Daily manna from the Torah by Dr Ketriel Blad

MiKets 10-2

At the end

Genesis 41:15-38

Joseph answered Pharaoh, "It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh a favorable answer."…  It is as I told Pharaoh; God has shown to Pharaoh what he is about to do… And Pharaoh said to his servants, "Can we find a man like this, in whom is the Spirit of God?"

Gen. 41:16, 28, 38 LBLA

Why did Pharaoh’s dreams repeat so much?

With the Eternal’s help, Yosef gave Pharaoh the interpretation of the dreams just as he was telling them to Yosef. He acknowledged that this ability wasn’t his, but that it came from the Almighty. Pharaoh recognized inside him that the interpretation was correct because it agreed with the impact that the Spirit of the Eternal had given to his spirit. That’s why he could also recognize the spirit in Yosef and say that there was no other man with the Spirit of God like him.

Now, what catches my attention in this narration is that not only Pharaoh dreamed two different dreams that meant the same, which means that it was fixed by the Eternal and that He would bring them about soon (v. 32), but also that both of Pharaoh’s dreams were narrated twice in the Torah. Why did HaShem want to duplicate Pharaoh’s dreams if it were enough to narrate them only once?

There is a hidden message here for the last times before the coming of the Messiah. There are several clues in the Hebrew text that show that Pharaoh’s dreams were not only to be fulfilled at that time but also in the future, in relation with the coming of the Messiah, symbolized by Yosef in a prophetic way.

Both dreams of Pharaoh’s officials speak of a codified message regarding the death of the Messiah and his resurrection three days later. There are many details in the dreams that reveal this.

 After three days when the dreams were fulfilled, two years passed until the dreams of Pharaoh. Two years can symbolize 2000, as one day can symbolize a thousand years in the Scriptures (Ps. 90:4; 2 Pet. 3:8). This gives us an indication that after the death and resurrection of the Messiah there has to be a 2000 year lapse before the great final prophetic events in the program of the Eternal for the world.

The Hebrew phrase that is at the beginning of this narration, mikets shnatayim yamim – מקץ שנתים ימים, literally reads: “at the end of a couple of years of days” – is an indication that this text speaks prophetically of the things that will happen at the end of two thousand years. The expression mikets – מקץ  – has several implications. It can indicate that things happen after a determined period of time, as in this chapter and several others (Gen. 4:3; 8:6; 16:3 etc.). It can also indicate a limited period of time at the end of a longer period of time, as in the case of the seventh year (Deut. 15:1; 31:10; 34:14).

In the Hebrew text, in verse 28, it is written that the Almighty has shown the Pharaoh what He does oseh עשה  in present tense. This detail takes us out of time placing us in a higher setting. What the Almighty does, without time and space limitations, is what the Pharaoh has been shown.

Putting these details together, and with some other evidence in the Scripture, we can come to the conclusion that what happened in the days of Yosef will happen again, two thousand years after the death and resurrection of Yeshua, son of Yosef, so that the second narration in the Torah of Pharaoh’s dreams has a reason to be there.

Dear disciple of Yeshua, prepare yourself, mentally, spiritually and physically to go through the seven years of great tribulation that will come upon the world before the coming of the Messiah, our deliverer.

According to my understanding of the Scriptures and the testimony in my spirit, the teaching of a pre-tribulation rapture of a alleged gentile church is false. The Messiah has only one congregation and it is made up by Jews and also by non-Jews that have come together with the Jews. There is no such thing as a sanctified people apart from Israel. Therefore those who live and are of the Messiah will have to go through the great tribulation as it is written in Matthew 24:21-31 and Mark 13:19-27. The rapture is mentioned in Matthew 24:31 and Mark 13:27 and will happen after the great tribulation in the end of times. The rapture will only be to the air – not further than the sun – according to 1 Thes. 4:17, with the purpose of reuniting the sanctified ones from the four corners of the earth so they can come down to be with the Messiah in the city of Yerushalayim during the thousand years of his worldwide kingdom.

May no one deceive us in any way.
