Jimmy Swaggart Baptism Does Not Save

Jimmy Swaggart Trinity Refutes: 1Tim. 2:5 For there is ONE GOD, and one mediator between God and men, the MAN Christ Jesus

Jimmy Swaggart  Regeneration BY the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal Salvation. (Jn.3:5-8;Titus 3:5)

ANTI-Christs say that God came in the FLESH: Scripture says that Jesus of Nazareth came IN THE FLESH.
ANTI-Christs say that GOD the father needs a SPIRIT GOD to make the words of Jesus INTELLIGIBLE (Leonard Allen]
The ONE GOD puts His WORD into the MOUTH of PROPHETS and his SON

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
; [g165 Aion Messianic Age]

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.


g4151 Pneuma means A Current of Air (not a person). By Analogy or figuratively BREATH.

BREATH is a PARABLE word to explain to mortals how God puts HIS WORDS directly into the MOUTH of the MAN Jesus Who then makes God's WORDS "visible and audible."

John 3:3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily,
        I say unto thee, Except a man be born AGAIN,
        he cannot SEE the kingdom of God.John

The BIRTH is connected with A MAN and not of the Spirit as a god person making the words INTELLIGIBLE Carrol Osburn.

John 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
        Except a MAN be BORN
        of water and of the SPIRIT,
        he cannot ENTER into the KINGDOM of God.

John 3:32 And what he hath SEEN and heard, that he TESTIFIETH;
        and no man receiveth his testimony.

John 3:33 He that hath received his testimony
        hath set to his seal that God is true.
John 3:34 For he whom
        God hath sent SPEAKETH the WORDS of God:
        or God giveth not the SPIRIT
        by measure unto him. [metron or musical meter to be SUNG]
John 3:35 The FATHER loveth the Son,
        and hath given ALL THINGS into his hand

Titus 3:3 For WE OURSELVES also were sometimes foolish,

        living in malice and envy, hateful, and hating one another.
Titus 3:4 But after that the kindness and love of God our Saviour

Isaiah, Jesus, Peter: baptism doth also now save us. The Beast is "a new style of religious music or drama." The MARK is a sign of character including SINGING when the command for God's word is to SPEAK which is opposite to ode. All musical terms or instruments are related to sorcery and to burning. The baptism of SPIRIT (wind) and FIRE is only for the RACE OF VIPERS not qualified to be baptism because they are OF the World.

While it FEELS good all music from the garden of Eden onward is called ENCHANTING or SORCERY.  This ENABLES false teachers of work on those like lambs to the slaughter.
  The VOODOO beat is the source of pseudo-christian music.

It goes back to a tradition that the Greek shrine at Delphi was once guarded by a terrible snake or dragon – Pytho. When I visited Delphi a number of years ago, I visited some ancient ruins that seem to have been the cultic site for the worship of this feminine snake deity.

According to Greek tradition, the god Apollo came to Delphi and wanted to settle there. However, it was already inhabited by the Pytho. Thus, Apollo slew Pytho and gained her name as a title for himself.

This may actually be an etiological story of how a male god (Apollo) suppressed the cult of female goddess (Pytho) in the region of Delphi. The fact that Delphi was considered the “belly button of the earth” or “center of the earth” would indicate that this site was originally a shrine to Mother Gaia or Mother Earth. Snakes are associated with her because they are so close to the earth and live in holes in the earth.

A woman as the “Pythia” or fortune-teller officiated at the Delphic oracle. The Pythia spoke with a foreign voice and divined the future.

Saint Luke is identifying the demonic presence in the young girl with the legend of the pythian serpent at Delphi. The serpent imagery dovetails with the image of Satan as a serpent or dragon.


[1.2.5] One of the porticoes contains shrines of gods, and a
gymnasium called that of Hermes.

In it is the house of Pulytion, at which it is said that a mystic rite was performed by the most notable Athenians, parodying the Eleusinian mysteries.

But in my time it was devoted to the worship of Dionysus. This Dionysus they call Melpomenus (Minstrel), on the same principle as they call Apollo Musegetes (Leader of the Muses). Here there are images of Athena Paeonia (Healer), of Zeus, of Mnemosyne (Memory) and of the Muses, an Apollo, the votive offering and work of Eubulides, and Acratus, a daemon attendant upon Apollo; it is only a face of him worked into the wall.

After the precinct of Apollo is a building that contains earthen ware images, Amphictyon, king of Athens, feasting Dionysus and other gods.

Here there is also a temple of Athena Sciras, and one of Zeus some distance away, and altars of the gods named Unknown

Pausanias Greece Paus. 1.2 But in my time it was devoted to the worship of Dionysus. This Dionysus they call Melpomenus Apollo [Abaddon, Apollyon] Musegetes (Leader of the Muses).

Iliad 1 "Son of Atreus," said he, "I deem that we should now turn roving home if we would escape destruction, for we are being cut down by war and pestilence at once. Let us ask some priest or prophet, or some reader of dreams (for dreams, too, are of Jove) who can tell us why Phoebus Apollo is so angry, and say whether it is for some vow that we have broken,

or hecatomb that we have not offered, and whether he will accept the savour of lambs and goats without blemish, so as to take away the plague from us."

Thus through the livelong day to the going down of the sun they feasted, and every one had his full share, so that all were satisfied.

Apollo struck his lyre, and the Muses lifted up their sweet voices, calling and answering one another.

But when the sun's glorious light had faded, they went home to bed, each in his own abode, which lame Vulcan with his consummate skill had fashioned for them. So Jove, the Olympian Lord of Thunder, hied him to the bed in which he always slept; and when he had got on to it he went to sleep, with Juno of the golden throne by his side.

