John the Baptist paved the way
for Jesus our Lord to save the day;
in Genesis 3, verse 15
God said to Satan,
“I will cause hostility
between you and the woman;
between your offspring and hers;
the Seed of woman
will crush your head,
and seed of the serpent
will bruise his heel."
The pattern of faith
that God shows to us
provides abundantly more,
and more than enough;
and even though paradise was lost
God has a plan
to restore his creation,
through the divinity
of his faith pattern.
Jesus Christ was born to a virgin,
from the line of King David who was a faithful king;
and David was born from the seed of Abraham;
the man of faith who walked out of Babylon.
God‘s Holy Spirit descended upon Mary
and unto us a child was born;
upon his shoulder
the government sits,
his name is called Wonderful Counselor,
and Prince of Peace.
And in His government,
Peace will not end;
there will be no end
upon the throne of David;
He rules and reigns over His Kingdom
and orders it with His justice and judgment.
The angel Gabriel Jesus's coming,
just as he did to the prophet Daniel;
Gabriel went directly to Mary
and called her a woman who is highly favored.
The angel explained that she would conceive a son,
and He would be known as the Son of God.
Gabriel told her not to be afraid
for the Spirit of God would be upon her;
then he told her that her relative,
Elizabeth was pregnant,
and is no longer fertilely barren.
Gabriel said Elizabeth had conceived a son,
and is now with child,
six month pregnant.
A few days later, Mary went to Elizabeth
and when she entered the house,
Elizabeth's baby lept at the sound of her voice.
Elizabeth was immediately filled with the Holy Spirit,
And gave a glad cry and exclaimed
“God has blessed you above all woman,
and your child is blessed.
For when I heard your greeting,
the baby in my womb jumped for joy -
you are blessed because you believe
that the Lord would do what He said."
So once again, God's faith pattern is known,
The ancestry of Jesus seems to have the same spiritual DNA,
and it seems to be coded by the gene of faith.
God is faithful because he has kept his promise.
The Seed of the woman has crushed the head of the serpent.
Anyone who has fear of the Lord,
has the wisdom to understand this poetic sermon.
John the Baptist knew from the womb,
exactly what he was born to do.
Repent and make ready the way of the Lord,
for our King is coming back soon!
