All Israel was entered into the law of Moses at their first Passover aged 11 by Hebrew reckoning and baptised into the ICC at the same time (unbeknown to them)
19 Having gone your way therefore, make disciples of all the nations, baptising them into the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28 KI).
We discovered in the previous section that these are 3 baptisms into the names of 3 mediators. But who is the Father? Who is the Son? And who is the mediator of the baptism into the name of the holy spirit?
Well in the initial meaning the Father is Abraham (into the 1AC), the son is Isaac (into the ICC) and the mediator of the baptism into the name of the Holy Spirit is the head of the particular Holy Spirit.
The head of the first Holy Spirit was Satan until he sinned in Eden.
Then when Jesus negotiated with Satan for the firstborn angelic rights in the greater bowl of soup deal of U17, one of the croutons in that soup was an agreement from Satan that God could reform the first Holy Spirit using one of the 12 apostolic angels who were immediately underneath Satan in that spirit (even before Jesus performed his ransoms of Adam). Satan's 6,000 year lease to be Caesar, the secular king over Adam, began on 3990Iyyar17. So the first Holy Spirit was reformed at that time with a new angelic head (a first generation son of Satan, one of the original 9 apostles of the 1st Holy Spirit - from the 9 stones of Ezekiel28). Michael was given everlasting life as a bridal gift (see U65) in advance of the 2nd Holy Spirit marriage. The blessing of the 2nd Holy Spirit is therefore everlasting life.
So Jesus received everlasting life as a bridal gift for the 2nd Holy Spirit marriage !
Then on 33Nisan16, when Michael offered his angel to God in ransom of Adam, God initially gave it straight back to him in order that Michael could be the head of the 2nd Holy Spirit and get married to God along with 144,000 angels of the 2nd Holy Spirit on that day.
17 This is why the Father loves me,
because I surrender my soul, in order that I may receive it again.
18 No man has taken it away from me, but I surrender it of my own initiative. I have authority to surrender it, and I have authority to receive it again. The commandment on this I received from my Father. (John 10 NWT)
Then the 2HSC marriage was celebrated for 7 days whilst Michael spent most of that time in the bridal chamber except when he came out and showed the blood in his hands and his side to his apostles. This was the equivalent of showing the blood of the ripped hymen of the virgin on the bedsheets presumably.
So from 33Nisan15 the head of the 2nd Holy Spirit was Michael.
But then on 2008Nisan22, Michael got married himself to the first presence 1NCs who became his Holy Spirit, the 3rd Holy Spirit. And Peter is the head of that wife. So Peter does indeed baptise people into the name of the 3rd Holy Spirit!
But the ambiguity of the baptisms into the Father and the Son require a second interpretation which is as follows
The Father is Isaac (into the ICC), the son is Jacob (into the JAC). The 3rd Holy Spirit does baptise people 2NCs into the JAC for 2NCs are the angelic sons of the 1NCs.
Then there is a third interpretation as follows.
The Father is Jehovah, the Son is the next God to be and the Holy Spirit is his wife. This interpretation is saying that the apostles will one day baptise the next God to be into the name of Jehovah, making him into a God. this will occur with the 3rd God, the one who reaches divinity after Michael. For more on those who attain to divinity please see U190.
So in summary the Father, Son, Holy Spirit combinations are...
1. Abraham, Isaac, 3rd Holy Spirit
2. Isaac, Jacob, 3rd Holy Spirit
3. Jehovah, God number3, 4th Holy Spirit
In general, true Christians baptise people into the ICC, the true church, then humans who have been resurrected as angels baptise people into the JAC and into the ARC. the baptism into the ARC is not a baptism into the name of the Holy Spirit. Paul received the crown of life when he was on earth as a human and therefore not a part of any angelic Holy Spirit.
12 Happy is the man that keeps on enduring trial, because on becoming approved he will receive the crown of life, which Jehovah promised to those who continue loving him. (James 1 NWT)
8 From this time on there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me as a reward in that day, yet not only to me, but also to all those who have loved his manifestation. (2 Timothy 4 NWT)
And the 11 apostles were sealed at Pentecost on 33Sivan5.
4 And while he was meeting with them he gave them the
orders: Do not withdraw from Jerusalem, but keep waiting for what the Father has
promised, about which you heard from me;
5 because John, indeed, baptized with water, but you will be baptized in holy spirit not many days after this. (Acts 1 NWT)
This was their sealing into the ARC. For you cannot be given the capacity to give the gifts of the Spirit by the laying on of the hands unless you are sealed angelically (and unless you are an apostle actually).
17 Then they went laying their hands upon them, and they
began to receive holy spirit.
18 Now when Simon saw that through the laying on of the hands of the apostles the spirit was given, he offered them money,
19 saying: Give me also this authority, that anyone upon whom I lay my hands may receive holy spirit. (Acts 8 NWT)
All kingdom citizens are sons of Abraham forPeter said...
25 You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant which God covenanted with your forefathers, saying to Abraham: And in your seed all the families of the earth will be blessed (Acts 3).
And Paul said likewise...
...He is the father of us all,
17 just as it is written: I have appointed you a father of many nations. This was in the sight of the one in whom he had faith, even of God, who makes the dead alive and calls the things that are not as though they are (Romans 4).
Abraham is a father by covenant of everyone who has faith in God. This is explained by Paul in Romans 4. It is well known that Abraham is the father of every circumcised person who ever lived. Even today he is that father of every son of Ishmael and every Jew who is circumcised. But the fleshly circumcision due to genetic descendancy from Abraham is merely an archetype, a physical representation of the cleanliness achieved by all the sons of Abraham through faith in a divine creator (not necessarily in Jehovah). These are the people who exhibit the faith in God that Abraham had and are thereby constituted his sons through the First Abrahamic Covenant, the 1AC. The blessing of this covenant is that you gain citizenship of the Kingdom of God. So Abraham's fleshly family are the circumcised ones, but his spiritual family are the faithful ones, and it is his spiritual family that inherits the Kingdom of God. His fleshly family got a piece of land from the Nile to the Euphrates. His covenant family get the entire planet from 2020Ab4 (the end of the 40+40 day lava flood from 2020Iyyar14) to 3008Nisan14. In fact Abraham's physical family tree is God's giant parable for salvation.
However Christians do not often baptise into Abraham. They baptise into the water baptism covenant of the church which is the 1EC, the 2EC, the 3EC or the 4EC, for the 4 Christian churches. All these 4 covenants are subcovenants of the ICC. So the name that Jesus' disciples baptise people into through water baptism is in fact Isaac.
Abraham was declared righteous by faith apart from works of law, he was declared righteous by faith before the Law of Moses came into existence. He took a test outside of God's law, outside of a true religion. Paul famously describes people in this situation as being a law unto themselves...
13 For the hearers of law are not the ones righteous before God,
but the doers of law will be declared righteous.
14 For whenever people of the nations that do not have law do by nature the things of the law, these people, although not having law, are a law unto themselves.
15 They are the very ones who demonstrate the matter of the law to be written in their hearts, while their conscience is bearing witness with them and, between their own thoughts, they are being accused or even excused.
16 This will be in the day when God through Christ Jesus judges the secret things of mankind, according to the good news I declare (Romans 2).
Abraham passed a test not of the law of God but of the law of his heart, which is the law of his conscience. In this way he was a law unto himself. He had to follow his conscience, he had to obey a secret law of works of his own making. This indeed is how God judges us all in the absence of the law of a true religion. But he was sealed due to his faith in God. This type of test is what we call 'faith perfected works'. If you are baptised into works then you are sealed by faith. Abraham kept his faith during the test on the works of his conscience, and therefore was sealed. To be sealed you need both the works and the faith. Sealing is finishing and passing the test of a baptism. Abraham was given the circumcision as a seal of his righteousness by faith (Romans 4:!1). Being sealed is being declared righteous, which again is the end of the baptism test. Once Abraham had passed he then became a kind of John the baptist figure for the 'baptism' of circumcision.
