The lesson on November 12, 2017 was part 35 of "The U, V and W of Right Division". Wayne returned from a Truth for Today Bible Conference in Phoenix, Arizona and recaped his two sessions he taught entitled - Election “to be…” OR “not to be…”? You may review the two lessons from the Carolina Bible Group AZ Conference site. Once the review was over, Wayne continued with the lesson and continued to look at how God used hardening to accomplish his purpose. The emphasis is on how God hardened people after they make the free will decision to reject what His message. In the Gospels, He used a hardened Israel to have them crucify His son and during the Acts period to reveal a new calling after Acts 28. The scripture reading was from Exodus 4:18-23 KJV
"18 And Moses went and returned to Jethro his father in law, and said unto him, Let me go, I pray thee, and return unto my brethren which are in Egypt, and see whether they be yet alive. And Jethro said to Moses, Go in peace. 19 And the Lord said unto Moses in Midian, Go, return into Egypt: for all the men are dead which sought thy life. 20 And Moses took his wife and his sons, and set them upon an ass, and he returned to the land of Egypt: and Moses took the rod of God in his hand. 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. 22 And thou shalt say unto Pharaoh, Thus saith the Lord, Israel is my son, even my firstborn: 23 And I say unto thee, Let my son go, that he may serve me: and if thou refuse to let him go, behold, I will slay thy son, even thy firstborn."
