All OT scriptures refer about one God, starting with the scripture : 


Gen 1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 


One God 

One Lord 

Lord God

Holy One 

King 

Saviour 

Redeemer 

Deliverer, etc.etc. refers to ONE. 


This ‘One’ means numerical ‘1’, singular. Nothing is added. When singular comes, grammatically, the usage of sentence consists of following words: I, I am, My, Me, Myself, I will, He, Him, His, Himself, You, your, Yourself, He will, Is etc. (Above basic grammar is given for any sensible reader to understand simply, what is one and singular) 


Below given scriptures are some examples of proving God is ONE, singular usage. 


Gen_2:18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him. 


Gen_3:10 And he said, I heard thy voice in the garden, and I was afraid, because I was naked; and I hid myself.

 

I am 

Isa_43:12 I have declared, and have saved, and I have shewed, when there was no strange god among you: therefore ye are my witnesses, saith the LORD, that I am God. 


Isa_45:22 Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, and there is none else. 


Isa_46:9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, 


My 

Gen_26:5 Because that Abraham obeyed my voice, and kept my charge, my commandments, my statutes, and my laws. 


Isaiah 59:21 As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and forever. 


According to trinity, if there are three Gods, in OT, Is there any scripture refers their conversation or interaction, like Father speaking to Son or Son speaking to Holy Ghost or Holy ghost speaking to Father ? In OT, we can find that God himself is father. See following scripture : 


Isaiah 63:16 Doubtless thou art our father, though Abraham be ignorant of us, and Israel acknowledge us not: thou, O LORD, art our father, our redeemer; thy name is from everlasting. 


So, when God is Father, Spirit, He is Holy Ghost also. God, Father is in Spirit form, Holy ghost is also in spirit form. Therefore, there is no 2 spirit forms of God. There is only One God. See following Scripture :  


Deut.6 :4 Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD: 


However, when the fullness of time come, (God only knows the fullness of time), the God we see in the entire OT (Voice, wind, fire, smoke, pillar of fire, flame, angel, man, [theophanies of God], came to this world. Otherwise, the God of OT, Jehovah, manifested in flesh. See following scriptures : 


Matthew 1 21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. (God can only remit /forgive sins) 


23 Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. (OT GOD Jehovah now visible as a Man, and not 2nd person in trinity) 


1 Timothy 3 16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. 


1 John 3 16 Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. 


Who laid down his life ? 


See, he (God – Jesus) laid down his life. Who is this Jesus ? 


Ephesians 4 10 He that descended is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, that he might fill all things.) 


John 3 13 And no man hath ascended up to heaven, but he that came down from heaven, even the Son of man which is in heaven. 


John 3 31 He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all. 


John 6 35 And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst. 


Hebrew 1 GOD, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets, 


2 Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds; 


Philipians 1: 17 Now unto the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only wise God, be honour and glory forever and ever. Amen. 


1 Timothy 6: 15 Which in his times he shall shew, who is the blessed and only Potentate, the King of kings, and Lord of lords; 


16 Who only hath immortality, dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto; whom no man hath seen, nor can see: to whom be honour and power everlasting. Amen. 


Acts. 1 10 And while they looked stedfastly toward heaven as he went up, behold, two men stood by them in white apparel; 


11 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. See the same Jesus is coming back again. 


You Trinitarians, do you look 3 Gods are coming back ? If so, you live in a fool’s paradise. 


To understanding about one God, one should have Holyghost. How Holy ghost to receive ? See the below scripture : 


Acts. 2 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 


1 Corinthians 12 3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and that no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost. 


See, no man can say Jesus is the Lord (God, Jehovah) unless he has the Holy Ghost. So, be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins, so you shall receive the Holy Ghost. 


Believe in ONE GOD. Ephesians 4 5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism, 

6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. 


Acts. 4 12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. 


Don’t be cheated and deceived by trinity teachers and preachers, because their doctrine will lead you to damnation and eternal hell fire. Beware and flee away from them. 


Follow Christ and Apostles Doctrine, according to the following scripture : 


Acts. 2 38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. 


39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call. 


40 And with many other words did he testify and exhort, saying, Save yourselves from this untoward generation. 


41 Then they that gladly received his word were baptized: and the same day there were added unto them about three thousand souls. 


42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. 


46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart, 


47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved. 


See, God is adding people to His Church, those who are saved and follow Apostolic doctrine. 


So, please do not listen your : 

Pope 

Priests 

Pastors 

Evangelists

TV Preachers, who are not preaching like Apostles. They are treacherous and ravening wolves in sheep’s cloth. 


Identify them and avoid them. 


May God bless you.

In this world of seemingly no absolutes, the word of God stands unchanged. There has been a mass forsaking of holiness standard in our churches. Let me give you some scriptures about holiness

Hebrew 12:14

Follow peace with all men, and holiness, without which no man shall see the Lord.

 

1st. Thessalonians4:7

For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness.

 

Romans 6:22

But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

 

1st. Peter1:15-16

But as he who hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.

 

1st. John 2:15-17

Love not the world, neither the thing that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever.

 

1st. John 2:3-4

And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments. He that saith, I know him, and keepeth not his commandments, is a liar, and the truth is not in him.

 

James 4:4

Ye adulterers and adultresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

 

1st. Peter 4:18

And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear?

