Why Did God Actually Want To Harden Pharaoh's Heart

What does the scriptures mean in (Exodus 4:21) that "God harden Pharaoh's heart"? Can God or will God harden our hearts today?

In (Exodus 4:21) we read,

21. And the LORD said unto Moses, When thou goest to return into Egypt, see that thou do all those wonders before Pharaoh, which I have put in thine hand: but "I will harden his heart", that he shall not let the people go.

Let's see what God has to say about this matter.

I believe that many people have scratched their heads trying to figure out what this verse means at one time or another in their life. When we are reading and studying God's word. We ask our self would God really harden someones heart? I know there are a times when I would question what this verse really meant. This verse has always made me wonder, when I read it, when I first gave my life to Jesus and just got Saved and received Jesus Christ as my Savior and Lord.

The only way for us to understand what God is showing us here in this scripture is. We have got to understand the meaning of the words used to explain what God spoke back then, in the original text of their day.

See, in the English language the meaning of this verse in (Exodus 4:21) It says that "God harden Pharaoh's heart". But in the Hebrew language, it says that "God will let Pharaoh's heart wax bold or grow hard".

What God is revealing to us here in this verse is that Pharaoh, and it goes for us today? God will give us all our free will to choose, to turn our backs on what God says or to do what we want to do. It is totally left up to us to choose to become greedy and selfish or to help and comfort those who are down on their luck (a better word could have been used here instead of "luck". But you understand what I am trying to say here). We have the free will to do good or evil. Or to believe God or not. God won't and will not make us do anything. God allowed us the free will to choose between right or wrong.

So, God did not force Pharaoh to let His people go, God could have but He didn't, it was up to Pharaoh to make up his mind, and Pharaoh would not do it. So, each time Pharaoh rebelled against God, Pharaoh's heart was becoming harder and harder each time. So, if we want to live our life as we choose. God will not stop us from doing it. So, we are the ones who choose to harden our hearts towards God, each time we keep rejecting His warnings of the dangers of living sinfully.

See, from Adam and Eve and even to this day and time. God has always wished that people would do what is right. But, no one cares these days about what God has to say, they always want to do things their own way. So God says OK, do things the hard way. He says to us you are in control of your future and destiny to spend eternity in Heaven or Hell, do as you want. So, God will not force His will on anyone who lives on the face of the earth. So, He allows us all to harden our own hearts toward Him. Just the way Pharaoh did. Pharaoh chose to do things his way. And so do people today.

God will not force Himself up on us to make us choose to do things against our free will, to choose between good and evil. When someone sins, it opens up a window for Satan to keep coming back and attacking them over and over. Until that person repents of their sins and receives Jesus Christ as their Savior and Lord. Then Jesus will close and lock and secure that window. So Satan can not enter that window again.

How You Can Know If A Person Has A Harden Heart Today?

The real evidence of a person who has harden their heart towards God is. They will always bring to light the sins of everyone else around them. To their friends and family. But at the same time, they will always blame their sinning on others. They will always blame others for what has happened in their life. Instead of taking the responsibly for their own decisions. And they know good and well, that no one can make them sin, they love to sin. That is why they stay there.

So they blame others so they can continue to do their sin(s). Hoping that people around them will feel sorry for them. And they will get a pat on the back from others saying, we understand? And it's OK for you keep on doing the sin that you love so much. That is the sign to look for, in anyone who has a "Very Hard Heart".

What Translation Of The Bible Is The Best?

People ask which Bible is the real translation of God's word? I say this, I thank God that He has allowed so many translations to have been written of the Bible. Why do I think this way?

OK, the reason I say this is, because it makes us all study Gods word for our self. Rightly dividing the word of God. God did not want us to have everything done for us. We all should prayerfully study and read God's word on a regular basis.

The Heavens Declares Gods Glory (Psalms 19:1-4)

“The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they display knowledge. There is no speech or language where their voice is not heard. Their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world.”

The Great Deception - Sweeping The World Today

The greatest deception taking place today is coming into our living rooms 24 hours a day. I know you have seen it too.

The false prophets of today selling the blessings of God and getting rich using the name of Jesus. These false prophets knows how to make you give your hard earned money, by using your emotions. To make you feel as though you need to plant a seed, so you can receive a harvest. But is that what the Bible really teaches?

