'BEFORE THE MOUNTAINS WERE BROUGHT FORTH, OR EVER THOU HADST FORMED THE EARTH AND THE WORLD, FROM EVERLASTING TO EVERLASTING THOU ART GOD.' [KJV PSALM 90:2]

Thank you for returning during this week of July 20-25, 2020 as we proceed with the posts of our final section of the Book of Genesis, Genesis Chapters 36-50. audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Because the Biblical Record is quite extensive and detailed, no further 'introductions' are really necessary.
We will take appropriate 'pauses' during the posting of this 15-Chapter Section, for we are not in a 'horse-race'.
Remember we pray for the Almighty to 'open the eyes of our understanding', as we 'come into His Presence', 'reading' His Living Word, the Holy Bible. [See prayer on Introduction Post A-PM, February 25, 2020; Post 1-AM, March 2, 2020, and Post 3-AM, March 4, 2020.]
Further, I hope y0u take the time to review all the chapters so that you will see how each generation was treated by the Lord, as each generation learned to 'know the Living God' for themselves. This is so very important, for each of us today.
And, today, our new outline, and the 'next' 'descendant' God has chosen for 'the Promise to Abraham', 'Joseph':
Now, verbatim, Genesis Chapter 46 audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Only one post for keeping the chapter together for the best in the 'context' of this fast moving chapter.
God's promises to Jacob. (1-4) Jacob and his family go to Egypt. (5-27) Joseph meets his father and his brethren. (28-34) audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
God's promises to Jacob. (1-4)audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
1. 'And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac.
2 And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I.
3 And he said, I am God, the God of thy father: fear not to go down into Egypt; for I will there make of thee a great nation:
4 I will go down with thee into Egypt; and I will also surely bring thee up again: and Joseph shall put his hand upon thine eyes.'
[Please note. This, my friends, begins the 400 Year Sojourn of the 'children of Israel' in Egypt until the 'Exodus' when the 'iniquity of the Amorites is full' in the Promised Land, the 'land of Canaan'. God keeps His promises. We must 'wait'. [See Genesis Chapter 15]audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Jacob and his family go to Egypt. (5-27) audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
5 'And Jacob rose up from Beersheba: and the sons of Israel carried Jacob their father, and their little ones, and their wives, in the wagons which Pharaoh had sent to carry him.
6 And they took their cattle, and their goods, which they had gotten in the land of Canaan, and came into Egypt, Jacob, and all his seed with him:
7 His sons, and his sons' sons with him, his daughters, and his sons' daughters, and all his seed brought he with him into Egypt.
8 And these are the names of the children of Israel, which came into Egypt, Jacob and his sons: Reuben, Jacob's firstborn.
9 And the sons of Reuben; Hanoch, and Phallu, and Hezron, and Carmi.
10 And the sons of Simeon; Jemuel, and Jamin, and Ohad, and Jachin, and Zohar, and Shaul the son of a Canaanitish woman.
11 And the sons of Levi; Gershon, Kohath, and Merari.
12 And the sons of Judah; Er, and Onan, and Shelah, and Pharez, and Zerah: but Er and Onan died in the land of Canaan. And the sons of Pharez were Hezron and Hamul.
13 And the sons of Issachar; Tola, and Phuvah, and Job, and Shimron.
14 And the sons of Zebulun; Sered, and Elon, and Jahleel.
15 These be the sons of Leah, which she bare unto Jacob in Padanaram, with his daughter Dinah: all the souls of his sons and his daughters were thirty and three.
16 And the sons of Gad; Ziphion, and Haggi, Shuni, and Ezbon, Eri, and Arodi, and Areli.
17 And the sons of Asher; Jimnah, and Ishuah, and Isui, and Beriah, and Serah their sister: and the sons of Beriah; Heber, and Malchiel.
18 These are the sons of Zilpah, whom Laban gave to Leah his daughter, and these she bare unto Jacob, even sixteen souls.
19 The sons of Rachel Jacob's wife; Joseph, and Benjamin.
20 And unto Joseph in the land of Egypt were born Manasseh and Ephraim, which Asenath the daughter of Potipherah priest of On bare unto him.
21 And the sons of Benjamin were Belah, and Becher, and Ashbel, Gera, and Naaman, Ehi, and Rosh, Muppim, and Huppim, and Ard.
22 These are the sons of Rachel, which were born to Jacob: all the souls were fourteen.
23 And the sons of Dan; Hushim.
24 And the sons of Naphtali; Jahzeel, and Guni, and Jezer, and Shillem.
25 These are the sons of Bilhah, which Laban gave unto Rachel his daughter, and she bare these unto Jacob: all the souls were seven.
26 All the souls that came with Jacob into Egypt, which came out of his loins, besides Jacob's sons' wives, all the souls were threescore and six;
27 And the sons of Joseph, which were born him in Egypt, were two souls: all the souls of the house of Jacob, which came into Egypt, were threescore and ten.'
[From these, by the power of God, shall come - 'a great nation'. Genesis 12:2] audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
Joseph meets his father and his brethren. (28-34) audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html
28 'And he sent Judah before him unto Joseph, to direct his face unto Goshen; and they came into the land of Goshen.
29 And Joseph made ready his chariot, and went up to meet Israel his father, to Goshen, and presented himself unto him; and he fell on his neck, and wept on his neck a good while.
30 And Israel said unto Joseph, Now let me die, since I have seen thy face, because thou art yet alive.
31 And Joseph said unto his brethren, and unto his father's house, I will go up, and shew Pharaoh, and say unto him, My brethren, and my father's house, which were in the land of Canaan, are come unto me;
32 And the men are shepherds, for their trade hath been to feed cattle; and they have brought their flocks, and their herds, and all that they have.
33 And it shall come to pass, when Pharaoh shall call you, and shall say, What is your occupation?
34 'That ye shall say, Thy servants' trade hath been about cattle from our youth even until now, both we, and also our fathers: that ye may dwell in the land of Goshen; for every shepherd is an abomination unto the Egyptians.' Amen. Amen.
A Worthy Note, for such times as these. [Esther 4:14; 2 Timothy 3:1-13]Commentary by Matthew Henry, 1710.
'Time was, when they were contriving to be rid of him; now he is contriving to settle them to their advantage; this is rendering good for evil. He would have them live by themselves, in the land of Goshen, which lay nearest to Canaan. Shepherds were an abomination to the Egyptians. Yet Joseph would have them not ashamed to own this as their occupation before Pharaoh. He might have procured places for them at court or in the army. But such preferments would have exposed them to the envy of the Egyptians, and might have tempted them to forget Canaan and the promise made unto their fathers.
An honest calling is no disgrace, nor ought we to account it so, but rather reckon it a shame to be idle, or to have nothing to do. It is generally best for people to abide in the callings they have been bred to and used to. Whatever employment and condition God in his providence has allotted for us, let us suit ourselves to it, satisfy ourselves with it, and not mind high things. It is better to be the credit of a mean post, than the shame of a high one. If we wish to destroy our souls, or the souls of our children, then let us seek for ourselves, and for them, great things; but if not, it becomes us, having food and raiment, therewith to be content.'
This, my friends is 'equal opportunity'; this is God-given; NOT 'EQUAL OUTCOME'!! Amen. Amen.
On Monday, July 27, 2020, as the Lord wills, we will post Chapter 47, after which we shall take a short pause for review, before posting Chapters 48-50, during the week of August 4, 2020. Thank you for returning. Amen. Amen.
