I have in this teaching set forth to address any misconceptions that may have arisen as regards the rebirth namely, being born again firstly of Spirit and thereafter Water. This issue is of paramount importance, as it is the very bedrock or foundation of the “New Covenant”, and its abundant rewards (if correctly adhered) promised to those who would diligently follow. Without it comes the stern warning! That it is impossible to see let alone enter the realm of the Father. (In plain words; you will not go to Heaven!!)

John 3: 1 There was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
 2 This man came to *Hoshay’ah*( not Jesus or Yeshua) by night and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You are a teacher come from the Father; for no one can do these signs that You do unless He is with him."
 3 *Hoshay’ah* answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the realm of the Father." (As it is spiritual and cannot be seen thru carnal eyes). 
4 Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?"
 5 *Hoshay’ah* answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the realm of the Father. (This consecutively speaking’ should read first “Spirit” and then “Water”)
6 "That which is born of the flesh is flesh (firstly), and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. (Secondly)
 7 "Do not marvel that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'
 8 "The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear the sound of it, but cannot tell where it comes from and where it goes. So is everyone who is born of the Spirit." (The evidence of the spirit, like the wind, can be felt but cannot be seen by the naked or carnal eye).
9 Nicodemus answered and said to Him, "How can these things be?" (I don’t understand he says?)
10 *Hoshay’ah* answered and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel, and do not know these things?
 11 "Most assuredly, I say to you, we speak what we know and witness what we have seen, and you do not receive our witness.
 12 "If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?

A. Being born of Spirit

Mankind is basically made up of 3 components namely Body, Soul and Spirit:
a.)Body;Can be basically seen as the biological machine or vehicle, which houses our soul and possibly then our new born spirit (in the case only of those who have been born again). This is much like for example the motor cars in which we the occupants drive about in.

b.)Soul Is basically our mind which controls all the bodies:
1) Involuntary functions e.g. heart, liver and all other internal organs.
2)  Voluntary functions e.g. the many complex thought processes that is carried out by our bodies.  The soul is scripturally referred to as the “carnal mind” has a spirituality of its own and is not by nature in tune with the Spirit of theFather “Yaw”.

Rom 8:7. Because the carnal mind is enmity against the Father “Yaw”: for it is not subject to His law, neither indeed can be. 
c.)Spirit: Resides deep within the super or inner conscious mind. This is a completely spiritual domain and cannot be naturally seen. It is with your spirit only that you as mortal being can have communication, that is “communion or fellowship” with the Father “Yaw-Eternal”, who is a Spirit being. 

 a.)John 4: 23 "But the hour is coming, and now is, when the true followers will serve the Father in “spirit” and truth; for the Father is seeking such to revere Him.
24 “The Father “Yaw-Eternal” is Spirit, and those who revere Him must revere in “spirit” and truth." 
b.)1) In the case of the unregenerate person or “carnal man”, he or she is void of any spiritual life in this area, as their spirit has not yet been brought into life. They are in fact two-dimensional only, namely body and soul and for this reason cannot communicate with the Father “Yaw”. 
2) The spirit of the believer however is brought to new life by the hearing of the Word of “Yaw” and thru repentance is resurrected by the power of His Spirit. This process is known as being born again of spirit. (The rebirth in water is later still to follow).                                                                                                                  
To understand this we realize that our primary or first birth, came to being by the consummation, (the act of love) between our natural father and mother, resulting in our birth. Our second birth takes place by the spiritual consummation, (bonding) between ourselves and “the Father”, and as a result, our spirit is born.
Just as also when in the natural, after a mothers water breaks she gives birth, and the newborn cries as a sign of new life. This also being so with the new spiritual life.  Due to remorse and in repentance of sins in the old life, tears are shed, being the sign of the spiritual birth.

2 Hearts foreshown:
Heart of stone (The soul or carnal mind)
Heart of flesh (Spiritual mind)

Ex 32: 19 So it was, as soon as he came near the camp, that he saw the calf and the dancing. So Moses' anger became hot, and he cast the tablets out of his hands and broke them at the foot of the mountain.
Ex34: 1 And *Yawhú* said to Moses, "Cut two tablets of stone like the first ones, and I will (re-) write on these tablets the words that were on the first tablets which you broke.

