God has been telling our heart.

    Moses is the mouth of God
    Aaron is the mouth of Moses

    Exodus 10:2 KJV
    [2] And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son’s son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the Lord .

    Exodus 10:9 And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast unto the Lord .

    Obedience is better than sacrifice
    Mark 7:15 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man.
    Mark 7:15-17 There is nothing from without a man, that entering into him can defile him: but the things which come out of him, those are they that defile the man. For from within, out of the heart of men, proceed evil thoughts, adulteries, fornications, murders, Thefts, covetousness, wickedness, deceit, lasciviousness, an evil eye, blasphemy, pride, foolishness: All these evil things come from within, and defile the man.

    Romans 11:8 KJV
    [8] (According as it is written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eyes that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day.

    Romans 11:22-24 KJV
    [22] Behold therefore the goodness and severity of God: on them which fell, severity; but toward thee, goodness, if thou continue in his goodness: otherwise thou also shalt be cut off.
    23] And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be graffed in: for God is able to graff them in again.
    24] For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert graffed contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches , be graffed into their own olive tree?

  3. 20 But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.
    21 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.
    22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:

    While God cast down darkness all over Egypt for 3 days the Egyptians were already blinded with darkness from day one. The people in this world that don’t know Jesus have no idea how dark of world are in. Jesus commands us turn into the world into be a light unto them and challenges what good lamp would do underneath the table. The closer you get to God the more things are revealed about his goodness. That’s why it is so imperative that we bring this light to the world.

  4. But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart once more, and he would not let them go.
    Exodus 10:27 NLT
    https://bible.com/bible/116/exo.10.27.NLT

    The Lord knew what He was doing when hardening Pharaoh’s heart. In Egyptian history I don’t think they ever recovered fully from the damage done. Even with all of the Wonder and destruction poured out on Egypt at that time as a form of Judgement for not releasing the Hebrews it harmed their economy to where they did not full recover. There is historical and archaeological evidence that the Hyksos invaded Egypt and put the remaining people in slavery after the army and Pharaoh were buried at the bottom of the Red Sea.
    We cannot be too careful in our reverence to the Almighty God. What we may have brought on other could be our own final Judgement. Lord, we Revere You today. My Lord and King! Help us to love our neighbors as ourselves.

  5. Exodus 10
    27 But God kept Pharaoh stubborn as ever. He wouldn’t agree to release them.

    28 Pharaoh said to Moses: “Get out of my sight! And watch your step. I don’t want to ever see you again. If I lay eyes on you again, you’re dead.”

    How sad that even after all the plagues that had come upon the Egyptians their leader still remains hardened against God. Throughout each chapter Pharaoh’s heart seems to be hardened whether by self or God. He has no regards in the trouble that truly has destroyed the confidence and security of the people he was leading. Yet he continues to revel against the true God. He just could not let God’s people go. They were his servants they were working for him . This world and its leaders takes no regard of the judgement of God that has fallen and more to come. I think if the scare of aids a disease that began to come upon people living a lifestyle of homosexuality. It was a scare for a while yet people soon forget and continued in sin. Pharaoh seemingly forgets the hardships too quickly. What will it take for this world to know who God really is. We must humbly come before God but boldly seek Him for this lost world. False terrible leaders are on the rise. We must stay strengthened in the power of the Holy Ghost. We must pray for the leaders of our nation and all over the world leaders . We must pray for our local leaders. In Jesus name

  6. Verse 2 ERV “I also did this so that you could tell your children and your grandchildren about the miracles and other wonderful things that I have done in Egypt. Then all of you will know that I am the Lord.” This is one of the lessons to this day that the children know and have heard about. It shows how strong and how mighty our God is.

    Verse 23 AMP “The Egyptians could not see one another, nor did anyone leave his place for three days, but all the Israelites had [supernatural] light in their dwellings.” John 8:12 says it all “Once more Jesus addressed the crowd. He said, “[a]I am the Light of the world. He who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.” Shout it out today:

    Shine Jesus
    You shine for all the world to see
    You are glorious

  7. And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the Lord ; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones also go with you. And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the Lord our God. Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the Lord our God; and we know not with what we must serve the Lord , until we come thither. But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let them go.
    Exodus 10:24‭-‬27 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/exo.10.24-27.KJV

    Pharoah was going to let the people go, but was not going to allow them to sacrifice. When we go before God: there should always be a sacrifice. When our sacrifice is blocked it can cause us to become hardened. Never allow yourself to lose out on what God can do for you. Yes, obedience is better than sacrifice, but don’t allow your obedience to overrun that which God calls you to sacrifice before him. Thank you Jesus.

  8. 7. Pharaoh’s officials now came to Pharaoh and appealed to him. “How long will you let this man hold us hostage? Let the men go to worship the LORD their God! Don’t you realize that Egypt lies in ruins?” NLT

    It must have been very frustrating to all of the Egyptians for Pharaoh to keep bringing all these plagues upon them when they thought he had to power to make them stop by letting God’s people go, but they didn’t know that God had hardened Pharaoh’s heart.

    Since God is the same today as He was then, let’s not be too quick to judge people for their seemingly apparent stubbornness; God could have hardened another heart as He did in Pharaoh.

  9. FIRST THE KINGDOM
    CHILDREN OF LIGHT

    22 And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
    23 They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

    This is an amazing illustration of the Endtime church. Pharaoh and Egypt being the world and the children of Israel being the Church of JESUS.

    The in it is gloom and doom, taunts of racism, global warming, abortion, mass murders, sex sins and scandals; we are surrounded by darkness. The darkness of sin and its promotion, reproduction and magnification.

    BUT GOD

    Darkness may cover the world, but the Church has HIS Light and will live in HIS Light. The Blessings and Benefits of living for and serving JESUS are so abundant and plentiful that we should always be thankful, joyful and hopeful. We are not of this world and thereby should not be engulfed in the cares of this world or life.

    Walk in the Light, because through JESUS we are the LIGHT of this dark world.

    GO LIVE for JESUS

    Matthew 5:14 You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.

    Philippians 2:15 That you may show yourselves to be blameless and guileless, innocent and uncontaminated, children of God without blemish (faultless, unrebukable) in the midst of a crooked and wicked generation [spiritually perverted and perverse], among whom you are seen as bright lights (stars or beacons shining out clearly) in the [dark] world,

  10. And Pharaoh’s servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the Lord their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed? And Moses and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh: and he said unto them, Go, serve the Lord your God: but who are they that shall go? And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast unto the Lord . And he said unto them, Let the Lord be so with you, as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you. Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve the Lord ; for that ye did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh’s presence. And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand over the land of Egypt for the locusts, that they may come up upon the land of Egypt, and eat every herb of the land, even all that the hail hath left.
    Exodus 10:7‭-‬12 KJV
    https://bible.com/bible/1/exo.10.7-12.KJV

    God told Pharoh through Moses what he wants, and all that he wants to go, but Pharoh wants to still exercise contole, so much that even his people were like Pharoh. let them Go, your land is destroyed, Pharoh still cant humble himself because he thinks he is in charge, not so…

    First the Kingdom

    When darkness falls across the Land…God is Good!

  11. iLove the Kingdom
    Exo 10:21 And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.

    The Egyptians worshipped the sun god rah. In Egyptian mythology, Ra was the god of the sun. He was the most important god in Ancient Egypt. He had many names, such as Amun-Ra, and Ra-Horakhty. It was said he was born each morning in the East, and died each night in the West. In the night he traveled through the underworld.

    God was showing the Egyptians that rah was no match for Him. This darkness was so black it could even be felt. A person could not see their hand in front of their face. This is dark y’all and it proves there is not any like the God of the Hebrews.

  12. 4 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast.

