Revolution In Europe?


It feels like we’re standing on the precipice, so buckle up.  The burgeoning Yellow Vest Movement in France seems to be morphing into popular resistance.  Macron remains AWOL and hasn’t made any appearances in the last few days.

On top of that, according to the Associated Press, the movement has spread to the Netherlands and Belgium (the European Union’s seat of power).  Riots are also spontaneously developing in Greece.

With Germany’s Angela Merkel stepping down, Emmanuel Macron remains the only prominent globalist still standing.  Nationalist leaders have risen in North America (Trump), South America (Bolsonaro), Russia, China, India, Italy, Austria, Hungary, and elsewhere.

When creatures are backed into a corner they can suddenly do very dangerous things.  Surely the leaders of the U.N./E.U./globalist enterprise feel they are backed into a truly precarious corner in which they will not survive if they don’t come out swinging.

Perhaps with clever subterfuge Macron will gather power in the E.U. countries still driven by diehard continental federalists (maybe that’s what he’s doing as I write this, which might explain his present absence).  Merkel and others have been all-to-eager to support Marcon’s 10-nation alliance and his other endeavors.  On the other hand, what if he really doesn’t survive this?  We could be looking at an even bigger tumult among Europe’s despondent citizens, one that spreads across the whole continent.  It will be the perfect storm into which the man of lawlessness will arise.  A certain supernatural event will grow that storm into a typhoon.

Intriguingly, Jaco Prinsloo noticed that The Economist’s 2017 edition displayed cards on its cover reminiscent of the 1982 Illuminati Card Game.  One of those cards called “The Hermit” shows a massive protest march against globalism and the E.U.  The marchers are yellow, perhaps wearing yellow vests.  And the specific alignment of stars closely resembles the constellation Leo with a crescent moon at its tail.  The stellar alignment conceivably occurred last weekend just as the Yellow Vest Movement was exploding.

In other news:

  • Stocks continue to plummet and the Dow is within two or three hundred points of correction.  It closed down 558 points just yesterday, which was the 77th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor.  It also happened to be the first anniversary in which no survivor of the U.S.S. Arizona was present.  What a striking sign in our own country that this final generation is nearing the end of the age.
  • The Mueller Probe is nearing its end, and though I may disagree with the investigation’s conclusions (manufactured evidence, anyone?), it is not looking good for the President, his son, and a number of his close associates.
  • In Israel, despite Israeli police recommending an indictment against Netanyahu for a third time, he is actually growing stronger politically.  With Avigdor Lieberman’s resignation, Netanyahu has assumed his role, meaning he is both Prime Minister and Defense Minister.  And though Lieberman’s departure means that Netanyahu’s coalition has the bare number of seats in the Knesset to hold onto power, it looks as though Bibi will win a fifth election, making him the longest serving Prime Minister in Israeli history (that’s incredible in light of the fact that Israel’s original founding father, David Ben-Gurion, was the longest-serving up to this point, meaning Netanyahu is a bookend in the history of modern Israel).
  • Multiple news sources reported that the I.S.S. live feed was cut after a very large blue orb appeared behind the space station.  It was caught on camera for all the world to see.
  • Forbes just reported that 2019 will witness the emergence of avatars or images of a person that will in essence be their AI counterpart.  It is the clearest explanation for Revelation 13:14-15 that I can conceivably think of.
  • The Sanhedrin will be holding a special ceremony on the last day of Hanukkah (starts tomorrow and ends Monday) in which they will dedicate the Third Temple Altar and light the Golden Lampstand.  They have invited representatives of 70 nations to attend.

I’m beginning to think this concept of seven years of plenty followed by seven years of the Tribulation (famine) may hold real water.  [Speculating here: the 2014 to 2021 range would be the “plenty” and 2021 to 2028 would be the Trib.  The Trib would end precisely in the year of Israel’s 80th anniversary (max length of a generation), which also happens to be the 2,000th anniversary of the beginning of Christ’s earthly ministry, in which He declared the Jubilee.  Our Blessed Hope may transpire anytime between now and 2021 and the heavenly signs may have been 3.5 year warnings.  There is a whole lot more that could be unpacked on this, but time doesn’t permit me.  Stay tuned!] (Click to Source)

CHRISTIAN students in China are banned from speaking about their faith as a nationwide crackdown against Christianity intensifies

CHRISTIAN students in China are banned from speaking about their faith as a nationwide crackdown against religion intensifies.



Authorities in China have implemented laws prohibiting teachers and students from discussing religion or promoting their faith, a persecution watchdog has reported.