The first tables of stone engraved by man (Moses), has to be broken due to sin. stony heart or soul of the unregenerate man.  This heart that by nature is incapable of keeping the law of the Almighty first has to be broken. It is only then due to our remorse, that the Father by the finger of His Spirit, can anew write His will (law) upon fleshly tables of our new hearts, meaning the newly born spirit.

Eze 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.

The Apostle Paul now confirms that “The New Covenant” is not written with ink as in the natural, but with the finger of the Spirit of “Yaw” on the fleshly tables of our hearts. (This is metaphorically speaking), our spirit.

2 Cor. 3:2 You are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read by all men;
3: clearly you are an epistle of *Maw-shee’-akh*(meaning the Anointed One), taught by us, written not with ink but by the Spirit of the living Father, not on tablets of stone but on tablets of flesh, that is, of the heart, (the spirit, or the inner man.)
6: who also made us sufficient as teachers of the new covenant, not of the letter but of the Spirit; for the letter kills, but the Spirit gives life.

We at this point, need to realize that the life of our carnal or outer man is in his blood that flows thru his veins and maintains life in our bodies. (Le 17:14 For it is the life of all flesh; the blood).
Even so, the life of our inner man is spirit, which gives life to the inner man.

We need to live in the Spirit, and also walk in the Spirit.
Works of the carnal mind (flesh) is at enmity against the works of the spirit. For this reason we need to live by the Spirit.

Gal 5: 16 I say then: Walk in the Spirit, and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.
 17 For the flesh lusts against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; and these are contrary to one another, so that you do not do the things that you wish.
 18 But if you are led by the Spirit, you are not under the law.
 19 Now the works of the flesh are evident, which are: adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lewdness, (indecent, sexual in an offensive way)
20 idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, (strong disagreement about something, especially within a group of people) heresies,
 21 envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the realm of the Father “Yaw”.
 22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, kindness, goodness, truthfulness,
 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law.
 24 And those who are *Maw-shee’-akh’s*have impaled the flesh with its passions and desires.
 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also walk in the Spirit.
 26 Let us not become conceited, provoking one another, envying one another.

B. Being born of water.

After having been born of the Spirit, the next step in line is the rebirth in water.

*Hoshay'ah* and all His disciples preached rebirth and immersion as the essential prerequisite to redemption. He insisted that immersion was necessary “that all righteousness may be fulfilled”.

Matt3: 13 Then *Hoshay'ah*came from Galilee to John at the Jordan to be immersed by him.
 14 And John tried to prevent Him, saying, "I need to be immersed by You, and are You coming to me?"
 15 But *Hoshay’ah* answered and said to him, "Permit it to be so now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all righteousness." Then he allowed Him. (In other words righteousness with out immersion was impossible to be obtained !! )
 16 When He had been immersed, *Hoshay’ah* came up immediately from the water; and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of the Father (“Rauch Qôdesh”) descending like a dove and alighting upon Him.
 17 And suddenly a voice came from heaven, saying, "This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased." (In this  we see that only at the completion of the act of immersion are we adopted by the Father “Yaw” (“Rauch Qôdesh”) to be His sons and daughters).
As the first of many brothers to come, or as the good shepherd leading His sheep, *Hoshay'ah* by his actions showed precisely what should take place in being born again, and what the immersion process entailed.

Vs 16 “*Hoshay’ah* came up immediately from the water”;
That should leave no doubt to the fact that the immersion applied was literally done in water.

We then read… “and behold, the heavens were opened to Him, and He saw the Spirit of the Father (“Rauch Qôdesh”) descending like a dove and alighting upon Him”:
By this we see thatafter *Hoshay'ah* was immersed in water, He secondly was anointed by the “Spirit” as it descended on Him. 
This should leave no doubt in our minds that where immersion is implied, it is in fact a two fold process… “water and spirit”… We need to take note, that the one is not complete without the other.

