Genesis 41:51-52 And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh, for, he said, God has made me forget all my trouble

Genesis 41:51-52 And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh, for, he said, God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father's house. And he called the name of the second Ephraim, for, he said, God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction.

Genesis 41:51-52 And Joseph called the name of the firstborn Manasseh, for, he said, God has made me forget all my trouble and all my father’s house. And he called the name of the second Ephraim, for, he said, God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction. (Recovery Version)

Of his wife, Asenath, Joseph begot two sons, Manasseh and Ephraim. The name Manasseh means “making to forget”…(Genesis 41:51). This indicates that with the birth of Manasseh Joseph forgot all his afflictions. When Manasseh was born, Joseph seemed to say, “Praise the Lord! He has caused me to forget my afflictions.” This reveals that when the church is productive, Christ will declare that He has forgotten His afflictions. The name of Joseph’s second son was Ephraim, which means “twice fruitful” (Genesis 41:52). When Ephraim was born, Joseph said, “God has made me fruitful in the land of my affliction.” With Joseph, instead of affliction, there was fruitfulness. When we preach the gospel and produce fruit, Christ will be happy and declare, “There is no more affliction. But look at all the fruit!” (Witness Lee, Life-study of Genesis, msg. 113)
