Birth of An Eternal King
Luke 1:30-33 (KJB) And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31 And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end.
The angel Gabriel brought stunning news to Mary! He first assured her not to fear his words before he relayed this astounding news to her! The angel told her she had found favor, or grace, with God.
Certainly, Mary’s heart must have skipped a beat at what he revealed.
Not only did he tell her she was with child but what His name was to be and that He would be great. The Son of the Highest, and that He would receive the throne of David.
She was to give birth to a King! An eternal King who would rein forever!
This was no ordinary conception, no ordinary birth, and no ordinary King!
