Notes on God's Plan
GOD’S PLAN – 1). God had John prepare the way for Jesus. (v.3) In many ways, John’s life is a shadow of what we are to be like today. We are to be a voice for God in a desert-like place, living in uncomfortable cultural surroundings, but preparing the world for the return of Christ. 2). John declares that God will cut down every one of us that does not bear fruit. (v.10,12) Not only was this a warning for the leaders present that day, and also a warning for all of us who have followed and read this story It’s also a prophecy of the future end of time, when God will judge men.
