In those days came John the Baptist, preaching in the wilderness of Judaea, MT 3:1 And saying, Repent ye: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. MT 3:2 For this is he that was spoken of by the prophet Esaias [Isaiah], saying, The voice of one crying [out WU] in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of [for WU] the Lord, make his paths straight. MT 3:3 REPENT And the same John had his raiment [clothing] of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle [belt] about his loins [waist]; and his meat [food] was locusts and wild honey. MT 3:4 Then went out to him [people from] Jerusalem, and all Judaea, and all the region round about Jordan, MT 3:5 And were baptized of [by] him in [the] Jordan [river WU], confessing their sins. MT 3:6 REPENT
But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees come to his baptism, he said unto them, O generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? MT 3:7 Bring forth therefore fruits meet for [in keeping with WU] repentance: MT 3:8 And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to [for] our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of [from] these stones to raise up children unto Abraham. MT 3:9 KEEPS FROM BELIEVING Pride And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. MT 3:10 APPLY Fruit Essential I indeed baptize you with water unto [for] repentance. but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear [carry]: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost [Spirit], and with fire: MT 3:11 GOD IN US APPLY Not Easy Whose fan [winnowing fork] is in his hand, and he will throughly purge [clear WU] his [threshing] floor, and gather his wheat into the garner [barn]; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire. MT 3:12 JUDGEMENT By Christ
