Let's go to a Baptism service now in progress. Most of this was said at Ireael’s Baptism at a river with a dam so it took place at a man-made lake (MUCH WATER).

We are happy and glad to see so many friends and believers gather on this Sabbath Day to witness the baptism of Ireael and share in the spiritual heritage Christ has left us in both telling us to go into all the world teaching all people and to baptize them. Matt.28:19

While we view baptism as a symbol and not the regeneration power, healing power, or spiritual power that a person would ascribe which holds to the doctrine of baptismal regeneration; which would say without baptism one can not be saved.  We must also question the sincerity of a heart that has claimed to follow Christ for many years reading their Bible and has discounted the believer’s responsibility to follow HIS Master in the baptismal waters.

Since HE that was sinless and Holy from birth said, “it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness” Matt.3:15 Christ was speaking of being baptized by John the Baptist.  This should give us an indication of the importance of Baptism as to our personal obedience in following Christ if nothing else.

The Scriptures clearly tell us “obedience is better than sacrifice” 1 Samuel 15:22 “and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.” 1 Samuel 15:23a  Therefore even though a person views baptism in a symbolic way it is no less an important thing to obey God rather than men when the Holy Spirit shows us HIS TRUTH in following the saviour to which if we rebel, we might be lost.  Please note it is the rebellion to the leading of the Holy Spirit that causes judgment to fall not the lack of water.

Take for instants the story of Naaman in 2 Kings chapter 5.  Was it the power in the water of Jordan that healed Naaman?  Was it the complete washing verse 14 dipped himself seven times in Jordan.  Is the magic in the number seven?  That is the number of perfection or completion used many places in the Bible, even the number of salvation.  Would it had worked if Naaman would have been afraid to “dip” go completely under the water?  What if Naaman would have believed in sprinkling for Baptism instead of  (dipping)?   And accordingly altered what the prophet said?   What if Naaman would have believed in pouring for Baptism?  Instead of full immersion (dipping)?  Naaman did want to use a different river with cleaner water, it appears that he must have despised the source (DIPPING in Jordan) connected with the command.   The point comes down to OBEDIENCE – not sacrifice.  Which includes being willing to be humble enough to do it the Bible way. 

Think with me a moment.  What would cause you the most humility?  Getting a couple of drops of water on your new suit?  Perhaps a small pitch of water POURED on your head would humble you a little more?  Perhaps you would have to change your clothes?  Now, if you had to go to another person and trust them to put you completely under the water (the picture of being buried with Christ).  In fact, if you’re a child and afraid of water and less powerful than the person putting you under the water you may wonder what would happen if they didn’t bring you back up?  You would be dead with Christ, Buried with HIM, but the person does bring you back up in the picture of Christ’s RESURRECTION.  We are to reckon ourselves, dead in Christ Col.2:20. Col.3:3 “For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God.”  Would you expect to “hid” your life under a few drops, or a pitch of poured water, or is the correct symbol to go out of sight under the water as the picture of being baptized into HIS death?

Romans 6:3 “Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into YaHWeshua Messiah were baptized into HIS death?”  verse 4  “Therefore we are BURIED WITH HIM BY BAPTISM INTO DEATH: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.”

Baptism is the picture of being dead and buried.  How foolish to use sprinkling or pouring as a substitute for the clear symbol of being buried at sea (in water).  The clear definition of the original Greek word, “baptizo” is to be whelmed, fully wet, immersed.  This word was TRANSLITERATED so as not to offend the 1,300 year old Roman Catholic tradition of sprinkling, which pertained to blood sacrifices in the O.T.  Pouring is NEVER related to being WATER baptized in the New Testament, neither is sprinkling or baptizing infants.  Only repentant, believing, confessing adult believers were considered eligible for baptism.

The New Testament is clear that the emphasis has changed from a sacrifice to being, BORN AGAIN.  Being made NEW in Christ. What baby being born does not immerge being ALL WET from the waters within his birth place?  NONE.  All live birth babies have been living within their mother’s wombs in the umbilical fluid, called "the Water."  THE WATER either breaks just prior to birth or at birth allowing the baby to immerse from the place in which it had been immersed in this water for nine months.  Christ was baptized by John the Baptist symbolizing for us the need to be “Born Again”. Both John the Baptist and Christ's Disciples Baptized people making a big stir among the Pharisees and Sadducees.  The symbol here being "BORN AGAIN" to a new way of living, leaving the filth of our prior sins, going on to newest of life in Christ.

