Mark 16 Baptism and Signs 

Jesus promised the baptism of the Holy Spirit only to the Apostles.  That was a SIGN or miracle to prove that the Apostles--only were the authentic ministers of Jesus Christ to preach the message of Jesus to all nations. Peter proves that they were also commissioned to leave the "example" of Jesus which means a written record.

This arrival of the Spirit of Christ as the promised Comforter had two purposes: first, it was to give lowly laborers the power to preach For God in non-Hebrew languages so that the gospel could go to all of the nations.  Secondly, this was a baptism of spirit (wind) and fire by which the enemies of the Word would as chaff be separated from the wheat and burned up with the spirit of fire and the spirit of burning.

The commission of Jesus was to go out preaching to all of these nations and therefore languages: those who believed were to be discipled by baptism and teaching what Jesus had commanded to be taught.  Only those believers who have submitted themselves to discipleship by baptism are called Christians.  A disciple is a student of the Word defined both by the synagogue and ekklesia (church).

At least as delivered to us Mark shows how this commission was carried out.

Mark begins discussing the ARCHE gospel which means "the most important part" of the gospel for we who cannot die for our own sins.  Paul in Romans 6 affirms this when only those who are baptized by "obeying a form" of the work of Jesus Christ are then free from sin.

He records Jesus and John baptizing as the ARCHE GOSPEL by pointing to Malachi who prophesied--by the Spirit of Christ--water baptism. Through this process God would take our crimson-stained garments and make them white as snow.  

For those who would remove the ending of Mark, he ends his record where he began: the command to preach baptism FOR the remission of sins to all nations as they moved outward from Jerusalem. The supernatural SIGNS would be performed by the Apostles ONLY. The SIGNS were commanded and performed only a the beginning of the gospel preaching among the four groups. This did not happen again.
Matt. 28:16 Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee,
        into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them.
Matt. 28:17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him: but some doubted.Mt 28:18
And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying,

        All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth.
Mt 28:19 Go ye therefore, and
teach [disciple] all nations,
        baptiz
ING them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:
        Teach
ING them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
        and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
Mt 28:20

2. Only those who had been discipled by baptising AND ongoing teaching are called Christians.
3. Mark begins and ends by speaking about the command to BAPTIZE.

THE beginning (Arche, most important) of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God; Mark 1:1

The gospel defined by Paul concerning the WORKS OF JESUS CHRIST are the first principle ot the PROTOS gospel. That is, the Gospel is that Jesus provided a way for us to be saved.

The word "beginning" is the word ARCHE: that means that Mark is going to tell us the MOST IMPORTANT part of the Gospel for we who are humans.

Henry George Liddell, Robert Scott, A Greek-English Lexicon

Archŕ , hŕ, (v. arch˘) beginning, origin
beginning,
from the first, from of old, lay a foundation,
from the
beginning, from the first, from of old,
logos the original argument,
the
principal sum, first principle, element

The ARCH is that upon which the structure is built. The GOOD NEWS is that we can obey a FORM of the POTOS gospe.

Therefore, Mark looks back to the GOSPEL prophesied by Malachi and forward to "THE" faith or the Christian system.

As it is written in the prophets, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, which shall prepare thy WAY before thee. Mark 1:2

The voice (shouting) of one crying in the wilderness (a very lonely place), Prepare ye the WAY of the Lord, make his paths straight (level at once). Mark 1:3

Mark then reveals the most important principle of the gospel for those who are not Jesus the Christ.

John DID baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance FOR the remission of sins. Mark 1:4

This was the MARK of the presence of God in the flesh. Many Jews saw this baptizer as a SIGN of Messiah:

And there went out unto him all the land of Judaea, and they of Jerusalem,
        and were all baptized of him in the river of Jordan,

        confessing their sins
. Mark 1:5
And they asked him, and said unto him,
        Why baptizest
thou then, if thou be not
        that Chris
t, nor Elias, neither that prophet? John 1:25

John explains his role to make known the Messiah. The passage noted is:

Mal 4:5 Behold, I will send you Elijah the prophet before the coming
        of the
great and dreadful day of the Lord:
Mal 4:6 And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children
        and the heart of the children to their fathers,
        lest I come and
smite the earth with a curse.

"Salvation" in the words of Peter was "from" this crooked generation: those who are baptized have their spirits translated into a heavenly kingdom.  Those who were saved by repentance and confession in baptism were added to the church or body of Christ.

To understand Malachi it is important to look where Mark points to prove that Baptism was prophesied.

