Plagued By Lordship

You may wonder why lordship is so important.  Consider what the Lord Jesus asks, "Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say? (Luke 6:46); and insists, "Not everyone who says to me, 'Lord, Lord,' will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.  (Matt 7:21).


Paul recognized that Jesus is Lord and said this,  Philippians 2:9-11 “Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.”

Lordship is obedience – plain and simple! “…Blessed are those who hear the word of God and obey it”. Luke 11:28


“But be doers of the word and not hearers only deceiving your own selves!” James 1:22  This is lordship. Lordship is obedience to the word of God in all areas of your life.


S.M. Zwemer makes a sobering statement about the lordship of Jesus Christ:

“Unless Jesus is Lord of all, He is not Lord at all.”  

This is a challenge to all Christians to bring every area of our lives under the sovereign rule of His lordship.  A knowledge of His supremacy is insufficient response - jailed prisoners acknowledge the conquering king’s supremacy but do not recognize him as lord.  This can not be our response.  We must live not only as loyal subjects but as princes and princesses living in the palace of the King of kings!

Why did God perform the Ten Plagues?

The plagues are sent from the God of Israel, as a proof that the "one true God" was far greater than all of the multiple Gods of the Egyptians.

Ex 7:5  “And the Egyptians will know that I am the LORD when I stretch out my hand against Egypt and bring the Israelites out of it." 

Ex. 8:10b  “so that you may know there is no one like the LORD our God.”

Ex. 10:2 “tell your children and grandchildren how I dealt harshly with the Egyptians and how I performed my signs among them, and that you may know that I am the LORD."
