“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a
virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”
Many deny the fact
that Jesus was born of a virgin, particularly at Christmas time.It’s impossible to not notice the way all
of the world’s false religions and make-believe disciplines gang up on the
message of Christ at Christmas.They
don’t do it to any other non-Christian holiday, only to Jesus’ Holiday.That’s because He’s the only One they’re threatened by.They know He’s the only One Who’s not a
counterfeit, so He’s the only One they desecrate.
Many of them argue
that the Hebrew word for “virgin” in the above Scripture really means
“young woman.” This is an attempt to place Jesus in a strictly human
class, removing Him entirely from the Divine.
However, I looked that word
up myself in a Hebrew dictionary. I found that although the word “almah” does mean “young woman,” it is never intended to
deny the young woman’s virginity. What it actually means is “a young
woman who is pregnant yet still a virgin”!
There is simply no way to deny that the Mother of Jesus Christ remained a virgin
until after Jesus was born, whether you like it or not.
Why was it so
important that Jesus be born of a virgin?
I will answer that question
scientifically, Biblically and briefly.
God created man
sinless, giving him authority over all creation in the Earth. (Genesis
1:26) Man, being created in God’s image, had free will, or the will
to choose. He could obey or
disobey. God told him that by disobeying Him and eating from The Tree
of the Knowledge of Good and Evil, he would no longer be sinless and would
lose his authority. (Genesis 3)
I’ll cut to the
chase. Man disobeyed and now God was in a crisis.
“Just” God, He knew man had to be punished to keep him from a lifestyle of
Being a “Merciful” God, He knew man needed to be
forgiven so he would trust God and continue to love Him.
“Loving” God, He came up with a plan that would satisfy both His Justice
and His Mercy.
That plan involved a substitute taking the punishment of death
for God’s created man. The substitute had to be sinless in order for
the sacrifice to be acceptable. No other human being could be that
Why not? One reason only. All human beings get
their blood from Adam. (Romans 5:17) Therefore, all human blood is
tainted by sin.
All babies get
their blood from their father, not their mother. This is a proven
scientific and medical fact. God’s substitute would have an earthly
mother, making him fully human. God’s substitute would have God as
His Father, making Him fully God – WITH GOD’S BLOOD, not Adam’s blood
through an earthly father!
Creator God Himself would “create” a human
seed directly inside of a virgin’s uterus, without human sexual
relationship. That way her offspring would have holy blood, untainted
by an earthly father. The child would grow up human in every way (Luke ) yet at the same time be
perfect, sinless and Divine.
As an adult, He would become God’s perfect, acceptable Sacrifice for the
sin of humanity. (John 3:16,17)
This is why Jesus
had to be born of a virgin woman, with God as His Father -- to become the
Perfect, Sinless, Willing, Human, Divine
Substitute with God’s Holy Blood surging through His veins.
That’s why the
Bible says, “For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin;
that we might be made the righteousness
of God in him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)
Now let’s talk
about you for a moment.
Do you accept God’s Sinless Sacrifice on your
Do you believe Jesus was born of a virgin to become your
Sinless Savior, Deliverer and Liberator?
