Joseph lived before Christ and even Moses. Jacob was his father. Joseph foreshadowed the coming Messiah more than a thousand years before Him.
Joseph and Jesus, Both

WHAT WOULD PEOPLE FROM 1968 THINK NOW? It's hard to believe that 54 years ago (1968) a major NBC television show and hosts were calling out U.S. Congress for doing nothing about gun control. In the 1960s the U.S. averaged one mass shooting a year People were outraged. What would they think now? In 2022, there were 300 mass shootings in the U.S. in the first six months of the year.

HOW MANY ARE USING TRIPLE G CONNECTIVITY? Amazing to think that in 100 years we have gone from horse-and-buggy to worldwide cell phone communications. What's even more amazing is that God, in Christ, has by His Cross reconciled us to Himself. Christ has restored our communication connection broken by Adam and Eve. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit have gifted us a Triple G network to speak with God. Jesus paid the price for the connection. How many know it's free? How many are daily dialing? How many wish they did?
"TAKE IT OR LEAVE IT" & "THAT'S THE SIXTY-FOUR DOLLAR QUESTION!"
A question that is very important and difficult or complex to answer: The 1940s radio program "Take It or Leave It." The big prize was 64 silver dollars. In modern vernacular we now say, "That's the sixty-four-dollar question!"

OUR BLESSED HOPE - CHRIST CAN GIVE ANYONE NEW HEART: Strange thing about our times, hypocrisy, everywhere. Hypocrisy, the only sin the Lord calls out and condemns in the Gospels. "Woe to you hypocrites!" Said seven times in one discourse. Interestingly, Jesus never condemned the prostitute and he never stormed a gay bar in Jerusalem. People that have been outspoken about pro life have been doing zero since the 1960s to regulate automatic weapons and mass murders. Hypocrites! On the other hand, there are pro choice people that condemn mass murders and automatic weapons, yet support the killing of innocent children. Hypocrites! When people's hearts are driven by self-righteous hypocrisy, there are no laws that can regulate the heart of man. The core is evil and will always be evil because of Original Sin. Yet, the prophet Ezekiel foretold a day when, "I will give them a new heart, a heart of flesh and take away their stony hearts. I will write my laws upon their hearts. I will be their God. They will be my people."

New assault rifle now being sold to U.S. civilians is twice as powerful as the AR-15 and shoots through bulletproof vests . . .
SIG Sauer GmbH, a firearms company from Germany and based in Newington, New Hampshire in the United States now markets and sells an assault rifle that can shoot through bulletproof vests.
The SIG Sauer's MCX-SPEAR can fire bullets with twice the speed and energy of an AR-15; the semiautomatic weapon used in a string of recent mass shootings. The gun is commercially available in the United States.
The SIG Sauer's MCX-SPEAR is the mass shooting equivalent of the US Army's NGSW-R (Next Generation Squad Weapon-Rifle), specifically created to tear through body armor. It will shoot through almost all of the bulletproof vests worn by law enforcement in the county right now.
The gun also has a longer range than the AR-15 and equipped with a noise suppressor that make mass shooters harder to locate.
"The MCX-SPEAR was specifically developed to provide shooters with more power, distance, and accuracy to replace the current M4 rifle platform," said the SIG Sauer Firearms Company website.
The AR-15s are lighter, convenient and more maneuverable for shooters than MCX-SPEARs. However, the bullets from the latter can hit much harder over greater distances. The gun can help mass shooters become "a long-range sniper with an AR-15-style gun."
SIG Sauer is also the company responsible for making the semi-automatic AR-15-style rifle that was used in the Orlando nightclub shooting in 2016 that left 49 people dead.
SIG Sauer said that the MCX-SPEAR is now available at "select dealers." In the company’s press release, Ron Cohen, President & CEO, SIG SAUER, Inc, said it was "a rare opportunity for passionate consumers [shooters] to own a piece of history."
One SIG Sauer dealer said that the arms manufacturer sent out 2,500 and then another 5,000 of the weapons and they sold out quickly, despite the manufacturer's suggested price tag of $7,999.
A customer service representative for SIG Sauer told the dealers that more weapons would soon be shipped to gun stores at a lower price than these "first editions" models. "I know it's coming," the representative told the dealers. "We're trying to get these things out as fast as we can. Get as many guns as we can out the door."
High-powered AR-15-style weapons used in recent mass shootings, including Buffalo, Uvalde, and Highland Park that left 38 dead, were all legally purchased in the US.
The Highland gunman fired off more than 70 rounds from the rooftop onto the crowds of innocent parade-goers below during the rampage in the Chicago suburb.
House Democrats and Republicans have done nothing to this very day to ban semiautomatic weapons in response to a spate of mass shootings using such weapons that have devastated 1,000s of lives that began in the 1980s and 1990s and continue to this very day.
