Counterfeit or Jesus’ Warning about WHO NOT TO FOLLOW:
Matthew 24:4-14 on the tail of the following: Matthew 23: 1-4, 5-7, 23 – 28, 33
ACTS 1,2 – Where Jesus was publicly proclaimed as LORD. The Kingdom comes to you when you truly embrace Jesus as LORD and are baptized by His Holy Spirit (the Counselor he sends – see John 16). Water baptism shows that you’ve accepted Christ as Savior (you let Him wash you) and shows that you accept Christ as your King (you proclaim Him as LORD at your water baptism). This was the original “altar call”.
Saved by faith in the blood of Jesus but water baptism somehow completes it and helps you to feel “born again”. It validates your decision to you and others. Makes it real and shows you understand that Jesus is more than just an add on to your life…..you are dieing to yourself and being raised with a new Spirit – the Spirit of Christ.
Matthew 13, John 13, Ephesians 4:17 – 5:5
Humility, Servant Leadership, Holiness
God’s will is for us to be Holy – becoming more and more like Christ.
To see what this really means – look at Jesus.
