Summary: What makes Jesus weep
THE SEVEN WEEPINGS OF JOSEPH!!!
WHAT MAKES JESUS WEEP TODAY?Acts 13:38-46
38: Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that through this man is preached unto you the forgiveness of sins:(THE WORD REPENT MEANS METANOIR WHICH MEANS YOU USED TO BELIEVE THAT YOU COULD SAVE YOURSELF BY WORKS (NOW YOU DON'T) NOW YOU MUST BELIEVE THAT JESUS ALONE CAN SAVE YOU WITHOUT ANY WORKS WHATSOEVER AMEN)
MARTIN LUTHER SAID EVERYDAY I MUST PREACH THE GOSPEL TO SOMEBODY LEST I FORGET.
39 And by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law of Moses.
40 Beware therefore, lest that come upon you, which is spoken of in the prophets;
41 Behold, ye despisers, and wonder, and perish: for I work a work in your days, a work which ye shall in no wise believe, though a man declare it unto you.
And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; 6 And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness; 7 And to godliness brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness charity.
8 For if these things be in you, and abound
(1)they make you that ye shall neither be barren nor unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
(2)But he that lacketh these things is blind,
(3)and cannot see afar off,
(4)and hath forgotten that he was
purged from his old sins.
THE FIRST TIME JOSEPH WEPT:
JOSEPH WEPT WHEN HE SAW HIS BROTHERS AFTER SO LONG AND ALSO HE HEARD THEM SPEAK IN HIS MOTHERS TONGUE.(HEBREW)
And Reuben answered them, saying, Spake I not unto you, saying, Do not sin against the child; and ye would not hear? therefore, behold, also his blood is required.
23 And they knew not that Joseph understood them; for he spake unto them by an interpreter.
24 And he turned himself about from them, and wept; and returned to them again, and communed with them, and took from them Simeon, and bound him before their eyes.
THE SECOND TIME JOSEPH WEPT
WHEN HE SAW HIS BABY BROTHER BENJAMIN HIS MOTHERS SON
26: And when Joseph came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand into the house, and bowed themselves to him to the earth.
27 And he asked them of their welfare, and said, Is your father well, the old man of whom ye spake? Is he yet alive?
28 And they answered, Thy servant our father is in good health, he is yet alive. And they bowed down their heads, and made obeisance.
29 And he lifted up his eyes, and saw his brother Benjamin, his mother's son, and said, Is this your younger brother, of whom ye spake unto me?
And he said, God be gracious unto thee, my son.
30 And Joseph made haste; for his bowels did yearn upon his brother: and he sought where to weep; and he entered into his chamber, and wept there.
31 And he washed his face, and went out, and refrained himself, and said, Set on bread.
THE THIRD TIME JOSEPH WEPT
WHEN HE REVEALED HIMSELF TO HIS BROTHERS
Now therefore when I come to thy servant my father, and the lad be not with us; seeing that his life is bound up in the lad's life;
