Righteousness fulfilled

Mat 3:15-17…And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him. And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased

Righteousness was fulfilled this day of John’s Baptism of Christ. The Law was honored. Jesus was anointed with the Holy Spirit and inaugurated into the Priesthood. An earthly Priesthood began…ministering truth to deceived Israel.

The glorious day of John’s Baptism brought true moral righteousness to Israel. Jesus was 30 years old and had to be 30 years of age according to the holiness of the Law. This was necessary before Christ could minister in the Temple. Anointing (that signified God’s ownership) allowed the Anointed One to minister true Torah….to backslidden Israel. Anointed One simply means, “Messiah” in Hebrew. Jesus fulfilled all righteousness required according to God’s Law given to Israel. John baptized Jesus with water and the earthly ministry of Christ began. The promised Kingdom on Earth was presented to Israel for three years.

The perfect and sinless Christ was God’s Promise for backslidden Israel to hear and convert. The King of Israel had come preaching the Kingdom was at hand. John’s Baptism made Christ eligible to preach a righteousness that would exceed the righteousness of the Pharisee’s and the Sanhedrin. The stage was set according to the perfect will of God. Thy King had come…as promised. The Anointed one spoken of by the Prophets was now ministering in the Temple and Synagogues, rebuking traditions of men, purging out old leaven, and establishing true righteousness in Israel. The promised Messiah had come preaching the Kingdom of Heaven was at hand!

John’s Baptism of Christ was an inauguration to become an Earthly Priest ordained by God to minister to the needs of backslidden Israel. Righteousness was fulfilled and the ascension of the Holy Spirit like a dove proved such publicly. The Anointed One had come. The Son of God began His earthly ministry in obedience to Mosaic Law with perfect obedience to keep the Law.  The perfect and sinless Christ was God’s Promise for backslidden Israel to hear and convert to true righteousness. The Anointed One came bringing such truth. The inauguration into the Priesthood after the order of Melchizedek had begun with John’s Baptism. The Earthly Kingdom of Heaven was presented as righteousness was fulfilled.

    As we read Mark 1:10-11 …10Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opening, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him; 11and a voice came out of the heavens: “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.” We know he satisfied His Father’s will and purpose. Praise The Lord.
