"Moses spoke unto the children of Israel: but they hearkened not unto Moses for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage..." Exodus 6:9
How many of us have loved ones who have destructive strongholds in their lives, but when we try to lead them out ... they will not listen to us?
If we understand the scriptures, we will not be surprised by this response.
Moses was a man sent by God to lead his suffering people out of cruel bondage. God said he had seen their affliction and heard their cries - so he sent a deliverer.
But when the deliverer came, the people wanted to stone him!
What a frustrating experience this must have been for Moses, so he brought his complaint before the Lord. Moses did his level best to convince the great I Am  that this was a lost cause, but the Lord would have none of it. He was adamant, he would not let Moses off the hook.
The scriptures reveal exactly why the people would not listen to Moses. It is very important for those of us who are called to intercession to understand this, so we will not grow weary in well doing. Exodus 6:9 tells us the people would not listen to Moses for anguish of mind and cruel bondage.
As a drowning person, in their panic, will often fight the one who is trying to rescue them, a person trapped in the cruel bondage of the devil will often vigorously reject the help God sends to them.
Those devils are not going to go quietly. They've held that territory a long time, and their victim can't tell the difference yet between the oppressors voice and their own. The victim will personally feel the oppressor's resistance  - its anger and resentment.
We know that freedom only comes to any of us through Jesus Christ, God's risen son. But don't the scriptures call him the stone that the builders rejected? A rock of offense and a stone of stumbling?
The good news is, both we and our loved ones can benefit from the next set of instructions God gave to Moses concerning the liberation of his anguished people.
God said"speak unto Pharaoh." Moses was instructed to go not only the people who were oppressed but also to the oppressor  and command him to let the people go!
Look at the example given in Genesis
  • Moses was called by God and told to go...
  • He then told the people God would deliver them
  • The people's misery increased 
  • Moses was then told to go to the oppressor and demand release

Are you praying fervently for the deliverance of a friend or loved one? Have you told them Jesus is their only answer? Have you gone to Pharaoh and demanded he release them?

"... and he gave them authority over all devils..."

"...and the seventy returned again with joy saying, Lord even the devils are subject unto us through thy name..."

"...prophesy unto the wind, prophesy son of man..."
