Meet John The Baptist


Many of us read the book of John, not knowing the reason why, the reason, or who John even the purpose of the book actually is about? However, the book of John is for our learning to know one; what one must to to inherit eternal life. Two, why John came and baptized in the wilderness. And three; Who John really is? Even it these were questions, it would be to asked them. We must remember one thing, that John was not named by his parents.
This alone is enough information to pay attention to this man, John even have four books within the scriptures, and based on this man’s name, and who named him: The Most High God.
Luke 1:13 AV 1873
13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
This angel told his father Zacharias, that his wife in her old age was going to have a child: a son. His name is going to be called John: Why? We know through functions, Yahawashi means salvation, for good reason, to save you from this guy outcome: Yeah, John. Don’t make sense do it? However, it’s a oxymoron:
John is not the bad guy, but the message he represents could be seen as one if you clearly don’t know who John is and the jealousy of God is why he was sent. Think about this:
Ref: Deut 4:24: Upfront, being told to us that our God is a jealous God. In fact to the point of this
Ref: Deuteronomy 6:15: Making Him Jealous, and his anger is kindled just a little, this can get you killed, not just in this life, but in the life to come. The same as you give your wife or husband warnings, your children warnings, this is the same here from TMH God.
You give your children a message: To do this again...........? The same with God. We know God is spirit, and we cannot physically see Him, but we can see His works. the same as what He did with Yahawashi and even told Philip
John 14:7 AV 1873
7 If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth ye know him, and have seen him.
Yahawashi was in the image, not God but the works he do is of God, for the spirit of God is in Him.
Ref: Col 1:15: Making Him the image of the invisible, now visible. You couldn’t see it, now you can, and when you truly see God, you too can say
Ref: Luke 2:29-30 } 29: You gave your body as a living sacrifice, you can now Depart, Depart? Did he say die? No, the scriptures says, He should not see death, this is the first, however, he wasn’t going to die at that point. The scriptures never tells you his age, or anything.
The only thing you see is, “he will not see death until he have seen the Lord’s Christ.” He can now depart = put away, remove, turn aside. [Ref: Jer 32:40 TMH God will make a covenant with Israel, and put His fear in our hearts, so we will not “put away, or turn aside” from Him. Simon is not saying to die according to his time on earth, but put away his fleshly ways. He can now put away that old man
Luke 2:30: For he have physically seen TMH God salvation. Yahawashi means what TMH God is offering from what he is going to do to the earth
Jeremiah 15:1–3 AV 1873
1 Then said the Lord unto me, Though Moses and Samuel stood before me, yet my mind could not be toward this people: cast them out of my sight, and let them go forth. 2 And it shall come to pass, if they say unto thee, Whither shall we go forth? then thou shalt tell them, Thus saith the Lord; Such as are for death, to death; and such as are for the sword, to the sword; and such as are for the famine, to the famine; and such as are for the captivity, to the captivity. 3 And I will appoint over them four kinds, saith the Lord: the sword to slay, and the dogs to tear, and the fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the earth, to devour and destroy.
1: Moses and Samuel stood before God, Still God’s mind could not be towards this people: Israel, for they are flesh, doing fleshly things. So let the go forth, and here’s why, with Moses: [Ref: Deuteronomy 30:19 Heaven and earth is recording this day against you and me. [Ref: Deuteronomy 31:28-29 }28: Even Moses gathered the elders and others to tell you as today. To remind you that heaven and earth is record against you.
29: Moses even knew, that after his death, the same here, many will corrupt themselves, and provoke TMH God anger. Things of the flesh is to great for many to defend against, and will fall to sin. So go forth:
2: Things are going to be from death to another death. Using the truth, the word of God. Again, we will have famine to famine. [Ref: Revelation 12:15 Satan also cast out of his mouth knowledge, as a doctrine, giving you spiritual food that is not spiritual food. You are going to actually starve the spirit feeding your flesh by satan. How will satan pull this off: Ref: Ezekiel 16:24-25 He has and been Building churches and gathering places all over the world to carry you away with a doctrine of lies to feed you with doctrine to kill your spirit.] So you can have this death to the second death, or as satan love to say [Ref: Job 2:4 skin for skin, a man will pay whatever price needed to save this life here, but end up losing eternal life.] The sword is not trusted, you see people googling everything for doctrine, and we being fools sit there as if they are giving us some truth.
