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.

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.

Joseph gave them grain, but had the money placed back in their bags to test them. When they returned home, their father feared sending them back with Benjamin, but he eventually agreed. When they returned to Egypt, Joseph sent them to his home where he had a meal prepared. They explained they found the money in their bags. Joseph comforted them and provided them with the meal. Benjamin received five times the food as his brothers.

Pharaoh became angry with his cupbearer and chief baker and had them imprisoned. They had dreams that only Joseph was able to interpret. The cup bearer was to be restored to his position, and the baker would be hanged. Joseph asked the cupbearer to remember him when he was restored, but he did not remember him. Two years later, Pharaoh had two dreams that no one could interpret. The cupbearer remembered Joseph, then Joseph interpreted the dream for Pharaoh. God warned Pharaoh of seven years of abundance followed by seven years of famine. Pharaoh put Joseph in charge, and he successfully prepared Egypt for the famine.