Obtaining permission to enter the realm of the Father:
The above process of immersion as demonstrated by *Maw-shee’-akh*, (to fulfill all righteousness) was done specifically as an example or blueprint, for all his future born again children to follow.

*Hoshay'ah’s* words to Nicodemus on this matter were:

John 3:3 *Hoshay’ah* answered and said to him, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born again, he cannot see the “realm” of “The Father”.
5 *Hoshay’ah* answered, "Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the “realm” of “The Father”.

No wonder that people preaching against water immersion have problems!
In the scripture above *Maw-shee’-akh’s* proclaims them to be blind to the realm, as quoted (“he cannot see the “realm” of “The Father”).
They also for this reason have no redemption, as also quoted “he cannot enter the “realm” of “The Father” and therefore will be condemned.
*Maw-shee’-akh’s* comments on this matter were:
Mt 15:14 Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.

After completion of His work on earth, the parting commission of *Maw-shee’-akh* to His disciples was that they were to preach repentance in His Name, and then to immerse those who so responded. This was to seal their acceptance and also their initiation into His family. He promised to accompany them in Spirit with signs following, until the end of this age. As this commission has never been revoked it is still mandatory and applies to us without exception.

Mark 16:16 Vs.  15 And He said to them, "Go into all the world and preach the “Truth” to every creature.
16 "He who believes and is immersed will be delivered; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
19 So then, after *Maw-shee’-akh* had spoken to them, He was received up into heaven, and sat down at the right hand of “The Father”.
20 And they went out and preached everywhere, *Maw-shee’-akh* working with them and confirming the word through the accompanying signs.

Matthew confirms the same parting commission of *Maw-shee’-akh*:

Mt 28: 18 and *Hoshay’ah* came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth”.
19 "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, immersing them….
20 teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age."

The Apostle Paul confirms this commission and emphatically states that there is no other way.

Eph 4: 5 one Master {Lord}, one belief {faith}, one immersion {baptism};

He then goes on to state the following warning:

Acts 20: 29 "For I know this that after my departure savage wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock.
 30 "Also from among yourselves men will rise up, speaking perverse things, to draw away the disciples after themselves.

Gal 1:8 But though we, or an Angel from heaven, preach any other teaching or belief unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

True, the most pitiable people are those who are wrong and do not want to know or admit it. Pride is what the Father hates.
There are  many, in fact you may have even found it among yourselves at times, people, who are:
2Ti 3:7 Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.
Ho 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:

These individuals cause disruptions among trusting believers and even cause some to stray.
They conveniently take what they want out of the Scriptures, to further their own warped agenda and disregard the rest.

Their abstinence to what is written, lead one to believe, that they would quiet comfortably tear the many pages out of the scriptures that refer to water immersion if they could.

“The Devil and his followers hate water!”
This can proverbially be said of these water phobic teachers, who are terrified of the commitment and responsibility that immersion requires.
To these spiritually blind people *Maw-shee’-akh* in the following Scriptures did not have many flattering words to say.

Matt 23: 13 "But woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you shut up the realm of heaven against men; for you neither go in yourselves, nor do you allow those who are entering to go in.
15 "Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! For you travel land and sea to win one proselyte, and when he is won, you make him twice as much a son of hell as yourselves.

It is to these that this advice should apply:

Pr 1:7 The fear of the *Yawhú* is the beginning of knowledge: but fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Pr 9:10 The fear of *Yawhú* is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the righteous is understanding.

C. Spiritual Circumcision

The Angel *Yawhú*, the pre-incarnated *Maw-shee’-akh* in the old covenant dispensation gave the covenant of circumcision to Abraham as a promise. In the cutting away of the filth of the flesh He would now be the righteous covering and protector of Abraham’s seed. By doing this it would separate his children from the heathen who have no part of *Yawhú’s* blessing and promises.

Gen 17: 9 And *Yawhú* said to Abraham: "As for you, you shall keep My covenant, you and your descendants after you throughout their generations.
 10 "This is My covenant which you shall keep, between Me and you and your descendants after you: Every male child among you shall be circumcised;
 11 "and you shall be circumcised in the flesh of your foreskins, and it shall be a sign of the covenant between Me and you.
 12 "He who is eight days old among you shall be circumcised, every male child in your generations, he who is born in your house or bought with money from any foreigner who is not your descendant.

