God is calling the “Josephs” from the pit to the palace. These individuals have been mistreated for no reason and have suffered at the hands of those who should have loved them. As a result, these “Josephs” have been deprived of the blessings that are rightfully theirs.
Do you remember Joseph in the Bible? His brothers were jealous of him
because Joseph basically told them that God would bless him above them.
Now, in order to satisfy the jealousy in their hearts, the brothers sold Joseph into slavery far away and told their father that he was dead.
While in bondage God blessed Joseph by causing his “master” set him as a leader over his household. The Bible explains, “2 The Lord was with Joseph, and he became a successful man, and he was in the house of his Egyptian master. 3 His master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord caused all that he did to succeed in his hands. 4 So Joseph found favor in his sight and attended him, and he made him overseer of his house and put him in charge of all that he had… (Genesis 39:2-4)
Unfortunately, his “master’s” wife accused him of sexually violating her because Joseph would not become intimate with her. As a result, he was sentenced to prison, but even in prison Joseph found favor with the warden.
The Bible says, “21 But the Lord was with Joseph and showed him steadfast love and gave him favor in the sight of the keeper of the prison.
22 And the keeper of the prison put Joseph in charge of all the prisoners who were in the prison. Whatever was done there, he was the one who did it. 23 The keeper of the prison paid no attention to anything that was in Joseph's charge, because the Lord was with him. And whatever he did, the Lord made it succeed” (Genesis 39:21-23).
This young man wasted a lot of time, paying for crimes he did not commit. Nevertheless, he held on to his relationship with God.
As expected, God eventually delivered Joseph from bondage. Here is what happened.
9 Then the chief cupbearer said to Pharaoh, “I remember my offenses today. 10 When Pharaoh was angry with his servants and put me and the chief baker in custody in the house of the captain of the guard, 11 we dreamed on the same night, he and I, each having a dream with its own interpretation.
12 A young Hebrew was there with us, a servant of the captain of the guard. When we told him, he interpreted our dreams to us, giving an interpretation to each man according to his dream. 13 And as he interpreted to us, so it came about. I was restored to my office, and the baker was hanged.”
14 Then Pharaoh sent and called Joseph, and they quickly brought him out of the pit. And when he had shaved himself and changed his clothes, he came in before Pharaoh. 15 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I have had a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it. I have heard it said of you that when you hear a dream you can interpret it.” 16 Joseph answered Pharaoh, “It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh a favorable answer.” (Genesis 41:9-16)
After Joseph interpreted the dream and offered Pharaoh wise counsel as to how to handle the upcoming situation, Pharaoh placed him as second in command.
37 This proposal pleased Pharaoh and all his servants… You shall be over my house, and all my people shall order themselves as you command.[d]Only as regards the throne will I be greater than you.” 41 And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.”
42 Then Pharaoh took his signet ring from his hand and put it on Joseph's hand, and clothed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain about his neck. (Genesis 41:37-42)
God is putting our names in the mouths of those who have the ability to bless us. Get ready to wash and redress yourself in a beautiful garment because God is preparing you to stand before the “king”.
At that time, you will be given authority to fulfill what God has already predestined for you to accomplish.
The season has shifted. Prison doors are open. Now is the day of Jubilee through the Blood of Jesus. Debts are canceled, properties are restored, and slaves are liberated. All the Josephs, ARISE!
