What is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit?
The baptism of the Holy Spirit is second only to salvation in importance for the believer. We must all be saved. Humans must all know Jesus Christ. We must be saved from eternal death and damnation. Saved for life eternal. Saved to be with God eternally.
Life begins when every human is conceived and continues on for eternity. Everyone is born once, then there is the judgment. There is no religious reincarnation ( Hebrews 9:27). Everyone is responsible for their own choices. Once your are saved (Romans 10:8,9) you are born again. John 3:3 literally says, born from above. Your spirit is reborn. You are new in God.
The next step is you need God’s power over flowing in your life. You can put a battery in a device, but if it is charged it is going to be more effective. It is powered up.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit is a daily filling of Gods power and presence in your life. You get the Baptism of the Holy Spirit when you ask for it. (Ask for it NOW ) It is an overflowing of God. In John 7:38, the Lord God Jesus Christ teaches us that out of our bellies, our innermost being, flows rivers of living water. This is the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Ephesians 5:8 tells us to literally ‘be being filled with the Spirit’. Once you receive the baptism, it is time to bubble and overflow. By overflow of the Holy Spirit we minister to the lost and dying people around us. By the Holy Spirit, we heal the sick, raise the dead, cast our demons, and teach with a special anointing that no religious person can ever have.
Jesus Christ is our example of how ministry must be done. Jesus is our example of how we are to live. We are to life live to the fullest (John 10:10). We are not overcome, we are overcomers! (1 John 5:4). We are not victims of the world, the enemy, or our circumstances. We are victors! Jesus spent time every day to fellowship in the Spirit. Remember He would go off to the quiet places (Learn about that here). before the start of each day. Who are we to think we aren’t supposed to be doing the same thing? We are the sheep and He is our shepherd.