Some preachers that don’t understand the need for immersion as obedience to the Saviour in Baptism are like Nicodemus, “Art thou a master of Israel, and knowest not these things?”

John 3:3b “Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be BORN AGAIN, he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

Correct water baptism is important.  Your soul may depend upon it.  Not so much as a work or act, but upon your willingness to be in obedience to God’s word, instead of to men's tradition.  Or shall we plead ignorance?  Can we plead ignorance once told or are we responsible for the light shown us?   Will we study this out to show ourselves approved to God?  2 Timothy 2:15

Hosea 4:6 “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”  

We should remember that Christ came into the world, not just  for the United States, but to save sinners from their sin.  The Messiah was born in the country of Israel, the apple of God's eye   Lam 2:18  Zec 2:8 or should I say the people which are the apple of God's eye, the Jewish people.  Christ was born a Jew, or Hebrew according to the flesh.

The Jews gathered for worship and religious services on the Sabbath Day, the 7th day of the week, the fourth commandment of the 10.  Exo. 20:8, 31:15, 35:3 make a fire, Lev. 23:3, Num. 15:32 Gather sticks,  Neh.10:31 buy/sell, 13:15,17,19,22; Isa 58:13 your own pleasure, Jer.17:21,22,24,27 bear burden & work,

The practice and example of Christ was to meet and hold religious services on the Sabbath day.  That is  Sun-down Friday to Sun-down Saturday according to the Roman Calendar.  The Apostles being Jews met on the Sabbath day,  The American weekend of rest is both Saturday and Sunday combining the Jewish Sabbath and the Roman Catholic Sabbath - Sunday.  It is recorded and written by the Roman Catholic Church that the Catholic Church changed the day of rest from the Jewish Sabbath or Sabbath day of the Old Testament to the first [day] of the week; (Sabbaton) in the Greek.    1st day references Acts 20:7 and 1Cor.16:2 Yet we see that even the Gentiles (non-Jews) of the New Testament regarded the Jewish Sabbath and requested Paul to speak to them on the next Sabbath Day   Acts 13:42 & 44  also  Acts 16:13.

Acts 17:2 "And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three SABBATH days reasoned with them out of the scriptures," Acts 18:4  "And he reasoned in the synagogue every SABBATH, and persuaded the Jews and the Greeks."

Even the New Testament agrees Heb.4:4 "For he spake in a certain place of the seventh [day] on this wise, And God did rest the seventh day from all his works."

Now we know better than to judge men according to a day, for it is written in

Col. 2:16  "Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the Sabbath [days]:"

Romans 14:5 "One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day [alike]. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind."

The point is for us to enter God's rest, ceasing from our own works or ways.  To cease living as natural men and women after the flesh and to begin living after the spirit of God attempting to please HIM in what we do and say.

Heb. 4:9 "There remaineth therefore a rest to the people of God. vs 10  For he that is entered into his rest, he also hath ceased from his own works, as God [did] from his.  vs 11  Let us labour therefore to enter into that rest, lest any man fall after the same example of unbelief.  vs12  For the word of God [is] quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and [is] a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart."

The New Testament clearly left the observance of a particular day(s) to us individually, by our own conviction.  The New Testament does NOT leave the interpretation of what mode of baptism we prefer up to us.  The types are clearly given above for BURIAL.  There is no cemetery on earth that buries according to Roman Catholic sprinkling or Mennonite pouring.  The Cemetery does a complete job of burying, immersion into the ground, immersion into the water if buried at sea.  Or encased (immersion) in an above ground mausoleum or tomb as Christ was put in and sealed CLOSED by Immersion Within the element.  

In baptism the element is WATER of which we are to be WHELMED, ENCASED, completely covered, IMMERSED, DIPPED, which is the true meaning of baptism.  Not sprinkled or rained upon by pouring some small measured amount of water from a hand held container which would only completely cover one hand or foot by immersion.  NO ONE is buried in less amount of element than their own body weight.

Let everyone of us endeavor to enter into HIS REST, THIS REST taking HIS yoke upon us which is not any particular day but EVERY DAY of our lives to be lived for HIM. We should be seeking to please the Saviour on the first day, the 2nd,3rd,4th,5th,6th, and the 7th day.  Remembering to enter HIS REST EVERY DAY of the week by living, "THY WILL BE DONE IN THIS EARTHLY TABERNACLE," by which Gal 5:25 "if we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit."

