To be 'Born
Again' is a metaphor Jesus used as refer to the baptism ritual:
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.
Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man
born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of
God. Cliff: water and the spirit
means baptism and
then you pray for the Holy Ghost. Metaphorically, repenting is
contract you must read and accept and baptism is the signature you must
draw to bind this agreement between you and God.
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children:
how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them
that ask him?
3: 7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be
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
Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the
word of God, which liveth and abideth forever.
Do not believe
like her's are teaching you (if you want to be a Christian) that to
believe that Jesus died for our sins will get you to enter heaven: no
way, says God: you must repent and baptise, and never deliberately
commit sin again - from then on you can only slip, make
not commit premeditated sins like fornication, murder etc.
Once you have read the Gospel and have fully accepted it as the truth,
you can then enter the phase of repentance and feel true remorse for
your past sins - this just happens; you can't do it by
You may be dragged to tears or just feel deep regret; either
this will be a very sincere and painful feeling in your
Without this, you are not ready for the Baptism. Continue in prayer,
reading, studying and questioning. Once you are ready to
you will consciously decide to discard all that God approves of and
embrace all that God approves of and commands you to do. Now you are
ready to be baptised and receive forgiveness for sins you have
committed up to this moment.
MARK 1: 4 John did baptise in the wilderness, and
preach the baptism of repentance for
the remission of sins.
Baptism: a word
derived from Greek baptizo: "immersing"
Baptizing is responding to the call of God to Repent
and wash away our sins. It is not something you just do, or can be
forced to do; but it is something that happens to you as you
surrender: repent, then walk into that water to be submerged by one 'in
the name of Jesus Christ' Remember "in the name of the father, the son
and the holy ghost" was added later and is false". Only this way you
are born again. You first believe that which you read, then
feel repentance and proceed to discard all that God rejects and embrace
everything Jesus taught you, then you baptise - and you do it
your own will.
Also, those that are really called, are granted wisdom and
understanding by God, so they understand that they must first get
married, then baptise; for else they are in serious danger of
committing fornication (sexual intercourse with married or engaged
persons) as they have known the flesh before and shall naturally desire
it - they would build their house upon sand, tough
teaches them to build their house upon a Rock. MAT 7: 21
Baptism is the first of the two sacraments conveyed to us by Christ.
There is but one baptism available to be executed by men,
not two or three. And it can only be achieved through repentance. Hence
the term "baptism of repentance'. Indeed, we
four kinds of baptism:
The baptism of John the Baptist: it was from God.
MAT 21: 25
The baptism of the first believers, by John the
Baptist, through submergence in water, but prior to
baptism of Jesus, thus not in his name, but solely through
repenting and confessing their sins: MAT 3: 5-6 .
The baptism of The Apostles with the Holy Ghost. ACTS: 2:3
The baptism of believers, through submergence in water and in the name
of Jesus Christ. ACTS: 2:38
We must read the Gospel, understand it, accept it, repent truly in
heart then, through our own will, walk into the Baptism and baptise
into the church of Christ. Baptism without
repentance is no
Baptism but merely a quick dip - and many are so baptised.
are the lukewarm with a 'Christian Tag', not Christians. Jesus tells
us that he will spew them out.
Matt.18:3-4 - And
said, Verily I (Jesus) say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become
as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven. (4)
Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same
is greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Cliff:
Jesus is using 'humble your self like a child' as a metaphor for
baptism. Like a baby is submerged into the water you allow
to do unto you (humble your self through repentance and baptism, for
without these you cannot receive the baptism).
Once we have accepted the Gospel and Christ, and have surrendered our
selves to him, we must baptise.
Baptism is known as 'To be Born Again'; to be a new person; as the old
one is dead and the new one is born.
A wise one who builds his house upon a rock, will first get married,
trying his partner thoroughly with much prayer, at least for one year,
perhaps longer, then take the baptism. For, after this, no fornication
may take place. But, actually, when one is called by Christ, one just
surrenders through baptism, and sinning no longer is possible from then
on: for you are reborn of incorruptible seed: PE1:23.
Act 2:38 Then
Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptised every one of
the name of Jesus Christ' for the remission of sins, and ye
receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. (note that they so received it,
direct from the apostles; but we must pray for the Holy Ghost, so that God
may bestow it upon us, says Christ).
