WAS PETER AND OTHERS IGNORANT WHEN THEY TAUGHT THE ABSOLUTE DEMAND FOR BAPTISM AS A REQUEST FOR THE REMISSION OF SINS?
FALSE CLAIM: Peter and Others were false teachers because there was no REASON for their demands and YOU don't have to obey because you are not a Jews.
AND IN A CHURCH NEAR YOU
Acts 13:27 For they that dwell at Jerusalem, and their RULERS,
because they knew him not,
nor yet the VOICES OF THE PROPHETS
which are READ every sabbath day,
they have fulfilled them in condemning him
Acts 15:21 For Moses of old time hath in every city
them that PREACH him, being READ in the synagogues every sabbath [REST] day.
The PROPHETIC or more spiritual thread repudiated the PRIESTLY including the LEVITE CLASS.
Eph. 2:19 Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners,
but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the HOUSEHOLD of God;
Eph. 2:20 And are built upon [EDUCATED BY] the foundation of the APOSTLES and PROPHETS,
Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone;
Eph. 2:21 In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord:
Eph. 2:22 In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.
Eph. 3:1 For this cause I Paul, the prisoner of Jesus Christ for you Gentiles,
Eph. 3:2 If ye have heard of the dispensation of the grace of God which is given me to you-ward:
Eph. 3:3 How that by REVELATION he made known unto me the mystery; (as I wrote afore in few words,
Eph. 3:4 Whereby, when ye READ, ye may understand my knowledge in the mystery of Christ)
The Spirit or Breath of God which inspired the PROPHETS (and not priests) define the future REST or School of Messiah both Inclusively and exclusively.
The Church is to be EDUCATED only by the Prophets and Apostles who were eye--and Ear--witnesses of Jesus and the Power of God.
Peter outlawed Private Interpretation or FURTHER EXPOUNDING which would despise God's Spirit.
ISAIAH 1 IS A PROPHECY OF BAPTISM: IF PETER HAD VISITED QUMRAN HE COULD HAVE READ AN ISAIAH SCROLL
356-103 BCE and 150-100 BCE
FIRST LOOK AT THE FAILURE OF THE JEWS
Is. 1:2 Hear, O heavens, and give ear, O earth: for the Lord hath spoken,
I have nourished and brought up children, and they have rebelled against me.
Is. 1:3 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master’s crib:
but Israel doth not know, my people doth not consider.
Isaiah 1:4 Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a SEED of evildoers,
children that are corrupters:
they have forsaken the Lord, they have provoked
[blasphemaverunt] the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward.
Isaiah 1:8 And the daughter of Zion is left as a cottage in a vineyard, as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers, as a besieged city.
Isaiah 1: 9 Except the Lord of hosts had left unto us a very small remnant,
we should have been as Sodom, and we should have been like unto Gomorrah.
Is. 1:10 Hear the word of the LORD, ye RULERS of Sodom;
give ear unto the law of our God, ye people of Gomorrah.
Rev. 11:8 And their dead bodies shall lie in the street of the great city,
which spiritually is called Sodom and Egypt, where also our Lord was crucified
The Spirit OF Christ contradicts. God said nothing about their mental attutude:
Is. 1:11 To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? saith the LORD:
I am full of the burnt offerings of rams, and the fat of fed beasts;
and I delight not in the blood of bullocks, or of lambs, or of he goats.
Is. 1:12 When ye come to appear before me,
who hath required this at your hand, to tread my courts?
Is. 1:13 Bring no more vain oblations;
incense is an abomination unto me; the new moons and sabbaths,
the calling of assemblies, I cannot away with;
it is iniquity, even the solemn meeting.
Is. 1:14 Your new moons and your appointed feasts my soul hateth:
they are a trouble unto me; I am weary to bear them.
Is. 1:15 And when ye spread forth your hands,
I will hide mine eyes from you: yea,
when ye make many prayers,
I will not hear: your hands are full of blood.
This very small remnant was preached to as the gospel was commanded to go to the Gentiles.
ISAIAH BY THE SPIRIT OF CHRIST (MESSIAH) THEN DEFINES BAPTISM WHICH WAS OBEYED BY CHRIST and commanded as the way to MAKE DISCIPLES or STUDENTS
