Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem






The Story of Joseph

Genesis, Chapter 37



Pharaoh’s Dreams

1. Then it came to pass, at the end of two full years, that Pharaoh had a dream; and behold, he stood by the river. 2. Suddenly there came up out of the river seven cows, fine looking and fat; and they fed in the meadow. 3. Then behold, seven other cows came up after them out of the river, ugly and gaunt, and stood by the other cows on the bank of the river. 4. And the ugly and gaunt cows ate up the seven fine looking and fat cows. So Pharaoh awoke. 5. He slept and dreamed a second time; and suddenly seven heads of grain came up on one stalk, plump and good. 6. Then behold, seven thin heads, blighted by the east wind, sprang up after them. 7. And the seven thin heads devoured the seven plump and full heads. So Pharaoh awoke, and indeed, it was a dream. 8. Now it came to pass in the morning that his spirit was troubled, and he sent and called for all the magicians of Egypt and all its wise men. And Pharaoh told them his dreams, but there was no one who could interpret them for Pharaoh.

9. Then the chief butler spoke to Pharaoh, saying: “I remember my faults this day. 10. When Pharaoh was angry with his servants, and put me in custody in the house of the captain of the guard, both me and the chief baker, 11. we each had a dream in one night, he and I. Each of us dreamed according to the interpretation of his own dream. 12. Now there was a young Hebrew man with us there, a servant of the captain of the guard. And we told him, and he interpreted our dreams for us; to each man he interpreted according to his own dream. 13. And it came to pass, just as he interpreted for us, so it happened. He restored me to my office, and he hanged him.”

14. Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they brought him quickly out of the dungeon; and he shaved, changed his clothing, and came to Pharaoh. 15. And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I have had a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it. But I have heard it said of you that you can understand a dream, to interpret it.”.

16. So Joseph answered Pharaoh, saying, “It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh an answer of peace.” 17. Then Pharaoh said to Joseph: “Behold, in my dream I stood on the bank of the river. 18. Suddenly seven cows came up out of the river, fine looking and fat; and they fed in the meadow. 19. Then behold, seven other cows came up after them, poor and very ugly and gaunt, such ugliness as I have never seen in all the land of Egypt. 20. And the gaunt and ugly cows ate up the first seven, the fat cows. 21. When they had eaten them up, no one would have known that they had eaten them, for they were just as ugly as at the beginning. So I awoke. 22. Also I saw in my dream, and suddenly seven heads came up on one stalk, full and good. 23. Then behold, seven heads, withered, thin, and blighted by the east wind, sprang up after them. 24. And the thin heads devoured the seven good heads. So I told this to the magicians, but there was no one who could explain it to me.”

25. Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, “The dreams of Pharaoh are one; God has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do: 26. The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good heads are seven years; the dreams are one. 27. And the seven thin and ugly cows which came up after them are seven years, and the seven empty heads blighted by the east wind are seven years of famine. 28. This is the thing which I have spoken to Pharaoh. God has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do. 29. Indeed seven years of great plenty will come throughout all the land of Egypt; 30. but after them seven years of famine will arise, and all the plenty will be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine will deplete the land. 31. So the plenty will not be known in the land because of the famine following, for it will be very severe. 32. And the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.

33. “Now therefore, let Pharaoh select a discerning and wise man, and set him over the land of Egypt. 34. Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, to collect one-fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt in the seven plentiful years. 35. And let them gather all the food of those good years that are coming, and store up grain under the authority of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities. 36. Then that food shall be as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which shall be in the land of Egypt, that the land may not perish during the famine.”


Joseph’s Rise to Power

37. So the advice was good in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of all his servants. 38. And Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find such a one as this, a man in whom is the Spirit of God?”

39. Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Inasmuch as God has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you. 40. You shall be over my house, and all my people shall be ruled according to your word; only in regard to the throne will I be greater than you.” 41. And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”

42. Then Pharaoh took his signet ring off his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand; and he clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. 43. And he had him ride in the second chariot which he had; and they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” So he set him over all the land of Egypt. 44. Pharaoh also said to Joseph, “I am Pharaoh, and without your consent no man may lift his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt.” 45. And Pharaoh called Joseph’s name Zaphnath-Paaneah. And he gave him as a wife Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On. So Joseph went out over all the land of Egypt.

