But there is a theology around this. Some people’s purpose in life is to serve God: others are there to be an example of what not to be. Every time, every place, has its Pharaoh, who will not let the people of God alone. In every time there will be opposition.
And in every time the measure that the enemy uses against us will be used against them.
18 Moses went back to Jethro his father-in-law and said to him, “Please let me go back to my brothers in Egypt to see whether they are still alive.” And Jethro said to Moses, “Go in peace.” 19 And the Lord said to Moses in Midian, “Go back to Egypt, for all the men who were seeking your life are dead.” 20 So Moses took his wife and his sons and put them on a donkey, and went back to the land of Egypt. And Moses took the staff of God in his hand.
21 And the Lord said to Moses, “When you go back to Egypt, see that you do before Pharaoh all the miracles that I have put in your power. But I will harden his heart, so that he will not let the people go. 22 Then you shall say to Pharaoh, ‘Thus says the Lord, Israel is my firstborn son, 23 and I say to you, “Let my son go that he may serve me.” If you refuse to let him go, behold, I will kill your firstborn son.’”
There are those who forget that Pharoah was deliberately killing all the male offspring of the Jews so that the nation would be destroyed. Who see the judgements of God as unfair. Genrally, they want to compromise with the world. There are too many like this, who are blinded by the world to the glory which is God, and many call themselves pastors. Freeriker described one so well it deserves to be quoted.
Another example of a Churchian Executive Manager torturing, pretzeling. and perverting Scripture in order to assure themselves that th he can keep both feet firmly planted in th he World while pretending to be doing the work of the Kingdom.
Actually, they’re really just trying extra hard to fool/convince themselves. They don’t really believe in either God or His Power and Authority, because if they did they wouldn’t be so recklessly bastardizing his Word to raise themselves in the World’s esteem.

A deep error. We are all capable of error, but to miss the glory of God and the glory of Christ is to be far more blinded than the ruler of Egypt. For he made all the nations: Moses was is servant, and Aaron the priest, but he is far greater.
3 Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, 2 who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God’s house. 3 For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses—as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honour than the house itself. 4 (For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.) 5 Now Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, to testify to the things that were to be spoken later, 6 but Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.
If we are of Christ, we are of the family and we are not servants. Do not listen to the servant who tells you that righteousness comes from micro-regulation and/or obedience to a woke leader. The main use of the nightly news is to tell you what not to do.
Every word of truth — not the approved narrative, truth — could be the seed for the spirit. Spread truth. Every remnant of beauty, of grace, of the honour we used to share as a people, is also something that came from God and can draw people back to God. Do such: the virtue signal will then appear to the autdience to be noise and barriers preventing a restoration of family, town, city and nation.
And declare the gospel without apology. it is the power for salvation for all nations. As Moses was faithful to God for his nation and in his time, so should we be.
