The story of the birth of the Emmanuel, God’s only son, has many interesting characters in the storytelling. We will meet a few unique characters in the book of Luke 1: 5-25 and Zechariah 1: 1-6.
“Zechariah, our priest has seen what? You say that he saw what, and it spoke to him? Oh sure, is he feeling alright?”
How would you respond to a person who had visions and was always in your face preaching against the sinful life that you and others were living? Well, God used such an individual, Zechariah, a prophet of Israel, to give HOPE to God’s people by revealing God’s future deliverance through the Messiah. Two characters in the story, Zechariah and his wife, Elizabeth although now old, were going to play unique roles in the coming of the Messiah.
The book of Zechariah was written for the Jewish people. What was the main purpose for those who returned to Jerusalem?
Why did these people require constant encouragement from the prophet Zechariah? Zechariah had a vision in the temple from a messenger sent by God. What was the message and what resulted from Zechariah’s hasty response to the heavenly messenger? Do you believe in visions? Come and meet Zechariah and hear of his vision and the long-awaited answer to a prayer that he and his wife Elizabeth had prayed for many, many years. It is a remarkable story of heavenly proportion!
