Baptism Of The Holy Spirit
Baptism of the Holy Spirit refers to the infilling of the Holy Spirit.
When we say a person has been baptized by the Holy Spirit, we mean that a person is fully filled with the Spirit of God.
Receiving the Holy Ghost and baptism of the Holy Ghost are two separate concepts.
Receiving the gift of the Holy Spirit occurs during repentance coupled with baptism all the way under in water in the name of Jesus Christ.
Act 2:38 Then Peter said unto them, Repent, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost.
On the other hand, baptism of the Holy Ghost means to be filled with the Holy Spirit which can only be achieved through righteousness and living a life that is comforting to the Spirit of God.
The Holy Spirit dwells in an environment of righteousness. The word of God tells us not to grieve the Holy Spirit which we were sealed by on the day of salvation.
You cannot claim to be baptized by the Holy Spirit if you are living in sin.
The word of God tells us that the evidence that the Spirit of God is in us is through living a life of repentance and holiness.
Rom 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
Rom 8:10 And if Christ be in you, the body is dead because of sin; but the Spirit is life because of righteousness.
When the Spirit of God enters a person, the person will receive the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
Some people will be able to speak in diverse tongues as the Spirit of God enables them, some will be able to prophecy, while others will be good at teaching or preaching convicting sermons that may lead sinners to repentance.
Joel 2:28 And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, your old men shall dream dreams, your young men shall see visions:
Joel 2:29 And also upon the servants and upon the handmaids in those days will I pour out my spirit.
Believers in Christ Jesus, let us live a life or repentance and Holiness that provides a condusive environment for the Spirit of God.
Only by living Holy lives in Christ Jesus can we firmly claim to be baptized by the Holy Spirit.
