WATER BAPTISM

Different unscriptural opinions on the doctrine of water baptism have plagued the supposed Christendom in this day but we must know that the scriptures hold the answer to every scriptural question. In this rotulus, I will speak expressly on water baptism seeking to address two things:

  1. Is water baptism crucial to salvation?
  2. How should water baptism be administered?

THE FISHERS AND THE HUNTERS

In the previous rotulus, we delved into the second phase of restoration for the Nation of Israel. It was noted that even though God brought Israel out of Egypt, He promised to bring them out from Babylon (The Land of The North) and from all lands He has driven them (this incorporates the lost ten tribes) back to the land of Israel. The theme, “God’s endtime dealings with Israel” is to walk Israel through history and convey by the scriptures, expectations for Israel in this end of time.

SECOND PHASE OF RESTORATION

In the previous rotulus, we delved into the second phase of dispersion for the Nation of Israel. It was noted that the Nation Israel rejected the Messiah and God cut them off the second time. The temple was destroyed under General Titus Vespasian and no christian died as they had all fled to Pella. The theme, “God’s endtime dealings with Israel” is to walk Israel through history and convey by the scriptures expectations for Israel in this end of time.

SECOND PHASE OF DISPERSION

In the previous rotulus, we delved into the first phase of restoration for the Nation of Israel. It was noted that the Nation Israel was divided before the dispersion and in history, only the Southern kingdom were restored, the Northern tribes were not restored. The theme, “God’s endtime dealings with Israel” is to walk Israel through history and convey by the scriptures expectations for Israel in this end of time.

ARE YOU STILL ROMAN CATHOLIC?

1. And I stood upon the sand of the sea, and saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, and upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy.
2. And the beast which I saw was like unto a leopard, and his feet were as the feet of a bear, and his mouth as the mouth of a lion: and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority.
3. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.
4. And they worshipped the dragon which gave power unto the beast: and they worshipped the beast, saying, Who is like unto the beast? who is able to make war with him?

—Revelation 13:1-4

There are certain terms we must understand in order to fully grasp the message being portrayed in this rotulus:

  • Beast: A “beast” in Bible prophecy represents a kingdom (Daniel 7:23)
  • Horn: A “horn” in Bible prophecy represents a king / kingdom (Daniel 8:21–22)

PLURALITY OF GOD

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.

—Genesis 1:1

How can the very first verse of the Bible be a case for assumption? The Hebrew word translated “God” is “Elohim” which is the plural of “Eloha“. Thus, one might assume plurality of gods; other verses from the same book of Genesis used to back up this claim are Genesis 1:26, Genesis 3:22, and Genesis 11:7 where the word “us” is used when God speaks.

However, we will look through the pages of scriptures to determine the true nature of God.

Is God One, Two, Three or Seven?

FIRST PHASE OF RESTORATION

In the previous rotulus, we delved into the dispersion of the Nation of Israel. Shalmaneser the Assyrian besieged the 10 Northern kingdoms while Nebuchadnezzar the Babylonian—the 2 Southern kingdoms. The theme, “God’s endtime dealings with Israel” is to walk Israel through history and convey by the scriptures’ expectations for Israel at this end of time.

God is the God of restoration. The psalmist said God should not cast off Israel forever (Psalms 44:23) and as such God restored Israel—though there is a yet another restoration to the Nation of Israel in the future.

FIRST PHASE OF DISPERSION

In the previous rotulus, we delved into the division of the Nation of Israel into 2—10 Northern kingdoms and 2 Southern kingdoms (Judah and Benjamin). The theme, “God’s endtime dealings with Israel” is to walk Israel through history and convey by the scriptures expectations for Israel in this end of time.

In fulfilment of His word, God dispersed the nation of Israel to other Nations for their disobedience and rebellion. We must understand that this dispersion was not a one-step process but occured in time, in history, and will still occur in near future.

COSTLY ASSUMPTIONS – PART 1

Supposing He Was With Them

42. And when he was twelve years old, they went up to Jerusalem after the custom of the feast.
43. And when they had fulfilled the days, as they returned, the child Jesus tarried behind in Jerusalem; and Joseph and his mother knew not of it.
44. But they, supposing him to have been in the company, went a day’s journey; and they sought him among their kinsfolk and acquaintance.
45. And when they found him not, they turned back again to Jerusalem, seeking him.
46. And it came to pass, that after three days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them, and asking them questions.

Luke 2:42-46
Blessed be the name of the Lord—for it is given unto us to know the mysteries of the kingdom (Matthew 13:11) hence we are not permitted to live by assumptions, especially of things pertaining to the Kingdom of Heaven. While not all assumptions are bad or costly, in this rotulus, we will be addressing some costly assumptions held by Christians. Remember, God is Light and in Him is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5). In King James’ version of the Holy Scriptures (KJV), the word “assumption” does not appear, however a substitute for the word is “supposing” and it appears seven times.

THE DIVISION

In the previous rotulus, we delved into the Nation Israel—running through the promise of God to Abraham, the establishment of the Nation Israel and the Israel-Arab connections. The theme, “God’s endtime dealings with Israel” is to walk Israel through history and convey by the scriptures expectations for Israel in this end of time.

And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten, the cankerworm, and the caterpiller, and the palmerworm, my great army which I sent among you.

—Joel 2:25

The people of Israel eventually got into the promise land yet Satan’s charade of attack was not yet over. This is because Satan knows the placement of Israel and the glory Israel has with God.
