    For He did not take His descent from from the angels, rather from Abraham s line, and thus it was fitting that He should be made like His brethren in all
    Message 1 of 2024 , Feb 9, 2012
      "For He did not take His descent from from the angels, rather from Abraham's line, and thus it was fitting that He should be made like His brethren in all things" (Heb. 2:16-17). And this likeness in all things has as a kind of beginning, or as the inception of the affair, His birth from a woman; His revelation in the flesh, even though in terms of His own nature He is invisible; His abasement in the human condition for the economy of salvation, even though He has the transcendent name; His humbling to manhood, even though He is raised high above the Thrones; and His acceptance of servile limitations, even though He by nature the Lord (Phil. 2:6f). And all this because "The Word was God" (Jn. 1:1)

      CHRIST IS BORN! GLORIFY HIM! The Word was made man, in order that man might be made divine. He displayed Himself through a body, that we might receive
      Message 2024 of 2024 , Jan 8 5:11 PM

        "The Word was made man, in order that man might be made divine. He displayed Himself through a body, that we might receive knowledge of the invisible Father. He endured insult at the hands of men, that we might inherit immortality. In Himself He suffered no injury, being impassable and immortal, and very Word of God. But in His impassability, He was guarding and saving the suffering man, for whose sake He endured this treatment."

        St. Athanasius, On the Incarnation of the Word.


        "But when the fullness of the time had come, God sent forth His Son, born of a woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, that we might receive the adoption as sons."  Galatians 4:4-5


        The Bible reading for the 1st of Tubah, January 9, is:
        1 After these things the Lord appointed seventy others also, and sent them two by two before His face into every city and place where He Himself was about to go. 2 Then He said to them, The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few; therefore pray the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into His harvest. 3 Go your way; behold, I send you out as lambs among wolves. 4 Carry neither money bag, knapsack, nor sandals; and greet no one along the road. 5 But whatever house you enter, first say, `Peace to this house.' 6 And if a son of peace is there, your peace will rest on it; if not, it will return to you. 7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking such things as they give, for the laborer is worthy of his wages. Do not go from house to house. 8 Whatever city you enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you. 9 And heal the sick there, and say to them, `The kingdom of God has come near to you.' 10 But whatever city you enter, and they do not receive you, go out into its streets and say, 11 `The very dust of your city which clings to us we wipe off against you. Nevertheless know this, that the kingdom of God has come near you.' 12 But I say to you that it will be more tolerable in that Day for Sodom than for that city. 13 Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. 14 But it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment than for you. 15 And you, Capernaum, who are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades. 16 He who hears you hears Me, he who rejects you rejects Me, and he who rejects Me rejects Him who sent Me. 17 Then the seventy returned with joy, saying, Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name. 18 And He said to them, I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you. 20 Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven. (Luke 10:1-20)
