Scripture: Exodus 9:1-7
Exodus 9:1-7 says, “Then the 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. For if you refuse to let them go, and still hold them, behold, the 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. And the Lord will make a difference between the livestock of Israel and the livestock of Egypt. So nothing shall die of all that belongs to the children of Israel.’”’ Then the Lord appointed a set time, saying, ‘Tomorrow the Lord will do this thing in the land.’ All the livestock of Egypt died; but of the livestock of the children of Israel, not one died. Then Pharaoh sent, and indeed, not even one of the livestock of the Israelites was dead. But the heart of Pharaoh became hard, and he did not let the people go.” The demonstration of God’s judgment on the livestock was classic. It was very, very clear who was under judgment and who was not. It was very clear who was righteous and who was not. God made it clear and made a statement by the judgments. God made a statement about who moved His Hand to judgment and who did not. Moses and Aaron moved the Hand of the Lord to judgment. No one else’s attempts worked. It was made abundantly clear to Pharaoh who spoke for God and who did not. Can we expect that in the days ahead? I believe we can! But are we preparing to go there? If not, we need to start! Treasonous magicians still exist!
