Era inevitabile che prima o poi scoppiasse la polemica su quanto accade da tempo a Milano, dove gruppi di cittadini organizzati scattano foto e fanno video di borseggiatrici, spesso minorenni, in azione sui mezzi di trasporto, oppure segnalandone la presenza ai passeggeri.Un sistema di deterrenza che però alcuni considerano una forma di sopruso, una sorta di giustizia fai da te che spingerebbe a commettere azioni violente e a trasformare le persone in bersagli.Vogliamo lanciare un sondaggio ai nostri ascoltatori a cui chiediamo: vanno incoraggiati i cittadini che intraprendono iniziative private per arginare l'azione dei borseggiatori sui trasporti pubblici?
In his painstaking though brief effort to provide thorough context for discernment – Jude introduces an anecdote from a well known Jewish extra-Biblical work from the 1st or 2nd century B.C.. In this ancient document, the shadowy Old Testament patriarch is quoted pronouncing final judgement on the unrepentant enemies of the Lord. Though the “Book of Enoch” is not, nor should it be, included in the canon of scripture, nevertheless, Jude confirms the validity of at least this quote and its origin cited in Jude 14b-15. In so doing, Jude has added yet another category of literary device to underscore his message of warning and equipping for the early church. He has used examples of consequences in redemptive history in verses 5-7, and argument from lesser to greater in verses 9-10, 3 personal examples of rebellion in verse 11, 6 poetic analogies in 12-13, and now he adds the prophetic testimony of a pre-flood believer in verse 14-15. One might ask how a brief document like the book of Jude containing just 25 verses can support multiple sermons. A partial answer is found in the depth of context of Jude's various references to events and persons like the exodus, celestial judgement, Sodom and Gomorrah, spiritual warfare, Cain, Balaam, and Korah. Today's text is no exception.
In Genesis 37:8 Moses records the incredulous reaction of Joseph's brothers when they hear of his dream of sheaves bowing before his own. “Are you indeed to reign over us? Or are you indeed to rule over us?” They exclaim. The record continues: “So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words.” Unbeknownst to his brothers, in our text today, the rule and reign of Joseph is firmly established and they acknowledge as much once again as they bow low before the 2nd in command of Egypt. All 11 of his brothers are present at Joseph's house and table. Joseph's plan as he interacts with his family once again after 22 years of estrangement serves as an analogy for the providential sovereignty of God. Though, for the moment, the brothers remain ignorant of the big picture – they are moved through these events to honor their father and bow in humble submission before their brother. Though the brothers were subject in part to the will of Joseph, this proved to be in their best interest as he provides for them trials leading unto repentance and salvation from famine. The brothers were graciously captive to the favor and intentions of 'the lord of the land'. In days such as our own, where radical autonomy (self-will) is valued above most everything else and where the notion of submission is universally rejected in our culture's attitudes, the account of Joseph teaches us important lessons. The narrative sets up a great question in the biography of the covenant family: which is more preferable? When the brothers lived according to their own whims inflicting resentment fueled abuse upon Joseph -or- when they submitted to the authority and mercy of Joseph now serving as grand steward of all Egypt?
The testimony of Jacob recorded in our text today prompts the question: Is a life threatening hardship any less of a tool in the hands of the Lord than glorious angelic visitation via dream? While we would surely prefer the 2nd means, it is undoubtedly the case that God has worked just as sovereignly through trial in the life of Jacob as He has through triumph. The seven year famine has struck the promised land as hard as the rest of the world and the first shipment of emergency rations is now depleted. Facing starvation once again, a return trip to the only source of food would prove still more difficult this time given the conditions laid down by the “lord of the land” on their last visit. Joseph's brothers are not to return without their father's youngest and favored son Benjamin. To make matters worse, the money they had initially paid for their first load of provisions has been mysteriously placed back in their luggage. What is going on? Jacob and his sons fear the answer to this question. They fear traveling back to Egypt despite leaving Simeon behind as pledge for their return according to the vizier's demands. Yet through all of this, God's purposes of spiritual heart surgery continue apace. The hearts of Joseph's brothers grow softer and Jacob is forced to come to terms with his shortsighted fears. He would soon learn that the covenant promises of God are reliable and powerful. The Spirit is moving Joseph's brothers unto humility, confession of sin, repentance and self sacrifice, even as He is moving Jacob to trust the Lord to provide for the covenant family and to protect his beloved.
In stanza 19 of literature's greatest acrostic song, our author continues crying out to God for salvation in spite of his enemies. He implores the Lord to rescue him from his oppressors. Each verse of his cry begins with the letter: 'Ayin' in the original Hebrew. As the Psalmist's journey continues to encounter trials and difficulties, we find that his spirit refuses to succumb to weariness or despair. In the face of still more hardship, he remains sustained and satisfied in the sufficient means supplied by His Lord and Savior. He makes good use of waiting or answered prayers by nurturing deeper love, dependence, and appreciation for the covenant revelation of his God. He identifies himself as a servant to his master willing to endure whatever is required of him even as he longs for divine intervention. This stanza contains a sense of suspense in waiting for the coming of the Lord. The prayers of the saints and the insolence of the wicked both serve to hasten that day. The day of the Lord is according to covenant terms bearing with it a great reckoning demand according to the law of God. In light of this, the singer takes refuge in the promises and steadfast love of the One True Sovereign. In light of the perspective of human weakness and God's ultimacy... the psalmist models sanctified affections for the salvation, promise, statutes, testimonies, law, commandments, and precepts of Yahweh. These are to be treasured more than gold itself. As the love for God's revelation increases, so does our intolerance for every false way.

