Have you wondered what possibly was the greatest sales pitch in history? many sales pitches happen around the world, people trying to sell things, companies advancing their products, politicians trying to get votes.
If we look at the Bible I believe the greatest pitch was from Joseph. He had one break with the greatest person living at the time, the Pharaoh of Egypt and he had less than 10 mins to make the greatest sales pitch to save his life and an entire nation.
It was one of the shortest and most successful pitches of all time. From dungeon to palace, from prisoner to ruler in 10 mins with 13 sentences (or 301 words)
Genesis chapter 41
Guarantee and assurance
It is not in me: God shall give Pharaoh an answer of peace.
The dream of Pharaoh is one: God hath shewed Pharaoh what he is about to do.
The seven good kine are seven years; and the seven good ears are seven years: the dream is one.
And the seven thin and ill favoured kine that came up after them are seven years; and the seven empty ears blasted with the east wind shall be seven years of famine.
This is the thing which I have spoken unto Pharaoh: What God is about to do he sheweth unto Pharaoh.
Behold, there come seven years of great plenty throughout all the land of Egypt:
And there shall arise after them seven years of famine; and all the plenty shall be forgotten in the land of Egypt; and the famine shall consume the land;
And the plenty shall not be known in the land by reason of that famine following; for it shall be very grievous.
And for that the dream was doubled unto Pharaoh twice; it is because the thing is established by God, and God will shortly bring it to pass.
Solution and strategy
Now therefore let Pharaoh look out a man discreet and wise, and set him over the land of Egypt.
Let Pharaoh do this, and let him appoint officers over the land, and take up the fifth part of the land of Egypt in the seven plenteous years.
And let them gather all the food of those good years that come, and lay up corn under the hand of Pharaoh, and let them keep food in the cities.
And that food shall be for store to the land against the seven years of famine, which shall be in the land of Egypt; that the land perish not through the famine.
5 to 10 mins pitch
We can prepare for an eternity for everything and work hard and trying to convince others to get ahead in life. But when God provides a break the impossible can be simply possible
