Luke 1:8-23 ......... Well, our lessons are on their way to the New Testament ....... Key Verse: And Israel said unto Joseph, "I" had not thought to see thy face: and, lo, God hath shewed me also thy seed. Genesis 48:11 The Family, Family Affections, Grandfather "I" -- Genesis 45:26 -- Civil & Social Life, Regal Authority in Egypt, To Appoint a Viceroy And told him, saying, Joseph is yet alive, and he is governor over all the land of Egypt. And Jacob's heart fainted, for he beleved them not. Genesis 12:2 -- And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: Blessings - Being Blessed - Blessed to Bless Others - Choices - Obedience - Rewards - Disobedience - Consequences Deuteronomy 28:1-12: Blessings for Israel for obedience to God Deuteronomy 28:13 -- Works of God, Their Prosperity Deuteronomy 28:14 -- Idol Worship Forbidden Genesis 48:11-19 Verses 11, 12 -- The Family, Family Affections, Grandfather And Israel said unto Joseph, I had not thought to see thy face: and lo, God hath shewed me also thy seed. Israel -- Jacob thy seed -- his offspring, children And Joseph brought them out from between his knees, and he bowed himself with his face to the earth. Exodus 12:37 -- The Exodus frojm Egypt And "the" children of Israel journeyed from "Rameses" to Succoth, about six hundred thousand on foot that were men, besides children. "the" -- Numbers 33:35 -- The Wilderness, The 42 Stations Between Egypt and Canaan "Rameses" -- Genesis 47:11 -- Other Nations, The Hebrews Kindly Received in Egypt Israel - Jacob Genesis 48:11-19 Verses 13, 14, 17, 18, 19 -- Civil & Social Life, Business Affairs, Inheritance, Birthright And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel's left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel's right hand, and brought them near unto him. And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim's head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh's head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn. And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it "displeased" him: and he held up his father's hand to remove it from Ephraim's head unto Manasseh's head. And Joseph saide unto his father, Not so, my father: for thisw is the firstborn, put thy right hand upon his head. And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a "multitude" of nations. "displeased" -- was evil in his eyes Real Life 101 -- We should be directed by the Holy Spirit and not by tradition .... ...... It will guide us in all things only if we listen .. Faith Walk ... As long as the Lord give me strength I will continue to share my sunday school lesson notes ... My plan is to say with each lesson .. we will have to wait and see. Real Life 101: You got to walk it ... There is a song called "The Cupid Shuffle" you have to walk it by yourself, it says to the left and to the right, etc. .. now walk it by yourself...... I can not remember who sings it .... Exodus 2:24 -- God Remembers HIS Covenant And God heard their groaning, and God remembered his covenant with Abraham, with Issac, and with Jacob. Deuteronomy 1:8 -- In the Wilderness, From Sinai to Southern Border of Canaan Behold, I have set the land before you: go in and possess th4e land which the LORD sware unto your fathers, Abraham, Issac, and Jacob, to give unto them and to their seed after them. Matthew 8:11 -- HEAVEN, The Great Multitude of the Saved And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Issac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. Genesis 48:15 -- Works of God, Preservation, Preserves and Protects Man And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers, Abraham and Issac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day. Real Life 101 .. Who are we walking before? The Lord, God... Who took car4e of him? The Lord. ... Who feeds us? The Lord.... THANKSGIVING -- We all have much to be thankful for Genesis 48:16 -- Angels, The Angel of The LORD, Or Of GOD, Identified With God The "Angel" which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let "my" name be named on them, and the name of my father's Abraham and Issac: and let them "grow" into a multitude in the midst of the earth. "Angel" -- capital "A" -- Identified with God "my" -- Amos 9:12 -- Strangers Shall Be Gathered In That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this. "grow" -- as fishes do increase Question -- Food for Thought --- Do you remember "Edom?" Scripture Reference taken from: KJV, Topical Reference Edition, Bible Crusade Publishers, Inc., Mt.
