"To MIKE CURTIS RE JOSEPH & JESUS"
Hi:> > There are over 24 parallels between Joseph and Jesus. I like the one where Joseph is given a gentile bride just before the 7 years of famine and I believe it is parallel to Jesus taking the church/bride.
Just food for thought.How about Joseph bringing his family down to be with him in Egypt in the second year of famine (Tribulation)?In the Preview of the Rapture, Rev 1:9-11 says, "I John, who also am your brother, and companion IN TRIBULATION, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos (meaning mortal), for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ. I was (lit., became) in the Spirit on the Lord's day (Resurrection Day, Sunday), and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet, Saying, I am Alpha and Omega, the first and the last".
