Isaiah 7 contains the famous prophecy which states that a virgin will conceive and bear a child. The Hebrew word used for ‘virgin’ is ‘almah.’
The first time the word ‘almah’ appears is in Exodus where a young almah, or maiden named Miriam oversees the bringing of the redeemer Moses as a baby down the Nile to Pharaoh’s court.
Over a thousand years later, a baby would be born and named after that almah; the sister of Moses. We know her as ‘Mary’ though she was always called ‘Miriam’. She would be the true almah - the virgin maiden chosen by God to bring the redeemer as a baby—Messiah— into the world.
The word ‘almah’ means ‘one who is hidden,’ as in hidden from the world, separate and pure and untouched. In the same way, those who choose to become pure, untouched, separate from sin, cleansed, and holy - these will be the ones who will bear God’s presence and blessings into the world. Be that person.
Become a spiritual ‘almah’ today. Separate yourself from sin and miracles will be born. For Messiah only comes through an “almah.”
TODAY'S MISSION - Become a spiritual ‘almah’ today. Separate yourself from whatever you need to separate from and join yourself all the more to God.
PRAYER: Holy Father, You are the purest of the pure. Your way is the way — and I am completely in awe of You. My heart knows joy because You have allowed a wretch like me to glimpse Your Holy Majesty. Your love is abound even in my darkest hour.
I see the lantern of hope that Jesus carries for those who wish to follow Him. Lord, my ALMAH Father — please, never let my hand go, even when I am drowning in the mirth of this sinful, fleshly life. I request this, in the name of your Holy Son, my Lord — Yeshua! AMEN.
GOD BLESS YOU.
