The most important Man who ever lived, wasn’t actually a Man at all, but a God, one of a triune Godhead who emptied himself of What? Phil. 2:
Christ’s Humiliation and Exaltation (READ These verses several times carefully )
5 Think this in[f] yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus,
6 who, existing in the form of God, did not consider being equal with God something to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself (Of His privileges) He was born King of the Jew’s by[g] taking the form of a slave, by[h] becoming in the likeness of people. And being found in appearance like a man, 8 he humbled himself by[i] becoming obedient to the point of death, that is, death on a cross. 9 Therefore also God exalted him and graciously granted him the name above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven and of those on earth and of those under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. What where all these angelic beings doing before Jesus was turned into a man? Would they not be bowing and confessing his Godliness ? S Does verse 10 then make any sense when considering that Jesus always existed and took a leave of absence died twice and was raised not as the equal God of past times but the lower ranking title of Son of the one God and father of all!
Below the Shining light Author worships and promotes the created as the creator with no regard for the sovereignty of the One God and father of All of the bible! Deut. 13:4 You Shall (A Command) walk after the Lord(Adonia always the father) your God and fear THEM and Keep Their Commandments obey Their voices and you shall serve Them and hold fast to Them! Is this really what you believe? It’s interesting that the father has a voice which means he speaks with his own words out of his mouth. Ps.33:6-9 (The bible interpreting the bible’s definition of words) This seems awkward if Jesus was his word! Was he somehow inside the fathers vocal cords? It gets pretty complicated for me!
Brethren we are admonished to be like Christ and not consider being equal with the father something to grasp at! Unless you want to fall in the footsteps of Lucifer and Adam!
Exodus 7 Shining Light blog
( Notice how the second God of the trinity was busy at work, He’s actually pretty amazing, he does everything, no need for a 1rst, or a 3rd God, the second God does it all…
An important thing to observe is that Moses and Aaron did not decide for themselves what to say to Pharaoh or to do in Egypt. Instead they said what God had told them to say and proclaimed the plagues that God had commanded them that God would bring. This was not about Moses, but was about revealing God and his power to BOTH Israel and Egypt.
Today the church of God has strayed from learning and keeping the whole word of God; to idolizing human leaders. We need to be faithful and obedient to God as Moses and Aaron were, not speaking our own words nor doing what we think is right.
Those who are two prophet wannabe’s also need to understand that office is not about any power or reputation of men; but that this is about responsibility to proclaim the word of God and to do as God tells them, just like Moses and Aaron did.
Let us also realize that the Egyptians and nearly all of humanity are driven to worship something, and being blind to God they are driven to worship his creation, it is the same in the world today. When Christ brought these plagues on Egypt he was turning their own gods [the creation] against the Egyptians. It has been thus since Adam, and now in these last days this madness of worshipping the creation in place of the Creator has reached its zenith.
Romans 1:21 Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. 22 Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, 23 And changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and four-footed beasts, and creeping things.
24 Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves: 25 Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
Christ promised to make Pharaoh fear and regard Moses as if he were a god, so that Pharaoh will hear Moses and Aaron, and will not dare to kill Moses or cast him into prison.
Exodus 7:1 And the LORD said unto Moses, See, I have made thee a god to Pharaoh: and Aaron thy brother shall be thy prophet. 7:2 Thou shalt speak all that I command thee: and Aaron thy brother shall speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land.
Christ explains that Pharaoh will not let the people go until he YHVH has made his power and glory known. In the same way at this end time, the power and glory of Messiah will be made known by God’s two prophets and all of the mighty works of Christ at his coming.
As Christ delivered his called out bride from bondage to sin with many mighty deeds in physical Egypt; He will also deliver his spiritual Bride from bondage to sin, and raised up his faithful chosen to be a part of his collective spiritual Bride in that day.
Christ hardened Pharaoh’s heart to the level of hardness of the “heart” of Satan, that the allegory of Pharaoh being a type of Satan might be fulfilled more clearly.
7:3 And I will harden Pharaoh’s heart, and multiply my signs and my wonders in the land of Egypt. 7:4 But Pharaoh shall not hearken unto you, that I may lay my hand upon Egypt, and bring forth mine armies, and my people the children of Israel, out of the land of Egypt by great judgments.
As the Egyptians were made to fear God in ancient times; the spiritually Called Out will be made to fear, respect and to really know God and his deliverance from the bondage of sin in our time; and at this end time, all of the world will be made to know God at the coming of Messiah the Christ.
7:5 And the Egyptians shall know that I am the LORD, when I stretch forth mine hand upon Egypt, and bring out the children of Israel from among them.
Moses and Aaron now knew the purpose of God and the reason for the actions of Christ in hardening Pharaoh’s heart, and the mighty miracles that Messiah would perform for Israel.
We of spiritual Israel should also begin to understand the reason for trials and afflictions in our lives; which is to bring us to the perfection of our Father!
