Day 129 - Read Revelation 9-11

April 11, 2024 • Revelation 9—11

Chapter nine gives an account of the fifth and sixth trumpets being blown and the destruction that followed. John saw an angel with a little scroll open in his hand. John was told to take the scroll. The angel allowed him to take the scroll and told him to eat it. The scroll was sweet to the mouth but bitter to the stomach, as the message of the gospel is sweet to the mouth but results in persecution to the one who receives and shares it. God spoke to John saying He would allow two witnesses to prophesy for 1,260 days, and no one would harm them. The seventh trumpet blew, and the destruction was complete. The time to judge the dead and reward the faithful had come. God again was triumphant and made His power known.

Day 35 - Read Exodus 11

May 28, 2024 • Exodus 11

The people of Egypt recognized God’s work through Moses and Aaron. They gave silver and gold jewelry to the people of Israel, but Pharaoh’s heart was still hardened. He refused to release Israel. God warned of one last plague that would cause Pharaoh to drive Israel from the land of Egypt. The firstborn of all the people and beasts would die, but Israel would not be touched. God told Moses that Pharaoh would not listen to this warning and God’s wonder would be multiplied in the land of Egypt. Moses and Aaron remained faithful to God’s commands, but Pharaoh’s heart remained hardened, and he did not let God’s people go.

Day 34 - Read Exodus 9-10

May 27, 2024 • Exodus 9—10

Pharaoh’s heart continued to be hardened. God plagued the Egyptian livestock and all their livestock died. God plagued Egypt with sores (boils) on man and beast. Then God plagued Egypt with hail. Pharaoh said he would let the people go, but he changed his mind again when God stopped the hail. God plagued the Egyptians with locusts. Pharaoh pretended again that he would let the people go, but he didn’t, so God plagued Egypt with darkness. Pharaoh said they could go, but without their livestock. Moses insisted they be released and take their livestock as well. Pharaoh told Moses to leave and never present himself to Pharaoh again, or Moses would die. Moses stated he would not return to Pharaoh again.

Day 33 - Read Exodus 7-8

May 26, 2024 • Exodus 7—8

Moses and Aaron asked Pharaoh to let all of Israel go to sacrifice to the Lord. Pharaoh refused and ordered his taskmasters not to give the people straw to make bricks. Instead, they would have to continue making brick at the same rate and gather straw for themselves. The people were angry with Moses and Aaron. Moses sought the Lord, and the Lord reassured him that He would bring His people out of Egypt and give them the land that He promised. Moses questioned God again saying the people nor Pharaoh would listen. God sent Moses and Aaron back to Pharaoh and told them to lead His people to the land He promised to give them.
