But when you cross over the Jordan and dwell in the land which the Lord your God is giving you to inherit, and He gives you rest from all your enemies round about, so that you dwell in safety, then there will be the place where the Lord your God chooses to make His name abide. There you shall bring all that I command you: your burnt offerings, your sacrifices, your tithes, the heave offerings of your hand, and all your choice offerings which you vow to the Lord.
-In Hebrew religion is written as re-lij-un which means faith, belief, devotion, denomination.
-This was after God gave the Israelites the ten commandments. Crossing the river Jordan a shadow of baptism and a form of cleansing where they would offer sacrifices & tithes & keep the statutes. This was God’s original intension for religion.
-In Mat 3:13-16, Jesus started Christianity by being baptised in the river Jordan by John the Baptist.
Jesus Christ, baptise me with Your water & blood. Santify me Holy so that I may be a beloved son of God as I wait to inherit Your kingdom. Give me power to abide by Your law & to offer tithe & offerings as You please. Protect me from all the evil snares now & forever. Amen
