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?
We could have...
1. Father = Jehovah, Son = Jesus
2. Father = Abraham, Son = Isaac
3. Father = Isaac, Son = Jacob
In the case of option 1, a baptism into the name of Jehovah would result in
divinity so that is not what Jesus meant since he gave the commission to the
disciples before he died and became a God.
In the case of option 2, although Abraham is indeed the father of all with faith through the 1AC, these baptisms are done by the angels in heaven not by men (normally), since the sons of the 1AC do not in general find the true church and go on to become sons of the ICC. However when a true church loses its water baptism then there is a small period before it becomes a false church when it actually water baptises people into the 1AC.
So Jesus meant option 3 if the church had a water baptism and option 2 if it did not in which case those baptised into the 1AC by the church that had lost its water baptism would have to be baptised again into the next true church in order to becomes sons of Isaac.
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, which is the baptism into the name of the holy spirit.
Looking at this in more detail...
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).
This father cannot be God because he himself says:
8 I am Jehovah. That is my name, and to no one else shall I give my own glory, neither my praise to graven images (Isaiah 42).
7 For a man ought not to have his head covered, as he is God's image and glory, but the woman is man's glory (1 Corinthians 11).
We are God's glory and so we exhibit God's glory as Jesus did and does and as the Holy Spirit does, for he is the glory of his father and she is the glory of her husband who is God. But none of these takes God's glory in the sense that they represent that it is their own glory. Moses made this mistake once...
10 After that Moses and Aaron called the congregation together
before the crag, and he proceeded to say to them: Hear, now, you rebels! Is it from this crag that we shall bring out water for
11 With that Moses lifted his hand up and struck the crag with his rod twice, and much water began to come out, and the assembly and their beasts of burden began to drink.
12 Later Jehovah said to Moses and Aaron: Because you did not show faith in me to sanctify me before the eyes of the sons of Israel, therefore you will not bring this congregation into the land that I shall certainly give them (Numbers 20).
Moses and Aaron failed to give the glory of the works that God did through them to God. Taking God's glory is blasphemy.
So if the reader or the writer decided that they were baptised into the name of Jehovah himself, they effectively declare themselves to be equivalent to God in reputation. This is blasphemy. Except in the case of Jesus who has actually been baptised into the name of Jehovah!
Plainly it is fine to be baptised in the name of Jehovah, and we all are, but it is impossible to be baptised into God's own name unless we get the name that Jesus got. Now here is the wisdom of a certain 16 year old sister, who got this huge understanding from Jehovah. Because really what is the name that is above every other name? Not 'a' name, but 'the' name. Well it is 'Jehovah'. So Jesus was baptised into Godís name when he died. That makes him a God, a God to be worshipped. The Holy Spirit was the priest for this baptism. It is the greatest of all of our understandings. Jesus is God, a mighty God, a God to be worshipped, like Jehovah. But he is not almighty God. He has been elevated from a creation to a true God. He has also given up his angelic body for ransoming purposes and is now resident in a spirit body like God's spirit body, presumably somewhat different from an angelic body. This is a big understanding and we are not going any further with it here. We have enough to get through to you as it is. But we do come from a family of Gods, and our destiny is to be Gods, yes, Gods like Jehovah - see I27.
Also, I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world and I am coming to you. Holy Father, watch over
them on account of your own name which you have given me, in order that they may be one
just as we are.
12 When I was with them I used to watch over them on account of your own name which you have given me; and I have kept them, and not one of them is destroyed except the son of destruction, in order that the scripture might be fulfilled (John 17).
Jesus said this on the Thursday Night, 33Nisan14, just before he went into the
garden of Gethsemane to be betrayed by Judas. This shows that Jesus took Jehovah's name,
having been promised it when he made the ARC with God and having validated that
covenant when he died on the stake. He also left
the world when Nisan 14 began and went into the heart of the earth for 3 days and
3 nights (which means the centre of the organisation of God - see U158). This is why Jesus
said: I am no longer in the world. His ministry had ended.
