WATER BAPTISM IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST
NEVER was anybody in the entire pages of the
Bible, was ever baptized in the TITLES of Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Look up for it, and
youll never find one. Jesus never said to baptize in the NAMES, but in the N-A-M-E,
singular. It takes a revelation from God to know this commandment.
JESUS taught that "REPENTANCE and REMISSION of sins should be preached IN HIS NAME, beginning at Jerusalem, to the uttermost parts of the world" (Luke 24:47)."He that believeth and is BAPTIZED shall be saved" (Mark 16:16).
The apostles knew what most religious leaders today failed to recognize. First: that the NAME of the Lord Jesus Christ is the FAMILY NAME of all Christians both in heaven and on earth (Read Eph.3:15). And that there is NO OTHER NAME under heaven whereby we must be SAVED only in the Name of JESUS (Acts 4:12). Second: that the FULLNESS of the Godhead dwelleth BODILY in CHRIST (Col. 2:9). And third: that BAPTISM must be performed in the NAME of the CRUCIFIED (Read 1 Cor. 1:13). The Bible tells us plainly that "Whatever you do in word or in DEED, do all in the NAME of the LORD JESUS CHRIST" (Col. 3:17).
PETER, having the keys to the Kingdom, obeyed Jesus and said to the JEWS, "REPENT everyone of you and BE BAPTIZED in the NAME OF JESUS CHRIST for the remission of sins" (Acts 2:38) "and you shall receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit."
PAUL, the apostle of Jesus Christ, REBAPTIZED the disciples of John the Baptist in the same manner saying, "Have ye received the Holy Ghost SINCE you believed? They said, We know not whether there be any Holy Ghost. Paul said, "How was you baptized?" They said, Weve been baptized unto John. Then said Paul, "John verily baptized with baptism of repentance, saying to the people that they should believe on HIM that should come after him, that is ON CHRIST JESUS." WHEN THEY HEARD THIS, they were baptized in the NAME of the LORD JESUS" (Acts 19:1-5).
PETER AND JOHN did the same to the SAMARITANS as well," And he commanded them to be BAPTIZED in the NAME of the LORD JESUS" (Acts 8:14-16).
The GENTILES were also baptized in the same way, in the house of Cornelius (Acts 10:46-48), "For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnified God. Then answered PETER, "Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? AND HE COMMANDED them to be BAPTIZED in the NAME of the LORD JESUS" (NIV). All persons in the Bible: Jew, Gentiles and Samaritans, were ALL baptized in the NAME of JESUS CHRIST.
WHAT ABOUT MATTHEWS 28:19?
The above Scriptures are not given to refute Matthew 28:19 where Jesus told the apostles to baptize in the NAME of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. They merely show HOW the command was interpreted and obeyed by the disciples in the entire Bible.
THREE TITLES TO ONLY ONE NAME
The apostles understood that it was not a LITERAL command, just as when Jesus said, "Except you eat My flesh and drink my blood, you have no life in you," would make cannibals and vampires out of us, if it be followed LITERALLY. It was revealed unto them WHO really was the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, and what the NAME really was.
Father, Son and Holy Ghost are THREE TITLES. Yet there is only ONE NAME. It was revealed unto the apostles that salvation alone goes in the NAME of JESUS CHRIST (Acts 4:12). The Bible teaches that there is NO salvation in any other name, title or places, ONLY in the NAME of JESUS CHRIST (Acts 4:12). Yet He is the "Rose of Sharon", "Lily of the Valley", "Morning Star", "Alpha and Omega" - HE IS ALL THESE THINGS, yet theres NO SALVATION in any of these titles; ONLY IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.
God has so many TITLES: "Our Righteousness", "Our Peace", "Ever-Present", "Our Father", "Our King", "Prince of Peace", "Son", and "Holy Ghost". BUT He has ONLY ONE HUMAN NAME, and that NAME is JESUS - by which Name every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess that He is King of kings and Lord of lords.
Everyone that is BAPTIZED with the TITLES of Father, Son and Holy Ghost is baptized in NO NAME AT ALL. They are TITLES like Minister, Reverend, Doctor, whatevermore, Father, Son, Daughter, Wife - TITLES. You may say it does not make a difference. Then put your TITLE on your check and not your NAME, and try whether the BANK would encash it - say, "I sign this check in the name of the Husband"... That just make sense as it would to disbelieve Gods Word when the revelation is laying right here before your eyes. That NAME is also the Password to heaven.
WERE ST. PETER AND ST. PAUL WRONG?
Both St. Peter and St. Paul BAPTIZED in the NAME of the LORD JESUS CHRIST all throughout the Bible. Were they misled? NEVER. For Peter holds the KEY to the Kingdom that, "Whatever he binds on earth shall be bound in heaven"; and Paul proclaimed that "though WE (that includes preachers, priests, evangelists, pastors) or an ANGEL from heaven preach any other gospel THAN THAT WHICH WE HAVE ALREADY PREACHED unto you, LET HIM BE ACCURSED" (Galatians 1:8). See?
They knew that JESUS CAME in the FATHERS NAME: "I am come in My Fathers Name, and ye receive Me not" (John 5:43). And they also knew that the Holy Ghost was the SPIRIT of JESUS CHRIST that would come in His Name (John 14:26).
DO NOT BE DECEIVED by false doctrines and man-made creeds. Do not let any church theology bind you from this true revelation. If you have not been baptized in the NAME of the LORD JESUS CHRIST, YOUR BAPTISM IS WRONG. You have to be REBAPTIZED AGAIN in order for you to receive the Spirit of God.
Acts 2:38 plainly states to, "REPENT, everyone of you, and BE BAPTIZED in the NAME of JESUS CHRIST for (What?) the REMISSION OF SINS - (You are still in your sins if you are not baptized in the NAME of the LORD JESUS CHRIST for no other Name is given whereby we must be saved) - "and you shall receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit".
And the word "BAPTIZE" (Greek Word "Baptizo") means to IMMERSE. For the first thirteen hundred years from the death of Christ, baptism was always performed by IMMERSION of the person UNDER WATER. "And they went both down INTO the WATER, both Philip and the Eunuch; and he baptized him" (Acts 8:39). "John also was baptizing at Aeneon because there was MUCH WATER there" (John 3:23). "They came up OUT OF THE WATER" (Acts 8:39).
GOD IS CALLING ON YOU TODAY, SINCERE CHRISTIAN, to be restored back to the original faith that was once delivered to the saints; as Romans 8:30 says, "Whom He did predestinate, them He also CALLED: and whom He called, then He also justified: and whom He justified, them He also glorified." If you are Gods predestinated seed, you will recognize this Message to be the Truth. And you will not wait long until you are baptized in the NAME of the LORD JESUS CHRIST. Get right with God now. "Obedience is better than sacrifice" (1 Samuel 15:22).
HISTORICAL FACTS AND RECORDS***

CANNY ENCYCLOPEDIA OF RELIGION - "The Early Church always baptized in the Name of the Lord Jesus until the development of the Trinity Doctrine in the 3rd Century." (Pp. 53).