The Apostle Paul now confirms what the type and foreshowing of the covenant of circumcision is. It is in the act of immersion he says, that the old sinful life is cut off and buried. As we are raised up out of the water, we now enter a new life and thru our belief in *Maw-shee’-akh*, we are now covered in Him. It is also in the act of immersion that we partake in and acknowledge the death and resurrection with *Maw-shee’-akh*. That is to say that if we are not immersed in water, we do in fact not, acknowledge nor except the death and resurrection of *Maw-shee’-akh*, and are for this reason are no part of Him.

Col 2:10 and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
11 In Him you were also circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, by putting off the body of the sins of the flesh, by the circumcision of *Maw-shee’-akh*,
12 buried with Him in immersion, in which you also were raised with Him through belief in the working of “The Father”, who raised Him from the dead.

Rom 6:3 Vs What shall we say then? Shall we continue in sin that “His Favour” may abound?
2 Certainly not! How shall we who died to sin live any longer in it?
3 Or do you not know that as many of us as were immersed into *Yawhúshúa* *Maw-shee’-akh* (His resurrection name) were immersed into His death?
4 Therefore we were buried with Him through immersion into death, that just as *Maw-shee’-akh’* was raised from the dead by the power of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life.
5 For if we have been united together in the likeness of His death, certainly we also shall be in the likeness of His resurrection,

The command to be “Washed and be clothed”
The High Priest of old could only come before *Yawhú* to ask for atonement for the people and himself, after he went through the veil. The pre-requisite for entering was at the laver. There he had to take off his old garment, completely wash his body and put on a new and spotlessly clean garment. Then only could he enter through the veil into the most Set-Apart place.

Exod. 30:17-31: And  *Yawhú* spoke unto Moses, saying, Thou shalt also make a laver of brass, and his foot also of brass, to wash withal; (completely)  and thou shalt put it between the tabernacle of the congregation and the altar, for Aaron and his sons shall wash their hands and their feet:  when they go into the tabernacle of the congregation, they shall wash with water, that they die not; and it shall be a statue forever to them, even to him and to his seed throughout their generations.

Aaron .. was the high priest, and at his death, the position of High Priest was passed on to his legitimate son.
In the reformation:  the *Maw-shee’-akh*.. is the High Priest, and at His death at Calvary, the priesthood was transferred to His son, namely the redeemed body of people who bears His Name.

Heb. 2:13: And again, I will put my trust in him.  And again, Behold I and the children which "Father-Yaw" hath given me.  (Isaiah 8:18, Gal. 3:29)
Rev. 1:6: And hath made us .. kings and priests unto the "Father-Yaw"........
Rev. 5:9-10: for Thou wast slain, and hast redeemed us to The Father by thy blood out of every kindred, and tongue and people, and nation, and hast made us unto our Father kings and priests:  and we shall reign on the earth.

The reason was symbolically foreshown:
Their hands and their feet, (and whole body) were dirty form touching the dead and dirty things of this world.  They had to be clean before putting on the high priest garment.
Peter speaks of this symbolism:

1 Pet 3: 21 There is also an antitype which now delivers us—immersion {baptism} (not the removal of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward the Father), through the resurrection of Yawhushúa *Maw-shee’-akh*,

If Aaron and his sons dared go into the presence of *Yawhú* without washing, they would have died as he had stipulated.  But, in the time of reformation, the same applied only now immersion {baptism} in water of the whole body was the washing foreshown.
Acts 22:16: And now ... why tarriest thou?  Arise, and be immersed {baptised}, and wash away thy sins, calling upon the name of *Maw-shee’-akh*......

As Peter had said, not the washing away of the filth of the flesh, but now revealed, as the washing away of the filth of sin.
Note ... Paul had to first wash away the filth of his sin by immersion, before he could serve others and the same applies to us.

