The Baptism of the Holy Spirit

WHAT IT IS -- WHAT IT DOES FOR YOU -- HOW TO RECEIVE IT

BIBLICAL BACKGROUND

"All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine,

for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the

man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work"

(II Timothy 3:16, 17).

"Now concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I do not want you to be ignorant" (1 Corinthians 12:1).

"Even as the testimony to Christ was confirmed among you - so that you are not lacking in any spiritual gift, as you wait for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Corinthians 1:6,7).

"For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ" (Galatians 3:26,27).

Evidence of the Baptism Into The Body Of Christ -- Gifts of the Holy Spirit

John answered, saying, to all "I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I is coming, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose.

He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire" (Luke 3:16).

And John bore witness, saying, "I saw the Spirit descending from heaven like a dove, and he remained upon him. I did not know him, but he who sent me to baptize with water said to me, "Upon whom you see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, this is he who baptizes with the Holy Spirit." And I have seen and testified that this is the Son of God" (John 1:32-34)!

OLD TESTAMENT PROPHECY

CONCERNING BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT:

"For it is with stammering lips and another tongue he will speak to this people, to whom he said, "This is the rest with which you may cause the weary to rest," and "This is the refreshing"; yet they would not hear" (Isaiah 28:11).

NEW TESTAMENT FULFILLMENT OF THIS PROPHECY:

"In the law it is written: "With men of other tongues and other lips I will speak to this people; and yet, for all that, they will not hear me"

(1 Corinthians 14:21).

OLD TESTAMENT PROPHECY

CONCERNING BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT:

"And is shall come to pass afterward that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions. And also on my menservants and on my maidservants I will pour out my Spirit in those days" (Joel 2:28-29).

NEW TESTAMENT FULFILLMENT OF THIS PROPHECY:

"But this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel: "And it shall come to pass in the last days, says God, that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh; your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your young men shall see visions, your old men shall dream dreams. And on my menservants and on my maidservants I will pour out my Spirit in those days; and they shall prophesy" (Acts 2:16-18).
