Joseph’s master took him and gave him over to the prison, the place where the prisoners of the king were kept under arrest.—Gen. 39:20.

The Bible indicates that for a time Joseph’s feet were bound in fetters and his neck was put in irons. (Ps. 105:17, 18) Joseph’s situation was going from bad to worse. He went from being a trusted slave to being a lowly prisoner. Have you ever been in a distressing situation that went from bad to worse despite your earnest prayers? That can happen. Jehovah does not shield us from trials in a world that is ruled by Satan. (1 John 5:19) Still, you can be sure of this: Jehovah is fully aware of what you are going through, and he cares about you. (Matt. 10:29-31; 1 Pet. 5:6, 7) Furthermore, he has promised: “I will never leave you, and I will never abandon you.” (Heb. 13:5) Jehovah can help you to endure even when your situation seems hopeless. w23.01 16 ¶7-8
If God is involved, small, seemingly obscure events can have an enormous impact and even change the course of history. That was certainly the case with Joseph. Jehovah had chosen Abraham, Jospeh's great grandfather. He also revealed himself to Issac and his son, Jacob, whose name God changed to Israel. Jacob had 12 sons. They were obscure shepherds until God intervened. Because of a series of dreams that God gave Joseph, his older brothers became enraged and sold him to a traveling caravan. Joseph was bought by a wealthy Egyptian and became a trusted house servant, at least until his master's wife tried to seduce him. Because he rejected her advances, Joseph wound up in prison. After languishing in prison for a few years, Jehovah intervened again with a series of dreams that Joseph interpreted. Pharoah's dreams were so profound and disturbed him so greatly that he knew that Joseph's interpretation was true. And so he elevated Joesph from prison to become the prime minister. And just like that, God took a lowly shepherd, a convicted prisoner, and put him in charge of the greatest nation on earth at the time.

Initially, Jacob's clan thrived in Egypt, but eventually, they were enslaved. And that set the stage for divine intervention on a scale that is hard to even imagine even though we have a record of it. Jehovah took on the gods of Egypt and eviscerated them one by one, Pharoah being the last, whom Jehovah lured into the watery trap at the Red Sea. Some 40 years later, as the liberated Israelites entered the Promised Land, Rahab, a Canaanite woman, told the two Hebrew spies that they had heard what Jehovah had done to Egypt four decades before.

It has been a long time since God has done anything so dramatic. But that is about to change. We should not suppose that the coming of the Son of man will be so uneventful as the Watchtower's 1914 doctrine has made it out to be.

All humans are insignificant compared to God. To give us an idea of our littleness, God likens mankind to grasshoppers. It is an extraordinary act of humility and grace on God's part to even have any dealings with imperfect humans. But in his greatness, Jehovah has delighted to elevate some humans to his own level and bestow upon them all authority, the same glory and power as Jesus Christ. God has purposed to give the Kingdom to his chosen ones even while they are in the flesh. This is what is to occur during Christ's visible parousia. But, to set the stage for this, all those called into his Kingdom must first be stripped of everything and crushed like Joseph was. And not coincidentally, God duplicated Joseph's experience with Daniel and Esther. Both were lowly slaves in Babylon and Persia and Jehovah exalted them to the throne. Daniel was deputy ruler in both Babylon and Persia, and Esther became queen of the vast Persian realm and saved her people from genocide. Certainly God has provided prophetic dramas of what is to come during the last days.

I believe the last days are about to begin, and the world will be plunged into war and chaos. Here in the United States there have been reports that the government has contracts out in all 50 states for detention camps to be constructed. Ostensibly, the camps are intended for illegal aliens and, no doubt, patriots who will inevitably try to save their nation from the tyrants who have seized control. But, ultimately, I have no doubt the camps are intended for us. But it has to be that way to set the stage for Christ's entry into the world.