Jude, in admonishing the church of all ages, writes to equip his sincere readers to contend for the once for all, immutable faith delivered to the saints of all ages. His brief letter nevertheless contains thorough training for the believer to discern and oppose enemies of the gospel. The scope of what we are to stand against as the Christian church includes anything and anyone that would deny or diminish the glory, majesty, dominion, and authority of Jesus Christ our Lord (25). To help us identify the enemy, our last passage featured 3 cautionary tales or warning stories that Jude references from the Old Testament. He informs us that false teachers and other enemies of Christ follow the way of Cain, Balaam's error, and Korah's rebellion. Our passage today goes further to illustrate by use of 6 analogies. He compares these scoffers and worldly people (18,19) to: hidden reefs, selfish shepherds, waterless clouds, fruitless trees, wild waves, and wandering stars. A logic book we use in homeschooling our kids: “The Fallacy Detective” covers the concept of 'analogy' at some length. The author draws a distinction between scientific and poetic analogies. The first seeks to draw an inference based on evidence, the 2nd uses comparisons as a literary device to illustrate a point. Jude utilizes six text book poetic analogies in verses 12 and 13 to relay the danger and character of wolves in sheep's clothing hiding in the assembly of believers. Here we learn, when their true character is revealed, why they are so out of place at the 'love feast' of the saints..

Joseph's brothers confess: “In truth we are guilty concerning our brother...”. How is the divinely decreed path of life's circumstances leading Joseph and his brothers at this time? This text illustrates how the grace of guilt is moving the brothers to a confession of sin, while the grace of covenant promises is leading Joseph to compassionate forgiveness. A theme surfacing in this passage that might first occur to the reader is the far reaching consequences and multi-generational nature of sin. Disturbing similarities and patterns keep emerging in these snapshots of mankind's history, reminding us of the inescapable horror of a fallen world short of sovereign intervention. From Cain and Able, to Ishmael and Isaac, to Jacob and Esau, to Joseph and his brothers... the legacy of wickedness and family strife continues. A 2nd major theme becomes clear in light of unfolding revelation to come. In Gen 42, sons are offered as collateral or “property pledged by the borrower to protect the interests of the lender”. Our passage features several examples of a life offered in the place of others. This feature of the Joseph narrative foreshadows the substitutionary mediation and sacrifice of Jesus Christ in the place of His people. Simeon is bound as collateral. Reuben offers his two sons as surety to Jacob. Jacob is reluctant to send Benjamin to Egypt, not realizing his other beloved son Joseph is ministering in this capacity. In summary this theme communicates: If the obligation is not fulfilled, the man himself will be the payment.
The various dynasties that rose from the ashes of Alexander's empire proved to be a lucrative source of income for aspiring poets. Ptolemaic Alexandria hosted some of the influential artists of the day, such as Callimachus of Cyrene and Theocritus of Syracuse. Euphorion of Chalcis would move to Seleucid Antioch, and Aratus of Soli would compose his famous Phaenomena under the auspices of Antigonus II Gonatas. These figures would re-define the art of poetry for the next several centuries, and set the standards for literary culture for the entire Hellenistic period.

