Worship belongs to God alone


Ex. 9:8-12 “And the LORD said unto Moses and unto Aaron, Take to you handfuls of ashes of the furnace, and let Moses sprinkle it toward the heaven in the sight of Pharaoh. And it shall become small dust in all the land of Egypt, and shall be a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast, throughout all the land of Egypt. And they took ashes of the furnace, and stood before Pharaoh; and Moses sprinkled it up toward heaven; and it became a boil breaking forth with blains upon man, and upon beast. And the magicians could not stand before Moses because of the boils; for the boil was upon the magicians, and upon all the Egyptians. And the LORD hardened the heart of Pharaoh, and he hearkened not unto them; as the LORD had spoken unto Moses.”

LESSON - I find it ironic that the sixth plague (The number of man) was a type of coronavirus. Notice that the boils (similar to the Bubonic Plague) affected BOTH man and beasts. I do not believe COVID-19 to be specifically a type of judgment like the plagues of Egypt. I do believe it is a warning to ALL people EVERYWHERE to repent of sin. We also have become very pantheistic and materialistic, offering our worship to everything but God. Here is the warning offered by Moses to the Egyptians in v29b “...that thou mayest know how that the earth is the LORD's.” Worship belongs to our Creator, not the creation!
