The Voice in the Wilderness
However it is evident that there was in his time a religious or spiritual wilderness too.
A Voice In the Wilderness
The people were in confusion much as people are today. John preached with great spirit and power despite all that was against him. You might think it arrogant to compare ourselves to such a great light as John the Baptizer. However, did you not read what Jesus said? He prepared the people for Christ's first coming. It is our job to prepare the world for Christ's second coming Matthew We have looked at the prophecy referring to John the Baptizer as "a voice calling in the wilderness" Isaiah Malachi, the last book of the Old Testament, also prophesies of a messenger of the Lord Malachi Jesus himself interpreted this passage for us, and applied it to John the Baptizer Matthew You will notice that Jesus also says of John the Baptizer that "he himself is Elijah who is to come".
This is another reference to Malachi —to the closing words in fact, of Malachi and of the Old Testament Matthew , Malachi Jesus refers to this matter again later in Matthew, in a response to a question from his disciples Matthew The angel Gabriel, who appeared to Zacharias also confirms this interpretation, and provides us with more information as to the sense in which John the Baptist was Elijah. Gabriel says that John came "in the spirit and power of Elijah" Luke John the Baptizer was not Elijah himself, but the antitype of Elijah who preached with the same spirit and the same power as Elijah.

The question of whether or not John was Elijah literally is settled by John the Baptizer himself. When asked, "Are you Elijah? John Jesus is the way, the truth and the light of the World. He will come again in all His splendor and glory. Are you ready for the only one who can bring about real change to the world?
