Welcome to Ning

A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold is as pictures of silver.(Prov.25:11) It is so important to speak the right words to people at the right time to produce the right results. When you think of apples of gold in pictures of silver, then you are thinking of wealth and excellence. When we speak wisdom into the lives of others we are making them wealthy. Therefore we must seek God for He is the source of all wisdom and He will give us just the right words needed at the right time.

  • #The beginning of the word of the LORD by Hosea. And the LORD said to Hosea, Go take unto thee a wife of whoredoms and children of whoredoms: for the land hath committed great whoredom, departing from the LORD. So he went and took Gomer the daughter of Diblaim; which conceived and bare him a son. Hosea 1:2,3

    Hosea obeys the highest God Jehovah by taking Gomer to wife. This was an amazing thing, for the land had committed whoredoms, and now Hosea can identify with Israel by having Gomer as his wife. This was a marriage doomed to failure, but God told Hosea to marry Gomer so that Hosea could understand how Israel had forsaken Jehovah the fountain of living waters, for broken cisterns. No father would want his son to be hurt by an unfaithful wife. Yet the Heavenly Father, Jehovah will make a good wife out of Gomer after she has committed her whoredoms. The three children that are born of whoredoms: Jezreel, the son meaning God will avenge the blood of Jezreel upon the house of Jehu. The daughter: Loruhamah: for I will no more have mercy upon the house of Israel. The last son: Loammi: for ye are not my people. Jehovah gave all the children a name to remind them of their mother's whoredoms. God is utterly angry at Israel for committing spiritual adultery. So stay with me in the Book of Hosea as we go through the life and times of Gomer, and how Hosea loved an unfaithful wife, who would become a faithful wife.

  • #Now if Timotheus comes, see that he may be with you without fear: for he worketh the work of the Lord as I do. I Cor.16:10

    Paul has just exhorted the Macedonians on giving and doing all things on love. Now Timotheus is doing the work of the Lord, and Paul was concerned that he is not fearful. This is what led him to write God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. IITim 1:7 It is great when we put this in practice and doing the work of the Lord can be such great joy.

  • #Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us and let us run with patience the race before us, Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. Heb. 12:1,2

    Let us look to Jesus the author and finisher of our faith. Just like Joseph was able to forgive his brethren all the evil they had committed against him. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. Forgive others, just as God for Christ sake has forgiven us.

  • #So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the trespass of thy brethren and their sin, for they did unto thee evil and now we pray thee, forgive the trespass of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him. And his brethren also went and fell down before his face and they said Behold, we, thy servants. And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God? But as for you, ye thought evil against me, but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save many people alive. Now, therefore, fear ye not: I will nourish you and your little ones. And he comforted them and spoke kindly unto them. Gen. 50:17-21

    Joseph completely forgives his brethren of the evil that they did unto him. Just as Yeshua on the cross said Father forgive them, for they know not what they do. Joseph speaks kindly to his brethren, which tells us when you completely forgive people, the tone of your voice should be that of kindness. We are prone to forgive, but harbor grudges. That is not true forgiveness. Joseph knows that Yahweh has sent him to Egypt to save many lives, and it took all of the sufferings that Joseph had to endure to accomplish that task. Be not weary in good works, for ye shall reap, if ye faint not. For Joseph did not faint, and he reaped the good deeds of all of his sufferings. This is a marvelous example for you and for me in our present day of sufferings. Do not lash out at those who brought about the sufferings, but look at God for allowing it to happen. This too shall pass as it did for Joseph, and the joy of the morning will follow the weeping in the night. So Joseph lived 110 years, saw three generations of his grandchildren and was buried in Egypt. Before his death, he had the children of Israel to promise to carry his bones back to Canaan when God would visit them in Egypt with a mighty deliverance. We will see Joseph in heaven and then we can ask him how he learned to forgive the way the Lord commands all of us to forgive, without being bitter towards those whom we have forgiven. This is my favorite story in the Bible and I hope that you have been blessed by it.

