Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours. And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him. And Joseph dreamed a dream, and he told it his brethren: and they hated him yet the more.
For, behold, we were binding sheaves in the field, and, lo, my sheaf arose, and also stood upright; and, behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf.
And he dreamed yet another dream, and told it his brethren, and said, Behold, I have dreamed a dream more; and, behold, the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me. And he told it to his father, and to his brethren: and his father rebuked him, and said unto him, What is this dream that thou hast dreamed? Shall I and thy mother and thy brethren indeed come to bow down ourselves to thee to the earth? (Gen 37:3-5, 7, 9-10)
GOD, however, was revealing something of His plan to the one whom He would use to deliver His people from the coming drought and famine. He would also use Joseph, though He humbled him for a time in Egypt, to move this family that would become the Nation of Israel to Egypt and allow them to grow in relative peace until the time of the bondage. But even that was part of His plan to deliver His people, not only from the bondage and slavery of Egypt, but also all people from their bondage to sIn through His Son, Jesus Christ.
All Scripture points to Jesus Christ, The Word made flesh, who gave Himself to deliver all from sIn through His finished and perfect work on the Cross of Calvary. But, He didn't stay dead, for once He finished the payment for our sIn, He rose again and is alive forevermore, at the right hand of the Father. That is the Good News that we have to go and tell, and as we go, we minister to the hurting in this world as GOD provides, we disciple one another in love and in His Word, and we proclaim the Gospel of forgiveness and deliverance from sIn that comes from believing in Jesus Christ and trusting Him for Salvation and the new life we have in His Name.
For GOD is not willing that any should perish, but that all would come to repentance and the knowledge of the Truth. Jesus loves you and wants to establish a covenant relationship with you that is real and personal. Surrender to Him on His terms and He will give you a brand new life of discipleship and fellowship with Him that is abundant and everlasting. You must turn away from your sIn and unrighteousness and trust what He has already done for you to pay your sIn debt. Just as provided for Israel as a family and a Nation, He has provided the only way of reconciliation with GOD with forgiveness and Salvation through Jesus Christ, the Son of GOD who is GOD the Son, and is our Life. Turn away from yourself and your sIn and turn to Him alone for eternal Life.
