THE GREAT DELIVERANCE OF THE LORD
This moment in time The LORD is going to help us understand a very significant event that occurred in the past but is about to occur once more as a replica of what happened in the past. Even though it is a replica, but this upcoming event is of a more profound level than the one that occurred in the past. This event that occurred in the past and is very soon going to happen again is known as: The Great Deliverance.
So we will talk about another Great Deliverance that occurred in the past as a precursor to the ultimate Great Deliverance that is very soon going to take place. So, this precursor Great Deliverance occurred when The LORD God Almighty sent His servant Joseph ahead of a remnant so that lives could be saved. So Joseph was thus sent by The LORD to carry out a Great Deliverance. If this Great Deliverance was not instituted, then lives could have not been saved. This Great Deliverance that occurred in the past is a precursor to another Great Deliverance that is very soon going to occur; what is commonly known as The Rapture of The Bride of Christ. Just as lives were saved from The Great (Severe) famine during the previous Great Deliverance, lives will indeed be saved during the upcoming Great Deliverance (Rapture) from The Great Tribulation. The LORD God Almighty will this time around send none other than His Son The LORD Jesus Christ to institute this Great Deliverance (Rapture); meaning that this upcoming Great Deliverance is to a higher level because it will be the ultimate Great Deliverance of mankind carried out by Him who was offered as the Ultimate sacrifice to save mankind. It will be important to note that Joseph was rejected just the same way The LORD Jesus Christ was also rejected. Joseph was also sacrificed by being dumped into a ditch and later being sold as a slave to merchants.
Just the same way the past Great Deliverance ushered in the people delivered into prosperity and abundance as they stayed near to him (Joseph) who was sent to deliver them, so shall it be during the upcoming Great Deliverance (The Rapture) when the bride of Christ will be ushered into Heaven to stay with Him (The LORD Jesus Christ) who was sent to deliver them.
To help us understand this past Great Deliverance that occurred; let us go to the book of Genesis 45:4-11 which states as follows: ‘“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. For two years now there has been famine in the land, and for the next five years there will be no plowing and reaping. But God sent me ahead of you to preserve for you a remnant on earth and to save your lives by a great deliverance. “So then, it was not you who sent me here, but God. He made me father to Pharaoh, lord of his entire household and ruler of all Egypt. Now hurry back to my father and say to him, ‘This is what your son Joseph says: God has made me lord of all Egypt. Come down to me; don’t delay. You shall live in the region of Goshen and be near me—you, your children and grandchildren, your flocks and herds, and all you have. I will provide for you there, because five years of famine are still to come. Otherwise you and your household and all who belong to you will become destitute.’”
We will note that Joseph was a servant of The LORD upon whom The LORD was with and the Spirit of The LORD was upon him just as stated in the book of Genesis 39:2-4 “The Lord was with Joseph so that he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did, Joseph found favor in his eyes and became his attendant. Potiphar put him in charge of his household, and he entrusted to his care everything he owned.” And also in the book of Genesis 41: 37-39 which states as follows: ‘“The plan seemed good to Pharaoh and to all his officials. So Pharaoh asked them, “Can we find anyone like this man, one in whom is the spirit of God?” Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has made all this known to you, there is no one so discerning and wise as you.”’
The upcoming Great Deliverance is well stated in the book of Daniel 12: 1-3 whereupon we find that just as in the past Great Deliverance, there will be (which is already happening at this particular point in time) a time of great distress. And so the book of Daniel 12:1-3 describes it very eloquently as follows: ‘“At that time Michael, the great prince who protects your people, will arise. There will be a time of distress such as has not happened from the beginning of nations until then. But at that time your people—everyone whose name is found written in the book—will be delivered. Multitudes who sleep in the dust of the earth will awake: some to everlasting life, others to shame and everlasting contempt. Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever.”’
It is very important to note that during this upcoming Great Deliverance just as it was in the past Great Deliverance, the best resources will be preserved and allocated to the delivered people. During the past Great Deliverance, this happened as is well stated in the book of Genesis 45:16-20 which states as follows: ‘“When the news reached Pharaoh’s palace that Joseph’s brothers had come, Pharaoh and all his officials were pleased. Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Tell your brothers, ‘Do this: Load your animals and return to the land of Canaan, and bring your father and your families back to me. I will give you the best of the land of Egypt and you can enjoy the fat of the land.’ “You are also directed to tell them, ‘Do this: Take some carts from Egypt for your children and your wives, and get your father and come. Never mind about your belongings, because the best of all Egypt will be yours.’” So shall it be during the upcoming Great Deliverance (Rapture) when a very massive celebration never seen before will take place in Heaven during the wedding supper of the lamb just as is stated in the book of Revelation 19:7 which states as follows: “Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.”