Another reason that 'the father' cannot be God is that baptism is a
cleanliness for entrance into a covenant with God mediated by a mediator. But a
mediator is himself a covenanter with God, and God cannot have a
covenant with himself (and therefore mediate with himself). Paul declares this: 20 Now there is no mediator where only one person is concerned,
but God is only one (Galatians 3). So the Father cannot be God, and the above is of course a
great proof that Jesus is not God. So who is this Father into whose name we are
all baptised? Well it is Father Abraham, the patriarch of the Abrahamic
system, father of the sons of the 1AC! 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). 16
...He is the father of us all, 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 Muslim 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 achieve through faith
by all the sons of Abraham through faith. These are the people who exhibit the
faith in God that Abraham had and thereby are 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, not his physical family. 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 Father that Jesus disciples
baptise people into through water baptism is in fact Isaac.
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).
Another reason that 'the father' cannot be God is that baptism is a cleanliness for entrance into a covenant with God mediated by a mediator. But a mediator is himself a covenanter with God, and God cannot have a covenant with himself (and therefore mediate with himself). Paul declares this:
20 Now there is no mediator where only one person is concerned, but God is only one (Galatians 3).
So the Father cannot be God, and the above is of course a great proof that Jesus is not God. So who is this Father into whose name we are all baptised?
Well it is Father Abraham, the patriarch of the Abrahamic system, father of the sons of the 1AC!
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).
...He is the father of us all,
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 Muslim 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 achieve through faith by all the sons of Abraham through faith.

In fact Abraham's physical family tree is God's giant parable for salvation.

All these 4 covenants are subcovenants of the ICC. So the Father that Jesus disciples baptise people into through water baptism is in fact Isaac.
What kind of baptism puts you into the 1AC, the covenant which does not involve you joining any church or religion? Abraham himself had his faith counted as righteousness before he was circumcised...
He now brought him outside and said: Look up, please, to the heavens and count
the stars, if you are possibly able to count them. And he went on to say to him:
So your seed will become.
6 And he put faith in Jehovah; and he proceeded to count it to him as righteousness (Genesis 15).
That being so, what shall we say about Abraham our forefather according to
2 If, for instance, Abraham were declared righteous as a result of works, he would have ground for boasting; but not with God.
3 For what does the scripture say? Abraham exercised faith in Jehovah, and it was counted to him as righteousness.
4 Now to the man that works the pay is counted, not as an undeserved kindness, but as a debt.
5 On the other hand, to the man that does not work but puts faith in him who declares the ungodly one righteous, his faith is counted as righteousness.
6 Just as David also speaks of the happiness of the man to whom God counts righteousness apart from works:
7 Happy are those whose lawless deeds have been pardoned [1AC - see I29] and whose sins have been covered [2AC/ICC];
8 happy is the man whose sin Jehovah will by no means take into account [3AC/JAC].
9 Does this happiness, then, come upon circumcised people or also upon uncircumcised people? For we say: His faith was counted to Abraham as righteousness.
10 Under what circumstances, then, was it counted? When he was in circumcision or in uncircumcision? Not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision.
11 And he received a sign, namely, circumcision, as a seal of the righteousness by the faith he had while in his uncircumcised state, that he might be the father of all those having faith while in uncircumcision, in order for righteousness to be counted to them;
12 and a father of circumcised offspring, not only to those who adhere to circumcision, but also to those who walk orderly in the footsteps of that faith while in the uncircumcised state which our father Abraham had.
13 For it was not through law that Abraham or his seed had the promise that he should be heir of a world, but it was through the righteousness by faith (Romans 4)
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).
Putting this whole jigsaw together. 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 it becomes the true faith, by finding and joining the true religion. 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.
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).
The wording of the verse is meant to encompass the pre-flood, peri-flood and Abrahamic systems. However we are considering only the Abrahamic system here. So 'The son' of Abraham was Isaac. Isaac was born second but took the firstborn rights from Ishmael becoming 'the son'.
5 Later on Abraham gave everything he had to Isaac (Genesis 25).
Such was the right of the firstborn, so Isaac had the firstborn rights. Ishmael lost his firstborn rights when he abused his younger brother Isaac...
