Topic: THE MYSTERY OF HIS BIRTH .. Part 2
Text: Matthew 1:23.
23: Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.
In part 1, I did explain how divinity was separated from humanity which led to lost of eternity and God’s effort in reconciling man to himself, let’s dig further as the Holy Spirit will help us.
Adam was moulded of clay, he was mere statue until God breathed into his nostrils, that breathe is an impartation of the Spirit of God in mere statue that made him become a living being. This is what transpired in the process of creating man; Adam was nothing without the Spirit of God, he would have had no life without the Spirit of God being imparted in him, it means Adam would practically die if the Spirit of God leave him which was what happened eventually after he ate the forbidden fruit: there was a departure of the Spirit of God from him. At that point he lost fellowship and relationship with God.
From that point God neither visited him nor communicate with him. Man’s relationship with God was from a distance even for those who lived righteous in the dispensation of the law.
God cut off from man from that time, he only gave commandments that must be obeyed and disobedience attract strict punishment. Through out the old testament you wouldn’t see phrase like ‘ the kingdom of God ‘, God never promised them his kingdom, their highest promise was the promised land.
God willing to reconcile man back to himself use the same process of creating Adam. How do I know? Look at this scripture 1Corinthians 15:45 Thus it is written, The first man Adam became a living being (an individual personality); the last Adam (Christ) became a life-giving Spirit [restoring the dead to life]. Amplified.
Adam was made by the impartation of the Holy Spirit and Jesus was born by the impartation of the Holy Spirit in Mary, same process.
God departed from man through Adam while he reconciled with man through Jesus. That’s the reason Jesus is called Emmanuel ‘ God is with us ‘, it means God departed from man through Adam and now by the birth of Jesus he is restored back to man.
It is divinity coming to dwell with Humanity again. It’s everyone’s responsibility to ensure that God does not depart from him or her through the act of sin.
Now we can relate with God freely and we have hope of reigning with him eternally. This is the reason the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:10,11.
It’s good news of great joy because divinity has returned to humanity, God now dwell with us, his Spirit that left human beings has been restored. God bless you.
* Lord, let not your Spirit depart from me in Jesus name.