Now, those attending schools or educational institutions are not allowed to speak about Christianity, or any other religion.

Officials have warned students and teachers will face disciplinary actions if they go against the law.

Authorities have also been properly trained and given strict instructions on how to handle those who defy the legislation.

The Sichuan Provincial Ethnic and Religious Affairs committee – the body responsibly for religious affairs in Sichuan – has trained more than 100 officials to supervise churches in the providence.

Students across China have also been forced to renounce their faith, or else face disciplinary action.

In Shandong providence, local authorities demanded one student renounce her faith or else she would not receive her diploma.

A medical student in another providence said she was pressured to give up Christianity, and when she refused, authorities said she would be called in to have an “ideological discussion” in the future.

China’s new laws against religion were implemented in February, amid a nationwide crackdown against those practising their faith.

Hundreds of churches have been demolished and Bibles are now banned across the country.

Beijing has also banned public displays of the cross, tearing down Jesus posters across the country and replacing them with photos of China’s President Xi Jinping.

In October, Chinese police arrested more than 20 Christians for praying in the park.

More than 20 members of the Early Rain Covenant Church in Chengu, China, were detained by officers who found the group carrying out a worship service at a local park, persecution watchdog International Christian Concern reported.

The detained Christians were eventually released.  (Click to Source)

Your Daily Readings – Verse of the Day – Ezekiel 37:14 – Sunday 9, 2018

Ezekiel 37 King James Version (KJV)


The hand of the Lord was upon me, and carried me out in the spirit of the Lord, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full of bones,

And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.

And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I answered, O Lord God, thou knowest.

Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the Lord.

Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:

And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone.

And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.

Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord God; Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.

12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.

13 And ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I have opened your graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,

14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith the Lord.

15 The word of the Lord came again unto me, saying,

16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his companions:

17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become one in thine hand.

18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?

19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.

20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before their eyes.

21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:

22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all.

23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions: but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.

24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my statutes, and do them.

25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince for ever.

26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.

27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and they shall be my people.

28 And the heathen shall know that I the Lord do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.  King James Version (KJV) Public Domain



Torah Portion – Mikkeitz – At the end – “To Him Be the Glory” – 9 December, 2018


At the end


Genesis 41:1-44:17
1 Kings 3:15-4:1

“To Him Be the Glory”

by Mark Huey

This week’s parashah includes a very important verse that should immediately focus our attention on what God was accomplishing through the life of Joseph, when he is asked to interpret the dreams that Pharaoh has been having:

“Joseph then answered Pharaoh, saying, ‘It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh a favorable answer’” (Genesis 41:16).

Mikkeitz allows each of us, once again, to witness the sovereign will of the Creator take its course. The sons of Jacob/Israel are once more called upon to be the principal actors in a real life drama that has been preserved for our instruction. Here, the Holy One displays His omniscient will over the affairs of the world. The Lord has a very special assignment for the people of the covenants, and He guarantees that everything that He desires goes according to His script, by deliberately selecting the cast and arranging the unique circumstances. It is abundantly clear from the record left to us in the Scriptures, that our Father wants us to learn not only from the mistakes committed by the twelve sons of Jacob/Israel—but also from the instances when proper decisions were made by them.

The protagonist in this drama is none other than the noble Joseph, who has risen from the depths of ignominious incarceration. Now positioned as the vice regent of Egypt, he finally has a golden opportunity to return the same evil upon his brothers that he received some twenty years earlier when he was sold into slavery. But something is uniquely merciful about the character of Joseph. Even though he paid a costly price for his brother’s evil intentions, he does not harbor any residual bitterness toward them. Instead, he simply takes the circumstances to teach them an indelible lesson. What was it about Joseph that allowed him to extend such grace? What can modern-day Believers learn from Joseph’s example?

Dreamer of Dreams

Joseph learned as a youth that the Creator God is real. From the stories that he certainly heard from his father, he concluded that He was a personal Deity who was intimately concerned about His chosen people and the promises they had been given. His experiences with dreams certainly had an impact on his life. For years, sequestered in dank prisons, he had plenty of time to relive and analyze not only these dreams, but also the consequences of sharing them with his brothers and father. Then, this dreamer of dreams discovered in confinement that he was able to interpret others’ dreams. But before listening to the dreams of others, he immediately proclaims to the cupbearer and baker that interpretations of dreams belong to his God:

“Then they said to him, ‘We have had a dream and there is no one to interpret it.’ Then Joseph said to them, ‘Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell it to me, please’” (Genesis 40:8).

