Joseph, the Lord’s Earthly Father

By Apostle Tonya

In a past season, while I was delighting in the Holy Father’s Presence, He brought to my remembrance Joseph, the Blessed Master’s Earthly Father and the instructions the Holy Spirit was faithful to giveth to Joseph in his warning dreams to protect the Young Baby Jesus. Thereafter, I began to reflect on the attributes of Joseph’ character that reminded me of our Heavenly Father. I began asking the Father what was it in Joseph’s heart wherefore He saw most profoundly that He would entrust Him to raise His only begotten Son, our Blessed Master.  Most faithfully, in a matter of days as I sat writing an assignment, the Holy Spirit answered my prayer.  The Spirit of God revealed that Joseph was obedient, humble and a meek father to His Beloved, Son in the Earth.  Most surely, the Comforter left me quite intrigued with His Answer about Joseph’ character. 

I must say, I adore studying about the Blessed Master most.  Particularly, of our Lord’s Heart, and His Blessed Family.  On one occasion, during my time of training with the Holy Spirit I was led by Him to the Book of Matthew, Chapter 2:14.  In this passage, we read of the faithful and obedient steps of Joseph after receiving a warning dream from thy Lord: 

This passage surely remindeth us of both the honor Joseph had for His divine dreams from thy Holy Spirit, and the Holy One’s Protection of His, Son our Savior. 

In a few weeks, we shall gather to honor our natural and spiritual fathers. Looking back at the rich memories of my childhood, I am most thankful thy Lord blessed me with an abundance of love from three grandfathers.  Such blessed life I experienced when my maternal and paternal grandfathers and a maternal step-grandfather who also loved me as if I were his own were on Earth.  As I have ofttimes written, my late father was such a handsome, wise man and was most protective of my mother, siblings and me until he transitioned to Heaven.  I surely miss my father. 

Fathers, I pray you will continue to be the pillars of strength expected from the Holy Lord to your families. Amen.