Im ersten Teil unseres Programms werden wir über einige Nachrichten diskutieren, die diese Woche Schlagzeilen gemacht haben. Als Erstes werden wir den erneuerten Widerstand des türkischen Präsidenten Recep Tayyip Erdogan gegen den Beitritt Schwedens zur NATO diskutieren. Anschließend sprechen wir über politische Korruptionsskandale in der Ukraine, die Spitzenbeamte der Regierung zum Rücktritt gezwungen haben. Dann diskutieren wir über eine neue Technologie, die die Bergbauindustrie revolutionieren könnte. Forscher haben Dieselmotoren entwickelt, die hauptsächlich mit Wasserstoff betrieben werden können. Zum Abschluss des ersten Teils unseres Programms sprechen wir über die Aufforderung des unabhängigen Kontrollgremiums von Meta an Facebook und Instagram, die strikten Richtlinien zum Verbot von nackten Brustwarzen von Frauen auf ihren Plattformen zu überdenken. Das Kontrollgremium sagt, das Verbot sei diskriminierend und würde das Recht auf freie Meinungsäußerung einschränken. Weiter geht es mit dem zweiten Teil unseres Programms, „Trending in Germany“, wo wir heute über den Solidaritätsbeitrag sprechen. Die Verfassungsmäßigkeit dieser Sondersteuer wird seit Jahren diskutiert. Jetzt steht der Bundesfinanzhof vor einer Entscheidung. Und zum Schluss sprechen wir über das Internationale Congress Centrum Berlin, eines der größten Kongresszentren der Welt und eine Stilikone der Architektur. Es ist seit Jahren geschlossen, und seine Zukunft hängt nun davon ab, ob sich ein Investor findet. Türkei blockiert Schwedens Antrag auf NATO-Beitritt wegen Koranverbrennung Korruptionsskandal in der ukrainischen Regierung inmitten des Krieges Australische Forscher entwickeln Dieselmotoren für den Betrieb mit Wasserstoff Facebook und Instagram sollen das strikte Brustwarzenverbot aufheben Ist der „Soli“ noch verfassungsgemäß?

At least 20 years have passed since Joseph and his family parted ways under horrific circumstances involving human trafficking, slave1y, deception, and jealousy. During this time, Joseph, having thrived in spite of all this, has risen to rule as 2nd in command of Egypt. He has learned a new language, he has married an Egyptian, he has served in Pharaoh's court for more than 7 years, and he is responsible for stewardship policies that are the last hope for feeding the known world during a horrible famine. It is no surprise after all these years, that Joseph's siblings have no idea who he is. Joseph, on the other hand, immediately recognizes his brothers and uses his position of knowledge and political power strategically to advance the purposes of God through the covenant family. The text of Genesis 42 presents big picture Redemptive themes and practical personal applications. A family might be reminded from this text why believers pray before their meals, reading how Joseph's brothers humbly bow, knowing that their lives depend on the good graces of Egypt's grand steward, so we ought to acknowledge the Lord our great provider. A magistrate may look to the example of Joseph who did not abuse his position for personal vengeance, but exercised restraint fearing God despite prior grievances. A Husband might be instructed by the journey of the brothers to Egypt of the great lengths to which he is called to provide for his family. A theologian might be inspired by this text to recognize key features of redemptive history featured here such as wilderness provision through the anointed servant of Yahweh culminating in Christ the "Bread of Life."
Each verse of stanza 15 in the great acrostic psalm begins with the Hebrew letter 'samekh' in the original language emphasizing the sufficiency of the Word of God even through trials involving the double minded, the wicked, and evil doers. The psalmist multiplies references to the Word of God again in this section having written his 121st synonym for the ultimate source of reassurance regardless of the difficulties of life's journey. While many in our day mark the occasion of a new year with resolutions to improve their life, the psalmist, upon the occasion of trials, reaffirms his faith and commitment to the Lord and the Lord's will expressed in the scriptures -or- the law, word, commandments, promise, statutes, testimonies, and judgements of God. Verse 119 invokes separation imagery with reference to 'dross'. This is the impurity present in metals that can only be isolated and removed with heat reaching the melting point of elements like gold or silver. It makes sense in light of this that trials reach a certain intensity for more than one reason. Not only do they expose and remove the dross of double-minded wickedness, but they also test, temper, and prove genuine faith. The psalmist thus encourages the singer despite life's hardships. This stanza prepares us for intense trials by means of a power superior to any tyrant... the immortal, infallible Word of God!

