HOW SHOULD WATER BAPTISM BE DONE?

HOW SHOULD WATER BAPTISM BE DONE?

Jesus said, "surely I say to you,unless one is born of water and of the spirit, he can not enter the Kingdom of heaven." John 3:5.
To be born of water is to be baptised by water and to be born of spirit is to baptised by the Holy Spirit so that one is born again.So water baptism is a requirement for one to enter into the Kingdom of heaven.Mark 16:16 says, "He who believes and is baptised will be SAVED but he who does not believe will be CONDEMNED."

SPRINKLING ON THE HEAD OR IMMERSION IN WATER?
Romans 6:4 -5 says, "Therefore, we were buried with him through Baptism into death,so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father,even we should walk in the newness of life."
This means that baptism represents the death and resurrection of Christ.
We imitate his death by saying, just like he died and rose again,we have died to our old ways and have been resurrected to a new life.
Colossians 2:12 also says "buried with him in baptism,in which you were also raised with him through faith in the working of God who raised him from the dead.
Even when Philip baptised the Ethiopian,the bible says that they went into the water.He did not sprinkle the water on the head of the Ethiopian.Acts 8:38.
Baptism represents death and resurrection.When someone dies,the whole body is buried and not just sprinkling soil on the head of the dead person.
So baptism according to the bible should be through immersion of the whole body and then pulling the body out of water.Someone has to hold you backwards in imitation of being buried and then pull you out of the water in imitation of being resurrected. Infact,the word baptize comes from the greek work baptizo which means to immerse or to deep.

WHICH NAME SHOULD BE USED TO BAPTISE?
Jesus said in Matthew 28:18-19 that "Go ye therefore,and teach all nations,baptizing them in the NAME of the Father,and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. "
Just a question here.Is Father a name? or is son a name? If you want to enroll your child into School and you just write Father will they accept that? or if you write son instead of your child's name will they accept that? NO.
There are many Fathers and there are many sons,they would request for the name.Father or son is just a title just like Teacher,Doctor etc. What is the particular name of that Father or son? Jesus said in the NAME of the Father Son and Holy Spirit,which means they have one name.He didn't say in the NAMES.
Holy Spirit is also just a title.There is an evil Spirit called Satan,so what is the name of the Holy Spirit?
Spirits have names,the word spirit is just a title like human being.Human beings have particular names.
There are also other Spirits which are Holy called under the title 'Angel' but they have particular names like Gabriel or Michael.Just like there are other evil spirits called under the title 'demons' but they have particular names which they used when they were in heaven as Angels.
Since Father,Son and Holy Spirit are just titles,then what is this NAME of the Father,the Son and the Holy Spirit?
Jesus said in John 14:26 that, "But the Helper,the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in MY NAME will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all things I have said to you."
Jesus said the Holy Spirit would be sent in his name,the name Jesus.
And John 5:43 says,"I have come in my FATHER'S NAME and you have not received me yet if anyone comes in his OWN NAME,him you will receive." Jesus said he has come in his FATHER'S NAME.Which means that name of the Father is Jesus because this is Jesus speaking.
Which means this one name of the Father,the Son and Holy Spirit is the name Jesus Christ.
Philippians 2:10 says, "At the name of Jesus Christ,every knee should bow either in heaven,on the earth or under the earth.
So if Jesus Christ is not the name of the Father,son and Holy Spirit,then it means that the Father and the Holy Spirit will bow to Jesus because it says EVERY knee will bow even in heaven.
So if every knee bows to the name Jesus,they are simply bowing down to the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit.
In the old testament,God revealed himself to the Israelites under the name Jehovah but bow he reveals himself to us in the new testament under the name Jesus Christ.
That is why the bible says EVERYTHING you do,do it in the name of Jesus Christ.
In the bible not even one person was baptised by saying "I baptize you in the name of the Father,Son and Holy Spirit." These are just titles.That one name has to be used or else it is not a valid baptism.
Jesus told the disciples to baptize in the name of the Father,Son and Holy Spirit but why did they all baptize in the name of Jesus including Apostle Paul?
Because they got the Revelation.Peter knew that Jesus did not mean that statement literally just as he did not mean it literally when he said "unless you eat my flesh and drink my blood,you'll have no life in you."If Peter was walking in the flesh,he would have killed Jesus to eat his flesh and drink his blood for the sake of being saved.We need to walk in the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus told them,"I have many things to tell you but when the Holy Spirit comes,he will teach you all things."
That is why in Acts 2 on the day of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came,Peter received the revelation that that name is Jesus.The Holy Spirit which would teach all things taught him.
Acts 2:38 says,"Then Peter said to them, Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
It says that day three thousand people where added to them and baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.
Even in Acts 10:48 Cornelius and all those who believed were baptized in the name of Jesus Christ.It says,"And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus."
Acts 8:14-16 as well as many other verses show the same.
Infact,Paul even told those who has been baptized by John to be rebaptized in the name of Jesus Christ in Acts 19:1-5.
No one in the bible ever baptized using the Titles or was baptized using the titles but in the name Jesus Christ.
No wonder even Colossians 3:17-18 says what ever you do,do it in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Acts 4:12 even says there is no other name under heaven in which we can be saved but in the Name Jesus Christ.

