How Stubborn Can We Be?

This is the testimony of John, when the Jews sent to him priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, “Who are you?”

And he confessed and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not the Christ.”

They asked him, “What then? Are you Elijah?”

And he said, “I am not.”

“Are you the Prophet?”

And he answered, “No.”

Then they said to him, “Who are you, so that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?”

He said, “I am A VOICE OF ONE CRYING IN THE WILDERNESS, ‘MAKE STRAIGHT THE WAY OF THE LORD,’ as Isaiah the prophet said.”

Now they had been sent from the Pharisees. They asked him, and said to him, “Why then are you baptizing, if you are not the Christ, nor Elijah, nor the Prophet?”

John answered them saying, “I baptize in water, but among you stands One whom you do not know. It is He who comes after me, the thong of whose sandal I am not worthy to untie.” These things took place in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. — John 1:19–28

And he said to me, “Do not seal up the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is near. — Revelation 22:10

One of the foundational rules for handling Scripture where eschatology is concerned is that Christ’s First Coming is a shadow or pattern revealing what will take place at His Second Coming. Just as when He came the first time there was a one-world, self-deified ruler based in Rome who marked everyone for the purposes of financial control (the true meaning and purpose of a “census” in those times), this is a shadow of the ultimate one-world government and working of Antichrist at His Second Coming. There are many such similarities, and one of them is how, when it comes to eschatology—one’s interpretation of the events surrounding Christ’s coming—the same stubbornness repeatedly displayed at His First Coming seems to be a feature once again in these Last Days leading up to His Return.
