PROPHETIC SIGNIFICANCE – JOSEPH’S VISIONS
“Shocking and unusual events are transpiring all over the world, it is almost incredible so much could take place in just a few years time! The events are too numerous to mention here. The nations are entering a time in which vital, major and startling events will take place!” The world will be entering a period similar to ancient history in the time of Joseph! And his visions that he interpreted were not only for his time but had a prophetic significance for our time!
Pharaoh received two dreams from the Lord. (Gen. 41:1-7, 25-32) “The first portrayed 7 well favored kine coming up out of the river Nile, followed by 7 others, ill favored kine and lean which ate up the first! In the second dream he saw 7 ears of corn, large and good, which were devoured by the thin and blasted ears! (Verse 24) Both dreams meant the same thing. They described that 7 good years of great prosperity were to come upon Egypt; and then would follow 7 severe years of famine! (Verses 29-32) Joseph explained that the dream was doubled to Pharaoh twice because it was established by God and would shortly come to pass! The same thing happened to Daniel when something important was given, it was doubled unto him twice. The second chapter of Daniel unveiled Nebuchadnezzar’s dream of the great image, foretelling the rise of 4 successive empires. In Dan. chapter 7 it explains the same thing again, only adds more details! So when something is vital and important it is doubled or even given three times.
“Joseph was made ruler over all of Egypt (verse 43). And Joseph gathered up all the corn (food) and put it in storage houses. (Verses 48, 49, 57) And during the famine all of Egypt’s wealth came in the hands of Joseph; at this point he had absolute power to do good or evil, but he did good!” (Gen. 47:14-26) “But as a young child he saw that all of this would come under his control!” Gen. 37:7-9, “Behold, your sheaves stood round about, and made obeisance to my sheaf, and behold the sun and the moon and the eleven stars made obeisance to me!” “Joseph was also foreshadowing what would happen to Christ concerning His people when everything would be put under His control later!” Rev. 12:1, “And there appeared a great wonder in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of 12 stars. This speaks of Israel and the Church of the ages! The 12 stars correspond to the Old Testament Patriarchs and or to the 12 apostles.” – “And the child she brought forth in verse 5 is the elect of our time! The man child does not represent all of the sun woman’s children, because verse 17 reveals to us that there are others of her seed fleeing in the Tribulation!” The man child however holds the pre-eminent position! (translated) – “No doubt the world is entering a time similar to Joseph’s or has already started well into it, which covered fourteen years. Also Jesus said of our time, it would be shortened. “There will arise a man similar to Joseph, but he will be the anti-christ! During his 7 years of time will be prosperity. And during the last 3 ½ years in the Tribulation there will be great famine and he will also have his world storage (food) bins, world bank and world worship of him!” “But unlike Joseph he will demand a mark for those who eat or have prosperity!” Similar to Joseph (only in a wicked way) he will have all the gold (money), land and military under his control!” “Also remember wherein Satan realized he could not rule the heavens and found his ambition paralyzed he now enters through the body of the anti-christ beast and tries to rule the earth; and does for awhile, but ultimately fails!” (Rev. 20:10) “When the bride is raptured Satan comes down in a great wrath!” (Rev. 12:9, 12)
“During the famine Joseph’s brethren came up to and accepted him where once they rejected him! This is a type of the 144,000 Hebrews who will accept Christ during the Tribulation!” (Gen. 45:1-5) “There is real possibility that it won’t be long until we will be nearing these last 7 years!” – Joseph when he gave the warning was near and in the land of the Great Pyramid! And now God has given the warning from His Capstone Pyramid, where His voice thundered the message (to prepare). And surely we are getting near to the beginning of all these events above!” – “The energy, money and food crises will work right into the hands of the anti-christ system!”