 

This is just a few of the many scriptures that tell us that holiness living is a requirement, if we plan on being saved. Now this worldly church system says it dosent matter how you live, cause Jesus paid for your sins. But on the contrary Romans 6: 1-2 ... Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound? God forbid...  Those whose choose to live a sinful lifestyle and still be religious will have a rude awakening on the day of judgment. Whosever was not found written in the Book of Life was cast into the Lake of Fire. The Bible will be your judge, for the Word is God, John 1:1. Can you open up the pages of this book of life and find your name written therein? How? By obedience to he word of God. Do you think God is going to excuse your adultery? How about Fornication? How about idolatry? such as pagan holidays and roman catholic doctrines. How about immodest dress? it is laciviousness. How about whosoever loveth and maketh a lie? such as preaching a satanic trinity doctrine or telling your children bunny and Santa lies??? Strait  is the gate, narrow is the way that leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. The complaint department is downstairs. Its a little warm and crowded down there.

What St. Paul’s warning to Godly Brethren ?

 

Your attention please !

 

Rom.16 :

 

17        Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

18        For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

 

Verse 16

 

Mark them which causes :-

 

1)     Divisions

2)     Offences

3)     Contrary to the doctrine which you have learned

 

Who are they ?

 

1)                 They serve not our Lord Jesus  Christ

2)                 They do business for filling their belly

3)                 Deceive the souls by good words and fair speeches

4)                 Deceive the hearts of simple

 

Mark them which causes :-

 

1)                 Division:The Apostolic doctrine spread by Apostles of Jesus Christ from 1st Century on Pentecost day, divided in to Trinity (Trinitarians) by the works of Satan. (Church had been divided by them)

 

2)         Offences :     These Non-Apostolic people offended to True Apostolic doctrine (Jesus’)

 

3)         Contrary to the doctrine : These Non-Apostolic doctrine people spread the trinity doctrine contrary to the truth done by Apostles. For e.g. Apostles preached about ONE GOD, Jesus Christ and given baptism in Jesus’ name. The Trinitarians spread the wrong doctrine of trinity, believing in God in three persons and given baptism in the name of Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

 

Therefore, St. Paul says, they are serving not Lord Jesus Christ. They ran here and there for filling their stomach and deceiving the souls by preaching sugar coated words.

Who are these group ?

 

Trinitarians. Almost all TV/Auditorium/ pulpit conquered by them and preaching Non-Apostolic doctrine, thereby pulling huge crowds and doing money making business in reward to their ministry. They do not speak the subject of Salvation or Jesus’ name baptism for remission of sins.

 

Really who are they according to St. Paul ?

 

Cursed !!!!!!!!

 

Please read following scriptures.

 

Gal. Chapter 1

 

8         But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

9         As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

 

 

At this juncture, Apostle Paul warns the Godly people, who follow the Apostolic doctrine believing in ONE GOD and believing in Jesus’ name baptism, should avoid them. I am not saying, they are our enemies. But with the love of God, treat them as our friends and brothers and teach them the truth in the spirit of meekness.

 

Let the will of God be fulfilled.

 

If any pre-destined souls or pre-ordained souls of God, before the foundation of the world live amongst them, they will come out from the trinity darkness and see the light of Salvation in Jesus’ name.

 

So let’s go ahead and proclaim the truth without fear and lift the name of our only ONE TRUE GOD AND SAVIOUR, LORD JESUS CHRIST, the name above all names !

Bible speaks of how women are to conduct themselves in worship. In 1 Corinthians 14:34-35 we read, "Let your women keep silent in the churches, for they are not permitted to speak; but they are to be submissive, as the law also says. And if they want to learn something, let them ask their own husbands at home; for it is shameful for women to speak in church." The Bible says that women are not permitted to speak during the worship service of the church. If a church allows women to speak or take a leading role during their worship service, they are ignoring what God's word forbids. They are telling God, "we don't care what You say we are going to do things our way".

Some people says, “We are not saved by baptism; we are saved by grace.”
Indeed, we are saved by grace. But just what is ‘grace’? The Oxford American Dictionary defines grace as: God’s loving mercy toward mankind. Other words that may be found in a thesaurus as synonyms for “grace” include: mercy, favor, kindness, blessing, and compassion.


