Humble Yourself Part 2

September 4, 2023

Don’t you love those shows where someone totally transforms a car, house, or even a person’s appearance?  We marvel at the before and after.  Today on Sound Doctrine we’ll discover that God specializes in transforming people.  He did it for Judah and Jacob and He can do it in you too!

We’ve all seen the news footage of the horrendous war that’s taking place between Russia and the Ukraine.  But there’s another war going on right now, that you might not be aware of or know very little about.  It’s in the spiritual realm.  And the best way to fight is on our knees in prayer.  We’ll tell you all about it on this edition of Sound Doctrine.  Pastor Jeff will be finishing Daniel chapter ten here in part two of Spiritual Warfare and Angels.

Our teacher Jeff Johnson heads back to the book of Genesis today. One of the more apparent lessons to be found in Genesis is how God can bring about change in a life that seems unchangeable.  This demonstrates God’s power - His grace-  and is greatly encouraging in a day when the love of many grows cold.  Today we’ll hear not only of how Judah is changed, but also of Jacob having a change of heart too.

Today on Sound Doctrine we’ll learn a thing or two from a man who was leaning to his own understanding and the result was fear!  How many of us have been down that path?  We’ll be encouraged to walk by faith instead of sight today as we revisit the story of Joseph in Genesis chapter 42.

As you carefully study the Old Testament you can’t help but see Jesus all over the place!  One such place is in the story of Joseph.   We’ll see another brilliant picture of our Lord as the story develops.  In Genesis chapter forty-two Joseph and his brothers are reunited.  Keep in mind that while Joseph recognized them, they didn’t recognize Joseph at this point in time.

Today we get right back into Genesis and the story of Joseph.  Whatever we sow, we’re going to reap!  Sow to the spirit, we reap blessings.  But sow to the flesh and expect some terrible consequences.  And we’ll see this play out between Joseph and his brothers as we again focus on Genesis chapter 42.

When someone does you wrong, is the first thought that runs through your mind, “Oooh they’re gonna get it!”  After all that Joseph’s brothers did to him, some would say, it would be well within his right to seek vengeance.  But he didn’t.  As you’ll hear today, he had a heart of reconciliation.  And we should too as followers of Christ.

Have you ever felt like your prayers were just bouncing off the ceiling, or not really going anywhere?  Today on Sound Doctrine we take you into the spiritual realm, and discover that there’s more going on than meets the eye. While we’re praying, there’s a war going on, sometimes leading to a delay!  So we’re to keep praying just as Daniel did.

If you’ll recall in previous studies we saw Joseph’s brothers did him dirty, selling him into slavery. But now today the tables have turned.  There’s a famine in the land and everyone is coming to Egypt, where Joseph is now in charge.  He’s about to encounter his brothers.  How will Joseph handle this juicy situation? Let’s find out together on Sound Doctrine.

We all go through tough times and when we do we can so easily grow discouraged, bitter and angry.  But the believer in Christ can hold on to this truth… God is working it all out for good as trust in Him.  The story of Joseph reminds us of that.  And today on Sound Doctrine you’ll hear of how God prepared him and delivered him too.  You can’t help but see God’s mighty hand in Joseph’s life.

Who doesn’t love a good rags to riches story!  Well we’ve got a good one for you today on Sound Doctrine.  It features Joseph, who was rejected by his brothers, sold into slavery, then thrown into prison.  After 13 years of tough times, he became the #2 man over all of Egypt!  Pastor Jeff Johnson will show us how God often prepares and delivers us too.
