Jesus at His baptism comes as High Priest to the kingdom of priests nation of Israel: (Ex. 19:6)
(Isa. 61:6) "But you shall be named the priests of the LORD,..."
I Pet. 1:1 "an apostle of Jesus Christ, to the Pilgrims of the Dispersion..."
I Pet. 2:9,12 "But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation,

When priests were ordained, rituals were to be followed, including washing with water (Ex. 29:4). That washing was performed at Jesus' baptism.

Numb. 4 require those who serve in the tabernacle to be 30 years old: Vs. 3,23,30,35,39,43,47.
Heb Chapt 3 through 10 and Psalm 110:4 God designated His own Son the Perfect High Priest according to the order of Melchizedek.

Mat 3:11 "I baptize you with water for repentance,

...was for a little more than introduction, it was for comparison...

but he who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire."

Mat 1:20...for that which is conceived in her is from the Holy Spirit.
Mat 1:21 She will bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins."
Mat 1:22 All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had spoken by the prophet:
Mat 1:23 "Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel" (which means, God with us).

Some say Matt 3:15 implies water baptism identified Jesus with mankind. That was accomplished in Bethlehem. Luke 2:41-52 Jesus, age 12, under the Law of the Passover Feast, was conversing with teachers. He had enough understanding at 12 yrs old to be baptized, if baptism was a public testimony. Jesus gave the reason He was being baptized
Matt. 3:15, "...Permit it to be so now for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." In accordance with the Law dispensed to Moses, Jesus was thirty when He was baptized, Luke 3:23 "..And when He began His ministry Jesus Himself was about 30 years of age." (Maybe those who insist we should "follow Jesus in Baptism" should also require the person to be 30 today

John baptised to introduce the one who takes away our sin, the Messiah or as he called him the lamb of God.

You recieve the holy spirit upon faith.
Acts 10:44-48 (King James Version)

44While Peter yet spake these words, the Holy Ghost fell on all them which heard the word.

45And 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.

46For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,

47Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?

48And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.

Faith saves, baptism is an act of obedience out of love.

John the Baptist baptised several for the remission of sin
---michael_e on 8/10/10

be very careful of what you say!!! There is no other worked needed for salvation other then the blood of Jesus!! Please everyone read the whole book of galatians!!!! We cant and will not be ssaved through anything else but Christ!!!! And if not then why did he die!?? When you read the bible you have to read it for what is says nothing more or nothing less!!!!!
---Jerell_thompson on 8/10/10

Yes Sandra it does take faith. With other faith scriptures including Mark 16 v 16, Acts 2 v's 37 - 41 which Fulfills Matt.28 v's 19 - 20.
Living a clean & Holy life before God. Matt.24 v 13. You wont make it in without it.

The Man - made trin relig - org's churches Try to use faith scriptures alone for their salvation plans, & it will Not work, because they are Trying to steal their way into heaven. John 10 v 1.

Thank God it will Not be so.
---Lawrence on 7/23/10

One is saved by faith in Jesus alone. Baptism does not save. But it is a wonderful picture of death to the old sin nature and raising to a new life in Jesus. I believe people should be baptised by immersion whenever possible.
---Sandra on 9/9/09

Wow! That is so wrong.

We have been saved not by works but by grace, through faith, and this not of ourselves it is the gift of God -- that no man may boast!

Baptism is an act of obedience -- nothing more and nothing less. It is NOT for salvation and NOT for the remissions of sin. To say such a thing is heresy against the fully sufficient work of Jesus Christ who shed His Holy blood to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

Baptism is important. It is obeying God's command and symbolizes so much. But we must not raise this beautiful act of faith and obedience to the level of an idol that we claim is equal to God Himself.

To be saved, one needs to, first of all, hear the Gospel(Romans 10:17). Secondly, he must believe(Mark 16:15-16). Next he must repent of his sins(Acts 2:38). He must then confess that Jesus, is the Christ, the Son of God(Acts 8:36-37). Then he must be baptized(Acts 2:38). The Lord will then add him to His church(Acts 2:47,see King James Version). Finally he must continue to live a faithful life to Jesus.