SHOULD BABIES BE BAPTISED?
No one in the bible ever baptised babies.Jesus clearly said he who believes and is baptized will be saved.Babies have no ability to believe or not believe .Only those who believe should be baptized.To be baptized,you should be able to either believe the word or reject it.
Some say the whole household of Cornelius was baptized but the bible clearly says "The Holy Spirit fell upon THOSE WHO HEARD the word and they were baptised in the name of Jesus Christ.
Which means they heard and believed." Acts 10:44.
Babies don't have that ability.The instruction about babies and children is that we should let them come to Jesus and bring them up in the way if the Lord. Matthew 19:14 and Proverbs 22:6.
Water Baptism is when one has personally believed.That is even why judgement begins when one has known good and evil.If a child who has the ability to believe has believed,then good.But not a baby.

Some people die without having an opportunity to be baptised.For example,one may accept Jesus on the death bed and die.God knows thier circumstance.But one can not avoid it on purpose and get away with it.That is why James 4:17 says "To him who knows to do good but does not do it,to him it is sin".

If you were not baptised in the name of Jesus Christ,then you need to be rebaptized because God doesn't count that baptism valid.And yet water baptism is one of the basic requirements for Salvation.

"IF ANYONE COMES AND PREACHES ANOTHER GOSPEL APART FROM WHAT WE HAVE TAUGHT YOU,EVEN IF IT IS AN ANGEL FROM HEAVEN LET HIM BE CURSED."Galatians 1:8.

    I want to ask it is right to baptism only in the name OF JESUS

    @ Rique Chakman, you can’t baptize your self because baptism is an imitation of death and resurrection.Someone has to dip you in a backwards motion into the water to symbolise death of the old life and then pull you out to symbolize the resurrection or birth into a new life.How are you going to baptise yourself?

    Juan Marin.There are many parts to the body of Christ and they all work to edify each other.What if he has not yet received the revelation? And God wants him to learn from others? God doesn’t reveal all things to one person lest they become proud.The bible says we are one body with many parts.These many parts have different functions.Have you not seen the scriptures clearly laid out? The bible says to put on the whole armour of God with the Sword of the Spirit which is the word of God.Not man.I would personally believe the bible and not man and so should every other Christian.

    This is the last age, the age where all things done by the apostles MUST BE RESTORED! the apostles baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, but through the ages reformers came and baptized using tittles Father, Son and Holy Spirit, but now in this last age of Laodicea Jesus promised that Elijah will come and Restore evreything. restore the Faith that was once delievered by the apostles! Therefore we have to be baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of our sins, and receive the Gift of the Holy Ghost. Remember always, there is forgiveness when someone does not know, but after receive the Knowledge of Truth, THER IS NO FORGIVNESS! Blessed are you who get Thet Truth Now, WOE UNTO THEM WHO WILL REJECT IT.

    No one has been serving God in vain.Acts 10:44-48 shows that one can even receive the Holy Spirit baptism even before water baptism. Acts 8:14-16 shows that one can also receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit after Baptism.So its possible to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit before or after water Baptism.Its not complicated at all.If your Pastor won’t baptise you in the name of Jesus Christ,then Someone else should.If you don’t want to heed then fine.But remember that to whom much is given,much will be required.You heard the truth so you’ll have no excuse before God.The bible is your only standard.The sword of the word of God.

