Scripture: Genesis 37:3-10
The first thing that I seen in this passage was Jacob being referred to Israel. Jacob means trickster, and he was renamed after he wrestled with God and was renamed “Israel” which means to strive with God. The wrestling scene can be found in Genesis 32:25. Israel favored Joseph over his other children and made him a coat of many colours. This reminds me of the promise God made to Noah and all of mankind in Genesis 9 with the rainbow which symbolized not what what the LGBT community has made it out to be which is one of many ways they have twisted the truth of God and exchanged it for a lie but, what the rainbow really symbolizes is God promise to never end the world again by way of flood. By Israel giving Joseph the coat of many colours, it made his brothers really angry and full of hatred and Jealousy. Joseph than proceeded to tell them about two dreams he had and that only fueled the fire of hatred with in their hearts for him because of how they interpreted it. God sometimes reveals his will to us prophetically through dreams. In Acts 2:17 it says “And it shall come to pass in the last days, saith God, I will pout out my Spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams”
In the book of James 2:1-4 it gives us a command to follow about Church conduct and not showing favortism to those who come to the service. This can cause division, envy, and jealousy inside the Church. Usually, Satan won’t destroy a Church from the outside in but, from the inside out. How can a kingdom divided against itself stand? We need to set our foundation on Christ. The world will laugh and mock the dreams of His kingdom but, don’t allow that to cause doubt or strife but, dream on. Wherever there is no vision the people will perish. We need to be a Church that desires and yerns for a 21st century pentecost and cries out abba father. If we let the nightmares of this world invade our dreams, than our visions will never be seen.
Pappa, let me be of those who see visions and let be a dreamer. I want to see your kingdom come. Keep me from showing favoritsm and bind us in a Spirit of unity. My dream is to see the walking dead amongst us to awake and experience life to the fullness of your Spirit. Lord, let it rain down your Spirit into the hearts of man and let revival take place in this land. I pray this in Jesus name, Amen.