BEHOLD, I will send my messenger, and he shall prepare the WAY before me: and the Lord, whom ye seek, shall suddenly come to his temple, even the messenger of the covenant, whom ye delight in: behold, he shall come, saith the Lord of hosts. Malachi 3:1

But who may abide (comprehend or receive) the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a REFINER'S FIRE, and like FULLER'S SOAP: Malachi 3:2 (To Wash)

The refiner's fire made silver and gold to become a water vessel pure enough to enter into the temple. Our spirit is the temple of God. Fuller's Soap makes Crimson garments as white as snow.

THE WASHING PROCESS BY JESUS CHRIST WAS PROPHESIED TO BE:

Kabac (h3526) kaw-bas, to trample; hence to wash (prop. by stamping with the feet)... WASHING. The Greek Louo (g3068) means to bathe the whole person.

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 us from our sins in his own blood, Re.1:5

The eunuch was a reader of Isaiah and needed to know if Jesus was the one written about in Isaiah. When assured, he wanted to be baptized. Here is the Isaiah Scroll at the Dead Seas:

19. [+of iniquity+] (16) Wash and make yourselves clean and turn away the evil of your habitual practices from before my eyes, stop doing evil. (17) Learn

Isa 1:16 Wash you, make you clean; put away the evil of your doings from before mine eyes; cease to do evil;
      Rachac
(h7364) raw-khats'; a prim. root; to lave (the whole or a part of a thing): - bathe (self), wash (self).

20. to do well, pursue judgement, bless the oppressed, judge the orphan, contend for the widow. (PP)
21. Please come and let us
reason together says YHWH, if your sins are like scarlet they shall be white as snow
22. if they be as
red as crimson they shall be as wool. (19) If you are obedient and you give heed then of the good of the Land [{you shall eat.}]
23. (20) But
if you refuse and you rebel you will be devoured by the sword because the mouth of YHWH has said it.

Mark ends with Jesus REPEATING the statement in Isaiah:

He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved.

believeth pist-eu˘ 2. comply, h˘s ouch hupeix˘n oude pisteus˘n legeis; S.OT625, cf. 646 ; opp. apiste˘, Id.Tr.1228.

He that believeth Not shall be DAMNED.

Apiste˘ to be apistos, and so, II. = apeithe˘, to disobey, tini Hdt., attic: --absol. to be disobedient, refuse to comply

G2632 katakrin kat-ak-ree'-no From G2596 and G2919 ; to judge against, that is, sentence: condemn, damn.

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

Rejected: Aheteo [g114) to set aside, that is, (by implication) to disesteem, neutralize or violate: cast off, despise, disannul, frustrate, bring to nought, reject.

THE ISSUES

First, those who "reject the counsel of God for them by debating baptism" deny that baptism is FOR (Eis) or in order to the remission of sins.   The baptism of the spirit of FIRE and the spirit of JUDGMENT is that those who deny the first part of Mark 16:
Mark 16:16 He that believeth AND is baptized shall be saved;
        but he that believeth not shall be damned.
They are forced to claim that Jesus, the apostles and historic scholars were just flat mistaken or worse.
Second, even those who reject the Word of God by questioning baptism as the means He has commanded insist that THEY are the believers who are given the power ot work MIRACLES.  The word SPIRIT has its literal meaning in a strong wind which is both powerful and invisible: the wind is the BREATH of the Father which is articulated as WORDS in the Son.
The promise of the baptism of the Holy Spirit was promised by John as something upon the generation of vipers or those who had a history of trying to destroy the Word of God.  The image is that of a violent WIND (spirit) which would blow them away from the grain so that they could be burned up.
HOW TO MISS THE MESSAGE

To understand Mark's absolute command that baptism is required in order to be saved one must begin with prophets such as Malachi and Isaiah: the eunuch heard about Messiah and from reading Isaiah wanted to be baptized in water or H20.
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.
2Pet. 1:19 We have also a more sure word of prophecy;
        whereunto ye do well that ye take heed,
        as unto a light that shineth in a dark place,
        until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
2Pet. 1:20 Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation.
TO WHOM WAS PROMISE OF POWER MADE

Here is why ONLY the apostles only would CONFIRM their words with MIRACLES but NOT to pass on.  The SIGN in the case of Cornelius was POURED OUT on the doubting Jews so that they could not DENY the right to baptize a Gentile JUST AS Jeus had commanded Peter and the others.

