Luke 1:76-79

" And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him,

to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins,

because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven

to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace."

Luke 2:28-32

" Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:

"Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you now dismiss your servant in peace.

For my eyes have seen your salvation,

which you have prepared in the sight of all people,

a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel."

Isaiah 9:2

" The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned. "

3.SURPRISE

The birth of the Lord Jesus Christ brought surprises to His people. Zechariah was not expecting to see an angel but the Lord sent him a pleasant surprise with the good news that he would have a son even though he and his wife were already old. Mary was not expecting an angelic visit , much less that she would be the mother of the Messiah. But the Lord had a wonderful surprise for her and elevated her status in life. The Lord has surprises for us too and his blessings can come when we least expect it . The Lord can deliver us from our trials and tribulations in such a sudden and astonishing way that it may look like a dream for us.

Luke 1:11-12 ,29-30

"Then an angel of the Lord appeared to him, standing at the right side of the altar of incense.

When Zechariah saw him, he was startled and was gripped with fear. "

" Mary was greatly troubled at his words and wondered what kind of greeting this might be.

But the angel said to her, "Do not be afraid, Mary, you have found favor with God."

Luke 2:9-10

" An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified.

But the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. "

Psalm 126:1-2

" When the LORD brought back the captives to Zion, we were like men who dreamed.

Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them."

Acts 12:1-11

" It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them.

He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword.

When he saw that this pleased the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Feast of Unleavened Bread.

After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover.

So Peter was kept in prison, but the church was earnestly praying to God for him.

The night before Herod was to bring him to trial, Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains, and sentries stood guard at the entrance.

Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. "Quick, get up!" he said, and the chains fell off Peter’s wrists.
