Matthew Chapter 28 Discussion

    Faith, I agree. I believe the church began with Jesus' ministry at the time of His baptism when He called his first disciples. At Pentecost, the church existed already with the apostles and disciples gathered there in obedience to Jesus instructions. Jesus, before is ascension, before Pentecost, re-taught His disciples all that He had taught them before His crucifixion and resurrection. He opened up the Scriptures from the books of Moses' on to that present time to teach them about Himself. He was teaching His church at this time. He prayed for them at His Last Supper. They were the church then, breaking bread with him and drinking the wine of Communion. The church started with Jesus during His life on earth, in my opinion.

    Acts 10 v 38 How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power : who went about doing good , and healing all that where oppressed of the devil ; for God was with him . V39 And we are witnesses of all things which he did .

    A very fitting verse I read today . The word of God is so wonderful.

    Secret ?

    Mathew 16 v 18

    And I say unto thee thou art Peter and upon this rock I will build my church ; and the gates of hell will not prevail !

    Secret ?

    Faith Works The church of God if that's what you referring to was kept secret by God Romans 16:25+26 and

    1 Peter 1:10-12 and did not start until pentecost.

    Matthew 28 v 18 , 19 , 20

    In verse 18 Jesus says all power is GIVEN unto me in heaven and earth .

    Who is the superior one that gave him this power ? Must be his father God .

    Verse 20 I am with you always , even unto the end of the world

    He is speaking to his disciples , that would be the church .

    How does one see a rapture pretrib in this statement ? It's not there .

    But Matthew 28: 18 is after he was risen, His blood resulted in a new covenant which was the baptism of Promise ,Baptising them in the Name of the father Son and the H.G. was the baptism of Promise. As Jesus said wait for the Promise of the Father Which ye have heard of me ( his words seeds etc) ye shall be baptised with the H.G not many days hence which was the Promise baptism. As the H.G. fell on them that heard his words etc. Back in the upper room he breathe on them which was his breath his words the good seeds but the Child did not come till Pentecost,b/f the cross they only received the good seed, his breathe etc. The H.G. was the Child of Promise that did not come till Pentecost,That mighty rushing wind was the H.G. the Child of Promise . That which is Born of the spirit is spirit thats the H.G. the Child of Promise. Unless ya receive the Kingdom of God as a lil Child ye will in no wise enter there in. Remember he told em b/c i have spoken these words his seeds, his breath, sorrows have filled your hearts a spritual pregnancy etc. But after the Child comes her sorrows are turned into joy. The new Birth, The Church is the woman that is gona birth a baby CHRIST. via his seeds etc. When Jeremiah saw the new covenant he also saw All men in travail and birth pains. The Child is the H.G A HEAVENLY JACOB THE GRANSON THAT WILL RESULT IN AN Israel of God. A time of Jacobs troubles there is gonna be war in heaven when the woman gives birth her Child is the H.G. tHAT heavenly JACOB MEANING THERE IS GONNA BE AN ISRAEL OF GOD that is gona be as the stars of heaven. k later

    To be baptised in His name is to confess Romans 10:9+10 which equals John 24:29 which equals Acts 1: 5-8 water has nothing to do with it its receiving god's Holy Spirit.
  • Dianne - in Reply on Matthew 28
    Last command given by Jesus Christ to the Disciples Acts 1:4-9 when you believe Romans 10:9=10 from your heart inner most part of your being. You receive Gods gift holy spirit, eternal life we become a Child of God. We are a new creation in Christ, by God through Christ we have been made righteous, sanctified, justified,redeemed, and have been given the ministry of reconciliation 2 Corinthians 5:19. what a package deal. God Bless.
  • Puleng on Matthew 28
    What does that mean by saying baptise in the name of Jesus name. and in the name of father son and holy spirit
  • Rachel Briggs on Matthew 28
    praise the lord

    this shows what we are facing today as christians. lies,doubt and money. this must not dampen our love towards God through his son Jesus but should be used as the foundation to know about Christ more and more and to dispel the lies, doubt and the selfish use of money.

