Joseph and the Unseen Hand of God
— Teaching —
This is a separate project to the commentaries, it has become apparent that I work on teachings as well, don’t worry, in time both will be posted.
For personal reference, everything I’ll be saying biblically, will be from the NIV & the King James Version.
I feel spiritually led to read out of 1 Corinthians 15:51–58― as this was the first time I felt the Spirit of God as I read it.
Verse 51: Listen, I tell you a mystery: We shall not all sleep, but we will all be changed– in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will all be changed. For the perishable must be cloth itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death is swallowed up in victory.”
“Where, O death, is your victory? Where, O death is your sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
Therefore, my dear brothers, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.
This is the blessed assurance as believers― wherefore we are to comfort one another with these words.
The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob continued into Joseph, as this lineage would ultimately bring about the convent promise of Jesus Christ.
1. When the Lord gave Joseph dreams about his future, they were in no doubt to come to pass. I want you to see this, after his brothers whom he loved deserted him and sold him into slavery, his hair blew wind, there weren’t any clouds in thee air, he no longer wore the robe his father made him-But God was with him!
2. When Potiphar’s wife moved on him― begging him to commit adultery, but in turn―turned it upon him, ―he should have been put to death- even if it were a lie! –But God was with him!
Let me take a moment to acknowledge something, ―when an Egyptian, living and serving under false gods his entire life-can see and recognize that the Lord is with Joseph― that’s something to brag about!
3. Joseph was imprisoned, but while he was, the Lord was with him and gave him success- in everything he did- interpreting dreams; within a day he was serving as Pharaoh’s second-in-command over Egypt.
— Glory to God! —
When the famine came God actually used it to reunite Joseph with his family, and his brothers at this time were changed, for he tested them- they passed… Joseph was able to throw his arms around his father, invite his whole family to Egypt to live in the best of the land at that- and the covenant of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob continued.
When is interesting is while Jesus walked thee earth the Pharisees would question the validity of himself and He would answer, “Can any of you prove me guilty of sin?”
He couldn’t be guilty of sin because he would be the payment of sin, thus the lineage of Joseph and the dreams he had came to flourishion through Christ Jesus.
I am not saying you are going to serve Donald Trump or meet Mr. Obama, what I am saying is the Lord God is with you, thee unseen hand will care for you- no matter the circumstance, He and He alone can meet the need. I can say that with assurance: He healed my mother of cancer when it showed up, when she was diagnosed with M.S. he healed her of that-. The doctor’s may call it schizophrenia but He’s healed me of that as well!
— Praise God! — All Glory to God! —
So I’d like to invite you if you have not received the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal saviour, if you already have I praise God for it! ―I’ll say a prayer for you afterward. If you’d like to receive, say this prayer with me believing…
“Father, we come to you in the name of Jesus― we acknowledge that we are in need of a saviour and that I cannot save myself. Lord God, I believe that you are the Son of the living God, born of a virgin― died on Calvary’s cross- and rose again on the third day. And Lord―, I can now say, I’m changed, I’m a born again, I am a new creation in Christ Jesus.”
Praise God — Glory to God (Claps) — Thank you Jesus
Angel’s right now are rejoicing in Heaven.
For those who are saved and to those who just received, I’d like to pray this prayer as well.
“Dear Jesus, thank you for what you did at Calvary, thank you for being victorious, obtaining the victory over the world, the flesh and the devil. Where now you can say, ‘All power is given unto me in heaven and in thee earth.’ Praise you God, ―we acknowledge you as sovereign, and while the Devil meant it for our harm, you meant it unto our good. Praise you Jesus, please reveal your prescribed order of victory, and we will continue to believe and trust in you. Amen”
— Raise your hand if you prayed with me, ―Praise God, —
In addition to Joseph and his dreams, he only had two in which- one came to pass. The second dream consisted of the sun, the moon and eleven stars bowing to him. This hasn’t happened yet. It is symbolic of the Second Coming, of thee eleven Tribes of Israel accepting Christ as King where imperishable will no longer be perishable and the mortal clothed with immortality, in that coming gad day.
