THREE BAPTISMS?

Posted on September 4, 2020 at 5:50 AM




                                                
  

Come, let us bow down in worship, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker; for He is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care. Today, if only you would hear his voice,                   Psalm 95:6-7 NIV


Oh my friends, I have learned a new lesson even at my great age!! (LOL) Have you been baptized? Did you know there are three important baptisms for us? This is the info that wowed me, and is encouraging me to decide to partake of this great new personal revelation: 

 

Rick Renner has an excellent teaching that brought this Word to me.

(https/www.youtube.com/watch?RKM_a1KZMk) 


Let's begin with Hebrews~

Hebrews 6:1-2  (NKJV)

The Peril of Not Progressing

6 Therefore, leaving the discussion of the elementary principles of Christ,( We must have the foundation of basic  Biblical Truths soundly within us, then we can)~ let us go on to perfection, not laying again the foundation of repentance from dead works and of faith toward God, 2 of the doctrine of BAPTISMS (plural) yet Eph 4:5 talks of one~

Ephesians 4:5 (NKJV)     "one Lord, one faith, one baptism;

This is not a conflict; as Ephesions is talking about the essential baptism for salvation: when one accepts Jesus as Lord and Savior. It is the primary baptism of salvation.

 

In early times “Baptism" meant:

to wash or to dip; to refashion an item of clothing one would dip it in a caldron of dye letting it soak up the new color, and when they pulled it out, it would be a totally different garment.

 In our baptism we are dipped (immersed in, cleansed by) the blood of Jesus, changed and made totally new, as we are placed into Christ

 


#1 OUR First Baptism is performed by the Holy Spirit ~ at the moment we choose Jesus as our Lord and Savior, the Holy Spirit immerses us into the Body of Christ, the person of Christ. This baptism is essential to salvation. We are totally cleansed!

 John 3

. . . Jesus answered him, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that unless a person is born again (anew, from above), he cannot ever see (know, be acquainted with, and experience) the kingdom of God. 

 John 3:16 (AMPC)

16 For God so greatly loved and dearly prized the world that He [even] gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, so that whoever believes in (trusts in, clings to, relies on) Him shall not perish (come to destruction, be lost) but have eternal (everlasting) life.

 

 The Word says, (2 Cor. 5:17)    “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new”

 

 Galatians 3:27 Living Bible (TLB)

27 and we who have been baptized into union with Christ are enveloped by Him.



#2 Our Second Baptism is performed by Jesus. We are baptized by Him into the power of the Holy Spirit. This one is not required for salvation, but it does give us spiritual power, which God wants us to have in order to keep moving forward in our spiritual walk.

 

Acts 1:5  (TLB)

5 “John baptized you with water,”[a] He reminded them, “but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit* in just a few days.”

 Acts 2:4 (TLB)   4 And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in languages they didn’t know,[a] for the Holy Spirit gave them this ability.

 

Acts 8:15-17 As soon as they arrived, they began praying for these new Christians to receive the Holy Spirit, 16 for as yet He had not come upon any of them. For they had only been baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 17 Then Peter and John laid their hands upon these believers, and they received the Holy Spirit.

 

Acts 10:44-45(TLB)         44 Even as Peter was saying these things, the Holy Spirit fell upon all those listening! 45 The Jews who came with Peter were amazed that the gift of the Holy Spirit would be given to Gentiles too!

 

Acts 19:5-6  (TLB)       5 As soon as they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. 6 Then, when Paul laid his hands upon their heads, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in other languages and prophesied.

Ephesians 6:10 Now my beloved ones, I have saved these most important truths for last:   Be supernaturally infused with strength through your life-union with the Lord Jesus. Stand victorious with the force of his explosive power flowing in and through you.

 This baptism gives spiritual power.

 


#3 Third Baptism is performed by believers and water is the medium.

Here we bury the old man!

 

The Word says, “If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things have become new (2 Cor. 5:17)!”

 

Romans 6:3-4      For sin’s power over us was broken when we became Christians and were baptized to become a part of Jesus Christ;   through his death the power of your sinful nature was shattered. Do you see? Whatever has plagued you as a sin in your life can be shattered!! Allow Jesus to shatter that scourge!!

 

4 Your old sin-loving nature was buried with Him by baptism when He died; and when God the Father, with glorious power, brought Him back to life again, you were given his wonderful new life to enjoy. Our old evil nature is gone, and we are reborn with God's nature.

