Studying Genesis in the series Lesson 13, may the Holy Spirit be the speaker to your heart. 

The Topic today is: "Joseph compared to Jesus and what about us?"

The Opening Hymn will be 229 "Spirit of the Living God"

The Sabbath School Quarterly, downloadable from in the Teacher's Edition is on page 169 and for the laymen edition or Standard Edition, on page 110.

The site allows anyone, anywhere to read the lesson in their own language. Choose your own language to see God speaking also to your heart.

---Jesus suffered in all aspects as we are morally, but remained sinless (Hebrews 4:15) and Joseph did the same in Egypt.

---Joseph chose to fail in Egyptian eyes and perception, but he is not going to align with Egyptian Jurisprudence Heathen based and non-biblical concepts of what is truth, right.

---Joseph stood for the truth, though the heavens fall. And God helped him. Everyone's heart is in God's Hands. He softened their feelings towards Joseph because Joseph chose to take His stand with God not against Him.

---The expressed will of God in the Scripture and Ellen White reflecting on those truths, are applicable now as it was since 1844 or since her first vision.

---The overcoming ability of humans in their pursuit of sinlessness and perfection is built into Ellen White and the pioneers and many faithful readers' of the Revelation of God's understanding and lifestyle.

---Self-delusion is when, like Judas Iscariot, and others, people make compromises to "water-down" the explicit requirements of the Bible or Spirit of Prophecy.

---"Oh," they say "prophets are people. Ellen White also did not follow what she said at times". Giggling they continue in their sinful practices and think they are smart.

---Around the world, there are Adventists in high places. Judges, politicians, presidents of countries, ministers in the parliaments, but if they compromise the Sabbath, compromise on skew Jurisprudence and flaky ideas of equity, they are not representatives of the Bible nor Spirit of Prophecy nor God.

---Is this "biblical literalism"? Is this making the Bible a fundamental icon or idol in our lives? Certainly not.

---There is no other Door through which we should enter than that given by Christ and the Editor of the Holy Scriptures and Spirit of Prophecy.

---It is better to resign from being a Judge or President and save one's soul than to lose it to please the world.

---"I will do it later when I retire". No, look at the leaders of the world currently, in a mess. Chaos is everywhere. Soon the Door of Mercy is going to close abruptly and what time is left?

---Now, Christ said throughout the Bible, when you understand His message...follow it without hesitation.

---If you denied God, come back without further compromises.

---Those who denied Christ or His Bible or Messages through Spirit of Prophecy to compromise, their beds will become hard for them at night. They will have sleepless nights...until they render themselves unconditionally to Christ again.

---There is peace with God though the heavens fall. Joseph and Jesus illustrated this truth to us.
