Welcome to Grace Community Church we will be looking at Genesis 42:21-28 today-there is a requirement for mercy.
If you went to a typical church in America today, you’d think you were listening to motivational speakers. The Gospel has been distorted because certain aspects of its content have been completely removed. God’s mercy has been misrepresented. Because there has been an emphasis on making people feel good by tingling their ears with a corrupted Gospel, the wrath of God is rarely preached about. In today’s sermon, Reverend Julio Orozco Jr. will show us how Joseph did more than just give his brothers a pass; he demonstrated how God’s mercy worked in conjunction with true repentance.
There may be some echo in the first two minutes of the video, but it improves.
PS: I’d like to invite you to like, share, and comment on the sermon on YouTube because it helps to spread it to people all over the world. This is excellent preaching, which the entire world needs to hear. Every Sunday, our pastor has faithfully brought the word to us, and it is only fitting that we do our part and share it with others.
The Service 11.14.2021: Genesis 42:21-28 ( There is a requirement for mercy)
21 Then they said to one another, “In truth we are guilty concerning our brother, in that we saw the distress of his soul, when he begged us and we did not listen. That is why this distress has come upon us.” 22 And Reuben answered them, “Did I not tell you not to sin against the boy? But you did not listen. So now there comes a reckoning for his blood.” 23 They did not know that Joseph understood them, for there was an interpreter between them. 24 Then he turned away from them and wept. And he returned to them and spoke to them. And he took Simeon from them and bound him before their eyes. 25 And Joseph gave orders to fill their bags with grain, and to replace every man’s money in his sack, and to give them provisions for the journey. This was done for them.
26 Then they loaded their donkeys with their grain and departed. 27 And as one of them opened his sack to give his donkey fodder at the lodging place, he saw his money in the mouth of his sack. 28 He said to his brothers, “My money has been put back; here it is in the mouth of my sack!” At this their hearts failed them, and they turned trembling to one another, saying, “What is this that God has done to us?”
