Day 20 Celebrating Immanuel (Dec 25th)
JOY TO THE WORLD THE LORD IS COME; LET EARTH RECEIVE HER KING…AMEN
FOR UNTO US IS BORN THIS DAY IN THE CITY OF DAVID A SAVIOR, WHICH IS CHRIST THE LORD. (Luke 2:11)
“Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man-child…” (Isaiah 66: 7 KJV)
Several years ago while studying my Bible, I feel the LORD showed me a great passage, Isaiah 66:7, and provided me with an amazing insight into the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ… Mary experienced NO labor, pains, or discomfort at His birth!
And, when you think about it; why should she? God had given woman the curse of bringing forth children in travail (labor) and pain as a result of Eve’s sin in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3:16)… “In sorrow (pain) thou shalt bring forth children…”
The Virgin Mary did not conceive Jesus in Sin…”She was found with child of the Holy Ghost.” (Matthew 1:18). Jesus was no ordinarily conceived baby. He was God’s only Son. He had no sin. As a result, NO sin would be involved in either His conception or his birth…So, there would be NO curse upon his conception or his birth! Mary would NOT know the pain and travail of normal child birth until she delivered children conceived later on by her earthly husband, Joseph.
JESUS CHRIST…A miraculous conception, a miraculous birth, a miraculous life, a miraculous death, a miraculous resurrection…Any way you look at it…Jesus was and is MIRACULOUS!
This is why the whole earth stops to celebrate His birth….THE SINLESS CONCEPTION AND SINLESS BIRTH OF IMMANUEL….AMAZING and AWESOME, AMEN! Oh, there are so many ways to Celebrate Immanuel…Today, let us Celebrate His Amazing Birth in Bethlehem…Amen.
Remember, God Loves You!
