Nr. 55: Baptism in water

Nr. 55:

Baptism in water

The Greek word Baptizo means, dive, dive in, dive down. It means full immersion.
The baptism was in fact a commandment that Jesus gave us in what we call the Great Commission.
Matthew 28:18-20 They were baptized in the name of Jesus Christ (see bottom of page related link for the issue).

The early Christians were concerned with one thing, to preach, baptize and to pray. Everything else they did, they did in the Lord Jesus Christ, no other names or titles.

We read here about baptism in Acts several places where baptism was always in the name of Jesus:

Ap.gj.2.38. Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, every one of you, that ye may receive forgiveness of sins, and ye shall receive the Holy Ghost.
Ap.gj.10. 48. So he ordered that they be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Then they asked him to stay with them a few days.
Ap.gj.19.5. After hearing this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord.

It was in this name baptism took place among the early Christians and God's word tells us to do and practice exactly like the first Christians.

Baptism is union with Jesus in his death - funeral - Resurrection

Rom. 6. 3 Or do not you know that all we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? 4 We were therefore buried with him when we were baptized with the baptism into death in order that we may live a new life, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the Father's great power. 5 Do we have grown together with Christ in a death that is similar to his, we shall also be one with him in a resurrection like his

Baptism in water is the gateway to the local church

Acts 2. 41 Those who accepted his message were baptized, and that day was around three thousand added to the church. 47 glorifying God, and everyone liked them. Every day, new people saved, and the Lord put them to the church.

Baptism is a good conscience covenant between us and God

1. Pet. 3. 20 There were those in Noah's time were disobedient, when God's patience waited while the ark was built. In it was a few people - a total of eight - were saved by water, 21 that in its foreshadowing, baptism now saves you. Baptism is no cleansing of the external impurity, but a good conscience, confession to God, the power of Jesus Christ's resurrection.

Baptism is a proclamation of the world, intellectual powers and all people.

1. Joh. b. 5 8 the Spirit and water and blood, and these three accord.

Baptism saves the world

Markus 16 16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Baptism in water by immersion for one have come to faith is to be clothed with Christ.

Gal. 3. 27 All those who are baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves in Christ.

Paul did not baptize but wanted the elders and those who served in the church were baptized church members.

1. Cor. 1. 14 I thank God that I did not baptize anyone of you than Crispus and Gaius, 15 so that no one should say that you were baptized in my name. 16 I have indeed also baptized Stephanas and his family. Otherwise I do not know whether I baptized anyone.

Many examples of water baptism in Gt.

Noah's Ark is like a foreshadowing. Noah was raised above the water, but we go under the water. With that in common that we are separated from the world.

1. Pet. 3. 20 There were those in Noah's time were disobedient, when God's patience waited while the ark was built. In it was a few people - a total of eight - were saved by water, 21 that in its foreshadowing, baptism now saves you. Baptism is no cleansing of the external impurity, but a good conscience, confession to God, the power of Jesus Christ's resurrection.

The children of Israel out of Egypt than the blood of the Lamb rescued them from the angel of death, but the water separated them from the Egyptians who are in a picture of the world.

1. Cor. 10. 2 and all were baptized into Moses in the cloud and in the sea,

Who can be baptized? Those who believe and confess that Jesus is the Son of God and their personal Savior and Lord.

Acts 8. 36 And as they drove along the road, they came to a place where there was water and the eunuch said, "Here is water. Is there anything to prevent me from being baptized? "37 Philip said," If you believe with all your heart, it can happen. "Then he said:" I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God. "38 So he sent cart stop, and both went down into the water, both Philip and the eunuch and Philip baptized him.

Faith is essential, only faith and only that.

Acts 18. 8 But the ruler of the synagogue Crispus came to faith in the Lord with all his house, and many of the Corinthians who heard him, came to faith and were baptized.

How do we baptize in Smyrna Oslo? We have first at least one conversation with the baptismal candidates. When it has become clear in this, so we recommend they have a testimony of their faith in Jesus. As we get ready for baptism. The person being baptized, christened when his own faith and BEKJENNESLE!

When rising baptismal candidates and the one who will baptize in the water. Then the baptismal candidates are asked for, and often also prophesied over.

If I baptize, I say the following: I baptize you in Jesus Christ, His death and burial. So do I perform baptism where baptismal candidates are baptized by full immersion in water. Then comes a trosproklamasjon "upright to walk together with Jesus, filled with his spirit and power!"

This was NOK as the apostles and early Christians baptized and we are building on their learning and practice, we want to live and practice all that the first Christians in Smyrna Oslo.

This is from my commentaries Ephesians 2 20 Ye are built upon the apostles and prophets the foundation, but the cornerstone is Christ Jesus himself.

