Jesus, Confirmed By The Spirit (20101027)

Then John gave this testimony: ‘I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him.  33  I would not have known him, except that the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is he who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’ 34  I have seen and I testify that this is the Son of God.”  (John 1:32-34, NIV).

How would you know which one was the true Christ?  After all, there were others that had claimed to be the Messiah.  In 4 B.C. there was Simon Peraea, and in 3 B.C. there was Anthronges, and now there was Jesus.  But it is not so much what we say about ourselves is it?  When push comes to shove, it comes down to what others say about us.  And God said he would reveal the true Messiah by having his Holy Spirit descending upon him.  And John the Baptist testifies that the One the Spirit descended upon was Jesus!
