It reads , for John indeed baptized with water , but you will be baptized with water , but you will be baptized with Holy Spirit not many of these days after .

#1 Here we that water baptism was in force by John .

#2 but that Israel was to be baptized with Holy Spirit power not many days after .

#3 here we see to different kinds of baptism here ,

#4 water baptism

#5 and Holy Spirit is a gift , Acts 2:38

#6 and Acts 2:17-23 is a repeat of Acts 2:36-39

#7 under the gospel of grace there will never be water baptism as what was given to Israel by John 1:31 and we know that the Kingdom of Heaven preaching was never given to Paul .

Yes.
#2 but that Israel was to be baptized with Holy Spirit power not many days after .
Not all of Israel.
#3 here we see to different kinds of baptism here ,
There are many different kinds of baptism in the Bible. Baptism does NOT mean water.
#4 water baptism
One kind of baptism... even practiced in the OT.
#5 and Holy Spirit is a gift , Acts 2:38
Being baptized WITH the Spirit is not the same as being baptized BY the Spirit.
#6 and Acts 2:17-23 is a repeat of Acts 2:36-39
Not sure exactly what you mean.
#7 under the gospel of grace there will never be water baptism as what was given to Israel by John 1:31 and we know that the Kingdom of Heaven preaching was never given to Paul .
Paul never commands water baptism. That's a clue.
Paul was glad that he water baptized so few. That's another clue.
