    Moses was a prophet because he spoke with God. Today, he is still speaking through prophets in these last days. Moses had a good education in Egypt. Yet he was not eloquent, still our Lord chose him for his purpose of saving Israel. Today is the same, our Lord is choosing the humble people to do his work. Many disregard the calling because they are distracted in the world. They refuse like Egypt.

    Verse 1~Jehovah God had made Moses like a god to Pharaoh in regards to the authority he had. Pharaoh didn't worship Moses, but Moses was over Pharaoh in power.

    "Thou shalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land. And I will harden Pharaoh's heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt." God knows the difference between His servants, His people, and the heathen His enemies. He uses weak to confound the mighty and deliver the oppressed from them.

    End of day 18 in the "Bible in a Year Reading. Had to play catchup having missed yesterday. I love reading and contemplating these chapters that span the life of Moses. When Moses had to flee from Pharaoh he had to leave everything behind unlike today I can only imagine the hostilities that he could have encountered. God protected him and Moses depended upon God to deliver his people.

    Verse 3: Jehovah God is spoken of as making Pharaoh's heart hard here. This refers to God allowing Pharaoh's heart to become hard. He did not for Pharaoh to be hard-hearted.

    God made Moses a god to Pharaoh, little g,the Egyptians worshiped creation and the creature more than the creator see Romans chapter 1. some of their gods which were many was the serpent,and the life giving water of the Nile River they saw both these helpless and hopeless to their defense against the God of Moses and Aaron. Likewise any god we put before God will be helpless in the day of judgment

    God said he made Moses a god unto pharaoh... this is an indication to believers that no matter how big or terrible the mountain or stumbling block that stand before us we should see them as no barrier before us because to God they are powerless and that God has made us a god to them all.
  • A disciple
    The Elect of God, the Faithful in Christ, have now a long time been under subjection to a wicked and perverted world; and the LORD is coming down to deliver us and to judge the world for its evil. The first sign; the rod of Moses turned into a serpent; indicates that God sends the devil to punish the wicked. The waters are then turned to blood because they have filled the land with innocent blood.

    God is ruler over all. Gods' way will prevail, no matter how hard we try to fight. We have temptations and we sin, but if we repent, we can prevail and live according to how Jehovah wants us to live. NO MATTER WHAT, GOD IS!!!!!!

    Exodus 7:1 "See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh." It does not say that God made Moses one of Pharaoh's gods. Pharaoh's gods were false gods.
  • Elder Tony M. Berry
    Our Apostolic Bible Institute is studying this Exodus Book. Isn't it interesting that that God made Moses one of Pharaoh's gods.
  • Joe miller
    I am sure it broke God's heart he had to so harshly convince the Egyptians of their sin. Right will always be right.

    Although pharaohs sorcerers could turn water into blood the one thing pharaohs sorcerers couldn 't do is to make these curses go away. This is why god is the one true god.

    vs 3 ' And I will harden Pharaoh 's heart and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt ' ......GOD IS IN CONTROL OVER OUR DIFFERENCES ON EARTH ..... HIS PRIME CONCERN IS TO WORSHIP THE LORD JEHORVAH THE ONLY GOD ..
  • Evangelist Chatauna Robinson
    Hello Vedamony Titus Yes, we do have a free will. There are examples of men given a choice to follow God or follow evil. Exodus 32 36 Deuteronomy 30 19 Joshua 24 15 1 King 18 21 Jesus said that you cannot serve two masters, Luke 16 13, in other words make a decision on who you want to serve. You even have a choice whether or not you want to follow Acts 2 38.
  • Jehovah God gave Moses divine power and authority over Pharaoh. Hence, there was no need to be afraid of that king.

    Many people at workplaces mistreat Born again christian as Pharaoh did to the children of Israel. However, Our Mighty God will NEVER FORSAKE his people; they cheat their pay , they segregate payment etc. I find great meaning in this verse. Be Blessed. Amen.

    This verse demonstrates the point that the term God/god can apply to creatures. Trinitarian M.J. Harris says in "Jesus as God, the New Testament Use of Theos in Reference to Jesus" that the terms 'god' or 'gods' apply to the following persons:
    "Human rulers or judges, regarded as divine representatives or as bearers of divine authority and majesty (Exodus 21:6; 22:8 [cf. 1 Sam. 2:25]; Judges 5:8; Psalms 82:1, 6) b. Spiritual or heavenly beings, including God (Genesis 1:27) and angels (Psalms 8:6 [Engl. V. 5] c. Angels (Psalms 97:7 138:1) d. Heathen gods with their images (Exodus 20:23; Jeremiah 16:20) ... both el, [meaning 'god'] and elohim [meaning 'gods'], have extended or 'irregular' applications to angels or to persons who represent on earth divine power, judgment, or majesty." - pages 24, 26.
    GOD is sovereign, sharing HIS GLORY with none. HE can control anything!
  • Baraka
    God is God and shall share His glory with none other.
    5 And the Egyptians shall know that I [am] the LORD, when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.

    In this verse: It shows GOD's JUDGEMENT on those who oppose his WORD, yet he shows HE has all power. HE will bring HIS children out of EGYPT. We being HIS children are in EGYPT, HE will bring us out.
  • Paul
    Jehovah is a mistranslation.