    that is my view.
  • Dianne - in Reply on Matthew 28
    Chelsea you don't need anyone around to be saved and baptized Confess romans 10:9+10 and believe, I've known people who got born again in closets, hospital beds, jail cells, etc. that is between you and the father also to receive Holy spirit is the same thing, God is more willing to give than we are to receive. Also no body is good enough that's why we have a saviour its not given by merit its given because we need it and God knows that. All things of God are given freely, we just need to do whats written to recieve. Also you don't need water look at Acts 1:4-6 so believe and receive. God Bless
  • Chelsea - in Reply on Matthew 28
    Thank you so much for taking the time to talk to me and guide me in faith so swiftly. Bless you for all you have done for me. I pray that anything ailing you or weighing on you is healed just as swiftly as you have helped me. In jesus' name I pray. thank you Lord. Amen
  • Chris - in Reply on Matthew 28
    Hello Chelsea. Further to what Adam has written & what I had earlier written to someone else who was in a similar situation to you: there are some Churches who will want you to fellowship with them & even participate in their Bible studies so that they can know you & establish your testimony by your witness & faithfulness before they will baptize. However, that is not a biblical requirement - generally Christians of the New Testament churches were baptized very soon after believing/being saved upon the testimony of salvation - baptism by the Spirit (being born again) & water baptism essentially go hand-in-hand.

    Since you have now felt the need to be baptized, have you spoken to the preacher who first led you to the Lord? Even though he may be old or possibly incapable, he can verify your faith & even suggest/appoint someone to baptize you. And baptism does not need to be done in a baptismal font in a Church building - a river, a swimming pool, the beach, etc. would do just fine. Generally, the one who shares the Gospel & leads that person to salvation should also take the responsibility to see to the baptism ( Acts 8:27-39) - but I realize that nowadays, that's certainly not the case & baptism becomes just an added-on appendage.

    And continue to be a loving wife to your unsaved husband - I can hardly imagine how difficult & distressing such a situation can be at times. Let your devotion to the Lord & your love & faithfulness to your husband always be evident to him, that he would have no accusation against your life & witness, & perchance, by your exemplary behaviour, your witness might speak mightily to his heart of the power of Christ & the Gospel. Remain strong in the Lord, sister.
  • Adam - in Reply on Matthew 28
    Hi Chelsea,

    I'm not aware of any requirements the Bible has for someone baptizing another. But it's my opinion, that the person should be a Christian and should already be baptized him or herself. The examples of people baptizing in the Bible were Christian leaders (disciples).

    But I also don't believe all churches require membership to be baptized. In my decades of church involvement, I'm not aware of any church that required that. The churches would happily baptize anyone who wanted to be- it's something encouraged and celebrated, not discouraged. So, I believe that if you simply asked a few more churches that you would find a 'yes', unless you have certain demands or requirements yourself you have imposed on them, such as not doing it during a service, but privately. God bless!
  • Chelsea on Matthew 28
    I was saved a few months ago. I am a stay at home mother with a husband who has no interest in church so I attend church every day on tv when he is not home. I want to be babtized but churches near me require I attend their church for months before they will baptize me. I honor my husband by keeping my faith to myself. His father lead me in my faith and was a Pentecostal preacher. He briefly lost his faith and stopped preaching but is now as faithful as ever. Can my father in law baptize me since no one else is willing to?

  • Brother Dan - in Reply on Matthew 28:1
    I do not believe the bible specifically states Saturday is the Sabbath. But I have also not seen mention of the other specific days of the week (ie. Wed, Thurs. etc.).

    The Jewish people have always observed the Sabbath as Saturday. Jesus was a Jew and he observed Saturday/Sabbath as well.

    Most everyone in the world will agree that Sunday is the 1st day of the week. Check all of the dictionary's and they will state that Saturday is the last day of the week.

    So the last day, or 7th day of the week is Saturday and has been for centuries.

    Here in scripture below reference to Jesus preparation for burial prior to Saturday/Sabbath.

    Mark 15:42

    "And now when the even was come, because it was the preparation, that is, the day before the sabbath,"

    Exodus 20:11

    "For in six days the LORD made heaven and earth, the sea, and all that in them is, and rested the seventh day: wherefore the LORD blessed the sabbath day, and hallowed it."

    Luke 4:16

    "And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for to read."

    So God rested on the 7th day, and he gave a gift to us, the 4th Commandment, to also rest our body and mind from our normal weekday working activities, among other things to pray, give thanks and reflect on God. A day to breath! It really is a wonderful gift!

    God Bless

    C, may CHRIST IN US grace us with HIS wisdom and HIS understanding.

    Man cannot see himself being something other than what he is now in this flesh.

    Flesh and blood CANNOT inherit the next world. We have to be RE-CREATED to inherit the SPIRIT world.

    There is no works that we can do to accomplish this.

    The WORKS OF CHRIST will bring this about.

    John 6:63 It is the Spirit that quickeneth; the flesh profiteth nothing: the words that I speak unto you the are SPIRIT, and they (the words that are SPIRIT) GIVE LIFE.

    The flesh lives in a world of time, the SPIRIT lives in a world where time does not exist.

