|Time Of Christ:Son Of God
Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
A women with out intercourse would conceive a child. A child of the Holy Ghost. The miracle of conception coming not by normal means of God but the impossible means of Godís Holy Word. The angel Gabrielle said that the Holy Ghost would hover over her and she would conceive. Not a man would, but the Spirit of God. Godís Spirit hover over the water and God created light by his word. God needs no mechanics to make anything. Yet he formed man out of clay the first one he made. The second man he made came by the word. The first woman God made came from the rib of man and He yet to try and make another.
Jesus would be the Only Begotten of the Father God, but He was not the only one called the son of God. All mankind are the sons of God. A term used in Jewish history and yet the significant of Jesus being the Son of God would be lost to the heathens who understood not as well as the Jews for a time. The term son of God be flippant as any word in everyday language, not significant enough until one uses the world only and begotten in a sentence. Yet only declared over a course of a three year ministry. His name would be Jesus meaning Joshua/Yeshua/Jehoshua or Jehovah is salvation. Jesus would also be the great ancestor of King David and His throne would have no end. His throne would be a continual state.
Let us think for a moment did Jesus ever become king, not of the throne of David in Jerusalem or not yet anyway. He would come again and take the throne when He returns, but what the throne is really about is our hearts. He would reign in the heart of man. Now if we look at our nation the love of Christ supposedly reigns, yet most would agree this is not always so and then sometimes it overboard. Yet our nation does not claim God in battle, even if they have praying men and women in military, for there also heathen and other religious people with them. Our nation is one of diversity in religion. As Christians we must examine our history of what type of leaders we had. Most followed the Bible not all were Christians in doctrine. What that means is more then one person follows scripture sometimes because of prophesy contained within.
Where does this leave Christ reign in the heart it is for those that receive and follow Jesus. Jesus does not reign in those peopleís heart that has never received Him as Lord. The anti Christ appears to follow Godís word but it not necessarily true. They follow by works and by prophetic implications that can be study. Some saying I will wait to receive Christ when I see Him in the sky, not knowing that He may coming after their death.
What is the point Christ is on the throne of all that receive Him as Lord but still not on the throne of unbelievers beyond examining prophesy, or history of scripture. I rather have someone that studies and examines for evidence in this world because of historical account of prophesy then not have these people not study at all. The wise men came and worshipped Jesus but they followed the stars and the signs in the stars. They were astrologers. God woke the world to His Sonís coming. Jesus was actually prophesied about long before the book Isaiah when the sign of the virgin birth was given.
Mary wanted to know how she would know the truth of Gabrielle words. Gabrielle told her of her cousin Elizabeth being old having conceived that was barren. Mary receive the news the angel gave her as being true and said to Gabrielle let be as you said.
We can not deny the scripture speaks of angels as messengers of God but it the appearance that is often over looked. Not even at the time of Christ did all believe that angels of God existed, but they came as messenger has God sent. Evidence from God was available to the believer with prophesy. Having a sign that what they believe would happen would come. God is performing God is going to give the ability of belief for the impossible. God used His people to bring forth the prophesy of Jesus. He did not use the heathens for that. Yet the heathens would be aware. God trust people of faith with His news and His Son.
Dear Heavenly Father receiving your Son this Christmas is only the greatest gift anyone can receive. I ask right now if anyone reading that wants to receive Christ just bow and say Lord Jesus come into my heart today. I receive Godís word as truth and I ask you to forgive me of my sins. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
If you prayed this prayer you have received Jesus as Savior today and your are now His child, and a child of the King.
Continual Scripture Study for Devotion:Romans 10:9-10 KJV
(9) That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
(10) For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
