Matthew 9:24-27. “24He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn. 25But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose. ”

What the Bible Teaches on Baptism

Lets start with this verse..

Ephesians 4:5 “One Lord, one faith, one baptism.”

Christ commanded the disciples to baptise…..

Mark 16:15, 16 “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.”

Matthew 28:19 “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:”

Baptism is for those who hear the gospel, believe, and repent.

The Second Coming of Christ

How Christ will return at the Second Coming….
And when He had spoken these things, while they beheld, He was taken up; and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they were looking steadfastly toward Heaven as He went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; which also said, ‘Ye men of Galilee; why stand ye gazing up into Heaven? This same Jesus which is taken up from you into Heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen Him go into Heaven’. Acts 1:9-l l.

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ.

Sunday, does scripture make it a day of worship.

First lets look at whether God care what day we observe?¨ Isa 56:13&14 “If thou turn away thy foot from the Sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the Sabbatha delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, […]

Should Christians Keep The Sabbath?

This is the heart of the matter in our relationship with God, should Christians Keep The Sabbath? Did God make the Seventh-Day for all mankind?

Scripture tells us that Jesus Christ is “Lord even of the Sabbath day” as the Creator. Jesus said,“For the Son of Man is Lord even of the Sabbath day.” Matthew 12:8. By identifying Himself as “Lord even of the Sabbath day,” Jesus was showing that He was the One who originally created Earth in six days, and rested on the seventh day. And the New Testament makes clear that Jesus is the Creator…
