Sunday Evening Ziggurat : Baptize Your Head with Sand: Rev. 17 : 7

One God  One Faith  One Nation  One Texas

I will tell thee the mystery of the woman, and of the beast that carrieth her, which hath the seven heads and ten horns.

I was born in darkness in the Womb in the land of gods, Ishtar, Mary and Guadalupe.
The seven heads the seven horns are the seven churches of Asia I control the wealthiest religion in the World the Roman Empire.

Can You Get Baptized When Physical Needs Prevent Immersion?  
Pastor Roger Barrier’s “Ask Roger” column regularly appears at Preach It, Teach It. Every week at Crosswalk, Dr. Barrier puts nearly 40 years of experience in the pastorate to work answering questions of doctrine or practice for laypeople, or giving advice on church leadership issues.

Dear Roger,

I want to be baptized. But I read that the ancient Greek word for baptize means immersion. What if a person has musculoskeletal health problems that prevent them from being thrown backwards under water? 

I have health issues-a detached retina and three herniated discs in my lumbar spine. There’s no way a preacher could bend me over backwards into water over my head. The whole process seems too prescriptive with no concern for individuals who would like to participate in believer’s baptism but cannot due to their physical needs. 

Also, there are some people who are terrified to be put in water up to their chest and certainly don’t want someone to dunk them under the water for any amount of time. How can individuals like this be accommodated, while still participating in the public declaration of faith?

Sincerely, 

Believer

Dear Believer, 

First of all, I’m so sorry for the pain you are enduring. Life is not supposed to be like this. Nevertheless, it sounds like you handle it well and it’s time to be baptized.

Let me give you little background and then reach a conclusion. You are correct, the Greek word for baptism really does mean immerse, not sprinkling as some believe. Real baptisms pictures the death, burial, and resurrection of Christ. It also pictures the washing away of sin so that we may have a new life in Christ.

It’s important to realize that there are times when immersion is not possible. For example, you and your friend simply can’t be immersed.

A little history might help. The Essenes were a select group of ascetics who lived in caves about 40 miles south of Jerusalem. The three major groups in Jesus time were the Sadducees, the Pharisees, and the Essenes. You may know the Essenes because they are the ones who copied most of the Old Testament texts again and again for safety and security. These copies were discovered in 1947 and are found in the historical archives in Jerusalem.

Since there’s not much water in the desert, the Essenes improvised. The rule was that if there was not enough water for immersion, sprinkling over the head was all right. If there was not enough water for sprinkling, then pouring sand was all right.

The point is: be immersed. But if that not possible, it’s okay to sprinkle.

It is time to baptized, whether in the baptistery tank or not. Have the one baptizing explain carefully exactly what’s happening. You’d like to be immersed, but since you can’t, you’ve chosen to be sprinkled to express the picture of the washing away of sin by the Lord Jesus (or something to that effect). By doing this, your baptism will be pleasing to the Lord and accepted by everyone else.

You will be as fully baptized as those who are immersed. I hope this helps.

Love, Roger

13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.

He has been preaching this crap for forty years and for forty years has sent people to their spiritual death.   This pales in comparison the physical death of abortion.  God never told to you sprinkle your head with sand or the green grass in my yard.  He told you through Christ to immerse yourself in the waters of the Living Word, Christ.  This is what the Word calls having the mark of the beast that came out of the deep.

You follow me into my house I will baptize you in the Living Word, the good news, Christ dwells within you.  If you want to sprinkle sand on your head you do not need a pastor to do it just to show others .  It would show others of common sense how stupid you are

You sprinkle your head with the Word you are as dead as that pastor,  I was not sent to you to save the world only those that hear my words of the one that brought the light.

Sundays Thoughts; “Let the Dead bury the Dead” : Mt. 8: 22

God created Texas, one God one Faith one Baptism

“But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead”.
Rome adopted me and named me your Mom,  virgin Mary and to others virgin Guadalupe


“And I saw the woman drunken with the blood of the saints, and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus: and when I saw her, I wondered with great admiration”.


To whom God would make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles; which is Christ in you, the hope of glory:

But Jesus said unto him, Follow me; and let the dead bury their dead.

“Remember that giving is not a tax or a legal requirement to please God, but a voluntary act of worship. It is a tangible way to express our love to God,” he said in an opinion piece for The Christian Post. “Give, even if you can only afford $1. As you give, ask God to multiply it for His Kingdom.

Show me the Words of God that we give money to build the Temples and altars unto mans gods

King Cyrus in 587 BC gave riches unto the Jewish people when he let them go from exile to build the second Temple unto the belief in one God, one Faith, one Baptism in Jerusalem surrounded by an ocean of gods and goddesses the Roman Empire.  How many temples and altars have men built unto their gods?


“Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up”.

God who created you, Christ in your heart will rebuild you in 3 days, 3 secs.  God never asks for money only men do.  God never ever asked me to give money only what He bestowed upon me the gift of life, Christ dwells within me, so that I can tell others the good news, Christ lives within you, that does not require me to ask for your tithes to build my temple or my ministry.   Solomon built one Temple and the Jews released from exile built the second Temple .  The Roman Empire destroyed the Living Word, Christ that dwells within you, and destroyed mans temple in 70 AD, Jerusalem.

You rebuild your Body your Temple not with money but with the freedom of the Living Word.   Then you love your neighbor and tell him or her the Truth about the mysteries of the Word, the Good News , Christ dwells within YOU. 

I gave you two Mothers, virgin Mary and virgin Guadalupe and you give me your money to build my temples the ” frontlets between my eyes”.  I destroyed the temples and belief of one God one Faith one Baptism the Jewish nation in 325 AD.

 Jesus said unto him,  let the dead bury their dead

 Jesus said unto him, Follow me;