And it is because of God’s mercy, His favor, His kindness, His blessing and His compassion that He has provided mankind with a salvation plan! We are saved by God’s mercy. We do not deserve the blessings God has given us.
Ephesians 2:4-9---But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions--it is by grace you have been saved. And God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith--and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God-- not by works, so that no one can boast.
Baptism in no way minimizes or nullifies God’s grace as some critics argue that baptism does. They make this argument because they do not understand the role baptism plays in God’s salvation plan. Baptism in Jesus name-confirms and verifies God’s grace to us! God’s grace is manifested in baptism- READ MK 16:16; I Peter 3:20-21! after we are baptized in Jesus name and received the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38), His grace continues to cover us.
Notice this passage says:
God made us alive in Christ when we were dead—and this is God’s grace.
God raised us up with Christ
God expresses His grace to mankind by giving us Christ Jesus
God’s grace is through faith.
When did God make us alive when we were dead, and raise us up with Christ? What is Paul talking about?
Romans 6:3-5 describes just such a scenario-- when we were dead in sin and God raised us up with Christ:
“Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we shall certainly be united with him in a resurrection like his”.
An Analogy of Grace and Faith :
Here is an analogy that may help to put what we have learned into perspective. Suppose Smith tells Jack "Meet me at the bank tomorrow morning at 11:00 A.M. and I will give you $2,000." (This is a condition for receiving the gift.) If Jack really believes Smith, he will appear at the appointed place and time. (Faith necessarily produces trust, response, and reliance) If Jack shows up, has he thereby earned the money? Of course not, because the money is a free gift. Yet his appearance is a necessary condition that must be met in order to receive the gift. (Grace on Smith's part, faith on Jack’s part.) If Jack fails to show up, he will not receive the gift and the responsibility for the failure will fall totally upon him. (Lack of faith in the promise.) 
Similarly, we must respond to God in faith by seeking repentance, remission of sins at water baptism according to Acts 2:38-41; Acts 10:44-48, Therefore Jesus said, “He that believeth and baptized shall be saved” (Mk 16:16) also read I Peter 3:20-21. If we do, God will graciously grant our petition, and we will receive salvation totally as a free gift and not as an earned right. If we do not respond in obedience to God's Word, we will not receive salvation, and the blame will rest totally upon us ( Read Mark 16:16; Gal 1:8-9; Acts 2:37-41; Acts 19:1-7).
The Bible says that the wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23). And when we had sinned and were dead, and had received only what we deserved, God in His mercy and grace provided a way for us to be saved—He robed Himself in flesh and gave of Himself as the Son of God to reconcile the world to Himself (II Corinthians 5:19). The one True God of the Old Testament, the great Creator of the universe, humbled Himself in the form of man so that man could see Him, understand Him, and communicate with Him. He made a body for Himself, called the Son of God ( I Tim 3:16;I Isaiah 44:6).Hence, without Jesus, baptism is meaningless- Therefore, we must be baptized in the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ! Jesus name baptism is necessary. We know that Jesus name is the only saving name given in the New Testament ( Acts 4:12). Baptism in Jesus name, coupled with faith, is the means by which we become unified with Christ. Baptism is how we are “put into” Christ( Gal 3:27).
We should be grateful and thankful beyond measure that God has provided a salvation plan for us who deserve nothing but death.
Remember! To “believe in Jesus” means to believe the gospel message, and baptism is a part of that gospel message- Mark 16:16; John 3:5; Acts 2:38-41!
If we say we are not saved by baptism in Jesus name, we are saying we are not saved by God’s salvation plan ( Read Luke 24:47; Mk 16:16; Acts 22:38; 2:38-39).
God wants everyone to be saved and to know the truth. It is by God’s abundant mercy and grace that he provides us with a way out of the darkness. His salvation plan is available to every human being! His invitation is extended to everybody and it is by His grace that anyone gets an invitation at all. Yet even though His salvation is open to all, we must each, individually, respond to this invitation, to His grace, and to His call. We do this by believing, by repenting, by confessing our faith in Christ and by being baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, receiving gift of the Holy Spirit- Acts 2:38; John 3:5! Then in Christ you can live forever.

The word of God is not a dead letter. It is “living and powerful” (Hebrews 4:12). Although our flesh is like grass that withers away, through the “living and powerful” word of God we can live forever. Let us hold fast the “word of life” (Philippians 2:16).
“Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today, and forever” (Hebrews 13:8). Jesus said: “Heaven and earth will pass away, but My words will by no means pass away” (Matthew 24:35). “The word of our God stands forever” (Isaiah 40:8). Today we are commanded to obey the gospel of Christ and continue in the apostles doctrine ( Acts 2:38-47; John 3:5;. Rom 10:10; Rev 2:10; Acts 2:42; 2 Jn 9). Do this and live forever.

LIVE FOREVER-obey ACTS 2:38!

I posted a message of truth with scripture rightly divided and some vile reprobate devils attacked me for teaching truth on my own page (but no one really has a page or a group because the devils running Facebook can block you at their whim.)  I responded to the reprobate devils with more truth and they managed to get some corrupt filth at Facebook to censor my replies to them and to block me from posting for 7 days and block me even from communicating privately with friends.  I have spent these 7 days posting in other places and promoting http://www.facebookcensorship.com  I now ask all real Christians reading this to agree with me in prayer that the Lord would reward those reprobate filth according to their works and really bring it home to them along with those at Fbook who cooperated with them.


It is very important to be aware of the corruption and anti-Christian and anti-conservative nature of Facebook.  If you are building on Facebook you are building your house on sand. You could lose your ability to communicate with your friends with no notice at some devil's whim.  Don't put all your eggs in one basket.  You cannot trust Facebook. I know this to be true.  That is why I post most of my material at http://biblefolk.com/forum/4 and then just share parts of it on FB.


Please take a moment and share this post around Facebook and warn others about Facebook censorship and corruption.

This is a message for the whole world's so called Christians, who still believe that : -


Jehovah is a God of OT

Jesus is a junior God of NT

Father, a separate God

Son, a separate God

Holyghost, a separate God,


Please understand the truth about the only ONE TRUE GOD, JESUS.


Luke  24:27  


And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, he expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself.   


Luke  24:44  


And he said unto them, These are the words which I spake unto you, while I was yet with you, that all things must be fulfilled, which were written in the law of Moses, and in the prophets, and in the psalms, concerning me.   


Above 2 scriptues uttered by Jesus Christ itself, when he was on the earth, to His Disciples.


He said, beginning at :


Moses

Prophets

Psalms


Wrote about him/me (Jesus).


Is there anybody who can challenge Jesus' statement ?


The 1st 5 books of OT believed to be written by Moses. 


Is there any doubt on this to anybody in the world of Christendom ?


Jesus said, Moses wrote about me.


