Today, while many of us are continuing to celebrate the nativity of Jesus Christ, reply is on the appearance of divinity through both Creation and the birth of Jesus as Redeemer and Savior. The genealogy of Jesus, and the Patriarchs who came forth having the inheritance and priesthood of Adam come into view once again as we respond to a fighter in the “Yahoo! Answers” Religion and Spirituality public forum using the ID “Faez” (Level 1 with 135 points, a member since September 10, 2018) who posted the following:

 

Who is more superior? Jesus, who was born without a father, or Adam, who had neither father nor mother ?

 

THE GOLDEN ARROW: Which was the son of Jacob, which was the son of Isaac, which was the son of Abraham, which was the son of Thara, which was the son of Nachor, Which was the son of Saruch, which was the son of Ragau, which was the son of Phalec, which was the son of Heber, which was the son of Sala, Which was the son of Cainan, which was the son of Arphaxad, which was the son of Sem, which was the son of Noe, which was the son of Lamech, Which was the son of Mathusala, which was the son of Enoch, which was the son of Jared, which was the son of Maleleel, which was the son of Cainan, Which was the son of Enos, which was the son of Seth, which was the son of Adam, which was the son of God. (Luke 3: 34-38, King James Version, KJV)

Faez”, among mature Christian believers, where birth of a living child is to be understood as a sacred event (we also say, miracle) there must be (1) acknowledgment of divine authority, dominion, ownership of all that exists, and the operations of sovereign will; (2) there must be a clear fulfillment of eternal purpose that has been proclaimed and prophesied as an element of full divine revelation; and (3) there must be the realization that divine fullness (we say, the Godhead; the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit) is diffuse active presence who can not be completely and correctly spoken of using the frameworks of carnal reason, logic, material objects, social relationships, time, and space. While Adam was fashioned from preexisting matter (i.e., soil from the earth) his life essence (we also say, breath; spirit; word) was imparted from the makeup of divinity. So to speak, it was this divine DNA, that made Adam a “living soul,” and allows him to be accounted as the first “offspring” of GOD. Because of the operations of sin, the children of Adam can not receive an inheritance of that first spirit endowment from GOD without multiple divine interventions and sacred events that include the appearance of the Word in flesh as Jesus Christ (we say, Incarnation). In the same way, mankind is to acknowledge through faith that the Creation has been accomplished through divine persons, process and substance, the birth of Jesus through a virgin is a matter of sacred knowledge, not secular knowledge, politics, science, or technology. Christian believers are to agree that divinity now is transforming mankind through operations of imparted, indwelling Spirit to exist as immortal and incorruptible. Included are faith, holiness, longsuffering, lovingkindness, oneness without sameness, personhood, righteousness, wisdom, and wrath against sin. By his ministry in the earth and from the heaven, Jesus has provided the new creation whereby the living may receive the sacred inheritance restored. Consider the following that uses language from the Bible:

1. Luke 1: 35-37, King James Version (KJV): 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. 36 And, behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. 37 For with God nothing shall be impossible.

2. Hebrews 1: 1-6, KJV: 1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high: 4 Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

3. Acts 1: 4-9, KJV: 4 And, being assembled together with them, commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me. 5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. 6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? 7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. 8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. 9 And when he had spoken these things, while they beheld, he was taken up; and a cloud received him out of their sight.

There is far more that should be said, correctly examined, and spiritually apprehended. (For example, 4. Romans 8: 5-9, KJV: 5 For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh; but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. 6 For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace. 7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be. 8 So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. 9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.) Even so, I trust this fragment will be useful. Be it unto you according to your faith.
