And some time later, the Pharaoh’s Chief Cup-Bearer (THE SERVANT WHO OFTEN SWALLOWED SOME OF THE KING’S WINE BEFORE SERVING IT TO GUARD AGAINST HIM BEING POISONED) and the Pharaoh’s Master-Chef both offended him and in his fury, he threw them in the prison where Joseph was and they were in there for quite some time, and the Captain of the Guard assigned Joseph to look after them.
One night the Cup-Bearer and Master-Chef both had dreams and when Joseph saw them the next morning he noticed that they both looked very upset, so he asked them, “Why the long face fellas, what’s up?”
And they replied, “We both had dreams last night that freaked us out and no one can tell us what they mean.”
And Joseph didn’t even flinch, “Just chill guys, my Alahim Yahuah can help you with that . . . tell me your dreams.”
So the Chief Cup-bearer told Joseph his dream first. “In my dream I saw a grapevine in front of me which had three branches that began to bud and blossom, and soon it produced clusters of ripe juicy grapes. I was holding the Pharaoh’s wine cup in my hand, so I took some grapes and squeezed the juice into his cup. Then I placed the cup into the Pharaoh’s hand”.
And with the wisdom of YAHUAH in him, Joseph said, “This is what the dream means. The three branches represent three days. So in three days you’ll be out of here mate, with your job back, as the Pharaoh’s Chief Cup-Bearer. So when you get the chance, would you do me a favor and name-drop me to the Pharaoh, so I can get outta here too? You see I was kidnapped from my home and my family, back in the land of the Hebrews, and now I’m here in this dungeon, but I did nothing to deserve it.”
And when the Master-Chef saw that Joseph had given the first dream such a positive spin, he said to Joseph, “I had a dream too and there were three baskets of amazing white pastries all stacked on my head. And all the pastries in the top basket were for the Pharaoh, but the birds came along and ate everything from the basket on my head.”
And Joseph said “The three baskets also represent three days because in three days the Pharaoh will lift you up and impale your body on a stake. Then the birds will come and peck away at your flesh.”
Three days later it was the Pharaoh’s birthday (PAGAN MAZZAROTH WORSHIP OF THE SUN, MOON & STARS)and he prepared a banquet in his honor for all his officials. And he brought his Chief Cup-Bearer and his Master-Chef to stand before his guests. Then he gave the Chief Cup-Bearer his job back, so he could hand the Pharaoh his cup again. But Pharaoh had the Master-Chef impaled, just as Joseph had predicted when he interpreted his dream. But after this event, the Chief Cup-Bearer went straight back to work and forgot all about Joseph and never said anything to the Pharaoh for two whole years.
So Joseph worked in the prison for two years, then one night the Pharaoh dreamed that he was standing on the bank of the Nile River and he saw seven fat, healthy cows come up out of the river and begin grazing in the swamp grass. Then he saw seven more cows come up behind them from the Nile, but these were sickly, scrawny, thin cows. Then the scrawny, thin cows ate the seven healthy, fat cows!
And at this point in the dream, the Pharaoh woke up in a hot sweat. But falling asleep again, he saw seven heads of grain, plump and beautiful, growing on a single stalk. Then seven more heads of grain appeared, but these were shrivelled up and withered by the east wind. And these thin-heads swallowed up the seven plump, well-formed heads! Then the Pharaoh woke up again and realised it was all a dream.
The next morning he was very disturbed by the dreams, so he called for all the magicians, diviners and wise men of Egypt and when he told them his dreams, none of them could tell him what they meant. So finally, the king’s Chief Cup-Bearer spoke up and said. “I’ve screwed up big time O’ great Pharaoh. A couple of years ago, you imprisoned me in the palace of the Captain of the Guard. And one night your old Master-Chef and I both had dreams, and there was a young Hebrew man with us who interpreted our dreams. And everything happened just as he had predicted for I was restored to my position as your Cup-Bearer, and the Maser-Chef was executed and impaled on a stake......And I completely forgot about him, until today!”
So the Pharaoh sent for Joseph at once, and he was quickly brought from the prison. And after he shaved, changed his clothes and was made to look royally presentable, he went in and stood before the Pharaoh.
Then the Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I had a dream last night, and no one here can tell me what it means, but I’ve heard that you can interpret them.”
And Joseph said, “It is way beyond my power to do this, however my Alahim Yahuah can put your mind at ease no problems.”
So the Pharaoh told Joseph his dreams about the thin cows eating the fat cows and the withered up heads of grains devouring the plump heads, and Joseph responded. “Both of the Pharaoh’s dreams mean the same thing. Yahuah is telling you in advance of what He is about to do. The seven healthy cows and the seven healthy heads of grain both represent seven years of prosperity, while the seven thin, scrawny cows that came up later and the seven thin heads of grain, withered by the east wind, represent seven years of famine. And this will definitely go down as you have seen it because Yahuah is telling you right now what He’s going to do.
The next seven years will be a period of great prosperity throughout the land of Egypt, but afterward there will be seven years of famine and such scarcity of food that all the good years of fat abundance will be nothing but a distant memory, for it will destroy all the land.
Now great Pharaoh you’ve practically had the same dream twice now which means Yahuah my Alahim is telling you this is really going to happen. So you should find an intelligent, wise man and put him in charge of the entire land of Egypt, appointing supervisors over the whole land and get them to collect one-fifth of all the crops during the seven good years and have them gather all the food from those good years and bring it to your storehouses. Store it away, and guard it so there will be food in the cities. Then there will be enough to eat when the seven years of famine come to the land of Egypt. Otherwise this famine will destroy this whole land.”
And the Pharaoh was so relieved by Joseph’s interpretation and suggestions and he rejoiced, saying to his officials, “Have you ever seen anyone else so clearly gifted with intelligence and wisdom around here?”
