8. How was God the Word made flesh ?

"Mark 16:15 preach the gospel to every creature. Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe (do) all things whatsoever I (Jesus Christ) have commanded: Revelation 22:13 I am Alpha and Omega .. 14 Blessed are they that do his commandments, .. they .. have right to the tree of life, and .. enter .. the city."

How was (did) Jesus born? 'God the Father' and 'the Holy Ghost' have created a body in the womb of Virgin Mary (Hebrews 10:5-7, Luke 1:35); the soul, "God the Word," left the Omnipotent Spirit Body, and entered the flesh body in her womb; (Philippians 2:6-7). God did not father the baby, but created a body. This is how, "God the Word" was made 'flesh', (John 1:14).


How did Jesus come to the world, or how did Jesus born? OR, how did Jesus gave birth to himself? There is a difference in the saying that we are born and Jesus did come (to the world) or Jesus did born. Father and mother brought the baby to the world, and the baby did not come by its own, but the baby was just here. That is how, we were born. But, Jesus planned his birth and he came on his own. God the Father and the Holy Ghost helped him, and Mary was used as the vehicle for him to come. Let us see.

We have heard the Christmas story from the Bible many times. 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, 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:" From these verses it is very easy to come to the conclusion that the Holy Ghost is the father of the baby that is in the womb of Mary. But, it is vitally important that we know and understand the truth of the wholesome word of God. But, preachers intentionally misinterpret these verses to mean that God had sex with Mary (they say it in a polite language, but not explicitly) to produce a baby, so God is the father and Mary is the mother of the baby Jesus. But, Jesus Christ, when he was "God the Word", has told God the Father and the Holy Ghost to create a body, so that he may be born as a man in Hebrews 10:5-9, and accordingly the Holy Ghost and God the Father created a body in the womb of Mary. So, they are not fathers, but they were creators and created a body. God the Word (Jesus Christ) left the omni-power Spirit body of God and his soul entered the body in the womb of Mary. Thus God became a man, and Jesus was born. Let me quote Hebrews here. "10:5 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. 8 Above when he said, Sacrifice and offering and burnt offerings and offering for sin thou wouldest not, neither hadst pleasure therein; which are offered by the law; 9 Then said he, Lo, I come to do thy will, O God. He taketh away the first, that he may establish the second. Philippians 2:6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:" So, Jesus Christ came to do the "will" of God the Father to the world as a man. He ceased to be God, and became a man like us.
