Ask a College English Professor to examine Acts 2:38 They will tell you Jesus is the name of the Father, Jesus is the name of the Son, and Jesus is the name of the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, If you have seen me you have seen the Father Jesus is the Son, as He is God robed in flesh 100 God 100 man. Jesus is the Holy Ghost, He is a Spirit and he that worships Him must worship Him in Spirit and truth. See also John Ch. 3:5-20. Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: Deuteronomy 6:4
Search the scriptures for in them u think u have salvation. Faith without works are dead. Jesus said, hehaye that Believeth on me as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water, this spake he of the Holy Ghost Acts 2:38 Peter obeyed, Jesus in Luke 24:45-49. I pray God open your understanding. Acts 8:15-16, acts 10: 43-47, acts 19:1-6, 16:33. They risked there lives to be baptized- acts 19, they were rebaptized. It is Gods pattern, Wash at the laver that u die not.
Baptism requires the work of a mortal man. Salvation does not come from any works. It comes by calling on the name of the Lord. We are saved by grace, thru faith, not of works lest any man should boast. Jesus ' blood is all that was required for the atonement of our sins. If we believe in Jesus, repent of our sins and ask him to save us, that is all that is required for salvation. Baptism is an important thing to show that we have changed and are now a child of God but it has nothing to do with receiving the gift of salvation.
The Bible clearly says unless ye be born again of Water and of spirit... Ye shall NOT enter into the kingdom. Why did anyone that was not baptized in the name of Jesus Christ go back and get rebaptized in the name of Jesus. If it 's not important why did Jesus do it himself. Moses didn 't think the small things were important either and hit the rock instead of speaking to it and for his disobedience he would never enter into the promise land. God is very literal and expects us to obey. When we do it out way we get punished.
Care of my brother STEPHEN HOOPERS The reason people do not like Acts 2:38,is it donot agree with the doctrine of the Trinity.There is no record of water baptism in the titles or trinity in the word of God.After Jesus rose from the dead,he spoke to the Apostles for forty days,he told them to baptize in the father,and the son,and the holy ghost.The apostles went forth and baptized in the name of jesus.Either jesus is the name of the father,and of the son,and of the holy ghost,or the apostles did not obey what jesus commanded them to do.I believe the apostles were right,they were guided by the holy spirit.I thank God for this truth.God bless apostles Knew THE NAME of this FATHER,SON,HOLY GHOST its not "baptize in the father, and the son and the holy ghost " it should be Baptizing them " "IN THE NAME " " ' singular this is you pastor brother mentor what is you name Stephen Hoopers mathew 28:19 go ye therefore, and teach all nations, Baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost NAME is singular baptizing them " "INTHE NAME " " " "who 's name? " of the FATHER of course who is that Father is the FATHER is a name or a tittle and of the " SON " is the SON is name or a tittle and of the "HOLY GHOST " is the HOLY GHOST is a name or tittle Acts 2:38 then peter said unto them, repent, and be baptized every one of you IN THE NAME of JESUS CHRIST for the remission of sins, and ye SHALL received the gift of HOLY GHOST.
Shocking that any man would say the Father of all creation is a person human being ! He certainly manifested Himself quite well in the person of Jesus Christ, as well as many other ways and the Holy Spirit God is a Spirit of the Eternal Father of All has been at work on this earth since the onset of creation. He is omnipotent, omniscient and omnipresent...no man can split Him up into separate parts!!! Pray about this as you read the entire Bible again and again and again!! God bless! OL
Mark 16:16 He believes AND IS baptized shal be saved.
A person can not be saved without being filled with the holy ghost and there is no other name given by which we must be saved Jesus the name Jesus is god and god all by himself . Now baptism in Jesus name gives you this promise and god is not slack concerning his promises. Here 's another secret though its all about your heart and where u are concerning repentance the holy ghost is not given just because you are baptized in Jesus name its given when you truly want it and you break down sorrowfully humbly realizing your desperate need for Jesus to save your soul this can happen with out baptism look at john and the thief on the cross the lord can and will save who he so chooses and who humbly seeks him above and beyond all things although without his name there is no power and there is no promise it is a lot less likely for you to come into the truth and truly accept Jesus the name the one lord and the one baptism
In Acts 2:39 it explains that a person has to be "called " by the Lord JESUS our GOD , to receive this truth ! ..
The name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost is Jesus Christ! He that hath ears to hear, let him hear!
