45 And they of the circumcision which believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because that on the Gentiles also was poured out the gift of the Holy Ghost.
46 For they heard them speak with tongues, and magnify God. Then answered Peter,
47 Can any man forbid water, that these should not be baptized, which have received the Holy Ghost as well as we?
48 And he commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord. Then prayed him to tarry certain days. KJV
Peter did not baptize anyone in the name of Jesus. He and Paul and others baptized in the name of Yashua, which the Jews understood the meaning. Yashua means, something saved i.e. deliverance hence aid, Victory, prosperity; deliverance, health- help(ing), salvation, save (be made whole) saving (health).
Five hundred years after the Apostles (sent ones) died, the name Yashua was changed to Jesus, and (it came from the name ‘ZEUS’, a Greek god)
During the one thousand years of the Millennium reign of YASHUA, when He rules all nations Rev 20:1-6 1 And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand.
2 And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years,
3 And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little season.
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
5 But the rest of the dead lived not again until the thousand years were finished. This is the first resurrection.
6 Blessed and holy is he that hath part in the first resurrection: on such the second death hath no power, but they shall be priests of God and of Christ, and shall reign with him a thousand years. KJV
Those who worship the image will not be saved; Yashua will cause all the nations to speak a PURE language. The Hebrew is the only language not associated with pagan gods
Zephaniah 3:9 For then will I turn to the people a pure language, that they may all call upon the name of the LORD, to serve him with one consent. KJV
Since His name was changed from Yashua five hundred years after the death of the Apostles to Jesus as I have explained earlier, Every one of us who has been saved every manner of sickness, and all manner of disease, saved from demons, blindness, deformities, raised from the dead etc. we were all saved by someone who called out to our heavenly father, praying the prayer of faith, using the pagan name ‘Jesus’ by faith in that name, we were made whole, because that is the way we know Him, Jesus!
Every one of us who have prayed the prayer of faith in the name of Jesus, for someone who had faith in Jesus and what He did for us, have had the privilege of being there when the Lord stretched out His hand
Acts 4:29-30 29 And now, Lord, behold their threatenings: and grant unto thy servants, that with all boldness they may speak thy word, 30 By stretching forth thine hand to heal; and that signs and wonders may be done by the name of thy holy child Jesus. KJV
Acts 3:12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk? KJV When the Lord stretched for his hand, Peter called on the name of Yashua
We have been a witness to the Lord’s saving grace, seeing the dead raised, healings for all manner of sickness and diseases, freed from demons, blindness, deformities, we had it right and wrong at the same time.
The Lord Himself knew that, in our ignorance of the truth, would had been a hindrance that satan would have taken advantage of, BUT in His love, grace and mercy for us, we are His children.
I suggest that all of you who are His, to set this newspaper down for a moment, and raise your hearts and hands to the throne of our Father in heaven and thank Him for His Love, Grace and Mercy.
Let us look again at verse 19 of Matthew 16 (And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.) the authority given Peter the unstable rock, and all Apostles (sent ones) Mark 6:7 And he called unto him the twelve, and began to send them forth by two and two; and gave them power over unclean spirits; The Greek word for Power is ‘EXOUSIA’ meaning Authority, delegated power; the liberty and right to put forth power.
Peter later in his life, in judgment, with approval from the head of the church ‘Yashua” announce to Ananias and Sapphira that they would die, for lying to the Spirit of the Holy one. The act of judgment comes under the statement of Peter in Acts 3:12 And when Peter saw it, he answered unto the people, ye men of Israel, why marvel ye at this? Or why look ye so earnestly on us, as though by our own power or holiness we had made this man to walk?
21 From that time forth began Jesus to shew unto his disciples, how that he must go unto Jerusalem, and suffer many things of the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised again the third day.
22 Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee.
23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.
24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me.
25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.
In Matthew 16:22, Peter expose himself as to the kind of stone he is, he did not believe the scriptures or know them, that would reveal what would happen to Him as the Lamb of ‘Yahweh’=God
Acts 4:13 now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus. KJV
John 5:39 Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me. KJV to be continued
