Exo 10:10 And he said unto them, Let the LORD be so with you, as I will let you go, and your little ones: look to it; for evil is before you.
Exo 10:11 Not so: go now ye that are men, and serve the LORD; for that ye did desire. And they were driven out from Pharaoh’s presence.
Pharoah knew that if the men went the full three days into the wilderness that they would soon return to their wives and families, and to slavery.
Just like the devil doesn’t mind if you go to Church as long as you come home and serve him in the same manner afterwards.
He’ll play second fiddle for one hour a week as long as he gets the other 167 hours!!!
b) Wives and children too...
Here’s a subtle compromise for you... Parents claiming to serve the Lord but not including their children!
They are our precious gift to give back to the Creator.
Men in the wilderness while their children are in Egypt- What an anomaly! Can one serve both? No!!!
Act 16:31 And they said, Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved, and thy house.
Claim it and believe on Lord Jesus!
It works! I know!
My dad claimed me and God was faithful! Amen? Not just in my salvation, but He miraculously turned this ex-gang banger from a convict to a convert and then to a minister of the Gospel. Amen? God Is Good!
Parents, let’s not just get the young people saved, but let’s get them out of Egypt,
Away from the border-line, out beyond the camp with our Lord Jesus.
Beware of the compromise of sending just one delegate to Church or prayer meeting!
Take the whole family! Claim the whole family!
Moses said everyone must go! Male, female, old, and young!!!
5) The Fourth Compromise of Pharoah...
a) The people, but not the cattle...
Exo 10:24 And Pharaoh called unto Moses, and said, Go ye, serve the LORD; only let your flocks and your herds be stayed: let your little ones also go with you.
Exo 10:25 And Moses said, Thou must give us also sacrifices and burnt offerings, that we may sacrifice unto the LORD our God.
Exo 10:26 Our cattle also shall go with us; there shall not a hoof be left behind; for thereof must we take to serve the LORD our God; and we know not with what we must serve the LORD, until we come thither.
Did Moses accept this wonderful offer?
Everybody could go, even to make the three day journey to the very spot that God wanted them to go and worship! NO!!!
Moses rejected it because it was still incomplete obedience.
It was still compromise.How could they sacrifice without animals? Impossible!
b) Unconditional worship...
How can we worship without presenting our possessions to give Him as He requires?
A man being baptized discovered that he had left his wallet in his pocket. He took it out and gave it to a friend saying it has nothing to do with this baptism. The minister replied I either baptize you with the wallet or not at all.
Here is one point where we cannot permit compromise.
God told them to go and worship with sacrifices, but did not specify which animals or how many.
God demands us unconditionally.
All that we have. Husbands, wives, children, possessions.There’s no compromise. We cannot bargain with God.
He’s either Lord of all or not Lord at all.
Praise God, Jesus is worthy of all. Amen?
Let not one hoof remain behind. Everything
