“And John bore witness, saying, “I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and He remained upon Him. I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptise with water said to me, ‘Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, this is He who baptises with the Holy Spirit.’ And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God.”
-John the Baptist baptized with water at the river Jordan preaching repentance of sin & witnessed that Jesus baptizes by the Spirit in fulfilling all righteousness by His blood. The dove was a physical sign of the Holy Spirit descending & remaining on Jesus. The three witnesses in heaven; the Father confirmed that Christ is His Son after Jesus was baptized with water & the Spirit completed the cycle by descending upon Him as documented in 1 John 5:6-8. John truly witnessed Christ having seen the Light that came to save mankind from all darkness & enlightens us to let our light shine upon all men so that others may know Him & believe in Him for eternal life.
Jesus Christ our Redeemer, You shed blood for all mankind that we may live in light & witness Your works in our daily lives, have mercy on us. Help us to be Your true witnesses in all our words & deeds that through us others may believe in You. Dwell in us Holy Spirit that we may forever enjoy Your kingdom presence by Your grace in all the earth. Amen