  • #And Joseph fell upon his father's face and wept over him and kissed him. And Joseph commanded his servants the physicians to embalm his father and the physicians embalmed Israel. And forty days were fulfilled for him; for so are the days of those which are embalmed and the Egyptians mourned for him threescore and ten days, Gen. 50:1-3

    Joseph pours out his heart weeping for his father and the Egyptians mourned 70 days, which was admirable. Joseph had doctors to immediately embalm his father Israel. The Egyptians were masters of this science and that is how the Israelites learned about embalming and preparing mummified bodies. This was very important as the Lord Jesus Christ after His death on the cross was mummified by Joseph of Arimathea. This was very important because Psalm 16 said that our Lord would not see corruption, so this knowledge was paramount to Israelites. Praise God for Pharaoh being an honorable man, and allowed Joseph to go to Canaan land were Israel had prepared a grave for his burial. Thus Joseph was able to fulfill his promise to his father Israel.

  • #Judah, thou art he whom thy brethren shall praise: thy hand shall be in the neck of thine enemies, thy father's children shall bow down before thee. Judah is a lion's whelp: from prey, my son, thou art has gone up: he stooped down, he couched as a lion and as an old lion, who shall rouse him up? The scepter shall not depart from Judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until Shiloh come and unto him shall the gathering of the people be. Gen. 49:8-10

    Israel has given the prophecy of Yeshua that shall come from the tribe of Judah. The Lion of the tribe of Judah will prevail and take the title deed of this world back from Satan, whom Adam handed over to him in the Garden of Eden. Every eye shall see him and every knee shall bow and confess that He is Lord to the glory of God the Father. The earth shall be filled with the knowledge of God and the law shall proceed from Israel as the rivers cover the earth. This prophecy shall be fulfilled in the Day of the Lord when the kingdoms of this world will become the kingdoms of our Lord and His Christ.

  • #And Israel beheld Joseph's sons and said who are these? And Joseph said unto his father, they are my sons, whom God hath given me in this place. And he said bring them, I pray thee, unto me, and I will bless them. Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age so that he could not see. And he brought them near unto him and he kissed them and embraced them. And Israel said unto Joseph, I had not thought to see thy face and, lo, God hath shewed me also thy seed. And Joseph brought them out to his knees and he bowed himself with his face to the earth. 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 he blessed Joseph and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day, The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads and let my name be named on them and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth. 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 said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this 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. And he blessed them that day, saying in thee shall Israel bless, saying, God make thee as Ephraim and as Manasseh and he set Ephraim before Manasseh. And Israel said unto Joseph, Behold, I die, but God shall be with you and bring you again unto the land of your fathers. Gen. 48:8-21

    God is with Israel as when he blesses Joseph's two sons, he put his right hand upon Ephraim's head and his left hand upon Manasseh's head. His eyes were dim and he could not see, but the Holy Spirit allowed him to discern that Ephraim would be greater as the younger than the elder firstborn Manasseh. Israel gives glory to God for feeding him all of his days, and the Angel of His presence for protecting him from evil. Truly God is great telling us the genealogy of nations. America from Ephraim and Great Britan from Manasseh. Truly God must be glorified in all that we do. As Israel confirms that Joseph will indeed be brought back to the land of his fathers. It too would happen as before Joseph death, that he told the children of Israel to take his bones back to Israel.

  • #And Israel dwelt in the land of Egypt, in the country of Goshen and they had possessions therein and grew and multiplied exceedingly. And Jacob lived in the land of Egypt seventeen years: so the whole age of Jacob was a hundred forty and seven years. And the time drew nigh that Israel must die and he called his son Joseph and said unto him, if now I have found grace in thy sight, put, I pray thee, thy hand under my thigh and deal kindly and truly with me; bury me not, I pray thee, in Egypt, But I will lie with my fathers and thou shalt carry me out of Egypt and bury me in their burying-place. And he said I will do as thou has said. And he said, swear unto me. And he sware unto him. And Israel bowed himself upon the bed's head. Gen 47:28-31

