Holy Spirit (Ruach HaKodesh) Baptism is the Initial
for fruitful destiny ministry each of us has been God created for
He (while Jesus was still alive) called His 12 disciples to Him and gave them
authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and
sickness...These 12, Jesus sent out with the following instructions...
"Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons."
However, God's Holy Spirit baptism gives resilience and boldness. Jesus' disciples did healing ministry, but at least on one occasion were intimidated when it came to deliverance. Jesus had to finish the job they left undone - apparently NOT due to the disciples' NOT receiving 2 gifts of the Holy Spirit (healing and evil spirit discernment/exorcism), but perhaps rather due to fear, which for many is a spirit of fear. The disciples apparently were water baptized for the remission of their sins after acknowledging Jesus as Messiah. Subsequently they went in pairs to heal, deliver and do miracles BEFORE Pentecost when the Holy Spirit baptism came. Judas and Peter both hand picked by Christ were traitors before the Holy Spirit baptism which gives boldness...Remember Adam and Eve had ALL authority on earth and Satan tricked them out out of that until Jesus came and retrieved the power Adam abdicated. Genesis 3 + Matthew 4:8-9 + Matthew 28:18 - Remember, Isaac was deceived by his younger son Jacob who stole his elder brother Esau's birthright?
Genesis 25:29-34 - Our enemy Satan the con artist intends that we remain ignorant and impotent sons of God.
After the death of Jesus when the Comforter came, there was a turnaround, evidenced especially by Peter (who denied his affiliation with Jesus - 3 times). The Holy Spirit empowered them with audacity and violence towards the enemy.
Mark 9:17-19,25,28-29 TPNT - 17"Teacher, I brought my son to You because he has a mute (dumb) spirit.
18Wherever it would seize him him it throws him down; he foams at the mouth and he gnashes his teeth and is stiff (pines/wastes away). I asked Your disciples to cast it out, but they were not able."
19He said, "O unbelieving generation, until when will I be with you? How long am I to endure you? Bring him to Me."
25Jesus...rebuked the unclean (foul) spirit by saying to it, "Mute and deaf spirit, I command you; you must come out from him at once and never again can you enter into him."
28His disciples asked Him privately, "Why were we not able to cast it out?"
29He said to them, "This kind is in no way able to come out except in prayer (and fasting)."
Each individual in each generation needs to recognize the implication of Jesus' words spoken on the cross, "It is finished!"
[What is finished? Jesus' regaining/taking back authority and power over everything - over death, over disease, over incurable diseases, over insanity. However, we cannot access that spiritual reality until we do 2 things. Believe and ask. Believe in Jesus as savior of body, mind, and spirit. Believe in Jesus as baptizer in the Holy Spirit. Repent of each and every known sin. Ask Jesus to come live in our heart. Ask Jesus to baptize us in His Holy Spirit. Thank Him based on His Word in scripture and not based on our 5 senses' perception. Allow the Holy Spirit time to download spiritual realities into our human spirit - and then our human spirit to download into our mind/intellect and into our body. Continue to trust His adoption of us even though we may not immediately feel adopted. Continue to trust the work of His Holy Spirit in our human spirit. Continue to feed our human spirit with the Word of God daily. Continue to fellowship with Him daily in prayer and praise. Continue to fellowship with other Christians...
Post Script: An "act" may be necessary to SEAL the deal. That is WATER BAPTISM. Emerson Ferrell contends (along with many others) that one needs to be immersed 3x in the name of the Trinity. If in doubt, do it anyway. Be safe, not sorry!
before the birth of Messiah
6l:1-2 Harkavy 1The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me, because He
hath anointed Me to
preach good tidings unto the meek; He hath sent Me to bind
up the broken-hearted, to proclaim
liberty to the captive, and the deliverance
to them that are bound;
2to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all that mourn.
Scripture before the death and resurrection of Messiah
Before the Messiah sent His Holy Spirit
Matthew 10:1,5,8 -
He (while Jesus was still alive) called His
12 disciples to Him and gave them authority to drive out evil spirits and to
heal every disease and sickness...These 12, Jesus sent out with the
"...Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons."
Matthew 28:18-19 NIV - Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to Me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son AND of the Holy Spirit."
Mark 16:14-18 Later (after Jesus' resurrection from the dead) Jesus appeared to the 11 as they were eating. He rebuked them for their lack of faith and their stubborn refusal to believe those who had seen Him after He had risen. He said to them. "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. Whoever believes AND is baptized (immersed) will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned (by Satan and by their unforgiven sin). These signs will accompany those who believe: In My name: (1st)They will drive out demons. (2nd)They will speak in new tongues. (3rd)They will pick up snakes with their hands. (4th)When they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all. (5th)They will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well." After the Lord Jesus had spoken to them, He was taken up into heaven and He sat at the right hand of God. Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed His word by the signs that accompanied it.
The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me (me)
to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me
(me) to heal the
to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the
blind, to set at liberty
those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable
year of the Lord. (Spiritual insight: The Trinity/Jesus/the Holy Spirit
in me is God at work in the earth.)
John 1:19-20, 25-26, 33-34 KJV Dake
19The Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him "Who art thou?"
20He confessed and denied not; but confessed, "I am not the Christ"...
25They asked him, and said unto him, "Why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias (Elijah in Greek), neither that prophet (Elisha/Eliseus in Greek)?
26John answered them saying, "I baptize with water"...
33"He that sent me to baptize with water, the Same said unto me", 'Upon Whom thou shalt see the Spirit descending, and remaining on Him, the same is He which baptizeth with the Holy Ghost.'"
