Jesus was born five months after John and while Jesus was born of an immaculate conception, John was also conceived in a miraculous way. You see, John's mother, Elizabeth was barren and at the time of his birth she was elderly. Yet God chose this other miracle to identify him as someone of the Spirit, born to be the "advance man" for His Savior, who was also his cousin and of the lineage of the House of David.
There could no better way to buttress the story of the birth of Christ than by adding this miraculous man to the equation, for nothing that happens on God's earth is a coincidence; all the pieces of the puzzle were put together by God for a reason. It is up to us to study and ponder to realize what that is. For some it comes easily, for others with much difficulty, but when faith is applied to these things that have happened, the fog is finally lifted from our eyes.
I hope you will join us. The show was recorded earlier today and is now available 24/7 as part of the December month long celebration of the birthday of Jesus Christ by Sunday Morning Coming Down and our other shows on North Florida Writer Live. We will also have some appropriate music, including the great song for which our weekend show is named, a Christmas carol and a special song about how important realizing that Jesus Christ is the One we are supposed to be celebrating.

It's Christmastime. Praise His Holy Name. God bless.
