8.23.19 David Young Renew.org dedicated to Joanne, Gerald Coggins, Don Craig,  Nancy and Bob Webb

Church Creed: Jesus Christ
     We believe that Jesus Christ IS GOD who became HUMAN to save us from our sins.

Simple Simon in Synagogue School marks that as IGNORANCE of Scripture or worse.
Jesus Who was made Christ 30 years after HE came in the flesh calls that BLASPHEMY.
John calls that the mark of ANTICHRIST
Num. 23:19 God is NOT A MAN, that he should lie; neither the SON OF MAN, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?
This proves that SON OF MAN is not a term denoting DEITY.  When you speak beyond that which is written iit is almost impossible not to blaspheme.  Accusing God AS Spirit and Jesus, over and over, of not being able or brave enough to claim that he was really GOD IN THE FLESH which John calls ANTICHRIST.
1Sam. 15:28 And Samuel said unto him, THE Lord
        hath rent the kingdom of Israel from thee this day,
        and hath given it to a neighbour of thine, that is better than thou.
1Sam. 15:29 And also the Strength of Israel will not lie nor repent:
        for he is NOT A MAN that he should repent.

Hos. 11:9 I will not execute the fierceness of mine anger,
      
I will not return to destroy Ephraim:
        for
I am God, and NOT MAN; the Holy ONE
        in the midst of thee: and I will not enter into the city.

Again, any one speaking beyond the Word, Logos or Regulative Principle sell their own WORDS (Corrupt them says Paul).  Some even say that if Jesus understood OUR culture He would not have denied that He wasn't really the MAN JESUS but was The Lord-God.

John 4:23 But the hour cometh, and now is,
        when the true worshippers
        shall worship the Father in SPIRIT [The only place]
        and in truth: [The Word, Logos, Regulative Principle against
                speakers, singers or instrument players.
         for the Father seeketh such to worship him.
John 4:24 God is a SPIRIT:
        and they that worship him must worship him
        in spirit and in truth.

The MAN Jesus of Nazareth was born in the FLESH of the seed of David 30 years before God anointed Him and MADE HIM TO BE both Lord and Christ.

Luke 24:38 And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled?
        and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?
Luke 24:39 Behold my hands and my feet, that it is I MYSELF [must have been mistaken?]
        handle me, and see;
        for a spirit HATH NOT FLESH AND BONES,
        as ye see me have.
Luke 24:40 And when he had thus spoken,
         he shewed them his hands and his feet.
Luke 24:41 And while they yet believed not for joy, and wondered,
        he said unto them, Have ye here any meat?
Luke 24:44 And he said unto them,
        These are the words which I spake unto you,
        while I was yet with you,
        that all things must be fulfilled,
        which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms,
        concerning me.

Jesus of Nazareth in His transfigured STATE of Holy Spirit continued to guide the Apostles into all truth. Jesus ascended to take His blood into the heavenly Tabernacle and Descended and "poured out what you see and hear."

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:  [nothing mankind can do or speak or sing]
        the WORDS that I speak unto you,
        they are
SPIRIT, and they are life.

SPIRIT is a parable word to hide from the Jewish Clergy to define how God puts His WORDS into the MOUTH of A Moses, the Prophets and LASTLY Jesus of Nazareth Who exists in the STATE of Holy Spirit from which He and all Spirits of Lost Spirits came.

CLICK FOR THE PASSAGE WHICH REFUTES THIS CREED.

ALL of Scripture which God put into the Mouth of the Prophets and other Passages IS the meaning of SPIRIT. APT elders are commanded to remove Cunning Craftsmen or SOPHISTS-- rhetoricians, singers, instrument players (Ephesiahs 4) so that the rest of us can hold SCHOOL: Disciples do not pay to watch others perform a worship experience.  Jesus said that God HIDES form them and Paul says that THEY ARE LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE.

Aristotle: Melody Deceives: "Poets also make use of this in inventing words, as a melody "without strings" or "without the lyre"; for they employ epithets from negations, a course which is approved in proportional metaphors..

The form of diction should be neither metrical nor without rhythm.
 If it is metrical, it lacks persuasiveness, for it appears artificial, and at the same time it distracts the hearer's attention, since it sets him on the watch for the recurrence of such and such a cadence..

According to Philo, the gods of the pagans exploit this weakness of men. For the sake of a better effect, and with the intention of more easily cheating their devotes, that they have set their lies to melodies, rhythms and meters.." Click for more.

The Jewish clergy said that Jesus "made himself God" when Jesus always denied any input in miracles or speaking.
Jesus said that they BLASPHEMED because He always claimed to be thee Son of God.


CLICK FOR THE PASSAGE WHICH REFUTES THIS CREED.

Jesus Christ the Righteous is the promised Comforter or Paraclete.  He, as promised, returned to the upper room in the STATE of Holy Spirit (never a person) and Poured out what you SEE and HEAR.

The Always-Pagan Triads were father god, mother-spirit goddess and son "NexGen" god.
God Imaged His PERSONAL triad nature as the SINGULAR Jesus who was the FORMA so no Disciple could accidentally think of Three gods in One.


