You have made the direct and valid point
that the elect and chosen of God were always hated by the world and mocked and mistreated and harmed by those whom are supposed to "embrace them "
they are the ones sent to Blast the warnings and save the DAY !! the ones we are told to listen to , in order to keep from the impending judgment to come
Every prophet sent was LIKE JESUS CHRIST in His generation sent by the HOLY SPIRIT witness and the WORD of GOD to repent
Now we have Jesus Christ in those whom are to come in His name , they also will be scourged and mocked and made fun of and mistreated
no Different than Jesus was and KILLED by the message sent , Come in to the fold or receive the judgments
and they ALL will reap what they sow
The same suffering they gave , they also will receive , till they realize what they have done !!
their eyes will see what they have done on whom they pierced
what did those brothers do when they realized what they done to Joseph ?
I agree with you its all about FORGIVENESS and making those humbled and ashamed for what they have done !!!
Genesis 5015 And when Joseph's brethren saw that their father was dead, they said, It may be that Joseph will hate us, and will fully requite us all the evil which we did unto him.
16 And they sent a message unto Joseph, saying, Thy father did command before he died, saying,
17 So shall ye say unto Joseph, Forgive, I pray thee now, the transgression of thy brethren, and their sin, for that they did unto thee evil. And now, we pray thee, forgive the transgression of the servants of the God of thy father. And Joseph wept when they spake unto him.
18 And his brethren also went and fell down before his face; and they said, Behold, we are thy servants.
19 And Joseph said unto them, Fear not: for am I in the place of God?
20 And as for you, ye meant evil against me; but God meant it for good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.
21 Now therefore fear ye not: I will nourish you, and your little ones. And he comforted them, and spake kindly unto them.
22 And Joseph dwelt in Egypt, he, and his father's house: and Joseph lived a hundred and ten years.
Jesus on the Cross was said FORGIVE THEM FATHER for they know not what they do !!
This is how the Lamb of God takes away the sin of the world !
every eye shall see Him and mourn in humility and even be ashamed for the sin of their nakedness !! Rev 1 ;17
6and He has made us to be a kingdom, priests to His God and Father-- to Him be the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
7 BEHOLD, HE IS COMING WITH THE CLOUDS, and every eye will see Him, even those who pierced Him;
and all the tribes of the earth will mourn over Him. So it is to be. Amen.
8"I am the Alpha and the Omega," says the Lord God, "who is and who was and who is to come, the Almighty."
