Let me show you the way Mary walked when she received her promise! (Rhema Word).
She responded with: “I am the servant of Adonai; may it happen to me as you have said.”
She than went to the hills of Judah (tribe of praise) and visit Z’kharyah and Elisheva.
The name Z’kharyah (Zacharias) means “the LORD remembers” and Elisheva (Elizabeth) means, “the oath of my God.”
This child is the promise of our LORD to Israel! And you as a believer out of the Gentiles are grafted in the olive tree! Yeshua the Moshiach (Messiah).
Mary gave thanks and praises and kept the promise under her heart!
We do this also! We are not going to talk to others about it, but keep it in our own hearts, and sit in our desert of Judah while praising and thanking our LORD! (Incubation time)
The LORD is building our faith while we praise and rest at His feet. We read the word and murmur the word so it will grow in our heart!
But we know that HE Who Promised Is faithful!
Not our will but HIS will be done!
LOGOS written word of our LORD RHEMA it will speak to our heart!
(Through a dream, scripture, his still small voice or a prophet of the LORD).
During the time of expecting we rest and allow Abba (Father) to stir up our faith, all honor and glory to our LORD Yeshua (Jesus).
The root-verb נזר (nazar) means to consecrate or separate oneself, although it doesn’t seem to indicate a physical removal from society (Ezekiel 14:7, Hosea 9:10, Leviticus 15:31). This root-verb occurs about a dozen times in the Bible, but its derivatives occur slightly more often:
The masculine noun נזר (nezer), whose meanings split into the concept of consecration. Numbers 6 speaks of the “hair of his consecration,” (which was long, uncut hair) and signs of consecration, namely a woman’s hair, since that probably reminded of consecrated hair; Jeremiah 7:29, and a crown or diadem (2 Samuel 1:10, Psalm 89:40). This may perhaps shed some light on Revelation 13:1.
The masculine noun נזיר (nazir), meaning a consecrated one or Nazirite. The entire chapter of Numbers 6 deals with the Nazirite vow, ending with the famous benediction of Numbers 6:24-26.
In Genesis 49:26 Jacob compares his son Joseph to a fruitful plant whose branches (literally ‘daughters’) run over a wall, and calls him a nazir to his brothers. In Leviticus 25:5 and 11 the word nazir is applied to the vine, which was not to be pruned in the Sabbatical year, but it is unclear why this vine is so special (but see John 15:5: “I am the vine, you are the branches”).
The denominative verb נזר (nazar), meaning to be a consecrated one or Nazirite, or to live like one (Numbers 6 only).
The masculine plural noun מנזר (minzar), which is difficult to interpret. This noun occurs only once, in Nahum 3:17, and seems to mean consecrated ones or princes (crowned ones).
Also see the verb קדש (qadash), which also means to separate or be holy. (Source: Abarim Publications.)
“In the sixth month, the angel Gavri’el was sent by God to a city in the Galil called Natzeret, to a virgin engaged to a man named Yosef, of the house of David; the virgin’s name was Miryam.
Approaching her, the angel said, “Shalom, favored lady! Adonai is with you!”
She was deeply troubled by his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be. The angel said to her, “Don’t be afraid, Miryam, for you have found favor with God. Look! You will become pregnant, you will give birth to a son, and you are to name him Yeshua. He will be great, he will be called Son of Ha‘Elyon. Adonai, God, will give him the throne of his forefather David; and he will rule the House of Ya‘akov forever — there will be no end to his Kingdom.”
“How can this be,” asked Miryam of the angel, “since I am a virgin?”
The angel answered her,“The Ruach HaKodesh will come over you, the power of Ha‘Elyon will cover you. Therefore the holy child born to you will be called the Son of God.
“You have a relative, Elisheva, who is an old woman; and everyone says she is barren. But she has conceived a son and is six months pregnant! For with God, nothing is impossible.” Miryam said, “I am the servant of Adonai; may it happen to me as you have said.” Then the angel left her.
Without delay, Miryam set out and hurried to the town in the hill country of Y’hudah where Z’kharyah lived, entered his house and greeted Elisheva. When Elisheva heard Miryam’s greeting, the baby in her womb stirred. Elisheva was filled with the Ruach HaKodesh and spoke up in a loud voice,
“How blessed are you among women! And how blessed is the child in your womb! But who am I, that the mother of my LORD should come to me? For as soon as the sound of your greeting reached my ears, the baby in my womb leaped for joy! Indeed you are blessed, because you have trusted that the promise Adonai has made to you will be fulfilled.”
Then Miryam said, “My soul magnifies Adonai; and my spirit rejoices in God, my Savior, who has taken notice of his servant-girl in her humble position. For — imagine it! — from now on, all generations will call me blessed!
The Mighty One has done great things for me! Indeed, his name is holy; and in every generation he has mercy on those who fear him.
He has performed mighty deeds with his arm, routed the secretly proud, brought down rulers from their thrones, raised up the humble, filled the hungry with good things, but sent the rich away empty.
He has taken the part of his servant Isra’el, mindful of the mercy which he promised to our fathers, to Avraham and his seed forever.”
Miryam stayed with Elisheva for about three months and then returned home,” Luke 1:26-56 Complete Jewish Bible (CJB).
Blessings and Shalom over you!
