Antichrist and the Virgin Birth
“Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist...” - (I Jn.4:2,3).
Here God warns us to beware of false Christs (antichrists) and false prophets and false teachers. The objective way to identify them is that they deny the incarnation, the virgin birth of Christ. This is where it all begins - in Bethlehem. The Lord Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem, and it begins there with His incarnation. Calvary and His resurrection are meaningless unless He is who He claimed to be, unless He is the Godman. “...God was manifest in the flesh...” - (I Tim.3:16). God was His Father and Mary was His human mother. He was both the Son of God and the Son of man, the redeemer and mediator between God and sinful man. And Antichrist will be exposed by his denial of Christ’s virgin birth.
But how can the one who “was God” (Jn.1:2) from the beginning, be the same one who “was made flesh, and dwelt among us” - (Jn.1:1,14)? How can He truly be “Emmanuel, which being interpreted, God with us” - (Mt.1:23)? The very purpose of the incarnation was that God would become the Savior of men as well as their Creator, but this required that in His humanity He must be “holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners (Heb.7:26), a sinless redeemer - “But with the precious blood of Christ, as a Lamb without blemish and without spot” - (I Pet.1:19).
It is not surprising, therefore, that the doctrine of the Virgin Birth of Christ, has always been the test between true Christians, and either non-Christians or pseudo-Christians, and Antichrist will be a pseudo-Christian. Without such a miraculous birth, there could have been no true incarnation and therefore no salvation. The man Jesus would have been a sinner by birth and thus in need of a Savior himself.
The real miracle was not the birth of Christ, but His supernatural conception. The birth of Christ was natural in every way, including the full nine months of human gestation in the womb of Mary. In all points, He was made like His brethren, experiencing every aspect of human life from conception through birth and growth to death. He was a true man in every detail, except He was sinless and a miracle worker, and His greatest miracle was raising Himself from death.
The miracle was not His birth, but His conception - “for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost” - (Mt.1:20). “Behold, a Virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us” - (Mt.1:23). The mystery is in Christ’s conception. Conception is normally the result of the union of two germ cells, the egg from the mother and the seed from the father, each carrying half the inheritance and each sharing equally in the transmission of the sin-nature. Each individual gets exactly half of his chromosomes and half of his genes from his mother, and half from his father. The offspring may resemble one parent more than the other, but the two parents make equal contributions to its inheritance. Each parent makes an equal contribution of defective physical and mental characteristics due to inherited mutations. Both mental and physical traits are inherited in this way.
Our Father prepared the body of His Son - “wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith, sacrifice and offering thou wouldest not, but a body hast thou prepared me” - (Heb.10:5). This mighty miracle of a virgin giving birth to the Son of God, is the greatest of all creations. God prepared the body in which His beloved Son would take up His earthly abode. Miraculously created and conceived, then virgin-born, God’s eternal Son became the perfect, sinless Son of man and God’s perfect, supreme sacrifice on the cross for sin. Known only to the omniscient, all-knowing God, is how He performed this. This precious seed of God could ‘not’ have united with the sinful egg of Mary and so God did it some other way in order for Christ to be born without man’s sin nature and still be the “seed of the woman” - (Gen.3:15).
Christ would still be “made of the seed of David according to the flesh” - (Rom.1:3), because His body was nurtured and born of Mary, who was herself of the seed of David. He would still be the Son of man, sharing all universal human experience from conception to death, except sin. His body could have been formed neither of the seed of man or the egg of the woman, but grown from a unique seed planted in Mary’s body by God himself. “Then said Mary unto the angel, how shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 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 the shall be called the Son of God” - (Lk.1:34,35).
It has been 2000 years since the Virgin Birth of God’s Son, and the time is near for the arrival of Antichrist and now man is creating a virgin birth. (Not The Virgin Birth of God’s Son, but ‘a virgin birth’). Scientists reject the knowledge and wisdom of God in the Bible and continue to eat from the tree of worldly knowledge and now they are claiming a virgin birth. The definition of virgin birth from the medical dictionary is – “Virgin birth - surrogacy. A popular term for a child born out of wedlock through artificial reproduction.” Man is playing God today which is what Satan deceived Eve with “...ye shall be as gods...” - (Gen.3:5).
Sperm cells have been created by scientists from human egg cells that they believe can be transplanted in humans. The cells are created by a process known as “parthenogenesis,” a word that means “virgin beginning.” it involves chemically tricking an egg into developing without being fertilized by sperm.
One woman just gave birth to eight babies by artificial insemination and embryo transplants. She had six prior children born the same way, for a total of fourteen. She has no job and no husband and doesn’t want one and the children have no father. Sodomite women living together, have been implanted with embryos conceived artificially, using their eggs and sperm from an unknown man. All three of these woman could very well be virgins and so have ‘virgin births.’ The sperm is artificially introduced into the egg without actual copulation. Unsaved man will not believe God’s Word about the virgin birth of His Son, but they very readily believe man’s word about the so-called virgin births being performed today by doctors. I think also about the evil Dr. Mengele and the other evil doctors under the Antichrist Hitler, and their hideous experiments on the Jews in the death camps. Mengele’s experiments were for his knowledge of babies, especially twins, triplets etc. Yes, the Antichrist, and all the other unsaved people who reject Christ, do not believe in the virgin birth of Christ. They do not believe that Christ has come in the flesh, and so they worship Antichrist instead.
There is yet another ‘body of Christ’ of which all born again believers become members, now in process of formation, with Christ as the head - (Eph.4:15,16). This body also is being supernaturally formed by the Holy Spirit - (I Cor.12:13) with no genetic inheritance from sinful flesh. It’s members are - “born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God” - (Jn.1:13). So that when complete it wwill also be a body “not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing: but that it should be holy and without blemish” - (Eph.5:27). Like Christ.
Here is another mighty act of special creation, repeated again and again whenever a new member is born again into Christ’s body, when a new child of God is born. “But as many as received Him to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name” - (Jn.1:12). “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; all things are become new” - (2 Cor.5:17).
These have “put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness” - (Eph.4:24). “Ye have put off the old man with his deeds; and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of Him that created him” - (Col.3:10)). We have been born of the same incorruptible Holy Ghost seed that Christ was born by and makes us a child of God the Father and we cry out - Abba-Father. We are a part of the family of God. “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever” - (I Pet.1:23). “Of his own will begat he us with the word of truth...” - (Jam.1;18). God’s Word is like a seed that germinates in you with new life when you believe it. We, as Christ was, are born of the Holy Ghost. The virgin human birth of Christ thus testifies of the marvelous creation of His human body, which then speaks symbolically of the marvelous member-by-member creation of His spiritual body - the Church.
Watch for the Antichrist-President of the U.S. who will also be the president of the world. He will be an apostate, unsaved, professing Christian who does not believe in the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Are you saved and born again? If not, repent of your sins and believe in your heart by faith in Jesus Christ and you will receive forgiveness of sins, and be saved from hell and become a new born again creature in Christ with eternal life. “For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” - (Rom.6:23). Be ready for the rapture and the translation of God’s saints, both the living and the dead, in the twinkling of an eye.
