But double portion to bless Joseph|| 15 Seconds Wisdom

After the testing faced from GOD through various trials and tribulations from his brothers and master, Joseph was found blameless. The blessing of Jacob was in Joseph and his two sons-Manasseh and Ephraim due to his faithfulness in hardship. Ezekiel 47:13 says about double portion for Joseph. Revelations 7:5-6 gives account of 12000 each of Joseph and his two sons Manasseh and Ephraim receiving GOD’s seal which is 36,000 compared to other tribes. Jacob gave Joseph one more ridge of land than to his brothers in Genesis 48:22. Later in Exodus 13:19 Moses carried bones of buried Joseph and Israelites buried the bones in land given to him by Jacob in Joshua 24:32. Genesis 49:22-26 shows Joseph received blessing of his father Jacob along with prophecy but others received only prophecies. Joseph-a prince among his brothers was doubly blessed because he had greater faith knowing GOD’s purpose amidst every test and trails.
