“And think not to say within yourselves, We have Abraham to our father: for I say unto you, that God is able of these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.”
King James Version (KJV)

Comments by Alex about y Jesus was water baptised,it goes back to the O.T. Moses had said if a house has a leprosy or a scall it wd have to be washed with with the blood of a dove. The priest wd have to take 2 turtle doves and wash them by running water but 1 wd have to be a sacrificial dove and be killed and his blood sprinkled on the living bird which is the Church,Christ was our sacrificial dove thats y the dove descended on Jesus.Turtle doves are lovers just like Christ and the CHURCH are lovers.Husbands love your wives as Christ loved the church and gave his life for it ( the sacrificial dove ) . In Song of Solomon the 2 lovers are Christ and the Church but they refer to each other as having Doves EYES,Christ and his disciples answer to the 2 turtle doves that had to be washed by running water th Jordan was running water,John th bap. answers to the Hi Priest that was of the tribe of Levi, he did the baptism th washing. Song of solomon says while the king sits at his table my spicknard sends for as sweet smell, We are all in the house of Simon the leper we all are unclean but jESUS answers to the sacrificial dove that wd have to be killed and his blood sprinkled on the living bird th Church. Thats y JESUS was water baptised he answers to the sacrificial dove, thats y that dove descended on JESUS, AS TH SACRIFICIAL DOVE HE HAD TO BE WASHED BY RUNNING WATER, THE JORDAN WAS RUNNING WATER.All the disciples answer to the CHURCH THE LIVING BIRD THAT WAS SET FREE,Whom the son sets free is free indeed. But Jesus knew that they had all been water baptised But he tells them if i WASH thee not you will have no part with me which speaks volumes of a greater baptism coming with his blood the CROSS,you are made clean by the WORD i have spoken unto you. He tells his own disciples that had been water baptised, If I wash thee not you will have NO part with me. Which is H.G. BAPTISM, Even in the time of Moses without the shedding of blood there can be no remission Sin. Th Cross

Mt. 3:5-9: As John the Baptist was baptising (unto repentance), some Pharisees & Saducees had also come to see the spectacle. John basically told them that you talk of repentance but you have no fruit to show for it. And knowing their beliefs that Jews claim to be the children of Abraham (i.e. they only have the right to enter Heaven regardless of how they live their lives), John, looking down at the stones about him, said that from these very stones, God is able to raise children to Abraham. John not only opposed their belief system but in a sense, was saying that even Gentiles would one day have the opportunity. And through Jesus' Sacrifice, all nations can be saved through faith in Jesus.

John the baptist is warning the religious leaders that Jehovah God will raise up stones from the Gentiles unto Abraham. Thus fulfilling the prophecy that Abraham's seed will be as the sands of the sea shore.
