Water Emersion, Baptism

The Burial Of The Old And Birth To The New

August 7, 2009

This week on Shema Yisrael, topics include the following:

Regarding water baptism, what is acceptable to YAHWEH?

Water baptism or meekveh (hebrew word) is an act of being immersed in water by a man commanded of YAHWEH. Participation in this act should be a part of the walk of every Yisraelite and is done by faith. This ceremonial cleansing of water immersion in the name of YAHSHUA washes away the filth (sin) of the Yisraelite and brings him into new life by the power of the Ruach HaKodesh. Romiyah (Romans) 6:3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into YAHSHUA HaMashiach were baptized into His death? Therefore we were buried with Him through baptism into death, that just as HaMashiach was raised from the dead by the splendor of Abba, even so we should walk in newness of life. By no means is participation in water baptism to be taken lightly. Contrary to the emet (truth) of the Torah, water baptism practiced by various christian denominations is an abomination to YAHWEH. It is a vile ritual that imparts the spirit of that particular denomination and their damnable religious practices. This is an act of sorcery practiced by corrupt men in these religious whorehouses.
