"And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him."



"And Joseph knew his brethren, but they knew not him."
Genesis 42:8.


This morning our desires went forth for growth in our acquaintance with the Lord Jesus; it may be well to-night to consider a kindred topic, namely, our heavenly Joseph's knowledge of us. 

This was most blessedly perfect long before we had the slightest knowledge of Him. "His eyes beheld our substance, yet being imperfect, and in His book all our members were written, when as yet there was none of them." 


Before we had a being in the world we had a being in His heart. When we were enemies to Him, He knew us, our misery, our madness, and our wickedness. 


When we wept bitterly in despairing repentance, and viewed Him only as a judge and a ruler, He viewed us as His brethren well beloved, and His bowels yearned towards us. He never mistook His chosen, but always beheld them as objects of His infinite affection. 


"The Lord knoweth them that are His," is as true of the prodigals who are feeding swine as of the children who sit at the table.


But, alas! we knew not our royal Brother, and out of this ignorance grew a host of sins. 

We withheld our hearts from Him, and allowed Him no entrance to our love. We mistrusted Him, and gave no credit to His words.


 We rebelled against Him, and paid Him no loving homage. The Sun of Righteousness shone forth, and we could not see Him. 


Heaven came down to earth, and earth perceived it not. Let God be praised, those days are over with us; yet even now it is but little that we know of Jesus compared with what He knows of us.


 We have but begun to study Him, but He knoweth us altogether. It is a blessed circumstance that the ignorance is not on His side, for then it would be a hopeless case for us. He will not say to us, "I never knew you," but He will confess our names in the day of His appearing, and meanwhile will manifest Himself to us as He doth not unto the world.

If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ, you can be accepted in to his kingdom.
 I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted. 

"PRAYER" 
Marvelous God Almighty, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin, I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free. I confess that He is the son of God. I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven. In the precious name of Jesus I ask. Amen..
