Jesus was Undeniably Distinguished in His Birth – Part 2 of “The Work of the Holy Spirit in Christ’s birth.”
The prophet Isaiah 7:17 gave prophecy about the Messiah coming to earth this way:
“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel”. This historical prophecy is essential in our understanding the Work of the Spirit in the virgin birth.
Why the Virgin Birth?
If the relevance of the virgin birth is not understood, or mis-understood, we lose the central part of why mankind needed redeeming in the first place. We lose the purpose of redemption.
A Supernatural Conception:
Without looking into the Work of the Spirit from the beginning, you will not understand the significance of the Holy Spirit and the influence of the Holy Spirit in Christ’s life-line. There is a Parallel between Christ’s incarnation by the Power of the Spirit and the New Birth of the Christian by the Spirit.
Mary did not conceive Jesus in her womb by the actions of man, but by the power of The Holy Spirit. Jesus Christ, a sinless man, who came from Heaven, was conceived super-naturally, even though He had the appearance of an ordinary man.
Unless Born Again:
Jesus gives a beautiful analogy of what it means to be “born again” in John 3:3. He said, unless one is born again, one cannot see the Kingdom of God. The natural man cannot see God, you must be born again. Jesus appeared like a natural man, however, He was from Heaven, a spotless sacrificial lamb, unlike Adam, who introduced sin into the world. Christ was born sinless and guiltless. He is the One who prevailed, enabling those who believe in Him to live a life of distinction.
The new-birth of the sinner, comes through Jesus Christ, the spotless Lamb, who came to this earth FREE of the sin and guilt that overcame Adam.
