Today’s passage: Exodus 11
- Before Moses left Pharaoh’s presence, the Lord uses him to give the final warning of the final plague. The resistance of Pharaoh and the trouble he brought upon his own nation (Whom he was to lead and protect) brought Moses to great anger.
- By the time of the final plague, Moses and the people of Israel had great respect among all the Egyptians.
- In the proclamation of this final plague to Pharaoh, there is no request to let the people go. Pharaoh is simply told what is going to happen, what God is going to do.
Questions to consider:
- What had God promised was going to happen back in 4:22-23? How is God’s providence being displayed in this passage?
- Though some time had passed between the other plagues, when was this final plague going to come? Who had determined that? Did Pharaoh have the option of postponing the judgment of God? Why not?
- Pharaoh’s rejection resulted in God’s “wonders being multiplied in the land of Egypt.” It is often our desire for God’s wonders to be multiplied through repentance and redemption, but how are God’s wonders also displayed through judgment? How will God be glorified by the redemption of the church and how will He also be glorified through the judgment of those who have rejected Him?
