Last night I had a very restless sleep. An urgency in my spirit would not allow full rest. It seems that Jesus our Savior is indeed on His way to earth to catch away those waiting and watching for Him.

Being born again is great but there must be a following into baptism by immersion signifying the Lord's death and burial and coming up out of the water as in His resurrection.

How many, many born again of the spirit ones have not went forward to be dunked in obedience to Christ? If it were not important surely Jesus would not have required it of us. Where do we get off making the rules?

The message I received in that night was to tell others to take action and be baptized as I had already done many years ago as a teen.

In Matthew's gospel chapter 28 our Lord Jesus gave plain instructions.

19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost:

20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

Where can we be baptized? Any pool of water or tank or muddy river is fine. I myself was guided under the water in a little lake in my hometown as were my four children twenty years later. When can we be baptized? As soon as possible is the best time and apparently sooner than soon now.(urgent command)

Who can do the baptisms? Those who have themselves been baptized and who are wise in winning souls to Jesus the Christ.Who can be baptized in water by immersion? Anyone who believes that Jesus is the Christ the Son of the living God is called to be baptized as is illustrated by Philip and the treasurer of Queen Candace in

Acts 8

So I urgently cry out to everyone to get ready for the coming of Jesus by obeying His will, way and plan for His church. Be baptized in the name (presence) of the Father God, Son Jesus, and His Holy Spirit. Some of our young troops have dug holes in the sand,lined them with a tarp and filled them with water to enable the chaplain to immerse them into Jesus' baptism. God bless our heroes.
