Yesterday in Sunday school John’s Birth was predicted.
While Zechariah was offering incense to God in the temple, an angel appeared and told Zechariah that he would have a son, and the boy’s name would be John. The angel told Zechariah that God’s Spirit would be with John. John would get people ready for the Lord’s coming and turn them back to God.
Compare Malachi 4:5-6 to Luke 1:16-17. God had big plans for the baby who wasn’t even born yet. God sent John to be the last prophet who would tell people about the coming Savior. John’s job was to remind the people what God had said in the past and to get the people ready to meet Jesus.

Luke 1:76-77 "And you, child, will be called the prophet of the Most High; for you will go before the Lord to prepare his ways, to give knowledge of salvation to his people in the forgiveness of their sins."
