This step seals your decision to follow Jesus and make Heaven your Home.
You have now chosen a new life in Christ and are on the right road to Heaven. You are already a Citizen of the Kingdom of God.
Now you have to follow your new found Friend’s example – the perfect example of our faith. Follow Jesus through the Baptism of Water. The Baptism of water manifests and proofs your faith to your family, friends and even enemies, that you have selected a new life with the Trinity. It’s a proof of your old life that died of buried in a grave of water, and risen like Christ as a new creation.
Washed in the new covenant, washed clean and now finally rinsed to perfection. Take this step as final proof of your new found faith. Invite friends and family members to this happy funeral day and happy resurrection day.
You have risen as a new person ready to move to the next step.
Baptism signifies repentance.
Mat 3:11 I indeed baptize you with water to repentance. But He who comes after me is mightier than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He shall baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire;
All followers of Jesus should be baptized.
Mat 28:19 therefore go and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus was baptized in water.
Mark 1:9 and it happened in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
Baptism is closely liked to a changed life.
Act 2:38 Then Peter said to them, Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ to remission of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
All new Christians should be baptized.
Act 8:12 But when they believed Philip preaching the gospel, the things concerning the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, they were baptized, both men and women.
13 Then Simon himself believed also, and being baptized, he continued with Philip. And seeing miracles and mighty works happening, he was amazed.
14 And the apostles in Jerusalem hearing that Samaria had received the
Word of God, they sent Peter and John to them;
15 who when they had come down, prayed for them that they might
receive the Holy Spirit.
16 For as yet He had not fallen on any of them, they were baptized only in the name of the Lord Jesus.
17 Then they laid their hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.
Baptism initiates us in Christ.
Rom 6:3 Do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into His death?
4 Therefore we were buried with Him by baptism into death, so that as Christ 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 joined together in the likeness of His death, we shall also be in the likeness of His resurrection;
6 knowing this, that our old man is crucified with Him in order that the body of sin might be destroyed, that from now on we should not serve sin.
7 For he who died has been justified from sin.
8 but if we died with Christ, we believe that we shall also live with Him,
Salvation is identified with Baptism.
1 Peter 3:21 which figure now also saves us, baptism; not a putting away of the filth of the flesh, but the answer of a good conscience toward God, by the resurrection of Jesus Christ;
After this step, you are now a “New Born Christian”. But not 100% out of the woods yet!
You are now a new person with a new blank page in your life, and everybody will see the change in you. Yes, not all is moonlight and roses.
You have to realize you will loose friends and even family will start reacting badly towards you.
Especially those friends who are still in the World with sin in their lives, but you can make new friends in the same group as you, who are washed clean from sin, born again and on their way to Heaven. At this point a large percentage of Christians normally stagnate and even fall back, due to the attacks from the wolves. Now you need more assistance from Jesus, God and your new Christian friends, to pray for you and with you to reach the safe grounds of the Holy Spirit Baptism.
The problem is when you fall back to a sinful life in the World again; it is very difficult to come back to this point of your spiritual life. Only a hand full return back to step 7 most will be lost, sorry to say. Satan knows this better than you, and he will try his upmost best to keep you away from Heaven.
Remember, if you do fall back, Jesus will leave the 99 sheep and come and look for you, He is the Good Sheppard.
This is my personal opinion.
I believe this is where the modern Church falters, at this point they leave the New Born to fend for themselves, and at this point a pack of wolves are waiting for you, you need protection, guidance and a leader to walk with you the rest of the way, up to step 10 at least.
Please ask the altar worker, the Pastor or Evangelist to walk with you the rest of the way, Yes Jesus is with you in Spirit, but you need somebody with guidance (Living in this time frame) to help you throw the dangers of this World.
