God has established a pattern of breaking into our human world. He ‘s done it many times in the Old Testament era and was about to do it one more time in a significant manner by bringing the Messiah into the world. But as foretold by Malachi God sent a forerunner John the Baptist to prepare the way for Jesus Christ. We learn some important spiritual lessons by following the story of the angel ‘s visit to Zechariah to announce the next major move of God in the world. (Luke 1:5-25)
