Genesis 41

Joseph’s last words to the only person he thought could help him were, “Get me out of here!” Joseph was in prison for an offense he never committed. After interpreting Pharaoh’s Baker’s dream and telling him he would be released from prison in three days time, Joseph said, “But when all goes well with you, remember me and show me kindness; mention me to Pharaoh and get me out of this prison.” (Genesis 40 v 14). But the next thing we learn about poor Joseph is this: “But when two whole years had passed…” After two whole years Joseph was still in prison. Nobody had remembered him.

In hindsight we look back at the story of Joseph and see just how it had to play out. But rotting away in a stinking jail for years on end would have been no fun at all for Joseph. He must have wondered if even God had forgotten about him.

We might be desperate for something to change: for Mr or Mrs Right to appear; for a family to come along; for the right job to come; for health to improve; or a lifestyle change. It all happens in God’s good time. Two years was just the beginning of the end for Joseph. There had already been years of slavery and captivity before that. Always keep praying. But remember that God will do what he sees as his best for us in His own good time.

May God grant us patience while we wait for Him.

Bible Truth & Prophecy is a remarkable on-line tool for establishing just how far removed from the teachings of the Bible mainstream Christian teaching has become.

End Time Prophecies are interpreted using the Bible, not man made ideas or notions.
Key Biblical subjects such as the Trinity, Devil/Satan worship, Holy Spirit Gifts & much more are all dealt with extensively from the Bible’s viewpoint and not man’s.We will demonstrate how Christian beliefs have become corrupted, and reveal the ‘Truth’ as taught by the 1st Century Apostles.
