Isn't there Just one Baptism that we are all baptized into?
Correct and there is no question that what is taught is the one and only baptism of the Holy Spirit unto eternal life.

Seven unities in Eph 4:4-6

4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.

For the cause of Christ

The ceremonial baptism is a shadow performed by John that introduces a new priest into the ministry. It was applied by the last Levi John under the old order. John was used to present to the world new promise after Melchedik. the eternal High Priest

Its the subject of the conversation in John 3:25 as in .. . What's a person coming from the tribe of Judah doing performing priestly duties of getting the gospel out into the world ?He send us out two by two.

One baptism of the one Holy Spirit. One faith as a work or labor that worked between the Father and the Son. One gift of salvation, the peace of God that surpasses our human reasoning. A reasoning by faith called believing the will of another.

Ephesians 4:5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,

Indeed and all that occur from Jesus's Baptism by John, to His final baptism at His hour, make up the one Baptism into the death and resurrection of Our Lord.

Interesting

Experience is not the validator of spiritual truth .the letter of the law , scripture as it is written alone is.

Who was the Son of man the prophet, apostle Jesus seeking when the father gave him words to rebuke the spirit of error The spirit of wonderment (no faith) ?

The father re-established his law as it is written again and again. Three times struck him out, sent him to the bottomless dugout .He did not even see it coming .(supernatural fast, sinking, rising curve ball )

The word it represents the unseen source of Christian faith . And further more God is no longer brining new revelation.

So who did you receive it from? Its not to late to run from it.

Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. Mathew 4:7
But now I had an experience which causes me to believe and live a Holy Life. How could Paul doubt after his conversion experience?

The spirit has always existed and in the old testament he was an anointing and nothing has changed from that, the only difference is that now anyone can receive him and not just priest, levites and prophets.

Yes king, rulers. prophets, and priests. it is amazing to me so many do not see the Work of the " Spirit of the Lord" in the Old Testament coming upon those in thew NEW the same way.

It is possible they do not grasp the meaning when we are taught our Maker is the same yesterday, today and forever. He does not change.
