God Punishes Pharaoh

  30 minutes

Pharaoh, the ruler of Egypt, hardened his heart and did not allow the Israelites to leave Egypt as promised earlier. God gave him many opportunities to repent and to stop resisting God’s will. But proud Pharaoh chose to disregard God’s display of power as proven in the various plagues. Ultimately, God took drastic action and sent his angel of death who killed all the first-newborn children and even the first-born cattle of Egypt but not those of the Israelites. When Pharaoh’s son died, he allowed the Israelites to leave Egypt.
No one can stand against God’s will. If mighty Pharaoh with all his power couldn’t, how we can? It is better to humbly submit to the will of God.