    If God tells us to do something we need to do it quick so that we don’t get consequences, but if we don’t do that quickly and just not care for it we will receive consequences that we don’t want like us not getting what we want or we have a bad day and we receive bad things.

  13. 2 “And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son’s son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the Lord.”
    ‭‭
    You have to keep repeating your testimony , so your son and daughter can’t hear it . So they know from your testimony how good God been to you and to them,

    A.L.M.A.S.

  14. 3 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.

    Humility we all should be humble but many struggle with it. Why? PRIDE!!!! The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God: God is not in all his thoughts. Psalms 10:4, KJV. Pride destroys Faith. It stops you from giving GLORY to God for all you do and all you have!!! It will stop you from repentance and it will stop your prayer. If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. 2 Chro. 7:14 It will even stop your healing!!!! Pride will not allow you to grow. Humility does not mean you let everyone walk all over you, it does means that in EVERYTHING we do we do it unto Christ and by Christ we live. Col 3:23 And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men; So today GIVE ALL GLORY AND HONOR TO CHRIST AND BE HUMBLE FOR HE WAS HUMBLE Matthew 11:29 – Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

  15. 16 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron in haste; and he said, I have sinned against the Lord your God, and against you.
    17 Now therefore forgive, I pray thee, my sin only this once, and intreat the Lord your God, that he may take away from me this death only.
    18 And he went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the Lord.
    19 And the Lord turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt.
    20 But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, so that he would not let the children of Israel go.

    Wow. Pharaoh knew that he had sinned, and asked for forgivness. What kind of lesson can we learn from this? That even a king over one of the strongest nations, would cry out for forgiveness. How much more should we ask, being the chuldren of God? When we seek after the Kingdom of God, we should ask for forgiveness from others, because there is no room for strife and anger in the Kingdom. Yes we know that it will come from time to time, but between brothers and sisters of God. Why do we allow such petty things cone bewtween us? In order for the Kingdom to flow, we must work towards unity.

    Seek ye first the Kingdom of God

  16. 1 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these my signs before him:

    Signs and Wonders are for the unbeliever. It’s unfortunate that people won’t believe the Creator of this Universe and won’t serve Him for who He is, therefore He must do signs and wonders in order for them to believe.

    When God performs miracles, it raises the faith of those around and allows them to believe that He can and will do the same for.

    I don’t want my relationship with the Lord to be predicated on what He can do for me. I want my love for Him to be overwhelming with gratitude just for who He is – My King!

  17. Exodus 10 -22-23 [Amp] So Moses stretch out your hand toward the sky, and for three day’s a thick darkness was over the land of Egypt.
    [23] The Egyptians could not see one another, not did anyone rise from His place for three days; But all the Israelites had natural light in their dwellings.
    Lord I pray today let your light shine through out of this world in Jesus name.

  18. Let people know where your power comes from
    We are the light yes but we need to open our mouth and tell the facts.
    I feel like Moses took his alter everywhere he went and was ready with an out stretched arm

    Moses wasn’t rich but he knew where his power came from, Pharaoh was scared if all the people knew the POWER OF GOD

    2 Corinthians 4:17-17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.

    Psalms 93:1 The LORD reigneth, he is clothed with majesty; the LORD is clothed with strength, wherewith he hath girded himself: the world also is stablished, that it cannot be moved.

    Exodus 10:10 And he said unto them, Let the Lord be so with you, as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it ; for evil is before you.

    Exodus 10:25 And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the Lord our God.

    Pharaoh knew it wasn’t Moses power that was

    Romans 13:1-3 Let every soul be subject unto the higher powers. For there is no power but of God: the powers that be are ordained of God. Whosoever therefore resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God: and they that resist shall receive to themselves damnation. For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to the evil. Wilt thou then not be afraid of the power? do that which is good, and thou shalt have praise of the same: For he is the minister of God to thee for good. But if thou do that which is evil, be afraid; for he beareth not the sword in vain: for he is the minister of God, a revenger to execute wrath upon him that doeth evil.

