HOW IMPORTANT IS YOUR BAPTISM?

Have you ever observed someone being baptized and heard the pastor make a statement that baptism is not important and that you are not saved by baptism that it is only a symbol of publicly receiving Christ as your Savior? I have and I always wondered why they felt that they had to tell everyone this every time they baptized someone as if they might do something wrong if they didn’t. I have thought on this subject many times and have always wondered about it!

The bible teaches that there are certain important major Church doctrines that we ought to obey. In the book of Hebrews God very thoroughly explains to us what the “new covenant” is all about. The church of God is no longer under the old covenant after the order of the Levitical Priesthood as given to Israel by Moses. We are now under the Priesthood after the order of Melchizedek! Our high priest is Jesus  Christ who is from the tribe of Judah which was never even mentioned by Moses that there would be a priesthood other than the Levitical Priesthood. Now Christ teaches us in the bible that there are new covenant doctrines that we need to learn and follow. Hebrews 6: 1-2 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ, let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, of the DOCTRINE OF BAPTISMS, of laying on of hands, of resurrection of the dead, and of eternal judgment.

I believe that Jesus Christ is the author of the Holy Bible and that it is the infallible truth of God! When He makes it a point to tell us about the major doctrine of baptism in context with the resurrection of the dead we need to pay attention and understand what Jesus is saying! When God sent His Holy Spirit down to the earth to inhabit the hundred and twenty believers on the day of Pentecost  (Acts 2: 1-4 When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit… Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire) the Apostles went out and started preaching to the multitude of people in Jerusalem and the very first thing Peter told them in Acts 2:38 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. WHEN YOU ARE BAPTIZED YOU RECEIVE THE HOLY SPIRIT! Don’t you think that makes baptism rather important to a Christian? But always remember that with God all things are possible! If He chooses to give you His Holy Spirit some other way He can but you still need to be baptized. (Acts 10:44-48 While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those who heard the word. And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of the Holy Spirit had been poured out on the Gentiles also. For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify God. Then Peter answered, “Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be baptized who have received the Holy Spirit just as we have?” And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord).

I encourage anyone who has not done so, to get on your knees and ask God what baptism is all about and He will answer and lead you into a life so wonderful and will infuse you with a new power that you never knew existed. Jesus changes everything! SEEK HIM NOW!

IS IT POSSIBLE TO STOP SINNING?

Once in a senior Sunday school class, a man who was a long term member made the statement that he had the rapture and he didn’t need anything else.

Sadly, there are many Christians who feel that “once saved always saved” excuses them from any other duties as a Christian. That is not so!

 They lack understanding of the new covenant that Jesus Christ preached about in the “Sermon on the Mount.” Under the old law you literally had to commit an act of sin to be guilty, but under the new covenant Christ makes it very clear that if a person harbors evil in their heart they are guilty of sinning. Everything we do in life should be spiritual, not of the flesh. But how can we do this? Through Jesus who lives in us! Jesus made the supreme sacrifice once and for all so our sins are forgiven and remains our advocate forever.

Hebrews 10:10 We have been sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all.

12 But this Man, after He had offered one sacrifice for sins forever, sat down at the right hand of God.

14 For by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified.

15 But the Holy Spirit also witnesses to us; for after He had said before,

16 This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, says the LORD: I will put My laws into their hearts, and in their minds I will write them.

17  Their sins and their lawless deeds I will remember no more.

Matthew 5:21 You have heard that it was said to those of old, You shall not murder; and whoever murders will be liable to judgment.

22 But I say to you that everyone who is angry with his brother will be liable to judgment; whoever insults his brother will be liable to the council; and whoever says, you fool, will be liable to the hell of fire.

27 You have heard that it was said, you shall not commit adultery.

28 But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.

31 It was also said, whoever divorces his wife, let him give her a certificate of divorce.

32 But I say to you that everyone who divorces his wife, except on the ground of sexual immorality, makes her commit adultery, and whoever marries a divorced woman commits adultery.

33 Again you have heard that it was said to those of old, you shall not swear falsely, but shall perform to the Lord what you have sworn.

34 But I say to you, do not take an oath at all, either by heaven, for it is the throne of God,

35 or by the earth, for it is his footstool, or by Jerusalem, for it is the city of the great King.

36 And do not take an oath by your head, for you cannot make one hair white or black.

37 Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil.

38 You have heard that it was said, an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.

39 But I say to you, do not resist the one who is evil. But if anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to him the other also.

43 You have heard that it was said, you shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.

44 But I say to you, Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,

4 so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.

46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same?

47 And if you greet only your brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same?

48 You therefore must be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect.

How is it possible to be perfect as God our Father is perfect?

1John 3: 9 No one born of God makes a practice of sinning, for God’s seed abides in him, and he cannot keep on sinning because he has been born of God.

The whole book of 1 John is a further expansion of the spiritual laws of Christ.

If you do not have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, then now is your time, this is why you are reading this now! Jesus is knocking on your door! Open to Him now! Receive Him into your life! God bless you! Amen!

CHRIST CAN HEAL YOUR UNREASONABLE ANXIETY

One hundred years ago America barely had lights and radios so world and national news was hard to come by. The news papers were the main source of news and it was usually months old. People, in general, were concerned mostly about local news. There just was not a whole lot to boggle the mind in those days. But now, the average person gets news about all kinds of things worldwide, nationwide, and locally and the average mind has a great deal of knowledge to sift through.

Anxiety in the West: Is it on the rise?

Published Wednesday 5 September 2018

By Tim Newman

Fact checked by Jasmin Collier

 

— Today, “anxiety disorders are the most common mental illness in the U.S.,” affecting around 40 million adults — almost 1 in 5 people. —

—They also noted that millennials were the most anxious generation. In 2018, the same poll was repeated. Anxiety was shown to have risen again by another 5 percent. Millennials were revealed to still be the most anxious generation. —

______________________________________________________________

The average person is spending more time thinking through all the things their minds encounter everyday than ever in history and subject to more concern and anxiety. They have to plan more and make more decisions suffering the responsibility for it all.

What is the best answer to this problem? Could there be a solution? After all, this problem is a social and cultural shock!

 Something has to change! God says in the Bible: 1 Corinthians 7:32  I want you to be free from anxieties.

God said and the Apostle Paul wrote: Philippians 4:6 do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.

God changes everything!

 Luke 15:10 So I can guarantee that God’s angels are happy about one person who turns to God and changes the way he thinks and acts.”

Only God can change the mind of men! When God looks into the mind and sees surrender, He immediately calls the person to Christ.

John 6:44 No one can come to Me unless the Father who sent Me draws him; and I will raise him up at the last day.

Do you want change in your life? Surrender to Jesus Christ and pray for Him to come into your life and you will: Be anxious for nothing.— Philippians 4:6

Acts 9:34 Jesus the Christ heals you! Amen!

SO YOU BELIEVE YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN

There have been surveys taken asking people if they were Christians. There were many who said no but of the many who said yes there were discrepancies. For example, there were some who felt they were Christians simply because they believed in God. So, is the issue about who believes in God?

 80% of Americans Believe in God. Pew Found Out What They Mean.

In the shifting spiritual landscape of the United States, Christians too can no longer assume that their friends and neighbors believe in the God of the Bible, if they believe in God at all.

Though God regularly gets evoked in prayer, platitudes, and phrases like “God bless America” and “in God we trust,” Americans—even within Christianity—have different conceptions of who God is and how he operates.

A Pew survey released today found that how people view God—and how they believe God interacts with them—shifts by religious affiliation, gender, and political party.

Even in an era where more of the nation doesn’t ascribe to a higher power at all (10%) or believes in some sort of higher power or spiritual force (33%), a slim majority of Americans (56%) still believe in God “as described in the Bible,” according to the Pew report.

According to Pew’s report, only 32 % of white Democrats believe in God as described in the Bible as compared to 72% of white republicans who believe in God as described in the Bible. That is very eye opening assuming the accuracy of the pole!

Understand that there is no mention of the Holy Spirit and without the Spirit nothing is understood or known.

John 14:26  But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you.

God’s pole is more accurate, believe God! Man’s pole talks about God but leaves out Christ when talking about Christians. They don’t understand the spiritual and that Jesus Christ is God.

Colossians 3:1 If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

 Jesus and the Holy Spirit actually dwell in Christians waiting the time they will also be joined to the Father! Therefore, two members of the Trinity dwell in the incorruptible inner man.

Romans 8:9 But you are not in the flesh but in the Spirit, if indeed the Spirit of God dwells in you.10 And if Christ is in you, the body is dead because of sin.

Jesus is everything to a Christian! We must surrender our lives to Him and follow Him!

John 15: He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing.

If you are not a Christian and want to be then confess that you are a sinner and that Jesus is the Son of God and surrender your life to Him right now in prayer and you will be saved!

Dear heavenly Father, Please reach into the hearts of those who will read this blog and convict them into believing in Jesus as their Savior, in Jesus name, amen!

THE EFFECTS OF HEAVEN AND EARTH

Colossians 3:1 Seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.

2 Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.

5 Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.

8 Put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth.

Do not let these things rule you because of political, social, or cultural leanings put them to death as it says in verse 5.

If you want all these things to be better, be better than the things you want to be better. Now we reach the crux of the matter! You cannot do it alone. Man is not able! But with God all things are possible.

Matthew 19:26 But Jesus looked at them and said to them, “With men this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”

Humble yourself before God and confess that you are a sinner and He will look down and see and hear.

1 John 1:9 If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Confess your sins now and your life will change. All the heaviness of discouragement, sadness, and helplessness will be a thing of the past. You will feel something you never felt before. FREEDOM! Receive total freedom from the shackles of sin and the constant pull of Satan the Devil who wants you to stay in this worlds system that he controls. 

JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONLY ANSWER! ACCEPT HIM NOW!

The blessings of the love of God are upon you, in Jesus name, amen!
