The Virgin Birth Is A Sign From God

Today, as I awoke from sleep, I marveled at how God purposely stumbles our natural minds.  Again and again, through design, our Father makes sure that His actions don’t make sense to our flesh.

Isaiah says,

“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.”

Isaiah 7:14

When Joseph found out, things didn’t look so good

Of course, in our Christian America, we just accept this as a holy event, ordained by God.  Yet, when it happened, God says,

“Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a public example, was minded to put her away privily.”

Matthew 1:19

Joseph thought Mary had slept around and gotten herself pregnant.  This is what any natural minded man, who found out his future wife was with child, would assume.  Yet, contrary to all logic, God says,

“But while he thought on these things, behold, the angel of the Lord appeared unto him in a dream, saying, Joseph, thou son of David, fear not to take unto thee Mary thy wife: for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost.”

Matthew 1:20

Joseph had a choice to make

At that point, Joseph had a choice, believe what the angel said, or go by what any reasonable man would assume happened.  Upon Joseph’s decision, hung the safety of Mary and her unborn child.  To this day, a billion Muslims will not believe in Jesus because of the virgin birth.  Their natural reasoning keeps them from the kingdom of heaven.

Moreover, God tells us, through every preacher since Peter, that a man who died upon a cross is the one who will save our souls.  Jesus, who is the son of God, rose from the dead and ascended on high to sit at the right hand of YHWH.  Now, YHWH requires us to believe Christ will grant eternal life to anyone who repents of their sin.

Peter says,

Wherefore also it is contained in the scripture, Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious: and he that believeth on him shall not be confounded.  Unto you therefore which believe he is precious: but unto them which be disobedient, the stone which the builders disallowed, the same is made the head of the corner,”

I Peter 6,7

God asked Jesus to die on the cross on purpose to stumble those who would not simply believe.

No one can accept Tabernacles, except by faith

Likewise, in a much smaller way, God has purposed to bring forth Tabernacles from places like Community Chapel & Bible Training Center.   God chooses the virgin birth and the cross to purposely stumble natural minded people.

God does this yet again, through spiritual connections, to make sure that no one can come to Him, except through faith.  Anyone who listens to and believes the evil report will, like the 10 spies never see the promised land again.  Only those who believe that we are well able do what God says will actually possess it.

Choosing to listen to God’s voice

I remember the day God separated me out,  I remember the exact place He did it, and I remember what He said specifically for me to do.  At that point, had I listened to my natural mind, to my Bible College training, I would have said no.  However, I had made a commitment to follow the Holy Spirit no matter what, therefore like Joseph, I believed.

The physical manifestations of Divine Love through Spiritual Connections is designed to stumble the natural minded man and woman.   The kissing, caressing, and freedom of physical expression (as God’s leads), ensures we must accept God’s expression of  divine Love by faith.  Like the virgin birth and the cross of Calvary, we must believe in order to receive.

God does not bother to explain Himself to the natural man

Moreover, God does not bother to explain the virgin birth or the cross in any great detail when they take place.  YHWH doesn’t explain the “why” to those who rely upon the worlds wisdom.  Our Father simply does it, states what takes place, and leaves it at that.  People, who insist that God conform to their “reason” miss out on eternal life.  The cost of being “reasonable” according to this world is death. Likewise, people who cannot accept the blessing of God’s Divine Love will likewise miss out on that blessing too.

We live at the end of the gentile church age.  The Antichrist spirit is about to manifest fully in that man of sin.  Accepting or rejecting God’s Divine Love is, in fact, a choice whether to become the Elect or follow after the Beast.  Being Spirit led in a time of Strong Delusion is not optional.  Feeling God’s love in a very real way is absolutely vital if you are to remain strong during the coming persecution.  God manifest in our flesh is what allows us to face the Antichrist and overcome the False Prophet.  Only God in us, the hope of glory, make us stand strong against the Dragon.

Divine Love is a sign from God

Therefore, and in conclusion, the origins of Tabernacles and its sign, which is Divine Love  is exactly in line with how God does things.  God purposely makes sign of Tabernacles a stone of stumbling and a rock of offence.  Only those, who by faith, accept the expression of God’s Divine Love, will overcome and actually possess the promise of our Heavenly Lover.