These will go into captivity by God [Ref: Jude 6 these messengers left their first estate , his habitation of conditions from God when He save us from the house of bondage, now being freed from one captivity, and go into another captivity. ]
3: For this reason alone, TMH God has appointed four kinds. Four kinds of what? To destroy us from off the earth. the first one is the Word, the truth is going to assist in this effort of God’s. Two: Dogs, who? [Ref: Rev 22:15 for all without the understanding and did them according to the flesh, are dogs, who, if you are doing things according to the flesh, Need I say more? Ref: Matthew 15:26 it is not Meet = Right to take children’s bread, and cast to dogs......] Three: The fowls and the beast here can have whats left.
Deuteronomy 1:43 AV 1873
43 So I spake unto you; and you would not hear, but rebelled against the commandment of the Lord, and went presumptuously up into the hill.
The main reason is we as a people rebelled against God, even when He told us not to fight with our enemies at that time. But no, we bad now and went. Presumptuously = Proudly, you see us doing this today. Someone say to you: How are you today? and you say, Blessed and highly favored. Doing everything against God, destroying ourselves. So God made away of some, not all;
2 Esdras 8:1 AV 1873
1 And he answered me, saying, The most High hath made this world for many, but the world to come for few.
This current world was made for many, however, the world to come is not. You have Christians today committing then change laws to justify themselves:
Ref: Zec 11:5 } They whole all the cards in this world, and do wrong. You can catch them in the very act, and they will hold themselves not guilty, on a technicality. And first thing they will say, is Blessed be the LORD. The world to come is not for them, or their followers of that doctrine. He give the same thing back then and moved it up;

God sending Jesus again

Deuteronomy 18:18–19 AV 1873
18 I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. 19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.
18: This prophet is going to be just like Moses, using the words of God, seeking to save some of us from the wrath coming.
Ref: Matt 4:17 } Telling us to Remember, salvation is at hand. He is gathering us a little chickens
Ref: 2 Esdras 1:30 | Matthew 23:37 Esdras have spoken this, and Yahawashi have, because destruction is coming. So if you do want to listen, you will have a problem:
19: This is not a choice, but TMH God is tired of doing the same thing: Ref: Baruch 4:28-29: 28 We good for going astray, good for doing things another way and not hearken to the voice of God. He say left we say right. 29: Again, he brought salvation unto us, and what we do with it?
Numbers 14:22 AV 1873
22 Because all those men which have seen my glory, and my miracles, which I did in Egypt and in the wilderness, and have tempted me now these ten times, and have not hearkened to my voice;
You have seen His salvation as Simon, you have seen His glory. We are in the wilderness, and continue to tempt God
Ref: Matt 4:7 It is written AGAIN, Do not tempt the Lord thy God! Do we obey His voice? No, we are our own worse enemy, changing everything from Holy days and assemblies: And God says;
Amos 5:21 AV 1873
21 I hate, I despise your feast days, And I will not smell in your solemn assemblies.
You now are calling shots, God said He hate Your ours feast days, and our assemblies, but we do them, and continue to.
Ref: Ex 32:26 } As with Moses, Who is on the LORD’S side.
Ref: Matthew 12:50 } As Yahawashi, who ever is doing to the will of his Father in heaven. All on this side come to him, and all on the other side all hell is getting ready to break loose. Is why Yahawashi prayed
Ref: John 17:9-10 } 9: He pray for them, why? The destruction that is coming, because this is not going to be nice. Just cover the ones belong to God, and not for the others.
Matthew 24:20–21 AV 1873
20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: 21 for then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
20: Salvation is telling us this is not going to be pretty.
21: A great tribulation, worse in history, Sodom: worse, Adam, worse, you name it, Worse. He’s sending a message to each and every one of us.

What about this John guy He Sent?

So what about John, and who is he, and why did TMH God name him? First I wanted you to see what we are doing to God, and not God to us. 2) The pure disobedience we have towards God as a whole. Remember, we all are together on this, but in the end he will do the separating, remember to do your part.
John 1:6–7 AV 1873
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
6: This man sent from God who was John, meaning what? John = Yahawah has been gracious, has graciously given. given what? chances to get right, chances to remember the wrong we are doing.
Ref: Mal 1:2-3} 2: is not Esau the brother of Jacob? Yes. But TMH God loved Jacob and not Esau 3: I hated Esau. But we questioned TMH God even here. He have been gracious, and graciously given it.
