"Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. 2 Corinthians 7:1 ... dearly beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God."

Genesis 3:15 says:
Genesis 3:15 says: "
Hebrews 10 says: "5) Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me: 6) In burnt offerings and sacrifices for sin thou hast had no pleasure. 7) Then said I, Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,) to do thy will, O God." God the Father created a body of a human child, in the womb of the virgin, for God the Word to come into the Earth as a man. This fulfilled the prophecy decreeing that the seed of the woman would bruise the head of the serpent.
Luke 1:35 says: "And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee:" Matthew 1 says: "19) Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, Ö 20)... 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. 21) And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS:" It is vitally important that we know and understand the truth of the wholesome word of God. But, some intentionally misinterpret these verses to mean that God had sex with Mary to produce a baby, so God is the father and Mary is the mother of the baby Jesus. Nothing could be further from the truth, as is clearly evident in the scriptural text. Scripture clearly states that Mary would remain a virgin until Jesus was born. This precludes the assertion that God had sex with the virgin Mary (or placed his seed in her), and so Jesus of Nazareth was the begotten son of God the Father, by the birth of Jesus.
This act of conception was far more than simply making Mary pregnant. This was the act whereby God created a body for the baby (Hebrews 10:5) in the womb of Mary. Until this act of creation as well as conception, 'God the Word' remained in his position of omni-powers in the Spirit body of God (John 4:24: 'God is a Spirit:'). Upon conception, God the Word left the Spirit body of God and entered the fleshly body of the baby created in the womb of Mary. At this point in time, God the Word, who had been a Spirit, became a man, who was flesh. John 1:14 says: "And the Word was made flesh,..." That is, God became a man. That is to say, God the Word became human as a baby in the womb of the virgin Mary. These links explains the trinity, or three in One God: "Lesson", "Video".
"Matthew 1:18 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." By the above verse, without considering the wholesome word of God, Christians think that Mary was the mother and the Holy Ghost was the father of Jesus, which will qualify him as the begotten Son of God. "Luke 1:34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 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." This verse also seems to say that both God the Most High and God the Holy Ghost have jointly became the father while Mary being the mother. But there are three important points to consider. (1). If God has come upon Mary to father the baby, then Mary was no more a virgin and Jesus was not born of a virgin. "Matthew 1:22 Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, 23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son..." So, if Mary was still a virgin until the birth of Jesus, then God was not the father of Jesus by his birth. (2). Even though the Bible addresses God in masculine gender, God is neither male nor female. Further God is a Spirit and he does not carry human seed (sperm) to implant in the womb of Mary to make her pregnant. So, God did not beget a child as a man beget a child through a woman. So, God was not the father of Jesus through his birth. (3). Theologians say that Jesus of Nazareth was the very essence or substance came out from the body of God. But, it was neither essence nor substance from God, but 'God the Word' himself was another person, as 'God the Father' and 'the Holy Ghost'. So, God was not the father of the child of Mary.
The God of the Bible is the only true God. Mark 12:32 --- Master, thou hast said the truth: for there is one God; and there is none other but he. God is one Spirit. Godís Spirit is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent. His Spirit identifies him as God as our bodies identify us as men. A human body has one soul whereas God has more than one soul within his Spirit. The Souls (persons) inside the Spirit of God are the most high God (the Father), the Word (the Son) and the Holy Ghost. (You may refer more scriptures by a click on this link: "Trinity"). John 1:14 says, ".. the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us." In order to become flesh, that is to become a man, the soul of 'God the Word' stepped aside from the omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent Spirit of God and entered in the human body that is created in the womb of Virgin Mary. How did it happen? 'God the Most High' and 'the Spirit of God' came upon Mary, and created a body in her womb so that the Soul of 'God the Word' could enter into the body in the womb of Mary and be born as a baby boy, which is flesh, man Jesus. "Hebrews 10:5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:" So, 'God the Word' (His Soul) entered the body that God has prepared for him, and he became flesh. God was made a baby. You may study the details in this link: 'Man Jesus'. Man Jesus was the seed of the virgin, that is, he was the son of Mary alone, without a father, not even God as the father. God was the creator of his body, but God did not father the baby. Christians think that he was born to God and Mary, since God came upon her and Mary got pregnant. It is ignorant to think that way. Just the body (with no soul), was created from the womb of Mary, so that the body became the seed of the women (only one of its kind). So, God was not the Father to the baby by birth, Mary alone was the mother as well as the father. God was the creator of the body, but not the soul. The soul of God the Word moved in from God to the flesh. The Word was made flesh.
In reality, 'God the Most High' and 'God the Holy Ghost' have created a body in the womb of the virgin Mary, from the substance of her own body, so that it may be the seed of the woman. "Genesis 3:15 I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." So, the baby was the seed of Virgin Mary. So, Virgin Mary is the father as well as the mother of Baby Jesus. 1. God created Adam from the dust of the ground. 2. God took one of the ribs of man and created Eve. 3. God created the seed, which was the body of Jesus, from the flesh of Virgin Mary and put it in her womb. "Hebrews 10:5 Wherefore when he (Jesus Christ) cometh into the world, he saith, Sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me:" These three times God has created man or woman. The third time was the body of Jesus, God called it as last Adam (1 Corinthians 15:45) to indicate that it is the last and God will not create a man anymore. God created the body, and the Soul of 'God the Word' left the Omni-Power Spirit Body of God and entered the flesh body in the womb of Virgin Mary to be born as Baby Jesus. It is described as 'the Word' was made flesh ("John 1:14 the Word was made flesh,..."). The miracle of the virgin birth was that Mary was the only woman in the whole world, that her female body has produced a seed (God has created it) and gave it to herself to be conceived, whereas every other woman has to receive seed from a man to conceive. So, Jesus was the son of Virgin Mary alone, but of no man, not even God. But, God involved himself as the creator of the body of Jesus, and 'God the Word' (Soul) entered the flesh body and Mary brought forth a son. Common people call this as, a child is born. But, those who understand the truth of God will say, God became a man, which is "the Word was made flesh." So, Jesus Christ was not the begotten Son of God, when he was born. He was declared as the begotten Son at his resurrection from the dead, but not when he was born.
I will reply promptly.Thanks.
