Bible Prophecy, A Voice Crying in the Wilderness

Prophesy by Prophet Isaiah, about 700 B.C.
Isaiah 40:1-3
 "COMFORT, COMFORT My people, says your God. Speak tenderly to the heart of Jerusalem, and cry to her that her time of service and her warfare are ended, that [her punishment is accepted and] her iniquity is pardoned... A voice of one who cries: Prepare in the wilderness the way of the Lord [clear away the obstacles]; make straight and smooth in the desert a highway for our God!"
Prophecy by Prophet Malachi, about 400 B.C.
Malachi 3:1
 "BEHOLD, I send My messenger, and he shall prepare the way before Me. And the Lord [the Messiah], Whom you seek, will suddenly come to His temple; the Messenger of the covenant, Whom you desire, behold, He shall come, says the Lord of hosts."
-------------
Luke 3:1-7, about 30 A.D.
 "And in the fifteenth year of the government of Tiberius Caesar -- Pontius Pilate being governor of Judea, and Herod tetrarch of Galilee, and Philip his brother, tetrarch of Ituraea and of the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias tetrarch of Abilene -- Annas and Caiaphas being chief priests -- there came a word of God unto John the son of Zacharias, in the wilderness, and he came to all the region round the Jordan, proclaiming a baptism of reformation -- to remission of sins, as it has been written in the scroll of the words of Isaiah the prophet, saying, `A voice of one crying in the wilderness, Prepare ye the way of the Lord, straight make ye His paths; every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low, and the crooked shall become straightness, and the rough become smooth ways; and all flesh shall see the salvation of God.' ...Then.. multitudes, coming forth to be baptised by him.."
John 1:36
 "...and he looked at Jesus as He walked, and said,'Behold, the Lamb of God!'...”
John 19:30, about 33 A.D.
 "Jesus said, 'It is finished!' And He bowed His head and gave up His spirit."
Revelation (Apocalypse) 21:1-6 & 22:1
 "And I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth did pass away, and the sea is not any more; and I, John, saw the holy city -- new Jerusalem -- coming down from God out of the heaven, made ready as a bride adorned for her husband; and I heard a great voice out of the heaven, saying, `Lo, the tabernacle of God [is] with men, and He will tabernacle with them, and they shall be His peoples, and God Himself shall be with them -- their God, and God shall wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall not be any more, nor sorrow, nor crying, nor shall there be any more pain, because the first things did go away.' And He who is sitting upon the throne said, `Lo, I make all things new; and He saith to me, `Write, because these words are true and stedfast;' and He said to me, `It has been done! I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End; I, to him who is thirsting, will give of the fountain of the water of the life freely'...
 ...And he showed me a pure river of water of life, bright as crystal, flowing forth out of the throne of God and of the Lamb.."
