MEN OF THE BIBLE (PHARAOH: A HEART IN DENIAL)

untitled1

A shepherd from Midian and his brother stood before Pharaoh and demanded the release of the Hebrew slaves. Pharaoh was the strongman leader of the strongest country in the world. He ignored God’s command to release 600,000 male slaves and their women and children. Despite the demonstration of God’s power-the Nile turned to blood-Pharaoh returned to his palace and put “the whole thing out of his mind” (Exodus 7:23 NLT).

It makes you wonder, doesn’t it? They’ve just been brought through the Red Sea and saved by miracle after miracle, than a month into the wilderness they decide that they want to go back to Egypt. “At least there we had food,” they whined. “Out here we’ll starve to death. ” Never mind the flawed thinking that God would save them from the Egyptians and then starve them in the wilderness.

  1. My son, attend unto my wisdom, and bow thine ear to my understanding:
  2. That thou mayest regard discretion, and that thy lips may keep knowledge.
  3. For the lips of a strange woman drop as a honeycomb, and her mouth is smoother than oil:
  4. But her end is bitter as worm-wood, sharp as a twoedged sword.
  5. Her feet go down to death; her step take hold on hell.
  6. Lest thou shouldest ponder the path of life, her ways are moveable, that thou canst not know them.
  7. Hear me now therefore, O ye children, and depart not from the words of my mouth.
  8. Remove thy way far from her, and come not nigh the door of her house:
  9. Lest thou give thine honour unto others, and thy years unto the cruel:
