AS A BELIEVER IN YAHUSHUA HA MASHIACH (a.k.a JESUS CHRIST / YESHUA), ARE YOU BAPTISED BY IMMERSION IN WATER?
INFANT BAPTISM and CONFIRMATION are PAGAN CUSTOMS created by Satan to divert YAH’S people from THE TRUTH OF YAH. YAHUSHUA was not baptised as an infant and NEVER CONFIRMED (Matthew 3 &4)! After HIS baptism, YAHUSHUA went into MINISTRY meaning that HE started serving YAH fervently.
HOSEA 4:6 COMPLETE JEWISH BIBLE (CJB)
6 My people are destroyed for want of knowledge.
Because you rejected knowledge,
I will also reject you as cohen for me.
Because you forgot the Torah of your God,
I will also forget your children.
JOHN 8:32 COMPLETE JEWISH BIBLE (CJB)
32 you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Rather, as an infant, YAHUSHUA was dedicated to YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD THE FATHER on the 8th day from his birthday as well as CIRCUMCISED (Luke 2:21-24). After 40 days of birth, YAHUSHUA was dedicated by Simeon and Anna to YAHUVEH / YAHWEH GOD THE FATHER (Luke 2:25-40). Years later, at the age of 30, YAHUSHUA was BAPTISED IMMERSION IN WATER and immediately after that BAPTISED BY THE RUACH HA KODESH who was symbolised as a DOVE from the HEAVENS. It was after that HE was declared as YAH’S SON / CHILD / FOLLOWER (Matthew 3:1-3).
YAHUSHUA went ahead as our example for us to follow all the days of our lives.
JOHN 13:15 NAMES OF GOD BIBLE (NOG)
15 I’ve given you an example that you should follow.
1 PETER 2:21-25 COMPLETE JEWISH BIBLE (CJB)
21 Indeed, this is what you were called to; because the Messiah too suffered, on your behalf, leaving an example so that you should follow in his steps.
22 “He committed no sin,
nor was any deceit found on his lips.”[a]
23 When he was insulted, he didn’t retaliate with insults; when he suffered, he didn’t threaten, but handed them over to him who judges justly. 24 He himself bore our sins[b] in his body on the stake,[c] so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness — by his wounds you were healed.[d] 25 For you used to be like sheep gone astray, but now you have turned to[e] the Shepherd, who watches over you.
HEBREWS 12 COMPLETE JEWISH BIBLE (CJB)
12 So then, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us, too, put aside every impediment — that is, the sin which easily hampers our forward movement — and keep running with endurance in the contest set before us, 2 looking away to the Initiator and Completer of that trusting,[a] Yeshua — who, in exchange for obtaining the joy set before him, endured execution on a stake as a criminal, scorning the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.[b] 3 Yes, think about him who endured such hostility against himself from sinners, so that you won’t grow tired or become despondent. 4 You have not yet resisted to the point of shedding blood in the contest against sin.
HE was VICTORIOUS over satan and his demons and passed that victory on to us that truly belong to HIM.
We are commanded by YAH in Matthew 28 and Mark 16:16 as well as various other scriptures to be BAPTISE that we may be SAVED! We are required to obey YAH’S COMMANDMENTS!
