Baptism: What the Bible Teaches: Tony Twist, David Young, Bobby Harrington.

Bobby Harrington GCM The Holy Spirit is the SEED of God’s life in our hearts (1 John 3:9)

This For Sale Book follows the normal pattern of listing a passage and then both RETRANSLATE it or Further expound it.  This is the Private Interpretation which is outlawed by Peter because it would REPUDIATE God's Spirit informing Jesus to "make the prophecies" more certain.

Therefore, since I have only a few more years, I will take a shortcut and just. list the Renew.Org or "A New Day" "revelation" and then adding what God put into the Mouth of Jesus (the meaning of "spirit") and He delivered face to face and mouth to mouth.  I hope to put the randomness of the book in some kind of Scriptural order by passage.


New Notes added Monday, July 15, 2019

David Young co-authored the Renew.org distortion on Baptism.  He must agree with the Christian Church HEADS seeking whose church property they might devour.

I am trying to untangle the personal opinions by just listing their Scripture Passages. I will have that ready in short order.  Each of three writers commented on various topics but David Young is responsible for all of it.  Their Calvinism obligates them to use the Bible but they REWRITE to fit their repudiation of thhe Word:

"We believe God SOVEREIGNLY SAVES as he sees fit,
BUT we are bound by Scripture to uphold THIS teaching about
       surrendering
to Jesus in faith through repentance, confession, and baptism."

Renew.Org: The WATER of baptism, or the ACT of baptism,  has no merit in itself;
       
it is simply the God-ordained method  of appealing BY FAITH
        to the saving work of Jesus Christ.

Baptism, Peter teaches,
is a PLEDGE of a good conscience
        based upon the resurrection of Jesus Christ
.

The Spirit had Peter say that BAPTISM SAVES because we ASK for A good conscience which is A holy spirit (ours) because only the Crucified Jesus could PLEDGE or STIPULATE and rest on HIS pledge. 

Which is "He that believeth (complies) AND is baptized SHALL be saved."
The Believeth Nots or Apistos means that they are "treacherous" and refuse to come to the LIGHT to be examined.

Many times the SAVED BY FAITH or Jesus Alone is the Mantra. Nothing else has merit: Baptism does NOT save us--refuting Jesus and Peter--Baptism is just the way to DEMONSTRATE our FAITH. And because we are saved by FAITH, Peter's saying BAPTISM DOES NOT SAVE US:

Contrary to the Greek: Baptism Saves because it is how we APPEAL to or ASK Jesus to add us to His Church.
In the remote sense where "answer" includes a PLEDGE, it is JESUS who pledged to save us by baptism and NOT the sinners PLEDGE or guarantee to be good.

There is nothing that a humanoid has to give in PLEDGE.  Baptism SAVES because God PLEDGED  to save believers and DROWN those who did not OBEY and got into the ARK (Coffin).  The WATER SAVED those who obeyed because the mockers were DROWNED.

The Red Sea was another prophetic Types.

Here is how God SOVEREIGNLY SAVES and He has defined WHO IS FIT.

Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world,
        and preach the GOSPEL to every creature. [Not just the Calvinists]
Mark 16:16 He that BELIEVETH (Pistis includes to Comply)
        AND is baptized SHALL BE saved;
        but he that believeth not [Apistos marks treachery of anyone calling Jesus a liar]
        shall be DAMNED.

John 3:14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,
        even so must the Son of man be lifted up:

Renew.Org: John 3:16: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only son, that whoever believes in him SHALL not perish but have eternal life.

John affirming Jesus: 
John 3:15 That whosoever believeth in him SHOULD not perish, but have eternal life.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world,
        that he gave his only begotten Son,
        that whosoever believeth in him
SHOULD not perish,
        but have everlasting life.

Contrary to those Jesus marks as BLASPHEMERS and John identified as ANTICHRISTS. Jesus was not declared the Son of God, Lord or Christ until 30 years after He was born in the FLESH.  After His baptism God's SPIRIT SPOKE and confessed Jesus who had confessed the Father. While Jesus was sinless, He was not SANCTIFIED or ordained to speak for God until He was SANCTIFIED to serve as Priest.

The Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites [rhetoricians, singers, instrument players] claimed that Jesus made Himself God and Jesus responded.

John 10:36 Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified,  [given A holy spirit]
        and sent into the world,
        Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?

Only after Jesus was REGENERATED and Glorified:

Rom. 14:9 For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived,
        THAT he might be Lord both of the dead and living.

Rev. 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness,
        and the first begotten of the dead, and the prince of the kings of the earth.
        Unto him that loved us,
        and washed [baptized] us FROM OUR sins in his own blood,
Heb. 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart
        in full assurance of faith,
        having our hearts sprinkled FROM an evil CONSCIENCE,
        and our bodies washed [baptized] with pure [purifying] water.

THIS IS A LONG WAY TO TELL THOSE SELLING SNAKE OIL THAT WE DON'T HAVE A GOOD CONSCIENCE UNTIL WE HAVE BEEN BAPTIZED WHERE JESUS SPRINKLES US FROM AN EVIL CONSCIENCE.

A FAITHFUL PERSON COMPLIES WITH WHATEVER GOD COMMANDS. Faith, by definition and literature means that you must believe and COMPLY by being baptize SO THAT your sins be forgiven.
John 3:17 For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world;
        but that the world through him might be saved.
John 3:18 He that BELIEVETH on him is NOT condemned:
        but he that BELIEVETH NOT
[Apistos marks treachery of anyone calling Jesus a liar]      
        is condemned already,
        because he hath not believed
        in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

The Believeth Nots demand that Jesus was GOD IN THE FLESH.
They cannot confess that "Jesus is the Christ the SON of the Living God."
AntiChrists confess and publish that God was in the FLESH.


John 3:19 And this is the condemnation,
        that LIGHT is come into the world,  [Kosmos, Ecumenical, kingdom of the Devil]
        and men loved darkness rather than
LIGHT,
        because their deeds were evil.
These same false teachers will INFILTRATE and DIVERT (heresy) YOUR Congregation for their OWN fun and PROFIT.  The School of Christ becomes their THEIR THEATER for rhetoric, singing, playing instruments and TITHES AND OFFERINGS.  This is best facilitated if you you cause people to HATE those who believe that the historic TEXT has now become obsolete.  And so, this document uses a lot of self-write to MAKE VOID the Scriptures.  Why else would people sell and you buy songs and sermons claiming to ENHANCE the Words of the Spirit of God?

The SPIRIT of Christ meant that God put His WORDS into the MOUTH of men like Isaiah which is parallel to Mark 16 in Isaiah 1.  Here is why Jesus called the Scribes and Pharisees A RACE OF VIPERS.
Isaiah 8

Isa 8:19
And when they shall say unto you,
        Seek unto them that have familiar SPIRITS, [Witch of Endor, empty wineskins or Nebel]
        and unto WIZZARDS that PEEP, and that MUTTER:
                should not a people seek unto their God?
                for the living to the dead

David Young and Renew.Org translation:
1 Peter 3:21-22: This water [Noah’s] symbolizes baptism that now saves you also—not the removal of dirt from the body but the pledge of a clear conscience toward God. It saves you by the resurrection of Jesus Christ, who has gone into heaven and is at God’s right hand—with angels, authorities and powers in submission to him.

REPUDIATES JESUS COMMAND AND PETER'S FAITHFULNESS.

1Pet. 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust,
        that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh,
        but quickened by the [HIS] Spirit:

1Pet. 3:19 By which also HE went and preached unto the SPIRITS in prison;
1Pet. 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient,
        when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah,
        while the ark was a preparing,
        wherein few, that is, eight souls were SAVED BY WATER

WATER IS GOD'S CHOICE FOR SEPARATING THE BELIEVERS FROM THE UNBELIEVERS OR BETRAYERS.
Baptism is the ANTITYPE which WE can imitate and BE SAVED.  Answer is not OUR pledge or a SYMBOL but the imitation of that symbol.  UNLESS you would like to build your own ark or be crucified which is ANTI GRACE.

