Parsha Miketz – At the End

Parsha Miketz – At the End -
B’reshit 41:1- 44:17,
Z’kharyah 2:14-4:7, 1 M’lakhim 3:15-4:1, 7:40-50
1st Corint.2:1-5
                                                           Daniel ben Ya'acov Israel


At the end of this parsha you will find an interesting chart concerning Ya'acov descendants and their children. The Torah doesn't give any information concerning the wives from each of the children. The book of Yasher unveils their name and origins. I was amazed to see that the wife of the greatest part of them where from.
You will know when you read; also concerning the age of Benjamin at his marriage which stand in a shocking position compare with today's principle. A point should be mention is that first of all the women were virgin. The age doesn't mean that they had a sexual relation at this time! Sad that so many neglect the reading of this book mentioned two times in the book of Yoshua and the 2nd Book of Sh'muel.   We have now trained ourselves to read the different “Parsha” in the four levels of the “Pardes” in order to see what יהוה has prepared for those who seek him in His word.
 יהושע says in Mattityahu 7:7 “seek and you shall find”.
King David writes in Psalm 25:” The secret (sod) of יהוה is for them that fear him”.......
The Hebrew word for “fear” is Strong’s # H3373 ירא yârê' yaw-ray' From H3372; fearing; morally reverent: - afraid, fear (-full)................
We all know that “the fear of יהוה is the beginning of wisdom” (Prov. 9:10), and it’s also the open door for knowledge (da’at) Prov.1:7
We are going to scrutinize Yoseph’s life in the light of the coming Messiah and see the parallels between both of them.  For those who read my “Parsha” for the first time, I have written many times that Torah is a progressive revelation we go from the concealed to the revealed. The world today cannot understand because for most of the readers, the Torah is just a book with a literal meaning and remain conceal to them. Have you not heard people saying: “the bible is only a story from people” or even from Christians: “the bible is the story of the ancestors”. This statement is true, but the purpose of יהוה when making Moshe record the Torah was not only to make a “record” from many events from the beginning (B’reshit), but to reveal Messiah, in order that every man’s mouth be shut and יהוה’s people build their faith in the Torah and not in the doctrines of men! Shaul says:" faith comes by hearing and hearing the word of Elohim” (Rom.10:17). The word of Elohim is the Torah!
יהוה says through the prophet Yeshayahu (Isaiah) in chapter 46:9-10 that He speaks the end from the beginning.
Have you ever asking yourself, how come that Moshe could write these five books from “B’reshit to D’varim” (Genesis-Deuteronomy), this is a very long period about 2500 years?  I found out something interesting and since have I take more interest in Torah’s understanding.   The book of Yasher (the Just/righteous in Hebrew) is mentioned twice in the Tanakh (2nd Samuel 1:18 and Yoshuah 10:13). This book was well known among the people at this time and I guess that it was also in Moshes’ time and also by King David and other Psalm writers has we are going to see.  The book of Yasher helps us to understand that Torah was taught to all יהוה’s people from the beginning (Adam). Moshes didn’t had a “big vision” and suddenly started to write the Torah. The Torah is divided in two parts:
*  A) The first part is the recall of the creation from the Beginning (B’reshit) to Moshe’s time
*  B) The second part is יהוה’s revelation to Moshe at Sinai, and call "the Torah of Moshe"
Act 13:39 and by him all that believe are justified from all things, from which ye could not be justified by the law (Torah) of Moses.
1Co 9:9 for it is written in the law (Torah) of Moses, Thou shalt not muzzle the mouth of the ox that treadeth out the corn. Doth YHWH take care for oxen?
Many years was I asking myself how Moshe could have such a “vision” to write all this details? When I started to read the book of Yasher, after a while, things became clear. I saw in this book many things and understood that the patriarchs from Adam on, taught their children in יהוה’s way as it is also said in the “Sh’ma” which is the Pillar of the Yehudin’s faith.
Deu 6:6 “And these Words which I am commanding you today shall be in your heart,
Deu 6:7 and you shall impress (teach) them upon your children, and shall speak of them when you sit in your house, and when you walk by the way, and when you lie down, and when you rise up,
We read in the book of Yasher:
Yasher 5:9. And Noah and Methuselah (Noach’s great father) spoke all the words of YHWH to the sons of men, day after day, constantly speaking to them.
Many passages in the Torah became understandable. I know there is scholars who plan to publish a new Tanakh including the book of Yasher. I hope it will come soon, as it is so enlightening for those who want to know more. If you have the possibility you can also download it for free in internet. (PUBLISHED BY J.H. PARRY & COMPANY 1887).   If we neglect Yasher’s book, there are many passage in the Torah which will remain obscure and so, many have given their own “interpretation”. I will give you today the proof that Yasher was known among יהוה’s people and that Moshe wrote from this book until יהוה gave him revelation at the time He called him at the “burning bush”, which Yasher explain to be one of יהוה’s messenger (Malak) having the form of a burning bush.  In יהושע' people knew the difference between the Torah of Moshe and the "Torah from the forefathers":
 Joh 7:22 Moses therefore gave unto you circumcision; (not because it is of Moses, but of the fathers) and ye on the Sabbath day circumcise a man......  
Yes they speak of the circumcision, but make it clear that it came before Moshe with others rules like eating clean animals which can be seen in the fact that Noach separate clean and unclean animals in the ark. The Torah of Moshe starts when Moshe is in the house of Yethro and come to the burning bush. I know some will like to argue with me, I know that Moshe was also trained by his mother in Pharaoh's palace I speak here from the Torah.  But first let us look back to the Parsah “Miketz” and follow Yoseph tribulation in Egypt.
The word "Tribulation" comes from the Latin word “tribulum” which was an instrument used to separate the corn wheat from its husk, before it could be used for making bread. The husk represents the impurity of life which covers each of us, and must be removed. When יהוה bring us through life’s tribulation it is to remove this husk (impurities) and make us vessels of gold, refined and pure.
The context: First Pharaoh is here a picture of “G-d on earth", indeed Pharaoh was many time called “g-d”. Egypt in the Torah is a microcosm of the world today. To avoid mistake, we need to understand that Pharaoh from Yoseph’s time is not the same Pharaoh from Moshe’s time; and so other Pharaoh, other situation. In this context Pharaoh is a metaphor for “God on earth”.   If we want to understand, we have to know that all that happened to the children of Israel including at the time of the prophet is a shadow of what is going today in the world we are living.  I have read many interpretations concerning prophecy which contradict one another, especially concerning the interpretation of the book of Revelation. I don’t pretend to know everything, far from me and I am grateful when I learn from a brother or when I find a web site which contributes to develop my understanding. Unfortunately it seems to be a great competition in יהוה’s household! I hope to be able to bring soon a Midrash concerning this book of Revelation which for sure will surprise many, but everything in its time!
The context of the Torah is I say it again a shadow of what we see today. Egypt was the microcosm of what will happen to Ya’acov’s descendants after Messiah departure to the Father. 
Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath days:
Col 2:17 which are a shadow of things to come; but the body of the Messiah. ….. 
Don't think that Sha'ul here is writing that these things are not important, he just make clear against the popular belief at this time that all this thinks where shadow and not the full image of things to come. Meat, drink, holiday (feast of יהוה), new moon Shabbat are all pointing to things to be reveal in Messiah יהושע and in no way nullified, in Sha’ul time the Pharisee and other groups like the Essenes had enforced their regulations, enactments, decrees and oral laws, (takanot, ma’asim, gezerot)
Barnes write:……. You are not responsible to man for your conduct, but to Christ; and no man has a right to impose that on you as a burden from which he has made you free.  יהושע has not made us free from following the Torah , but from the penalty of death which was brought by the breaking of the Torah (read my midrash:"Only Ten Commandments). When you see the shadow of something you are close to the image, shadow and image are both one, no shadow without the image!  Sha'ul wrote this letter at the time when the "world" was under the pagan Roman control and his system of worship that had great influence on people. Before that the Greek had already spoiled the mind of the people. Further this letter like all other letter are not written to common people but here to the believers in יהושע living in Colossae .  Greeks also indulged in schools of logic and philosophy (wisdom of man) and their thinking spread in the Roman world of this days and today in the all world. I remind you that in college and university Greek Philosopher and others have a great audience (listeners).
Sha'ul write: " Let no man therefore judge………………… but the body of the Messiah..  
In other words: "don't let pagans outside the Torah tell you what is good for you". Christians in their lack of understanding use these verses to promote lawlessness.  Sh’lomoh write in Kohelet (Ecclesiastes) 1:9 What has been is what shall be, what has been done is what shall be done, and there is no new matter under the sun.
In other words if you want to know the end, just study the beginning. We cannot understand the book of Revelation if we reject the study of Torah. We can already see Messiah in the first nineteen verses of B’reshit chapter one. Don’t mistake me, not in the literal text, we will have to go in the “sod”(mystery) going through the “remez” and “drash” levels.    Yoseph in the “remez” (hint) and “sod” (hidden or mystery) is a picture of יהושע , like Yoseph beloved of his father and we are going to see the numerous parallel in the “parasha”.
41:1. “….at the end of two years’ time”.   It looks that we also today find ourselves in the same situation at the end of two full years, or two thousand years when we consider that one day equals one thousand years (Psalm 90:4). Today HaSatan the g-d of this world (spiritual entity of Pharaoh) try to build his own Kingdom but as it was with Pharaoh, יהוה will deliver His people from his hand at Messiah Second Advent, the same as it was with Yoseph.  Yoseph is a picture of יהושע who came to save his brethren in the midst of a pagan system, born as a man, he was rejected of his brethren and was raised at the right hand of Pharaoh! Can you see the parallel with יהושע? 
Joh 1:11 He (יהושע) came to His own, and His own did not receive Him.
Do you know that יהושע is our brother announced by the prophets?
Act 7:37 “This is the Mosheh who said to the children of Yisra’ĕl, ‘יהוה your Elohim shall raise up for you a Prophet like me from your brothers. Him you shall hear.’
Rom 8:29 because those whom He knew beforehand, He also ordained beforehand to be conformed to the likeness of His Son, for Him to be the first-born among many brothers.  Heb 2:11 for both He who sets apart and those who are being set apart are all of One, for which reason He (יהושע) is not ashamed to call them brothers, Heb 2:12 saying, I shall announce Your Name to My brothers, in the midst of the congregation I shall sing praise to You.” Heb 2:17 So in every way He (יהושע) had to be made like His brothers, in order to become a compassionate and trustworthy High Priest in matters related to Elohim, to make atonement for the sins of the people.
If יהושע is “Elohim” the creator, as many scholars want to believe, which is a teaching emanating from Roman Catholic Christianity, then according to this few verses, you and I must be יהוה’s brothers! This seems to be inaccurate and a false conclusion (see my midrash: יהושע G-d or Son of Elohim).
In this Parsha, we are going to see how יהוה will turn Egypt (the world system) over to Yoseph (the saviour of his brethren) a shadow of what will soon become reality for you and me.
Gen 41:1 and it came to be, at the end of two years’ time, that Pharaoh had a dream, and saw him standing by the river, Gen 41:2 and saw seven cows coming up out of the river, fine looking and fat, and they fed amongst the reeds,
Gen 41:3 then saw seven other cows coming up after them out of the river, ugly and lean of flesh, and stood by the other cows on the bank of the river. Gen 41:4 and the ugly and lean of flesh cows ate up the seven fine looking and fat cows. Then Pharaoh awoke. Gen 41:5 and he slept and dreamed a second time and saw seven heads of grain coming up on one stalk, plump and good, Gen 41:6 and saw seven lean heads, scorched by the east wind, coming up after them.
Gen 41:7 and the seven lean heads swallowed the seven plump and complete heads. Then Pharaoh awoke and saw it was a dream. Gen 41:8 and it came to be in the morning that his spirit was moved, and he sent and called for all the magicians of Mitsrayim and all its wise men. And Pharaoh related to them his dreams, but there was no one who could interpret them for Pharaoh.
The book of Yasher explains that Pharaoh tried to get the interpretation through his magicians and they were not able, but to give their own interpretation as we can see today similarity with the “false prophets” of the world.