Ref: Ex 33:19 } God will be gracious to who He wants’ from this point out to who He wants
John is the visitation message
2 Esdras 1:25 AV 1873
25 Seeing ye have forsaken me, I will forsake you also; when ye desire me to be gracious unto you, I shall have no mercy upon you.
We have forsaken TMH God. So what do forsaken actually mean? Forsaken = Abandonment, or rejection. Meaning one’s covenant responsibility that we have abandon and some have completely rejected. But you feel you can go and come as you please with the covenant, TMH God righteously can be gracious to whom he want and have mercy on whom He feels:
Romans 9:14–15 AV 1873
14 What shall we say then? Is there unrighteousness with God? God forbid. 15 For he saith to Moses, I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
14: We have forsaken His covenant, is there unrighteous in God? We acts as fools and treated the covenant as trash, Is God unrighteous? Quick to point fingers at another in the book who did wrong, and figure you can also. For that reason alone, God righteously can forsake us,
15: including to have no mercy on us. No compassion in doing so. Feel passion with sympathy into ones sorrow or pain.
Ref: Proverbs 1:26 } He is going to enjoy doing these things to you, why?
John 1:6 AV 1873
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
He sent a message; John = Yahawah has been gracious, has graciously given. We have taken His kindness for weakness, and His compassion as stupidity. His mercy as trash. So God will have mercy on who He will have mercy. Meaning this
1 Peter 4:18 AV 1873
18 And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?
That the question of questions? If the righteous scarcely be saved, don’t even think about the ungodly or a sinner. He sent the message rapped in flesh: John, the same issue they had back then and the people wondered why they even pick the name? So let’s get all the history on John

The conceiving of John

Luke 1:5–45 AV 1873
5 There was in the days of Herod, the king of Judea, a certain priest named Zacharias, of the course of Abia: and his wife was of the daughters of Aaron, and her name was Elisabeth. 6 And they were both righteous before God, walking in all the commandments and ordinances of the Lord blameless. 7 And they had no child, because that Elisabeth was barren, and they both were now well stricken in years. 8 And it came to pass, that while he executed the priest’s office before God in the order of his course, 9 according to the custom of the priest’s office, his lot was to burn incense when he went into the temple of the Lord. 10 And the whole multitude of the people were praying without at the time of incense. 11 And there appeared unto him an angel of the Lord standing on the right side of the altar of incense. 12 And when Zacharias saw him, he was troubled, and fear fell upon him. 13 But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: for thy prayer is heard; and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John. 14 And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth. 15 For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother’s womb. 16 And many of the children of Israel shall he turn to the Lord their God. 17 And he shall go before him in the spirit and power of Elias, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to the wisdom of the just; to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. 18 And Zacharias said unto the angel, Whereby shall I know this? for I am an old man, and my wife well stricken in years. 19 And the angel answering said unto him, I am Gabriel, that stand in the presence of God; and am sent to speak unto thee, and to shew thee these glad tidings. 20 And behold, thou shalt be dumb, and not able to speak, until the day that these things shall be performed, because thou believest not my words, which shall be fulfilled in their season. 21 And the people waited for Zacharias, and marvelled that he tarried so long in the temple. 22 And when he came out, he could not speak unto them: and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple: for he beckoned unto them, and remained speechless. 23 And it came to pass that, as soon as the days of his ministration were accomplished, he departed to his own house. 24 And after those days his wife Elisabeth conceived, and hid herself five months, saying, 25 Thus hath the Lord dealt with me in the days wherein he looked on me, to take away my reproach among men. 26 And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth, 27 to a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David; and the virgin’s name was Mary. 28 And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. 29 And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. 30 And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou hast found favour with God. 31 And behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and bring forth a son, and shalt call his name JESUS. 32 He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David: 33 and he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of his kingdom there shall be no end. 34 Then said Mary unto the angel, How shall this be, seeing I know not a man? 35 And the angel answered and said unto her, The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee, and the power of the Highest shall overshadow thee: therefore also that holy thing which shall be born of thee shall be called the Son of God. 36 And behold, thy cousin Elisabeth, she hath also conceived a son in her old age: and this is the sixth month with her, who was called barren. 37 For with God nothing shall be unpossible. 38 And Mary said, Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it unto me according to thy word. And the angel departed from her. 39 And Mary arose in those days, and went into the hill country with haste, into a city of Juda; 40 and entered into the house of Zacharias, and saluted Elisabeth. 41 And it came to pass that, when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the babe leaped in her womb; and Elisabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost: 42 and she spake out with a loud voice, and said, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. 43 And whence is this to me, that the mother of my Lord should come to me? 44 For lo, as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in mine ears, the babe leaped in my womb for joy. 45 And blessed is she that believed: for there shall be a performance of those things which were told her from the Lord.
