Name of Jesus Sermon - Pastor Steve Winter

Why did Jesus tell his followers they would be hated? Was it because
they would have worship services or because they would live right?
(answer provided at the end of this post)

Matthew 28:18 And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, All power is
given unto me in heaven and in earth.

* Jesus declared that he had ALL POWER by himself, then he commanded
that baptism be administered in a singular name.

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them
in the name ...

Notice Jesus said "name" (singular); Then He went on to describe that
singular name.

Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them
in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

When the apostles that heard Jesus speak, baptised; they used a name
as Jesus had commanded. They did not "parrot" the description of the
name, but, they used the name itself, because,

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none
other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one
of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye
shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

John 20:31 But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is
the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life
through his name.

Ye might have life through his NAME.

Acts 4:18 And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all
nor teach in the name of Jesus.

Acts 8:16 (For as yet he was fallen upon none of them: only they were
baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.)

Acts 19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of
repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him
which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
Acts 19:5 When they heard [this], they were baptized in the name of
the Lord Jesus.

Philippians 2:10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of
[things] in heaven, and [things] in earth, and [things] under the
earth;

Colossians 3:17 And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the
name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.

Ooopsie for the trinitarian here. They would now have to declare
the "Father" and "God" to be two more separate persons.

The false church refuses to "do all" in the name of Jesus. They
refuse to baptise in the name of "Jesus". They refuse the NAME,
while parroting or "chanting" the description of the name.

Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake:
but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

Mark 13:13 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but
he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

Luke 21:17 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake.

Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none
other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.

The phrase "calling on the name of the Lord" appears only ONCE
in the entire Bible.

Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and
wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.

So how does one "call on the name of the Lord" and have their
sins washed away?

Acts 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every
one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and
ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
Acts 2:39 For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to
all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call.

We can look at the example of the scriptures as well. What did
these folks do IMMEDIATELY when Paul told them to believe on Jesus?

Acts 19:4 Then said Paul, John verily baptized with the baptism of
repentance, saying unto the people, that they should believe on him
which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
Acts 19:5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of
the Lord Jesus.
