AMAZING BAPTISM OF THE HOLY SPIRIT 2

 HAVE YOU EVER HAD BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT?

“Someday, after mastering the winds, the waves, the tides and gravity, we shall harness for God the energies of love, and then, for a second time in the history of the world, man will have discovered fire.”                                                                                      Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BE? 

The Baptism in the Holy Spirit is not a sacrament, but it is related to several sacraments. It is God’s answer to this malfunctioning that has grown up in the Christian life in the Sacrament of Baptism. We believe that being Baptized in the Holy Spirit makes real and revitalizes our baptism.

I. You First must be “Born Again”:

BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.”                                                                                                                                         John 3:16

BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

Back Message

All have sinned and nothing is hid from God’s holy eyes: “All have sinned, and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 5:12  Will you be innocent or guilty on the Day of Judgment? Listen to your conscience. You know that you will be guilty, and therefore end up in Hell. That’s not God’s will. He provided a way for you to be forgiven.

He sent His Son to take your punishment: “God commended His love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us.” He was bruised for our iniquities. Jesus then rose from the dead and defeated death. He is your “Ticket” to Heaven. He is the “Door,” the only “Way.”

So pray: “Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins (confess them)and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Saviour and Lord , and fill me with your Holy Spirit. Amen    “If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.”                       Romans 10:9

Then read the Bible daily and God will never let you down: “The one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I too will love them and show Myself to them.”                                                                  John 14:21

BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

What is Baptism in the Holy Spirit?

“The Holy Spirit: it is He Who drives away dryness from the soul, maintains and increases its love of the Bridegroom — that He may establish in it the practice of virtue, and all this to the end that the Son of God, its Bridegroom, may rejoice and delight in it more and more, for its only aim is to please the Beloved… The Holy Spirit, Who awakens love; for when this divine Breath breathes on the soul, it so inflames and refreshes it, so quickens the will, and stirs up the desires, which were before low and asleep as to the love of God, that we may well say of it that it quickens the love between Him and the soul.”  St. John of the Cross, a 16th century Spanish priest, mystic, and Doctor of the Church

Man contributes his part — namely, he makes a choice of faith, prepared in repentance, that allows the that allows the work of God to set itself free and to emanate all its strength. It is as if the plug is pulled and the light is switched on. The gift of God is finally “untied” and the Spirit is allowed to flow like a fragrance in the Christian life.

The explanation therefore is in God’s plan. We could say, by paraphrasing a famous saying of the Apostle Paul: Because Christians, with all their organization, were not able to transmit the power of the Spirit, God was pleased to renew the believers through the foolishness of the Baptism in the Spirit. In fact theologians look for an explanation and responsible people for moderation, but simple souls touch with their hands the power of Christ in the Baptism of the Spirit.                      1 Corinthians 12:1-24

We men, and in particular we men of the Church, tend to limit God in His freedom: we tend to insist that He follows a compulsory pattern (the so called channels of grace) and we forget that God is a torrent that breaks loose and creates its own path and that the Spirit blows where and how he wants (notwithstanding the role of the teaching of the Church to discern what actually comes from the Spirit and what does not come from Him.

What does the Baptism of the Spirit consist of and how does it work? In the Baptism of the Spirit there is a secret, mysterious move of God that is His way of becoming present, in a way that is different for each one because only He knows us in our inner part and how to act upon our unique personality. There is also the external community part which is the same for everyone and consists mainly of three things: brotherly love, laying on of hands, and prayer. These are non-sacramental but simply ecclesiastic elements.

One thing is certain — that it is not the brothers who impart the Holy Spirit, but they do invoke the Holy Spirit on the person. The Spirit cannot be given by any man, not even the Pope or a bishop, because no man possesses by himself the Holy Spirit. Only Jesus may give the Holy Spirit; all the others do not possess the Holy Spirit, but rather are possessed by Him. As to the manner of this grace, we may speak of a new coming of the Holy Spirit, of a new mission by the Father through Jesus Christ, or a new anointing corresponding to a new degree of grace.

