Sensitizing U: About our Faith
We, the Inward Jew Nation in Christ (Guyana, South America) believe in a single (Monos) God, the Father of all and Most High God, who is a divine Spirit. [John 4:23-24] Yahweh changes not…. [Malachi 3:6] Again, “God is not a man, that He should lie; neither the son of man that He should repent.” [Numbers 23:18-19]
The religious beliefs and practices and the way of life of the Inward Jew Nation in Christ, Guyana, South America is known by us as In-Jewism. We are a nation in Christ. [1 Peter 2:9-10]
INJEWISM: was coined from the term “Jew inwardly”+ism. (Romans 2:29) And our belief in a single God (Monotheism) is also characteristic of InJewism. The monotheism that characterizes InJewism, with origin in Guyana South America, is our recognition and acceptance of Yahweh our Creator of the Universe as the single object of worship: and “though there be that are called gods, to us there is but One God, the Father, for whom we live and serve, through Christ His Son. [Deuteronomy 6:4-9; 1 Corinthians 8:5-6
We believe and practice water baptism by immersion, and in the name of Jesus Christ.” [Acts 2: 38, 10: 44-48, 19:1-6]
Moment of Inward Change Coffee/Juice Break Chat
Beloved Readers, I bring you warm Redeeming Luv Greetings with peace and hope, in Christ. May Yahweh minister to all your needs through Christ our Lord. I am not sure what your time of day might be, but I invite you to share a moment with us together at this Twenty Sevefth Moment of Inward Change Coffee/Juice Chat.
Let us continue to pray for Haiti, St. Lucia, Bahamas and Florida and the countries that were hit with natural disasters in 2016 so far, as well as, the survivers of the deceased families, and for the improvement of the conditions under which they now live etc.
Beloved, this is an entirely new approach to my outreach program, so welcome to our Twenty Seventh Moment of Inward Change Coffee/Juice Chat. Please reach for your Bible (Sword) and your preference drink, and let’s take some sips before we get the ball rolling and the rest is left to you. … … Ok, here we go.
My Scripture Texts:
“All power is given unto me in heaven and on earth. Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” [Matthew 28:19-20]
“Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but He that believeth not shall be dammed….” [Mark 16:15-16]
And He said unto them, “These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the Psalms, concerning me.” ‘Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures, and he said unto them,’ “Thus it is written, and thus it behoved the Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye are the witnesses of these things. And behold, I send the promise of my Father upon: but tarry in the City of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on High. [Luke 24:45-48]
With an opened mind and with the understanding
Beloved, I present to us the above mentioned scriptures from the Books of: Matthew, Mark and Luke, and I pray that Almighty God through Christ His son, opens our understanding that we might understand the scriptures, even as we humble ourselves in His presence now, and let the Holy Spirit guide us through our Chat on, “After having opened their understanding, that they might understand the Scriptures, … the ascended Christ revealed to His Apostles that as many that were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized, and thus “buried with Him by baptism into His death: for if we were planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection.” [Romans 6:3-5]
Beloved, the three-prong technique the Apostles of the first century used to “turn the world upside down” [Acts 17:6] ― was Preaching, Teaching and Witnessing. [Mark 13:10; Acts 5:24, Acts 1:8, 5:42] Matthew, Mark and Luke among others were eye witnesses of these things: the suffering of Christ, Christ’s resurrection from the dead the third day (after the full 72 hours), [Luke 24:45-48] and His ascension into heaven after his forty days post resurrection ministry with them, just to mention a few. [Acts 1: 9-11, Acts 1:1-3] As a result, even though these three eyewitnesses would have seen and written things from different angles, yet a clear understanding existed among them concerning what the Resurrected Jesus the Christ said to them about making Disciples of all nations. His commission is as follows:
“Go ye therefore and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” [Matthew 28:19-20]
““Go ye into all the world, and preach the Gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved, but He that believeth not shall be dammed….” [Mark 16:15-16]
“Thus it is written, and thus it behoved the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And ye shall be witnesses of these things.” [Luke 24:45-4]
Beloved, It is noteworthy that unlike Luke who was an eyewitness too, Matthew and Mark both mentioned about “Baptism,” but it was only Matthew, who specified the procedure of it.
