Baptism

Baptism


God lead me to Him and the truth of His word, the Holy Bible, by showing me the
widespread satanic corruption around the world, through the occult symbols that are
used worldwide in media, logos and even on our dollar bills. He also showed me that
all the churches are infiltrated with Satan's false apostles and ministers.
I baptized myself in my bathtub in the name of Jesus Christ and have been following
the Lord ever since (keeping His commandments).

Baptism is "the rite representing the cleansing of the life from heathen pollutions and devotion
to the service of the true God" (Ellicott commentary on John 3:5).
When you are baptized you are now affiliating yourself with Jesus Christ and His sacrifice on the cross for your sins
and with the body of Christ, with all other true Christians.

1 Peter 1:23 KJB
"Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever."

Being born again: it is a regeneration from our corrupt self-seeking nature
to one that lives in strict obedience unto the will of God. A transformation of yourself by God into
a new moral life is what being born again means. It is as if you are born again in that you do a
complete 180 and live a completely new life, from doing your own will to that of God's.

old life = what you want to do (your will)
new life = what God wants you to do (His will)

Ephesians 4:22-24
"22 That ye put off concerning the former conversation the old man, which is corrupt according to the deceitful lusts;
23 And be renewed in the spirit of your mind;
24 And that ye put on the new man, which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness."

Baptism is not some magical moment where God's spirit descends upon you, you begin to hear His literal voice and
and speak with tongues (which I don't believe God gives this gift anymore)

Acts 5:32
"And we are his witnesses of these things; and so is also the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to them that obey him."
