THE WORD OF GOD CAME!
“In the Priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas, the word of God came unto John the Son of Zacharias in the wilderness.” Luke 3:2
IN JESUS TODAY:
So where exactly was John when he received this word of God? Was he in the Priesthood, or a part of the Priesthood, and were they in the temple, or all in the wilderness together? We can wonder about these questions, reasoning within ourselves what the answers may be, but if we search the word of God we find that John was with God in the wilderness, desert of Judea, and similar to this David and others were also alone with God when they received the word of God about their situations and callings, As we read,
“As it is written in the book of the words of Esaias the prophet, saying, the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make his paths straight.” Luke 3:4
SPENDING TIME WITH GOD…
“And David rose up early in the morning, and left the sheep with a keeper, and took, and went, as Jesse had commanded him; and he came to the trench, as the host was going forth to the fight, and shouted for the battle.” 2Samuel 17:20
See it was during the time of the Priesthood of Annas and Caiaphas that this occurred, but the reference indicates that John was a part of their Priesthood and at some time a partaker of this ministry, and God chose to speak to him in the wilderness of Judea because of his close relationship to God.
Imagine how much more we would actually hear from God if we were to press in to God to be closer to him! Many times as Christians we want to hear from God, but we only need to get closer to God and be a part of His Priesthood so that we will hear from him. If we are stray sheep, distant followers, or part-time pursuers how then can we expect to receive all that God desires for us?
When we draw near to God he will draw near to us and show us great and mighty things, as we read,
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.” Jeremiah 33:3
God will send his word to you and heal your land, as we read,
“Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saveth them out of their distresses. He sent his word, and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions. Psalm 107:19, 20
Get closer to God and the word of God will come to you!
