A Christmas Miracle Zacharias and Elizabeth

December 14, 2018

Zacharias, husband of Elisabeth, was a righteous and blameless person was childless!Zacharias was also a priest. One day as he was serving in the temple the angel Gabriel appeared to him and announced that his wife would have a child.

Although Zacharias was moved by the awesome presence of the angel, he could not accept that his aged wife could still give birth. In order to stop him confessing his unbelief he was unable to speak and remained speechless until the day that the baby should be given a name.

The custom was to name the baby after his father but Zacharias asked for a tablet and wrote, his name is John as instructed by the angel. Then he was able to speak.

Luke 1:63-64 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all. And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God.

Elizabeth was well beyond child bearing age but God gave her a child in answer to many years of sadness and grief because she was barren. He used miracle baby, John, to be the forerunner of Jesus.Elizabeth and her husband had dearly longed for a child. They had prayed for one and the culture of the day had demanded they needed one. Yet no child came.

The miracle told to Zachariah by the Angel happened and Elizabeth was pregnant!

Luke 1:7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.

Praise the Lord

Today is a special day for Tom and Carolyn Curtis. It is our 15th Wedding Anniversary. You may not think that is so great but it is really a miracle. Both of us were traveling alone after the loss of our spouses, working for the Lord in different ministries when we met. Tom went to Iowa and I traveled the East coast for a year after we met. Then we worked in a ministry together in Florida for a short time. I had been praying for Tom and about the relationship for the whole year. (Tom had no clue.)

When we married Tom had many health problems and had been told by doctors that he had only 3 years to live. That was back in 1995. He was reluctant to marry in 2001 but God directed him and we have been blessed with a wonderful marriage.

God then led us to begin SOS Events Ministry and in 15 years hundreds of Christians have been trained to serve the Lord, over 60,000 souls have made decisions for Christ and at least 2 other ministries have been started with the training of SOS.

God took two ordinary people and for 15 years has blessed us with a good marriage and a great ministry. So today we Praise the Lord for the blessings He has given and I still believe in miracles.

Psalms 9:1 ‚Äč I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart; I will shew forth all thy marvellous works.

Barren Elisabeth

Elizabeth was well beyond child bearing age but God gave her a child in answer to many years of sadness and grief because she was barren. He used miracle baby to be the forerunner of Jesus.
Elizabeth and her husband had dearly longed for a child. They had prayed for one and the culture of the day had demanded they needed one. Yet no child came.
The miracle eventually happened and a pregnant and rather embarrassed Elizabeth hid herself for 5 months.

Luke 1:7
And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years.
