Such an exciting and interesting subject that challenges us to live for Christ. When you realize that if you were the only one on earth you would need to be saved from your sin and Jesus Christ would have gone to the cross for just one person, yes, just for you.
Now let’s start looking at the incarnation of Jesus Christ as He was born to the Virgin Mary.
“In the sixth month of Elizabeth’s pregnancy, God sent the angel Gabriel to Nazareth, a town in Galilee, to a virgin pledged to be married to a man name Joseph, a descendant of David. The virgin’s man was Mary. The angel went to her and said, “Greetings, you are highly favored! The Lord is with you. Luke 1:26-28 NIV
Mary the mother of Jesus was a young virgin Jewish woman and she is greeted by the angel Gabriel who tells her you are highly favored. Mary must have been shocked to have such a visitor and then telling her that she had such great favor with God.
“Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. But the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call Him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David, and He will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever, his kingdom will never end.” Luke 1:29-33 NIV
Well needless to say the greeting that Gabriel delivered got more and more intensive for Mary and she was bewildered, it was an immense amount of information for her to take in. In her fear the angel Gabriel told her fear not, you have favor with God.
“How will this be,” Mary asked the angel since I am a virgin?” Luke 1:34 NIV
“The angel answered, the Holy Spirit will come on you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. So the Holy One to be born will be called the Son of God.” Luke 1:35 NIV
Then Mary says something that shows her intense faith in God and His Word: “I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. May your word to me be fulfilled.” Then the angel left her. Luke 1:38 NIV
I also like what the KJV translation is: “And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her.” Luke 1:38 KJV
The Father God had found a truly godly woman who was full of faith when He had decided on Mary to be His Son Jesus’ mother and give birth to Him. (THE INCARNATION OF JESUS CHRIST)
We can all learn from the faith that Mary had even after hearing some of the most profound words from God that a person has ever heard.
Mary in the KJV version said in effect, Lord God I am yours and whatever you want I will do.
Mary did not try to figure things out with her head or even delay her answer, she was willing and obedient from the very first sound of Gabriel’s greeting to do what her God wanted her to do.
The Bible says: “For we walk by FAITH, not by SIGHT.” 2 Corinthians 5:7 KJV
Let’s compare this with doubting Thomas who was not there when Jesus had risen from the grave after the crucifixion and appeared to the disciples.
He made this statement that he would not believe unless he could see and put his fingers in the imprints of the nails in Jesus hand and put his hand in Jesus side where the Roman sword went into Jesus. Please see scriptures John 20:24-29 NIV
Jesus made this statement to Thomas: “Because you have seen me, you have believed, blessed are those who have not seen, and yet have believed.” John 20:29 NIV
There are so many things in your life as a Christian that you must have faith in without using any of your 5 physical senses.
The 5 physical senses are: seeing, touching, hearing, smelling and taste.
Some Christians unfortunately will only believe something if they can experience it with one of their 5 physical senses.
Take for example divine healing, some will not believe in divine healing in their body unless they feel and see their healing and have no more pain as opposed to having faith in divine healing.
When they or others prayed for them in the spiritual realm they were already healed if they believed in God’s Word and should praise God for their healing, then it will manifest in their body and they will feel and see they are well.
The faith comes FIRST, THEN as healing manifests in the body you will see and feel the divine healing you have prayed for.
People will not experience much of the supernatural things of God until they have faith in God and His Word. Faith in God and His Word does not use the 5 physical senses.
I am so moved by Mary’s faith, she could not understand such a statement as she was going to be the mother of God, Jesus Christ the second person of the Trinity.
Yet in essence Mary said I don’t understand what you are telling me but I believe and will act in faith according to what you have told me.
That my Brother and Sisters in the Lord is mountain moving faith for sure. WOW!
Of course Joseph was alarmed as Mary became pregnant. Joseph knew that he had not had sexual relations with Mary and was concerned however the angel Gabriel appeared to Joseph and assured him that Mary’s pregnancy was of the Holy Spirit and who was conceived in her was the Son of God and Joseph was to call Him Jesus. Matthew 1:20-21 NIV
So now we enter into the actual birth of Jesus to Mary His mother.
“In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. (This was the first census that took place while Quirinius was governor of Syria. And everyone went to their own town to register.” Luke 2:1-3 NIV
Can you imagine another country coming into your country and taking it over and then even decided to tax you and then send the money back to their homeland for their pleasure.
That is what happened when the Romans took over Israel and caused much stir among the Jewish people. Every person went to their own home town to register to be taxed.