7:6 And Moses and Aaron did as the LORD commanded them, so did they. 7:7 And Moses was fourscore  years old, and Aaron fourscore and three  years old, when they spake unto Pharaoh.
Christ commands Moses and Aaron to visit Pharaoh and to show him the first miracle that was shown to the elders of Israel.
7:8 And the LORD spake unto Moses and unto Aaron, saying, 7:9 When Pharaoh shall speak unto you, saying, Shew a miracle for you: then thou shalt say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and cast it before Pharaoh, and it shall become a serpent.
The wise men of Egypt duplicated this miracle by the power of Satan. Here we have a short duel between the miracle workers of Egypt and the servants of God, perhaps like the latter day miracles of the abomination and God’s two servants.
7:10 And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. 7:11 Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments. 7:12 For they cast down every man his rod, and they became serpents: but Aaron’s rod swallowed up their rods. 7:13 And he hardened Pharaoh’s heart, that he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.
Pharaoh saw the miracles of his own people and maybe thought that the God of Moses and Aaron was not greater than the gods of Egypt.
7:14 And the LORD said unto Moses, Pharaoh’s heart is hardened, he refuseth to let the people go.
Then Christ sent Moses and Aaron to meet Pharaoh at the river side to turn the water into blood; which showed forth the power of God, but the magicians of Egypt were again able to replicate the miracle.
7:15 Get thee unto Pharaoh in the morning; lo, he goeth out unto the water; and thou shalt stand by the river’s brink against he come; and the rod which was turned to a serpent shalt thou take in thine hand.
Moses and Aaron are then told by Christ what to speak unto Pharaoh.
7:16 And thou shalt say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews hath sent me unto thee, saying, Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, hitherto thou wouldest not hear. 7:17 Thus saith the LORD, In this thou shalt know that I am the LORD: behold, I will smite with the rod that is in mine hand upon the waters which are in the river, and they shall be turned to blood. 7:18 And the fish that is in the river shall die, and the river shall stink; and the Egyptians shall lothe to drink of the water of the river.
After Moses and Aaron had thus addressed the god-king of Egypt; Messiah the Christ, commanded them to lift up the rod against the Nile and all its tributaries and streams in the delta.
7:19 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Take thy rod, and stretch out thine hand upon the waters of Egypt, upon their streams, upon their rivers, and upon their ponds, and upon all their pools of water, that they may become blood; and that there may be blood throughout all the land of Egypt, both in vessels of wood, and in vessels of stone.
They obeyed Jesus Christ the spiritual Lamb of God, and all was fulfilled as Messiah had declared.
7:20 And Moses and Aaron did so, as the LORD commanded; and he lifted up the rod, and smote the waters that were in the river, in the sight of Pharaoh, and in the sight of his servants; and all the waters that were in the river were turned to blood. 7:21 And the fish that was in the river died; and the river stank, and the Egyptians could not drink of the water of the river; and there was blood throughout all the land of Egypt.
Then the Egyptian magicians turned pots of well water into blood.
7:22 And the magicians of Egypt did so with their enchantments: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, neither did he hearken unto them; as the LORD had said. 7:23 And Pharaoh turned and went into his house, neither did he set his heart to this also.
The river was as blood for seven days, and the Egyptians dug wells for water.
7:24 And all the Egyptians digged round about the river for water to drink; for they could not drink of the water of the river. 7:25 And seven days were fulfilled, after that the LORD had smitten the river.
After seven days Christ commands Moses and Aaron to go to Pharaoh and ask him to let the people of Israel go; and if he refuses God would bring a curse of frogs across Egypt.
8:1 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Go unto Pharaoh, and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me. 8:2 And if thou refuse to let them go, behold, I will smite all thy borders with frogs: 8:3 And the river shall bring forth frogs abundantly, which shall go up and come into thine house, and into thy bedchamber, and upon thy bed, and into the house of thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thine ovens, and into thy kneadingtroughs: 8:4 And the frogs shall come up both on thee, and upon thy people, and upon all thy servants.
Then Messiah the Christ commanded Moses and Aaron to stretch out the rod and bring the curse of frogs on the nation.
8:5 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt. 8:6 And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt.
The Egyptian magicians then replicated the miracle.
8:7 And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.
Then Pharaoh begged Moses to remove the frogs, and Moses perhaps believing Pharaoh rejoiced.
8:8 Then Pharaoh called for Moses and Aaron, and said, Intreat the LORD, that he may take away the frogs from me, and from my people; and I will let the people go, that they may do sacrifice unto the LORD. 8:9 And Moses said unto Pharaoh, Glory over me: when shall I intreat for thee, and for thy servants, and for thy people, to destroy the frogs from thee and thy houses, that they may remain in the river only? 8:10 And he said, To morrow. And he said, Be it according to thy word: that thou mayest know that there is none like unto the LORD our God. 8:11 And the frogs shall depart from thee, and from thy houses, and from thy servants, and from thy people; they shall remain in the river only.
Moses then asked god to take away the frogs from Egypt and Christ heard and fulfilled the matter.
