Kairos times bring new leadership as well as new gifts. Joseph’s “Kairos time” brought about a change of leadership in Egypt.
Daniel 2:21 NKJV
“And He changes the times and the seasons; He removes kings and raises up kings; He gives wisdom to the wise
And knowledge to those who have understanding.”
Joseph’s new gift was directly connected to his coming promotion.
After Joseph had interpreted the butler’s dream, the baker also brought his dream.
Genesis 40:16-17 NKJV
“When the chief baker saw that the interpretation was good, he said to Joseph, “I also was in my dream, and there were three white baskets on my head. In the uppermost basket were all kinds of baked goods for Pharaoh, and the birds ate them out of the basket on my head.”
The baker had hope for a favourable interpretation because the butler had received a good interpretation. Unfortunately for him, he had dreamt a bad dream and no interpreter could change his dream. Joseph told him the truth.
Genesis 40:18-19 NKJV
“So Joseph answered and said, “This is the interpretation of it: The three baskets are three days. Within three days Pharaoh will lift off your head from you and hang you on a tree; and the birds will eat your flesh from you.”
Pharaoh’s birthday was in three days.
Genesis 40:20a NKJV
“Now it came to pass on the third day, which was Pharaoh’s birthday, that he made a feast for all his servants;”
Pharaoh fulfilled Joseph’s predictions.
Genesis 40:21-22 NKJV
“Then he restored the chief butler to his butlership again, and he placed the cup in Pharaoh’s hand. But he hanged the chief baker, as Joseph had interpreted to them.”
May your gift make room for your promotion. May the testimony of your new gifts be spread abroad, in Jesus’s name.
