Alien Resurrection - Psalm 105, Study 9

Alien Resurrection - Psalm 105, Study 9


Alien ? does mean I'm a martian ?

No far from it "Martian" implies a "planet"

Alien is such in that we are on a journey and far from Home

We are on our way to another place

We are Aliens in that the "World" is to be "alien" to us

1 Corinthians 14:20 NLT

Dear brothers and sisters, don't be childish in your understanding of these things. Be innocent as babies when it comes to evil, but be mature in understanding matters of this kind.


Remember that the "pharisees" meant "set apart"

We also are set apart for the purposes of God

...............

   
A CHRISTIAN COUNTRY

Separated and few in number such is the "Narrow Gate"

Owned and paid for by "The Blood Of The Lamb"

Sojourners of Faith, believing in Faith and being in relationship we work out our own
salvation being saved yet to be saved and do as the Word says being "tested by THE WORD"

Holdddd on , did'nt you say that believing , faith and relationship may not be enough?

Listen.....the message is....that some may seem to be the same, they may appear to have a form
of godliness, they may seem to have faith, we assume they have relationship and they may even
have all these things , but do not be deceived

We do NOT live in a  Christian country

...................................................................

SOJOURNERS

And so we go to Psalm 105:12-13

Such a tiny small number of people ?

Far from the numbers relating to the sand on the shore or the stars in the sky ?

Therir number so few that they could not inhabit any place or take control of any borders..

They could be counted and numbered, a small group of people and the Lord special possession

Deuteronomy 26:18

And the LORD hath avouched thee this day to be his peculiar people


O how those onlookers could have mocked when the promise of a multitude seemed to be
desolate and empty


To whom he gives the kingdom of heaven, are a little flock; they are only a few that find the
way to eternal life,
Luke 12:32.


......................

Now we will go back in time as God prepares Joseph to enter Egypt and as God calls a famine
on the land , now once more the "SEED" becomes "LIFE"   

   
I,ll plop todays bible verse in here from the 21-01-2012

Galatians 6:7-8

“Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life.

   
GROWTH AND PERISHING

Matthew 13:12

Whoever has will be given more, and he will have an abundance. Whoever does not
have, even what he has will be taken from him.


Now as we continue to look at Psalm 105, remember to keep Matthew 13:12 in mind and the
parable of the seed and as we go on you will see the giving and taking...as one grows and
another perishes

...................................................................................

TESTING

Psalm 105:16-22

16 He called down famine on the land and destroyed all their supplies of food;
17 and he sent a man before them— Joseph, sold as a slave.

18 They bruised his feet with shackles, his neck was put in irons,
19 till what he foretold came to pass, till the word of the LORD proved him true.

20 The king sent and released him, the ruler of peoples set him free.
21 He made him master of his household, ruler over all he possessed,
22 to instruct his princes as he pleased and teach his elders wisdom.

................................

Now here we have a very brief reflection of the story of Joseph,

This testing that Joseph went through is..........

Verse 19

till the word of the LORD proved him true.
this is the Lords testing


In other translations it may read : the word of the Lord [w] tested him.

[w] is
Judges 7:4 4 And the Lord said to Gideon, “The people are still too many. Take them
down to the water, and I will test them for you there, and anyone of whom I say to you,
‘This one shall go with you,’ shall go with you, and anyone of whom I say to you, ‘This
one shall not go with you,’ shall not go.


Gill's Exposition

the word of the Lord tried him: it tried his faith and patience before it was accomplished; and
when it was, it purged him and purified him, as silver in a furnace,

........................................................   

DREAMS

Genesis 37:5Joseph had a dream, and when he told it to his brothers, they hated him all the more.
6He said to them, “Listen to this dream I had: 7We were binding sheaves of grain out
in the field when suddenly my sheaf rose and stood upright, while your sheaves
gathered around mine and bowed down to it.”


Here Joseph shared the dreams given by God to his brothers of course
who else would he share the dreams with but his closest family

Someone once said "If God wanted us to watch videos He would have displayed the videos
in the sky for all to see"

Well one wonders whyy God does not display dreams in the sky for all to see

No instead He shares the dreams with Joseph because this is the "Secret Kingdom"

www.christianfaithwalk.com/home/christia...alm-105-study-4#4351

and "The Hidden Bible"

www.christianfaithwalk.com/home/christia...alm-105-study-8#4446

The Spirit chooses and tests a person

1 Cor 12:11 NIV All these are the work of one and the same Spirit, and he gives them
to each one, just as he determines.


Now God choose Joseph and gave him the dreams , this is not a corporate message but
a singular message to one person who is God chosen

So many times people believe that if the Spirit speaks then it must be to all and not
to one person

But this is not true

Neither is it true that the one person cannot share his or her messages/pictures/dreams/
prophetic or any other message with others

Remember that this is the Kingdom in which God speaks individually as well as to
the Body of believers, this is a personal and corporate walk

In this walk we can be alienated as being "strange" or "Different"

Not only that but you can find yourself put into that dark place and treated like
"An Alien"

.................................
ALIEN RESURRECTION

Now we know the Joseph was thrown down a well and left for dead and we know that he
was sold to slave traders and then ended up in chains

Here was Joseph in an alien place on his own and undergoing the testing

Note it says "The Word tested him" depending on which translation you use

Psalm 105:19 NLT

Until the time came to fulfill his dreams, the LORD tested Joseph's character.


.................................

This may have been some two years or more that Joseph was imprisoned

It was almost the case that Joseph was forgotten even by the cupbearer

Here we have the perfect picture Of Jesus on the Cross with the one on the right and
the one on the left, one finding new life, the other..........

Well the baker was to be hung on a tree

18 "This is what it means," Joseph said. "The three baskets are three days.

19 Within three days Pharaoh will lift off your head and hang you on a tree


.................................



O sorry I misssed a bit out

.
Genesis 40:18-19

18 "This is what it means," Joseph said. "The three baskets are three days.

19 Within three days Pharaoh will lift off your head and hang you on a tree

Then birds will come and peck away at your flesh."

   
RESURRECTED FROM SITUATIONS

Now we all know this story of Joseph,

It was not Joseph ...but rather God

Joseph was a vessel hence the testing

But God brought about the events, the timing, the people and the favour

As we go onto the next Study

Keep in mind the giving and the taking away

Keep in mind that it is through Gods Strength and not ours

Keep in mind the parable of the sower and the seed

..............................

PRACTICAL APPLICATION IN MY LIFE

1.

I am to be a vessel , open and waiting and ready with an attitude of expectancy

2.

I must not look at the present situation but realise that in all things God works His purposes even if there seems to be a famine around me or in my own life, God can use the famine days and years

3.

Even though the darkness is all around me I must realise that God has not forsaken me

4.

I must hold onto those words of the Lord even though I myself may be tried and tested by the Word

.............................

Lord God In Jesus name let me have a heart that will use what is given that more will be given ....let me live in Your Resurrection power , to be resurrected from the situations that surround me that I might fly like the eagle .......In Jesus name amen
