In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. George Orwell.


Baptism:a term derived from Greek ‘baptizo’: ‘immersing’.

Baptising is responding to the call of God to Repent and wash away our sins. It is not something you just do, or can be forced to do; but it is something that happens to you as you surrender: repent, then walk into that water to be submerged by one in the name of Jesus Christ. Only this way you are Born Again. You first believe that which you read, then you feel repentance, then you feel compelled to baptise – and you do it by your own will.
Baptism is also referred to as Baptism of repentance: repenting, then baptising – because one must repent before one can ‘be baptised’. Surrendering to God through this ritual is called ‘Baptism’.Metaphorically, repenting is the contract you must read and accept and baptism is the signature you must draw to bind the agreement between you and God. After this no more sins are permitted, would this be possible; only transgressions can be forgiven. For now, you have received ‘knowledge of the truth’: you are baptised, and through prayer, you have received the Holy Ghost. Now the truth is manifest in you!  You are now reborn of Incorruptible seed and thus cannot revert to sin.

But if you believe that you ‘can’ then read what Apostle Paul reveals to you.

HEB 10: 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
HEB 10: 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.
JO2 1: 1 The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;
JO2 1: 2 For the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us forever.
( note: with ‘the truth’ is meant ‘faith, repentance, baptism and the conclusion: reception of the Holy Ghost, ordaining your body a Temple).

ACT 5: 14 And believers were the more added to the Lord, multitudes both of men and women.)

When you get baptised, have it done in the name of Jesus Christ

If this is undue then find me one verse where a miracle is performed in the name of Father Son and Holy Ghost! All miracles in the Gospel have been performed in the name of Jesus Christ.

Reading the Gospel, Jesus tells us repeatedly to request thing in ‘his’ name.

MAT 28: 19 – Falsified.
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
( this was added to the gospel later. Just a falsification by an arrogant brute. )
Acts: 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptised 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.
If we search the Gospel for the line: ‘ in my name ‘ we read that Jesus always has taught the Apostles to request and do things in his name. And thus the proof of the truth is revealed to us! We only need to read! Or read the preachers of the truth, like I am: for they will give us biblical proof of their preachings.

We distinguish five kinds of baptism in the Gospel:

1) The baptism of John the Baptist: it was from God. MAT 21: 25
2) The baptism of the first believers, by John the Baptist, through submergence in water, but prior to the baptism in the name of Jesus Christ, and solely through repenting and confessing their sins: MAT 3: 5-6 .
3) The baptism of The Apostles with the Holy Ghost, through flames of fire. ACTS: 2:3
4) The baptism of believers, through submergence in water and in the name of Jesus Christ. ACTS: 2:38
5) The Baptism of Apostle Saul ( Paul ) solely with the Holy Ghost, through laying on of hands. Acts: 9: 17-18
Baptism as described in ACTS: 2:38 is the only baptism available to us, from that time forward unto this day and forever.

Atonement:
Jesus’ death on the cross is no atonement for sin! Atonement for sin is ‘individual repentance’ completed with baptism and the reception of the Holy Ghost. Imagine that Jesus’ death would literally be atonement for sin! Why then would we need repentance and baptism, while our sins were already be forgiven by Jesus’ death on the cross? This quote is a METAPHOR. His death on the cross completed the process during which he gave us the means to obtain salvation:- faith, repentance, baptism, but was and is no atonement for any sins! Do not be fooled by smooth talking fake preachers who by no means endeavor to win you for the kingdom of heaven, but only for their own gain: money and power.

For absolute clarity:
Repentance: turn from your sins (everything Jesus specifies as ‘sin’ and then embrace the teachings of Jesus). This is repenting.

Baptise: now you have repented, God shall wash away your sins as you are submerged into the water, This is baptizing.
After we have baptised, we must ask God for the Holy Ghost, in the name of Christ: for then we shall surely receive it.

11: 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

Baptism is also called a sacrifice: because, when we baptizing, we sacrifice our liberty to undertake any of the actions prohibited by Jesus Christ, having washed away all sins accounted to us for past transgressions.
Do not believe that there are two baptisms for us: we are to baptise with water, in order to become Holy. Only the Apostles were baptised with fire: and nobody else. Only Jesus received the Holy Ghost descending from heaven like a dove: and nobody else.

Those that are truly called, are granted wisdom and understanding by God, so they understand. They would build their house upon a Rock. MAT 7: 21

Baptism is the first of the two sacraments given to us by Christ.
We must read the Gospel, understand it, accept it, repent truly in heart then, through our own will, walk into the Baptism and baptise into the church of Christ. Baptism without repentance is no Baptism but merely a quick dip – and many are thus baptised. These are the cold, or at best lukewarm, with a ‘Christian Tag’: not Christians.

