Mikvah – Part 2 – How to
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?
Who is Y’shua?
Have you ever wondered who Y’shua really is? In our study of Torah, we can forget who Y’shua is and what He did for us. This happened to me too. I was so busy learning Torah, that I started to wonder where Y’shua fitted in. It was almost as if He got vaguer and vaguer until I realized with a shock what has happened. I realized that I have lost that joy I had in me, I have become hard inside. I asked YHVH to reveal Y’shua again to me, and it started changing. I know now more than ever that we cannot exist without Him Who redeemed us. It was almost as if something died inside me at that time, but it is alive again. That is the reason I want to share this with you, in order for you not to forget and to remain alive in Him.
