 12 Buried with him in baptism, in which also you are risen with him through faith of the operation of God, who has raised him from the dead.3 [Like the resurrection of Lazarus, after you undergo the baptism of death, the Lord calls you by name to "come forth." From the Word of the Lord within: "Christ is actually resurrected in every person that comes to Him and obeys Him repetitively. You have not experienced grace until you have been raised with Him. You are raised to a new life, not just an imitation; He is one with us and ever-present. With persistent and faithful obedience, you too will be raised."]

3 Buried with him in baptism, in which also you are risen with him through faith of the operation of God, who has raised him from the dead. When your selfish nature dies, on the Day of the Lord, when the Lord slays the son of perdition in you with the brightness of his coming, when the Lord crushes the head of Satan under you heel; then you die, and you share in Christ's death, you then share in his burial, and then share in his resurrection in you — to become your true Lord and Master. From George Fox's Journal:

You must have fellowship with Christ in his sufferings. 1 Pet 4:12-13
If you will reign with him, you must suffer with him. 2 Tim 2:12
if you will live with him, you must die with him. 2 Tim 2:11
And if you die with him, you must be buried with him, Rom 6:4
and being buried with him in the true baptism, you also rise with him. Col 2:12,Eph 2:6

There must be "a coming into his death, a suffering with Christ;" and this is of necessity to salvation;
and not temporarily, but continually: there must be a
"dying daily."
