Satan’s ministers prey upon the ignorant

November 25, 2010

Satan’s ministers prey upon those who lack knowledge and they use common misconseptions. Most of what false preachers will teach however is for the purpose of convincing people that they don’t really need to obey Acts 2:38 to be saved. The devil doesn’t care how much of the Bible you obey just as long as you don’t really become a Christian by obeying Acts 2:38. The more moral and holy and scholarly a false-christian is, the stronger the devil holds them by their pride. That is because in order to really become a Christian they would have to admit that they really aren’t one yet.

I have noticed ministers of Satan teaching that Acts 2:38 salvation is only for the Jews, but they are fishing for fools.

We can look at the account of the first Gentiles becoming Christian and clearly see that they spoke in other tongues just like the Apostles AND they were baptized in Jesus Name (the Apostles knew what the Name of the Lord is.)

Keep in mind that the trinity was not even invented until after the Apostles were gone. Even the encyclopedias admit that water baptism was originally administered in the Name of Jesus.

ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA, 11th Ed. Vol. 3 Page 365-366, “The baptismal formula was changed from the name of Jesus Christ to the words Father, Son, and Holy Ghost by the Catholic Church in the 2nd Century.” Vol. 3 Page 82 “Everywhere in the oldest sources it states that baptism took place in the Name of Jesus Christ.”

CANNEY ENCYCLOPEDIA OF RELIGION, Page 53 — “The early church always baptized in the Name of Lord Jesus until the development of the trinity doctrine in the 2nd Century.”

HASTINGS ENCYCLOPEDIA OF RELIGION, Vol. 2 pages 377-378-389, “The Christian baptism was administered using the Name of Jesus. The use of the trinitarian formula of any sort was not suggested in the early church history, baptism was always in the Name of the Lord Jesus, until the time of Justin Martyr when the trinity formula was used.” Hastings also said in Vol. 2 Page 377, commenting on Acts 2:38, “NAME was an ancient synonym for person. Payment was always made in the name of some person referring to ownership. Therefore one being baptized in Jesus Name became his personal property.” “Ye are Christ’s.” I Cor. 3:23.

Now let us examine the first Gentiles becoming Christians. Up until this time the Apostles did not realize that a Gentile could be saved.

Acts 10:44 ¶While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.
Acts 10:45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Acts 10:46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,
Acts 10:47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we? Acts 10:48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

Keep in mind that the New Testament had not yet been written and the commonly misunderstood Matt 28:19 had not yet been written. The Apostles that heard Jesus speak always baptized in Jesus Name because they knew the Name of their Lord.

When the minister of Satan tries to teach that Acts 2:38 was just for the Jews, now you know how to prove that the minister of Satan is a liar. Also we can see by verse 39 that Acts 2:38 is for all that God will call.

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 2:39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.
Acts 2:40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation.

Now please notice in this very next verse how many people were water baptized in Jesus Name on the birthday of the New Testament Church.

Acts 2:41 ¶Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls.

The minister of Satan is not your friend regardless of their great swelling claims or sugar coated lies or how good he/she/it can make you feel about yourself. Look at what God has promised for all who don’t obey Acts 2:38 regardless of their excuse:

2Thess 1:7 And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,
2Thess 1:8 In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:
2Thess 1:9 Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power;

There is nothing to respect or honor about any minister of Satan whether trinitarian, or JW or Mormon or whatever.

More real Christians need to be obeying Galatians 1:8 regarding trinity preachers.
