the_o end_n come_v for_o the_o apostle_n themselves_o do_v not_o can_v not_o preach_v the_o gospel_n in_o all_o the_o world_n and_o unto_o all_o nation_n therefore_o they_o be_v to_o ordain_v other_o

to_o show_v that_o there_o be_v great_a virtue_n and_o efficacy_n in_o baptism_n even_o such_o as_o do_v concern_v our_o reunion_n with_o god_n by_o remission_n of_o our_o sin_n and_o sanctification_n of_o our_o soul_n or_o why_o else_o shall_v we_o be_v baptize_v in_o the_o name_n of_o god_n and_o also_o that_o all_o that_o virtue_n and_o efficacy_n do_v whole_o depend_v upon_o god_n alone_o in_o who_o name_n only_o we_o be_v to_o be_v baptize_v and_o this_o efficacy_n of_o baptism_n be_v more_o full_o express_v by_o saint_n mark_n say_v he_o that_o believe_v and_o be_v baptise_a shall_v be_v

baptism_n will_v one_o day_n find_v the_o heathen_n and_o infidel_n of_o syria_n to_o rise_v up_o against_o they_o in_o judgement_n who_o say_v to_o their_o master_n naaman_n my_o father_n if_o the_o

other_o water_n by_o the_o baptism_n of_o his_o well_o belove_a son_n jesus_n christ_n to_o the_o mystical_a wash_n away_o of_o sin_n and_o yet_o moreover_o that_o not_o only_o the_o man_n of_o god_n but_o also_o the_o son_n of_o god_n have_v say_v unto_o they_o wash_v and_o be_v clean_a unless_o they_o will_v divide_v the_o precept_n wash_v from_o the_o promise_n and_o be_v clean_a since_o the_o word_n have_v be_v in_o our_o saviour_n mouth_n which_o the_o infidel_n dare_v not_o do_v when_o they_o be_v only_o in_o elisha_n mouth_n for_o it_o be_v most_o certain_a that_o baptism_n be_v necessary_a to_o salvation_n as_o command_v wash_v and_o it_o be_v most_o probable_a that_o it_o be_v also_o efficacious_a thereunto_o and_o be_v clean_a because_o it_o be_v command_v for_o he_o that_o have_v command_v it_o be_v able_a to_o make_v it_o so_o nay_o rather_o have_v make_v it_o so_o to_o show_v that_o he_o delight_v not_o in_o unnecessary_a or_o unprofitable_a command_n what_o need_v we_o then_o to_o say_v that_o baptism_n be_v necessary_a only_o as_o a_o profession_n of_o our_o faith_n or_o as_o a_o outward_a sign_n or_o testimony_n of_o god_n grace_n whereas_o we_o may_v with_o much_o confidence_n and_o without_o any_o inconveniency_n acknowledge_v it_o to_o be_v moreover_o a_o instrumental_a cause_n whereby_o our_o bless_a saviour_n be_v please_v to_o work_v grace_n and_o salvation_n for_o who_o can_v hinder_v the_o first_o cause_n to_o work_v by_o what_o instrument_n he_o please_v and_o sure_o we_o be_v the_o word_n of_o god_n do_v plain_o ascribe_v unto_o baptism_n the_o operation_n of_o a_o instrumental_a cause_n in_o work_v the_o effect_n of_o grace_n when_o saint_n paul_n call_v it_o the_o wash_n of_o regeneration_n tit._n 3._o 5._o which_o be_v

16._o wherefore_o we_o will_v conclude_v that_o both_o faith_n and_o baptism_n may_v be_v right_o call_v instrumental_a cause_n of_o our_o salvation_n but_o in_o different_a respect_n faith_n as_o instrumental_a on_o our_o part_n whereby_o we_o prepare_v ourselves_o for_o christ_n baptism_n as_o instrumental_a on_o christ_n part_n whereby_o he_o prepare_v we_o for_o himself_o this_o be_v
