TOPIC: NOT SO: THE JACOB/JOSEPH DRAMA -1
BASIC SCRIPTURE: GENESIS 48:8-19
8 And Israel beheld Joseph’s sons, and said, Who are these?
9 And Joseph said unto his father, They are my sons, whom God hath given me in this place. And he said, Bring them, I pray thee, unto me, and I will bless them.
10 Now the eyes of Israel were dim for age, so that he could not see. And he brought them near unto him; and he kissed them, and embraced them.
11 And Israel said unto Joseph, I had not thought to see thy face: and, lo, God hath shewed me also thy seed.
12 And Joseph brought them out from between his knees, and he bowed himself with his face to the earth.
13 And Joseph took them both, Ephraim in his right hand toward Israel’s left hand, and Manasseh in his left hand toward Israel’s right hand, and brought them near unto him.
14 And Israel stretched out his right hand, and laid it upon Ephraim’s head, who was the younger, and his left hand upon Manasseh’s head, guiding his hands wittingly; for Manasseh was the firstborn.
15 And he blessed Joseph, and said, God, before whom my fathers Abraham and Isaac did walk, the God which fed me all my life long unto this day,
16 The Angel which redeemed me from all evil, bless the lads; and let my name be named on them, and the name of my fathers Abraham and Isaac; and let them grow into a multitude in the midst of the earth.
17 And when Joseph saw that his father laid his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, it displeased him: and he held up his father’s hand, to remove it from Ephraim’s head unto Manasseh’s head.
18 And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father: for this is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head.
19 And his father refused, and said, I know it, my son, I know it: he also shall become a people, and he also shall be great: but truly his younger brother shall be greater than he, and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.

Vs. 18-19 says: And Joseph said unto his father, Not so, my father, for this is the firstborn; put thy right hand upon his head. And his father refused, and said, ‘I know it, my son, I know it…’ Wow! Did you get that? Joseph brought his two sons to his father for blessing. He positioned his elder son at the right hand of Jacob his father and the younger son on his left. The right hand was symbolic and represents authority, dominion, So, it was the biological right of Manasseh to be positioned and blessed at the right hand of Jacob. But there was “drama” as Jacob switched gear and CROSSED HIS HANDS! He put his right hand on Ephraim and his left on Manasseh!
I decree: God shall CROSS HIS HANDS OVER YOU as 2021 ends and 2022 begins!
He shall pass a billion to smille on you! Declare aloud 7 AMEN now! Never forget that: it is the spiritual that controls the physical and whatever is deternmined in the spiritual cannot be denied, it can only be delayed! That is why you must NEVER be discouraged, depressed or give up, because many times, its often the last key in the bunch that opens the lock.
Ephraim’s destiny could not be stopped and you are unstoppable.. (To be continued tomorrow)! Our Daily Manna 22 October 2021 – NOT SO: THE JACOB/JOSEPH DRAMA -1