There are many Christians who claim to have had this “secondary” experience of the Spirit. They say that it has brought great blessing and comfort to them.  Furthermore, they say that the results of the experience is a renewed dedication and appreciation for God, a stronger desire to read the Bible, a stronger desire to fellowship with Christians, and a deeper sense of worship of God.  Millions of Christians who claim to have had this experience forces us to deal with the issue.  Is it real or not?

We can clearly see that the phrase is used in the Bible.  But, we do not find a clear teaching in the Bible of what the phrase means.  Nevertheless, we can conclude that when a person is baptized in the Holy Spirit he has power bestowed upon him.  This power is for the purpose of the preaching of the gospel  Acts 4:31, living a purer life, and having a deeper devotion to God.  Also, it is frequently accompanied by speaking in tongues.   Acts 2:4,  “And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit was giving them utterance.” At this point, I would recommend the reader to examine Acts 1-2 to see the movement of the Holy Spirit upon the early church at Pentecost.

The issue now seems to be whether or not Baptism of/in/with the Holy Spirit is a subsequent event occurring after salvation.  It would seem that this is the case.  In John 20:22, Jesus commanded that the disciples receive the Holy Spirit, “And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, ‘Receive the Holy Spirit’.This means that they were saved since the Holy Spirit is not received by the unregenerate.  Then, later in Acts 1:4-5 we read, “And gathering them together, He commanded them not to leave Jerusalem, but to wait for what the Father had promised, “Which,” He said, “you heard of from Me; for John baptized with water, but you shall be baptized with the Holy Spirit not many days from now.“

The danger of this phenomena is the potential division of the body of Christ into two categories:  those who are “regular” Christians and those who have been baptized in the Holy Spirit.  This, of course, would be an incorrect way of looking at Christians, and this is why.  If you were to step outside into a soft mist, it would take a long time to get completely wet.  On the other hand, if you were to step into a torrential rain, you’d be drenched quickly.

Those who have not experienced the Baptism of the Holy Spirit (meaning a sudden and powerful experience) are not second-class citizens by any means.  They are the ones in the gentle mist who experience the Lord over a long period of time and get just as blessed as those who suddenly step into the torrent of the Spirit’s presence.  In fact, the Baptism of the Spirit can be a pitfall since so many people who have experienced it long for it again, almost to the point of putting the validity of their faith in the experience instead of the clear teaching of the word of God.

PENTECOST BAPTISM

On the day of Pentecost, an extraordinary movement of the Holy Spirit took place. This is the essence of spiritual revival where God’s Spirit is poured into a body of believers and where God’s Spirit is activated in his people and through them.                                   Act 2:17

“Then Jesus came to them and said,

“All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” Matthew 28:18-19 So the form is: “I baptize you in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.”

Baptism BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

The word Baptism is derived from the Greek word, bapto, or baptizo, to wash or to immerse, marked by the application of water to the head or immersion of part or all of a person’s body into water.  

Jesus baptism is the beginning of the adult ministry of Jesus. It was not every day that the people saw the heavens open up, and the voice of God come out of the sky.

BAPTIZED IN THE HOLY SPIRIT

What can we expect when we are “baptized”?

The effect of this sacrament is the remission of all sin: “Be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins; and you shall receive the Holy Spirit.” Acts 2:38 Baptism cleans you of your past and allows you to take on God’s life in you.  Something supernatural occurs: the infusion of grace, which can provide greater revelation in some people, who can do greater works.

No amount of listening to sermons and lectures, no matter how able, no amount of mere study of the Word even, would ever give us to see “the things of Christ”; the Holy Spirit must show us and He is willing to do it and He can do it. He is longing to do it. The Holy Spirit’s most intense desire is to reveal Jesus Christ to us. On the day of Pentecost when Peter and the rest of the company were “filled with the Holy Spirit”, they did not talk much about the Holy Spirit; they talked about Christ. Study Peter’s sermon on that day; Jesus Christ was his one theme.

 “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love Him. But God hath revealed them unto us by His Spirit: for the Spirit searcheth all things, yea, the deep things of God.”                                                                                                                                            1 Corinthians 2: 9-13,

The  baptism with the Holy Spirit is a definite experience of which one may and ought to know whether he has received it or not. Paul asked of the Ephesians the definite question, “Did ye receive the Holy Ghost when ye believed?” Acts 19:3  It is evident that the receiving of the Holy Spirit was an experience so definite that one could answer yes or no to the question whether they had received the Holy Spirit. In this case, the disciples definitely answered, “No” .