Only the Apostles were to confirm the Word of Jesus as Jesus confirmed the Word of the Father.
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.
Luke 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
Luke 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer,
        and to rise from the dead the third day:
Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached
        in his name among all NATIONS, beginning at Jerusalem.

Luke 24:48 And ye are witnesses of these things.
Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you:
        but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.Mark 16:14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat,
        and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart,
        because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.
In John 13 at the Last Supper Jesus is speaking only to the 12 and then the 11.
John 14:10 Believest thou not that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? 
        the words that I speak unto you I speak not of myself:
        but the Father that dwelleth in me, he doeth the works.
John 14:11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me:
        or else believe me for the very works’ sake.
John 14:12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me,
        the works that I do shall he do also;
        because I go unto my Father.
John 15:24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did,
        they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.
The MIRACLES performed by Jesus were not as a result of becoming a believer: they were SUPERNATURAL signs that Jesus was the incarnate Word of God as the Son of the Father.
A Sign is: a sign, prodigy, portent, i.e. an unusual occurrence, transcending the common course of nature 
1) of signs portending remarkable events soon to happen
2) of miracles and wonders by which God authenticates the men sent by him, or by which men prove that the cause they are pleading is God's
When the APOSTLES-only would have as he Comforter named Jesus Christ the Righteous working with them as they carried out their commission to perform the SIGNS to the four major groups--were baptized with the Holy Spirit in the upper room (only) what they DID was not proof of THEIR superiority but that THEY were authentice spokesmen for Jesus Christ.

When this was actually carrieid out as recorded by Luke to include ALL THE WORLD.  You will notice that the gospel is not just facts about Jesus: it is the gospel of the kingdom of God.
Acts 1:2 Until the day in which he was taken up,
        after that he through the Holy Ghost had given commandments
        unto the apostles whom he had chosen:
Acts 1:3 To whom also
        he shewed himself alive after his passion by many infallible proofs,
        being seen of them forty days, and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God:
Acts 1:4 And, being assembled together with them,
        commanded them that they should not depart from Jerusalem,
        but wait for the promise of the Father, which, saith he, ye have heard of me.
Acts 1:5 For John truly baptized with water;
        but ye [Apostles] shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.
Acts 1:6 When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord,
        wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?
Acts 1:7 And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons,
        which the Father hath put in his own power.
The PURPOSE of this power or authority with which they could validate ONLY their message was:
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power,
        after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you:
        and ye shall be witnesses unto me
                both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
The 120 had no part in this: they had not been chosen but discipled.
Acts 1:21 Wherefore of these men
        which have companied with us all the time
        that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us,
Acts 1:22 Beginning from the baptism of John, unto that same day that he was taken up from us,
        must one be ordained to be a witness with us of his resurrection.
Acts 1:23 And they appointed two, Joseph called Barsabas, who was surnamed Justus, and Matthias.
Acts 1:24 And they prayed, and said, Thou, Lord, which knowest the hearts of all men, shew whether of these two thou hast chosen,
Acts 1:25 That he may take part of this ministry and apostleship,
        from which Judas by transgression fell, that he might go to his own place.
Acts 1:26 And they gave forth their lots; and the lot fell upon Matthias;
        and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.
On the day of Pentecost All of these male Galilaeans who were baptized SPOKE languages to preach what they had been COMMANDED to preach with authority.

Peter stood up with the ELEVEN and not with the 120 or any other person.  Cornelius praised God in Judean as a SIGN but he was not an APOSTLE and therefore did NOT receive what the eye and ear witnesses received.

WHO WERE THE UNBELIEVERS


Those who accepted Christ were GLADLY BAPTIZED: not a hint of any whining about what they HAD to do.

The GIFT was the gift of A holy spirit (personal) because THEIR spirit had been wasked by the work of God WHEN they asked for it BY THE ACT of Baptism (1 Peter 3:21).  That gave them A good conscience or consciousness or a CO-perception so that as Paul said in 2 Cor 3 they could read BLACK text on BROWN paper. Well documented in the literature and articulated by Walter Scott a "holy spirit" is always in contrast to an UNholy spirit.  "She has a nasty spirit" does not mean that she has another person inside of her.
Mark 9:1 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That there be some of them that stand here, which shall not taste of death, till they have seen the kingdom of God come with power.

Luke 24:45 Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures,
Luke 24:46 And said unto them, Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day:
Luke 24:47 And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached
        in his name among all NATIONS, beginning at Jerusalem.
Luke 24:48 And ye are witnesses of these things.
Luke 24:49 And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you:
        but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high.
Mark 16:14 Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat,
        and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart,
        because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen.

