The 47th Chapter of Genesis and Obama
E Mail ^ | 2010 | E mail article

Posted on 07/19/2010 6:10:53 PM PDT by Steve Newton

This was sent to me in an e mail. I don't know if its true. But for some reason it chilled me to the bone. This is suppose to have been from a mostly black church.

I have been watching closely and reading FR daily. But for some reason this struck home.

God help us.

Perhaps we should each decide who our real leader is.....It is amazing to see that very little has changed in 4,000 years.

---------------------------------------------------

Good morning, brothers and sisters; it's always a delight to see the pews crowded on Sunday morning, and so eager to get into God's Word. Turn with me in your Bibles, if you will to the 47th chapter of Genesis, we'll begin our reading at verse 13, and go through verse 27.

Brother Ray, would you stand and read that great passage for us? .....(reading)....

Thank you for that fine reading, Brother Ray.. So we see that economic hard times fell upon Egypt , and the people turned to the government of Pharaoh to deal with this for them. And Pharaoh nationalized the grain harvest, and placed the grain in great storehouses that he had built. So the people brought their money to Pharaoh, like a great tax increase, and gave it all to him willingly in return for grain. And this went on until their money ran out, and they were hungry again.

So when they went to Pharaoh after that, they brought their livestock -their cattle, their horses, their sheep, and their donkey - to barter for grain, and verse 17 says that only took them through the end of that year..

But the famine wasn't over, was it? So the next year, the people came before Pharaoh and admitted they had nothing left, except their land and their own lives. "There is nothing left in the sight of my lord but our bodies and our land. Why should we die before your eyes, both we and our land? Buy us and our land for food, and we with our land will be servants to Pharaoh.." So they surrendered their homes, their land, and their real estate to Pharaoh's government, and then sold themselves into slavery to him, in return for grain.

What can we learn from this, brothers and sisters?

That turning to the government instead of to God to be our provider in hard times only leads to slavery? Yes.. That the only reason government wants to be our provider is to also become our master?

Yes.

But look how that passage ends, brothers and sisters! Thus Israel settled in the land of Egypt , in the land of Goshen .. And they gained possessions in it, and were fruitful and multiplied greatly." God provided for His people, just as He always has! They didn't end up giving all their possessions to government, no, it says they gained possessions! But I also tell you a great truth today, and an ominous one.

We see the same thing happening today - the government today wants to "share the wealth "once again, to take it from us and redistribute it back to us. It wants to take control of healthcare, just as it has taken control of education, and ration it back to us, and when government rations it, then government decides who gets it, and how much, and what kind. And if we go along with it, and do it willingly, then we will wind up no differently than the people of Egypt did four thousand years ago - as slaves to the government, and as slaves to our leaders.

What Mr. Obama's government is doing now is no different from what Pharaoh's government did then, and it will end the same. And a lot of people like to call Mr. Obama a "Messiah," don't they? Is he a Messiah? A savior? Didn't the Egyptians say, after Pharaoh made them his slaves, "You have saved our lives; may it please my lord, we will be servants to Pharaoh"?

Well, I tell you this - I know the Messiah; the Messiah is a friend of mine; and Mr. Obama is no Messiah! No, brothers and sisters, if Mr. Obama is a character from the Bible, then he is Pharaoh. Bow with me in prayer, if you will...

Lord, You alone are worthy to be served, and we rely on You, and You alone. We confess that the government is not our deliverer, and never rightly will be. We read in the eighth chapter of 1 Samuel, when Samuel warned the people of what a ruler would do, where it says "And in that day you will cry out because of your king, whom you have chosen for yourselves, but the LORD will not answer you in that day."

And Lord, we acknowledge that day has come. We cry out to you because of the ruler that we have chosen for ourselves as a nation. Lord, we pray for this nation. We pray for revival, and we pray for deliverance from those who would be our masters. Give us hearts to seek You and hands to serve You, and protect Your people from the atrocities of Pharaoh's government.

In God We Trust...

Hey, Joseph gave them a good deal. The gubberment only took 20% of their produce once they got up and running. We don’t have that good of a deal now . . . before the government steals our assets.

I have been praying and praying for God to send his angels to mess up the democrats’ paperwork, mix up their messages, lose their Blackberries, cause misunderstandings, and in general turn their evil back upon them. Then, last night, I caught myself praying, “Just get it over with...” Oh, MY...

Good prayers I think.

But please PLEASE dont give up hope.

We have been through a lot before and come out of it the better.

This will be one of those times I KNOW it.

It might seem hopeless

But soon Maybe too soon This will have to be stopped.

Keep praying

Smile

God loves us

What is interesting is Joseph (a great hero in the bible) was the author of this plan. He gave the Pharoah this plan after the Lord gave him the vision of the impending famine. So although I think the author makes some valid points, I wonder why Joseph did not recommend simply taking care of the citizens as opposed to forcing them to give up their land for the food. That is what a just govenrment would do...after all, the people gave the grain.

“I suppose it would be time”...for rebellion I assume you mean?

Let me tell you about what happened to me last Friday evening, which chilled me deeply.

A census worker showed up, because I didn’t “fill in the form completely”. After a lengthy debate on the constitutionality of the questions, I looked at the form she had. They had visited twice before. The first time I wasn’t home, so they left a sticky note on my door. I was going to be gone for the weekend, so I forewarned my 18 year old daughter that someone might be back, and I owed them nothing more than how many people lived here.

A man came back while I was out of town, and my daughter told him he had all the info he was going to get. He tried to coax her name out of her..she told to to “f-off”.

He added some comments to the bottom of the incomplete census form. I saw them when the next lady waved them around. “tea party attitude, hostile”.

I was livid, told her those better come off there before it gets turned in. She assured me it would, who knows.

But what really bothers me is that she asked me for my name and address, as she is standing in my driveway. I told her that it appeared to me that they already knew that, because she drove right to my front door. Then she showed me the numbers on the form, which correspond with my location.

They know where I live, that I have a “tea party attitude”, and consider me hostile. They also know what/if I own guns, and could drive up to my door right now, kick it in and demand my legal weapons if the order came down tonight.

IF this were ever tried en mass, we would never have time to even warn anyone else, especially if the internet were shut down for even a week. Call me paranoid, but I hate how the dots are connecting.

Aww

I think that is the key

We strong cannot pass a socialist government on to our children

We must protect the weak and innocent

I make that pledge now

This far

And no farther

Indeed

Divne Providence must be on our side or any attempt to resist will in in failure and jail.

When the time come, we will know. For it will come from God Almighty that we will either stand up or bow down.

I still think that God loves this country because He made it.

I still think that in the end we will win over evil.

Socialism will not stand

Freedom

Freedom will rule

A republic we are

And as a republic we will win or die

God willing

you should have done what I did in a similar situation at my house — I grabbed the form out of her hand and tore it up.
