Then the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God. And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bring forth a Son, and shall call His name Jesus. He will be great, and will be called the Son of the Highest, and the Lord God will give Him the throne of His father David. And He will reign over the house of Jacob forever, and of His kingdom there will be no end.”
For Mary had found favor with God, and was told by the angel that she would bring forth a son, Jesus being sent by God, and Who would be Savior of His people. The name Jesus is a Greek form of the Hebrew name Joshua which meant “the Lord saves”. And in the name of Jesus people were healed and the blind had sight and the deaf heard again and people were saved of their sins. Many years earlier God told King David that his kingdom would last forever. This promise was fulfilled in Jesus He will be called Son of the Highest by being the eternal Son of God from all eternity. And He will be the Messiah, whose throne and kingdom had been given to Him by His Father, the Lord God.
Be blessed in Him and walk in His strength!!
Therefore Go! (and make disciples of all nations)