1Pet. 3:21 The like Anti-Tupon whereunto
        even baptism doth also now save us
        (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh,  [Jewish Baptisms]
        but the answer of a good conscience toward God,)
        by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:

1Pet. 3:22 Who is gone into heaven,
        and is on the right hand of God;
        angels and authorities and powers
        being made subject unto him

BUT NOT DAVID YOUNG AND RENEW.ORG.

The Holy Spirit OF God says that BAPTISM SAVES. Period, hard stop.  God putting His Words into the Mouth of Isaiah as the Spirit concerning Christ defined Baptism in the same way as Mark. WE have nothing to pledge and so we  OBEY that form of Doctrine where God through Christ PLEDGED that we would be Reborn or Regenerated with A holy spirit or A good conscience.

ARK is defined as a COFFIN. It was covered outside and inside with blood-red bitumen and God ordained that WATER would save them while it judged those who "believeth not."

These twisters of Scripture say that Baptism was a SYMBOL.
Tupos is a PATTERN intended to be IMITATED.  The ark was the PATTERN
The Anti- (instead of) Tupos


1Pet. 3:21 The like Anti-Tupon whereunto
        even baptism doth also now save us
        (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh,  [Jewish Baptisms]

        by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:


Answer is translated Request or Baptism Saves because we. REQUEST that  Jesus give us A holy spirit or A good conscience.  In the remote case where PLEDGE is used, it is JESUS who made the Pledge.  We stipulate that we now have A Good Conscience or A holy spirit.  In 2 Corinthians 3 we have to TURN, be Converted or Baptized before we can READ or HEAR the Word:

He was immersed, and Into the kingdom of God he came. Do as Cornelius did, and then you will think of it in another light — then you would not for a world be unregenerate. To have the PLEDGE, the PROMISE, and SEAL of God
        of the remission of all your sins, to be adopted into his family,
        and to receive the Spirit OF A SON OF GOD. [never a person]

When people claim that they have a Spirit guiding them beyond the sacred pages, believe them. Spiritus personified in the Latin MARKED Apollo, Apollyon or Abaddon.  He was one of the stars the Jews brought with them out of Egypt.  He is the leader of the Locusts or his musical worship team.  The Babylon mother of harlots (Rev 17) has a priesthood of literal or physically emascuclated priests who were "lusted after fruits."  They are called Sorceers and  may already being CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.  CONSUMED BY THE SPIRIT OF THEIR MOUTHS.

In ALL instances where the Spirit falls, rests, baptizes etal IT (the Breath of God) produces WORDS.

GOD'S SPIRIT NEVER TOLD ANYONE TO GO BEYOND THE WEEKLY SYNAGOGUE OR CHURCH OF CHRIST {THE ROCK) IN THE WILDERNESS NOR TO TELLY YOU TO TITHE AND OFFER.

The free Bible Teaches:

Matt. 13:23 But he that received SEED into the good ground
        is he that heareth the WORD, and understandeth it;
        which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth,
        some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.
Luke 8:11 Now the parable is this: The SEED is the WORD of God.


1Pet. 1:23 Being born again, not of corruptible
SEED,
        but of incorruptible, by the
WORD of God,
        which liveth and abideth for ever.

1John 3:8 He that committeth sin is of the devil;
        for the devil sinneth from the beginning.
        For this purpose the Son of God was manifested,
        that he might destroy the works of the devil.
1John 3:9 Whosoever is born of God doth not commit sin;
        for his
SEED remaineth in him: and he cannot sin, because he is born of God.
1John 3:10 In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil:
        whosoever doeth not righteousness is NOT of God,
        neither he that loveth not his brother.

JESUS KNEW THAT ALL PAGANS WOULD BE OFFENDED IF DEPRIVED OF A PERSONAL MEDIATOR BY VISIBLE-AUDIBLE WOMEN WHO SERVED AS ORACLES.

