Baptism of the Holy Spirit
God established His creation in the Trinity and they are as
follows: Trinity of God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost;
trinity of man: body, soul, and spirit; trinity of the Kingdom which
functions with mercy, grace, and faith; and the trinity of the
baptism: the Father, the Word (Christ), and the Holy Spirit
which are witnessed both in heaven and on earth.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit is vital to the life of a believer,
for everything within the Kingdom of Heaven comes to us
through a communion with Him. Many congregations teach of the baptism in Christ and of water, but fail to follow through with the baptism of the Holy Spirit. Without the Holy Spirit, we are absent of the ability to be a part of the spirit realm even though we have been born in Christ for the Father. God gives to His children through the gifts of the Holy Spirit.
For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three agree.
1 John 57
Baptism of the Father - First baptism given: God sent the Holy Spirit to His Son
Baptism of the Word - Christ is the Living Word. God spoke and the Living Word revealed it.
Baptism of the Holy Spirit - The Holy Spirit manifested the Word spoken by God at Creation. The Holy Spirit was given to Jesus by the Father, Jesus gives to His disciples and to each person who is
born of His Spirit and believes.
The Trinity of God: the Father, the Word (Christ), and the Holy Ghost all agree in heaven of the requirements of man for the Kingdom of Heaven.
And there are three that bear witness in earth, the spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one.
1 John 5:8
Baptism in the Holy Spirit - Return to the Father, living spiritually within the Kingdom
Baptism in Water - Repentance; representation of the washing of sins in the Old Testament and nailed to the Cross by Christ in the New Testament.
Baptism in Blood (Christ) - Salvation; redeemed for an eternal life
Christ shed His blood and nailed our transgressions/sins to the Cross whereby we partake of His death (flesh cut off). We are made a new creation in Christ (spirit person) and prepared to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit to live a spirit life within the Kingdom.
God established the means by which we may have a relationship with Him, today and forever. It requires the baptism of the Holy Ghost!
Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. Romans 6:4
Buried with him in baptism, wherein also ye are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. Colossians 2:12
For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 1 Corinthians 12:13
There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling. One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all. Ephesians 4:4-6
I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire. Matthew 3:11
I indeed have baptized you with water: but he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost. Mark 1:8
John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worth to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire. Luke 3:16
And I knew him not, but he that sent me to baptize with water, the same said unto me, Upon whom shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on him, the same is he which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost. John 1:33
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the son, and of the Holy Ghost. Matthew 28:19
