God Turned the Evil Report Meant for Joseph and Jesus Around for Good.
The evil plan that Joseph’s brothers meant for him, God turned around for good. The same can be said about Jesus. The evil reports meted out to Jesus by His people, God turned it around for good.
Genesis 45:5-8 5 Now therefore, be not grieved, nor angry with yourselves, that ye sold me hither: for God did send me before you to preserve life. 6 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. 7 And God sent me before you to preserve you posterity in the earth; and to save your lives by a great deliverance. 8 So now it was not you that sent me hither, but God, and he hath made me a farther to Pharaoh, and lord of all his house, and a ruler throughout all the land of Egypt.
Acts 3:12-18 12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? Or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? 13 The God of Abraham: and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the God of our fathers, hath glorified His Son Jesus whom ye delivered up, and denied Him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let Him go. 14 But ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you. 15 And killed the Prince of life: whom God hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses. 16 And His name through faith in His name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by Him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. 17 And now, brethren, I wot that through ignorance ye did it, as did also your rulers. 18 But those things, which God before had shewed by the mouth of all His prophets, that Christ should suffer, He hath fulfilled.
