    Jesus told his disciples in Matthew 28:19,”Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name (SINGULAR name) OF the Father, and OF the Son, and OF the Holy Ghost.” Father is a title and not a name, Son is a title and not a name, Holy is an adjective, and Ghost is a noun. Without exception, Jesus disciples baptized in Jesus name, meaning they said Jesus name at baptism, or in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, which is Acts 2:38, Acts 8:14-18, Acts 8:38, Acts 9:18, Acts 10:47-48, Acts 16:15, Acts 16:33, Acts 18:7-8, Acts 19:3-5, and Acts 22:16. At no time did Jesus disciples ever use any combination of the titles Father, Son, or Holy Ghost when they baptized anyone, or use any combination of those words in one sentence regarding any other topic. Just before Jesus ascended into heaven, Luke 24:45 says,”Then he opened their understanding….” Having had their understanding opened, His disciples knew exactly what Jesus meant in Matthew 28:19, and they baptized in His name. Paul said in Galatians 1:2 that he was not taught by any man but was taught by Jesus himself. In Galatians 3:27 he said,”For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.”

    Some say getting baptized “Is only an outward sign of an inner change”, and therefore is not necessary, but Jesus said in Mark 16:16,”He that believes and BAPTIZED shall be saved, he that believes not shall be damned.” Jesus gave an example of what damned means in Matthew 13:49-50,”So shall it be at the end of the world, the angels shall come forth and sever the wicked from among the just, 50 And shall cast them into the furnace of fire, there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.” He also said in Mark 9:43-44,”And if your hand offend thee, cut it off, it is better for you to enter into life maimed, than having two hands to go into hell, into the fire that is never quenched. 44 Where their worm dies not and the fire is not quenched.” Jesus told Peter in Matthew 16:19,”And I will give unto you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatsoever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatsoever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” That means that whatever Peter said to do is set in stone and NOT negotiable.

    Peter was asked by the people what they needed to do to be SAVED in Acts 2:37, he told the people in Acts 2:38-39, which is the first time the gospel was preached after Jesus had ascended into heaven,”Repent and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to those that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.” That means that there is no time limit to that promise, it is just as valid today as it was back then. Note that Peter is talking about the INITIAL remission of sins and not the confessing of sins for forgiveness later mentioned in 1 John 1:9, which is 18 Chapters after the book of Acts. Peter later said 1 Peter 3:21,”The like figure where unto even BAPTISM DOES ALSO NOW SAVE US….”

    Some say the thief on the cross next to Jesus was saved when he told Jesus he believed in him and Jesus told him he would be with him that day in paradise, and the thief was not baptized. Previous to that time Jesus had not given the commandment to be baptized until after he later rose from the dead and just before he ascended into heaven, which is Matthew 28:19 and Mark 16:16 – therefore the thief, or anyone else at that time did not know about water baptism and therefore could not have done it.

    Some say that a person is saved and they receive the Holy Ghost/Holy Spirit the moment they believe in Jesus. The following scriptures prove that is not true. In Acts 9:1-9 a light from heaven shinned around Paul, Paul fell to the earth and asked the Lord what he should do, Jesus told him to go into Damascus where he was struck blind for three days and couldn’t eat or drink – which at that point he was definitely a believer, then Ananias baptized him in Jesus name and LAID HANDS ON HIM TO RECEIVE THE HOLY GHOST. Acts 8:14-17,”Now when the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, (BELIEVERS at that point) they sent unto them Peter and John, 15 Who when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost, 16 For as yet he was fallen on none of them, only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then they LAID THEIR HANDS ON THEM, and they received the Holy Ghost.” If it was true that those believers had received the Holy Ghost the moment they were believers, Peter and John would not have traveled to Samaria, then prayed for each one of them, then laid hands on each one of them to receive the Holy Ghost/Holy Spirit. Acts 19:1-7,”And it came to pass, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus, finding certain disciples. 2 He said unto them, Have you received the Holy Ghost since you BELIEVED? And they said unto him, we have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost. 3 And he said unto them, unto what then were you baptized? And they said, unto John’s baptism. 4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people that they should believe on Him who should come after him, that is on Christ Jesus. 5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 And when Paul LAID HIS HANDS ON THEM, the Holy Ghost came on them, and they SPAKE WITH TONGUES and prophesied. 7 And all the men were about 12.” The scriptures above prove that just because a person is a believer does not mean they automatically receive the Holy Ghost/Holy Spirit, and because they are a believer does not mean they are automatically saved. Note that Paul had to make a major effort to take the 12 to water that was deep enough to baptize them in Jesus name, then lay hands on each

