The Lord God Established during Creation that one should only mate with their own kind. Those that teach The Lord God impregnated Mary the wife of Joseph in the Christian New Testament, Matthew 1:18 DO NOT UNDERSTAND The Holy Scriptures Forbid a union between The Lord God and humans. So we will review why it is impossible for The Creator to have impregnated Mary, the wife of Joseph.
First, Mary was the wife of Joseph. Impregnating another man's wife violates The Holy Bond of Marriage Established by The Lord God.
Second, Leviticus 18 Teaches us about forbidden unions. We can understand it is wrong to have physical relations with animals, but some cannot understand why it is wrong for The Lord God to impregnate Mary, the wife of Joseph.
We have difficulty relating to The Lord God, so Scripture uses anthropomorphisms.
We misunderstanding The Holy Scriptures use of anthropomorphisms. The Holy Scripture uses anthropomorphisms like 'The hand of The Lord' or, 'The hand of God' or, 'the eye of The Lord' or, 'The Lord God Walking in the garden' or, 'The eyes of The Lord' are not real. We call God our Father. We ascribe physical features to The Lord God. The more we personalize The Lord God we think of God as having human features. These are figures of speech. God is a Spirit. God does not have eyes, hands, ears, or feet like humans have.
Third, The Lord God is Holy. Our issue is that we cannot begin to comprehend The Holiness of The Lord God. It greatly distresses me to see the IGNORANT way humans use The Holy Name. Some humans write His Four Letter Name like their own. Where is the respect for The Holy Name of God? How is His Holy Name separated?
Dear Friends, if you are my friend... if you want to learn from me then DO NOT WRITE OR SAY THE HOLY FOUR LETTER NAME OF The Lord!! Isaiah wrote, 'they shall 'Sanctify My Name', and sanctify the Holy One of Jacob, and shall fear The God of Israel.' Isaiah 29.23 Those who use The Holy Four-Letter Name of The Lord inappropriately do not understand what it means to 'Sanctify My Name.' Yet, we understand the importance and value of carefully handling rare antiques that are NOT holy!
The Lord's Name is sanctified by those separate and guard His Holy Name. His Name is not to be used by any of us!! The Lord's Name is so Holy that His Name is only spoken by The High Priest on Yom Kippur!! Why do we use the word HaShem, meaning the Name? Why do we use the Word Ad-ni in Prayers? It is because The Lord's Name is So very Holy!! When one fails to grasp the Holiness of The Lord's Name, they will not understand God would NEVER impregnate Mary, the wife of Joseph or any human!! Our purpose in this world is to sanctify His Holy Name. We do not write or say the Four-Letter Name of The Lord. You cannot be my friend if you do this.
'For I am the Lord that brings you out of the land of Egypt, to be God to you. You shall, therefore, be Holy, for I Am Holy.'
Some do not understand the concept of what it means to be Holy. The Lord God is Separated from everyone and everything. None of us can exist outside of a zone in which The Lord God has constricted His Revelation of Light so that we may exist. This zone is called Tzimtzum.

Fourth is the Separation of Kind with Kind
And He, God Said, תַּדְשֵׁא הָאָרֶץ 'Let the earth sprout forth' Those interested in knowing The Truth should take not of The Word תַּדְשֵׁא.
The First Letter is NOT part of the Word דֶּשֶׁא meaning. Grass or to sprout forth. The Letter ת Tav frequently is added to the front of a Word as a Sign. The Letter ת Tav is the last Letter of אוֹת Oht meaning 'Sign'. In Genesis 4.15 we read that The Lord Placed a Sign on Cain. The Sign was The Letter ת Tav. Rabbi Michael Munk The Wisdom In The Hebrew Alphabet Mesorah Publications, Brooklyn, N.Y. 1990), p. 219
And The Lord Said to The Angel Gabriel, 'Go through The midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark [of The Letter Tav] upon the foreheads of the men who sigh and who cry for all the abominations that are done in its midst thereof etc.' This Letter Tav was written on forehead of The Righteous with ink. The Tav written in ink denoted תִּחְיֶה meaning 'You shall live. The Tav was written on the foreheads of the wicked with blood denoted תָּמוּת meaning you shall die. Sabbath 55a. The Letter ת Tav represents אֱמֶת Truth and אוֹת A Sign. So when we see The Letter ת Tav in front of a Word that does not begin with The Letter ת Tav, this is A Sign to us. What is אוֹת The Sign? The reader is informed by the Sign of The Letter ת Tav to stop and search for a hidden revelation.
