  • Rev. Autrey on Luke 1
    Luke 1 recor, 42When Elizabeth heard Mary s greeting, the child leapt in her womb. And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit and exclaimed with a loud cry, Blessed are you among women, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. 43And why has this happened to me, that the mother of my LORD comes to me? 44For as soon as I heard the sound of your greeting, the child in my womb leapt for joy. 45And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfilment of what was spoken to her by the LORD. Notice that Elizabeth used the word LORD to mean GOD. This means that Elizabeth knew that Mary was to be the mother of GOD. The people had waited a long time for the appearance of GOD AS SAVIOR to deliver them from their enemies. But we know that the real enemy was their many sins. This is what Elizabeth was talking about. So when the people refered to Jesus as LORD, they meant that they considered him to be God. The sense that the word LORD means GOD has been lost in today 's religious world, but this was not so in the days of John the Baptist and Jesus. What I am saying is, we must bring it back. Paul said in Romans 10 that we must confess "that Jesus is LORD OR GOD " in order to be saved. He goes on further to say that we must also believed that Jesus raised himself from the dead. And he tops it off by saying that anyone who prays to Jesus by calling on his name will be saved. Please consider this! "
