Genesis 49:22 Joseph is a fruitful bough, even a fruitful bough by a well; whose branches run over the wall: 23 The archers have sorely grieved him, and shot at him, and hated him: 24 But his bow abode in strength, and the arms of his hands were made strong by the hands of the mighty God of Jacob; (from thence is the shepherd, the stone of Israel:) 25 Even by the God of thy father, who shall help thee; and by the Almighty, who shall bless thee with blessings of heaven above, blessings of the deep that lieth under, blessings of the breasts, and of the womb: 26 The blessings of thy father have prevailed above the blessings of my progenitors unto the utmost bound of the everlasting hills: they shall be on the head of Joseph, and on the crown of the head of him that was separate from his brethren.
Matthew 1:18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
Fruit, branches,Shepherd, stone , everlasting and crown are just a few words , to see Jesus is coming. To think the man Mary was to marry named Joseph , was by accident, is to not understand Genesis 49 or Scriptures. The Lord our God is so amazing we are just going to freak out one great day. They knew Jesus was coming in Genesis , it was taught generation after generation. The enemy on earth has always fought for territory. Anyone not of God fights for earthly things. They wanted to do away with Joseph in Genesis and they hated and thought they killed Jesus on that Cross.
Jesus did come and He is coming again. Blessings come from Heaven and the life of Joseph shows us who He picks to do His will, never is who the world would pick.
“ John 6:42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph, whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith, I came down from heaven?”
“Luke 23:50 And, behold, there was a man named Joseph, a counsellor; and he was a good man, and a just: 51 (The same had not consented to the counsel and deed of them;) he was of Arimathaea, a city of the J...: who also himself waited for the kingdom of God. 52 This man went unto Pilate, and begged the body of Jesus. 53 And he took it down, and wrapped it in linen, and laid it in a sepulchre that was hewn in stone, wherein never man before was laid.”
Three different men named Joseph that God used and played a part in the name of Jesus, coincidence? No , there are no coincidences with God, none. One foretold of His coming , one helped raise Him and one took care of His body after the Cross.
The same enemy that wanted to do away with Joseph exist today, the war for souls will not end till God says it is over. The only territory any person every wanted to be part of ,as no human owns territory, is to be found as wheat in the barn of Jesus. No person was ever to decided who is who for the Lord , they always got it wrong . The entire bible shows God sent Jesus to gather His harvest that He created. Jesus is very clear many will think they are His and will be tares.
“Genesis 41:48 And he gathered up all the food of the seven years, which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities: the food of the field, which was round about every city, laid he up in the same. 49 And Joseph gathered corn as the sand of the sea, very much, until he left numbering; for it was without number.”
“Luke 9:16 Then he took the five loaves and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed them, and brake, and gave to the disciples to set before the multitude.”
Just wow at the God we say we love and pray to. It is easy to be those that want to throw Joseph is the well or those that hung Jesus on the Cross when we see are blind and deaf...Jesus came to open the eyes of those that did not see Jesus in Genesis 49 and taught lies from birth. Jesus came to make the deaf to hear , that did not hear the true word of God and Jesus on the first page to the last. Be very careful who you follow , who you listen to. There was only ever one truth and it is Jesus is coming from Genesis to Revelation , to do His Father's will. God's will , will never look or sound like anything else...
How beautiful the story of Jesus is , through the story of Joseph and gathering into the barns. If you have been taught by humans only the word of God , go spend 40 days , if we have 40 days , with the word of God . Allow the Lord to teach His word , only tares will say He can not do this , you must be taught by humans... RUN from such nonsense...
All man made teachings will be cast into the fire, all man made doctrines cause death and not life. God was always the Teacher and He left us , not only His words but His Holy Spirit to guide...
