HERE IS WHY WE MUST BE BAPTIZED IN THE
NAME OF THE FATHER, SON, AND HOLY Spirit
"Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit".
baptism banner The Bible commands water baptism for the New Testament church, and it is our responsibility to obey this teaching. One day each of us will account for our actions during our lives. Since we have God's Word, ignorance will not be an acceptable excuse on that day.
The Necessity of Water Baptism
Is water baptism a necessary part of the salvation experience of the New Testament? People have various ideas about water baptism, but we cannot always trust and to please God is to depend upon the Bible as our source of instruction.
Jesus gave us some insight as to the importance of water baptism in John 3:5: 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 God." Both the context of that statement and the subsequent practice of the New Testament church indicate that He was speaking of water baptism and the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
In Matthew 28:19, Jesus gave the apostles and us a direct command to go, teach, and baptize converts. Since He gave this command, baptism is important and necessary.
The Name of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit
Jesus instructed us to baptize "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit." In other words, He told us to baptize in the name (singular) that fully reveals God in His redemptive manifestations and work.
What is this name?
The name given to the Son of God was Jesus. "And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins" (Matthew 1:21).
Jesus was a genuine human being, born by the miraculous work of God's Spirit in the womb of a virgin, and thus He was literally the Son of God (Luke 1:35). He was more than a man, however; He was actually the one God manifested in the flesh (Colossians 2:9). He was the visible image of the invisible God (Colossians 1:15).
As such Jesus declared, "I am come in my Father's name, and ye receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him ye will receive" (John 5:43). In other words, the Father is made known to us by the name of Jesus. The Father, the one true invisible God, gave His name to the Son (the manifestation of God in flesh)l thus the Son received His name by inheritance (Hebrews 1:4).
The name Jesus literally means "Jehovah Savior." Jehovah was the unique name by which the one true God identified Himself to Israel in the Old Testament. The name Jesus describes the one God of the Old Testament coming in flesh to be our Savior. Thus the name of Jesus reveals both the Father and the Son.
What about the Holy Spirit? What name reveals God in His spiritual essence and action? Jesus said, "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you" (John 14:26). In other words, the Holy Spirit comes to us in the name of Jesus. The Holy Spirit does not come to us with a separate identity but is the Spirit of Jesus-Jesus Himself coming to dwell within us spiritually (John 14:16-18; Colossians 1:27).
In short, the supreme name that reveals God-the name by which we know the Father, Son and Holy Spirit-is Jesus. By invoking the name of Jesus, then, we fulfill the command of Matthew 28:19.
The Importance of the Name of Jesus
How can you say that Jesus asked them to baptize in the name of the three, when Peter, baptized only in Jesus' name?
Which bloody fool was right? Peter or Matthew. By the time Matthew's junk verse 28:19 came, people had already been baptized in Jesus' name.
The point is that Matthew is a liar & Matthew 28:19 is a rotten forgery.