1. Kor.3: 10 By the grace of God which is given me, I have laid the foundation as a wise master builder, and another builds on, but any look at how he builds!
For no one can lay a foundation other than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.
First, Paul tells the church is built on the apostles and prophets the foundation,-which is built on Jesus Christ.
No one can lay a new foundation on top of it is already there. Therefore, none have any revelation that is not consistent with God's word and an already found in the word of God and the ancient writings we have.
The Apostle John was caught up in the sky and saw the new Jerusalem.
Joh. Revelation 21: 16 And the city wall had twelve foundations, and on them the names of the twelve apostles of the Lamb.
Here John sees twelve foundation stones with twelve names inscribed.
The names belong to the Lamb's twelve apostles. It is among the first Christians they were and it was Paul who eventually brought the word of God and the apostle John in Revelation. All revelation since is to rediscover what God has already shown its holy men of God and women. We should not draw anything from or add to. This is from my commentaries Colossians Dispenser Letter 1 25 I have become a servant of the church by virtue of the management task God has given me with you: to complete the service of God's word,
With the background he had, not least with his deep knowledge of God's word and all the Jewish regulations, he was ideal for his great mission: to complete the service of God's word. Or as it says in the 1930 translation, ie to complete the word of God. There were many aspects of Paul's teaching \ preaching that was not obvious before he brought it to light. Among other church, the rapture of the church, gifts, service, gifts and many other truths.
What about prophets?
Matt.11: 13 For all the prophets and the law prophesied until John. . .
After John the Baptist came to an end both the law and the prophets.
But the strange thing is that Paul says God placed among other prophets in the churches. Lying Paul?
No, the explanation can be found in the word prophet, and that an Old Testament prophet, and one from the New Testament are two different concepts.
In the Hebrew language uses four words of the prophet, a seer (one who could see into the future) as a mouthpiece for God, one who preached morals of the people, and the last word of a false prophet.
In the New Testament is a word that means to expound divine will in an inspired way, and to comfort, encourage or exhort.
1 Corinthians 14:3: But he who prophesies speaks to people, to the edification, exhortation and consolation.
Those who call themselves prophets today, believe themselves to be the sort of prophet who can see into the future and get revelations directly from God.
Let me explain exactly what I mean, and what I DO NOT mean that there should be any doubt.
When the Holy Spirit guide you in your personal life, this is a prophecy in the New Testament context.
This has never ceased.
The New Testament prophetic gift to make light of what God ALREADY has revealed in his Word, the Bible is NOT the opposite. This has never ceased.
The Bible rules out, is the restoration of the Old Testament prophet-office.
Faith Movement Ministers claim that the Old Testament prophet's office is restored.
However, such a thing never mentions the Bible with a single word.
Faith Movement prophets see into the future, adding the course on the body of Christ, and have revealed new teachings that are contrary to Biblical teachings.
This practice is explicitly contradicted by the Word of God, and God has laid down total ban on such activity.
All the revelations and prophecies until the Day of Judgement has already been prophesied and revealed!
God has given us the revelations and the teachings we need!
Heb.1 :1-2 God, who in the past many times and many ways spake unto the fathers by the prophets, He has in these last days spoken unto us by his Son. . .
Here the Bible tells us again that the Old Testament prophet's era is over.
God is no longer with us through these prophets, but through Jesus.
More clearly it is not possible to say that!
Today's Old Testament prophets have appointed themselves. . . They are not appointed by God.
If someone goes beyond what the Bible talks about, then they are false prophets.

21 He holds the building together, so that in the Lord grows into a holy temple,

The building is the church, the redeemed of Jews and Gentiles. We grow together into a holy temple for the Lord. Catchment area of ​​the Holy Spirit is big in the individual's life. But unity and consensus in the Christian church does the same catchment area huge. It was the church of God Satan never wins.
Matt. 16. 18 And I tell you, you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 19 I will give you the keys of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. "20 And he commanded his disciples to strictly tell anyone that he was the Messiah.
5. Genesis 32 30 How could one man chase a thousand and two put ten thousand to flight, unless their Rock had sold them, unless the Lord had given them up?

22 and through him you also are built into a dwelling for God in the Spirit.

1. Cor. 15. 28 And when all is under him shall the Son also himself submit to God who put all things under him, and God may be all in all.
Here we read that God will fill all in all when we are home in heaven. But we are made partakers of the Spirit here and now. It's the same spirit we have now that we are fully to partake of when we get home. It's just like when we buy a house and write a contract. When one writes a contract and pay a portion of the purchase price, usually 10%. Then pay the rest when the house is finished. So it is with salvation. We are part of God the Father and Christ now, by their common spirit. So are we when we get home to share in the whole "package" in full. When God will fill all in all.

Wiki of baptism in Jesus' name!

"See, here is water! What prevents me
in baptism to receive "?
He then asked hist Gaza road
a man in the old days.
"For the very heart believes,"
was the Lord's servant, Philip, words,
"Is no more back."

"I believe that Christ came to earth
to honor the sin and pain;
I feel that through his words
have healed my poor heart ".
When they got down in the river water,
and Philip baptized the man,
that faith journey taught.

Yes, everyone who believes and is baptized
be saved and blessed be;
for him with the blood of Jesus purchased
and will of God to provide.
Anyone who believe, but faith first,
Our baptism is great, but the greatest faith.
The words we deeply inscribed.

We will lower the baptism arms
the siblings so dear,
we baptize them in Jesus' name
you, Our Father in honor.
Preserve them, O God, and be close to them
in today's fight, in life's journey,
and your last home they will bear.

Acts 8.26-40
