THE POWER OF FORGIVENESS – Genesis 45

  • TERRIFYING - (45:3)
  • COME CLOSE - (45:4)
  • SALVATION (45:4-7)
  • GOD’S PLAN (45:8)
  • PERMANENT (50:15-21)

JOSEPH & JESUS

  • Both were rejected by their own people
  • Both were dead to their father
  • Both were raised to the highest place of honor
  • Being in their presence can be terrifying
  • Invited us to “come close” (Matthew 11:28-30)
  • Sent ahead, into “death”, to save others
  • Both were part of God’s plan
  • Neither changes their mind about forgiveness

Jesus

Set free from death and exalted to the highest place in heaven, He used His power and authority to save mankind and to set us free.
