Acts 2:38, " Then Peter said unto them, Repent & be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, & ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost".
Acts 2:39, " It is the promise to you and to your children and to all that are afar off even as many as the Lord our God shall call".
Remember that Jesus gave Peter the keys to the kingdom of heaven earlier in Matthew 16, therefore Peter is not in error.
All through the book of Acts, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus, never in titles.
Matthew 28:19 is fulfilled in Acts 2:38 as it also says "in the name of". Alleluia & amen
If satan succeds in making people make fun of and mock a God's minister and ridicule him so that people place him low in their mind and direspect him then they will not listen to him, he will be preaching (or prophesying) in vain. Elijah realized that trap and reacted accordingly.
It was a hard punishment but that was in the Old Testament. In the New Testament this is not allowed. But still God iservants must be respectful persons.
comes, will this not be God's Wrath?
The whole of chapter 2 in Kings 2 is about the transition of Elijah to Elisha, as foretold.
They journey in a specific order, from Gilgal, Bethel, Jericho and across the Jordan. This is the exact opposite order of how Joshua came to the promised land, indicating this is how Elijah leaves the promised land. Elisha is tested 3 times to stay but he follows Elijah, showing patient faith. Elijah does not admonish him because it really is a test of Elisha's faith, not Elisha disobeying Elijah. Elijah parts the river Jordan on his way out, and Elisha parts in on his way back, showing he has inherited Elijah spirit and power from God.
The LORD GOD ALMIGHTY (Jesus Christ) knows ALL things, like knowing the future of those children and what they would amount to and ultimately that they would end up in Hell.
btw...Confessing that Jesus Christ IS GOD COME IN THE FLESH is THE salvation issue.
These are the days of Elijah: Preparing the way of the LORD.
