People came to John from Jerusalem and the rest of Judea and from all the areas along the Jordan River. They confessed the bad things they done, and John baptized them in the Jordan. Many Pharisees and Sadducees came to where John was baptizing people. When John saw them, he said, “You are all snakes! Who warned you to run from God’s Judgement that is coming? Change your hearts! And show by the way you live that you have changed. I batipize you with water to show that you have changed your hearts and lives..” (Mathew 3:5-8, 11) The ways of God will never be the ways of man. The wisdom of God is but foolishness in the eyes of a carnal man. God’s love is highly innovative. To walk in the fullness of God’s Plan for man’s life, man has to subject himself to every mystery delivered to him in the scriptures. During and after the fall of man, one system in man that was highly corrupted by the serpent’s venom was, “The believe system.” This venom paralyzed the mind of the best brain ever lived. The first man Adam was a goal getter, a pacesetter and a pathfinder. But as soon as the venom clogged his mind, he became all-round garbage including mentally. We saw him operating and thinking below standard as he resorted to using leaves as clothing material. He could not believe in the provision, protection and shelter of His creator any longer. That was the malicious effect of the serpent’s venom on man. Every move God made to bring man back to Himself has proved insignificant as man will argue and doubt all God’s plan for him and his kind after the fall. Doubt (unbelief), is a symptom of a venom clogged mind. In order to help man deal with unbelief, God whose wisdom cannot be fathom, delivered a mystery to John the Baptist his First New Testament Prophet, who was given the soul ministry to prepare the way for Jesus the Anointed Savior. That mystery was the mystery of Water Baptism by Immersion. John preparing the way for Jesus was solely preaching and ministering a mystery that will help man come out from serpent belief system. This mystery was and remains an antidote to a mind clogged with serpent’s venom (unbelief). “When the people heard this, they all agreed that God’s teaching was good. Even the tax collectors agreed. These were the people who are baptized by John. But the Pharisees and experts in the law refused to accept God’s plan for themselves, they did not let John baptize them.” Luke 7:29-30 The Pharisees and the law experts could not believe the teaching of Jesus when he finally arrived. Why? They rejected the laid down plan to The Way, The Truth and The Life. It takes believing to see The Kingdom of God come. Every blessing attached to redemption is activated by one’s believe and immediately man lost his believe system to the devil, he lost access to All blessings of God. For man, to have access to all those blessings again, he must be subjected to the mystery of water baptism by immersion as delivered to John the forerunner of Jesus Christ. Even Jesus the Christ, has to pass through the same plan to see his destiny open up. It was written, “So Jesus was baptized. As soon as he came up out of the water, the sky opened, and he saw God’s Spirit coming down on Him like a Dove. ” Mathew 3:16 That same Jesus speaking on water baptism by immersion says “Let it be this way for now. We should do WHATEVER GOD SAYS IS RIGHT.” Then John agreed. Mathew 3:15 Today make up your mind to do whatsoever God says its right for in it lays the fullness of His blessings, for it is written, “The blessings of the Lord, it maketh rich and he addeth no sorrow with it.” Sorrow will never be your ending in the name of Jesus! Amen!