Acts 22: 12 "Then a certain Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good witness with all the Jews who dwelt there,
 13 "came to me; and he stood and said to me, 'Brother Saul, receive your sight.' And at  that same hour I looked up at him.
16 'And now why are you waiting? Arise and be immersed, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of

This is also what Peter confirmed:
Acts 2:38: Repent, and be immersed {baptised} .. every one of you .. for the remission of your sins, in the (resurrection Name) name of " *Yawhúshúa* *Maw-shee’-akh*.

He confirmed by the Spirit, that immersion was for the putting away, or cleansing them from their sins.
The next step was for Aaron and his sons, to put on the Set-Apart garment.

Rom. 13:14: But put ye on .. *Yawhúshúa* *Maw-shee’-akh*, and make no provision for the flesh.( Your old life of sin)

How do you put on this garment?

Gal. 3:27: For as many of you as have been immersed into *Maw-shee’-akh*.. have put on *Maw-shee’-akh*.

This Spiritual garment (covering), is received at immersion when the body is first cleansed by water, and then newly covered Spiritually in Messiah as he/she rises from the water. We are then spiritually adopted into the body of Messiah.

1 Cor. 12:13; For by one Spirit are we immersed into (one body). *Maw-shee’-akh*.

1 John 5:8; There are three witnesses:  the Spirit  .. the water .. the blood.... all three give the same witness.  (Good News 'Bible')
Vs.6; *Yawhúshúa*the *Maw-shee’-akh* who came with the water of His immersion {baptism} and the blood of His death.  He came not only with water, but, with both the water and the bloodAnd The Spirit Himself witnesses that this is true, because The Spirit is truth.

The following are the acts of His disciples and how they fulfilled this mission:

On the day of Pentecost the following transpired

Ac 2: 37  Now when they heard this, they were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the rest of the apostles, "Men and brethren, what shall we do?"
38 Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be immersed in the Name of *Yawhúshúa*   *Maw-shee’-akh* for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of ”The Spirit”.( the anointment)
39 "For the promise is to you and to your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as *Maw-shee’-akh* our “The Father” will call."                                                                           
40 And with many other words he witnessed and exhorted them, saying, "Be delivered from this perverse generation."
41 Then those who gladly received His word were immersed; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them;
42 and they continued steadfastly in the apostles' teachings and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.

Very important!
Some people feel that if they have been anointed by the Spirit that it is enough.
Not so!
The Scripture below shows that in the case where the anointing of the Spirit preceded, immersion was then required to follow.

We also need to know that:,
a) to be born again or born of the Spirit, precedes
b) being anointed, immersed {baptized}, or receiving the gift of the Spirit. 
a. and b. are separate and  not the same thing.
c) The same applies to being Immersed {baptized} in water.
Although these three are sequential to each other, they are in fact different and due to their merit, need to be recognized as such.

To the skeptic; not having a spiritual gift like speaking in tongues yet, does not mean that you are not born again! Spiritual gifts are something to be desired and prayed for. 

Ac 10:44  While Peter was still speaking these words; “The Spirit” fell upon all those who heard the word.
45 And those of the circumcision who believed were astonished, as many as came with Peter, because the gift of “The Spirit” had been poured out on the Gentiles also.
46 For they heard them speak with tongues and magnify “The Father”. Then Peter answered,
47 "Can anyone forbid water, that these should not be immersed who have received “The Spirit” just as we have?"
48 And he commanded them to be immersed in the name of the *Maw-shee’-akh*. Then they asked him to stay a few days.

D. Paul’s Repentance and Immersion

Ac 22:16 Vs. 6 "Now it happened, as I journeyed and came near Damascus at about noon, suddenly a great light from heaven shone around me.
7 "And I fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to me, 'Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?'
8 "So I answered, 'Who are You, “Master”?' And He said to me, 'I am *Yawhúshúa*  of Nazareth, whom you are persecuting.'
9 "And those who were with me indeed saw the light and were afraid, but they did not hear the voice of Him who spoke to me.
10 "So I said, 'What shall I do, “Master”?' And the “Master” said to me, 'Arise and go into Damascus, and there you will be told all things which are appointed for you to do.'
11 "And since I could not see for the brightness of that light, being led by the hand of those who were with me, I came into Damascus.
12 "Then a certain Ananias, a devout man according to the law, having a good witness with all the Jews who dwelt there,
13 "came to me; and he stood and said to me, 'Brother Saul, receive your sight.' And at that same hour I looked up at him.
14 "Then he said, “The Father” of our fathers has chosen you that you should know His will, and see the Just One, and hear the voice of His mouth.
15 'For you will be His witness to all men of what you have seen and heard.
16 'And now why are you waiting? Arise and be immersed, and wash away your sins, calling on the name of *Maw-shee’-akh*.

