Matthew chapter 1 and 2, talks about the birth of Jesus. God had said to satan in Genesis 3 : 15, " I will put emnity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her Seed." God designed the female for that day. When a child is in the womb, the blood of the mother never mixes with the baby. This is what blood line means. Why the visible realm is so focused on the father of the baby. Mary the mother of Jesus was a virgin. This is crucial. Jesus, the visible part was born through Mary. The Christ was born of God. Jesus Christ was two parts as we are two parts. The differance is His blood was the blood of God. His DNA was the actual DNA of God. It is this blood that cleanes all the sin in the world. This also made Jesus Christ a King. His blood is direct from God Himself, King of everything visible and invisible. This is Gods brilliant back up plan.
In Matthew chapter 3 we learn of John the Baptist and in verse 2 he declares, "Repent for the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand." In verse 13 Jesus went to John to be baptized. Understand Adam failed to teach us the way to live in the visible realm. He actually gave up our Kingdom rights to satan. Jesus was sent to reclaim this Kindom and teach us how to live in the visible realm, so when our time is up our inheritance will be secure. The first thing Jesus did was get baptized. He certainly did not have to for His blood was pure, but came to the visible realm to demonstrate exactly how a human being must live, and actions one must take to inherit the Kingdom of God. Everyone on earth must get baptized by water. It says in Matthew 3;16, " The Spirit of God descended like a dove and alighted upon Him." This is the Holy Spirit. When we accept Jesus as our personal Lord and Saviour, we receive the same Holy Spirit. This is a super natural event. This has everything to do with our spirit man and the invisible realm. This is the first thing Jesus did and what we must do. Jesus is the pattern for us to follow ,to live a life with purpose and meaning in this visible realm.
Once baptized, Jesus was led by the Holy Spirit into the wilderness. In Matthew 4:1-11 we see what happened during those 40 days. The Holy Spirit told Him to fast. Fasting is the best way to overcome the flesh. If you want to stop drinking, drugs, sex addictions , swearing, anger, fast for 40 days. Stop doing whatever it is that is a problem. All addictions are of the visible realm, the flesh. We will discuss this in datail in further discussions, but understand, Jesus is showing us once we get baptized, we must learn to manage our flesh to succeed in the visible realm. During this time satan tested Jesus with His five senses, ego and power. It is the exact same tactics satan uses today. Jesus passed the tests and in verse 11, God sent His angels to take Him from the wilderness and minister to Him. It is at this point Jesus actually became a King in the visible realm. When a king had a son, the son had to go through a learning process and pass the tests before he would be recognized as a son of the king, heir to the throne. It was no different with Jesus and certainly no different with us. For us to receive the inheritance promised in Matthew 25:34, we must also learn to manage and overcome our flesh, as Jesus did.
The mystery we are learning here is three fold; 1) Jesus proved to God He was worthy of the title King in the visible realm. 2) We must be baptized by the Holy Spirit. 3) We must learn to manage our flesh. Listening to the Holy Spirit and obediance to its guidance is the key to fulfilling this mystery.