And to the others, He Said in my hearing, 'Go you after [The Angel Gabrial] through The City, and strike; let not your eye spare, nor have any pity; Slay utterly old men and young men, young girls, and little children, and women; but do not come near any man upon whom is the mark of The Letter ת Tav ; and begin at my sanctuary. In Genesis 1.11 The Sign of The Letter ת Tav is in front of דֶּשֶׁא informs us of the End of Days prophecy in Deuteronomy 33 of אֵשְׁ דָּת The Fiery Torah.
Tah Dih Say / To Sprout forth
ת400 ד4 ש300 א1 = 705
א1 ש300 ד4 ת400 = 705
Aish Dat / The Fiery Torah.
Just as The Firey Torah will be sealed upon the hearts of The People of Israel In Jeremiah 31 'kind producing with kind' is sealed upon earth. For those who are interested, there is no way translators can translate The significance of The Letter Tav being placed in front of a Word. We return to Genesis 1.11.
And He, God Said, תַּדְשֵׁא הָאָרֶץ 'Let the earth sprout forth' grass, herbs, from seed, Fruit trees [from seed] לְמִינוֹ each made after it's own kind [of seed], from seed that is within it on the earth and it was so.
The Lord God MADE each seed-yielding fruit tree after in own fruit kind. Mixing fruit trees is forbidden! Engrafting one fruit tree into another fruit tree is forbidden. Rabbi A. Y. Kahan The Taryag Mitzvot (Brooklyn, N.Y. Keser Torah Publications 1987, 1988) pp 161 - 162.
Observe everything from Aleph to Tav of My Statutes. תִּשְׁמֹרוּ Each of you shall guard your cattle. Do not mate to cross breed [mingle] to create a crossbreed. Do not plant your field with mixed seed. And do not mix a garment with [wool and linen fibers] with any combination. Do not put it on you! See Deuteronomy 22.11
Genesis 1.12 - דֶּשֶׁא עֵשֶׂב מַזְרִיעַ זֶרַע לְמִינֵהוּ
And the earth brought forth grass, and herb yielding seed לְמִינֵהוּ after its kind, and tree yielding fruit, whose seed was in itself, לְמִינֵהוּ after its kind; and God Saw that it was good.
And God Created the great whales, and every kind of creature that creeps which live in the waters, לְמִינֵהֶם after of it's kind, and every of winged bird, לְמִינֵהוּ of its kind, and God Saw that it was good.
And God Said, 'Let the earth bring forth living creatures, לְמִינָהּ each after its kind, cattle, and creeping things, and beasts of the earth לְמִינָהּ each after its kind,' and it was so.
And thus God Made the beasts of the earth לְמִינָהּ each of its kind, and cattle לְמִינָהּ each of its kind, and everything from Aleph to Tav of all that creep upon the earth לְמִינֵהוּ each of its kind; and God Saw that it was good.
Genesis 7.2 - 3
Of every clean beast, you shall take to you seven pairs, the male and his female; and of beasts that are not clean one pair, the male, and his female. Of birds also of the air by seven pairs, the male, and the female; to keep seed alive upon the face of all the earth.
The Angels Shamchazai [also know as Chazai or Hazai] and Azael looked upon the daughters of man.
That the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were pretty; and they took them as wives all those whom they chose.
Giants resulted from these unnatural forbidden unions between the Nefilim, i.e the fallen angels and the daughters of men. The World was destroyed because of them, Genesis 6.11. The point is that The Lord God Established each of us to have and enjoy physical relationships with our own kind.
Every reference in The Holy Scriptures of Angels is in the masculine. The Lord God permitted Angeles to take on the form of men, yet Angels were not men. The Angels Shamchazai and Azael were permitted to take on the entire for of man so they could be tested as man is tested. They failed. They became vile sinners. They were destroyed in the flood.
Fifth, God is Echad! This means God does not reproduce HIMSELF! Otherwise, He would not be Echad. The Lord God is NOT three in one. The Lord God is ONLY One!
It is for these reasons and other that the Lord God did not impregnate Mary, the wife of Joseph.