34 I saw, and bare record that this (Person) is the Son of God."
John 20:19-23 On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jews, Jesus came (through the locked door) and stood among them and said, "Peace be with you" After He said this, He showed them His (crucified) hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord. Again Jesus said, "Peace be with you. As the Father has sent Me, I am sending you."
With that He breathed on them and said, "Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone his sins, they are forgiven (released from apologizing and debt owed, but not free to abuse). If you (retain) do not forgive them, they are (retained) not forgiven." Now Thomas (called Didymus) 1 of the 12, was not with the disciples when Jesus came.
Acts 1:4-5 TPNT - 4At one of these
gatherings [apparitions/appearances (during 40 days) after His death], He
instructed them NOT to leave Yerushalayim (Jerusalem) but to 'Wait
for what the father promised, which you heard about
5For Yochanan (John) used to immerse people in water; but in a few (10) days (at the feast of Pentecost), you will be immersed in the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit).'
Scripture after the resurrection of Messiah
After the descent of God's Holy Spirit
Acts 2:16-18 TPNT - 16This is what was spoken about through the prophet
see Psalm 69:25-26; 109:8)
17Adonai says, 'In the last days I will pour our from My Spirit upon everyone.
Your sons and daughters will prophesy; your young men will see visions; your old men will dream dreams.
18Even on My slaves, both men and women, will I pour out from My Spirit in those days, and they will prophesy.'
Acts 2:38 KJV 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.
Acts 2:33 TPNT - He has been exalted to the right hand of God; has received from the Father what He promised,
namely, the Ruach HaKodesh; and has poured out this (heavenly holy) gift (of the baptism in the Holy Spirit evidenced at Pentecost), which you are both seeing (witnessing the appearance of drunkeness or being slain/inebriated in the Holy Spirit) and hearing (others speaking foreign and/or angelic languages/tongues).
Acts 2:38-39 TPNT - Kefa (Peter) answered them, "Turn from sin (cited in the Torah), return to God (of Abraham and Moses), and each of you be immersed; on the authority of Yeshua (Jesus Christ God's son) the Messiah into forgiveness of your sins; & you will receive the gift of the Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit)! 39For the promise is for you, for your children, and for those far away, as many as Adonai our God may call."
Acts 2:41 TPNT - Those who accepted what he said were immersed (under water/baptized) and there were added to the group that day about 3,000.
Acts 6:3-6 TPNT - 3"You brothers must now provide 7 approved men from yourselves, (already) filled (baptized) with the (Holy) Spirit and wisdom, whom we could appoint for this (specific ministry) need.
4We shall persist in prayer and in the service of the Word."
5The request pleased the whole multitude and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and the Holy Spirit, Philip, Prochoros, Nicanor, Timon, Parmenas, and Nicolas, a proselyte from Antioch,
6whom they stood before the apostles; when they prayed,
they laid hands on them (to commission/empower/appoint them).
Acts 8:14-17 - 14When the apostles in Jerusalem heard that Samaria had accepted the word of God (Jesus as Messiah), they sent Peter and John to them.
15When they arrived, they prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit,
16because the Holy Spirit had not yet come upon any of them; they had simply been baptized into the name of the Lord Jesus.
17Then Peter and John placed their hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit (baptism).
Acts 8:13-17 TPNT - 13Even Simon (a powerful practicer of magic arts) himself believed and after he was baptized (with water for the repentance of sins), he was attaching himself to Philip; he was amazed when he saw that there were signs and great miracles. 14When the apostles in Jerusalem hard that the Samaritans welcomed the Word of God, they sent Peter and John to them, 15,who when they went down from Jerusalem, prayed on their behalf to the end that they would take the Holy Spirit: 16for not yet was it fallen upon any of them, but they were only being baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
17Then Peter and John were laying hands on them and they were taking the Holy Spirit.
(evidenced by speaking in tongues. The skill of transference was coveted by Simon.
See Acts 8:18-24.) [TPNT footnote. "The laying on of hands for the baptism comes from this.
See Acts 19:6. Notice that those prayed for (took) the Holy Spirit. The baptism of the Holy Spirit must be sought."]
(Not bought. Also consider that the 3 names of the Trinity may need to be invoked, eg. in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, not just in the Messiah's name.)
Acts 10:44-47 NIV - 43Everyone who believes in Him receives forgiveness of sins through His name.
44While Peter was still speaking these words, the Holy Spirit came on all who heard the message...
46For they heard them speaking in in tongues and praising god. Then Peter said,
47"Can anyone keep these people from being baptized with water"...in the name of Jesus Christ.
Acts 19:2 KJV - "Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed?"
Acts 13:2-4 KJVer - 2As they ministered TO the Lord and fasted, the Holy Ghost said, "Separate Me Barnabas and Saul for the work whereto I have called them."
3When they had fasted, prayed, and laid their hands on them, they sent them away.
4So they, being sent forth by the Holy Ghost, departed.
Romans 10:17 KJV Faith cometh by hearing...the Word of God.
James 1:6-7 KJV - Let him ask in faith,
nothing wavering. He that wavereth is like
a wave of the sea driven with
the wind and tossed. Let not that man think that he
shall receive anything
of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.
James 4:17 KJV - To him that knoweth to do good and doeth it not, to him it is sin.
1st Peter 1:1-2 - Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ, "To God's elect, strangers in the world, scattered throughout Pontus, Galatia, Cappadocia, Asia and Bithynia, who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, through the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkling by His blood.
1 Corinthians 12:28 KJV - God hast set some in the church, 1st apostles, 2nd prophets, 3rd, teachers, after that miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, governments, diversities of tongues.
Ephesians 4:12 KJV For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.