Then Jesus said, all the Prophets wrote about him (Jesus). That means all the Prophets from Moses to Malachi, wrote about me (Jesus), covering entire OT.


If so, what Moses wrote in the beginning ?


Moses wrote :


Genesis  1:1 


In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.


Jesus said,  the "God" mentioned, it is of me. In Moses Laws and Commandments, he wrote of me. In the Laws and Commandment what Moses wrote ?


Deuteronomy  6:4 


Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:


God, LORD GOD, Jehovah etc. etc., that was about Jesus. Right.


What Prophets did write ?


They also wrote about God, LORD GOD, JEHOVAH etc.etc. That was about Jesus.


What in Psalms wrote ?


God, LORD, Jehovah etc.etc.

That was about whom ? Jesus said, it was about him/me (JESUS)


John  1:45  


Philip findeth Nathanael, and saith unto him, We have found him, of whom Moses in the law, and the prophets, did write, Jesus of Nazareth, the son of Joseph.


John  5:46  


For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me: for he wrote of me.


(See above scriptures. Jesus said, Moses wrote of me (Jesus).


John  1:49  Nathanael answered and saith unto him, Rabbi, thou art the Son of God; thou art the King of Israel.


(Above scriptue, Nathaniel was telling Jesus, you are the Son of God and King of Israel.)


Woh ! So strange. 


When was Jesus made King of Israel ? 


Never in history, he was the King of Israel. 


However, Nathaniel says, he is the King of Israel. Means, Jehovah was the King of Israel, who delivered Israelites from Egypt. That was Jesus.


Jews mocking at Jesus and said, You, The King of Jews. 


However, he never sat on the earthly throne at Jerusalem, as King of Israel during his life on earth. But JESUS as the King of Kings and LORD of LORDS going to rule the whole world 1000 years in future.


To understand these scriptures, what Jesus did ?


Luke  24:45 


Then opened he their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.


Unless Jesus open your eyes and heart, you will not understand this truth.


If your eyes are not opened, you will say :


Jehovah is OT God

Jesus is Junior God in NT

God is trinity

God is three persons

Father is God

Son is God

Holyghost is God (3 separate Gods)

God is 3 in 1

God is 1 in 3

Baptism in the name of Father Son and Holyghost. Etc. Etc.


However, to whom Jesus opened their eyes, they will say :


Deuteronomy  6:4 


Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God is one LORD:


1 Timothy  3:16 


And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.


James  2:19 


Thou believest that there is one God; thou doest well: the devils also believe, and tremble.


There is only ONE GOD and that God is JESUS CHRIST and they will baptize people in Jesus' name, according to following scriptures :


Acts  2:38 


Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.


Acts  8:16 


(For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)


Acts  10:48 


And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed they him to tarry certain days.


Acts  19:5 


When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.


Pray to Jesus for opening your eyes to realize the truth.


May God bless you.

Never man spake like this man. John  7:46  


In the world, so many Emperors, Kings, Rulers, Scholars, Politicians, Pandits, leaders, Gurus, Masters, Revolutionists, wise and prudent came and gone. 


They promised hollow promises to the people and not fulfilled. They were not strict to their words. Their promises failed, Their commitments gone haywire. Why ? Because they were simply human beings.


However, see a Man, mentioned in Jn. 7:46, says, never man spake like this Man. 


Who is this Man ? This Man is JESUS.


What he spake ?


When He spake, a "beginning" started for the humanity.


Genesis  1:1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.


When He spake, Universe made.


When He spake galaxy came into existence.


When He spake, whatever visible and invisible thing of the World made.


All things were/are created by Him by His word. He said "let there be", all things came into existence.


This Spirit God, Mighty, Infinite, Omnipotent, Omnipresent, Omniscient Almighty GOD, what we see from Genesis  to Malachi, appeared in various theophanies, called Jehovah or YHWH or YAVEH or I AM or I AM THAT I AM, manifested in the flesh, that Man is called JESUS.


1 Timothy  3:16 And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.


No men of this world spake like this Man, Jesus.


In this world, in all countries, there is a cabinet consists of PM, President, and ministers holding different portfolios, like, Home, Education, Health, External Affairs, Petroleum, Tax, Industry, Trade/Commerce, Forest etc. etc. However, they could not govern efficiently, attracting wrath of people from time to time. They all face failure in their duties and finally wash their hands in despair.


However, here is a minister, who is Wonderful, Counsellor, (in Malayalam, " Athphudha Manthri) handling all portfolios, of all the world without an iota of change or failure. That Minister is, Jesus Christ. See the scripture shown below :


Isaiah  9:6 


For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.


This Man said :-


Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.


I am the way, the truth and the life.


I am the bread of life.


I will never leave you or forsake thee.


I will give you My peace.


I will be with you till the end of the world.


I am the living water.


I am the first and the last.

I am Alpha and Omega.


And he arose, and rebuked the wind, and said unto the sea, Peace, be still. And the wind ceased, and there was a great calm.


And immediately he talked with them, and saith unto them, Be of good cheer: it is I; be not afraid.


And he said unto them, Why are ye troubled? and why do thoughts arise in your hearts?  


Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.   


Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.


He said unto them, Give place: for the maid is not dead, but sleepeth. And they laughed him to scorn.  


But when the people were put forth, he went in, and took her by the hand, and the maid arose.


And, behold, they brought to him a man sick of the palsy, lying on a bed: and Jesus seeing their faith said unto the sick of the palsy; Son, be of good cheer; thy sins be forgiven thee.   


