Wig’s Word of God Today 12-24-2011
You, my child, shall be called the prophet of the Most High, for you will go before the LORD to prepare His way, to give His people knowledge of Salvation by the forgiveness of their sins. Luke 1:76-77
2 Samuel 7:1-16, Psalm 89 & Luke 1:67-79
After months of not being able to talk wondering how it can be his wife Elizabeth conceived, Zachariah’s mouth is opened as his relatives ask him if he agrees with calling his son John. “John is his name” Zachariah writes on a tablet and immediately his tongue is freed and he begins to worship and glorify God. How many of us have felt the same elation about being freed from something that has gripped your heart and soul for days, months or even countless years? Did you call out to God in thanksgiving? Did you get down on your knees and thank God for seeing you through? An old man’s barren wife gives birth to the prophet who calls out to people to make way for the LORD Who will give them Salvation from their sins should be reason enough for us all to believe but our doubts rule our thoughts and actions to do selfish things.
In our preparation for the Christ’s arrival, we need to give ourselves the silence needed to prepare our lives for the LORD’s blessing of Salvation from sin and just be quiet and listen to the world around us as Zachariah was forced to do by the LORD’s grace. In this silence we should be praying prayers of thanksgiving for God for giving us His Only Son to free us from the chains of foolishness and give us a mind to Bible practice, a heart of prayers and a soul of proclamation to give our lives witness of God’s Truth and Salvation.
Be prepared to talk to the youth of today by your diligence in the little details of life such as your clothes, Christ pins on your shirt and God stickers on your car. I once told a friend “I have consecrated my life to the LORD in everything I do. I purposely put on clothes with God’s design, my car is stickered up with the Gospel and my life’s purpose is to share His Salvation with anyone, anytime and anywhere.” Yesterday I had a 19-year-old boy ask me about God because of my car stickers and prayers I was reciting aloud when I was getting gas. I could see in his face the desire of knowing God’s Truth. We must be prepared to help a lost generation find God’s love. How are you preparing your life to share His Salvation in loving your love of Christ Jesus?
By God, His Son and His Spirit we pray to be silent to listen to Your Truth lead us to be Your children of Truth. We pray for every child and parent. We pray for each other- our families and friends. We pray for our leaders and police officers. We pray for Prayer Point. We pray for people traveling for Christmas. We pray for Tim. We pray for LIFE FM. We pray for the Spirit to accept, bravery in God to change and intelligence of Christ’s Truth to know. In Jesus Name we pray. Amen.
God Bless His Truth for America,

Knowledge of Salvation to Save the Day- Luke 1:67-79
I shout with Truth in my lungs
Loving God by my grace-filled tongue
Zachariah is my name to believe and see
My boy named John will welcome He
In the desert he will go to shout
Repent and Baptize your doubts
A Holy Covenant to forever breathe
A righteous life for you and me
My child shall eternally cry
I’m the prophet of the Most High
Prior to the LORD to prepare His Way
Knowledge of Salvation to Save the Day
