Matthew 3:16

16 And 1having been baptized, Jesus went up immediately from the water, and behold, the 2heavens were aopened to Him, and He saw the 3Spirit of God descending like a 4bdove and coming cupon Him.

162 The Lord's being baptized to fulfill God's righteousness and to be put into death and resurrection brought Him three things: the open heavens, the descending Spirit of God, and the speaking of the Father. It is the same with us today.
