Dipping in Yeshua’s name or Christian baptism

To be dipped in Yeshua’s name is to be dipped by another. It is a dipping for the dead: the unbeliever. It is the answer of a good conscience toward God, by the resurrection of Yeshua ha Nashiach. It is to be dipped in Yeshua’s name in water.

It is not a man dipping himself. It is not dipping in another name other than Yeshua. It is not done for a man’s self. It is done for the unbeliever. It is done for God. It is a selfless act of grace.

There is not infant dipping. There is not poured or sprinkled.

It is not the will of the parents that will a child to be a child of grace. It is the will and grace of God alone. If the apostolos writes, “For the unbelieving husband is sanctified by the wife, and the unbelieving wife is sanctified by the husband, else are your children unclean, but now are they holy.” How much more so if the husband and the wife believe are the chidlren set apart, and yet it is not the will of the parents that bring down grace on a child. The children are set apart, whether they have understanding or not.  And yet if they continue on in the Lord, they will be dipped in the name of Yeshua at the appropriate time to partake in the common experience of all the children of grace.