Rom. 8:13 "For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live."  And yet the Apostle said "I die daily"  1Cor 15:31

Baptism is that symbol of death.  In many countries it is not just a symbol but may become a reality for you if you are baptized.  Loss of job, class, family if Jewish, even thought we are in a time of Freedom here in America we must come to the realization that we must be ready to give our life for CHRIST if we are called to do so.

Therefore we have come together this day to witness the figurative:  Death, Burial and Resurrection of Ireael Sabin.  Upon her confession that she is giving the rest of her life to the promised Jewish Messiah and fully believes in HIM as her only Saviour by faith through HIS shed blood on Calvary.

Romans 6:3  "Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into YaHWe-shua Messiah were baptized into HIS death?  vs4  Therefore we are buried with HIM by baptism into death:  that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.  vs5  For if we have been planted together in the likeness of HIS death, we shall be also [in the likeness] of [HIS] resurrection:  vs6 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."

Baptism is the picture that we believe in the Saviour's shed precious blood for the forgiveness of our sins; and that HE gave HIS life, even the death of HIS mortal fleshly body to purchase our salvation.  That pictures, US, being dead and buried in baptism relating to HIS death and burial for us.  Going under the water is the picture of that burial of a dead person, just as the Saviour's body was placed in the earth, in an earthly tomb - encased, hidden, immersed.  

When we come up out of the water this pictures new life in CHRIST, that we should now be living for CHRIST YaHWe-shua through HIS Spirit.  Christ's earthly body did not see corruption as the scriptures tell us Psa. 16:10, 49:9, Acts 2:27, 31, 13:35 because HE rose from the dead.  HE is victorious over DEATH, HELL, and the GRAVE.  If Christ did not raise from the dead then our total religion would be in vain. 1Cor.15:13-14

But because we believe Christ is risen from the dead, we also believe we shall be resurrected to immortality, even eternal life by the power of Christ and this is the picture of a person coming up out of the water during baptism by submersion.

In the Old Testament the priest's would sprinkle blood on people for purification but there is not one Bible verse where a person is sprinkled with water as the act of baptism, this is a custom of the Roman Catholic Church, and many of the reformers were previously priests in the Roman Catholic Church before leaving it.  We still need reformation today because some customs are just the traditions of men and not the commandments of God.  Mark 7:6-9

The Apostle Peter commanded men already baptized in the Holy Spirit to be baptized.  Acts 10:48

There are some Bible versions which do not use the word "baptize" but instead use the word "immersion" which from a descriptive since is a better word because of the true meaning of the word "baptize".

The word "baptized" in Acts 10:48 and everywhere in the New Testament means, to make whelmed (fully wet), to cover wholly with a fluid.  Whelm means submerge, sink, to immerse.  This is the obvious quickest, surest, fool proof way of making a person completely wet.  Why do you think they invented bath tubs before showers?  So baptism is to be by complete immersion in water until submerged.



We can not bury any one in a glass full of water, a pitcher of water or with a water sprinkler or hose no more than a person can be buried in a pitcher of dirt or with a hand full of sand or dust dropped on their head. This is a clear violation of the scriptures and people which saw they had been baptized incorrectly were RE-BAPTIZED in Acts 19:3-5.  Here the issue is the name invoked during the ceremony of immersion.  SO THE NAME IS AS IMPORTANT AS THE MODE OF BAPTISM.    It is also correct to RE-BAPTIZE for correctness of NAME and MODE...  This Biblical example proves so.

This is why John the Baptist baptized the Saviour in the Jordan River not with a silver or gold bowl of water.  To get baptized THEY WHEN DOWN INTO THE WATER.   It wasn’t just  “WITH”  water. Though this proves what element was used in the burial.  And for you that don’t know anything about translation the word “WITH” is not an exact word to hang your hat on either.  So as the sprinklers and pourers yell, "with, with, with," be it known unto you that many of those verses have been all translated as, IN, IN, IN, IN, and the only way you get IN water is with immersion IN TO the water, then you are WITH the water more than others, when you are immersed.  Amen.  