John 6:61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it,
        he said unto them, Doth this offend you?
John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the SON OF MAN  ascend up where he was before?
John 6:63 It is the SPIRIT that quickeneth;
        the flesh profiteth nothing:
        the
WORDS that I speak unto you,
        they are
SPIRIT, and they are life.
John 6:64 But there are some of you that believe not.
        For Jesus knew from the beginning who they were that believed not,
        and who should betray him.

BAPTISM IS THE TIME AND PLACE WHERE GOD SEPARATES THE GOOD SEED FROM THE TRAITORS
Mark 16:15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.
Mark 16:16 He that believeth AND is baptized shall be saved;
David Young and renew.org (claiming a latter day pattern) says that FAITH saves and Baptism demonstrates our faith. As a way to dismiss Mark 16:16 they quote:
       
Then, Peter describes baptism as the point at which a person WAS saved
        BECAUSE it was at that time that they
pledged a good conscience to God (1 Pet. 3:21; Acts 22:16).     


When PLEDGE is used, it is Christ's PLEDGE when He connected baptism AND salvation.

Alexander Campbell Millennial Harbinger Abridge 575 And Christian System Regeneration p 240

The Holy Spirit Through Peter who had preached that Baptism was FOR the Remission of sins:
Noah and family were SAVED BY WATER because God shut them up in a coffin (not a boat) so that the water was the instrument for doing the work.

1Pet. 3:21  The like figure whereunto even BAPTISM DOTH ALSO NOW SAVE US. Period.

FIGURE is imitating a TYPE or pattern intended to be imitated.

Baptism SAVES because we REQUEST A good conscience or A holy spirit because of Christ's Promise.


(not the putting away of the filth of the flesh,
 but the
REQUEST FOR a good conscience toward God,)
        by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:  [Because that is what Jesus Promised]
but he that believeth not shall be damned.
Apistos or Believeth Not marks one as a BETRAYER: they do NOT believe what Jesus promised.

John 3:18 He that believeth on him is not condemned:
        but he that believeth not is condemned already,
        because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.

Luke 7:30 But the Pharisees and lawyers
        rejected the counsel of God against themselves,
        being not baptized of him.

Matt. 23:14 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye devour widows’ houses, and for a pretence make long prayer: therefore ye shall receive the greater damnation.
AFTER JESUS PROVED THAT SPIRIT AND LIFE ARE IN HIS WORD EVEN AFTER HE LEFT.

John 6:65 And he said, Therefore said I unto you,
        that no man can come unto me,
        except it were given unto him of my Father.

John 6:45 It is written in the prophets,
        And they shall be all taught of God.
        Every man therefore that hath heard,
        and hath learned of the Father, cometh unto me.
IF YOU ARE NOT ONE OF THE DAMNED

Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his WORD were baptized:
        and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.
John 6:66 From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.
John 6:67 Then said Jesus unto the twelve, Will ye also go away?
John 6:68 Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go?
        thou hast the WORDS of eternal life.

David Young REFUTES inspiration: Baptism: What the Bible Really Teaches Baptism is the ceremony;
        God’s forgiveness and our faith in Jesus
        are the reason for the ceremony. 

Please carefully note our words: biblical baptism was given to us by God to express our faith in Jesus Christ and his gospel.
        But the saving power, according to the Bible, is Jesus himself.
        Our faith relies on Jesus alone (and his saving power).
        Baptism is EFFECTIVE because it is God’s method of EXPRESSING our FAITH.
        It will be helpful to review the following passages on this point:

Refutes: Jesus said that he that BELIEVETH (complieth) AND is baptized shall be saved.
Faith is what ENABLES a person so that BAPTISM SAVES because it is Christ's pattern for REQUESTING that He vive us A good conscience which is A holy spirit (ours)

David Young: What is baptismal regeneration?

It is the view that the act of baptism saves a person. In theological jargon, this means that baptism is the instrumental cause of regeneration

He means that the Olden Church of Christ He has usurped TAUGHT that dipping in water saved.  You have to cause people to HATE their own church family before you can creep in and take which is the meaning of HERESY.

In fact, no one teaches that baptism is the CAUSE or POWER of regeneration: baptism saves because it is a REQUEST for A good conscience or A holy spirit (OURS}

David Young does not know that Baptism SAVES because it ASKS of A good conscience, consciousness or a CO-PERCEPTION of the WORD.

