Part 2 will appear in the bottom corner near the end. Against popular demand, Youtube no longer has an editing option …
You cannot revolve an entire system of beliefs around just one verse in the Bible? Acts 2:38 is the most widely used Scripture to promote the overall apostolic faith. They claim that they follow the whole word of God when in fact they ignore and deny much of it.
What’s worse is that we do not even have the full bible as it was before many books were removed. But that’s another issue …
There is so much more to consider after being baptized. Like dropping satanic holidays and pagan traditions. Like helping people instead of turning them away and leaving them in government hands. Like being less materialistic in church and at home (also holidays and pagan traditions) and being more concerned with preparations and survival plans.
Like realizing politics and government control your entire lives with lies and deception. Using military and police to dominate and destroy. Creating mass shooting incidents with trained hitmen and putting a false shooter (actor) in the news. Like admitting this is not and never was a free country. That our “privileges” and resources are stolen with the blood of innocents falling at the hands of our armies and always has been.
Our entire country is built and maintained on corporate lies, slavery and mass murder. Just being baptized isn’t enough. You have to wake up to the lies before you can even begin to preach any truth!

But usually the Lord drives us to despair of earthly joy and help from ourselves, that, being shut from every other door, we will knock at Mercy’s gate. In too many cases today, we see people turning a blind eye to God’s calling and they seek other methods of distraction and satisfaction …
From that time Israel would be more truly attached to the Lord; no longer calling him Baali, or My lord and master, alluding to authority rather than love, but Ishi, an address of affection.
This may foretell the restoration from the Babylonian captivity; and also be applied to the conversion of the Jews to Christ in the days of the apostles and the future general conversion of that nation.
Genuine believers are able to expect infinitely more tenderness and kindness from their holy God, than a beloved wife can expect from even the kindest husband.
When the people were weaned from idols and loved the Lord, no creature could do them any harm.
This should be understood of the blessings and privileges of the spiritual Israel, of the true believer, and the partaking of God’s righteousness.
Here is an argument for us to walk so that God may not be dishonored by us: “Thou art My people.” God calls us His children …
If a man’s family walks disorderly, it is a dishonor to the Master.