9 And Sarah kept noticing the son of Hagar the
Egyptian, whom she had borne to Abraham, poking fun.
10 So she began to say to Abraham: Drive out this slave girl and her son, for the son of this slave girl is not going to be an heir with my son, with Isaac!
11 But the thing proved to be very displeasing to Abraham as regards his son.
12 Then God said to Abraham: "Do not let anything that Sarah keeps saying to you be displeasing to you about the boy and about your slave girl. Listen to her voice, because it is by means of Isaac that what will be called your seed will be.
13 And as for the son of the slave girl, I shall also constitute him a nation, because he is your offspring (Genesis 21).
Isaac was also the promised seed of the 2AC, the mediator of the ICC. Jacob was also a son of Abraham according to the Hebrew way of thinking wherein a son of a son is a son. But Jacob was not 'the son' of Abraham. He was however the promised seed of the 3AC, the mediator of the JAC and 'the son' of Isaac.
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 into the Isaaic Church Covenant with water. 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 following 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
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 third won 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 the 2NC Lords in holy spirit.
The baptism into the name of the holy spirit (passing your spirit baptism test and therefore becoming a holy spirit), is not the same as the baptism in holy spirit (entering into your spirit baptism test). Everyone who is sealed in the spirit and gains everlasting life is a part of the holy spirit in some way.
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].
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. So the holy spirit baptism is being born again - I12. Furthermore it is apparent that the baptism into the name of the Lord Jesus, is a baptism in holy spirit, i.e. a baptism into the name of the holy spirit, and so it not a baptism into the name of the son.
In fact the mediator of all baptisms into the name of the 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). This was not the case in the other two system however, hence the less specific wording of Matthew 28:19. Also when one is baptised into the name of the holy spirit one becomes a covenant child of the holy spirit, i.e. a holy spirit. She becomes your mother.
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 Jesusí 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 Schumaker's wife may well be an awful driver, but she is nevertheless Mrs Schumaker, 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 Jesusí wife, and they are his brothers individually, all being sons of God, and they are sons of the new covenant and therefore they are his sons as well!!
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 Ďcommunioní which was their first passover celebration, for Ďcommunioní 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 disconnected 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 every day as one can today in St. Paul's Cathedral in London.
The baptism into Jesusí 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 union with him the whole building, being harmoniously joined together, is growing into a holy temple for Jehovah.
22 In union with him you, too, are being built up together into a place for God to inhabit by spirit (Ephesians 2).
But those in union with Jesus 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, I29) are:
The chain of Mediators of the Law Covenant: God x Methuselah (Gabriel) x Noah x (John the baptist temporarily during the baptism test) x Isaac (ICC) x Moses x Physical Israel
The chain of covenants of the Law Covenant: CRC x 2BC x ICC x Law
The chain of mediators of the New Covenant: God x Michael (Jesus) x Adam x (John the baptist's associated angel temporarily during the baptism test) x Isaac (ICC) x Jacob (JAC) x Jesus x 1NC saints
The chain of covenants of the New Covenant: ARC x 3BC x JAC x New Covenant
So now we see again why a baptism into the name of Moses (whose name means 'drawn out of the water'), was also a baptism into the name of Isaac, by virtue of the above covenant structure. So God did not directly make the Law with Moses. He made a covenant with Methuselah, who made a covenant with Noah who made a covenant with Isaac who made a covenant with Moses. Moses himself did not covenant with Isaac, who was dead throughout his entire life, but nonetheless he was the beneficiary of the covenant that God had already made with Isaac. A covenant is legal asset which can be assigned to the next generation.
And a 1NC saint has a covenant with Jesus who has a covenant with Jacob (promised to Abraham via the 3AC) 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.
As regards the Abrahamic system...
The baptism into the name of the Father is the baptism into
the name of Abraham, through his System covenant the 1AC or into the name of
Isaac, through his System covenant, the ICC.
The baptism into the name of the Son is the baptism into the name of Isaac, through his System covenant the ICC or into the name of Jacob, through his System covenant, the JAC..
The baptism into the name of the Holy Spirit is the baptism into the ARC, which gives you everlasting life. It is the successful completion of your holy spirit baptism test.
