Sowing and Reaping Part 3

August 29, 2023

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.

Join us in Genesis chapter 41 today. If you’ll recall, Joseph was sold into slavery by his brothers, falsely accused of rape and then thrown into jail.  But that’s not the end of the story.  As you’ll hear in a moment, Joseph would go from a prison to a palace, and become the 2nd most powerful man in the world.  Only God could do something like this.

We’re in the middle of a study in Genesis, looking at the life of Joseph.  In chapter 41 Pharoah has a couple of dreams and Joseph is about to help him interpret them.  Through it all we’ll come to a deeper understanding of God’s sovereignty!  I think you’ll be greatly encouraged as you hear how God rules and reigns in our lives, and His timing is perfect.

We pull back the curtain in the spiritual realm today on Sound Doctrine as pastor Jeff Johnson digs deeper into Daniel chapter ten.  There’s a lot we don’t know or understand in this whole area of spiritual warfare and angels, but this passage in Daniel gives us a glimpse.  And after all is said and done, I think you’ll walk away with a much better understanding of the ministry of angels and work of demons too.

When life seems to be spinning out of control, or you’re hit with roadblocks or setbacks, you might start to wonder what God is up to!  But today on Sound Doctrine we’ll get a behind-the-scenes look at how God works in our lives… even as we’re suffering!  Pastor Jeff Johnson draws attention to how God orchestrated the steps and stops of Joseph’s life.   He had everything under control.  Let’s be encouraged to trust the Lord to do the same in our lives.

We’re in Genesis chapter 40 today. Hardship and sorrow may not be our favorite teacher but it’s an effective one. God knows it and uses it in our lives!  Last time we began to hear of how God allowed Joseph to experience great sorrow.  It came in the form of being horribly mistreated, falsely accused and imprisoned. Yet God uses it to accomplish His purposes. And I should add the Lord often does that in our lives.
