Josephs Fathers to Pharaohs

Josephs Fathers to Pharaohs

I feel like it is a prophetic word for this day. I can’t say for sure but I was impressed to release it by alone by myself but also to post it on my blog, being as this is my only “platform.” The word is from Genesis 45:8.

“God is making Josephs, fathers to Pharaohs.”

Genesis 45:8 (NASB)

8 Now, therefore, it was not you who sent me here, but God; and He has made me a father to Pharaoh and lord of all his household and ruler over all the land of Egypt.

What/who is your foundation?

I agree with grace and mercy and calling that forth but judgement does come and the Church is first to feel it. (1 Peter 4:17) I imagine some will mistake it for persecution and not realize the cause and effect of what we do and don’t do. Judgement does not equal condemnation. Judgement basically means a decree. There are good judgements and bad judgements ie. we are judged worthy of God’s love and reconciliation. I think of this also when bad things happen: Proverbs 19:3 and Romans 1 where our own actions discredit us and open the door for the enemy. Judgement is about restoration. I think about how God doesn’t hold the world’s sins against it yet the worlds holds in own sins against them. An unreconciled man will not breed reconciliation. Or I should say a man who doesn’t accept reconciliation will not accept reconciliation with others.

Now look at 1 John 4:17. We can have boldness in the day of judgement because as He is, so are we in this world. If they ground you walk on is stone then there is nothing to fear for fear involves torment but we have Perfect Love residing in us. But if there is sand then get to where the stone is. I had a dream about 9 years ago where all the townhouses around me were crumbling and being shaken and being destroyed but I declare my foundation is built upon a rock and my townhouse did not shake and wasn’t destroyed.The soil of our heart must be soft but the soil of our house must be rock. Hebrews 11:10(AMP) For he was [waiting expectantly and confidently] looking forward to the city which has fixed and firm foundations, whose Architect and Builder is God.

Sorry if some of my blogs seem like I ramble but I don’t always have the time to sit and properly construct my blogs…I type as I think sometimes. Be bless and walk in the fact that you are reconciled and God is making His appeal through you to others that they too are reconciled.

2 Corinthians 5:17-21 (NASB)

17 Therefore if anyone is in Christ, [a]he is a new creature; the old things passed away; behold, new things have come. 18 Now all these things are from God, who reconciled us to Himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 namely, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and [b]He has [c]committed to us the word of reconciliation.

20 Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were making an appeal through us; we beg you on behalf of Christ, be reconciled to God. 21 He made Him who knew no sin to be sin on our behalf, so that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.

 

What you see you become

1 John 3:2J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

Oh, dear children of mine (forgive the affection of an old man!), have you realized it? Here and now we are God’s children. We don’t know what we shall become in the future. We only know that, if reality were to break through, we should reflect his likeness, for we should see him as he really is!

I’ve been thinking about this the past several weeks…it’s very interesting. It makes me think of:

1 John 4:17Amplified Bible (AMP)

17 In this [union and communion with Him] love is brought to completion and attains perfection with us, that we may have confidence for the day of judgment [with assurance and boldness to face Him], because as He is, so are we in this world.

and:

1 Corinthians 13:12New American Standard Bible (NASB)

12 For now we see in a mirror [a]dimly, but then face to face; now I know in part, but then I will know fully just as I also have been fully known.

I think one of the issue we don’t know who we are is because we don’t know who He is. Once our view of Him is clarified (many ways to do that) then our own selves gets transformed and conformed to the image of God and His Son, Jesus.

Matthew 6:22J.B. Phillips New Testament (PHILLIPS)

22-23 “The lamp of the body is the eye. If your eye is sound, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eye is evil, your whole body will be full of darkness. If all the light you have is darkness, it is dark indeed!”

What are we seeing and how are we seeing?

2 Corinthians 5:16Amplified Bible (AMP)

16 Consequently, from now on we estimate and regard no one from a [purely] human point of view [in terms of natural standards of value]. [No] even though we once did estimate Christ from a human viewpoint and as a man, yet now [we have such knowledge of Him that] we know Him no longer [in terms of the flesh].

Our growth can be subject to how much of Jesus we see. Jesus said if you seen Him you’ve seen the Father. The foundation for seeing Him is laid out in scripture but was never a substitute for continuing to see if not according to the flesh. The veil was torn not just for man being able to enter into God’s presence but also for God Presence being able to enter man. The veil was torn to give God access to Humanity and Humanity is forever linked to God in Jesus Christ. We are now partakers of the Divine Nature. If we don’t believe and act upon that then we won’t grow. I’ll refer to my previous blog: http://1john417.wordpress.com/2014/03/10/dont-hold-me-back/

We need to see Him as He is, currently, because we are like that in this world currently.

Fallen Perspective

Posted on

The results of the fall of Adam was that he would look to the earth and the work of his hands for his worth and value. Notice though that before he fell he was commissioned to take dominion over the earth and tend to the garden. Both had to do with the work of his hands. Nothing has changed…except perspective. Before it was, I am therefore I do, after, I do therefore I am. All of God comes from His name, I Am. I Am does because He Is. That is the image we were created in. That’s why I firmly believe that you won’t know what to do until you know who you are. 1 John 4:17 As He is, so am I.

As He is, so are we in this world
