The Egyptian Joseph – The Two become ONE

freehebrewandgreekbible2in1

Genesis 50:20

King James Version (KJV)

20 But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.

Genesis 45

King James Version (KJV)

45 Then Joseph could not refrain himself before all them that stood by him; and he cried, Cause every man to go out from me. And there stood no man with him, while Joseph made himself known unto his brethren.

And he wept aloud: and the Egyptians and the house of Pharaoh heard.

And Joseph said unto his brethren, I am Joseph; doth my father yet live? And his brethren could not answer him; for they were troubled at his presence.

And Joseph said unto his brethren, Come near to me, I pray you. And they came near. And he said, I am Joseph your brother, whom ye sold into Egypt.

Now therefore be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life.

For these two years hath the famine been in the land: and yet there are five years, in the which there shall neither be earing nor harvest.

And God sent me before you to preserve you a posterity in the earth, and to save your lives by a great deliverance.

The Hidden Ones – The Elect, The Chosen Ones

Romans 8:29-30

King James Version (KJV)

29 For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.

30 Moreover whom he did predestinate, them he also called: and whom he called, them he also justified: and whom he justified, them he also glorified.

Shoreshim (pronounced shor-e-sheem) is Hebrew for “roots.” We have chosen this word to characterize this ministry for several reasons.

Roots give life to the tree. 
Without an adequate root system to supply water and nutrients, a tree would slowly wither and die. If water is a picture of the Word of God (Ephesians 5:26), then roots are symbolic of the heart by which the life-blood of the believer is pumped throughout the Body. We feel that the times in which we live dictate that men and women must determine to learn, live and speak the truth as never before. Our very lives may one day depend upon it.

Roots are the anchor of the tree.
While the roots are not the most attractive part of the tree, they are nevertheless the most critical. As we know, truth polarizes; there is no “in-between” and, sadly, not everyone wants to hear the truth (2 Timothy 4:3-4). Yet declaring, hearing and internalizing the truth of God’s Word provides the means by which believers can mature into a tree “planted by the rivers of water that brings forth its fruit in its season” (Psalm 1:3). We must be rooted in the Word so that we will not be “blown about by every wind of doctrine” (Ephesians 4:14).

If we are to be “one” we must return to the roots of our faith. 
The diversity and uniqueness of the hundreds of branches that can comprise one tree only become “one” (the trunk) as they move back toward the roots of the tree. With so many versions of Christianity and the varying interpretations of Scripture muddying the theological waters, the need to return to our roots and to understand the eternal validity of God’s Torah has become obvious. This need is, in fact, evidence of the “restoration of all things” that the Scripture has predicted “since the world began” (Acts 3:21).
