Most people see unbelief as a harmless option, like choosing not to shop at a certain store. They made a personal choice not to shop at that store, and it does not affect them at all. Likewise, they choose not to believe in God, and they choose not to believe in the Bible, and they think it has no affect upon their lives. However, the Pharaoh of the Exodus shows that choosing to reject the God of heaven has serious consequences,

He sent Moses His servant,
And Aaron whom He had chosen.
They performed His signs among them,
And wonders in the land of Ham.
He sent darkness, and made it dark;
And they did not rebel against His word.
He turned their waters into blood,
And killed their fish.
Their land abounded with frogs,
Even in the chambers of their kings.
He spoke, and there came swarms of flies,
And lice in all their territory.
He gave them hail for rain,
And flaming fire in their land.
He struck their vines also, and their fig trees,
And splintered the trees of their territory.
He spoke, and locusts came,
Young locusts without number,
And ate up all the vegetation in their land,
And devoured the fruit of their ground.
He also destroyed all the firstborn in their land,
The first of all their strength.
(Psalm 105.26–36) 

You know of the 10 plagues on Egypt. Why did they happen? They happened because Pharaoh refused to submit to the Lord God of Israel, and refused to believe in all that Moses and Aaron said by the mouth of God.

Questions:

  • Do you know the difference a sincere seeker of the truth and one who rejects it in spite of the evidence?