8.18.19 Lots of added SCRIPTURE to refute false assertions below.
  1. The ONE God the Father calls this ignorance because He has denied it dozens of times.
  2. Simple Simon, being most gracious, would call it Biblical Illiteracy.
  3. John repeating Jesus rebuking ancient modern Scribes and Pharisees calls it BLASPHEMY.
  4. John also calls it the mark of ANTICHRIST.
  5. Peter calls it STRONG DELUSIONS so that it becomes IMPOSSIBLE to just READ the Word as the mark of true males. He identifies the mark as LYING WONDERS which are any religious OPERATION or OBSERVATION which claims the authority of God.
  6. An Assembly of Christ RESTS or Stops whatever you did today and has the One-Piece Pattern as a School of what Jesus commanded.  Students do not hire professional performers.
  7. Any one INTERESTED in Holy Scripture will not BLASPHEME the Spirit which defines how God puts His WORD into the MOUTH of A Moses, The Prophests and LASTLY into the MAN Jesus of Nazareth.
Godly people once trusted Elders (the only Pastor-Teachers) and "invested" huge sums of money.  Their money, time, spiritual family, and life was invested in the local congregation.  The Year 2,000, just in time, saw the rise of wolves who were neutered by Dominant Clergy who often use the patterns of domination.

Acts 19:36 Seeing then that these things cannot be spoken against,
        ye ought to be quiet, and to do nothing rashly.
Acts 19:37 For ye have brought hither these men,
        which are neither robbers of churches
,
        nor yet blasphemers [saying that Jesus was God] of your goddess.

The PATTERN is to get foolish people to REPPURPOSE the investment which does not belong to them.  The WORLD VIEW is the Kosmoss, the Ecumenical or the kingdom of the Devil.  Most people would land in prison if they REpurposed another man's cows.

Rom. 2:21 Thou therefore which teachest another, teachest thou not thyself?
        thou that preachest a man should not steal, dost thou steal?  [Tithes and Offerings is STEALING]
Rom. 2:22 Thou that sayest a man should not commit adultery,
        dost thou commit adultery? thou that abhorrest idols, dost thou commit SACRILEGE

The More CIVIL Greeks knew the evil of people to used or disposed of COMMON PROPERTY.


Minimal Disciples (students) of Christ do not follow the Last-Days PATTERN of heaping millions on "temples" and replace the faithful, cast a VIsion CASTING (Wicca promoted by Lynn Anderson and Hope Network), and in the pattern of Rick Atchly who made all of those promises dismissed them with "that was then but this is now"

Zech. 10:2 For the idols have spoken vanity, and the DIVINERS have seen a lie,
        and have told false dreams; they comfort in vain:
        therefore they went their way as a flock, they were troubled,
        because there was no shepherd.
Zech. 10:3 Mine anger was kindled against the shepherds,
        and I punished the goats:
        for the Lord of hosts hath visited his flock the house of Judah,
        and hath made them as his goodly horse in the battle.

These false teachers prophesy (or as the meaning should be, "preach") out of their own heart (verse 17). They are not preaching God's message, neither has God sent them. What kind of message do they preach that causes God to denounce them? It is exactly the opposite of the message God's true ministers are preaching. God has commissioned His ministers to lift up their voices like a trumpet and show the people their sins (Isaiah 58:1), for they face a future of impending destruction if they fail to respond and repent of them (Ezekiel 3:19; 4:2-3; 5:2-4, 8-10, 12-17; 6:11-14; 12:10-16).

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.

All of thest statements are treating Scripture DISHONESTLY.  Some are marked by Jesus as BLASPHEMY. Some are marked by John as the sign of ANTIChristCONTRARY to Unity in Diversity in Ephesians 4, Jesus Christ in His STATE of Holy Spirit had Paul say that THEY ARE LYING IN WAIT TO DECEIVE. 

Those speakers being USED by this group are ALL dedicated to getting your church financed and the Casting a Vision (sorcery) to Transition the congregation of Widows and honest people who trusted the elders, into the Christian Church Denomination.  The last lurch toward Babylon was in 1906 but began again in 1927 with the founding of the NACC.  That men who trust in riches and position can TOTTER along is the proof of "supernatural powers" whom God has delusioned so that they CANNOT speak the truth.  You only have to offend one of Christ's Little Flock of "lost spirits" to get yourself fitted for a millstone.  I told you so in about 1995 when the first Purpose Driven Move of fleecing the lambs began.  If anyone faithful to the Church of Christ (the Rock) which was defined inclusively and exclusively in the prophets contact me in confidence

IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR A CHRISTIAN, DISCIPLE OR STUDENT OF CHRIST TO THRUST THESE STATEMENTS ON ANYONE BUT THOSE OF THE WORLD, KOSMOS, THE ECUMENICAL OR THE KINGDOM OF THE DEVIL. KAIRS IS THE NAME OF THE DEMON SON OF ZEUS.  I WILL DISCUSS THIS CREED IN DETAIL.

Church Creed: Scriptures
We believe in the God of the Scriptures, a just and loving God who lives in the PERSONS of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God created all things and He loves His creation. God wants everyone to be in a relationship with Him.

Church Creed: Jesus Christ
     We believe that Jesus Christ is God who became human to save us from our sins.

Church Creed: The Holy Spirit
We believe that the Holy Spirit is God who PERSONALLY dwells in believers
         for the sake of transforming us into Jesus’ likeness.
We believe that the Spirit  
       
empowers us to be like Christ,
        supplies US with spiritual gifts,
        and leads us in the will of God.
We believe we are to be filled with the Spirit.

Additionally,
        we are always trusting and relying
        on the presence of the Holy Spirit
.

Church Creed: The Scriptures
We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are inspired of God, infallible, and perfect. We believe that God expects us to be obedient to the Scriptures, and that He will bless us when we obey Scriptures, even if popular culture might contradict Scripture.

Church Creed:
Sin, Salvation, and Faith

We believe that all humans have sinned and that our sins separate us from God and bring God’s judgment upon us.
        We believe that only God’s Grace can REDEEM us from being lost,
        and that SALVATION comes to us THROUGH FAITH in Jesus as both Savior and Lord.

Church Creed: We believe in salvation by GRACE through FAITH.
        We believe that saving faith demonstrates itself in obedience to the will of God.


