“Paul” does not declare that he was “saved” or “born again” in an experience of seeing “the RCC ‘Jesus'” that struck him blind on the Road To Assyria [Damascus capitol city; as Jerusalem is capitol city to Israel; in full display of an antichrist Luciferian apparition falsely claiming to be “Jesus”].
“Paul” testifies in Acts 22:16 that by the Roman Catholic Church Sacrament of water baptism: his sins were washed away. That is a false salvation.Tweet
Acts 22:16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
Now, I am going to compare and contrast Roman Catholicism with the Protestant Church. The two are opposite. I am a Protestant, born again, and Spirit filled believer in the true Lord Jesus Christ of scripture and history [Jesus Christ spoke in the Red Letters of Matthew and John]. There may be Roman Catholics or others who are not Protestant born again saints of God in Jesus Christ who read this post or hear the video I will do of it. So, I want all to see that the Protestant Church and the Roman Catholic Church are two different and opposite churches.
The Protestant Church rejects the Roman Catholic “path of salvation” as errant and of no effect. The Roman Catholic Church depends upon Roman Catholic sacraments, rites, initiation into mystery religion, belonging to the Roman Catholic Church thereby, submission to the Roman Catholic priesthood hierarchy in membership in the church, penance, and good works for salvation.
The Protestant Church declares the Roman Catholic Church to be a false church preaching a false “Jesus” who is Lucifer of the Babylonian mystery religions. “Paul” as I have shown in other blog posts here and here ~ comes as the Assyrian Antichrist first pope of Rome. Paul preaches and declares the “Jesus” of the Roman Catholic Church who is Lucifer. And, this is why, “Paul” declares that his sins were washed away not by living faith by the real Holy Spirit in the true Jesus of history and true scripture of the true gospels in a born again salvation; but rather by the initiation rite of sacrament of Roman Catholic baptism. “Paul”, thereby, is initiated into the Babylonian mystery religions in the new religion of Roman Catholicism he comes to found as it’s first pope.
The Roman Catholic Church holds as it’s doctrine that a person is washed of all their sins by being baptized into the Roman Catholic Church: under the Roman papacy priesthood and it’s God [Lucifer]. Please note from the Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church that the “sacraments” are called “initiation” into the “mystery”. The Roman Catholic Church through rites of sacraments initiates it’s members into the Babylonian mystery religion of worship of Lucifer. In the RCC initiation rites of sacraments, there is no real and true born again salvation through believing in the real Jesus of history; the words of Jesus recorded for us in the gospel of Matthew and John. Rather, in this system, one is baptized into a cult in which a man ~ the pope ~ is Christ and men ~ the priests ~ are Christ ~ and in which believers become gods and God.
460 The Word became flesh to make us “partakers of the divine nature“:78 “For this is why the Word became man, and the Son of God became the Son of man: so that man, by entering into communion with the Word and thus receiving divine sonship, might become a son of God.”79 “For the Son of God became man so that we might become God.”80 “The only-begotten Son of God, wanting to make us sharers in his divinity, assumed our nature, so that he, made man, might make men gods.“81Source: The Vatican Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church point 460
This is a completely different “Jesus” than the true Jesus who is the true God the Son and Savior; a completely different religion than the real Jesus preached. It’s a religion of initiation by rites into worship of Lucifer. It’s a religion where one “believes one’s sins are washed away” by the sacrament of water baptism; a sacramental water baptism initiation into the mystery religion of the Babylonian church. [Position held by the Protestant Church.]
And this is the baptism of “Paul” and his “salvation”. It is not a salvation that the Protestant Church receives as true born again salvation.
THE CELEBRATION OF THE CHRISTIAN MYSTERY
THE SEVEN SACRAMENTS OF THE CHURCH
THE SACRAMENTS OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION
THE SACRAMENT OF BAPTISM
1213 Holy Baptism is the basis of the whole Christian life, the gateway to life in the Spirit (vitae spiritualis ianua),4 and the door which gives access to the other sacraments. Through Baptism we are freed from sin and reborn as sons of God; we become members of Christ, are incorporated into the Church and made sharers in her mission: “Baptism is the sacrament of regeneration through water in the word.“5
