    Fruit in the Life of Joseph

    Thank you Jim. I appreciate your thoughts. It was a blessing in my heart already in preparing the devotion. In this particular passage, as Joseph thought about the toils and afflictions that he went through, he naturally believed that it was God who brought about the fruit in his life. Joseph, as was Christ, among the other fruits of the Spirit previous mentioned, had inward peace, longsuffering, and temperance in their lives. Now, God, through prosperity, and then through adversity, is going to mightily use Joseph in the lives of not only the nation of Egypt, but in the lives of his own household. The fruits of Joseph, as the fruits of Christ, will be far-reaching in every aspect of the word.

    Fruit in the Life of Joseph

    An excellent devotion Bro. Alan. All that you brought out regarding fruit in the life of Joseph rings true. I have heard and taught on the life of Joseph and especially on Joseph as a type of Christ, but had never considered the fruits he bore as such. Thank you for a wonderful blessing in posting this devotion.

    A wonderful devotion and commentary of Joseph Bro. Alan. I have always loved the story of Joseph, not just for the story, but also for the inspiration his life is in so many ways. It is not limited to simply old testament history, but gives us today the inspiration to overcome under even the most adverse of life's situations. While Joseph is certainly a type of Christ, when viewed in this capacity he exhibits the power and determination to use his life situations for God's glory as well as the saving of his people. He used the adversity for good even while experiencing the heart wrenching things he went through. Like Christ, he was forsaken of his own brethren and yet was able to use his affliction for the salvation of his own, as well as the countries surrounding Egypt. Although God had, in Pharaoh's dream, pronounced judgement upon the nation Egypt, He also made a way of escape in the person of Joseph. We find this parallel in the very person of Jesus Christ, which Joseph is a type of. Jesus has been forsaken of his own, sold out and abandoned and yet has been appointed by God as the savior of not only his own, but also of all who will come to him for council in faith.

    Thank you for the fine message on Romans 1:16 & 17 concerning the gospel of Christ; true belief in Christ, repentance, humbleness in the sight of God, and salvation in the work of Christ, and His righteousness, alone. Thank you also for your four thoughts in soul-winning efforts, your love for soul-winning, and bringing out the fruits of repentance. Keep up your soul-winning preaching and efforts. "In the morning sow thy seed, and in the evening withhold not thine hand: for thou knowest not whether shall prosper, either this or that, or whether they both shall be alike good." Ecclesiastes 11:6

    Do Not Interpretations Belong to God?

    Jim, I am glad to hear that the devotion was a blessing to you. As with many other saints, the life, the character, and the moving incidents in the life of Joseph, are an inspiration. Throughout the life of Joseph, we can see God moving His hand in the life of Joseph to use him for the deliverance of the Jewish race, the deliverance of the Egyptians, and we can see the character of Christ. Truly, Romans 8:28 is evident in Joseph's life, "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." As Joseph loved God, so should we. Alan

    Do Not Interpretations Belong to God?

    Well done Bro. Alan. The life and testimony of Joseph should and can be an inspiration and source of Godly instruction for all true believers, even us these many centuries later.

    Thank you for your study on the differences of the Convents, and Promises in the scriptures. I personally appreciate the fine history (short), on the worship of God by the Chinese in ancient China. Also, I appreciate the following statement, "We show how the natural divisions and terms already in scripture are there to aid the believer in their study." God bless!

    Thank you for the encouraging sermon on Psalm 89. As you mentioned, we are in a war: battles will be fought, and sometimes we cannot see the victory in the grand scheme of things. But, God knows what He is doing and victory will come in due time. Every saint can rest in the promise in Psalm 89:34, "My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips." "Blessed be the LORD for evermore. Amen and Amen." Psalm 89:52 Keep up the good work.

    Thank you for the devotion. Isaiah 57:15 is one of my favorite verses. "For thus saith [THE HIGH AND LOFTY ONE] that inhabiteth eternity, [WHOSE NAME IS HOLY]; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of [a contrite and humble spirit], to revive [the spirit of the humble], and to revive the heart of [the contrite ones]." (Isaiah 57:15)

    Thankful For The Love Of God

    I volunteered and then worked at Kelowna Gospel Mission for 9 1/2 years, preached there for 7 1/2 years and was a supervisor there for about 3 1/2 - 4 years. But then I got assaulted by a drug dealer who was barred from our property; when I came back from getting my broken elbow x rayed, I was fired without a reason. That is why I got severely depressed and basically dropped out of church, these message boards, etc. Honestly, it was my life and my purpose and I truly felt lost when I couldn’t even volunteer there anymore. Being there transformed my life in so many ways.

    The Cost of a Soul

    I think every saved person has lost friends after getting saved. I didn't when I was saved when I was 22. But I was viewed as weird after salvation and couldn't answer questions about Christianity like I could now. After beginning my current IFB, when I started getting serious with my Savior, my Bible learning and my commitment to church however I did lose friends because I didn't believe in any of the new age beliefs (I never did but I was very vocal about it now). My family gives me the most grief, they're saved but liberal churches.
