Scripture: Exodus 9:27-29
Verses 27-29 states, “And Pharaoh sent and called for Moses and Aaron, and said to them, ‘I have sinned this time. The Lord is righteous, and my people and I are wicked. Entreat the Lord, that there may be no more mighty thundering and hail, for it is enough. I will let you go, and you shall stay no longer.’ So Moses said to him, ‘As soon as I have gone out of the city, I will spread out my hands to the Lord; the thunder will cease, and there will be no more hail, that you may know that the earth is the Lord’s.’” The stunning courage of Moses appeared in this statement. Moses said, “As soon as I have gone out of the city, I will spread out my hands to the Lord; the thunder will cease, and there will be no more hail, that you may know that the earth is the Lord’s.” Moses was not afraid to walk out in the hail – God was with him. Moses knew that if he lifted his hands to heaven and asked God to stop the hail, God would stop it! God was destroying Pharaoh’s nation, but saving Moses’. That is the God we serve! Do we know Him judicially? If we know Him judicially, we get a harvest! If we stand in the gap for our nation, our harvest field is the nation we are standing in the gap for. Moses was taking God’s people safely out. No hail fell in Goshen, but hail was everywhere else in Egypt. When we get to know Jesus the Judge, we are ready to fulfill what Jesus promised in Matthew 24. This gospel of the Kingdom will be preached for a witness in every nation. And guess who the witness is? It is the church who knows this Jesus. Are we ready to be a witness? The greatest season of the church is ahead because, most likely, we will get to witness the most antichrist people on the planet. It is time we get to know the Judicial Christ, because in knowing Him we will be prepared to walk with Him and finish the age.
