Elisabeth Bible Story
Once there was a woman named Elisabeth. She and her husband
Zacharias, asked God to give them children, but they never had any.
When they grew old, an angel came to give Zacharias a message. He
said, Your prayer has been heard. You will have a son and you shall
name him John. He will tell many people about God. Zacharias said,
How do I know this is true? My wife and I are both old. The angel
said, my name is Gabriel and God sent me to tell you this great news.
But, because you don't believe my words, you will not be able to
speak until the child is born.
Then Gabriel was sent to a city named Nazareth to a young woman named
Mary, who was Elisabeth's cousin. Mary loved a man named Joseph and
was going to marry him soon. Gabriel told Mary, the Lord is with you,
and you are blessed among women. You will have a son and you shall
call Him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the
Highest. And His kingdom will never end. Mary said to Gabriel, how
can this be? I am not married yet. Gabriel answered, The Holy Spirit
will make this child in you and He will be called the Son of God.
Gabriel told Mary, Your cousin Elisabeth, is going to have a baby
too. With God, nothing is impossible. Mary said, I am a servant of
the Lord. Let it happen to me, just as you have said. Then the angel
Gabriel left her.
Mary hurried to visit Elisabeth, and when Elisabeth heard Mary's
voice, the baby moved inside of her and she was filled with the Holy
Spirit. Mary said, God has done great things for me. Mary stayed with
Elisabeth for three months and then went home. When Elisabeth's baby
was born, people thought they should name him after his dad, but
Elisabeth said, No, his name will be John. Now, Zacharias still could
not speak, so he wrote, His name is John. All of a sudden, he could
speak again, just as the angel Gabriel had told him. Everyone that
heard, was surprised and Zacharias said, Blessed be the Lord God.
There is a force out there that is attempting to overtake us all; it is Satan. There is another force that is protecting us from him; it is the Holy Spirit. It is a battle for souls. This battle is called Spiritual Warfare, and like it or not, you are right in the middle of it.
