Good Afternoon Friends,

Sunday Sermon 04/30/2023 | 10:00 am

Last week we saw how Jacob, the father of the 12 sons, settles in Egypt with their families. He meets with Pharaoh and twice blesses the monarch. We continue this chapter, Genesis 47, at verse 12:

And Joseph sustained his father, and his brethren, and all his father’s house, with bread according to the mouth of the little ones.

We also see that the famine, already a devastating calamity, worsens still. Eventually, the people of Egypt must sell everything they have, even their land, to Pharaoh in order to obtain the food they need for survival. What would this portray in the spiritual sense other than that everything of the human mind and personality is from the Lord and is designed to be ordered by His will and wisdom?

A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven
(John 3:27).

You are most welcome to join us in person or online!

We have often spoken of the way the character of Joseph in the Old Testament is a type or a representation of the Lord in the New Testament. The parallels are unmistakable. In our chapter this week, Genesis 45, we get to the climatic event where Joseph reveals himself to his brothers:

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. . . . And of His fullness we have all received, and grace for grace. . . . No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has brought Him forth to view (John 1:14-18).

What a delight when this little Orchid springs back to life! It’s the one near the corner door to the Boker Room.

Joan of Arc in the lovely gardens at John Knox Village in Pompano Beach.

Yes, another pink blossom from the same bush we’ve seen before along the walking path.

It is almost like someone sits down at a drafting table and says, “What sort of tree shall we design today? ”

This tree (and lake) is in the nearby Sun Valley East neighborhood where some of our members call home.

We spotted something moving in the water.

With the motion of its tail, the fish seemed to be creating a bowl in the sand.

“The whole visible universe is therefore nothing else than a theater that is representative of the Lord’s kingdom. And this in turn is a theater representative of the Lord Himself” Arcana Coelestia 3483.