JOH 3: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
JOH 3: 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
JOH 3: 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
JOH 3: 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
JOH 3: 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

MAT 18: 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
JOH 3: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
JOH 3: 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
PE1 1: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.

Matt.18:3-4 – And said, Verily I (Jesus) say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (4) Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven (humble your self through repentance and baptism).

Once we have accepted the Gospel and Christ and have surrendered our selves to him, we must baptise.

Baptism is also to know as ‘To be Born Again‘; to be a new person as the old one is dead and the new one is born.  A believer one whom builds his house upon a rock, and consider this seriously. However, this new person will be born of incorruptible seed and shall not be capable of sinning again.

Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptised 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. (note that they’ve thus received it, but that we must pray for the Holy Ghost, so that he may bestow it upon us, says Christ).

Then Jesus came from Galilee to John to be baptised by him in the Jordan River.
3:14 But John tried to prevent him, saying, I need to be baptised by you, and yet you come to me? So Jesus replied to him, Let it happen now, for it is right for us to fulfill all righteousness. Then John yielded to him. After Jesus was baptised, just as he was coming up out of the water, the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and coming on him. And a voice from heaven said, This is my one dear Son; in him I take great delight.
Note: we don’t read of multiple baptisms, but one, there is only one ‘true’ baptism.
If you had a fake one, where your parents took you to the baptism, then it does not count as being baptised, for you need to repent, then baptise – all through your own will.

So be not fooled by the false preachers and so-called followers/Christians who tell you that you need not baptise. Jesus was baptised, and so who on earth are you? Through faith you are saved; and not faith in your self, your own wisdom, but by faith in what Jesus teaches you.

After the baptism you are a Holy person, a Christian: nothing else makes one Holy or Christian.

Metaphors used:
MAT 18: 3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
JOH 3: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
JOH 3: 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.
PE1 1: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.
Here we read again that ‘Grace’ ‘Word of God’ ‘Incorruptible Seed’ are all used as Metaphor to denote Christ and his gift to us: baptism for the remission of sin.

Metaphors used:
JOH 3: 3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
JOH 3: 4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?
JOH 3: 5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
JOH 3: 6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
JOH 3: 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.

Born again of water and the spirit means: you being born again, not in the flesh but in the spirit. So, not of the flesh, but of the spirit. It does not refer to the Holy Ghost, which we receive through praying for it, for born again we are through water: as Jesus said. But, as we read, we receive the Holy Ghost through prayer after our baptism. Some may believe that receiving the Holy Ghost after our baptism is another form of ‘Born Again’, referring to born again of the spirit: but this is not so. The gift of the Holy Ghost is no more than what it’s referred to be in the book of Acts: a gift from Christ to the Born Again Christian: the baptised person.

ARE YOU BAPTISED?

a) – If anyone has taken you to a place and baptised you there or had you baptised by another, you are not baptised.
Why? Because you are called to Repent en then baptise into the Church of Christ. As a little child, you could not even repent for your sins, for you did not understand the matter and so you were not baptised.

b) – If you did not understand the Gospel or did not even read it before you baptised, or if you did not understand ‘Repentance’ and you then baptised (let us so call it) you did the act of going in to the water but you were not baptised for you did not understand: believe, repent, baptise. God can forgive you, for you were a fool or you were misled by others.
If now you understand and you can actually ‘feel’ repentance, then you are ready to baptise.

c) – If you were baptised by any person who did not put you under the water ( baptise) and then lifted you out of the water again, you are not baptised either; for you are called to ‘Repent’ and ‘baptise’ in the name of Jesus Christ.

In any of the above cases you can baptise again and, this time, as you really understand what you are doing, you shall be baptised.

WHO CAN BAPTISE

Any person, believer or not, can baptise another, for it is your motivation to answer Jesus that will make you ‘receive the baptism’ (as I define it). Were you ever baptised by a filth who was not at all baptised, but did you have no knowledge thereof, well, you are then still baptised, for you walked in to the baptism by your own choice and, knowing God through his dealings in the Bible, God will not blame you for it, for you did not have the knowledge that the one baptizing you was a rogue. 

HOW TO BAPTISE

One can be baptised in any water, anywhere and at any time. This because it is only written to baptise in water.
One must be ‘baptised in the name of Jesus Christ’, as it is written and has been done in the days of Jesus : but some using the quote ‘In the name of the father, and the son, and the holy ghost’ this has been added to the Gospel and does not appear in the Gospels first published, so it may look okay, but is a risky quote to use and so you better avoid it. It is always better to hold on to that which is taught in the Bible and to follow it exactly – remember that the lukewarm have no chance with God. True believers investigate everything and find the truth in the Gospel.
The quote: the son is like the father, where Jesus explains that he is like God, can be compared to the authority of a Deputy Judge compared to that of a judge: to us, both have equal power, yet one is the greater power.

