Text: Exodus 9:1-35
“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.” Verse 3 (NKJV) Here, God was judging the Egyptian God called Apis, which was in form of a bull. God wanted to show Pharaoh and his henchmen that if animals could die in such a way then there god, Apis, was useless, otherwise it should have saved their animals.do you worship a god that you carry around or any other object that is created? Worship the Creator .You are only able to worship God ,the Creator when you are in Christ ,the Way ,The Truth and the Truth .Wen you are in Christ ,you will not die!(v.6)
Through the sixth plague, God was judging the Egyptian god Isis which was the god of medicine. This god failed to reverse the boils on all the Egyptians. The boils were so severe that the magicians could not stand before Pharaoh for two reasons mainly:
2.They were defiled and therefore could not stand before Pharaoh.
The seventh plague ,God wwas judging the the Egyptian god Nut ,that controlled the sky .this god failed to control the hail as it was believed it could by the Egyptians.
Meditate on verse 4 .What encouragement do you get from this verse?
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ ,I pray for the protection of your children .Give them victory over the devil’s temptation .Amen.