As most of you know, I have identified Egypt in prophecy as foreshadowing the greatest nation now, the United States. The 19th chapter of Isaiah foretells the crash of Egypt when Jehovah came riding into the land on a swift cloud. And yes, civil war, "Egyptians against Egyptians." It does not take a great deal of imagination to envision civil war in America. As regards Jehovah's entry into our affairs, verses 19-20 say: "In that day there will be an altar to Jehovah in the middle of the land of Egypt and a pillar to Jehovah at its boundary. It will be for a sign and for a witness to Jehovah of armies in the land of Egypt; for they will cry out to Jehovah because of the oppressors, and he will send them a savior, a grand one, who will save them."

God punished the Jews for their seeking a political alliance with Egypt. He certainly did not send a savior to Egypt—just the opposite. The prophecy is really speaking of Christ. He is the grand savior whom Jehovah will send into modern Egypt, and indeed the world. But Jehovah's earthly organization originated in America and it is headquartered there still. Detractors have even called Jehovah's Witnesses an American sect. There is a good reason for that. America has been a melting pot where people from all over the world have immigrated or whose ancestors were slaves like Joseph was. It is time for Jehovah's Christ to come riding on a swift cloud into Egypt.

A pronouncement against Egypt:
Look! Jehovah is riding on a swift cloud and is coming into Egypt.
The worthless gods of Egypt will tremble before him,
And the heart of Egypt will melt within it.
“I will incite Egyptians against Egyptians,
And they will fight one another,
Each against his brother and his neighbor,
City against city, kingdom against kingdom.
And the spirit of Egypt will become bewildered within it,
And I will confuse its plans.
They will resort to the worthless gods,
To the charmers and to the spirit mediums and to the fortune-tellers.
I will hand Egypt over to a hard master,
And a harsh king will rule over them,” declares the true Lord, Jehovah of armies.

Many things that we cannot even imagine are in the future for us. When thinking of Joseph, can’t you just imagine how he was probably slandered by his own family? No doubt they said what a arrogant trouble maker he was and they were glad to get rid of him. And, then he was falsely accused of a sex crime. What could be worse? But when the “worm turns” so to speak and at Jehovah’s direction, what a turn about it will be. Joseph’s conduct on how to handle not only his trials but the turn around is really inspiring.

I've been thinking along these same lines, especially with regards to the potential for civil unrest in America. It wont take much to throw this country into conflict. It seems like every protest turns into rioting of some sort. I don't see it ending peacefully whether or not there's another election or whatever the outcome is if there is.
 
I was traveling through Texas in 2011 on I-10 hauling my 5th wheel rv in the Brazos country going to Florida from Arizona, anyway, there's a stretch of about 170 miles between gas stations even a sign that says check your fuel .. which I missed the sign and was running low on fuel a bit more than half way between filling stations..so I turned down a road that looked like it may have fuel...As I drove I seen a giant wind turbine..bigger than any other, which to my surprise there were no power line poles.. what seemed like a mile or so turned into 10 miles or more to a what looked like a giant prison on more than 2000 acres.. I was swarmed by blacked out suvs, which pulled me over and asked what I was doing on the road.which I told them.. they were in full assault uniforms armed to the teeth..they had me turn around and escorted me back the hwy where I was met by a state police vehicle who was there with a 5 gallon gas can..that he poured in my tank.. He said keep going east ..which to my surprise w, .how did he know I was going east?
Here's what I saw..

You brought back an old memory. I have driven that I-10 stretch across Texas a few times. Once, about 40 years ago, I was driving by myself in a pickup, pulling a trailer on New Year's Eve. I intended to fill up the gas tank, but a few places I stopped at were closed because of the holiday. The tank was getting pretty low—last chance, I exited the freeway and this little rundown gas station was closed. It was about 2 am but I figured that staying there until they opened in the morning was better than being stranded on the side of the road. It was cold, and I couldn't keep the engine running, but there was this little oil well out in this field flaring. So, I stumbled through the brush and stood next to the flame until the sun came up. By the time the gas station opened, there were a few other cars waiting. Anyway, nice sunrise I recall.

That's funny..I've actually done that before with some friends back in the 70s on Signal Hill in long Beach California to stay warm..good memories
