Luke 3:4-6 (KJV)
4 As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, The voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.
5 Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be brought low; and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough ways shall be made smooth;
6 And all flesh shall see the salvation of God.
Isaiah 40:3-5 (KJV)
3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:
5 And the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together: for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken it.
John the Baptist prepared the way for Jesus. As the word of the Lord came unto Him, he fulfilled it in total submission to God.
Lord, I know that Your prophesies are true and will always be fulfilled. This is because Your words in the Bible are a lamp unto our feet and guide us to all truth. I find it amazing each I read the prophesies in the Old Testament and see them be fulfilled in the New Testament and even now. Truly, Your words are alive and have the power to teach us great and mighty things. One such prophesy that amazes me is the prophesy of John. Only You Lord could give this revelation to Isaiah 700 years before John even came into this world, and have it be fulfilled with John. For surely time is not a factor for You Lord. You are more than capable of moving and shaping this world, in order to see Your will be done. And what John did in total submission to Your will is remarkable. Surely, he is a great example for each us in our how we ought to respond to Your will. His calling was to prepare the way for You Jesus. Now, for us, I know that Your callings for us are important also. You have given me a calling to witness Your truths to the world. And by so doing, have given me boldness to share Your great love on the streets, online, and in my writings. I just pray that others will find their spiritual gifts and also allow themselves to be used by You. There is no greater calling then to know that I am led by You, the God of the heavens and fulfilling Your wishes on earth. To serve You Lord, is my heart's desire. It is because I love You with all my heart, mind and soul, that I seek You and obey. I say these things Lord, in the holy Name, Jesus. Amen.
Even when Isaiah was written 700 years before Christ, the prophesy of John came true at the exact moment of time that it was destined to happen. Continue Reading
