LUKE 1:26-38

Pastor Rick Jackson

The virgin birth of Christ is no myth. Nor is it an unnecessary event concocted to make a simple story spectacular. No, the virgin birth of the Lord Jesus Christ is an absolute unequivocal necessity. There are at least 6 reasons this is true.

I. Christ was Virgin Born so He would NOT have a Sin Nature [Ps. 51:5, Lk. 1:35]

Psalm 51:5 Behold, I was shapen in iniquity; and in sin did my mother conceive me.
Luke 1:35 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.

II. Christ was Virgin Born so He would be Human as well as Divine in His Nature [Phil. 2:5-8]

III. Christ was Virgin Born so He would Fulfill Scripture [Mt. 1:18-23, Is. 7:14]

IV. Christ was Virgin Born so He could Serve as Mediator [I Tm. 2:5]

For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus;

V. Christ was Virgin Born so He could make an Adequate Payment for Sin [I Jn. 2:1-2]

My little children, these things write I unto you, that ye sin not. And if any man sin, we have an advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous: And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.

VI. Christ was Virgin Born so He could Face Temptations as Other Men [Heb. 2:18, 4:15]

Hebrews 2:18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them
that are tempted.
Hebrews 4:15 For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