Jasher Chapter 48
1. in those days, after the death of Isaac, YHWH commanded and caused a famine upon the whole earth. (YHWH was the author of the famine!) 2. at that time Pharaoh king of Egypt was sitting upon his throne in the land of Egypt, and lay in his bed and dreamed dreams, and Pharaoh saw in his dream that he was standing by the side of the river of Egypt. 3. and whilst he was standing he saw and behold seven fat fleshed and well favoured kine came up out of the river.
4. and seven other kine lean fleshed and ill favoured, came up after them, and the seven ill favoured ones swallowed up the well favoured ones, and still their appearance was ill as at first. 5. and he awoke, and he slept again and he dreamed a second time, and he saw and behold seven ears of corn came up upon one stalk, rank and good, and seven thin ears blasted with the east wind sprang, up after them, and the thin ears swallowed up the full ones, and Pharaoh awoke out of his dream. 6. and in the morning the king remembered his dreams, and his spirit was sadly troubled on account of his dreams, and the king hastened and sent and called for all the
magicians of Egypt, and the wise men, and they came and stood before Pharaoh. 7. and the king said unto them, I have dreamed dreams, and there is none to interpret them; and they said unto the king, relate thy dreams to thy servants and let us hear them. 8. and the king related his dreams to them, and they all answered and said with one voice to the king, may the king live forever; and this is the interpretation of thy dreams.
11. and when they spoke these words the king did not incline his ear to their words, neither did he fix his heart upon them, for the king knew in his wisdom that they did not give a proper interpretation of the dreams; and when they had finished speaking before the king, the king answered them, saying, What is this thing that you have spoken unto me? surely you have uttered falsehood and spoken lies; therefore now give the proper
interpretation of my dreams, that you may not die.
In this dream again the number seven indicate the “divine completion on earth” This is the sign of the coming supernatural change marked by the following number eight which mark the “Olam Haba” or “Eternity”. 
 Greg killian an orthodox Jews wwho believe in Mashiach Yehoshua, gives this interesting explanation:
Seven: The invisible “Creator” in connection with the “Created”, the One (Echad, יהוה) with the six. Nachmanides (12th century Spain) explains the Kabbalistic concept: Seven is the number of the natural world. There are seven days in the week, seven notes on the musical scale and seven direction(left, right, up, down, forward, back and centre), seven represented by the seven days of Succoth is the world of nature. “Eight” represented by Shemini Atzeret, is that which is beyond nature, the eighth day of the Feast of Succoth.
Seven: completeness, rest (Shabbat), healing, used as a flag for an important even like the “Millennium kingdom”.  
Some few examples: B’reshit 7:10, Sh’mot 24;16, Begin Millennium Vaykra 8:31-33, 16:14, Yehoshua 6:16, Revelation 15:1, 16:1, 6:1, Flag examples Nehemiah 7:7, Daniel 9:25, 2 Divrei HaYamin (2nd Chronicles) 23:1. Shabbat, Sh’mot 20:8, Matt.12:1, Marqos 2:23, Luquas 6:1, Removal of demons and healing: Marqos 1:21-34, 3:1-5, 6:1-6.  
Verse 12, Yoseph was a Hebrew and NOT a “Jew” as many want to call him today. Brethren let us love one another with a pure heart and not with man’s traditions. 
Verse 14, they brought him out of the dungeon........
Dungeon Strong’s # H953 בּור bôr bore From H952 (in the sense of H877); a pit hole (especially one used as a cistern or prison): - cistern, dungeon, fountain, pit, well.

The prophet Yeshayahu sees the spiritual fulfilment of the “dungeon”. Later Luke explains that this “dungeon” could not stop Elohim’s fulfilment for him Yoseph / יהושע to save his brethren, but look the parallel between the Torah with Yoseph's condition, the Prophet Yeshayahu speaking of יהושע and Luke also speaking of יהושע: 
Isa 53:8 He was taken from prison* (dungeon) and from judgment. And as for His generation, who considered that He shall be cut off from the land of the living? For the transgression of My people He was stricken. Isa 53:9 and He was appointed a grave with the wrong, and with the rich at His death, because He had done no violence.
*Here the word for prison is:
H6115 עוֹצֶר `otser (o'-tser) n-m.
1. closure
2. also constraint
[from H6113]
KJV: X barren, oppression, X prison
But carry the same idea.
Act 2:24 “Him Elohim raised up, having loosed the pangs of death, because it was impossible that He could be held in its grip.
Gen 41:9 then the chief cupbearer spoke to Pharaoh, saying, “I remember my crimes this day. Gen 41:10 “When Pharaoh was wroth with his servants, and put me in confinement in the house of the captain of the guard, both me and the chief baker,  Gen 41:11 each one of us dreamed a dream in one night, he and I. Each of us dreamed according to the interpretation of his own dream.  Gen 41:12 “And there was with us a Heḇrew youth, a servant of the captain of the guard and we related to him, and he interpreted our dreams for us. To each man he interpreted according to his own dream.  Gen 41:13 “And it came to be, as he interpreted for us, so it came to be. He restored me to my office, and he hanged him.”  Gen 41:14 Then Pharaoh sent and called Yosĕph, and they hurriedly brought him out of the dungeon. And he shaved and changed his garments, and came to Pharaoh.  Gen 41:15 And Pharaoh said to Yosĕph, “I have dreamed a dream, and there is no one to interpret it. Now I myself have heard it said of you that you understand a dream, to interpret it.” Gen 41:16 And Yosĕph answered Pharaoh, saying, It is not in me, let Elohim answer Pharaoh with peace.”  
The book of Yasher gives us an interesting detail:
48:52. and Joseph was then clothed with the spirit of God before the king, and he knew all the things that would befall the king from that day forward, and he knew the proper interpretation of the king's dream, and he spoke before the king.
Gen 41:17 and Pharaoh said to Yosĕph, “See, in my dream I stood on the bank of the river. Gen 41:18 and saw seven cows coming up out of the river, fine looking and fat, and they fed amongst the reeds,  Gen 41:19 then saw seven other cows coming up after them, poor and very ugly and lean of flesh, such ugliness as I have never seen in all the land of Mitsrayim.  Gen 41:20 “and the lean of flesh and ugly cows ate up the first seven, the fat cows.  Gen 41:21 “Yet when they had eaten them up, no one would have known that they had eaten them, for they were as ugly as at the beginning. Then I awoke. Gen 41:22 “Also, I looked in my dream and saw seven heads coming up on one stalk, complete and good, Gen 41:23 then saw seven heads, withered, lean, scorched by the east wind, coming up after them. Gen 41:24 “And the lean heads swallowed the seven good heads. And I spoke to the magicians, but there was no one who could explain it to me.”
Spiritual interpretation:
Pharaoh’s dream is a signal for us today as we hear the rulers of the world and economic system saying that there is not enough food to feed the people in the all world.  The prophet Amos warns us that the last Famine will be the worst of all:
Amo 8:11 “See, days are coming,” declares the Master יהוה, “that I shall send a hunger (famine) land, not a hunger (famine) for bread, nor a thirst for water, but for hearing the Words of יהוה.
Spiritual for natural, people today think mostly to feed their belly and reject יהוה’s eternal Torah.  Pharaoh sees cows and corn in his dream.
*  Cows are clean animals and the fat ones represent “righteous believers”.
*  Corn is used to make bread, and we know that bread is a picture of יהושע, the bread of life (Yochanan 6) also of spiritual food.
Verse 18 the fat cows feed in a meadow, grazing the grass. His action represents believers taking the words of the Torah in order to chew it or meditate on the Torah. Verse 20 the lean cows represent the believers before the coming of Messiah who have “no appetite” for the Torah “the grass” and oppress the fat ones (righteous believers) by their false ways and false doctrines.........
Mat 23:15 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees (Rabbis), hypocrites! For ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte, and when he is made, ye make him twofold more the child of hell (Gehenna) than yourselves.................
How many "teachers", "leaders" in messianic congregations put people under bondage giving them false doctrines, not knowing themselves to discern between right and left?
Yoseph was brought before Pharaoh:  ---
Book of Yasher: --- 46: 20. and Joseph remained after this in the prison house two years, until he had completed twelve years.. Verse 25, Yoseph tells Pharaoh that both dreams are one and the same dream, the lean cows, the lazy and unfaithful believers (lean cows) have taken the place of the righteous believers (fat cows) who ate the bread (corn, good ears, word of Torah)
Luk 18:8 “I say to you that He shall do right to them speedily. But when the Son of Aḏam comes, shall He find the belief on the earth?”  
2Ti 2:18 who have missed the goal concerning the truth, saying that the resurrection has already taken place, and overthrow the belief of some.  
1Ti 6:21 which some, having professed it, have missed the goal concerning the belief. Favour be with you. Amĕn.
Compare what Kefa writes to the remnant:
1Pe 1:7 in order that the proving of your belief – much more precious than gold that perishes, and proven by fire (Word of יהוה) – might be found to result in praise and respect and esteem at the revelation of יהושע Messiah, (Yoseph was revealed to his brethren during the famine)
1Pe 1:9 obtaining the goal of your belief: a deliverance of lives.  
1Pe 5:9 Resist him, firm in the belief, knowing that the same hardships are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.
1Jn 5:4 because everyone having been born of Elohim overcomes the world. And this is the overcoming that has overcome the world: our belief.
Verse 25 – 37 Now Yoseph reveals Elohim’s plan of “salvation” to Pharaoh (Head of the world system today). Remember that Messiah יהושע will come to save Elohim’s people, the House of Ya’acov to rule over them forever (Luke 1:33)......
Verse 32: Nothing can change what יהוה has established, "twice", is the number for division and also the confirmation of divine purpose..........Yoseph tells Pharaoh the reason why יהוה gave two dreams:  
Yasher 48:56. The king dreamed one dream, and the dream was therefore repeated unto Pharaoh because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.
Isa 55:11 so is My Word that goes forth from My mouth – it does not return to Me empty, but shall do what I please, and shall certainly accomplish what I sent it for.
Yoseph plan pleased Pharaoh verse 37. ......
Now Pharaoh (g-d on earth) will empower Yoseph and seat him at his right hand, verse 40 nobody will be greater than Yoseph except Pharaoh himself:
Spiritual application:
Act 2:34 “For Dawiḏ did not ascend into the heavens, but he himself said, ‘יהוה said to my Master, “Sit at My right hand,  
Col 3:1 If, then, you were raised with Messiah, seek the matters which are above, where Messiah is, seated at the right hand of Elohim.  
1Co 15:28 and when all are made subject to Him, then the Son Himself shall also be subject to Him (YHWH) who put all under Him, in order that Elohim be all in all.
Gen 41:25 and Yosĕph said to Pharaoh, “The dream of Pharaoh is one. Elohim has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do: Gen 41:26The seven good cows are seven years, and the seven good heads are seven years – it is one dream.
Gen 41:27 “And the seven lean and ugly cows which came up after them are seven years, and the seven empty heads scorched by the east wind are seven years of scarcity of food. Gen 41:28 “This is the word which I spoke to Pharaoh: Elohim has shown Pharaoh what He is about to do. Gen 41:29 “See, seven years of great plenty are coming in all the land of Mitsrayim, Gen 41:30 but after them seven years of scarcity of food shall arise and all the plenty be forgotten in the land of Mitsrayim. And the scarcity of food shall destroy the land, Gen 41:31 and the plenty shall not be remembered in the land, because of the scarcity of food following, for it is very severe. Gen 41:32 “and the dream was repeated to Pharaoh twice because the word is established by Elohim, and Elohim is hastening to do it. Gen 41:33 “and now, let Pharaoh look for a discerning and wise man, and set him over the land of Mitsrayim. Gen 41:34 “let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint overseers over the land, to take up one-fifth of the land of Mitsrayim in the seven years of plenty. Gen 41:35 “and let them gather all the food of those good years that are coming, and store up grain under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities. Gen 41:36 “and the food shall be for a store for the land for the seven years of scarcity of food which shall be in the land of Mitsrayim, and do not let the land be cut off by the scarcity of food.” Gen 41:37 and the word was good in the eyes of Pharaoh and in the eyes of all his servants.
Gen 41:38 and Pharaoh said to his servants, “Could we find another like him, a man in whom is the Spirit of Elohim?
Gen 41:39 Then Pharaoh said to Yosĕph, “Since Elohim has shown you all this, there is no one as discerning and wise as you. .....................
