Gen. 42 – Get Off Your Butt!

Genesis 42 – Get Off Your Butt!

Dear family and friends, Genesis 42 begins with Jacob’s Spiritual revelation, ‘There is corn in Egypt. Why was his revelation so important? The land of Canaan, where Jacob, his sons, grandchildren, servants, and livestock lived, was experiencing a severe famine. Jacob was a spiritual man. His children were spiritual people. They needed provisions. Food was available in Egypt. Jacob saw there was food in Egypt. Jacob’s sons saw there was food in Egypt. Jacob wanted to know why his sons were standing around with a finger up their butt. They had responsibilities! His sons had wives, children, servants, and livestock to feed. They were in a famine. Times were lean! They were wasting away! What happened to their motivation? Why were they standing around doing nothing? Why were they twiddling their thumbs?

וַיַּרְא

Vah Yah Rih – meaning ‘He saw.’

ו6 י10 ר200 א1 = 217

רָזִי

Raw Zee – meaning ‘leanness.’

ר200 ז7 י10 = 217

Now, we turn our attention to the last Word in Verse One. How many Hebrew Words are in verse one? How many of Jacob’s sons were living with him in his camp? The answer to both questions is eleven. Please notice the 11th Word, תִּתְרָאוּ – Tee Tih Raw Voo – meaning ‘see.’ There is a double mystical phenomenon to the eleventh Word. The usual spelling is ראה. The Letter ת is written twice to רָאָה Raw Aw. Adding The Letter ת Tav twice to the beginning of רָאָה Raw Aw is a double sign that informs us of both Truth and Perfection. The brothers had been living a lie, a deception, a cover-up ever since they sold Joseph into slavery.

וַיַּרְא יַעֲקֹב כִּי יֶשׁ־שֶׁבֶר בְּמִצְרָיִם וַיֹּאמֶר יַעֲקֹב לְבָנָיו לָמָּה תִּתְרָאוּ: ס

Genesis 42.1

And Jacob saw! Because – There was corn in Egypt. And he, Jacob said to his sons, ‘How is it that you see [and do nothing]?

After what they did it to Joseph, Their purity was soiled, They perpetrated a falsehood continually for 22 years. They were the source of much pain and suffering for their father and Joseph. Our world is soiled by deception, lies, and multiple coverups. Our souls are lean! Like Jacob’s sons, we see dishonesty, harmful and illegal acts. We smell the immoral stench. It’s time to take action!! WE MUST ACT!!

Genesis 42.2

Jacob said, ‘Behold, I have heard that there is grain for sale in Egypt; get down there, and buy us some from there; that we may live, and not die’.

In other words, we must take action if we want a good, pure, wholesome place to live and thrive for us and those we love. May our hearts be touched and motivated by the Truth!!