But Jesus turned him about, and when he saw her, he said, Daughter, be of good comfort; thy faith hath made thee whole. And the woman was made whole from that hour.   


Then touched he their eyes, saying, According to your faith be it unto you.   


Then Jesus answered and said unto her, O woman, great is thy faith: be it unto thee even as thou wilt. And her daughter was made whole from that very hour.   


When Jesus saw their faith, he said unto the sick of the palsy, Son, thy sins be forgiven thee.  


And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague.   


And Jesus said unto him, Go thy way; thy faith hath made thee whole. And immediately he received his sight, and followed Jesus in the way.   


And when he saw their faith, he said unto him, Man, thy sins are forgiven thee.   


And he said to the woman, Thy faith hath saved thee; go in peace.   


And he said unto her, Daughter, be of good comfort: thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace.


Now when he came nigh to the gate of the city, behold, there was a dead man carried out, the only son of his mother, and she was a widow: and much people of the city was with her.  


And when the Lord saw her, he had compassion on her, and said unto her, Weep not.  


And he came and touched the bier: and they that bare him stood still. And he said, Young man, I say unto thee, Arise.  


And he that was dead sat up, and began to speak. And he delivered him to his mother.


And he commanded the multitude to sit down on the grass, and took the five loaves, and the two fishes, and looking up to heaven, he blessed, and brake, and gave the loaves to his disciples, and the disciples to the multitude.  


And they did all eat, and were filled: and they took up of the fragments that remained twelve baskets full.


Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live:  


And when he thus had spoken, he cried with a loud voice, Lazarus, come forth.  


And he that was dead came forth, bound hand and foot with grave clothes: and his face was bound about with a napkin. Jesus saith unto them, Loose him, and let him go.


See, this Man Jesus, Healed the sick, lame walked, fed the hungry, raised the dead, healed the blind, deaf and maimed, forgiven sins, rebuked Sea and wind. He as God, did miracles, when he was in earth. There was nothing impossible for Him.


Finally at the cross He said "it is finished".


This God is not the 2nd person in trinity. 


This God is the only ONE True and wise God ever existed, existing and will be existed forever .


Hebrews  13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.


Yes, He is the author and finisher.


Dear readers, 


Are you willing to submit your life to Jesus ?


Can you believe, Jesus died for your sins ? Because, no other name  given under heaven for Salvation, except JESUS.


Acts  4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.


Jesus is the only ONE TRUE GOD, who can save sinners, according to following scripture :


Matthew  1:21 And she shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins.


If so, get baptized in Jesus' name, for the remission of sins, according to Acts. 2:38, as under :


Acts  2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.


Never men shed their blood for sinners, except Christ Jesus.


Don't be fooled, deceived or cheated by the false doctrine of Trinity, which leads to damnation and hell fire.


The promoters and supporters and preachers and teachers of Trinity are cursed, according to St. Paul, which is as under :


Galatians  1:8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. 


1:9 As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.


Never man spake like this Man (JESUS) spake.


May God bless you.

Who [is] on the LORD’S side?


Whose side are You on?


This question is not a political one to get an answer like, Congress, BJP, Communist, Republican, RSS etc. This is a purely Biblical question and it is so

important for one’s own Christian life.


From the beginning of humanity there have been two sides existing in the universe,

i.e. LORD’s side and the other, of course, Satan’s side.


Please refer following scriptures:


Moses’ Announcement.


Exodus {32:25} And when Moses saw that the people [were] naked; (for Aaron

had made them naked unto [their] shame among their enemies:)


{32:26} Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who [is] on the


LORD’S side? [let him come] unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.


{32:27} And he said unto them, Thus saith the LORD God of Israel, Put every man

his sword by his side, [and] go in and out from gate to gate throughout the camp,

and slay every man his brother, and every man his companion, and every man his

neighbour.


{32:28} And the children of Levi did according to the word of Moses: and there

fell of the people that day about three thousand men.


See? People of Israel were going together but Moses found some rebellion among

the people about the worship of God. He saw that differences of opinion emerged

among them about God. Some even wanted to worship idols. The servant of God,

like Moses, never tolerates such practices. God always wanted a separation from

Godly and ungodly. Moses asked, “Who [is] on the LORD’S side? [let him come]

unto me.”


According to Moses’ commandment, Levi’s sons gathered and killed

3000 wicked people by the sword.


Here please give your attention. There 3000 ungodly Israelite people were killed

by the sword and perished. However, on the day of Pentecost, 3000 ungodly

converted and gathered to Apostle’s/Jesus’ side. See the link?


See Another Announcement of Joshua.


Joshua {24:15} And if it seem evil unto you to serve the LORD, choose you this

day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your fathers served that [were] on

the other side of the flood, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but

as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.


Here, Joshua announced for the people to choose their God freely. There is always

God given free will to come to Him. Joshua is not compelling people; but he alone

and his family decided to serve the Lord.


What will you choose today?


All OT Servants of God, Prophets, Kings, Judges, Princes Shepherds, and Pastors

chose to serve the LORD.


God always had a remnant for Him in OT. Please read the following scripture:


Num. {23:9} For from the top of the rocks I see him, and from the hills I behold

him: lo, the people shall dwell alone, and shall not be reckoned among the nations.

See? Israel was not approved by other nations of the world. They were alone; but

God was with them.


When we are coming to the NT, who was on Lord Jesus’ side?


Disciples and Apostles.


Who were Apostles?