In the above we see that Ananias proclaims, that it is the Father’s will that Saul should  “Arise and be immersed, and wash away his sins, calling on the name of *Maw-shee’-akh*. This command was not just for Saul, but for every body who the Father should call to repentance and to live a new life in *Yawhúshúa* *Maw-shee’-akh*.

Converts in Samaria
Ac 8:12 Vs. 12 But when they believed Philip as he preached the things concerning the “Rule” of “The Father” and the name of *Yawhúshúa*   *Maw-shee’-akh*, both men and women were immersed.

The Ethiopian Eunuch
Ac 8: 35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and beginning at this Scripture, preached *Yawhúshúa* to him.
36 Now as they went down the road, they came to some water. And the eunuch said, "See, here is water. What hinders me from being immersed?"
37 Then Philip said, "If you believe with all your heart, you may." And he answered and said, "I believe that *Yawhúshúa*   *Maw-shee’-akh* is the Son of “The Father Yaw”."
38 So he commanded the chariot to stand still. And both Philip and the eunuch went down into the water, and he immersed him.
39 Now when they came up out of the water, the Spirit of the “Father” caught Philip away, so that the eunuch saw him no more; and he went on his way rejoicing.
40 But Philip was found at Azotus. And passing through, he preached in all the cities till he came to Caesarea.

Lydia of Thyatira
Ac 16: 15 And then she and her household were immersed

Philippian Jailer and Household
Ac 16: 29 Then he called for a light, ran in, and fell down trembling before Paul and Silas.
30 And he brought them out and said, "Sirs, what must I do to be delivered?"
31 So they said, "Believe on *Yawhúshúa* *Maw-shee’-akh*, and you will be delivered, you and your household."
32 Then they spoke the word of the “Master” to him and to all who were in his house.
33 And he took them the same hour of the night and washed their stripes. And immediately he and all his family were immersed.
34 Now when he had brought them into his house, he set food before them; and he rejoiced, having believed in *Maw-shee’-akh* with his entire household.

In conclusion

Now that we have read the facts. If we are obedient to the word and wish to be apart of heavens promises. The question should not be if we are to be immersed (if we have not done so already) but rather how should we be immersed?

E. Immersion

a.) Immersion is to be performed to adults only, for the repentance and burial of our old sinful life.

Acts 2:38) Then Peter said to them, "Repent, and let every one of you be immersed in the name of Yawhúshúa *Maw-shee’-akh’s* for the remission of sins;(The name Jesus is English, of recent origin and did not exist 2000 years ago) 
b.)It is done by complete immersion in water, during which we ask for the forgiveness of our sins and accept the ransom paid for us, by the blood and death of the human Lamb Hoshay'ah, the Son of “Yaw”.
c.) As he/she rises from the water, the Teacher is to call *Maw-shee’-akh’s* New Resurrection Name (Rev 3:12) "Yaw-hu-shúa" (meaning “Yaw” has delivered ) over the person,
d.) In obedience to this he/she obtains forgiveness of sin, receives “the Name” and is adopted into the family of "Yaw". (Deut 28:10  Num 6:22-27)
N.B. It is only in so doing that one becomes a legitimate heir to the promises given. (Gen 15:18, 17:19 Ps 105:8-15).

In closing …
My prayer for all The Fathers children is that this message has enriched your spirits, and shone a light on the road you travel homewards.
May Yaw-Eternal the Father of love and peace, be with you and guide you in all truth. May His richest blessings be upon all you, who revere and call on His blessed Name, thru His Son Yawhúshúa ourMaw-shee’-akh.
Shalom - Br. Harold.