    Evangelist Joseph,if I tell you,write your father’s name down here,are you going to write the words “father’s name” or are you going to actually write down your father’s name despite me not mentioning it to you when telling you what to write.And why didn’t I mention it to you directly?Because I know that you already know what your father’s name is and I know if I tell you to write your father’s name you will know what am referring to . Jesus Christ knew His disciples already knew what the Father’s name was and what the Son’s name was and what the Holyspirit ‘ s name was and so He didn’t have to mention the actual name to the disciples.He knew they would understand. And they did.They knew the name is Jesus Christ. All the Apostles knew that name that Jesus meant no wonder they all baptised IN THE NAME of Jesus Christ. Acts 2:38

    Deutronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.” Jesus Christ is Jehovah coming in human form. It is the same Jehovah manifesting Himself in human flesh in order to perform the role of reconciliation. ” And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was MANIFEST IN THE FLESH, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” 1 Timothy 3:16 Jesus Christ is Jehovah manifesting Himself in a human body and living among us in order to reconcile us to Himself. 1 Corinthians 5:19 “For God was in Christ reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation.” And the same Jesus Christ is the one who comes to live in our hearts when we accept Him in the form of the Holyspirit. The same one God manifests Himself as Jesus Christ to die for us and reconcile us to Himself and the same God comes as the Holyspirit and lives inside us.When Jesus comes in our hearts He comes in form of the Holyspirit.All these are manifestations of the same One God.Jehovah,Jesus Christ and the Holyspirit is one God manifesting Himself in different ways and performing different functions.Like water in liquid form can freeze and become ice and that doesn’t make it different water,it’s the same water,and it can be heated and become vapour but it’s still the same water. And God isn’t limited by space or time,He can be at many places at the same time doing different things.Like He can be with different people at the same time in different parts of the world doing different things.And so that doesn’t mean because God was manifested in human form as Jesus then while Jesus was on earth heaven was empty of God.NO.At the same time God was in heaven and at the very same time He was on earth manifested in a human body (Jesus Christ ) and at the same time He was manifested as the Holyspirit coming upon Jesus Christ.The very same God. He can be manifest in different ways at the same time to perform different functions. For example God was in the burning bush speaking to Moses but at the same time He was still in Heaven. In the same way in the revelation Zipporah was given about Jesus begging for more time.Just like i stated that Jesus is Jehovah manifested in human flesh to reconcile us to Himself. So He was simply doing what He is supposed to do in that manifestation,performing the role of a medaitor.And again remember what I said that He is able to manifest Himself in different forms at the same time.Just like at the baptism of Jesus.He was on earth as Jesus and at the same time Spoke from heaven as the Father and at the same time came down as the Holyspirit,One God,different manifestations at the same time. The different manifestations of God do not make Him 3 different people.He is One God revealing Himself in different ways.No wonder when the Apostles were told to use the name of the Father Son and Holyspirit,they used the NAME of Jesus Christ . Because Father Son and Holyspirit are not names but titles referring to 3 different manifestations of One God just like deutronomy which I have quoted above states the Lord your God is One.

    Apart from the biblical evidence I have shared above.Let me add this . Even in Angelica ‘ s 1st testimony Jesus refered to Himself as Jehovah. ” At that moment I hear the Lord’s voice, a beautiful voice with thunder and love, “Fear not, Daughter, for I AM JEHOVAH , Your God, and I have come here to show you what I have promised you. Arise, for I Am JEHOVAH , who holds you by your right hand and tells you, Fear not, I will help you.” Suddenly, I arose. END OF QUOTE And even several times Jesus would be speaking to me and He would even use the name Jehovah but the one i would be seeing is Jesus. The same God is Father Son and Holyspirit . No wonder the Apostles baptised that way because they knew.And we are built on the foundation of the Apostles.Ephesians 2:20.We are to teach what the Apostles taught.And what they taught on this is found in Acts 2:38

