[John 5:35] John was the lamp that kept on burning and shining [to show you the way], and you were willing for a while to delight (sun) yourselves in his light.
In Johns light – the law and the prophets – it is for a while. Their light is not eternal, it is not forever but it is temporary.
You may find yourself in what is for a while – for John came in the spirit of Elijah.
In mount transfiguration, there was Moses and the Elijah; one representing the law and the other, the prophets. Their light lasted for a while.
There are those who go to those whose light lasts for a while. Many go to man of God asking for help. But for how long will you do that? Check firstly, what kind of a gate it is.
You may be offended but I’m speaking the truth and the word I’m speaking is speaking to you.
I need to repeat; for i don’t want to lose you.
Remember, John came to testify concerning the light who was to come. This is concerning the light.
Do not be like one of the five virgins, for they are brothers of the rich man when he said to father Abraham, “I have five brothers”. And Abraham said to him, “They have Moses and the prophets”.
The rich man again replied and said that if someone can come from Hades and go to them, maybe they can repent.
He did not say, yes, thank you, for they have the law and the prophets. But He said, no, if someone from the dead goes to them, they will repent. In other words, let it be someone who can step in Hades and yet the gates of Hades will never prevail against them. They can go and not be harmed.
You must reach a level where you qualify to be everywhere. For [Psalm 139:8] says, “If I ascend up into heaven, You are there; if I make my bed in Sheol (the place of the dead), behold, You are there”.
I’m teaching you, equipping you, developing you. Listen to this; for I’m giving you an ear to hear and eyes to see. The Holy Spirit will confirm what I’m saying now.
There are those whom John was preaching to, they fell into a trap. “You were willing for a while to sign yourself in his light”.
False joy, busy saying, man of God, but you signed yourself in John’s light which was for a while. I have something greater, higher and better than that of John. I have someone mightier than John.
John can be the spirit of Elijah – representing the prophets – but here comes someone better then John.
He says, “I have something higher, greater, than that of John”. John carried the law and the prophets; for the law and the prophets were proclaimed until John.
It is not yet time, John is waiting, all of them are waiting; for they saw that there is a generation that is coming. They longed to be there but they could not.
Someone had to be born. Jesus had to go to their graves and say come prophets, follow me; for I have come to fulfill you.
You will preach some messages but you are killing people. Telling them about the time to be born and the time to die, it is not from God. It says, “In a man you also put eternity, the spirit in you, which the Lamb of God”. So there is no time for this and a time for that.
Paul says, “I thank God whom I serve in my spirit”. It is eternal; it is not for a while. God has put eternity in a man.
When one says, a time to love and a time hate, a time to live and die; they are not speaking from God. What are the fruits of the spirit, hate and love?
As you go on with that scripture, you will see it says all was just chasing after wind. And it also says, God planted eternity into a man. So do not find yourself signing to what is for but a while. Heaven and earth will pass but my word shall remain.
It is also difficult for God to come in a man who is stubborn. Hence it is difficult for people of the law to change.
I want us to get this. It is time to preach the gospel of the kingdom, to teach people life. Jesus says, “I have come that you might have life, and life in abundance”. And again he says, “He who comes before me is a thief and a robber”.
Jesus went to be baptized by John. He said to John, who wanted to be baptized by Jesus, you are the one baptize me, so that all righteousness must be fulfilled.
He was busy about righteousness. Even when they went to Jerusalem and they saw that Jesus disappeared for a long time (his parents), his parents went back to look for him. When they found him in the temple, he said, “I’m about my father’s business”. He was about the same business when he met with John to be baptized.
“You baptize me so that all rightness must be fulfilled”.
It was like Jesus saying, “If I baptize you, John, there is no fulfillment”.
I strength your coming before me.
To finish robbery, baptize me John,
After being baptized, then Jesus came up out of the water. And from above, the spirit like a dove came and God Himself saying, “This is my Son, whom I love. In Him, I’m well pleased”.
Are you looking unto John? Well it’s only temporary.
[Luke 16:16] The law was proclaimed until John but after, the gospel was preached.
“Heaven and earth will pass but my word will remain”.
If someone is offended by what I’m preaching, well I’m preaching and I don’t need any human to testimony. Your confirmation says nothing to me. I don’t need human testimony. Paul said in [1 Corinthians 2] that even though he is not eloquent in speech, the Holy Spirit will confirm on his behalf.
The Holy Spirit is not human testimony.
TO GOD BE THE GLORY!!!