Joseph and Mary fulfilled Bible prophecy by going to Bethlehem: “So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David, because he belonged to the house and line of David. He went there to register with Mary, who was pledged to be married to him and was expecting a child. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped Him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no guest room available for them.” Luke 2:4-7 NIV
You talk about the love of God for humanity. Here we see God the Father having Jesus to be born of the Virgin Mary and not even having a decent place for God the Son, Jesus to be born in. So Jesus ends up being wrapped up in some cloths and His bed was a trough where cattle and livestock eat their hay.
As a young boy my parents lived near a dairy farm and I visited it to get milk with them many times. I would see the cows chewing their cud and the green slime dripping out of their mouth. Gross!
So now you can imagine that the feeding trough that Jesus had for a bed probably laying on some hay was not clean as the dripping from the cows mouths dripped right in the trough. Then they did not have any sanitary wipes as we have today so the best Mary and Joseph could do was a wet cloth to try to clean up the trough.
God’s love for mankind, you bet!!!
God the Father did not take unfair advantage of Jesus’ birth when Jesus was born into this world, into His humanity. God did not have Jesus cut in line. Jesus was born the tough way in a very bad atmosphere where cattle and other livestock were living so the smell must have been terrible.
But there is the baby Jesus, the Son of the Father God laying there in what would be poverty. No palace, no fancy bedroom, no fine linens. Mary and Joseph had to take what was left as there was no other room for baby Jesus.
How could we ever question the love of God for us and this is just the start of Jesus life on earth.
To say Jesus life on earth was tough would be an understatement.
You remember that Jesus came to this earth in His incarnation as 100% God but also 100% man and He experienced much of His life on this earth in His humanity.
We are going to look more of Jesus life in His incarnation next Monday. We hope you will be here and let someone else know about this teaching. It just may be the thing that would bring them to the Lord if they are not already saved. If they are already saved then this teaching might answer many questions that they have and help them to grow in the Word of God.

We are involved in our ministry on an international level and also will be continuing to minister at churches as we are led to go to these churches in the United States.
On Tuesday October 27, 2015 the Spirit of God gave me a dream about a very large amount of people that I was ministering to. It seemed they were from different parts of the world. As I ministered to them I told them that WORLD WIDE REVIVAL was coming and that it would touch everyone on the face of the earth.
Every time I would say something to this huge crowd of people there would come a shout of excitement from them. But as I looked over to my right there was a man who I got eye contact with and I said this to him as we looked at each other. I told that man, whoever he was, that it was even going to affect him even though he would try to resist it.
And then I woke up.
Nita and I knew then and now that it was a dream from the Spirit of God and that He had called Nita and me to be part of this END TIME WORLD WIDE REVIVAL.
Since then I have ministered on revival in meetings and conversations I have had with other churches around the world.
JESUS SAID, “SAY NOT YE, THERE ARE YET FOUR MONTHS, AND THEM COMETH HARVEST? BEHOLD, I SAY UNTO YOU, LIFT UP YOUR EYES, AND LOOK ON THE FIELDS; FOR THEY ARE WHITE ALREADY TO HARVEST.” JOHN 4:35
Mankind has a tendency to push revival back to sometime in the future.
REVIVAL, REVIVAL, REVIVAL. (NOW, NOW, NOW).
“AS GOD’S PARTNERS, WE BEG YOU NOT TO ACCEPT THIS MARVELOUS GIFT OF GOD’S KINDNESS AND THEN IGNORE IT. FOR GOD SAYS, AT JUST THE RIGHT TIME, I HEARD YOU. ON THE DAY OF SALVATION I HELPED YOU.” 2 Corinthians 6:1-2, NEW LIVING TRANSLATION. INDEED THE “RIGHT TIME” IS NOW. TODAY IS THE DAY OF SALVATION.”
We are spreading the Word of God around the world as the Holy Spirit leads us to new areas in an ever increasing amount.
For you ministers or leaders of groups you can contact us for ministering in your church at: G Mail:
If you have come to this ministry website today and have never asked Jesus Christ to come into your life and be born again, you are not here by accident, the Spirit of the Living God drew you here.
If you do not have the assurance of where you would spend eternity if you died right now please go to the top of this website and it will have a tab for “SALVATION.” In that tab will be what is required by God to be right with Him. When you pray that prayer and accept the Lord please send us a Gmail to our website at: firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you accepted the Lord as your Savior and Lord and were born again. We want to rejoice with you and pray for you. Thank you (Please look up these scriptures: John 3:3 and Romans 10:9-10 it talks about you being born again).
Surely you know people who are going through hell and high water with real battles in their life both Christians and those that are not born again Christians. The Word of God that is presented each week will help turn their situation around if they do the Word of God and instead of the anguish and tears will bring a smile and victory to their life, isn’t that worth you sharing this website with others?
