According to Acts 2:38 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. Repent-----You got to be sorry for all the sins you have committed (knowingly and unknowingly and those sins you are just plain ignorant of. Be baptized-----(In water) the submerging of the entire body. Ye (You shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost) ----The evidence of speaking in tongues (the language that only GOD, HIMSELF will give unto you. If a person has been baptized and the Speaking in tongues has not come immediately then the person must continue to pray then-surely GOD will place the language into your mouth. Thank GOD for placing His Holy Spirit in me. This Language is not of myself because I cannot do it by myself. When GOD places HIS Spirit (The Holy Ghost into a person, they will know that there is An Almighty GOD that lives within HIS people. This Gift is not of man and it cannot be measured by man and his limited (small amount of knowledge but it is from above) The GOD that sits in the Highest Heaven and rules the entire earth in which HE, HIMSELF GOD made. Please, GOD, help the readers of these words seek for the forgiveness of their sins, be baptized in the Name of Jesus Christ so that they can experience the Gift of GOD. LORD, we need YOU, the entire world needs YOU, LORD, Trouble on every side, we need YOU, The storms of life is ragging, YOU, DEAR GOD is our hope. YOU, FATHER GOD is sturring the world like the eagle stirs his nest, we are helpless with You, JESUS.

Willie,

Just stand on the scriptures, God will take care of the rest, He will honour Your stand on His Word.

Acts 2:38 KJV

[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.

Find someone who will baptise you in the name of the Jesus Christ, if you haven't already.

Then you will not be tossed about by every ones opinions.

John 16:13 KJV

[13] Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.

He will guide you into all truth.

1 John 2:27 KJV

[27] But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him.

ye need not that any man teach you

There you go Willie, that's God's Word.

Stand on it, He promised it. Praise the Lord.

Faith leads to obedience.

John 15:7 KJV

[7] If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.

You want Him to settle this doubt, ask Him and believe Him when He said - it shall be done unto you.

Matthew 24:35 KJV

[35] Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.

God bless you

 

Mishael to Willie's comment on 2020-05-28 22:52:27:

Sometimes you need to read a lot of scripture About the Holy Spirit to be CERTAIN about who He is and what He is all about. He is not a tongue.

If you are nervous about who the Holy Spirit is... He already knows you are. He'll wait till you search the scriptures to be settled in your mind, that He is the 3rd person of the Godhead; He is the Spirit of Christ Jesus. Jesus went to the Cross partly so we all who believe on Jesus can receive the Holy Spirit without fears. Knowledge is strength.

If your Bible has a dictionary OR a concordance; look up all those scriptures.

When you ARE SURE you want the Holy Spirit ?? Then hold up your hands and say this out loud: " Holy Spirit I trust you and I want everything that you want me to have". I receive it now by faith. Thank you Jesus!!

Amen! Praise God! So Be It! Hallelujah!

 

Jesse's comment on 2020-05-28 18:59:43:

Willie,

The only gift that is promised to those who receive Christ is the gift of the Holy Spirit. He gives us His Spirit. No other gift is promised to us. You had nothing to be embarrassed about. There are some who teach that speaking in tongues is evidence that you have the Holy Spirit. Some will also say that your inability to speak in tongues is because of your "lack of faith." There's a theological term for that. It's called Baloney! There is no such thing as a person who has been born of God's Spirit lacking faith. I have never spoken in tongues but I have no doubt that God's Spirit is working in my life. The tongues that are being taught in the church today are not the tongues of the bible. As far as getting re-baptized (Water), there is nothing saying you can't do that. Water baptism is an outward testimony of an inward change. In other words, you are giving a public testimony that you have received Christ and you are identifying yourself with His death, burial, and resurrection. Water baptism is a physical human expression. Jesus baptizes people with His Spirit. That is the baptism that saves you!

