Question concerning the virgin birth of Messiah posited on FB: “Why do some people deny the virgin birth that Mary had [when a] supernatural birth is indisputable with scripture?”
People who deny the virgin birth of Jesus Christ don’t trust the Holy Spirit and His omnipotence in narrating and preserving the word of God down through the history of mankind (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21; Matthew 24:35). People who deny the virgin birth of Messiah fail to understand the significance of Messiah entering Time through the womb of a virgin woman in order to bypass the sin-nature that is transferred genetically through the man, Adam, and every father subsequent to Adam (Romans 5:12-21; 1 Corinthians 15:22).
God the Father prophesied in Genesis 3:15 that there would come One through the seed of the woman who would do battle with Satan and ultimately crush Satan’s head and Satan would bruise His heal…this was fulfilled 4000-years later at the Crucifixion where Messiah Jesus destroyed the works of the Devil i.e. DEATH – HELL – the GRAVE (Genesis 3:21; 1 John 3:8b; Galatians 4:4; Hebrews 2:14).
It is the virgin birth through the power of the Holy Spirit manifesting in the hypostatic union of God and man (Philippians 2:8) that empowered Jesus, in His humanity, to live a perfect, sinless life and fulfill the righteous requirements of the Law of Moses and the Commandments with perfection (Matthew 5:17). It is Messiah’s sinless perfection that allowed Him to become sin for us by shedding His innocent blood for the remission of sin (Matthew 26:28) and then impute His perfection over the life of everyone who believes that Jesus died for their sins and was resurrected from the dead for their justification (Romans 10:9-10; 2 Corinthians 5:21). It is the selfless sacrifice of Jesus Christ that moves the Father to declares those who trust in Jesus as Lord “NOT GUILTY” of sin and impart within the faithful believer the indwelling Holy Spirit as the Seal and Guarantor of relationship with God, forever (Ephesians 1:13-14; John 10:28-30).
If not for the virgin birth of Messiah, all of mankind would remain dead in their sin (John 8:24) and ultimately lose both body and soul in the second death in Hell (Matthew 10:28; Revelation 20:11-15). Faith is KEY to righteousness but Jesus’ innocent blood is essential for atonement for sin. Without atonement, there is no life in the Kingdom as God will not permit our unrepentant sin to enter His Kingdom subsequent to the death of our body in Time (Revelation 21:27)
Finally, it is Messiah’s virgin birth that permitted Him to fulfill the Law that mankind could not fulfill seeing that all of mankind is under the condemnation of sin (Romans 3:23); to violate one jot or tittle of the Law is to violate the whole Law; therefore, the Law only condemns and kills (James 2:10; Romans 3). Those who reject Messiah’s virgin birth reject the central overarching theme of the Scriptures from the Genesis to the Revelation; that is, God entered Time through the womb of a virgin and gave Himself for the redemption of His created beings and in doing so God destroyed the works of the Devil thereby setting apart a people for Himself that would serve Him in His Kingdom in faithfulness and love and relationship forever (Genesis 3:21; Revelation 1:6).
