Christ’s death, our baptism

as were baptized into Jesus Christ
were baptized into his death?

by baptism into death:
that like as Christ was raised up from the dead
by the glory of the Father,
even so we also should walk in newness of life.

We are sinners—we

9 What then? are we better than they? No, in no wise:
for we have before proved both Jews and Gentiles,
that they are all under sin;
10 As it is written, There is none righteous, no, not one:
11 There is none that understandeth,
there is none that seeketh after God.
12 They are all gone out of the way,
they are together become unprofitable;
there is none that doeth good, no, not one.

4. What does the gospel say
about the blood of Christ & baptism?
8
I. Enter the Kingdom by the Blood & Baptism
A. Enter the Kingdom by Baptism
Born of water & the Spirit
9
Born of water & the Spirit
3 Jesus answered and said unto him,
Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born again,
he cannot see the kingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus saith unto him,
How can a man be born when he is old?
can he enter the second time into his mother's womb,
and be born?
5 Jesus answered,
Verily, verily, I say unto thee,
Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit,
he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
10
I. Enter the Kingdom by the Blood & Baptism
A. Enter the Kingdom by Baptism
Born of water = baptism
Born of the Spirit = the gospel brings
a penitent sinner to the water
Enter the kingdom = salvation
11
I. Enter the Kingdom by the Blood & Baptism
B. Enter the Kingdom by the Blood
Christ crucified
12
Christ crucified
14 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,
even so must the Son of man be lifted up:
15 That whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have eternal life.
16 For God so loved the world,
that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life.
13
I. Enter the Kingdom by the Blood & Baptism
B. Enter the Kingdom by the Blood
Faith in the blood of Christ (vs16) =
submission to baptism (vs. 5)
Everlasting life (vs. 16) =
enter the kingdom of God (vs. 5)
14
I. Enter the Kingdom by the Blood & Baptism
C. Doctrine of Salvation by Faith Alone
Nullifies the Cross
Denying the role of baptism prevents
access to the blood!
15
II. Saved by the Blood & Baptism
A. The Blood & Baptism in the Gospel
Believe + baptized = saved
15 And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world,
and preach the gospel to every creature.
16 He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;
but he that believeth not shall be damned.
16
Believe + Baptized = Saved
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe;
In my name shall they cast out devils;
they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents;
and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them;
they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
19 So then after the Lord had spoken unto them,
he was received up into heaven,
and sat on the right hand of God.
20 And they went forth, and preached every where,
the Lord working with them,
and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.
17
II. Saved by the Blood & Baptism
B. Not Reach the Blood by a False Gospel
True gospel confirmed by signs:
Believe + baptized = saved
Catholic gospel not confirmed:
Baptize infant = saved + believe later
Denominational gospel not confirmed:
Believe = saved + baptized later
18
III. Remission of Sins by the Blood & Baptism
A. Remission of Sins by the Blood
“For remission of sins”
19
“For the remission of sins”
26 And as they were eating, Jesus took bread,
and blessed it, and brake it, and gave it to the disciples,
and said, Take, eat; this is my body.
27 And he took the cup, and gave thanks,
and gave it to them, saying, Drink ye all of it;
28 For this is my blood of the new testament,
which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
20
III. Remission of Sins by the Blood & Baptism
B. Remission of Sins by Baptism
“For remission of sins”
21
“For remission of sins”
36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly,
that God hath made that same Jesus,
whom ye have crucified, both Lord and Christ.
37 Now when they heard this,
they were pricked in their heart,
and said unto Peter and to the rest of the apostles,
Men and brethren, what shall we do?
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.
22
III. Remission of Sins by the Blood & Baptism
C. Meaning of “For the Remission of Sins”
“For:” in order to obtain
“For remission of sins:”
blood is basis of remission
“For remission of sins:”
baptism is condition to receive remission
False doctrine: “for” means “because of”
23
IV. Preach Jesus, Preach the Blood & Baptism
A. When Philip Preached Jesus
“Here is water”
24
“Here is water”
32 The place of the scripture which he read was this,
He was led as a sheep to the slaughter;
and like a lamb dumb before his shearer,
so opened he not his mouth:
33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away:
and who shall declare his generation?
for his life is taken from the earth.
34 And the eunuch answered Philip, and said,
I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this?
of himself, or of some other man?
25
“Here is water”
35 Then Philip opened his mouth,
and began at the same scripture,
and preached unto him Jesus.
36 And as they went on their way,
they came unto a certain water:
and the eunuch said, See, here is water;
what doth hinder me to be baptized?
37 And Philip said,
If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest.
And he answered and said,
I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
26
“Here is water”