The THEY are the Eleven : the HE is the one who believes if THEY go preach.
THOSE WHO WILL BELIEVE THE PREACHING AND BE BAPTIZED

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;
        but he that believeth not shall be damned

This is always a HE and never a THEY experience.  Effective faith always demands compliance:

A. pepisteukein Act.Ap.14.23 : ( [pistis] ) :--trust, put faith in, rely on a person, thing
        or statement, tini Hdt.1.24 ; t˘i log˘i Id.2.118 ,
2. comply, OPPOSITE to APISTEO 

Those who COMPLY NOT

The Apistos of part B means disloyal and includes the compulsion to deny part A 

Apistos , on,I. Pass., not to be trusted, and so: 1. of persons and their acts, not trusty, faithless, shifty, unreliable, in Prose, a. apo tinos revolt from, or instigation to revolt, could not convince to obey

b. treacherously, Ph.1.516. also klept˘ meaning:

seize or occupy secretly,
effect or bring about
clandestinely, gamon, to be 'smuggled in'
get rid of
imperceptibly

put away, remove, keep out of the way

Apist-e˘ I. disbelieve, distrust, was distrusted, i.e. no one could be sure of knowing, 

II. = apeithe˘, disobey, to be DISOBEDIENT, they refuse to comply, They are not to be trusted, and so of persons and their acts, not trusty, faithless, Act., mistrustful, incredulous, suspicious, Treacherously, cause to REVOLT from. also klept˘ meaning: seize or occupy secretly, effect or bring about clandestinely, gamon, to be 'smuggled in' get rid of imperceptibly 

THE UNBELIEVERS WHO WILL BE ETERNALLY LOST

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


He hath blinded their eyes, and hardened their heart;
        that they should not see with their eyes,
        nor understand with their heart,
        and be converted,
        and I should heal them. John 12:40

Secondly, those who COULD BELIEVE but refused to obey.

These things said Esaias, when he saw his glory, and spake of him. John 12:41

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: John 12:42

Those who refuse to be baptized for (in order to) the remission of sins are NOT believers. And yet those who claim to have the power to work miracles ALSO repudiate Jesus and Mark and Jesus calls the Apistos which means they refuse to comply and prove they do not trust.

Not even those who are baptized to "obey that form of of Doctrine and only THEN are said to be free from sin have any power to work miracles.  Their task is to obey God.

Ro.6:17 But God be thanked, that ye were the servants of sin,
> but ye [2] have obeyed from the heart that [3] form of doctrine which was [1] delivered you. FORM is a sampler ("type"), i.e. a model for imitation

> Ro. 6:18 [4] Being then made free from sin, ye became the servants of righteousness.

There is no promise that they can WORK MIRACLES: the claim to speak in tongues is the claim to WORK MIRACLES no less powerful than raising the dead or handling rattlesnakes from whence "tongues" arose.

The bizarre promise of immunity from snakes and poisonous drinks is completely out of character with the person of Christ as revealed in the Gospel of Mark, the other Gospels and in the whole of the New Testament. Nowhere did Jesus exempt himself or his followers from the natural laws which govern this life, nor did he ever intimate that such exemptions would be given those who believe in him. That such miracles have in fact occasionally taken place is a matter of record; what is to be doubted is that the Lord should have promised them indiscriminately to all believers as part of the blessings which would have been bestowed upon them. (Bratcher and Nida, pp. 520-21)
The Apostles were the UNBELIEVERS in 16:14 will come to believe at Pentecost and THEY were the ones who preached the gospel and confirmed the Word by speaking in all of the minor dialects.

Again, people are tampering with the Word and MINIMIZING common literacy: Luke COULD HAVE said of the HE that was baptized, HE shall be able to perform SIGNS. But SIGNS of what?

Mark 16:17 And these signs shall FOLLOW them that believe;
        In my name shall THEY cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; [real languages]
A Sign is: a sign, prodigy, portent, i.e. an unusual occurrence, transcending the common course of nature 
1) of signs portending remarkable events soon to happen
2) of miracles and wonders by which God authenticates the men sent by him, or by which men prove that the cause they are pleading is God's

Speaking in GIBBERISH learned and induced by musical sorcerers (Rev 18) is a VERY COMMON AS DIRT happening.  In Isaiah 28 and 1 Corinthians 14 it is a SIGN that UNBELIEVERS have your "city" surrounded and ready to kill you ot take you captiv: Heresy means "to lift up with mental excitement to carry you away for the demagogues own purposes always connected to KLEPPTOMA.
FOLLOW does does not mean that the BAPTIZED BELIEVERS PERFORMED. Reading 101a.

