The Voice of One
As it is written in the book of the prophet Isaiah:
“Someone is shouting in the desert:(Luke 3:4-6) Good News Translation
‘Get the road ready for the Lord;
make a straight path for him to travel!
Every valley must be filled up,
every hill and mountain leveled off.
The winding roads must be made straight,
and the rough paths made smooth.
The whole human race will see God’s salvation!’”
Jews believe that the messiah can’t come until Elijah has returned to restore all things. Jesus told us that John the Baptist was Elijah. That was round 1. We, that’s me and the Holy spirit, are round 2.
This passage above is part of the account of the ministry and preaching of John the Baptist, who Jesus regarded to be the voice of one crying in the wilderness. John the Baptist was quoting the prophet Isaiah. It sounds like flowery poetic language but we have all of the elements that we need to be able to model this as a physical reality which will result from a major transformation of the earth’s landmass as the Millennial Kingdom is established.
A voice cries out,(Isaiah 40:3-5) Good News Translation
“Prepare in the wilderness a road for the Lord!
Clear the way in the desert for our God!
Fill every valley;
level every mountain.
The hills will become a plain,
and the rough country will be made smooth.
Then the glory of the Lord will be revealed,
and all people will see it.
The Lord himself has promised this.”