For today's message, we review a summary theme of Jude's letter taking his final verse in conjunction with his reason for writing: Christians are called to contend for the faith by discerning and opposing anything that denies the glory, majesty, dominion, and authority of our Lord Jesus Christ. In addition, to appreciate the full impact of Jude's letter, it should be our goal to have his references to prior revelation as fresh in our mind as we read as the were in his 11 references 3 archetypes of wickedness which characterize the heart and intentions of the church's enemies – Cain, Balaam, and Korah. These serve as illustrations contrasting faithfulness characterized by the archangel Michael in verse 9. Here Jude illustrates the presumption of blasphemy by a rhetorical device sometimes called: 'citing the minimal case'. Referencing spiritual conflict occurring behind the scenes of Deut 34:5-6 at the burial of Moses, Jude points out... Not even the highest of angels (Michael) was willing to presumptuously assume unilateral authority to condemn the most wicked of creatures (the devil himself), but instead deferred to the will and power of God in pronouncing judgement on his enemy. Michael's testimony instructs us by illustrating what holiness demands: deference, reverence, worship and submission, because glory, majesty, dominion, and authority belong to Christ alone! Verse 10 condemns the ignorant blasphemy of the wicked who seek to exalt themselves above all else. The outline of today's sermon is drawn from verse 11 providing 3 illustrations from greater scripture to illustrate the difference between verse 9 & 10

Tying in messages from last year and in keeping with our advent theme: “the significance of incarnation events magnified from scriptural cross references”, today's message picks up where we left off at Christmas last year exploring the fulfillment of Jacob's profound dream in Genesis 28. Here the patriarch beholds heaven's staircase touching ground as angels ascend and descend upon it. Jesus Himself announces to His disciple Nathaniel (Jn 1:51) “Truly, truly I say to you, you will see heaven open and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.” Jesus proclaims His incarnation as the 'ladder' itself. Through Him, the promise of reconciliation with a holy God would be realized. True to Jesus' words, glorious and revelatory angelic activity signal heaven's stair case touching ground throughout His ministry. Last year we noted descending angels unto a priest (Zechariah), a virgin (Mary), and a son of David (Joseph) in the inaugural events of the incarnation. Jacob's ladder was a symbolic depiction of these spiritual realities and experiences. The eternal and transcendent God is interacting with His creation through the Covenant Son of David and the divine Son of God, the incarnate one, the God/man, Jesus Christ Himself! The vertical movement of angels is indicative of condescension and ascension. The ordained means of communion, reconciliation, and redemption with God. Through the course of Jesus' ministry, thus we note: the heavens opened in supernatural revelation and angelic visitation signaling supernatural activity in service to God's will for the salvation of His people. In these passages we witness Jacob's ladder in Jesus Christ.

