Matthew  2:13 And when they were departed, behold, the angel of the Lord appeareth to Joseph in a dream, saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and flee into Egypt, and be thou there until I bring thee word: for Herod will seek the young child to destroy him.

Any kind of knowing about an event before it happens gives real advantage to the possessor of that body of knowledge. As I read about the story of the wise men and Herod, which resulted in a visitation of Joseph by an Angel, it dawned on me that not all knowing is the same.

There is knowing what IS, knowing what SHOULD BE, knowing what WILL BE and then discerning what CAN BE. Joseph was privy to all these dimensions of knowing prior to escaping to Egypt with Jesus and Mary.

In the present, He knew Jesus had been born with a grande purpose, as a baby, He could not defend himself. He had been told of the future purpose the life of Jesus was to fulfil, so he knew what should be. Then the dimension of what will be came- that Herod will seek for the child to destroy him.

Nonetheless, between what will be and what should be, which are revealed, there is a middle ground of what ‘can be’. This is discerned. Joseph therefore had to map out the cost of acting or not, on what will be, on the basis of his knowledge of what should be.

Revelation and Discernment, therefore, become a two fold cord necessary for destiny realisation and fulfilment.