Yet He tells these same men that the baptism with the Holy Spirit was an experience that they had not as yet realized, that still lay in the future: “For John baptized with water, but in a few days, you will be baptized with the Holy Spirit.” Acts 1:5  So it is evident that it is one thing to be renewed by the Holy Spirit through the Word and something distinct from this and additional to it to be baptized with the Holy Spirit.

A large company of disciples had believed the preaching of Philip concerning the kingdom of God and were baptized in the name of Jesus Christ. Acts 8:12 Certainly in this company of baptized believers there were at least some persons who were already baptized with water, “When they (Peter and John) were come down, they prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Spirit: for as yet He was fallen upon none of them: only they had been baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus.”               Acts 8: 15,16

A man may be dedicated to the Holy Spirit and still not be baptized with the Holy Spirit. In dedication, there is the importation of life by the Holy Spirit: in the baptism with the Holy Spirit, there is the impartation of power, and the one who receives it is fitted for service. The baptism with the Holy Spirit, however, may take place at the same moment of baptism with water.  

The disciples in Ephesus came before Paul and told them of their larger privilege—baptized believers, baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus, baptized unto repentance and remission of sins, but not as yet baptized with the Holy Spirit. Nevertheless the baptism with the Holy Spirit is the birthright of every believer. It is only by the baptism with the Holy Spirit that one becomes in the fullest sense a member of the body of Christ, because it is only by the baptism with the Spirit that he receives power to perform those functions for which God has appointed him as a part of the body.

We have a Divine Teacher, the Holy Spirit. We shall never truly know the truth until we are thus taught directly by the Holy Spirit. Paul shares his own testimony:  “My speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.”                   1 Corinthians 2:5

God definitely makes His will known: sometimes He makes it known in one way and sometimes in another, but He will clearly make it known to you.

As to the manifestations and knowing that you are indeed baptized in the Holy Spirit, we claim God’s promise and let God take care of the mode of manifestation. It is done in heaven and you now will have new power in your Christian work.

 There is one proviso: for one moment we were to get our eyes off from Jesus Christ, if we were to neglect the daily study of the Word and prayer, down we would go. We must live in the Spirit and walk in the Spirit if we would have continuous victory. Galatians 16:2 The life of the Spirit within us must be maintained by the study of the Word and prayer.

  • Christians don’t shout, “I live a clean life!” Christians whisper “I feel  lost, but now God found me and God forgives me.” 
  • Christians don’t speak with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
  • Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they try to be strong because they need strength. 
  • Christians don’t brag about success, but they admit that they fail and they need God to clean the mess.
  • Christians don’t claim to be perfect, but God still believes in them.
  • Christians still feel the sting of pain. They have their share of headaches but they still call upon His Name.
  • Christians are not holier than others. They are simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.

Christianity on a Table Napkin:

Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS

“If you declare with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.”                                                                                                                                     Romans 10:9

trust Jesus Christ

The real Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He was send by God to come to the earth in the body of a human being. That was, so that He could suffer in the flesh, and take all our sins upon Himself and die in our place. He rose from the dead and lives to pray for us daily.
He is the Savior – The angel announced to Mary; …and you shall call His name JESUS: for He shall save His people from their sins.     Matthew 1:21  It means He has the power to free us, save us and deliver us from sin. He is merciful and has the power to forgive. He brings good news to the poor, heals the heart-broken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His hands.
To receive Jesus as your Savior… SAY:

Lord Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Please hear me today and help me! I want to receive You as my Lord and Savior. Be Lord of my life!  Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen
Your life will begin to change in an amazing way. Without expecting  anything, be sensitive to any dreams or visions. 

God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will begin.  “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.”                                                     Luke 1: 49

Are we not like Barabbas who was justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”?  And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost, like you.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD, “Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool”.                                       Isaiah 1:18

You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to a Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading a short biography of Jesus in  the Gospel of Luke. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising.  He will defend you from attacks of the enemy when you ask Him.
