Focus: The Ministry and Message of John the Baptist ~
We have been looking at the book of Luke and understanding why the book of Luke begins with explaining the background, circumstances and events regarding John the Baptist. The message and the ministry of Elijah is to restore all things. John the Baptist preceded Yeshua, and so he functioned in the role of “Elijah” to precede the first coming of Messiah. The ministry and the message of John the Baptist was to turn the hearts of the disobedient to the wisdom and truth of torah, to make ready a people prepared for the Lord. Similarly, there will be an Elijah message and ministry that manifests just prior to the second coming of the Messiah.
