This gives us a bit more time to Eliade on baptism up, and to brush up, on Rapture, Nibiru and all that is come, including another related prophecy making the rounds; the so-called Solar Event that — FLASH!
If so, what can we do to prepare? I am always intrigued, and a bit suspicious, when fake news like this goes viral, especially in the mainstream mindstream.

This is because Nibiru, as a planet, does not exist. That is, if Mr. In his book, Wars of Gods and Men, Sitchin admits that he made up this story.
The Sumerians never connected the word Nibiru to a planet. They knew it was a star-gate. In the Gilgamesh epic, for another example, we read the line: For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
Simply, if you are interpreting Nibiru as a planet, you run the risk of making a big boo boo and missing the gate to heaven. With all the misunderstandings about this gate it is no wonder that few find it.
So, tell me more about this gate thing again…? These witnesses are called Christians. All Christians believe in the Second Coming of Christ. They will ascend in the air in order to meet Him, meaning they will not be on earth as we know it when, flash, the Rapture happens!
More, this will be secret, for it will be unknown to the world of unbelievers at the time of its happening. This is what is so trippy about the Rapture concept.
It asks us to believe that around a billion people will, suddenly, in a flash, disappear! This will occur in two phases. This power is the Holy Spirit. It powers the cloud.
This cloud of Transfiguration reappears during the Ascension. It may resemble Christian ascension art in which Christ is shown wearing his bright white garment of light, symbolic of his changed body, and riding in what, to modern eyes, appears to be a blue sphere or portal.
After Christ appears in a cloud, we who are still alive and are left will be caught up together with them in the clouds to meet the Lord in the air.
And, believers will be in clouds in new bodies of light… in the air. This means, we will be in the same state of being, the light body, as Christ. This transformation is symbolized by the wearing of a Robe of Light.
Sincemy research and publications have centered on the light body transformation or transfiguration as described in the rapture texts.
I illustrate this with Buddhist art of the descent of the Buddha of Infinite Light who rides upon a cloud to take a soul back to the Pure Land. He is surrounded by Boddhisattvas or saints who also ride clouds.
I show this to say that the cloud business is universal. This is because it is a cosmic or extraterrestrial teaching. These texts are emphatic that in order to ride upon the clouds we must change our bodies. When Jesus rose from the dead, His body was changed.
This transfiguration is described in the Book of Enoch, where we read about how the pre-flood sage walked with God. They shall wear the garments of glory. These garments of yours shall become the garments of life from the Lord of the Spirits. This tells us that when the apocalyptic transformation of the Earth occurs, people will be wearing magical garments of power possessing glory, life, and imperishability.
And anoint him with the delightful oil, and put him into the clothes of glory. He anointed me with the delightful oil; and the appearance of that oil is greater than the greatest light, its ointment is like sweet dew, and its fragrance like myrrh; and its shining is like the sun.
Here Enoch is explicitly described as being transformed into an angelic being, a shining one, by means of a change of garments!This page is the work of Jeff Lindsay of Appleton, Wisconsin (now living in Shanghai, China since ).

Essentially, all religions have some sort of Baptism or Ablution, intended to cleanse away some sort of Original Sin. "Baptism represents death and interment, life and resurrection. When we plunge our heads under the water, as in a sepulcher. Romania is a country slightly smaller than the state of Oregon, measuring 91, square miles (, square kilometers).
Located in southeastern Europe, it is bounded by the Ukraine and Slovakia to the north, Bulgaria to the south, Serbia to the southwest, Moldavia and the Black Sea to the east, and Hungary to the west.
Initiation is a rite of passage marking entrance or acceptance into a group or society. It could also be a formal admission to adulthood in a community or one of its formal components.
In an extended sense it can also signify a transformation in which the initiate is 'reborn' into a new role.
