Genesis Chapter 40

Chapter Theme: Joseph keeps being faithful to God despite being ____________ on earth.

You number my wanderings; Put my tears into Your bottle; Are they not in Your book?                           -Psalm 56:8              See Also Malachi 3:16-18

The Butler and the Baker had no idea how _________________ they were to have Joseph the man of God as their Junior Warden!

Joseph found a way to bring any ____________________ back around to God!

Verses 9-13 contain the Butler’s dream and interpretation.

Joseph trusted God, but he wasn’t afraid to ______________ that country’s legal system!

Verses 16-19 contain the Baker’s dream and interpretation.

Verse 23 is so sad – the Chief Butler did not __________________ Joseph.

Let’s talk about the Bible and dreams.

The Old Testament joins the New Testament in making clear that dreams must be ______________________ to God’s revealed will (What His Word says).

Good guys in the Bible who had dreams; Other Guys in the Bible who had dreams:

What’s noteworthy about dreams in the New Testament is there are so very _______________; with only one in the epistles and that in a negative context – Jude speaks of “these filthy dreamers.”

Conclusion: Dreams can and do happen, but should not be emphasized – Scripture should be emphasized, and dreams should be ______________in light of scripture. Beware ministries making much of “God told me such and such in a dream or vision.”

Hebrews 1:1-3

Another emphasis from the Reformation: Norma Normans Non Normata – The Bible is the Norm of norms that can’t be normed! God’s Word _______________ us, not vice versa!
