The word (Rhema) of God came to John the son of Zacharias in the wilderness. (Luke 3:2)
It was only after the Rhema came did John venture out to preach

Bear fruit worthy of repentance (Luke 3:8)

John had a message for every section of society (Luke 3:7-14)

  1. General people
  2. Tax Collectors – Business
  3. Law Makers

21 When all the people were baptized, it came to pass that Jesus also was baptized; and while He prayed, the heaven was opened. 22 And the Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove upon Him, and a voice came from heaven which said, “You are My beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.” (Luke 3:21-22)
While He prayed:

  1. The heavens opened
  2. The Holy Spirit descended in bodily form like a dove
  3. A voice came from heaven

These three things must happen whenever one prays
