It is regrettable that some artists have changed the original words "offspring of a virgin's womb" to "offspring of the favored one" which weakens the reference to the Virgin Birth. Why sing a Bible - based song in this way? I enjoyed singing Hark the Herald Angels Sing. First time using the words, then I enjoyed playing background music while singing the carol. I look forward to sharing this with my friends. Thank you so much! The word Sun in verse 3 is a quote from Malachi "But unto you who fear My name, will the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in His wings The word "Sun" is meant to convey the healing power of Christ in His shining as the light of life John and the life that is the light of men John Although many Christians see that Satan damages man, few realize that through Adam's fall Satan injected himself into man and has been installed in man's fallen body as the law of sin and of death. Christ as the Son of God destroyed the works of the devil not only by condemning sin in the flesh but also by imparting Himself into the believers as the law of the Spirit of life.
Veiled in Flesh, the Godhead See

Jim Devotional and Bible 1. It simply means the act of being made flesh — specifically referring to the Son of God, who became human. But first, who is this Person who becomes incarnate? Wesley writes:. Christ — the Messiah — a title referring to the One who was long predicted throughout history. The one chosen by God to come and save us. Connecting us with the first stanza, He is worshipped by the host of Heaven. He is worshipped by angels those who warn us to worship only God Revelation He is the everlasting Lord see Isaiah and this look at the prophecy.
At around noon on May 30, , my eighth-grade classmates and I stood in a field near our high school to witness an annular solar eclipse. For a few moments, while the moon passed in front of the sun, it appeared as if the sun were completely blacked out. You might go blind! So instead of watching the eclipse directly, we watched it indirectly, through pinhole projectors made from shoeboxes. After all, if someone tells you not to think of pink elephants, what do you think of? In Genesis 32, for example, Jacob is grateful to be alive after he realizes that he had been wrestling all night with God. Otherwise, God tells him, the experience would kill him. For I am a man of unclean lips, and I live among a people of unclean lips! Something changed, however, when Jesus came.
But is that the case? No matter what your perspective is on the exegesis of that passage there is nothing to suggest that the taking on of human flesh is what caused this. Certainly Wesley knew better to associate incarnation with sin, but maybe it was natural to associate it with veiling.