The circumcision prefigures the washing clean of your conscience that begins the test of your conscience that you enter through the 1AC. This is a washing of your conscience from past sins. If you pass this test, keeping to your conscience, then you are sealed, i.e. declared righteous in the flesh, and you enter into the FRC. But you cannot obey your conscience without faith in God. Just as a 5 year old cannot continue to obey the rules of grammar and spelling without constant reference to his teacher.
On the other hand if you are baptised into faith (as those who are spirit baptised are), then you are sealed by works, for faith without works is dead...
26 Indeed, as the body without spirit is
dead, so also faith without works is dead (James 2).
So a baptism into faith is perfected by works and we call this type of test 'works perfected faith'.
A test of works perfected by faith requires a set of laws to
be obeyed without losing your faith in God. Your faith is what causes God to say
fine you have passed.
A test of faith perfected by works, requires that you perfect your faith to the point where your works prove it, whilst all the time obeying the law of your conscience.
The spirit baptised must find a true religion and join it, for you cannot be a son of Jacob, the father of the spirit baptism through the JAC, without being a son of Isaac, the father of the water baptism through the ICC. But whilst finding and joining the true church is necessary for the saints it is not sufficient. There are no compulsory works at all during the test, but your faith will find expression in various good works of your choice. These optional works are what cause God to say fine you have passed.
So it is doing what you have to do for God that gets you baptized and then it is doing what you did not have to do for God, that gets you sealed.
Abraham's test was whether or not his works matched up to his conscience. Tests of works require a baptism of the flesh, because it is the flesh that does works of law or works of lawlessness - what shall we say about Abraham our forefather according to the flesh? The flesh is washed in water by a water baptism. Past sins are washed by water baptism. Future sins are washed by spirit baptism. These are the two cleansing methods of the true God that are referred to throughout the new testament...
21 That which corresponds to this is also now saving you, namely baptism, (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh [the water baptism], but the request made to God for a good conscience) through the resurrection of Jesus Christ [the holy spirit baptism](1 Peter 3).
22 let us approach with true hearts in the full assurance of faith, having had our hearts sprinkled from a wicked conscience [the holy spirit baptism] and our bodies bathed with clean water [the water baptism] (Hebrews 10).
5 owing to no works in righteousness that we had performed, but according to his mercy he saved us through the bath that brought us to life [the water baptism] and through the making of us new by holy spirit [the holy spirit baptism] (Titus 3).
2 and he said to them: Did you receive holy
spirit when you became believers? They said to him: Why, we have never heard whether there is a holy
3 And he said: In what, then, were you baptized? They said: In John's baptism [the water baptism].
4 Paul said: John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in the one coming after
him, that is, in Jesus.
5 On hearing this, they got baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus [the holy spirit baptism].
6 And when Paul laid his hands upon them, the holy spirit came upon them, and they began speaking with tongues and prophesying (Acts 19).
11 I, for my part, baptize you with water [the water baptism] because of your repentance; but the one coming after me is stronger than I am, whose sandals I am not fit to take off. That one will baptize you people with holy spirit [the holy spirit baptism] and with fire [the baptism into Gehenna, your prison number allocation - see I14] (Matthew 3).
So the baptism into the name of Abraham, the cleansing for entrance into the 1AC is a water baptism of your flesh from dead works of your conscience. The test, is a test of works of your flesh which should be in accordance with your conscience. Then if you keep faith in God (or Jesus, or the trinity, or Allah, or Brahman or however you see him) through this test as well, you pass and are sealed in the flesh as a result of obeying your conscience and keeping your faith, your spirituality, without ever having joined a true church. This is the sacred secret of how the majority of mankind are saved.
If you obey your conscience under test and if you keep your spiritual perspective, you will be saved. You will be saved even though your conscience may be nowhere near to God's perfect law, and even though your spirituality may be nowhere near to the true faith. But if you have shown the true God that you can obey your set of laws under test, then he knows that once he has taught you his set of laws, you will obey them too. And if you can hold fast to a not particularly accurate spiritual perspective throughout the whole process, then he knows that one day you will hold fast to a totally accurate spiritual perspective.
So the beauty of God's plan for salvation is that you do not have to join any church or other religious group (not even the LWs) in order to be saved. And now we can see why the Catholic Church was so keen to corrupt the beauty of the three baptisms into the fog of the trinity. It was so they could propagate the lie that only through them could you be saved, and further that without them you would fry. They deliberately short changed God's grace in order to exert more control on his flock, in order to abuse them more effectively for their benefit.
John said to the Pharisees who came to view his baptism:
9 Do not presume to say to yourselves: As a father we have Abraham. For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones (Matthew 3).
11 I, for my part, baptize you with water because of your repentance; but the one coming after me is stronger than I am, whose sandals I am not fit to take off. That one will baptize you people with holy spirit and with fire (Matthew 3).
John was baptising people in water into the 1EC, the first Elijah Covenant, which is a subcovenant of the Isaaic Church Covenant. This made them 'stones'. For stones are part of the building of a church, whereas Christians are part of the congregation of a church, which is the real building. These stones can then further water baptise other people to be sons of Isaac, by covenant, and sons of Isaac are sons of Abraham both genetically and by covenant. Everyone baptised into the ICC is also in the 1AC. The water baptism into the ICC is a commitment to follow the laws of the church. But that is also following your conscience if you believe in the church. Also once the true church loses its water baptism there is a small period before it become a false church when its water baptism actually puts people in the 1AC rather than the ICC. This would directly create children of Abraham who were not children also of Isaac. But to the Hebrew, a child of a child of Abraham is a child of Abraham
The Greek word for repentance is metanoia, which means after-thought or with-thought. So repentance is really regret for past mistakes. But those who wish to be water baptised should also confess their sins...
and people were baptized by him in the Jordan River, confessing [exomologew]
[literally to speak the same out.
In other words to speak your mind out, to spill the beans on yourself]
7 When he caught sight of many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming to the baptism, he said to them: You offspring of vipers, who has intimated to you to flee from the coming wrath?
8 So then produce fruit that befits repentance;
9 and do not presume to say to yourselves, 'As a father we have Abraham.' For I say to you that God is able to raise up children to Abraham from these stones.
10 Already the ax is lying at the root of the trees; every tree, then, that does not produce fine fruit is to be cut down and thrown into the fire.
11 I, for my part, baptize you with water because of your repentance; but the one coming after me is stronger than I am, whose sandals I am not fit to take off. That one will baptize you people with holy spirit and with fire. (Matthew 3 NWT)
The scripture does not say the John refused to baptise these Pharisees, these offspring of vipers. Neither does it say that he demanded to see fruits of repentance before he would agree to baptise them. But after having been baptised 'because of your repentance', not because of any be baptismal fruits of repentance and not because of any big public or private confession. They should exhibit fruits of that repentance in order to pass the ensuing baptism test and be sealed. Let us consider the example of little Zacchaeus, the tax collector from Jericho.
But having stood up Zacchaeus said to the Lord: Look!
The half of the [things] belonging of me, Lord, I am giving to the
poor [ones], and whatever [thing] from anyone I extorted-by-trickery I am restoring fourfold.
9 But Jesus said to him that today salvation has occurred in [dative] this house [not a physical house of Zacchaeus, not the genetic house of Zacchaeus, but the genetic house of Abraham!], because he also is a son of Abraham [this was a sealing into the FRC] (Luke 19).
