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.

APPLY THE KEY

Every blessing worth its salt requires a key without which the seeker cannot access it. While some people have never experienced open doors, others once did, but the doors hitherto opened to them have been shut. In 1 Samuel 16:14, the door which was once opened to Saul was shut. That good door which opened to...More