Mat. {10:1} And when he had called unto [him] his twelve disciples, he gave them

power [against] unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness

and all manner of disease.


{10:2} Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is

called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James [the son] of Zebedee, and John his

brother;

{10:3} Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James [the

son] of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus;


{10:4} Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.


Mat. {28:20} Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded

you: and, lo, I am with you alway, [even] unto the end of the world. Amen.


So, there is a necessity for us to choose a side, either the Lord’s or Satan’s.


If anybody is not on Lord’s (Jesus’) side, what is the consequence?


SWORD / DAMNATION!


A sword is looming over the head of Trinitarians. You may ask why?


Here is the answer.


Trinitarians do:


1.  Dedications of children are done in the titles of Father Son and Holy Ghost.


2.  House warming ceremonies are done in the titles of Father Son and Holy

Ghost.


3.  Foundation stones of House/church or any other type of building are laid in

the titles of Father Son and Holy Ghost.


4.  Marriage Ceremonies are done in the titles of Father Son and Holy Ghost.


5.  naugurations of Convention/Seminar/Meeting etc. are done in the titles of

Father Son and Holy Ghost.


6.  Baptisms are done in the titles of Father Son and Holy Ghost.

(These all are without the name of Jesus. They are simply repeating some

words like a parrot)


Lord’s side people, did the Apostles do anything like this in their ministry?

Rest, all prayers Trinitarians pray in the Name of Jesus Christ. So, are the above

said activities in line with following scriptures?


1. Col. {3:17} And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, [do] all in the name of

the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.


See? Do all things, whether it is by word or deed, do all in the name of LORD JESUS, including baptism and not in the titles of Father Son Holy Ghost (without any name). 


Based on the above scripture trinitarians go against the Apostle’s doctrine and they are not on Lord Jesus’ side.


The following scriptures prove that they are cursed also. Why?


Read the below given scriptures:


1.  Col. {1:8} But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel

unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.


2.  {1:9} As we said before, so say I now again, If any [man] preach any other

gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.


So, trinitarians, you are on the wrong side. Come to Lord’s side. Otherwise,

sword/destruction/damnation is waiting for you, according to the following

scriptures. Read the 8th verse very carefully.


2 Theso. {1:7} And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall

be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels,


{1:8} In flaming fire taking vengeance on them that know not God, and that obey

not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ:


{1:9} Who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the

Lord, and from the glory of his power;


Trinitarians are the main culprit hindering souls to come to Jesus and know the

Apostolic Oneness truth.


Here is the proof. 


When they (Trinitarians) meet a person, who does not know Jesus, they will start with that person and say believe in Jesus, He is the savior of the world, Jesus will heal you, Jesus crucified for your sin, Jesus remitted your sin by shedding His blood on cross, Jesus is the answer for all the problem etc. etc. This time, they never say about Father Son and Holy Ghost. They never say, believe in Father Son and Holy Ghost, Father  Son and Holy Ghost will save you, Father Son Holy Ghost died for you etc. etc……..


See, here is the trick. However, after two or three months, they will tell that person who is coming to their congregation, obey the leader of that church and obey whatever they say. They will not teach them about baptism, the importance of baptism, the examples of baptism from the Bible. They simply quote a scripture, Mat.28:19 and baptize people in Father Son and Holy Ghost (without name baptism)


Therefore, I stated that, Trinitarians are the main culprit and hindrance to souls, knowing the Apostolic Truth, One God and baptism in Jesus name, which name only remit the sins of a sinner.


So, if any trinitarians think they can prove otherwise, show me.

Some protest the need for baptism in Jesus name and saying something like this, “ We are saved simply when we believe Jesus and call upon His name…”Calling on the name of the Lord”

Often times people will quote Romans 10:13 (“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”) not understanding what it means to “call on the name of the Lord” biblically. This verse in Romans 10:13 is actually a quote of Joel 2:32. This is the same exact verse the apostle Peter quoted in Acts chapter 2 at the Day of Pentecost. (Acts 2:21).

In Acts 2, we see that after Peter quotes them the verse in Joel they still ask Peter, (in Acts 2:37) “Brothers, what shall we do?” And Peter does not respond by telling them to say a prayer. Peter does not lead them in any prayer! NO! 

Instead PETER tells them what they must do to be saved. Peter gives them the answer mankind needs so desperately to hear. Peter declared to them,
“Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. 39The promise is for you and your children and for all who are far off--for all whom the Lord our God will call."

40 With many other words he warned them; and he pleaded with them, "Save yourselves from this corrupt generation." 41Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number that day”. (Acts 2:38-41).

The Bible tells us what it means “to call on the name of the Lord”. To “call on the name of the Lord” is equated with repentance and baptism into Christ’s name ( Acts 2:17-38;22:16)..
“Calling on the name of the Lord” being equated with baptism is further reinforced in Acts 22:16 says, “And now what are you waiting for?Get up, be baptized and wash your sins away, calling on his name.'”

James says, “Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says.” (James 1:22).

Some people still protest the need for baptism in Jesus name, and often they would always quote, John 3:16???For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life?

This is perhaps the most often quoted verse in the New Testament. It is often isolated and set apart from the rest of the dialogue in which it took place. Remember! To “believe in Jesus” means to believe the gospel message, and baptism is a part of that gospel message. It must also be remembered this verse is only one small part of a much larger conversation that Jesus had with Nicodemus. Verse 16 (of chapter 3) deals with faith JESUS. Repentance is talked about in regards to the snake that was lifted up and then again in verses 19-21. 

