II Peter 3:18 – But grow in favor, and in the knowledge of our Savior Yahshua Messiah. To Him be glory both now and forever. Amen.
Romans 12:1-2 – I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of Elohim, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, acceptable unto EL, which is your reasonable service.
2 And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of Elohim.
Ephesians 2:10 – For we are his workmanship, created in Messiah Yahshua unto good works, which Elohim hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
Mathew 25:34-40 – Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:
35 For I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:
36 Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
37 Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, when saw we thee a hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
38 When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?
39 Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
40 And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
The new walk is a life of Service, Repentance, and Surrender to YAH’s will in our life’s choices. This is what we are committing ourselves to when we enter into the Immersion Covenant with our Savior Yahshua.
WHAT HAPPENS AT IMMERSION?
After Repentance from Dead Works and having Belief in Yahshua’s blood and sacrifice for the forgiveness of our Sins, and understanding the cost and commitment of the Covenant agreement – and after counseling with a True minister, one should be ready for Immersion.
Immersion is when a person is completely immersed in water.
John 3:23 – And John also was immersing in Aemon near to Salim, because there was much water there: and they came, and were immersed.
Mathew 3:16 – And Yahshua, when he was immersed, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of Elohim descending like a dove, and lighting upon him:
This symbolizes – (see below)
Romans 6:3-6, 11– Know ye not, that so many of us as were immersed into Yahshua Messiah were immersed into his death?
4 Therefore we are buried with him by Immersion into death: that like as Messiah was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection:
6 Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. Vs 11 – Likewise reckon ye also yourselves to be dead indeed unto sin, but alive unto Elohim through Yahshua Messiah.
Colossians 2:12-13 – Buried with him in Immersion, wherein also ye are risen with Him through the belief of the operation of Elohim, who hath raised Him from the dead.
13 And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, hath He quickened together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses;
In other words, our sins and our old man are buried in Immersion and through His death for our sins, we come up out of the water sinless and a new creature in Yahshua.
