Any Beyond His Grasp And Grip?

To avoid falling into error, lay hold, keep and maintain a firm grip on the truth
Words In Season:

A creature God cannot tackle, He is yet to create.
   Yoruba Proverb

Bearing:
"And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whosoever it shall fall, it shall grind him to powder"
          Matthew 21:44

Bottomline:
Two events in the land of Egypt have become among templates of principles that govern the universe and direct the affairs of men that dwell on one it's planets.
The first is the law of "season of plenty, and season of famine"
In the season of plenty we should be wise and discreet like Joseph, to save and invest against the days of famine. A subject we will treat far more elaborately in the future.
The second is how God handles and deals with the stiffnecked, even those who obdurately harden themselves against Him despite warnings from Him and entreaties from men. As in the case of that Pharaoh who knew not Joseph.
The more Moses kept telling Pharaoh Neco "let My people go..." the more he hardens himself and the more God plagued him and his land. And the more God kept plaguing him and his people, the more stubborn he gets. And God will not be the first to blink when a man dare stare at Him in the face, eye ball to eyeball! So He kept plaguing Pharaoh until Pharaoh lost his first born and ALL the nobles of Egypt who would have been coming to sign the condolence register at palace, also lost theirs.
Many are like that in this present day.
Going through all sorts of hard times, difficulties and plagues. But the more God kept warning them and men kept entreating  them, the more they adamant as flint. Then the more God increases the volume from minimum to maximum, yet budge they won't. And increase the temperature from 50 to 100 degrees fareheight. Just enough to kill even any stubborn bacteria and viruses!
For these category of men, God final card goes beyond killing their first born or any of their children. But He will get them.
Some would even rather die than budge. Just like Jonah prefered to die and asked to be thrown into the deep sea, than go to Nineveh! To them God will answer; "I won't kill you but make you go through worse things than death. Then prepare something more bigger than them like a fish to swallow them! Jonah now has two choices. Let the belly of fish become his permanent abode or surrender!
And if finally they would still rather prefer to die rather than yield and cease from the evil they set hands into, He makes sure they don't die like an hero,  but die like a dog and be buried like a dog, just like Herod.
And if they still sneered back at God "is that the worst you can do?" God is on ground to show them he is not yet done with them. A place has He prepared for them to wail gnash their teeth in eternal regret. Having dared God that the worst He can do is kill them, should they continue to harden their necks, God ensued that after they die, their troubles has just started. And it's going to be permanent and eternal. So they can realise but too late, that He is indeed "a consuming fire" no one can harden himself against and prosper!
Where do we go from here?
Humble yourself and yield to God now before time runs out and God is left with no choice than
 wield the big stick
If you will not stop hardening yourself against God even if you die, thinking you are being 'brave' the next phase is far far and far worse, hereafter. When the bravest of the brave get there, they will turn to vegetables and water!
So, stop hardening yourself against your Maker today and stop suffering here on earth, where if time runs out on you again, you will be translated to the "next level" in eternity! Surrender today and let Him stop the plague and lift the siege over your life. Come to Jesus today and let Him save and redeem you and reconcile you back to God.
