    Hi Gene,

    There is no record of the apostles being baptised.

    Perhaps they were or perhaps they were washed by the Word.

     

    But do not mock or diminish the ways of God.

    Hi,

    Man is a vessel designed to house the Spirit.

    Instead, since Adam’s rebellion and idolatry of the god of this world,  he has housed sin in the flesh.

     

    He must be forgiven and made clean and baptism is a plea for that to happen.

    Hi Ed,

    blessings to you.

    But the traditional stuff does not fit with the bible.

    Most have nothing to celebrate because the judge of men has come and they have yet to find the way of salvation.

    You can’t be saved if you live in the desert, unless you live near a spring. Neither is any man saved before John. LOL.

    Hi Nick,

    “he that believeth in me, though he were dead (symbolizing water baptized), yet shall he live:
    And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die (symbolizing no water baptism).
    {John 11:25-26)

    God bless

    Hi T8,

    Would you mock the plan of God?

    Would you imagine stumbling blocks before those called and chosen?

    Was God not capable of anticipating and providing for the baptismal needs of the Eunuch or the jailer?

     

    Think again.

    Hi T8,

    Before the law sin was not ascribed.

    When the Law was given the Jewish people could be made clean by observance of the Law. Jesus is living proof.

    God, Who knows all hearts, also made exceptions for those gentiles who lived according to the precepts of the Law as Rom 2 makes plain.

     

    The Law and the prophets were in force until the time of John.Lk 16.16

    Those who refused the baptism of John rejected the purpose of God for themselves. Lk 7.29-30

    Hi,

    Acts 2.41

    So then those who had received his word were baptised, and that day there were about added three thousand souls.

    Hi,

    Gal.3.27

    For all of you who were baptised into Christ were clothed with Christ.

    Matt 22.11

    But when the king came in to look over the wedding guests, he saw a man who was not dressed in wedding clothes…

    Hi,

    Rev19.8

    It was given to her to clothe herself in fine linen, bright and clean; for the fine linen is the righteous acts of the saints.

     

    So we must produce a profit on the investment God has made in us.

    Fruit.

    Nick….can it read , “for all of you who were baptized into the anointing were colthed with the anointing” . The word Christ may not always mean the man Jesus. Notice the word Jesus does not appear in the text. Many get the “man” Jesus mixed up with the word anointing spirit, as if the “man” jesus himself was the anointing spirit he was anointed with. The common denominator is the anointing spirit of GOD. WE are spritually connected with JESUS, HAVING THE SAME SPIRIT IN US AS IN HIM, EVEN GOD.

    Peace and love to you and yours. ……..gene

    Hi,

    Lk 6.46

    Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord’ and do not do what I say?

    Nick…..as you quoted, 1 Cor 12:13, “for by one spirit we are baptized into one body”. Whether we be Jew’s or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free, and have all been made to drink into one spirit.

    Peace and love to you and yours. …….gene

    Hi,

    Acts 22.15

    Now why do you delay?

    Get up and be baptised, and wash away your sins, calling on his name.

    I go away, and you will seek me, and will die in your sins; where I am going , you cannot come.