Alexander Campbell Regeneration:

The law of God is hid in his heart. The living oracles dwell in his mind, and he grows in favor with God as he grows in the knowledge of God and of Jesus Christ his Lord. As a newborn babe he desires the unadulterated milk of the WORD of God, that be may grow by it; for as the thirsty hart pants after the brooks of water, so pants his soul after God. Thus he lives to God, and walks with him. This is the character of the regenerate - of him that is born of God - of the new man in Christ Jesus. This is that change of heart, of life, and of character, which is the tendency and the fruit of the process of regeneration, as taught and exemplified by the apostles, and those commended by God, in their writings.

Our opponents
contend for a regeneration begun and perfected before faith or baptism -

a spiritual change of mind by the Holy Spirit,
antecedent to either knowledge, faith, or repentance,
of which infants are as susceptible as adults; and , therefore, as we contend, make the gospel of no effect.

By way of reprisals, they would have their converts think that we go for nothing but water, and sarcastically call us the advocates of "water regeneration."

They think there is something more sublime and divine in "spirit regeneration"; and therefore claim the title of orthodox.

A TYPE g5179 tupos a sampler (“type”), i.e. a model (for imitation) or instance (for warning):

If you IMITATE that pattern and are baptized IT WILL SAVE YOU.

1Pet. 3:21 The like figure [ANTITYPE] whereunto even BAPTISM DOTH ALSO NOW SAVE US

Based on the PATTERN prophesied, practiced and commanded by Jesus BAPTISM DOES SAVE.

Why would you give someone an UNLAWFUL wage to CONTRADICT the one who died to set the PATTERN?

Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done,
        but according to his mercy he saved us,
        by the washing [BAPTISM] of REGENERATION, [g3824 paliggenesis rebirth spiritual renovation]
        and RENEWING of the Holy SPIRIT
; [g342 Anakainosis renewing OF our once holy spirit]

Matt. 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you,
        Except ye be converted [baptized Acts 3:19]
        and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
         Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, [A new spirit]
         he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Baptism gives one A new, holy spirit, washes away sin asks Jesus to add you to His School (only) and has one's spirit translated into the heavenly kingdom.  Other SAVED passages do not do that.  Ephesians 2 is deliberately taken out of context.  Paul, is telling already-saved brethren how to be KEPT SAFE.

Heb. 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him:
        for he that cometh to God must believe that he IS,
        and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.

The Greek kai in Mark 16:16 is cumulative.  Faith that Jesus is the Christ the.SON of God and NOT god does not SAVE you: it gives one the Authority or the POWER to be baptized and wash away thy sins CALLING on the Name of the Lord.

The Assembly of Christ is defined inclusively and exclusively in the PROPHETS.  God put His WORDS into the MOUTH of the Prophets. Spirit is never a person but a PARABLE to compare our breath (spirit) to God's.  There is never a spirit GOD enabling God claimed.  The Gospel is PREACHED by God's Spirit in Isaiah.  Baptism is the SPIRIT'S prophetic promise of how BAPTISM is a MARK between the believer who will want to be baptized and the DAMNED.

An Original Isaiah Scroll found with the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Isaiah.Wash.DSS.gif

Faith, Pistis meaning to COMPLY is what enables or forbids Baptism.
Baptism is FOR or in ordder to FORGIVENESS for those with faith.
Baptism Washes away our Sins because this is Jesus' method of Calling or ASKING for A good conscience or A holy spirit. A holy spirit is required to READ BLACK text on BROWN paper.

THOSE who are APISTOS or "believeth not" are DAMNED because they refused to come to the light. The word means that they are treacherous and deceptive.  Contrary to Unity in Diversity in Ephesians 4 the Cuning Craftsmen or SOPHISTS are speakers, singers, instrument players. and are MARKED as LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

IT IS A FLAT CONTRADICTION TO SAY THAT:
        We are saved (initially) by Faith Through Grace AND that Baptism does NOT save but is a demonstration of Faith
        so that we are saved by Christ Alone.

