Genesis 45:1-4: Revelation.

“Then Joseph could no longer control himself before all his attendants, and he cried out, ‘Make everyone leave my presence!’ So there was no one with Joseph when he made himself known to his brothers. And he wept so loudly that the Egyptians heard him, and Pharaoh’s household heard about it. Joseph said to his brothers, ‘I am Joseph! Is my father still living?’ But his brothers were not able to answer him, because they were terrified at his presence. Then Joseph said to his brothers, ‘Come close to me.’ When they had done so, he said, ‘I am your brother Joseph, the one you sold into Egypt! And now, do not be distressed and do not be angry with yourselves for selling me here, because it was to save lives that God sent me ahead of you.” NIV

What a day it will be when the Lord Jesus reveals Himself to His brethren, the people of Israel. There is coming a day when ‘’All Israel will be saved’’ (Romans 11:26). We may not fully understand all that Paul writes in Romans chapters 9-11, but he seems to indicate that one day there will be a large-scale turning of the Jews to their Messiah, and what a blessing that will be for the whole world, when He brings them close to Himself. We can prayerfully and eagerly look for that day, with joy.

PRAYER: Lord, I pray for the peace of Jerusalem.
