Online Salvation

   Posted by: Caleb Motupalli    in Christian Life

Legalism is defined as: Not reading a portion of scripture in the spirit it was intended. So, we don’t want to be legalists for sure.

Online Baptisms

In the wake of the proliferation of cloud or sky communities, an online baptism would look like this: A sinner encounters the Word either through an online interaction/presentation of the Gospel (Good News that Jesus came to die for our sins and rose again). Wants to receive Christ into His heart. He may testify in social media by posting a video clip of himself getting a wash. I know that this is the will of God as i, inadvertently, just now (24th August 2013), picked this worship song to hear:

“My Jesus” song by: Leeland


Here on the bank I stand / In the water is the hope of man / Unclean I fall before You now / Jesus, come wash me inside-out / I’m running to the water now / I’m running to the water now. And I’m lost in Your love and Your mercy Lord, Your beauty is so overwhelming I’m thankful for Your truth. I’m so in love with You. My Jesus. My Jesus. All things are new again / Covered in waters of love I stand / All my chains are broken / All things are new again / Covered in waters of love I stand / All my chains are broken / As I’m washed inside Your ocean / You make all things new / You are so good to me, Lord, yeah / So thankful, Lord, so thankful, Lord / I’m a new creation / You make all things new, oh, Lord / You are my foundation / You are just so beautiful / I’m a new creation / You make all things new, oh, Lord / So in love with You…———-Copyright 2009 Meaux Mercy (BMI) / Meaux Jeaux Music (SESAC)

The Lord confirmed His intention today (17th March 2014) asking me to have a faith that would move even a mountain (such as the Muslim world) and baptized in the ocean. Plus this verse from Matthew15:2a telling me not to follow traditions.

Online Communion

Jesus’ use of shock of eating His flesh and blood in Jn6:41-58 was to filter-out the bad people. Peter says, “Where can we go, You have the Words of eternal life.” Once it became clear that they “leaned not on their own understanding” but trusted Jesus wholly, then Jesus at the last supper decodes what He meant. We live on account of His sacrificial death. So if we are living an eternal life, in effect, the food that we are eating is not ordinary food for living but symbolically His flesh and blood.

He does filters out the bad guys. See Matt13:10-17. What i have stated is to show that it is only symbolic. Trans- or consubstantiation  makes you a cannibal. We don’t want that. Reading Jn6 out of context (without including last supper) makes you think that Jesus wants you to become a cannibal, primarily. But in the context of Jn1:1, 14 and the last supper we are lead to understand that the elements of the Communion are not the end but a means to tell us to take a COURSE of the Word, as daily as food is ingested.

Thus said the Lord to me on Thu Aug 12, 2010: Matthew 22:8-10 NASB.

At the expense of being ridiculed, i believe that the is the Wedding Feast of the Lamb of God as it spans the whole globe–“the ends of the earth” (Matt24:14). Allow me to explain.

Like in Jesus’ days when the disciples wanted Him to bring about a forced overthrow of the then government, today we might want for the rapture to be like a SIGNificant event. But God says, “Christ’s work happens quietly.”

The NIV of the Holy Bible correctly translates John 6:63 as: “The Spirit gives life; the flesh COUNTS for nothing. The words I have spoken to you are spirit and they are life.” You see, the flesh counts for nothing. We could be sitting next to each other in a crowded bus/train/plane/building but our minds/spirits could be miles apart in thinking. Brother Victor Thyagaraj of Jehovah-shammah, Chennai agreed with me in spirit that Communion is only possible in the spirit. The concept of a physical fleshly rapture, is a Hollywood’s take on it. “Now I say this, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable” (1 Cor 15:50 NASB). But consider an eCommunion such as Millions could gather together there and feast on the “Bread of Life.” This symbolic Bread is the Word, which had become flesh and dwelt amongst men (John 1:14 + John 6:48 + 1st John 1:1). Today, that Flesh of Jesus is once again the Word/Holy Spirit indwelling in us–Christians. So in keeping with the command of the Lord in Matthew 22:8-10 above, i invite all to come hither to in spirit, and partake of the global eCommunion!

Once again the Lord gave me the portion from Matthew 22. Then i asked the Lord, “Am i the one not going to the wedding feast (the Table) which has been organized at Jehovah-shammah, Vepery, Chennai, India? Or is the Wedding Feast at — the invitation being given by me through Facebook and Twitter to all the people?” THUS SAID THE LORD THROUGH Matthew 16:5-12 GIVING ME A BREAKTHROUGH: “Just because you are not distributing physical bread at it does not become disqualified to be the Wedding Feast nor does Jehovah-shammah become qualified as the place where the Wedding Feast is held just because they are giving out physical bread.” Moreover i have to be aware of the teachings of the neo-Pharisees and the neo-Sadducees who also do not know the info-highway.
