I WAS BAPTIZED YEARS AGO, DOES THAT MEAN THAT I AM SAVED?

I WAS BAPTIZED YEARS AGO, DOES THAT
MEAN THAT I AM SAVED?

Jesus is very clear in Mark 16:15-18  And he said unto them, 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 damned.  And these signs shall follow THEM THAT BELIEVE; IN MY NAME shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. 

Some would say, well that settles it; I was baptized and I believe, I am saved and going to heaven.  Is that really the case though? Let’s examine the scriptures to find out. 

How were you baptized?  If you were baptized according to 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, then we really need to understand that even though Jesus Christ Himself spoke these words, He was speaking in a parable. 

Jesus said,  baptizing them in the name, the one single name, the name of the Father, and the name of the Son, and the name of the Holy Ghost.  Jesus DID NOT say to baptize in the TITLES of the name; BUT IN THE ONE SINGLE NAME of the Father,  THE ONE SINGLE NAME of the Son and THE ONE SINGLE NAME of the Holy Ghost.  That one NAME IS JESUS CHRIST. 

We already know that the Son’s name is Jesus.
John 5:43a  “I am come in My Father’s nameHis Father’s Name is Jesus.
John 14:26a But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in My name  The Holy Ghost’s Name is Jesus.
Therefore one would have to conclude that since there is one name to be baptized into, that name would be Jesus Christ, according to scripture. 

1 John 5:7  For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and “these three are one To be clear, we just read that the Father, the Word {the Son Jesus} and the Holy Ghost ARE ONE.  It would only make sense that there would be ONE NAME for ALL three titles.
The Word” is Jesus Christ according to scripture…
1) John 1:1c “and the Word was God
2) John 1:14a  And “the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us” 
3) Revelation 19:13b “and His name is called The Word of God” 

Another reference is that Jesus said in John 10:30 “I and my Father are one.  

There is ONLY ONE NAME above EVERY NAME…  Philippians 2:10-11 That at
the name of Jesus” every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;  And that every tongue should confess that “Jesus Christ is Lord” , to the glory of God the Father. 

Romans 14:11 For it is written, As I live, saith “the Lord“, every knee shall bow to Me, and every tongue shall confess to GodJesus is God. John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and “the Word was God“.  We already showed you that Jesus Christ is, “the Word of God“.  

Back to Baptism… 

Ephesians 4:4-6  There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, ONE BAPTISM, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. 

We just read in the Written Word of God that there is ONE BAPTISM, Ephesians 4:5  One Lord, one faith, ONE BAPTISM

What is that ONE baptism? 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.  Acts 2:41a Then they that gladly received His word were baptized.  

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 JesusActs 19:5 "When they heard this, THEY WERE BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS".

They clearly understood the necessity of being BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF THE LORD JESUS, even though they had already been baptized by John the Baptist!!! Acts 1:5 For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence. 

Romans 6:3-4  Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His death? 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. 

Galatians 3:27 For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ

WHEN ONE IS BAPTIZED IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND THE SON AND THE HOLY GHOST, THERE IS NO NAME USED, ONLY TITLES!!!  THEREFORE YOU ARE NOT BAPTIZED INTO JESUS CHRIST!!!  YOU ARE BAPTIZED INTO RELIGION!!!

  • Acts 2:38  “be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ”
  • Acts 8:16   “they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus”
  • Acts 10:48  “he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord
  • Acts 19:5   “they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus” 
  • Acts 8:12   “the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized
  • Romans 6:3  “were baptized into Jesus Christ

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. 

1 Corinthians 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.

It’s all about the Name of Jesus!

Colossians 3:17  And “whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him. 

  • Matthew 1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call “His name JESUS“: for “He shall save His people” from their sins.
  • John 20:31  But these are written, that ye might “believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that “believing ye might have life through His Name
  • Matthew 12:21  And “in His name shall the Gentiles trust. 
  • John 1:12  But as many as received Him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to “them that believe on His name.
  • John 2:23   Now when He was in Jerusalem at the passover, in the feast day, many “believed in His name, when they saw the miracles which He did.
  • Acts 3:16  And “His name” “through faith in His name hath made this man strong, whom ye see and know: yea, the faith which is by Him hath given him this perfect soundness in the presence of you all. {“Jesus’ name has healed this man—and you know how lame he was before. Faith in Jesus’ name—faith given us from God—has caused this perfect healing.}

Ephesians 5:20  Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

James 4:8 Draw nigh to God, and he will draw nigh to you. Cleanse your hands, ye sinners; and purify your hearts, ye double minded.

Hebrews 3:15 While it is said, To day if ye will hear his voice, harden not your hearts, as in the provocation.   

We know that this will open the eyes of those chosen by Jesus Christ before the foundation of the world.
