Exodus 8:1 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Go to Pharaoh and say to him, 'This is what the LORD says: Let my people go, so that they may worship me." Exodus 9:1 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Go to Pharaoh and say to him, 'This is what the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, says: "Let my people go, so that they may worship me." Exodus 10:1 Then the LORD said to Moses, "Go to Pharaoh, for I have hardened his heart and the hearts of his officials so that I may perform these signs of mine among them."
We see by the verses above that each of these chapters (8,9,10) begin by God telling Moses to "Go to Pharaoh". In each chapter, God sent plagues upon Egypt - frogs, harm to livestock, boils, and hail - in order to convince Pharaoh to release the Israelites from captivity. Despite the harm done to the Egyptian people, Pharaoh was steadfast in his refusal to allow a release. In fact, his heart hardened a little bit more with each plague.
I'm sure Moses, after seeing God's wrath being poured out on the land, could not believe that Pharaoh was not succumbing to this enormous pressure. Regardless of Moses' disbelief, he came back to Pharaoh with the same message - "Let my people go." Even after the ninth plague, Moses didn't form an army of combatants to slay the Egyptians. On the contrary, his message from day one was the same. He didn't waver. He stayed true to the original message. In the end, he won the argument.
It is said that messages that are repetitive win over people. I like to spin this statement a bit by saying, "repetitive messages rooted in God's laws and principles win over people because when you plant the seed, God starts cultivating." Moses allowed God to work. We can clearly see the results.
If you want be a part of a movement, political campaign or some other way to restore Washington, DC., start by acting like Moses: Be steadfast. Be strong. Be convicted. Be peaceful. Be humble. And don't give up. Regardless of the hurdles, Moses never give up. He always returned to Pharaoh with the same message.
- Believe that restoring this nation back to one rooted in individual liberties, begins by speaking the Truth and remaining steadfast in your convictions.
- Act by allowing God to work after speaking the Truth.
- Serve others as an outpouring of what God has done for you.