46. Joseph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh king of Egypt. And Joseph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Egypt. 47. Now in the seven plentiful years the ground brought forth abundantly. 48. So he gathered up all the food of the seven years which were in the land of Egypt, and laid up the food in the cities; he laid up in every city the food of the fields which surrounded them. 49. Joseph gathered very much grain, as the sand of the sea, until he stopped counting, for it was immeasurable. 50. And to Joseph were born two sons before the years of famine came, whom Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On, bore to him. 51. Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh: “For God has made me forget all my toil and all my father’s house.” 52. And the name of the second he called Ephraim: “For God has caused me to be fruitful in the land of my affliction.” 53. Then the seven years of plenty which were in the land of Egypt ended, 54. and the seven years of famine began to come, as Joseph had said. The famine was in all lands, but in all the land of Egypt there was bread. 55. So when all the land of Egypt was famished, the people cried to Pharaoh for bread. Then Pharaoh said to all the Egyptians, “Go to Joseph; whatever he says to you, do.” 56. The famine was over all the face of the earth, and Joseph opened all the storehouses and sold to the Egyptians. And the famine became severe in the land of Egypt. 57. So all countries came to Joseph in Egypt to buy grain, because the famine was severe in all lands.

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem








Almighty God,
Everlasting Father,
Hallowed be Your Name!
You are Wonderful! Our Counselor,
Holy, Righteous and Just,
And Glorious in Majesty!
You Alone Are Worthy of Worship
For Your Alone Are The One True God.
Perfect in All Your Ways

Because of Your Grace and Mercy,
Joseph rises to the top.
He shines in his integrity.
Even in the Court of a King,
He gives godly, inspired and bold answers to those who question him.
And thus, by Your Revelation to Joseph through the Pharaoh's Dream
Joseph is able to save millions of people.
And through this, the preservation of the Family of Israel,
And eventually the giving of the Law, The Prophets, and the Messiah.
Thank You, Father, for showing us History through Your Perspective!
And thank you for heroes like Joseph,
who show us how to conduct ourselves in a corrupt world.

LORD, We ask that You fill the leaders of the USA with Your Spirit,
that they may make Holy and Righteous decisions.
Comfort and heal those who have been touched by Violence,
And please expose and correct those who use tragedy
to further their own political agenda.
Bring the Truth To Light, Abba Father,
And expose all the Liars!

For the Sake of Your Anointed,
and For The Sake of Your Name,
we pray for the Peace of Jerusalem,
For Israel,
According to Your Word,
and Your Promise.

Give us Wisdom,
That we may discern Your Plan,
Even in bizarre events that leave us puzzled,
frustrated, and hurt.
Help Us remember that You are in Control,
You Are On the Throne.
Thine is the Kingdom,
The Power and the Glory,
And You Are the Same,
Yesterday, Today, and Forever!

Father, We eagerly await Messiah,
To Set Up His Kingdom,
And Make All Things Right.

Pray For the Peace of Jerusalem








As The Story of Joseph unfolds,
we see his utter dependence upon the LORD for his Wisdom and his integrity.
Every time he is praised,
every time he is elevated in stature,
Every time he interprets a dream,
and even in the naming of his children,
he gives all the credit and glory to God!

Be diligent to present yourself approved to God, a worker who does not need to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.—2 Timothy 2:15

Dear LORD, we thank YOU that in YOUR GREAT MERCY and GRACE YOU have preserved the stories of those who honored YOU, loved YOU, trusted YOU, and Glorified YOU. Joseph, a worker of GOD’s MERCY and GRACE, who never needed to be ashamed before YOU, for YOU were his all in all. May we learn something from this man. We pray for the Peace of Jerusalem, that TRUTH will manifest in all things, that SALVATION will be seen among your People, that blessing will go forward over our friend MestaMachine..Amen.
