LOOKING TO PRAISE AND WORSHIP JESUS THE CHRIST, THE SON OF THE LIVING GOD. 18 No man has ever seen God at any time; the only unique Son, or the only begotten God, Who is in the bosom [in the intimate presence] of the Father, He has declared Him [He has revealed Him and brought Him out where He can be seen; He has interpreted Him and He has made Him known].

From number 3 - "In one sense, his (John the Baptist's) was a unique ministry which can never again be repeated, inasmuch as the same circumstances will never be duplicated. But there is a wider sense in which a similar message is always in order, for man’s heart remains unchanged and the King is still seeking those who will acknowledge and bow to His authority. Hence the importance of always insisting on the need of repentance, a state of soul which must always precede blessing."

Gary O. Edmonson - You may comment here. I've never banned you from here. Please feel free to comment. I may take some time to answer though because I have a lot going on these next couple of days.

From number 5, H.A. Ironside -

"True, forgiveness is by faith, but there can be no faith without repentance, and no repentance without faith. What God hath joined together, let no man put asunder."

"Surely no sane, thoughtful reader of the record can escape the conclusion that repentance, while in no sense meritorious, is nevertheless a prerequisite to saving faith. An unrepentant man can never, in the very nature of things, lay hold of the gospel message in appropriating faith, thus receiving the Lord Jesus as his own personal Saviour."