38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still:
and they went down both into the water,
both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
39 And when they were come up out of the water,
the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip,
that the eunuch saw him no more:
and he went on his way rejoicing.
27
IV. Preach Jesus, Preach the Blood & Baptism
B. How to Receive the Blood of Jesus
Philip preached: submit to water baptism
False teachers say faith only w/o baptism:
 Be saved in your seat or riding in a car
 Shake preacher’s hand, raise hand to God
 Say sinner’s prayer, pray at altar
 Sign a pledge of faith in Christ
28
V. Freed from Sin by the Blood & Baptism
A. Dead in Sin, THEN Dead to Sin
“Baptized into his death”
29
“Baptized into his death”
1 What shall we say then?
Shall we continue in sin, that grace may abound?
2 God forbid. How shall we, that are dead to sin,
live any longer therein?
3 Know ye not,
that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ
were baptized into his death?
4 Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death:
that like as Christ was raised up from the dead
by the glory of the Father,
even so we also should walk in newness of life.
30
V. Freed from Sin by the Blood & Baptism
A. Dead in Sin, THEN Dead to Sin
“Obeyed…free from sin”
17 But God be thanked,
that ye were the servants of sin,
but ye have obeyed from the heart
that form of doctrine which was delivered you.
18 Being then made free from sin,
ye became the servants of righteousness.
31
V. Freed from Sin by the Blood & Baptism
B. How Bury Dead Sinner, Rise to New Life?
Jesus died, buried in tomb, arose alive
Sinner dead, buried in baptism, rise alive
False doctrine:
 Sinner dead
 Made alive by faith only
 Later bury the living in baptism
32
VI. United with Christ by the Blood & Baptism
A. Redeemed by His Blood
Died on the cross for us
33
Died on the cross for us
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law,
being made a curse for us:
for it is written,
Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
14 That the blessing of Abraham
might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ;
that we might receive the promise of the Spirit
through faith.
34
VI. United with Christ by the Blood & Baptism
B. Receive Redemption: Baptized into Christ
Baptized by obedient faith
26 For ye are all the children of God
by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been
baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
35
VI. United with Christ by the Blood & Baptism
C. United with Christ by What Kind of Faith?
Obedient faith submits in baptism
False teaching: faith w/o baptism
26 For ye are all the children of God
by faith in Christ Jesus.
27 For as many of you as have been
baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
36
VII. Grace Saves by the Blood & Baptism
A. Paul Preached Christ to the Ephesians
Received salvation by baptism
5 When they heard this, they were baptized
in the name of the Lord Jesus.
37
VII. Grace Saves by the Blood & Baptism
B. Reminded Them: Saved by Grace & Blood
Grace extended by the blood
7 In whom we have redemption through his blood,
the forgiveness of sins,
according to the riches of his grace;
38
VII. Grace Saves by the Blood & Baptism
B. Reminded Them: Saved by Grace & Blood
Grace received by faith
8 For by grace are ye saved through faith;
and that not of yourselves:
it is the gift of God:
9 Not of works, lest any man should boast.
39
VII. Grace Saves by the Blood & Baptism
C. Reminded Them: Saved by Grace & Baptism
One Lord, one faith, one baptism
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
40
VII. Grace Saves by the Blood & Baptism
C. Reminded Them: Saved by Grace & Baptism
“Washing of water”
41
“Washing of water”
25 Husbands, love your wives,
even as Christ also loved the church,
and gave himself for it;
26 That he might sanctify and cleanse it
with the washing of water by the word,
27 That he might present it to himself a glorious church,
not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing;
but that it should be holy and without blemish.
42
VII. Grace Saves by the Blood & Baptism
D. God’s Grace Includes the Blood & Baptism
Water baptism of a penitent believer
is salvation by grace through faith
No salvation by grace through faith only
No salvation by grace w/o the one baptism,
“the washing of water”
43
VIII. A Line Drawn by the Blood & Baptism
A. Redemptive Work of Christ Completed
Died, arose to save us
44
Died, arose to save us
18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins,
the just for the unjust,
that he might bring us to God,
being put to death in the flesh,
but quickened by the Spirit:
19 By which also he went and preached
unto the spirits in prison;
20 Which sometime were disobedient,
when once the longsuffering of God waited
in the days of Noah,
while the ark was a preparing,
wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
45
VIII. A Line Drawn by the Blood & Baptism
B. Accept or Reject Salvation
Baptism saves us
46
Baptism saves us
21 The like figure whereunto
even baptism doth also now save us
(not the putting away of the filth of the flesh,
but the answer of a good conscience toward God,)
by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:
22 Who is gone into heaven,
and is on the right hand of God;
angels and authorities and powers being made subject
unto him.
47
VIII. A Line Drawn by the Blood & Baptism
C. A Line Drawn in Noah’s Time & Today
Water drew the line: only 8 saved
Baptism draws the line: few saved
Christ offers to us his cleansing blood:
“baptism doth also NOW save us”
False teachers nullify the blood:
“Baptism does NOT save us”
