John the Baptist "In the Wilderness" by Hieronymus Bosch, 1489

John the Baptist “In the Wilderness” by Hieronymus Bosch, 1489

John the Baptist was the forerunner for the Messiah, but he did not do it alone, he had helpers called “disciples”:

35 Again the next day after John stood, and two of his DISCIPLES; (John 1:35)

18 And the DISCIPLES of John shewed him of all these things. (Luke 7:18)

Jesus did many things on His own, but He too had helpers, also called disciples, and “apostles” and other “seventy.”

1 After these things the Lord appointed other SEVENTY also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. (Luke 10:1–2)

13 And when it was day, he called unto him his DISCIPLES: and of them he chose twelve, whom also he named APOSTLES; (Luke 6:13)

It should be understood that the prophecy of the “Messenger of the Covenant” who will prepare the way for the Messiah’s return will also have helpers; therefore the prophecy should be read in the plural:

1 Behold, I will send my messenger[s], and he they shall prepare the way before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger[s] of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 3:1-3)

To prepare the citizens of Israel, the House of Israel, and the general public, there needs to be a missionary force the size of which the world has never before seen.
