First of all we need to know, that in predictable mind numbing consistency, all manner of satanic nonsense and mumbo jumbo is taught by the proponents of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion (mainstream Christianity) on this crucial topic. All this, too, when it is the most important event within the life of a potential son or daughter (Spiritual novice) of The Father, and brother or sister of Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ).
Let’s be very clear about this, for I am not exaggerating one jot or iota when I state that mainstream Christianity (the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion) commits more blasphemies regarding Baptism than it does on most other things. The only exceptions being The Roman Catholic Mass and The Trinity Lie, they, being the biggest blasphemies of all.
Moreover, we should not be surprised by this, for if a Spiritual novice is not protected by true Christian shepherds, at this crucial time in their Spiritual development, this is a vital unfastened window through which The Adversary can, and does, climb in order to steal away vulnerable new converts. This invariably occurs if the Christian Spiritual shepherds and/or overseers (Elders or Pastors) are not on their Spiritual guard duty and thereby protecting the charges for whom they are responsible, that is, in assisting them on their way to that strait narrow path of redemption.
Now this protection, in the first instance, should take the form of sound Good News (Gospel) Grace filled teaching about the coming Kingdom of God. That means, making sure that the new convert understands that they’re being called of The Father to His Son, Yashua Messiah. They also need to understand that the reason they are coming to Baptism is because The Father has brought them (dragged them) to this point in their lives:
John 6:44 (MCV) NO MAN can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw (drag) him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
This means, also, that it needs to be made plain to them, in no uncertain terms, that it is not something that they have made a self generated decision to do. This nonsensical idea that it is a self-generated decision based upon a mainstream Christian idea that man has freewill, which is pure nonsense, must be removed from their thinking. They must understand that our calling is just that; a calling:
Ephesians 4:1 (MCV) I therefore, the captive of The Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the CALLING wherewith ye are CALLED.
1 Corinthians 1:26 (MCV) For ye see your CALLING, brethren, how that not many wise men after the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are CALLED.
Moreover, this is an awesome display of the Godhead’s power within our lives; it is nothing but a wonderful miracle, and it is essential that the new convert is made aware of this foundational Truth.
The new convert also needs to know what living under Grace really means, that is, living under ‘The Law’ of Christ, which is not THE LAW (of Moses). Paul mentions this ‘Law’ of Christ twice:
Grace, which is The Law of Christ is thus described as our LOVE of God the Father and His Son and also our LOVE for our neighbours, for this fulfils The LAW (of Moses), including The Ten Commandments which are just a summary of the Whole Law of Moses:
Romans 13:10 (KJV) Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore LOVE is the fulfilling of The Law.
Now because the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion does not understand this crucial element in our walk with Yashua Messiah, they do not teach, fully, the fact that new converts are new Spirit led men and women when they emerge from the Baptismal water and that the old man/woman of sin dies in the watery grave with Yashua Messiah:
Romans 6:3-4 (KJV) Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His death? 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.
The new convert needs to know, too, what Confession means and that it is a one-off event at Baptism. They also need to know about the commitment of taking up their cross, that is, ‘counting the cost’ before Baptism and being prepared to suffer the trials of this life and not quit when the going gets tough, and to keep on believing come what may, that is, growing in faith and trust.
Most importantly they need to know that ‘salvation by works’ is a heinous blasphemy, and that they will change for the better as Yashua Messiah leads them to change and empowers them to change through the Power of The Holy Spirit.
Boot strap self help, self righteousness and works by our own strength, or self improvement through self-generated will power is of no use to Yashua Messiah at all. He needs men and women who are prepared to voluntarily follow Him, willingly rely on Him and trust Him, and change because they want to follow and change, not because they have to change and follow, that is, by obeying the commandments, as did The Pharisee Canaanite Jews – in the letter only.
All new converts need to learn and know these real fundamentals before they are Baptised – if they cannot agree with these fundamentals then you know that they have already been led astray by the adversary and are not receptive to The Truth. To prove what I am saying is true, here are two very straight forward verses from The Holy Scriptures:
John 6:65-66 (KJV) And He said, Therefore said I unto you, that no man can come unto me, except it were given unto him of my Father. 66 From that many of His disciples went back, and walked no more with Him. (The italicised word ‘time’ I have removed from verse 66, it being a KJV translator’s corruption by addition)
Note this and note it firmly in your minds, these learners (disciples) were offended at the thought that they were called of The Father to His Son, and this is because they wanted to think (in their puffed up vain minds) that they had made the decision to follow Yashua Messiah, not because it was The Father’s will and His will alone. This, dear people, is the stumbling block for those of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion (mainstream Christianity), for they cannot accept this Truth. I know this, too, for I have gone head to head with many of them in the past over this crucial concept and they stubbornly refuse to believe it, and in turn make the lame judgemental accusation of calling me a Calvinist – which I am not.
OK, so if our new converts have no problems with any of the above important points, and are prepared to admit that they are sinners in need of redemption, and are willing to repent, that is, they have an inner desire to want to repent (change) from their old ways and have a new desire not to sin, then there is no valid reason why they should not be baptised. This should then be followed immediately by the laying on of hands, after their dipping, in order to receive the gift of The Holy Spirit, as displayed for us here:
Acts 8:15-17 (MCV) Who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive The Holy Spirit: 16 (For as yet he it was fallen upon none of them: only they were Baptized in the name of The Lord Jesus.) 17 Then laid they their hands on them, and they received The Holy Spirit. (see link No. 1 below)
Please note, none of these changes allude to change via our own strength, self-discipline or through self-generated efforts at commandment keeping, as many blasphemers would have us believe. (see link No. 2 below) After Baptism and the receiving of the Holy Spirit the convert is saved and if he or she were to drop down dead an anno-second after this event, they would, in the future, enter the Kingdom of God in the First Resurrection when Yashua Messiah returns to this earth to set up His Kingdom – The Kingdom of God.
