Are You for Jehovah’s Sovereignty

John also bore witness, saying: “I viewed the spirit coming down as a dove out of heaven, and it remained upon him. 
Even I did not know him, but the very One who sent me to baptize in water said to me: ‘Whoever it is upon whom you see the spirit coming down and remaining, this is the one who baptizes in holy spirit.’
And I have seen it, and I have given witness that this one is the Son of God.”
===============================
A MOMENTOUS event, one that had never before been seen on earth, occurred about October 29 C.E. The Gospel writer Matthew reports: “After being baptized Jesus immediately came up from the water; and, look! the heavens were opened up, and John the Baptizer saw descending like a dove God’s spirit coming upon -Jesus. Look! Also, there was a voice from the heavens that said: ‘This is my Son, the beloved, whom I have approved.’” This was one of the few events that was recorded by all four Gospel writers.

 The visible outpouring of holy spirit upon Jesus identified him as the Anointed One, which term means Messiah, or Christ. At long last, the promised “seed” had appeared! Standing before John the Baptizer was the one whose heel was to be bruised by Satan and who was to bruise the head of that archenemy of Jehovah and His sovereignty.  From that point on, Jesus was fully aware that he must endeavor to fulfill Jehovah’s purpose regarding His sovereignty and the Kingdom.