Jesus did not say that a salvation baptism test had begun in this house. He said that salvation itself had occurred. So this was actually a sealing, the end of a baptism test. For Zacchaeus had produced all the fruits he need to produce of repentance for all of his past sins. And he added to that by giving half of the remainder of his substantial wealth to the poor. Zacchaeus must have already been in the 1AC (having the faith which drove him to climb up the tree to see Jesus), before he met Jesus. Indeed Jesus calls him a son of Abraham.
So let us be absolutely clear. All that is required for a water baptism is repentance. Restitution for past sins is not required. But if that is possible it certainly helps in passing the ensuing baptism test. So if you have stolen £50 from someone and have not yet returned it we would still baptize you if you required it. But we would very strongly advise you to pay that person back when your funds permit. So we always take the believers word on repentance at baptism. But after baptism if the believer breaks church law and gets a warning then repentance is only accepted if there is no comfortably achievable restitution route that could have been taken but has not been taken. Zacchaeus of Luke 19 is the example here. He could comfortably afford to make the restitution that he made.
Baptism involves a prayer and a blessing and is a private affair between the priest and the believer. So there is no public confession of sins. Confessing of sins is required. But it is not policed and does not have to be exhaustive. It is a matter for the conscience of the believer.
Well God forgives all past sin at baptism. So after baptism the repentant one is no longer regarded by God as being any of the above. So there is no need to introduce that brother to the church as a past adulterer or paedophile or axe murderer or nuclear terrorist. Once a person is baptised, his sin has gone. It is true that all of the above are serious dangers to the congregation and anyone else if the believer is not truly repentant. But we cannot judge that. And we must NOT prejudge him - even if he or she is on the sex offenders register. So ANY brother or sister joining the church could in fact have been any one of the above and all we can advise is that people bear that in mind. Generally people in a true church do not behave much better than people in the world. All confessions are private and confidential. The decision about what fruits of repentance to exhibit is taken by the believer not by the baptizing priest. However the priest can advise of course.
Sins prior to baptism are against one's conscience since one is not under church law. So it is a matter for the conscience of the believer as to what and to whom he confesses. If he chooses to confess his axe murdering to the police then good for him. If he chooses not to, then he has the Holy Spirit to placate. It is his decision and his decision alone according to his conscience for all sins against his conscience committed prior to baptism. The church only gets involved when a brother sins against church law.
The baptizer would advise people who had seriously broken the law to consider reporting themselves. He would not make that decision himself, since any confession is confidential. He might ask a registered sex offender if he agreed to have the information made known to the congregation. But would respect his wishes in that regard. The baptiser could ask if the information could be made available to the elders confidentially, who could agree with him to avoid situations likely to tempt him. But elders do speak to their wives and wives do speak to each other.
The situation is different with a disfellowshipped person who says he is repentant. The church would only accept that assertion on the Zaccheus principle that if he could comfortably afford to make restitution for his sin under church law then he should do it.
Any physically sick person who was cured by Jesus or cured by the apostles or cured by any person given the gifts of the spirit through the hands of the apostles was in fact baptised into the 1AC, the covenant of faith, at the same time that they were cured if not before. Jesus only cured those with faith...
He said to her:
Daughter, your faith has made you well. Go in peace, and be in good health from your grievous
sickness (Mark 5).
52 And Jesus said to him: Go, your faith has made you well. And immediately he recovered sight, and he began to follow him on the road (Mark 10).
28 After he had gone into the house, the blind men came to him, and
Jesus asked them: Do you have faith that I can do this? They answered him:
29 Then he touched their eyes, saying: According to your faith let it happen to you (Matthew 9).
20 And, look! a woman suffering twelve years from a flow of
blood came up behind and touched the fringe of his outer garment;
21 for she kept saying to herself: If I only touch his outer garment I shall get well [that is faith] (Matthew 9).
In fact those with faith can even save their own children, for Jesus resurrected Jairus' daughter on the faith of Jairus (Matthew 5 and Luke 8).
So John baptised people in water into the works of the Law of the first Christian church. These were not so much works that had to be done as works that had to be avoided, such as fornication, theft, idolatry etc. As we determined in section I32, every baptism is a cleanliness for entry into a covenant. So he who starts a baptism must also mediate a covenant. John the baptist started a water baptism, so he mediates a water baptism covenant. But the ICC is the water baptism system covenant for the entire Abrahamic system in which John lived. So John must mediate a subcovenant of the ICC. We call this subcovenant the First Elijah Covenant, since John was the first of 4 antitypical Elijah's all of whom started water baptisms into the 4 true Christian churches - see I45.
But the sons of the JAC, the covenant sons of Jacob are born again through a heavenly baptism at least until the greater miracle of water being turned into wine when the 1NC reserves, whilst still humans, having been married to Jesus in the ark in the air, will start baptising or start authorising the 2NCs to baptise the 2NC OMC (LRC) Benjamite Kings in holy spirit.
5 owing to no works in righteousness that we had performed, but according to his mercy he saved us through the bath that brought us to life and through the making of us new by holy spirit (Titus 3).
6 What has been born from the flesh is flesh, and what has been born from the spirit is spirit (John 3).
5 On hearing this, they got baptized into [eiV] the name of the Lord Jesus [the holy spirit baptism into the new covenant, the 1NC].
One cannot have the gifts of the spirit such as the powers to expel demons etc, unless one is in fact a spirit creature - see I22. So one must be born again before one can get these powers (and one must be sealed into the ARC in order to give those powers to another by the laying on of the hands). So the holy spirit baptism is being born again - see I12.
The mediator of all baptisms in holy spirit in the Abrahamic system was Jacob. He mediated the JAC, the spirit baptism covenant for the Abrahamic system. So in the case of the Abrahamic system, we are baptised into the name of the father (by faith) and into the name of the son (by water) and into the name of the grandson (by spirit).
The new covenant, mediated by Jesus, being a spirit baptism covenant is a subcovenant of the JAC, mediated by Jacob, the Abrahamic system covenant for sprit baptisms. The new covenant saints, who are all baptised in holy spirit from the heavens, being chosen by the angels, take on Jesus’ name via their marriage covenant, for wives take the names of their husbands:
30 We are members of his body (Ephesians
18 He is the head of the body, the congregation (Colossians 1).
23 Because a husband is head of his wife, as the Christ also is head of the congregation, he being a saviour of [this] body (Ephesians 5).
When the woman marries the man then she takes his name. She gets this name not because of her works, but because of her love actually. For example Michael Schumacher's wife may well be an awful driver, but she is nevertheless Mrs Schumacher, and she has this name not because of her driving ability, but because of their love.
Likewise, the betrothed of the Christ, have his name because of his love for them and their love for him, not because their works are so much to shout about, as his were. So now we see clearly the relationship between baptisms and covenants. For those baptised into the name of Lord Jesus in the scriptures above, are the bride of Christ, who are the covenanters of the first new covenant which he mediates. But this means that the New covenant saints collectively are Jesus’ wife, and they are his brothers individually, all being sons of God, and they are sons of the new covenant.
In fact baptism is the real method of procreation that has a future for mankind. And family genetics are a physicalisation of that process which we all understand through our experience of living in genetic families. So our family relationships such as our mothers, brothers, sisters, wives etc., all have analogues in our baptism ancestries. So now we at last can understand what Jesus was talking about in Matthew 12:
49 And extending his hand toward his disciples, he said: Look! My mother and my brothers! (Matthew 12).
His disciples were his mother as a group in the sense that as a group they were going to produce more brothers for him.
