Mikvah – Part 1 – Spiritual cleansing
You probably have heard someone say they have gone into a mikvah, or that they have immersed themselves in water for some spiritual purpose. We have done it a couple of times ourselves, without really knowing the significance of it. We immersed ourselves when we became believers, then again, when we became Torah observant and again three years ago when we went to Israel. We felt a need to be immersed in the Jordan river, not knowing that it would be quite significant for us. We shall share more about this later. So what is the significance of going into a mikvah, if anything? What does Scripture teach us?
