Proof of John
Here is infallible proof that it was John THE BAPTIST who wrote Revelation. The Revelation of Jesus Christ. The one who revealed Jesus to the world. The fore-runner of the Christ.
King James Version
40 Comfort ye, comfort ye my people, saith your God.
2 Speak ye comfortably to Jerusalem, and cry unto her, that her warfare is accomplished, that her iniquity is pardoned: for she hath received of the Lord’s hand double for all her sins.
3 The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God.
4 Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:
When they asked John the Baptist if he were the Christ or Elijah, he said, NO. Then who? He identified himself as the above: the voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord.
There was a man sent from God to do just this. That man was John THE BAPTIST. John was the last OT prophet.
Angels brought the word of God to those prophets.
Jesus himself taught his disciples, including John, the disciple. No angel sent John the disciple with a message revealing the Christ to the world.
Who art thou, O great mountain? before Zerubbabel thou shalt become a plain: and he shall bring forth the headstone thereof with shoutings, crying, Grace, grace unto it.
This is speaking of the same prophet as in Isaiah 40; the great mountain become a plain.
Who cried Grace Grace to Jesus?
John the Baptist.
Who introduced the Lamb of God? John the Baptist:
The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.
And looking upon Jesus as he walked, he saith, Behold the Lamb of God!
John 1: 6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.
7 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe.
Surely you must know that the above is about John THE BAPTIST? NOT THE DISCIPLE!
King James Version
1 The Revelation of Jesus Christ, which God gave unto him, to shew unto his servants things which must shortly come to pass; and he sent and signified it by his angel unto his servant John:
2 Who bare record of the word of God, and of the testimony of Jesus Christ, and of all things that he saw.
Bear witness means the same thing as Bare record.
None other than John THE BAPTIST.
The law and prophets were UNTIL JOHN. Since then the kingdom of God is preached.
You may not know, but the LAW AND PROPHETS were totally different from the APOSTLES AND PROPHETS.
The prophets with the apostles were merely using the gift of prophesy, not receiving and writing the Word of God, as John the Baptist did in Revelation.
You say well this John was in Patmos. Did not the Word say that John the BAPTIST was in the wilderness till his showing to Israel? See, this is proof.
Stop listening to the lies of man and prove all things with the written word of God.
NOT ONE SINGLE WORD OF SCRIPTURE POINTS TO THE DISCIPLE AS THE ONE WHO BORE WITNESS OF JESUS.
John THE BAPTIST holds a special place in the Word and work of God that no other holds. He was born of parents too old and whose mother had been barren all her life.
He had a supernatural birth same as Jesus.
He was filled with the Holy Ghost in her womb. No other is said to have had such as that.
Luke 2: 40 And the child grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.
The Grace of God was upon this child all his life.
John the disciple came to Jesus by hearing John the Baptist.