Being specific, the baptism into the name of Jesus is a cleansing of them for entrance into the New covenant. Once Jesus had made this covenant with his disciples, entrance for other saints took place at their first ‘communion’ which was their first Passover celebration, for ‘communion’ should only be celebrated once a year on the Passover day, when Jesus celebrated it. The point is that you can be cleansed for entrance into a covenant 6 months before you actually enter into it. The apostles were baptised in holy spirit over 3 years before they entered into the new covenant. This disconnection between cleansing and covenant entry only applies for spirit baptisms. A water baptism puts you in the ICC the minute that you get wet. It really is a triumph of self importance over gratitude to celebrate the New Covenant almost every day as one can today in St. Paul's Cathedral in London.
The baptism into Jesus’ name and into the names of all the mediators of subcovenants of the JAC is a sanctification with Holy Spirit:
In the course of events, while Apollos was in Corinth, Paul
went through the inland parts and came down to Ephesus, and found some
2 and he said to them: Did you receive holy spirit when you became believers? They said to him: Why, we have never heard whether there is a holy spirit.
3 And he said: In what, then, were you baptized? They said: In John's baptism.
4 Paul said: John baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people to believe in the one coming after him, that is, in Jesus.
5 On hearing this, they got baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus.
6 And when Paul laid his hands upon them, the holy spirit came upon them, and they began speaking with tongues and prophesying (Acts 19).
So the baptism into the name of the holy spirit is a further baptism, imparting a greater cleanliness than the baptism of repentance of John, which was the bath of the flesh in a river. One cannot receive holy spirit, that is have the gifts of the spirit, that is have the powers of the first Christian congregation, without first being baptised with the holy spirit, baptised in spirit.
21 That which corresponds to this is also now saving you, namely, baptism, not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the request made to God for a good conscience, through the resurrection of Jesus Christ (1 Peter 3).
16 For me to be a public servant of Christ Jesus to the nations, engaging in the holy work of the good news of God, in order that the offering, namely, these nations, might prove to be acceptable, it being sanctified with holy spirit (Romans 15).
13 For truly by one spirit we were all baptized into one body, whether Jews or Greeks, whether slaves or free, and we were all made to drink one spirit (1 Corinthians 12).
So the first Christian congregation contained those who were sanctified with holy spirit. This is the cleansing power of Jesus' blood, that is his blood as mediator of the first new covenant, the 1NC. All the mediators of covenants of the spirit are submediators of the JAC, the main covenant for spirit baptism for the sons of Abraham. The first Christian congregation contained these holy ones and together are a holy temple (the entire congregation of the water baptised ones and the spirit baptised ones) as explained by Paul:
Certainly, therefore, you are no longer strangers and alien
residents, but you are fellow citizens of the holy ones and are members of the
household of God,
20 and you have been built up upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, while Christ Jesus himself is the foundation cornerstone.
21 In whom the whole building, being harmoniously joined together, is growing into a holy temple for Jehovah.
22 In whom you, too, are being built up together into a place for God to inhabit by spirit (Ephesians 2).
But those in Christ, baptised into his name, are born again:
17 Consequently if anyone is in union with Christ, he is a new creation; the old things passed away, look! new things have come into existence (2 Corinthians 5).
So the baptism into the name of the Lord Jesus, is being born again - see I12. It turns the believer into a living stone in the spiritual temple. It is being sanctified with holy spirit, and is having your conscience made good, which is having your future sins forgiven for an indefinite period.
So the true chains of Mediators and of Covenants for the Law and the New Covenant (see I28) are:
The chain of Mediators of the ICC both for those under the law of Moses of the church of Judaism: God x Methuselah (Gabriel) x Noah x (John the baptist temporarily during the baptism test) x Isaac (ICC) x Physical Israel
The chain of salvation covenants for those under law was: CRC x 2BC x ICC
The chain of Mediators of the ICC both for those in he first true Christian church (TCC1) was: God x Methuselah (Gabriel) x Noah x Isaac (ICC) x John the baptist x TCC1
The chain of salvation covenants for those in TCC1 was: CRC x CBC x ICC x 1EC
The chain of mediators of the New Covenant: God x Michael (Jesus) x Adam x Jacob (JAC) x Jesus x 1NC saints
The chain of covenants of the New Covenant: ARC x ABC x JAC x 1NC
the law of Moses was not a salvation covenant. It was merely the law of the church of Judaism.
And a 1NC saint has a covenant with Jesus who has a covenant with Jacob (promised to Abraham via the AAP) who has a covenant with Adam who has a covenant with Michael who has a covenant with God.
So, the baptism into the name of Jesus, or any son of the JAC, is actually a baptism into the name of Jacob, the mediator of the covenant of the spirit for Abraham's children. For the blessing to be heavenly kings was through Isaac's seed, whereas the blessing for earthly life was through Isaac himself and through Abraham his father. The physical birth process of all of us declares how we shall be born spiritually. For all men are drawn out of the water (the name of Moses) when the waters split in their mother's womb and they are delivered by an outstretched hand, not of Moses, but of the midwife normally. But there is not only water at birth, there is also blood. The blood represents the life, which is the spirit. So here the two baptisms of the Christian church are being declared at every birth of every human baby.
Baptisms are well described in Paul’s letter to Titus:
5 Owing to no works in righteousness that we had performed, but
according to his mercy he saved us through the bath that brought us to life and
through the making of us new by holy spirit.
6 This [spirit] he poured out richly upon us through Jesus Christ our Saviour,
7 that, after being declared righteous by virtue of the undeserved kindness of that one, we might become heirs according to a hope of everlasting life (Titus 3).
The bath that brought 'us' (Paul and Titus) to life, is the water baptism into the name of Isaac, into the ICC, the blessing of which is a resurrection in a non adamic Isaaic body, hence ‘the bath that brought us to life’. The making of us new by holy spirit is the spirit baptism, which is being born again - see I12, which is the baptism into the name of a mediator of a spirit covenant, a subcovenant of the ARC. The righteous declaration in spirit is the gift of everlasting life, the end of the test of the baptism of the spirit, the sealing in spirit.
11 And yet that is what some of you were. But you have been washed clean [into the ICC], but you have been sanctified [into the JAC], but you have been declared righteous in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ [as a Christian into the CRC by obeying church law] and with the spirit [the character] of our God [into the ARC] (1 Corinthians 6).
Washed clean - is the baptism in water into the name of the
son, Isaac, the mediator of the ICC.
Sanctified - is the baptism into the name of the holy spirit, which is the baptism into the name of Jacob, the mediator of the JAC. This is the start of the test of the holy spirit baptism.
Declared righteous in the name of Jesus - is the successful completion of the test of the baptism in water under the authority of Jesus (i.e. in a true Christian church). This is being sealed in the flesh into the CRC.
Declared righteous in spirit - is the successful completion of the test of the baptism in holy spirit. This is being sealed in spirit into the ARC: This is also referred to as the completion of the baptism itself.
But you also hoped in him after you heard the word of truth,
the good news about your salvation. By means of him also, after you believed,
you were sealed with the promised holy spirit,
(This is the spirit promised in Acts 1 by Jesus and poured out at Pentecost in Acts 2)
14 which is a token in advance of our inheritance, for the purpose of releasing by a ransom [God's] own possession, to his glorious praise (Ephesians 1).
12 Happy is the man that keeps on enduring trial, because on becoming approved he will receive the crown of life, which Jehovah promised to those who continue loving him (James 1).
7 I have fought
the fine fight, I have run the course to the finish, I have observed the faith.
8 From this time on there is reserved for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will give me as a reward in that day, yet not only to me, but also to all those who have loved his manifestation. (2 Timothy 4 NWT)
The baptism into the name of the Holy Spirit is the start of the trial and the righteous decree in the spirit is the end of the trial. When you get everlasting life, you become eligible to join the next holy spirit, to become a part of the wife of the next true God. The holy spirit is grieved if ARC sealed people sin, because such people are as good as a part of the holy spirit - which as a composite is divine.
