PRAY OVER THIS:
“But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons.”
Jesus had to be a man, but had He been a son of Adam, He would have had the sinful nature of Adam. A son of the slave is a slave, and a slave can redeem no other slave. Still, He had to be a man. Kingdom authority was lost by a man and needed to be righteously regained by a man. That is the reason for the Virgin Birth. The baby in Mary’s womb was a man, but He was not a son of Adam. He’s the son of God. He was both as much man as if He were not God at all and as much God as if He were not a man at all.