Church Creed: Baptism
We believe that water baptism by immersion serves as the point at which 
        we die to our lost selves, are buried, and are raised to a resurrected life in Christ.
We believe that in baptism sins are washed away THROUGH faith and because of grace.
We believe that everyone who calls on the name of the Lord NEEDS to be baptized into Christ Jesus.

Church Creed: The Second Coming
We believe that Jesus Christ will return to gather His people at the end of time, raising all of humanity from the dead.
We believe that those who have put their faith in Christ will be raised to eternal life, but those who have refused to BELIEVE in Him will be raised to eternal death. We believe in living prepared for Jesus’ second coming.



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 the Word:

HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN OR DISCIPLE OR STUDENT

A CHRISTIAN ATTENDS THE ASSEMBLY OF CHRIST: IT'S ONE-PIECE PATTERN IS FOR APT ELDERS AS THE. ONLY PASTOR-TEACHERS TO TEACH THAT WHICH HAS BEEN TAUGHT.  Elders or Overseers in the Synagogue stood over the reader to make certain that he did not add, subtract or even presume to make vocal inflections.

DAVID YOUNG: In the Greek text of Matthew 28:19, there is a primary imperative command in this verse, which we translate “make disciples.46 This command is modified by three phrases describing how we are to make disciples.  We make disciples in three ways: by

1) GOINGGoing and Sowing rebukes Resting and Nesting.

God is not worshipped in HOUSES built by human hands nor by the WORKS of human hands.  There are lots of inexpensive ways to GO into the whole community with teaching material at a fraction of the cost of OFFERING a Worship Opportunity to keep the Word or Regulative principle SILENT.  The operative words for the Synagogue and Ekklesia was to READ or SPEAK.

Jesus was sent and Evangelists were sent INTO the WORLD (Kosmos, Ecumenical or the kingdom of the Devil in mortal battle with the kingdom of God which is WITHIN.

The purpose was to present the Gospel that Jesus is here to rescue lost spirits, pilgrims and sojourners of the world.

Many or most are CALLED but few are chosen because they are the always AFFLICTED by the Earth-born or Dust People.

The Assembly of Christ is a COVERT: an Umbrella or safe house where the collected pilgrims can REST while the religionists as LOCUSTS (muses) collect the masses.

A preacher is KERUX as a Herald.  He carries the message of a superior to another. He does not open or alter the message.  The message is PREPAID and he cannot ask for more pay.  IF YOU PLAN TO RE-PURPOSE OTHER PEOPLE'S PROPERTY THERE IS NO REDEMPTION.

Plat. Laws 12.-[941a-b]   If anyone, while acting as ambassador [presbeutēs] or herald [kērux], conveys false messages from his State to another State, or fails to deliver the actual message he was sent to deliver, or is proved to have brought back, as ambassador or herald, either from a friendly or hostile nation, their reply in a false form,
        —against all such there shall be laid an indictment for breaking the law
        by sinning against the sacred messages and injunctions of Hermes1 and Zeus, and an assessment shall be made of the penalty they shall suffer or pay, if convicted.
        Theft of property is
uncivilized, open robbery is shameless:
        neither
of these has any of the sons of Zeus practiced,
      through delight in fraud or force. Let no man, therefore, be deluded concerning this or persuaded either by
poiētōn or by any perverse myth-mongers [muthologōn] into the belief that, when he thieves or forcibly robs, he is doing nothing shameful, but just what the gods themselves do.1 That is both unlikely and untrue; and whoever acts thus unlawfully is neither a god at all nor a child of gods;

1 Cp.Plat. Rep 378 ff., Plat. Rep. 388 ff. Hermes [KAIROS] is specially in mind, as notorious for his thefts and frauds; cp. Homer Iliad 5. 390; 24. 395, etc.

Xen. Cyrop. 1.6.38 you must not only utilize what you may learn from others, but you must yourself also be an inventor of stratagems against the enemy, just as musicians render not only those compositions which they have learned but try to compose others also that are new.  Now if in music that which is new and fresh wins applause, new stratagems in warfare also win far greater applause, for such can deceive the enemy even more successfully.

Aristot. Nic. Eth. 1175b.1

But things that are akin to things of different kinds must themselves differ in kind.
        [3] A still clearer proof may be drawn
        from the hindrance that activities
        receive from the pleasure derived from other activities.

For instance, persons fond of the flute
        cannot give their attention
to a philosophical discussion [The LOGOS or Regulative Principle]
        when they overhear someone playing the flute,
        because they enjoy music more than the activity in which they are engaged;
                therefore the pleasure afforded by the music of the flute
               
impairs the activity of study.

"Philodemos considered it paradoxical that music should be regarded as veneration of the gods while musicians were paid for performing this so-called veneration. Again, Philodemus held as self-deceptive the view that music mediated religious ecstasy. He saw the entire condition induced by the noise of cymbals and tambourines as a disturbance of the spirit. (Paul called it mad or insane) He found it significant that, on the whole, only women and effeminate men fell into this folly."

Renew.org gives several examples where Jesus SAVES without baptism.  When SPIRIT falls on men like Cornelius the ONLY result is speaking WORDS.  God always puts His WORD into the MOUTH of a Moses, The Prophets and Lastly Jesus of Nazareth.  SPIRIT is figurative or a PARABLE (to fool the wise: speakers, singers, instrument players] to explain to the Lost Sheep.
Jesus was sent to SEEK and save Lost Spirits: They are IN the World but they are not OF the World.  As Jesus is from ABOVE but his clergy enemies were from BENEATH or Tartarus. By direct command in Numbers 10 the godly Jews were not to COME or be Assembled in The Church of Christ (the Rock) to the sounds of vocal or instrumental rejoicing.