I. WHAT IS THIS SACRAMENT CALLED?
1214 This sacrament is called Baptism, after the central rite by which it is carried out: to baptize (Greek baptizein) means to “plunge” or “immerse”; the “plunge” into the water symbolizes the catechumen’s burial into Christ’s death, from which he rises up by resurrection with him, as “a new creature.“6
1215 This sacrament is also called “the washing of regeneration and renewal by the Holy Spirit,” for it signifies and actually brings about the birth of water and the Spirit without which no one “can enter the kingdom of God.”7
1216 “This bath is called enlightenment, because those who receive this [catechetical] instruction are enlightened in their understanding . . . .”8 Having received in Baptism the Word, “the true light that enlightens every man,” the person baptized has been “enlightened,” he becomes a “son of light,” indeed, he becomes “light” himself:9Baptism is God’s most beautiful and magnificent gift. . . .We call it gift, grace, anointing, enlightenment, garment of immortality, bath of rebirth, seal, and most precious gift. It is called gift because it is conferred on those who bring nothing of their own; grace since it is given even to the guilty; Baptism because sin is buried in the water; anointing for it is priestly and royal as are those who are anointed; enlightenment because it radiates light; clothing since it veils our shame; bath because it washes; and seal as it is our guard and the sign of God’s Lordship.10Source: The Vatican Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church
What we see in the testimony of “Paul” in “Acts”: is that he says he saw a spectre on the Road To Assyria [Damascus it’s capitol] that struck him blind. I have done blog posts showing that the real Jesus heals the blind; but a demon power strikes people blind. When the spectre struck “Paul” blind ~ “Paul” said by “seeing the light and ‘glory’ of the spectre”: no revelatory power of the light revealed Jesus to “Paul”. “Paul” had to ask, “Who are you?” That’s not right. If it was the true Jesus and the real Holy Spirit: in the power of the light would have been revelatory power of the Holy Spirit revealing to the heart of “Paul” who Jesus Is. And “Paul” would have been born again by living faith in the true Jesus of scripture revealed to his heart by the Holy Spirit. But it was not the real Holy Spirit. Because “Paul” was struck blind and ignorant by the light not knowing who this spectre was.
After seeing the spectre on the Road To Assyria [Damascus], “Paul” did not know who Jesus is. “Paul” was still in his sins; not born again in Acts 22. Then, says he washed away his sins by water baptism [that’s Roman Catholic]. “Paul” is not saved.Tweet
The spectre told “Paul” that he would go into the city, into Damascus [two different lying versions of the same story of where he would go stated differently in those two versions] and there “someone else” would tell him what he was to do.
Acts 9: 3 And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven: 4 and he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? 5 And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks. 6 And he trembling and astonished said, Lord, what wilt thou have me to do? And the Lord said unto him, Arise, and go into the city, and it shall be told thee what thou must do.
Neither is that spiritually sound. Because the real Holy Spirit leads us by the indwelling Holy Spirit. “Paul” had no personal leadership of the Holy Spirit from his experience; and “Paul” was still in his sins. Another man, “Ananias”, came and told him “what to do” to be saved. Ananias never preaches the true gospel of the true Jesus to “Paul”. Ananias never tells “Paul” who the true Jesus is. “Paul” never comes to saving faith in the true Jesus through the preaching of the true gospel of the cross of Jesus Christ, who Jesus is, and the death of Jesus for our sins: the need to believe in the true Jesus Christ by true revelatory power of the real Holy Spirit to be born again.
Instead, “Ananias” tells “Paul” that he has seen “the Lord” on the Road To Assyria: and to be saved ~ “Paul” is to wash away his sins in the Roman Catholic sacrament of water baptism. Which is how a person is initiated into the Babylonian mystery religions in worship of Lucifer. [As held by the Protestant Church believing in born again salvation by living faith in the true Jesus of true scripture; wrought by the power of the real Holy Spirit revealing the true Jesus to the heart of a true believer in Jesus Christ.]
In fact, “Ananias” never one time declares the name of Jesus Christ to “Paul”. Not one time is the name of Jesus Christ spoken by “Ananias”. Neither is “Ananias” declared to be a true born again saint of God in Jesus Christ. Rather, “Ananias” is declared to be a Pharisee figure: “a devout man according to the law”. A man declared to be “a devout man according to the law” is a man who has not been cleansed from his sins by the blood of Jesus Christ by believing on the Lord Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit; but who rather is counting upon his good works to save him according to law. This, too, is Roman Catholic [as held by the Protestant Church].
Acts 22:12 And one Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good report of all the Jews which dwelt there, 13 came unto me, and stood, and said unto me, Brother Saul, receive thy sight. And the same hour I looked up upon him. 14 And he said, The God of our fathers hath chosen thee, that thou shouldest know his will, and see that Just One, and shouldest hear the voice of his mouth. 15 For thou shalt be his witness unto all men of what thou hast seen and heard. 16 And now why tarriest thou? arise, and be baptized, and wash away thy sins, calling on the name of the Lord.
17 And it came to pass, that, when I was come again to Jerusalem, even while I prayed in the temple, I was in a trance;
After this Roman Catholic sacrament of water baptism to “wash away his sins”, “Paul” says, “I was in a trance”. That’s language Luciferians use to describe being bewitched and beguiled by satan: under the spell of witchcraft of the devil.Tweet
