God's sinless SON Jesus took immersion baptism and fulfilled the Righteousness how much we.
3:14 But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee,and comest thou to me?3:15 And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thusit becometh us to fulfil all righteousness. Then he suffered him.3:16 And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of thewater: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw theSpirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:3:17 And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, inwhom I am well pleased.
Love, VioletTrue, but really, if people at the last minute of their lives (like the malefactor) (especially on the battlefield) accept Yahshua as Lord and Saviour, what happens to them? Are they not saved?
Personally, and respectfully, I would not go to war without being baptized in the first place. There ARE soldiers being baptised our in the field; I've seen the videos.
Other than that, I prefer having water baptized since I'm living right now. Will I place it before Yahshua? No! All I need is to find a Christian that I can be baptized by water.
You can't place water baptism before Jesus as He is the one who commanded it~
YHWH more cares about the heart and soul is at.
He cares that the heart and soul are in full submission to His word!
I have imported this comment/ question from the other thread as I just posted it a little while ago and I believ it deserves an answer.
Of course it does.Yes I do believe we shgould be baptised.
In truth not one was baptised before coming to salvation.
But doesn't the Bible say to repent, be baptized and then you will receive salvation?Can you give me your opinion on this Violet. If a person confesses, repents, gives their life and is born again . If that person trips on the way to the baptismal hits their head and dies before getting wet where would he go?
I believe if the person you speak of was fully intending baptisn, yet died on the way, that yes, he would go to heaven.
Because God knows the future and knew this person's true intent.My salvation was complete when Jesus said it is finished He paid my price in full. When I open my heart to Him I am born again and this new ( eternal life ) comes into my heart.
None who are not saved should bother getting baptised because all they will do is get wet. Jesus said you must be born again.After that new birth we gladly follow in steps of obediance.
If you don't agree I hope you can still love me as a brother. As a young man in Christ I used to argue endlessly over doctrines thinking every point a battle to be won at all cost. Later I found this was not God's heart but indeed was my flesh trying to be spiritual- this can never truly be accomplished. Jesus said we must above all else Love our heavenly Father and love each other. I pray God's peace on your home and heart, your brother Larry.