    2 Chronicles 10:4 Thy father made our yoke grievous: now therefore ease thou somewhat the grievous servitude of thy father, and his heavy yoke that he put upon us, and we will serve thee.

  19. Pharoah started bargaining with Moses so he could still control the Hebrew peoples and their livestock. They had lost so much of theirs and were suffering from the plagues, yet Pharoah’s heart was still hard by God’s design. God wanted his people to fully trust in him for the days that lay ahead. Today we need to fully Trust God for the days that are ahead of us too. Revival, harvest or trials- all require faith.

  20. 1 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these my signs before him:
    2 And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son’s son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the Lord.
    3 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.
    Exodus 10:1-3

    Here the LORD says that He hardened Pharaoh’s heart, yet in Exodus 9:34 it says that he Pharaoh hardened his heart. Both were true, and one does not deny the other. In hardening Pharaoh’s heart, God allowed him to have what he sinfully desired a hard heart against the LORD and His people.
    God’s work was not only for the sake of the generation of Moses and Pharaoh, it was also for your son and your son’s son. God does mighty works among us so that we can encourage generations to come.

    Getting to the heart of the matter, God warned Pharaoh to humble himself or the worst plague of locusts ever seen would come upon Egypt. Pride was at the heart of Pharaoh’s problem; he simply didn’t want to give into God.
    It’s an important question that God would ask to anyone: How long will you refuse to humble yourself before Me?

    I pray today for humbleness before the Lord. That everything we do is in obedience of His word.

  21. Exodus 10:22-23
    22) And Moses stretched forth his hand toward heaven; and there was a thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days:
    23) They saw not one another, neither rose any from his place for three days: but all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.

    So Thankful that JESUS “called us out of darknenss into His marvellous light.” (1 Peter 2:9b)

  22. 10 Pharaoh said, “The Lord be with you—if I let you go, along with your women and children! Clearly you are bent on evil. a 11 No! Have only the men go and worship the Lord, since that’s what you have been asking for.” Then Moses and Aaron were driven out of Pharaoh’s presence. (NIV)

    Pharaoh wants to let the Hebrews go only to stop the plagues from destroying his nation. He really is only thinking about himself. Really, he wants to keep the Hebrews enslaved to build his vision. God wants ALL his people to be freed not just the men. Righteous men don’t leave behind their women and children for freedom. We do not negotiate with terrorists. We definitely don’t leave behind our children at the hands of the Egyptians (world). Compromise is not in the Lords will and His response to Pharaoh is rapid in that the locusts broke forth without question.

  23. “Then the Lord said to Moses, “Return to Pharaoh and make your demands again. I have made him and his officials stubborn so I can display my miraculous signs among them. I’ve also done it so you can tell your children and grandchildren about how I made a mockery of the Egyptians and about the signs I displayed among them—and so you will know that I am the Lord.” So Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said, “This is what the Lord, the God of the Hebrews, says: How long will you refuse to submit to me? Let my people go, so they can worship me. If you refuse, watch out! For tomorrow I will bring a swarm of locusts on your country. They will cover the land so that you won’t be able to see the ground. They will devour what little is left of your crops after the hailstorm, including all the trees growing in the fields. They will overrun your palaces and the homes of your officials and all the houses in Egypt. Never in the history of Egypt have your ancestors seen a plague like this one!” And with that, Moses turned and left Pharaoh.”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭10:1-6‬ ‭NLT‬‬

    God’s work was not only for the sake of the generation of Moses and Pharaoh; it was also for your son and your son’s son. God does mighty works among us so that we can encourage generations to come.

  24. 1 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these my signs before him:

    2 And that thou mayest tell in the ears of thy son, and of thy son’s son, what things I have wrought in Egypt, and my signs which I have done among them; that ye may know how that I am the Lord.

