Repent you Generation of Snakes video. Repent you Generation of Snakes! (Luke 3:1-6) John was tough on the “religious” ideology of people. Calling those people a generation of vipers (KJV) was a serious slap in the face.

To God, they were a generation of snakes. Religious people can be poisonous.

After 400 years of silence, since the prophet Malachi, God sent a prophet. The word of God came to John. Luke gives us seven names – five people in political power and two people in religious power. Then he said John son of Zechariah. The point is John was neither. John was not politically affiliated nor religiously affiliated. John was neither religiously correct nor politically correct. John didn’t come from politics or from religion. John came from the desert. John was different from anyone or anything seen before. John was in this generation but not of this generation. Let’s get an image of this preacher. Here’s what Matthew said…
