The God of the impossible

Mary--and the Birth of Jesus: You probably know the story well--the angelic visitation in Luke's gospel.  Gabriel visits young Mary and tells her that she will become the mother of the Messiah.  Mary is confused in that she is not married--only engaged to Joseph.  Gabriel explains that the child to be born (the Messiah) will not be conceived in the normal biological way--but will be supernaturally implanted in her womb.  Gabriel's explanation of the miracle?  "Nothing is impossible with God (Luke 1:37)." Who on earth can be saved?

Amen!” EVERYONE will actually see Jesus:  humanists, atheists, modernist, backslidden, unbelievers—everyone. There is a choice today.  # 1.  You can see Him—with eyes of faith— as Saviour, Healer, Sanctifier, Baptizer and Soon Coming King # 2.  You can wait—refuse to obey—and see Him later as King of Kings, Judging all who stand before Him: Revelation 20:11-15 “11 And I saw a great white throne, and I saw the one who was sitting on it.
