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.

Day 53 - Read Leviticus 4-5

June 15, 2024 • Leviticus 4—5

The Lord gave instructions for sin offerings. Sacrifices were offered for unintentional sins that became known to the guilty priest, leader, or entire assembly. The priest presented the sacrifice on the guilty party’s behalf. God provided additional instructions for guilt offerings. A person’s guilt was realized, he confessed, and then provided a payment for that sin as instructed by God.

Day 52 - Read Leviticus 1-3

June 14, 2024 • Leviticus 1—3

Leviticus documents the law of the priests. The sacrifices described foreshadow the coming of Christ. Animal sacrifices were required to be without blemish. Burnt offerings were a pleasing aroma to the Lord when offered according to His instructions. God required grain offerings to be presented to Aaron’s sons, and a portion was burned as a memorial on the altar as a pleasing aroma to the Lord. The remaining grain was food for Aaron and his sons. Any baked offering was to be unleavened. Purity was a necessity in all sacrifices to the Lord.

The people set out when the cloud was taken up from over the tabernacle. They remained when the cloud was not taken up.