Ignorance and tradition die hard, that’s all the more reason to BURY them IN and WITH water completely, IN baptism (immersion), WITH water (not oil, not liquor, not spirit). The Religious man like the Pharisee will justify himself and will be stubborn towards the truth of the text and symbols. Be like Naaman, immerse IN the water even if it takes you SEVEN times to get the symbol and NAME correct when you are baptized.  

Isn’t it important for us to LOVE the TRUTH and sell it not?  Proverbs 23:23  Or are we just pleasing men or their churches traditions?  That they may glory in our flesh?  Galatians6:13

Matthew 3:16  "And YaHWe-shua, when HE was baptized, went up straightway OUT OF THE WATER: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon HIM:"

Please note you have to be “IN” the water to come “OUT” of the water. I've heard silly arguments that you couldn't immerse in the Jordan.  They either want to make it NOT enough water or that the water is too powerful and strong everywhere therefore you would be drown if you tried to be baptized in the Jordan.  Of course, they have some modern reference of someone that drown trying to get baptized.  What silliness to judge the conditions of the Jordan by some isolated modern account. It only shows both ignorance of rivers in general (turns, bends, and bays, inlets) and more important the Bible where Naaman in scripture obviously makes them liars who fight against baptism being immersion with such worldly minded arguments.

Mark 1:10  "And straightway COMING UP OUT OF THE WATER, he saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon HIM:

Next is an example in a desert.  Why not just use a couple of drops (sprinkles) out of our nice clean canteen?  No need to find a pool, or MUCH WATER (John 3:23) if all the Jews did was sprinkle or pour a little water.

Acts 8:39 "And when they were COME UP OUT OF THE WATER, the Spirit of YaHWeH, caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing.

Based on Ireael's testimony of faith in the saviour: YaHWe-shua Messiah the resurrected Son of God, being YaHWeH in the flesh 1Tim. 3:16 "And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory."

Ireael has evidenced her repentance shown by the fruits of her daily conduct around her parents. We are pleased to accept her youthful request to follow our master in obedience in baptism by complete immersion, in the name of YaHWeH YaHWe-shua Messiah, fulfilling Matthew 28:19 as the Apostles in the book of Acts did also.

As the Saviour said in Matthew 3:15 . . ." for thus it becometh us to fulfill all righteousness."

So what are the requirements for a candidate for baptism? 

Acts 8:36 "And as they went on [their] way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, [here is] water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
vs37 And Philip said,
If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that YaHWe-shua Messiah is the Son of God.
vs 38  And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both INTO the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him."

Please note: in a sprinkling or pouring service the officiator is very careful not to “go down INTO the water” but perhaps his finger and better still to pour and remain completely dry.

Each of us want to be HIS disciple and be baptized according to scripture. Or are we really HIS disciples or just the disciples of some man-made creeds or the tradition of men.  Have we really studied to show ourselves approved to God or are we playing games of favors with men to please men?  You be your own judge now for the judgment day will come when your heart will be made known to all and your eternal abode will depend on your honesty towards God, not men.

“If any [man] come to me, and hate not his father, and mother, and wife, and children, and brethren, and sisters, yea, and his own life also, he cannot be my disciple.”  Luke 14:26

Of course, repentance is the first part of the Gospel and the Ethiopian eunuch returning from a long trip to Jerusalem to worship is the evidence of a repented heart together with the willingness to learn the truth of the scripture - the man found his ignorance of the scripture no excuse not to read it... Acts 8:30-35 Isaiah 53:7-12

Even though we may have repented many times people are plagued by a bad conscience of things they have done in the past.  The Bible has a remedy for this bad conscience. . . the Grace in Baptism.

1 Peter 3:17 “For [it is ] better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. vs18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that HE might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit: vs19  By which also HE went and preached unto the spirits in prison; vs20  Which sometime were disobedient, when once the longsuffering of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water. vs21  The like figure whereunto [even] baptism doth also now save us (not the putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God,) by the resurrection of YaHWe-shua Messiah: vs22 Who is gone into heaven, and is on the right hand of God; angels and authorities and powers being made subject unto HIM.”

Perhaps you are here today and you believe but have never followed the Saviour by submersion into HIS death.  This is the day of Salvation.  None of us have a promise for tomorrow until we believe and have been immersed in the baptismal waters...   Mark 16:16  He that believeth and is baptized (covered “whelmed” in water) shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.

