Joseph’s Vision and Becoming True

Genesis 37:5-7 NLT

One night Joseph had a dream, and when he told his brothers about it, they hated him more than ever. (6) “Listen to this dream,” he said. (7) “We were out in the field, tying up bundles of grain. Suddenly my bundle stood up, and your bundles all gathered around and bowed low before mine!”

 

Genesis 41:41-43 NLT

Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I hereby put you in charge of the entire land of Egypt.” (42) Then Pharaoh removed his signet ring from his hand and placed it on Joseph’s finger. He dressed him in fine linen clothing and hung a gold chain around his neck. (43) Then he had Joseph ride in the chariot reserved for his second-in-command. And wherever Joseph went, the command was shouted, “Kneel down!” So Pharaoh put Joseph in charge of all Egypt.