Joseph gives credit where credit is due. He tells the wine steward and the baker that it is only in the power of the Creator to interpret dreams. But he does have the faith to ask about the dreams, and the Lord intervenes. Joseph supernaturally receives and repeats the interpretation without any regard to the pleasant or unpleasant report (Genesis 40:9-23). What he soon discovers is that he is understanding a voice which is giving him the interpretation.

The critical thing that Joseph learned during his years in prison is that dreams and the interpretation of them can cause things to happen. For another two years (Genesis 41:1), he ponders the accuracy of his interpretation until an opportunity to interpret another dream comes forth.

Pharaoh’s Dreams

The next time Joseph is called upon to interpret something, the dreams are from the supreme ruler of Egypt, the Pharaoh himself. Now, the gifted young servant of the prison’s captain of the guard is summoned to hear and interpret the dreams. He already knew that Pharaoh has exacting demands upon his servants. Remember that the baker had been hanged for no stated reason. How was he, a foreign prisoner, going to be received in a society where the Egyptians disdained Semites? Without hesitation, upon being asked whether he can once again interpret a dream (Genesis 41:15), he responds with this concise statement:

“Joseph then answered Pharaoh, saying, ‘It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh a favorable answer’” (Genesis 41:16).

Joseph’s first response was to give all the glory to the God of his fathers. Joseph knew that the ability to interpret dreams was not something he could just conjure up with some mystical magic. God was pleased by Joseph’s attitude and he was given the proper interpretation of Pharaoh’s dreams. At the conclusion of the interpretations an interesting discourse follows:

“‘Now as for the repeating of the dream to Pharaoh twice, it means that the matter is determined by God, and God will quickly bring it about. Now let Pharaoh look for a man discerning and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt. Let Pharaoh take action to appoint overseers in charge of the land, and let him exact a fifth of the produce of the land of Egypt in the seven years of abundance. Then let them gather all the food of these good years that are coming, and store up the grain for food in the cities under Pharaoh’s authority, and let them guard it. Let the food become as a reserve for the land for the seven years of famine which will occur in the land of Egypt, so that the land will not perish during the famine.’ Now the proposal seemed good to Pharaoh and to all his servants. Then Pharaoh said to his servants, ‘Can we find a man like this, in whom is a divine spirit?’ So Pharaoh said to Joseph, ‘Since God has informed you of all this, there is no one so discerning and wise as you are. You shall be over my house, and according to your command all my people shall do homage; only in the throne I will be greater than you.’ Pharaoh said to Joseph, ‘See, I have set you over all the land of Egypt.’ Then Pharaoh took off his signet ring from his hand and put it on Joseph’s hand, and clothed him in garments of fine linen and put the gold necklace around his neck. He had him ride in his second chariot; and they proclaimed before him, ‘Bow the knee!’ And he set him over all the land of Egypt. Moreover, Pharaoh said to Joseph, ‘Though I am Pharaoh, yet without your permission no one shall raise his hand or foot in all the land of Egypt’” (Genesis 41:32-44).

At this critical juncture, Joseph felt the liberty to go beyond just the interpretation of Pharaoh’s dream by giving him the solution to contend with the forecasted famine. Something prompted Joseph to go beyond just a strict interpretation. Is it possible that God had allowed Joseph to mature to a point in his walk with Him, that he was able to be a confident voice for Him before world leaders? It is clear from the resulting actions of Pharaoh that the solutions suggested were things that Joseph had been groomed to manage. He had been responsible for Potiphar’s home and his possessions, and had done an admirable job of managing his estate. Next, he had been put in charge of the prisoners during his tenure in jail. Apparently, he was again given favor and the affairs of the prison were maintained in proper order.

Now with the wisdom implanted by the Lord, Joseph is positioned to be elevated to the second highest political rank in Egyptian society (Genesis 41:38-49). This is a remarkable rise to power—simply with the blessings of the Most High working through a unique opportunity to interpret dreams! What should we learn from the example of Joseph’s life?

Dreams and Gifts

Perhaps you are gifted with some spiritual endowment that has been freely given to you by the absolute grace of the Creator. Perhaps you have the gift of prophecy, healing, discernment, wisdom, knowledge, or any of the other gifts that our Father freely bestows upon His children for His work to be accomplished (1 Corinthians 12:28-31; Ephesians 4:11-13). You know what the gift is and have seen it operate through you at times. Just how do you operate with a recognizable supernatural gift? Your challenge is to follow the lead of Joseph.