James, baptism, not baptistism oops
---Kella3336 on 11/2/07

Yes James, I agree that baptistism is an act of obedience. I thought that I should have written that after I posted it.Obedience to to Jesus in baptism is a act of faith. I do love the Lord. A good verse to read is Colossians 2:11,12 . God bless
---Kella3336 on 10/31/07

I thought all Christian baptisms were for the remission of sins and so much more. Even the Jews baptise for this, although their version is not proper to the New Covenant and does not do the rest of what ours does.
---lorra8574 on 10/31/07

Christ always gives us the CHOICE to believe and to repent. It's never forced. However, on the Day of Pentecost, the new believers asked what they needed to do and Peter told them. If you claim to believe then it is no longer an "option". You MUST repent and be baptized and then you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. When did Christ receive the Holy Spirit? AFTER he was baptized. (Mat 3:16, Mark 1:10). Why did Christ need to be baptized? "to fulfill all righteousness" (Mat 3:15)

No one has ever said that "baptism alone" saves. You must hear the word. You must believe the word. You must repent and you must be baptized. Believing and repenting are acts of faith. Baptism is NOT an act of faith. It is an act of OBEDIENCE.
---James on 10/31/07

I do not believe that baptism on it's own saves but it is an important part in the salvation process, an act of faith after hearing the message, believing it, repenting,and confessing Jesus as Saviour. And I believe we are to continue to walk with the Lord to the end. with love kella
---Kella3336 on 10/31/07

Jesus saved us 2000 years ago when He was conceived by the Holy Ghost, born of the Virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried, He descended into hell, rose again on the third day, and ascended into heaven. Salvation from sin, death, and the devil was given to me personally on March 8, 1964 at my baptism.

catherine does not agree with St. Peter "Baptism now saves you" or St. Mark "He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved" or St Paul's testimony "Now why do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name".

Two things wrong with your statement. First, the Greek word "eis" does NOT contain the words "because or because of" anywhere in the definition. Second of all, read Matthew 26:28- "This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins." These are the EXACT same words as used in Acts 2:38. SURELY you are not implying that Christ told his disciples he was going to the cross because our sins were ALREADY forgiven.
---James on 10/29/07

Is anyone better than perfect Christ: and was Christ Jesus baptized. Baptism is God's Command, and it is up to each person whether they will obey or disobey. But know this person, no disobedience will enter into heaven.
---Eloy on 10/29/07

Kella quoted John 3:5. It shows both water and spiritual baptism are necessary. It is not an "either - or". I do agree that water baptism is merely a symbol of what we commit to do and what God is doing with us. But, God has often required symbolic acts for real benefits. The old testament was full of this. The Lord's sacrament (breaking bread and the cup of wine) were symbolic. Christ's washing of the disciple's feet was symbolic. Being symbolic doesn't automatically make it unnecessary.

John 3:5 is clear

Krause, yes Acts 2:38 is the verse.
---Kella3336 on 10/26/07

When you do it in your heart > when you truly repent > you have already done in your heart what you need to do to be forgiven. So, why would a tub of water be necessary, for what the Holy Ghost has already worked in your heart? In His name can mean in His authority IN His love making us pleasing and accepted with our Father (o: You need to already be in this before you go in the water, and this makes you ALREADY forgiven ((o:

No! Baptising cannot do anything about your sins. Baptising cannot forgive you of your sins. You need to plead the Blood of Christ for that, My friend! ++
---catherine on 10/23/07

Kella, (2)

Notice the word "for" in v38. Now read the following sentence.
"Jessy James is wanted for robbery." The word "for" (Greek: Eis) meaning "because, or because of".

We are baptized because our sins have been remitted by the shed blood of Jesus Christ.

In Christian Love,

Amen. When I was baptized, I was baptized "for the remission of sins".

Acts 2:38 "...Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins,..."
Remember that Peter is speaking to "born again" Jews.
---trey on 10/23/07

are you refering to Acts 2:38 which also seems to imply that the blood is applied at baptism. getting forgiveness is one thing but washing the stain clean is another. the main reason i was baptised was to wash my sins away calling on the name of the Lord Jesus. so i was also baptized in Jesus name.
---Kraus on 10/23/07

When I was baptised, I already KNEW I was forgiven, and I still am forgiven. I was forgiven at calvary.
---duane on 10/22/07

I was baptized because that was my desire. Not everyone that gets saved, has a desire to get baptized. I think one should get baptized after getting saved, but that is between them and God.

When I was baptized, I asked for remission of sins, but also acknowledged the Lord Jesus Christ and denounced Satan. By joining the body of Christ, we can turn to our Lord and ask for forgiveness of sins.

Matthew 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance, but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Gost, and with Fire. *****On all occasions CONFESSION OF SINS was required and was made before Baptism. THIS IS NOT ESSENTIAL TO SALVATION: 1st Coritnthians 1:13-7. faith in the BLOOD OF CHRIST..... brings remission of sins Romans 3:24-25
