John saw the angels who conquered the beast. They were praising God. He saw seven angels with seven plagues. The angels were given seven bowls full of God’s wrath. Each angel poured the bowls of wrath, one at a time on those who worshiped the beast, and on the earth. This is the final wrath of God. The mountains were destroyed, and God remembered the sin of Babylon. The seventh bowl was poured out and large hailstones fell on the people. They cursed God. An angel showed John another vision. The vision told of Babylon, sexual sin and blasphemy, the power of Rome, and the destruction of earthly kingdoms. The prophesies of God were fulfilled, then the power of God overwhelmed the earthly kingdoms.

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.

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.
