When Pharaoh makes this statement now, Moses just comes right back in verse 29 and says: Exodus a "And Moses said, `Thou hast spoken well,...'" (Pharaoh, you have just said a mouthful.I will see your face again no more.) When we get into Chapter 1, God encourages Moses by telling him: Exodus 11:1a "And the LORD said unto Moses, `Yet will I bring one plague more upon Pharaoh, and upon Egypt; afterwards he will let you go...'" And we know that's exactly what happened.I have always tried to take that approach, even if people don't agree with me.

He offers several compromises. The lost person may start getting an appetite, and the Holy Spirit may be wooing him, and bringing him under conviction. "Well, you can get a little religious, but don't get carried away with it.
Many of the things that took place back in Egypt under the plagues will repeat themselves in the Tribulation, only it will be on a worldwide scale.