Verse 40 Nobody will be greater than Yoseph except Pharaoh: 
Spiritual application:
Php 2:9 Elohim, therefore, has highly exalted Him (יהושע) and given Him the Name which is above every name, Php 2:10 that at the Name of יהושע every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
Col 1:18 and He is the Head of the body, the assembly, who is the beginning, the first-born from the dead, that He might become the One who is first in all.
Joh 5:26 “For as the Father possesses life in Himself, so He gave also to the Son to possess life in Himself, Joh 5:27 and He (YHWH) has given Him (יהושע) authority also to do judgment, because He is the Son of Aḏam. Joh 5:30Of Myself I am unable to do any matter. As I hear, I judge, and My judgment is righteous, because I do not seek My own desire, but the desire of the Father who sent Me.
We see Yoseph’s life been fulfilled in Messiah and like Yoseph was born to protect his brethren, are you doubting that יהושע will protect you from the world famine today?  Are you יהושע’s brethren? He says that you are, so you don’t have to worry, for what you will eat or what you will wear, for He will provide. This is the truth from the Torah. Halleluyah!
Gen 41:40 “be over my house, you yourself, and at your mouth all my people shall kiss – only in the throne I am greater than you.”  Gen 41:41 and Pharaoh said to Yosĕph, “See, I have set you over all the land of Mitsrayim.” Gen 41:42 and Pharaoh took his seal-ring off his hand and put it on Yosĕph’s hand. And he dressed him in garments of fine linen and put a gold chain around his neck. Gen 41:43 and he had him ride in the second chariot which he had. And they cried out before him, “Bow the knee!” And he set him over all the land of Mitsrayim.
Spiritual application: Just compare the verse 43 with the following. 
Php 2:9 Elohim, therefore, has highly exalted Him (יהושע) and given Him the Name which is above every name,  Php 2:10 that at the Name of יהושע every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth,
Can you see the parallel between the natural (Yoseph) and the spiritual (יהושע Messiah)?
Sha’ul told us in the book of Romans that we should not be conformed to the world but transformed by the renewing of our mind. The only process to be renewed and transformed is to study the Torah and pray to Aba יהוה for revelation knowledge. The renewing of our mind takes effort on our side. The mind can only be renewed by removing the old thoughts accumulated during past years and replace with the Torah
I want to show you also another detail to demonstrate that the book of Yasher was well known at this time, we read in Yasher chapter 49: --- 28. Do you see this man whom the king has chosen to be his second? all the affairs of government shall be regulated by him, and he that transgresses his orders, or that does not bow down before him to the ground, shall die, for he rebels against the king and his second. 29. and when the heralds had ceased proclaiming, all the people of Egypt bowed down to the ground before Joseph and said, May the king live, also may his second live; and all the inhabitants of Egypt bowed down along the road, and when the heralds approached them, they bowed down, and they rejoiced with all sorts of timbrels, mechol and nebal before Joseph. 30. and Joseph upon his horse lifted up his eyes to heaven, and called out and said, He raiseth the poor man from the dust, He lifteth up the needy from the dunghill. O YHWH of Hosts, happy is the man who trusteth in thee. 31. and Joseph passed throughout the land of Egypt with Pharaoh's servants and officers, and they showed him the whole land of Egypt and all the king's treasures.
Have you read the verse 30? Have you make the connection with the Tehilim? Just read these verses:
Psa 113:7 He raises the poor out of the dust, Lifts the needy from a dunghill,
Where did the writer of the Psalm found it, remember the book is mentioned in two books of the scriptures?
Gen 41:44 and Pharaoh said to Yosĕph, “I am Pharaoh, and without a word from you let no man lift his hand or foot in all the land of Mitsrayim.” Gen 41:45 and Pharaoh called Yosĕph’s name Zaphnath-Paʽnĕaḥ. And he gave him as a wife Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On and Yosĕph went out over all the land of Mitsrayim.
Pharaoh called YosephZaphnah-Paneah:
Keil and Deltiztsch give following interpretation: according to Rosellini and more recent Egyptologists, to the Coptic P-sont-em-ph-anh, i.e., sustentator vitae, support or sustainer of life, with reference to the call entrusted to him by God.
Josephus in his writing "Antiquities of the Jews” writes following in book: ii chapter 6:1:
JOSEPH was now grown up to thirty years of age, and enjoyed great honours from the king, who called him Psothom Phanech, out of regard to his prodigious degree of wisdom; for that name denotes the revealers of secrets. He also married a wife of very high quality; for he married the daughter of Petephres, (4) one of the priests of Heliopolis; she was a virgin, and her name was Asenath
Verse 46, Yoseph enter his ministry like יהושע at the age of Thirty years old!
Gen 41:46 Now Yosĕph was thirty years old when he stood before Pharaoh sovereign of Mitsrayim. And Yosĕph went out from the presence of Pharaoh, and went throughout all the land of Mitsrayim.
Spiritual explanation of the dream:
---- 47. “The seven years of plenty” represent the beginning of Messiah ministry when believers from the House of Yehudah and the House of Israel (gentiles) turned back to the Torah during the first century.  49. “much grain as the sand of the sea”, corn as the sand of the sea! Think about who shall be like the sand of the sea but only a remnant shall be saved.  
Gen 32:12 “For You said, ‘I shall certainly do good to you, and shall make your seed as the sand of the sea, which are too numerous to count.’ ” (Elohim to Ya’acov).
Isa 10:22 for though your people, O Yisra’ĕl, be as the sand of the sea, yet a remnant of them shall return – a decisive end, overflowing with righteousness.  
Hos 1:10 “Yet the number of the children of Yisra’ĕl shall be as the sand of the sea, which is not measured nor counted. And it shall be in the place where it was said to them, ‘You are not My people,’ they shall be called, ‘You are the sons of the living Ěl.’
Rom 9:27 And Yeshayahu cries out on behalf of Yisra’ĕl, “Though the number of the children of Yisra’ĕl be as the sand of the sea, the remnant shall be saved.  
Rev 13:1 and I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and on his horns ten crowns, and on his heads names of blasphemy.  
Rev 20:8 and he shall go out to lead the nations astray which are in the four corners of the earth, Goḡ and Maḡoḡ, to gather them together for battle, whose number is as the sand of the sea. .......
 As I was looking for “the sand of the sea” the Ruach gave me understanding concerning the book of Revelation. The Torah is the source of our Revelation not the other way round, through or by the Ruach HaQodesh.
Revelation 13:1 and 20:8 who is like the sand of the sea? Are they not the descendants of Abraham, Itzahk and Ya’acov?  Are they not among the Christians assemblies today? Yochanan write chapter 13 that he saw a beast coming out of the “sea” when Yochanan “stood on the sand of the sea”. Think about that. Who are this people? And who is the beast?  What is the sea?
Rev 17:1 and there came one of the seven angels which had the seven vials, and talked with me, saying unto me, Come hither; I will shew unto thee the judgment of the great whore that sitteth upon many waters:Rev 17:15 and he saith unto me, The waters which thou sawest, where the whore sitteth, are peoples, and multitudes, and nations, and tongues.
When writing these verses by the hand of Yochanan, the Spirit of יהושע had the prophet Yrmeyahu in mind speaking of Babylon: 
Jer 51:13 O thou that dwellest upon many waters, abundant in treasures, thine end is come, and the measure of thy covetousness.
Jer 51:8 Babylon is suddenly fallen and destroyed: howl for her; take balm for her pain, if so she may be healed. Jer 51:9 We would have healed Babylon, but she is not healed: forsake her, and let us go every one into his own country: for her judgment reacheth unto heaven, and is lifted up even to the skies................
This is the first beast the one empowered by HaSatan verse 2 (dragon)
Revelation 20:8 who lead the people today, is it not HaSatan (verse 7) leading Gog and Magog against those whose number is as the sand of the sea? Now knowing who these people are, can you see who the remnant are? Are you among the remnant or are you among those who are as the sand of the sea?
Gen 41:47 and in the seven years of plenty the ground brought forth generously. Gen 41:48 and he gathered all the food of the seven years which were in the land of Mitsrayim, and laid up the food in the cities. He laid up in every city the food of the fields which surrounded them.  Gen 41:49 Thus Yosĕph gathered very much grain, as the sand of the sea, until he ceased counting, for it was without number.
Verse 49, we can see the revelation behind the literal text. “…much grain, as the sand of the sea…… it was without number” This was the situation at Moshe’s time when people had left Egypt as we can read:
Deu 10:22 “Your fathers went down to Mitsrayim with seventy beings, and now יהוה your Elohim has made you as numerous as the stars of the heavens. Deu 28:62 And you shall be left with few men (remnant), although you had become as numerous as the stars of the heavens, because you did not obey the voice of יהוה your Elohim. ………
This situation is the same today as it was under Moshe. As we are coming closer to the end of the age, believers are like the sand of the sea, but only a remnant will be saved, because of the same reason as it was with Moshe..............
50-53. Yospeh got children from Asenath. Let us first look at Yoseph’s wife name “Asenath”.............
Keil and Delitzsch give us following information:
Asenath, Ἀσενέθ (lxx), possibly connected with the name Neith, the Egyptian Pallas. Poti-Phera, Πετεφρῆ (lxx), a Coptic name signifying ille qui solis est, consecrated to the sun (φρη with the aspirated article signifies the sun in Memphitic). On was the popular name for Heliopolis (Ἡλιούπολις, lxx), and according to Cyrill. Alex. and Hos_5:8 signifies the sun; whilst the name upon the monuments is ta-Râ or pa-Râ, house of the sun (Brugsch, Reisebericht, p. 50). From a very early date there was a celebrated temple of the sun here, with a learned priesthood, which held the first place among the priests' colleges of Egypt (Herod. 2, 3; Hengst. pp. 32ff.). This promotion of Joseph, from the position of  a Hebrew slave pining in prison to the highest post of honour in the Egyptian kingdom, is perfectly conceivable, on the one hand, from the great importance attached in ancient times to the interpretation of dreams and to all occult science, especially among the Egyptians, and on the other hand, from the despotic form of government in the East; but the miraculous power of God is to be seen in the fact, that God endowed Joseph with the gift of infallible interpretation, and so ordered the circumstances that this gift opened the way for him to occupy that position in which he became the preserver, not of Egypt alone, but of his own family also. And the same hand of God, by which he had been so highly exalted after deep degradation, preserved him in his lofty post of honor from sinking into the heathenism of Egypt; although, by his alliance with the daughter of a priest of the sun, the most distinguished caste in the land, he had fully entered into the national associations and customs of the land.
This is of course very interesting when we know that nowadays, those pretending to worship “Christ”, are followers of the same Egyptian belief, the worship of the sun, demonstrated in their different feast like “christmas” and “easter” (isthar) and their worship day the “sun-day” or “day of the sun”,valentine’s day”, “new year” and more. 
Like Yoseph, Messiah יהושע will have to go to the spiritual Egypt to save the remnant of those who will follow him in the Torah.  Asenath is a picture of pagan nations where Yoseph / יהושע will bring the Torah.
*  Manasheh which means “forgetting”
*  Ephraim which means “fruitful”
Yoseph says that Elohim has made him to forget his father’s house and caused him to be fruitful in the land of his affliction!.......
We need to see the spiritual aspect which is found in יהושע Messiah. The House of Israel (Ephraim and Manasheh) are fruitful (many descendants) in the land of affliction (the world today) and have forgotten their ancestors (Abraham, Itzahk, Ya’acov, Yospeh, King David, Yehoshua) Read: Hoshea 13; 1, 4, 6, 12, 12:8, 7:8-12. .....
 Hos 13:1 When Ephraim spake, there was trembling in Israel*, he exalted himself; but when  he offended in Baal, he died. 
The verse 1 his full of misinterpretation which lead people to believe what is not in the Hebrew text:
Hos 13:1  c'dabar    `ef'rayiM    r'TaT    naSa`    hu`    b'yiS'ra`al    vaye`'shaM    baba,al    vayamoT
“As Ephraim spake he lifted panic in Israel and he is being guilty and in the Ba’al he is dying”.
