Exodus 9: The LORD visits the Egyptians with the plagues.
 
The word of God visits the iniquity of the Egyptians with the fifth, sixth and seventh plague. At this point, the hand of the LORD strikes the cattle of the Egyptians that are in the field, on the horses, on the donkeys, on the camels, on the oxen and on the sheep. A very severe pestilence is plagues the livestock of the Egyptians.
 
The King of Egypt refuses to allow the Israelites to go, and he still holds them. The LORD fulfills His Word, and at the appointed set time, that He would do what He said he would do, the LORD made a difference between the children of the Israel – in the land of Egypt, and none of their livestock were plagued or dead. But if the heart of Pharoah continued to be hard then he will not let the people go to serve their LORD God.
 
Many times we are on the right path to serving God and studying the word of His Son, Jesus, the Messiah of the Jewish people. His name is the highest name, and no other god can demand this praise to glorify the Father, because you have seen the Son, the first fruit of the children of Israel, the sons of God.
 
In verses, eight through twelve, Moses does as God directs him takes a handful of ashes, that is normally consecrated to the LORD God, during a burnt sacrifice, instead the ashes are sanctified before the presence of God and scattered toward the heavens in the sight of Pharaoh. The ashes become like fine dust and cause boils that break out in sores on man and beast, even the magicians, throughout the land of Egypt. However, the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils for the boils were on the magicians too.
 
In verses, thirteen through thirty five, Moses continues to hear a word from the LORD, and pleads on behalf of the Israelites, the sons of God, to let His people Go, that they may serve Him. If Pharoah continues to harden his heart as he did so with the first five plagues, more will surely come to the very heart of you, your servants and on your people – that you have never met; because God alone had raised the Pharaoh up to magnificence and the people would know that there is none like Him in all the earth (v. 16). God did not stretch out His hand to strike the people with pestilence because they would have been cut off from the earth:
 


The prophet Isaiah:

Isaiah 43:10 – “You are my witnesses,” declares the LORD, “and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am he. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me. Isaiah 43:9-11 (in Context) Isaiah 43 (Whole Chapter)

 

Isaiah 44:8 – Do not tremble, do not be afraid. Did I not proclaim this and foretell it long ago? You are my witnesses. Is there any God besides me? No, there is no other Rock; I know not one.” Isaiah 44:7-9 (in Context) Isaiah 44 (Whole Chapter)

 

Isaiah 45:6 – so that from the rising of the sun to the place of its setting men may know there is none besides me. I am the LORD, and there is no other.
Isaiah 45:5-7 (in Context) Isaiah 45 (Whole Chapter)

 

Isaiah 47:10 – You have trusted in your wickedness and have said, ‘No one sees me.’ Your wisdom and knowledge mislead you when you say to yourself, ‘I am, and there is none besides me.’ Isaiah 47:9-11 (in Context) Isaiah 47 (Whole Chapter).

 


Then the people who fear the word of God that are among the servants of Pharoah fleed to their houses; but the people who did not fear the word of God left their servants and live stock in the filed. Moses did as the word of commanded him and stretched out his hand and embraced his rod toward heaven; and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and fire darted to the ground and there was hail on the land of Egypt, (v.23), but the wheat and the spelt survived the plague. “24So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
 25And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.  26Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.  27And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.  28Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer (Exodus 9:24-28).”


So Moses did as Pharoah had commanded, and as soon as he left the city and spreaded out his hands to the LORD the hail would stop, when he would leave the city. He also knew that the servants of Pharoah would not fear the LORD God, and that his magicians were not the Lord of the earth and could only make a curse worst, they had no ability to heal; which is the gospel. After the LORD stopped the rain, the hail, and the thunder then Pharoah sinned again; and he hardened his heart and so did his servants because they wanted the sons of God to serve them, as if they were a god or lord of Lords. But the Egyptians did not have a word to heal their land or the earth.

 

Maybe today you are in physical slavery and bondage or a slave to sin. You might be in bondage to sickness, disease, famine, poverty, desolation, destruction, war, and anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, the sword. The enemy is not your friend. He will slay you with a physical sword. The word of God says, 17Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. (Ephesians 6:17-18)

EXODUS NINE (King James Version)
  
