“Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, because he has come to his people and redeemed them. He has raised up a horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David (as He said through His holy prophets of long ago), salvation from our enemies and from the hand of all who hate us— to show mercy to our ancestors and to remember his holy covenant, the oath he swore to our father Abraham"
From the very beginning, a divine master plan has been unfolding to prepare the world for a Savior who will transform man’s sinful condition. God’s instrument in this plan is a relatively obscure man by the name of Abraham. He makes an extraordinary covenant with this faithful servant, promising him that his descendants would become a great nation, He would give them a land of their own, and that through his seed all the people of the earth would be blessed. The third promise had remained unfulfilled for over 2000 years. All is now ready for the most important event in human history. It will mark the beginning of a dynamically new relationship between God and man. And so we have the fulfillment of the Third Promise……..the event is the coming of the Savior of the world, the MESSIAH!