The context of the verse is found is found in 1st King:18:17-40

Hos 13:4 Yet I am YHWH thy Elohim from the land of Egypt, and thou shalt know  no elohim but me: for there is no saviour beside me.  Hos 13:6 according to their pasture, so were they filled; they were filled, and their heart was exalted; therefore have they forgotten me. Hos 13:12 The iniquity of Ephraim is bound up; his sin is hid. Hos 12:8 and Ephraim said, Yet I am become rich, I have found me out substance: in all my labours they shall find none iniquity in me that were  sin. Hos 7:8 Ephraim, he hath mixed himself among the people; Ephraim is a cake not turned. Hos 7:9 strangers have devoured his strength, and he knoweth it not: yea, gray hairs are here and there upon him, yet he knoweth not. Hos 7:10 and the pride of Israel testifieth to his face: and they do not return to YHWH their Elohim, nor seek him for all this.
Hos 7:11 Ephraim also is like a silly dove without heart: they call to Egypt, they go to Assyria. Hos 7:12 when they shall go, I will spread my net upon them; I will bring them down as the fowls of the heaven; I will chastise them, as their congregation hath heard.
Remember Ephraim is the House of Israel, the Northern Kingdom separate from the House of Yehudah.
Gen 41:50 and to Yosĕph were born two sons before the years of scarcity of food came, whom Asenath, the daughter of Poti-Pherah priest of On, bore to him.  Gen 41:51 and Yosĕph called the name of the first-born Menashsheh, “For Elohim has made me forget all my toil and all my father’s house.”  Gen 41:52 and the name of the second he called Ephrayim, “For Elohim has caused me to bear fruit in the land of my affliction.”
Gen 41:53 and the seven years of plenty which were in the land of Mitsrayim came to an end,
54-57.Here again we are going to see how the spiritual and natural mix together.
As it was at Yoseph’s time it is today there is now in the years 2009 since many years more and more scarcity of food and people cry to “g-d”, the “g-d” of this world they turn to the rulers of the world for solution, like the Egyptians turned to Pharaoh.   Pharaoh told them to go to Yoseph and to do whatever he wills say. People today have turned to the false Messiah, the “Anti-messiah” the son of perdition, only a remnant follow the true Messiah, יהושע of Nazareth, not “Jesus from Rome”.
Verse 57 we read that all countries came to Yoseph in Egypt (world system) to buy corn (bread of life).  Is it not today so, that people from Africa, Asia, India and other world countries want to take part of the world wealth. Some of the lowest people sell themselves for a small loan to make dirty jobs, while the governments from all over the world come all together to join the leadership of the UN (United Nations) the New World Order, proclaimed by the leaders of the so called “powerful nations”.  Today as I am writing this parsha December 19. 2009 (updated 2010) the governments of almost all world nations are gathered together in Denmark at the Copenhagen Summit to find a "solution" for the climate, what they say. They cost of this meeting is evaluated at 400 million Euros, just to meet, a huge sum of money and they are not able to agree on anything. This is "powder" in the eyes of blind people who have forsaken the only true Elohim to follow the way of Satan. My question is: What do you think bring this temperature change, the Carbone as these so said scientist or the sins of the World? If you know the answer which is obvious you will understand a lot. They try to stop temperature to rise, but with their system promote, immorality, greed, homosexuality, war in the name of a so call "peace", use selection for stay permit in the so rich countries which are in endless debt e.g. France in 2009 now with 1 500 billions will reach the amount of two thousand billions debt, the US are close to Ten trillions debt. Greece fails to honour its debt and can run into Bankruptcy, today (2010) Ireland as just call EU for help with a 80 billion bailout Portugal is at the door and in spite of rejecting newspapers assumptions should be the next knocking at the EU for help Spain should follow soon, when France will come is not said but may be US will also be the nation falling in a shameful way soon also and others countries even Arabs country like Doubai as called his Neighbours for help to avoid bankruptcy. Mammon is the G-d of this World under the leadership of Satan. The only safe food to find today is at יהושע's feet receiving the Torah and be fed and safe.........
Gen 41:54 and the seven years of scarcity of food began to come, as Yosĕph had said. And the scarcity of food was in all lands, but in all the land of Mitsrayim there was bread. Gen 41:55 But when all the land of Mitsrayim hungered, and the people cried to Pharaoh for bread, Pharaoh said to all the Mitsrites, “Go to Yosĕph, do whatever he says to you.”  Gen 41:56 and the scarcity of food was over all the face of the earth, and Yosĕph opened all the storehouses and sold to the Mitsrites. And the scarcity of food was severe in the land of Mitsrayim.  Gen 41:57 and all the earth came to Yosĕph in Mitsrayim to buy grain, because the scarcity of food was severe in all the earth.
Chapter 42.Now we are going to see Yoseph (יהושע Messiah) taking care of his brethren, in the land of Egypt (world system). We will see the two aspect of messiah,
            ●A). The loving and carrying one who love and take care for his brethren
●B). The one who chastise, in order to bring back the House of Ya’acov to repentance (T’shuvah).
Verse 1 Ya’acov (a picture of Elohim the Father) send his children (full House of Israel) to Egypt (world system) to buy corn (bread of life) so that they may live and not die! See the spiritual meaning behind the P’shat.(literal) meaning. The dead are those who have no spiritual life; below some few examples of “dead” in the spiritual sense. Do not mistake me, this spiritual dead lead to the final death if it is not reversed by the life that is in יהושע Messiah.
Rom 4:19 and not having grown weak in belief, he did not consider his own body, already dead, being about a hundred years old, and the deadness of Sarah’s womb,
Abraham’s body was spiritually dead. At this time he was one hundred years old and we know that he will have other children after Sarah died with Keturah. 
Rom 6:7 For he who has died has been made right from sin.  Rom 6:11 So you also, reckon yourselves to be dead indeed to sin, but alive to Elohim in Messiah יהושע our Master. (to be dead to sin is to have no power to transgress the Torah) Rom 7:6 But now we have been released from the Torah, having died to what we were held by, so that we should serve in newness of Spirit and not in oldness of letter.  Eph 2:5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Messiah – by favour you have been saved.
People who are not quickened by Messiah יהושע are considered to be “dead”, they have no substance (the Ruach of יהושע) in themselves to be raised from the dead at the first resurrection.
Gen 42:1 and when Yaʽaqoḇ saw that there was grain in Mitsrayim, Yaʽaqoḇ said to his sons, “Why do you look at each other?”  Gen 42:2 and he said, “See, I have heard that there is grain in Mitsrayim. Go down to that place and buy for us there, and let us live and not die.”  Gen 42:3 and Yosĕph’s ten brothers went down to buy grain in Mitsrayim.       
Verse 3. Yoseph’s ten brethren. Ten is the number for the sum of all number. Greg Killian writes:” Ten- The number designating a complete whole – representing the whole direction which Elohim exercises. According to the book of Yasher they went down during the twentieth year of Yospeh been in Egypt: Twelve years spent between Potiphar's service and jails, seven years during the time of harvest abundance and the beginning of the Famine during the Twentieth year.   Testimony as the way; the word (dabar) has Ten Commandments. A testimony can be good or bad. The knowledge of a good vs. evil message: Satan. Those that have the testimony of יהוה (those that know the way)”.  
Verse 3……they went down……..An indication for lowing themselves, the time has now come to bow down before Yoseph.  Benjamin does not go at first! We are going to try to understand why later.
Gen 42:4 but Yaʽaqoḇ did not send Yosĕph’s brother Binyamin with his brothers, for he said, “Lest some harm come to him.”Gen 42:5 and the sons of Yisra’ĕl went to buy grain among those who journeyed, for the scarcity of food was in the land of Kenaʽan.  Gen 42:6 and Yosĕph was the governor over the land, he was the one who sold to all the people of the land. And Yosĕph’s brothers came and bowed down before him with their faces to the earth.  
Yoseph ruled over Mitzrayim like יהושע rule over the all world, “and Yoseph’s brothers came and bowed down before him with their faces to the earth”. Do you remember Yoseph’s dream? Yoseph in Breshit 37 had two dreams. The first we read that only his brother’s sheaves bowed down to his sheaf (verse 7) this is Ya’acov’s children first coming to Egypt. .........
Gen 37:5 and Yosĕph dreamed a dream, and told it to his brothers. So they hated him even more.  Gen 37:6 and he said to them, “Please listen to this dream which I have dreamed:  Gen 37:7 “See, we were binding sheaves in the midst of the field, and see, my sheaf rose up and also stood up. And see, your sheaves stood all around and bowed down to my sheaf.” Gen 37:8 and his brothers said to him, Shall you indeed reign over us? Shall you indeed rule over us?” So they hated him even more for his dreams and for his words.
Back to the today’s Parasha.  
Gen 42:7 and Yosĕph saw his brothers and recognised them, but he acted as a stranger to them and spoke to them harshly, and said to them, “Where do you come from?” And they said, “From the land of Kenaʽan to buy food.” Gen 42:8 so Yosĕph recognised his brothers, but they did not recognise him.
7-8 Read:  
---- Joh 7:8 “You go up to this festival. I am not yet going up to this festival, for My time has not yet been filled.”  Joh 7:9 and having said this to them, He stayed in Galil.  Joh 7:10 but when His brothers had gone up to the festival, then He also went up, not openly, but as it were in secret.  Joh 7:11 The Yehuḏim, therefore, were seeking Him at the festival, and said, “Where is He?”
Gen 42:9 And Yosĕph remembered the dreams which he had dreamed about them, and said to them, “You are spies! You have come to see the nakedness of the land!”
10-17. Time of testing has come for Yoseph’s brethren, for three days. Three is also a divine number which also demonstrate completion of beginning, middle and end, or past, present and future, or thoughts, words and deeds.    The third day is the time of salvation, the “Millennium” .................
Question: Who will bow down to יהושע when he comes back, are not all of the House of Ya'acov to bow down before Him? And not only them but the all world!  יהוה gave this dreams to Yoseph so that he could remember when time has come that it is יהוה' will and to reveal what will be with our Master יהושע, no coincidence.
For testing read:
Pro 3:11 My son, do not despise the discipline of יהוה, and do not loathe His reproof;
Pro 3:12 for whom יהוה loves He reproves, as a father the son whom he delights in Heb.12:5 and you have forgotten the appeal which speaks to you as to sons, “My son, do not despise the discipline of יהוה, nor faint when you are reproved by Him,  Heb 12:6 for whom יהוה loves, He disciplines, and flogs every son whom He receives.”1 Footnote: 1Prov. 3:11-12. Heb 12:7 If you endure discipline, Elohim is treating you as sons. For what son is there whom a father does not discipline?   Heb 12:8 but if you are without discipline, of which all have become sharers, then you are illegitimate (bastard) and not sons.  Heb 12:9 Moreover, we indeed had fathers of our flesh disciplining us, and we paid them respect. Shall we not much rather be subject to the Father of spirits, and live? Heb 12:10 for they indeed disciplined us for a few days as seemed best to them, but He does it for our profit, so that we might share His apartness (2nd Tessal.1:4-5).
Heb 12:11 and indeed, no discipline seems pleasant at the time, but grievous, but afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it.
Verse 15 Yospeh requires of his brethren that they bring Benjamin, his brother from Rahel (Rachel) their common mother. Benjamin is the only one, not having been born in the House of Laban the pagan and idolater uncle, but on the way back to Canaan. Benjamin means “son of the right hand”. The right side is the side of “mercy”. Benjamin was later after the splitting of the kingdom into two Houses, to be joined to the House of Yahudah (1 King 12:18-21, 2nd Chronicle 11:12, Roman 11:1) . 
1Ki 12:18 and when Sovereign Reḥaḇʽam sent Aḏoram, who was over the compulsory labour, all Yisra’ĕl stoned him with stones, and he died. And Sovereign Reḥaḇʽam hastily mounted his chariot to flee to Yerushalayim.  1Ki 12:19 Thus Yisra’ĕl revolted against the house of Dawiḏ to this day.  1Ki 12:20 and it came to be when all Yisra’ĕl heard that Yeroḇʽam had come back, they sent for him and called him to the congregation, and set him up to reign over all Yisra’ĕl. There was none who followed the house of Dawiḏ, except the tribe of Yehuḏah only. 1Ki 12:21 and Reḥaḇʽam came to Yerushalayim, and he assembled all the house of Yehuḏah with the tribe of Binyamin, one hundred and eighty thousand chosen brave men, to fight against the house of Yisra’ĕl, to bring back the reign to Reḥaḇʽam son of Shelomoh.  2Ch 11:12 and shields and spears in every city, and made them very strong. Thus Yehuḏah and Binyamin were his . 
