Evidence of men’s fallibility can be seen in Mark 1:1-4, Mark combine part of Malachi 3:1 and Isaiah 40:3 to proclaim John the baptise to be a messenger of GOD, which is a holy angel. Reading the full context, both verse are clearly referring to Jesus second coming! Is men allowed to put words into GOD’s mouth? If GOD allows Mark to do that, GOD is clearly telling us that men is fallible! Therefore words from GOD directly is final, we need to listen to Jesus’ instruction as stated in Matthew 3:17, 17:5, Mark 9:7, Luke 9:35, 2Peter 1:17, “Listen to him”. Though there is a need to be aware of the master imitator, anti-Christ, Satan. While men’s words and men’s records needs to be consistent with the rest of the scripture, to ensure that he has not fallen into Satan’s deceit.
Mark 1:1-4 (author) Mark implied that John the Baptise is a messenger, preparing the way for Jesus.
1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God. 2 As it is written in Isaiah the prophet, “Behold, I send my messenger before your face, who will prepare your way, 3 the voice of one crying in the wilderness: ‘Prepare the way of the Lord, make his paths straight,'” 4 John appeared, baptizing in the wilderness and proclaiming a baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sins.
Malachi 3:1-4 (GOD) God’s prophecy of Jesus second coming.
“Behold, I send my messenger, and he will prepare the way before me. And the Lord whom you seek will suddenly come to his temple; and the messenger of the covenant in whom you delight, behold, he is coming, says the LORD of hosts.
Isaiah 40:3 (Angel) GOD’s prophecy of Jesus second coming.
3 A voice cries: “In the wilderness prepare the way of the LORD; make straight in the desert a highway for our God. 4 Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain. 5 And the glory of the LORD shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together, for the mouth of the LORD has spoken.”
Elias, Malachi 4:5-6
