PS stands for Plain and Simple! I love writing stories to enhance reading of God's Word. The Holy Bible has always been transforming lives and penetrative to our inner souls where no other books can ever do. I desire every Christian to love God's Word as fresh bread from the oven of heaven!

INTERVIEWS ABOUT JESUS: MARY
MARY, THE EARTHLY MOTHER OF JESUS
Question: What was your initial feeling when you first heard of the news that you would be pregnant even though you were not married yet?
MARY: The first feeling that came was fear. I was really troubled. Would anyone not be troubled?
Question: You mean the angel’s presence did not calm you?
MARY: Initially it was the angel that startled me and later, it was the message more than the messenger.
Question: When did you start to calm down?
MARY: The first thought was “O My God, I am a virgin, what will people say?!” I confessed it was a little bit selfish then. The angel spoke many words but when he mentioned about the continuing reign of King David and that his kingdom will never end, I remembered the prophecy concerning that. I was still afraid but when I thought I was chosen to be a servant for that, I started to calm down.
Question: Do you believe during that time that God can make you pregnant without the help of your future husband?
MARY: I was sceptical at first but when the angel spoke about the Holy Spirit’s power, I began to think everything is possible with God. Then there was the Elizabeth Factor. The angel told me she was pregnant even though she was very old. I think you should know of Abraham and Sarah’s story, right?
Question: Many people now believe that Jesus is God in the flesh. Do you really know that when you got the message then?
MARY: Not fully. I knew He would be a King and that He would rule forever. I know now I was carrying someone HUGE, if you know what I mean.
Question: How do you feel to be chosen as the servant for this huge task?
MARY: (wiping away tears) When everything started to settle down, there was this unbelievable joy that filled my entire being. This mission that I am carrying is obviously bigger than my life and deep within, I believe it is even bigger than Israel! I also want to thank God for a great husband who supported me all the way.
Question: Last question. What will be your next step?
MARY: To keep the baby healthy and safe, more importantly, to release Jesus, the Son of God, to do what He came to do.