Rom 11:1 I say then, has Elohim rejected His people? Let it not be! For I also am a Yisra’ĕlite, of the seed of Aḇraham, of the tribe of Binyamin...............
Today, Benjamites are also considered to be “Jews” and we are going to see that Yoseph (Messiah) will make himself known to his brethren first through Benjamin. Could it be that today many from the so called “Jews” having turned to Messiah are those “Benjamin” the First “Jews” having recognize Messiah יהושע (Yoseph), while those of Yoseph’s House (Ephraim) will be encouraged to walk in the Torah through their examples?..........
Gen 42:10 and they said to him, “No, my master, but your servants have come to buy food.  Gen 42:11 “We are all one man’s sons, we are trustworthy, your servants are not spies.”
Gen 42:12 But he said to them, “No, but you have come to see the nakedness of the land.” Gen 42:13 And they said, “Your servants are twelve brothers, the sons of one man in the land of Kenaʽan. And see, the youngest is with our father today, and one is no more.” Gen 42:14 And Yosĕph said to them, “It is as I spoke to you, saying, ‘You are spies!’
Gen 42:15 “By this you shall be proven: By the life of Pharaoh, you do not leave this place unless your youngest brother comes here. Gen 42:16 “Send one of you, and let him bring your brother, while you are kept in prison. So let your words be proven to see whether there is any truth in you, or else, by the life of Pharaoh, you are spies!” Gen 42:17 and he put them all together in prison for three days.
 Gen 42:18 Now Yosĕph said to them the third day, “Do this and live, for I fear Elohim: ----- 19-22. Beginning of repentance:
Hos 5:15 “I shall go, I shall return to My place, until they confess their guilt and seek My face, in their distress diligently search for Me, and say,
Hos 6:1 ‘Come, and let us turn back to יהוה. For He has torn but He does heal us, He has stricken but He binds us up ………
Verse 21: Gen 42:21  And they said to each other, “Truly, we are guilty concerning our brother, for we saw the distress of his life when he pleaded with us, yet we did not listen, that is why this distress has come upon us.”
Let us see something hidden in the sod in verse 21:
Jeremiah 30: 7 Alas! for that day is great, so that none is like it: it is even the time of Jacob's trouble; but he shall be saved out of it.
Here the word for "distress” and for "trouble" is the Hebrew word:
Storng's #HH6869 צָּרָה tsarah (tsaw-raw') n-f.
1. tightness (i.e. figuratively, trouble)
2. transitively, a female rival
[feminine of H6862]
KJV: adversary, adversity, affliction, anguish, distress, tribulation, trouble.
Root(s): H6862
Now let us compare with the words of Yeshua:
Matt.7: 13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
Narrow: Strong's G2346 θλίβω thlibo (thlee'-bo) v.
1. to crowd
{literally or figuratively}
[akin to the base of G5147]
KJV: afflict, narrow, throng, suffer tribulation, trouble
Yeshua is saying in essence, that those who want to enter the gate, will have to go through tribulation , which is the same word in Hebrew. What a great revelation! Yehowah speaks the end for the Beginning.
Verse 25 Yoseph (Messiah) fill their sack. He gives food like Messiah gives food to his brethren.....
We read something interesting from the book of Yasher concerning the intention of Yoseph’s brethren in the chapter 51,...
6. and whilst the sons of Jacob were going on the road, they repented of what they had done to Joseph, and they spoke to each other, saying, We know that our brother Joseph went down to Egypt, and now we will seek him where we go, and if we find him we will take him from his master for a ransom, and if not, by force, and we will die for him. 7. And the sons of Jacob agreed to this thing and strengthened themselves on account of Joseph, to deliver him from the hand of his master, and the sons of Jacob went to Egypt; and when they came near to Egypt they separated from each other, and they came
through ten gates of Egypt, and the gate keepers wrote their names on that day, and brought them to Joseph in the evening. 
Yoseph knew of the coming of his brethren because he had put gate keepers over the all entrance “doors” in Egypt, and the gate keepers were required to write the name of every man and his family members before he could enter Egypt.   When I read what Yoseph did, it is amazing what we can see today in our countries with control all for the so called “wellbeing” of citizens from this countries. This is really the work of the Anti-Messiah. Today, you cannot enter legally in Europe if you are not registered and fill all required documents from the secular governments. The new passports are digital and no way to fake them.
Gen 42:19 “If you are trustworthy, let one of your brothers be confined to your prison house, and you, go, bring grain for the scarcity of food of your houses. Gen 42:20 “And bring your youngest brother to me, and let your words be confirmed, and you do not die.” And so they did.  Gen 42:21 and they said to each other, “Truly, we are guilty concerning our brother, for we saw the distress of his life when he pleaded with us, yet we did not listen, that is why this distress has come upon us.”
Gen 42:22 and Re’uḇĕn answered them, saying, “Did I not speak to you, saying, ‘Do not sin against the boy,’ and you would not listen? And see, his blood is now required of us.”  Gen 42:23 and they did not know that Yosĕph understood them, for he spoke to them through an interpreter. Gen 42:24 and he turned himself away from them and wept, but came back to them and spoke to them. And he took Shimʽon from them and bound him before their eyes.  Gen 42:25 And Yosĕph commanded and they filled their sacks with grain, also to put back every man’s silver to his sack, and to give them food for the journey. And thus it was done for them.  Gen 42:26 so they loaded their donkeys with the grain and went from there.  Gen 42:27 and as one of them opened his sack to give his donkey fodder at the lodging place, he saw his silver, for there it was in the mouth of his sack!  Gen 42:28 and he said to his brothers, “My silver has been returned, and there it is, in my sack!” And their hearts sank and they were afraid, saying to each other, “What is this that Elohim has done to us?”  
29-38.We have seen that Yoseph (Messiah) gave back all gift to his brethren and gave them food. This is what יהושע has done for us and for his brethren from the house of Yehudah. Free gift, not by work for no man can give ransom for his own soul. We remember that the two dreams represent the two coming of Messiah. The first time they will not recognize him and Benjamin is not with them! This is very important because we know that it is through Benjamin, Yoseph’s brother that they will be able to recognize him.
Can you see that Yoseph in spite of having been sold by his brethren fed them and wait patiently, because Benjamin was not there to receive their repentance? I have asked many times why did Yoseph send them back and waited that Benjamin came. The point here is that unless ALL the House of Ya'acov repent it was not possible for Yoseph to make himself known to them. So it is also with יהושע unless all the Household of Ya'acov including the "Jews" with Benjamin repentance is not full. This will be when the Fullness of nation has come in (Rom 11:25).   .....Have you tried to give something to יהוה in order to change something? May be as required by some pastors, tithe or money in order to be blessed? We learn here that all was for free. Yoseph was to protect his brethren during the famine; he rejected all their gifts, money. He was placed at the side of Pharaoh by Elohim for this purpose. Do you understand now the position of יהושע at the right hand of the Father?  We have now the struggle to bring Benjamin to Yoseph (Messiah). This is part of changing which each of us goes through. Ya’acov (Elohim) does not want to let go Benjamin because he is not convinced that they are changed, but Yoseph condition is that Benjamin come to him. Messiah will reveal himself to the all House of Ya’acov, no one will be missed. We have seen that Yoseph (Messiah) is in Egypt (world system) with his two sons, Manasheh and Ephraim (House of Israel). At their first coming in Egypt for corn Yoseph’s brethren were not able to recognize their brother; they were too busy seeking for food and not the “giver of food”. Their repentance was not completed.   At the first coming of Messiah, the Yehudin were not ready to recognize יהושע to be:  a) Their brother,   b) Messiah, they rejected him. They would have to go through the two days (2000 years) before they can recognize him.......How is it that today most of the "Jews" do not recognize their brethren, they also (Jews) for a great part scattered in the four corners of the world?
Gen 42:29 so they came to Yaʽaqoḇ their father in the land of Kenaʽan and reported to him all that befell them, saying, Gen 42:30 “The man, the master of the land, spoke to us harshly, and took us for spies of the land.  Gen 42:31 “But we said to him, ‘We are trustworthy, we are not spies.  Gen 42:32 ‘We are twelve brothers, sons of our father. One is no more, and the youngest is today with our father in the land of Kenaʽan.’ Gen 42:33 “And the man, the master of the land, said to us, ‘By this I know that you are trustworthy: Leave one of your brothers here with me, and take food for the scarcity of food of your households, and go. Gen 42:34 ‘and bring your youngest brother to me, then I know that you are not spies, but that you are trustworthy – I give your brother to you, and you move about in the land.’ ”  Gen 42:35 and it came to be as they emptied their sacks, that look, the bundle of each man’s silver was in his sack! And when they and their father saw the bundles of silver, they were afraid.  Gen 42:36 and Yaʽaqoḇ their father said to them, “You have bereaved me (afflicted)– Yosĕph is no more, and Shimʽon is no more, and you would take Binyamin! All this is against me.”  Gen 42:37 so Re’uḇĕn spoke to his father, saying, “Take the lives of my two sons if I do not bring him back to you. Put .him in my hands, and I myself bring him back to you.”  Gen 42:38 but he said, “My son is not going down with you, for his brother is dead, and he is left alone. If any harm should come to him along the way in which you go, then you would bring down my grey hair with sorrow to the grave.”
Can you see the action the remaining children of Ya'acov have to go back to the Father in order to bring Benjamin with them? We have here an allusion to the situation what happen before יהושע will make himself known to his brethren from Yehuda. They will have to go to the Father (Elohim) and plead with him and go all together with Benjamin. We will see in the next Parsha how Benjamin will first recognize his brother Yoseph which reflect what happen today with many so call "Jews" who have recognize their brother יהושע
Zec 12:10 and I will pour upon the house of David (Yehuda), and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of favour and of supplications: and they shall look upon me (read him) whom they have pierced, and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and she will be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his firstborn.......
Here the confusion reigns because of the "me" which lead many thinking that the one pierced was יהוה, but if you red careful you will see that him, יהושע.was pierced Some text render it with:……..
JPS Translation:
Zec 12:10  And I will pour upon the house of David, and upon the inhabitants of Jerusalem, the spirit of grace and of supplication; and they shall look unto Me because they have thrust him through; and they shall mourn for him, as one mourneth for his only son, and shall be in bitterness for him, as one that is in bitterness for his first-born.

Indeed when they look to יהוה it is because He is the one who gave His Son יהושע whom they pierced. How come that יהוה can be pierced if he is not יהושע? Just think the answer is simple and require just a bit Hebrew understanding, I give you a hint: Read Yochanan 1:1-14 without fancy interpretation, but just as it is written!
Chapter 43. --- We now come to the second going down to Egypt from Ya’acov’s children including Benjamin to meet Yoseph (Messiah). The wording is very important because it unveil many hidden truth. First of all verses 8-9 it is Yehudah who offer himself as guarantee for Benjamin’s life. Remember it was also Yehudah who sold Yospeh to the Ishmaelites (chap. 37:26-27) and it was the Yehudin who brought יהושע to Pilate:
Joh 18:28 then led they Yehoshua from Caiaphas unto the hall of judgment: and it was early; and they themselves went not into the judgment hall, lest they should be defiled; but that they might eat the passover.
Joh 18:29 Pilate then went out unto them, and said, what accusation bring ye against this man?
Joh 18:30 tThey answered and said unto him, If he were not a malefactor, we would not have delivered him up unto thee. Joh 18:31 Then said Pilate unto them, Take ye him, and judge him according to your law. The Jews therefore said unto him, It is not lawful for us to put any man to death:  Act 3:12 and when Kepha 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? Act 3:13 The Elohim of Abraham, and of Isaac, and of Jacob, the Elohim of our fathers, hath glorified his Son Yehoshua; whom ye delivered up, and denied him in the presence of Pilate, when he was determined to let him go. Act 3:14 but ye denied the Holy One and the Just, and desired a murderer to be granted unto you; Act 3:15 and killed the Prince of life, whom YHWH hath raised from the dead; whereof we are witnesses.
יהוה after the death and resurrection of יהושע waited forty years until the year seventy and because the "Jews" didn't repent, he let Vespasian and Titus destroy the Temple and Jerusalem. Since then the Yehudin have lived their own life following not יהוה but the rabies and the Talmud while יהושע was in Egypt (World) to rescue his brothers from Ephraim, the House of Israel.
