Daily Readings and Thought for March 10th. “THAT WE SHOULD BE SAVED FROM OUR ENEMIES”


Today we began reading Luke’s Gospel.  The father of John the Baptist is inspired by the Holy Spirit to say, “you child will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways.” [v.76].  He speaks of “a horn of salvation” that God “has raised up” [v.69] “that we should be saved from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us” [v.71]. Now this was not fulfilled in the First Century because the nation rejected their ‘horn of salvation.”  

These words still have to be fulfilled!    The scene in the Middle East today appears to be ‘setting the stage’ for Christ to return and fulfil these words and establish his kingdom and so fulfil the rest of the words Zechariah was inspired by the Holy Spirit to say – “that we, being delivered from the hand of our enemies, might serve him without fear, in holiness and righteousness …” [v.74,75] 

That time may be very near as the enemies that surround God’s land and others nearby now sense they have the support of the majority of nations, and the apathy of others, in their hatred of Israel. We see the abject weakness of the United Nations and its inability to take any ‘righteous’ action. 

Those who have a sure faith in God’s word note Mary’s words in magnifying the Lord, “his mercy is for those who fear him” but “he has scattered the proud in the thoughts of their hearts” [v.50,51]  Let all who truly believe  and fear God look for his mercy and guidance as our world plunges into distress and darkness and is completely oblivious to the “light of the world” that is about to shine forth.
