Week six – The Baptism
For several years, many years ago, I wondered “Why did Jesus have to be Baptised?” During a church service in Louisianna Abba download the answer to that question that I kept asking. The answer was very simple and you probably already know the answer. This is what He told me. My son was born of a woman. He is both part human and part God. Jesus had to humble himself (the human side) to be baptized. Even in his human side, He had never sinned. But He had to do this to use it for the example to Nicodemus in John.Jesus did not call it BAPTISM but to be born again. There are other scriptures regarding the word born again. They are from 1Peter verses 3 & 23.
Recently Abba gave me another word concerning this born again. He told me when an egg is fertilized in a woman’s womb is just like when a human is born again. There is a new spark of life. This is when life begins! Just like a baby has an umbilical cord attached to the mother, when we are born again we have a silver cord that is attached to us to Him. This scripture in Ecclesiastes 12 describes a person in their old age right before death, verse 6 gives the silver cord.