    one, and pray over each one to receive the Holy Ghost/Holy Spirit. If it was not absolutely necessary to be baptized in Jesus name and lay hands on them to receive the Holy Spirit, Paul would not have done all that if it was not needed. Acts 10:1-2 describes Cornelius as a devout man, one that feared God with all his house, which gave much alms to the people, and prayed to God always (A BELIEVER.) In verse 3 and 4 an angel of the Lord told him to seek out Peter and he will tell him what he should do. Acts 10:44-47 states that as Peter was speaking to Cornelius and those with him, the Holy Ghost fell on them and they spake with tongues and magnified God, then Peter IMMEDIATELY commanded them to be baptized in Jesus name. As believers, if it were true that Cornelius and those with him automatically had the Holy Ghost/Holy Spirit – He would not have fallen on them as Peter was speaking, and if they were automatically saved as believers, Peter would not have baptized them in Jesus name. Acts 16:23-28 describes Paul and Silas being cast into prison for preaching and casting out demons in Jesus name, an earthquake happened and all the doors were opened and their feet were released from the stocks. In verse 29, being a BELIEVER at that point, the Jailer fell down at their feet and asked them what he needed to do to be SAVED. In verse 33 Paul and Silas baptized him and all of his household. It was so important that they did it in the MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.

    Some say Jesus said in John 3:16 that God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish but have everlasting life, that Jesus didn’t say anything about being baptized at that time and therefore they don’t need to be baptized to be saved. But Jesus wan’t finished speaking yet. Just before He ascended into heaven He gave the COMMANDMENT to be baptized in his name in Matthew 28:19 and Mark 16:16. Jesus said in John 14:15,”If you love me, keep my COMMANDMENTS.” In John 14:21 he said,”He that has my COMMANDMENTS AND KEEPS THEM, it is he that loves me….”

    Some say there is little mention of water baptism after the book of Acts which means baptism was not relevant after that. All the scriptures in Acts is a record of what was done by Jesus disciples when the Churches were FIRST formed – there was no reason to keep telling them about water baptism in Jesus name.

    Some say,”Peter baptized those that he was speaking to in Acts 2:38 in Jesus name because they consented to Jesus being killed.” Note that Jesus was crucified in Jerusalem, but Acts 8:12 took place in Samaria, Acts 16:14 took place at Philippi, Acts 10:48 took place at Ceasaria, Acts 18:8 took place at Corinth, Paul RE-BAPTIZES those who were not baptized in Jesus name at Ephesus in Acts 19:1-5, and those that believed Paul and were baptized into Christ at Galatia in Galatians 3:27.

    Some say,”I was baptized by the words Jesus said in Matthew 28:19 and that is good enough for me.” That is said because they don’t understand what Jesus is saying to do in that scripture. Jesus disciples knew exactly what he meant, and did it every time, which without exception was in Jesus name.

    Some say,”Romans 10:9 says if we confess our sins and shall believe in our heart that God raised him from the dead, we shall be saved.” And “Ephesians 2:8-9 says that by grace we are saved through faith and it is a gift of God, and not by works.” Note that Paul wrote both Romans and Ephesians and it was Paul that was baptized by Ananias in Jesus name back in Acts 9:18, Paul baptized Lydia and all of her household in Jesus name in Acts 16:15, Paul baptized the Jailer and all of his household in Jesus name in Acts 16:33, Paul baptized Justus in Acts 18:7, Paul baptized Crispus and many CORINTHIANS (Paul later wrote 1st and 2nd Corinthians) in Jesus name in Acts 18:8, Paul baptized the 12 believers in Acts 19:5 – note that Acts 19:1 says Paul was at EPHESUS when he baptized those 12 believers, and then later wrote the book of Ephesians. In other words Paul was writing to Churches that he and the other disciples had already baptized in Jesus name and laid hands on them to receive the Holy Ghost. Paul also said in Galatians 1:8-9,”But though we or an angel from heaven preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accused. Paul was so adamant about that, that he repeated himself in verse 9, “As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that you have received, let him be accursed.” Paul gave an example of what accursed means in 1 Thessalonians 1:8-9,”In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. 9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction, from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.” The gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ is repentance, getting baptized in His name and get baptized with the Holy Ghost. Jesus said to his disciples in Luke 10:16,”He that hears you hears me, he that rejects you rejects me, and he that rejects me, rejects my Father in heaven.”

    Jesus also said in John 10:27,”My Sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”