Matt. 28:19 Go ye therefore,  and TEACH all nations,

“My father was anxious to see me develop into a good man,” said Niceratus, “and as a means to this end he compelled me to memorize all of Homer; and so even now I can repeat the whole Iliad and the Odyssey by heart.”

Homiletes in an evil sense

Xen. Sym. 3.6 “Well, do you know any tribe of men,” went on the other, “more stupid than the rhapsodes?
“No, indeed,” answered Niceratus; “not I, I am sure.”

“No,” said Socrates; “and the reason is clear: they do not know the inner meaning of the poems. But you have paid a good deal of money to Stesimbrotus, Anaximander, and many other Homeric critics, so that nothing of their valuable teaching can have escaped your knowledge.

Homiletics (Ancient Greek: ὁμιλητικός[1] homilētikós, from homilos, "assembled crowd, throng"[2]), in religion, is the application of the general principles of rhetoric to the specific art of public preaching.[1] One who practices or studies homiletics may be called a homilist, or more colloquially a preacher.

Renew.org fiddles with God chossing people but we know How He picks those.  The Assembly is defined as a SCHOOL only for DISCIPLES or Students.  If you mount an attack on anyone not as MODERN you will repel and not attract disciples.  I know from BAD, BAD experience
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.
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.

2) baptizing, and

Baptism SAVES because it iis the God and Christ ordained way to REQUEST A good conscience or A holy spirit (ours).  Obediience rests on the PLEDGE made by Jesus Christ.  Baptism is the SEAL or way to separate:

The tiny flock of lost spirits whom Jesus protects FROM anything taught by men or those who SELL the free water of the Word.
From those OF the World, Kosmos, Ecumenical or the kingdom of the Devil.

3) teaching obedience to all of Jesus’ commands.

This is both INCLUSIVE and EXCLUSIVE.  An Assembly or School of Christ is defined INCLUSIVELY and EXCLUSIVELY in the PROPHETS.

Matt. 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things
        whatsoever I have commanded you:
        and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world [Messianic age]. Amen.

Jesus defined Holy Scripture for His new Creation as the Prophets and other prophecies CONCERMING ME.
Jesus made these propheces more certain by signs and wonders and witnessed by EYD-- and EAR--witnesses.
Thes witnesses left us a MEMORY and those who private interpret or further expound DESPISE God's Spirit and are marked as false teachers.

At A New Day, David Young and Stan Grandberg will say that Elders MUST GO and be replaced by APOSTLES (senior ministers already) because the church rest and DEPENDS on Apostles as THE FOUNDATION.   God will never let them confess that.
1Cor. 3:11 For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.

Luke 11:49 Therefore also said the wisdom of God,
         I will send them prophets and apostles,
        and some of them they shall slay and persecute

Eph. 2:20 And are built upon [EDUCATED BY]
        the foundation of the apostles and prophets, 
        Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Eph. 3:5 Which in other ages was not made known unto the sons of men,
        as it is NOW REVEALED unto his holy apostles and prophets
        by the SPIRIT;

Spirit produces WORDS from God in a face-to face fashion.

Eph. 4:11 And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;


Job One of TRUE Elders is to silence the cunning craftsmen or SOPHISTS: speakers, singers, instrument players or any one who imposes what Jesus did NOT command.

2Pet. 3:2 That ye may be mindful of the WORDS
        which were SPOKEN before by the holy PROPHETS,
        and of the commandment of US the APOSTLES of the Lord and Saviour:
Rev. 18:20 Rejoice over her, thou heaven,
        and ye holy apostles and prophets; for God hath avenged you on her.

Church Creed: Scriptures
We believe in the God of the Scriptures, a just and loving GOD who lives in the PERSONS of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. God created all things and He loves His creation. God wants everyone to be in a relationship with Him.

Church Creed: Jesus Christ
     We believe that Jesus Christ is God who became HUMAN to save us from our sins.

You can TEACH for profit your own songs and sermons but you cannot BELIEVE something radically repudiated in all Scriptures.

Dave.Miller.Jesus.Claims.to.Deity.As.God

Dave Miller and others claim that Jesus' always called the SON OF MAN is some devious way of claiming to being DIVINITY meaning that GOD CAME IN THE FLESH.  Jesus called that Blasphemy and John identified it as the mark of Antichrist.

John 5:26 For as the Father HATH LIFE IN HIMSELF
        so hath he GIVEN to the Son to have life in himself;

The only Self-living Lord [yhwh] the only REAL god [elohim] gave the MAN Jesus the authority or supernatural power and the Spirit without measure or "meter" means that God the Father put His WORDS into the MOUTH of Jesus to warn any other man against speaking their own Words. Isaiah 58. Only the elected or preserved tiny remnant of Israel and lost spirits among the Gentiles can HEAR the Word, Logos or Regulative Principle.

John 5:27 And HATH GIVEN him authority to execute judgment also,
        BECAUSE he is the SON OF MAN

Heb. 4:14 Seeing then that we have a great high priest,
       that is passed into the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, 
       let us hold fast our profession.
Heb. 4:15 For we have not an high priest
        which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities;
        but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.
1Tim. 2:5 For there is ONE GOD
        and one mediator between God and men,
        the MAN Christ Jesus;

Jesus Christ the Righteous is the promised Comforter or Paraclete.  He, as promised, returned to the upper room in the STATE of Holy Spirit (never a person) and Poured out what you SEE and HEAR.

The Always-Pagan Triads were father god, mother-spirit goddess and son "NexGen" god.
God Imaged His PERSONAL triad nature as the SINGULAR Jesus who was the FORMA so no Disciple could accidentally think of Three gods in One.

