What was the purpose of Jesus Christ being sent down to this earth by the Father from above? Let us go to the scriptures once again for the answer to that question:
Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost.
Mary [the Jewish virgin] was found to be pregnant before she and Joseph had normal sexual relations with each other.
Then Joseph her husband, being a just man, and not willing to make her a publick example, was minded to put her away privily.
Joseph was going to put Mary in hiding to avoid any public embarassment because he was a righteous man.
But while he thought on these things, behold, 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.
Joseph was naturally troubled by what was taking place here. What would you do if you saw your wife pregnant and you knew that you had not “come together” with her yet. Joseph was thinking about all of these things, and he obviously fell asleep, when the “angel of the Lord” came to him, and told him that it was alright to take Mary to be his wife. The angel addressed Joseph, as son of David because he was of the lineage of David. The angel told Joseph that the person who was in the womb of Mary, was conceived by the Holy Ghost [Spirit]. The belly of Mary was growing larger, not because of some illicit relationship, but because Mary was chosen by the Lord to bring forth Jesus into the world.
And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.
His name would be JESUS and HE would be the one who would SAVE His people from their sins. JESUS is the only human being who ever walked this earth who was SINLESS, because He did not have that ADAMIC nature that the rest of us have, and that included Mary the mother of JESUS also. You will see that Mary brought forth offerings for Her own purification according to the Jewish Law, and one of those offerings was a SIN offering. [Luke 2:21-24, Leviticus 12:1-8]
Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying,
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.
Once again another wonderful prophecy is fulfilled to the very letter. The prophet Isaiah prophesied hundreds of years earlier that a Jewish virgin would bring forth a person, known as Emmanuel, or GOD WITH US! The prophecies in the Bible are what separates it from every other so called “Holy Book” that is in the world today.
Then Joseph being raised from sleep did as the angel of the Lord had bidden him, and took unto him his wife:
And knew her not till she had brought forth her firstborn son: and he called his name JESUS.
The scriptures tell us that Joseph “knew her [Mary] not” UNTIL she had given birth to this person that we know as JESUS CHRIST. This scripture passage is merely telling us that Joseph did not have normal sexual relations with his wife Mary UNTIL after Jesus had been born. After JESUS was born into this world, Mary and Joseph had a normal sexual relationship just like any other Jewish couple of that day. They also had other children born to them.
THE BOTTOM LINE
There is only one person who was SINLESS and His name is JESUS CHRIST. It was HIM alone who went to the CROSS to atone for the SINS of the world. His BLOOD was not tainted with the SIN that our own blood is tainted with, because He was the very Son of God! The Jewish apostle Paul, found out the hard way, that JESUS CHRIST was the only way of SALVATION, and the words below are from his heart. Remember that Paul was once a Jewish Pharisee, and a severe persecutor and murderer of true Christians.
1 Timothy 1:15
This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save SINNERS; of whom I am chief.
1 Timothy 1:16
Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.
Have YOU ever come to the place where YOU saw YOURSELF in truth? Have YOU ever repented and believed the true Gospel of Jesus Christ? What are YOU waiting for?
