Often "One for Israel" has some really interesting nuggets in those passages that are so familiar. This one is about the time Joseph spent in prison with the baker and the cupbearer. I will often read the story and feel sorry for Joseph because he's innocent, wrongly imprisoned, and he gets forgotten. But why is this scene there? Why the details that are given? Because our God is great and sovereign over every detail.
In this seemingly small point in Joseph’s life our great God is showing us all that his plan on the day of Yeshua’s crucifixion was detailed long before the crucifixion took place, to the point that He announced beforehand those two men who were crucified alongside Yeshua and who represent the choice in front of us all.
Is 26:3 You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on You, because he trusts in You.
Mind blown. I've never noticed those uncanny parallels before. God is so amazing, and what's more, the WHOLE Old Testament points to Christ.
"For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures."
EnochWalked: "On Thursday, Glick arrived near the compound in Jerusalem’s Old City and blew a shofar in protest of Jewish entry being barred during the country’s renewed lockdown" (The election is due to occur in summer of 2021, and the presidency is a 7 year term.)

EnochWalked: YS: Right, that stood out to me too. I guess it's based on the idea of the Shmita cycle, but that doesn't mean it's a mere "coincidence". I'm surprised I've not learnt of this detail about their presidency before. 2021 could be more significant than 2020.

EnochWalked: d4l: Excellent link and analysis, thank you. Technology has developed in exactly the ways the Bible foretold, and the only step missing is a leader who will mandate the use of these devices (and facial recognition, and genome editing, and AI etc.)

EnochWalked: "And it’s contactless, which we think customers will appreciate, especially in current times." Does it contain a (visible light / infra-red) camera, or is it bouncing radio signals off your skin? It will be hard to hold your hand close but not touching it.

EnochWalked: Interesting, bernie. If an over-worked or lazy mail carrier just didn't want to bring the mail to the post office, they should have set fire to it rather than leave it around to be found. It should be possible to work out which carrier was responsible.

EnochWalked: I'm imagining a special task force delivering this ditched mail to the intended recipient in person, asking them to open the mail and voluntarily disclose who the sender was. Then contact those senders and ask when and where they posted that mail.

Mary: Rev 13:3 One of the heads of the beast seemed to have had a fatal wound, but the fatal wound had been healed. The whole world was filled with wonder and followed the beast.

Mary: Rev 13:15 “The second beast was given power to give breath to the image of the first beast, so that the image could speak and cause all who refused to worship the image to be killed”

EnochWalked: Mary: Thank you! I had seen the headline before, and felt too creeped out to read the article, but couldn't put that thought into words (or verses). Now that you've pointed out the parallels, I think that's a strong prophetic reminder of how close we are.

Mary: EW: Yes. “Technology has developed in EXACTLY the ways the Bible foretold” He is coming soon!