EXODUS 9:1-7 – The fifth plague: Livestock diseased
EXODUS 9:8-12 – The sixth plague: Boils
EXODUS 9:13-35– The seventh Plague of Hail. 
 1Then 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.
 2For if thou refuse to let them go, and wilt hold them still,
 3Behold, 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.
 4And 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.
 5And the LORD appointed a set time, saying, To morrow the LORD shall do this thing in the land.
 6And 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.
 7And 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.
 8And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh.
 9And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt.
 10And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast.
 11And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians.
 12And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.
 13And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD God of the Hebrews, Let my people go, that they may serve me.
 14For I will at this time send all my plagues upon thine heart, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people; that thou mayest know that there is none like me in all the earth.
 15For now I will stretch out my hand, that I may smite thee and thy people with pestilence; and thou shalt be cut off from the earth.
 16And in very deed for this cause have I raised thee up, for to shew in thee my power; and that my name may be declared throughout all the earth.
 17As yet exaltest thou thyself against my people, that thou wilt not let them go?
 18Behold, to morrow about this time I will cause it to rain a very grievous hail, such as hath not been in Egypt since the foundation thereof even until now.
 19Send therefore now, and gather thy cattle, and all that thou hast in the field; for upon every man and beast which shall be found in the field, and shall not be brought home, the hail shall come down upon them, and they shall die.
 20He that feared the word of the LORD among the servants of Pharaoh made his servants and his cattle flee into the houses:
 21And he that regarded not the word of the LORD left his servants and his cattle in the field.
 22And the LORD said unto Moses, Stretch forth thine hand toward heaven, that there may be hail in all the land of Egypt, upon man, and upon beast, and upon every herb of the field, throughout the land of Egypt.
 23And Moses stretched forth his rod toward heaven: and the LORD sent thunder and hail, and the fire ran along upon the ground; and the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt.
 24So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, very grievous, such as there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation.
 25And the hail smote throughout all the land of Egypt all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail smote every herb of the field, and brake every tree of the field.
 26Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, was there no hail.
 27And Pharaoh sent, and called for Moses and Aaron, and said unto them, I have sinned this time: the LORD is righteous, and I and my people are wicked.
 28Intreat the LORD (for it is enough) that there be no more mighty thunderings and hail; and I will let you go, and ye shall stay no longer.
 29And Moses said unto him, As soon as I am gone out of the city, I will spread abroad my hands unto the LORD; and the thunder shall cease, neither shall there be any more hail; that thou mayest know how that the earth is the LORD’s.
 30But as for thee and thy servants, I know that ye will not yet fear the LORD God. (Exodus 9, King James Version)

Matthew 10th chapter 

 1And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
 2Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother;
 3Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;
 4Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
 5These twelve Jesus sent forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not:
 6But go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel.
 7And as ye go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand.
 8Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. (Matthew 10:1-8, King James Version)

Revelation 6th chapter
 1And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seals, and I heard, as it were the noise of thunder, one of the four beasts saying, Come and see.  2And I saw, and behold a white horse: and he that sat on him had a bow; and a crown was given unto him: and he went forth conquering, and to conquer.  3And when he had opened the second seal, I heard the second beast say, Come and see.  4And there went out another horse that was red: and power was given to him that sat thereon to take peace from the earth, and that they should kill one another: and there was given unto him a great sword.

 5And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say, Come and see. And I beheld, and lo a black horse; and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand.

 6And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say, A measure of wheat for a penny, and three measures of barley for a penny; and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine.

 7And when he had opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth beast say, Come and see.

 8And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him. And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.

 9And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:

 10And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?

 11And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled.

 12And I beheld when he had opened the sixth seal, and, lo, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became black as sackcloth of hair, and the moon became as blood;

 13And the stars of heaven fell unto the earth, even as a fig tree casteth her untimely figs, when she is shaken of a mighty wind.

 14And the heaven departed as a scroll when it is rolled together; and every mountain and island were moved out of their places.

 15And the kings of the earth, and the great men, and the rich men, and the chief captains, and the mighty men, and every bondman, and every free man, hid themselves in the dens and in the rocks of the mountains;

 16And said to the mountains and rocks, Fall on us, and hide us from the face of him that sitteth on the throne, and from the wrath of the Lamb:

 17For the great day of his wrath is come; and who shall be able to stand? (Revelation 6, King James Version)

Revelation 7th chapter
 
 1And after these things I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth, holding the four winds of the earth, that the wind should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree.
 2And I saw another angel ascending from the east, having the seal of the living God: and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea,
 3Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.
 4And I heard the number of them which were sealed: and there were sealed an hundred and forty and four thousand of all the tribes of the children of Israel.
 5Of the tribe of Juda were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Reuben were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Gad were sealed twelve thousand.
 6Of the tribe of Aser were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Nephthalim were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Manasses were sealed twelve thousand.
 7Of the tribe of Simeon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Levi were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Issachar were sealed twelve thousand.
 8Of the tribe of Zabulon were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Joseph were sealed twelve thousand. Of the tribe of Benjamin were sealed twelve thousand.
 9After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands;
 10And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb.
 11And all the angels stood round about the throne, and about the elders and the four beasts, and fell before the throne on their faces, and worshipped God,
 12Saying, Amen: Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
 13And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they?
 14And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
 15Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.
 16They shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more; neither shall the sun light on them, nor any heat.
 17For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. (Revelation 7, King James Version)

