significance of baptism in Y'Shua

Is it really important to be baptized when coming to faith in Y’Shua as your Messiah? Y’Shua told His disciples to go and baptize people. The apostles kept up the tradition of baptizing new believers once they had acknowledged their faith in Y’Shua. The church as changed this doctrine over time to now also include infant baptism. Is this correct? As part of our continuing study on the spiritual dimension we will also look at the spiritual impact that baptism has in the life of a believer in Y’Shua.

The acts of Y'Shua had an impact on the whole world

Now that we have a good understanding of the basics of the spiritual world, it is interesting to relook at the ministry of Y’shua with a focus on the spiritual dimension. If we focus on this we start to see a number of passages, that now either add a new understanding or raise a whole bunch of new questions. These previously unexplainable passages, now make us take note. Let us focus on the ministry of Y’Shua and identify some behind the scenes things that were going on in the spiritual realm. It may just clarify some of those wierd passages in Scripture for you.

What did Nicodemus really hear?

In the Gospel of John we have a recording of a conversation that took place between Y’Shua and a Jewish teacher named Nicodemus. This is a very profound discussion that can only be appreciated by understanding the context of the questions and answers. In order to understand any message clearly we also need to understand the sender and the receiver of the message. To appreciate the answers that Y’Shua gives Nicodemus, we must think like Nicodemus would have thought. With this study we will show you the longevity of this message by analyzing the perceptions of the sender and receiver of the message. You will come to see that the answer given to Nicodemus reveals the Messiah to us and also tells us how to ensure that we will see the Kingdom of YHVH.

Mikvah – Part 2 – How to

Written by Schalk_and_Elsa. Posted in Training in righteousness

When we study the Scriptures, we usually conclude that going into a mikvah is predominantly for reasons of ritual purity. However, when we search more, we learn that sin causes spiritual uncleanness. For this reason, we are to immerse ourselves when we come to faith. This immersion is symbolic of our cleansing and being a new creature in Y’shua. This act of immersing ourselves in faith brings us closer to YHVH. Just understand that immersion is not what removes our sin or uncleanness. We have learned in the previous article Who the source of living water is, He cleanses us, not our act of immersion.

So, if we want to immerse ourselves, how are we to do this?
