---In Friday section of the Sabbathschool, Ellen White shows that Joseph tested his brothers.

---They past the test that they are no longer evil.

---They were overcomers of evil. Joseph was satisfied that the brothers will not do to Benjamin that they did to him.

---He could see that they repented.

---True repentance will lead to genuine transformation. This is opposite to what general Psychology is teaching today.

---The world is teaching that you can never change your past history, your genetic make-up, you just have to accept and live with it.

---In a relativistic world, they expect everyone to be just accepted as they are and people should not try to change anyone.

---They are against proselytism or evangelism or transformation of live-styles towards holy living.

---They are against overcoming sermons and messages.

---Some Adventists are harboring silent wrong habits that they do not want to change. So they like messages that do not expect overcoming.

---Jesus said to John the Revelator: To him/her that overcome, I will give to sit with Me in My kingdom.

---Even Paul in Romans, preaching Justification by Faith, spelled out total obedience in a perfect manner as requirement in Romans. People missed it.

---Joseph's result with his brothers, can be ours also. People do not stay the same as they were years ago. Thanks to the indwelling Spirit of God.