First, remember that the gift has been given to you for purposes beyond your own personal aggrandizement. Instead, whenever you sense a spiritual gift working through you, be cautioned to give whatever glory is due to the Lord for His work to be accomplished through you. Too many times, men and women given gifts of prophecy or healing take advantage of their gifting and begin to use it for manipulative purposes. Many times this results in people who eventually bring dishonor to our Heavenly Father. Too frequently this impedes, rather than advances, His Kingdom work.

Hopefully, we can all take the life of Joseph and his humble example as the proper way to handle the spiritual giftings that are granted by the Lord to each one of us. We must use such spiritual gifts for the purposes of glorifying God, and ultimately drawing people unto Him. If you are straying in the other direction, beware!

Cry out to Him for mercy! Let Him receive the glory that He alone deserves! Ask the Lord to give you the same understanding that Joseph received. Perhaps as you give God the glory for the gifting you have received, He will give you increased responsibility in handling additional tasks in His Kingdom as others are impacted with the message of the gospel.

On the other hand, the Lord may decide to allow you to take credit for what He is doing through you. Then your reward may be here on Earth, rather than through eternity. Remember this reality: we all get the choice of when and by whom we want to be rewarded. Do you want the recognition of mere mortals, for a short season? Or would you prefer eternal favor? It takes faith to choose the latter option. Perhaps like Joseph, with some time in seclusion seeking the Father, we might be prepared to make the right choices. If nothing else, quietness before the Lord can certainly enhance our ability to more clearly hear His voice. Perhaps that is one of the reasons He has given us a day to rest and focus upon Him. Consider these questions as you ponder on Mikkeitz this Shabbat…   (Click to Source)

Are the illuminati REAL? Do the Illuminati have links with the Bilderberg Group?

THE illuminati is a secret group which theorists believe is plotting a New World Order but does the group actually exist and does it have links with the Bilderberg Group?

The illuminati does exist and was set up in the 18th century by Adam Weishaupt. The group began as a secret society initially with five members and was named the Order of Illuminati. The secret society wanted to free themselves from the church and restrictions of the government.

Adam Weishaupt was a German thinker and an anti-clerical professor who opposed the Roman Catholic Church’s power over Science and philosophy and believed the monarch and church were repressing freedom of thought.

They were convinced religious ideas were no longer an adequate belief system to govern modern societies.

Weishaupt decided to start another form of “illumination”, a set of ideas and practices that could be applied to radically change the way European states were run.

He started the new secret society, the Order of the Illuminati, on the night of May 1, 1776.


The Illuminati was started by German thinker Adam Weishaupt (Image: Getty )

The first Illuminati members met to found the order in which they would be governed in a forest near Ingolstadt, Germany.

Weishaput wrote the society offered freedom “from all religious prejudices; cultivates the social virtues; and animates them by a great, a feasible, and speedy prospect of universal happiness.”

To achieve this, it was necessary to create “a state of liberty and moral equality, freed from the obstacles which subordination, rank and riches, continually throw in our way.”

The secret society did not stay secret for very long and people started speculating about the mission of the group.

Chris Hodapp, the co-author of Conspiracy Theories and Secret Societies for Dummies, says one of the defining features of the early Illuminati members is they did not trust anyone over the age of 30, because they said they were too set in their ways.

The Illuminati was stamped out by a government crackdown on secret societies in the late 1780s.

But rumours said it continued to survive as an underground organisation to this day.

Do the Illuminati have links with the Bilderberg Group?

The secretive Bilderberg Group meet annually for a meeting where they discuss a range of topics.

Some of the most powerful figures in politics, finance, journalism, academia meet for the annual meeting.

Whatever happens in the meeting stays within the group as participants are banned from revealing what was discussed and details are rarely made public.

The group was founded in 1954 and designed to foster dialogue between Europe and North America.


Rumours say despite the group being stamped out it still exists in modern day underground (Image: Getty )

But conspiracy theorists claim the members are plotting the New World Order and its aim is global domination.

Theorists have claimed secret groups like the Bilberberg Group and Skull and Bones were front organisations for the Illuminati.

However, this theory has not officially been proved true and is purely speculation. (Click to Source)

Your Daily Readings – Verse of the Day – Philippians 4:4 – Saturday December 8, 2018


Therefore, my brethren dearly beloved and longed for, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, my dearly beloved.

I beseech Euodias, and beseech Syntyche, that they be of the same mind in the Lord.

And I intreat thee also, true yokefellow, help those women which laboured with me in the gospel, with Clement also, and with other my fellow labourers, whose names are in the book of life.

Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice.

Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord is at hand.

Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.

And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

Those things, which ye have both learned, and received, and heard, and seen in me, do: and the God of peace shall be with you.

10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.

11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.

