[CENTER]WATER BAPTISM SAVES “JEWS” – THOSE WITH CIRCUMCISED HEART[/CENTER]

(Water) baptism, which corresponds to this, now saves you, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, (1 Peter 3:21).

Peter is saying, water baptism (for the forgiveness of sins-Acts 2:38) saves us.” This is because Peter was the Apostle to the “Circumcision,” those who practiced circumcision of the flesh according to the Mosaic Law before converting to live by the grace of GOD for their faith in Jesus Christ. Before converting to Christ, their heart was spiritually “circumcised” of the sins of the flesh by living in the Spirit as followers of the righteousness of the Mosaic Law. Those whose heart was “circumcised” of the sins of the flesh by living in the Spirit were called “Jews.” This is because circumcision is of the heart by the Spirit, not the circumcision of the flesh made with hands (Romans 2:28-29) according to the Mosaic Law. When the “righteous” (those whose heart was circumcised of the sins of the flesh to practice righteousness) were baptized with water they were forgiven of past sins, justified, saved, by being made alive together with the Spirit of Jesus Christ.

And if the righteous one is scarcely saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? (1 Peter 4:18).

…let no one deceive you.
He who does righteousness is righteous, even as that One is righteous (1 John 3:7).

Do you not know that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived; neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor abusers, nor homosexuals, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).

And if a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand (Mark 3:25).

For a time will be when they will not endure sound doctrine, but they will heap up teachers to themselves according to their own lusts, tickling the ear (2 Timothy 4:3).

The eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears open to their prayers. But the Lord's face is against those who do evil (1 Peter 3:12).

If a man also lies with mankind, as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be on them (Leviticus 20:13).


Which way America, righteousness or unrighteousness; into the Kingdom of GOD, or perdition?


In the name of the Lord Jesus,.........may GOD bless

Water baptism saves no one. It Does show other people the decision that has already been made in their heart. That they believe that Jesus Christ died on the cross and that He was buried and that He rose again the 3rd day. Thus, we have the person being baptized by immersion -- laid down in the body of water -- 'buried' -- and being taken back up Out of the water -- 'raised' to new life in Christ. It has no saving value. A testimony After the fact.

We were referring to Peter saying,....... (Water) BAPTISM, which corresponds to this, NOW SAVES YOU, not as a removal of dirt from the body but as an appeal to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ, (1 Peter 3:21).

Having past sins forgiven by being baptized with water clears/relieves our conscience of guilt, and,......
if a believer is just/righteous THEY ARE SAVED BY BEING MADE ALIVE TOGETHER WITH THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST,.........but

if they are still living in sin, they need to come to repentance by putting off the sins of the flesh to be saved (born of GOD) by being made alive together with the Spirit of Christ.
And for the fact that we believe, we can know we have Christ within us, but whether we are "alive" or
"dead in trespasses and sins" depends upon whether we have been cleansed of sin.
To be forgiven of "sins/trespasses" is not the same as being cleansed/purged of "unrighteousness/sin/iniquity."
GOD forgives us of sins/trespasses/transgressions,..........and, GOD cleanses us of sin/iniquity/unrighteousness to make us righteous/just to be born of GOD,.......and then continues to purify us of all sin/unrighteousness/iniquity by Christ being formed in us to make us holy when sanctified completely by anointing us with the Holy Spirit of GOD the Father to be a "son" and heir of GOD.

What we were initially trying to clarity is: some believers are told that if they accept Christ for the forgiveness of sins, THEY HAVE BEEN SAVED AND BORN OF GOD, which is not the case if they have not come to repentance. The fact is, if they have accepted Christ and believe in their heart GOD raised Him from the dead, THEY WILL BE SAVED, whether at that moment, or sometime in the future when GOD is satisfied THEY HAVE COME TO REPENTANCE by turning from the world and sin to practice righteousness, which is a matter of the heart which GOD sees.

By our saying, WATER BAPTISM SAVES "JEWS," we were trying to express, that because a "JEW" is someone whose heart has been circumcised of the flesh by the Spirit (Romans 2:28-29), they are saved by being made alive together with the Spirit of Christ within when forgiven of all trespasses by being baptized with water "in the name of Jesus Christ."