a-The Apostles of Jesus
b-Jesus Christ [Thought. Jesus is NOT cited to have spoken in tongues after His water baptism and subsequent baptism in the Holy Spirit (when the dove descended and Father God spoke). This Holy Spirit baptism or ability to speak in other tongues does not make itself apparent until Penticost.]
We have a rich heritage that seems to have been erased from our textbooks. God intends that we too walk not in their foot steps, but in His foot steps.
Baptism for Ministry
Allen, AA - The Price of God's Miracle Working Power - www.schambach.org - The baptism of the Holy Spirit is the 2nd intervention of God into man's spirit, the 1st being the baptism of water for the forgiveness and removal of sin and iniquity. This qualifies us to receive the fruit and gifts of the Holy Spirit, as we pursue and worship Jesus on a daily basis. As we daily plug into Him, He releases His power and glory into our lives, but only daily, like the daily manna in the dessert.

(Discusses Lutheran confirmation vs German secular/political
http://pdxscholar.library.pdx.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=1045&context=younghistorians pg 11-12 - "The Communist Party provided secular alternatives to religious goods, and great enough benefits from these alternatives that they proved challenging to pass up. It did not only require party members to renounce religion and conform to scientific atheism, but it inspired this sentiment in youth. Christians have Confirmation, Jews have Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, and members of the Communist Party had the atheist Jugend-weihe. Jugend-weihe was a mandatory consecration ceremony for 14-year-old East German youth, confirming them as a socialist citizen: it provided a substitute for the religious goods found in religions like Christianity and Judaism.48 As preparation for this ceremony, youth were taught the 2 fundamental worldviews: 'Materialistic scientific,' a progressive ideology, or atheism, and 'idealistic unscientific,' an irrational ideology that puts a brake on human progress, or religion.49 In the ceremony, the youth pledged themselves to scientific socialism. Jugend-weihe became a requirement for access to higher education and good jobs. Though church leaders protested that it violated the First Commandment, by the 1980’s 97% of children participated in Jugend-weihe, while only around a 5th were religiously confirmed.50 ...This dominance of atheism in East Germany materialized primarily within the span of 1945-1989, or the reign of the German Democratic Republic.3 "
Baker, Rolland and Heidi - There Is Always Enough -
The Bakers share with us that demons often manifest themselves during baptism by
water immersion after the children are saved at their mission, dump ministries,
or street ministries; after gentle prayer, the baptized children are delivered
and often pray in tongues.
Baker, HA - Visions Beyond the Veil - www.irismin.com - True stories of the Adullam Rescue Mission, Yunnafu, China, where God visited personally ALL the children ages 6-18 and baptized them with His Holy Spirit. This book shows how the Holy Spirit bypasses the mind (soul) to work as a spirit using our bodies, the same way that sometimes an evil spirit works. An eye opener. Baker shares that prophetic preaching is the mouth speaking in tongues (bypassing the mind), with interpretation following.

Chapter 11 Activating Prophetic Destiny is a "must reading" for those who
want their lives to count something for God. Refer to Ezekiel 2:7, 3:4;
Revelation 10:2,8; Jeremiah 29:11 and Hebrews 10:7..."Father I want to eat the scroll. I want to eat pages from my book
of the future that will become knowledge - the when, where and how of my
destiny. Show me the title of my book...What page and chapter am I in?
How many books are written about me? Show me what's coming in my
(Your) ministry. Show it to me like You unrolled the
scroll for Ezekiel. I want to eat the book I want an impartation
that becomes knowledge...I'm waiting for commissioning and new mantles.
Let the scrolls come now. I thank You for the books
of remembrance and of
the future. I commit myself to both." In Jesus name.

Father insists that as a certified college professor, priest, chaplain, and pastoral counselor, he would be disqualified - without the baptism in the Holy Spirit - and end up with human results rather than God's. He also notes that the short time after the Holy Spirit baptism is the honeymoon period. He says this baptism is a must for each of us, not only for priests and revered saints. He was privileged to be prayed over by Kathryn Kuhlman in Jerusalem. He remarks that only one who has a personal relationship with Christ can evangelize and explain to others their need for a personal relationship with Jesus; one cannot share what he does not have. You cannot share a loaf of bread if you have no bread. The spirit of Christ is contagious, like a virus, and not taught.

