 God’s Love is not for sale and you can’t earn a ticket to Heaven
by works or good deeds or wealth or fame or human intellect.

God’s Love is like His Grace; Unconditional and Eternal!
We have His undeserved kindness and love no matter who or
what we are. Eventhough we’ve sinned and not a penny to our
name; He’s ever ready there to forgive us when we repent of
our sins truthfully and honestly from the heart.

God doesn’t measure or grade us according to our intellect
nor our good deeds nor our works and certainly not our
bank accounts but only through our love for Him; whether it
is genuine and whole-heartedly.

Be consistent in contact with Almighty God for He sits in the
Heavens above and that should be the key to remind ourselves
that we are on earth below. We are just mere mortals, kind of
like vapor that’s here one minute and gone in another. On that
note, we should strive not to be proud, arrogant or boastful at all.
Let us adopt a humble attitude and God will exalt us in due time.

“Forming light and creating darkness, making peace and creating calamity,

I, Jehovah, am doing all these things.” – Isaiah 45:7

Wait expectantly for His Miracles, Be in Awe of His Creation
of the whole Universe. Meditate on His Holy Words! God’s
words fills, nourishes, rejuvenates and refreshes our souls and
senses like mountain dew; it is His Love for us in the 66 books
of the Bible; it’s His loving letters of guidance to us.  God’s love
for us in Christ Jesus keeps flowing like the river that never
runs dry if we ourselves never stop loving Him.
“For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any
double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and
spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes
of the heart.”
*Hebrew 4:12*

Even the Lord Byron in his quote, “I have drunk every cup of
pleasure, and I have quaffed every cup of fame, and yet alas,
I die of thirst!”; realized and lamented that his thirst can
only be quenched by the Living and One True God Jehovah
and His only Begotten Sinless Son, Jesus Christ, our Messiah.
Though he found pleasure, fame and fortune; he was still
empty and starving, he was craving for Almighty God’s love
which can be gotten only through Jesus, the Bread of Life,
the only Way and Truth to God.
“Jesus said to him: “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life.
No one comes to the Father except through me.”
*John 14:6*

God's Holy Scriptures

THE BIBLE

Adam  and Eve  they started it all
In that beautiful garden before the big fall

The Devil enticed them, and that fruit they did eat
They were thrown out of Eden, into the street

Enoch lived to the age, of three hundred sixty five
And he walked with God while he was still alive
Many years later, the earth became corrupt
God said to Noah, “My temper will erupt”

“Build yourself an ark, the dimensions I will give
Your family and earth’s creatures, are going to live”

Before the rains came and the water began to soar
God said “Noah get in the ark, and don’t open the door”

When land appeared and the waters were on the wane
Noah said to his sons, “start the thing over again”

The world spoke one tongue, and built the Tower of Babel
But God confused their speech, it was tough to play Scrabble

At age seventy-five, the Lord told Abraham
“Take Sarah and Lot, and go to Canaan”

“I will make you a great nation, and I will bless
All this land will be yours, for you to assess”

Isaac was born, to continue the line
He became very rich, God’s blessing did shine

Twins were born to Rebekah, after an ordeal
They hairy one came first, the other gripping his heel

“Two nations are they, and one shall pass the other
Esau the red, will serve Jacob his brother

The blessing went to Jacob, because Isaac was blind
He wrestled with God, to receive an anointing divine

Twelve sons he received, and it was a big deal
They became the fathers, of the tribes of Israel

To get rid of Joseph, his brothers made a plot
But in Egypt he landed, and became a big shot

Now famine hit Israel, and the family did pack
And traveled to Egypt, for the food they did lack

But Jacob and the eleven, were in for a surprise
They recognized Joseph, with tears in their eyes

The twelve tribes lived in Egypt, for many a year
They multiplied so fast, the Pharaoh did fear

He suppressed them in slavery, and it remained so
Until Moses came along, and said “Let my people go”

Ten plagues did it take, before the Pharaoh made it clear
He told Moses and Aaron, “get the heck out of here”

Moses led his people, about three million or more
For forty years in the desert and across the sea floor

God’s presence was with them, it was an awesome sight
A massive cloud by day, and raging fire by night

With Manna coming from Heaven, and water from a rock
There was enough to sustain them, and all of their stock

Moses was a true friend of God, they talked face to face
No greater man ever lived, that had God’s grace

