1/28/2018 – Genesis Chapters 46-47

I always marvel at the reality that the Lord is not limited as we are by the concept of “time.”   We see this in Genesis 46:3-4 in the promise the Lord makes to Jacob.

“I am God, the God of your father,” he said. “Do not be afraid to go down to Egypt, for I will make you into a great nation there. I will go down to Egypt with you, and I will surely bring you back again. And Joseph’s own hand will close your eyes.”

Of course history tells us that it was roughly 400 years before the nation of Israel was lead out of Egypt by Moses.

But the Lord fulfilled this promise just as He will fulfill every promise He has given us.
