“No Room at the Inn?”
Most of us, as children growing up, learned the Christmas Story. We might even have appeared in the school Nativity play or at least watched the story of how 2,000 years ago, Three Wise Men set out to seek the promised new-born King as foretold in prophecy 800 years before. Today, wise men still seek Christ.
“And she brought forth her firstborn son,Luke 2:7
and wrapped Him in swaddling clothes,
and laid Him in a manger; because
there was no room for them in the inn”.
The wise men of long ago brought gifts worthy of a great King, but Jesus the King of Kings, the actual creator of the wise men, the creator of Mary and Joseph and every person living now or ever have or whoever will, the Messiah, was born a humble child wrapped in swaddling clothes and laying in a manger “because there was No Room at the Inn.”
“All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made,” John 1:3
But WHY was there No Room at the Inn?
The reason why there was no room at the Inn is, that God did not want a room at the Inn. God did not want His Holy Son born anywhere where there would be drunkenness, sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery, idol worshippers, evil thoughts, etc.
In short there was SIN in the INN and so it was not a fitting place for the birth of a Holy God.
At that time, that was the stable! It would have been nothing for the creator of all things seen and unseen to provide the grandest palace adorned with Gold and Silver but it was not with gold and silver we were to be saved nor would the Lord condone mammon and greed.
The humble stable with the animals that bore no sin was the cleanest place for our Saviour to be born. Yes and although the many answers of Christians everywhere are honest, logical, and obvious, answers tend to focus on either the Inn it was full; or the time a busy time; people on the move; the tax season; the town was busy; all hotels, b&b’s were full; or the event, the census etc.
For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? Mark 8:36-37
However had our Living God wanted, I don’t think there would have been any major problem on His part to provide a room at any inn of His choosing, at any time regardless of how many people were or were not coming for any census or event at that time.
It was God’s wisdom and predestination alone that His Son Jesus Christ be born on ground that was holy and without sin in the camp. We have an all powerful God, the creator of the heavens and the earth, the universe and all universes. The creator of you and I, the giver and taker of life itself where ALL things are possible and who knows ALL things past, present and future, and He had already made up His mind to have His Son born on ground made Holy by His presence.
Jesus came on Earth for one reason… Souls, to save the souls of mankind. And He willingly went to a horrific death on the cross for you and me. Jesus paid a debt He did not owe because we owed a debt we could not pay. He didn’t HAVE to go to the cross. He could have said NO. Jesus is equal with the Father.
“For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily;”2 Colossians 9
The question is… Would YOU do it?
I hope this revelation has been a blessing to you and an encouragement to your faith. We pray God’s blessings on you and your families. Wishing you a very Happy, Holy and Peaceful Christmas. Your brother in Christ, Paul.
