#533 - Joseph Prince - Wisdom For Holy Living - Part 3
Christ is the theme of the entire Scripture. Am I right? You read the story of Joseph, a man rejected by his brothers, loved by his father, became the bread of life to the Gentile world, married a Gentile bride. Later on, he came to his brothers. They didn't recognize him then. Second time he appeared, they recognized him. What is this, the story of a man who was persecuted? Yeah, you can learn a lot of things. The Bible is multi-layered, but above all, it's the story of Jesus.
Joseph was loved by his heavenly Father, sent with blessings to his brothers, yet they rejected him. The Jews rejected him, amen? And he became the bread of life for 2000 years. Jesus Christ, who is a Jew, has become the bread of life to the Gentile world. Predominantly, the church is made up of Gentiles, even though there are Jews, but not many. But later on, God has not forgotten Israel, amen? In the First Coming, they didn't recognize him. In his first appearance to them, they didn't recognize Joseph with all his royal regalia and eye shadow, Johnny Depp makeup, all that. But the second time he revealed himself, they recognized him. And what did he do with all the power he has? He forgave them. That's what's gonna happen when Jesus returns.
