MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
1 of 3]
____THE supernatural birth of the Child Jesus was part of the Covenant promise that God was keeping with Abraham. How could a child be born and not
have the Adamic curse upon it? How could a child be born without sin, so that he could stand in the presence of God without guilt or inferiority? That is the miracle of the Incarnation. Physiologists have proven beyond a question that the mother does not impart
her blood to the babe that is formed.
____Let me quote from "The Chemistry of the Blood" by M. R. De Haan, M.D., pages 31 and 32: "It is now definitely known that the
blood which flows in an unborn babe's arteries and veins is not derived from the mother but is produced within the body of the fetus itself only after the introduction of the male sperm. An unfertilized ovum can never develop blood since the female egg does
not by itself contain the elements essential for the production of the blood. It is only after the male element has entered the ovum that blood can develop.... The male element has added life to the egg.... Since there is no life in the egg until the male
sperm units with it, and the life is in the blood, it follows that the male sperm is the source of the blood."
____If a fertile hen's egg is put in an incubator for
several days, tiny veins of blood will form inside; that is not true of an egg that is not fertile. This proves that the blood comes from the sperm of the male. We know that if Jesus had been born of natural generation, fathered by Joseph, He would have had
the blood of fallen man.
____But He was conceived of the Holy Spirit, the life that was imparted to Him was from God. The blood, which was the life of His body, came
from the Most High Who overshadowed Mary. The blood of that Babe was not the blood of a common man. It did not have the taint of Sin. We have come to know that sin is in the blood, and the human blood and the human spirit are in some way united. Jesus had
in Him the blood of God, His Father, just as every child has the blood of his or her father.
Life is in the blood. Lev. 17:11: "For the life
of the flesh is in the blood; and I have given it to you upon the altar to make atonement for your souls; for it is the blood that maketh atonement by reason of the life." (Am. Rev.) Notice in the margin, "For the soul of the flesh is in the blood," again,
"By reason of the life in the blood," or "by reason of the soul in the blood."
____This is a very remarkable statement. The life of the flesh is in the blood. When the
blood is drawn out of the body, death follows. The life of God was imparted in the blood of Jesus; thus Jesus was born without the Adamic nature, or the sin that came through Adam's blood in His conception. Jesus was sinless. You see, it is very evident that
the life that is imparted to a man in the new birth enters his blood stream. A scientist has just discovered that he can tell if a man has Eternal Life by his blood. When we became partakers of the Divine Nature, our spirits are recreated. There is a union
in some way of spirit and blood, how we do not know. Thus our blood stream is cleansed of the sin that has come down through the blood of the human race.
