Discussion for Genesis 41

  • PRINCE
    Genesis 41 and Joseph's life is consolidated by Genesis1:2-3 before God created light, there was darkness. Even a Christian before God exalts you, there has to be tribulation to reveal whether the heart will still believe in difficult circumstances. Just like Abraham before God gave him a child was subjected to long-suffering and famine even when ISAAC came he was asked to offer him to prove faith

    Note carefully how this Pharaoh reacts to the words of the man of God. This particular Pharaoh was a righteous man, and true enough to recognize good and sound words from God. He also evidently had no problem with God, with respect to his own position as king of Egypt; and was ready and able to act in faith appropriately, with respect to God's doings, and his own place as the ruler of his people.
  • Hajara
    The life of Joseph shows that humility and trust in God is the only way to success, also hard work, Joseph was all over Egypt, his position did not change anything
  • Rosetta Johnson
    It is my belief that God always send a warning before destruction, however it is up to us as believers to see the signs and obey them. Genesis 41 is a powerful illustration of how one believe in the power of God even during times of sorrow and pain. Joseph had endured many hardships at an early age, however he never stop depending on the Lord. He knew he would deliver on time. This nourishment!!

    Is this the first documented evidence of any human being having a dream or night mare?
    Can this dream remanifest itself millennia into the future?
    If the numbering of Chapter 41 is NOT a pure accident, then is there any possibility of determining when the dream may reoccur? Does the total number of 14 years give an indication? For example 41 - 14 = 27 (3 x 3 x 3) or perhaps the THIRD millennium?

    Pharoah recognized that Joseph had the spirit of God on him and that it wasn't his own abilities. All the glory really belonged to God.
