Who was John the Baptist? The relative of Jesus, sent by Jehovah to fulfilled his Word.
Many times priest were also prophet, Eg Zachariah, Ezekiel or Jeremiah. God did not just pick any Tom,Deck or Henry to go out as his messengers. He always spoke through a priest or prophet such as Zechariah, Ezekiel or Jeremiah. Let's read (Luke 1:5)"In the time of Herod king of Judea there was a priest named Zachariah, who belonged to the Priestley division of Abijah,his wife Elizabeth was also a descendant of Aaron ".
The priest introduced in verse 5 is a man named Zachariah ,and serving in the division of Abijah. Zachariah was not only a levite, but also a descendant of Aaron. This made Zechariah an Aaronic priest.

Luke also declares that Zechariah " had a wife of the daughter of Aaron and her name was Elizabeth ". So not only is John's dad a descendant of Aaronic but his mother is also in the Aaronic family. This makes John the Baptist full blooded Aaronic, doesn't he?

In Luke 1:6-7 we learn that, Zechariah the high priest was carrying out his Priestley duty in the order of his division. By the time of Jesus birth, the high priest has become a political appointment. As we see today many preachers of the Gospel go out without knowing or believing in the Gospel of the water and the spirit.

In the days of John the Baptist and Jesus, Anna's and caiaphas served as high priest. These men held the duty by political appointment, so there was a legitimate high priest somewhere doing something. This priest was Zechariah who God chose to carry out this apical duty. While Zechariah was on duty an Angele appeared to him with good news, that his wife would bear a son and he was to name him John. God selected this man in his old age to have a child,that is two produce one last priest.

Luke 1:15 says" He will be great in the sight of the Lord. And he will drink no wine or liquor. And he will be filled with the spirit while yet in his mother's womb, and he will turn many of the Son's of Israel back to the Lord God. This means that John will be the representative of all humanity, to carry out God's righteous work.
God was going to give a son to Zechariah and Elizabeth, and he would be the last of the High priest of the order of Aaron.

In Malachi 3:1 God tell us that he will send a "messenger" to prepare the way of the Lord. In the context of Malachi, the messenger is always a priest. God through Malachi is speaking to a group of priests with whom he is surely dissatisfied. God promise to those messenger's that He is going to send "MY MESSENGER" who will be messenger of covenant. Is God saying that since the priest of the order of Aaron are not doing their work, he is going to send his own priest? That is a priest after the order of Melchizedek. And this priest is Jesus Christ. And when John the Baptist arrived what does he do?He is most known for baptizing.

And when Jesus wanted to be Baptized, John at first refused. He refused on the basis of his unworthiness, that he was baptizing a baptism of repentance, and Jesus had nothing of which he needed to repent. Jesus, however said "for righteousness let it be done". What righteousness is he talking about?
When Aaron was ordained to be the priest, the ordination services include the" washing " of Aaron and his sons. The particular Hebrew word for wash that is used in the ordination of the priest is not for rinses or for sprinkling, or for pouring but it's a word that means to get all the way into the water. In Judaism baptised means mikva. Which means baptism by immersion. And when Jesus was ready to began his ministry, he said "let it be, this is for righteousness sake". I believed that,John last of the high priest, according to the order of Aaron is baptizing Jesus, the High priest according to the order of Melchizedek. In order word John is transferring authority to the new order of the priesthood; the old order of Aaron is passing away, and now is transferred to Jesus, who is our priest according to the Priestley order of Melchizedek.

What is this authority that is transferred to Jesus? This means all the Sins of the whole world was transfer on Jesus body through His baptism by John the Baptist or all the sins where immersed on his body or Jesus Wash all sins with his baptism (Matthew 3:13-17). Spiritual baptism means " pass on to" In the old testament, the Aaronic has to leg his hands on the sacrificial Lamb and confessed on it all the sins and transgression and iniquity of all the people and put them on the lamb.(Lev.16:21). And this is the same thing in the new testament, John the Baptist who is the dependent of Aaron passed the world sin on Jesus body through his baptism. And Jesus had the authority to received those sins on His body by baptism. That was why Jesus Christ said in(Matthew 28:18)"Then Jesus came to them and said, "All Authority in Heaven and on Earth has been given to Me".

And Jesus Christ further carry all the sins on his body to the cross and paid with his own Blood. And has completely saved his believes.

If this is true, then who beside John could have been chosen for this task? John had to be chosen because he was the end of the line for the Aaronic priesthood legitimately passing authority to the new priesthood forever held in Jesus Christ.

And Jesus Christ also testify on to John, that no prophet has ever risen like John the Baptist.

Let's all short a big Hallelujah to our Lord Jesus Christ.