The One God the Father put His WORDS into the MOUTH of the MAN Jesus of Nazareth..
Jesus Confirmed that PATTERN defined by the Prophets to eye-- and ear-- witnesses.
These WITNESSES put that confirmation of the PATTERN into EPISTLES intended to be READ.

John 12:47 And if any man HEAR my words,  [The spoken LOGOS or Regulative Principle]
        and believe not, I judge him not: for I came not to judge the world, but to save the world.
John 12:48 He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words,
        hath ONE that judgeth him:
        the WORD that I have SPOKEN, the same shall judge him in the last day.

        shall not depart out of thy
MOUTH,
        nor out of the
MOUTH of thy seed,
        nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the Lord,
        from henceforth and for ever.

THE EUNUCH WAS READING ISAIAH

Acts 8:35 Then Philip opened his mouth,
        and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.

Rom. 10:16 But they have not all OBEYED the gospel.
        For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath BELIEVING our report?

Acts 8:36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water:
        and the eunuch said, See, here is water;
        what doth HINDER me to be baptized?

Acts 8:37 And Philip said,
        IF thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest.
        And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
Acts 8:38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still:
        and they went down both into the water,
        both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
Acts 8:39 And when they were come up out of the water,
        the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, t
       that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.

Luke 7:29 And all the people that heard him,
        and the publicans, justified God,
        being baptized with the baptism of John.
Luke 7:30 But the Pharisees and lawyers
        rejected the counsel of God against themselves,
        being not baptized of him.

John 12:42 Nevertheless among the chief rulers also
        many believed on him;
        but because of the Pharisees they did not confess him, lest they should be put out of the synagogue:

David YoungGalatians 3:16-26: So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

Gal. 3:26 For ye are all the children of God by faith IN Christ Jesus.
Gal. 3:27 ĕt-ĕnim , (What I mean to say is)
        as many of you as have been baptized into Christ
        have PUT ON Christ.
One never gets the Bridal Garment without washing.

[27] quicumque enim in Christo baptizati estis Christum induistis

David YoungRomans 10:8-11: The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, that is, the word of faith weare proclaiming: That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved. As the scripture says, “Anyone who trusts in him will never be put to shame.”

A right standing with God is grounded in a simple faith and a simple confession, which leads into a transforming relationship with God based on trusting and following Jesus Christ.

Romans 10 involves all of the STEPS naturally followed in order to become a DISCIPLE of Christ.

Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men,
And all the people that heard him, and the publicans, justified God,

He that believeth  

him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. Matt 10:32

being baptized with the baptism of John. Luke 7:29 and is baptized shall be saved

But whosoever shall deny me before men,

But the Pharisees and lawyers rejected the counsel of God against themselves,   but he that believeth not  
him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. Matt 10:33 being not baptized of him. Luke 7:30 shall be damned Mark 16:16
Matthew Henry in Joel 2:28-32 notes that: "The promise began to be fulfilled on the day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit was poured out, and it was continued in the converting grace and miraculous gifts conferred on both Jews and Gentiles. "The judgments of God upon a sinful world, only go before the judgment of the world in the last day.

"Calling on God supposes knowledge of him, faith in him, desire toward him, dependence on him, and, as evidence of the sincerity of all this, conscientious obedience to him. Those only shall be delivered in the great day, who are now effectually called from sin to God, from self to Christ, from things below to things above.

The PROMISE [Evangelistic Office] of the Holy Spirit meant that, as promised, Jesus in His Glorified state would return to the upper room and "pour out what you SEE and HEAR."  The baptism of Spirit (wind) and fire is promised for the RACE OF VIPERS who can NOT be baptized as the SEAL that one is a Lost Spirit FOUND.

Jesus appeared to Paul as the PROMISED Comforter or Paraclete.

Acts 22:13 Came unto me, and stood, and said unto me,
         Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him.
Acts 22:14 And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee,
        that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One,
        and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth.
Acts 22:15 For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard.
Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou?
         arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins,
        calling on the name of the Lord.

