There was Pharaoh before Joseph’s interpretation saved them all from famine. There was Pharaoh during the Harvest of Joseph’s interpretation results that saved Pharaoh’s people as well as God’s chosen people from famine. And there was still a Pharaoh after Joseph’s interpretation that once saved them all from famine who saw the past event as no longer important to the well being of Egypt. After Joseph time on earth had ended with him once ruling all under a Pharaoh who always remained greater in the throne, the fate of the people was now back in the hands of a Pharaoh with Egypt mainly on his mind. And since the children of Israel no longer had an advocate, or a ruling hand pushing them favor, favor eventually pushed toward them no more.
What say ye children, and sons of the most high God? Just as God used Joseph to save the world from a death from famine, God sent Jesus to save the world from eternal death in hell. The two men, Joseph and Jesus, both did what they were called to do before leaving this world: one by death, and one after victory over death. The one thing that they both had in common, Joseph and Jesus, was that God was here working with both: God was here with Joseph as “I AM” amongst other hallow names in charge of the operation “just get Joseph to the Pharaoh,” and God was here with Jesus as “The Father” in charge of the operation “just get Jesus to the Cross.” Matter of fact, Jesus was always so excited to work with his Father that he talked about one occasion in John 5:17, “But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work.” Even in the midst of people who would sought after him to kill him, Jesus would just let it rang, let it rang, and let it rang. Jesus and his Father together must of had this effect on those they touched and became one with. I read of this same occurrence happening again over with some of the Apostles even after Jesus had gone on home to be next to glory. Look, read this: Acts 5:41, “ And they (the Apostles) departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.” That effect is on them as they just finish being beaten for working with the Father, and they are just rejoicing in front of all letting it rang, letting it rang, and letting it rang. How about you? You got that feeling all over you from working with the Father: Ok, go ahead, and let it rang, let it rang, and let it rang.
Yeah, after Joseph left, things didn’t go well at all for over four hundred years for the children of Israel. And although God was still here after Joseph left, there was no one yet sent of God to take Joseph’s place for the children of Israel to step into power, or to be an advocate for the people; so the Egyptian system ruled supremely for the Egyptians. I thank God the Father for the better plan given to us: if not for the better plan, we as members of the Body of Christ, the children of God, and sons of the Father, would also be in a situation where things would not have the chance to go well for us. The better plan: like Joseph was gone, Jesus is gone to be with the Father, but unlike Joseph, Jesus is alive and well sitting next to the right hand of Glory as a constant advocate to the Father on our behalf. And also unlike Joseph, when Jesus left, he left us a comforter that we may be taught all things, and have the power to do all things needed as we now work hitherto as the Father works. And unlike with the children of Israel, God sent his Son Jesus at the time he did to save us, and give us the right to be sons of the most high. The children of Israel couldn’t all be imprisoned, couldn’t all be sold away from home, and couldn’t all be given a colorful coat making them the called chosen target: so they could all have no idea what level of pain, and sacrifice was necessary for Joseph to know God the way that he needed to for service. Now on the other hand, there is also no way that all or any of the members of the body of Christ could know the Father at the level necessary to bring to pass eternal life for us all as Jesus did. So what did the Father do for us saved by Jesus that couldn’t be done for those saved from the famine by Joseph? The Father gave us the Spirit of his Son so that we would know by his Spirit, what is necessary, and required at each time for each purpose: the Spirit of the “Son” would drive us to our victory as a “Son” who paid the price would be driven. Every one of the children of Israel could have not been given no such Spirit; and even if they each could have been given Joseph’s spirit or anointing some how, it would not have been tailored to each needs. Jesus was given the fullness of the Godhead, and also the power to where every knee must bow: there is no need, or calling that any of us could have where the Spirit of the Son would find defeat. Yes, we can work with the Father because everyone of us can have the proven Spirit of the Son working on the inside of each of us tailored to our specific needs, and callings.
The Father Does Still Love To Do The Body Good.
