Are You Ready?

John the Baptist appeared in the wilderness preaching a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. Mark 1:4

Picture this, a man wearing clothes made of camel hair and living off of locusts and wild honey, is standing outside the great city of Jerusalem yelling to people to “Repent for the Kingdom of God is at hand” (Matthew 3:2)

Many people probably thought he was crazy, yet Jesus calls John the “greatest of all prophets” (Mathew 11:11) Others listened to his message, repented of their sins, and was “baptized” in the Jordan River awaiting the arrival of the Christ, the Son of God

Imagine John doing this in todays society? Imagine him standing outside of Manhattan , yelling for people to repent of their Sins. The Liberals and LGTBQ groups are all offended, they have him arrested for a hate crime speaking the Word of God. The media calls John a bigot , a racist, some even declare him a terrorist because his free speech is not considered acceptable.

And he was preaching, and saying, “After me One is coming who is mightier than I, and I am not fit to stoop down and untie the thong of His sandals. Mark 1:7

But regardless of any of this, John states there is one greater coming than him who hes not even worthy to tie his shoe. John is the fulfillment of the prophecy in Isaiah , the messenger to prepare the way for The Lord.

How do we prepare for the coming of The Lord? We repent of our sins, we wash our iniquities away. Jesus is coming again soon, Are You Ready?

    Facebook is filled with a lot of angry people over one political thing or another but I saw something that really made me think. It was a reflection to NY passing the abortion bill but it was a picture of John in the womb and Jesus in the womb showing how even as forming child, John knew he was in Jesus’s presence. It made you think about that moment when he jumped for joy in the womb.

    The Word of God is very clear…you are either for Christ or you are an anti-christ!
    Nobody is as great as our God!
    When some people put themselves above His Ways they are promoting a false doctrine and leading many astray! WOE to them!
    Part of being ready for Jesus’ return is making sure we are still carrying the message of Hope to the Lost! He wants them ready too!

    Shalom brother! ❤
