I MUST BE RAISED OUT OF OBSCURITY

I MUST BE RAISED OUT OF OBSCURITY

ext: Genesis 37:23-24, 28

📖23….”And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him;
📖24….And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it.
📖28….Then there passed by Midianites merchantmen; and they drew and lifted up Joseph out of the pit, and sold Joseph to the Ishmeelites for twenty pieces of silver: and they brought Joseph into Egypt.”

Message:

🔥The life of Joseph, was like the life of Jesus Christ. Joseph was hated by his brothers, buried in a pit by same brothers in Gen 37:24, caused to be resurrected and sold into slavery for twenty pieces of silver by same brothers. Jesus was also hated by his brothers, and so refused to receive him in John 1:11, he was also sold by his apostle (a kind of brother), for thirty pieces of silver, killed and buried in a grave in Matthew 27:60 by same people he loved so much and came to save. But the capstone of Joseph’s resemblance with Jesus was the resurrection and the after effects. Joseph was raised from the pit, before being sold to Egypt. But having been sold after resurrection, his life changed like Jesus’, after his resurrection as well..

🔥🔥This shows the importance of resurrection in our faith. The grave, a place we ought to be resurrected from, is characterised by inactivity, denial, depravity, sicknesses, poverty, barrenness, etc. To defeat the grave, the word of God says in Rom 8:11 that, we should desire to have the Spirit which raised up Jesus from the grave to indwell us, so that our mortal bodies could also be quickened out of obscurity and other physical problems. Even though Joseph was buried, but because of an unwavering faith he had in God, he was raised from the pit where there was no water of hope.

🔥🔥🔥Before Joseph was buried in the pit and resurrected, he was directed by people as a wanderer…Gen 37:15-17. But after being raised up, he became a director of wandering destinies…Gen 45:10. He became a lord in Potiphar’s house, headed the prison even though a prisoner, became a dreams interpreter instead of a dreamer, and he ruled Egypt, after being raised from the pit. Finally, after his resurrection from the pit, his entire family bowed to him in Gen 42:6. Child of God, once you live by faith, God will raise you out of obscurity into relevance, as he did for Joseph, and every crisis and challenge shall bow unto you.

SOULS ACTIVITIES:

🙏Heavenly father, quicken me out of every shame and backwardness by the Spirit that raised up Jesus from the dead, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏O Lord, follow me with the grace which the raised up Joseph entered Egypt with, in Jesus’ name.

🙏🙏🙏Precious Redeemer, having been raised up from obscurity by faith, grant that I may rule my world without satanic oppositions in Jesus’ name.