Sunday, 18 December 2022 who was with the proconsul, Sergius Paulus, an intelligent man. This man called for Barnabas and Saul and sought to hear the word of God. Acts 13:7 Previously Bar-Jesus the false prophet was noted. He is still the subject as this verse begins, saying, “who was with the proconsul.” The word translated as proconsul, anthupatos, is introduced here. It essentially means “instead of the highest officer.” He stood as the highest official in place of the authority over him that remained in Rome. Of this position, Albert Barnes notes – “The exact accuracy of Luke in this statement is worthy of special remark. In the time when Augustus united the world under his own power, the provinces were divided into two classes. Augustus found two names which were applied to public officers in existence, one of which was henceforward inseparably blended with the imperial dignity and with military command, and the other with the authority of the senate and its civil administration. The first of these names was "Praetor"; the other was ‘Consul.' What is to be accounted for here is that the latter is the name given by Luke to Sergius Paulus, as if he derived his authority from the senate. The difficulty in the ease is this: that Augustus told the senate and the people of Rome that he would resign to them those provinces where soldiers were unnecessary to secure a peaceful administration, and that he would himself take the care and risk of the other provinces where the presence of the Roman legions would be necessary.” In the verse, the word “who” refers to Bar-Jesus. The meaning is that he had the ear of the proconsul and was connected to his court. This proconsul's name was “Sergius Paulus.” The Greek reads, Sergiō Paulō. The name Sergiō [Sergius] comes from Latin as does the second name, Paulos. This name, Paulos, is the same Greek as that of Paul, meaning “Little.” Concerning him, Vincent's Word Studies notes – “Di Cesnola relates the discovery at Soli, which, next to Salamis, was the most important city in the island, of a slab with a Greek inscription containing the name of Paulus, proconsul.” Of this man, it says he was “an intelligent man.” The word translated as “intelligent” signifies understanding derived from correlating facts. In this case, he may have been intelligent, but he was also lacking discernment as is evident by the presence of Bar-Jesus. He had been beguiled by this charlatan and so his intelligence was being frustrated by him. However, he was also open to making comparisons, thus demonstrating wisdom. That is seen in the words, “This man called for Barnabas and Saul.” The verb is an aorist participle, “having called for Barnabas and Saul.” The thought is preparing the reader for the next words. Somehow, the knowledge of these two became known to him. He heard that they were proclaiming the word of God in the synagogues of the Jews (verse 13:5) and was obviously curious about the report. This curiosity may have been heightened by the fact that Bar-Jesus attended to him, and he wanted to know if what these two had to say supported or refuted the prophecies he had heard. For whatever reason, he reached out to them “and sought to hear the word of God.” It is highly unlikely he was looking to hear words of salvation. He had a false prophet handy who was certainly feeding him sensational words to keep him spellbound. It is probable that Bar-Jesus was not unlike the description of Simon in Acts 8 – “But there was a certain man called Simon, who previously practiced sorcery in the city and astonished the people of Samaria, claiming that he was someone great, 10 to whom they all gave heed, from the least to the greatest, saying, ‘This man is the great power of God.' 11 And they heeded him because he had astonished them with his sorceries for a long time.” Acts 8:9-11 It is likely that Sergius Paulus was probably anticipating more sensational doctrines, magic tricks, and prophecies. And so, he called for these two. Life application: There is a difference between intelligence, wisdom, and faith. Each has its own place, but they are not always in harmony with one another. Intelligence is the ability to evaluate circumstances and come to conclusions. The matter may involve making money, building a clock, discerning how to sail the oceans, or whatever. Intelligence takes the surrounding information and puts it together to make things happen so that the desired outcome is realized. For example, a person may have the intelligence to build a marvelous clock that will allow others to sail the oceans while being able to determine their position with perfect accuracy. However, such a person may not have wisdom concerning his invention. He used his intelligence to make this amazing clock, but then he is duped into giving it to someone who takes the invention and gets rich off of it. He failed to use wisdom in how his intelligence had been employed. Faith is an even higher aspect than either of these. Intelligence and wisdom will only get one so far, but faith – when it is properly directed – will lead to proper use of the intelligence as well as a right directing of the wisdom. This is what will be seen when Sergius Paulus faces the power of God in the verses ahead. When you see people that are intelligent, it does not mean that they are wise. And when you see a man of wisdom, it does not mean he has properly directed faith in the employment of his wisdom. And y et, there are people that are not intelligent but who have properly directed faith. They have demonstrated wisdom and have done so by directing it toward the true Source of where all logic and wisdom resides. Pay heed to the people around you and evaluate them first and foremost based on their relationship with God as He has presented Himself in Scripture. In this, you will be able to discern who is truly the wisest of all. Lord God, Your word tells us that not many wise according to the flesh have been called. It is the humble soul who realizes his lowly state before You, regardless of intelligence or wisdom, that You find pleasing. Help us to be people of faith, rightly directing everything we are to You. Only in that will our other qualities find their true purpose. Amen.
Today we continue with our advent theme: “the significance of incarnation events magnified from scriptural cross references.” To illustrate the prophetic weight of Old Testament texts anticipating the unique nature of the Messiah to come – today's message borrows an outline from fragments of inter-testamental commentary found with the other :Dead Sea Scrolls” in the Quamran excavations of the last century. Presumably written some years before the birth of Jesus, these ancient scholars drew conclusions about the coming “Melchizedekian” Savior form passages like our text today, Scroll 11Q13 is identified with the title: “The Coming of Melchizedek” and provides a window into the insights of those who awaited the covenant promises of old and what they were looking for based on their exegesis of the scriptures. Melchizedek appears in ancient Messianic scholarship as a prophetic icon and rightly so. Ps 110 (our worship text) and Hebrews chapter 7 refer to this Old Testament priest/king as a forerunner of the anointed Christ. Today we behold the fulfillment in the Gospels of ancient believer's hopes based upon the covenant assurance of the inspired prophets of old. May we rejoice and worship Him all the more from our vantage pint here in the other side of incarnation history.

