Baptism and Salvation


Recommended Posts

Not every Baptism performed is approved by God!  

Therr is only ONE BAPTISM that God approved of, and it is the baptism that comes as a result of the true teachings of Jesus Christ... That is tha baptism that saves and put only those who obeyed the teachings of Christ  into the church, which is the body of Christ. Acts 2:47, Col.1:18, Eph.1:22-23.

There are MANY people who are baptized in various ways, whose baptism is INVALID. Which means - you are not baptized in the specified way that will cause God to recognize you! You only got wet in a religious way!

That makes you STILL dirty!
That makes you STILL living in your sins!
That STILL place you under condemnation!
That means you are STILL cut off from God!
That means you are STILL outside of Christ!
That means you are STILL in darkness and have no hope!
That means you have NO SPIRITUAL BLESSINGS!
That means you are STILL a child of the devil and NOT a child of God!

*Some people claimed they are saved then got baptized; that is Biblically wrong! Jesus said..."He who believeth and is baptized shall be saved"... Mark 16:16.
*Some people got water poured on your head for baptism; that is Biblically wrong! Rom.6:4 said..."Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life."
*Some people got water sprinkled on your head for baptism; that is Biblically wrong! The bible said baptism is a burial, Rom.6:4, Col.2:12.
*Some of you called upon the name of the Lord and claimed that you are saved; that is Biblically wrong! Jesus said..." Not everyone that say unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter the kingdom"... Matt.7:21.
*Some people held on to their radio or television set and said the sinner's prayer; that is Biblically wrong! The word of God said..."Now we know that God does not hear sinners..." John 9:31.
*Some people went to the altar and tarry for the Holy Ghost; that too is Biblically wrong! I know it WAS NOT God's Holy Ghost you tarried for. The question is asked..."What are you tarrying for...?" Acts 22:16.
*Some people claimed that they received the Holy Spirit BEFORE they got saved; that too is Biblically wrong! No one receive the Holy Spirit until they obey the gospel of Christ, Acts 2:38.
*Some people ... in fact, MILLIONS of people were taught the WRONG doctrine and once you have obeyed the wrong doctrine that you were taught, there is NO WAY you can be Biblically right in God's sight UNTIL you get the correct teachings and obey the correct teachings just as John's twelve disciples did in Acts 19:1-5.

The bible said..., "there is a way that seems right to a man, but the ends thereof are the WAYS of death!" Pro.14:12, and... “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are My ways higher than your ways,
and My thoughts than your thoughts." Isa.55:8-9

Until you do it God's way ... you have either done it your way, man's way, or the devil's way! 

Only God's way is the right way!  
Until you ...
👉🏿Hear the Gospel of Christ, Acts 15:7, Romans 10:17.
👉🏿Believe the Gospel of Christ, Mark 16:15-16, Hebrews 11:6.
👉🏿Repent of your sins, Luke 13:3-5, Acts 17:30.
👉🏿Confess your faith in Christ, Acts 8:37, Rom.10:9-10
👉🏿Baptized in water for remission of your sins, Acts 2:38, Acts 22:16, 1 Peter 3:21.
... you are STILL spiritually dead and cut off from God in your trespasses and your sins!

Please note the events that took place in Acts Chapter 2 and Acts chapter 10 - Those events were super natural or extraordinary. 

Both times super naturally acquired abilities to speak foreign intelligent languages took place. At minimum we know that this is what happens when a person is baptized not in water, but in the Holy Spirit. One must understand that there is a difference between the 👉🏿baptism👈🏿 of the Holy Spirit and the 👉🏿gift👈🏿 of the Holy Spirt. Holy Spirit baptism yields super natural events. But you must know that there is no Holy Spirit baptism today!

For one thing, God said there is only one baptism in effect today, Ephesians 4:5. The other thing is... if Holy Spirit baptism was taking place today, super natural physically visible events would also be taking place at the same time just as it was in the Bible. The point I am making is that Holy Spirit baptism is NOT proof that a person is saved. It is proof that God is about to do something that He had never done on earth before. Both times the full gospel was being preached. The gospel WAS NOT fully preached before Christ resurrected because God had not revealed it fully to the world UNTIL AFTER Christ resurrected. 

In Acts chapter 2, the gospel was presented to the Jews for the first time. In Acts chapter 10, it was presented to the gentiles for the first time. Holy Spirit baptism IS NOT proof that a person is saved because that was not the purpose of Holy Spirit baptism. 

Today, whosoever become obedient to the gospel of Jesus Christ receives the gift of the Holy Spirit... not the baptism of the Holy Spirit! They receive the gift of the Holy Spirit when they are baptized in water for the remission of sins just like God said through Peter in Acts 2:38.

Baptism For The Remission Of Sins
Mike Riley 
In the religious world today there is much controversy over the subject of baptism. Some believe it is necessary to obedience and one may not refuse to submit, but it is not essential to our becoming a child of God. Others believe it is not necessary at all while others believe it is a prerequisite in becoming a Christian, that baptism is for the remission of sins.
What Do The Scriptures Say?
Peter was asked by the those assembled on Pentecost, “What should we do?” (Acts 2:37). He replied, “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins” (Acts 2:38). The expression, “for the remission of sins” is literally “into (to, unto, with a view toward) the remission of sins.” Also note that inspiration puts (1) repent and (2) baptism before (3) “remission of sins.”
Argument Over The Word “For”
Some in the religious world argue that the word “for” before “remission of sins” is translated from the Greek word “eis” and means “because of.” In other words, one is to repent and be baptized “because” his sins have already been forgiven.
First, that would be a strange interpretation putting repentance after one becomes a Christian rather than before. Can one be saved without repentance (Luke 13:3,5; Luke 24:47; Acts 17:30-31)? Secondly, it is also interesting that Jesus himself tied baptism with belief (faith) in Mark 16:16. He also put “saved” after both belief and baptism. If one is saved before repentance and baptism, then the same would hold true of belief (faith) in Mark 16:16. Is one saved before he believes that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God?
The Greek Expression “Eis” And A Similar Passage
Does the Greek expression “eis”, rendered “for” in Acts 2:38 mean “because of?” If the expression means one is already saved before he repents and is baptized, it would have that meaning in other passages where it is used. If it does not mean that in other passages, it cannot mean that in Acts 2:38.
When Jesus instituted His supper, he stated in the latter part of Matthew 26:28, “For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.” Who will argue that we are saved before Jesus shed his blood (Hebrews 9:22)? If the expression, “for the remission of sins” means one is saved before what is described prior to the expression in Acts 2:38, then that interpretation must also apply in Matthew 26:28. It would make Jesus saying His blood was shed for many because their sins were already forgiven. Just think, you and I were saved before Jesus shed His blood! If we were, then we were saved by something other than the blood of Jesus!
If the phrase “for the remission of sins” in Matthew 26:28 means Jesus’ blood was shed “in order” that you and I might receive the remission of our sins, then the same expression in Acts 2:38 means you and I repent and are baptized “in order” to receive the remission of sins.
