GET TOGETHER- Make It A Supernatural Christmas
Isa 7:14 “Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Lu 1:34 ,35Then Mary said to the angel, “How can this be, since I do not know a man?” And the angel answered and said to her, “The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Highest will overshadow you; therefore, also, that Holy One who is to be born will be called the Son of God.
I believe that if most people admitted it they really do have a desire for the supernatural. If not, I don’t believe that there would be so many books, so many shows on television, and movies that are from the dark side. To be honest their origin is straight from the pits of Hell.
I really do believe that the Lord designed us to desire the supernatural so that we could experience intimate fellowship with Him through the Holy Spirit. And I don’t believe that there is any limit to what God can do in and through the believer in Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit.
The Virgin Birth is one of the most fundamental Christian beliefs. We may differ on some things in the Body of Christ that are non-essential, but this one is a big time essential. In other words, if one doesn’t believe in the Virgin Birth one is not a Christian.
This time of the year many Christians are celebrating something wonderful that happened over two thousand years ago. A young girl that had never been intimate with a man became pregnant. There was no sexual act that took place. The Holy Spirit just came upon her and she became pregnant. The Incarnate Christ was conceived in her womb by the Holy Spirit. It was totally supernatural the conception, and birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
One of my favorite passages in the Bible is the passage when the angel Gabriel announces to Mary that she will give birth to the Holy One. He tells her in Lu 1:37 “For with God nothing will be impossible.” When I first became a Christian, this was and has always been one of my life passages. I used to say this “that according to Luke 1:37 there is nothing that is impossible to come from Heaven.”
God is still doing the impossible today. He changes gross die-hard sinners into people who love Him and love others. He still heals the sick today. He still sets captives free today. He delivers people from addictions and sinful lifestyles.
Are you curious about the supernatural? There is a reason. God wants you to know that through the Holy Spirit you can experience the supernatural. The same Holy Spirit that came upon Mary and conceived our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The same Holy Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead wants to do supernatural things in you, through you, and for you.
This is how Mary responded when she had her supernatural encounter and was given her assignment in the Kingdom. Lu 1:38 Then Mary said, “Behold the maidservant of the Lord! Let it be to me according to your word.” And the angel departed from her. May it be our response as well. Lord let it be to us according to your word. When we do we will walk in the Holy Spirit and never have to dabble in the dark side again. God wants to use us to do great and mighty things.
Let Us Pray
Lord Jesus we thank you for the Virgin Birth. We thank You for sending the Holy Spirit for those of us who believe to walk in and experience your supernatural presence. Help us to walk faithfully and to see those great and mighty things come forth.
In Jesus Name
