Genesis 50:24 And Joseph took an oath of the children of Israel, saying God will surely visit you, and ye shall carry up my bones from hence.
What? Why did Joseph want the children of Israel to carry his bones away?
And Moses did!
Exodus 13:19 And Moses took the bones of Joseph with him.
Now these bones are 400 years old!
Well the Bible says that was the right thing to do.
Hebrews 11:22 By faith Joseph, when he died, made mention of the departing of the children of Israel; and gave commandment concerning his bones.
OK, but why?
Matthew 27:51 – 53 And, Behold, the veil of the temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom: and the earth did quake, and the rocks rent and the graves were opened, and many bodies of the saints which slept arose, and came out of the graves after this resurrection, and went into the holy city and appeared unto many.
Joseph knew what was going to happen and he wanted to be a part of it.
Those guys that arose with Christ were the first fruits of the resurrection. They are living proof that the harvest is going to happen.
Forever in His Love,