Zeph. 3:7 I said, Surely thou wilt fear me, thou wilt receive instruction;
        so their dwelling should not be cut off, howsoever I punished them:
        but they rose early, and corrupted all their doings.
Zeph. 3:8 Therefore wait ye upon me, saith the Lord, until the day that I rise up to the prey:
        for my determination is to gather the nations,
        that I may assemble the kingdoms,
        to pour upon them mine indignation, even all my fierce anger:
         for all the earth shall be devoured with the fire of my jealousy.
Zeph. 3:9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language,
        that they may all call upon the name of the Lord, to serve him with one consent.

David Young: 

We have a choice to make when it comes to Jesus Christ.
        God leads us to himself,
        as he woos us to Jesus and his gospel BY HIS SPIRIT

The Wedding Ceremony logically includes COURTING people in person since they SAY that Jesus was God in the FLESH.

HOLY SCRIPTURE IS THE PROPHETS AND OTHER PROPHECIES "CONCERNING ME."  God put His WORDS into the MOUTH of the prophets without a SPIRIT PERSON to make Himself Intelligible.  The Holy Spirit BREATHS or puts INSPIRATION into the SCRIPTURES and does not appear in the SALUTATIONS of each Epistle which is PART of the PERFECT Scriptures.

Rom. 1:1 Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle,
        separated unto the gospel of God, [Theos]
Rom. 1:2 (Which he had promised afore by his PROPHETS IN THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
Rom. 1:3 Concerning his Son Jesus Christ our Lord
[Kurios],
         which was made of the seed of David according to the flesh;
Rom. 1:4 And declared to be the Son of God with power,
        according to the spirit OF holiness, by the resurrection from the dead:
Rom. 1:5 By whom we have received grace and apostleship,
         for obedience to the faith among all nations, for his name:

Rom. 1:16 For I am not ashamed of the GOSPEL of Christ:
         for it is the power of God unto salvation
         to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.

IT IS BLASPHEMY TO SAY THAT GOD WAS INCAPABLE OF PUTTING HIS WORDS INTO MOUTHS WHO PUT THE WORD INTO EPISTLES.

Rom. 1:17 For therein [GOSPEL] is the righteousness of God revealed from faith to faith:
        as it is written, The just shall LIVE by faith.
Rom. 1:18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness
        and unrighteousness of men, who hold the TRUTH in unrighteousness

The Truth is the Word or Logos as God's Regulative Principle which OUTLAWS and MARKS rhetoric, singing or playing instrument

Rom. 16:25 Now to him that is of POWER to stablish you 
        according to my GOSPPEL,
        and the PREACHING of Jesus Christ,
        according to the revelation of the mystery,
        which was kept secret since the world began,
Rom. 16:26 But now is made manifest,
        and by the scriptures of the prophets,
        according to the commandment of the everlasting God,
        made KNOW to all nations for the obedience of faith:
Rom. 16:27 To God only wise, be glory through Jesus Christ for ever. Amen.

2Tim. 1:8 Be not thou therefore ashamed of the TESTIMONY of our Lord,
         nor of me his prisoner: but be thou partaker of the afflictions of the gospel according to the power of God

Rev. 19:9 And he saith unto me, Write,
        Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb.  [SAVED by being CLOTHED with Christ at Baptism]
        And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.
Rev. 19:10 And I fell at his feet to worship him. And he said unto me, See thou do it not:
        I am thy fellowservant, and of thy brethren that have the TESTIMONY of Jesus:
        worship God: for the
TESTIMONY of Jesus is the SPIRIT of prophecy.

Heb. 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past
        unto the fathers by the prophets,

But we must decide to believe. We must make the decision to place our faith in Jesus Christ and
         accept all 16  that God offers to us through him. Baptism is central because it is the method by which we express this decision to God.

Heb. 1:2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his SON,
        whom he hath appointed heir of all things,
        by whom also he made the worlds;  165. aion, Messianic period

The MAN Jesus was NOT God but was in the FORMA or IMAGE: God wants us to see a SINGULAR Being and a Servant.