“Curse Israel, Balaam,” said the great king Balak
But Balaam chickened out, when a donkey talked back

Joshua and Caleb, crossed the Jordan one day
And kicked the heathens out of Israel, in a multi-year fray

Now Israel was camped, in the Promised Land
But they continued to fight, to further expand

When Joshua passed on, the Judges took rule
It was their job, to keep things running cool

The heathens attacked Israel, and Othniel did slam
Cushan-rishathaim, the king of Aram

When Israel served Moab, Ehud was up to the test
He defeated king Eglon, and had an eighty year rest

The army of Canaan, could not withstand the attack
Of ten thousand Israelites, led by Deborah and Barak

When Gideon and the three hundred, blew their trumpets one night
The Midianites and Amalekites, got up and took flight

After Jephthah subdued Ammon, it was a real shame
There was nobody in Israel, who could pronounce his name

So mighty was Samson, a lion he slew by its den
Then with the jawbone of an ass, he killed one thousand men

He had a big weakness, for a Philistine maiden
He woke up one morning, and found his head shaven

But the anointing returned, when his hair grew back
And the Philistine temple, he gave a good whack

With Ruth’s self sacrifice, and moral integrity
She became David’s great grandma, and gave him a legacy

Samuel was the last of the Judges, and he anointed Saul
As the first king of Israel, he was handsome and tall

But Saul went bad, and when it was time to depart
David came on the scene, a man after God’s heart

A great king was David, in the Lord’s sight
A little shepherd boy, who liked a good fight

He made some mistakes, but to God he would go
To get his sins forgiven, and continue to grow

Solomon was next in line, and under his reign
He built the Lord’s Temple, and increased the domain

He was the wisest of all kings, but later in life
He worshipped some idols, causing his country much strife

When Solomon died, the kingdom split in two
Ten tribes became Israel, while Judah had two

There were many kings of Israel, and Judah as well
Some followed God, and some followed Baal

Now God is alive, and will be ever more
Baal is a stone, that sits on the floor

But the people bowed to the stone, and idols of wood
And that was the end, of God’s old neighborhood

Asa, Jehoshaphat, Joash and Amaziah
Azariah, Jotham, Hezekiah, and Josiah

They were good kings, and did things to please God
But most of the others, did things that were odd

Ahab and Ahaz, were two of the worst
And Manasseh was so bad, he left Judah a curse

God sent many prophets, to turn things about
Some would dress funny, while others would shout

One of the best was Elijah, that the Lord sent
Away in a flaming chariot, to Heaven he went

He never really died, and there are rumors that say
He is coming back to earth, on a future day

Elisha had a double anointing, and it was said
He even performed a miracle, after he was dead

The destruction of the two kingdoms, Isaiah did preach
But the people did not listen, to his God-fearing speech

There were twelve minor prophets, as great as the rest
They answered His call, they all passed the test

Nahum and Habakkuk, Joel and Zechariah
Amos and Hosea, Haggai and Zephaniah

Micah and Malachi, Jonah and Obadiah
They preached the Lord’s prophecies, and did it with fire

The prophets tried to tell them, they went to every door
But the people worshipped idols, and sinned all the more

They sinned against the Lord, once too often my friend
The Assyrians attacked, and brought Israel to an end

The northern kingdom was gone, the people had fled
Judah hung in there, just by a thread

Another fierce army, was beginning to loom
Jeremiah did his best, to stop the oncoming doom

But Judah was stiff-necked, and went their own way
They turned their backs to God, His prophets they slay

And it was not too long, before their number was up
Because Judah and Israel, drank the same cup

Now God is slow to anger, but don’t push your luck
Keep on sinning my friend, and you’re a dead duck

Down came Nebuchadnezzar, and the men of Babylon
Judah was destroyed, the Temple was gone

Ezekiel became a prophet, in the Babylonian exile
He preached of restoration, that would come in a while

Daniel showed Nebuchadnezzar, the things that will come
A high post he was given, and a ruler of some

The Jews were in exile, for year after year
They begged God for mercy, their prayers He did hear

A Persian ruler was Cyrus, and a good man was he
He was a servant of God, and the Jews did he free

Back to the homeland, some of them came
They rebuilt the Temple, but it was never the same

Nehemiah and Ezra, and some other good men
Rebuilt the cities, and got things going again

