A great sign appeared in Heaven. REV 12:1.

Wednesday, June 26, 2002

a. The historical objective - Satan sought to keep our Lord from being born; and then to kill His humanity before He reached the cross.

b. The prophetical objective - Satan seeks to destroy Israel before the Second Advent, so that the four unconditional covenants to Israel cannot be fulfilled.

1. The Abrahamic Covenant defines the race for client nation Israel. Abraham became a Jew at age 99; circumcision was the sign, GEN 12:1-3; GEN 13:15-16; GEN 15:18; GEN 22:15-18; GEN 26:3-4; EXO 6:2-8.

2. The Palestinian Covenant defines the land for client nation Israel, GEN 15:18; NUM 34:1-12; DEU 30:1-9;JOS 1:3-4.

3. The Davidic Covenant defines the dynasty for client nation Israel, 2SA 7:8-16; PSA 89:20-37.

This is the divine promise to David that he would have a son [the Lord Jesus Christ] who would rule Israel forever.

4. The New Covenant defines the restoration of client nation Israel at the Second Advent and its millennial modus operandi, JER 31:31-34.

This will be fulfilled during the Millennium and the eternal state, ISA 61:2-11; ISA 59:20-21, ROM 11:26-27.

The New Covenant to Israel is an eternal covenant, EZE 16:60.

Sign - semeion = ceremonially or supernaturally: a miracle, sign, wonder; that by which a person or a thing is distinguished from others and known.

Circumcision was a sign that Abraham would perpetuate the Jewish race.

1CO 1:22 For indeed Jews ask for signs, and Greeks search for wisdom;

JOH 4:48 “Unless you {people} see signs and wonders, you {simply} will not believe.”

Rev 12 - the great sign began with Abraham and circumcision when at age 99 he was sexually dead and God opened up the womb of Sarah.

ISA 7:14 - the second sign = the Messiah would come through a virgin birth.

Adams original sin is the origin of the old sin nature in the human race, ROM 5:12.

The old sin nature is transmitted through the twenty-three male chromosomes which fertilize the female ovum in copulation.

Through meiosis and polar body, twenty-three chromosomes are thrown off the female ovum, leaving twenty-three uncontaminated chromosomes in the female ovum prior to fertilization.

Although both the man and the woman in the Garden were equally guilty, the womans sin of ignorance was the reason she became the bearer of the embryo, 1TI 2:13-15.

Since it is only the males twenty-three chromosomes that carry the old sin nature and not the females, if a woman could have a virgin pregnancy, the progeny could be born into the world without an old sin nature.

The first Adam was created perfect; the last Adam, Jesus Christ, was born perfect.

MAT 13:55, MAR 6:3 - Mary also had other children mentioned, so we know she eventually copulated with Joseph.

Mary received at birth the imputation of human life to her soul and the imputation of Adams original sin to her old sin nature; so she was not perfect.

In the case of her Son, Jesus, God the Father imputed human life to His human soul, but divine justice could not impute Adams original sin since there was no target, home, antecedence, or affinity - no genetically-formed old sin nature in Him.

Simultaneously, Adams original sin is imputed to the old sin nature, genetically-formed by the twenty-three male chromosomes.

At the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ, God the Father created human life and imputed it to His human soul.
