Did God actually harden Pharaoh’s heart? Why did the Israelites hearts become hard in the face of all that God was doing for them? Is this still a problem for today? Why is this a problem for God’s people at the end of the age?
Today I want to remind us of the REWARDS that come with this way of life and try to put our current situation and circumstances into perspective.
A follow on from last week’s message
What do we have to look forward to after this life?
Why are we doing what we are doing now?
We are proclaiming that we want to live this way of life forever…and with God
But it won’t be like it is now – but beyond imagination
1 Corinthians 2:9 But as it is written: “EYE HAS NOT SEEN, NOR EAR HEARD, NOR HAVE ENTERED INTO THE HEART OF MAN THE THINGS WHICH GOD HAS PREPARED FOR THOSE WHO LOVE HIM.”
Context of 57-58 (Sins of Israel)
Isaiah 58:1 “Cry aloud, spare not; Lift up your voice like a trumpet; Tell My people their transgression, And the house of Jacob their sins.
Isaiah 59:1 Behold, the LORD’s hand is not shortened, That it cannot save; Nor His ear heavy, That it cannot hear.
Isaiah 59:2 But your iniquities have separated you from your God; And your sins have hidden His face from you, So that He will not hear.
