Hloy Spirit Baptism 1

What does it mean to be baptized in the Holy Spirit? 

  • It is not water baptism, though water baptism is important, too.
  • Instead of the preacher baptizing a person into water,  Jesus will baptize a person into the Holy Spirit.
  • The Holy Spirit comes INTO a person upon salvation, but the Holy Spirit comes UPON a person with  this subsequent baptism.
  • To 'baptize' means to immerse or dunk or submerge, so the Spirit has come within you to abide, but He needs to come upon  you for service.
  • When the Spirit comes upon a person, He brings power.
  • The Christian needs Holy Spirit power to live and also to preach and minister to others.
  • This power includes speaking in tongues, and the other gifts of the Spirit (1 Cor 12).