Verses 3 and 5 also deal with baptism. This shows the importance of looking at the overall picture and not focusing in on any single verse or passage.

Furthermore, the NIV is the only translation that uses the word “shall” in John 3:16. All other translations render this verse, “…whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” The NIV erroneously takes a “maybe” and turns it into a “will be”. 

According to James, faith alone, by itself, will not save us:
James 2:19-20--You believe that there is one God. Good! Even the demons believe that--and shudder. You foolish man, do you want evidence that faith without deeds is useless?
Faith must have actions to back it up with.
What about Acts 16:30-31??? He then brought them out and asked, "Sirs, what must I do to be saved?" They replied, "Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved--you and your household."

This verse is often quoted but then the questioner stops short right in the middle of the story. People like to quote verses 30 and 31 but they don’t quote verses 32 and 33. Those very next two verses state that the Word of the Lord was preached to them and then they were immediately baptized. We know from James 2:19-20 that the jailer did not stop once he had a belief in Jesus. Indeed, there was more as verses 32-33 illustrate so clearly. See Acts 16:16-33 for more detail. It does no good to tell someone about baptism unless they are first told the message of Jesus Christ. The first step is to believe, then baptism will be effectual. Faith in Christ is what gives baptism its significance. Obviously, it does no good to tell someone to get baptized unless they have first heard the message of the cross and the story of Jesus.

Some people would still protest the need for baptism in Jesus name, and they will always quote Scripture references from the Romans 10:9-10, “That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.
Remember first, Paul just finished explaining in Romans chapter 6, and in great detail, the role of baptism in Jesus name. This verse does not nullify that chapter. But it is of significance, however, to note the commentary on this verse in the NIV study Bible that states, --“Jesus is Lord”, the earliest confession of Christian faith, probably used at baptism.” The verbal confession of faith that Jesus is the Christ is made at baptism, and is what is seen in the case of the Ethiopian eunuch in Acts 8. Notice the eunuch asks to be baptized and Philip tells him “if you believe with all your heart, you may.” And then the Ethiopian eunuch confesses faith in Christ with his mouth, “I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.” He is then baptized. 
Read : Acts 8:26-40 (King James Version KJV).

Verse 26, And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.
Verse 27, And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,
Verse 28, Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.
Verse 29, Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.
Verse 30, And Philip ran thither to him, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?
Verse 31, And he said, How can I, except some man should guide me? And he desired Philip that he would come up and sit with him.
Verse 32, The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:
Verse 33, In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.
Verse 34, And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?
Verse 35, Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.
Verse 36, And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
Verse 37 ,And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
Verse 38, And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.
Verse 39, And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.
Verse 40, But Philip was found at Azotus: and passing through he preached in all the cities, till he came to Caesarea.

REMEMBER!!!! Notice belief never stands alone, by itself. There is always some other action associated with it. Jesus started preaching by telling us to “repent and believe the Good News.” Jesus also said in Luke 13:3 that unless we repent we will all perish. So, Therefore Jesus said, 
‘He that believeth and baptized shall be saved “ ( Mk 16:16).
Repent and believe.

Looking at it from another angle, notice also that baptism always has something else tied to it:
Believing (Acts 8:37; Mark 16:16)
Repentance (Acts 2:38) { Luke 13:3,5}
Confession of faith in Jesus Christ (Acts 8:36-37)
Which all leads to:
Being baptized in the name of JESUS CHRIST (in water) for the forgiveness of sins- and received the gift of the Holy Spirit-Acts 2:38!!!
This is where we get:
1.) Hear the Word
2.) Believe
3.) Repent of our sins
4.) Confess faith in Christ
5.) Be baptized in the name of Jesus for the forgiveness of sins and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit- Acts 2:38
It’s that simple?
I hope this helps!.

Should we actually invoke or utter the name of Jesus when baptizing a person? 
Some Trinitarian churches- do always argue that the phrase only means to baptize with Christ's authority and has no reference to the actual formula. Therefore, baptism in the Trinity formula is also valid.

In response, some Trinitarians argue that the phrase only means to baptize with Christ's authority and has no reference to the actual formula.

Remember. Jesus gave the church power and authority to cast out devils in His name and to pray for the healing of the sick in His name (Mark 16:17-18; James 5:14). How did the New Testament church implement this? The Apostle Peter declared to the lame man, "In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk" (Acts 3:6). He told the multitude, "And his name through faith in his name hath made this man strong" (Acts 3:16). Peter actually invoked the name of Jesus and also exercised faith in Jesus.
He told the Jewish council that the man was healed "by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth" (Acts 4:10), quoting the words he had used. When Paul cast a demon out of a young woman, he said, "I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her" (Acts 16:18). He called the name of Jesus. When the sons of Sceva sought to cast out demons, they said, "We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth" (Acts 19:13). They knew that Paul cast out demons by using the name of Jesus, so they attempted to do the same. They were unsuccessful because they did not have faith in Jesus or a genuine relationship with Him.

Whenever the Early Church exercised the power and authority of Jesus to obtain a spiritual work, they always invoked the name of Jesus in faith. Baptism for the remission of sins is no exception. Invoking the name Theologians and church historians generally recognize that the Book of Acts gives the baptismal formula of the Early Church.

