A MIRACULOUS  BIRTH (Luke 1:30; 2:8-14)

A MIRACULOUS BIRTH (Luke 1:30; 2:8-14)

December 20, 2020

Now, I’m aware that the world laughs at the idea of a virgin birth. They think of it as some sort of primitive, medieval superstition or something. They laugh, they mock, at the idea of the virgin birth. I can tell you furthermore, the devil hates the idea of the virgin birth, because it teaches both the humanity and the deity of his nemesis, and our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. But worse than the mockery of this world, and worse than the hatred of Satan, is the ignorance of many so-called Christians concerning the virgin birth. Many of them doubt it. Some don’t believe it at all. And others think that it is incidental. 

One of the most frequent challenges about the virgin birth of Christ is that Jesus Christ is not the Son of God.  They will state, “You say that Jesus Christ is the Son of God because He was born of a virgin, and that He didn’t have an earthly father.  Well, Adam didn’t have a father or a mother. Wouldn’t that make Adam more a Son of God than Jesus?”  The answer to that question is found at the very root of our knowledge about who Jesus Christ is.  The answer that the Word of God gives us is that Jesus was not the Son of God because He was born of a virgin.  Instead, He was born of a virgin because He was the Son of God.  

What the other faiths do not understand is that Jesus did not have His start in Bethlehem. Jesus Christ has been the Son of God from before the foundations of time.  In other words, He was the Son of God before Bethlehem, and He chose to step out of the glory to become God incarnate in man, and He did so by being born of a virgin.

Click on the podcast below to hear a message on why the virgin birth is so important to our faith.  Jesus Christ, the Son of God, was born of a virgin that we might be born again. He came to earth that we might go to heaven. He became the Son of man that we might become the sons and daughters of God. That’s what it’s all about. That is why we have the virgin birth.

Amen.

WHY CHRIST IS IMPORTANT TO CHRISTMAS (Matt 1:18 to 2:11)

WHY CHRIST IS IMPORTANT TO CHRISTMAS (Matt 1:18 to 2:11)

December 22, 2014
Each year we celebrate Christmas as a time of giving, a time of getting together with loved ones, and as a time of joy.  Unfortunately, each year there are more and more people who want to take Christ out of the holiday.  It has become politically incorrect to say Merry Christmas.  We are advised now to say Happy Holidays, instead.  The manger scene is no longer allowed to be displayed in our public spaces.  Christ is no longer welcome in our celebrations as a nation.  This is most unfortunate, because Christ is truly the reason for the celebration to occur at all.

As Christians we are losing the battle of the language because we fail to stand up for the Lord and Savior that we serve.  We need to be actively sharing the reason that the virgin birth of Jesus Christ is important to the world.  We need to be sharing with a lost world that God sent His Son to be born in a manger so that we might have everlasting life.

Listen to this podcast to learn the importance of the virgin birth of Christ, and why there is just something special about the name of Jesus.    

Merry Christmas to all of you, and may God bless you as you listen to this lesson.
