Then the Pharaoh said to Joseph, “Since your Alahim has revealed the meaning of these dreams to you, there is clearly no one else as intelligent or wise as you. So you will be in charge of my court, and all my people will bow down and take orders from you. And the only one higher than you in this land will be me for I officially put you in charge of the entire land of Egypt.”
Then the Pharaoh removed his royal seal-ring from his hand and placed it on Joseph’s finger, dressed him in fine linen clothing, hung a gold chain around his neck, and had him ride in the chariot reserved only for his second-in-command. And wherever Joseph went, the command was shouted, “Kneel down!”
Yes, the Pharaoh put a young hebrew slave, a man broken and sticking to his belief (in the only living Alahim), in charge of the entire nation of Egypt, saying to him, “I am the Pharaoh, and no one will lift a hand or foot in the entire land of Egypt without your approval. And Joseph, your title will now be Zaphnath-Paneah (‘lifesaver of the world’ in Egyptian)”.
He also gave Joseph a wife, whose name was Asenath. She was the daughter of Poti-Fera, the priest of the temple at On (dedicated to the worship of their national sun-deity `Ra’).
POTI-FERA AND HIS DAUGHTER WERE NOT EGYPTIANS (FROM THE CURSED BLOODLINE OF HAM), BUT FROM THE SHEMITES (DESCENDANTS OF SHEM) WHO WERE CURRENTLY RULING EGYPT, WHICH IS WHY YAHUAH ALLOWED THIS UNION.
So Joseph took charge of the entire land of Egypt and he was thirty years old when he stood in the court of the Pharaoh, the king of Egypt. And when Joseph left the Pharaoh’s Court, he set out and inspected the entire land of Egypt.
And as predicted, the land produced uber-massive crops for seven years and during those years, Joseph had all the workers gather all the crops grown in Egypt and store all the grain from the surrounding fields in the cities, piling up huge amounts of grain like sand on the seashore. And eventually he stopped keeping records because there was way too much to measure.
And during this time (before the famine years) two sons were born to Joseph and his wife Asenath and Joseph named their older son MENASHAH(meaning ‘to forget’) for he said, “Yahuah has made me forget all about my torturous hardships and about everyone in my father’s house.”
And Joseph named his second son EPHRAIM(meaning ‘fruitful’) for he said, “Yahuah has made me fruitful in this land of my torture and grief.”
And finally the seven years of wealth and prosperity in the land of Egypt came to an end and the seven years of famine began, just as Joseph said it would. The famine also struck all the surrounding countries, but throughout Egypt there was plenty of food. But eventually, even the land of Egypt was hit with the scarcity of food.
And when the people cried out to the Pharaoh for food, (he really didn’t care much for the Egyptian people he’d conquered) he told them . . . “Go and see Joseph, and do whatever he says.”
So with severe famine everywhere, Joseph opened up the storehouses and gave out grain to the Egyptians, for the famine was severe throughout all the world and finally people came from far and wide, to Egypt to buy grain from Joseph.