Beautiful Esther talked, to the Persian king
And saved the Jewish people, from a slaughtering

But Israel was dominated, for many years more
The Persians, Greeks and Romans, all stood on their shore


The Old Testament has ended, and so has BC
But now comes the good part, the start of AD

In the days of King Herod, an angel appeared
To Zechariah and Mary, and both of them feared

To the Virgin Mary He said, “Hail favored one
The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and give you a Son

You shall call His name Jesus, He is a Godsend
His reign will be forever, His Kingdom will not end”

These two events, happened six months apart
John was born first, to the desert he did depart

He baptized the people, and told them to repent
He was making things ready, for the One to be sent

Magi came from the east, guided by a star
To see the new king, they traveled afar

They found the Baby Jesus, the one who is foremost
In a Bethlehem manger, with a heavenly host

Jesus met John, at the Jordan one day
“Behold the Lamb of God,” is all John could say

John baptized Jesus, the Heavens opened above
The Holy Spirit descended, in the form of a dove

Jesus went into the desert, for a forty-day fast
Satan tried to tempt Him, but he could not outlast

Jesus quoted some scriptures, forcing Satan to leave
The Word of God is final, Satan could not deceive

Walking the shores, of the Galilee Sea
He met James and John, the sons of Zebedee

“Leave your nets my friends, and come walk with Me
And fishers of men, are what you will be”

Twelve disciples, Jesus did choose
He taught them and gave them new powers to use

Peter and Andrew, Matthew and the rest
One was a devil, the others were blessed

A miracle He performed, at a wedding one time
Six jars of water, He turned into wine

In Cana it happened, the first of His signs
And His disciples starting believing, He was divine

Jesus preached to the people, He gave an account
And no better sermon did He preach, than the one on the Mount

He taught about anger, adultery and law
And to love your enemies, as you had not before

On a boat with His Disciples, there came up a squall
The boat took on water, it became a catchall

The Disciples asked Jesus, “are we to perish?”
He rebuked the storm, the waves did diminish

There came five thousand, to hear the Lord preach
They went hours without food, to hear Jesus teach

Some bread and two fish, He held up to bless
They had plenty to eat, with food in excess

All the sick came to Him, and it’s always His aim
To heal everyone, whether deaf, blind or lame

He cannot stand, to see anyone in pain
Yesterday or today, the healing’s the same

Lepers were cleaned, and the blind could see
Even the dead were raised, and the possessed set free

The crowds had gathered, to hear His call
He healed everyone, He healed them all

A woman caught in sin, had violated a law
“Stone her” yelled the crowd, with a mighty uproar

Jesus said to the crowd, words that would atone
“Let he who is without sin, cast the first stone”

When time was getting short,
He gathered His Disciples
For the Last Supper,
during which He gave out:

A piece of bread as His Body, and wine as His Blood.
To the Mount of Olives they went, the mob came like a flood

It was there He was betrayed, by Judas His friend
His Ministry on earth, had come to an end

He was sent to Golgotha, by Pilate to be
Mocked as a king, and nailed to a tree

Satan thought he had won, now that Jesus was dead
He saw Him on the cross, and all the blood that was shed

But Satan had no idea, of what was ahead
What seemed to be his victory, was Satan’s loss instead

On the third day, the stone rolled from the tomb
And when Jesus arose, it was the end of our doom

The battle was finished, at a great cost
But with Jesus alive, Satan knew he had lost

He is alive today, the right hand of God He does sit
Still doing miracles and healings, and it’s definite

To earth He will return, like a thief in the night
To clean the earth of evil, and to make things right

The Apostles took over, when Jesus ascended
The Holy Spirit came upon them, and they superintended

The spread of the Gospel, through the known world
For God they were working, and the harder they toiled

On His way to Damascus, traveled a man named Saul
He was blinded by a light, to the ground did he fall

“Why do you persecute Me.” he heard Jesus call
It was there he was converted, and became known as Paul

A great witness for Jesus, Paul then became known
He preached to the Gentiles, was righteous to the bone

He was beat with a whip, and struck by the stone
But you cannot be broke, when you’re one of Christ’s own

Other great disciples, on trips did embark
Timothy and Luke, Apollos and Mark

Silas and Titus, Barnabas and more
They preached the good news, to every known shore

Around 100 A.D., God appeared before John
“Get yourself a tablet, and write upon

Everything that I tell you, and everything you see
To let the world know, its future destiny”