30 Also, do not be grieving God's holy spirit, with which you have been sealed for a day of releasing by ransom (Ephesians 4).
If you sin badly before you are sealed, the holy spirit can still dump you!
Now whichever covenant you start your spirit baptism in you end up either in the ARC or you lose your angel. Failing a spirit covenant test does not put you in Gehenna, you can still be saved by other covenants, so long as you have not tasted the fine word of God and powers of the coming system of things...
4 For it is impossible as regards those
who have once for all been enlightened, and who have tasted the heavenly free
gift, and who have become partakers of holy spirit,
5 and who have tasted the fine word of God and powers of the coming system of things,
6 but who have fallen away, to revive them again to repentance, because they impale the Son of God afresh for themselves and expose him to public shame. (Hebrews 6 NWT)
However spirit covenant failures can become possessed by demons since they have 2nd dead associated angels which is the precise condition of the sons of the DAC (the Demonic Angelic Covenant).
But if you pass then you enter the ARC, and you are washed in the blood of an everliving angel, Michael. For Paul says:
22 However, now, because you were set free from sin but
became slaves to God, you are having your fruit in the way of holiness, and the
end everlasting life.
23 For the wages sin pays is death, but the gift God gives is everlasting life by Christ Jesus our Lord (Romans 6).
14 how much more will the blood of the Christ, who through an everlasting spirit offered himself without blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works that we may render sacred service to [the] living God? (Hebrews 9).
11 And yet that is what some of you were. But you have been washed clean, but you have been sanctified, but you have been declared righteous in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ and with the spirit of our God (1 Corinthians 6).
The righteous decree in the spirit is the end of the spirit baptism. This is the point where one gets everlasting life. So the blood of Michael gives everlasting life, which is a completed spirit baptism, which is entry into the ARC, which entry is for ever and cannot be revoked. This is how Jesus becomes our eternal father.
6 For there has been a child born to us, there has been a son given to us, and the princely rule will come to be upon his shoulder. And his name will be called Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9).
The baptism into the name of Abraham occurs either through the angels due to faith into the 1AC - see I28, symbolised in Daniel 4 by the dew of the heavens, or through water baptism by men in which case it is also a baptism into the name of Isaac, through the ICC (or at the end of the life of a true church men baptise into the 1AC when they have lost their water baptism). The water baptism is a bath of the flesh, a baptism in water, which is a forgiveness of sins in the past. The symbolism is that a bath washes off dirt that has accumulated in the past. It results in the candidate having clean flesh before God. In other words his flesh is regarded as having not sinned in the past according to church law.
The sons of the 1AC is washed in the dew of the heavens (by the angels generally) and his flesh is regarded as no having sinned in the past according to his conscience..
We have seen that the baptism into the name of the holy spirit, is a sanctification of the spirit, into the JAC. It is a cleansing of your conscience, which represents your future motivation. So it is a forgiveness of your sins in the future until an unspecified time, which might be tomorrow or might be never. If you pass the baptism test and get sealed, then it is never. But the day you break your holy spirit baptism test by losing faith, is the day that your sins are no longer forgiven..
We have seen that the righteous decree in the spirit, is the permanent forgiveness of your sins in the future, it is the forgiveness of your sins forever, and is the completion of the sanctification in spirit. It is a sealing, passed OK by God for everlasting life.
Now there is one baptism left which we haven’t yet covered and that is the completion of the washing in water, the permanent cleanliness of the flesh. This being the entrance into the CRC in the case of a test with the law of a true religion and the entrance into the FRC in the case of a test with the law of one's conscience. Both of these sealings are referred to as the righteous decree in the flesh. Elizabeth and Zechariah, John the baptist's parents, had this:
6 They both were righteous before God because of walking blamelessly in accord with all the commandments and legal requirements of Jehovah [which is only possible if you keep the faith] (Luke 1).
13 For the hearers of law are not the ones righteous before God, but the doers of law will be declared righteous [due to their faith that enables them to continue being doers of the law] (Romans 2).
20 Therefore by works of law no flesh will be declared righteous before him [we are declared righteous through faith not through works, but the faith enables us to do the works], for by law is the accurate knowledge of sin (Romans 3).
The fleshly baptism test is one of works of the law of your conscience or the law of your church. But the righteous decree in the flesh, the end of that baptism test, comes made not because of works but because of faith. It was a baptism of works perfected by faith. Elizabeth and Zechariah were declared righteous not by works but by faith. However it was their faith that enables them to keep doing the righteous works. Whereas the baptism into the name of Jesus, the 1NC baptism and all spirit baptisms are baptisms of faith perfected by works. In this second case you need to keep the faith in order to be saved, but keeping faith will be manifested by works. So your works perfect your faith.
When one gets a righteous decree in the flesh, then one is guaranteed a resurrection into the Kingdom of God. One has got a permanent entry Visa from God's Kingdom ambassador Abraham. One is Abraham's son by the 1AC irrevocably, and that makes one a son of the FRC. This is true for those who are Isaac's son irrevocably and therefore sons of the CRC (for they are sons of the 1AC and the FRC as well since Isaac was the son of Abraham and since Methuselah was the grandson of Melchizdek. The forgiveness resulting from the righteous decree in the flesh is a forgiving of sins until your resurrection. For that is sufficient to get one into the Kingdom of God.
Those with a genuine but misinformed faith in God, who are baptised from heaven into the 1AC but who never join the true church are sealed for the blessing of the FRC by a washing in the blood of Melchizedek, the Master Covenanter and Validation Sacrifice of the FRC.
|Master Mediator (Ransomer)||Melchizedek||Gabriel||Michael|

In summary the entry into a baptism test is a baptism, the passing of a baptism test is another baptism, a sealing, a righteous declaration. The whole process of the entry, the test and the completion of the test should not be regarded as one giant baptism. It is two baptisms with a test between them. And if you fail the baptism test in the case of a spirit baptism you end up losing your chance to be an angel in this system (except perhaps for the 2NC OMC Benjamite Kings?), whereas if you fail a water baptism test you end up back where you started before you took the test (thrown out of the church) and can then retake the test after 7 months outside the church (if there is time).
The 7 logically possible extents of forgiveness of sins, from a temporal
standpoint with respect to baptism date are:
Forgiveness of all sins in the past
2. Forgiveness of all sins in the past and until some specified future date
3. Forgiveness of all sins in the past and until time indefinite (a hidden date, a date which has not yet been specified and may never be specified)
4. Forgiveness of all sins forever
5. Forgiveness of all sins from the baptism/present until some specified future date
6. Forgiveness of all sins from the present until time indefinite
7. Forgiveness of all sins from the present onwards forever
water baptism washes off dirt from the past and so is the forgiveness of all
sins in the past (1)
The completed water baptism, the righteous decree in the flesh, is the forgiveness of all sins until the specified date of Armageddon (for this date see U16), since such forgiveness gives you entrance into the Kingdom (2).
The sanctification in holy spirit, being born again, is the gift of a clean conscience, which is the forgiveness of all sins from the present until time indefinite (6).
The completed spirit baptism, the sealing in sprit, the righteous decree in the spirit, is the forgiveness of all future sins forever (7).
this it is apparent that having been sanctified in holy spirit, one has to be water baptised in
order to have all of ones sins, both past and future forgiven. Water baptism is
about past sins, spirit baptism is about future sins. So those who are sanctified outside the true congregation
must join it by water baptism, or they fail their spirit baptism test. That is why God permits no sanctification in
spirit unless there is a true religion in existence to be water baptised into.
John, the baptist began the water baptism of the first true Christian religion
at the Pentecost on 29Sivan10, before the Jewish call into the 1NC on
29Heshvan29, the last day of the marriage feast of Cana.
Entrance into all true Christian religions is through water baptism - see I45.
