 #76 SUNRISE

The time has come for the Birth of JESUS!!!  Man has been waiting for hundreds of years for the birth of the Savior of the World!  The time has come and John the Baptist has been born to prepare the way for Him!

"And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Spirit, and prophesied, saying..."And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before the LORD to prepare His ways; to give knowledge of salvation to His people in the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, whereby the SUNRISE shall visit us from on high to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace."  Luke 1:78

DEFINITION OF SUNRISE

: the time when the sun appears above the horizon in the morning : dawn or daybreak : the colors that are in the sky when the sun slowly appears above the horizon

Jesus, You are the SUNRISE!  You are the light that shines on those who sit in darkness  - to guide our feet into the way of peace!    This verse is from the prophesy of Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist.  John is the one who would go on before You, Jesus - to prepare Your way!  The time has come for Your birth!!  You are the SUNRISE - the light that shines in the darkness!

Worship Jesus - the time has come for His birth - our SUNRISE!
