    Hi,

    Col 2.12

    having been buried with him in baptism, in which you were raised up with him through faith in the working of God, who raised him from the dead.

    Yes Nick, that baptism is water baptism

    AND those who liveth (being baptized with God’s HolySpirit)
    and believeth in me (YA-shu-a) shall never die (John 11:26)

    Hi Ed,

    Jn 8.51

    Truly, truly I say to you, if anyone keeps my word he will never see death.

     

    The Word is of the Spirit.

     

    To accept and treasure the living word is to take in the Spirit of eternal life.

    Even though he dies he lives.

    Hi Ed,

    Jn 8.51

    Truly, truly I say to you, if anyone keeps my word he will never see death.

    See Nick,

    You found a corroborating verse.

    “If anyone”

    Hi Ed,

    Lk 9.1 and parallel verses in Lk9 and Mt 16 continue the teaching that real life is in the Spirit.

    Abraham Isaac and Jacob too are alive to God.

    And real death is not physical but is the second death after the Judgement.

    Hi Nick,

    They are not different things –
    Keeping the word is obeying the word.

    “Keep the commandments”

    Hi,

    Acts 8.16f

    As they were going along the road they came to some water; and the Eunuch said

    ’Look !Water!

    What prevents me from being baptised?’

    and Philip said

    ’If you believe with all your heart, you may’

    And he answered and said

    ’I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God’

    And he ordered the chariot to stop and they both went down into the water,Philip as well as the Eunuch, and he baptised him.

     

    Philip had been with the Eunuch on his chariot teaching him about the scriptures and preaching Jesus to him.

    It is obvious that the importance of baptism in the name of Jesus had been discussed as it was the Eunuch that requested it.

    Hi,

    1Cor 2.13

    Has Christ been divided?

    Paul was not crucified for you, was he?

    Or were you baptised in the name of Paul?

    Rom6.3

    Or do you not know that all of us who have been baptised into Christ Jesus have been baptised into his death.

    Therefore we have been buried with him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have become united with him in the likeness to his death, certainly we shall also be in the likeness to his resurrection..

     

    We must be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ.

    There is no other name under heaven by which we can be saved.

     

    No trinity, no church, nothing else is relevant.

    Hi Gene,

    I became a “Christian” at the tender age of 12 years old.
    I was baptized with God’s Holy Spirit at the age of 15, and
    water-baptized at the age of 57 at Nick Hassan’s prompting.

    Hi,

    Acts 16.27f

    When the jailer awoke and saw the prison doors opened, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself, supposing that the prisoners had escaped. But Paul cried out with a loud voice, saying

    ’Do not harm yourself, for we are all here!’

    and he called for lights and rushed in, and trembling with fear he fell down before Paul and Silas, and after he brought them out , he said

    ’Sirs, what must I do to be saved?’

    They said

    ’Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved, you and your household’

    And they spoke the word of the Lord to him together with all who were in his house. And he took them that very hour of the night and washed their wounds, and immediately he was baptised, he and all his household. And he brought them into his house and set food before them, and rejoiced greatly, having believed in God with his whole household.

     

    Believe in God, Believe also in me.

    Baptism in the name of Jesus Christ follows repentance and belief.

    Acts 4.12

    ‘And there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved.’

    Not in the name of a trinity.
