Christmas: The Miracle of Pregnancy in a Teenager Who Loved God
By Julio Severo
2,000 years ago, teenage pregnancies normally occurred within marriage. Mary’s case was problematic because while she was engaged to Joseph, God sent an angel to her to say that she had been chosen to be the mother of Jesus Christ.
It was not a prophetic message for a future pregnancy. As soon as Mary said “yes” to God’s choice, she became pregnant. And she was about 14 years old, by the Christian tradition. Even a few years ago, marriage and pregnancy at that age were not a rarity. My wife’s grandparents married at the age of 14, in a Lutheran church.
The problem, in Mary’s case, was that her pregnancy happened directly from the Holy Spirit, leaving Joseph with several suspicions against her. After all, what is the groom who would calmly accept the bride to explain to him: “Dear, as Jews, we practice sexual abstinence until the official wedding date, but God decided to get me pregnant and I accepted it. Now, I’m pregnant. Isn’t it a blessing?”
I don’t know Joseph’s exact reaction, but I doubt he was happy. In this situation, Joseph could adopt two attitudes: Reveal to everyone that Mary became pregnant without him, outside of marriage, thus exposing her to public shame and dishonor, including punishment, or a secret separation.
The Bible says that he chose the second option.
“Now the birth of Jesus Christ took place in this way. When his mother Mary had been betrothed to Joseph, before they came together she was found to be with child from the Holy Spirit. And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying, ‘Joseph, son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit. She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.’” (Matthew 1:18-21 ESV)
It took the supernatural visitation of an angel to convince Joseph that Mary had not betrayed him by sleeping with any other man. The angel made it clear to him that Mary’s pregnancy was really God’s work. Joseph believed the angel’s word and welcomed Mary into his home.
But the Talmud, a document that contains Jewish traditions outside the Bible, has another version, which is much more malicious. The Talmud says: “After she had been driven out by her husband and while she was wandering about in a disgraceful way she secretly gave birth to Jesus.”
The Talmud, written by religious Jews who hated Christianity, makes it appear that Mary became pregnant after being expelled by Joseph and living on the street.
If Mary had become pregnant outside of marriage in Greece, Italy or in any pagan country 2,000 years ago, there would not be too many problems. But unlike pagan societies, Jewish society had strict moral laws.
I don’t understand the reasons why God decided to put a teenager in such a dilemma, but who am I to question His wisdom? He always knows what He does, even when we don’t understand.
Today, Mary’s dilemmas would not be less. Modern laws, created largely by socialists, flood adolescents with comprehensive immoral sex education, including all kinds of birth control devices. The message is clear: They can have sex at will, every day, every week, every month. Teenage sex is not a crime. What is considered a crime is getting married and getting pregnant in adolescence.
If Mary lived today, her case would end at the Children Protective Services, which could decide on an abortion for her, as every pregnancy of a girl aged 14 or younger is presumed to be the result of rape. Joseph, as a man of legal age, would be arrested as a rapist.
Both the teenager Mary and the man Joseph were God-fearing and followed God’s guidelines for sex, marriage and pregnancy. But such obedience from them would now place them in direct conflict with the modern socialist laws that dominate society.
Mary would be placed in the custody of the socialist State, which would totally reject a “pregnancy of the Holy Spirit,” treating such pregnancy instead as a “venereal disease.” And Joseph would be arrested for “rape” of a teenager.
These are socialist laws made many times by depraved men in the Brazilian Congress. Men who do not hesitate to sexually abuse teenage girls. In fact, in the 1990s, in the middle of Collor’s right-wing administration in Brazil, I was walking through the corridors of the Brazilian Congress and my friend pointed out the pimp that brought teenage girls to representatives and senators.
He told me that everyone there knew about this crime, but nobody did anything.
In modern socialist society, adolescent Mary would have a lot of freedom, but only for depravities. She could use contraceptives and no law and the Children Protective Services would bother her. She could attend sexual binges, and the Children Protective Services would not bother her.
However, if she chose the decent path and, as a teenager, decided to marry and become pregnant, the Children Protective Services would intervene without fail to cause serious problems for her and her baby.
However, God is not absent when great state, religious and even demonic powers try to prevent God’s will.
God’s angels and their supernatural interventions are above the Talmud and its anti-Christian prejudices.
God’s angels and their supernatural interventions are above socialist tendencies, even when enshrined in law, which oppose teenagers who choose the right sex life through marriage and pregnancy.
I don’t know how many teenagers there are today who love God to the point that they would say “yes” to a divine mission that is rejected by a society that rejects God and His purposes. I only know that when they say “yes,” the angels take action. Miracle after miracle happens.
If it had depended on the Children Protective Services and their draconian socialist laws in favor of free sex among teenagers, but against teenage marriage and pregnancy, the first Christmas would never have happened.
The first Christmas, with a teenage girl giving birth to baby Jesus, was a miracle.
This miracle continues today to challenge the minds of those who do not understand or accept how God can impregnate a teenager when socialist laws are so clear that this kind of marriage and pregnancy is a “disease” or even a “crime.”
