Today, the divine process in a mother’s acceptance of her unborn child is considered along with that for expecting Christ to return.  Commitment, exclusive devotion, natural affection, and fruitful fellowship with divinity are always by the living presence and process of spirit substance from the makeup of GOD.  Included are comfort, edification, instruction, praise, proclamation, and promise.  The Incarnation of Christ upon the earth was not simply a discrete act to accomplish the appearance of divinity in the flesh.  Rather, the Savior’s nativity was to complete and continue multiple divine works that include Creation, judgment, rebirth, revelation, sanctification, and salvation.  Similarly, the Advent (we also say, the harvest, the Rapture, the Second Coming, his appearing) also will advance and accomplish diverse eternal purposes.  One of the fighters at “Yahoo!

Christians is it getting harder to stay devoted to Christianity when the scriptures bring Christ’s birth into question?

Like if this important event in the bible is extremely questionable, how can you even think of entertaining the possibility that Christianity is veracious?

Update: @No Chance Without Jesus, we both know Christ was not born in winter during a Roman census.

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW:  Sing, O heavens; and be joyful, O earth; and break forth into singing, O mountains:  for the LORD hath comforted his people, and will have mercy upon his afflicted.  But Zion said, The LORD hath forsaken me, and my LORD hath forgotten me.  Can a woman forget her sucking child, that she should not have compassion on the son of her womb? yea, they may forget, yet will I not forget thee.  Behold, I have graven thee upon the palms of my hands; thy walls are continually before me.  (Isaiah 49:  13-16, King James Version, KJV)

 

THE DOUBLE DAGGER:  The Divine Christmas Gifts? (12/26/2016); The Peace of Christmas? (12/25/2016); Built Upon the Rock (12/23/2016); The Meaning of Christmas? (12/22/2016); The Mother of GOD? (12/09/2016); Birth, Self-will and Sin? (11/13/2016); Approaching Mothers Day (05/07/2015)

 

“Anonymous”, for mature Christian believers, the Scriptures answer the questions among believers, and only the faith imparted as sprit content from the makeup of GOD is justifiable as a standard for examining and acknowledging the holy writings.  The birth of Jesus is to be understood as an aspect of divine revelation and sacred knowledge, rather than simply secular history.  The beginnings of what you want to call “belief” should be thought of as “organic” like the process that results in a mother’s love for her newborn child.  Instead of being from argument, cultural traditions, debate, logic, carnal reason, exhaustive studies, persuasion by family and friends, her acceptance of the coming birth develops from changes that begin to occur within her own flesh, her own consciousness, and her own spirit.  An expectant mother experiences transformations that include all the patterns she relies upon for her emotional, psychological, and social expression.  The child will exist first as herself, then, as a part of herself, then, as a separate being.  Her love gradually becomes inclusive, unconditional, unquestionable, and unshakeable for her own survival and for that of her offspring.  No born-again believers question the reality and truth that Jesus was born in fulfillment of divine prophecy, for, so to speak,  through rebirth and embracing the proclamation of the Second Coming of Christ, believers all experience growth and transformation like that of an expectant mother.  Consider again the following:

(1.)  Matthew 22:  29, King James Version (KJV):  29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

(2.)  Job 39:  13-17, KJV:  13 Gavest thou the goodly wings unto the peacocks? or wings and feathers unto the ostrich?  14 Which leaveth her eggs in the earth, and warmeth them in dust,  15 And forgetteth that the foot may crush them, or that the wild beast may break them.  16 She is hardened against her young ones, as though they were not her’s:  her labour is in vain without fear;  17 Because God hath deprived her of wisdom, neither hath he imparted to her understanding.

(3.)  Matthew 1:  17-18, KJV:  17 So all the generations from Abraham to David are fourteen generations; and from David until the carrying away into Babylon are fourteen generations; and from the carrying away into Babylon unto Christ are fourteen generations.  18 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise:  When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.

(4.)  John 1:  11-14, KJV:  11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.  12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:  13 Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.  14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

(5.)  John 5:  24-29, KJV:  24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.  25 Verily, verily, I say unto you, The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God:  and they that hear shall live.  26 For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself;  27 And hath given him authority to execute judgment also, because he is the Son of man.  28 Marvel not at this:  for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice,  29 And shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation.

There is far more to be said, correctly applied, and spiritually apprehended.  (For example, (6.)  2nd Timothy 4:  8, KJV:  8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day:  and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.)  Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful.  Be it unto you according to your faith.
