Why would Joseph believe an angel in a dream?
Believing is a basic tenement of Christianity. We are believers
I think Joseph lived a supernatural life with supernatural encounters. The Bible never says he woke up and said – Whoa that was freaky!
He was waiting and expecting God to give him direction. He never believed he was “on his own.” He had great expectation that he would receive an answer, therefore would wait to hear from God.
Do we live this way? Would we be surprised if God showed up and spoke to us in the form of an angel? Should we not be expecting dreams, visitations, and answers to our questions? Maybe our lack of expectation keeps them from becoming realization.
