Day 127 - Revelation 3-5

April 9, 2024 • Revelation 3—5

John continued the message to the seven churches in Asia. These churches were not unlike many churches today that were determined to follow Christ but allowed themselves to drift in direction and focus. The church must protect from the dangers of turning away from God and His purpose for the church. John described his vision of heaven in chapters 4 and 5. John saw a vision of God on His throne, and every creature worshipped Him. Jesus was presented as the One who was sacrificed, but conquered death to free everyone who would trust in Him for eternal life from death and eternal punishment. No one else could do what Jesus did through His sacrifice.

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.