12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.

13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.

15 Now ye Philippians know also, that in the beginning of the gospel, when I departed from Macedonia, no church communicated with me as concerning giving and receiving, but ye only.

16 For even in Thessalonica ye sent once and again unto my necessity.

17 Not because I desire a gift: but I desire fruit that may abound to your account.

18 But I have all, and abound: I am full, having received of Epaphroditus the things which were sent from you, an odour of a sweet smell, a sacrifice acceptable, well pleasing to God.

19 But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.

20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

21 Salute every saint in Christ Jesus. The brethren which are with me greet you.

22 All the saints salute you, chiefly they that are of Caesar’s household.

23 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

‘Your time is up’ South Africa sets date for white farmer land grabs – March 2019

A SOUTH Africa has set a date for when its much-criticised land expropriations can begin after a politician declared: “Your time is up, white people”.

By Rachel O’Donoghue / 

The country’s National Assembly approved a proposal to change the constitution to make the so-called reforms legal in a vote of 183 to 77.

This paves the way for land to be taken from farmers without giving any kind of compensation.

And now lawmakers have agreed to set up a committee that will write and introduce a new bill for land expropriations.

A deadline of the end of March next year for the committee to present its first report to parliament has also been agreed.

But there were heated scenes in the House when politicians clashed over the plans.

According to local reports, Economic Freedom Fighters MP Hlengiwe Mkhaliphi argued land grabs must go ahead as she declared: “Your time is up, white people”.

This came as the IFP MP Mkhuleko Hlengwa said the plans undermine South Africa’s position as a democratic state.

According to the Daily Maverick, he said: “To achieve real and effective land reform is (possible) under the existing Constitution, not your (ANC) populist agenda.

Torah Commentary – Mikketz (At the end) – Making of a Man – SCRIPTURES FOR December 8, 2018

Torah Commentary
Mikketz (At the end)


Genesis 41:1-44:17
1 Kings 3:15-4:1
Acts 7:9-16Making of a Man

Joseph’s life has been one of incredible twists and turns. In his dark prison cell, he has had a great deal of time to think through his winding and tumultuous journey. His list of, “If I could do that over!” has been etched into his mind, and maybe even the prison wall. He is not the same little boy he was when he had his first dream. He is not the same young man he was when he was sold into slavery. Joseph has matured to the place where he can now be the tool Yah will use to bring forth the next steps in building His family, Israel.

Joseph probably shuttered when he heard Pharaoh had a dream. Up until this time, dreams and Joseph have not turned out too well. The difference in the outcome will be one simple, but complex word: Humility.

Humility is what Joseph has learned because of his time in prison. It is humility, which has prepared him for his time in the palace. Without this trait, he is destined to think he can live his life in charge of his own destiny; but with it, he knows Who is truly in charge. It is a trait we find in all the “Greats” of Scripture.

So what is humility? Webster defines it as, “a modest or low view of one’s own importance; humbleness.” Is this really what humility is? I would like to put my own two shekels into this one.

Biblical humility is knowing you are important in the plans and working of HaShem, and also knowing you, by yourself, have no way of bringing those plans about. Humility is seeing you are fearfully and wonderfully made, are created for and with great potential and purpose, while simultaneously knowing you do not possess the strength on your own to get to where you were born to go.

We are, in a way, like the sleekest and fastest race car ever built. We have been designed with great care, each nut and bolt handmade for purpose, but without gas in our tank we are just a showpiece, which can never leave the starting line.

Joseph was beginning to fully understand an important Truth: His life was not just a hodgepodge of other people’s decisions; but rather, his life from his mother’s womb had been designed for a specific purpose. This caused him to stand in awe of the thoughts and wonders of One far greater than he. He possessed maybe the greatest possession a man or woman can ever possess: Biblical humility.

It was humility, which would allow him to look at his brothers with compassion and love. It was humility, which caused him to look to the heavens and ask for wisdom in how to deal with them. Humility would lead him through the maze called, “Life in Egypt.”

Approximately twenty-five percent of the Book of Genesis is devoted to Joseph. Within the pages of his life is more prophecy than you or I can ever fully comprehend. Possibly the greatest prophecy we can focus on is the one which teaches us that, without humility, we will never be able to fulfill our purpose in life. Without humility we are destined to live in a prison of exile. It is humility, which will unlock the cell door and put us on the road to final redemption. It is humility, which will allow our steps of redemption to be ordered by Yah. It is humility, which will cause us to understand our lives are much more than “all about us.” Humility teaches us The Truth: Our lives are about glorifying Him and serving others. (Click to Source)