5: John’s father name was Zacharias, a priest, and his mother ‘s name was Elisabeth. Elisabeth was from the daughters of Aaron the Levites
6: Zacharias and Elisabeth were both righteous and walking in all the commandments and the works of God blameless
7: However, they had no children, including Elisabeth was barren and had no children. Both was well stricken in years.
8: However, Zacharias was performing his duties
10: And as the people were outside praying,
11: A angel of the Lord appeared.
12: Zacharias was troubled, and was scared, these visitations will do just that
13: No worries, your prayer, not prayers is heard, and your wife shall bear a son. And you guys will call his name John.
14: Many will rejoice and many are not going to rejoice. It do not say all will rejoice
15: He shall not drink neither strong drink, or wine; Because he will be filled with the Holy Ghost at all times, even from his birth.
16: Many not all will turn to God [Ref: John 1:11-12 He came to his own and many didn’t receive him.]
17: The spirit and power of Elias = Shall go before him in the spirit and power of “My God is the LORD”. To change the hearts of the fathers of the children of the disobedient to the wisdom of the just. To make the ready!
18: Zacharias is old, however, the angel is going to give you some serious information
19: He is Gabriel = it can be spiritual or in the carnal. Foundational is, He is the “man of God” is what Gabriel means foundational sense.
20: However, remember, you are going to be as one dumb, and not able to speak for the very reason you did not believe my words.
21: Comment
22: When Zacharias came out of the temple, he was unable to speak
23: But when his ministration were done, he departed
24: And after Elisabeth conceived, It do not say Zacharias went into his wife. I’m also going somewhere.
25: Now she saying the Lord has looked upon her, and taken away her reproach among men.
26: In the six month, the man of God, Gabriel was then sent to another woman,
27: Marry who was espoused to Joseph, of the house of David, from the tribe of Judah. Stay with me and don’t get lost in the mix.
28: Wisdom is given to you among women, you are highly favoured.
29: Again, this is a visitation, and as I say, even she was troubled at this, and wondered at this visit. Hail is the Greetings, and she needed to know.
30: The same as Zacharias, he said, fear not, you have favour with God.
31: Remember, you are going to conceive in your womb and bring forth a son. Call his name JESUS = Salvation. So we have John = Yahawah has been gracious, has graciously given, and now JESUS = who is Salvation.
32: This son will be given the throne of his father David, from the tribe of Judah, keep that in your head. Joseph is from the same house [ You see that in verse 27], but watch this
34: Here’s the million dollar question? I know not a man?
35: The same as John, watch. The Holy Ghost shall come upon thee....... What about John? [Verse 15-16 The Holy Ghost was upon him also, even from His mother’s womb]. Here’s the hammer
36: The angel said this, Remember; Your Cousin Elisabeth, from the house of Aaron who is a Levite. And her father was a Levite as Elisabeth father. But it get better, she was in her six month who people called barren
37: There is nothing UNPOSSIBLE with God? UNPOSSIBLE? Some will say, Impossible or switch it.
38: So Marry said this, Be to me according to thy word! The same with her cousin, is the same with her. Stay with me.
39: Mary with into the hill country with haste = with swiftness into the city even where Joseph is, who is part of Juda; she entered into the house of Zacharias
40: And greeted Elisabeth
41: And it came to pass when Elisabeth heard the salutation of Mary, John leaped in her womb [Ref: Wisdom 18:15 The word of God went into Elisabeth], And then she was filled with he Holy Ghost. But watch
42: Elisabeth say to Mary, Wisdom is given to Mary among women is in the fruit of her womb. AND
43: why would the mother come to her?
