GOD IS RAISING UP JOHN THE BAPTISTS
 
As I was praying and meditating recently the Lord brought some interesting things before me. God never does something without speaking to his Prophets first.
 
John the Baptist was a prophet that came on the scene before Jesus’ ministry started. When asked who he was, his reply in Luke 1:23 was: ”… I am the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Make straight the way of the Lord as said the prophet Isaiah.” This was a quote from Isaiah 40:3. 
 
What was his message? Repentance. Under the old covenant each year during the Days of Awe between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, the Jews would ritually bathe to “cleanse themselves” of sin. This was not an unknown practice during that time. It wasn’t something new. His message of repentance brought them to this place of ritually bathing or being baptized. It was a tradition.
 
Yet John’s message contained some strong new language. His message said that there was one coming that he wasn’t worthy to tie his shoelaces, and that He would baptize them with the Holy Spirit and with fire. He also said that they were to bring forth therefore fruits suitable for repentance. 
 
What did that mean? It meant that it wasn’t just words spoken, it was a lifestyle change which produced works that showed there was true repentance. Without that repentance he would not baptize them. His baptism of repentance would fulfill the Old Testament ritual, bringing in the New Testament. Everything John did was under the Old Testament period of time because Jesus had not yet been crucified, dead, buried and risen again. The resurrection and the placing of the blood on the altar in heaven brought in the New Testament. Yet, what John preached was absolutely necessary for preparing the way for Jesus to fulfill this.
 
We are in a season of time where we see scriptures fulfilled, and prophecy coming to pass very quickly. We are at the “end” of one season, and the “beginning” of a new season. The message of repentance is absolutely necessary in order to usher in the second coming of Jesus Christ.
 
True repentance will have fruits that show repentance. It will be more than mere words or a tradition. It will be a change of heart, mind and will, a sorrowing over sin like never before, and a time where righteousness and holiness are the standard to live by. 
 
There are voices crying out as I write this that call for repentance. Without true repentance we delay the return of the Lord. Many religious people will be called a generation of vipers and will be warned from the wrath to come, just like John the Baptist warned the religious people of his day. Those with the spirit of John the Baptist will call sin as it is – sin. They will not care if it costs them their head to proclaim this truth because they know that it is necessary to preach it. They will rise up in that same spirit and declare that one is coming greater than them and that they must prepare themselves for this coming. Those with this spirit are needed in this hour to see God’s plan unfold. Just like there was a John the Baptist in the womb of John’s mother Elizabeth, many others are pregnant with this same spirit and about to deliver.
 
Are you one of them? Are you willing to pay the price to proclaim the truths that are fruits suitable for repentance, and not just a change of clothing or lifestyle, but a heart change?
 
I praise God for those with this call. Let it come forth and be the voice needed in this hour. May they shout it from the housetops. May they cry it aloud in the wilderness. May they preach it wherever they go. May it bring the repentance needed to usher in the return of Christ!

ABRAHAM PART 34
THE DOWN PAYMENT
 
Abraham had lived several decades in Canaan when Sarah, at age 127 died. God had promised all of Canaan to him, but he had no legal ownership of any part of it. He needed to acquire some land by legal ownership as a family burial place.
 
Sarah died in Kir-jath-ar-ba, later named Hebron. He purchased a piece of land which included a cave that could serve for a burial site. He paid 400 shekels of silver and it was witnessed by all the key people in the area. Sarah, Abraham, Isaac, Rebekah, Jacob, and Leah were to eventually all be buried there.
 
In spite of God’s promise to own the entire land of Canaan, this one piece is the only land he personally would ever own. It served like a down payment or “earnest money deposit” on that promise. The promise was fulfilled hundreds of years later as the nation of Israel, his seed, descended, and took possession of Canaan. 
 
God’s promise was fulfilled in God’s own timing. Abraham only got a “foretaste” of it, but his “seed” received the fullness of it.
 
We also must be patient when it comes to God’s promises. We desire fulfillment “now,” but His time might be “later.” His promises are true, the “yes and amen.” We must trust, believe, and be obedient to His word; it will come in His “fullness of time.”
