Read: Exodus 7-9
Marked: Exodus 7:10-11, So Moses and Aaron went in to Pharaoh, and they did so, just as the LORD commanded. And Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh and before his servants, and it became a serpent. But Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers; so the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.
Moses and Aaron do what God instructed and perform the signs He gave Moses to do. But the magicians, the practitioners of lies, did the same.
Jesus warns in John 8:44 that another power is at work in the world which lies behind all things counterfeit. This is Satan whom Paul says presents himself as an angel of light, but his works and the works of his ministers are counterfeit.
Never think that because the sorcerers we’re able to to do what Moses did that God’s signs are of no merit. Truth will always prevail. Learn to recognize the false and the counterfeit by knowing the truth. Truth will always set you free.
