  • Rev. Tim George on Luke 1:24
    Elisabeth hid herself according to the will of GOD so she could rejoice in the Lord for what He had done by taking away her reproach. We too must rejoice in the L˘rd for saving us and giving us a new name Christians. In the fulness ˘f time GOD sent Mary to c˘nfirm what GOD had done to her cousin Elisabeth. For with GOD nothing shall be impossible.
