Miracle Baby

16 12 2011

An unprecedented event changing the entire course of history occurred in the otherwise simple birth of a miracle baby to the young bride of a common tradesman. The birth was in a small Middle Eastern town with little widespread notice. Nothing before or since that birth compares to the impact on the society and culture of the entire planet. Most of humankind even restarted marking time and calendars. Even though it was nearly 4,000 years from creation, the clock restarted at year one in recognition of this miracle baby.

What was so profound about this birth? Contrary to the common view, it was not all about the later life of that child. The miracle was that this child was the Creator of the Universe formed as an infant and submitting to the indignity and complete helplessness and dependence of living in His mother’s womb for His first nine months on planet Earth. It continued to the inglorious transition through the mother’s birth canal to emerge as an even more helpless newborn with no ability to survive without the loving care and nourishment of motherhood and fatherhood. As He grew physically, He learned the carpenter’s trade from His adoptive father who trained the young apprentice to functionality as a man. Adopted children in our day learn that He was adopted, too. In a sense, all we who believe in Him are adopted as well, into the eternal family of our Heavenly Father Yehovah God.

This is the miracle of Christmas. How did God the Father Yehovah manage to transform His eternal Son into that tiny seed placed in the willing young woman’s womb? That, indeed, is the mystery of God becoming man. It is the incarnation, God becoming flesh. We know more about why He did it than how He did it. In this traditional time of year to remember His birth, we should pause and let the real miracle part of His birth sink into to our inner consciousness, the spiritual part of our being. Take a break from the hectic external pace of this over-commercialized season and just say “Thank you, Jesus, I am very glad you came.”      Selah.

This miracle baby was the Son of God, Yeshua ben Yehovah. He came  for us broken and corrupt sinners, to make the Way to the Father. The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is the only God Who is a Father. All other gods are impotent imposters.

May you be blessed and thankful as we celebrate the birth of Jesus, the Messiah during this season and throughout the year.

Who has ascended into heaven, or descended? Who has gathered the wind in His fists? Who has bound the waters in a garment? Who has established all the ends of the earth? What is His name, and what is His Son’s name, If you know? Proverbs 30:4

Kiss the Son, lest He be angry, and you perish in the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him. Psalm 2:12

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14
