The Rescuer, Part 1

Our greatest need for rescue is from the very wrath of God Himself because of the sin that is in each of us, and for that we need a special kind of rescuer — One who will satisfy God’s demand for perfection and humility and love. A rescuer who will ultimately give Himself up as our substitute on the cross in order to shed His own blood to satisfy God’s demand for justice because of sin.

In a new “prequel” mini-series to our upcoming study on Exodus, Pastor Sonny explains how the Old Testament story of Joseph is a pointer to God’s ultimate plan of salvation through the cross of Christ.

Genesis 37:1–4

37:1 Jacob lived in the land of his father’s sojournings, in the land of Canaan.

These are the generations of Jacob.

Joseph, being seventeen years old, was pasturing the flock with his brothers. He was a boy with the sons of Bilhah and Zilpah, his father’s wives. And Joseph brought a bad report of them to their father. Now Israel loved Joseph more than any other of his sons, because he was the son of his old age. And he made him a robe of many colors. But when his brothers saw that their father loved him more than all his brothers, they hated him and could not speak peacefully to him.
