Jesus, Our Wonderful Counsellor, The Revealer of Secrets - Genesis 41

"" (Genesis 41:38).

Reader! do not overlook our great spiritual Joseph through all this.

While Pharaoh exclaims with astonishment in the view of the Spirit of God in Joseph, how ought we to admire and adore Him, who received not the Spirit of God by measure, but in Whom dwelt all the fulness of the Godhead bodily? John 3:34; Colossians 2:9.


"" (Genesis 41:40).

How sweet are those words applied to, and spoken of, Jesus!

John 15:5.


"" (Genesis 41:42).

When the Church is adorned in the robes of the Redeemer's righteousness then, like Joseph, how differently clad from the former wretchedness!

Psalm 45:9-11.


"" (Genesis 41:45).

Zaphnath-panneah, a revealer of secrets.

And is not Jesus a revealer of secrets?

Is He not at the right hand of God, to teach us His Father's will, dispensing spiritual life and food to a famished world?


"" (Genesis 41:46).

Jesus was about the same age when He entered upon His public ministry (cf. Luke 3:23).


"" (Genesis 41:55).

Sweet thought suggested here, in view of the perishing Egyptians going unto Joseph; to teach perishing sinners how to go unto Jesus.

Hebrews 12:2.
