Behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph,...

Behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins.
(Matthew 1:20-21 KJV)

Observe the difference between the message to Mary, and the message to Joseph. The mother of Jesus hears of His greatness: He was to be called the Son of the Highest, to have the throne of David, to reign over the house of Jacob forever. The reputed father of Jesus hears He is to be a Savior. And did not Joseph know that he needed a Savior? Indeed he did. And furthermore Mary knew it too, for in the first chapter of Luke she says, “My spirit hath rejoiced in God my Savior” (v. 47).
How sweet it is that before the Child was born, God should give Him this name-Jesus- Jehovah the Savior. Blessed news for sinners! Charming name: none other so sweet. Do you not love the name of Jesus? Does not your heart respond as you her that name? It has been the resting-place of myriads of troubled, anxious souls in days gone by, and it can give rest to every such one today. Every other name will perish: the name of the mightiest man that ever appeared in this word will pass away, but the name of Jesus shall endure forever.
“Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet…Behold, a virgin shall be with Child, and shall bring forth a Son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.” Thus we learn two things. The name Jesus, given to this unborn Child, speaks off His being the Savior, and furthermore His birth was the fulfillment of a prophecy, well known to Joseph, that in His Person God was going to visit the earth.

And I saw the beast, and the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against him that sat on the horse, and against his army. And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the...More

Some years ago, I was invited to be the guest speaker at a garden party in an exclusive, highbrow residential area. Because I arrived at the venue quite early, I was made to sit for a while in the house of my host. The house was an exquisite parade of wealth and splendour. I had never seen such brazen display of...More

Be Honest with God

God loveth a cheerful giver.
—2 Corinthians 9:7

The greatest blessing of giving is not on the financial side of the ledger but on the spiritual side. You receive a sense of being honest with God. You receive a consciousness that you are in partnership with God—that you are doing something...More