The poetic movement of Ps 148 is a descending invocation issued from the throne room of glory. As the decree travels through the realms of creation, the call to worship is echoed and heeded in each domain as the message condescends to earth. The call 1st reverberates through the upper registers of creation and then plummets to plumb the depths of the seas as it reaches earth. Then it arises again from the oceans to summon the weather systems to praise. From this vantage point, the decree falls again to the mountains, then hills, trees, beasts/livestock, and creeping things before arising to the flight of birds finally alighting upon all humanity down to the smallest child. Fascinating views from aircraft, drones, low earth orbit satellites providing sweeping overhead perspectives come to mind as one reads this song. We are compelled by the vantage point of sovereignty. We retain the cultural memory of Eden's mountain and we seek thereby in some way to be freed from the confining shackles of our banishment. This hope is foreshadowed in the imagery an prophecy of Ps 148 even as it is ultimately fulfilled in Christ (Eph 2:6). Emmanuel would be realized through incarnation and humiliation followed by exaltation. The arc of Ps 148's cosmic call to worship the Creator/Savior is mirrored in the condescending herald angels on the night of Jesus' birth and fulfilled in His incarnate work. A fitting call to worship given the miraculous occasion.

First century Jewish historian 'Philo' documents smoke still rising from the site of Sodom and Gomorrah's destruction in his day. For centuries in its geographic situation and for all time in the Word of God, Sodom and Gomorrah smolder as a type and foreshadow of judgement by eternal fire prescribed for unrepentant sin. Jude cites the event oracle of Sodom in his warnings against and condemnation of enemies of Christ's church. To appreciate the full impact of his letter, it should be our goal to have Jude's references to prior revelation as fresh in our mind as we read. Consequently, as we work our way through his book, let us refresh our understanding of Genesis 18 & 19 which record lot's rescue from these reprobate societies. Furthermore, taking the final verses in Jude as an organizing framework, we can draw a contrast between the philosophy of Sodom summarized by 4 phrases in verse 8 and the attributes of Christ proclaimed in closing doxology. From Jude we learn to contend for the faith by discerning and opposing anything that denies or seeks to diminish the glory, majesty, dominion, and authority of our Lord Jesus. To illustrate the distinction and contrast between the worldview of Sodom and the heart of the beloved saints who share a common salvation, our message today will juxtapose the citizens of Sodom with early witnesses of the incarnation. As Sodom is representative of false teachers, these shepherds illustrate the heart of true worship marking the church of Jesus Christ.

Not since the 1st pages of Genesis have we heard reference to the 'Ruach of Elohim' (The Spirit of God), until now as the Pharaoh of Egypt testifies of the character of Joseph recognizing the Spirit of God abiding in this Hebrew slave. Significant moments in scripture record awakened understanding of unlikely converts from time to time. Millennia later, a Roman centurion would exclaim of Jesus: “Truly this was the Son of God” when the rocks cried out and the dead were raised at the crucifixion of Jesus (Mat 27:52-54). What was it about Joseph that caused a pagan king to recognize the same power that hovered over the face of the waters at the creation week was dwelling in this foreign prisoner? God Himself had opened the spiritual eyes and the mouth of the king to proclaim the glories of the only one with the power to reveal His immutable Word, interpret dreams, and grant saving wisdom in the face of catastrophe. Yahweh was staging a divine intervention through His suffering servant and the message had reached all the way to the king. Joseph's testimony sets the stage for so much of God's Word and works to come. As we behold the glories of these moments in light of further revelation, may our hearts be stirred to appreciate their incredible weight and beauty.

