“Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for He hath visited and redeemed His people. And hath raised up an horn of Salvation for us in the house of His servant David.” (Luke 1:68-69)



“For mine eyes have seen Thy salvation, which Thou hast prepared before the face of all people.” (Luke 2:30-31)



The first verse was quoted by Zacharias, as he prophesied concerning John the Baptist, of that “horn of salvation” that would come forth as expression of “the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us, to give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace.” (Luke 1:77-78) It was not fully fulfilled in his son John, who but prepared the way for The Christ, but it finds its fulfillment in our Redeemer, and shall also find fulfillment’s expression through that whole anointed son-company of whom He is the Head.



The salvation of the Lord is not only an experience, it is that, true, but it is also personified, first and foremost in the personage of our Lord Jesus Christ, and then in His many-membered-body, for it is prophesied that “saviours shall come up on mount Zion to judge the mount of Esau; and the kingdom shall be the Lord’s.” (Obadiah 21) “Enoch also, the seventh from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Lo, the Lord cometh in holy myriads of Himself.” (Jude 14, Literal)



God is preparing a SALVATION COMPANY! It staggers the imagination, and beggars all description – a calling so holy, so high, so heavenly. Yet it is His working all the way, and “Faithful is He that calleth you, who also will do it.” (1 Thess. 5:24)



Hasten, O Horn of Salvation –

Light to the nations to give,

The knowledge of full deliv’rance

Till all men in Christ shall live.
