4 Joel Chapter Two31 The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the coming of the great and terrible day of the Lord. 32 And it shall come to pass that whoever calls on the name of theLord shall be saved. For in Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there shall be deliverance, as the Lord has said, among the remnant whom the Lord calls.
5 Isaiah 22 Now it shall come to pass in the latter days that the mountain of the Lord’s house shall be established on the top of the mountains, and shall be exalted above the hills; and all nations shall flow to it.3 Many people shall come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, to the house of Jacob; He will teach us His ways, and we shall walk in His paths.” For out of Zion shall go forth the law, and the word of the Lord from Jerusalem.

14 Acts Chapter Two 1:26 he was numbered with the eleven apostles. 2:1 Now when the day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. 2 And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting3 Then there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. 4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
15 Acts Chapter Two4 And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. 5 Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven.6 And when this sound occurred, the multitude came together, and were confused, because everyone heard them speak in his own language 7 Then they were all amazed and marveled, saying to one another, “Look are not all these Galileans?
16 Acts Chapter Two8 “And how is it that we hear each in our own language in which we were born?...11 We hear them speaking in our own tongues the wonderful works of God.” 12 So they were all amazed and perplexed, saying to one another, “What-ever could this mean?”14 But Peter, standing up with the eleven, raised his voice and said to them, “Men of Judea and all who dwell in Jerusalem, let this be known to you, and heed my words… 16 But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel…
17 Acts Chapter Two22 “Men of Israel, hear these words: Jesus of Nazareth, a Man attested by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs which God did through Him in your midst, as you yourselves know 23 Him, being delivered by the determined counsel and foreknow-ledge of God, youhave taken by lawless hands, have crucified, and put to death; 24 whom God raised up, having loosed the pains of death, because it was not possible that He should be held by it.You saw the miraculousproof yet you killed Himanyway!He is impossible to defeat
18 Acts Chapter TwoQuotes Psalm 16:8-1127 because You will not leave my soul in Hades, nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption. You have made known to me the ways of life; you will make me full of joy in your presence.”25 “For David says concerning Him: ‘I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for He is at my right hand, that I may not be shaken; 26 Therefore my heart rejoiced and my tongue was glad; moreover my flesh will also rest in hope,Who is Davidtalking about?
19 Acts Chapter Two29 “Men and brethren, let me speak freely to you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his tomb is with us to this day. 30 Therefore, being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him that of the fruit of his body, according to the flesh, He wouldraise up the Christ to sit on his throne, 31 he, foreseeing this, spoke concerning the resurrection of the Christ, that his soul was not left in Hades, nor did His flesh see corruption..David told you about this!Your great David is in thegrave, but Jesus is risen!
20 Acts Chapter Two32 This Jesus God has raised up, of which we are all witnesses. 33 Therefore being exalted to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He poured out this which you now see and hear.34 For David did not ascend into the heavens, but he says himself “The LORD said to my Lord, ‘Sit at My right hand, till I make your enemies your footstool.’”Quotes Psalm 110:1 whereDavid speaks of Christ’sascension to the heavenlythrone
21 Acts Chapter Two36 “Therefore let all the house of Israel know assuredly that God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord and Christ.” 37 Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, “Men and brethren, what shall we do?38 Then Peter said to them, “Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39 For this promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.”

23 Many Say Baptism Is Not Essential: “Baptism is not essential to salvation” (Baptist Manual, 1890)“We are not saved by baptism” (Billy Graham, My Answer, 1958)“Baptism does not wash away sins” (Jehovah’s Witness, Make Sure of All Things, 1957)“It is not a washing away of one’s sins” (Jehovah’s Witness, The Truth that Leads to Everlasting Life, 1968)
24 Without Baptism You Cannot: Obey Christ’s command (Matt. 28:19)Be saved (Mark 16:16; 1 Pet. 3:21)Enter the kingdom (John 3:3-5)Have remission of sins (Acts 2:38)Wash away sins (Acts 22:16)Walk in newness of life (Rom. 6:4)Be in the one body (1 Cor. 12:13)Put on Christ (Gal. 3:27)Follow biblical example (Acts)
25 Acts Chapter Two40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.” 41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them. 42 And they continuedsteadfastly in the apostles doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers. 43 Then fear came upon every soul, and many wonders were done through the apostles. 44 Now all who believed were together, and had all things in common,
26 Acts Chapter Two45 And sold their possessions and goods, and divided them among all, as anyone had need. 46 So continuing daily in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.*Which church?*Are you saved?*Have you been addedto the Lord’s church?*Will you continue?
