To understand who and what the Man-child is, we must first search the scriptures, and see what references are made of him, his work, and his destiny. We will first take some of the types in the Bible of the Man-child. From these we will see something of the work which he is to do in the last days. He is called a Man-child, because God is making all His people into one, with one HEAD which is CHRIST. We can see from the outset here that the Man-child is a many-membered body.  God sees this one-man company coming upon the world in the last days, and delivering the earth from heathen rule. This Man-child company will follow Jesus in his ministry as a flesh and blood human being, and then he will follow Jesus through death and resurrection.

THE PROPHETS’ VISION

The prophets saw the vision of a one-man company of people coming forth in the latter days to set creation free. – Isaiah 26:17-21. Also read Romans 8 & 9.

CONSIDER THIS

In John 21 Jesus told his disciples to “bring of the fish which ye have now caught.” There were 153 fish in the net. Jesus performed 153 recorded miracles. 153 divided by 17 equals 9. 17 is the number of the Man-child and 9 is the number for judgment.
All of the women that Jesus encountered were symbolic conditions of the church.
