|Encompass Of A Man
Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
The way a baby is created is no mystery to science or the rest of the world. Yet the concept of a virgin being with child or have the ability to be pregnant without a man seems impossible unless you live in this day in age where science has made infertility almost a myth through the use of in virtro fertilization in women that wish not to marry but have kids by other oppositions. The idea of a virgin birth by scientific means is possible today, but in the time of ancient Israel it was not. The fact the first woman was created from the rib of man, meaning woman was taken from msn by God only implies woman was formed not by a new product, but recycled by a rib. Yes Woman we got formed from the best part of man, and they do not realize it. The best part taken from them, so we truly are manís better half. However a woman would encompass a man not by natural conception but through purity, of faith in God. She would bring forth a child begotten of God. Begotten of promise not by man through Godís design of conception but from Godís Holy Word.
The concept of a mother teaching her children scripture is not foreign, for Eve was the first to praise God in scripture, and her offspring first to worship God after the time of Cain and Abel. She would have been the one to gather and tend the garden, while Adam went off to hunt leaving the child with her by day and night. Child would learn from his mother first, and then the father. God wants to take his people and teach them by His Spirit. The virgin birth symbolizing more then just the Messiah coming, but God teaching us by His Spirit by the keeping of His word.
Israel had forgotten the value of Godís Holy Word. The promises God makes to man through history. Though there were teachers of Godís law, they had become harlots to the world. How is one a harlot. When the church or individual claims that it is okay not to be segregated in faith from the world. Segregated, that other religions are okay to follow. I will agree anyone has the right to believe anything and worship anyway they please, but I only believe there is one faith. One way to heaven. Giving someone the freedom to think is not the same as deciding for oneself their own faith. The sin of unbelief and whoredom from God is not of God. There those that teach universalism in religion. I agree that religions sometimes over lap in what each believe, but they never overlap to the point of changing faiths.
I believe if someone comes from another religion background, then you might have that culture within your being, but God has a way of changing your heart and developing and teaching you what it means to believe in Him alone. The whore not have two faiths but coming to a point realizing there is only one God. Is there anything wrong with learning about other religions, no, if you know what you yourself believe. God is not liar, and speaks only truth. That should be the starting point of faith is truth. Godís salvation plan always coming from His word. Jesus is the word of God in the flesh. Born of a virgin by His word and by the hovering of the Holy Spirit over Mary. If one can not believe in a virgin conception, they lack faith in Godís word. Nothing is impossible for God. What do you believe today the truth from God and His Word, or your own ability of your own word.?
Dear Heavenly Father though something you claim and say sound fair fetch, help us to remember all things are possible by your word. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