    3 And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.

    4 Else, if thou refuse to let my people go, behold, to morrow will I bring the locusts into thy coast:

    5 And they shall cover the face of the earth, that one cannot be able to see the earth: and they shall eat the residue of that which is escaped, which remaineth unto you from the hail, and shall eat every tree which groweth for you out of the field:

  25. “Pharaoh’s officials said to him, “How long will this man be a snare to us? Let the people go, so that they may worship the Lord their God. Do you not yet realize that Egypt is ruined?””
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭10:7‬ ‭NIV‬‬

    It’s crazy to think these Egyptians saw Moses and Aaron as a snare to them when in reality the snare was actually Pharaoh. What are being to those around you, a snare or a helping hand leading the way? Don’t be the reason those around you go through difficult times instead be the reason they are surrounded by blessings! Don’t be like Pharaoh and hold them back but give them the liberty to grow in God abundantly!

  26. No one chooses to have a spiritually hard heart…but anyone is susceptible to becoming hard when they do not depend on Jesus. The plagues of locusts and the plague of darkness would not move Pharoah to listen to the Lord.
    A hard heart comes in many forms. It may be due to discouragement, based on past abuse, broken relationships, depression, or other severe hardships. Inversely, a proud heart, like Pharoah can also result in a hard heart because we don’t see the need to depend on anyone or anything else. A proud heart’s greatest danger is the non-recognition of it’s own condition. Many of us are guilty of having a judgmental heart: judging other people’s behavior but making excuses for their own poor choices. Finally, a hypocritical heart is one who’s personal choices contradict what they share with others publicly. Reading all reminds me to listen to what the Lord is telling me and not to let my heart close it’s doors.

  27. 7 And Pharaoh’s servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare unto us? let the men go, that they may serve the Lord their God: knowest thou not yet that Egypt is destroyed?

    8 And Moses and Aaron were brought again unto Pharaoh: and he said unto them, Go, serve the Lord your God: but who are they that shall go?

    9 And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast unto the Lord.

    The servants were ready to let the people, they seen what God was doing but Pharaoh still couldn’t see what was going on. We are blinded when we are sinning because we don’t want to see us destroying ourselves. Keep your eyes and ears opened for Jesus!

  28. “And the Lord turned a mighty strong west wind, which took away the locusts, and cast them into the Red sea; there remained not one locust in all the coasts of Egypt.”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭10:19‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    God can take care of your pestilence just like that a flash of an eye. God speed is Gods speed. So when your in trial and you’re in turmoil Gods gonna driver you and probably within the very moment you ask. But I like how God tells moses to stretch his hand and he doesn’t even hesitate he just does it and BAM God starts moving. You God moves to obedience whether it’s obedience in the Bible or obedience to your pastor God will move because both of those examples are also Gods voice. Find yourself like moses when you’re obedient to the voice of God.

  29. Can you feel the darkness around you?

    21 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.

    The Lord will allow you to feel darkness around you at times but not to scare you. It is to let you know to start shining the light. When I’m in a dark place (spiritually) I will talk in tongues and speak the name of Jesus very boldly and I’m telling you quickly the darkness flees. This is why the Hebrews has light in their homes when everything else was dark. They carried the light with them. It doesn’t take long for a small light to be seen in immense darkness. Let’s let our light shine so that the darkness flees around us.

  30. 28 And Pharaoh said unto him, Get thee from me, take heed to thyself, see my face no more; for in that day thou seest my face thou shalt die.
    29 And Moses said, Thou hast spoken well, I will see thy face again no more.

    Sometimes we make things harder upon ourselves because of our own pride. Where humidity might have made things easier on us, price makes everything harder..

  31. 21 And the Lord said unto Moses, Stretch out thine hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even darkness which may be felt.

