GUILTY CONSCIENCES

January 24, 2017

Exodus 9:27

 

Then Pharaoh sent for Moses and Aaron, and said to them, “I have sinned this time; the LORD is the righteous one, and I and my people are the wicked ones.

 

LESSON

 

Pharaoh’s repentance was shallow, even though his words sounded sincere; he acknowledged only his mistake and unfairness, but he did not repent of his blasphemy of Yahweh. Moses

perceived Pharaoh’s true attitude. The king had not yet believed that Yahweh was sovereign. Fearing Him means bowing in submission to Him as sovereign over all the earth.

 

How often have we seen a storm of thunder and lightning? Many men become afraid when they  hear the thunder rolling. Their eyes start to tear and they cry while the rafters of their house is shaking and the very ground beneath their feet is  reeling at the voice of God which is full of majesty! When the sun again shines and the black clouds are withdrawn, sin comes again. How many of the same sort of confessions have we seen in times of trouble? Our churches have been crammed with hearers when these times of trouble have come. It’s time for all of our repentances to be real.

 

Memory Verse: John 8:7

 

A guilty conscience needs to confess. A work of art is a confession.