False churches have baptisms that simply do nothing. Another way of saying this
is that you cannot be a son of Jacob, a son of the JAC, without being a son of
Isaac, a son of the ICC. Likewise, you cannot be a son of Isaac, a son of the
ICC, without being a son of Abraham, a son of the 1AC, the covenant faith.

6 This is he that came by means of water and blood, Jesus
Christ. Not with the water only, but with the water and the blood. And the
spirit is that which is bearing witness, because the spirit is the truth.
7 For there are 3 witness bearers,
8 the spirit [sons of the JAC] and the water [sons of the ICC] and the blood [sons of the 1AC, validated by Isaac' human blood], and the three are in agreement [all part of the same overall salvation process, the journey into the ARC] (1 John 5).
5 ...he saved us through the bath of regeneration and of
renovation of the holy spirit (KI).
6 This he poured out richly upon us through Jesus Christ our saviour,
7 that, after being declared righteous by the undeserved kindness of that one, we might become heirs according to a hope of everlasting life (Titus 3).
16 He was made manifest in flesh, was declared righteous in spirit (1 Timothy 3).
2 For the law of that spirit which
gives life in union with Christ Jesus has set you free from the law of sin and
3 For, there being an incapability on the part of the Law, while it was weak through the flesh, God, by sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and concerning sin, condemned sin in the flesh,
4 that the righteous requirement of the Law might be fulfilled in us who walk, not in accord with the flesh, but in accord with the spirit. (Romans 8 NWT)
2 To the temporary residents scattered about in Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bythinia, to the ones chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the father, with sanctification by the spirit, for the purpose of their being obedient and sprinkled with the blood of Jesus Christ. May undeserved kindness and peace be increased to you (1 Peter 1).
28 For he is not a Jew who is one on the outside, nor is
circumcision that which is on the outside upon the flesh.
29 But he is a Jew who is one on the inside, and [his] circumcision is that of the heart by spirit, and not by a written code. The praise of that one comes, not from men, but from God (Romans 2).
Moreover, those whom he foreordained are the ones he also called, and those whom he called are the ones he also declared to be
righteous. Finally those whom he declared righteous are the ones he also
glorified (Romans 8).
16 The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not a sharing in the blood of the Christ? The loaf which we break, is it not a sharing in the body of the Christ? (1 Corinthians 10).
Yes it is in the literal meaning. No it isn't in the symbolic meaning, for this is another Binary Question. So there a cups which we drink and bless which are not the blood of the Christ - see U15
7 However, if we are walking in the light as he himself is in the light, we do have a sharing with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin (1 John 1).
For if the blood of goats and of bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who have been
defiled sanctifies to the extent of cleanness of the flesh,
14 how much more will the blood of the Christ, who through an everlasting spirit offered himself without blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works that we may render sacred service to [the] living God? (Hebrews 9).
Clearly in the case of the new covenant, the covenanters are washed clean from sin, they are sanctified by Jesus' blood, so they are baptised in the blood of the Mediator Jesus Christ.
The reason that the blood of bulls under law sanctified the sons of Israel to the extent of cleanness of the flesh is that it symbolised a washing in the blood of Moses, and he was that clean. Let us make this more plain. Every animal sacrifice made under the law of Moses, where blood was poured out, symbolically represented a washing in Moses blood. Moses blood cleansed one sin at a time and could be applied as many times as you sinned and offered the correct sacrifice at the correct time to a priest.
It is important to realise in the case of the law, that the blood of bulls or goats or lambs, literally, does not take away any sin
4 It is not possible for the blood of bulls and of goats to take sins
5 Hence when he comes into the world he says: Sacrifice and offering you did not want, but you prepared a body for me (Hebrews 10).
In other words the blood of an animal does not affect the status of human blood, which represents our life, in any way. One cannot clean a human with the blood of an animal. Just as when a believer is baptised in a river, the water does not actually do anything, it merely symbolises the type of baptism. At baptism, the priest, who is baptising, is conferring a cleanliness on the believer. This cleanliness is the cleanliness possessed by the mediator of the covenant, and the cleanliness comes from the mediator's blood. By the Dirty Water Principle (you cannot clean dishes with dirty water), the priest must himself possess the degree of cleanliness that he is conferring on to the candidate. This in general means that the priest will be washed in the blood of the mediator too.
11 However, when Christ came as a high
priest of the good things that have come to pass, through the greater and more
perfect tent not made with hands, that is, not of this creation,
12 he entered, no, not with the blood of goats and of young bulls, but with his own blood, once for all time into the holy place and obtained an everlasting deliverance [for us].
13 For if the blood of goats and of bulls and the ashes of a heifer sprinkled on those who have been defiled sanctifies to the extent of cleanness of the flesh,
14 how much more will the blood of the Christ, who through an everlasting spirit offered himself without blemish to God, cleanse our consciences from dead works that we may render sacred service to [the] living God?
15 So that is why he is a mediator of a new covenant, in order that, because a death has occurred for [their] release by ransom from the transgressions under the former covenant [whereas the death of adamic Moses could not achieve this. Jesus paid for all sin under law with his non adamic human body, and ended church of Judaism as a true church with his sacrifice by Caiaphas. For once you have sacrificed the Christ on the altar, there is very little point in offering up a bull or a goat as a sequel], the ones who have been called might receive the promise of the everlasting inheritance.
16 For where there is a covenant, the death of the bequeather [diaqemenoj] [Liddell has the devisor by will, the testator] needs to be furnished.
17 For a covenant is valid over dead [validation sacrifices, ransomers, bequeathers], since it is not in force at any time whilst the bequeather is living.
18 Consequently neither was the former [covenant] inaugurated without blood [the blood of the bull sacrificed my Moses on mount Sinai at Pentecost 1513Sivan7].
19 For when every commandment according to the Law had been spoken by Moses to all the people, he took the blood of the young bulls and of the goats with water and scarlet wool and hyssop and sprinkled the book itself and all the people,
20 saying: This is the blood of the covenant that God has laid as a charge upon you.
21 And he sprinkled the tent and all the vessels of the public service likewise with the blood.
22 Yes, nearly all things are cleansed with blood according to the Law, and unless blood is poured out no forgiveness takes place.
5 After that he sent young men of the sons of Israel and they offered up burnt offerings
and sacrificed bulls as sacrifices, as communion sacrifices to Jehovah.
6 Then Moses took half the blood and put it in bowls, and half the blood he sprinkled upon the altar.
7 Finally he took the book of the covenant and read it in the ears of the people. Then they said: All that Jehovah has spoken we are willing to do and be obedient.
8 So Moses took the blood and sprinkled it upon the people and said: Here is the blood of the covenant that Jehovah has concluded with you as respects all these words (Exodus 24).
23 Therefore it was
necessary that the typical representations of the things in the heavens should
be cleansed by these means, but the heavenly things themselves with sacrifices
that are better than such sacrifices [so
the blood of goats and bulls cleansed some typical representations, which were
the vessels of service, the tent, the book of the law, and all the people].
24 For Christ entered, not into a holy place made with hands, which is a copy of the reality, but into heaven itself, now to appear before the person of God for us.
25 Neither is it in order that he should offer himself often, as indeed the high priest enters into the holy place from year to year with blood not his own.
26 Otherwise, he would have to suffer often from the founding of the world. But now he has manifested himself once for all time at the conclusion of the systems of things to put sin away through the sacrifice of himself.
