Day 21: TEN MORE DAYS TILL PENTECOST

Saints, we have ten more days until we get to Pentecost 2009! Are ya ready?

I was on youtube and had made a comment about a Seventh Day Adventist choir (which was really good by the way). Well, it started a discussion on why I am no longer Adventist and decided to become Apostolic. I wanted to share with you some scriptures concerning the Name of Jesus Christ. You see, trinitarians will tell you that they are being obedient to Jesus because they baptise in the titles Father, Son and Holy Ghost but I beg to differ. You see, further research (coupled with divine revelation) will show you that Jesus is the Name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

Lets take our bibles out and find out exactly what I am talking about. Matthew 28:19 says Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Well, what is the NAME of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost. I know and will be more than happy to tell you.

Father (John 10:30) I and my Father are one! So We find out that Jesus is not only claiming to be one with GOD but that He is GOD. So the Father’s Name is Jesus (since they are one).

Son (Matthew 1:22-23Now all this was done, that it might be fulfilled which was spoken of the Lord by the prophet, saying, Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. So, what was this Sons Name? JESUS! God with us!

Holy Ghost (John 14:26) But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you. My Name? What Name? The Comforter, the Holy Ghost is sent in Jesus Name! Jesus is also the Holy Ghost!

So we see from the above scriptures that God chose to manifest Himself in forms known to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit but he has a Name and the Name of those titles of manifestation is JESUS! Remember, Acts 4:12 clearly says Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. That Name is JESUS!

Colossians 3:17 says And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. So that includes baptism. Why fight it. Be correct today. Make a conscience decision to be baptised in Jesus Name today and He promises you that you will receive the Holy Ghost (but first ya gotta repent). ACTS 2:38

With that said, this is what we the Oneness Pentecostal Apostolic church teach, believe and hold to be true. There is no way getting around this one. Granted, we (the Oneness Pentecostals) may be divided into different organizational names such as UPC or COOLJC or PAW, but we all teach the very same thing when its all said and done. Dont worry about the organization you are a part of (my dear watch tower readers……mmm hmmm, I know you read my blog too) worry about doing what the Bible says to do. In EVERYTHING you must do it in the Name of Jesus Christ.

…….and now, the anticipation fills the air as we all await the arrival of Pentecost 2009!
