“The Midnight Clear – Behold The Virgin”

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was as follows: After His mother Mary was betrothed to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Spirit. Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not wanting to make her a public example, was minded to put her away secretly. But while he thought about these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take to you Mary your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit. And she will bring forth a Son, and you shall call His name Jesus, for He will save His people from their sins.” So all this was done that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by the Lord through the prophet, saying: “Behold, the virgin shall be with child, and bear a Son, and they shall call His name Immanuel,” which is translated, “God with us.”

Matthew 1:18–23 (NKJV) page 1593

ALL PROPHECIES ARE NOT CREATED EQUAL.

  • There are over prophecies in the OT about the Messiah.
  • They were given to to only one man throughout history.
  • Except for His resurrection, none is more specific or important as the “ ” of Jesus.

WAS JESUS REALLY BORN OF A VIRGIN?

  • Doesn’t the used really mean “young woman” or marriable daughter?

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 (NKJV) page 1125

  • God’s intention was to give us a “” to separate His Son from all other men.
  • No other interpretation of the word explains reaction.
  • No other interpretation of the word explains the unwavering insistence on this doctrine.

WHAT IF IT’S NOT TRUE?

  • Then we identify for who is our Messiah.
  • Then God is a , and we can’t trust His promises.
  • Then Jesus was just a descendant of Adam and not .

For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive.

1 Corinthians 15:22 (NKJV) page 1949

Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, in this way death spread to all men, because all sinned.

Romans 5:12 (HCSB) page 1903

  • Then we have no “” to Heaven.

I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. John 14:6 (NKJV) page 1808

“You see, if there were no virgin birth, there would be no sinless Christ. No sinless Christ … no atonement. No atonement … no forgiveness. No forgiveness … no hope of heaven. No hope of heaven … we would all die and go to hell. Thank God for the virgin birth. If you take away the virgin birth, the whole house of Christianity collapses like a house of cards.”