Matt. 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said,
        Thou art the Christ, the SON of the LIVING GOD.

Disciples will hear Peter deny that the SON is one of the SELF-LIVING Gods.

Matt. 26:63 But Jesus held his peace.
        And the high priest answered and said unto him,
        I adjure thee by the
LIVING GOD
        that thou tell us whether thou be the Christ,
        the SON OF GOD.
John 6:69 And we believe and are sure
        that thou art that Christ, the Son of the
LIVING GOD
Acts 14:15 And saying, Sirs, why do ye these things?
        We also are men of like passions with you,
        and preach unto you that ye should turn from these vanities
        unto the
LIVING GOD, which made heaven, and earth




The Assembly or School of Christ is defined INCLUSIVELY and EXCLUSIVELY in the Prophets.
God always puts His WORDS directly into the MOUTH of a Moses, THE Prophets and LASTLY Through His Son the MAN Jesus Christ

Hos. 1:10 Yet the number of the children of Israel shall be as the sand of the sea,
        which cannot be measured nor numbered;
        and it shall come to pass, that in the place where it was said unto them, Ye are not my people,
        there it shall be said unto them, Ye are the sons of the living God.


Matt. 16:15 He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am?
Matt. 16:16 And Simon Peter answered and said,
        Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
Matt. 16:17 And Jesus answered and said unto him,
        Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona:
        for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee,
        but my Father which is in heaven.
Matt. 16:18 And I say also unto thee,
        That thou art Peter, and upon this ROCK I will build my church;
        and the gates of hell shall not prevail against i
t.

THE ROCK IS:

Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.

God put His WORDS into the MOUTHS of the Prophets: SPIRIT is a parable to define the usual process.  There is never a SPIRIT PERSON to ENABLE (C Leonard Allen) the Father and So by making them INTELLIGIBLE.  The eunuch was reading the GOSPEL in Isaiah and when he understood that Jesus was the MESSIAH or CHRIST:

Jesus defines BLASPPHEMY: if you say that Jesus even made himself God by Jesus performed all of His Work by God working and speaking through him

IF you say that GOD came in the FLESH when it was Jesus who came in the flesh 30 years before God MADE HIM TO BE both Lord and Christ then John says that you are an ANTICHRIST.

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 [Raptured] Philip,
         that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.

Caught away in Greek

SPIRIT is never a PERSON and SPIRIT produces WORDS as BREATH.

When the Holy Spirit prevented Paul from going to Bithynia it was and is the Spirit OF Christ.  I am sorry that everyone messed Prepositions 101a.


There is ONE God and ONE Mediator or Intercessor  between God and Man.


1Tim. 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved,
        and to come unto the knowledge of THE TRUTH
1Tim. 2:5 For there is ONE GOD
        and one mediator between God and men       
        the MAN Christ Jesus;
1Tim. 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all,
        to be TESTIFIED in due time.
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.
Acts 2:22 Ye MEN of Israel, hear these words;
        Jesus of Nazareth, a MAN approved of God among you
               BY miracles and wonders and signs,
                      which God DID BY him in the midst of you, as ye yourselves also know:
Acts 2:23 HIM, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God,
         YE have taken, and by wicked hands have CRUCIFIED and slain:
Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the HOUSE [excluding clergy] of Israel know assuredly,
        that God HATH MADE that same Jesus,  [33 Years AFTER He was born IN the Flesh and had been RESURRECTED]
        whom ye have crucified, both LORD and CHRIST
Rev. 1:5 And from Jesus Christ, w
        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, [not SPIRIT]

These Apostates say that THEIR FAITH saves them and BAPTISM is just to PROVE their faith]

Heb. 9:13 For if the blood of bulls and of goats,
        and the ashes of an heifer sprinkling the unclean,
         sanctifieth to the purifying of the flesh:
Heb. 9:14 How much more shall the blood of Christ,
        who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without spot to God,
        purge your conscience from dead works
        to serve the living God?

Jesus in His Glorified STATE was-is HOLY SPIRIT. His BLOOD was taken to God as an OFFERING before anyone could be SAVED by being BAPTIZED otherwise REPUDIATE the finished work of Jesus

Heb. 10:22 Let us draw near with a true heart in assurance of faith,
        having our hearts SPRINKLED from an evil conscience,
        and our bodies washed [baptized] with pure [purifying] water.

Heb. 1:1 God, who at sundry times and in divers manners
        spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,
1Pet. 1:10  Of which salvation the prophets have enquired and searched diligently,
         who prophesied of the grace that should come unto you:
1Pet. 1:11 Searching what, or what manner of time the
        Spirit OF Christ
which was in them did signify,
        when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ,
        and the glory that should follow.
1Pet. 1:12 Unto whom it was revealed, that not unto themselves,
        but unto us they did minister the things,
        which are now reported unto you by them
        that have preached the gospel unto you
        with the Holy Ghost [Spirit OF Christ] sent down from heaven;
        which things the angels desire to look into

Jesus is said to have existed in the KNOWLEDGE of God and by the writings of the prophets.

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; [ages]

Heb. 1:3 Who being

        and the express image of his person,
        and upholding all things by the WORD of his power,

Heb. 1:4  Being made so much BETTER than the angels,
        as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.

Heb. 1:5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time,
        Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee?
        And again, I will be TO HIM a Father,
        and he shall be TO ME a Son?
Heb. 1:6 And again, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world,
        he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
Heb. 1:7 And of the angels he saith,
        Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.
Heb. 1:8 But unto the Son he saith,
        "Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever:
        a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom." 

Church Creed:
The Holy Spirit

We believe that the Holy Spirit is God who PERSONALLY dwells in believers
         for the sake of transforming us into Jesuslikeness.