45: What this: which is the wisdom is given to them. Let’s Fast forward some to the birth
Luke 1:57–80 AV 1873
57 Now Elisabeth’s full time came that she should be delivered; and she brought forth a son. 58 And her neighbours and her cousins heard how the Lord had shewed great mercy upon her; and they rejoiced with her. 59 And it came to pass, that on the eighth day they came to circumcise the child; and they called him Zacharias, after the name of his father. 60 And his mother answered and said, Not so; but he shall be called John. 61 And they said unto her, There is none of thy kindred that is called by this name. 62 And they made signs to his father, how he would have him called. 63 And he asked for a writing table, and wrote, saying, His name is John. And they marvelled all. 64 And his mouth was opened immediately, and his tongue loosed, and he spake, and praised God. 65 And fear came on all that dwelt round about them: and all these sayings were noised abroad throughout all the hill country of Judea. 66 And all they that heard them laid them up in their hearts, saying, What manner of child shall this be! And the hand of the Lord was with him. 67 And his father Zacharias was filled with the Holy Ghost, and prophesied, saying, 68 Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; For he hath visited and redeemed his people, 69 And hath raised up a horn of salvation for us In the house of his servant David; 70 (As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, Which have been since the world began:) 71 That we should be saved from our enemies, And from the hand of all that hate us; 72 To perform the mercy promised to our fathers, And to remember his holy covenant; 73 The oath which he sware to our father Abraham, 74 That he would grant unto us, that we being delivered out of the hand of our enemies Might serve him without fear, 75 In holiness and righteousness before him, All the days of our life. 76 And thou, child, shalt be called the prophet of the Highest: For thou shalt go before the face of the Lord To prepare his ways; 77 To give knowledge of salvation unto his people By the remission of their sins, 78 Through the tender mercy of our God; Whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us, 79 To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, To guide our feet into the way of peace. 80 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, and was in the deserts till the day of his shewing unto Israel.
57: Fast forward, She brought forth this child, and
58: Elisabeth cousins heard how the Lord showed love upon her to have a child
59: After the eight day, according to the customs of the Jews, the male child is circumcised, an given a name. And they called him by name after his father, Zacharias.
60: The father is still unable to speak, and the mother said His name will be called John = Yahawah has been gracious, has graciously given
61: Her cousins told her, they have no kindred with that name, including making such a statement as [Yahawah has been gracious, has graciously given
62: So they made signs for Zacharias to see what the child name would be.
63: Again, this time by the father, His name is John = Yahawah has been gracious, has graciously given.
64: Then he was able to speak
65: these sayings were nosied abroad throughout the country!! Because why would you name a child with that name?
66: What kind of child this to be, why would they name this child “Yahawah Has been gracious.” However, the hand of TMH was on this child.
67: Comment
68: Wisdom was given by TMH God of Israel, for he has visited and REDEEMED his people, they are already chosen. Problem, with Israel, and a big one. This is already done [Ref: Isaiah 26:13-14 }13 These had other lords over them, however, Only we will make mention, of His name. 14: these people are dead, and will not be part of the world to come.]
Ref: Mark 12:25 } We have rise from the dead, and neither marry nor given in marriage. Not join ourselves to these whore houses, churches, camps, communities. These people of God are redeemed already.
70: As he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets, which has been since the world began. It gets better
71: We that are truly awaken will endure some things, however, we will be saved from our enemies.
72: With the oath TMH sware to our fathers, the ones that remembered the covenant.
73: Which was swore to our father Abraham
74: To Serve God, to serve is letting you know we will be servants to TMH God.
75: In all righteousness and in holiness
76: And John, will be called a prophet of the Highest, and He will prepare the way. How?
77: To give knowledge of salvation unto his people. Not bowing down to a preacher, giving Him money. That again is trying to pay your way to salvation. Is that knowledge? No. Serving a man? Now you see the stupidity? Is what those men giving you knowledge? We are to give you knowledge of what you need to do. Stop sending email on how to celebrate this or that. First learn besides trying to get to the party.
78: He has made the visit, we need to get right with God
79: Many of us use to sit in darkness, and now released from the darkness of sin and death, to guide you to TMH God himself. By telling you the way, and to let TMH God be your guide.
80: And this John grew, and was seriously strong in spirit. Showing these things to Israel. Now as John was in the desert, Jews sent priest and Levites to him
John 1:19–28 AV 1873
19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou? 20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ. 21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No. 22 Then said they unto him, Who art thou? that we may give an answer to them that sent us. What sayest thou of thyself? 23 He said, I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord, as said the prophet Esaias. 24 And they which were sent were of the Pharisees. 25 And they asked him, and said unto him, Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither that prophet? 26 John answered them, saying, I baptize with water: but there standeth one among you, whom ye know not; 27 he it is, who coming after me is preferred before me, whose shoe’s latchet I am not worthy to unloose. 28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond Jordan, where John was baptizing.