The great theme of Joseph's life and calling is signaled by the turning point in his fortunes recorded in chapter 41 of Genesis. Here his 'messianic ascension' from the place of humiliation comes to pass suddenly & dramatically. Joseph's testimony sets the tone for more unfolding revelation to come with the appointment of Moses and ultimately, the incarnation of Jesus. In our text, Joseph receives his big break as he is summoned to interpret Pharaoh's dreams. Joseph, however, does not limit his counsel to expounding the meaning of God's Word to the king. He goes further to address the question: “what should be done?”, demonstrating his administrative skill and wisdom. Joseph advises the king on famine policy and his words are heeded. As a forerunner to Moses, his testimony must have been a great inspiration and encouragement for this servant to come generations later. Joseph's obedience demonstrated great faith. Most in his position would take every opportunity to seek the favor of Pharaoh by flattery. Recalling the fate of the baker, a fearful man would advise the king to take on the task of preparing for calamity himself, as suggesting someone else would imply a deficit in the king's abilities. In his confident posture and subsequent exaltation, Joseph appears as a forerunner of Christ who stood confidently before Pilate recognizing the governor would have no authority unless it had been given from above (Jn 19:10-11). Many other striking parallels emerge as we behold the exaltation of Joseph in the courts of Pharaoh. As was true of Moses, so with Joseph, this account points forward to the one with greater glory still (Heb 34:1-6).

John 11:25 reads: “Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live.” Verse 26 continues recording Jesus' words to Martha concerning her beloved brother Lazarus who has died: “& everyone who lives & believes in me shall never die. Do you believe this?” The occasion of Jesus question presented a profound test for Martha. Her brother has been dead for four days, right at this moment would have been the most difficult time to answer: “yes”. Nevertheless, Jesus asks her not after He raises Lazarus from the dead, but before. The situation proves to be both a test and a testimony of Martha's faith. Her conviction is all the more evident as she trusts her Messiah in life and in death. Many others in scripture could relate to this trial as well, Including the author of Ps 119. Verses 105-112 present a trial of mortal consequence where the author's oaths and vows of faithfulness to the Lord are subjected to a real stress test. Nevertheless, as we have witnessed in each stanza, he finds the covenant revelation of the Lord to be sufficient. Each verse beginning with the Hebrew letter 'nun' proclaims as much in the 14th stanza. The Word of God is sufficient for the trial of mortal affliction.

The epistle of Jude contains striking parallels to the 2nd letter of Peter. So much so that most scholars assume these two books shared source material. II Peter chapter two conveys the same concerns as Jude's letter and cites identical references to emphasize the weighty situation facing the early church. The enemies of Christ were active in the 1st century and many yet remain today. The weapons sufficient to oppose them stand ready at hand in the apostolic warnings and instructions of the New Testament. Books like these no doubt inspired the vigilance of the early church witnessed by council and creed. Obedience according to the directions of Jude served to solidify the understanding of scriptural doctrine in spite of the heresies that plagued early Christians. In His providence, God has used His enemies to strengthen the foundations of the true church in every age. In introduction it seems appropriate to reference Jude's closing devotional words. The glorious doxology of verses 24 & 25 serves as a standard to test the philosophies of any age. Let us be vigilant to ask: “Is this proposition sound?”... “How does this claim measure up?”... -or- “Does this idea stand?”... in light of the glory, majesty, dominion, and authority of Jesus Christ.

