Repent and be baptised every one of you in the name of Jesus for the remission you sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost (Acts 2;38).
Go and make disciples of all nations baptising them in the name… (Matthew 28;19).
He that beliveth and is baptised shall be saved (Mark 16;16). Baptism is a burial of the old nature. baptism allows us to follow Jesus who himself was baptised. Jesus said that those who follow him but deny themselves and take up their cross. A true disciple follows Jesus in baptism. Baptism is more than a public confession, baptism is a burial of the old nature, the carnal man, the sin nature. buried with him in baptism (Romans 6;4 Col 2;12 ) when we arse forth form the watery grave we share with him in his resurrection. therefore a man is said to be a new man. one who has died and has a resurrection into eternal life.
Tis then is the pattern Jesus gave us. except a man be born of water and spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom heaven (John 3;5). the baptism on water and spirit thus provides us with entrance Into God’s kingdom.
Sins are omitted at baptism, repent and be baptised for the remission sins. this is great news for us. baptism is then the act where Jesus himself baptises us. it is as we take on his name at baptism that we are saved. as scripture tells us arise and be baptised calling on the name of the lord washing away thy sins. (Acts 22;16).
The tunic said what does hinder me to be baptised (Acts 8;36). Today is the day of salvation. call upon the lord while he is near. Arise and be baptised today.
