Mima - Read Ephesians 4:5 - this talks about the ONE baptism. There are really 4 baptisms (water, Holy Spirit, fire, and Jesus Christ (death)). God however is saying that the one baptism is of Jesus Christ, when we die to our old self, and then Holy Spirit baptises us into the body of Christ at salvation.

Leslie I suggest the following Scriptures speak of two baptisms.
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 Ghost, and with fire"
Mark 1:8,"I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost."
Luke 3:18,"16John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water, but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire" Could you be wrong?

Jesus baptized with the Holy Spirit and with Fire according to the Bible. This is because there is ONLY one baptisim according to the Bible - Jesus' baptisim is the ONE baptisim so we can be truly His.

Jesus gave the commandment to the Apostles to baptise people. Mark 16 v 16. It was on the day of Pentecost(Acts 2 v's 37-41 which Fulfills Matt. 28 v's 19-20, to the Jewish people First & then Apostle Paul brought This Very Same to us gentiles,Gal. 1 v's 8-9.
The trinity people deny this. They baptise in the tiles Father-Son & Holy spirit. There is no one found in the N-Testament scriptures of any one baptized that way. The man constantine the first r-catholic pope & the first trin-church started the titles baptism. The light that came to him to do such is,2nd. Cori. 11 v's 14-15.

I'm not doing this to attack you mima but you have a lot of false have to recieve the holy from the creator, jesus. you arent born with it..Acts 19:2-6 (King James Version)

2He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.

3And he said unto them, Unto what then were ye baptized? And they said, Unto John's baptism.

4Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
5When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. continue

continued Acts 19:6 (King James Version)

6And when Paul had laid his hands upon them, the Holy Ghost came on them, and they spake with tongues, and prophesied.

mima said something total different from what paul said. I'd listen to paul,john, peter, mathew,luke and ofcousre the lord jesus. a lot of people dont read the bible twist the words up, and the bible warns us of this happening. if that person helping you cant give you a scripture for your question, consider if false

Jesus baptized no one with water. Water bad to them was baptism unto repentance and was performed by John the Baptist and the disciples. Jesus baptism was with the Holy Ghost. As you can see there are two baptisms. Water baptism is symbolic of having accepted Jesus Christ. Holy Ghost baptism is a manifestation of an already indwelling Holy Spirit.
---mima on 9/7/07

one baptism is necissary it is the spirt, the water is not important at all because it is just a visible symbol of a spirital reality. (but hey i'm a quaker we dry clean)
---Jared on 11/12/06

Here is one of the wisest statements I have ever seen concerning baptism. It is defining, insightful and draws a clear line of demarcation between the two types of baptism.
"So there is one baptism to the outward man and one baptism to the inner man". This statement was made by a Baptist preacher called Brother Bob. The baptism to the outward man was John's baptism of repentance. The bad given to the inner man is the baptism of Holy Ghost and fire that comes from Jesus.
---mima on 3/29/06

Jesus himself did not baptize with water, but his disciples did. The reason is because baptism was done in his own name. Please read John 4:1,2; Matthew 28:19; Luke 24:47.
---Eloy on 3/29/06

I was not asking you For a defense of baptism in general. That that is the right thing to do is not in dispute.

My question is, what makes you think John the Baptist had any concept of a trinity that he would baptize "in the name of the Father Son and Holy Ghost?"
---Bruce5656 on 3/29/06

Sure Jesus told his disciples to do it that way but this was after he had revealed to them the Son who was obedient to the will of the Father who would send the Holy Ghost as the comforter.

Where do we see that John had any concept of this?
---Bruce5656 on 3/29/06

What is completely ignored here in discussions of baptism is that baptism was a long standing Jewish tradition. It did not originate with John or Jesus. Jesus did instruct his disciples to continue that tradition with His instruction found in Matt 28:19.
---Bruce5656 on 3/29/06

When Paul came to Ephesus, he found there disciples who had been baptized after Johns baptism yet they had not heard of the Holy Ghost. If John baptized in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, they would have heard of the Holy Ghost before Paul came to them.
---Bruce5656 on 3/29/06

Much is made of the fact that Jesus was baptized so we must be baptized. When Jesus talked about being baptized to fulfill all righteousness he was simply saying that he intended to conform to the customary practices that were expected of Him as a Jew. It was the righteous (ie the right religious) thing to do.
---Bruce5656 on 3/29/06

Jesus told John to baptise people in the name of the Father, the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Mt 28:19. Some haven't heard of the Holy Ghost as in Ac 19:2 but if you will read in Ac 10:47-48, plus Peter told them to be baptised, Ac 2:28, 18:8. Some have not heart of the Holy Ghost, and this is what it says in Acts 19:2.

What evidence do you have that John baptized "In the name of the Father, the Son and of the Holy Ghost?"

Notice in Acts 19:2, "He said unto them, Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed? And they said unto him, We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost." They had been baptized according to John's baptism and had not heard of the Holy Ghost.
---Bruce5656 on 3/14/06

John 4:2:
(Though Jesus himself baptized not, but his disciples,)

Mark 1:8 (See also Matt 3:11 and Luke 3:16.):
I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost.

Acts 1:5:
For John truly baptized with water; but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence.
---Jeffrey on 3/5/06

John 1:33 And I hnew him not: but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom thou shalt see the Spirit Descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.
---Ulrika on 3/5/06

Mima; no John baptised Jesus while saying "In the name of the Father, the Son and of the Holy Ghost, he didn't baptis Jesus in Jesus' name. Yes we do follow Jesus with his baptism as an example. Our flesh is crucified daily (should be), so by putting more of the word of God in us, we crucify the flesh.

It was of course impossible for John to have baptized Jesus unto repentance simply because Jesus had nothing to repent of. Okay now the question arises how did John baptized Jesus. Would he have baptized Jesus in Jesus name? Unlikely! Do we follow Jesus in baptism as an example? If so, when will we be crucified? All interesting questions.
---mima on 3/4/06

No, Jesus baptised people with the Holy Ghost and with fire, (evidence of speaking in tongues). John 4:1-2, Mt 3:11, Jn 1:33. Mima there is only one baptism Eph 4:5. and it wasn't symbolic. Water baptism is an outward and visible sign, Acts 8:36, 10:47.
---Rebecca_D on 3/3/06

John the baptist baptized UNTO repentance. He was preparing the way for Jesus. After Jesus death, burial, & resurrection salvation was made availiable by Romans 10:9-10. Baptism before His death was unto repentance. Baptism after His resurrection is an outward showing of the inside change. The period that John the baptist baptized in was still Old Testament. The New testament didn't start until Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection. O.T. was by the blood of goats and calves. N.T. is by the blood of Jesus.
---Rickey on 3/3/06

While it was physically possible for Jesus to baptise (with water), and He may have, it is not commonly recorded scripturally. Jesus was seen as a Rabbi or a prophet by most believers. It was the place of his apostle or a disciple to perform the water baptism which was a symbolic death, burial, & resurrection from carnality to spirituality. This meant being totally covered with water.

Jesus Christ baptizes with the Holy Spirit and with fire. It was John the Baptist's mission to baptize by water. That ended the baptism by water after Jesus was baptized by John the Baptist. John said, in effect, 'I am not going to.' Jesus said, 'Let it be so now for it behooves us to fulfill all righteousness.'