8:12 And Moses and Aaron went out from Pharaoh: and Moses cried unto the LORD because of the frogs which he had brought against Pharaoh. 8:13 And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and the frogs died out of the houses, out of the villages, and out of the fields.
Christ caused all the frogs to die out, and they were gathered up of the people out of their houses into stinking heaps.
8:14 And they gathered them together upon heaps: and the land stank.
Pharaoh then went back on his word.
8:15 But when Pharaoh saw that there was respite, he hardened his heart, and hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.
Then the one who became Jesus Christ brought up a plague of lice out of the dust of the land.
8:16 And the LORD said unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch out thy rod, and smite the dust of the land, that it may become lice throughout all the land of Egypt. 8:17 And they did so; for Aaron stretched out his hand with his rod, and smote the dust of the earth, and it became lice in man, and in beast; all the dust of the land became lice throughout all the land of Egypt.
The priests and enchanters of Egypt could not replicate this miracle.
8:18 And the magicians did so with their enchantments to bring forth lice, but they could not: so there were lice upon man, and upon beast.
The magicians then openly told Pharaoh that this could not be duplicated because it was of God.
8:19 Then the magicians said unto Pharaoh, This is the finger of God: and Pharaoh’s heart was hardened, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had said.
Messiah our physical and spiritual Deliverer, then commanded Moses to again call on Pharaoh to let his people go; and if he will not, then swarms shall fill the land. The word fly is not in the text but is the conjecture of the translators. The swarms could be mosquitoes or even hornets.
We must be careful not to let the translators mislead us into thinking of the common house fly here. These Egyptian swarms were not a mere nuisance, but were most likely stinging insects or biting flies like the deer, horse and black flies in the North American wilderness and the biting flies of Africa. This was a very real and terrible plague.
8:20 And the LORD said unto Moses, Rise up early in the morning, and stand before Pharaoh; lo, he cometh forth to the water; and say unto him, Thus saith the LORD, Let my people go, that they may serve me. 8:21 Else, if thou wilt not let my people go, behold, I will send swarms of flies upon thee, and upon thy servants, and upon thy people, and into thy houses: and the houses of the Egyptians shall be full of swarms of flies, and also the ground whereon they are.
Christ then separates out Goshen from Egypt in terms of this curse.
8:22 And I will sever in that day the land of Goshen, in which my people dwell, that no swarms of flies shall be there; to the end thou mayest know that I am the LORD in the midst of the earth.
In this end time Christ is dividing his faithful from the lukewarm, so that God may deliver his faithful from the strong correction to come upon the lukewarm.
8:23 And I will put a division between my people and thy people: to morrow shall this sign be.
Then the land of Egypt was overwhelmed by vast swarms of biting stinging flying insects, from which there was no escape. Such swarms have been known to drive animals and men mad in the wilderness, often the only relief being to dive under water or to coat themselves with thick mud. If you have no experience with this, just imagine yourself swarmed thousands of hungry mosquitoes continually, even inside your home.
8:24 And the LORD did so; and there came a grievous swarm of flies into the house of Pharaoh, and into his servants’ houses, and into all the land of Egypt: the land was corrupted by reason of the swarm of flies.
Pharaoh then seeks a compromise and tells Moses to sacrifice within Egypt.
8:25 And Pharaoh called for Moses and for Aaron, and said, Go ye, sacrifice to your God in the land.
Moses rejects this offer of Pharaoh and gives his excuse, which was a failure on Moses part in not saying that they must obey the command of the Eternal.
8:26 And Moses said, It is not meet so to do; for we shall sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians to the LORD our God: lo, shall we sacrifice the abomination of the Egyptians before their eyes, and will they not stone us? 8:27 We will go three days’ journey into the wilderness, and sacrifice to the LORD our God, as he shall command us.
Then Pharaoh gives in.
8:28 And Pharaoh said, I will let you go, that ye may sacrifice to the LORD your God in the wilderness; only ye shall not go very far away: intreat for me.
Moses then agrees to ask Christ to remove the flies but warns Pharaoh not to change his word this time.
8:29 And Moses said, Behold, I go out from thee, and I will intreat the LORD that the swarms of flies may depart from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people, to morrow: but let not Pharaoh deal deceitfully any more in not letting the people go to sacrifice to the LORD.
8:30 And Moses went out from Pharaoh, and intreated the LORD. 8:31 And the LORD did according to the word of Moses; and he removed the swarms of flies from Pharaoh, from his servants, and from his people; there remained not one.
The Pharaoh changed his mind and would not let the people go.
8:32 And Pharaoh hardened his heart at this time also, neither would he let the people go. Is Christ the LORD Your God? I worship the same God that Jesus does, Rev.3:12 He who over comes I will make a pillar in the temple of My God. Therefore Jesus can not be God! But the created Son of God of Luke 1:35 Jesus never had anything to do with talking to Moses or anyone in the old testament he simply didn’t exist yet…