Beloved, the resurrected Christ, during His forty days ministry with His Disciples spoke of things pertaining to the kingdom of God: and also while still with them He commanded them not to depart from Jerusalem, but wait for the promise of the Father …. For John truly baptize with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.” [Acts 1:3-5]
Some declarations of Jesus the Christ about the Holy Spirit
“If ye love me keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another comforter, that He may abide with you for ever; even the spirit, whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, neither knoweth Him: but ye know Him; for He dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” [John 14:15-17]
“These things have I spoken unto you, being present with you. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, 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 14:25-26]
“But when the comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, He shall testify of me.” [John 14:26]
“I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is come, He will guide you into all truth: for He shall not speak of Himself, but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak: and will show you things to come. He will glorify me: for He shall receive of mine, and shall show it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that He shall take of mine, and shall show it unto you.” [John 16:12-15]
The resurrected Christ’s Ascension
Beloved, the resurrected Christ, during His final assembly and fellowship with His Disciples appearance with His disciples prior to His ascension, led His Disciples out as far as Bethany, and He lifted up His hands, and blessed them. And it came to pass while He blessed them; He was parted from them, and carried up into heaven.” [Luke 24:50-51] Let us give Yahweh glory and praise! Amen.
Beloved, one in his/her carnal mind would have thought that after the resurrected Christ would have ascended that He would not have continued to give commandments to His Chosen Apostles, but he did through the Holy Ghost, according to the pure Word of God.
Christ still gives commandments to His Followers through the Word by the Holy Spirit!
Beloved, even in the Twenty First Century today and beyond, Yahweh and Christ are still and will still be the same yesterday, today and for ever. Let us give Yahweh praise through His Christ His Son. Amen. Hallelujah!!!
Today, Christ commission His followers, through the Word, and as we obey the Word from the heart and yield ourselves to the leading of the Holy Ghost, He will convict us and lead us to be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, and to baptize others, according to Acts 2:38. There is no doubt about this.
What Baptism in the name of Jesus Christ means to the believer!
Baptism “in the name of Jesus Christ” which was performed continuously by the Apostles whom Christ had chosen [Acts: 2: 38] guarantee the purpose of the act. And a purpose is that it is done for the remission of sins ― after which the believer shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
According to the scriptures,” it behoved Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day: and that repentance of sins should be preached in His name among all nations ….”[Luke 24: 46-47] Therefore to be baptized by immersion “in the name of Jesus” is a meaningful act of faith that is symbolic of the believer’s death, burial and resurrection with Christ. Further, the believer’s faith in the Word, “In that He died, He died unto sin once: but in that He liveth, He liveth unto God” [Romans 6:10] motivates Him to keep on yielding himself to the Holy Spirit’s leading whereby at some point he/she will experience the resurrection and subsequently the abundant life in Christ. [John 10:10]
Seven (7) biblical reasons why you should demand, that you be baptized “in the name of Jesus Christ!”
- Unlike baptism in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, which was never ever recorded in the scriptures as being performed by the Apostles: baptism “in the name of Jesus Christ” was continually performed by the Apostles, and it became a norm in the first century Church
- Baptism “in the name of Jesus Christ” was not only a practice of the day, but also an ordinance which the Apostles taught and encouraged in the first century Church [Acts 2: 38, 8:16, 10: 48, 19:5]
- Baptism “in the name of Jesus Christ” has a specific, or defined purpose and promise i.e. (a) “for the remission of sins, and (b) ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost [Acts 2:38]
- Baptism “in the name of Jesus Christ” ensures the believer (1) that he is baptized into Jesus’ death, (2) that he is buried with Jesus Christ by baptism unto death, (3) that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in the newness of life [Romans 6: 3-4]
- Baptism “in the name of Jesus Christ” gives believers the confidence that if we have been planted together in the likeness of His death, we shall be also in the likeness of His resurrection [Romans 6:5]
- Baptism “in the name of Jesus Christ” ensures that the believer in Christ is buried with Him in baptism, wherein also he/she is risen with Him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised Him from the dead.” [Colossians 2:12] And you the baptized Believer, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses [Colossians 2:13], and
- Baptism “in the name of Jesus Christ” was the last and continuing command of the crucified, risen and ascended Jesus the Christ…. [Acts 1: 2, Acts 2:38, 2: 41-42]
