In the book of Matthew 1:20 says, But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream. I just wanna stop right here and just speak from these passage of scriptures. The scripture right here was actually talking about Joseph was in a dream, how many of us knows dreams are signs from God depending on what type of dreams we’re in and most do manifest? Thoughts are very powerful therefore our minds are just as powerful because our minds produces these thoughts whenever we think something in our minds they will become actions.
Joseph didn’t even have to say a word about what was going on with him and Mary’s his wife’s condition I imagine he was fearful and confused about what was going on, let me remind you that they’re married and back in those days the people was very strict around there about stoning folks to death because they we’re going directly by the law if a person committed adultery on his or her spouse they were stone dead. Joseph had heard about Mary’s pregnancy and didn’t know what to do all he knew was he loved his wife and didn’t wanted to put her away especially in public , she didn’t tell him anything about her pregnancy because the baby wasn’t his. Joseph and Mary had ever been intimate yet.
So Joseph went to bed pondering all these thoughts in his mind on what to do with his wife’s condition because if he didn’t step forward and own up to Mary’s pregnancy and that he was the father then Mary was in trouble and that would make him look bad so he fall asleep on pondering. Look at God working on our behalf even while we’re sleeping. The all mighty God is all powerful and He will step right in and saved us from eternity damnation and show us an understanding of what He’s doing . It was God’s doing that Mary got pregnant. The Holy Ghost impregnate her.
While Joseph was sleeping in his bed the angel of the Lord came to him and had to explain what was going on with Mary he told Joseph that this is God’s doing it was a need for it ( I’m phrasing ). The people need a Savior this baby that your wife is carrying will save the whole world from there sins his name is Jesus. For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son John 3:16. Wow now this is a hallelujah for me look at God. So Joseph understood what the angel of God was saying to him and welcome Jesus in right then and there through Mary’s pregnancy so now Joseph was the stepfather to baby Jesus and Mary life was spared because she didn’t commit no adultery. Awesome!
Side note: Anytime we do the work of God it’s not a crime or sin to commit it is our ministry from heaven no matter the cost Mary took a vow and stood for God she didn’t care if she would get stoned or not Acts 5:29 says, Then Peter and the other apostles said , We ought to obey God rather then men. We are to do what God say do not what man say. So she wasn’t stoned. But it was a man by the name of Stephen in the Bible though that was stoned to death for doing the ministry of the Lord it was his time to go be with Jesus you will read this in Act 7: 54–60. Therefore no one can stone you or criticize you for something the Lord told you to do unless it’s your time to go and your ministry is up.
God will even come to us in our dreams. If something is on our minds long enough then they will manifest we can think and speak from the thoughts of our minds these are words manifesting in visual plain sight of the natural eyes. Whatever we speak from the spirit will manifest in the natural so it is very important to watch what we say and speak because life and death is in the power of the tongue Proverbs 18:21. even if we have a thought and it’s not a good thought but more against the thoughts of God or they just maybe down hard evil thoughts , then we must and we can cast them down before they come out and form actions to do harm to ourselves or even another person’s life 2 Corinthians 10:5 says, Cast down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
Be mindful for what we do or say remember we have the mind of Christ 1 Corinthians 2:16 Let’s continue to do the works of God’s kingdom ministry and remember to love God first because He is our first love to love other peoples and love ourselves last then we will be walking in JOY.
Make Jesus Christ the Lord of your life today, if you haven’t already peace and blessings to you Amen 🙏❤️
