[b]Exo 7:10[/b] [color=990000]And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded:[/color]The Commands was:[b]Exo 7:2b[/b] [color=990000]speak unto Pharaoh, that he send the children of Israel out of his land.[/color][b]Exo 7:16[/b] [color=990000]And you shall say unto him, The LORD God of the Hebrews has sent me unto you, saying, Let my people go, that they may serve me in the wilderness: and, behold, before you would not hear.[/color]Was God Sincere in His command to Pharaoh?Did God realy want Pharaoh to let His people go?
No taker?Okay:My point in asking this is that some clame God realy didn't want Pharaoh to free God's people, because God heardened Pharaoh's heart.If God hardened Pharaoh's heart, that mean's God realy didnt want Pharaoh to do as He commanded.Why or How did God harden Pharao's heart, if God realy wanted what HE commanded of Pharaoh?We all know that God realy does want what He commands.
The Pharoah knew not the God of Israel; and heneeded slave labour to finish the work of build-ing his kingdom. God wanted to show Pharoah whois truly KING !! Because HE is GOD ; HE coulddemand Pharoah release His people!!
