Luke 3:23, “And Jesus himself began to be about thirty years of age, being (as was supposed) the son of Joseph, which was the son of Heli.”
Jesus had no earthly father and most people thought of Jesus as Joseph’s son, which he was not. God was his Jesus’ father. In a similar way, most people thought that my husband’s father was Mr. Cox, but instead his natural biological nonexistent father was Mr. Frizzell.
Jesus said in Matthew 19:4, “Have ye not read, that he which made them at the beginning made them male and female, And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife: and they twain shall be one flesh?”
Before the genders were separated, male and female were in the same body. We reproduced just as Mary produced Jesus. God played the role of father exclusively. Genesis 1:28, “And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it…” This is before the genders were separated – male from the female. Mothers now have someone to help her with her children. Can imagine a mother breast feeding and trying to provide food and shelter for the child alone? This is the reason God created men – to provide for the physical needs of God’s children, his “living souls”. Mothers need a help mate. How many of our men actually fulfill this responsibility? God loves his mothers and children very much – our men had better be there for their family – his salvation depends upon it. (NOTE: the word “family” in this context means the man’s entire family and not just part of his family.) My husband’s father was a man that thought that the part was more important than the whole. He was wrong!) #Save the first family!
