1/29/2018 — Genesis Chapters 48 – 50
As we come to the end of Genesis what struck me in these last chapters is that the chapters present a combination — a combination of the history of an earthly family & God’s eternal plan. The history of the earthly family of Jacob and Joseph is complete with all of the emotions we face — deaths, births, and the joy of blessings.
And throughout all of these emotions we see God’s plan unfolding as stated in some of the final words of Joseph in Genesis 50:24:
Then Joseph said to his brothers, “I am about to die. But God will surely come to your aid and take you up out of this land to the land he promised on oath to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”
