This is My Beloved Son: Reframe

During the days of the Holy Messiah from God, there was a man called John the Baptist. He preached in the wilderness of Judaea emphasizing for people to repent because the Kingdom of Heaven is at hand.

It is this same John whom it was prophesied by the prophet Esaias (Isaiah) that The voice of one crying in the wilderness, you prepare the way of the LORD, and make the paths straight for Him.

John the son of Zacharias, wore the clothing of camel’s hair with a leather strap around his waist. He lived a different life than everyone else, he ate wild honey and bugs like the locusts.

This is My Beloved Son

Somehow he attracted most of Jerusalem and all of Judaea, many people from all over the region came to see John. They all listened to him preach and were also baptized by him in the Jordan, as they confessed their sins.

John was also surprised to observe many of the Pharisees and Sadducees came out and were baptized by him. He said to them, “O generation of vipers, who has warned you to flee from the wrath that is to come?”

He then commanded them to bring forward fruits good for repentance. That is to say, begin to demonstrate behavior that compliments or shows they have repented and have a change of mind. Many thought they simply had to go through the motions.

John reminded them that they should think to themselves that they are Abraham’s see because, “God is able to raise up children to Abraham, using these stones.” John the Baptist would give fair and harsh admonition.

Baptizing with the Holy Spirit and Fire

He said the ax is laid to the root of trees; trees that do not bring forth good fruit is hewn down and thrown into the fire. John declared that he indeed baptized those in his days with water for repentance.

However, the One that will come after him was much, much mightier than he was. John did not consider himself worthy enough to look or touch His shoes. The one after John is much greater. The One after John, he would baptize everyone with the Holy Spirit, and with fire.

His fan is in His hand and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather in His wheat into the garner. However, He will absolutely burn up the chaff, with an unquenchable fire no one will believe.

During this time, Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan, looking to also be baptized by John. John recognized who He was and said, “I have need to be baptized by You, and You have come to me?”

Suffer It So for Righteousness Sake

Jesus responded to John by simply saying, “Suffer it to be so for now; for thus it becomes us to fulfill all righteousness.” John suffered Him and baptized Jesus, who took on the sins of the entire world, past, present, and future.

When Jesus was baptized, when He came out of the water, the heavens were opened to Him. He saw the Spirit of God coming down like a dove and it lighted on the LORD Jesus the Holy Messiah.

This was followed by a voice from Heaven that said, “This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased!”
