“Therefore, the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel.” – (Isaiah 7:14)
There are people who sneer at the idea of a virgin birth. “Ha!” they say, “How could this happen?” The angel said to Mary, “With God, nothing shall be impossible.” Do you believe that? If you have trouble with the virgin birth, your real trouble is with God.
Be reasonable. If God could make the first man without a father or mother, don’t you think He could bring His Son into this world through a virgin birth?
If you don’t believe in the virgin birth, you have some character problems.
- The character of Mary.
– If Mary had a child out of wedlock, then Mary was an impure woman.
- The character of Jesus.
– If Jesus had not been born of a virgin, he would have been the son of Adam, and in Adam, all die. Jesus Christ would have had the same human proclivities you and I have, who are by nature the children of wrath.
- The character of the Word of God.
– If the virgin birth did not happen, then the Word of God is flawed, because the Word of God clearly, plainly teaches it.
Think about this today: Your salvation is inextricably interwoven with the virgin birth. No virgin birth, no deity. No deity, no sinless life. No sinless life, no sacrificial death. No sacrificial death, no salvation. No salvation, you’re going to hell. Jesus came to Earth that we might go to Heaven; born of a virgin that we might be born again. Thank God for the virgin birth.
