Funk >> this is true about the whole bible. the pattern . . . . patterns as well. like the numbers.
While this all sounds good, your post lacks sufficient evidence for others to draw similar conclusions.
Funk >> I learned this a few years ago. Some people see it some dont. I cant understand how you cannot see it.
“It” can be just about anything . . .
Funk >> it like this..take me for example. im a father and a son and a brother(hmm is that good example?)
Who knows? Your hypothesis is poorly presented using the most generic terms possible. I am a bricklayer, ballplayer and a fisherman with a host of
other titles . . .
Funk >> ....its kinda hard for people to understand that jesus is the father the son and the holyghost.
We disagree. Jesus is the “Son of God” (John 1:34), while “Christ Jesus” is the Father + Son + Holy Spirit in a single Heavenly, “one
Mediator” (3 into 1) “man” (1Tim. 2:5). Jesus Christ is the ‘incarnation’ of Christ Jesus on this earth. Scripture says,
“But God, being rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, even when we were dead in our transgressions, made us alive
together with Christ
(by grace you have been saved), and raised us up with Him
, and seated us with Him
in the heavenly [places]
Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us “IN”
Christ Jesus.” Ephesians 2:4-7.
Believers have been seated “with” Jesus Christ who God raised from the dead and above ‘all the heavens’ (Eph. 4:10) “IN” Christ Jesus, who
is the Father, Son and Holy Spirit joined 3 into the 1 in Heaven above. The Father, Son and Holy Spirit represent the restored “Logos” (Word) of
John 1:1-3 who became flesh (John 1:14) in the Person (incarnation) of Jesus Christ on the earth. The Logos incarnated upon our earth 2000 years ago
and God raised Him from the dead to sit Him “IN” Himself (Christ Jesus) at His right hand.
Funk >> this is why he said to baptize in the NAME of the father the son and the holyghost(matthew 28:19)...and that name is jesus.
We disagree. Christ is referencing three totally separate and distinct ‘kingdom’ baptisms in Matthew 28:19. The first kingdom baptism is
John’s baptism (Acts 8:12, 19:3) in water for the forgiveness of sins, which prepares the kingdom disciple to receive the ‘second’ (Acts 8:16,
19:5) baptism in the name of the Lord Jesus. Only then can the kingdom disciple receive the Holy Spirit through the laying of hands (Acts 8:17,
19:6). I explain the differences between the three kingdom baptisms and our ‘one baptism’ (Eph. 4:5) for today here:
Funk >> This is why I have been baptized in the name of Jesus and not the phrase the father and the son and the Holyghost (catholic way to baptize)
why would I leave his name out??
You are borrowing doctrinal components of the ‘gospel of the kingdom’ (Gospel #1 from OP) and adding them to Paul’s “word of the cross”
(1Cor. 1:18 = Gospel #2) to create a good news message that God sent to NOBODY. The Holy Spirit baptizes us into Christ through Paul’s ‘one
baptism’ described in 1Cor. 12:13, so we can be ‘baptized into Christ’ (Gal. 3:27) Himself.
Funk >> this is why peter said...repent, be baptized in jesus name and you will recieve the holyghost..Acts 2:38
Peter is still baptizing in water for the forgiveness of sins, just like John the Baptist from day one! Mark 1:4+5. Paul would not submit the
“gospel I preach among the Gentiles (Gal. 2:2 = Gospel #2), until twenty years later at the famous meeting in Jerusalem (Acts 15, Galatians 2). You
are trying to get saved through obeying the Gospel of the Kingdom that has saved nobody for just about 2000 years.
In Christ Jesus through Paul's Gospel,
