    'Praise God for His unspeakable gift' - (2 Corinthians 9:15) 'And also that every man should eat and drink, and enjoy the good of all his labour, it is the gift of God.' (Eccl.3:13) 'Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.' (Eccl.5:19) 'Jesus answered and said unto her, "If thou knewest the gift of God, and Who it is that saith to thee, 'Give me to drink'; thou wouldest have asked of Him, and He would have given thee living water."' (John 4:10) 'For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.' (Rom. 6:23) 'For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:' (Eph. 2:8) 'Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.' (2 Tim. 1:6) Praise God!
  3. 'And the seven years of plenteousness, that was in the land of Egypt, were ended. .. And the seven years of dearth began to come, according as Joseph had said: .... and the dearth was in all lands; but in all the land of Egypt there was bread. ...... And when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread: ........ and Pharaoh said unto all the Egyptians, "Go unto Joseph; what he saith to you, do." .......... And the famine was over all the face of the earth: ............ And Joseph opened all the storehouses, and sold unto the Egyptians; .............. and the famine waxed sore in the land of Egypt. ................ And all countries came into Egypt to Joseph for to buy corn; because that the famine was so sore in all lands.' (Gen 41:53-57) Praise God! - A mighty God and a Saviour.
  4. 'And the thing was good in the eyes of Pharaoh, .. and in the eyes of all his servants. .... And Pharaoh said unto his servants, ...... "Can we find such a one as this is, ........ a man in whom the Spirit of God is?" And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, .. "Forasmuch as God hath shewed thee all this, .... there is none so discreet and wise as thou art: ...... Thou shalt be over my house, ........ and according unto thy word shall all my people be ruled: .......... only in the throne will I be greater than thou." And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, .. "See, I have set thee over all the land of Egypt." And Pharaoh took off his ring from his hand, .. and put it upon Joseph's hand, .... and arrayed him in vestures of fine linen, ...... and put a gold chain about his neck; ........ And he made him to ride in the second chariot which he had; .......... and they cried before him, "Bow the knee": ............ and he made him ruler over all the land of Egypt. And Pharaoh said unto Joseph, .. "I am Pharaoh, and without thee .... shall no man lift up his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.' And Pharaoh called Joseph's name Zaphnathpaaneah; .. and he gave him to wife Asenath .... the daughter of Potipherah priest of On. And Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt. .. And Joseph was thirty years old .... when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. ...... Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, ........ and went throughout all the land of Egypt.' (Gen 41:37-46) Praise God! 'And Jesus Himself began to be about thirty years of age,' (Luk 3:23) * Zaphnathpaaneah: Jerome says this name signified in Egyptian, Savatorem mundi, "the Saviour of the world;" The 'world' to Pharoah, being Egypt, of which Joseph could clearly have been considered it's Saviour in that day.

And in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of bakemeats for Pharaoh; ........ and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon my head." And Joseph answered and said, .. "This is the interpretation thereof: .... The three baskets are three days: ...... Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, ........ and shall hang thee on a tree; .......... and the birds shall eat thy flesh from off thee." And it came to pass the third day, .. which was Pharaoh's birthday, .... that he made a feast unto all his servants: ...... and he lifted up the head of the chief butler ........ and of the chief baker among his servants. And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; .. and he gave the cup into Pharaoh's hand: .... But he hanged the chief baker: ...... as Joseph had interpreted to them. ........ Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him.' (Genesis 40:16-23) Praise God! Everything will be accomplished in His time and in His way.
  6. 'And Joseph said unto him, .. "This is the interpretation of it: .... The three branches are three days: ...... Yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thine head, ........ and restore thee unto thy place: .......... and thou shalt deliver Pharaoh's cup into his hand, ............ after the former manner when thou wast his butler. But think on me when it shall be well with thee, .. and shew kindness, I pray thee, unto me, .... and make mention of me unto Pharaoh, ...... and bring me out of this house: ........

  7. 'And it came to pass, .. when his master heard the words of his wife, .... which she spake unto him, saying, After this manner did thy servant to me; .. that his wrath was kindled.

  9. 'And it came to pass, .. as she spake to Joseph day by day, .... that he hearkened not unto her, ...... to lie by her, ........ or to be with her. And it came to pass about this time, .. that Joseph went into the house to do his business; .... and there was none of the men of the house there within.

  12. 'And it came to pass about three months after, .. that it was told Judah, saying, .... "Tamar thy daughter in law hath played the harlot; ...... and also, behold, she is with child by whoredom." And Judah said, "Bring her forth, and let her be burnt." .. When she was brought forth, .... she sent to her father in law, saying, ...... "By the man, whose these are, am I with child:" ........ and she said, "Discern, I pray thee, whose are these, .......... the signet, and bracelets, and staff." And Judah acknowledged them, and said, .. "She hath been more righteous than I; .... because that I gave her not to Shelah my son." And he knew her again no more.' (Genesis 38:24-26) Praise God!
  13. 'And Judah sent the kid by the hand of his friend the Adullamite, .. to receive his pledge from the woman's hand: .... but he found her not. Then he asked the men of that place, saying, ..

And Judah said, "Let her take it to her, lest we be shamed: .. behold, I sent this kid, and thou hast not found her." (Genesis 38:20-23) Praise God!
  14. 'When Judah saw her, .. he thought her to be an harlot; .... because she had covered her face. And he turned unto her by the way, and said, .. "Go to, I pray thee, let me come in unto thee; " .... (for he knew not that she was his daughter in law.) And she said, .. "What wilt thou give me, that thou mayest come in unto me?" And he said, .. "I will send thee a kid from the flock. " And she said, .. "Wilt thou give me a pledge, till thou send it?" And he said, .. "What pledge shall I give thee?" And she said, ..

Shall I .... and thy mother ...... and thy brethren ........ indeed come to bow down ourselves .......... to thee to the earth? (Genesis 37:9-10) * Jacob's interpretation of Joseph's dream:- - The Sun = Jacob - The Moon = Rebecca - The eleven stars = Joseph's brethren * Please compare and consider Revelation 12:1, in relation to this, the twelth star being Joseph himself - Israel as a nation in embryo expressed symbolically as the sun, moon and stars -which identifies the woman of Rev. 12:1:- And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: (Rev 12:1) Thank you.
  18. ''And when they saw him afar off, .. even before he came near unto them, .... they conspired against him to slay him. And they said one to another, .." Behold, this dreamer cometh. ....
