Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
(Exod.11:1 - 12:20)
“Payday For Lawlessness”
“And the Lord said to Moses, “I will bring one more plague on Pharaoh and on Egypt. Afterward he will let you go from here. When he lets you go, he will surely drive you out of here altogether.”
Breakfast this morning is the clear demonstration of sin’s payday - Death; physical death of the first-born of every human and animal of Egypt.
This final plague was the first promised in Exod.6:1 - and the last of the 10 plagues executed:
“Then the Lord said to Moses, “Now you shall see what I will do to Pharaoh. For with a strong hand he will let them go, and with a strong hand he will drive them out of his land.”
10 is the Biblical number for “completion.” Ten Commandments, and Ten Plagues of judgement; ending with the ultimate judgement for sin.
God’s promise of the judgement of death for lawlessness, to Adam in the Garden of Eden, is still being executed today; physical and spiritual separation from God.(Rom.6:23).
The 9 plagues leading up to this final plague show the loving patience of our Commander. He is slow to wrath and quick to give mercy (Psa.103:8). He measured judgement with each plague’s severity; desiring to bring Pharoah to repentance.
There is also a payday for righteousness; patient endurance through suffering, we will inherit all God’s promises (10:35-39)
Israel is now “getting paid” for all their labor and suffering, from the Egyptians; silver and gold, and great favor (Exod.11:2-3).
Our Payday for Righteousness is everyday! Walking and Living “in His Presence where there is Fullness of Joy and Pleasures Forevermore!” Psa.16:11)
