Summary: Let’s walk and learn from the next three plagues that come upon the nation of Egypt and see the current knowledge we can glean from this.
The Plagues in our Lives affect us and the Things Around us
Our livelihood may be affected
Our health may be affected
DBF Sunday Sermon, 9/15/02
The last few months have been difficult for a lot of Christians in Alaska. We have had several of our pastors and families involved in accidents, suffering sicknesses, and losing loved ones.
I see this as a positive in that we obviously are starting to make headway in and around Alaska and the Old Deceiver is getting concerned and if it were possible he is trying to shift our attention from concentrating on the will of God and striving to accomplish God’s good and perfect will.
You see the biggest difference I see in the plagues that Satan bring into my life is that it is an extremely temporary situation.
Since I have come to revel in my weakness “When I am weak then am I strong…FOR I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHO STRENGHTENS ME.” I take comfort in Philippians 4:13 and I am able to rest in what some would consider an infirmity.
Can you today praise God for what some would consider an infirmity?
When Satan attacks and tries to tear you down from the outside in, can you take solace through Christ Jesus from the inside out?
Take heart Brothers and Sisters, Jesus tells us HE will be with us to the end of times, in each and every situation we come into…as long as we walk with HIM and not away from HIM.
Let’s walk with Moses today and examine the fifth, sixth, and seventh plagues that God brings upon the nation of Egypt and the differences on the nation of Israel.
In awe I look and relate to the wonderful protection of God upon HIS people in the midst of the plagues that were brought upon the land by the hardness of heart of the nation of Egypt. I see this hardness of heart surrounding our people today and I pray for God’s strength in the midst of the plagues that are sure to come so that some may believe.
Our livelihood may be affected
Exodus 9:1-7 (KJV)
Then the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him, Thus saith the Lord God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.  For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still,  Behold, the hand of the Lord is upon thy cattle which is in the field, upon the horses, upon the asses, upon the camels, upon the oxen, and upon the sheep: there shall be a very grievous murrain.  And the Lord shall sever between the cattle of Israel and the cattle of Egypt: and there shall nothing die of all that is the children’s of Israel.  And the Lord appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the Lord shall do this thing in the land.  And the Lord did that thing on the morrow, and all the cattle of Egypt died: but of the cattle of the children of Israel died not one.  And Pharaoh sent, and, behold, there was not one of the cattle of the Israelites dead. And the heart of Pharaoh was hardened, and he did not let the people go.
Then the Lord said unto Moses, Go in unto Pharaoh, and tell him…Praise God for His truth, we see again and again that God goes and tells the nations what is needed.
