“The baptism of John, was it from heaven, or of men? 5And they reasoned with themselves, saying, If we shall say, From heaven; he will say, Why then believed ye him not? 6But and if we say, Of men; all the people will stone us: for they be persuaded that John was a prophet.” Lk. 20:4-6
The people were persuaded that John was a prophet. Their persuasion was correct. It is no different today than it was in the days of Jesus. We have many religious leaders that don’t have the persuasion that the people have. They don’t have the revelation that the people have. Saints of God, pray that the Lord will raise up strong godly spiritual leaders in the closing hour that will be persuaded of the word of God.
