Scripture: Exodus 9:24-28
Exodus 9:24-28 says, “So there was hail, and fire mingled with the hail, so very heavy that there was none like it in all the land of Egypt since it became a nation. And the hail struck throughout the whole land of Egypt, all that was in the field, both man and beast; and the hail struck every herb of the field and broke every tree of the field. Only in the land of Goshen, where the children of Israel were, there was no hail. 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.’” There was no hail in the land of Goshen among the children of Israel and within the boundaries of the Egyptians for those who feared the word of the Lord their livestock and their workers were saved. Now notice what this judgment brought. This judgment brought fleeting repentance to Pharaoh himself. Verse 27 says, “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.’” Now that is a major step in the right direction. Pharaoh goes on to say, entreat the Lord that there may be no more mighty thunderings and hail for it is too much. The Net Bible translates verse 28, “Pray to the LORD, for the mighty thunderings and hail are too much! I will release you and you will stay no longer.” Where is the God who is too much against our enemies? Moses walked with Him! David did! Why haven’t we? It is Bible, it is scripture and it is Word! Is it possible we have been paying the price in our circumstances while the wicked fill the cup of iniquity so the written prophetic judgments may be initiated? Every believer who experiences lack while the wicked hoard can be praying in the Spirit and calling forth God’s perfect storm of judicial intervention that separates the wicked from their wealth. What if God’s intervention in the last election was a judgment on the establishment of both political parties to initiate such a promised transfer?
