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.
37:1 Jacob lived in the land of his father’s sojournings, in the land of Canaan.
2 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. 3 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. 4 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.
