The scripture doesn't say they were "immersed in water".luchnia wrote: ↑Fri Jan 11, 2019 9:25 amSo let me get this straight. The eight souls saved by water were somehow immersed in water and not saved FROM the water? I thought scripture showed them taken into the Ark and God protecting them FROM the water? I must have misunderstood how God saved them. He must have immersed them IN the water before saving them FROM the water.
It says..."...while the ark was a preparing, wherein few, that is, eight souls were saved by water.
The like figure whereunto even baptism doth also now save us ... by the resurrection of Jesus Christ:'
Thanks be to God for the mechanisms that allow the washing away of our past sins and simultaneously killing the old man, burying him, and allowing us to be raised with Christ to walk in newness of life.
Thanks be to God for making it so we can be "in Christ", so His blood can be applied to us for our sanctification and justification.