Revelation 8th chapter

 1And when he had opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven about the space of half an hour.
 2And I saw the seven angels which stood before God; and to them were given seven trumpets.
 3And another angel came and stood at the altar, having a golden censer; and there was given unto him much incense, that he should offer it with the prayers of all saints upon the golden altar which was before the throne.
 4And the smoke of the incense, which came with the prayers of the saints, ascended up before God out of the angel’s hand.
 5And the angel took the censer, and filled it with fire of the altar, and cast it into the earth: and there were voices, and thunderings, and lightnings, and an earthquake.
 6And the seven angels which had the seven trumpets prepared themselves to sound.
 7The first angel sounded, and there followed hail and fire mingled with blood, and they were cast upon the earth: and the third part of trees was burnt up, and all green grass was burnt up.
 8And the second angel sounded, and as it were a great mountain burning with fire was cast into the sea: and the third part of the sea became blood;
 9And the third part of the creatures which were in the sea, and had life, died; and the third part of the ships were destroyed.
 10And the third angel sounded, and there fell a great star from heaven, burning as it were a lamp, and it fell upon the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters;
 11And the name of the star is called Wormwood: and the third part of the waters became wormwood; and many men died of the waters, because they were made bitter.
 12And the fourth angel sounded, and the third part of the sun was smitten, and the third part of the moon, and the third part of the stars; so as the third part of them was darkened, and the day shone not for a third part of it, and the night likewise.
 13And I beheld, and heard an angel flying through the midst of heaven, saying with a loud voice, Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabiters of the earth by reason of the other voices of the trumpet of the three angels, which are yet to sound! (Revelation 8, King James Version)

Revelation 9th chapter

 1And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit.

 2And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit.

 3And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power.

 4And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men which have not the seal of God in their foreheads.

 5And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when he striketh a man.

 6And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them.

 7And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men.

 8And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions.

 9And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle.

 10And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months.

 11And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon.

 12One woe is past; and, behold, there come two woes more hereafter.

 13And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God,

 14Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates.

 15And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.

 16And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.

 17And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone.

 18By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.

 19For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.

 20And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk:

 21Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts. (Revelation 9, King James Version)


1st Peter 2nd chapter

 11Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain from fleshly lusts, which war against the soul;

 12Having your conversation honest among the Gentiles: that, whereas they speak against you as evildoers, they may by your good works, which they shall behold, glorify God in the day of visitation. (1 Peter 2:11-12, King James Version)

13Then said I, Ah, Lord GOD! behold, the prophets say unto them, Ye shall not see the sword, neither shall ye have famine; but I will give you assured peace in this place.
 14Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.  15Therefore thus saith the LORD concerning the prophets that prophesy in my name, and I sent them not, yet they say, Sword and famine shall not be in this land; By sword and famine shall those prophets be consumed.  16And the people to whom they prophesy shall be cast out in the streets of Jerusalem because of the famine and the sword; and they shall have none to bury them, them, their wives, nor their sons, nor their daughters: for I will pour their wickedness upon them.

 17Therefore thou shalt say this word unto them; Let mine eyes run down with tears night and day, and let them not cease: for the virgin daughter of my people is broken with a great breach, with a very grievous blow.

 18If I go forth into the field, then behold the slain with the sword! and if I enter into the city, then behold them that are sick with famine! yea, both the prophet and the priest go about into a land that they know not.

 19Hast thou utterly rejected Judah? hath thy soul lothed Zion? why hast thou smitten us, and there is no healing for us? we looked for peace, and there is no good; and for the time of healing, and behold trouble!

 20We acknowledge, O LORD, our wickedness, and the iniquity of our fathers: for we have sinned against thee.

 21Do not abhor us, for thy name’s sake, do not disgrace the throne of thy glory: remember, break not thy covenant with us.

 22Are there any among the vanities of the Gentiles that can cause rain? or can the heavens give showers? art not thou he, O LORD our God? therefore we will wait upon thee: for thou hast made all these things.

Matthew 24:3-14 (King James Version)

 3And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world?

 4And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.

 5For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.

 6And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet.

 7For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places.

 8All these are the beginning of sorrows.

 9Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake.

 10And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

 11And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.

 12And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.

 13But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

 14And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.