Then Jesus came from Galilee to John to be baptised by him in the
3:14 But John tried to prevent him, saying, I need to be baptised by
you, and yet you come to me? So Jesus replied to him, Let it
happen now, for it is right for us to fulfill all righteousness. Then
John yielded to him. After Jesus was baptised, just as he was
coming up out of the water, the heavens opened and he saw the Spirit of
God descending like a dove and coming on him. And a voice from heaven
said, This is my one dear Son; in him, I take great delight.
don't read of multiple baptisms, but one, there is only one 'true'
If you had a fake one, where your parents took you to the baptism, then
it does not count as being baptised, for you need to repent, then
baptise - all through your own will.
a) - If anyone has persuaded or coerced
you to a place
and baptised you there or had you baptised by another, you are not
baptised. Why? Because you are called to
then baptise into the Church of Christ. As a very little
you could not even repent for your sins, for you did not understand the
matter and so you were not baptised.
b) - If you did not understand
the Gospel or did
not even read it before you baptised, or if you did not understand
'Repentance' and you then baptised (let us so call it) you
the act of going in to the water but you were not baptised, for you had
no understanding of: Faith (believing), Repentance, Baptism.
God can forgive you, for you were a fool or you were misled by
others. If now you understand and you can actually
repentance, then you are ready to baptise.
c) - If you were
baptised by any person who
did not put you under the water ( baptise) and then lifted you out of
the water again, you are not baptised either; for you are called to
'Repent' and 'baptise' in the name of Jesus Christ.
In any of the above cases, you can yet properly baptise and, this time,
as you really understand what you are doing, you will be baptised.
Surely, any Believer who has repented and has been baptised to become a
Christian can baptise a believer; for now they also are holy and 'can'
pass on the Holy Ghost to the newly born (unlike the ministers of men,
who, indeed also baptise). But here logic tells you that
believer or not, can baptise a believer; because it is the successful
process of Faith and Repentance that is required for a successful
baptism, not the faith of the executor.
Were you ever
baptised by a
filth (pedo minister etc.) who was not at all baptise, but did you have
no knowledge thereof, well, you are then still baptise, for you walked
in to the baptism by your own choice and, knowing God through his
dealings in the Bible, God will not blame you for it, for you did not
have the knowledge that the one baptizing you was a rogue: but you had
faith, you did repent, and thus you will be baptise.
One can be baptised in any water, anywhere and at any time.
This because it is only written to baptise in water.
One must be baptised in the name of Jesus Christ, as it is written and
has been done in the days of Jesus - remember that the
have no chance with God.
The quote: the son is like the father, where Jesus explains
he is like God, can be compared to the authority of a Deputy Judge
compared to that of a judge: to us, both have equal power,
one is the greater power.
If you believe that you were baptised incorrectly, then do it again.
Either you were baptised the first time and thus the second time
changed nothing at all, or the second time you will be baptised for
not be baptised as when a child was brought to Jesus he did not baptise
them, as it would surely contradict his doctrine, but he
them: see Matt.18:3-4.
Children are as we should become, after the Baptism - so why
baptise them? The Holy among us should Bless Them, as Jesus
Many Christians pointed at this, so then the churches invented the
name 'Christening' to fool those who are not at all called by
but by man, to bind as many fools as soon as possible to
church. Paedobaptism is not from Christ, but a fraud.
Be ye children of your God and not the children on men!
But when this man (Jesus) had offered for all time
one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God.
( That sacrifice is 'Baptism') for, because he brought us the Gospel,
of which the very heart is the Baptism of Repentance, he was crucified:
for he came because we have sinned, starting with Eve!
If we deliberately keep on sinning after we have received the knowledge
of the truth (Baptism after repentance), no sacrifice for sins is
left...and so we shall just burn after our resurrection.
The only forgiveness after baptism is the forgiveness for accidental
transgressions (which are not sins) - not fornication! but
like sudden waves of unjustifiable hatred (hate for evil is justifiable
as we must hate evil to love good), thoughtless deceit, accidental lies
told to the harm of others, accidental, thoughtless theft
Our merciful God tells us how to find forgiveness for these
Sacrifice to God is a contrite heart! We read this clearly
is perfect! He only can see if you regret your deed, for then
your heart is contrite and he shall forgive you!
51:17 The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a
broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise.
Remember the mourning of
the people of Nineveh,
in the story of Jonah? God tells Jonah to tell them that within 40 days
the city would be destroyed, for they sinned against God (but mind,
there was no baptism of repentance then). They mourned and
were spared God's wrath, for their grieve was very real; and only God
could see it.
SOME BAPTISMAL QUOTES FROM THE
MAT 26: 28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which
is shed for many for the remission of sins.
(Cliff: Jesus tells you that to remember that he was nailed to the
cross and stabbed for what he has brought us: Faith, Repentance and
Baptism = Salvation: the result of a successful Baptism ritual)
