Matthew 11:7-15:

“And as they departed, Jesus began to say unto the multitudes concerning John, What went ye out into the wilderness to see? A reed shaken with the wind? But what went ye out for to see? A man clothed in soft raiment? behold, they that wear soft clothing are in kings’ houses. But what went ye out for to see? A prophet? yea, I say unto you, and more than a prophet. For this is he, of whom it is written, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy way before thee. Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force. For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John.  And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.”

Christ himself told us again that John was the messenger that will come with the power of Elijah. This messenger the Lord has promised us has come back to the earth to prepare the way before Christ. The recording of the messages from John the Baptist can be found in the book The Word of the Lord (brought to mankind by an angel). These instructions that God has sent down from heaven have reestablished Christ’s Church on earth and the priesthood that goes with it.