Many visions of the future, did God reveal
Some were symbolic, and some of them real

He showed John everything, He did not conceal
How rough things will get, after He breaks the first seal

Earthquakes and pestilence, famine and war
These things will happen, like never before

And when the situation is bad, and the world is downcast
Christ will return, with a loud trumpet blast

He will take the false prophet, and the one known as the beast
And throw them into the fire, while the birds have a feast

Then Satan will be seized, and thrown into the pit
And after 1,000 years, the Lord will permit

Satan to be released, for a short season
But he goes back to his old tricks, of deception and treason

And now the pool of fire, is his final goal
Never again will Satan, ever harm another soul

When Judgment is over, and the earth is clean of sin
Down from the Heavens, the Holy City drops in

No more tears, pain or death, in that beautiful place
God is now dwelling, with the human race

The Word of God is completed, and it’s plain to see
The world needs a Savior, to act as referee

Our governments don’t work, they try all the more
Whenever they say peace, it always means war

The Jews prayed for a Messiah, to put up a good fight
To be free from oppression, and get out of their plight

But when He did come to earth, He was gentle and meek
Instead of a fight, He said “turn the other cheek”

Many prophecies in the Bible were fulfilled by Him
He went to the cross, to remove us from sin

He gave His Life for you, don’t let it go to waste
Turn your life over to Jesus, and do it with haste

A few words of meaning, can remove all your strife
And get your name printed, in God’s Book of Life

Don’t hesitate now, it’s later than you think
Jesus will return, in less than a blink

Say “Jesus my Lord, I turn my life over to You
I know You are the One, who is faithful and true

Forgive all my sins, and help me pursue
A better way of life, with a Spirit that’s new”

Say this with meaning, and you will be saved from the wrath
Stay off the broad highway, get on the constricted path

The broad road leads to destruction, and I can’t overstate
The way to eternal life, is through the narrow gate

Read the Bible every day, and walk in His Word
Repel from the sinning, don’t follow the herd

Some day face to face, with Christ you will be
He may ask you the question, “What have you done for Me?”

