Jesus Our Baptizer

three crosses Jesus died for the sins of the world

There are things in God’s Word that are absolutely amazing!

 

Jesus became a man.

He humbled himself

by becoming obedient to death—

even death on a cross!

Philippians 2:9

9Therefore God exalted him

to the highest place

and gave him the name

that is above every name,

10that at the

name of Jesus

every knee should bow,

in heaven

and on earth

and under the earth,

11and every tongue acknowledge

 that Jesus Christ is Lord,

to the glory of

God the Father.

Then the prophet Isaiah gives us names that describe Jesus.

Isa 9:6 For unto us a child is born,

unto us a son is given,

and the government will be upon His shoulders.

And He will be called

Wonderful Counselor,

Mighty God,

Everlasting Father,

Prince of Peace.

I’ve shared with you many times how precious the redemptive names are to me in my worship time.

There are 7 Redemptive names that open and disclose the benefit package that Jesus purchased for everyone of us at the cross.

Let me briefly review them with you.

His continual Presence JEHOVAH-SHAMMAH

Shepherd, Guide, Protector, Nourisher JEHOVAH-RA-AH

Peace, wholeness, Salvation JEHOVAH-SHALOM

Righteousness   JEHOVAH-TSIDKENU

Victory JEHOVAH-NISSI

Provider JEHOVAH-JIREH

 

John 3:16 describes Jesus as God’s Gift.

Jesus the Lamb of God that was come to save the world from their sin.

 

Luke 3:16 describes Jesus as the baptizer.

He explains that I baptize you with water, but He will baptize you with fire.

John 1:32 NIV Then John gave this testimony:

“I saw the Spirit come down from heaven as a dove and remain on him.

33 And I myself did not know him, but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me, ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’

 

I love to begin my prayer time by thanking God using His name and names that describe His nature. But I don’t think I have ever used the descriptive word “baptizer” for Him.

 

I am so thankful that Jesus is still the baptizer.

He still wants to baptize believers with the Holy Spirit.

Jesus still want to baptize believers with the Holy Spirit and fire.

 

I am so thankful!
