Mary and Elizabeth and the Word
The Angel Gabriel informed Mary that her cousin Elizabeth was six months pregnant, so Mary journeyed to visit with Elizabeth. When Mary greeted Elizabeth, Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit, and her baby moved with joy within her womb. Elizabeth proclaimed that Mary was blessed, and that she was the mother of her Lord. She also said to Mary;
“And blessed is she who believed that there would be a fulfillment of what had been spoken to her by the Lord.”
With the belief of Mary to the word of God, the Father in Heaven was prepared to implement his plan of salvation for all of mankind. Moreover, through scripture we know God was not only the engineer of our salvation, but also the administrator.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us. And we beheld his glory, glory as of the only begotten from the Father, full of grace and truth.
– John 1:1, 2, 14
Just as man is made in the image and likeness of God, body, soul, and spirit, God has made himself known to man in three forms, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Theoretically, as we know man to be of three separate forms but still only one person, through scripture we realize the same principle in God. We are brought to the knowledge that Jesus was God incarnate. Jesus told us to seek such wisdom when he said;
“If you abide in my word, then you are truly disciples of mine, and you shall know the truth. And the truth shall make you free.”
– John 8:31, 32