Let this momentous Truth sink in, especially all those deceived people who follow a doctrine of “Exposing Those Who Contradict”, that is the deceased L. Ray Smith’s satanic slave-ation teaching, for if we are not saved after having received the gift of The Holy Spirit then those who teach such blasphemies will be in serious trouble in the resurrection.
So with my opening preamble finished, let’s move on to some of the more laughable ideas of the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion regarding Baptism and, of course, the water sprinkling of little ones immediately comes to mind, otherwise known as “Christenings” in the AngliCAIN faith. The thing is, is this water sprinkling nonsense Baptism? No, a zillion times no, how can it be? In order to be baptised the baptizee has to know what he or she is doing and has to understand the commitment involved, how can a helpless little one make those kinds of crucial decisions about their own lives? The whole idea is a joke – a Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religious joke, and a complete mockery of Baptism.
So what is a Christening, and what does it represent? Easy, at worst, it represents symbolic circumcision, and at best it represents a meaningless religious blessing. In reality, though, it’s just a hangover of the Judaic tradition of when eight day old boys were circumcised to meet with the demands of the Old Covenant Law. Obviously the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion would not want to be seen openly observing and giving its blessing to such a blasphemous event, now that Grace has come in, so they camouflage it with sprinkling the little one with water. On the surface it all looks very harmless, with the even more pointless god-parents, but underneath it’s all a meaningless satanic religious ritual and deception.
Right, what do we have next? Ah yes, The Alpha Course and its Holy spirit weekend, and what a load of blasphemous rubbish that is. How can that be I hear you ask, The Alpha Course brings thousands of people to Jesus, doesn’t it – especially in the UK? Well, yes, it brings thousands of people to a Jesus, but which Jesus, the real Lord Jesus Christ – Yashua Messiah, or a counterfeit long haired effeminate wimp Jesus with a goatee beard otherwise known officially as Rome’s marketing logo? In Truth these images are all based upon Leonardo da Vinci’s self portraits and not Jesus Christ at all.
So what is the spirit and doctrine behind this Alpha Holy spirit weekend, for the instructors within this course pride themselves highly on their use of The Bible in order to teach their potential new converts? Unfortunately, as with much of Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religious teaching, they get hold of a Biblical story and twist it to suit their needs.
In this case it’s the story of Peter and Cornelius, and they make it a catalyst or an excuse to move away from sound Baptismal teaching, just because Cornelius received gift of The Holy Spirit before Baptism. Here, they erroneously quote: “without Baptism.” Now is this true, and what is the real issue at play here within this story? (See link No. 3 below) For elsewhere Peter emphatically says this, and I quote:
Acts 2:37-38 (MCV) Now when they heard this, they were pricked in their heart, and said unto Peter and to the rest of the Messengers (apostles), Men and brethren, what shall we do? 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be Baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Now did the Cornelius event set a precedent that changed what Peter was teaching here regarding the only process involved with Baptism? Was Yashua Messiah trying to confuse us regarding the process to salvation through Baptism by allowing Cornelius to receive the gift of The Holy Spirit BEFORE Baptism? No way, never in a zillion years, because the Cornelius event was a one off event all about Peter, not Cornelius, Cornelius was just a tool or an agent that Yashua Messiah used in order to help Peter repent of his Judaism – his obeying, his Commandment keeping or his Law keeping. Do you know the story? If not, then read it, for it makes fascinating reading and you will find it in Galatians 2:11-21 and Acts 10.
It starts off with Peter having a problem which is described in Galatians 2:11-21 whereby he withdrew from eating with non-Israelites, being in fear of those who were still of the Judaic persuasion, those of the circumcision within Peter’s congregation (blasphemers). Paul admonishes Peter quite severely for his behaviour and then Yashua Messiah follows up with the vision of the beasts in a sheet in Acts 10. In Acts 10:28 Peter refers to his problem:
Acts 10:28 (MCV) And he said unto them, Ye know how that it is an unlawful thing for a man that is an Israelite to keep company, or come unto one of another nation; but God hath shewed me that I should not call any man common or unclean.
Reading between the lines we can plainly see that this was a tough lesson Peter had had to learn and we can also see that this is the real issue of this passage of Holy Scripture, not the fact that Cornelius had received the Holy Spirit prior to being Baptised. This, in turn, means that it was not a precedent for everyone to be birthed in this way. It was a one off and yet, contrary to this, this is just what the deluded numbskulls of the Alpha Course do. Look folks, The Holy Spirit cannot reside with sin; the body of sin MUST die in the watery grave of the Baptismal pool and any so called spiritual birthing without this happening is very likely a counterfeit birthing. It’s the work of charlatans and tricksters.
A point worth mentioning here, as an aside, is that those of the Roman Catholic faith try to get around their all authoritative Peter the Pope nonsense by saying that the Peter in Galatians is not Peter the Apostle but, rather, another Peter. Ha; ha; the things these tricksters and counterfeiters try and pull in order to defend their religious quackery. There is only one Cephas or Kephas or Peter in The New Testament and he received a firm admonishment from Paul for his Judaising and hypocrisy in refusing to eat with non-Israelites. This means that their ‘Pope’ was 1) not in full authority and 2) most definitely not infallible!! Chuckle; chuckle; chuckle, the house of cards that is Roman Catholicism or The Roman Cult.
Finally, and very importantly, you must make sure your Baptism is into Yashua Messiah’s (Jesus Christ’s) name ALONE and not into the pagan Trinity. (See link No. 4 below) And with that, it’s a cut!
