Baptism; Water or Holy Spirit:


Baptism in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost: 
Baptism in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Ghost is the rite,
or ordinance by which persons are admitted into a Church of Christ.
(Do not forget who is the Father, Son, and Holly Spirit: Jesus Christ)
Water Baptism =  Is the public profession of faith and discipleship.
Baptism signifies—
*A confession of faith in Christ;
*A cleansing or washing of the soul from sin;
*A death to sin and a new life in righteousness.
(Baptism dose not save) (Baptism dose not cleans you from sins)


The command to baptize was co-extensive with the command to preach the gospel.
All nations were to be evangelized; and they were to be made disciples,
admitted into the fellowship of Christ’s religion, by baptism.
(Matthew 28:19)
It appears to have been a kind of transition from the Jewish baptism to the Christian.
The distinction between John’s baptism and Christian baptism
appears in the case of Apollos, (Acts 18:26,27) and of the disciples at
Ephesus mentioned (Acts 19:1-6)
We cannot but draw from this history the inference that in
Christian baptism there was a deeper spiritual significance;
but at the same time this water baptism was only done first
by John the Baptist; to bring the Old Testament into the New Testament;
John the Baptist was no longer needed after Jesus was baptized;
This water baptism was the start of the ministry of Jesus:
The Holy Spirit also came upon Jesus after He was baptized:

John the Baptist was the first person to have the Holy Spirit in Him;
Luke 1: 13-17
13. But the angel said unto him, Fear not, Zacharias: because thy supplication is heard, and thy wife Elisabeth shall bear thee a son, and thou shalt call his name John.
14. And thou shalt have joy and gladness; and many shall rejoice at his birth.
15. For he shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and he shall drink no wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Spirit, even from his mother’s womb.
16. And many of the children of Israel shall be turn unto the Lord their God.
17. And he shall go before his face in the spirit and power of Elijah, to turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the disobedient to walk in the wisdom of the just; to make ready for the Lord a people prepared for him.

Jesus said that once He was raisin from the dead, and sitting at the Fathers right hand He would send the promise of the Father; The Holy Spirit that would now be in you;
In the Old Testament the Holy Spirit only came on a person, and would leave if you sinned; but in the New Testament He; (the Holy Spirit) would be in a person, and will never leave;

Acts 19: 1-6
1 And it came to pass, that, while Apollos was at Corinth, Paul having passed through the upper coasts came to Ephesus: and finding certain disciples,
2 He said to them; Have you received the Holy Ghost since you believed?  And they said to him; We have not so much as heard whether there be any Holy Ghost.
3 And he said to them; To what then were you baptized? And they said, To John's baptism.
4 Then said Paul, John truly baptized with the baptism of repentance, saying to the people, that they should believe on him which should come after him, that is, on Christ Jesus.
5 When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
6 And when Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Ghost came on them; and they spoke with tongues, and prophesied

Acts 18: 24-26
24 And a certain Jew named Apollos, born at Alexandria, an eloquent man, and mighty in the scriptures, came to Ephesus.
25 This man was instructed in the way of the Lord; and being fervent in the spirit, he spoke and taught diligently the things of the Lord, knowing only the baptism of John.
26 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue: whom when Aquila and Priscilla had heard, they took him to them, and expounded to him the way of God more perfectly.


Receive the Holy Spirit

Receive the Holy Spirit

As His child, your loving heavenly Father wants to give you the supernatural power
you need to live this new life.

For every one that asketh receiveth;
and he that seeketh findeth;
and to him that knocketh it shall be opened...
If ye...know how to give good gifts unto your children:
how much more shall your heavenly Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?
LUKE 11:10,13

All you have to do is ask, believe, and receive!
Pray;
Father, I recognize my need for Your power to live this new life.
Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit.
By faith, I receive Him right now!
Thank You for baptizing me.
Holy Spirit, You are welcome in my life.
Thank you Jesus.

Congratulations! Now you’re filled with God’s supernatural power.
Some syllables from a language you don’t recognize will rise up from your heart to your mouth.
(See 1 Cor. 14:4.)( 1 Cor. 14:4)(Jude 1:20-21)
As you speak them out loud by faith, you’re releasing God’s power from within and
building yourself up in the Spirit. (See v. 4.)
You can do this whenever and wherever you like.

It doesn’t really matter whether you felt anything or not when you prayed to receive the Lord and His Spirit. If you believed in your heart that you received, then God’s Word promises you did.
“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray,
believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them”
(Mark 11:24). God always honors His Word; believe it!

