I read this verse again and my eyes was opened to some facts;
…The magicians could perform (on a small scale) using the power of darkness, everything Moses, using God’s power could perform there (on a much larger scale~ which conquered the small scales..)
Moses (backed by GOD) did the original. The magicians (backed by Lucifer) produced the fake.
Then I remembered Romans 11:29. Hmmm…. Lucifer still has his gifts..
Remember; Satan can change into an angel of light to deceive. 2 Corinth 11:14 (…the gift still at work)
Be careful of the answers you receive when praying “specific” prayers.
GOD WILL GIVE YOU WHAT YOU NEED NOT WHAT YOU LIKE.
[Dying for mankind was “needful” to His only begotten Son, The Son didn’t have to “like” it~ Matt 26:39,42)]
If you’re praying and giving GOD specifications while at it and at the end you’re getting the exact thing you prayed for, be watchful be vigilant……
…..the devil might be performing on a small scale, giving you a “look alike” blessing in order to steal you away from your maker.
The HolySpirit is the only one that can help a believer see through this devil’s tactics and overcome.
Accept Jesus today and receive The HolySpirit indwelling.
