Afterward Moses and Aaron went to Pharaoh and said, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Let my people go, so that they may hold a festival to me in the wilderness.’”
2 Pharaoh said, “Who is the Lord, that I should obey him and let Israel go? I do not know the Lord and I will not let Israel go.”
Absolutely amazing! After all these years, this question remains. Just like Pharaoh, so many want to be their own ‘g’od, serve a ‘g’od of their own creation, desire a ‘g’od that they can touch and feel, and simply deny the LORD’s existence.
Just as the question has not changed, the response had not changed. I Am the Lord and beside me there is no other.
Isaiah 43:“You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord “and my servant whom I have chosen,so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am He.
Before me no god was formed,
nor will there be one after me.
11 I, even I, am the Lord,
and apart from me there is no savior.
12 I have revealed and saved and proclaimed—
I, and not some foreign god among you.
You are my witnesses,” declares the Lord, “that I am God.
13 Yes, and from ancient daysI am He.
No one can deliver out of my hand.
When I act, who can reverse it?”
Romans 14:11, “It is written:
“‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,
‘every knee will bow before me;
every tongue will acknowledge God.’”
12 So then, each of us will give an account of ourselves to God.”
