This doesn't refer to the freedom to doubt but to the doubt that we are free. It is the doubt that questions if we can be free. Have you been so drenched in slavery to the world and captive to the ways of the world that all your thoughts, actions and inactions are tailored to … Continue reading Doubting Freedom
Think of GOD working in you, keeping the gaps wider between you and those who are not ordained for you, between you and those who plunge you deeper into your worst state with GOD. Spaces.

This is also why GOD is eager to get Israel free because no child of GOD is slave to man, men or the wits and ways of men. In this regard, GOD gives Pharaoh another answer of faith. Separation.
So for Pharaoh, it was GOD's way of stretching his doubt to its limits; how far could his query of GOD go? However, Pharaoh did believe. In the moment of torment, in the evidence that these things were by the hand of GOD, Pharaoh believed.
Whether, we can analyse the reason why HE does what HE does, it is certain that GOD is in the business of stunning us with the impossible to do what is made possible only by HIM.
The plagues upon Egypt were GOD's way of letting Pharaoh know that there was more that he did not know and more than he did know.
Because Pharaoh did not know the LORD, when the LORD said, “let there be…” he said, “why should there be?” all those who question GOD to put off the flame speaking to them do not know the LORD. Then again, they do not want to know the Lord. If so, they wish, by influence the enemy of their souls, to perish from lack of knowledge.