The baptism into the name of the father, is not the baptism into the name of God, since no human is a God to be worshipped like Jehovah quite yet.
The baptism into the name of the Lord Jesus, is not the baptism into the name of the Son, but is rather that baptism into the name of Jacob, who has the superior covenant to the new covenant.
All those with their flesh cleansed from dead works against their consciences are baptised in water into the 1AC into the name of Abraham. All those with their flesh cleansed from dead works against the law of the true church are baptised in water into the ICC into the name of Isaac. All those given a clean conscience not merely from their sins against it in the past but actually from their sins against it for the indefinite future are baptised in Holy Spirit into the JAC into the name of Jacob. Isaac was the conduit from Abraham to Jacob. The Christian church on the other hand is the conduit from faith to everlasting spirit life.
But the patriarchal salvation triumvirate of Abraham Isaac and Jacob has appeared before in the peri-flood system as a Biumvirate with Noah and his son Shem and in the pre-flood system as a Biumvirate with Adam's father and Adam. We read in Job...
If there exists for him a messenger, A spokesman, one out of 1,000, To tell to
man his uprightness,
24 Then he favors him and says, 'Let him off from going down into the pit! I have found a ransom!
25 Let his flesh become fresher than in youth; Let him return to the days of his youthful vigor.'
26 He will make entreaty to God that he may take pleasure in him, And he will see his face with joyful shouting, And He will restore His righteousness to mortal man.
27 He will sing to men and say, 'I have sinned; and what is upright I have perverted, And it certainly was not the proper thing for me.
28 He has redeemed my soul from passing into the pit, And my life itself will see the light.'
29 Look! All these things God performs, 2 times, 3 times, in the case of an able-bodied man,
30 To turn his soul back from the pit, That he may be enlightened with the light of those living (Job 33).
These 2 times and 3 times are the ransoms for the system covenant patriarchs. We know that they are ransoms due to verse 24. We know that they cannot be the ransoms of the master mediators of the master covenants since there are precisely 3 of them not 2. So they must be referring to groups of ransoms appearing in twos and threes. The system mediators are the only candidates for such numbers of ransoms, for each system mediator is ransomed. We know in the case of the Abrahamic system there are 3 system mediators, Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. So the scripture above may envisage Adam's father and Adam forming a two person patriarchal salvation chain, having 2 ransomees. The wording of Matthew 28:19 and the above and the comparison with Abraham and the fractal works of our God lead us to deduce that the superior pre-adamic ransomee to Adam was his human 'father', since Adam had the spirit covenant in the pre-flood system and the spirit covenant is taken by the youngest ransomee in the case of Jacob and in the case of Eber in the peri-flood system. So the pre-flood 'Abraham' was Adam's 'dad' and the pre-flood 'Jacob' was Adam himself, and there was no pre-flood equivalent of 'Isaac', because the water baptism did not appear until the flood. This would give us a patriarchal blessing biumvirate in the pre-flood system (Adam and his dad were both blessing mediators as well as system mediators since any blessing mediator is a system mediator for the system he lives in). Incidentally, Adam's dad was not his genetic father, he was a Joseph like figure - see I5.
Baptisms are well described in Paulís 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 the resurrection in an edenic body, hence Ďthe bath that brought us to lifeí. 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 the son, the Lord Jesus Christ, in the case of the first Christians. 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. 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).
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).
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 a permanent part of the holy spirit, a permanent covenanter in the holy spirit covenant. You become a permanent part of Godís wife. You might also be a part of Jesusí wife to be. This is not a problem, it is not bigamy! They are married themselves through the covenant of the firstborn and they both wear the family name of Jehovah. We should all be in submission to both of them! The holy spirit is grieved if sealed people sin, because such people are an integral part of the holy spirit.
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 as it were, so she does feel so grieved!
Sealing is the forgiveness of all sins forever (as regards judgement). At the start of the spirit baptism one is born again, gaining an associated angel. At this time one enters the Holy Spirit covenant temporarily (until time indefinite). When one is sealed and one has finished one's holy spirit baptism, one's entrance into the name of the holy spirit is made permanent. Jesus said to his apostles who were already baptised in holy spirit...
