Christ baptized with the Holy Spirit, didn't He?
Two more questions?
When do you think the apostles were saved? If baptism saves you...were they saved when John baptized them?
If baptism washes away sin...what happens if you sin after you are baptized?
Yes, I believe the aposltes were baptized with John's baptism which remitted sins.
In Acts 8, Simon believed and was baptized, v13. Afterwards he sinned by trying to buy the power of the Holy Spirit with money, v18 and Peter told him to pray and repent for forgiveness, v22.
So when John baptized the apostles, you believe this is when they received eternal life?
I thought that Johns baptism was unto repentance (change of mind)?
So, baptism did not save Simon?
Mk 1:4 "John did baptize in the wilderness, and preach the baptism of repentance for the remission of sins."
Acts 8:13 "Then Simon himself believed also: and when he was baptized, he continued with Philip, and wondered, beholding the miracles and signs which were done."
Mk 16:16 "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved;..."
According to Jesus' own words Simon would be in a saved position when he believed and was baptized, else Jesus lied.
So were the apostles saved when John baptized them?
and baptism saved them? So what happen on the day of Pentecost?
John's baptism ended and Christ's baptism of the great commission began.
God baptized the apostles in Acts 2 to fulfill the promise of the Comforter being sent to them. God baptized the Gentiles with the HS in Acts 10 as a sign to the Jews that the gospel was not for the Jews only. These two instances fulfilled Joel's prophecy about God's spirit being poured out upon all flesh (Jew and Gentile) making this baptism obsolete.
The baptism in the Holy Ghost wasn't just for the disciples and the Gentiles in
Acts 2, & 10.
Jesus said it was for everyone who'll believe, Jn 7: 37--39. Jn 14: 12--16.
So did Peter, Acts 2: 38--39.
People still got baptised in the Holy Ghost after the gentiles in Acts 10. Acts 19: 2--6.
God is still baptising people with the Holy Ghost today.
Jesus nor Peter never promised baptism with the HS to everyone that believed. There is not a single NT verse that promises Dr Truth that he will be baptized with the HS.
Stop telling lies you naughty man.
Mk 16: 17,These sign shall follow "THEM THAT BELIEVETH".
v17, "THEY SHALL SPEAK WITH NEW TONGES"..
You have to be baptised in the Holy Ghost to speak in tongues.
Jn 7: 37--39.
V37, "If ANY MAN". V38, "HE that BELIEVETH".
Jn 14: 12--16, V12, "HE that BELIEVETH".
Acts 2: 28-39.
V39. "The promis is unto YOU". And, "As many as God calls".
If you believe God has called you, Then the Holy Ghost is for you.
Acts 15: 8--9.
V9. "Purifying the hearts by FAITH".
Acts 5: 32, "God gives the Holy Ghost to the that obey Him".
