12-30-2012- DEATH WHERE IS YOUR STING-DEATH  VICTORY


1 CORINTHIANS 15: 51-57 = 

(51) BEHOLD, I SHOW YOU A MYSTERY; WE SHALL NOT ALL SLEEP, (DIE), BUT WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED.

(52) IN A MOMENT, IN THE TWINKLING OF AN EYE, AT THE LAST TRUMP: FOR THE TRUMPET SHALL SOUND AND THE DEAD SHALL BE RAISED INCORRUPTIBLE, AND WE SHALL ALL BE CHANGED.

(53) FOR THIS CORRUPTIBLE MUST PUT ON IN-CORRUPTION AND THIS MORTAL MUST PUT ON IMMORALITY.

(54) SO, WHEN THIS CORRUPTIBLE SHALL HAVE PUT ON IN-CORRUPTION AND THIS MORTAL, SHALL HAVE PUT ON IMMORTALITY, THEN SHALL BE BROUGHT TO PASS THIS SAYING THAT IS WRITTEN,  DEATH IS SWALLOWED UP IN VICTORY?

(55) O DEATH WHERE IS YOUR STING? O GRAVE WHERE IS YOUR VICTORY? 

(56) THE STING OF DEATH IS SIN; AND THE STRENGTH OF SIN, IS THE LAW.

(57) BUT THANKS BE TO GOD, WHICH GIVES US THE VICTORY, THROUGH OUR LORD, JESUS, THE CHRIST.


"REMARKS"

ONE OF MY MANY FAVORITE SCRIPTURES, ARE THESE.

WHEN WE ARE COVERED BY THE BLOOD OF JESUS, YAH'SHUA, WE ARE SAVED FROM SIN AND DEATH, IF, WE ACCEPT THIS PRECIOUS GIFT FROM GOD THE FATHER, YAH'WEH.

HAVE YOU BOWED YOUR KNEE TO GOD, YAH'WEH, AND ASKED FORGIVENESS FOR YOUR CONFESSED SINS AND HAVE YOU RECEIVED JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AS YOUR SAVIOR AND LORD AND MASTER, AND GOD, AND HAVE YOU ASKED HIM INTO YOUR HEART.

IF YOU HAVE IN SINCERITY, AND YOU HAVE MADE A TRUE COMMITMENT AND YOU HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF JESUS, YAH'SHUA, THEN YOU HAVE COMPLETED WHAT JESUS, YAH'SHUA, CALLS THE FULFILLMENT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS.

MATTHEW 3: 13-15 =

(13) THEN COMES JESUS FROM GALILEE TO JORDAN TO JOHN, TO BE BAPTIZED OF HIM.

(14) BUT JOHN FORBAD HIM SAYING, I HAVE NEED TO BE BAPTIZED OF YOU AND COME YOU TO ME?

(15) AND JESUS ANSWERING AND SAID TO HIM, ALLOW IT TO BE SO NOW:  FOR THUS IT BECOMES US TO FULFIL ALL RIGHTEOUSNESS. THEN HE ALLOWED HIM.


HERE WE SEE THE EXAMPLE OF HOW WE FOLLOW OUR MASTER, JESUS, YAH'SHUA. THE COMPLETION OF BAPTISM, AFTER OUR CONFESSION AND REPENTANCE, WE COMPLETE OUR PART OF OUR VOW TO GOD, YAH'WEH, FOR OUR SALVATION AND SAVED FROM THE WRATH OF GOD, YAH'WEH, WHICH IS SOON TO COME UPON ALL THE WORLD.

ACTS 2: 38 = THEN PETER SAID TO THEM, REPENT AND BE BAPTIZED EVERYONE OF YOU IN THE NAME OF JESUS, THE CHRIST, FOR THE REMISSION AND FORGIVENESS OF SINS, AND RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT.


HERE IS THE PERFECT SCRIPTURE WAY FOR BAPTISM TO OCCUR, DURING THE CHURCH AGE, THAT TRULY BECAME THE CHURCH, AFTER THE EMPOWERING POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, IN ACTS CHAPTER 2: 1-4.

THE BAPTISM IN MATTHEW LEAVES A LOT TO BE DESIRED IN THAT, IT DOESN'T GIVE THE NAMES UNDER WHICH THE BAPTISM OF THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY SPIRIT, WERE CONDUCTED.

THE NAMES THAT SHOULD ALWAYS BE USED WHEN USING THE MATTHEW BAPTISM, IN MATTHEW 28: 19: GO YOU THEREFORE AND TEACH ALL NATIONS, BAPTIZING THEM IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, THE SON, AND THE HOLY SPIRIT.

 THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED IN THIS BAPTISM, MAY NOT TRULY BE BAPTIZED, SINCE THE NAMES OF THE FATHER AND THE SON WERE NOT USED WHEN YOU WERE PROBABLY BAPTIZED, AND THIS IS ALL BEFORE THERE WAS A SPIRIT FILLED CHURCH, THE PRE CHURCH, WAS NO CHURCH AT ALL, BECAUSE IT WAS NOT INFUSED WITH THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, AS IN ACTS 2.

SO THE PROPER WAY THE OLD BAPTISM SHOULD HAVE BEE SPOKEN WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE THIS:

I BAPTIZE YOU IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, YAH'WEH, AND IN THE NAME OF THE SON, JESUS, YAH'SHUA, AND IN THE HOLY SPIRIT.

THIS IS HOW IT SHOULD HAVE ALWAYS BEEN DONE, BUT WASN'T, TO MY KNOWLEDGE. I WASN'T, AND TO MY KNOWLEDGE, HAD ANYONE I WAS PRESENT TO SEE OR HEAR, BAPTIZED THIS WAY.

OF COURSE WE COULD ASSUME WHEN THE BAPTISM TOOK PLACE, THAT THOUGH THE NAMES OF THE FATHER AND THE SON WERE NOT MENTIONED, THAT THEY WERE ASSUMED TO HAVE BEEN KNOWN, WHICH SEEMS A STRETCH FOR ME.

I RECOMMEND YOU DO THE ACTS 2: 38 BAPTISM, SINCE IT FALLS UNDER THE TRUE CHURCH ENDORSEMENT OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, OR AT LEAST, HAVE IT REDONE IN THE PROPER NAME SEQUENCE I GAVE YOU EARLIER, IN THE BAPTISM ORDINANCE OF JESUS, YAH'SHUA, IN MATTHEW 28.

IT IS ALWAYS JOY IN THE LORD, THAT HE GIVES UE POWER OVER SIN, THROUGH HIS BLOOD SHED ON CALVARY, FOR IT IS BY THIS SHEDDING OF HIS BLOOD, WE ARE FORGIVEN OF OUR SINS.