5 because John, indeed, baptized with water, but you will be baptized in holy spirit not many days after this (Acts 1).
Jesus meant that their holy spirit baptism test would end positively not many days later. This was their sealing in spirit, the completion of their holy spirit baptism. At which point one can say, they are 'baptized' period. Now whichever covenant you start your spirit baptism in you end up either in the ARC or in Gehenna. The baptism into the name of the holy spirit is the washing in the blood of the ARC, the blood of the everlasting angel Michael who died as an everlasting angel on the cross/stake. You enter the ARC when you are sealed in holy spirit, when 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 Counselor, Mighty God, Eternal Father, Prince of Peace (Isaiah 9).
We have seen that the baptism into the name of the father is the baptism into the name of Abraham. It 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. 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.
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 and in fact you are baptised in fire into Gehenna.
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 havenít 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. This is 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).
5 He, therefore, who supplies you the spirit and performs powerful
works among you, does he do it owing to works of law or owing to a hearing by faith?
6 Just as Abraham: put faith in Jehovah, and it was counted to him as righteousness.
7 Surely you know that those who adhere to faith are the ones who are sons of Abraham.
8 Now the Scripture, seeing in advance that God would declare people of the nations righteous due to faith, declared the good news beforehand to Abraham, namely: By means of you all the nations will be blessed.
9 Consequently those who adhere to faith are being blessed together with faithful Abraham.
10 For all those who depend upon works of law are under a curse; for it is written: Cursed is every one that does not continue in all the things written in the scroll of the Law in order to do them.
11 Moreover, that by law no one is declared righteous with God is evident, because: the righteous one will live by reason of faith (Galatians 3).
The baptism into Moses was into a law of works, but the righteous decree in the flesh, the end of this baptism, was made not because of works but because of faith. It was a baptism of works perfected by faith. Elizabeth and Zechariah had this. They 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 is a baptism 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 period and this makes one a son of the FRC. The forgiveness coming from the righteous decree in the flesh is a forgiving of sins until Armageddon. For this 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|
|Blessing Mediator (Ransomee)||Adam's Pre-adamic 'Father'||Noah||Adam|

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 being baptized in fire into Gehenna, whereas if you fail a water baptism test you end up back where you started before you took the test and can then retake the test.
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
(i.e. Forgiveness of all sins until a date yet to be specified, i.e. Forgiveness of all sins until some unspecified future date)
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 go to Gehenna. 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.
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 Jesus' 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 of death. For 3
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).
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.
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.
It is important to realise in the case of the law, that the blood of bulls, literally, does not take away any sin, in other words it 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.
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. This is why Paul continues:
So that is why he is a mediator of a new covenant, in order
that, because a death [of Jesus
Christ on the stake] has occurred for [their] release by ransom from the transgressions under the former
covenant [the Law covenant. He ransomed them
from the sins under the covenant, not from the covenant. He reconciled man with
God and that led God to drop the Law], the ones who have been called might receive the promise of the everlasting
16 For where there is a covenant, the death of the one having made for himself [the] covenant needs to be furnished.
17 For a covenant is valid over dead [mediators], since it is not in force/strong/confirmed at any time while the one having made for himself [the] covenant is living (Hebrews 9 - NWT adapted from Greek Interlinear).
The one 'having made for himself covenant' is the mediator of the covenant, for mediators are subcovenanters as we have seen above.
Consequently neither was the former [covenant] inaugurated
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 (Hebrews 9).
The blood of the New covenant was actually John the baptist's blood, for he was the validation sacrifice of the JAC - see U15 and the 1NC was a subcovenant of the JAC. But the blood of the ARC was Michael's blood, so the cup of the new covenant did not contain Jesus' blood but existed by virtue of Jesus' blood. Hence he said:
25 He did likewise respecting the cup also, after he had the evening meal, saying: This cup means the new covenant by virtue of my blood. Keep doing this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me (1 Corinthians 11).