The Comforter Spirit of Truth;The Holy Spirit:

John Chapter 15: verse 26
26. But when the Comforter is come,
whom I will send unto you from the Father,
even the Spirit of truth,
which proceeds from the Father, he shall testify of me:

John Chapter 14:Verses 11-14
11. Believe me that I am in the Father,
And the Father in me:
Or else believe me for the very works' sake.
12. Verily, verily, I say unto you,
He that believes on me, The works that I do shall he do also;
And greater works than these shall he do; Because I go unto my Father.
(Jesus rose from the dead went to the Father)
13. And whatsoever you shall ask in my name,
That will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
14. If you shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

John Chapter 14:Verses 16 to 20
16. And I will pray the Father,
And he shall give you another Comforter,
(Holy Ghost or Spirit is the;
Comforter and the Spirit of Truth)
That He may abide with you forever.
17. Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive,
because it sees Him not, neither knows Him: but you know Him;
for he dwells with you, and shall be in you. (Shall Be In You)
(The Father the Son, and The Holy Spirit are one!)
(Jesus dwells with you and shall be in you=Holy Spirit)
for he dwells with you, and shall be in you.
(Here Jesus is telling them about the Holy Spirit that is not yet in them)
18. I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
19. Yet a little while, and the world see me no more;
but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.
20. At that day you shall know that I am in my Father,
and ye in me, and I in you.(What day? The day the Holy Spirit is in you)
John Chapter 14:Verse 26
26. But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost,
Whom the Father will send in my name,(The Holy Spirit not yet given)
He shall teach you all things, and
bring all things to your remembrance,
whatsoever I have said unto you.
(Everyone needs to ask for the Holy Spirit! God will not force you.
He will teach you all things and bring all things to your remenbrance.)

John Chapter 16: verses 7 and 13 to 16
7. Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away:
for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you;
but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
(Send the Holy Ghost to those you ask.)

13. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come,
he will guide you into all truth:
for He shall not speak of himself;
but whatsoever He shall hear, that shall He speak:
and He will show you things to come.
14. He shall glorify me: for He shall receive of mine,
and shall show it unto you.
15. All things that the Father hath are mine:
therefore said I, that He shall take of mine,
and shall show it unto you.
16. A little while, and ye shall not see me:
and again, a little while, and
ye shall see me, because I go to the Father.
John Chapter 7: verses  38-39
38. He that believes on me, as the scripture hath said,
out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.
(tongues is a perfect pray language, that living water.)
39. (But this spake he of the Spirit, which they that believe on him should receive:
for the Holy Ghost was not yet given;
because that Jesus was not yet glorified.)
(Jesus had to be glorifed first then; He;[Jesus] would send the
Holy Spirit to them that ask.)
Acts 1:5
5. For John truly baptized with water; but you shall be baptized with the
Holy Ghost not many days hence.(or to say Holy Spirit)
Acts 2:4
4.And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost,
and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.

The Holy Spirit Jesus sends to the born again believer.
In the new testament one way people knew someone was
saved is they spoke in tongues.
You can be saved without being filled with the Holy Spirit.

When you are saved according to
Romans chapter 10: verses; 9 to 13
9.That if you shall confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus,
and shall believe in your heart that God hath raised him from the dead,
you shall be saved.
10.For with the heart man believes unto righteousness;
and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
11.For the scripture saith, Whosoever believes on him shall not be ashamed.
12.For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek:
for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
13.For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.

When you believed on Jesus you were sealed with the Holy Spirit.!
Ephesians chapter 1:verse 13.
In whom you also [trusted], after that you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that you believed, you were sealed with that Holy Spirit of promise,

The Lord wants his saved people to ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit.
Again Jesus will not force anything on you,
Jesus gave all of mankind a free will;
He wants you to freely choose to be filled.

In the book of Luke chapter 11: verses 9 to 13 reads:
9.And I say unto you, Ask, and it shall be given you;
seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you.
10.For every one that asks receives; and he that seeks finds;
and to him that knocks it shall be opened.
11.If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father,
will he give him a stone? or if [he ask] a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent?
12.Or if he shall ask an egg, will he offer him a scorpion?
13.If you then, being evil,know how to give good gifts unto your children:
how much more shall [your] heavenly
Father give the Holy Spirit to them that ask him?

The Holy Spirit is a Comforter,
Spirit of Truth, and will teach you all things.
Remember they did not have the printed new testament, or a bible.

Just ask and the lord will fill you with the Holy Spirit!

Say This:  
My Father, my God, I come to you in Jesus name, 
and I thank you that Jesus is my Lord and savior, 
I ask now that you would fill me with the Holy Spirit, 
You said in your word that if I ask you would 
fill me with the Holy Spirit,
I ask to be fill with the Holy Spirit;
so I thank you that I am now filled with the Holy Spirit, 
and I can now speak in tongues. Thank You Jesus; Amen.

Now just begin to speak but do not say any know language,
the sounds that come out of your month will be tongues.
It may be sounds that do not make sense.

1Corinthians chapter; 14:verses 14-15
14.For if I pray in an [unknown] tongue,
my spirit prays, but my understanding is unfruitful.
(You can not understand)
15.What is it then? I will pray with the spirit,
and I will pray with the understanding also:
I will sing with the spirit,
and I will sing with the understanding also.