Chapter 1 Three Pillars of Wisdom "You can be absolutely sure that God has something for you to do NOW and a special privileged place in which to put you...There is a job to suit you (now) and a job for which you are being prepared...
God gives us the power to do what He commands. That power comes through the baptism with the Holy Spirit."
Chapter 2 God Has Taken the Field "To claim to possess the Holy Spirit and deny the very work which has always distinguished Him can only grieve Him...One filling of the Spirit is not lasting or enough, and we need to keep coming for a repeat experience - 'many fillings'...John plainly announced the purpose of Christ - to baptize men and women in the Spirit (Luke 3:16)...Christ is called the Baptizer because that is His constant work, His heavenly office - the baptizer in the Holy Spirit...When someone says he or she has been baptized in the Spirit, how long does it last? a week? an hour? six months? Does the Holy Spirit leak away like power from a car battery?...At the dawn of the twentieth century it was taught for the first time that the sign of tongues (glossolalia) was the assurance of the baptism in the Spirit...The Holy Spirit was God in earthly activity, just as Jesus had been. The baptism in the Spirit is not meant to be a single emotional event recorded in believers' diaries...Terms, such as 'coming upon,' 'being filled,' 'drinking' and 'anointing,' describe the same divine gift of the Spirit. Christ said we should 'ask...seek...knock' (Matt.7:7). This applies to receiving the baptism of the Spirit also...If we do what the apostles did and we get what the apostles got, its name doesn't matter....When people were baptized they were anointed afterward to receive the Spirit. It was called 'chrism.'"
Bonnke, Reinhard - Mighty Manifestations - workbook and study guide - www.cfan.org
Bonnke, Reinhard - The Holy Spirit Baptism - www.cfan.org
Bonnke, Reinhard - Holy Spirit Revelation & Revolution - Exploring Holy Spirit Dimensions - Speaking in tongues is the only SIGN indicated in scripture as evidence for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is done by Jesus Christ the baptizer, having arisen from the dead and sitting at the right hand of God. "Jesus did NOT baptize anybody with the Holy Spirit while He was on earth." NOBODY except Christ baptizes in or imparts the Holy Spirit, such as by laying on of hands. The baptism in the Holy Spirit and salvation are NOT doctrines nor sacraments, but rather a live person of the Trinity indwelling a human being, making him alive to Father God. "Without the Holy Spirit, religious faith runs on a flat battery."

Chapter 6 Baptism of the Holy Spirit "The Holy Spirit
goes a step beyond regeneration (salvation/being
born-again/receiving forgiveness and eternal life) and that's what the
baptism of the Holy Spirit is all about. Regeneration is NOT the same
experience as the baptism of (or with) the Holy Spirit.
Of course, both regeneration and the baptism of the Holy Spirit can happen at
the same time. But in other cases there is an interval of time between the
Before Jesus' death His disciples had already received eternal life, for Jesus
called them in person and they obeyed Him, believing that He was the son of
God...Jesus also testified in John 13:10 that His disciples were all
clean except Judas Iscariot...Jesus admitted that the 70 disciples had already
received everlasting life (see Luke 10:20)"
Acts 8:14-17 KJV When the apostles which were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the Word of God, they sent unto them Peter and John, who, when they were come down, prayed for them, that they might receive the Holy Ghost (baptism)[For as yet, He (the Holy Spirit) was fallen upon none of them. They were only baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.] Then they laid their hands on them, and they received the Hoy Ghost.
"Christians today are NOT powerless, sick and spiritless because they are NOT born again, but because they have NOT received the fullness of the Holy Spirit, the tremendous power of God for service."
Luke 3:16 KJV "I indeed baptize you with water, but One mightier than I cometh, the latchet of Whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose; He shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire."
Acts 1:4-5 KJV "Wait for the promise of the Father, which ye have heard of Me; for John truly baptized with water, but ye shall be baptized with the Holy Ghost not many days hence."
"The Jewish calendar tells us...Jesus died at the Passover feast. The Holy Spirit (baptism) came upon the disciples on the day of Pentecost, a feast celebrated 50 days after Passover. Jesus had shown Himself to His disciples for 40 days between His resurrection and ascension. So the disciples gathered together in Jerusalem for prayer for about 10 days."
Act 2:1-4 KJV When the day of Pentecost was full come, they were all with one accord in one place. Suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. There appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. They were all filled with the Holy Ghost
and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance...Speaking in tongues in itself is not the fullness of the Holy Spirit, but as confirmed in the Scriptures tongues is the common external sign that a person has received the fullness of the Holy Spirit."
Chapter 7 Receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit - "Those who want to receive the promised baptism of the Holy Spirit should have a fervent expectation and a desperate desire to receive...If those who want to receive the Holy Spirit are half in doubt...lukewarm...that God will give them the baptism of the Holy Spirit if He want to, they cannot receive no matter how long they pray...We must take care of any sin in our lives before we pray for the experience of the baptism of the Spirit...Try to be baptized with water as soon as possible as it is the external sign of salvation; but to conclude that unless you are baptized with water, you receive neither remission of sins nor baptism of the Holy Sprit is against the teachings of the Bible."

