Are dream revelations normal and frequent in Scripture?
Should we beware of people who claim that God regularly reveals Himself to them through dreams or by angel visits?
Joseph needed to be sure that he was doing God’s will and not just his own. How can we do the same?
“TIDINGS OF COMFORT AND JOY”?
“For Joseph it was not fear of marriage but a fear of God.” Do you agree?
Is the fear of God a mark of grace?
What does fearing God mean?
Matthew 1:21 – She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.”
“Jesus birth was not supernatural, His conception in the womb of a virgin was.”
Was this the mark or sign of a new beginning?
How much did Joseph understand about what was happening?
Was Joseph challenged to receive and welcome Jesus the Saviour and devote the rest of his life to Him?
Is this costly and can it be overwhelming at times?
WHAT’S IN A NAME?
Matthew 1:21 – She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.
There is no one named Jesus in the genealogy of Matthew 1:1-17. God chose the name of His Son. Why is this important?
“Jesus in not only a name; it is who He is.”
What does it mean when we say, “Jesus the Christ”?
Has this changed?
Philippians 2:9-11 – Therefore God has highly exalted Him and bestowed on Him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.
The OT – “ISAIAH HATH FORETOLD HIM”
Matthew 1:22-23 – All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:
“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son,
and they shall call his name Immanuel”
(which means, God with us).
Does this verse explain exactly who Jesus is?
Is God’s timing perfect?
God works in our humanity, Mary was passive not active, she couldn’t do it on her own. Can we save ourselves, or is it all of God?
Is this what Christmas is all about?
THE WAY OF OBEDIENCE
Matthew 1:24 – When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife,
“Joseph heard the word of God; he believed the word of God; and he obeyed the word of God, whatever the cost may be.” – How should this fit into a Christian’s celebration of the birth of Christ?
“To us Joseph seems a silent man. He appears only once in the Gospels outside of the birth narratives. … But he is a wonderful illustration of John Newton’s hymn:
‘Twas grace that taught my heart to fear, And grace my fears relieved.” Your thoughts?
“Joseph was the man God chose and prepared to protect and nurture his incarnate Son.”
Is Joseph unimportant in the Christmas story?
Matthew 1:24-25 – When Joseph woke from sleep, he did as the angel of the Lord commanded him: he took his wife, 25 but knew her not until she had given birth to a son. And he called his name Jesus. “he knew her not”.
“It is a physical way of communication our total devotion and lifelong commitment.”
Did God create sex to be simply a satisfaction of our own desires?
Was there anything wrong with Joseph and Mary having normal sexual relations?
Is “there is nothing wrong with it, so I going to do it” a Biblical principle?
How can we live wisely, for the glory of God and for the blessing of others?
We should ask: Is it helpful? Will it enslave me? How will it affect others? Does it edify?
Did Jesus live to please Himself?
Lord transform us more and more into your likeness.
