Week 5 Day 5
Moses and Aaron were a dynamic duo speaking faithfully for God to the king
The Pharaoh was stubborn refusing God's demands
The Egyptian people suffered bearing the brunt of the plagues
The children of Israel sat on the sidelines watching as their lives were at risk.
The purpose of miracles in the Bible is to cause people to come to know God and believe.
PLAGUES 5, 6, and 7 The response of hard-hearted Pharaoh is predictable. Exodus 9 & 10
1The Lord said to Moses, "Go in to Pharaoh and tell him,'Thus says the Lord God of the Hebrews: "Let My people go,that they may serve Me. If you refuse to let them go, and still hold them, 3the hand of the Lord will be on your cattle in the field, on the horses, on the donkeys, on the camels, on the oxen, and on the sheep--a very severe pestilence."'" 6On the next day, all the livestock of Egypt died; but of the livestock of Israel, not one died. 7The heart of Pharaoh became hard, he did not let the people go. 8So the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, "Take handfuls of ashes from a furnace." 10Then they took the ashes and stood before Pharaoh, and Moses scattered them toward heaven. They caused boils that broke out in sores on man and beast. 11The magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils. 12But the Lord hardened the heart of Pharaoh; and he did not heed them. 13The Lord said to Moses, "Rise early in the morning and stand before Pharaoh, and say, 'Thus says the God of the Hebrews: "Let My people go, that they may serve Me, 14this time I will send all My plagues to your very heart, on your servants and on your people, so that you may know there is none like Me in all the earth. 15"'"If I had struck you and your people with pestilence, then you would have been cut off from the earth. 16But for this purpose I have raised you up, that I may show My power in you, and that My name may be declared in all the earth. 17As yet you exalt yourself against My people in that you will not let them go. 18Tomorrow about this time I will cause very heavy hail to rain down, such as has not been in Egypt until now. 19"'"Therefore send now and gather your livestock and all that you have in the field, for the hail shall come down on every man and animal which is found in the field and is not brought home; and they shall die."'" 20He who feared the word of the Lord made his servants and his livestock flee to the houses. 21But he who did not regard the word of the Lord left his servants and livestock in the field. 34When Pharaoh saw that the rain and hail had ceased, he sinned yet more; and hardened his heart, 35neither would he let Israel go. 1The Lord said to Moses, "I have hardened his heart, 2that you may tell your son and your son's son the mighty things I have done in Egypt, that you may know I am the Lord."
