It is written:
“You meant to do me harm, but God meant it for good — so that it would come about as it is today, with many people’s lives being saved.” (Genesis 50:20 Complete Jewish Bible)
May Yosef ‘s example be an encouragement for each one of us. In our union with Yeshua Ha-Mashiach, we can Trust Yahweh, the Elohim of Isra’el, our Elohim and our Father, through the Painful Process in our lives.
Remember Yahweh is in the business of giving us a new heart, and His Glory has the remarkable ability to grow in the soil of tragic, devastating events.
Yahweh often brings good out of evil, and promotes the designs of His Providence even by the sins of men; not that He is the author of sin, far be it from us to think so; but His Infinite Wisdom so overrules events, and directs the chain of them, that, in the issue, that ends in His Praise.
The beauty of Yahweh’s Plan is often apparent only in retrospect, but it’s always there. That was true for Yosef —he said so in his statement that while his brothers had evil purposes, “Yahweh meant it for good” (Genesis 50:20)—and it is “TRUE for ALL”, Jews and non-Jews, who are called, according to Yahweh’s Purposes.
That kind of Blessing—in Yosef’s life and in ours—is always worth the pain of the process.
Yahweh, the Elohim of Isra’el, our Elohim, is “THE ONE and ONLY TRUE G-d” (Deuteronomy 6:4), and there is but One Mediator between Yahweh and humanity, Yeshua the Messiah, himself human (1Timothy 2:5).
The “Hebrew and Jewish Messiah Yeshua”, our Master, gave himself as a Ransom on behalf of ALL, Jews and non-Jews, thus providing testimony to Yahweh’s Purpose at just the right time (1 Timothy 2:6); now TRUE FREEDOM is available to EVERYONE, Jews and non-Jews, through the Messiah Yeshua’s Death and Resurrection.
“SHALOM ALEIKHEM !” to ALL, Jews and non-Jews, who belong to the “Hebrew and Jewish Messiah Yeshua”. Yahweh , the Elohim of Isra’el, our Elohim and our Father, is ALWAYS at work in our lives, and His works are ALWAYS good. May Yahweh use our worst predicaments to accomplish His Purposes, both for our good and for the sake of His Kingdom.