Back to our today's parasha:
This is now part of the restoration, through repentance at the second coming before יהושע. Yehudah will take the responsibility for his brother who has been later assimilated and joined to the tribe of Yehudah. In the book of Nehemiah we see the Yehudin coming back from their captivity, together with Benjamin (Nehemayah 11:31). The all book of Nehemiah describe the returning from Babylon’s captivity together with Benjamin at the end of the seventy years.  B’reshit chapter 43 Elohim unveil what is about to occur many centuries later.
Verse 6 The Torah uses the name “Israel” for Ya’acov. Verse 7 we see that they have not recognize Yoseph (Messiah). It is the “first advent” or first coming, Ya’acov’s children are still blind by their own righteousness.
Verse 8 Yehudah will now take responsibility for his brother Benjamin, the process of restoration will start. This is how it is today Benjamin and Yehuda equal “Jews”.
Verse 9 Yehudah will be guarantee for Benjamin’s wellbeing and shall “pay” if anything happen to him, bearing the blame! Yehudah has changed and is now sincere in his engagement.   
Verse 10. The word for “lingered or delayed” in “for if we had not delayed” (lingered) is the Hebrew word Strong’s # H4102 מההּ mâhahh maw-hah' Apparently a denominative from H4100; properly to question or hesitate, that is, (by implication) to be reluctant: - delay, linger, stay selves, tarry.
This word is used only twice in the Torah. This demonstrates the importance of this word. We see that in the “sod” the meaning of the “reluctance”, “hesitation”, “questioning”, “delay” was for two days (2000 years) before they could see their brother Yoseph (Messiah).   The other time this word is used is when יהוה’s messengers went to Lot, Abraham’s nephew to deliver him from the wrath to come (B’reshit 19:16)
This word “mahahh” is related to the “lost time” between the first time they went to Egypt and the second time when Yoseph will reveal himself to them. We see the deep meaning or what is going on in the world today. The all struggle what our brethren from Yehudah are undergoing is a spiritual struggle which will be finished on “the third day”, when יהושע Messiah will make himself known to them.
Hos 6:2 After two days He shall revive us, on the third day He shall raise us up, so that we live before Him.
At his first coming Yoseph’s brother “delayed”, they “lingered” (mahahh) and didn’t recognized him, because their heart was not right and יהושע could not establish the Kingdom of Elohim. Remember יהושע was to be king, he was King David’s right heir, nevertheless he chooses to lie down is life for us, in order to redeem us!
Gen 43:1 but the scarcity of food was severe in the land. Gen 43:2 and it came to be, when they had eaten up the grain which they had brought from Mitsrayim, that their father said to them, “Go back, buy us a little food.” Gen 43:3 but Yehuḏah spoke to him, saying, “The man vehemently warned us, saying, ‘You do not see my face unless your brother is with you.’ ” Gen 43:4 “If you let our brother go with us, we go down and buy you food. Gen 43:5 “But if you do not let him go, we do not go down, because the man said to us, ‘You do not see my face unless your brother is with you.’ ” Gen 43:6 And Yisra’ĕl said, “Why did you do evil to me to inform the man that you still had another brother?” Gen 43:7 and they said, “The man kept asking about us and our relatives, saying, ‘Is your father still alive? Have you another brother?’ And we informed him according to these words. How could we know that he would say, ‘Bring your brother down’?” Gen 43:8 and Yehuḏah said to Yisra’ĕl his father, “Send the boy with me, and let us arise and go, and live and not die, both we and you and also our little ones. Gen 43:9I myself shall stand guaranty for him – from my hand you are to require him. If I do not bring him back to you and set him before you, then let me bear the blame forever. Gen 43:10 “For if we had not delayed, truly by now we could have returned this second time.”
11-15.They took the best they have to convince Yoseph (Messiah) of their intention. This is a picture of the change of their attitudes; their heart is in the process of restoration and change. They are now ready to be confronted to their brother Yoseph (Messiah).
Gen 43:11 and their father Yisra’ĕl said to them, “If so, then do this: Take some of the best fruit of the land in your vessels and bring a present down for the man, a little balm and a little honey, spices and myrrh, nuts and almonds.
Gen 43:12 “And take double silver in your hand, and take back in your hand the silver that was returned in the mouth of your sacks. It could have been a mistake. Gen 43:13 “And take your brother, and arise, go back to the man.
The book of Yasher gives much more details about the condition of their second trip to Egypt. Let us read and enjoy:
Yasher 53 ---10. And Jacob said unto them, and have you not seen how your children have been weeping over me this day, saying, Give unto us bread, and there is none? Now therefore return and buy for us a little food. 11. and Judah answered and said unto his father, If thou wilt send our brother with us we will go down and buy corn for thee, and if thou wilt not send him then we will not go down, for surely the king of Egypt particularly enjoined us, saying, You shall not see my face unless your brother be with you, for the king of Egypt is a strong and mighty king, and behold if we shall go to him without our brother we shall all be put to death. 12. Dost thou not know and hast thou not heard that this king is very powerful and wise, and there is not like unto him in all the earth? behold we have seen all the kings of the earth and we have not seen one like that king, the king of Egypt; surely amongst all the kings of the earth there is none greater than Abimelech king of the Philistines, yet the king of Egypt is greater and mightier than he, and Abimelech can only be compared to one of his officers. 13. Father, thou hast not seen his palace and his throne, and all his servants standing before him; thou hast not seen that king upon his throne in his pomp and royal appearance, dressed in his kingly robes with a large golden crown upon his head; thou hast not seen the honor and glory which God has given unto him, for there is not like unto him in all the earth.
14. Father, thou hast not seen the wisdom, the understanding and the knowledge which God has given in his heart, nor heard his sweet voice when he spake unto us. 15. We know not, father, who made him acquainted with our names and all that befell us, yet he asked also after thee, saying, Is your father still living, and is it well with him? 16. Thou hast not seen the affairs of the government of Egypt regulated by him, without inquiring of Pharaoh his Master (sound like Messiah having received authority from YHWH!); thou hast not seen the awe and fear which he impressed upon all the Egyptians. 17. and also when we went from him, we threatened to do unto Egypt like unto the rest of the cities of the Amorites, and we were exceedingly wroth against all his words which he spoke concerning us as spies, and now when we shall again come before him his terror will fall upon us all, and not one of us will be able to speak to him either a little or a great thing. 18. Now therefore father, send we pray thee the lad with us, and we will go down and buy thee food for our support, and not die through hunger. And Jacob said, Why have you dealt so ill with me to tell the king you had a brother? what is this thing that you have done unto me? 19. and Judah said unto Jacob his father, Give the lad into my care and we will rise up and go down to Egypt and buy corn, and then return, and it shall be when we return if the lad be not with us, then let me bear thy blame forever. 22. And Jacob said unto his sons, I trust in YHWH God that he may deliver you and give you favor in the sight of the king of Egypt, and in the sight of all his men. 23. Now therefore rise up and go to the man, and take for him in your hands a present from what can be obtained in the land and bring it before him, and may the Almighty God give you mercy before him that he may send Benjamin and Simeon your brethren with you. 26. And Jacob rose up from his sons and spread forth his hands and he prayed unto YHWH on account of his sons, saying, YHWH God of heaven and earth, remember thy covenant with our father Abraham, remember it with my father Isaac and deal kindly with my sons and deliver them not into the hands of the king of Egypt; do it I pray thee O God for the sake of thy mercies and redeem all my children and rescue them from Egyptian power, and send them their two brothers. 27. and all the wives of the sons of Jacob and their children lifted up their eyes to heaven and they all wept before YHWH, and cried unto him to deliver their fathers from the hand of the king of Egypt. 28. and Jacob wrote a record to the king of Egypt and gave it into the hand of Judah and into the hands of his sons for the king of Egypt, saying, 29. from thy servant Jacob, son of Isaac, son of Abraham the Hebrew, the prince of God, to the powerful and wise king, the revealer of secrets (Zaphnath-Paaneah;), king of Egypt, greeting. 30. Be it known to my master the king of Egypt, the famine was sore upon us in the land of Canaan, and I sent my sons to thee to buy us a little food from thee for our support. 31. for my sons surrounded me and I being very old cannot see with my eyes, for my eyes have become very heavy through age, as well as with daily weeping for my son, for  Joseph who was lost from before me, and I commanded my sons that they should not enter the gates of the city when they came to Egypt, on account of the inhabitants of the land. 32. and I also commanded them to go about Egypt to seek for my son Joseph, perhaps they might find him there, and they did so, and thou didst consider them as spies of the land. 33. Have we not heard concerning thee that thou didst interpret Pharaoh's dream and didst speak truly unto him? how then dost thou not know in thy wisdom whether my sons are spies or not? 34. Now therefore, my master and king, behold I have sent my son before thee, as thou didst speak unto my sons; I beseech thee to put thy eyes upon him until he is returned to me in peace with his brethren. 35. for dost thou not know, or hast thou not heard that which our God did unto Pharaoh when he took my mother Sarah, and what he did unto Abimelech king of the Philistines
on account of her, and also what our father Abraham did unto the nine kings of Elam, how he smote them all with a few men that were with him? 36. and also what my two sons Simeon and Levi did unto the eight cities of the Amorites, how they destroyed them on account of their sister Dinah? 37. And also on account of their brother Benjamin they consoled themselves for the loss of his brother Joseph; what will they then do for him when they see the hand of any people prevailing over them, for his sake? 38. Dost thou not know, O king of Egypt, that the power of God is with us, and that also God ever heareth our prayers and forsaketh us not all the days?
39. and when my sons told me of thy dealings with them, I called not unto YHWH on account of thee, for then thou wouldst have perished with thy men before my son Benjamin came before thee, but I thought that as Simeon my son was in thy house, perhaps thou mightest deal kindly with him, therefore I did not this thing unto thee.
40. Now therefore behold Benjamin my son cometh unto thee with my sons, take heed of him and put thy eyes upon him, and then will God place his eyes over thee and throughout thy kingdom. 41. Now I have told thee all that is in my heart, and behold my sons are coming to thee with their brother, examine the face of the whole earth for their sake and send them back in peace with their brethren. 42. And Jacob gave the record to his sons into the care of Judah to give it unto the king of Egypt.
This text is so beautiful; in the “sod” that we can see what our heavenly father has hidden many centuries from the eyes of men, they couldn’t understand. Like Ya’acov sons, the heart of our forefathers were not right and they didn’t understood that only repentance will bring back Yoseph (messiah) and so the whole House of Ya’acov will be reunited has it is spoken by the prophets......Ya'acov' sons brought gifts and pleasant fruits, can you see in the sod the meaning?...
Gen 43:11 and their father Yisra’ĕl said to them, “If so, then do this: Take some of the best fruit of the land in your vessels and bring a present down for the man, a little balm and a little honey, spices and myrrh, nuts and almonds. Gen 43:12 “And take double silver in your hand, and take back in your hand the silver that was returned in the mouth of your sacks. It could have been a mistake. .......
After reading these two verses and to understand we need to read what Yochanan the immerser says to the Yehudin:
Mat 3:7 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come?
Mat 3:8 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for repentance:
Can you see the connection? Ya'acov' s children brought pleasant fruits and silver which was the money to buy!   Only true repentance will restore Ya'acov Israel as it was with Yoseph so will it be with יהושע when the House of Yehuda will repent, the all house of Ya'acov will be restored unto their brother יהושע . Yoseph didn't accepted the gifts because they came from his father, can you see the duality between Yoseph and יהושע who is like Yoseph only looking for repentance?...............
Gen 43:14 “And Ěl Shaddai give to you compassion before the man, so that he shall release your other brother and Binyamin. And I, if I am bereaved, I am bereaved!” Gen 43:15 and the men took that present and Binyamin, and they took double the amount of silver in their hand, and arose and went down to Mitsrayim, and stood before Yosĕph. Gen 43:16 And Yosĕph saw Binyamin with them, and said to the one over his house, “Bring the men home, and make a great slaughter, and prepare, for these men are to eat with me at noon.”
16-34. ---- Now Yoseph (Messiah) sees Benjamin (son of my right hand). In fact today we can see from the house of Yehudah (Jews), the first walking in the Torah and seeing Yehoshua as Messiah are spiritual Benjamin.  Yoseph decide to make a feast which is a picture of the feast which will take place when Messiah will return, for the marriage of the Lamb (Rev.19:7-9).
