The story of Joseph and his brothers is an allegory about Jesus and the Israelites – 6000years.org

Submitted By 6000years.org

Revelation received 28 aug 18 while reading the Bible.

The story of Joseph and his brothers is an allegory about Jesus
and the Israelites, the theme being that Joseph’s brothers were
greatly offended at their younger brother Joseph because of his
dreams in which they would all bow down to him (this corresponds
to the Jews not wanting to accept Jesus’ claim to be God’s son).
So they sold him into slavery and told their father that he had
been killed (this corresponds to the Jews handing Jesus over to
the Romans to be executed). In Egypt God raised him up to be
prime minister (2nd in command under Pharaoh). The allegory spans
from the time of Jesus to the very end of the age, which is now,
and so last few chapters of Genesis pertain to our time now. So
we should pay special attention to this part of the Bible to see
what we might learn.

In the story there is a severe 7 year famine which Joseph
prepared for during the previous 7 years of good times. This
famine was so severe that at least the whole middle east and north
Africa was starving. This drew Joseph’s brothers to come to Egypt
to buy grain. Joseph’s brothers didn’t recognize their own
brother, no doubt partly because he was dressed as an Egyptian
high official, and also because God made it so they wouldn’t
recognize him. Joseph cleverly manipulates the situation so as to
get all of his brothers in Egypt then he finally reveals himself
to them. Once they realize who he is they are greatly afraid
because of what they did to him. But he said this to them:

“I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! 5 And
now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves
for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent
me ahead of you. 6 For two years now there has been famine in
the land, and for the next five years there will be no plowing
and reaping. 7 But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you
a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great
deliverance. 8 “So then, it was not you who sent me here, but
God. He made me father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household
and ruler of all Egypt. gen 45:4-8

and

“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good
to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”
gen 50:20

This corresponds to Jesus’ death to pay for the sins of the world
and his resurrection and ascension to rule at the right hand of the
Father.

In chapter 50 there are some numbers given that we should pay
attention to. In verse 3 it says “the Egyptians mourned for
Joseph’s father Jacob seventy days“. And in verse 10 “When
they reached the threshing floor of Atad, near the Jordan, they
lamented loudly and bitterly; and there Joseph observed a seven-day
period of mourning for his father”.

Many people have prophesied that this, the 70th year of Israel, is
the year of completion and will start the 7 year tribulation period
prophesied by Daniel and Revelation. Here we see these 2 numbers –
70 days of mourning followed by 7 days of mourning. I think it
could be that God has hidden the time clock in this end-time
allegory as 70 days = 70 years, and 7 days = 7 years. Many people
have been given messages and confirmations that something very big –
a major judgement of God – will happen over this September Fall
feast period (Trumpets, Day of Atonement and Tabernacles). Many
people believe this is a Jubilee year (the the Hebrew calendar)
which ends September 11 on the Feast of Trumpets. In fact it may be
the 120th Jubilee – the last one before Christ returns. We may well
be in the last few days before the Tribulation begins.

We will finally find out if there will be a pre-trib rapture. If
there is one, I don’t believe it will be for everyone who calls
themself Christian, or even all who have ever been born-again. No
it would be for only those who have been walking closely closely
with Jesus and bearing fruit (souls won) – people who are ready for
heaven and don’t need to be here any longer (less than 10% of the
church, probably close to 1%). Or everyone will be here for the
Tribulation. Whatever the case, we will find out soon.

Most Christians who hold to the “pre-trib” rapture theory mistakenly
think the whole tribulation period is “the wrath of God”. But the
Bible is clear that God’s wrath comes at the end of the tribulation,
after the 6th Seal.

12 I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a
great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat
hair, the whole moon turned blood red, 13 and the stars in the sky
fell to earth, as figs drop from a fig tree when shaken by a
strong wind. 14 The heavens receded like a scroll being rolled up,
and every mountain and island was removed from its place. 15 Then
the kings of the earth, the princes, the generals, the rich, the
mighty, and everyone else, both slave and free, hid in caves and
among the rocks of the mountains. 16 They called to the mountains
and the rocks, “Fall on us and hide us from the face of him who
sits on the throne and from the wrath of the Lamb! 17 For the great
day of their wrath has come, and who can withstand it?” rev
6:12-17

All of the tribulation before the 6th Seal is really the wrath of
Satan:

But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has
gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that
his time is short.” rev 12:12

I hope and pray this word will be helpful to the saints in the
coming days. God bless you all.

    Very good article and good assessment, I had 2 dreams some months back about the rapture in both cases heard only 1 percent was going to make the rapture I pray for souls to be saved and the labors, and I claim Luke 21:35 36 to be accounted worthy and every day I look to the sky waiting for my redemption and asking is this the day Lord
