gonna find out what is Baptism all about, and why it is important?
Messianic's & Christians who say they believe in Yeshua
(Jesus) should follow His example, and be Baptized.
Baptism is for believers of Messiah.
His followers were Baptized, and you will see this later in this
These are two clear verses that say Baptism is essential to enter the
Kingdom of Heaven!
John 3:5 Yeshua answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born
of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of Elohim.
Mark 16:16 He that believeth and
is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be
Does Baptism Mean?
From a derivative of G911; to make whelmed (that is, fully wet); used
only (in the New Testament) of ceremonial ablution, especially
(technically) of the ordinance of Christian baptism: - baptist,
"to be fully
wet" or in another words is
Romans 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us
as were baptized into Yeshua Messiah were baptized into his death?
By being Baptized into his
death, it shows us the importance of Baptism.
of you as have been baptized into Messiah have put on
By being baptized into Messiah
we put on Messiah
This is important
Corinthians 15:53 For this corruptible must put on incorruption,
and this mortal must put on immortality
This is why it is so important
that we put on Yeshua . By doing so in a spiritual sense we put on
incorruptible, and immortality over over bodies, minds, and spirits, so
that we too become incorruptible.
Matthew 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
Spirit, and with fire:
The word "Fire" in the Greek means:
A primary word; “fire” (literally or figuratively, specifically
lightning): - fiery, fire.
On fire figuratively, fire
represents to be purged, made clean, and pure.
John 1:33 And I knew him not: but he
that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom
thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is
he which baptizeth with the Holy Spirit.
John Baptized with water, but
Yeshua Baptized with the Holy Spirit.
to them, Go into all the world, proclaim the gospel
to all the creation.
Mark 16:16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved, but he who
does not believe will be condemned.
the only verse that sounds like it is linked to salvation, however take
notice to the word "believes" and then it says "and is baptized" will
person has to be saved, and then they have to realize that they need to
be baptized, just like everyone in the New Covenant.
them, Go into all the world, proclaim the gospel to all
and is baptized will be saved, but he who does
not believe will be condemned.
is very important for a true follower of Messiah.
their is the thief on the Cross next to Yeshua (Jesus), and he
repented at the last minute, and of
course was not Baptized.
Still he was forgiven.
He certainly did not follow Messiah UNTIL that very moment.
He was certainly not a Christian by any means. At the very moment on
the cross his heart changed.
Christ new it, and accepted it.

this working if you are a follower, and believer of
1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized
into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be
bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.
Acts 1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but
ye shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days hence.
This next verse is over looked
because of The Command by Messiah in Matthew 28:19 has been taken to
mean it is the application, when it is the prescription.
28:19 Go ye
therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the
Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit:
Matthew 28:19, and Acts
are really no different at all.
Matthew 28:19 is the Command
The command of what to do.
Acts 2:38 is the order.
The order is how to do it.
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said to them, Repent and
let every one of you be baptized in the name of Yeshua Messiah
for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy
this verse says "ON THE NAME" of Yeshua
Nowhere in Acts or the Epistles is it written that anyone was ever
baptized like it is written in
Matthew 28:19 in the Father, and of the Son, and of The Holy
Spirit. The scripture tell us that this formula was not used.
Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them,
"REPENT" to Who? the HEAVENLY
"FATHER" of course.
and be baptized everyone of you in
the name of Yeshua Messiah
for the remission of sins, and
ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Here it is the "Father" "Son"
and "Holy Spirit" right here in Acts 2:38.
"Into" the name of the Father, and
of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Matthew 28:19, and Acts 2:38 are one of the same! If
understood, and applied correctly.
The E. W. Bullinger Companion
Bible states that it should be "into" which means your entering
The Jay P. Green Sr.
Interlinear Bible says the same thing. "into"
Why is the word "into" so important? The reason being is because you
are entering something. It is an agreement between you, and Yehowah it
is like another vow, just like a marriage vow.
Romans 6:3 Know ye not, that so many
of us as were baptized into Yeshua Messiah were baptized into his
Acts 19:5 When they heard this, they
were baptized in the name of the Master Yeshua .
JP Green Interlinear Bible
proves that this verse should read this way "INTO" the name.
The word "into means "entering" Like you are entering something.
Galatians 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized
into Messiah have put on Messiah.
The KJV got it right here
"INTO" Once again you are "entering" Christ we are putting on the
faith of Christ.
More Verses About Baptizing in
he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name
of the Master (Lord) Yeshua .)
Acts 10:48 And he commanded
them to be baptized in the name of the Master. Then prayed they
him to tarry certain days.
Acts 19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of
the Master Yeshua .
22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy
sins, calling on the name of the Master.
6:3 Know ye not, that so
many of us as were baptized into Yeshua Messiah were baptized into his death?
of you as have been baptized into Messiah have put on
So we see that there are many
more verses proving that it should be done in Messiah's name.
"His Name" not a generic Greek, Latin, English Hellenized name, rather
"His name" which clearly indicates His original Hebrew Name Yeshua ,
not a translation of a translation that the Greeks, and English people
gave Him which is Iesous, Isa or Jesus, nor anything else except Yeshua
The name that the Heavnly Father gave to him.
2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized
everyone of you in the name of Yeshua Messiah for the remission
of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
"receive the gift of the Holy
Spirit" We need his Holy Spirit in us so we may have eternal life.
of him that raised up Yeshua from the dead
dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken
your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you.
need the Holy Spirit in us to be in the first Resurrection (first
1:14 That good thing which was committed unto thee keep by the Holy
Spirit which dwelleth in us.
It is very clear here, in this verse
that the Holy Spirit can dwell in us if we are believers of Messiah.
We do it so we can have the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Baptism means to be immersed (get
fully wet, and go under)
Simply put we are to follow Yeshua
's (Jesus) example of obedience. It is an out ward sign showing our
faith in Yeshua . It also show that we enter into His death, and are
covered with eternal life.
- What is Baptism all about?
It should be performed into the
name of Messiah
- How should Baptism be performed?
Still it is alright do it into the name of the Father, and of the
Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
Since both are Scripture, Scripture cannot be broken!
To receive the gift of the Holy
Spirit, and to be obedient to Messiah, by following his example.
- Why should Baptism be done?
had called the people unto him with his disciples
also, he said unto them, Whosoever
let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and
Sense this is a very important topic, and sense the scripture would
seem to indicate, at least two different ways of doing a Baptism.
Even though Matthew 28:19, and Acts 2:38 are basically one of the
Matthew 28:19, is the prescription,
and Acts 2:38 is the application.
It should be done "into the name of Yeshua " just has the apostles
performed it. However it can be done into the name of the Father, Son,
and Holy Spirit at the same time.
