Scripture: Exodus 8:16-18
Exodus 8:16-18 says, “So the Lord said to Moses, ‘Say to Aaron, “Stretch out your rod, and strike the dust of the land, so that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt.”’ And they did so. For Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod and struck the dust of the earth, and it became lice on man and beast. All the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt. Now the magicians so worked with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not. So there were lice on man and beast.” In the third plague, Aaron stretched out the rod and struck the dust. And all the dust of Egypt became lice on man and beast. When the Egyptians tried it, they could not bring forth lice. The Egyptians were only allowed to bring forth the first two plagues. God was making a demonstration for all of Egypt that He alone is God in Heaven and Earth. What was Pharaoh willing to do and how far would he go in refusing the Creator of the Heavens and the Earth? Nobody could believe he could be that hard-hearted and yet he was. Never underestimate the Judicial Christ when it comes to worldly politicians. The only way some of them will relent, is if they are removed from office permanently.
