Did You Know Jesus was Married and had
Children, and that the True Prophets on Down to Modern Times are of this Noblest Blood, or
Race, Hence the Kingdom of God belongs to them by Lineage as well as by Right?
10 And now I say unto you, who shall declare his generation? Behold, I say
unto you, that when his soul has been made an offering for sin he shall see
his seed. And now what say ye? And who shall be his seed?
"I will venture to say that if Jesus Christ were
now to pass through the most pious countries in Christendom with a train of
women,. such as used to follow him, fondling about him, combing his hair,
anointing him with precious ointment, washing his feet with tears, and
wiping them with the hair of their heads and unmarried, or even married, he
would be mobbed, tarred, and feathered, and rode, not on an ass, but on a
rail. What did the old Prophet mean when he said (speaking of Christ), "He
shall see his seed, prolong his days, &c." Did Jesus consider it necessary
to fulfil every righteous command or requirement of his Father? He most
certainly did. This he witnessed by submitting to baptism under the hands of
John. "Thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness," said he. Was it
God's commandment to man, in the beginning, to multiply and replenish the
earth? None can deny this, neither that it was a righteous command; for upon
an obedience to this, depended the perpetuity of our race. Did Christ come
to destroy the law or the Prophets, or to fulfil them? He came to fulfil.
Did he multiply, and did he see his seed? Did he honour his Father's law by
complying with it, or did he not? Others may do as they like, but I will not
charge our Saviour with neglect or transgression in this or any other duty."