3877. parakoloutheo, par-ak-ol-oo-theh┤-o; from 3844 and 190; to follow near, i.e. (figuratively) attend (as a result), trace out, conform to: -- attain, follow, fully know, have understanding.
Mark 16:18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them;
        they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

Did the baptized disciples perform SIGNS that THEY were speaking for God? Or did the Apostles who became true believers after Pentecost perform the SIGNS of their APOSTLESHIP.
CASTING OUT DEVILS
Acts 16:16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer,
        a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us,
        which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:

Acts 16:18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.

"The religious ecstasy induced by music expressed itself either in an outburst of emotions, thus giving rise to religious catharsis, or in a transfer to the state of prophecy. In this way music became an important factor in divination. In the mysteries of the Magna Mater this relationship between music and divination is particulary clear.

Through the din of tambourines, cymbals and flutes
the ecstatic worshiper of the goddess
prophesied the future to those present. 

"In this way music became an important factor in divination. In the mysteries of Magna Mater this relationship between music and divination is particularly clear. Through the din of tambourines, cymbals and flutes the ecstatic worshiper of the goddess prophesied the future to those present. From time immemorial music had been especially valued in the service of prophecy. " (Quasten, Johannes, Music and Worship in Pagan and Christian Antiquity, p. 39)

TONGUES
Tongues were untaught real languages or dialects: Paul told the Corinthians that he spoke in more "dialects" than any of them because that was a gift by which he preached the Gospel in foreign countries.  He told the Corinthians that he would NOT speak these tongues in a congregation where most would understand Koine which was the language of commerce.

Speaking in tongues FOLLOWED CLOSELY only to the Apostles. No male ever spoke in tongues outside of the presence or touch of a apostle: in every case it was to validate the words or purpose of that apostle.  No woman ever spoke in tongues at any time or place: in Corinth the "mad women" would speak gibberish but the "tongues" were minor dialects which everyone wanted to use to no one's education.

SERPENTS
Acts 28:1 And when they were escaped, then they knew that the island was called Melita.
Acts 28:2 And the barbarous people shewed us no little kindness: for they kindled a fire, and received us every one, because of the present rain, and because of the cold.
Acts 28:3 And when Paul had gathered a bundle of sticks, and laid them on the fire,
        there came a viper out of the heat, and fastened on his hand.
Acts 28:4 And when the barbarians saw the venomous beast hang on his hand,
        they said among themselves, No doubt this man is a murderer,
        whom, though he hath escaped the sea,
        yet vengeance suffereth not to live.

Acts 28:5 And he shook off the beast into the fire, and felt no harm.
Acts 28:6 Howbeit they looked when he should have swollen, or fallen down dead suddenly:
         but after they had looked a great while, and saw no harm come to him,
        they changed their minds, and said that he was a god.


RAISING THE DEAD
Acts 9:40 But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning him to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up.
Acts 9:41 And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive.
Acts 9:42 And it was known throughout all Joppa; and many believed in the Lord.
WHO PERFORMED THE SIGNS OF THEIR APOSTLESHIP

Mark 16:19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them,
        he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.
Mark 16:20 And they went forth, and preached every where,
        the Lord working with them,
        and confirming the WORD with signs FOLLOWING. Amen.

If the elders "teach that which has been taught" they do not need signs to confirm and could not perform them because they would not be apostles. In the "never musical" message of Romans 15 they were to speak with one mind and one mouth using "that which is written" defined as Scripture.

Those who claim these signs REPUDIATE the Word JESUS empowered.  The ALWAYS want to confirm THEIR words because as Jesus identified the Scribes and Pharisees as hypocrites by pointing to such teachers, singers and instrument players WITHOUT which you cannot induce SPEAKING GIBBERISH which is a LUSTED-AFTER sign in all perverted pagan relitions.

BE AWARE

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. 

Re.19:20 And the beast was taken, and with him the false prophet that wrought miracles [signs] before him, with which he deceived them that had received the mark of the beast, and them that worshipped his image. These both were cast alive into a lake of fire burning with brimstone.

Rev. 19:21 And the remnant were slain with the sword of him that sat upon the horse, which sword proceeded out of his mouth: and all the fowls were filled with their flesh.
