Come and join Veteran SGT Steve McFarland for Tuesday night's "Healing Through Faith" addition of Warriors for Life (WFL) Virtual Group Support Community Services brought to you by Victory for Veterans (VFV).
Tonight's Topic: "Who was John the Baptist?"
In our studies in John's Gospel so far, we have noted the appearance on the scene of John the Baptist, who was to play a pivotal-role in the coming of the Messiah, the Christ. John was the forerunner, the herald of the Great One who was to come, and his coming had been foretold in the Old Testament.
There had been no prophets in Israel for over 400 years. God had been silent, and seemingly absent during this period, but He had promised another prophet, a prophet who would come in the spirit and power of Elijah to prepare the way for the coming Messiah. John the Baptist was called to be that prophet.
"There came a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to testify about the Light, so that all might believe through him. He was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light." (John 1:6-8)
