THE WORD FOR TODAY Friday 21.12.2018

I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him,
but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob,
and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel,
and shall smite the corners of Moab,
and destroy all the children of Sheth.

Num. 24:17

And the angel came in unto her, and said,
Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord
is with thee: blessed art thou among women.
And when she saw him, she was troubled at his
saying, and cast in her mind what manner of
salutation this should be.
And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary:
for thou hast found favour with God.
And, behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb,
and bring forth a son, and shalt call
his name JESUS.
He shall be great, and shall be called
the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God
shall give unto him the throne of
his father David: And he shall reign
over the house of Jacob for ever;
and of his kingdom there shall be no end.

Luke 1:28-33
