What did you go to see in the Wilderness?

In Matthew 11:7-15, Jesus asked the multitude, what did you go to the wilderness to see? A reed shaken in the wind or someone dressed in fine clothes? Did you go to see a prophet, yes more than a prophet. It is written in Malachi 3:1, I will seen my messager before thy face and shall prepare the way of the Lord. Jesus said there is none greater that is born of a woman than John the Baptist. Then He said that the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than John. Jesus said if you can recieve this, John is Elijah come again. John’s father Zacharias was high priest and entered into the holy of holies. The angel Gabriel told Zacharias that he would have a son named John. And to take the prayer shawl and leather girdle of Elijah that was stored under the show bread table. Because John was a prophet who would come in the Spirit of Elijah. John came with a camel hair prayer shawl and a leather girdle, preaching the coming of the Lord. Then Jesus said, those who have ears, let them hear.
