The above diagram is a simple illustration to show you reason for Immersion is to testified Messiah's death burial and resurrection.
A mikveh Chayim mayim tevilah means gathering of waters, also means hope (tikvah) and in the semitic who live in desert see the gathering water there is hope and find rest. Mikveh is the practice of washing all for of uncleaness. Immersion (Baptise in Greek) complete cover with water. Immersion completely into Water is an outward symbol of inward reality. It is simply a public testimony to the fact that a person has trusted Adonai as his Messiah. You also notice that the believer go to pool to immerse himself / herself. This is to show that He understood the scripture, believe in (Yeshua), born again, will to submit and obey the commandment of to be immerse. He is not force or being push into immersion.
Mikveh (a type seen in the Laver) is most require step of obedience for all believers in Yeshua because it is special Instruction given by Yeshua Mattiyahu 28:19 -20 "Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, MIKVAH MAYIM them in *MY () NAME Teaching them to Shomer all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I AM with you always *, even unto the end of Ha Olam Hazeh. Amein. " *The Original reading did not have the later trinitarian additions Take note that Mikveh (immersion) is not a substitution for circumcision in heart and flesh circumcision.
The establishment of relationship with Elohim are base on the following scripture Yochanan 3;5, 7; Galatians 3:26; and 1 Yochanan 3:1
1. Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot * enter into the kingdom of Elohim.
2. We must be born again. Yochanan 3:3-173. We then become the children of Elohim by faith in Messiah Yeshua's Blood Atonement.
4. In relationship we called the sons of Elohim: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not
Romans 2:25 -29 But he is a Yehudi, which is one inwardly *; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of YHwH Elohim.
Circumcision of the heart (type seen in Brazen Alter) most require and evidence of a believer being Saved by faith in accepting the Yeshua's redemptive work.The foreskin of the heart; specifically means, "a barrier to holiness" i.e. lust. This barrier is what Acts 2:38 removes! It is cutting off our old nature (carnal flesh), Romans 8:7 Because the carnal mind is enmity against Elohim: for it is not submissive to the Torah of Elohim, neither indeed can be" and we must be filled with Ruach Hakodesh and walk a consecrated lifestyle in Moshiach.
Circumcision of Flesh requires under below circumstances:
Circumcision in flesh of the foreskin is a special covenant to the Yisraelites; as for Non-Jews males Believers not necessary require unless he desire to be converted it must be done decently and in order of faith because once the token or seal is received that Yisrael is pledged to full and immediate compliance which can become so frustrating, discouraging that new in faith can give up and fall away from However for those, have the testimony of Yeshua; are already circumcised in heart, mikveh mayim,submissive to the Torah of Elohim will only be require circumcision in flesh when they enter into 's Sanctury HaBayit in Yisrael Ezekiel 44:9 9 Millenial kingdom, when they partaking in Pesach (Shemot 12:48,49) Ezekiel 45:21 ), Leviticus 12 and Entry into the Land of Yisrael the promised land. New in faith Believers are required to at least maintain the instruction basic command in Acts 15:20. Circumcision are commandment found in the Torah teaching it is not the basis of Salvation to establish Avrahamic Covenant. Salvation by put your faith in the redemption work of Moshiach Yeshua alone.
Romans 2:2 For circumcision verily profiteth, if thou Shomer the Torah but if thou be a breaker of the Torah, thy circumcision is made uncircumcision.
The understanding of Kosher Mikveh is:
A proper mikvah contains a minimum of 40 SE'AH (about 120 gallons) of undrawn water (cannot be filled by bucket or by metal pipes).
The volume of a Sinful man is:
20 se'ahs -20
After immersion the man has 20 new se'ahs of living water = "born again" 20
If the volume of a Mikvah is
only 20 Se'ahs 20(60 gallons)
the volume of a sinful man is
20 Se'ahs -20
After immersion the an has 0 se'ah no rebirth he is dry 0
Immersion in natural enviroment such river, lake, ponds are by far a best choice
Alternative choice Man-made pool will base on the measure of 40 Se'ahs roughly the water level that
reaches ones Chest or ribs where the lungs is.
The type of Immersion
We also see from the Tenakh perspective of from the incident of the Red Sea Crossing signifies a type of mikveh mayim. The Israelite people were in the bondage in Mitzrayim and chose Moshe to be their deliverer. We can see that to be able to get out of bondage in Mitzrayim Ha Benai Yisrael must first cross the Red Sea. Therefore the word Hebrew means the crossover one. This is the type of Immersion into Moshe in the cloud and in the sea? which means immersion into Adonay HaMashiach for the remission of sin. (1 Cor. 10:1-2; Acts 2:38; 22:16) Immersion into Adonay HaMashiach causes a Messianic Believer to be free from sin. (Rom. 6:1-8)
We can understand the parallel comparison to Moshe delivering Ha benai Yisrael out of physical bondage is sending His Son Messiah into the world to provide a way of salvation for mankind. The Red Sea Crossing signifies a few point that we should take note:
1. Seen as a way of redemption through HaMashiach, the benai Yisrael cross the red sea by faith and obedience. 's delieverance through the crossing of the Red sea means that salvation by the blood of Adonay HaMashiach.
2. Mitzrayim is seen as a type of spiritual bondage of sin
3. Red sea the word red symbolizes blood. "be immersed into Him and be washed in His precious blood." (Heb. 9:22; Rev. 1:5)
When a Messianic believer take the step of Mikveh Mayim tevilah, it means that the person is obedient to the commandment of Adonay as mention in Mark 16:16 He who believes and is immersed will be saved; but he who disbelieves will be condemned. Please take not that believing comes before immersion. It means that you are identified with Messiah in His death, burial and resurrection.
** Please note that we reject the theory of "infant baptism" and "baptism by sprinking" This is because infants or children are too young to express faith for themselves, may not fully understand the biblical concept Immersion (Baptism), since we understand baptism to be an expression of faith, and no one can be saved by their parents' faith.
THE JEWISH WAY OF Immersion
A Look at How Baptism Originated in the Jewish Culture and its Implications for All People Today
By Dr. Galen Peterson
Yochanan the Immerser said :"I indeed immerse you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: He (Yeshua) shall immerse you with the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit), and with fire:" (MatitYahu 3:11)
Sha'ul quote the example in the Tanakh "And were all immersed unto Moshe in the cloud and in the sea;" (1 Cor 10:2)
Mikveh before coming to Service, just as we see Yeshua before entering His ministry immersed Himself and witnessed by Yochanan

Also describe in 1 Yochanan Perek He (chp 5):6-8