    Chindu Just like I stated,in all the 3 forms,He is performing 3 different role.He is performing the role of the Father,the role of the Son and the role of the Holyspirit. So when he cries Father why have you forsaken me He is in a state where He’s performing the role of the Son who has been sent . Remember the roles in all the manifestations are different but they do not make Him a different God. For example in Galatians 4:6 it says ” Because you are his sons, God sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” The Holyspirit is the One who comes to live in our hearts but He’s being refered to as the Spirit of the Son in the verse above. The roles are different in all the manifestations.So when God is manifest as the Father He sends His son who Himself is actually God Himself being manifest in a human body 1 Timothy 3:16. So for all your questions my answer is this,the most important thing to understand is that in all the different manifestations of God,the roles are all different.So as the Father He sends His Son whom 1 Timothy 3:16 says is actually God Himself manifested in a human body,and since He was manifested as the Son He was performing the role of the Son and even crying to the Father.And at the same time the bible says in colossians 1:15 “The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation.” The verse tells us that Jesus is the image of the invisible God.Its the same God coming in a body that can be seen and living among us. 2 :9 “For in him (Christ)dwelleth all the fulness of the Godhead bodily.” God in a human body is Jesus Christ,the same God not 2 different personalities. But like I said the most important thing to know is that in each manifestation the roles are different no wonder you read of Jesus crying to the Father,why?Because He’s performing the role of the Son.And coming to us as the Holyspirit and telling us about Jesus because that manifestation too has a different role but it’s all One God.The same One who was there in the beginning just taking different forms and performing different functions.Its the different functions that confuse people to think He’s 3.Hes one and has come in 3 different manifestations performing different functions.The difference Chindu is that trinitarians believe in 3 Gods in One while the bible teaches One God in 3 manifestations. And because they believe in 3 Gods in One,they believe the Father,Son and Holyspirit are 3 Gods and they believe Jesus Christ is only the name of one of the 3 while the bible teaches only one God coming in 3 manifestations and the name of that One God which has been giv for the salvation of mankind is Jesus Christ.And Father Son Holyspirit are titles of the same One God.One God in 3 manifestations not 3 Gods in One. ” In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. “John 1:1 in the above verse it says the word was WITH God then says the word WAS God. It’s just like the different roles in manifestations that I ve been talking about,the word was with God but the same word was God. The same God manifests Himself as Jesus and IS WITH the Father and at the same time IS the Father. It’s just different manifestations and performing different roles but He is One LORD.The Alpha and Omega. Jesus said in Rev 22:13″ I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.” Jesus Christ is all of it.He is Jehovah,He is the Son,He is the Holyspirit. The Father was manifest in a visible body and lives in us as the Holyspirit.The Apostles understood this and that’s why when told to use the name of the Father Son and Holyspirit they used the name of Jesus Christ.

    March 15, 2016 at 9:27 am

    According to your first comment you seemed to think they are separate.Thats why I explained all that.For example you wondered why if it’s the same God why He would cry to the Father.

    John’s Baptism was before the death of Jesus.Baptism represents that just as Jesus died and rose again,we have died to our sins and risen to a new life.That is why Paul asked those who had baptized by John to be rebaptized in the name of Jesus Christ.In Acts 19:1-5

    Brethren seek the holy spirit to unravelled this mystery. ordinary man can’t comprehend the revelation of the word of God except by the spirit of God. Jesus said I have many to tell you but you can’t bear now. When the Holy spirit come which is the spirit of truth, who I will send in my name shall teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all things Joh 16 12 -15, Joh 14 25-26. Seek the to be filled with the Holy spirit and it will be easier to understand. because a carnal man cannot understand spirituality. Rom 8 vs 4-5 . sisters you are loaded.

    DESPITE JESUS BEING THE EXPRESS IMAGE OF GOD DOES NOT MEAN THE FATHER STOPS TO EXIST HIS LIFE SHOWS US WHO THE FATHER IS. WHY COULDNT HE JUST SAY “IN MY NAME. IF THIS WAS NOT A REVELATION THEN CONFIRM IT WITH THE LORD OTHERWISE U MAY MISS THE TRUE MEANING AND PROCEDURE OF WATER BAPTISM

    I am sorry to be out of the topic but please do allow me to ask is it the use of anointing oil biblical and is there anything right or wrong with the use water and oil? Miss Zipporah and anybody else can please answer me on this one.

    March 17, 2016 at 5:38 am

    Sis Joan Martinez,when a person dies how are they buried? Forwards or backwards? And how was Jesus laid in the tomb.On his back or on his face?Baptism represents being buried when you are deeped into the water and represents resurrection when you are pulled out of the water.Every baptism done in correctly and in titles instead of a name should redone.God bless you.
