I would like to thank the team of Oasis Infobyte for giving me this awesome opportunity to enhance my skills and work on some amazing projects. During this internship, I was assigned task of 3…
This would be done in two parts; chapters 1-15, and the rest of the chapters tomorrow. I would be bringing out the important elements of the book.
Before I proceed, I want to point out that taking out time to study the Bible is fun. It is tasking, but with the right resources you will begin to enjoy it.
The story begins with the Israelites becoming slaves in a land they once flourished in freedom. The story got on, painting a vivid picture of the miseries of the Israelites.
The slavery of this nation had already been foretold in Genesis 15:13,
Moses is born; the one who would lead his people from slavery. However, he messes things up by killing an Egyptian. What he did earn the Israelites extra 30 years.
Moses encounters the burning bush and is sent by God to go back to Egypt to lead the people out of captivity. From the moment God instructed Moses to deliver His people, He repeats that he would ‘harden the heart of Pharaoh’
This got me a bit confused. If God hardened the heart of Pharoah, why then did He punish him?
As I read further, I found out that in Moses and Pharoah’s first encounter, Pharoah’s heart grew hard without God’s input. Pharaoh was an arrogant man who was set in his ways, unwilling to bend despite all the signs Moses performed.
A man that could drown babies without flinching? He already had a hard heart, God only stepped in to make his destruction easier. Pharaoh was never going to repent.
In the first five plagues, Pharaoh hardened his heart. God hardened his heart after the last five plagues. God gave Pharaoh many chances to change but he refused.
At some point, his officials begged him to let the Israelites go, but Pharaoh had reached a point of no return.
God bends Pharoah’s evil towards His own redemptive purposes. He used what the enemy meant for evil for the good of the Israelites.
God’s love for mankind is shown in two forms; Justice and Judgment. Justice for the Israelites has He brought them out of slavery, and Judgement upon Pharoah for every wicked act.
I believe that the destruction of Pharoah was necessary. It doesn’t sound nice, we want to see God as loving and can not bring ourselves to think that he could destroy people.
God’s justice system is needed for people who are oppressed. God would be unfair if He didn’t step in when people are maltreated.
As we have learned, He is also slow to anger, giving ample time for people to turn from their wicked ways. His desire is that people are saved.
Another lesson I learned from these chapters: God is faithful, keeping the promise he made to Abraham. God will also go to any length to deliver His people.
This should give us hope as children of God. Every promise He has made will be kept and brought to fruition.
