Exodus: The Worst Hailstorm

 

Tonight we are beginning the third and final cycle of God’s mighty acts of power against Egypt and against Pharaoh and against all the gods of Egypt. As we follow Pharaoh through the plagues, we keep wanting to ask, “Come on, what is it going to take?” What’s it going to take to get through the hard heart of Pharaoh. The blows against Egypt are mounting. This seventh plague account is longer than any of the other narratives, and it signals a significant escalation in intensity of God’s actions against Egypt, yet Pharaoh continues to hold out. What’s going on? Maybe Pharaoh is just an extreme case of a tendency present in all of us. Maybe we are seeing a bit of our stubborn self-will, our tendency to renege on our promises when relief comes, our ability to lie to ourselves. Tonight we look again at the effects of the cosmic battle being played out over the land of Egypt and we see the grace of God in a storm of hail.