The brethren are still anxious because they don’t know if Simeon will be released once the “master” Yoseph (Messiah) will have seen Benjamin.  23. Yoseph (Messiah) gives them comfort and release Simeon.
26. “They bowed themselves to the earth”. In B’reshit 37 Yoseph dreamed that his brethren will bow before him with his eleven brothers, this was the first dream!   Gen 43:17 and the man did as Yosĕph said, and the man brought the men into Yosĕph’s house. Gen 43:18 and the men were afraid because they were brought into Yosĕph’s house. And they said, “It is because of the silver, which was put back into our sacks the first time, that we are brought in, to throw himself upon us and fall upon us, to take us as slaves, our donkeys too.”  Gen 43:19 So they came near to the man over the house of Yosĕph, and spoke to him at the door of the house, Gen 43:20 and said, “O my master, we indeed came down the first time to buy food, Gen 43:21 but it came to be, when we came to the lodging place, that we opened our sacks and saw each man’s silver in the mouth of his sack, our silver in its weight. And we have brought it back in our hand. Gen 43:22 “And we have brought down other silver in our hands to buy food. We do not know who put our silver in our sacks.” Gen 43:23 But he said, “Peace be with you, do not be afraid. Your Elohim and the Elohim of your father has given you treasure in your sacks – your silver had come to me!” And he brought Shimʽon out to them. Gen 43:24 and the man brought the men into Yosĕph’s house and gave them water, and they washed their feet. And he gave their donkeys fodder. Gen 43:25 and they made the present ready for Yosĕph’s coming at noon, for they heard that they were to eat there. Gen 43:26 and when Yosĕph came home, they brought him the present which was in their hand, into the house, and bowed down before him to the earth. Gen 43:27 and he asked them about their welfare, and said, “Is your father well, the old man of whom you spoke? Is he still alive?” Gen 43:28 and they said, “Your servant our father is in good health, he is still alive.” And they bowed their heads down and did obeisance.
Gen 43:29 and he lifted his eyes and saw his brother Binyamin, his mother’s son, and said, “Is this your younger brother of whom you spoke to me?” And he said, “Elohim show favour to you, my son.” Gen 43:30 and Yosĕph hurried, for his emotions were deeply moved towards his brother, and he looked for a place to weep, and went into his room and wept there. Gen 43:31 then he washed his face and came out, and controlled himself, and said, “Serve the food.”
29-34. ---- The appearing of Benjamin brings great emotion to Yoseph as he can see all his brothers. The last part of the restoration will take place.....The book of Yasher tells us the reason why Yoseph was weeping, but let us read:   ---- 53: 6. And Judah took Benjamin by the hand, and they came before Joseph, and they bowed
down to him to the ground.  7. and the men gave the present unto Joseph and they all sat before him, and Joseph said unto them, Is it well with you, is it well with your children, is it well with your aged father? and they said, It is well, and Judah took the record which Jacob had sent and gave it into the hand of Joseph.        
8. and Joseph read the letter and knew his father's writing, and he wished to weep and he went into an inner room and he wept a great weeping; and he went out. Ya’acov’s letter was the reason why Yoseph was crying.
Now concerning Benjamin in the same chapter 53: ---- 9. and he lifted up his eyes and beheld his brother Benjamin, and he said, Is this your brother of whom you spoke unto me? And Benjamin approached Joseph, and Joseph placed his hand upon his head and he said unto him, May God be gracious unto thee my son.
10. and when Joseph saw his brother, the son of his mother, he again wished to weep, and he entered the chamber, and he wept there, and he washed his face, and went out and refrained from weeping, and he said, Prepare food. ...........Yoseph will now organize the order at the table, but read more from the book of Yasher:
53:11. and Joseph had a cup from which he drank, and it was of silver beautifully inlaid with onyx stones and bdellium, and Joseph struck the cup in the sight of his brethren whilst they were sitting to eat with him. 12. and Joseph said unto the men, I know by this cup that Reuben the first born, Simeon and Levi and Judah, Issachar and Zebulun are children from one mother, seat yourselves to eat according to your births. 13. and he also placed the others according to their births, and he said, I know that this your youngest brother has no brother, and I, like him, have no brother, he shall therefore sit down to eat with me. 14. and Benjamin went up before Joseph and sat upon the throne, and the men beheld the acts of Joseph, and they were astonished at them; and the men ate and drank at that time with Joseph, and he then gave presents unto them, and Joseph gave one gift unto Benjamin, and Manasseh and Ephraim saw the acts of their father, and they also gave presents unto him, and Osnath gave him one present, and they were five presents in the hand of Benjamin. 15. and Joseph brought them out wine to drink, and they would not drink, and they said, From the day on which Joseph was lost we have not drunk wine, nor eaten any delicacies. 16. and Joseph swore unto them, and he pressed them hard, and they drank plentifully with him on that day, and Joseph afterward turned to his brother Benjamin to speak with him, and Benjamin was still sitting upon the throne before Joseph. 17. and Joseph said unto him, Hast thou begotten any children? and he said, Thy servant has ten sons, and these are their names, Bela, Becher, Ashbal, Gera, Naaman, Achi, Rosh, Mupim, Chupim, and Ord, and I called their names after my brother whom I have not seen.....................
Gen 43:32 and they set him a place by himself, and them by themselves, and the Mitsrites who ate with him by themselves, for the Mitsrites could not eat food with the Heḇrews, for that is an abomination to the Mitsrites.  Gen 43:33 and they sat before him, the first-born according to his birthright and the youngest according to his youth, and the men looked at each other in astonishment.  Gen 43:34 and he took portions to them from before him, but Binyamin’s portion was five times as much as any of theirs. And they feasted and they drank with him.
32.”the Mitsrites could not eat food with the Hebrews, for that is an abomination to the Mitsrites”.
This is very interesting has we know that today, the world system do not follow the Kosher laws according to the book of Vayiqrah 11. The world today call “delicacy” all what is consider unclean by the Torah. People from the world delight eating unclean food! Or to be “vegetarian” which is also against יהוה who gave meat for food.
Chapter 44. ---- We are going again in the book of Yasher to get understanding concerning the last part of our today’s parsha........Yasher 53 ---- 18. and he ordered them to bring before him his map of the stars, whereby Joseph knew all the times, and Joseph said unto Benjamin, I have heard that the Hebrews are acquainted
with all wisdom, dost thou know anything of this? 19. and Benjamin said, Thy servant is knowing also in all the wisdom which my father taught me, and Joseph said unto Benjamin, Look now at this instrument and understand where thy brother Joseph is in Egypt, who you said went down to Egypt. 20. and Benjamin beheld that instrument with the map of the stars of heaven, and he was wise and looked therein to know where his brother was, and Benjamin divided the whole land of Egypt into four divisions, and he found that he who was sitting upon the throne before him was his brother Joseph, and Benjamin wondered greatly, and when
Joseph saw that his brother Benjamin was so much astonished, he said unto Benjamin, What hast thou seen, and why art thou astonished? 21. and Benjamin said unto Joseph, I can see by this that Joseph my brother sitteth here with me upon the throne, and Joseph said unto him, I am Joseph thy brother, reveal not this thing unto thy brethren; behold I will send thee with them when they go away, and I will command them to be brought back again into the city, and I will take thee away from them. 22. and if they dare their lives and fight for thee, then shall I know that they have repented of what they did unto me, and I will make myself known to them, and if they forsake thee when I take thee, then shalt thou remain with me, and I will wrangle with them, and they shall go away, and I will not become known to them. 23. at that time Joseph commanded his officer to fill their sacks with food, and to put each man's money into his sack, and to put the cup in the sack of Benjamin, and to give them provision for the road, and they did so unto them. The statement from Yoseph in the verses 21-22 is very frightening. First Yoseph tells his brother Benjamin after he has recognized him, to say nothing to his brethren. How it is today, do those of Benjamin speak to the “Jews”. The few report I have seen or read speak of the same attitude that of Benjamin! The verse 22 Yoseph says that he will reveal himself ONLY if they dare fight for Benjamin, as a proof of their repentance.  Could this also happen before the second advent of יהושע? Time will tells may be when Yerushalayim will be surrender by the nations?  How did Benjamin saw in the stars? Psa 19:1 The heavens declare the glory of El; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.
Psa 19:2 Day unto day uttereth speech, and night unto night sheweth knowledge. Psa 136:9 The moon and stars to rule by night: for his mercy endureth for ever. Psa 147:4 He telleth the number of the stars; he calleth them all by their names. ..........Are you amazed that today so many people go to false fortune tellers? What does יהוה says to his Children?  Deu 18:10 There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch. Deu 18:11 Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.
Deu 18:12 for all that do these things are an abomination unto YHWH: and because of these abominations YHWH thy Elohim doth drive them out from before thee.  Deu 18:13 Thou shalt be perfect with YHWH thy Elohim .  ...........Gen 44:1 and he commanded the one over his house, saying, “Fill the men’s sacks with food, as they are able to bear, and put each man’s silver in the mouth of his sack.  Gen 44:2And put my cup, the silver cup, in the mouth of the sack of the youngest, and the silver for his grain.” And he did according to the word of Yosĕph which he spoke.  Gen 44:3 as soon as the morning was light, the men were sent away, they and their donkeys.  Gen 44:4 And when they had gone out of the city, not having gone far, Yosĕph said to the one over his house, “Rise up, follow the men, and when you overtake them, say to them, ‘Why have you repaid evil for good?  Gen 44:5 ‘Is this not the one from which my master drinks, and with which he indeed divines? You have done evil in what you have done.’ ”  Gen 44:6 so he overtook them and spoke these words to them.  Gen 44:7 and they said to him, “Why does my master say these words? Far be it from us that your servants should do according to this word.  Gen 44:8 “See, we brought back to you from the land of Kenaʽan the silver which we found in the mouth of our sacks. How then should we steal silver or gold from your master’s house?  Gen 44:9 “With whomever of your servants it is found – he shall die and we shall become my master’s slaves as well.”  Gen 44:10 and he said, “Now also let it be according to your words: he with whom it is found becomes my slave, and you are innocent.” Gen 44:11 and they hurried, each man let down his sack to the ground, and each opened his sack. Gen 44:12 and he searched, with the oldest first and with the youngest last, and the cup was found in Binyamin’s sack. Gen 44:13 and they tore their garments, and each man loaded his donkey and went back to the city.  Gen 44:14 and Yehuḏah and his brothers came to Yosĕph’s house, and he was still there. And they fell before him on the ground.  Gen 44:15 and Yosĕph said to them, “What deed is this you have done? Did you not know that a man like me indeed divines?”  Gen 44:16 and Yehuḏah said, “What do we say to my master? What do we speak? Or how do we clear ourselves? Elohim has found out the crookedness of your servants. See, we are my master’s slaves, both we and he also with whom the cup was found.” Gen 44:17 but he said, “Far be it from me to do this. The man in whose hand the cup was found, he becomes my slave. And you, go up in peace to your father.”