Holy Spirit means Holy or Divine Breath. When Jesus articulated the WORD it was SPIRIT in person. Jesus put the WORD into the MOUTH of the Apostles and left us a MEMORY as the PERFECT Word of God.

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:  [any song or sermon repudiates Spirit and Word]
         the WORDS that I SPEAK unto you, they are
SPIRIT, and they are LIFE.


Romans 12:1I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that
..........YE present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God,
..........which is your reasonable service.  
            tēn logikēn latreian humōn:

Rom. 12:2 And be not CONFORMED to this WORLD:
        but be YE TRANSFORMED by the RENEWING of your MIND,
        that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Mind and Spirit are often interchanged meaning "the mental disposition} and never a PERSON.
Baptism gives A holy Spirit or a mine RENOVATED
g342.   anakainosis, an-ak-ah´-ee-no-sis; from 341; renovation: — renewing.
We are saved BY Jesus Christ by the MEANS he has decreed:

Titus 3:3 For we ourselves also were sometimes foolish,
        disobedient, deceived, serving divers lusts and pleasures,
        living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
Titus 3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour toward man appeared,
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done,
        but according to his mercy he saved us,
        by the washing of regeneration, and renewing OF [not BY] the Holy Spirit

Titus 3:6 Which he shed on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
Titus 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life.


We believe that the Spirit empowers
        us to be like Christ,
        supplies us with spiritual gifts,
         and leads us in the will of God.
We believe we are to be filled with the Spirit.

Additionally,
        we are always trusting and relying
        on the presence of the Holy Spirit
.

Church Creed: The Scriptures
We believe that the sixty-six books of the Bible are inspired of God, infallible, and perfect. We believe that God expects us to be obedient to the Scriptures, and that He will bless us when we obey Scriptures, even if popular culture might contradict Scripture

Jesus defined Holy Scripture as the Prophets and other prophecies CONCERNING ME.
God didn't command king, kingdom, temple, priests, Levites or animal sacrifices. God regulated those whom He abandoned to worship the starry host because of Instrumental-Trinitarian-Perverted PLAY at Mount Sinai.
Isaiah 1 denies that slaughtering innocent animals was God's plan when He rescued them by Grace.  Isaiah 1 is also the Prophetic Type of Baptism.


Jeremiah
not command
law of silence


Church Creed:
Sin, Salvation, and Faith

We believe that all humans have sinned and that our sins separate us from God and bring God’s judgment upon us.
        We believe that only God’s Grace can REDEEM us from being lost,
        and that salvation comes to us THROUGH FAITH in Jesus as both Savior and Lord.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith;
        and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:
This is living proof that those who despise Scripture (by trying to enhance it) CANNOT and will never read CONTEXT.  Paul is teaching us how to be MADE SAFE from Legalistic Ceremonial Practices.

Baptism and the Lord's Supper is Christ's way to show how we are saved by grace through faith.

Ephesians 2:7 That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.

27 Eph. ii. 10; Phil. i. 11.

Ephesians2.Rom6.gif

Church Creed: We believe in salvation by GRACE through FAITH.
        We believe that saving faith demonstrates itself in obedience to the will of God.


Titus 2:11 For the [1] grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men,


Jesus was GRACE PERSONIFIED.

John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Jesus was WORD made Visible and Audible

Titus 2:12
[2] Teaching us that,
Acts 2:14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
[3] denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,
Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
[4] we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
Titus 2:14
[5] Who gave himself for us,
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them Repent,
[6] that he might redeem us from all iniquity, [Lawlesness]
      Lutron redeem, Luo lavo , cleanse or wash, bathe,

louôpurify, tina ek tôn hamartiôn  
Col. 1:14 In whom we have redemption through his blood,
and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ
for the remission of sins,  
Redemption or Remission happens ONLY after BAPTISM
even the forgiveness of sins:
        [7] and purify unto himself a peculiar people,
                zealous of good works.
and ye shall receive the gift of A holy spirit

THOSE WHO FIGHT BAPTISM REJECT GRACE: 

Ephesians 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.

Ephesians 5:26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it
        with the washing of water by [into] the word,
        ....by [In Verbo, En, Eis, into a school] the word,
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness
        which we have done,  [fulfil the Law]
        but according to his mercy he saved us,
        by the washing of regeneration,
        and renewing of the Holy Spirit; [our spirit needs renewing]
MADE SAFE FROM WHAT DAVID YOUNG PROMOTES WHEN HE REFUTES JESUS

Eph. 2:8 For by grace are ye saved [MADE SAFE] through faith;
        and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

        And the temple of Aphrodite was so rich that it owned more than a thousand temple slaves, courtesans, whom both men and women had dedicated to the goddess [ANATHEMA]. And therefore it was also on account of these women that the city [CHURCH] was crowded with people and grew rich; for instance, the ship captains freely squandered their money, and hence the proverb,
        “"Not for every man is the voyage to Corinth."”Source unknown Moreover, it is recorded that a certain courtesan [hetair-a] said to the woman who reproached her with the charge that she did not like to work or touch wool: "Yet, such as I am, in this short time I have taken down three webs."

Church Creed:
Baptism

We believe that water baptism by immersion serves as the point at which 
        we die to our lost selves, are buried, and are raised to a resurrected life in Christ.
We believe that in baptism sins are washed away through faith and because of grace.
We believe that everyone who CALLS on the name of the Lord NEEDS to be baptized into Christ Jesus.

Scripture defines BAPTISM is the WAY to Call upon the Name of the Lord. 
David.Young.Mark.16.Pistis.Apistos.Calling.gif

IF YOU SAY THAT JESUS WAS GOD IN THE FLESH YOU CANNOT CALL ON HIS NAME.