It is equally very important to note that when The Great Deliverance occurred in the past, the delivered were adorned with new clothing and rewards and this is well stated in the book of Genesis 45:22 “To each of them he gave new clothing, but to Benjamin he gave three hundred shekels of silver and five sets of clothes.” This will be the same scenario when The upcoming ultimate Great Deliverance takes place, when the delivered (The Raptured Bride of Christ) will be given Fine linen, bright and clean to wear and this is well stated in the book of Revelation 19: 6-9 ‘“Then I heard what sounded like a great multitude, like the roar of rushing waters and like loud peals of thunder, shouting: “Hallelujah! For our Lord God Almighty reigns. Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready. Fine linen, bright and clean, was given her to wear.” (Fine linen stands for the righteous acts of God’s holy people.) Then the angel said to me, “Write this: Blessed are those who are invited to the wedding supper of the Lamb!” And he added, “These are the true words of God.”’
It is also very very important to note that when The Great Deliverance is about to occur, then those who encounter The LORD and declare that He is The son of the Living God and that He is alive and is coming to reign as the King of Kings and LORD of Lords, will do so with boldness that comes from The LORD and this leads to an explosive outpour of The Holy Spirit and thus leading to Revival of souls; because The Holy Spirit will descend upon the previously downcast and hopeless spirits (souls) and thus sparking a very joyful and explosive move of The Holy Spirit. And many will declare that they are convicted that The LORD Jesus Christ is their savior and that He rose and is sitted at the right hand of The Father and will come to rescue them (His bride) through The Great Deliverance (Rapture) and take them to Heaven; and so they will long to see The LORD Jesus Christ in His full splendor. They will thus prepare the way for His coming by taking to the narrow road, the road of Repentance, Righteousness, Holiness, Truth and Complete Surrender to The LORD Jesus Christ. No wonder the spirit of Jacob revived when he heard that him (Joseph) who was sent to deliver the people was alive and was to take him (them) to a place of prosperity and abundance; and infact he (Joseph) was the king of the entire place (Egypt). This is well stated in the book of Genesis 45:25-28 which states as follows: ‘“So they went up out of Egypt and came to their father Jacob in the land of Canaan. They told him, “Joseph is still alive! In fact, he is ruler of all Egypt.” Jacob was stunned; he did not believe them. But when they told him everything Joseph had said to them, and when he saw the carts Joseph had sent to carry him back, the spirit of their father Jacob revived. And Israel said, “I’m convinced! My son Joseph is still alive. I will go and see him before I die.”’
Finally, it is also very important to note that just as it was during the period of The Great Deliverance that occurred in the past, there was to be a period of abundance and prosperity followed by a period of Great (Severe) Famine. And so moments before the upcoming Great Deliverance occurs (Rapture), there will be (there is) a period of abundant outpour of The Holy Spirit and move of The LORD and this will be followed by a period of The Great Tribulation; a moment of scarcity (spiritual and physical famine). This is well stated in the book of Genesis 41:25-32 which states as follows: ‘“Then Joseph said to Pharaoh, “The dreams of Pharaoh are one and the same. God has revealed to Pharaoh what he is about to do. The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good heads of grain are seven years; it is one and the same dream. The seven lean, ugly cows that came up afterward are seven years, and so are the seven worthless heads of grain scorched by the east wind: They are seven years of famine. “It is just as I said to Pharaoh: God has shown Pharaoh what he is about to do. Seven years of great abundance are coming throughout the land of Egypt, but seven years of famine will follow them. Then all the abundance in Egypt will be forgotten, and the famine will ravage the land. The abundance in the land will not be remembered, because the famine that follows it will be so severe. The reason the dream was given to Pharaoh in two forms is that the matter has been firmly decided by God, and God will do it soon.”’
PREPARE THE WAY FOR THE COMING OF THE LORD IN ABSOLUTE REPENTANCE, RIGHTEOUSNESS, HOLINESS, TRUTH AND COMPLETE SURRENDER TO THE LORD JESUS CHRIST (YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH). TIME IS ABSOLUTELY OVER; THE MESSIAH JESUS CHRIST IS IMMINENTLY COMING TO PICK HIS BRIDE!!!
I acknowledge today that you are LORD and savior of all mankind,
and today I have recognized my shortfall,
I repent and turn away from all sin.
Please cover me with your precious blood,
and establish your word in my life,
that I may be found in righteousness and holiness
and write my name in your book of life
and baptize me with the power of the Holy Spirit
in the mighty name of Jesus Christ.
Shalom!!! Shalom!!! Shalom!!!
