John the Baptist: The Prophecy of John the Baptist

[Blended Gospels, ESV, Matthew 3:11-12, Mark 1:7-8, Luke 3:15-18]
As the people were in expectation, and all were questioning in their hearts concerning John, whether he might be the Christ. And John answered them all, saying “I have baptized you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit. I baptize you with water, but he who is mightier than I is coming, the strap of whose sandals I am not worthy to untie.

He preached, saying, "After me comes he who is mightier than I. I baptize you with water for repentance, He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, to clear his threshing floor and to gather the wheat into his barn, but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire."

So with many other exhortations he preached good news to the people.
