People's Bible Notes for Luke 1:70

Lu 1:70 As he spke by the mouth of his holy prophets. "Of him have all the prophets borne witness" (Ac 10:43). "The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy" (Re 19:10). Bishop Brownrig says: ``The whole volume of Scripture did prophesy of him. He was the sum and scope of all their predictions. He was Abraham's promised seed, Abraham's Isaac, Jacob's Shiloh, Moses' Great Prophet, Esaias' Immanuel, Ezekiel's Shepherd, Daniel's Holy One, Zechariah's Branch, Malachi's Angel; all of them predictions to foretell his coming. All their types and ceremonies pointed at him. He was Abel's Sacrifice, Noah's Dove, Abraham's First Fruits, Aaron's Rod, the Israelites' Rock, the Patriarchs' Manna, David's Tabernacle, Solomon's Temple; all these prefigured his incarnation. They were the folds and swathing of the this babe Jesus.''

    Jedonai, You dare to say that we aren't able to keep God's commands? What God commands us to do; to love Him with all our being, and our neighbor as our selves; love out of a pure heart and a good conscience, and faith without hypocrisy; to not commit murder, adultery, lying, stealing, or coveting anything that is our neighbor's, and honoring our parents; Jesus said, "This do, and you shall live."

    steve:what is the WILL of GOD?
    This is the will of God. Luke 10:27. And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself. Just ponder over it continually in your heart and the Holy Spirit will guide you.

    disciple: No one can keep the commandments! They show us how sinful we are, in need of a perfect Sacrifice. Hebrews 10:12/ Without The Blood of The Lamb,The Son of God,there is no Salvation. The Father will call: John 6:44/Forgiving 1John 1:9/Baptized with the Holy Ghost:Matthew 3:11/You will be made new 2Corinthians5:17 you will know impossible not to know! We're Holy before Him because of JESUS

    Eliz. barrenness wasn't an unfortunate circumstance; it was God's plan to bring forth John at that time. Why John 'n Jesus were born 6 mos. apart I don't know; God has His planned timing. I concur that Zach. 'n Eliz. were sad about no children, but they stayed with the Lord in spite of trials. And were they BLESSED!!! God is so GOOD - all the time - if we will just trust Him, with patience.
