Joseph's Coat of Many Colors
Yahuwceph (Joseph) was a prophetic “type” of our Messiah Yahuwshuwa, and his coat given to him by his Father Ya’aqob (Jacob) is symbolic of the Heavenly Father giving our Messiah“the nations for an inheritance” (Psalms 2:8).
The coat of many colors symbolizes the various colors of the flags of the nations and it represents the skin colors of the people of these nations.
It also symbolizes “covenant” because in Genesis 9:13, YaHuWaH set the rainbow in the sky as a sign to Noah and the inhabitants of the earth, of his “seven covenants” which are all“everlasting covenants.”
There are seven colors in a rainbow: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.
Each Millennium from Creation represents one of these colors for each Millennium.
The rainbow will be completed when our Messiah returns and fulfills the Sabbath Millennium for 1,000 years, taking us to the 7th color in the rainbow!
This is when the “Everlasting Covenant” will commence in the 8th Millennium. This “Everlasting Covenant” is a term used to describe all of these other seven covenants. Let’s see what they are:
1.) The Adamic Covenant: Genesis 3:15
2.) The Noahide Covenant: Genesis 6:18- 9:9-17
3.) The Abrahamic Covenant: Genesis 15:18-17:21
4.) The Mosaic Covenant: Exodus 2:24- Joshua 23:16
5.) The Davidic Covenant: 1st Chronicles 17:1-Jeremiah 33:21
6.) Messiah’s Renewed Covenant: Jeremiah 31:31, Hebrews 8:8 & 12:24
7.) The Everlasting Covenant: Genesis 9:16, Genesis 17:7,13,19; Leviticus 24:8, Numbers 25:13, 2nd Samuel 23:5, 1st Chronicles 16:17, Psalms 105:10, Isaiah 24:5, 55:3, 61:8, Jeremiah 32:40, Ezekiel 16:60, 37:26, Hebrews 13:20.
Because there are “seven colors” in a rainbow, YaHuWaH was showing us that all seven of his covenants are really one and the same covenant! Our Creator never breaks nor does he negate any of his covenants.
Also, at one time all nations of the earth were connected as one continent. But in Genesis 10:32 YaHuWaH divided the nations of the earth:
Bereshiyth (Genesis) 10:
25 And unto Eber were born two sons: the name of one was Peleg; for in his days was the earth divided; and his brother’s name was Joktan.
32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, after their generations, in their nations: and by these were the nations divided in the earth after the flood.
After YaHuWaH divided the nations of the earth, how many continents did he divide the earth into? SEVEN CONTINENTS FOR SEVEN COVENANTS!
That is what the rainbow symbolizes and that is what Yahuwceph’s coat of many colors represents! Joseph’s coat symbolizes all of the nations of the earth coming into covenant with our Creator in the last days! Interestingly, Yahuwceph (Joseph)’s very name means “YaHuWaH will increase” but his son’s name Ephrayim means “double fruit.” You see Yahuwceph (Joseph) will become doubly fruitful through his son Ephrayim who was prophesied over by his grandfather Yisra’el (Jacob) that he would become “a multitude of nations.” Ya’aqob (Jacob) whose name was changed to Yisra’el prophesied over his grandson Ephrayim:
Bereshiyth (Genesis) 48:19 “…..and his seed shall become a multitude of nations.”
Yisra’el is a Multitude of Nations!
