Summary: Before you reach your dream or vision these are the four Coats you will have to wear
THE FOUR COATS THAT JOSEPH HAD TO WEAR!!!!
In the book of genesis we have the story of Joseph which takes up 13 chapters 25 percent of this book.Now when one book gives you so much about one person that means this persons life has a profound meaning. Joseph life is a parallel of our lord and SAVIOUR Jesus Christ.There are over a hundred similiarities between Joseph and Jesus let me give you a few
1: Joseph was loved by the his father.
Gen 37 v 3: Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.
Jesus was beloved by the Father.
2: Joseph was stripped of his coat.
Gen 37 v 23: And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him;
Jesus was stripped of His coat.
3: Joseph becomes a servant.
17: And she spake unto him according to these words, saying, The Hebrew servant, which thou hast brought unto us, came in unto me to mock me:
18: And it came to pass, as I lifted up my voice and cried, that he left his garment with me, and fled out.
Jesus became a servant.
4: Joseph was tempted and did not sin.
Jesus was tempted and did not sin.
5: Joseph was falsely accused.
Jesus was falsely accused.
JOSEPH was the son that had the MULTI-COLoured dream coat. But few people know that Joseph had four coats to wear before he reached his ultimate goal or dream. Before you reach your dream or vision these are the four Coats you will have to wear.
1: THE COAT OF FAVOUR.
3: Now Israel loved Joseph more than all his children, because he was the son of his old age: and he made him a coat of many colours.
4 And when his brethren saw that their father loved him more than all his brethren, they hated him, and could not speak peaceably unto him.
The first coat Joseph had to wear was ThE coat of FAVOUR given to him by his farther,as the favorite son but his brothers striped him of that coat.Then he had to wear the coat of a servant.HAVING A COAT OF MANY COLOURS ON US IS ONE THING ,but it doesnt exempt us from going through trials and temptations.
REMEMBER GOD STILL HAS TO DEVELOPE OUR CHARACTER WITHIN US.
23: And it came to pass, when Joseph was come unto his brethren, that they stript Joseph out of his coat, his coat of many colours that was on him;
24 And they took him, and cast him into a pit: and the pit was empty, there was no water in it.
Remember Jesus he ask for water but they gave him vineger instead.
2: The coat of a servant.
Genesis 39: 2-6:
2: And the Lord was with Joseph, and he was a prosperous man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian.
3 And his master saw that the Lord was with him, and that the Lord made all that he did to prosper in his hand.
4 And Joseph found grace in his sight, and he served him: and he made him overseer over his house, and all that he had he put into his hand. 5 And it came to pass from the time that he had made him overseer in his house, and over all that he had, that the Lord blessed the Egyptian's house for Joseph's sake; and the blessing of the Lord was upon all that he had in the house, and in the field.
