Joseph in the Old Testament was brought before Pharaoh King of Egypt. Pharaoh had experienced a strange dream, and the king had heard that this young Jewish man was gifted in interpreting dreams… we read of this in Genesis 41.
After Joseph had been blessed by God with the interpretation along with some action items to take in preparation for the forthcoming prophesied famine… we are told in Genesis 41:38… Then Pharaoh said to his servants, “Can we find a man like this, in whom is a divine spirit?
When we are faithful to God… reading, practicing and living out His word… pagans will see that as light and it will be noticed… perhaps even leading them to a saving knowledge of Jesus the Christ… as we are told in John 8:32… Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life. Perhaps, by being a light even pagans who consider themselves as god… as Pharaoh did, will see and notice that Divine Spirit within us..
And saints we live in a day and age, when the pagans of this world… in our own country, consider themselves to be god… for example: earlier this month New York Governor Andrew Cuomo signed into law a bill that would legalize abortions up to birth in New York state.
This is evil. New York Politician’s and the Governor have put themselves in the place of God… allowing the murder of innocent children right up to birth. Evil.
We must stand fast in this dark, pagan world… being flashlights… so that the world will not walk in darkness. Pray… Proclaim… and Practice the Word of God… every day!
