Wesley's Notes for Exodus 10:19


10:19 An east - wind brought the locusts and now a west - wind carried them off. Whatever point of the compass the wind is in, it is fulfilling God's word, and turns about by his counsel; the wind blows where it listeth for us, but not where it listeth for him; he directeth it under the whole heaven.

    As many times as we've read these chapters; every time is a new and powerful realization of just how great and mighty were these signs! Try to imagine seeing these plagues in real! They are terrifying! Yet because of the way some choose to respond, and "refuse to humble thyself before Me (God);" God hardens their hearts to work out their own foolishness and perversion, unto their destruction.

    Hello Elizabeth A, that is not the correct writing of that Scripture. Ex. 3:10 says, "Come now therefore, and I will send thee unto Pharaoh, that thou mayest bring forth my people the children of Israel out of Egypt KJV. To stress " my people the children of Israel out of Egypt. God bless us all and also in the understanding of his Word. Glory be to Jehovah in the highest through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Amen!
