Gigi Skip comment on Mathew 3:2 wrong context.


Jesse's comment on 2022-01-04 17:56:44:

Thanks Rick, I'll toast to that!


Rick Mentzer's comment on 2022-01-04 16:52:10:

Gigi I have taken the time to do that but again when you start getting into the original language translations

then your thought of changing scripture so wisdom says don't go there. You can't upset an apple cart if you dont

supply more apples.


Rick Mentzer's comment on 2022-01-04 16:39:32:

Jesse You can't wash away old man nature needs to be spiritually toasted, cooked from inside out. This

sounds odd I'm getting hungry.


Gigi's comment on 2022-01-04 16:34:56:

In scripture the normative meaning when it speaks of baptism, it is talking about water baptism.

One could google that and find out if what I am saying is true or not. I encourage people to read up on what Christian history shows to be the meaning and type when it speaks of baptizing, which means to immerse in or pour water over a person.


Many on here will argue against this because they don't want the text to mean water baptism due to their desire to have it mean something different. That is why I suggest someone research it outside of the comments on this site if one wants to really find the answer.


Jesse's comment on 2022-01-04 11:36:03:


Back in those days they had what was called the threshing floor. What they would do was they would gather their crops in and they would grind it on the threshing floor, and the grain would separate from the chaff. And then they would take a shovel, a winnowing fork, a winnowing fan, and they throw it up in the air. And the grain would only travel a certain distance but the chaff would blow even further away.

By the time they finished this process, they would have two separate piles on the floor. One pile goes into the barn, and the other one you burn. What this is talking about is that with Jesus, either you are going to get baptized with His spirit, because that's the name of his ministry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit, or the fire of judgment. He will separate the wheat from the chaff.

As for what baptism is Paul talking about in Romans Chapters 5 and 6, he is presenting to us the process of salvation, and the baptism he mentions in Romans Chapter 6 is Spirit baptism, not water baptism.

I have a question from Matthew 3:12 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

chaff ? Why use a word like that?

And all friends and Jesus loving ppl. I have a word for U. From Romans 5 and 6 chapter.

What baptism is Paul talking about here?

Many thanks in advance in Jesus Christ. Be blessed in the Holy Name above all names Amen.

Amen! It is his will.

Hi David, returning to this once again, I think I read somewhere that all of the apostles/disciples were baptized in water prior to this moment in time where Jesus promised the Holy Spirit. That is why the apostles baptized new believers in water: that Jesus was baptized and the manifestation of the Father (voice) and Spirit (dove) were a visual teaching what those who are baptized receive; that they were baptized in water when they were called follow Jesus (Jesus baptized at the same time John did); and that Jesus commanded it in Matthew 28.


GiGi again's comment on 2021-11-17 10:48:21:

As I, you.

In His Love, GiGi


GiGi again's comment on 2021-11-17 10:45:57:

Hi, there again.

For me, it is clear that Jesus commanded tat it be done, so I was happy to obey His command.


David's comment on 2021-11-16 19:40:16:

Hi Gigi Ephesians 4:4 There is one body one spirit, one hope one baptism one faith and one God this is in the Age of grace that we are living in. I myself am not against water baptism but in our Age Romans 10:9+10 is whats written to be

believed and get the job done internally. But if someone feels they gotta do both o.k.


GiGi again's comment on 2021-11-16 18:21:06:

Yes, Rick;

I've been blessed to see my dear son grow up (now 34) instead of dying from newborn sepsis. so, yes, God delivered Him. He could have taken him to Him, also. I had prayed in the hall that I will accept His will either way because my son really was His, not ultimately mine.


Rick's comment on 2021-11-16 18:19:43:

Sis Its a privilege to communicate with and know you, you talk with your heart.


GiGi's comment on 2021-11-16 18:14:56:


As far as what is recorded in Scripture, baptism was not discussed at the council in Jerusalem. All of the apostles baptized new believers in water. It was not a part of the O.T. law.


Rick's comment on 2021-11-16 17:33:41:

Sis Wasn't looking for that sounds like great deliverance amen.


GiGi again's comment on 2021-11-16 17:15:02:

Thanks Rick, but I don't think I need to explain anymore than that my pastor and a fellow believer in my congregation laid hands on me a prayed for me to differs, more empowerment from the Holy Spirit. Everyone's experience of this different, but it did the done in a biblical way. you are welcome to search my post where I laid hands on my newborn son who was very ill spoke words to him that the Spirit gave me to say to him. There was an instant change in his circumstances, and he recovered. The nurses had said that he was shutting down and they could not get into his veins to get a draw and do a spinal tap. His skin was all mottled blue and pink and he was breathing shallowly. !the moment I laid my hand on his chest and spoke to him, his skin returned to normal coloring, his veins opened up, and his breathing returned to normal. All the staff noticed it. So, there you go! Praise God! I do not claim to have a gift of healing, or any other gifts that would be considered "signs and wonders". I just do what I'm moved to do in circumstances. God does the rest.

Have a wonderful night, Rick. It has been good "talking" with you today.


Rick's comment on 2021-11-16 16:26:07:

Gigi Hello again I know a man who was struck with an illness he couldn't keep down food at all sent to hospital and was going down fast a believer went in and prayed for him, left called up another believer who was into homeopathic stuff, she went in and started slowly feeding him black strap molasses and one herb, two days later he walked out recovered. I also know a leader that when three mile island in pa. nuclear facility had big problems went there they ask why do you want in he point blank said I'm hear to pray for this to stop. They left him in it did. See these things aren't coincidental they are displayed power available to the believers in our day and time. We are taught to believe by action then see not I'll believe when i see, that's a cop out. God Bless got to go for now Remember your Gods best and the devils pest. LOL


Rick's comment on 2021-11-16 16:09:53:

Gigi There is only one belief system or religion in the world that the all truth was made known that is Christianity and everything that a person has been given when born again. In all other religions there are higher levels of belief, so many steps where this or that get closer to higher power, holy water?, climb this holy mountain, chant this long, you name it and in th Church epistle Paul address it all. Paul's calling card was not just what he said, 1 Corinthians 1:4 demonstration of spirit and of power the word power [dunamis spiritual ability displayed]. Ephesians 1:19 exceeding greatness of His dunamis in us you and me who believe. Question you said you were ministered to laying on of hands is what I understand is God telling me first to move to get information on whether the problem is physical or spiritual and what to do, actually this fits into the category of word of knowledge information of whats going on, word of wisdom action to carry out to solve the problem. These people on tv. no dice its a great counterfeit because it is not guessing at all it is not analytical.

Page two coming.
