   Now I do not advocate being baptized twice. I believe that in one country people are baptized every year, but, as far as I can tell, they are not any the better for that! However, here you have the two baptisms alongside one another. John said: "I indeed baptize you in water... but he that cometh after me is mightier than I... he shall baptize you in the Holy Spirit." Water in the Old Testament speaks of judgment and death. You ask Noah about that! You remember that the Apostle Peter refers to the flood as the baptism of that time (1 Peter 3:21), and that was a baptism indeed! If you asked those people: 'What did your baptism mean to you?', and they were able to answer you, they would say: 'Well, it was judgment and death. That is what the water meant to us.' Go on a little further in the Old Testament and ask Pharaoh about water. You know that the Apostle Paul tells the Corinthians that the Israelites were "all baptized into Moses in the sea" (verse 2), so the Red Sea was a baptistry. If you asked Pharaoh and his army what their baptism meant, they would answer: 'It was judgment and death.'

This was the baptism of water in the Old Testament, and John's baptism was the baptism of judgment and death. But he said: 'He who comes after me will baptize in the Spirit', and that is life and salvation, that is baptism into the Saviour and not into death and judgment, and that is baptism into eternal life.

Your messages have no dates/times.

It's impossible to tell when you wrote them or if you answered anyone.

   They have dates and times on my screen.   In the T. Austin Sparks folder, the posts are copy/pastes from his writings.

This one has Sep.5 without a time under PAULFROMNYS but I don't recall the others. I'll check again.

I like the Delphi system better.

Your system shows the number of messages available even after they've been read.

Blessings,

Len

They all have the date there but no time. The most recent from me has a time but no date.

Sorry.

   I see time and date unless it is the current day which then only gives time.
