The Power  of the Most High  Will Overshadow  You

There have been  all sorts  of wild  and sickeningly abominable  false teachings  about how the virgin Mary  became pregnant  with the baby Jesus.    They are  too evil  and disgusting  to even mention.     In considering  the miraculous birth  of our Lord Jesus,  one needs  to look  at what God says.     God Almighty  is the holy One — we are the weak,  clueless sinners.     God is the most righteous.     He cannot lie  or sin  in any way.     So,  it is what  He says  that we must accept,  if we care   one smidgeon  about truth.

When the angel Gabriel  announced to Mary  that she would bear  the Christ child,  she herself wondered  how this would happen.     In Luke 1:34-37  it records,

And Mary said  to the angel,  “How can this be,  since I am  a virgin?”

And the angel answered  and said  to her,  “The Holy Spirit  will come  upon you,  and the power  of the Most High  will overshadow you;  and for that reason  the holy offspring  shall be called  the Son  of God.     And behold,  even your relative Elizabeth  has also conceived  a son  in her old age;  and she who was called barren  is now  in her sixth month.

For nothing  will be impossible  with God.

Here is Mary’s answer — “For nothing  will be impossible  with God.”     Mary knew fullwell that when God created this world and  all things,  He merely spoke  and it came  into being.     Check out Genesis, chapter 1  for that account.     Now, Mary learned  that her aged cousin  had also conceived a son,  who was called  John the Baptist.     How?     “For nothing  will be impossible  with God.”     What God says is  what happens.     It is the power  of His word and authority  as Creator  of all things.     There is nothing created that God did not create.

When the apostle Paul  teaches us  about Jesus,  he says in Colossians 1:15-17,

And He is the image  of the invisible God,  the firstborn  of all creation.     For in Him  all things  were created,  both in the heavens  and on earth,  visible  and invisible,  whether thrones  or dominions  or rulers  or authorities — all things  have been created  through Him  and for Him.    

And He is before all things,  and in Him  all things hold together…

In other words,  Jesus is God Almighty  made visible to us.     He created all things.     His coming  to this earth  to save us  from our sins  is His work.     When describing  God’s saving power,  Isaiah 49:26 says,

And all flesh  will know  that I,  the LORD,  am your Savior,
And your Redeemer,  the Mighty One  of Jacob.

The one and only LORD  came  in the form  of Christ Jesus,  to redeem us  from our sins.     With Him  “nothing  will be impossible”.     Man’s imagination  should not go  one iota  beyond that.     We need  to realize  that God Almighty  totally humbled Himself  to be born  a true man  for our sake.     Because  God humbled Himself  for our sake,  we need  to humbly  accept  His truths.

Seeing God’s pure love  for us,  we say,  “Hallelujah!     LORD,  open up our hearts  and minds  to know and praise You  rightly.”

Love,
Margaret

Not that I have already obtained it,  or have already  become perfect, but I press on  in order that  I may  lay hold  of that for which also  I was laid hold of  by Christ Jesus.
