"Whereby shall I know this, for I am an old man...blah blah blah" An angel appears from our of the right side of the altar of incense, and you become filled with fear, and you hear the angel begin to tell you something absolutely wonderful; and with your very next breath you can't help but show how you have to maintain this stubborn false realism, and demand proof an angel from God is telling you?

"For, lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy." God breathed into man's nostrils the Breath of Life and he became a living soul. At the moment of conception, the living soul is replicated and begins to grow in the womb of its mother. The pure and innocent infant's soul rejoices at the voice of God's Blessed Elect because they have Jesus!

"Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee.." Many of us at first glance, have it hard to see the difference between Mary's answer and Zachariah's. But while the words of both were so similar, God knew what was the thought and intention.

"Zachariah said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this?..And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God;.." It seems amazing to us how Zachariah could answer like that; to still be so willfully unbelieving even while experiencing a heavenly visitation! It is no virtue or superiority of intellect; but a moral error! We must be people who believe the truth.

Luke was the best of the biographers of his day, bringing forth progenitors of Jesus and John, who would change the Spiritual landscape of Israel, God sending the High Priests, John and Jesus, being cousins, each having a role to play, each being miraculously born to righteous Jews! For the Jews sought out the Messiah to bring the word of God,to further their understanding of King of Kings, YHWH

Verse 34: Mary did not have doubt, but she was inquiring how she would become pregnant without having sexual relations. Mary was not ashamed of her virginity.

 


BSP's comment on 12/28/2017, 11:05am...

Verse 19: Zechariah doubted Gabriel's words. Although this message would have been hard to believe, Zechariah should have thought back to how Jehovah God blessed Abraham and Sarah with a child in their old age and that he still had the power to perform the same miracle.

It sounds like Luke was talking to a special people, maybe even people in the medical profession.....but my most inward parts tells me he is talking to a nation of people....perhaps even his peers....

Theophillus was not high priest at that time.

 


A disciple's comment on 11/29/2017, 11:30am...

" But he shall say, I tell you, I know you not whence ye are; depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity." If there is not a true repentance, and verifiable thorough-going conversion; if there is not an absolute and complete ceasing of sinning and turning one's back on the world, the flesh and the devil; all the church and Scripture quoting in the world will not get you into the kingdom of heaven!

"..it seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto you in order, most excellent Theophilus, that you might know the certainty of those things, wherein you have been instructed." Theophilus was the High Priest at the time; and it was to confirm the fulfillment of the Scriptures, to those ordained to be the Keepers of the Holy Testimony.

 


A disciple's comment on 6/15/2017, 7:34pm...

"Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God." "..every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God" 1 Jn. 4:1-6.

******* LUKE 1:37 FOR WITH GOD NOTHING SHALL BE IMPOSSIBLE *******JOHN 5:14 AFTERWARD JESUS FINDETH HIM IN THE TEMPLE AND SAID UNTO HIM --- BEHOLD THOU ART MADE WHOLE SIN NO MORE LEST A WORSE THING COME UNTO THEE --- JOHN 8:11 SHE SAID NO MAN MY LORD AND JESUS SAID UNTO HER NEITHER DO I CONDEMN THEE --- GO AND SIN NO MORE ---

 


Irene123's comment on 5/10/2017, 4:53pm...

V. 3 - " ..... most excellent Theophulis; v.4 - "That thou mightiest know the certainty of those things, wherein thou hast been instructed." "excellent" sounds like perhaps he was someone of the Temple, but Luke does not say, so neither can we state it as fact. But, he was a convert to Christianity of Luke's, We can know that much as per Luke's words to him. cont.

V. 36 - the angel Gabriel told Mary of Elisabeth's pregnancy. When you think on it, it seems 'odd' because now everybody concerned knows as soon as the couple knows. But then you think of the distance between Mary and Elis. and also their lives were just the same ol' same ol'; AND Elis. was 'old' so ...............

LUKE 1:73 THE OATH WHICH HE SWARE TO OUR FATHER ABRAHAM 1:74 THAT HE WOULD GRANT UNTO US THAT WE BEING DELIVERED OUT OF THE HAND OF OUR ENEMIES MIGHT SERVE HIM WITHOUT FEAR 1:75 IN HOLINESS AND RIGHTEOUSNESS ALL THE DAYS OF OUR LIVES ***PSALM 119:172 MY TONGUE SHALL SPEAK OF THY WORD FOR ALL THY COMMANDMENTS ARE RIGHTEOUSNESS

John the baptist would then be a cousin to Jesus

The great King of Heaven-Jesus, is preparing to come down to this lowly, filthy, sins-soaked earth on His mission of redemption. Mary is blessed to be the channel of His birth and Elisabeth to bring forth John, the precursor prophet. All these plans have been in place since the beginning of time. Praise God.

Kevin: Yes, Read Chapter 3.

 


Kevin's comment on 4/19/2017, 11:11am...

Would Zacharias and Elisabeth's son grow up to be known as John, the Baptist?

guys we are able to keep God's commands

Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth ? I tell you , Nay; but rather division. Luke12:51. Jesus will separate the bad from the good. Jesus wants no part of evil . I really understand that verse.

"It seemed good to me also, having had perfect understanding of all things from the very first, to write unto you in order, most excellent Theophilus, that you might know the certainty of those things, wherein you hast been instructed." I found something very interesting in Josephus; where he says that after Joseph Caiaphas, Jonathan became High Priest; and after Jonathan, his brother Theophilus.
