“🙃🙏🏽🙌🏽 I was joking before I got dipped and I said if a bird lands out here like the dove on Jesus, 🦢 bruh….I’m gonna have a heart attack. Just take me to heaven cause God is speakin too loud! Well look at the pics. 🤯. I love the Jordan because of all the symbolism it holds. It was the border of the promised land. It was the picture of safety and security” He Added

“💦🌊 Here’s an interesting fact. Baptism didn’t start with John the Baptist. The Jewish ritual immersion in water is called a mikvah, which is a Hebrew word meaning gathering of waters. Immersion in a mikvah also represents death and resurrection. When you come back out of the water, you come back to life as a new creation. When I was immersed into Christ ✝️(not just water) I also become a new creation: “Therefore, if anyone is in Messiah, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” The more you learn the Jewish roots the more truth comes alive”

The Grammy-Award winning rapper also highlighted that his trip to Israel made him take a deep look at what God meant when He said, “love your neighbor as yourself.”

“Who is your neighbor? Jew, Christian, Muslim, Israeli, Palestinian? It’s a lot to process, I don’t have the tangible answer to end this conflict, but I know it starts with love, empathy, and communication”Lecrae
