Physical water baptism = false vision 
 

Jeremiah 14:14 "Then the LORD said unto me: The prophets prophesy lies in my name, I sent them not; neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them. They prophesy unto you a false vision, divination, a thing of nought and the deceit of their heart"

False teachers bring a false vision from Acts 8:26-39

acts 8:26-39 "26 And the angel of the Lord spake unto Philip, saying, Arise, and go toward the south unto the way that goeth down from Jerusalem unto Gaza, which is desert.27 And he arose and went: and behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,28 Was returning and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet.29 Then the Spirit said unto Philip, Go near, and join thyself to this chariot.30 And Philip ran thither to, and heard him read the prophet Esaias, and said, Understandest thou what thou readest?31 And he said: How can I, except some man guide me? And he desired Philip that he come up and sit with him.32 The place of the scripture which he read was this: He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth.34 And the eunuch answered Philip and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.36 And as they went on way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him.39 And when they were come up out of the water, the Spirit of the Lord caught away Philip, that the eunuch saw him no more: and he went on his way rejoicing"

I know God will reveal Jesus Christ to His chosen people in Isaiah 53. 

Isaiah 53 "1 Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant and as a root out of a dry ground. He hath no form nor comeliness and when we shall see him, no beauty that we desire him.3 He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows acquainted with grief and we hid faces from him; he was despised and we esteemed him not.4 Surely he hath borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God and afflicted.5 But he wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement of our peace upon him and with his stripes we are healed.6 All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.7 He was oppressed and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth. He is brought as a lamb to the slaughter and as a sheep before her shearers is dumb, so he openeth not his mouth.8 He was taken from prison and from judgment and who shall declare his generation? for he was cut off out of the land of the living; for the transgression of my people was he stricken.9 And he made his grave with the wicked and with the rich in his death; because he had done no violence, neither deceit in his mouth.10 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see seed; he shall prolong days and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand.11 He shall see of the travail of his soul, shall be satisfied. By his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.12 Therefore will I divide him with the great and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death, he was numbered with the transgressors, he bare the sin of many and made intercession for the transgressors"
 
Remember, false prophets brought false visions in the Old Testament; it is the same today: 2 Peter 2:1-3 "1 But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.2 And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of.3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not"

From Acts 8:26-39 false teachers teach physical water baptism because they are blind; therefore cannot see the Lord Jesus Christ is the water. They say that the eunuch saw physical water (verse 36) but that is a false vision, because the Scriptures testify of The Lord Jesus Christ.

John 5:39 " Search the scriptures; for in them ye think ye have eternal life: and they are they which testify of me"

John 15:26 "But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me"

Acts 8:27-28 "27 And he arose and went: and, behold, a man of Ethiopia, an eunuch of great authority under Candace queen of the Ethiopians, who had the charge of all her treasure, and had come to Jerusalem for to worship,28 Was returning, and sitting in his chariot read Esaias the prophet"
 
It says that the eunuch was reading the book Esaias or Isaiah, the Scripture.

Acts 8:32-33 "32 The place of the scripture which he read was this, He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and like a lamb dumb before his shearer, so opened he not his mouth:33 In his humiliation his judgment was taken away: and who shall declare his generation? for his life is taken from the earth" This Scripture is found in Isaiah 53.

Acts 8:34 "And the eunuch answered Philip, and said, I pray thee, of whom speaketh the prophet this? of himself, or of some other man?"

The eunuch still blind, cannot see nor understand of whom the Scripture is talking about; but listen to verse 35 " Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus"

I like to declare that my soul was filled or satisfied when I saw the Lord Jesus Christ in Isaiah 53; I saw Him as the Lamb of God dying for my sins. The eunuch did not see physical water, but Christ as the sacrificial Lamb.

Acts 8:36 "And as they went on way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?

"As they went on way" = they are reading the Scriptures.
 
Proverbs 9:6  "Forsake the foolish, and live; and go in the way of understanding"
 
Ecclesiastes 9:7 "Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart; for God now accepteth thy works"
 
Isaiah 30:21 "And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left"

"they came unto certain water" = the Truth of the Word.
 
Psalm 33:4 "For the word of the LORD right; and all his works in truth"
 
"the eunuch said; see, water" = The Lord Jesus Christ is revealed unto him.
 
Isaiah 53:1 "Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the LORD revealed?

"what doth hinder me to be baptized?" = The eunuch yearns to be baptized: which is "assurance of Salvation" that, can only come through the baptism of the Holy ghost.
 
Isaiah 32:17 "And the work of righteousness shall be peace; and the effect of righteousness quietness and assurance for ever"
 
Righteousness = the Lord Jesus Christ
 
Ephesians 1:13-14 "13 In whom ye also, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, ye were sealed with that holy Spirit of promise,14 Which is the earnest of our inheritance until the redemption of the purchased possession, unto the praise of his glory"
 
God's chosen people are baptized in Christ when we heard the word of truth, the gospel of our Salvation.
 
This is what happened to me when I saw the Lord Jesus Christ in Isaiah 53: Matthew 5:6 " Blessed they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled"
 
I WAS FILLED!  And I am still filled. The Lord Jesus Christ is the Righteousness of God and my Righteousness. I understand that only God's elect/chosen people will see the Lord Jesus Christ with spiritual eyes.

John 6:39-40 "39 And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I lose nothing, but raise it up again at the last day.40 And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day"

The seeing in verse 40 is spiritual; in order for anyone to see Christ as the Water, he/she must have spiritual eyes, and this is in God's hand.
 
Proverbs 20:12  "The hearing ear, and the seeing eye, the LORD hath made even both of them"

Isaiah 54:17 " No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness of me, saith the LORD"

False teachers say that the true believer must go in the physical water and if I do not do it, I am not a child of God. With this teaching they deny the work of Christ is sufficient for the salvation of the soul and they make people feel good they are obedient to God's commandments when they do physical works; so Salvation is Christ plus something they do. This is a deceit of their hearts. False teachers do not have water for God's poor chosen people, but the Lord has promised He will provide for His people.

Isaiah 41:17-20 "17 The poor and needy seek water, and none, their tongue faileth for thirst, I the LORD will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them.18 I will open rivers in high places, and fountains in the midst of the valleys: I will make the wilderness a pool of water, and the dry land springs of water.19 I will plant in the wilderness the cedar, the shittah tree, and the myrtle, and the oil tree; I will set in the desert the fir tree, the pine, and the box tree together:20 That they see, and know, and consider, and understand together, that the hand of the LORD hath done this, and the Holy One of Israel hath created it"
 
Trees = people
 
Isaiah 55:8-13 " For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord.For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.10 For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater:11 So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper whereto I sent it.12 For ye shall go out with joy, and be led forth with peace: the mountains and the hills shall break forth before you into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.13 Instead of the thorn shall come up the fir tree, and instead of the brier shall come up the myrtle tree: and it shall be to the Lord for a name, for an everlasting sign that shall not be cut off"

The Lord Jesus Christ is the Water in Acts 8:26-39.