“MAN MUST LIVE, NOT ON BREAD ALONE,

BUT ON EVERY UTTERANCE COMING FORTH

THROUGH JEHOVAH’S MOUTH” (MATTHEW 4:4) – NWT

66 books of the BIBLE : ALL SCRIPTURES ARE INSPIRED BY GOD


PART TWO

LAMENTATIONS – A SEQUEL TO JEREMIAH’S PROPHECY WHOM
LAMENTED SORROWFULLY OVER THEIR RUINS OF THE HOLY CITY
AND THE SACRED TEMPLE WHICH HAD STOOD FOR OVER 400
YEARS. JEREMIAH WEPT IN SEPARATE POEMS IN LAMENTATIONS
REGARDING WHY GOD HAD PERMITTED THE FALL OF JERUSALEM.
IT WAS BECAUSE OF THE SINS OF THE PEOPLE AND THEIR
REJECTION OF THE ONE TRUE GOD, JEHOVAH.
EZEKIEL – PROPHET EZEKIEL APPOINTED BY GOD TO PREACHED
CAREFULLY CONTRIVED PROPHECIES REGARDING DOWNFALL
OF JUDAH AND JERUSALEM; JUDGMENTS UPON NATIONS WHO
SEEK TO DESTROY HIS PEOPLE; THE FINAL CALL AT THAT TIME
FOR THE REPENTANCE OF THE HOUSE OF ISRAEL AND LASTLY,
THE GLORIOUS RESTORATION OF ISRAEL.
DANIEL – DURING THE BABYLONIAN CAPTIVITY OF THE JEWS,
DANIEL AND HIS 3 FRIENDS [Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego]
HAVE DISPLAYED THEIR FEARLESS LOYALTY TO THE ONE FAITH
IN ONE TRUE GOD, JEHOVAH, OF THEIR FOREFATHERS AND
ALSO THEIR ADVANCEMENT INTO THE REALMS OF ROYAL FAVOR.
DANIEL INTERPRETED KING NEBUCHADNEZZAR’S DREAM AND
THE SYMBOLIC VISIONS THAT PORTENDS THE FOUR SUCCESSIVE
EMPIRES OF THE WORLD : BABYLON, PERSIA, GREECE AND ROME.
THE LAST EMPIRE WILL BE SUCCEEDED BY THE COMING OF THE
KINGDOM OF GOD.
HOSEA – A PROPHET OF THE NORTHERN KINGDOM OF ISRAEL
CALLED REPENTANCE FROM THEM AS HE FORESAW THE DOOM
THAT WERE TO BEFALL THEM IF THEY CONTINUED IN THEIR
SINS. THE REBELLIOUSNESS OF THE CHOSEN ONES WITH
THEIR UNGRATEFULNESS SOUGHT HELP FROM THE ASSYRIANS
AND THE EGYPTIANS RATHER FROM THE ONE TRUE GOD,
JEHOVAH, WHO HAD BEEN SHOWING THEM HIS LOVING
KINDNESS AND MERCY TIME AND TIME AGAIN. HOSEA ALSO
FORETOLD ABOUT THE COMING OF THE MESSIAH, JESUS CHRIST,
700 YEARS INTO THE FUTURE.
JOEL – A SYMBOLIC VISION FROM JOEL AS HE WARNED JUDAH
AND ISRAEL REGARDING THE PLAGUE OF LOCUSTS AND SEVERE
FAMINE OF THE LAND IF THEY DO NOT REPENT.  JOEL PLEADED
WITH THEM TO HUMBLE THEMSELVES BEFORE THE GREAT LORD
GOD JEHOVAH AND TO ASKED FOR HIS FORGIVENESS THROUGH
FASTING AND PRAYERS.  JOEL WAS PROSNOSTICATING OF THE
COMING OF THE “DAY OF THE LORD” WHICH GOD WILL SMITE
ALL THOSE WITH A REBELLIOUS AND UNREPENTANT HEART AND
HIS JUDGMENT WILL BE HARSH AND SEVERE, THOROUGH AND
MOST CERTAIN!
AMOS – A SHEPHERD FROM TEKOA, A SMALL TOWN FROM JUDEA;
WHOSE NAME MEANT “BURDEN BEARER” WAS CALLED BY LORD
GOD WITH A MISSION TO SEND THE MESSAGE OF DOOM UPON
ISRAEL AND THE SURROUNDING NATIONS. THEIR PRACTICES
OF IDOLATRY, PAGAN WORSHIPS, GREED, OPPRESSION OF THE
NEEDY AND ALSO THEIR CONTINUAL NEGLECT OF GOD’S
WORDS IGNITED GOD’S WRATH UPON OTHER NATIONS AND
JUDAH BUT ISRAEL SUFFERED THE HARSHEST OF PUNISHMENTS;
MORE SEVERE BECAUSE OF THEIR DEPTH OF THEIR SINS. AMOS’S
CHASTISEMENTS  WENT UNHEEDED AND SO ISRAEL WERE
EXILED INTO CAPTIVITY.
OBADIAH – HIS NAME LITERALLY MEANS “SERVANT OF JEHOVAH”.
THIS BOOK IS THE SHORTEST OF PROPHETICAL WRITINGS IN
JUST ONE CHAPTER WHICH FORETOLD ON THE DOOM OF EDOM,
WHO ARE DESCENDANTS OF ESAU AND THE PROMISE OF