    Israel was a hundred and forty-seven years old and knew the time of his death was soon, so he made Joseph swear that he would not be buried in Egypt. This would also be the motivation for Joseph when he was old to also make mention to carry his bones out of Egypt to Israel. There would be 430 years of slavery before this would happen, but this was the custom of the Israelis to ask this before their death. So Joseph would fulfill the promise to his father, but before Israel would die, he would have to pass the blessing to all of his children, and children's children. What a glorious tradition this would be, to bless his posterity before his death. We in America can learn a lot from this custom to bless those that are dying. Many Americans put their loved ones in nursing homes and let them spend their last days there. So shameful is this practice, that we must stop it to receive the blessing of God upon our loved ones.

  • #And the sons of Joseph, which were born to him in Egypt, were two souls: all the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt, were threescore and ten. And he sent Judah before him unto Joseph, to direct his face unto Goshen and they came into the land of Goshen. And Joseph made ready his chariot and went up to meet Israel his father, to Goshen and presented himself unto him and he fell on his neck and wept on his neck a good while. And Israel said unto Joseph, Now let me die since I have seen thy face, because of thou art yet alive. And Joseph said unto his brethren and unto his father's house, I will go up and show Pharaoh and say unto him, my brethren and my father's house, which were in the land of Canaan, are come unto me; And the men are shepherds, for their trade hath been to feed cattle and they have brought their flocks and their herds and all that they have. And it shall come to pass when Pharaoh shall call you and shall say, what is your occupation? That ye shall say, thy servants' trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we and also our fathers: that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians. Gen. 46:27-34

    Joseph is overjoyed to finally see his father, and the embrace of his neck for a long while was glorious. Weeping may be for the night, but joy comes in the morning. Jehovah has allowed the morning time to come to Joseph after all of his suffering in Egypt. Seventy souls of his father are now going to live in Goshen and Joseph is concerned about how Pharaoh is going to inquire about their occupation. Knowing this that most of their lives have been filled with tending to sheep, as shepherds Joseph tells them how to answer by saying their occupation is about cattle. For shepherds are an abomination unto the Egyptians. This is somewhat controversial to the Jews since they take great joy in being shepherds. Yet it appears Israel did not allow that to bother him, since he is now ready to die, now that he has seen his beloved son of Rachel, Joseph. May we learn how to be politically correct as Joseph so as not to offend Pharaoh. We are in the middle of a new administration in America and immigration has become a hot-button topic, we need to keep the peace by being politically correct. All Americans are immigrating and the true natives are the Indians. The Indians are at peace on the reservations and have learned by being politically correct to stay that way. Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God.

  • #So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God and He hath made me a father to Pharaoh and lord of all his house and a ruler throughout all of the land of Egypt. Haste ye and go up to my father and say unto him, thus saith thy son Joseph, God hath made me lord of all Egypt: come down unto me, tarry not: And thou shalt dwell in the land of Goshen and thou shalt be near unto me, thou, and thy children and thy children's children and thy flocks and thy herds and all thou hast: And there will I nourish thee, for yet there are five years of famine, lest thou and thy household and all that thou hast, come to poverty. And behold, your eyes see and the eyes of my brother Benjamin, that it is my mouth that speaketh unto you. And ye shall tell my father of all my glory in Egypt and of all that, ye have seen and ye shall haste and bring down my father hither. Gen.45:8-13

    How the Lord has been glorified in the life of Joseph and he is remembering the commandment to honor thy father and mother all the days of thy life and it will be well with thee. This is the prosperity gospel if we would do it, then it will be well with us. Joseph is concerned that his father not comes to poverty since there are five years left for the famine. O, if children could help their parents in time of need. My father told me when he was old and could not work, that we children should have saved more money so that we could help our parents in this time of need. My father knew that Mom was coming down with Alzheimer's decease and that it would take a lot of money for her care. My father passed away before she progressed to Alzheimer's, but we as a family sold the family home to take care of our mother so that she would not come to poverty. Thank God just as Joseph provided for his family that it went well with him and it is going well with us for keeping the commandments of God.
