I still can’t believe what you just said. Are you trying to say all through your University days(University of Galilee) you never had sex with anyone? Trust me; this is the biggest lie of the century. I haven’t heard that before in my life. Young lady, wake up; you are simply astonishing and every man would like to have you to himself. C’mon; every lady in our department kept talking about your beauty and the way God crafted you. Woah!!! I’m pretty sure God had to spend extra hours in the room while He was moulding you into this perfect figure. Mary smiled and I said, well; Glory to God in the Highest for moulding me this way. I’m keeping myself for my future husband and all I want is God to smile at me on my wedding night.
In fact; Deborah, while I was studying my Bible I came across a part I would love to share…
1Corinthians3vs16: Know ye not that ye are the temple of God, and that the Spirit of God dwelleth in you?
Deborah looked at Mary in amazement and said wasn’t God the person that placed feelings in us? I mean there are times when you just feel like having a man around you to make you feel loved. Mary replied her saying; well, it isn’t bad to have a man around you but always ensure you restrain your heart from wandering around to the point you engage yourself in things that only couples do. We have to guard our hearts with all diligence. And you know God resides in us and we are to please Him daily. As a matter of fact I remember just before we graduated from the University people asked me how I kept myself as a virgin considering the beauty God placed on me and I can vividly remember my response to that question. I had to take them to the Book of Proverbs.
Proverbs4vs20: My son, attend to my words; incline thine ear unto my sayings. 4vs21: Let them not depart from thine eyes; keep them in the midst of thine heart.
4vs22: For they are life unto those that find them, and health to all their flesh. 4:23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
Jessica; my replies were drawn out from here and I’m glad I made people realise scripture says… #KeepThyHeartWithAllDiligenceForOutOfItAreTheIssuesOfLife. And today, By the Grace of God; I can boldly say #IAmAVirgin.
Mary told her friend that regardless of whatever you have done before God is set to change your status and make you new again. They both prayed and Mary’s friend departed from her.
Immediately; her friend left the house Mary’s mother called that they had a fellowship to attend and the interesting aspect is they heard a Man of God will be coming to Minister at the gathering. Mary, guess what? I was told he’s coming from the City of Galilee.
Mary jumped up in excitement and prepared for the fellowship. As she arrived the fellowship with her mother they both felt the presence of God mighty and Mary said God is indeed here. Not quite long, the resident Pastor invited the Guest Minister to the Altar. As the Guest Minister held the microphone the Power of God moved again and it a glorious time in the Presence of God.
Exodus40vs34:Then a cloud covered the tent of the congregation, and the glory of the LORD filled the tabernacle.
As the fellowship ended everyone went to meet the Pastor and the Guest Minister to thank them for allowing God use them mightily in Ministry. Mary and her mom also went to greet them and immediately the Guest Minister introduced himself to Mary saying #MyNameIsJosephAndIHopeYouHadAGreatTimeInThePresenceofGod. For the first time ever Mary felt a connection when Joseph shook her hand.
Mary was thrilled and she called the attention of her mom and said Mom; this Guest Minister is
Mary’s mom replied, Is someone in love? Mary replied; mom, when did it become a crime to admire a Man of God? Her mom smiled and said just tell me the sincere truth and that would save you this agitation. Not too long after Mary and her mom returned home Mary began to think of Joseph.
I haven’t seen a Man of God full of vibrancy and moreso, full of humour and to crown it all very #spiritual.
Some months later; Mary got a telephone call and she discovered it was from #BroJoseph.
Hello dear; as I was praying your name dropped in my heart and perceived that God has something for us but it isn’t really clear. Mary became so excited and she said; of a truth, I know God will reveal all that needs to be clear to you in no time. Immediately they ended their conversation Mary #ScreamedAloud ‘His voice is super-pleasant’ and I pray I hear this for the rest of my life. Mary ran to her Mom and told her all that happening and it got her mom smiling and she replied soon something would happen very soon between you two.
Eighteen months later, Bro. Joseph officially asked for Mary’s hand in marriage and without a second thought Mary replied #IWillLoveToSpendTheRestofMyLifeWithYou
Joseph was really grateful to God and they both made plans to have a small wedding.
On the 7th day of the month of September everyone was really excited as they went to the Temple for the marriage of Mary and Joseph. The Priest asked Joseph if he was willing to take Mary as his beloved wife to love and to cherish in sickness and in health, To love and To hold; he said “YES I DO”, he asked same from Mary and she said “YES I DO”. Then the Priest said “You May Now Kiss The Bride” Joseph gently took the veil off Mary’s face and gave her a long kiss. She was really excited and she said I will always love you darling. They went to reception and danced for an hour before leaving for their honeymoon. Joseph said; “Sweetheart, You mean so much to me and I will love you forever”.
Six months into their being engaged something miraculous happened which got Mary flabbergasted.
Luke1vs26:And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth,
Vs27: To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary.
Angel Gabriel told Mary that she will get pregnant and bore a child and his name shall be called #JESUS. Mary exclaimed; really!!! How can this be when my ‘sweetheart’ has not even uncovered me? Angel Gabriel told her not to worry that…
Luke1vs35: 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.
Nine months later, Mary shouted aloud; I can feel it. Yes!!! Our baby is about to come forth. Joseph; please, take me to a room. Immediately they got to the room the midwives assisted her to lie in bed and she was told to push. Mary succeded in pushing and to her amazement #HerMaleChildCameForth and he was placed in a #merger.
Isaiah9vs6:For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
Thanks so much for reading ‘The Birth’.