Every son of a covenant is washed in the blood of his immediately superior mediator. So new covenant saints were washed in Jesus' blood (the submediator of the 1NC) which was washed in Jacob's blood (the main mediator of the JAC) which was washed in John's blood (the validation sacrifice of the JAC), and that is their entrance into the 1NC baptism test.
Jesus' own cleanliness is not actually used in the washing. He was one submediator who did not actually need such a washing. He was washed in Jacob's blood, in order to enter the JAC, in order to mediate an inferior subcovenant (the 1NC), not in order to get any cleaner. Likewise he agreed to be baptised by John even in water, in order to enter the correct covenant, the ICC, and thereby enter the first Christian church officially, not because he had any sins in the past which needed forgiving. We cover this in greater depth below.
So here is the 64 million dollar question that the LWs have been struggling to ask and to answer for 10 years, and of course asking the right question is 99% of getting the right answer. Why does Jacob need both John's blood of the JAC and Michael's blood of the ARC? Why do we have two sets of blood, two validation sacrifices for one master covenant?
The answer is this... The blood of John cleanses him for the JAC which is entered by baptism at the beginning of the spirit baptism test. The blood of Michael, cleanses him for his entrance into the 3BC and the ARC which is entered into at the end of the spirit baptism test if that test is passed. So the one validation sacrifice covers the baptism at the start of the baptism test and the other validation sacrifice covers the baptism at the end of the baptism test which is a sealing, a righteous decree, assuming you pass the test. A sealed 1NC saints is a son of Jesus, the son of Jacob, the son of Adam, the son of Michael the son of God.
Michael's blood can only be applied to Adam himself, since he ransoms Adam directly not Jacob directly. For if Michael's blood was applied in ransom of Adam today, then no one would die anymore and we would all become everlasting angels whenever we wanted. Which would be great, but is not really God's plan!!
Each ransom of the FRC, the CRC and the ARC can only be applied once everyone still living is actually entitled to the benefit of that ransom. So the FRC can be applied at the beginning of the Kingdom of God when Melchizedek is resurrected and the CRC also can be applied at the beginning of the Kingdom of God when Noah too, the blessing mediator of the 2BC, is resurrected to attend the marriage of the lamb. Then the ARC is applied when everyone who is alive at the time (i.e. not in the second death) is entitled to everlasting life, this presumably happens after the 1,000 year reign.
In the case of the ARC, Michael has got the ransom together and has lodged it with the lawyers, but they cannot apply it until everyone who God does not want to live forever has physically died. In fact all of Adam's living sons have to be sealed before the ransom of Michael for Adam occurs. This will not have occurred until after the end of the Kingdom of God.
So John the baptist, provides Jacob and his sons of the JAC with a temporary angelic vehicle to get us into and through the Kingdom, through his validation sacrifice. John is actually a temporary holding sacrifice, that keeps us going until Adam himself can be ransomed at which point we get a permanent everlasting angelic vehicle. Jesus can give us an everlasting angelic vehicle because he died having already been sealed himself. He died as an everlasting spirit:
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? (Hebrew 9).
This death as an everlasting angel is how Jesus gives us life as everlasting angels, it is how he seals us in holy spirit. But John the baptist actually died as an angel when Herod cut his head off. John was non adamic, and so he had an associated angel. This angel had not been sealed, and it must have died in order that the sons of Jacob through the JAC can have indefinitely lasting angelic bodies until such time as Michael actually ransoms Adam - see U15. In fact Peter and Paul and Russell and Rutherford exist today alive as angels in heaven due to this ransom of Jacob by the associated angel of John the baptist.
So Adam cannot be ransomed angelically by Michael until everyone alive is sealed to have everlasting life. But what about Jacob? If he is already ransomed by John getting his indefinitely living angelic body, then won't all Jews alive today escape death? Evidently not! Only his sons of the JAC get the advantages of John's indefinitely living angelic body, not his genetic sons. Jacob was ransomed after he died, since John, his ransomer, died a long time after he did, And so all of his children have the death sentence of Adam passed on to them, which death sentence still exists. This is why Paul says:
For where there is a covenant, the death of the [human]
covenanter needs to be furnished.
