God¯s exact timing¯
¯¯the exact time the star had appeared. He sent them.¯ [Matt. 2:7b-8a]
Why the genealogy¯why all the begets? ¯familiar question until the names begin to ¯jump out¯. Tamar¯played the harlot¯Ruth the foreigner¯Uriah¯s wife [Bathsheba]¯caught in sexual scandal¯Rehab¯was a harlot. All born and lived according to God¯s exact timing¯the One who knows when a sparrow falls to the ground certainly knows the conception of every child. Proof positive that God doesn¯t just come for sinners He comes through them for His divine purposes¯Each one BORN TO SERVE.
When your eyes are fastened on Christ who you were fades¯who you are is fashioned as God¯s workmanship created to do good works¯an instrument in the hands of the Living and loving God. Each one born to serve¯everyone sent and linked to the Salvation of all men! Each was born to be part of ¯a living legacy¯.
It was the exact time when the star appeared announcing the birth of Christ. Born at the exact time you also are a link¯carrying the presence of God into the world---preparing the way as members of the Body of Christ bringing His glorious revelation into this generation. The Body of Christ the great convocation of humanity saved by Grace¯lives sanctified through the Holy Spirit to become the Holy Bride of Christ. The Bride in unity with the Spirit will speak forth the final invitation with the words, ¯¯let him who hears say, ¯Come!¯ whoever is thirsty, let him come; and whosever wishes, let him take the free gift of the water of life¯ [Revelation 22:17]
