Christian rapper Lecrae and a group of others in Christian Hip Hop music are currently in Israel this week. Whilst they were "walking in places God walked," Lecrae was baptized in the River Jordan. The river major significance is that Jesus of Nazareth himself was baptized by John the Baptist in it
Lecrae writes: "Today we got baptized in the Jordan River. The one John baptized Jesus in. 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 speaking too loud!" Lecrae posted in a series of photos one of which captured a real dove hovering over the water.
Along with the photos, was a video of the ceremony where a minister is heard telling the Texas rapper he is baptizing him because of Lecrae's confession of Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
"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. Getting baptized in it was an incredible experience for me."
On his trip in Israel, Lecrae also visited the Mount of Beatitudes, where Jesus is believed to have delivered the Sermon on the Mount, and rode a camel through Jericho. Lecare is grateful for his visit to the Holy Land. "Olive oil, millstones, synagogues, walking in places God walked. It hits different when you see it with your own eyes."