HISTORICAL REFERENCES- ( HISTORICAL BAPTISM):
• The Encyclopedia of Religion and ethics states, with respect to New Testament baptism, "The formula used was "in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ" or some synonymous phrase; there is no evidence for the use of the trine name:"
• The Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible says, "The evidence of Acts 2:38; 10:4-8 (cf. 8:16; 19:5), supported by Galatians 3:27, Romans 6:3, suggests that baptism in early Christianity was administered, not in the three-fold name, but "in the name of Jesus Christ" or "in the name of the Lord Jesus:" This is the natural reading of the phrase, "baptized in the name of Jesus Christ;' and a person must use questionable and twisted methods of biblical interpretation to deny that the words mean what they appear to mean.

According to both the Bible and history, the New Testament church invoked the name of Jesus at water baptism. Its baptismal formula was "in the name of Jesus Christ" or "Lord Jesus;' not "in the name of the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.' The Scriptural Record Every time the Bible records the name or formula associated with an actual baptism in the New Testament church, it was the name Jesus. All five such accounts occur in the Book of Acts, the history book of the Early Church. It records that the following people were baptized in Jesus' name.

• The Jews. "Then Peter said unto to them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost." (Acts 2:38).
• The Samaritans. "They were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus" (Acts 8:16).
• The Gentiles. "And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord" (Acts 10:48). (The earliest Greek manuscripts say, "in the name of Jesus Christ," as do most versions today.)

• The disciples of John (rebaptized). "They were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus" (Acts 19:5).
• The Apostle Paul. "Arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord" (Acts 22:16).

• Moreover, the Epistles contain a number of references or allusions to baptism in Jesus' name. See Romans 6:3-4; I Corinthians 1:13; 6:11; Galatians 3:27; Colossians 2:12; James 2:17.

The only verse of Scripture that anyone could appeal to in support of a threefold baptismal formula is Matthew 28:19, in which Jesus commanded baptism "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:' The word name in this verse is singular, however, indicating that the phrase describes one supreme name by which the one God is revealed, not three names of three persons.

The apostles understood Christ's words as a description of His own name, for they fulfilled His command by baptizing in the name of Jesus Gangte Christian ( Acts 2:38;8:16;10:48;19:5;Gal 3:27; Romans 6:3-5; Acts 22:16). There is only one God (Deuteronomy 6:4), and He has one supreme name today (Zechariah 14:9). Jesus is the incarnation of all the fulness of the Godhead (Colossians 2:9). 

Jesus is the only saving name (Acts 4:12; Matt 1:21), the name in which we receive remission of sins, the highest name made known to us, and the name in which we are to say and do all things (Acts 4:12; 10:4-3; Philippians 2:9-11; Colossians 3:17). Thus the one supreme, saving name of Matthew 28:19 is Jesus. We are to fulfill the command of that verse as the Early Church did, by invoking the name of Jesus at baptism.

The Historical Record Respected historical sources verify that the early Christian church did not use a threefold baptismal formula but invoked the name of Jesus in baptism well into the second and third centuries.

• Encyclopedia of Religion and Ethics (1951), II, 384, 389: "The formula used was 'in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ' or some synonymous phrase; there is no evidence for the use of the trine name. . . . The earliest form, represented in the Acts, was simple immersion . . . in water, the use of the name of the Lord, and the laying on of hands. To these were added, at various times and places which cannot be safely identified, (a) the trine name (Justin), . . "
• Interpreter's Dictionary of the Bible (1962), I, 351: "The evidence ...suggests that baptism in early Christianity was administered, not in the threefold name, but 'in the name of Jesus Christ' or 'in the name of the Lord Jesus'."
• Otto Heick, A History of Christian Thought (1965), I, 87: "At first baptism was administered in the name of Jesus, but gradually in the name of the Triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit."
• Hastings's Dictionary of the Bible (1898), I, 24-1: "(One could conclude that) the original form of words was 'into the name of Jesus Christ' or 'the Lord Jesus: Baptism into the name of the Trinity was a later development."
• Williston Walker, A History of the Christian Church (1947), page 58: The trinitarian baptismal formula . . . was displacing the older baptism in the name of Christ."
• The New Schaff-Herzog Religious Encyclopedia (1957), I, 435: "The New Testament knows only baptism in the name of Jesus . . . , which still occurs even in the second and third centuries."
• " Canney's Encyclopedia of Religions (1970), page 53: "Persons were baptized at first 'in the name of Jesus Christ' . . . or 'in the name of the Lord Jesus: . . . . Afterwards, with the development of the doctrine of the Trinity, they were baptized 'in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost'."
• Encyclopedia Bibilca (1899), I 4-73: "It is natural to conclude that baptism was administered in the earliest times 'in the name of Jesus Christ; or 'in the name of the Lord Jesus: . . . This view is confirmed by the fact that the earliest forms of the baptismal confession appear to have been single-not triple, as was the later creed."
• The Catholic Encyclopedia, II, 263: "The baptismal formula was changed from the name of Jesus Christ to the words Father, Son, and Holy Spirit by the Catholic Church in the second century."

Today as a Christian, we should use the biblical baptismal formula as found in the New Testament ( Acts 2:38;10;48;19:5; Gal 3:27; Acts 22;16; 8:16; Romans 6:3-5; Col 3:17). 

Everyone should be baptized by immersion in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ for the remission of sins- Acts 2:38-41! 

Today we are commanded to obey the gospel of Christ and continue in the apostles doctrine (Acts 2:38-47; John 3:5;. Rom 10:10; Rev 2:10; Acts 2:42; 2 Jn 9). 

Do this and live forever.
LIVE FOREVER-obey ACTS 2:38!