 5 For you have become a part of Him, and so you died with Him, so to speak, when He died;[a] and now you share His new life and shall rise as He did. 6 Your old evil desires were nailed to the cross with Him; that part of you that loves to sin was crushed and fatally wounded, so that your sin-loving body is no longer under sin’s control, no longer needs to be a slave to sin;

  9 Christ rose from the dead and will never die again. Death no longer has any power over him. 10 He died once for all to end sin’s power, but now he lives forever in unbroken fellowship with God. 11 So look upon your old sin nature as dead and unresponsive to sin, and instead be alive to God, alert to Him, through Jesus Christ our Lord. Our new God-nature is drawn to Him!

 

 John 3:5 (NIV)

 5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit.  This third baptism  obeys Christ command. Obedience is necessary to grow.


Yes, I was totally thrilled by this new knowledge. I mean don't you get excited when your eyes are opened to a powerful revelation? It is so logical!   Look:

#1 First Baptism  we choose to invite Jesus to be Lord of our life, our Savior. Immediately our sins are cleansed, and sin nature deleted. We are joined with Christ and His nature.

#2 Second Baptism ~ of the Holy Spirit Who comes to indwell us as our mentor, teacher, comforter, advisor and more to tenderly  guide us in our growth path making supernatural power available to us.

#3 Third Baptism is water baptism where the old man, (sin nature is buried forever) and we are raised up into our new nature, our new life. It is symbolic, but also a command of Jesus, so we are obeying Jesus when we choose to be water baptised.


Our new life is born! I am so exhilerated! Can you see that? LOL!

SEARCHING FOR A CLOSER WALK WITH GOD


                                        AWESOME GOD


 DIGGING DEEPER

Sometimes the terrible awesomeness of God hits me and sends me reeling into deep meditation. It always carries its reward of a new closeness with my God. It happened this morning. In the beginning I was distracted with my mind wandering here and yon. Then I ‘woke up’ and commanded it to return. God is so good! Holy Spirit began to lead me in prayer.

Sorry, my Lord. I come to our meeting this morning with scattered thoughts; help me, Lord, to rein them in. That You even desire to meet with me is so amazing! Deep breath. Moses asked God, “what shall I say when they ask 'Who sent me’?” You responded, “Say the Great I AM sent me.” You, God, are not hemmed in by time. For You there is no ‘was, will be’, there is only I AM. Before You I bow down my heart, my 'who I am' I submit to You; help me become who You created me to be.


Exodus 3:13-14 (AMP)

13 And Moses said to God, Behold, when I come to the Israelites and say to them, The God of your fathers has sent me to you, and they say to me, What is His name? What shall I say to them? 14 And God said to Moses, I Am Who I Am and What I Am, and I Will Be What I Will Be; and He said, You shall say this to the Israelites: I Am has sent me to you!

  • Footnotes: Exodus 3:15 To know the name of God is to witness the manifestation of those attributes and apprehend that character which the name denotes.

Can you feel the depth of that name? 'I AM' signifies so much ~ timelessness, absolute love, supreme power, unimaginable expansion ~ an incomprehensible being, totally surrounding. There simply are not words to express the grandness of Who our God is. HIS LOVE FOR US  S SO APPARENT IN HIS WORD!


Psalm 91:14 (AMP)

Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore will I deliver him; I will set him on high, because he knows and understands My name [has a personal knowledge of My mercy, love, and kindness—trusts and relies on Me, knowing I will never forsake him, no, never].

Isaiah 52:6 (AMP)

Therefore My people shall know what My name is and what it means; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks; behold, I Am!

Indeed my God! You are the great I AM! This measures so deep and so high and so wide. You revealed Your staggering magnificence to David, and it comes out here:


Psalm 139:1-10

O Lord, you have examined my heart

and know everything about me.

2 You know when I sit down or stand up.

You know my thoughts even when I’m far away.

Even when it’s my mind traveling on tangents.

3 You see me when I travel and when I rest at home.

You know everything I do.

4 You know what I am going to say

even before I say it, Lord.

5 You go before me and follow me.

You place your hand of blessing on my head.

6 Such knowledge is too wonderful for me,

too great for me to understand!

7 I can never escape from your Spirit!

I can never get away from your presence!

8 If I go up to heaven, you are there;

if I go down to the grave, you are there.

9 If I ride the wings of the morning,

if I dwell by the farthest oceans,

10 even there your hand will guide me,

and your strength will support me.

You are always with me. 

You will guide me.

You will always be my support. Your strength

upholds me, protects me, supports me.


Lord, You are so good! What a privilege to know You! Thank You that You continue to grow me closer to You. Thank You! I love being together with You, my Lord.
