  •   Question  is  often  asked,  “Does  a  person  have  to  be  baptised  to  be   saved?  The  answer  is  an  emphatic  yes  –  but  not  by  Water  Baptism.   Rom 6:3 Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death?   1 Cor 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.   Water  Baptism  is  a  public  confession  of  a  private  confirmation.  When   we  are  saved,  we  are  baptized  by  the  Holy  Spirit.       Contents Lesson 1: Know Ye Not................................................................................................................................ 3                 All  rights  reserved.  Anyone  may  use  this  material  so  long  as  no  changes  to  the  content  and  intent  of  the  study  are   made.  By  using  this  material  the  user  promises  to  remain  true  to  the  contents  of  this  booklet  and  more  importantly  to   the  Biblical  mandate  which  this  study  upholds.     Copyright  ©  2010  New  Life  Bible  Chapel.     2  |  P a g e    
  •   Lesson  1:  Know,  Reckon,  Yield   Romans  6   Though  read  during  the  Water  Baptism  Service,  this  is  not  a  reference  to  water  baptism.  This  is  about  the   salvation  experience  and  water  Baptism  is  merely  the  expression  of  that  Salvation.       God’s  method  of  dealing  with  sin   • Sinners:  Justification   • Believers:  Identification       Up  to  chapter  6  Paul  does  not  discuss  Sanctification  and  from  this  point  on  does  not  discuss  Justification   of  a  Sinner.  They  are  contrasted  in  chapter  6.   Justification   • Sanctification   • An  act   • Work     • Means   • The  end   • Removes  guilt  and  penalty  of  sin   • Growth  and  power  over  sin   • Works  for  us   • Works  in  us   • Declares  us  righteous   • Makes  us  righteous   • Furnishes  the  track  to  heaven   • Furnishes  the  train  to  heaven       Rom  6    –  Three  states  (vs.  22)   • Non  Posse,  non  Pecare       :  Not  able  not  to  sin  before  Salvation.   • Posse  non  Pecare     :  Able  not  to  sin,  after  Salvation.  Power  to  live  victoriously.   • Non  Posse,  Pecare     :  Not  able  to  sin,  after  rapture.   Baptism  and  its  meaning  (Vs  3)   • Buried:  Baptism  is  identification.  Not  just  for  me  but  as  me.   • Raised:  Baptism  is  an  accomplishment.  Resurrection  for  the  glory  of  the  Father.   At  the  death  of  a  criminal  the  charges  are  dropped.  Burial  of  Jesus  is  part  of  the  Gospel,  and  so  is   resurrection  and  ascension.  Likewise,  we  are  not  just  dead,  but  buried  and  raised  up  anew,  awaiting  for   the  glorification.   Equating  baptism  to  burial  requires  immersion.  Quasi  burial;  an  identification  with  the  death  of  Lord   Jesus  Christ.  The  purpose  of  the  link  to  resurrection  is  that  our  lives  ought  to  be  changed.     3  |  P a g e    
  •   I   KNOW  YE  NOT:    The  Identification.  Rom  6:3   • 14  things  that  Paul  bears  on  our  mind  that  we  now  know  because  of  Salvation  in  Christ.   • Christ  giving  Himself  for  us.   • We  cannot  die  for  our  sins,  but  we  can  die  to  sin.  Phil  2:17.   II   Reckon  Ye:  The  Impartation.  Rom  6:11   • Count  yourself  alive  to  Christ.  Present  tense.   • Christ  giving  Himself  to  us.   • This  is  an  active,  daily  attitude.   III   Yield:  The  Implication  Rom  6:13   • Christ  gave  up  and  now  you  give  in.   • You  got  a  new  master  and  so  serve  Him.   o Vs.  12-­‐13  :  Sin  dethroned   o Vs.  13:  Saviour  enthroned   o Vs  .  18:  Saint  enslaved.   • Leads  to:   o Vs.  18:  New  Freedom   o Vs.  19:  New  Faithfulness   o Vs.  21:  New  Fruitfulness     Therefore   • Chapter  5:  Therefore  of  Justification   • Chapter  8:  Therefore  of  Sanctification   • Chapter  12:  Therefore  of  Dedication   Present  your  bodies  therefore,  not  as  the  Gnostics  to  pleasure,  but  to  God  as  a  sacrifice.  Sacrifice  is   being  dead,  dead  to  sin  but  alive  to  God.       4  |  P a g e    
  •   Baptism  of  the  Holy  Spirit   Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.   1 Cor 12:13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit.   The  Baptism  of  the  Holy  Spirit  happens  the  moment  you  are  saved.  You  cannot  have  any  personal   relationship  without  the  Holy  Spirit.     The  Second  Blessing  or  the  Second  Work  of  Grace,  which  teaches  the  complete  present  Sanctification  or   the  “equipping”  of  the  Saint  for  the  work  of  the  Lord  at  a  later  date  is  not  Biblical.  Ephesians  4:8,  gifts   were  received  on  the  day  we  entered  the  Kingdom  of  God.   The  idea  of  the  gap  between  Salvation  and  Baptism  of  the  Holy  Spirit  comes  from  four  narrations  in  Acts.   1. Acts  2.  Day  of  Pentecost.    Jews  in  Jerusalem.   • They  were  Christ  followers  and  it  fell  on  each  of  them  without  exclusion.   • Num  11:29.  Moses’  prayer  was  that  each  of  them  would  receive  the  Spirit.   • Tongues  of  fire  marked  visually  that  all  received  the  Spirit.   • Joel  prophecies  and  Peter  confirms  that  this  happened  on  the  day  of  Pentecost.   • Day  of  Pentecost  marks  the  day  of  God’s  outpouring  of  the  Holy  Spirit  on  His  people.   2. Acts  8:5;  14-­‐17.  Samaria.   • They  received  the  Word  first,  and  Holy  Spirit  was  received  later  by  the  laying  of  hands.   • The  Holy  Spirit  was  poured  on  all  of  the  Saints.   3. Acts  10.  God  Fearers.  Gentiles  who  believed  in  Jehovah.   • Vs.  44.  “all  those”.  It  fell  on  all.   • Gift  on  the  God  fearing  gentiles.  These  were  Proselytes  who  believed  on  God.   • Resulted  in  water  baptism,  and  received  as  full  members  of  the  community  of  Church.   4. Acts  19.  Gentiles  in  Ephesus.   Four  accounts  of  Pentecostal  outpouring.   • All  believers  received   • Records  four  distinct  groups  of  people  –  Jews-­‐Samarians-­‐  God  fearers  –  Gentiles.   • Luke  is  tracking  the  natural  progression  of  the  Gospel  –  Jerusalem-­‐Judea-­‐  Samaria-­‐Uttermost   parts  of  the  earth.   • Each  people  group  is  touched  and  God  certifies  their  privilege  and  membership  with  the  body  of   Christ.   Let  us  not  hold  too  low  a  view  of  the  Pentecost  and  make  Salvation  an  emotional  issue.  While  emotions   are  reflective  of  the  shallowest  part  of  the  mind;  Salvation  really  is  at  the  deepest  level.   5  |  P a g e
