I am adding myself into this scripture. It is personal.
For In HIM we (I) LIVE and (I) MOVE, and (I) HAVE our (MY) BEING! As some of your own poets have said, " WE ARE (I am) HIS OFFSPRING."
HE, JESUS, IS THE KING OF GLORY!
HE came down from the Father.
From Heaven to Earth.
Jesus was carried in an earthen vessel, for the usual nine months, until the time of HIS birth. HE was born of a virgin, Mary.
She wrapped HIM in swaddling cloths and laid HIM in the manger. She loved, held and kissed her firstborn son, the precious LAMB OF GOD.
Mary knew and kept all these things and pondered them in her heart...
THE SON OF GOD, was raised and lived as a carpenter's son.
He grew. He was strong in the Spirit, HE was filled with wisdom: and the grace of GOD was upon HIM.
Even at the age of twelve in the temple, HE astounded men with HIS understanding and answers. When HIS earthly parents found HIM, HE replied, "Do you not understand, I AM about MY FATHER'S BUSINESS."
HE was on a mission, to fulfill THE FATHER'S COMMISSION.
HE WALKED AND TALKED WITH MAN.
HE did many miracles.
THE RELIGIOUS CROWD HATED JESUS THEN, and THE RELIGIOUS CROWD STILL HATES HIM TODAY!
Because, men still love darkness rather than light.
Men do not want to be called out or exposed for their lies and hypocrisy, and don't you dare tell them they are wrong or try to correct them with GODS WORD. Like Jesus, calling their sin -sin, or their evil actions, evil! DON'T YOU DARE EXPOSE THEM, BY THREATENING THEIR PRESTIGE OR THEIR SECURITY OF INCOME. This is what Jesus did! They thought HE was going to tear their playhouse down. They thought HE would RUIN everything they had built. CAN YOU SEE IT? This pattern remains in our world today.
