Then Jesus came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. John tried to prevent him, saying, "I need to be baptized by you, and yet you are coming to me?"
Jesus said to him in reply, "Allow it now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he allowed him.
After Jesus was baptized, he came up from the water and behold, the heavens were opened (for him), and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove coming upon him.
And a voice came from the heavens, saying, "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased."
A time of Jesus, the Holy Spirit and Father God:
In this Scripture we see the Living Water of Jesus combined with the Fire of the Holy Spirit being shown as a dove.
We know the fires in Canada have been devastating. CNN reports today the weather may be changing to help end the 400,000 acre wildfire.
And we know with God all things are possible and when we watch the news, let's see all of us pray together for the end of the fire, the 80,000 citizens and the Mercy of Father God. I cannot even begin to fathom the loss.
Miraculous things happen from prayer and should not be forgotten. Let's have gratitude for the Mercy of Father God.
See the water reverse in the 2nd minute.
Videos reported in 2006, 2008 and 2009 the Jordan River reversed the flow the day before Epiphany. Jesus tells us to always remember Jesus is still working and so is His Father.
And an eye witness account.
When we center our faith upon Jesus, Father God does amazing Acts of God.
Rivers have been prone to reverse flow, however this reverse flow occurs only as the cross is in the water. This is the answered prayer, keeping their eyes on the Cross of Jesus Christ the Lord with faith.
You have invited us in John 14, to pray asking in the Name of Jesus for Your Intervention. We pray healing on this land, these people and families, this town and upon ourselves.
Today, Yesterday, and Tomorrow - Scriptures record You, our Father as the Living God.
We will cast up our cares and know Your Love.
In Jesus, Amen.