Copeland, Kenneth - Kenneth Copeland
Ministries - John G Lake - www.kcm.org
* Lake contends that one must consecrate his spirit, his mind, and
his body to God. Salvation/water baptism of the spirit alone is
insufficient for God to do His best work in us. God wants us to be clones
of Jesus, sons with Holy Spirit powers equal to Jesus.
We must not be so
heavenly minded that we are no earthly good.
We must daily (until death)
hunger after and pursue the mind of God in each situation,
be translated to heaven, and then with Holy Spirit boldness accomplish on earth what He has already been accomplished in heaven. Most of us do no take what has already been accomplished in heaven. That is why many prayers are not answered. It is not God's fault. It is not Satan's fault. It is our neglect. God is waiting on us to act on our own behalf and on the behalf of others. This is our mandate as brothers/sisters of Christ and sons/daughters of God. Wake up. Do not lose 40 years as Moses did.
In Chapter 25 Adventures in God Lake testifies that God healed him of a 9 year bout with constipation upon his 100% consecration of his spirit, mind and body to God.
Chapter 25 also addresses Paul's thorn in the flesh. Lake contends that on the 3rd plea, Paul was healed. Lake believes 2nd Corinthians 12:9 should read, "Paul, My grace is sufficient for you (to heal your spirit,
to heal your mind and to heal your body).
Chapter 43 The Baptism of the Holy Ghost has a plethora of "awe inspiring, unique, and encouraging" sermons. This chapter in itself is a reason to buy this book. (A "must read" book.)

Ferrell, L Emerson -
The Supernatural Believing the Consciousness of Christ
Chapter 2 Sin Consciousness Versus Christ Consciousness -
Matthew 28:19 KJV - Wherever you go, make disciples of all nations;
baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son ant, of Joseph son of Elid the Holy Spirit."
Immersion into Christ produces a SUBSTANCE, which forms your character...Baptism into the nature of the Son produces obedience to the Father...Immersion into the Holy Spirit baptizes us into the manifestation of the Godhead."
Ferrell, L. Emerson - Immersed in Him - www.voiceofthelight.com - also introductory video -http://www.voiceofthelight.com/VOTLM2009/ImmerseInHim/ImmersedInHIMFirstChapter.pdf - Emerson gives his personal testimony + his understanding that there needs to be 3 water immersions (dunkings/baptisms), in the name of the Father, the Son, AND the Holy Spirit. [The 3rd seems to be for the baptism of the Holy Spirit, Who empowers us to be useful to the Trinity and imparts both spiritual gifts and spiritual fruit enabling us to raise the dead, heal, deliver and do miracles. Emerson suggests that one's operation in these powers is the "sign" (seal) marking one's passport into the Kingdom of God, rather than one's "speaking in tongues". Jesus began His ministry immediately after His baptism by John. Jesus said per Luke 4:21 and Isaiah 61:1-2, "TODAY this scripture has been fulfilled in your ears."] The Baptism of Jesus by His cousin John in the Jordan river. (Matthew 3:13-17, Mark 1:9-11,Luke 3:21-22) The Ministry of Jesus Begins (Luke 3:23) Then (after His public river baptism) Jesus was beginning His ministry at about 30 years old, being a Son, as it was thought of Joseph,
son of Eli. Immediate Demonic Temptation of Jesus (Matthew 4:1-11, Mark 1:12-13) Luke 4:1-2 TPNT)
1Now Jesus returned from the Jordan (river) FULL of the Holy Spirit and He was being led in(to) the wilderness by the (Holy) Spirit, 2being tested by the devil for 40 days. Beginning of Jesus' Ministry in Galilee [after baptism + temptation (of Jesus' human soul/mind)] (Matthew 4:12-17, Mark 6:1-6, Luke 4:14-15)
Jesus' hometown Nazareth rejects Him. (Matthew 13:53-58, Mark 6:1-6, Luke 4:16-30) Luke 4:16 TPNT Then He came into Nazareth, which was where He grew up, and He entered the synagogue according to His custom on the day of Sabbaths (feast days) and He stood up to read. 17A scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him and when He opened the scroll He found the place (Isaiah 6l:1-2) where it was written:
18"The (Holy) Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach Good News to the repentant; He has sent Me to preach release to (physical & spiritual) captives and recovery of (physical & spiritual) sight to the blind, to send release to the (demonically & physically) oppressed,
19to preach the acceptable year (of deliverance) of the Lord."
20Then rolling up the scroll, after He gave it back to the attendant, He sat down. The eyes of all in the synagogue were looking attentively at Him.
21He began to say to them, "TODAY this Scripture has been fulfilled in your ears"...
[One might be able to conclude that Jesus the man (flesh and soul) was enabled to begin to become the Christ when His human spirit was united to the Holy Spirit. Probably that would have been true of the 1st Adam - and of each human. However, as Jesus' Spirit was God from the moment of conception, that is what (in all likelihood) enabled Him to never submit to temptation. Even though Jesus' disciples did wonders, they did greater works AFTER Jesus' crucifixion and resurrection, when He sent our helper the Holy Spirit at Pentecost...There is a deeper understanding. When one's human spirit is immersed into the Holy Spirit (when the veil to heaven is ripped open) one can (often at will) peer into the mind and heart of God. One can WATCH what the Father God is doing. One can reproduce it on earth. Jesus said that He did ONLY what He SAW His Father in heaven doing. Remember, Jesus taught in the Lord's prayer for us to ask, "May it be done on earth as it is now done in heaven." When we observe it being done in heavenly places, this prayer becomes more of a command, "Be done on earth NOW, as it is now done in heaven, in Jesus' name."
Numbers 12:6 KJVer - He said, "Hear now My words, 'If there be a prophet among you, I the Lord will make Myself known to him in a vision and will speak to him in a dream.'"
John 16:14-15 - He (the Holy Spirit) shall glorify Me (Jesus), for He shall receive of Mine and shall show it to you. All things that the Father has are mine. Therefore I said that He (the Holy Spirit) shall take of Mine and shall SHOW it to you.
John 8:38 TNAB I tell what I have seen in the Father's presence.]
Fife, Dr Dale A - The Secret Place (#1) - www.whitakerhouse.com
Fife, Dr Dale A - The Hidden Kingdom (#2) - www.whitakerhouse.com - Jesus told Dale that one must believe in Him AND also be baptized in order to be saved. Dale admonishes us to ask our pastors to baptize us with water and to ask Jesus to baptize us with His Holy Spirit. Those of us who have had an infant christening or infant baptism, may want/need to pursue an adult baptism, even if our local congregation accepts that as sufficient. Lakes, rivers, oceans and swimming pools work as well as church tubs.
Frodsham, Stanley H - With Signs Following - www.persecution.com - May 2004 magazine The Voice of the Martyrs spells out the trials of those who first printed the Bible in various countries and the trials even now in many countries. The Word of God is surely written in not only the blood of Christ, but also the blood of many translators, printers, and holy smugglers. Certainly scripture contains the secrets to eternal life, and to the healing of infirmities, broken relationships, broken bodies and broken minds. It is a treasure the enemy does not want us to share.

