Today's word is from Mark 16:16
He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe
will be condemned.
We are going to have a water baptism after church @Amazing Love this Sunday. Please invite friends and family to join us if they have not yet been water baptized.
If you have not been baptized yet or if you want to be re baptized, please come prepared to be baptized. Bring your bathing suit, a pair of shorts and a T-shirt. We will announce where the baptism will be held at church.
Believing in your heart and confessing Jesus with your mouth is the way a person gets born again, (Romans 10:9) so water baptism is not what gets you saved, but water baptism is a part of salvation.
Water baptism and the anointing on it seals your salvation. Believers who have not yet been water baptized often struggle with assurance of salvation, sin issues and inconsistency in their walk with the Lord. I believe that GRACE carries a new believer until he/she is baptized, but when they do get baptized, they will definitely notice a big difference!
Water baptism represents dying with Christ, being raised to a new life and then walking in resurrection Power. It does not only represent, baptism anoints a believer to die to the flesh, live in the Spirit and walk in resurrection power!
Here are some Scriptural facts regarding water baptism
Water Baptism is not a ritual.
Water Baptism is Spiritual.
Water Baptism releases Power into your life.
Water Baptism empowers us to walk in Newness of life.
Water Baptism removes guilt and cleanses the conscience.
1 Peter 3:21 (AMP) says, Baptism, which is a figure [of their deliverance], does now also save you [from inward questionings and fears], not by the removing of outward body filth [bathing], but by [providing you with] the answer of a good and clear conscience (inward cleanness and peace) before God [because you are demonstrating what you believe to be yours] through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
So we see that the anointing that is released when we get baptized saves us from inward questionings and fears and is the answer of a good and clear conscience (inward cleanness and peace) before God.
Galatians 3:27 says, â€œFor as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ,â€ so through Baptism, we put on Christ! Instead of putting on clothes, we clothe ourselves in Christ [the Anointed one and His Anointing!]
So after water baptism you should expect the level of the anointing to increase dramatically in your life!
Please feel free to forward this to friends, family or co-workers that you would like to invite to our church and water baptism on Sunday!
