Discussion for Exodus 9

  • I AM
    All the sinners of my people shall die by the sword, which say, The evil shall not overtake nor prevent us. He that led into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killed with the sword must be killed with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints.
  • Dawne
    If you...If only...If Egypt would have found a place of humility their entire nation would have found a place of comfort and peace with God. I wish anyone else who reads including myself a place to soften our hearts so that we may be a yield vessel. Pharaoh lost it all and created great hardship for his own country. May we all find a place of repentance and humility.
  • Irene123
    V.12 - yes, God DID harden Pharaoh's heart. Yes, Pharaoh's heart was hard from the beginning; God hardened it further. The Bible, God's word, not mine, says so.
  • A disciple
    I see an absolute similarity between Pharaoh and his wicked people, and the so-called Liberal Globalists and Islamist Cult of today. They worship and serve the same devil; and they yet exalt themselves against the true people of God! We read in Revelation, as in all the Prophets, that even with all the plagues and punishments that God sends upon the world of the ungodly; yet do they not repent!