These wolves in sheep's clothing, knows how to twist the scriptures to make people believe that is what God is telling them to do. And the people do it without verifying what these false ministers are saying with the scriptures. These false teachers knows what to say to keep these people tuning in weekly on the TV, so they can continue to drain their followers bank accounts. They tickle their audience ears with receiving wealth using the method of non judgment teachings instead of confessing their sins to God.

See, the message of punishment for not repenting of their sins, will not bring in money. But teaching people how to get rich by giving money will.

What they are really teaching and offering their audience is things that will only parish. Not things that will last for eternity. Nothing about confessing their sins and getting right before God. That is the great deception. They teach wealth instead of giving an alter call. This is known as the "Seeker Friendly" approach to bring in more followers so they can make even more money.

And people are running to these meetings in droves world wide. Jesus did say this would happen in the last days in Matthew 7: 13,14. He said, wide is the path that leads to destruction and many would find it. But only a few will find the narrow path that leads to heaven.

So the job of these false teachers is to blind their followers with the love of money and avoid the penalty of not repenting of their sins. They just use enough of the name of Jesus in their messages to deceive the people to make them think, what they are teaching is from the word of God. By twisting scriptures. That way they can keep the cash flow coming in, and the more people they deceive, the more money they will make.

It is so wrong that these ministers who almost beg for our money, to build million dollar mega church buildings. Instead of feeding the poor people and the homeless people, that are even in their own neighbor hoods. This is so wrong, do you really believe they care about our souls? That money they spend to build mega church buildings could have clothed and fed 1000's of people. We need to pray for these ministers to be delivered from the spirit of greed. And start taking care of the poor people. That is what Jesus would do and told us all to do.

Jesus was tempted by Satan. Satan offered Jesus all the riches of this world and Jesus seen right through Satan's lies, and refused Satan's temptation. And I wounder why Jesus' followers today don't do the same? I truly believe that if a neighbor or a friend who are struggling to buy food or pay their bills, is were we should tithe. Instead of giving to these greedy ministers. That I believe is what Jesus would do. I just can't see Jesus giving money to the prosperity teachers of His days, the Pharisees. Do you? Jesus would help the needy.

Follow the teachings of Jesus and not the teachings of men will save you from a lot of heart aches later. OK.

I don't want your money at all, I just want you to see the truth. And I pray that you won't fall into temptation and to run into the shadows of this world's system and gimmicks. And don't let these false teachers of today, take your hard earn money. By selling you a blessing from God. So they can fatten their wallets. It is just like Jesus said it would be in the last days.

Jesus Loves You.

The Old And New Testament

The way the Bible was written. It reveals a truth that had to be inspired by God Himself.

The Old Testament points to the New Testament. And the New Testament points to the Old Testament. They both verify each other.

The Bible points to one person. The greatest person to ever walk on the face of the earth. And that person is Jesus Christ.

The Bible also tells the story of the greatest rescue mission that was ever pulled off with great success.

In Zechariah 12:2,3 we read,

2 Behold, I will make Jerusalem a cup of trembling unto all the people round about, when they shall be in seige both against Judah and against Jerusalem.

3 And in that day I will make Jerusalem a burdensome stone for all people: all that burden themselves with it shall be cut in pieces, though all the people of the earth be gathered together against it.

This Prophecy is taking place before our eyes today. When all nations will have their eyes on Gods city Jerusalem.

Did you know that this city has been destroyed 28 times in the past, and it still stands to this day? This is Gods land and He will defend it at all cost. Who can fight God and win? No one. Period. Did you know that this Prophecy can take place at any time? It is so close to being full filled. God will keep His word. Jerusalem will come out as Gods City of Glory. After God defeats all who comes against it to do harm to it.

I love this land. It is so beautiful. This city Jerusalem will one day in the near future become the capital of the world.

This is the city were Jesus pulled off the greatest rescue mission ever recorded in history. And it was so successful in every detail. And this was also the city that Satan lost the keys of death. He took the keys of death from Adam when he fell into sin when he ate the fruit. And now because Jesus rose from the dead. Jesus over came death and took the keys of death back from Satan.

Now Satan is very angry and trying to deceive as many people as he can, before he is cast into the lake of fire.
