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.

After seeing their plight, hearing their cries and feeling their pains, God came down to rescue the Israelites from Egypt. Our God is a mobile God. He comes down to deliver His own. As high as God is and even though He has His throne in Heaven, yet He condescends to meet the needs of His children on earth (Isaiah...More

Jesus Christ was at Bethany in the house of Simon the leper. As he sat down to eat, a woman came with a costly perfumed ointment and poured it on his head. Some hypocrites saw it as a waste of resources because they felt the ointment could have been sold for a great deal of money which could have been given to the...More

It is rather unfortunate that many who started their Christian journey on the foundation of apostolic faith and teachings have abandoned the faith and are now living in error. There are many who have even become heretical in the name of “Pentecostalism”. It is not everything you hear from the pulpit of the 21st...More
