IT’S TIME TO GET YOUR HOUSE IN ORDER,
WE ARE IN THE LAST DAYS…
2 Timothy 3:1  This know also, that in the
last days perilous times shall come.

Matthew 24:4  And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.  Matthew 24:5  For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.  Matthew 24:6  And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Matthew 24:7  For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. Matthew 24:8  All these are the beginning of sorrows.

With all that is going on in the world today, it is evident that we are indeed in the last days before Jesus returns for His Bride, the True Church, the True Believers in Christ Jesus.  We need to be ready and get our houses in order. By this I mean you need to be Spiritually ready for the return of Jesus Christ, when He comes for His Bride.

How can I be sure that my house is in order?  How can I be sure that I am ready for His return, according to the “Word of God”? First, know this… the “Word of God” is our instruction book and example for ETERNAL SALVATION!!!

According to the Word of God, in order to be saved and ready for the return of Jesus Christ:

  1. We MUST Be chosen before the foundation of the world.
    Ephesians 1:4
      According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:  Ephesians 1:5  Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will, Ephesians 1:6  To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved.

  2. We MUST Hear the Gospel and Believe. Romans 10:14  How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?  Romans 10:15  And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!  Romans 10:16  But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report?  Romans 10:17  So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.

  3. We Must Believe in our Heart that Jesus died for our sin and was raised from the dead. Romans 10:9  That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.  Romans 10:10  For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:11  For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.

  4. We Must Repent and Be Baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ.
    Acts 2:38
      Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

It’s that simple!!!

Baptism in the Name of Jesus is a VERY IMPORTANT ROLE UNTO SALVATION!!! Look at the following verses. 1 Peter 3:18  For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: 1 Peter 3:19  By which also he went and preached unto the spirits in prison;   1 Peter 3:20  Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, EIGHT SOULS WERE SAVED BY WATER.  1 Peter 3:21  THE LIKE FIGURE WHEREUNTO EVEN BAPTISM DOTH ALSO NOW SAVE US (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ.  

Jesus clearly said in Mark 16:16a  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved.  Baptized how?  By water submersion, in the Name of Jesus Christ!!!  Remember, Jesus and the Apostles are our examples.

John the Baptist said in Matthew 3:11  I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but He that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: He {JESUS} shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:  Matthew 3:12  Whose fan is in His hand, and He will throughly purge His floor, and gather His wheat into the garner; but He will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

Matthew 3:13  Then cometh Jesus from Galilee to Jordan unto John, to be baptized of him.  Matthew 3:14  But John forbad him, saying, I have need to be baptized of thee, and comest thou to me?  Matthew 3:15   And Jesus answering said unto him, Suffer it to be so now: for thus it becometh us to fulfil all righteousness.Then he suffered Him.

Matthew 3:16  And Jesus, when He was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto Him, and He saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
Matthew 3:17  And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.  

So we can clearly see that Jesus was submersed under the water when He was Baptized by John, then, after Jesus came up out of the water, the Holy Spirit of God came upon Jesus.  It works the same with us when we are Baptized in the Name of Jesus. 

Now, remember in  Acts 2:38  when  Peter said “Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost“?   In this verse, we were given the correct formula for Baptism, however, just to be clear this DOES NOT contradict what Jesus said in Matthew 28:19  Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.

Look at this illustration to understand exactly what Jesus meant
 when He said baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and
of the Holy Ghost:

12270476_851103708322095_2050188808_n
The FATHER, The SON and The HOLY GHOST only have ONE NAME,
that NAME IS JESUS CHRIST.  

Look carefully AGAIN at this verse baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, it DOES NOT say names, it says NAME, ONE SINGULAR NAME, that ONE NAME IS JESUS CHRIST!!!  Acts 4:10  Be it known unto you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom ye crucified, whom God raised from the dead, even by him doth this man stand here before you whole.  Acts 4:11  This is the stone which was set at nought of you builders, which is become the head of the corner.  Acts 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

NOWHERE IN SCRIPTURE, WILL YOU EVER FIND ANYONE BEING BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER AND
THE SON AND THE HOLY GHOST!!!
THE APOSTLES CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD WHAT JESUS MEANT!!! 

  • Acts 8:12   But when they believed Philip preaching the things concerning the kingdom of God, and the Name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
  • Acts 8:16  For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
  • Acts 10:48   And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord
  • Acts 19:5  When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
  • Acts 22:16   And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord
  • Romans 6:3  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?  Romans 6:4  Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
  • 1 Corinthians 6:11b ... but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.

LOOK CLOSELY AT THE FOLLOWING VERSES, I want to point out that even though THESE BELIEVERS had already been baptized by John the Baptist, they we rebaptized in the Name of Jesus Christ, then they received the Holy Ghost.

Acts 19:2  He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.  Acts 19:3  And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John’s baptism.
Acts 19:4  Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on Him  which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.  Acts 19:5  When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Acts 19:6  And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

EVEN THOUGH THEY BELIEVED AND HAD ALREADY BEEN BAPTIZED BY JOHN THE BAPTIST, THE HOLY GHOST DID NOT COME UPON THEM UNTIL THEY HAD BEEN BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF JESUS!!!

The Word of God is clear!!!  We are to be Baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sin and WE SHALL RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY GHOST!!!  

One day, every single one of us WILL stand before the Judgement seat of Almighty God, what will be your excuse for NOT having been Baptized in the Name of Jesus?   Acts 5:29  Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, We ought to obey God rather than men.