BAPTISING LITTLE CHILDREN

Children should not be baptised as when a child was brought to Jesus he did not baptise them, as it would surely contradict his doctrine, but he blessed them: see Matt.18:3-4. Children are as we should become, after the Baptism – so why baptise them? The Holy among us should Bless them, as Jesus did.

Many Christians pointed at this, so then the churches invented the name ‘Christening’ to fool those who are not at all called by God but by man, to bind as many fools as soon as possible to their church. Paedobaptism is not from Christ.
Be ye children of your God and not the children on men!

Hebrews 10:12
But when this man (Jesus) had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God.
( That sacrifice is ‘Baptism’.)

Hebrews 10:26
If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge of the truth (Baptism after repentance), no sacrifice for sins is left…

Forgiveness of Sin After Baptism

The only forgiveness after baptism is the forgiveness for transgressions, which normally are accidental. These include sudden waves of unjustifiable hatred (hate for evil is justifiable as we must hate evil to love good), thoughtless deceit, accidental lies told to the harm of others, accidental, thoughtless theft (which in fact are not thefts) etc. For transgressions, God tells us how to obtain his forgiveness. Sacrifice to God is a contrite heart! We read this clearly and it is perfect! He only can see if you regret your deed, for then your heart is contrite and only he can see it!

. 51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.

But for sinning after baptism (would this be possible) there is no forgiveness but sure condemnation, just like logic tells us. But the teachings of the pseudo-Christians, who in Paul’s days were very active, forced Paul to make the following statement:

HEB 10: 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
HEB 10: 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

JO2 1: 1 The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;
JO2 1: 2 For the truth’s sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us forever.

Note: ‘Knowledge of the Truth’ does not denote you having read the Gospel, reading and now knowing the truth, but it refers to you having repented and then baptised ín the name of’ ‘Jesus Christ’: and now, being Holy, all the truth is revealed to you. For now your body and spirit are pure, a spiritual temple, and you are ready to receive the Holy Ghost, which shall surely come into you, would you but ask Jesus to sent it to you: this is the meaning of ‘Knowledge of the Truth’. First, you read about the truth, but the true substance thereof was not revealed to you until you repented and you were baptised in the name of Jesus Christ. Now, and only now, you have received ‘knowledge of the truth’.
But, for the stubborn: if this is not the meaning of ‘Knowledge of the Truth’ what is the meaning then?

So remember: knowledge of the truth we gain through going through the process: faith, repentance, baptism: after that we experience the new ‘us’ and the reception of the holy ghost. Did we doubt before this, then now we have experienced the truth. Repentance is a sacrifice, baptism is the closing of the deal with God, but these two are one: for without the one the other has no meaning and no effect.

Note: before we have baptised, during our repentance, we should start to ask for the Holy Ghost. We pray for this and, after we baptise, we must then receive it.

LUK 11: 13 If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children: how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask
him?

ACT 2: 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptised 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.
ACT 10: 45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift
of the Holy Ghost.

Mark 1:15 (Jesus) And saying, The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: repent ye, and believe the gospel.
Speaking in tongues (all languages) after baptism is a gift of God only bestowed upon the Apostles:

so that they could preach the Gospel to all the nations. Read the full explanation on this page.

BAPTISM QUESTIONS

1) Do you believe that Jesus is The Christ, meaning the son of God?
2) Have you repented from sinning, now embracing the doctrine of Jesus Christ as written in the Gospel?
3) Are you aware of the fact that after this ritual you shall be born again of incorruptible seed and thus be holy and incapable of sinning again?
4) Do you understand that, would you hereafter revert to sinning, you have ‘NOT’ received the baptism, because your faith and repentance were insufficient to God?

PE1 1: 23 Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.

If all questions are answered with ‘YES’ you may baptise the person, otherwise, instead of to deceive them, give them sound advice, assuring them they may return when they believe to be ready.

If the subject is not ready, also notify them of the following:
Are you aware of the fact that, could you sin again after your baptism, you would be condemned, because remission of sins, through the only means by which this is possible: Faith, Repentance and Baptism, is only available once?

Quote Apostle Paul: Paul saw no way out but to answer those who believe that baptism is not a prerequisite for salvation, or that after their ‘assumed baptism’ they are holy and can sin at will.

HEB 10: 26 For if we sin wilfully after that we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remaineth no more sacrifice for sins,
HEB 10: 27 But a certain fearful looking for of judgment and fiery indignation, which shall devour the adversaries.

The Baptism of Israel Narvaez (The Cross and The Switchblade)

How to pray, according to Jesus Christ.

...And The Gates Of Hell Shall Not Prevail Against It
Through the ages, Catholics and other Nicolaitans defied the above quotation by Jesus, 
oppressing and murdering many, deceiving and misleading many more.
But they have not and shall not prevail against
'His Church'.
