John, the Miracle Baby

December 14, 2016

God’s miracle preformed in Zachariahs and Elizabeth’s baby, John. A child conceived in old age but chosen to go before The Lord to prepare his way. We see John in later scripture doing that as he preached and Jesus came to him to be baptized.Can God preform miracles today? He is the same yesterday, today and forever.

John the Baptist knew who Jesus was and declared it to everyone who would listen. He was a witness. Those of us who are saved also know who Jesus is and what He has done for us, we have a responsibility to tell others.

Ask The Lord to give you opportunity to tell someone about Him today.

Luke 1:76 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: for thou shalt go before the face of the Lord to prepare his ways;

In the Bible, the angel,Gabriel, is mentioned in both the Old and New Testaments. In the Old Testament, he appeared to the prophet Daniel, delivering explanations of Daniel’s visions. In the Gospel of Luke, Gabriel appeared to Zecharias, and to the virgin Mary foretelling the births of John the Baptist and Jesus. The name Gabriel means man of God.
In the Christmas story he appeared first to Zacharias.

Luke 1:13
But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias:for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
