When Joseph the Father of Jesus Died - Jesus' Obedience

The life of God’s first-born son was transferred into the womb of a virgin, but Jesus had a stepfather, Joseph. Joseph died when Jesus was a child, the Bible doesn’t say how. I want to share that with you now, to help you understand more fully the obedience of Jesus and his walk with his Heavenly Father. During my experience of Holy Stigmata, I am shown many things, and this was one of them, seen and heard by me in third person, looking on.

I see a thin path winding up the side of a steep hill outside of Nazareth, a village in the area of Galilee, with Joseph leading a donkey who is carrying large packs of supplies on his back. I am aware that the packs carry roots, vegetables, hammers, chisels and other tools. Behind the donkey follows Jesus, who looks to be in his pre-teens, and then a couple of his half-siblings, two younger boys.

UnHoly Manipulation

I hear the donkey scream and see him panic and rear up; a tall dark shadow had suddenly appeared in the rock just above the trail. I knew it was one of the original fallen angels, the one called the Devil and Satan. Now the donkey was trying to bolt in his panic, but the pack weight had slid to one side, and was pulling him down the hill. He continued braying and Joseph had one hand on the rope and his other hand on the harness, trying to control and calm the donkey. The donkey was still trying to run away and was going crazy as the pack further slipped sideways and tipped him off the trail. Joseph’s hand was still holding onto the chin of the halter, and he was strongly pulling back to keep the donkey from going down any further. Then I saw the demon flash another color and the halter broke. The halter breaking made Joseph quickly fall backwards and lose his footing. Both he and the donkey fell down the steep hillside. I saw the face of the demon look directly at me and smile hideously, then disappear.

At the time, there was another family coming up the trail who had seen what was happening and were rushing up to help. Then I saw the woman and her two older sons comforting Jesus and the other children and escorting them quickly back down the trail. Her husband had been shouting down the hill to Joseph, but there had been no movement and no answer. The man picked up some things that were scattered, and started carefully down the hillside towards where Joseph was, about 40 feet below. Then the scene faded out.

Praying for Resurrection

The next thing I see is Jesus trying to comfort his mother Mary, and Joseph’s covered body on a table nearby. Jesus is telling her everything will be alright, and he is crying too. Jesus from the beginning knows and remembers whose Son he really is, and what prayer can do. And I know in my heart he is planning to resurrect his earthly father Joseph, just like I had seen him resurrect a bird when he was younger. Now Jesus holds Mary’s hand and stands up and puts his other hand on the shoulder of Joseph and looks up and starts confidently praying out loud. Nothing happens.

I hear a deep voice but can’t make out the words - but I am aware that God is talking to Jesus. Jesus lets go of Mary’s hand and kneels on the floor in front of the body and starts weeping as though his heart is breaking. I am aware that the resurrection was not to be asked for again. I do not know if Jesus was given the reasons why by his Heavenly Father. But I am aware that if Jesus asked again, his prayer would also be granted and Joseph would be brought back to life, but that it would be an act of disobedience against God and forever change the future. An act of disobedience would also negate the redemption of imperfect humanity through a perfect man. Everything would be lost for everyone else. But the choice was still made available. God is big on free will choice.

Obedience in the Midst of Suffering

For three days, that choice was Jesus’ to make. Resurrection can be made within that time period when 3 things occur: (1). If the prayer is granted by God. (2). If the body has been sufficiently healed by prayer to receive the person’s spirit again. (3). If the free will of the person who died agrees to come back. Three days is literally a “deadline” that cannot be crossed. So, for three days Jesus had the opportunity to raise Joseph from the dead. Even after the first day when Joseph’s body was taken from the house to the place of burial, Jesus could have said the prayer again. Instead, Jesus mourned with his family. He comforted his mother and siblings with the words, “He is still with us.” And Jesus felt everything so much stronger - his DNA was perfect, and that was reflected in heightened senses, physically, emotionally and spiritually. And he was still a child, missing his wonderful dad. Yet he had his mind made up. He did not waver after hearing what God had told him. He stayed obedient even when it was distressing to do so. He trusted God.

And so the paternal nurturing of Jesus’ childhood was cut short, and he, his mother and his siblings would have a tougher time of it. They still had their farming, but the additional income provided from Joseph’s skills at carpentry, masonry and building would be sorely missed. Jesus remembered what he had been taught and helped his siblings practice and learn. He started doing odd jobs wherever he could, more so as he got older, including carpentry, to help bring in money and trade goods for his family. Mary relied on him a lot. He was the man of the family now. And he did a good job with the responsibility and was pleasing to both of his fathers looking on throughout his whole life, death, and life again, where he freely lifted up his spirit, being obedient even unto death as a perfect man and our redemption.

The Continued Obedience of Jesus

Even to this day, Jesus Christ continues to be obedient, even as he prepares for the last part of this world shift. With his unwavering trust in God and love for all of humanity, past, present and future, God has placed him forefront as King and Savior. “For just as through the disobedience of the one man the many were made sinners, so also through the obedience of the one man the many will be made righteous.” (Romans 5:19) He is also the Divine Warrior leading the battalion of this change against earthly government, where God’s will and counsel will reign on earth again, with His Will being done on earth as it is in heaven. In fulfilling this original purpose for mankind, none of the unHoly angels will be able to disturb humanity again, and even death will be no more. There will be no end to Christ governing as the Prince of Peace, with God his Father the righteous and loving ruler over all. (Isaiah 9:6,7. Matthew 6:9,10. Revelation 21:3,4).

If Jesus had not been obedient at any time - even once - during his pre-human existence or during his life on earth, none of us would have this hope set before us. But now we have the promise of being able to come before the Presence of God when we die, of resurrection for those who die during the waves of world shift called Armageddon, and of all of us living forever happily on a paradise earth. Because of Jesus being respectful and choosing to put God’s will and authority in front of his own, everything that God had promised is made available to us. Being obedient is not always easy and can be very painful and stressful at the moment, just like it was for Jesus as a child and later when he lifted up his life upon the cross. But when we stay obedient to our Heavenly Father, we are rewarded. He knows what is best for us and for others, and the best timing for everything. We can fully trust him. We can be obedient and loyal like Jesus.

We Know What Obedience Is Too

We were created in God’s image and that means we know in our core what is right and what is wrong, what is good and what is of the greater good, and when something is outright wrong. Pray and pay attention, even when unHoly angels seek to distract, manipulate and destroy. You may not always know the “why” behind the answer you receive, and with faith, you must be OK with that. But you can rest assured that all answers coming from God will always the best and for the highest good, even when things seem too difficult.

“As Jesus was saying these things, a woman in the crowd called out, “Blessed is the mother who gave you birth and nursed you.” He replied, “Blessed rather are those who hear the word of God and obey it.” (Luke 11:27,28) “Jesus replied, “Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them.” (John 14:23) “If you love me, keep my commands.” (John 14:15) As your spiritual journey continues, may your walk with God be ever obedient - even when it is difficult - and you will know happiness beyond what you could ever imagine. Your heart and spirit will be truly blessed by the One who looks on in secret and knows you by name and fulfills the best future for you that right now you can’t even imagine. Stay obedient to God’s Divine Love and nothing will be withheld from you. END 2024 (C)Tiffany Snow
