Just show it! There is no mate in 4 (at best defence by Black).

A couple of posters have aluded to it, but I don't think anyone has posted a reason for why the immediate Ra8 (or Ra7) doesn't work. Forcing the king an extra square away from the pawns on the 3rd rank is important, as the king is forced up the board to avoid mate. It doesn't quite work out if you don't play Ra4+ first.
