“Let all things be done decently and in order” (1 Corinthians 14:40 NKJV). No better example of this is found than Jesus’ statement:  “He who believes and is baptized will be saved” (Mark 16:16 NKJV). Baptism is into Jesus’ death. Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death?” (Romans 6:3 NKJV). Any salvation offered before baptism is without the blood of Jesus Christ on the cross. If not, why not? There is not one passage of Scripture where baptism and salvation/remission of sins are mentioned together that places salvation before baptism. If salvation comes to a sinner without being baptized into Jesus’ death in order to obtain remission of sins, then, as far as their “salvation” is concerned, “Christ died in vain” (Galatians 2:21 NKJV).

5-4-2015 Let’s Keep Jesus In Baptism

Why are people “dirty” when there is so much water on earth? Are they clean because they simply SAY they are clean? Isn’t it because they have not followed the principle of applying soap AND water?

Why are people still in their sins, even though they have SAID they were saved before they were washed in the blood of Jesus’ death? “Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life” (Romans 6:3-4 NKJV). Cleansing from sins is applying Jesus’ blood in baptism. Jesus’ blood is the soap of the soul, and water baptism is where it is applied.

Let’s Keep Jesus In Baptism!
