Summary: A vivid portrayal of the coming move of God

The Miracle of the Incarnation: A vivid portrayal of the coming move of

God

Text: Luke 1:26-38

Introduction:

Just as the coming move of God was on the horizon before the

incarnation, so it is now. God is about to do something spectacular in

the earth. We must learn lessons from the past and there in lies the

example of the miracle of the Incarnation in Luke 1, because it gives us

insight into what God is looking for in order that He might tear open the

heavens and pour out His Spirit in Revival and Restoration power.

vs. 27 - before this great move of God in the world, He chose a pure,

untainted woman,

who was betrothed to a man, engaged to be married. He is returning for a

glorious

church, without spot or wrinkle, washed in the blood of the Lamb. He is

returning for a

clean, virgin church that is betrothed to Christ. Before His return, He

is birthing revival,

and holiness in His church.

vs. 28 - She was highly favored, and blessed among women.

vs. 29 - We may be troubled when God begins to move in a new way in us,

because

change is taking place, but it is an awesome work of God.

vs. 30 - Know that when God chooses us, that we have found favor with

Him.

vs. 31 - As His holy church, we are to be bringing forth Jesus.

vs. 33 - What He is birthing in us, His church, is a kingdom that has no

end. It’s worth

giving up everything this world has to offer. Even when the world judges

you because

they have no understanding, it’s worth it all because of His kingdom

coming to earth.

vs. 34, 35 - This move of God in us is not something that we can do in

the natural. This is

a holy move of God.

vs. 36, 37 - Spiritual relatives of ours will be supernaturally giving

birth to John the

Baptists - those who will make straight paths, and prepare the way of the

Lord.

# 1 God is looking for "Spiritual Virgins" to use to usher in this

move of God. These spiritual virgins will have these characteristics:

Purity

Matt 5:8

8 Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.

(NKJ)

Ps 24:3-6

3 Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in

His holy place?

4 He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up

his soul to an idol,

nor sworn deceitfully.

5 He shall receive blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from

the God of his

salvation.

6 This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, who seek

Your face. Selah

(NKJ)

Fruit

Gal 5:22-25

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering,

kindness, goodness,

faithfulness,

23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.

24 And those who are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with its

passions and desires.

25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.

(NKJ)

Character

Rom 5:1-5

1 Therefore, having been justified by faith, we have peace with

God through our

Lord Jesus Christ,

2 through whom also we have access by faith into this grace in

which we stand, and

rejoice in hope of the glory of God.

3 And not only that, but we also glory in tribulations, knowing

that tribulation

produces perseverance;

4 and perseverance, character; and character, hope.