    Tnn is caught my attention as it was written twice in the chapter, despite being more times throughout the story that it happened, that Moses stretched out his hand. Now God, could have as well done everything on His one. Yet, this is something about the obedience of man, mixed with, faith, belief in God can and will, plus the word of Go, that releases the supernatural.
    As Moses obeyed the command, expecting God to do something, faith, God responded to what he “said” he would do.

    What is something that we are believing God for, but is tagged to our obedience, do that he may do as he said he would do? If we do our part and obey his command, he will work His wonders for us.

  32. This time when God told them there would be a plague there was no relief plan. It would go in the field, homes, and everywhere in between. Afterwards when some of the Egyptians are talking one says how much longer will Moses trouble the Egyptians? It’s interesting how a different point of view makes Moses the bad guy.

  33. 27 But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let them go.

    Pharaohs heart was constantly hardened by God. Yet Moses was asked by God to go back and request the people be let go. If it was me I would feel that God was working against me yet He isn’t. He is working things to the very end. God always has our best intentions in mind even when it looks and feels like he’s not.

  34. 1 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these my signs before him:

    God will let you’re enemies know that he has all power. If we follow the directions that God gives, it will make our life a whole lot easier. We must not stray away from his commandments. When we try to do our own thing, we end up in a ditch, but if we can continue to follow God’s directions, we can reach the promise land. Everything may not make sense right now, but keep God first and the revelation of what he is doing will come.

  35. 9 And Moses said, We will go with our young and with our old, with our sons and with our daughters, with our flocks and with our herds will we go; for we must hold a feast unto the Lord.

    Don’t leave anything behind! Don’t settle or negotiate any deals, God has blessed you, take back everything that is yours!

  36. 1 And the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these my signs before him:

    Moses has stuck around a lot more than most. A lot of people I know would have already thrown in the towel. They would have said, “Again?” . . “You want me to do that again?”’

    24 And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the Lord; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones also go with you.
    25 And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the Lord our God.

    Pharaoh wanted to ensure that he kept them and wanted to make sure that all of Israel returned. So if he kept their animals they would return and not completely leave. But God wanted them 100% delivered.

    26 Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not an hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the Lord our God; and we know not with what we must serve the Lord, until we come thither.
    27 But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let them go.

    When God delivers you, you will not have to leave anything behind. You may have to wait a little longer and for His timing but once you’ve waited the time He will deliver in everything every time.

  37. “And Moses and Aaron came in unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, How long wilt thou refuse to humble thyself before me? let my people go, that they may serve me.”
    ‭‭Exodus‬ ‭10:3‬ ‭KJV‬‬

    My prayer is for those that are to the North, South, East and West of us that may have a harden heart like Pharaoh. I pray that the Lord would soften their hearts and remove the scales from theirs eyes and open up theirs ears. That The Lord would stir a hunger for the Truth and His Spirit.

  38. 7Pharaoh’s officials now came to Pharaoh and appealed to him. “How long will you let this man hold us hostage? Let the men go to worship the LORD their God! Don’t you realize that Egypt lies in ruins?

    We all need someone in our lives that will correct us, counsel us, and pray over us just as Pharaoh had. They tried to convince Pharaoh to let the men go. We too should listen to men of God who advice us on matters when needed.

  39. And the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh: for I have hardened his heart, and the heart of his servants, that I might shew these my signs before him:
    Exodus 10:1 KJV

    Who are we connected to? Do we surround ourselves woth those who bring a different perspective to the table, who are uplifting, and u afraid to tell us when we’ve done something wrong? Or are we surrounded by those who can find something wrong with everything and take on the same stinkin thinkin we may have?

    I thank God for sending me to POFW and surrounding me with those who have and continue to hold me accountable!

  40. 27 But the Lord hardened Pharaoh’s heart, and he would not let them go.

    Honestly, I don’t understand why God hardened Pharaoh’s heart consistently, and that’s okay. I do not have to understand why. There are so many choices and events that occur that can leave me baffled, but I trust in God. I practice simple obedience and submission, that even when I don’t understand, I trust God is working it all out for my good.