To finish this “parasha” I will take a note from Ortodox Jew quoted from Nathan Lawrence’s “parasha” which demonstrate that our brethren from Yehudah know about Ephraim dispersion and that Messiah will come for the whole House of Ya’acov: ---- Let’s note a startling statement from Orthodox Jewish sources: Mesorah Publications ArtScroll Bereishis, vol. 1(b) states in its commentary on Genesis 48:19 regarding Ephraim: “R. Munk explains: ‘while it is true that the dispersion [of the descendants of Ephraim and Manasseh] was caused by the unfaithfulness and sinfulness of Ephraim’s descendants (Hos 7:8ff), Jacob’s blessing was not in vain for “they will return to God” and will have their share in the world to come (Sanhedrin 110b).’ And R. Eliezer adds: ‘Even the darkness in which the Ten Tribes were lost will one day become as radiant as the day’ (according to the version of Avos d’Rabbi Nosson 36). And in the perspective of history, did not these exiled children of the Patriarchs enlighten the nations among whom they were scattered? They did so by teaching their conquerors the fundamental ideas of the knowledge and love of God, ideals they had never forsaken. Hence they too have a messianic vocation and their Messiah, the Mashiach ben Yosef, Messiah son of Joseph (Succah 52a), also called Messiah son of Ephraim (Targum Yonasan on Exodus 40:11), will play an essential role in humanity’s redemption, for he will be the precursor of the Mashiach ben David, Messiah Son of David. It is therefore not surprising to find that the prophet Jeremiah (3:12) speaks affectionately of Ephraim. In this light, Jacob’s words, ‘his offspring’s fame will fill the nations,’ assume the significance of a blessing” (pp. 2121–2122). (emphasis added)
Zec 3:1 and he showed me Yehoshua the high priest standing before the messenger of יהוה, and Satan standing at his right hand to be an adversary to him. Zec 3:2 and יהוה said to Satan, “יהוה rebuke you, Satan! יהוה who has chosen Yerushalayim rebuke you! Is this not a brand plucked from the fire?” Zec 3:3 And Yehoshua was dressed in filthy garments, and was standing before the messenger. Zec 3:4 and He answered and spoke to those who stood before Him, saying, “Remove the filthy garments from him.” And to him He said, “See, I have removed your guilt from you, and shall put costly robes on you.” Zec 3:5 and I said, “Let them put a clean turban on his head.” Then they put a clean turban on his head, and they put garments on him. And the messenger of יהוה stood by. Zec 3:6 and the messenger of יהוה witnessed to Yehoshua, saying, Zec 3:7 “Thus said יהוה of hosts, ‘If you walk in My ways, and if you guard My duty, then you shall also rule My house, and also guard My courts. And I shall give you access among these standing here. Zec 3:8 ‘Now listen, Yehoshua the high priest, you and your companions who sit before you, for they are men of symbol. For look, I am bringing forth My Servant – the Branch1. Footnote: 1Or Sprout. See Isa. 4:2, Isa. 11:1, Jer. 23:5, Jer. 33:15, Zech. 6:12….Zec 3:9 ‘See the stone which I have put before Yehoshua: on one stone are seven eyes. See, I am engraving its inscription,’ declares יהוה of hosts, ‘and I shall remove the guilt of that land in one day.  Zec 3:10 ‘In that day,’ declares יהוה of hosts, ‘you shall invite one another, under the vine and under the fig tree.’ ” Zec 4:1 and the messenger who was speaking to me came back and woke me up as a man is awakened from sleep.  Zec 4:2 and he said to me, “What do you see?” So I said, “I have looked, and see: a lampstand all of gold with a bowl on top of it, and on the stand seven lamps with seven spouts to the seven lamps.  Zec 4:3 “And two olive trees are by it, one at the right of the bowl and the other at its left.”  Zec 4:4 Then I responded and spoke to the messenger who was speaking to me, saying, “What are these, my master?” Zec 4:5 and the messenger who was speaking to me answered and said to me, “Do you not know what these are?” And I said, “No, my master.” Zec 4:6 and he answered and said to me, “This is the word of יהוה to Zerubbaḇel, ‘Not by might nor by power, but by My Spirit,’ said יהוה of hosts.
Zec 4:7 ‘Who are you, great mountain, before Zerubbaḇel? A plain! And he shall bring forth the capstone with shouts of “Favour, favour to it!” ’ ” Zec 4:8 and the word of יהוה came to me, saying,
In the account of Sh'lomoh we can learn that Messiah cannot be divided and will be given to the faithful one. The conclusion of this enigma is not easy. ……
I will quote from Nathan Lawrence (Hoshana Rabbah) who gives some clues: ---- Both the Parashah and Haftorah passages deal with prophetic dreams by kings and the future implications of those dreams upon their kingdoms.  Immediately after Solomon’s dream where he asks YHVH for wisdom, he is confronted with the opportunity to demonstrate his new gift of divinely originating wisdom. Is this story of the two unchaste women a prophetic shadow-picture of some future events to transpire with regard to the nation of Israel (notice verse 8)? Let’s examine the facts, and then see what prophetic implications may be contained in the story....................
The Facts Presented in the Text: ---- The story concerns two unchaste women. The two women live in one house. No husband is mentioned. The first woman gave birth to a child, and three days later the second woman gave birth to her child. The second woman killed her offspring when she smothered it while asleep. The second woman, instead of grieving the loss of her child, sought to rob the first woman of her child when at midnight, while the first woman slept she exchanged her dead child for the other woman’s live one. One woman cherished her offspring. Both women stood before Solomon, the king of Israel. The name Solomon (in Hebrew, Shlomo) derives from the Hebrew word shalom meaning “peace.” Solomon proposed to divide the living child by a sword and give half to each mother.  The real mother was willing to give her child to the other (lying) mother rather than to see it killed. The story does not tell us which mother, the first or second, was telling the truth. Possible Prophetic Interpretation --- In many places, Scripture likens the nation of Israel in its apostate or backslid state to an unchaste woman (e.g. Jer. 3; 18:13–15; Ezek. 16; the Book of Hosea). Scripture shows that the nation of Israel went from being a single woman (spiritually), to a woman with a split personality, if you will, when she became two nations (the Southern Kingdom [the House of Judah] and the Northern Kingdom [House of Israel, Samaria or Ephraim]). In this state, the Scripture likens her to two unchaste sisters: Aholah (Samaria) and Aholibah (Judah). (Ezek 23:4ff) Both women give birth to children—three days apart. If these two unchaste women symbolize the two houses of Israel represent Jews (the House of Judah) and Christians (the House of Israel/Ephraim), and three days, according to the year-for-a-day understanding of biblical prophecy (Ps 90:4; Hos. 5:13-6:3; 2 Pe­ter 3:8), represent three millennia what can we deduce? Could the first unchaste woman be Judah who gave birth to a child and killed it (i.e., Messiah Yeshua at his first coming), and then wanted to take the child of the other woman (Ephraim or Christianity) when he was born three prophetic days or three thousand years later (Yeshua at his second coming) and claim it as its own? Possibly, but the passage does not give us a clue as to which woman was which. So we can’t assume that the first woman was Judah. Indeed, there were many of Judah (or the Jews) who did accept Yeshua as their Messiah in the first century, but not long after the Gentile assembly, in a sense, “killed” the Jewishness of the Messiah and substituted for it a paganized Greco-Roman Western “Jesus.” Perhaps much of Christianity still longs for the Jewish baby it “killed” when it divorced itself from its Jewish roots. After all, what is the focal point of the greatest holiday in Christendom to this day? The babe in the manger! What can we conclude from this? Perhaps this passage is saying that both Houses of Israel are guilty of killing their Messiah-Child. Now let’s speculate on the end time implications of this story. Notice that both women appear before Solomon, the king of Israel, whose name means “peace.” Who is coming back as the Prince of Peace (in Hebrew, Sar Shalom) to rule from  Jerusalem over Israel and all the nations of the world during a one-thousand-year reign of glory and splendour like that of Solomon? At his second coming, Yeshua is coming as the Righteous Judge to divide the goats from the sheep (Matt 25:31–46), the unrighteous from the righteous, those who are liars versus those who abide in YHVH’s truth. In fact, at Yeshua’s return, what proceeds from his mouth? (See Rev 19:15, 21.) In Scripture, what does a sword represent? (Eph 6:17 and Heb 4:12). How will King Yeshua judge all people? (John 12:48; Rev 19:13; Deut 18:18–19) In our end-time scenario, Dr. Frank Morgan speculates that the sword could also represent the Great Tribulation. It will be during the Great Tribulation when the wheat (the righteous ones of YHVH) will be separated from the tares (the wicked ones). The woman (faithful Israelites from both houses of Israel) who truly loves the Son is revealed through this turmoil. Said another way, the King is able to discern the true “mother” (Believers from both houses of Israel) through this tribulation. We are given a clue as to who the real “mother” of the Messiah is by Yeshua himself in Luke 8:21, “And he answered and said unto them, ‘My mother and my brethren are these which hear the Word of Elohim, and do it.’” But since the story of the two unchaste women does not leave us with a clear conclusion as to which woman is Judah and which is Ephraim, would it be safe to deduce that within each of two houses of Israel there are sheep and goats: those who have heard and done the will of the Father, who have abided in the truth of his Word, and who loved and cherished the Messiah, and those who are wicked and unfaithful? Morgan observes that while before the king, the two women argued as to whose child it was. Will this happen at the return of Messiah Yeshua as well? Will the two houses of Israel be arguing about to whom Messiah belongs? Judaism will be saying, “yours died (was crucified),” this one is ours! Christianity will be saying: No! You killed yours and now you intend to take ours! In this way, these two women, depicting the two houses of Israel, are fighting for “ownership” of the “Son”.
David Pennington suggests the following about this story. Maybe this could be looked at in a reversal of intentions. Instead of dividing the child with the sword, we should be bringing it back together into one body (Yeshua). The Torah has been used for too long to cause division (separation of child); its purpose was to bring about unity not division. The sword of the Spirit is the word of Elohim (Eph 6:17; Heb. 4:12). The two harlots represent the sisters, Judah and Israel. Solomon represents peace and though he brought forth a sword to divide, Yeshua told Peter to put up the sword (John 18:11). Peerhaps the reason neither woman was definitely identified was because both Judah (the Jews) and Israel (or Ephraim/the Christians, see Rom 4:16; 9:8–11; Gal 3:7,9,14,28–29; Eph 2:11–19) have been guilty of the death of the other child (Messiah Son of Joseph, Yeshua at his first coming) and both claim motherhood of the living child (Messiah Son of David, Yeshua at his second coming). We would like to give special thanks to Lynn Davis, Dr. Frank Morgan, Batya Wootten, David Pennington and Trudy Ewing for their insight into this enigmatic passage of Scripture, which confirmed my thoughts and yielded some additional nuggets. The Rabbinic Jewish and Christian commentaries I read on this passage contributed little on its meaning and said nothing about any prophetic implications.
1Ki 3:15 and Shelomoh awoke, and see, it was a dream! And he came into Yerushalayim and stood before the ark of the covenant of יהוה, and offered up burnt offerings and made peace offerings. And he made a feast for all his servants.  1Ki 3:16 Then two women, whores, came to the sovereign, and stood before him.  1Ki 3:17 And one woman said, “O my master, this woman and I dwell in the same house. And I gave birth while she was in the house.  1Ki 3:18 “And it came to be, the third day after I had given birth, that this woman also gave birth. And we were together. There was no one else with us in the house, only the two of us in the house.  1Ki 3:19 “Then this woman’s son died in the night, because she lay on him.  1Ki 3:20 “And she rose up in the middle of the night and took my son from my side, while your female servant slept, and laid him in her bosom, and laid her dead child in my bosom.  1Ki 3:21 “And I rose up in the morning to nurse my son and saw he was dead. But I looked at him closely in the morning, and saw he was not my son whom I had borne.”  1Ki 3:22 and the other woman said, “No! But the living one is my son, and the dead one is your son.” And the first woman said, “No! For the dead one is your son, and the living one is my son.” And they spoke before the sovereign.  1Ki 3:23 and the sovereign said, “The one says, ‘This is my son, who lives, and your son is the dead one,’ while the other says, ‘No! For your son is the dead one, and my son is the living one.’ ”  1Ki 3:24 and the sovereign said, “Bring me a sword.” So they brought a sword before the sovereign.  1Ki 3:25 and the sovereign said, “Divide the living child in two, and give half to one, and half to the other.”  1Ki 3:26 and the woman whose son was living spoke to the sovereign, for she was overcome with compassion for her son. And she said, “O my master, give her the living child, and by no means kill him!” But the other said, “Let him be neither mine nor yours, but divide him.”  1Ki 3:27 and the sovereign answered and said, “Give the first woman the living child, and by no means kill him – she is his mother.”
1Ki 3:28 and all Yisra’ĕl heard of the right- ruling which the sovereign had rendered. And they feared the sovereign, for they saw that the wisdom of Elohim was in him to do right-ruling. 1Ki 4:1 and it came to be that Sovereign Shelomoh was sovereign over all Yisra’ĕl.  1Co 2:1 and, when I came to you, brothers, I did not come with excellence of speech or wisdom, proclaiming to you the witness of Elohim.  1Co 2:2 for I resolved not to know any matter among you except יהושע Messiah and Him impaled. 1Co 2:3 and I was with you in weakness, and in fear, and in much trembling.
1Co 2:4 and my word and my preaching were not with persuasive words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,  1Co 2:5 in order that your belief should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of Elohim.
Sha’ul gives us the conclusion of this "midrash” do not put your trust in man, search Elohim and He will give you understanding in the right interpretation of the Torah "not with persuasive words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit…... May יהוה bless you and keep you all.