Heb. 1:3 Who being the brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person, and upholding all things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high;


David Young and Elders:
        But we must decide to believe. We must make the decision to place our faith in Jesus Christ and
         accept all 16  that God offers to us through him.
         Baptism is central because it is the method
         by which we express this decision to God.

PETER BY THE JESUS AS HOLY SPIRIT SAYS THAT BAPTISM SAVES US.

The MASCULINE method of conveying God's WORD is either READ or SPEAK.  It is not possible for a man with a WORLD VIEW to speak without lying to God and about Him.

The Glorified Jesus is in the STATE of Holy Spirit:

1Pet. 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust,
         that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh,
        but quickened by the Spirit:
1Pet. 3:19 By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;
1Pet. 3:20 Which sometime were disobedient,
        when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing,
        wherein few, that is, eight souls were SAVED BY WATER
1Pet. 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us
        (
not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, [Jewish baptisms]
           but the REQUEST FOR a good conscience  [A holy spirit-ours]
          toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:T

The death, burial and RESURRECTION is the TYPE:  We obey a FORM or ANTI-type) without which there is no remission of sins.

John 6:42 And they said, Is not this Jesus, the son of Joseph,
        whose father and mother we know? how is it then that he saith,
        I came down from heaven?

God is WORD in the same sense that He is LIGHT PERSONIFIED.  God the Father put His Word into the Mouth of Jesus without measure or METER. Spirit is never a person bu  is a figure or parable to HIDE from those OF the World.

John 6:43 Jesus therefore answered and said unto them, Murmur not among yourselves.
John 6:44 No man can come to me,
        except the Father which hath sent me draw him:
        and I will raise him up at the last day.

It is NOT a Holy Spirit god but the FATHER who draws.  However, the Father uses MEANS vested with His power.

John 6:45 It is written in the prophets,
        And they shall be all TAUGHT of God.
        Every man therefore that hath HEARD,
        and hath learned of the Father,
        COMETH unto me.

JESUS WAS NOT OF THIS WORLD AND HE WAS SENT TO SEEK LOST SPIRITS WHO ARE NOT OF THE WORLD BUT PILGRIMS AND SOJOURNERS.

The little flock, the WAY that is called a SECT A Narrow, exclusive, invisible kingdom COULD NOT contradict god their father.

Acts 2:41 Then they that gladly received his WORD were baptized:
        and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

John 6:46 Not that any man hath seen the Father, save he which is of God, he hath seen the Father.
John 6:47 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me hath everlasting life.

The MAN Jesus of Nazareth did not come from heaven.  Jesus s the MANNA or BREAD OF LIFE.

John 6:48 I am that bread of life.
John 6:49 Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead.
John 6:50 This is the BREAD which cometh down from heaven,
        that a man may EAT thereof, and not die.
John 6:51 I am the living bread
        which came down from heaven: if any man EAT of this bread,
        he shall live for ever: and the bread that I will give is my FLESH,
        which I will give for the life of the world.

John 6:58 This is that bread which came down from heaven:
        not as your fathers did eat manna,
        and are dead: he that eateth of this bread shall live for ever.

This is the Direct Command and the universal EXAMPLE of Jesus once each week, free of charge.

John 6:59 These things SAID he in the SYNAGOGUE, as he taught in Capernaum.
John 6:60 Many therefore of his disciples, when they had heard this, said, This is an hard saying; who can hear it?
John 6:61 When Jesus knew in himself that his disciples murmured at it, he said unto them, Doth this offend you?

What would offend their little pagan-trinitarian UNholy spirit is that God would not let them set up another TEMPLE and fleece the widows.  Anyone with reading ability would have access to God's Spirit or MENTAL DISPOSITION just by reading.

Col. 4:16 And when this epistle is read among you, cause that it be read also in the church of the Laodiceans; and that ye likewise read the epistle from Laodicea.

John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of MAN ascend up where he was before?
John 6:63 It is the SPIRIT that quickeneth;
        the flesh profiteth  [your songs or sermons] nothing:
        the WORD that I speak unto you, they are
SPIRIT, and they are life.
