There are many Ministers in the world now who believe to championing the will of God to save the human race through the gospels of our Lord Jesus Christ. However when we examine the preaching of this Gospel of the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, there is a clear and indusputable truth that many are not following the truth of the Bible, especially if Ministers do not know that it is impossible to lead a soul to the Father through Jesus Christ without the knowledge of the link between the Ministry of Jesus Christ and that of John the Baptist.

The Bible clearly tells us that both Jesus and John the Baptist testified of each other's Ministry. If these testimonies of our Lord and John the Baptist were not necassary they would not have been admissible in the Holy Bible. I therefore call on true Ministers who have been called by the Father through Jesus Christ His only begotten son from the dead to teach and to preach etc and to spend more time in their prayers, if they are truly born of the faith of the Water and the Spirit to petition the Father in the name of Jesus, to give them understanding of the "Relationship Between the Ministry of Jesus and that of John the Baptist" instead of concentrating their efforts on material prosperity and Miracles etc etc in order to lead seekers of the Kingdom of God to receive the remission of sins from their hearts, spirits through perfect faith, because the Kingdom of God in the hearts of men can only be attained by perfect faith according to John 3:5, " Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit; he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God."

Let us look at all that the Father has spoken relating to our Lord Jesus and His prophet John the Baptist.
" The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. As it is written in the prophets: 'Behold, I send My messanger before Your face, who will prepare Your way befor you.'" Here we see the Father addressing His Son Jesus that He was sending a messenger, His prophet to prepare the way before Jesus arrives into this world. I believe that if we are to receive the Revelation from God, we must discard our preconceived idea about the word of God and open our hearts, spirits to receive the truth from the Father through His Son Jesus by the Holy Spirit. Now this word of God was prophesied by the prophet Micah 3:1" Behold, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the way before me; and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts." This messenger is none other John the Baptist. Here the Father clearly tells us that it was necessry for John the Baptist to come into this world before our Lord Jesus, hence he was six months ahead of Jesus. All bible student know this fact that John was six months before Jesus Christ our Lord. Again let us look at Matt.11:10-11. The word of God in Mark 1:1-2 is confirmed here, "For this is he of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee. 'Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist; Nothwithstanding, he that is least in the Kingdom of heaven is greater than he. It is clear that the purpose for John the Baptist coming to this earth before Jesus was to fulfil the role of the High Priest of the old Testament and to pass the sins of the world to Jesus in order to fulfil the Levitical law for the remission of sins. Because of time this review shall be continued in the next one.
