When we are filled with the holy ghost we are blessed with wisdom and understanding in placed that we could not before. If you accept Jesus into your live truly as you savior and not just as some TEST. Then you will be blessed with the knowledge of this understanding because God will give it to you.

    That is what the Bible says.

    Matthew 1:18-20

    18Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. 19Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privately. 20But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the LORD appeared to him in a dream, saying, Joseph, you son of David, fear not to take to you Mary your wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. …

In other words, you may not understand how it happened or is possible, but I am not going to comprehend everything God does...

    Read it here

    Luk 1:26 ¶ And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,

    Luk 1:27 To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin's name [was] Mary.

    Luk 1:28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, [thou that art] highly favoured, the Lord [is] with thee: blessed [art] thou among women.

    Luk 1:29 And when she saw [him], she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be.

    Luk 1:30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God.

    Luk 1:31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS.

    Luk 1:32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:

    Luk 1:33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

    Luk 1:34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?

    Luk 1:35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God.
