4 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.
Introduction 2. How are the blood & baptism related? Christ’s blood: basis of salvation Our baptism: act of obedient faith to receive salvation 5
7 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. -------------------------------------------- ----- 23 For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God;
Introduction 4. What does the gospel say about the blood of Christ & baptism? 8
10 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.
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
13 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.
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
16 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.
17 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.
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
20 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.
22 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.
25 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?
26 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.
27 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.
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
30 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.
31 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.
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
34 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.
35 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.
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 36 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.
37 5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
38 7 In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;
39 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.
42 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.
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
45 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.
47 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.
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” 48
50 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.
51 16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