Only those which believe will be saved just the same as only those which believe and are baptized will be saved.  There are many places in the book of Acts where people were immediately baptized. They believed the message and were therefore baptized by immersion into the Saviour’s Hebrew name.  Please note total heart believing is the only requirement, there are NO biblical vows, NO biblical promises, NO biblical contracts which improve baptism as some churches have implemented adding to the word of God there traditions of men.  The sad thing is that these added traditions of men make void the commandments of God by over-shadowing them and making their people TRUST in their traditions instead of what Thus saith YaHWeH in the Word of God.

Water baptism is not joining a local assembly or church.  Thought many people do attend a particular church after being baptized there. But the scripture says:

Acts 2:47b ... And YaHWeH added to the church daily such as should be saved.

1 Cor. 12 :13   For by ONE Spirit are we all baptized into ONE body, whether [we be] Jews or Gentiles, whether [we be] bond or free; and have been all made to drink into ONE Spirit.

The water is NOT the Spirit, but Christ is the one that Baptizes us with the Holy Spirit. This is where I’m afraid many are just getting a sprinkling or poured upon or didn’t get any thing but a religious mind and a will to save ones self by good deeds following the tradition of men instead of the word of God in faith..  The flesh is powerful, but it needs buried, and then filled with the Holy Spirit --- immersed in the Holy Spirit that we might walk as “the sons of God.”

In Cornelius’ house Christ reversed the order one time, here in Acts 10:44 the Holy Ghost fell on all them, but this was not to exclude water baptism Acts 10:47-48  “And he (PETER) commanded them to be baptized in the name of YaHWeH / YaHWe-shua.

I am happy to see many people from different groups here today and I hope and pray each of us are trying to follow the scriptures to the best of our ability forsaking the traditions of men when they contradict the scriptures.  Perhaps your group does not baptize by the same formula as we do, but I do hope we do believe in the same person, that is the same God and that you have been buried in the likeness of HIS death by submersion, otherwise there are believer's here from Church of Christ, Church of the first born, and others who I'm sure upon your profession of faith would gladly walk INTO the baptismal waters with you this same day and administer Believer's Baptism to you just as the Ethiopian uni did in the above text.

We shall have no excuse on judgment day --- man kind is the only creature that goes to hell by choice, and that choice is refusing to believe and be baptized.

Summarizing what Baptism is:    

1-      the symbol of death, burial and resurrection by complete immersion IN water, going INTO the water and coming OUT just as Christ came out of the tomb, after three days and three nights.

2-  this is believer's baptism for all those which fully believe in the  resurrected promised Jewish         MESSIAH according to the scriptures

3-  Baptism gives us a good conscience towards God

4-  We get baptized in obedience to the scripture at the call of the Spirit of God upon our heart ---               the manifestation of our belief in CHRIST, not an obedience to man, not an obedience to a church's rules, not an obedience to a fellowship, but obedience to MESSIAH and the Bible

The apostles were Jews and understood what the Saviour said to them much better than we do 1,900 years later In Matthew 28:19 the resurrected Messiah told his eleven apostles "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:" The Apostles understood the resurrected Messiah said... and this is what they did...

Acts 8:16  baptized in the name of  (the Lord Jesus  KJV English) (YaHWeH YaHWe-shua)

Acts 2:38  Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of (Jesus Christ  KJV English)  (YaHWe-shua Messiah)  for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.

Acts 10:48 & 19:5 and from 1Cor.1:13 we clearly see it is the name of the Saviour, not merely the titles: Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; but the NAME of HIM.

No where in the New Testament is any EXAMPLE of anyone being baptized in the formula of "Father, Son, and Holy Ghost" but instead in that name YaHWeH  YaHWe-shua     or     YaHWe-shua      or      YaHWe-shua  Messiah .

The Gospel is for the whole world, not just for those which speak American English, or those which speak British English, or those which speak Elizabethan Old English, Low/ High German, Pennsylvania Dutch or those which speak the language of the Romans - Latin the holy language of the Roman Catholic Church, or those which speak Greek, or those which speak Hebrew the language of the resurrected Christ.

Acts 26:13 "At midday, O king, I saw in the way a light from heaven, above the brightness of the sun, shining round about me and them which journeyed with me. vs 14  And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying IN THE HEBREW TONGUE, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?  [it is] hard for thee to kick against the pricks.  vs15 And I said, Who art thou (master)?  And he said, I am YaHWe-shua whom thou persecutest.”

