Locusts and grace

 

Look at the short vid, then consider what God has said about these little fellas.

God in His infinite grace appealed to the cold heart of man, as Moses said:  ‘Tomorrow will the Lord bring locusts,’ and the next day the blackness of the locusts upon the ground did nothing for the insolence of Pharaoh. The display by the God of nature fell on deaf ears.

-And the locusts went up over all the land of Egypt, and rested in all the coasts of Egypt: very grievous were they; before them there were no such locusts as they, neither after them shall be such–   the word of God

Will there be locusts today? You saw the vid.  Does not the court of Pharaoh come alive with this accounting? Did God’s word skip a beat? Has the narrative of the locusts been diminished in the least?  Will the far kings of today bow to He who made the locust? Maybe, maybe not, but the offer of grace is on the table TODAY.

Did you notice how people in the vid are merely standing by as if they are spectators? Yes, and how many see God’s hand through nature and ignore Him as if frogs, lice, hail, and locusts are meaningless.

It is easier to believe God sent a plaque of locusts to Pharaoh, than it is to believe you will see tomorrow.

Proof? Well, there is always the breath of life given by He who made man, and there is this other thing called the grace of God.

    There was no “insolence” in Pharaoh – according to the Bible, your god himself removed Pharaoh’s free will, forced his bidding onto the poor man, then punished him and all of the first-born among the Egyptians, simply to glorify himself. It’s in the book!

    EDITORS REPROOF: The mockers and unbelievers still put God on trial! In 2015, some things never change. Yeah, ok, as if the Creator can be charged with character flaws. Pharaoh’s perpetual resistance to God’s word cemented his own hardness, as it is today.

    Pharaoh had, and now you have, equal opportunity to see the error of your ways. Because you refuse, you dare to paint God as the monster? Not too smart.

      archaeopteryx1 – I suggest you go to biblegateway.com and look at some other translations. Even though it was a great translation, the old King James version contained some translation errors.

      God did not corrupt Pharaoh. When the pressure was off, Pharaoh just got stubborn again. Instead of accepting the truth, he believed what he wanted to believe.

  3. Ah, powerful ColorStorm. There are interesting happenings in the world, snowstorms in the middle east, locusts, blood moons, but there is that infinite well of Grace and Mercy at work, too.

    That grace…that’s really good. Just like Pharaoh, there are so many who shake their fist and yell at God for the “wrongs” He has committed. It upsets me so much, that I have trouble getting beyond it and forgiving. Good thing it’s not up to me huh? But God, no matter what has been said, or what has been done, will forgive won’t He? No crime too serious except the final, no turning back rejection of His Son, to be forgiven.

      Indeed, people will reject His goodness, then blame God.

      Pharaoh will be judged perfectly, and will come up short, are ya listening ye in the bleachers?

      (btw, I saw your answer about ‘sin’ @ Palmyra 😉 and I was going to say Genesis 1.1 )

      If that is not received, the rest is irrelevant, but you answered, and I see your work was ignored.
