Suddenly John the Baptist started preaching in the wilderness of Judea, telling people to repent because the kingdom of heaven would be there shortly. Matthew identified John for us,

For this is he who was spoken of by the prophet Isaiah, saying:

“The voice of one crying in the wilderness:
‘Prepare the way of the LORD;
Make His paths straight.’”
(Matthew 3.3) 

The time for the kingdom to be on the earth had arrived and that meant that the King would be there. Therefore, the Lord sent out a man to run before Him, announcing the arrival of the kingdom and its King. People had to prepare for the way of the Lord, preparing their hearts to receive Him.