The Holy Spirit -
Graham says that it is a waste of our/God's time to pant after power which we do
not intend to use, for might in prayer that we do not intend to pray, for
strength to testify when we do not intend to witness, for power unto holiness
without the aim to pursuing it, for grace to suffer without taking up our cross
and for power in service while we sit idle; God gives dying grace only to the dying!

Chapter 4 How Satan Influences Lives Today - Jesus "went on to say, 'These (evil) spirits will know (recognize the Holy Sprit in) you. Through the gift of discerning of spirits you will know what kind of (evil) spirit it is (in the other individual)...To cast them out (to dry places per Matthew 12:43) you sometimes have to know not only the kind of spirit they are but also their name or number.'"
Hammond, Frank - Pigs in the Parlor - A Practical Guide to Deliverance -
Some who cannot speak/pray/sing in tongues or who can only say a few words
(after asking for the baptism in the Holy spirit) may be prevented by
hindering/interfering evil spirits, perhaps due to past occult involvement, such
as dabbling with a Ouija board. We can ask the Holy Spirit to reveal
any open doors which let the evil spirit enter.
Then we need to shut the door, after evicting the demon.

Heflin, Ruth Ward - Glory -
Heflin, Ruth Ward - Revival Glory - www.revivalglory.org - Ruth says that Jews will never be baptized in non-flowing water. John 4:10 NIV - Jesus answered her, "If you knew the gift of God and Who it is that asks you for a drink, you would have asked Him and He would have given you living water."
Heflin, Ruth Ward - http://www.calvarycampground.org/wp-content/uploads/glorybooks/revivalglory.pdf - "The river flows down from the throne of God, flows down into the very depths of our beings and flows out through us to others, and none of that is controlled by our own wills. The river has a will of its own. The Spirit is the river, and the river is the Spirit. The will
of the river is the will of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, we must join ourselves to the purpose of the will of God. But the prophetic word cannot come forth unless you let it come forth...The other manifestations of the waters of life cannot come forth unless you let them come forth. Although the river has a will of its own, you can prevent it from performing
its desired function by not yielding. Let the river flow...
I have seen the glory come in as a river and have seen that it is not democratic. We can’t vote on it. We can’t choose those to whom the river will flow. The river has a will of its own. We can, however, have an influence on the river. How is that?
Jesus said it, 'If any man is thirsty, let him come and drink'...
All the questions that are in your heart can be answered. Your great thirst moves the heart of God like nothing else can. You may try to influence God in 100 other ways, but no thing can do it like your spiritual desire. He responds to your desire for Him...
The enemy of your souls knows the power of desire and would try to channel your thirst into any range of other matters. Don’t let him do it. Focus your thirst. Direct it, and let nothing dilute the intensity of it. Let your thirst for God grow...
We must also work to create thirst in others...Once they have experienced new revelation, they want to receive more new revelation. God knows how to make us hungry and He will do it for us, if we will let Him...I want to declare that just as I have many acquired tastes in the natural, I have many acquired tastes in the spiritual. When I was a small girl and felt the glory in certain meetings, I was spoiled by that, and I have never been satisfied with anything less. Very early in my life I acquired a taste for revival. I have never been satisfied without it...Imagine, as a child I had the opportunity to sit on the front row and hear all the great people who were flowing in God at the moment: Oral Roberts, William Branham, Jack Coe and many others. How blessed I was to have things sown into my spirit at that young age, things that have never left me, but have only continued to grow...In the anointing and in the glory, seeds of greatness are sown into our lives.
It happens when we hunger...
Start a prayer meeting in your home where you can let God have His way. Make yourself available to God every day. The Lord will teach you, and you will know His hand on your shoulders in a new way in the days ahead. He will be so close, whispering in your ear, speaking into your heart, writing on your spirit. You can be among those who are simple, yet profound. You can know the mysteries hidden since the foundation of the world...
