Life of Moses #8

The first five plaques judged Egypt's idols; the 2nd five were personal. Moses is being transformed (spiritual growth). They show the increasing hardening of Pharaoh's heart (he hardening his own heart). Judicial hardening (Exo 9:8-12, Rom 2:4). God had been good to Egypt; that should lead us to repentance. The gifts from God are to point us to Him -- evidence of His character (Act 14:17, Act 17:27, Jam 1:17). God has put eternity in man's heart (Ecc 3:11). Visible creation has evidence of God (Rom 1:18-20); when men reject God, they loose His blessings. Boils and hail - the sixth plague also in tribulation (Rev 16:1-21). God's purpose for Pharaoh is His Glory (Exo 9:13-17, Rom 9:17, Isa 43:7, Psa 76:10). God is able to draw a line between His people and Satan's (Exo 9:18-26). Pharaoh sins more with more plagues(Exo 9:27-35, 1Th 5:9). Men seek death because of the locust plague during the tribulation (Rev 10:1-29). Moses now calls the shots in Egypt; he has grown into the man and leader God intended.
