God had prepared two bodies for the Lord Jesus Christ. One was the earthly tabernacle of His physical body. This body was formed by the Father and brought forth by the Holy Spirit. When the angel of the Lord appeared to Mary and said,“.. thou shalt conceive in thy womb and bring forth a son”, Mary asked the angel, “How shall this be, seeing I know not a man?”The angel of the Lord replied, “The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee”. In other words the angel told Mary that her son would neither be the product of man, nor the result of the will of man.There would be no display of the power of man in the bringing forth of this Son.The first body of the Lord Jesus was birthed of the Spirit; it was born from above. The first fruit was from above; He was heavenly and born of the Spirit. The second body of Christ that the Father is forming and preparing is the many-membered body of Christ, which is the Church. The principles that brought forth the physical body shall also be at work in the bringing forth of this many-membered Body. The angel’s declaration to Mary that the Holy Ghost shall overshadow thee, is also to be true concerning the bringing forth of this body of many sons. If the Firstfruit was not the product of man, nor was born of the will of man, then this shall also be true about Body of Christ, His Church.
