Exodus 5

Good Morning all. I pray that this day finds you well and blessed. I also pray that this day finds you with more knowledge of God than the day before. I hope that you are learning how we can relate to Israel and their journey. Their journey is not much different than ours. So with that being said let's get into this. 1- AFTERWARD MOSES AND AARON WENT IN AND TOLD PHARAOH, "THUS SAYS THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL: LET MY PEOPLE GO, THAT THEY MAY HOLD A FEAST TO ME IN THE WILDERNESS." 2- AND PHARAOH SAID, "WHO IS THE LORD, THAT I SHOULD OBEY HIS VOICE TO LET ISRAEL GO? I DO NOT KNOW THE LORD, NOR WILL I LET ISRAEL GO." 3- SO THEY SAID, "THE GOD OF THE HEBREWS HAS MET WITH US. PLEASE, LET US GO THREE DAYS JOURNEY INTO THE DESERT AND SACRIFICE TO THE LORD OUR GOD, LEST HE FALL UPON US WITH PESTILENCE OR WITH THE SWORD." 4- THEN THE KING OF EGYPT SAID TO THEM, "MOSES AND AARON, WHY DO YOU TAKE THE PEOPLE FROM THEIR WORK? GET BACK TO YOUR LABOR." 5-AND PHAROAH SAID, "LOOK, THE PEOPLE OF THE LAND ARE MANY NOW AND YOU MAKE THEM REST FROM THEIR LABOR!" 6- SO THE SAME DAY PARAOH COMMANDED THE TASKMASTERS OF THE PEOPLE AND THEIR OFFICERS SAYING, 7- "YOU SHALL NO LONGER GIVE THE PEOPLE STRAW TO MAKE BRICK AS BEFORE. LET THEM GO AND GATHER STRAW FOR THEMSELVES. 8- AND YOU SHALL LAY ON THEM THE QUOTA OF BRICKS WHICH THEY MADE BEFORE. YOU SHALL NOT REDUCE IT. FOR THEY ARE IDLE; THEREFORE, THEY CRY OUT, SAYING, LET US GO AND SACRIFICE TO OUR GOD. 9- LET MORE WORK BE LAID ON THE MEN THAT THEY MA LABOR IN IT, AND LET THEM NOT REGARD FALSE WORDS." 10- AND THE TASKMASTERS OF THE PEOPLE AND THEIR OFFICERS WENT OUT AND SPOKE TO THE PEOPLE SAYING, "THUS SAYS PHARAOH: I WILL NOT GIVE YOU STRAW. 11- GO, GET YOURSELVES STRAW WHERE YOU CAN FIND IT; YET NONE OF YOUR WORK WILL BE REDUCED." 12- SO THE PEOPLE WERE SCATTERED ABROAD THROUGHOUT ALL THE LAND OF EGYPT TO GATHER STUBBLE INSTEAD OF STRAW. 13- AND THE TASKMASTERS FORCED THEM TO HURRY SAYING, "FULFILL YOUR WORK; YOUR DAILY QUOTA, AS WHEN THERE WAS STRAW." 14-ALSO THE OFFICERS OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL, WHOM PHAROAH'S TASKMASTERS HAD SET OVER THEM, WERE BEATEN AND WERE ASKED, "WHY HAVE YOU NOT FULFILLED YOUR TASK IN MAKING BRICK BOTH YESTERDAY AND TODAY, AS BEFORE?" 15- THEN THE OFFICERS OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL CAME AND CRIED OUT TO PHARAOH, SAYING, "WHY ARE YOU DEALING THUS WITH YOUR SERVANTS?" 16- "THERE IS NO STRAW GIVEN TO YOUR SERVANTS, AND THEY SAY TO US, MAKE BRICK! AND INDEED YOUR SERVANTS ARE BEATEN, BUT THE FAULT IS IN YUR OWN PEOPLE." 17- BUT HE SAID, "YOU ARE IDLE! THEREFORE YOU SAY, LET US GO AND SACRIFICE TO THE LORD." 18- THEREFORE GO NOW AND WORK; FOR NO STRAW SHAL BE GIVEN YOU, YET YOU SHALL DELIVER THE QUOTA OF BRICKS." 19- AND THE OFFICERS OF THE CHILDREN OF ISRAEL SAW THAT THEY WERE IN TROUBLE AFTER IT WAS SAID, "YOU SHALL NOT REDUCE ANY BRICKS FROM YOUR DAILY QUOTA." 20- THEN, AS THEY CAME OUT FROM PHAROAH, THEY MET MOSES AND AARON WHO STOOD THEIR TO MEET THEM. 21- AND THEY SAID TO THEM, "LET THE LORD LOOK ON YOU AND JUDGE BECAUSE YOU HAVE MADE US ABHORRENT IN THE SIGHT OF PHARAOH AND IN THE SIGHT OF HIS SERVANTS, TO PUT A SWORD IN THEIR HAND TO KILL US." 22- SO MOSES RETURNED TO THE LORD AND SAID, "LORD WHY HAVE YOU BROUGHT TROUBLE ON THIS PEOPLE? WHY IS IT YOU HAVE SENT ME? 23- FOR SINCE I CAME TO PHARAOH TO SPEAK IN YOUR NAME, HE HAS DONE EVIL TO THIS PEOPLE, NEITHER HAVE YOU DELIVERED YOUR PEOPLE AT ALL." Wow, I can't wait to get into this. There is so much to learn from this. I hope each of you has a blessed day and dust off your swords and prepare.