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 8:36
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 8:37

Even when a vessel has been personally selected by a priest to perform some unique function, it cannot be used until it has been cleansed. However, a human is not passive. Therefore, Ananias told Saul something which he could do. He said:

And now why tarriest thou?
        arise
, and be baptized, and WASH AWAY THY SINS
       
calling on the name of the Lord. Acts 22:16KJV

Or: And now, why delay?
        Go and be baptized and be cleansed from your sins,
        calling on the name of the Lord.' Acts 22:16LIV

Faith says: "Speak Lord, thy servant heareth." How, we wonder in amazement, can we make this command mean: "be baptized because you have been cleansed from your sins?" I don't know how or why so much work is expended to deny the Power of Christ's Spirit to say it like He meant it.

Doesn't this command to Saul sound familiar? It should. It is the Spirit instructions always given when a believer asks: "What next?"

Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do? Acts 2:37

Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you

in the name of Jesus Christ (calling upon the name of) for the remission of sins,
and ye shall receive the
gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38

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

And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified

in the name of the Lord Jesus,
and BY the Spirit OF our God. 1 Corinthians 6:11

Church Creed: The Second Coming
We believe that Jesus Christ will return to gather His people at the end of time, raising all of humanity from the dead.
We believe that 
       those who have put their faith in Christ will be raised to eternal life,
         but those who have refused to believe in Him will be raised to eternal death.
         We believe in living prepared for Jesus’ second coming.

Rom. 10:16 But they have not all OBEYED the gospel.
        For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath BELIEVED our report?
2Th. 1:8 In FLAMING FIRE taking vengeance on them
        that know not God,
        and that OBEY OBEY the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
1Pet. 4:17 For the time is come that judgment must begin
        at the HOUSE of God: and if it first begin at us,
        what shall the end be of them that OBEY NOT the gospel of God?

1Tim. 3:15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know
        how thou oughtest to behave thyself
        in the house of God, which is the church of the living God,
        the pillar and ground of THE TRUTH


Baptism is GOD'S way for us to CALL upon the Name of the Lord.

Notice that the MAN Jesus of Nazareth was neither LORD nor CHRIST until more than 30 years after He was born IN THE FLESH.

Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly,
        That GOD
[Theos] hath made that same Jesus,   [Therefore, Jesus was Not God]
        whom ye have crucified,
        both LORD
[Kurios] and Christ. [33 Years after Jesus was born in the FLESH]
Acts 2:37 Now when they
         heard this,  [and believed]
         they were pricked in their heart,
         and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles,
         Men and brethren, what SHALL we DO?

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them,  [You MUST]
        Repent,
         and be baptized every one of you
         in the name of Jesus Christ. [Calling on His Name]
         for [SO THAT] the remission of sins, 
         and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

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 22:16 And now why tarriest thou?
        arise, and be baptized,
        and wash away thy sins,
        calling on the name of the Lord.

1Pet. 3:21 The like figure whereunto
        even baptism doth also now save us
        (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh,
        [Baptism Saves us but the REQUEST FOR A holy spiririt or A good conscience toward God,)
        BY the resurrection of Jesus Christ:


1Cor. 8:5 For though there be that are called gods,
         whether in heaven or in earth,
         (as there be gods many, and lords many,)
1Cor. 8:6 But to us there is but
        ONE God [Theos], the Father, OF whom are all things,
                and we in him;
        and one Lord [Kurios] Jesus Christ, by whom are all things,
                and we by him.

Paul SILENCES both male and female so that the PATTERN can be carried out.

1Tim. 2:4 Who will have all men to be saved,
        and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. [you need A holy spirit or A good consciousness]
1Tim. 2:5 For there is one God
[Theos],
        and one mediator between God and men,
        the MAN Christ Jesus;
1Tim. 2:6 Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be TESTIFIED in due time.

God put His WORDS into the MOUTH of a Moses, the Prophets and LASTLY Jesus without any HELPER.
The word SPIRIT or BREATH is a Parable word to define this process.  The Spirit OF God is NOT another God as we learned in Prepositions 101aaa.

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.

The WORD, Logos or Regulative Principle is the only source of SPIRIT and LIFE which is the FOOD most preachers refusse to feed the infants on Sunday.

John 6:62 What and if ye shall see the Son of MAN ascend up where he was before?

When you disobey and speak beyond that which is written you almost always blaspheme.

Num. 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie;
        neither the son of man, that he should repent:
        hath he said, and shall he not do it?
        or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

Jesus says of the another Comforter I WILL COME TO YOU. The Comforter or PARACLETE is Jesus Christ (1 John 2)

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.


In His glorified state Jesus is HOLY SPIRIT which is a STATE and never a person other than DEMONS like KAIROS.

Kairos is the Demon or Spirit son of Zeus.  However, SPIRIT never speaks of a person or a god but the MENTAL attitude of that person. Spirit is derived from wind or a blast of air or the FLATULENCE of rude people.

SPIRIT in Hebrew. Holy just means WHOLLY with no flesh, bones, or blood.
SPIRIT in Greek.  Spirit can never define a PERSON but only the Mental Disposition or MIND OF That person

The Spirit OF Christ BREATHED or INSpirited the Prophets

The Prophets radically repudiated the Civil-Military-Clergy complex as robbers and Parasites (PARASITE defines religious instrument noise makers such as Miriam and the Levites. And those who do NOT speak that which HAS been taught.

Christ in the prophets warned about the mercinary prophets who stole words from workshops and told lies.
God made Jesus TO BE both Lord and Christ so that He said My WORDS are SPIRIT. He made the prophecies more certain and the inspired writers left us a memory or THEIR PART.

