If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat the good of the land: (Isaiah 1:19)
ARE YOU WILLING AND OBEDIENT?
I'm in my Goshen!!! No plague will come near me!!!!
Exodus 8:22 states,
"'But on that day I will deal differently with the land of Goshen, where my people live; no swarms of flies will be there, so that you will know that I, the LORD, am in this land."
Goshen is the BEST land (Gen 46:31).
God is about to give His children the best of the land so we can build, plant, and raise our families!
The Egyptians hated the shepherds. That hatred led the children of God to the BEST land, Goshen!
1 Joseph went and told Pharaoh, “My father and brothers, with their flocks and herds and everything they own, have come from the land of Canaan and are now in Goshen.”
2He chose five of his brothers and presented them before Pharaoh.
3Pharaoh asked the brothers, “What is your occupation?” “Your servants are shepherds,” they replied to Pharaoh, “just as our fathers were.”
4 They also said to him, “We have come to live here for a while, because the famine is severe in Canaan and your servants’ flocks have no pasture. SO NOW, PLEASE LET YOUR SERVANTS SETTLE IN GOSHEN.”
5 Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Your father and your brothers have come to you,
6 and the land of Egypt is before you; settle your father and your brothers in the BEST PART OF THE LAND.
LET THEM LIVE IN GOSHEN. And if you know of any among them with special ability, put them in charge of my own livestock.”
7 Then Joseph brought his father Jacob in and presented him before Pharaoh. After Jacob blessed Pharaoh,
8 Pharaoh asked him, “How old are you?”
9 And Jacob said to Pharaoh, “The years of my pilgrimage are a hundred and thirty.
My years have been few and difficult, and they do not equal the years of the pilgrimage of my fathers.”
10 Then Jacob blessed Pharaoh and went out from his presence.
11 So Joseph settled his father and his brothers in Egypt and gave them property in the best part of the land, the district of Rameses, as Pharaoh directed.
12 Joseph also provided his father and his brothers and all his father’s household with food, according to the number of their children.
