Sun's not up yet! ...but the SONRISE has visited us in the Person of Jesus Christ!
This morning reading Luke 1, I took a fresh look at the prophecy spoken by Zechariah the father of John the Baptist about his son's position in the coming of the Messiah. This really thrilled me this morning! I love the beauty of the Word of God!
"And you, child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for Him, to give His people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins because of the tender mercy of our God by which the RISING SUN will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death to guide our feet into the path of peace." Luke 1:76-79
Knowledge of salvation, forgiveness, tender mercy of God, to those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, guide our feet in peace, ALL BECAUSE THE DAWN (RISING SUN FROM HEAVEN) WAS COMING!!!!!