You can know, not by the understanding of the flesh, but by the revelation of the Spirit. The Lord will lift you into His Spirit again and again until rivers flow in you and through you to bless all those around you...If you have no desire to swim on out in God’s water, He may permit something to happen that will give you that desire...Unless you get hungry and cooperate with God, there isn’t much He can do for you...When we are baptized in the Holy Spirit...we will...come to Jesus. Once we are there, we must take the step of drinking by faith: receiving what He offers us. When we do it, a river is released within us.”

"God will...if we will but believe what the
Bible teaches about this gift (of the baptism of the Holy Spirit), and accept
If we will not learn and yield, we will not be recipients of the
encouragement and strength Heaven desires us to have...The working of the Holy Spirit is not dependant on perfect theology...We need to learn from Stanley Frodsham, who helped pioneer the Assemblies
of God in Great Britain.
He ministered alongside Smith Wigglesworth, and wrote Apostle of Faith, the first biography of this giant. We must listen to Howard Carter, whose book, Questions and Answers on Spiritual Gifts, electrified the Pentecostal world in the 1930s, presenting the outline for teaching on spiritual gifts that is widely used today. Carter mentored a young Lester Sumrall. We must consider the spiritual approach taken concerning spiritual gifts by: F.F. Bosworth, Kathryn Kuhlman, Kenneth E. Hagin, David Du Plessis, and others of like spiritual caliber, including my mentors, the Rev. and Mrs. J.R. Goodwin...
Mom and Dad Goodwin ministered together almost constantly in all 9 gifts of the Holy Spirit through 40 years of prophetic and pastoral ministry."

Pickett, Fuchsia -
http://godswordtowomen.org/healing_pickett.htm - Stones of Remembrance
"Sometime later I had another sovereign visitation from God. I was in my
room waiting for George to come home from work. As I lay in bed, I heard a voice
louder than a normal tone of voice call my name. I raised up in the bed and
answered questioningly, 'Yes?' As I sat there for a moment, I sensed that my
room was filled with the presence of God. No one answered my response so I lay
back down. A few moments later I was awakened, and I heard that
voice call my name again. I decided it must be the people living upstairs in our
house. I got up and looked up the stairwell, but I did not hear a sound. There
was no one in the house. I went back and lay down on my bed. The third time I
heard my name called aloud, I fell by my bedside trembling. I asked, 'God, is
this You?' He said, 'Yes, Fuchsia. I want you
to preach and teach My Word'...
One of the greatest blessings in my heritage is that my parents taught me to obey them. My daddy, the best friend I ever had on earth, taught me to obey even when I did not want to and to love to please him. So when the infinite, almighty, eternal, triune God--my heavenly Father--walked into my room, called by my name, and told me He wanted me to preach and teach His Word, I didn't question whether I had an option to obey Him or not. My earthly daddy had taught me unconditional obedience...(Later) As an ordained Methodist minister, she moved in the Evangelical Methodist stream. In 1959, after becoming terminally ill, Dr. Pickett resigned her pastorate and spent much of the next year in hospitals. On April 12, 1959, she was carried into a church to attend a service she felt would be her last. God miraculously changed the course of her life that morning as He healed her and baptized her in the Holy Spirit. Her testimony is that the greatest thing that ever happened to her was when her 'Teacher' came in the Person of the Holy Spirit to unveil the Christ in her and to her, Whom she had studied and taught about for so many years...'I knew that I would not have lived more than a few months if God had not miraculously intervened in my life and healed my body. That was more than thirty years ago, and I have enjoyed the results of that miracle all these years. Yet, something more wonderful than physical healing happened to me that Sunday morning. Within a few days of my healing, I realized that the baptism of the Holy Spirit I had received that day had ushered me into a new relationship with God. My divine Teacher had come to fill me with Himself and to split open the veil between my soul and my spirit. He intervened in my desperate circumstances and healed me miraculously when my mind did not believe the doctrine of healing...Apart from my salvation experience and the supernatural calling of God to the ministry, I had not experienced visions or other divine visitations. That all changed when the Holy Spirit moved in to become my Teacher.'"