    In the Old Covenant man was given laws,

    One being to observe the seventh day as a day of rest; Physical SABBATH.

    When the SPIRIT comes to you and HIS WORDS BECOME words of SPIRIT (life); time is no more:

    The SABBATH became SPIRIT and we REST in SPIRIT; or we rest IN CHRIST.

    We have ceased from OUR WORKS as he ceased from his works.

    Hebrews 10:1 For the law was a shadow (not the real thing) of things to come...

    Hebrews 4:10 For he that hath entered into HIS REST, he also hath ceased from his works, as God did from his.

  • I have grown up to belive that Sunday is the sabbath day ,now some are saying that Saturday is the sabbath day ,can you show me in the bible where it states the named day of the sabbath by God.

    Thank You

    Matthew 16:18-19 KJV

    [18] And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. [19] And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.

    Matthew 28:18-19 KJV

    [18] And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. [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:

    John 1:1-2 KJV

    [1] In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. [2] The same was in the beginning with God.

    John 1:9-14 KJV

    [9] That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world. [10] He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not. [11] He came unto his own, and his own received him not. [12] But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: [13] Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. [14] And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

    John 1:17-18 KJV

    [17] For the law was given by Moses, but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ. [18] No man hath seen God at any time; the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him.

    John 3:16 KJV

    [16] For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    John 8:58 KJV

    Matthew 28:19 KJV

    [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:

    Acts 1:2-3,15,26 KJV

    [2] Until the day in which he was taken up, after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments unto the apostles whom he had chosen: [3] To whom also he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs, being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God: [15] And in those days Peter stood up in the midst of the disciples, and said, (the number of names together were about an hundred and twenty,) [26] And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias; and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

    Acts 2:1,4 KJV

    [1] And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. [4] And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

    Acts 2:38 KJV

    [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 receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

    1 Corinthians 12:3 KJV

    [3] Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.

    Colossians 3:17 KJV

    [17] And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

    Acts 2:37-38 KJV., what Israel(Jews) must do. Acts 10:44:48 KJV., the Holy Spirit(Ghost) given to the Gentiles(Greeks). In verse. 8, Peter commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord(Jesus Christ). Jews and Gentiles were baptized by water in the name of the Lord(Jesus Christ). Acts 15:5-9 KJV., question at issue(Gentiles being circumcised). In Verse 7 Peter is speaking Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe. In Acts 2 Peter used the keys(Jesus gave him the keys in Matthew 16:19 KJV.) first for the Jews, and in Acts 10 second, in the house of Cornelius for the Gentiles)(but Paul was distinctively(plainly) the apostle of the Gentiles, Gal. 2:7,8).

    Paul speaking( 1Corinthians 15:1-10). Not only being filled with the Holy Ghost, Saul/Paul was baptized with water in the name of the Lord(Jesus Christ).

    Saul's/Paul's Conversion: Acts 9:17-19 KJV; Paul's Defense before the multitude: recounts his conversion. Acts 22:11-16; Paul's defense before Agrippa. Acts 26:9-18. In verse. 18, that they may receive forgiveness of sins( Romans 3:23)

    1 Corinthians 3:5-8 KJV: 5. Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers whom ye believed, even as the Lord gave to every man? 6. I(Paul) have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase(Holy Ghost) 7. So then neither is he that planteth anything, neither he that watereth, but God that giveth the increase(Holy Ghost). 8. Now he that planteth and he that watereth are one: and every man shall receive his own reward according to his own labor.

    1 Timothy 1:1 KJV Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the commandment of God our Saviour, and Lord Jesus Christ, which is our hope. Think about this, what is the father's name on a Birth Certificate? What name is the child born into physically? See 1John5:1-20

    What is your explanation of the difference between Acts 2:38 and Matthew 28:19. Thank you.
  • Michael on Matthew 28
    Thanks for the commentary. very enlightening and helpful. Jesus rose from the grave on Sunday, the first day of the week. That was a great victory over death. Is that the reason why the seventh day sabbath was done away with? Can you give me some texts to support this view?
  • SkipVought - in Reply on Matthew 28:20
    Jesus said a number of things at the last meeting that His disciples heard. The Evangelists chose to record what The Holy Spirit lead each to do.

    See Mark 16:14-19.

    See Luke 24:44-51 and Acts 1:3-8. Seems that Doctor Luke might have run out of scroll writing his Gospel and continued his account at the beginning of The Acts of The Apostles. Acts1:9-11 continues with The Ascension.

    John recorded nothing related to this event.

    So I'd assume that all these things were said by Jesus and that they saw Jesus ascend to The Father. "But some doubted." Matt 28:17.
