From The Dakes Bible

Ten Proofs the Baptism Is For ALl

  • John predicted that Christ would baptize all people ( Mt. 3: 11; Jn. 1: 33).
  • Jesus promised it to everyone who would believe in Him ( Jn. 7: 37- 39).
  • Jesus promised the Spirit to all children of God who would ” ask Him” ( Lk. 11: 9- 13).
  • Jesus commanded all men to tarry ” until ye be endued with power from on high” ( Lk. 24: 49; Acts 1: 4- 8).
  • Jesus promised His power and anointing to every believer ( Acts 1: 4- 8 Jn. 14: 12; Mk. 16: 17- 18).
  • Peter promised it to all men ( Acts 2: 38- 39 5: 32).  Peter predicted that it would be given to all men in the last days ( Acts 2: 16- 21).
  • Jesus died that all men might have it ( Gal. 3: 13- 14).
  • The promised Spirit in Gal. 3: 14 is the same as in Jn. 7: 37- 39 14: 16- 17, 26 15: 26; 16: 13- 15 Acts 1: 4- 8 2: 38- 39).
  • The early church expected all believers to receive it and saw to it that they did get it ( Acts 8: 14- 18 9: 17; 19: 1- 6).
  • That all the above applies to Gentiles as well as to Jews is clear in Mt. 3: 11; Jn. 7: 37- 39 Acts 2: 16- 21, 38- 39 5: 32; 10: 44- 48 11: 14- 18 15: 7- 11 Gal. 3: 13- 14 Rom. 10: 12.