27 And as it is reserved for men to die once for all time, but after this a judgment,
28 so also the Christ was offered once for all time to bear the sins of many; and the second time that he appears it will be apart from sin and to those earnestly looking for him for [their] salvation. (Hebrews 9 NWT)
Yes, the blood of bulls and goats can cleanse some inanimate temple instruments. But it cannot clean a man. The blood of bulls and goats is itself a typical representation of the true blood of the law covenant which is always the blood of the mediator of that covenant. So the blood of the law covenant was the blood of Moses. He was adamic. So his blood could not cleanse/forgive all sins in the past or all sins in the future or all sin to time indefinite. Neither could it cleanse/forgive a capital sin. But apparently it could forgive one non capital sin such as was forgiven under law by an animal sacrifice (a goat).
So each time an animal was offered up under law Moses' blood was applied to the one having given the sacrifice to the priest. That is where the forgiveness came from.
The sons of Israel were registered into the army at 20 years old (at their 20th Rosh Hashana)...
3 from 20 years old upward, everyone going out to the army in Israel. You should register them according to their armies, you and Aaron (Numbers 1).
Hence the penalty upon Israel for murmuring as a result of the spying report was...
27 How long will this evil assembly have this
murmuring that they are carrying on against me? I have heard the murmurings of
the sons of Israel that they are murmuring against me.
28 Say to them, 'As I live, is the utterance of Jehovah, if I shall not do to you just that way as you have spoken in my ears!
29 In this wilderness your carcasses will fall, yes, all your registered/appointed/numbered ones of all your number from 20 years old upward, you who have murmured against me.
30 As for you, you will not enter into the land in which I lifted up my hand [in oath] to reside with you, except Caleb the son of Jephunneh and Joshua the son of Nun.
31 'And your little ones who you said would become plunder, these also I shall certainly bring in, and they will indeed know the land that you have rejected.
32 But the carcasses of you yourselves will fall in this wilderness. (Numbers 14 NWT)
10 Consequently Jehovah's anger blazed on that day so
that he swore, saying,
11 'The men who came up out of Egypt from 20 years old upward will not see the soil of which I have sworn to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, because they have not followed me wholly,
12 except Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite and Joshua the son of Nun, because they have followed Jehovah wholly.'
13 So Jehovah's anger blazed against Israel and he made them wander about in the wilderness 40 years, until all the generation that was doing evil in the eyes of Jehovah came to their end. (Numbers 32 NWT)
But 20 years old was not the time when each child of Jacob was unknowingly baptised into the ICC and came under the law of Moses, which maintained that baptism. They entered the law at their first Passover aged 11, because Adam entered the garden aged 11 and Jesus entered the temple to question the Pharisees aged 11 and temple builders are commissioned aged 11 counting from some kind of baptism. Paul said...
1 Now I do not want you to be ignorant, brothers, that
our forefathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea
2 and all got baptized into Moses by means of the cloud [into the ICC] and of the sea [into the law Moses];
3 and all ate the same spiritual food [Manna]
4 and all drank the same spiritual drink. For they used to drink from the spiritual rock-mass that followed them, and that rock-mass meant the Christ (1 Corinthians 10 NWT).
One could be forgiven for thinking that Moses was the mediator of a salvation covenant (as the LWs once thought). But the law of Moses offered no salvation. It only offered condemnation or lack of condemnation. Paul explains this in a tortuously convoluted way in Romans 3:
19 Now we know that all the things the Law says it
addresses to those under the Law, so that every mouth may be stopped and all the
world may become liable to God for punishment.
20 Therefore by works of law no flesh will be declared righteous before him, for by law is the accurate knowledge of sin.
21 But now apart from law God's righteousness has been made manifest, as it is borne witness to by the Law and the Prophets;
22 yes, God's righteousness through the faith in Jesus Christ, for all those having faith. For there is no distinction.
23 For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,
24 and it is as a free gift that they are being declared righteous by his undeserved kindness through the release by the ransom [paid] by Christ Jesus.
25 God set him forth as an offering for propitiation through faith in his blood. This was in order to exhibit his own righteousness, because he was forgiving the sins that occurred in the past
26 while God was exercising forbearance; so as to exhibit his own righteousness in this present season, that he might be righteous even when declaring righteous the man that has faith in Jesus.
27 Where, then, is the boasting? It is shut out. Through what law? That of works? No indeed, but through the law of faith.
28 For we reckon that a man is declared righteous by faith apart from works of law.
29 Or is he the God of the Jews only? Is he not also of people of the nations? Yes, of people of the nations also,
30 if truly God is one, who will declare circumcised people righteous as a result of faith and uncircumcised people righteous by means of their faith.
31 Do we, then, abolish law by means of our faith? Never may that happen! On the contrary, we establish law. (Romans 3 NWT)
All of that legal spaghetti is saying that works of law does not get you a righteous decree but works of faith do. Whereas in Hebrews Paul says...
13 For the hearers of law are not the ones righteous before God, but the doers of law will be declared righteous. (Romans 2 NWT)
Which says that doers of the law will be declared righteous. Yes indeed they will. But not due to the law that they are doing, but due to the faith they have in God which motivates them to obey his law.
So the law was not the salvation covenants for the flesh of those under law. The ICC was that covenant. If you kept the law and if you performed works of faith, then you passed your ICC test and were sealed in the CBC.
So every child of Israel at their true Bar Mitzvah or Bat Mitzvah at their first Passover aged 11 by Hebrew reckoning, was baptised into the ICC without knowing it and entered into the law of Moses. Paul describes this pair of events in the case of the entire nation crossing the Red sea, as being baptised into Moses by the cloud and the sea. The sea would provide a physical cleansing for entering into the law of Moses and the cloud would provide the forgiveness of sins in the past for entering into the ICC.
So Jesus (Immanuel) at his first Passover having reached the grand old age of 11, would have been baptised into the ICC and entered in the law of Moses before he went to question the Pharisees in the temple.
41 Now his parents were accustomed to go from year to
year to Jerusalem for the festival of the Passover.
42 And when he became of years 12, they went up according to the custom of the festival
43 and completed the days. But when they were returning, the boy Jesus remained behind in Jerusalem, and his parents did not notice it.
44 Assuming that he was in the company travelling together, they covered a day's distance and then began to hunt him up among the relatives and acquaintances.
45 But, not finding him, they returned to Jerusalem, making a diligent search for him.
46 Well, after 3 days they found him in the temple, sitting in the midst of the teachers and listening to them and questioning them.
47 But all those listening to him were in constant amazement at his understanding and his answers.
48 Now when they saw him they were astounded, and his mother said to him: Child, why did you treat us this way? Here your father and I in mental distress have been looking for you.
49 But he said to them: Why did you have to go looking for me? Did you not know that I must be in the [affairs] of my Father?
50 However, they did not grasp the saying that he spoke to them. (Luke 2 NWT)
Jesus was born on 2Heshvan21 BC. So he became 1 year old on 1Tishri1 BC and 2 years old on 1Tishri1 AD and 12 years old on 11Tishri1. Temple commissioning to inauguration is always 22½ years. So Jesus was commissioned to build the temple of TCC1 on 10Tishri2 (2NC first fruits) and the temple was inaugurated during the 8 days from 33Nisan16 (receive Holy Spirit) - 33Nisan23 (Thomas recognises Jesus' resurrected body). However the Greek does not say when he became 12 years old by Hebrew reckoning. It says when he became of years 12. These could well be sacred years, since this account is about Jesus entering into Moses having been commissioned to build the temple. He became 1 sacred year old on 1Nisan1 BC and 2 sacred years old on 1Nisan1 AD and 12 sacred years old on 11Nisan1 AD. So this Passover was 11Nisan14, the first Passover after Jesus became 11 years old by Hebrew reckoning (rather than Greek or sacred reckoning), the first Passover after he was commissioned to build the temple of TCC1.
