Moses and the Works of God

  1. Moses and the Works of God
    • The Plague of Locusts
    • The Plague of Darkness
    • The Death of the Firstborn
Proverbs 4:19 “But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble.”

Exodus Ch.10: 1-20 Ch.10:21-28 Ch.11: 1-10,

Remember, the three points we have been identifying during this review of the plagues:

  • The primary purpose of the plagues was to bring glory to God, and only secondarily to free the Children of Israel.
  • The confrontation occurring during this time was really between God and Satan, over Israel. All other conflicts were simply the symptom of the true battle.
  • The nine plagues are broken down into three groups of three each. Through Moses, God warns Pharaoh of each of the first two, and the third arrives unannounced. Previously, we looked at the first of the last triad of plagues, the plague of Hail. The important points to remember here are:

  • Again, the plague was selective, falling only on the Egyptians, bypassing the Israelites. In addition, enough of a warning was given to the people of Egypt, that those who heeded God’s word would be able to save their livestock and servants.
  • God made it clear His purpose was to show His glory to the entire world. It was for this purpose, the King had been placed in a position of power.
  • Finally, Pharaoh admitted he was a sinner. But, as is often the case, he didn’t repent. He was only trying to get God to end the plague. As soon as it was over, the members of the court of Egypt hardened their hearts and would not free the people. Exodus Study to be continued.

Next, we will discuss the Plague of Locusts.
