Day 124 - Read 1 John 4-5

April 5, 2024 • 1 John 4—5

The spirit of God is true to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Any other spirit is false and is against Christ. Greater is He who is in us than he that is in the world. God is love and everyone who is in the Lord loves Him and loves others. We are able to love because He first loved us and has given us a spirit of love. Christians love the Father and obey His commands. They overcome the world because of faith in Jesus. God has given us eternal life through Jesus. Whoever has the Son has life. John wrote these to offer confidence of eternal life in Jesus. There is a sin unto death; knowing the truth and willfully denying it as truth. Those who are born of God do not live sinful lives. Jesus protects God’s children from the evil one.

Jacob told Joseph of God’s blessings in giving him many descendants and land. Joseph took his sons to Jacob, and he blessed them. Jacob placed his right hand on Ephraim, and Joseph attempted to change his father’s hands because Manasseh was the first born. Jacob told Joseph that both sons would be great, but the younger son would be blessed beyond the older son. Jacob told Joseph that God would be with him and would take him again to the land of his fathers. He promised land to Joseph that he took from the Amorites in war.

Jacob (Israel) left Canaan with all his household and journeyed to Egypt. He offered sacrifices to God in Beersheba. God spoke to Jacob in a dream and reminded him of the promise He made to Jacob. God told Jacob that He would bring his people back to the land He promised. Pharaoh told Joseph to offer his family the best land in Goshen to tend their flocks. Jacob gave Pharaoh a blessing. The people of Egypt and Canaan gave all their money, their livestock, and their land for food during the famine. They eventually offered themselves in servitude to Pharaoh for food. The priests were the only exception because they were provided a portion of food from Pharaoh. Jacob made Joseph promise to bury him outside of Egypt with his fathers.

May 19, 2024 • Genesis 44—45

Joseph tested his brothers by setting them up to defend Benjamin. The brothers returned to Joseph and bowed before him. They asked Joseph to allow Benjamin to return to his father and take them as servants in his place. They feared their father Jacob would die if Benjamin did not return to him. Joseph sent everyone away except his brothers, and he told them who he was. Joseph told his brothers not to be upset at themselves because it was God’s will that he be taken to Egypt to preserve their lives. Joseph celebrated with his brothers, then sent them to get their father. Pharaoh promised them all they needed in the land of Egypt, and they were given the necessary supplies to travel to Canaan to get their father and return to Egypt.