Under law, when the priest poured out the blood of this sacrificial animal, then that man would again be washed in Moses' blood, having his flesh cleaned for a further time. One can have as many baths of the flesh as one likes. So Moses' blood did not give salvation. It appears to have given sin by sin forgiveness. For in any true Christian congregation one can only be rebaptised by men twice after the first baptism (For Elijah instructed the 4 water jars were poured over the sacrifice 3x in 1Kings18 - see U271aq). But as regards the cleansing of the spirit, which was the cleaning power of Michael's blood, this can only happen once, for it is a circumcision of the heart, and one cannot circumcise a man twice (ask any male Jew or Muslim)!
Moses Blood - forgiveness of one sin - as many time as you sin and bring the
correct sacrifice on the correct day
ICC blood - forgiveness of all sins in the past - 3x max (excluding Jubilee restorations).
JAC blood - forgiveness of future sins until time indefinite - 1x that is all.
When Jesus turned up to be baptised being inhabited by the spirit of Immanuel, he was already under law but since the ICC ran dry on 24Chislev10 (4½ years of Daniel12 before 29Sivan10, when John the baptist was baptised from heaven as Elijah1 - see U152, and see U42), his flesh was not clean.
Jesus was washed Isaac's blood by John the baptist, who later became the validation sacrifice for Isaac. But John wasn't altogether convinced about this idea:
Then Jesus came from Galilee to the Jordan to John, in order to be
baptized by him.
14 But the latter tried to prevent him, saying: I am the one needing to be baptized by you, and are you coming to me?
15 In reply Jesus said to him: Let it be, this time, for in that way it is suitable for us to carry out all that is righteous. Then he quit preventing him (Matthew 3).
At first sight this looks like an operating theatre being washed by a toilet brush (however nothing could be further from the truth). But this procedure did cleanse Jesus; flesh and provide him with entry into the ICC. Jesus himself said that this was necessary in order that 'all that is righteous' was carried out.
So the Jesus, called Immanuel, who entered the ICC aged 11 and then fell out of it on 24Chislev10, with the rest of Israel, was raptured at his baptism aged 30 into the ark, when his body was taken by Michael, who came down from heaven - see Intro16. The point is that John's baptism was taking over from the law as the method of entry for the sons of Israel into the ICC. For John said to the Pharisees and to the crowds:
Therefore he began to say to the crowds coming out to be
baptized by him: You offspring of vipers, who has intimated to you to flee from
the coming wrath?
8 Therefore produce fruits that befit repentance. And do not start saying within yourselves, 'As a father we have Abraham.' For I say to you that God has power to raise up children to Abraham from these stones (Luke 3).
He was not talking here about genetic fatherhood, but rather about covenant fatherhood through the ICC, since those baptised were 1EC stones, dead stones, dead building blocks of the temple of the true religion, true but not yet born again Christians. Actually some of them may have been living stones, sons of the JAC in the first hour call of the parable of the vineyard. A son of the 1AC is a son of the ICC. And any son of Isaac must also be a son of Abraham, so a son of the ICC is a son of the 1AC. So John was actually raising up children of the ICC, but Isaac was a son of Abraham, so he was raising up children to Abraham, more Isaacs!
So John was telling the religious leaders and in fact all of Israel that they were no longer able to raise up children to Abraham through the ICC by means of the law. He now had that power, through his baptism, both for the 1AC and the ICC. In fact the law itself was still able to provide 1AC entrance on 29Sivan10 (the Pentecost), when John started baptising people. But the Pharisees, since they were hypocrites who could not keep the law, would have fallen out of the 1AC long before they came to see John!
This is the sacred secret that has been hidden by the mistranslation 'in the name of the father and of the son and the of holy spirit', rather than the true translation 'into the name of the father and of the son and of the holy spirit'. It is the basis of all salvation and it has been hidden from mankind's eyes by the Roman Catholic Church...
13 Woe to you Scribes and Pharisees, Hypocrites! Because you shut up the kingdom of the heavens before men. For you yourselves do not go in, neither do you permit those on their way in to go in (Matthew 23).
Definition: A Human priest is a man who is clean to carry out a baptism
Any priesthood which is clean to carry out a baptism is also clean to maintain and to terminate a baptism, in accordance with God's law.
Definition: A Baptism of a believer by a priest into the name of a mediator of a covenant with God, is a 'washing' of that person in the blood of that mediator.
Such a washing imparts to the believer the cleanliness of the mediator. So the believer has his sins forgiven to an extent determined by the cleansing power of the blood of the mediator. The priest himself must have already be so baptised of course.
Definition: A Validation Sacrifice of a System covenant, is a person who ransoms the System Mediator of that covenant.
The purpose of a validation sacrifice is to provide a temporary blessing to the System Mediator which holds until the permanent blessing resulting from the permanent blessing from the Blessing Mediator which he received from the ransom of the Master Mediator of the Master Covenant can be applied to the believer.
Definition: The Blood of a covenant is the blood of the validation sacrifice for that covenant.
A mediator of a covenant is himself washed in the blood of the validation sacrifice, the blood of the covenant. So that when those who enter the covenant through him are washed in his blood, they get the cleanliness of the blood of the covenant. The mediator mediates a washing in the blood of the covenant through a washing in his blood which is itself washed in the blood of the validation sacrifice for the covenant, the ransomer for the mediator. So the sprinkling of the blood of the covenant of the law on the people by Moses, and passing of the cup of the blood of the covenant by Jesus, both symbolise the mediator washing the covenanters in the blood of the validation sacrifice.
As mentioned above, in the Law, the blood of an animal was entirely symbolic, as is the wine in the case of the New covenant. Jews and Christians were not actually washed in Bulls blood or in Bordeaux, they are washed in Moses' Blood and in Jesus' blood. In the case of the law, when the blood of the animal was poured out, then the blood of Moses was applied to the sinner.
So we can now understand the relationship between baptisms and covenants, which lay masked by this deliberate mistranslation of Matthew 28:19, a mistranslation which supported the trinity doctrine.
7 Happy are those whose lawless deeds have been pardoned, and
whose sins have been covered.
8 Happy is the man whose sin Jehovah will by no means take into account (Romans 4).
Happy is the one whose revolt is pardoned, whose sin is
2 Happy is the man to whose account Jehovah does not put error, and in whose spirit there is no deceit (Psalm 32).
The first man is happy because he is clean in the flesh, his dead works of the past are forgiven, his sins that he has already physically committed are wiped out. The second man is happy because all his sins in the past and for an indefinite period in the future are forgiven and pre-forgiven, for God has given him a clean conscience, so that he has no consciousness of sin. Paul explains this cryptically:
4 For I am not conscious of anything against myself. Yet by this I am not proved righteous, but he that examines me is Jehovah (1 Corinthians 4).
The literal meaning was that Paul was not aware of any sin which he had committed which would be sufficiently grave that there should be an accusation brought against him which would have disqualified him from being an elder. He did not mean that he was a sinless man. For he himself admits:
19 For the good that I wish, I do not do, but the bad that I do not wish is what I practice (Romans 7).
But cryptically and unwittingly, for these words are inspired, Paul is saying that the one who is washed clean in the blood of Jesus has a clean conscience, actually from all sin, for he knows that although he does sin, Jehovah has already discounted this in his case. This is a forgiveness of sin until time indefinite (which could be tomorrow or could be never). However this does not mean that he will be declared righteous, which is the baptism into the name of the holy spirit, for this is his sealing, and he may never progress to this point if he loses faith whilst under test, like Adam did. If he does keep his faith however, then he will be sealed, which is the permanent forgiveness of all future sin. This is the love of God, for he is saying to such a man: OK, I am taking you on, and I will never expel you from my school, and in my school you will have your spirit trained and trained until you become a sinless man as was the Christ, until you have the Christ-like character with your own peculiar personality of course. Furthermore however long it takes in your case, that is how long I will continue the training for you. That is true love.
