Why Do We Get Baptized – Scripture And The Real Truth About Baptism In JESUS CHRIST’s Name | Repent Hub

Baptism is a sacrament that holds a significant place in the Christian faith. According to the book of Matthew 28:18-20, CHRIST commanded his disciples to baptize in the name of the FATHER, the SON, and the HOLY GHOST. This means that when baptizing someone, it is essential to mention these names / this formula, following CHRIST’s instructions: FATHER (YAHOWA), SON (IESOUS), and the HOLY SPIRIT (RUACH ELOHIM) to ensure that we are following CHRIST’s commands.

In the old testament, RUACH ELOHIM means the breath of God or the SPIRIT OF GOD. In Genesis 41:38, Pharaoh said of Moses, “Can we find a man like this, in whom is the RUACH ELOHIM?” In the new testament in the book of Acts 2:4, we read that the HOLY SPIRIT comes upon the disciples, and they were all filled with the HOLY SPIRIT and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. In John 14:26, CHRIST says that the Comforter, which is the HOLY, whom the Father will send in HIS name, shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. We find out that the Holy Ghost comes in the name of CHRIST.

In Romans 8:9, we learn that the Holy Ghost is the Spirit of CHRIST. Therefore, the name of the HOLY GHOST is JESUS CHRIST. What then is the name of the FATHER? In the book of John 14:8-10, Philip said to CHRIST, “Lord, show us the FATHER, and it is sufficient for us.” CHRIST said to him, “Have I been with you so long, and yet you have not known Me, Philip? He who has seen Me has seen the FATHER; so how can you say, ‘Show us the FATHER’? Do you not believe that I am in the FATHER, and the FATHER in Me? The words that I speak to you I do not speak on My own authority; but the FATHER who dwells in Me does the works.” (FATHER= CHRIST)

IESOUS said in John 5:43 that he came in his FATHER’s name. We also know the FATHER and the SON are one. In the book of John 10:30, Jesus says, “I and my Father are one.” As it is written in the book of Isaiah 9:6, “For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Simply put, the Father and the Son have the same name. *the son is the FATHER, son and Holy Ghost – in Proverbs 11:14, 15:22, and 24:6. This underscores the Holy Spirit’s role as a wonderful counselor. Did you missed that?

Some people may be confused about which way to baptize, but we can look at how the disciples baptized after CHRIST gave that commandment in Matthew 28:19. Looking at Acts 2:38-41, we find Apostle Peter baptizing people in the name of IESOUS. These were the first baptism after Matthew 28:19. Later we find Evangelist Philip baptizing people in IESOUS’s Name in the book of Acts 8:12-17. Many years later, we find the Apostle Paul baptizing / re-baptizing people who had been baptized by John the Baptist in the Name of CHRIST. It is amazing to find that every baptism that happened after CHRIST gave commandment in Matthew occurred in JESUS CHRIST’s Name. This is the reason why we baptize in IESOUS’s (JESUS) Name and encourage everyone to do the same.

Baptism is an essential sacrament in the Christian faith, and it should be done following Christ’s instructions. When baptizing someone

However, if you choose not to undergo baptism in the name of JESUS and prefer the traditional formula of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, ensure that you specifically mention the Father’s name – which is Christ. When invoking the name of the Son, recognize that the Son’s name is also Christ. Similarly, when invoking the Holy Spirit, acknowledge that the Holy Spirit’s name is Christ, often referred to as the wonderful Counselor. Did you grasp that concept?
