    Water baptism. Part 1

    From the very beginning in the bible, water separates or divides from something: Genesis 1: 6, 7.

    When God set apart people for himself, he used water to separate you from something to bring you into something else.

    In the old testament, Moses and the priest had to wash with water to be sanctified for service.

    Want to show how many scriptures(not all) are showing how important baptism is!

    Ezekiel 36: 24 - 27:

    God takes the unclean, sprinkles clean water on them, and they shall be clean. Puts his Spirit in them and calls them his people!

    New Testament:

    John the Baptist baptized with water, also baptized Jesus that the scriptures would be fullfilled:

    Matthew 3: 11, 16.

    John 1: 26 - 33.

    Luke 3: 16, 21.

    Matthew 28:19:

    Teach all nations to baptize in Jesus name.

    Mark 16:16:

    He that believes and is baptized shall be saved.

    Luke 24: 47 - 49:

    Beginning at Jerusalem, repentance and water baptism(remission of sins) preached in Jesus name among all nations.

    John 3: 5 - 7:

    Jesus taught you must be born again of water(baptism) and Spirit.

    John 13:10:

    Jesus washed his disciple's feet with water, calling them clean.

    John 19:34:

    Jesus dead on the cross; soldier pierced his side, out came BLOOD and WATER.

    Note:

    1 John 5: 6, 8:

    Jesus came by WATER and BLOOD.

    There are 3 that bear witness in the earth: Spirit, water, and blood. These 3 agree in one.

    One what? - One new birth.

    Continued next text.

    Acts 2:38:
