Sunrise on Temple Mount in Jerusalem; Back to Previous Devotion

January 16 - Morning

"He said to them, 'Listen to this dream I had: We were binding sheaves of grain out in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves gathered around mine and bowed down to it.'

His brothers said to him, 'Do you intend to reign over us? Will you actually rule us?' And they hated him all the more because of his dream and what he had said.

Then he had another dream, and he told it to his brothers. 'Listen,' he said, 'I had another dream,
and this time the sun and moon and eleven stars 
were bowing down to me.' ”

- Genesis 37:6-9

God's Plan Will Be Accomplished    

When Pharaoh or the Egyptians in prison had a dream they needed an interpretation to understand the meaning of the dream. But, in Joseph’s family, the mere telling the dream was enough for a full, unified understanding of the dream’s symbolic meaning.

Interestingly, Genesis 37:11 says:

“His brothers were jealous of him, but his father kept the matter in mind.”

Joseph’s father, Jacob, could also have been skeptical and angry, but Jacob has learned what his sons have not learned: Just watch and see…it either will or won’t be true, but either way man’s hand in this will be limited and God’s plan will be accomplished. I just don’t want to get caught in the cross fire resisting God!

It seems that things might have went better, or at least differently, if Joseph had not succumbed to the desire to share these dreams with his family.

Something to Ponder??

In an attempt to confront a spiritless, formal church in 155 AD Montanus began to stress the Second Coming of Christ and taught that inspiration by the Holy Spirit was continuous and immediately occurring through him. He began to teach that the Kingdom of God would appear in Pepuza, Phrygia. His followers became strict ascetics fasting often and eating only dry, cold food. Two well-known women, Prisca and Maximilla, prophesied for him while he preached with great emotion and the waving of a handkerchief.  The Montanist hoped not to die in bed, but to die as martyrs. Montanus predicted that, “After me there will be no prophecy, but the End will come.” At the Council of Constantinople in 381 they were condemned as heretics and encouraged to be looked at as a pagan religion.

Hebrew and Greek Word Study   Facts and Information
Chazon (Hb) - Vision (Eng) - chazon is the Hebrew noun that means a “vision” that is either in an ecstatic condition or a vision in the night. Chazon is also refers to “revelation,” “oracle,” and “prophecy.” Daniel and Ezekiel received chazon and needed angelic assistance in understanding. Chazon is used 11x in Daniel, 7x in Ezekiel and 35x in the whole Old Testament.  

In Acts 13:7 Paul met with Sergius Paulus who Luke says was the Governor on the island of Cyprus. Skeptics and critics have doubted the historical accuracy of Luke's record in Acts, but six things proved the accuracy of Luke's document.

First, historical evidence shows that after 22 BC Cyprus was a senatorial province governed by a proconsul
(Gr - anthupatos).

Second, an inscription found in northern Cyprus from the time of Luke and Paul says in a blue marble slab:

Third, an additional inscription with the family name of "Sergii Paulli" was found in 1912 in Pisidain Antioch. This family had large estates near Pisidian Antioch, which was Paul's next stop after Cyprus.
(Details here. image here)

Four, a boundary stone was found in Rome in 1887 which had been set up by Emperor Claudius Caesar listing the names of leaders in charge of supervision of the Tiber River. L. Sergius Paullus is mentioned again:


Fifth, Pliny the Elder refers to Sergius Paulus in his writings on "Natural History," while also mentioning that the island of Cyprus was filled with praticioners of sorcery.
(Details here.)

Sixth, in 1877 an inscription from around 54 AD that includes the phrase "the proconsul Paulus" was found north of Paphos in the city of Silo. (The full inscription is here.)

Confession to Action   Facts and Information
Do I trust God is woking in my life?
Do I consider God to be an active force each day?
I will work and do right, but I will also trust that God is working and doing right each day of my life.
  "To man belong the plans of the heart, but from the Lord comes the reply
of the tongue."
- Provebs 16:1
