Why would Jesus ADD another baptism in Matt 28:19 KNOWING Paul would speak Eph 4:5 one baptism but commanded us not to ADD (Rev 22:18)?

(Revelation 22:18) “I am bearing witness to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this scroll: If anyone makes an addition to these things, God will add to him the plagues that are written in this scroll;"
Regarding “the prophecy” of Revelation, they must not hide it or add to it. Its message must be preached openly, “from the housetops.” (Matthew 10:27) Revelation is inspired of God. Who would dare change a word of what God himself has spoken and transmitted through the one who is now the reigning King, Jesus Christ? Certainly, such a person would deserve to lose out in the quest for life and suffer the plagues that must come upon Babylon the Great and upon the whole world.

You make too much confusion with your sayings, and then, what did you individually specify with the biblical passages? Nothing?
There are 2 baptisms, one in water, the other with the Holy Spirit of God.

Assuming he was omniscient at the time of Mat 28:19
(though you do not)
which "one baptism" Paul would refer to
the one concerning which Jesus himself was providing explicit instructions in Mat 28:19.

Matt 28:19 was talking about water baptism which is a symbol of the covenant with God that a new member of the church makes.
Ephesians is talking about how there is only one gospel, church and doctrine. The church is not divided.
Revelation 22:18 is about the book of Revelation, not about the bible. The bible is a compilation of unrelated records. The book of revelation was written before the bible even existed and was not even the last record to be written. The same is true for all other bible records. Paul was not thinking of us when he wrote his letters to the various branches of the church. Why do people think that God wrote the bible as one cohesive book? If He did, it seems that it would not stir so much contention.

He didn't add anything. You want to take away from the word of god. If water baptism was no longer needed, Jesus would have said so during his lifetime. He did not. He would have made it clear on the day of Pentecost. He did not. He would have said something to some one along those lines. He did not. Water baptism is not the end of anything. To many, it is the start of something great. Stop trying to turn people against god with your rantings. Please.

It's those who say the HS forgot to tell Philip NOT to baptize with water when the man was doing it right in front of him (Ac 8:35-39) who are adding to God's word. According to these same adders to God's word, the HS even allowed the Ethiopian to go his way delusionally rejoicing, not saying a word to him, when in fact, he was going to hell for getting baptized in water. If one of those Bible adders was there, they would have told Philip he was "full of SHYT" and that he was going to hell for lying to people by telling them to get baptized in water. They would have spoken up, even though the HS was apparently too scared to.