To be baptized with water for the forgiveness of sins "IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST,"...............
is not the same as being "BAPTIZED WITH THE SPIRIT INTO CHRIST JESUS AND HIS DEATH TO BE JUSTIFIED/BORN OF GOD/RISEN as a member in Christ Jesus.

May GOD bless,.......

The Jews know more about salvation message than we could ever know, I would think,, If the Jews are the ones that bought the Message to us , and discribe how we should live the "Christian lifestlye" and how we should we act.. But we are the ones that should follow them as they follow "Jesus Christ" for they are our example and we are not theirs! For they received the 1st fruit of "The Holy Sprit". before others had ever heard of such a thing. ]remember].

"Peter was a Jew, John was a Jew, Bartholomew was Jew,, James the Less, was a Jew, Matthew was a Jew, Andrew was a Jew, James son of Alphaeus was a Jew, Thaddeus was a Jew, Philip was a Jew and Judas son of James, and Judas Iscariot where all Jews, And after the "Days of Pentecost" thousands of Jews scattered through out the World carried The Gosple of Jesus Christ by the ways of "The Roman" road, "Roaring Seas" driven by persecution and fuel by beatings, death of famililies and fear of life. So if you would like to look at a "Christian" life stlyle, Let your eyes fall upon a Jew, If the Devil is not attacking you with full force because of your message: "you might not be a true christian' or one that is luke warm. So if you have the wounds of the cross and scarred with many wounds of the enemy and the Scorches of The Father with the calluses that has form on your knees!

You know what i am talking about. "For we count these wound,s, as banner of honor" so we take pleasure in recognizing those who has went before us, leaving us a example of a "true Pilgrimage of travel.

And some of our Jewish brothers and Sister in Christ Jesus are experiencing The Same powerful God that is in us the same and more powerful in them,


The West Bank, Gaza, Syria, Turkey, Palestine, and through out Asia, Russia, Croatia. Jews , that was scattered throughout the world by The Lord God Himself and still is doing it now! Carrrying "The Gospel Of Jesus Christ" But we and they are Few in numbers and narrow is "our path," and there are many on the broadway that are called by some "Nominal Christianity"! But these Jews, are proclaiming, in hidding, and dying, violent deaths, And believe this. , "The Nominal Christians" will not join this group! But they Love your group and would be honor to serve. The people that belongs to these churches, die violent deaths, and their children and families right beside them, Tortured, Many of times, their families betray's them!

True Christianity is not a "Ivory of ease" nor any form of " hedonism"! and a "island of Sweetie Days' and with "Red hearts" hanging down as "Coconut trees" and your arms that have diamonds and Rubies strap upon with Pandora's fastenets , and necks, lace and choke down with fading a way trinkets! These are nothing more than the Lust of The Flesh, and a adoration of "Relics" a form of elementary "Idolarty". that has "Summons" you and your admire's to come and fall down to worship and pay with the wave of obedience, even, in a form of a small credit card.

Jesus's Reign in the Millennium, inside the gate; will not have any "G String or "Bikini" attire lounging around the beach and absolutely "No" Skinny-dipping in the pool!:eyes: "but you may do, as you like, "Outside" of the Gate! for a Thousand years if you happen to live that long! And you may do as you like, you may rub who you like, you may kiss whom you like, you may take home who you like, You may rolled your eye at whom you like. you may divorce whom you like, you may remarry whom you like, and you may "do that", if you like to too! Can you imagine living as a Old man or woman for nearly a 1 thousand years. [ looking just like you look now].:eyes: But you will not get sick, because by coming unto the Trees that will heal the "nations" You will not need any "Blue Cross"! But you are not going to grow young either. This only the 'Millennium" era. The Finally Flight, and Destination, have not arrived yet!:p

But not in The "Holy City"!
bad things will not happen on a large scale."The New Jerusalem" We have a GOVERNOR and neither will the gates will be open unto you. You will be able to to as you like. you might even look for the "Word of God" but i am doubtful you will find it, or it maybe be hard to find.

How did i get way out here? Sorry Guys i left this place,

PS there is a reason i use "little i 's"


All Passengers, enjoy your Flight!
