Popular Christian rapper Lecrae and a group of others in Christian Hip Hop music traveled to Israel this week and were baptized in the Jordan River, an experience the emcee called “incredible.”

Lecrae took to Instagram on Thursday with photos and a video of the spiritual event. He revealed that “walking in places God walked, hits different when you see it with your own eyes.”

“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,” Lecrae wrote in the caption.

Lecrae is known as a trailblazer in Christian hip-hop and paved a path for himself into the mainstream market. He has recently added “speaker” to his title and has been sharing messages in churches such as VOUS Church in Miami. Lecrae used some of what he’s been studying to teach his Instagram followers what he has learned about baptism.
