In those days John the Baptist came preaching in the wilderness of Judea, “Repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand”…- Matthew 3:1,2
…Now John wore a garment of camel’s hair and a leather belt around his waist, and his food was locusts and honey. Then Jerusalem and all Judea and all the region about the Jordan were going out to him, and they were baptized by him in the river Jordan, confessing their sins. – Matthew 3:4-6
Why would God’s spirit preach in a wilderness? God brought thousands out of the city, away from the comfort, away from the luxury, away from the distractions.
How far would you be willing to go in order to receive the blessings of God?
God wanted to save and preserve those who love Him and leave those in the city to fall to there own demises.
Sometimes we must see the prosperity and blessing in the desert rather than the corrosion and weathering of the city.
Sand erodes by the ocean, but is preserved in the desert
