Baptized By God

At that time Jesus came from Nazareth in Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan. Mark 1:9

John the Baptist was sent by God to be the messenger to pave the way for the Messiah Jesus. These events were remarkable because it confirmed who Jesus is and would begin his ministry which would change the world and God as we knew them.

Just as Jesus was coming up out of the water, he saw heaven being torn open and the Spirit descending on him like a dove.  Mark 1:10

Jesus wanted John to baptize him even though John knew he was not even worthy to untie his sandal straps. But Jesus instantly showed his humility and willingness to be a servant. An amazing event then happens as The Holy Spirit descended on Jesus from Heaven.

We must remember that Jesus was just human at this point, so the power of God filled him thru the Holy Spirit to empower him with great wisdom and perform miracles.

And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.” Mark 1:11

And then shortly another critical event happened, where our Heavenly Father, God himself, declared Jesus the Son of God. This is a very significant event that was witnessed by many people including the prophet John The Baptist.

Many will deny Jesus as the Messiah or The Son of God, but these events have confirmed what all Christians believe that Jesus is The Great I AM, The King of Kings, and Lord of Lords. Reflect on these words and allow the Holy Spirit into your heart in Jesus Name Amen
