I will now pick back up with more of this message: (part two)
[THE BIRTH OF GRACE]
16 When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said unto Joseph, I also was in my dream, and, behold, I had three white baskets on my head: 17 and in the uppermost basket there was of all manner of bakemeats for Pharaoh; and the birds did eat them out of the basket upon my head. 18 And Joseph answered and said, This is the interpretation thereof: The three baskets are three days: 19 yet within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh from off thee.
20 And it came to pass the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast unto all his servants: and he lifted up the head of the chief butler and of the chief baker among his servants. 21 And he restored the chief butler unto his butlership again; and he gave the cup into Pharaoh’s hand: 22 but he hanged the chief baker: as Joseph had interpreted to them. 23 Yet did not the chief butler remember Joseph, but forgat him.
Let’s go back to verse14: Joseph told the butler, think on me when it shall be well with thee and show kindness, and make mention of me to Pharaoh and BRING ME OUT OF This house = dungeon or prison.
Remember that Abigail had said this to David, when she stopped him from going to avenge himself of her wicked husband. She said when you are king, or it is well with thee, remember me. Later, after her husband died, David took her for a wife.
This is also showing that the thief on the cross recognized that Jesus would someday be king, and said, remember me when you come into your kingdom. That is what this is about. Watch it unfold as the other dream is interpreted.
There is a lot of background truth which needs to be brought in here, in order for the depth of this to be made clear. But I truly do not know how to show this to anyone who is unfamiliar with the deep truths which God has given to me in the last few years. One needs to know that Genesis one is NOT about the creation of the universe. It is totally about Jesus and his kingdom.
That is also what these two dreams are about. We know that Jesus was born, naturally, under the LAW SYSTEM. That is ONE DAY with the Lord. = LAW.
We also know that Jesus nailed that LAW to his cross, taking it out of the way. This then brought in a NEW DAY; A NEW HEAVEN AND NEW EARTH = GRACE. That is another DAY WITH THE LORD = GRACE.
In Genesis one, day three is about this new day of GRACE being born. In this DAY OF GRACE, this FRUIT TREE of the vine of Jesus’ kingdom, began bearing its fruit, or true children of God. There were no children, or sons of God, under the old LAW system.
This is the budding and blossoming of that tree of life, Eve, the Holy Mother of all LIVING. She brought forth her first pure SEED CHILD, the day Jesus rose from the grave. This TREE then began bearing other SEED CHILDREN like unto Jesus. This began on the DAY of pentecost. (another DAY with God, see?)
This Holy Seed was in this tree, called Jesus, because God had given this seed of life to him. As the Father has LIFE in himself, so has He given to ME TO HAVE LIFE IN MYSELF. So, this tree has the seed of life in itself. This tree then brought forth more trees with this seed of life in itself. It became a full kingdom, of which Jesus is the HEAD.
On the third DAY, Pharaoh lifted up the HEAD and set Jesus on the throne of God. He is the HEAD of this body or kingdom. Jesus was brought out of that prison or grave, on this THIRD DAY, OR THE BEGINNING OF GRACE. Praise my God. The real prison was that old LAW.
Noah’s ark had three levels or stories. They stayed in that UPPER story. The chief baker saw THREE WHITE baskets on his head. White in scripture shows righteousness. The disciples were in an UPPER room, when they received the Holy Ghost and were thus filled with RIGHTEOUSNESS.
Watch how all of ties together, in this man’s dream.
Remember that the sheet with all manner of animals was let down to Peter three times and he was told to rise, kill and eat.
At first, Peter did not wish to do such a thing, for he saw it as carnal, or natural. But after he understood its true meaning, he saw that Jesus had now cleansed this entire world, we are all one, and we must all be one kingdom; not divided anymore. No Jews or Gentiles; No male or female; no bond or free; but all EQUAL in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Abraham is the ‘father’ of the righteous. With Abraham began a new age or day with God. This was a day of innocence. Then Moses came along and gave the LAW. This was day two.
Then Jesus nailed that law to the cross, took it out of the way, and gave us GRACE. This is day three.
Now I know there is more to this, but for now that is all I am dealing with.
Now to the baker’s dream: v16..I had three white baskets on my head.
Three brought it to the day of grace. White brought it to righteousness. on his head, shows it was on the head of the body, Jesus Christ.
In that UPPERMOST basket, (or that upper room), was all manner of bake meats for Pharaoh. This is the glorious message of grace brought to us by Jesus and his apostles. It began in that upper room. At the time of these baskets, the BIRDS did EAT these meats, or FLESH out of the basket on my head. It is saying that the true children of God, saw what Jesus had done for us, and came and ATE the glorious message he had given to us = his flesh, or spiritual FOOD.
We are referred to as birds; eagles and such in Scripture. Jesus himself is called a ravenous bird from the east. Jesus had said, except you EAT my FLESH, you have no life in you. So in this uppermost basket was this food of life.
In order for one thing to be born, seems another must die. flesh must die so spirit can live. OT Law system must die so Grace can live. Romans 7, we must be dead to law, in order to be married to Christ or Grace.
So all of this is fully established with written scripture = a sure interpretation.
Joseph said, the three baskets are THREE DAYS. Within three days shall Pharaoh lift up thy head from off thee, and shall hang thee on a tree; and the birds shall eat thy flesh from off thee.
He is speaking to The OT law system. In many scriptures, this law system is spoken of as a living being. It speaks to God and God speaks back to it. That is what this baker is showing. You must hang on that cross with Jesus and DIE. Then the ‘birds’ can come and eat that holy flesh of Jesus’ message of Grace.
v20.. It came to pass the THIRD DAY, was Pharaoh’s birthday, and he made a feast unto all his servants.
This is speaking of the birth of EMMANUEL, NOT THE BABY JESUS. It is speaking of the birthday of GRACE. This was the day God raised Jesus from the dead and restored him to his headship. Then his little ones could come and eat that FEAST he had made for us. Come and DINE.
Eat that holy FLESH to have eternal life. Jesus has made a feast for his servants. It is in that uppermost basket on his head.
Pharaoh lifted up the heads of both these men on that day. He RESTORED the butler to his former position and again this man ministered to God and the people.
He hung that old law system, or natural man, and brought in the Christ, in the image of God. These dreams came to pass exactly as Joseph had interpreted to both of them. Yet in spite of this, when the butler was restored, he forgot about Joseph and did not mention him to Pharaoh at that time. (you have forgotten your first love; there shall be a great falling away; but he will restore all things).
End of part two.