The Saviour was not born  in America, Britain, Germany, Italy, Rome, Greece, but the Saviour was born in Israel, a Hebrew, with a Hebrew name.  Not a Greek name, Latin, German, or English name.

  In fact, the English letters  "JESUS" are less than 250 years old, being derived from the Latin Catholic word "Iesu" which is the name inserted into most foreign language bible translations.   Yet this Latin "I" at the beginning of the word is pronounced as the English "Y" ; not the letter "J" which didn't exist prior to the eighteenth century.  The "s" ending was added because of Greek grammar rules though the name came into English primarily from Latin, not Greek.

This Latin name “IESU” was abbreviated to I.H.S. which is clearly seen in the Hebrew transliteration.

Therefore we believe the full Hebrew pronunciation of the Saviour's name would be YaH-We-shua in lieu of Jesus which replaced Joshua  Acts 7:45 & Heb. 4:8 .  Joshua is the anglicized word for the short form of the Hebrew when the middle Hebrew letter is silenced pronounced as YaH-shua.

YaH familiar to you in the word "Hallelu-YAH". YaH  translated once correctly  in Psa. 68:4 as JAH; out of the 48 times YH appears in Hebrew in the Old Testament.

While we do not claim to be perfect or to have this pronunciation perfected, we are doing the best we know how to speak the Saviour's name in Hebrew, which is the name the Apostle's used when baptizing people. The Apostle's did not use modern substitutes, titles, or inventions of men but pronounced the characters of Hebrew which spelled the proper names of God in answer to Proverbs 30:4.  This is our delight and attempt by God's Grace we have studied to show ourselves approved to HIM on this topic as well as others.  Therefore we can do no other thing being convinced by the scriptures, even the Hebrew text, commentaries, dictionaries, and majority of scholars confirming the name of YaHWeH and the Hebrew characters of Joshua the first three letters being exactly the same as the Father's Name YaHWe-H.  Hence YaHWe-shua as seen in Jo-shua.  Please note only the first three capital letters directly correspond the vowels are understood.  Shua is the last two Hebrew letters of the son's name.

In America we are rich, financially.  Anyone who owns a car in most of the world is considered rich, in the majority of the world...  This is the case in Jamaica.  We don't claim to be perfect, just shooting for the mark, I have never sold all and gave it to the poor.

Yet in Matthew 19:21  "YaHWe-shua said unto him, If thou wilt be PERFECT, go [and] sell that thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come [and] follow me."

John 3:18  He that believeth on HIM is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.   Proverb 30:4

Acts 10:43  To HIM give all the prophets witness, that through HIS name whosoever believeth in HIM shall received remission of sins.

Acts 4:12  Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. Do we believe English is that name or do they speak Hebrew in Heaven?  

In Rev. 19:1,3,4,6 they are crying HalleluYaH four times.  That's of Hebrew origin friend, not English or Latin or Greek.

2 Peter 3:15  And account [that] the longsuffering of our  (((YaHWeH))) [is] salvation; even as our beloved brother Paul also according to the wisdom given unto him hath written unto you;  vs16  As also in all [his] epistles, speaking in them of these things; in which are some things hard to be understood, which they that are unlearned and unstable wrest, as [they do] also the other scriptures, unto their own destruction. vs17 Ye therefore, beloved, seeing ye know [these things] before, beware lest ye also, being led away with the error of the wicked, fall from your own stedfastness.  vs18  But grow in grace, and [in] the knowledge of our (((YaHWeH))) and Saviour (((YaHWe-shua  Messiah))). 

To HIM [be] glory both now and for ever.  Amen.

  If any one else needs to be baptized ---   HERE IS MUCH WATER,  what doth hinder you from being baptized???  We need to go all the way with Christ both into HIS NAME and into THE WATER.  Perhaps you’re a little long on majoring the minors of your tradition and a little short on following the MAJORITY of the scriptural TRUTH pertaining to Baptism.  Today can be your day to fully follow CHRIST in scriptural baptism.  If there wasn’t such a real spiritual battle over this truth wanting our simple obedience to it, and our holding out against it, by this we know it is very important – even obedience unto salvation.  Hebrews 5:9 “And being made perfect, HE (Christ) became the author of eternal salvation unto all them THAT OBEY HIM:”     

Let us go down to the water now ....
