About this video:
Luke says they were all wondering in their hearts if John might possibly be the Christ. Why were they so excited? John had come and explained to them the fulfillment of a certain prophecy. And when he said “The kingdom of heaven is at hand”, he meant it. It was a truth.

The Prophet John showed up on the scene to herald the appearing of Messiah right on time. He was a miracle just like Jesus was a miracle; not the same father but the same kind of miracle. And John had explained to the people the prophecy predicting the appearing of the messiah, and this is why the Bible says that people were waiting expectantly.

Wake-up America Seminars is a non-profit / non-prophet organization. We are dedicated solely to proclaiming the imminent return of Jesus Christ. We are not affiliated, endorsed, nor sponsored by any religious organization; we, quite frankly, haven't found one that would have us. This is not a clandestine method of getting you to join a church because Wake-up America seminars is not a church — we have no prisoners (members). We are an organization that is dedicated to education. Our mission is to inspire and encourage people into the Word of God, and what church may mean to you or what church may be to you is something between you and your Lord. Finally, the basis for the views presented in this seminar is limited to the Bible; the only authority that I except for matters in doctrine and spiritual guidance come from the Bible.
