Holy Bible

Jacob was on his deathbed and prophesied over his sons.

When Reuben too Jacob’s concubine, he lost the good opinion of his father.

Levi and Simeon always worked together. The had violent ungoverned tempers.

The lion became the symbol of the tribe of Judah.

After God had rejected Saul (tribe of Benjamin) as king over Israel, He placed David (tribe of Judah) on the throne. The throne of Israel was to belong to Judah until the Messiah came.

Zebulun’s tribe was to dwell by the sea along the northern coast of Israel.

Dan’s group produced the judges.

Gad’s tribe produced the troops (soldiers).

Asher was the baker for the tribes.

Joseph could enjoy the fruit of his godly life. God wants our lives to overflow with blessings and to share His goodness with others.

Joseph had various trials to endure:

  • Trials  of doubt and scorn sent when he tried to share his dreams (Genesis 37:8).
  • Trials of hatred because the ten older brothers knew he was their father’s favorite (Genesis 37:4).
  • Trials of treachery when his brothers decided to kill him (Genesis 37:18).
  • Trials of temptation as Potiphar’s wife tried to seduce him (Genesis 39:7)
  • Trials of false accusation as she accused him of trying to attack her (Genesis 39:13-18).
  • Trials of forgetfulness when the butler forgot Joseph for 2 years (Genesis 40:23).

It takes more strength to hold back from taking revenge when it’s in our power to do it. All these trials were brought to Joseph by his brothers and he never took revenge on them. The Father covered him and gave him His strength to hold back.

Jacob wanted to be buried with his fathers back in the Promise Land.
