Luke 1:37 - For with God nothing shall be impossible.
All of us know that for God nothing is impossible. This scripture gives more than just that message. When the Angel spoke to Mary this message in the translation the word shall is not put in by coincident. It is because of the TVM (Tone Voice Mood) of the verb 'impossible' the word shall was used.
Without going into the Hebrew grammar, in English the word 'SHALL' is used only with I and WE. With the other words WILL is used.
This brings us to two following means:
1) For with God nothing is impossible (God alone)
2) For with God nothing is impossible (God with us)
Since the word 'with' is used it indicates more than one party, therefore the scripture talks of when God is with us nothing is impossible. Mary believed and she received, are you too going to believe and receive?
Mary had the testimony of Elizabeth to encourage her to believe, tell me how many testimonies have you heard of God doing amazing things, still why do you not believe?
