Dr. Ronnie Wolfe
was a witness, a personal, physical witness of the Lord, Jesus Christ.
What a privilege that was. Even though John was not called an apostle nor
called to be an apostle, he certainly was right up to their par and
lived his life to fulfill his short but successful ministry.
What Message Did He Witness
witnessed that Jesus was preferred before him. John was born before Jesus , but he was preferred in a higher position than John. John was
the baptizer; Jesus was the actual Savior of sinners. John saved no
one, but Jesus saves His people from their sins.
Why Did He Preach This Message?
preached this very message, because, as John says, "He was before me."
He was before John, not in birth, but in position and in time.
John 1:1 where John said, "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word
was with God, and the Word was God." Before John was born of his
mother, Elizabeth, Jesus was in existence. He existed before the
foundation of the world. He has always been and always shall be. Heb
13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
when Jesus was in the tomb dead in the body, He was alive in the
Spirit, and he resurrected from death so that now he lives forever and
shall never die.
Therefore, those who believe and trust Him through saving faith shall live forever. John 11:26 And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die. Believest thou this?
Do you believe this? Read the following verses regarding the blind man that the scribes threw out of the temple . . .
John 9:35-38 Jesus
heard that they had cast him out; and when he had found him, he said
unto him, Dost thou believe on the Son of God? 36 He answered and
said, Who is he, Lord, that I might believe on him? 37 And Jesus said
unto him, Thou hast both seen him, and it is he that talketh with thee.
38 And he said, Lord, I believe. And he worshipped him.
