The Baptism of the Spirit (BOTHS)

I can’t tell you the absolute urgency and need and power and love for, and just pure joy there is in being Filled with Gids Holy Spirit!

In Luke 3:16 Johnthe Baptist said that Jesus would baptize us with the Hily Spirit and Fire!

In Acts 1:4,5 and 8, Jesus said that he would baptize us in the Holy Spirit and that once that “epi” experience happened, that “coming upon us”, we would receive power to be witnesses unto Him!

How does one receive the fullness of God’s Spirit?  I hope the following helps.

1.  Repent of known sin (Acts 2:38)

2.  Thirst for, hunger for, DESIRE the filling! (Matt. 5:6; John 7:37-39)

3.  ASK for it! (Luke 11:13)

4.  Receive it by Faith, just like you received your salvation by faith (Gal. 3:14)

Now, after receiving the Fullness of the Spirit BY FAITH, do the following as much as is possible:
1. Speak! Praise Him with your mouth (Eph. 5:18-20; Acts 4:8, 31 – everyone who was filled with the Spirit in the New Testament always SPOKE afterwards! Sometimes praise, sometime declaring the Word, but they always spoke! The Spirit wants control of your tongue! James chapter 3)
2. Pray (Eph. 6:18)

3. Witness (Acts 1:8)

4. Expect Holy Spirit supernatural manifestations! (Acts 4:30, 31, 33; Gal. 3:1-5)

Walk freely and by faith IN the Power and Fruit of the Spirit (Love, Joy, Peace, Patience, Kindness, Goodness, Gentleness, Faithfulness and Self Control – Gal. 5:22, 23)
