The Priests of Egypt

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Hi K____,

Thank you for pointing these things out to me. You are right on target about the priests and their land. These priests were as pagan as was Pharaoh, but in type they represent those whose land and food are given them of Pharaoh, who in type represents the Father.

Gen 47:22 Only the land of the priests bought he not; for the priests had a portion assigned them of Pharaoh, and did eat their portion which Pharaoh gave them: wherefore they sold not their lands.

The fact that the “priests… sold not their land” but were priests while Joseph ruled Egypt, tells us that these are in type, “kings and priests” with Christ while he rules.

These priests typify the same thing Benjamin typifies. They are given their meat of Pharaoh just as Benjamin is fed more and clothed more and given more silver than his brothers.

I had never even considered the spiritual significance of Adam naming all the beasts. But again, you must be right on, since the beasts and the fowl both represent spiritual wickedness against which we do battle:

Eph 6:12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places].

Again, thank you for sharing with me what the Lord shares with you. Believe me, if I did not see what you see, I would let you know. I know you would do the same for me.