Paus. 10.5.5 From here the high road to Delphi becomes both steeper and more difficult for the walker. Many and different are the stories told about Delphi, and even more so about the oracle of Apollo. For they say that in the earliest times the oracular seat belonged to Earth, who appointed as prophetess at it Daphnis, one of the nymphs of the mountain.

Jeanene Reese says that MEN should serve women as ADAM SERVED EARTH the Mother Goddess.

Paus. 10.5.7  I have heard too that shepherds feeding their flocks came upon the oracle,
          were inspired by the vapor, and prophesied as the mouthpiece of Apollo.
The most prevalent view, however, is that Phemonoe was the first prophetess of the god, and first sang in hexameter verse. Boeo, a native woman who composed a hymn for the Delphians, said that the oracle was established for the god by comers from the Hyperboreans, Olen and others, and that he was the first to prophesy and the first to chant the hexameter oracles.

Paul cast the PYTHIAN Spirit out of the young gir.

Why Jimmy Swaggart probably CANNOT read the Word or Logos which is God's Regulative principle which outlaws rhetoric, personal opinions, singing, playing instruments or selling the FEE WATER OF THE WORD.

Jeremiah 11:18 And the LORD hath given me knowledge of it, and I know it:
        then thou shewedst me their doings.

Jeremiah 11:19 But I was like a lamb or an ox that is brought to the slaughter;
        and I knew not that they had devised devices against me, saying,
        Let us destroy the tree with the fruit thereof, and let us cut him off from the land of the living,
        that his name may be no more remembered.

Those who get a vision to MOCK JESUS in fulfillment of prophecy ALSO rush to remove CHRIST from their public confession.

Jimmy Swaggart: "Churches of Christ believe that we are saved by Water."

First, as music especially the rock and roll sexual music is always the MARK of people refusing to listen to the Word and is also connected to BURNING.  The Babylonian mother of harlots in Revelation 17 in Revelation 18 uses "lusted after fruits" also defined in Amos 8 in connection with music in the temple to STARVE people for lack of the Word.  The Locusts or MUSES led by Apollon are singers, instrument players or any religious craftsman beyond the Vocational Reader of the Word. John calls them SORCERERS using the same word which identified the original Babylon Mother of harlots in the garden of Eden or the 'Singing and Harp-playing prostitutes."  John said that they HAD once deceived the WHOLE WORLD and Jude warns about their unleashing and says that they are old spirits FOREORDAINED.  John also says that these performance craftspeople WILL BE CAST ALIVE INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE.

Churches of Christ follow the pattern beginning with the Church of Christ (the ROCK) in the wilderness and that a Christian assembly is built upon or EDUCATED by the Prophets and Apostles. The Word or Logos OUTLAWS Personal opinions, personal experiences, pathos or an emotional treatment of the Word, rhetoric, singing, playing instruments or ACTING.


The Flood and the Red Sea are prototypical PATTERNS of baptism which Peter says SAVES because baptism is the only way to 'call upon the name of Jesus Christ' as the ONLY speaker when APT elders teach that which has been taught.

Sodom is another word for Jerusalem where God abandoned the Jacob-cursed and God-abandoned Levites whose instrumental noise was exorcism or sorcery.

AGAIN: Jimmy Swaggart
: "Churches of Christ believe that we are saved by Water."
Churches of Christ believe that we are saved by obeying Christ's instructions:
1Pet. 3:21 The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us (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
Jimmy Swaggart: We are saved by the CROSS
Paul: The death and resurrection of Jesus proved that there are no ceremonially impure people or animals.
Rom. 5:10 For if, when we were enemies,
        we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son,
        much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.

The death, burial, enlivened and the resurrected is a TUPOS or Pattern Intended to be IMITATED.
When we walk in the steps of Jesus we OBEY or iMITATE that Pattern.
THEN, we are given A New or holy Spirit ENABLING disciples to read BLACK text on BROWN paper.
Paul that until we are converted or baptized we will not be able to READ the Word nor when it is PREACHED by being Read in the assembly ONCE EACH WEEK.

THE ONLY WAY TO CONNECT TO JESUS CHRIST IS TO IMITATE THE PATTERN WHICH HE HAS COMMANDED FOR THE OBEDIENT.

Only the Race of Vipers are to experience the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and FIRE.

Matt 3:10 And now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees
        therefore
every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Matt 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance
        but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: 
        HE shall baptize YOU with the Holy Ghost,
[WIND] and with fire:

The WHO are the VIPER race who refused to be baptized or were not qualified.

How does Jesus baptize with with SPIRIT and FIRE? He uses a "fan" for blowing WIND or SPIRIT and then you BURN UP the chaff.

Matt 3:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, 
        and gather his
wheat into the garner
        but he will burn up the chaff with
unquenchable fire.

THE WORK OF JESUS WAS A PATTERN INTENDED TO BE IMITATED BY THOSE OF TRUTH.

Rom. 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized INTO Jesus Christ
        were baptized into his DEAD?
Rom. 6:4 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.
Rom. 6:5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death,
        we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
Rom. 6:6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him,
        that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.
Rom. 6:7 For he that is dead is freed from sin.

PAUL RECYCLES SO THAT JIMMY SWAGGART CANNOT BE ACCIDENTIALLY IN ERROR

Rom. 6:16 Know ye not, that to whom ye YIELD yourselves servants to OBEY, his servants ye are to whom ye obey;
        whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
Rom. 6:17 But God be thanked,
        that ye were the servants of sin,
        but ye have obeyed from the heart that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
Rom. 6:18 Being THEN made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.