We estimate Joseph is now around 30 years of age. He has been in Egypt for some 12 years and 2 years have passed in the pit of Poitiphar's prison since he interpreted the cupbearer and baker's dreams with a plea that they remember him. In the perfect timing of God's purposes, Pharaoh's dreams jog the memory of the cupbearer and he remembers the man that God has never forgotten. There has been a warning issued from the throne room of glory and the Pharaoh is alarmed. Though he has cause for concern, he does not understand the word of God evident to him by dream. A siren has filled the consciousness of the king, but he does not know what to do and he is ignorant of its meaning. The prophet Joseph is lifted from the pit of tribulation to reveal and proclaim the Word of God to Egypt by way of the king. This would not be the only time God would raise up such a voice through His appointed and anointed servant (Ex 1:8) Many years later, another king would arise who “did not know Joseph” and once again the warning issued from heaven would be carried by a fugitive to the courts of the most powerful man on earth commanding him to submit to the authority of Yahweh or else. Common folks and world leaders are alarmed in our day. There is an inescapable sense of concern plaguing our society. Situations like this are a call for the Word of God to be proclaimed with authority. Submit to the One True Sovereign and be saved... the alternative is devastating judgement!
One might wonder what sheaves, heavenly bodies, grapes, cake baskets, cattle, and grain have in common in the life of Joseph. The answer is that all of these were the subject of dreams he encountered either by revelation or interpretation. We learn in Genesis chapter 41:1 that Joseph's troubles would continue for another 2 years, however, the events of chapter 40 would prove to be a turning point, hence their documentation in our text today. The Reformation Study Bible summarizes the significance of Joseph's life and ministry in its commentary on chapter 40 as follows: “God exalted faithful Joseph over all Egypt by giving him supernatural wisdom, the ability to interpret dreams, and skill in political economy and statesmanship. Joseph prefigured Moses at the founding of Israel, and Daniel at the end of Israel's monarchy. All three were oppressed captives who came to power in a hostile land by pitting God's wisdom against the wise of this world, displaying the superiority of God's wisdom and His rule over the Nations. They prefigure Jesus Christ, the incarnate Wisdom of God, who was raised from the dead to rule the world.” Chapter 40 features details reinforcing the calling and testimony of Joseph. This would-be prince can rely on the supernatural intervention of Yahweh alone. Not even the cupbearer who's dream as interpreted by Joseph came true, remembers to put in a good word for Joseph yet the Lord had not forgotten His servant. Though he remains in prison, God is speaking to and through His servant as a prophet to king's officials.

In John 16:33 Jesus is encouraging His disciples: “I have said these things to you that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation, but take heart; I have overcome the world.” Ps 105:16-23 summarizes the anointing of Joseph and the purposes of God in his trials and affliction. God had prescribed a testing period for His servant before His words of prophecy were fulfilled. While the Psalmist had the benefit of Joseph's full story arc to understand the plans of God for his servant, Joseph himself had no such advantage. What provided Joseph the reassurance of faith necessary to sustain him through such rigorous trials? It was the word and promise of Yahweh. Divine revelation by way of dream had revealed to Joseph that God would exalt him to rule (37:5-9). Like Esther to come, God's purposes in raising up His servant were not to glorify themselves, but to glorify God as an instrument of His saving grace. Joseph's troubles were preparing him for this very thing. This chapter repeatedly emphasizes the fact that despite the circumstances, “ The Lord was with Joseph.” how difficult it must have been during these years of Joseph's life to maintain the confidence of the Psalmist in 119:46 “I will speak of Your testimonies before kings and shall not be put to shame.” The account of Joseph mirrors the calling of believers today. We are called to endure our own trials by faith, knowing by the Word and promises of God that we are seated in heavenly places with Christ (Eph 2:6) because Christ Himself was raised from the dead and seated at the right hand of the Father far above all rule, authority, power, and dominion above every name that is named (Eph 12:20-21). For those in Christ, we partake in the Messianic ascension of Jesus Christ prefigured by the calling of Joseph unfolding in Genesis 39.
The 13th stanza in the great acrostic Psalm introduces the theme of the sufficiency of God's word for the trial of deception with the Hebrew letter 'mem'. This passage also introduces a rare word translated 'meditation' used only 3 times in the Bible, once in Job (15:4), & twice here (verses 97 & 99). The notion of meditation is promoted these days by false religions and therefore it may be helpful to highlight its Biblical context. 'Strongs' concordance associates the word with reflection, devotion, and prayer. While these spiritual disciplines certainly characterize the heart of Psalm 119's author, perhaps a fuller sense of Biblical meditation is gleaned from the form and context of this entire song. Ps 119 is structured to illustrate and reinforce the proper orientation toward divine revelation The song's length, recurring parallelisms, detail, and acrostic order all presuppose a disciplined and delighted singer. For the Christian, meditation is not suspending ones God-given reasoning faculties to place him in a spiritually suggestible state, rather it is a disciplined and delighted attentiveness to the covenant revelation of God. The Word of God, in its superior authority, sufficiency, and perfection commands a singular devotion. The Psalmist models this discipline and delight for us in this great song as we surpass 100 references to God's self disclosure of His righteousness, holiness, and truth. As we follow the author's train of thought and passion for the scriptures, may we grow in our own affections for the inerrant, infallible, sufficient, and eternal Word of God.
