If you recall in my About Page I said that God is Spirit. The Spiritual existence of God will be the first study of many to follow, God willing.
God gave us the proof of His Word through the Holy Spirit and His chosen inspired authors. No document ever comes close to the power and truth of the inspired word of God.
I will not bore you with proofs. That is the work of God and the Holy Spirit. I will rely on God’s revelation of his Word to you.
God has promised, His word will never return to him void.
He also tells us through his inspired authors, to… Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit which is the word of God and pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints. Ephesians 6:17-18.
ln this study the key words GOD and SPIRIT will be searched for in both the Old and New Testaments.
My emphasis and my conclusions as to the lesson being taught will be expounded on by the usage of the keywords GOD and SPIRIT in the currant passage of scripture for Passage 1.
(Joseph Interprets Pharaoh’s dream Genesis 41 I recommend reading this entire chapter)
38 So Pharaoh asked them, “Can we find anyone like this man, (Joseph) one in whom is the spirit of God?” 39 Then Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since God has made all this known to you, there is no one so discerning and wise as you. 40 You shall be in charge of my palace, and all my people are to submit to your orders. Only with respect to the throne will I be greater than you.”
My Concluding remark to Passage 1
Pharaoh attributes this miraculous interpretation to God and rightly concludes:Only a mortal possessed by the Spirit of God; could have interpreted his dream. He also may have considered, that only God, could reveal such a wise course of action to stave off the starvation that such a long lasting famine would cause.