 

willie's comment on 2020-05-28 16:36:03:

I was baptized at 19, but i have a question that i have struggled with since, as i was in the pool getting ready to be baptized the Pastor said to the people watching lets all pray that the Lord will give rich the gift of speaking in tongues, I was shocked to hear him say that and when i came up from the water i was quite embarrassed because i didn't get the gift. My question is was i still baptized or must i get it again. I am a Christian and the lord has answered many prayers since that day, but i have often wondered

 

Adam's comment on 2020-04-01 22:35:23:

Amen! This tells people exactly what they need to do to follow Jesus Christ.

care of my brother STEPHEN HOOPERS The reason people do not like Acts 2:38,is it donot agree with the doctrine of the Trinity.There is no record of water baptism in the titles or trinity in the word of God.After Jesus rose from the dead,he spoke to the Apostles for forty days,he told them to baptize in the father,and the son,and the holy ghost.The apostles went forth and baptized in the name of jesus.Either jesus is the name of the father,and of the son,and of the holy ghost,or the apostles did not obey what jesus commanded them to do.I believe the apostles were right,they were guided by the holy spirit.I thank God for this truth.God bless apostles Knew THE NAME of this FATHER,SON,HOLY GHOST its not "baptize in the father, and the son and the holy ghost " it should be Baptizing them " "IN THE NAME " " ' singular this is you pastor brother mentor what is you name Stephen Hoopers mathew 28:19 go ye therefore, and teach all nations, Baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost NAME is singular baptizing them " "INTHE NAME " " " "who 's name? " of the FATHER of course who is that Father is the FATHER is a name or a tittle and of the " SON " is the SON is name or a tittle and of the "HOLY GHOST " is the HOLY GHOST is a name or tittle Acts 2:38 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 received the gift of HOLY GHOST.

Mark 16:16 He believes AND IS baptized shal be saved.

 

derick perry's comment on 2015-03-09 19:58:53:

A person can not be saved without being filled with the holy ghost and there is no other name given by which we must be saved Jesus the name Jesus is god and god all by himself . Now baptism in Jesus name gives you this promise and god is not slack concerning his promises. Here 's another secret though its all about your heart and where u are concerning repentance the holy ghost is not given just because you are baptized in Jesus name its given when you truly want it and you break down sorrowfully humbly realizing your desperate need for Jesus to save your soul this can happen with out baptism look at john and the thief on the cross the lord can and will save who he so chooses and who humbly seeks him above and beyond all things although without his name there is no power and there is no promise it is a lot less likely for you to come into the truth and truly accept Jesus the name the one lord and the one baptism

In Acts 2:39 it explains that a person has to be "called " by the Lord JESUS our GOD , to receive this truth ! ..

The name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost is Jesus Christ! He that hath ears to hear, let him hear!

Trent's comment on 2014-12-25 10:46:16:

The book of Hebrews explains what it means to obey the gospel which is Christ 's death burial and resurrection. Please read it. It is very clear that baptism is how we put on Christ. It is not a work but is an act of obedience.

 

M Shipton's comment on 2014-12-12 03:28:33:

I was raised in a non apostolic church and followed Romans 10 9 8 fully believing this doctrine but after repenting numerous times I stil knew I was not saved. Most people believe in God but do they truly seek him or believe others. Isaiah 28 9 11 teaches that we must view the entire bible abd that God will speak through us with new tonhues but many wont see. I praise Jesus for allowing me find salvation through obeying Acts 2 38 and pray in his name that others will also find him and notice that in Romans 6 the church had followed the Acts doctrine and where alreadt saved.

 

Mario's comment on 2014-12-08 20:57:45:

Now The Question Was "Men And Brethren, What Shall We Do ? " Peter 's Answer Was Clear And Said "Repent, and be Baptized In The Name of Jesus Christ for the remission Of Sins, and Ye Shal Receive the gift Of The holy ghost " The Answer Is Clear . Another Thing I Would Like To Comment On Is This Matthew 28 19 "Go ye Therefore, and teach all nations baptizing them in the Name "not names " Of The Father , and of the son and of the holy ghost " What Is The Name Of the Father ? Jesus What Is the Name Of The Son Jesus And What Is The Name Of The Holy Ghost ? Jesus. In The Name Of Jesus Christ . One More Thing We Where Created In God 's Image ... Now When I Look In The Mirror I Only See One Not Three . One God And His Name Is Jesus Christ .

 

Joe's comment on 2014-12-04 19:05:10:

Acts 2 38 does not say that baptism will save your soul..there are not different ways of salvation. In the Old and New testament times it has always been by Faith .. and since Baptism is a work something we do ,, we ARE NOT saved by works ..a work robs God of his Glory ,, God would owe us salvation if it was by Baptism .
