God is preparing us. Today on Frances and Friends, Sister Swaggart and panel read from Luke 1:76-79, looking at Zechariah’s prophesy about John the Baptist. He was to go before the Lord, to prepare the way for the Savior to come. This is what the Lord is doing today with every one of us, as He wants us to be prepared for salvation and continually there after. John the Baptist gave the statement that is the ongoing message and hope for the world today, “behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world”. In Luke 1:77, we see the gift of knowledge of salvation for the remission of sin; Brother Smith says when this happens, we will find our turmoil turned to peace. It’s a hope that everyone can have when they say yes to Christ. The panel also addresses the many questions about the pagan roots of Christmas.
