We are winding down our study on the different individuals in the Bible. So, I thought it only fitting that the last one should be about the last Old Testament prophet. Do you know that is? He is actually listed in the New Testament writings, but he did prophecy of the coming of the Messiah. He is called the forerunner of Christ – yes, it is John the Baptist.
John the Baptist is a very unique individual, to say the least. But, then again, aren’t we all? John began to impact the lives of people before he was ever conceived. His father, Zacharias, doubted the message of Gabriel and as a result he was unable to speak until John was born. John was a powerful preacher, but he sure didn’t dress like one. He spoke the truth without compromise which caused him to lose his head.
OK, I don’t want to give you the whole lesson, so come on out and join us at Wilson Ave Baptist this week. If you can’t come, then look it up on our web site next week to hear it for yourself. Hope to see you Sunday.
