So, this angel show up and tells Joe that his fiancé is pregnant and he should just go along with it. The angel tells him not to be afraid but your wife conceived a child through the power of the Holy Spirit to fulfill a prophecy from the time of Isaiah. So now he has to have faith that his woman did not cheat on him, the baby is the son of God and the Messiah of prophesy and everything is going to work out. Wow! Now that takes obedience and faith. The miracle is happening right before him and he had the knowledge of the Lord so that he knew he had to listen to the message from the angel. How strong is your faith? Could you accept a true miracle today if God handed it to you? Any of us are turning away God's gifts and miracles on a regular basis because the faith just isn't strong enough. Know this, our Savior was born because of faith in the miraculous, we were saved because of faith in the miraculous. Please, this Christmas season, have faith in the miraculous.
20As he considered this, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream. “Joseph, son of David,” the angel said, “do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife. For the child within her was conceived by the Holy Spirit. 21And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
22All of this occurred to fulfill the Lord’s message through his prophet:
23“Look! The virgin will conceive a child!
She will give birth to a son,
and they will call him Immanuel,
which means ‘God is with us.’”
24When Joseph woke up, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded and took Mary as his wife. 25But he did not have sexual relations with her until her son was born. And Joseph named him Jesus.