17 A covenant is valid over dead [mediators] (Hebrews 9).
It becomes valid after the validation sacrifice ransoms the system mediator. And this happens after his death. Incidentally the judicial status of the wives of Adam and Abraham and Jacob etc. is irrelevant in these legal calculations because physical wives affect genetic children not covenant children. Women are the priestesses of physical life, they have nothing legally to do with spiritual life. Men are the priests of spiritual life. But women can effectively give spiritual life just as men can by loving and teaching and reflecting Jesus' character. Covenants are just the law behind the love. God is love, which when combined with wisdom gives perfect law.
Likewise the blood of the Law covenant was Moses' blood, but the Law was a subcovenant of the ICC, which was the promise of the 2AC. The validation sacrifice of the ICC was the non adamic Isaac himself initially and then he was washed in the blood of John's human body we think. Moses' blood was washed in Isaac's blood. But Isaac himself was a son of the 1AC, so Isaac was washed in Abraham's blood. Abraham's blood was washed in Jesus' blood, since Jesus the human was the validation sacrifice for the 1AC. So all the sacrifices under law actually did point to Jesus. This then is what was cleansing the flesh of the sons of Israel from their sins. This is why a mediator 'one having made for himself covenant', had to die in order for the covenant to be confirmed. Because until he dies his blood is not actually available. Although Peter and all of the 12 apostles were washed in Michael's blood before he died, their baptisms were not completed, they were not sealed, until Pentecost in 33 CE after he died.
When a Jew became registered in the army, at 20 years old, (according to Hebrew age counting) under Law, then he was baptised into the name of Moses.
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).
At his 20th passover a lamb was killed, one lamb per house. This symbolically represented his baptism into Moses, by a washing away of his/her sins of the flesh, with the blood of Moses, represented by the blood of the passover lamb. Then every time that he defiled himself thereafter, he would go to the high priest with a sacrifice. When the priest poured out the blood of this sacrificial animal, then the 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. Although in any true Christian congregation one can only be rebaptised by men twice after the first baptism - see U271. 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)!
Jesus was washed in Isaac's blood by John the baptist, although 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). This procedure certainly did not result in any higher cleanliness for Jesus, but it did put Jesus into the ICC. Jesus himself said that this was necessary in order that 'all that is righteous' was carried out.
Jesus was the very seed promised to Jacob in the JAC as a subcovenant of the 3AC. So from the standpoint of the 3AC he was a son of Abraham. Of course he was circumcised as well and therefore a son by the LCC - see I29. And Jesus was the very seed of the JLCC that would finally inherit the promised land. The JLCC was a subcovenant of the Land and Circumcision Covenant, the LCC, which provided exclusive entry into the ICC for children of Jacob until the conversion of the Roman officer Cornelius in 36Tishri (36 CE September/October). So Jesus did enter the ICC at his 20th Passover like the other children of Jacob. But the Jesus, called Immanuel, who entered the ICC aged 20 was raptured at his baptism aged 30 into heaven, when his body was taken by Michael, who came down from heaven - see Intro16. So it was Michael who needed a baptism by John to enter into the ICC, which is a covenant not for bodies but for spirits (personalities - people). Now the human souls of Jesus was still circumcised and therefore still a party to the LCC which was a covenant not for spirits but for souls, involving the circumcision of that soul physically. Now when John started providing entrance into the ICC through baptism in water, the previous doorway of the Law into that covenant had been closed actually for the 3Ĺ years of the near bank of Daniel 12 - U152. The point is the 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 1AC and the 2AC, since those baptised were stones, dead stones, dead building blocks of the temple of the true religion, true but not born again Christians. This fatherhood is entrance into the name Abraham through the 1AC and through the ICC promised by the 2AC (since the water baptism puts you into both the 1AC and the 2AC). 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 2AC by means of the law. He now had this power, through his baptism, both for the 1AC and the 2AC. In fact though the law itself was still able to provide 1AC entrance in 29Nisan when John started baptising people, 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 and therefore be unable to put others into it by the Dirty Water Principle!
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 covenant. 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. But the way this is actually done is for them both to die, and then their blood (which is washed in the blood of the covenant) is used in the ransom process.
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. 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.
