DAY 9 – AARON’S ROD SWALLOWED UP THEIR RODS
Bible Text: Exodus 7:8-12Series: 21 DAYS FAST AND PRAY 2019 | INTRODUCTION:
We are in the very last days that were predicted by our Lord Jesus Christ when a lot of things will be manifesting in order to deceive the very elect. Among these are the operation of the false prophets (the magicians/sorcerers), false teachers and agents of Satan in the house of God.
In our text, we saw how Aaron cast his rod as was commanded by the Lord and it became a serpent, the magicians of Pharaoh were called and they cast theirs and brought serpents also; but Aaron’s rod swallowed theirs to prove the superiority of God’s power.
In our own time, there are a lot of magicians Jannes and Jambres that needs to be disgraced as we wield the rod of God’s word to silence every falsehood else many brethren will be swerved away. Although miracles can help us believe, it is dangerous to rely solely on them, Satan can imitate some parts of God’s work and lead people astray. We can avoid this error by letting the word of God be the basis of our faith.
