Baptism with Repentance

Matt. 3:7-12 But when he saw many of the Pharisees and Sadducees coming for baptism, he said to them, You brood of vipers, who warned you to flee from the wrath to come?  Therefore bear fruit in keeping with repentance; and do not suppose that you can say to yourselves, We have Abraham for our father'; for I say to you that from these stones Elohim is able to raise up children to Abraham.  The axe is already laid at the root of the trees; therefore every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire.  As for me, I baptize you with water for repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, and I am not fit to remove His sandals; He shall baptize you with Ruach haKodesh and fire.  His winnowing fork is in His hand, and He shall thoroughly clear His threshing floor; and He shall gather His wheat into the barn, but He shall burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.

Acts 26:16-18 But get up and stand on your feet; for this purpose I have appeared to you, to appoint you a minister and a witness not only to the things which you have seen, but also to the things in which I will appear to you; rescuing you from the Jewish people and from the Gentiles, to whom I am sending you, to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the dominion of Satan to Elohim, that they may receive forgiveness of sins and an inheritance among those who have been sanctified by faith in Me.

Col. 1:13-14 For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,  in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

Many come to the baptism in the water with a little or no repentance, for they are without receipt of the Holy Spirit.  In order to be transferred to His Kingdom of purity, the repentance is to remove all the works of darkness (lawlessness).  To receive the Spirit of holiness is sanctified in the repentant heart that is freed from all the works of guiltiness.

1 Cor. 15:29 Otherwise, what shall those do who are baptized for the dead?  If the dead are not raised at all, why then are they baptized for them?

1 Cor. 3:10-15 According to the grace of Elohim which was given to me, like a wise master builder I laid a foundation, and another is building on it. But each man must be careful how he builds on it.  For no man can lay a foundation other than the one which is laid, which is  Yahushua haMashiyach.  Now if any man builds on the foundation with gold, silver, precious stones, wood, hay, straw, each man's work will become evident; for the day will show it because it is to be revealed with fire, and the fire itself will test the quality of each man's work.  If any man's work which he has built on it remains, he will receive a reward.  If any man's work is burned up, he will suffer loss; but he himself will be saved, yet so as through fire.

Some do the practices of the baptism for the dead people who were without their heart change, for they were of the kingdom of death.  Every personal responsibility of his or her deeds performed is examined for his or her work revealed with the pure fire for the quality of his or her spiritual values to measure.
