We often think about how Egyptians made Israel suffer in slavery. However, we overlook how Egyptians were sold into bondage in their own country. Jesus said, with the same measure we judge others, we will be judged back. Did Israelites suffer as slaves in Egypt because of what Joseph did to Egyptians? We may never know.
No (Matt 15:11). Further, believing that we are to literally gorge our eyes out can only be a joke, especially given that Christ healed the sick, including the blind.I am very certain if I started cut my appendages off in front of you and the whole congregation that they would not let this happen. Sick stuff. …
Plague always occurs when God is angry. Pharoah restored Abraham’s wife because of God’s plague upon him and his household. The plague during the golden calf incident ended when all who sinned against God are dead. God destroyed all who followed Baal of Peor using a plague. When people wrongly accuse Moses, God plagued the people until Moses prayed for the accusers. God was angry with Israel who moved David to take a census and plagued the people. It was only withdrawn when David prayed for the land. What will it take for COVID-19 plague to end?
It is often assumed that the plague in Israel due to census was because of the sin of David. However, comparing the events mentioned in Samuel and Chronicles with the census law, it is evident that the plague was due to God’s anger on Israel, not because of any sin of David.
God made families be closer than ever in lockdowns due to coronavirus pandemic. People no longer serve money. God made them scramble for essentials. God is saving lives by making it harder for abortions. God is closing down institutionalised false churches. God stopped prodigal lifestyles in the whole world through social distancing. This is truly a blessing from God. While coronavirus is a blessing, it is also a warning for what will come next.
A year ago, when a rugby player posted God’s warnings for sinners, he was sacked. Even his gofundme page was shut down. But God knows that He is sending COVID-19 and wants to save His children. So, He plundered from His enemies and gave to His children, just as He did to Egyptians. Once He made sure His children are safe in the ark, He opened the flood gates of heaven to send plagues over all the earth so that all the disobedient, all who hate Him, His enemies and all who commit abominations can be in ruins. God is right here, reigning over all the earth, passing through us and plaguing His enemies, bringing nations to ruins, and plundering them while protecting His children as in the days of Moses.
Plagues occur on earth when God’s wrath is revealed. While coronavirus is causing global pandemic with several dead and causing financial crisis throughout the world, God is sparing many. In this post, we will explore God’s judgments for using plagues, its results and how we can escape them.
Herod is always viewed as a murderer of John the baptist. But the gospels portray him as someone who feared John, gladly heard his preaching and even protected him. Just as the seed sown among thorns, we can see how Herod who believed in John’s preaching, eventually murdered him because of the cares of this world choked him instead of repenting from his sin.
When God initially sent plagues to Egypt, the magicians of Egypt were able to do the same with their enhancements which hardened the heart of Pharaoh. In modern times, when God sends plagues through smoke, bushfires, hail and other natural disasters upon nations, we have climate cults who using their ‘climate emergency’ enchantments, harden the hearts of the people. Are you acknowledging God’s hand in all these plagues to obey His voice, or are you hardening your heart by listening to climate change non-sense?
Jacob impersonated as Esau, deceived his blind father and stole his brother’s blessings. Was Jacob blessed according to the blessings received? Instead of those blessings to be a master, Jacob was deceived and had to serve others for his own wife. In this post, we will explore how anything received by deception will never be a blessing for us.
From burning bush to the mountain burning with fire, Exodus is filled with bushfires. While these bushfires in Australia are God’s judgment for homosexuality and abortion laws, many scenes from news and the media closely resemble scenes from Exodus. In this post, we will have a glimpse of what the ancient Israelites may have experienced during their Exodus journey.