Peter said this eye-- and ear-- witnessed record is NOT subject to private interpretation or further expounding.

Peter said that the MARK of a false teacher is one who does not speak that which is written for our LEARNING.

Let’s look more closely at baptism in this passage. We are to make disciples of all nations by “baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” Baptizing “into the name of ” means
        we are baptizing people by the authority of the TRIUNE
        God and into a relationship with him as Father, Son, and Holy Spiri

ALL TRIADS CONSISTED OF FATHER, MOTHER (SPIRIT) AND NASTY SON.  Trinity began with TRIPPLE GODDESSES. Theologians not that both MUSIC and POLYTHEISM is a result of feminist or effeminate theology.

The DOVE was the symbol of Semiramis as the MOTHER GODDESS so the SPIRIT SPOKE to declare Jesus as the SON of a FATHER.

JESUS CLAIMED ALL OF THE AUTHORITY AS A SINGULAR IMAGE OF GOD. The people who heard Jesus did not hear Him baptized in the nameS of three gods.
     
Baptismal Formula - Rejects Trinity of Persons

Name here means NAME of the singular Jesus who is God's Image of the always-pagan family of Gods.

The Jews: Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for (in order to) the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. Acts 2:38 Discussion of Eis,... Part Two,... Doctor Jack Lewis on Eis or For.

The Samaritans: (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.) Acts 8:16

The Gentiles: And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days. Acts 10:48 (not lords)

Rebaptized after Pentecost: When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. Acts 19:5
They could not be added to the Church by Jesus Christ until after Pentecost.

Apostle Paul: And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord. Acts 22:16 [This is the clear proof that the "pastor" has no authority to pronounce but Paul was to call on the name consistent with Proselyte baptism]

And I answered, Who art thou, Lord? And he said unto me, I am Jesus of Nazareth, whom thou persecutest. Ac.22:8

I verily thought with myself, that I ought to do many things contrary to the name of Jesus of Nazareth. Ac.26:9

Romans 6: Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Romans 6:3

Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Romans 6:4

Corinthians: Is Christ divided? was Paul crucified for you? or were ye baptized in the name of Paul? 1 Corinthians 1:13

And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6:11

Galatians: For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ. Galatians 3:27

James: Do not they blaspheme that worthy name by the which ye are called? James 2:7

There’s more: baptism is the inauguration into a life of being a disciple. We have been baptized in the authority of the triune God so that we can now obey all the commands of Christ. And we know that HE is with us—“to the very end of the age.

"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

        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:

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.

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.

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.

EPHESIANS 2 SALVATION BY GRACE THROUGH FAITH.

Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith;
        and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

Like the WORD of God, Grace has appeared:

Titus 2:11 For the [1] grace of God that bringeth salvation hath APPEARED to all men,  [Jesus is personified Word, Light, Grace]
John 1:14 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.

Not all sinners are saved by Grace alone:

Titus 2:12
[2] Teaching us that, 
Acts 2:14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, lifted up his voice, and said unto them, Ye men of Judaea, and all ye that dwell at Jerusalem, be this known unto you, and hearken to my words:
[3] denying ungodliness and worldly lusts,

Grace, Like Word, just teaches HOW to be saved that
Acts 2:36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly, that God hath made that same Jesus, whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
[4] we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Acts 2:37 Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what shall we do?
Titus 2:14

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them Repent,
[6] that he might REDEEM us from all iniquity, [Lawlesness]

even the forgiveness of sins:

                zealous of good works.
and ye SHALL receive the gift of A holy spirit
Titus 3:4 But after that the kindness [benignitatem per se gratam]. GRACE as a LIVING BEING
        and love of God
        our Saviour toward man APPEARED,
Titus 3:5 Not by works of righteousness which we have done,
        but according to his mercy he SAVED US,
             BY the WASHING OF regeneration,
             AND renewing of the Holy GHOST;

WASHING: g3067. loutron, loo-tron´; from 3068 [verb; to bathe the whole person]; a bath,), baptism: — washing.

OF REGENERATION:  g3824. paliggenesia, pal-ing-ghen-es-ee´-ah; from 3825 and 1078; (spiritual) rebirth (the state or the act), i.e. (figuratively) spiritual renovation; specially, Messianic restoration: — regeneration.

We are RENEWED to our ORIGINAL STATE before WE made OUR spirit to become UNHOLY
Titus 3:6 Which he SHED on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Saviour;
 

Mandaeands Sabians Iraq Christians

"Sabian" is a word derived from the Aramaic-Mandic verb "Saba" which means "baptised" or "dyed", "immersed in water". "dMandaeans" is derived from "menda" which means in the mandiac language "knowledge". Thus, "Mandaean Sabians" means those who are baptised and who know the religion of God.

Alexander Campbell Regeneration: Hence it came to pass, that all the ancients (as fully proved in our first Extra on Remission) used the word REGENERATION as synonymous in signification with IMMERSION. In addition to the numerous quotations made in our Essay on Remission, from the creeds and liturgies of Protestant churches,

Neither God nor the Spirit OF Christ needs to be RENEWED g3824. paliggenesi÷a paliggenesia, pal-ing-ghen-es-ee´-ah; from 3825 and 1078; (spiritual) rebirth (the state or the act), i.e. (figuratively) spiritual renovation; regeneration.

They WANT to be

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.

Is. 59:20 And the Redeemer shall come to Zion,
        and unto them that turn
        from transgression in Jacob, saith the Lord.

Is. 59:21 As for me,
        this is my covenant with them, saith the Lord;
        My SPIRIT that is upon thee,
        and my WORDS which I have put in thy MOUTH,
        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:

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

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.
