Romans 6:3-4

 3 Do you not know that as many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? [To be baptized into Jesus Christ is the baptism of the Holy Spirit. The baptism of the Holy Spirit, Mat 3:11-12, is a baptism of unquenchable fire at the conclusion of the journey to God, which completely burns up all the remaining sin and evil desires (the chaff) in a purged man's heart (the threshing floor), preserving God's change to life of God in a man's heart, (wheat into the barn), leaving a cleansed, purified individual, then capable of union with God, to share in God's divine nature. This baptism occurs after a man has crucified his selfish, sinful nature on the inward cross of self-denial. This baptism by fire, the baptism of death to the selfish nature of man, is the one baptism needed: one Lord, one faith, one baptism. Eph 4:5.]

 4 Therefore we were buried with him by baptism into death; so as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. [Burial, baptism into death, and newness of life are not to be imagined, assumed, or presumed: Therefore if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 2 Cor 5:17. From the Word of God within: "The new life is as radically different as a man who has lived underground his whole life, suddenly coming above ground to see the sun, the sky, the plants, the animals, the wind, the stars."]

 1 I beseech you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your spiritual service and worship.1 [At the conlusion of the death of our selfish, sinful nature, we are washed on the inside with holy water, we are burned with the Holy Spirit's baptism of fire, the blood of Jesus is sprinkled in our consciences, (the door to our heart), and we offer the incense of prayerful praise, joy, and thanksgiving for being freed from the darkness of this world to enter the kingdom. These are the events that you must see, feel, and experience before your belief has yielded salvation.]
