Hard words isn’t it? Yet true. Why did John liken multitudes who came to be baptised of him to brood of vipers?
I understand now why since I have many followers also in this group. Believe you me Wake up church is loaded with pastors, prophets, bishops, all sorts. Men and women who come not because they want to change but because they were fearful that Laurence might one day be speaking the truth about them. This is why so many come disguised - Brood of vipers!
The problem John had is, these multitudes he baptised didn’t come to commit, so he told them "repent and believe."
He said, "Bring forth therefore fruits worthy of repentance, and begin not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, That God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham" Luke 3:8
John demanded something of his hearers i.e., repentance, change of heart, belief, and good works. His essential message was simply that we be what we seem to be - live to it. God has told us what to do and be. Do it, and don’t pretend to be something you’re not, pastor you’re not a politician but a servant of God; be what Jesus wants you to be.
