John the Baptist as well as Jesus disiciples were going about baptising the Jews and teaching the people about repentance.
JOHN:3:31-36 31: “He that cometh from above, is above all: he that is of the earth, is earthly and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. 32: And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth, and no man receiveth his testimony. 33: He that hath receiveth his testimony hath set to his seal that God is true. 34: For he whom God hath sent speaketh the words of God: for God giveth not the spirit by measure unto him. 35: The Father loveth the Son and hath given all things into his hand. 36: He that believeth on the Son have everlasting life: and he that believeth not, the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
John the Baptist is explaining to his disciples and the people who had been baptised by the prophet John that Jesus was the true Messiah come to fulfill the Messianic prophecies, that Jesus was the true Son of God, sent by God and that Jesus was above every man and king and government. Jesus was God in the flesh.
John the Baptist also teaches us that Jesus is the “Word of God” that Jesus did not have to be given God’s words as teachings for the people, Jesus was God’s Word spoken by God.
John the Baptist also teaches that through accepting Jesus and Jesus’s teachings as true, by faith in Jesus and Jesus alone, one would attain everlasting life with God, but, he who refused to believe would not know God and would face eternal damnation and God’s wrath.
Therefore one must ask oneself; Do I believe in the teachings of Jesus? Do I accept Jesus as the true “Word of God”? By faith, do I accept Jesus as my saviour and redeemer, believing that He took my sins upon himself and that I have been cleansed and redeemed?
By faith, if your answer is “Yes” then by your faith you are redeemed, you are justified. You have the right to call God, “Father” and Jesus, “Brother”.