DELIVERANCE FOR ZION, JERUSALEM.
JONAH – A LIFE OF PERIL LIVED FOR THE RELUCTANT RUNAWAY
PROPHET FROM DUTY ORDAINED BY JEHOVAH GOD. HIS MISSION
WAS TO DELIVER A MESSAGE OF REPENTANCE TO THE PEOPLE OF
NINEVEH FROM DESTRUCTION IN FORTY DAYS.
MICAH – HIS NAME INJECTS A MIGHTY STATEMENT “WHO IS
LIKE JEHOVAH”. HE FORESAW THE INVASION FROM FOREIGNERS,
THE DISPERSION OF THE ISRAELITES FOR THEIR SINS AND THE
INEVITABLE DESTRUCTION OF JERUSALEM BUT THE MOST
SIGNIFICANT OF ALL IS THAT HE IS THE ONLY PROPHET WHO
FORETOLD ABOUT THE BIRTH OF CHRIST IN BETHLEHEM [5:2]
NAHUM – A NATIVE OF GALILEE WITH A NAME “COMFORTER”
TO HIS CREDIT.  NAHUM’S PROPHECY WAS UNLIKE JONAH
WHICH WAS THE CERTAINTY OF DOOM FOR THE CORRUPT
PEOPLE OF NINEVEH WHOM HAD RETURNED TO THEIR SINFUL
WAYS. APART FROM NINEVEH, HE FORESAW JUDAH’S FUTURE
DELIVERANCE.
HABAKKUK – A PROPHET WHOSE NAME GOES BY “ONE WHO
EMBRACES” LIVED 600 YEARS BEFORE CHRIST IN TIMES
WHERE THE CHALDEANS CONQUERED NINEVEH OF THE
ASSYRIAN EMPIRE. THE “WHY” PROPHET WITH HIS
EXPECTANT  REPLY FROM HIS SINCERE PRAYER TO
JEHOVAH; LEARNT THAT WE NEEDED TO TRUST IN GOD
IMPLICITLY AND ALSO THE RIGHTEOUS SHALL LIVE BY
HIS OWN FAITH IN THE ONE TRUE GOD JEHOVAH.
ZEPHANIAH – HE PROPHESIED DURING THE REIGN OF KING
JOSIAH AND WHOSE NAME MEANS ‘DEFENDED BY JEHOVAH”.
HE FORETOLD OF UNIVERSAL JUDGMENT AND DIVINE WRATH
TO FALL UPON ALL NATIONS INCLUDING JUDAH TOO IF ALL
DEFY GOD’S LAW. ZEPHANIAH PLACED EMPHASIS ON SPIRITUAL
WORSHIP AND PREACHED THAT WORSHIP TOWARDS GOD NEED
NOT BE A PHYSICAL SANCTITY BUT IN THE QUIET SOLITUDE
OF OUR HEARTS. HE FURTHER STRESSED ON GOD’S SALVATION
AND JUDGMENT FOR MANKIND, AND ALSO THE PROMISES OF
NEW HEAVENS AND EARTH.
HAGGAI – THOUGH HE PROPHESIED FOR ONLY A SHORT TIME;
HAGGAI WHOSE NAME MEANS “MY FEAST” WAS THE FIRST
VOICE TO BE HEARD AFTER THE EXILE; HE RICOCHETED STERN
REPROOFS TO THE RESTORED PEOPLE OF GOD. HE TOLD THEM
OF THEIR DUTY TO RESTORE AND REBUILD GOD’S HOUSE OF
WORSHIP, THE TEMPLE, WHICH WAS BUILT BY KING SOLOMON
AND DESTROYED BY INVADERS. ZERUBBABEL, GOVERNOR OF
JERUSALEM AND JOSHUA, THE HIGH PRIEST AND THE PEOPLE
SET UPON THAT ENORMOUS TASK BUT WAS DISCOURAGED
EASILY. HAGGAI PIPED IN AND ENCOURAGED THEM THAT
GOD WAS WORKING BEHIND THE SCENES AND JEHOVAH
WILL BLESS JERUSALEM WITH A MUCH GREATER TEMPLE
ARRAYED SPLENDOR AND GLORY.
ZECHARIAH – “JEHOVAH REMEMBERS” IS THE MEANING OF
HIS GIVEN NAME. HE JOINED HAGGAI IN AROUSING AND
ENCOURAGING THE RETURNED CAPTIVES IN BUILDING
THE SANCTUARY OF JEHOVAH GOD. THE TEMPLE WAS
FINALLY BUILT IN FOUR YEARS AND DEDICATED TO GOD.
HIS PROPHESIES LOOKED FAR BEYOND INTO THE FUTURE,
TO THE COMING OF OUR MESSIAH AND THE DAWN OF A
BETTER AND BRIGHTER TOMORROW.
MALACHI – THE LAST MINOR PROPHET OF THE OLD
TESTAMENT AND HIS NAME BEARS “MY MESSENGER”.
HE REBUKES THE SINS AND FOLLIES OF THE JEWS. HE
PREDICTED THE PREPARATION OF HIS WAY [MESSIAH]
BY JOHN THE BAPTIST. HE ALSO REPROVED NEGLECTFUL
PRIESTS AND WARNS STERNLY ABOUT THE JUDGMENT
TO COME UPON THE NATION THAT HAD TURNED BACK TO
SINFUL WAYS AFTER BEING PROVIDENTIALLY RETURNED
FROM EXILED IN CAPTIVITY.