19: This is the back drop on John. His name was John = Yahawah has been gracious, has graciously given. And the Jews wanted to know who in the world is this man?
20: Now John confess, and did not denied, but confess of one thing; That he is not the Anointed one you are looking for?
21: Are you not saying “My God is the LORD?” No He didn’t say that either, you guys are saying that. It says, He will come in the power of My God, Remember [Ref: Malachi 4:5 Before coming, He will send Elijah]
Okay, what about, That prophet Moses spoke of (Ref: Deuteronomy 18:18)? Nope, not him either!
22: Okay, Who in the world are you then, we need to go back and tell them that sent us who you say you are?
23: I am the voice in crying in the wilderness [Ref: Genesis 3:8-9], the same Voice [John = Yahawah has been gracious, has graciously given. : Isaiah 40:3 in the desert, in the wilderness, to make straight the way of TMH God]
Esaias = Yahawah’s helper! I’m out! Now I see why you are, I’m gone! This is the same spirit that was in those men, is in this man!
Ref: 1 Corinthians 12:4-6 } 4: I am here to do a job, the same spirit, but diversities in the gift given to me. 5: There is differences of administrations, as John came to do, but the same Lord. 6: His operation is to do is the get these people prepared, period! But this is by the same God!
24: Remember, these people that were sent was Pharisees, and trying to see why this man carrying so much weight of doing what He was doing.
25: So they asked him, Why condemn people then? You are not Christ, neither Elias = My God is LORD, not even that Prophet? Common sense would explain his name: John = Yahawah has been gracious, has graciously given. So he is bringing us a message:
26: He’s condemning us with the knowledge of sin. For example: [Ref: Mal 3:8 Will a man rob God? However, God is saying we have, and we say where? in tithes and offerings.
Ref: Ps 50:9-11 } 9: TMH God said, take no bullock out of his house; period! 10: Here’s the reason, These are his. 11: The fowls are God’s
Ref: Haggai 2:8 } The money is God’s
Ref: Ezekiel 18:4 } Even the souls are God’s. So did you rob God? 100%. God said
Ref: Hebrews 10:5 } He said, when He come into and visit you, give the offer many will not, but your body
Ref: Romans 12:1 } That why Paul says, I speak to them that know the law [Ref: Gal 3:24-25 This is our schoolmaster to understand the difference, and not be a thief. A thief will die.
However, with the knowledge given, there is one here right now, and don’t even know who he is. If you go down to verse 29: you will see, then the next day, Yahawashi returned. But right then they didn’t know who the anointed one was, and He was right there. You don’t know who you are entertaining do you?
27: This one, John say, Even his shoe’s latchet, he’s not worthy to even unloose
28: This was done in the “House of passage” = Bethabara = beth-ab-a-ra
It’s more to John, however, you see now John came to do a work as many of us. In the wilderness, some would say, What about them on the street corner? What about them? They came to John, the same as many of you came here. You didn’t see us on the street corners did you? they are fishing on the corners, on the web, in buildings the world over.
We are here just as John, and Yahawashi, to do a job
Matthew 25:14–15 AV 1873
14 For the kingdom of heaven is as a man travelling into a far country, who called his own servants, and delivered unto them his goods. 15 And unto one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one; to every man according to his several ability; and straightway took his journey.
14: Let’s say this man is God, travelling to a far country. We are the servants
15: Some according you ability, received five talents, some will receive two, and some will receive one. All according to your ability.
1 Corinthians 12:11 AV 1873
11 but all these worketh that one and the selfsame Spirit, dividing to every man severally as he will.
No matter the job you’re given, or what administration it is, one must remember, it’s working for the same Lord, just in a different operation. Some will have one, and some many. You be the best as John was, He did his job well
Luke 7:28 AV 1873
28 For I say unto you, Among those that are born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist: but he that is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he.
Focus on John, among women of children being born; there is none greater than John the Conmdemer. Even if you feel your assignment in not important, and the lowest, guess what; It’s is greater than John. If you do your job for the kingdom. John follow direction, and to the letter. Be John my friend, be John.
John 14:12 AV 1873
12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.
The same with Yahawashi, we will also do greater works than him. But do not let this verse go to your head
John 15:20 AV 1873
20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
Stay focus on the goal, and we are God’s army. We will get old my friend and some of us will die in the process through different things: cancer and so forth, for the kingdom.