Prince, Derek - The Spirit-Filled Believer's handbook - www.derekprince.org - Section New Testament Baptisms delves into the necessity of adult "baptism by immersion in water" for believers, to separate ourselves from the power of Satan. This issue is also covered in Prince's book They Shall Expel Demons. Regardless of our doctrinal position, if we follow Jesus' example as protocol, then baptism by immersion seems to be the spiritual thing to do. This can be done in a swimming pool, in a large pot of clay, in a river, or in the ocean, as well as at church.

Wigglesworth, Smith - Smith Wigglesworth on Power to Serve - www.whitakerhouse.com
Wigglesworth, Smith - Cry of the Spirit - Unpublished Sermons compiled by Roberts Liardon - "3 blessings are available to us...May people are satisfied with having only one. There is a blessing in justification (salvation, being born-again), a blessing in sanctification, and a blessing in the baptism of the Holy Ghost. Salvation is a wonder (first) thing...Sanctification is a process which takes us on to a higher height with God (where our character is refined). The fullness of the (Holy) Spirit is an (ongoing/lifelong) process, too, just as salvation and sanctification are" (a process/maturation/a gradual unveiling of both evil as well as of God/Trinity. The Holy Spirit slowly exposes parts of our character or self which need to die and be replaced with God's character and personhood/nature. Death to selfishness can be painful, but fruitful.)
Chapter 8 The Clothing of the Spirit for the World's Need - "If we wait for such power, we have mistaken the position we have through the Spirit...God is waiting for us to act, to be like Jesus...He lived in the realm of divine appointment with the Father's acts ever coming forth...Press on until Jesus is glorified."
Winder, Delores with Keith, Bill - Joy Comes in the Morning -
Fellowship Foundation, Shreveport, Louisiana, USA -
Chapter 5 Good Times, Bad Times A pastor asked Delores , "Do you know some things you think you shouldn't know?" (This gift of the Holy Spirit is called the "gift of knowledge".) Delores asked, "Will I always know bad things about people?" He replied, "No, not unless God is going to use you to set them free or to help them through it." (However, some teach that the gifts of God are irrevocable, and thus can be misused.) The pastor went on to explain to Delores that she was 'baptized in the Holy Spirit" and "received some (ministry) gifts" (tongues, interpretation of tongues, and gift of knowledge) at the same time that she received her healing. No one had ever explained this to her before.
Chapter 6 The Surrender Another aspect of revelation regarding the gift of knowledge - Delores during ministry exclaimed, "I know the heart healing is here tonight," because she recognized that that her own "heart was acting the part of the heart being healed... irregular, stopping, and then starting again." Her "own heart became normal again." She asked the patient to claim the healing.
Chapter 7 The Ministry "When God healed me that night, He also baptized me in the Holy Spirit. Then He bestowed on me the gift of healing...Until we receive the baptism and are filled, we cannot consistently manifest the fruit of the Spirit...Jesus commanded us to receive the baptism. That makes us whole. Without it we cannot be whole." Sometimes the Holy Spirit will "slay people in the spirit" - "when He wants to minister to a person's spirit," mind, or body. "I heard the voice of God saying to me, 'You take care of your business and I'll take care of this' (going under God's anesthesia in order for Him to operate)" when we are ministering.
Maria Woodworth Etter - http://www.amazon.com/Signs-Wonders-Maria-Woodworth-Etter/dp/0883682990#reader_0883682990 chapter 1 online - Chapter 33 Gifts for Men - "They (Yeshua's followers) were all filled with the Holy Spirit and spoke the Word (of God) with boldness...This was a greater baptism...needed...to prepare them for the work they had to do (in their generation)...God (Himself) did mighty signs and wonders at (though) the hands of the apostles... Beloved, you are a son and an heir to ALL the Pentecostal blessings, gifts, and power. Press your claim at the court of heaven." (Like a car, we can NOT function without oil. For us it is the oil of the Holy Spirit, Who deflects the glory to Jesus.)
Wommack, Andrew - http://www.awmi.net/extra/article/deal_temptation - "Being filled with the Holy Spirit is an absolute necessity for overcoming temptation (or doing anything beyond our own ability/power). There are many Christians who received the Holy Spirit years ago and haven’t been full of the Holy Spirit a day since. It’s not about what happened to us long ago; we have to stay full of the Holy Spirit. One way of doing that is to speak in tongues on a regular basis. Jude 1:20-21 says, 'But ye, beloved, building up yourselves on your most holy faith, praying in the Holy Ghost, Keep your-selves in the love of God, looking for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ unto eternal life'.

Chapter 15 The Double Minded Man shares that Satan tricks us by injecting thoughts into our minds beginning with the word "I". For instance, if on Monday we accept Jesus as our savior/healer/baptizer, but on Thursday we ask again to be saved/healed/baptized, we may have been listening to/believing Satan's lies and not standing on/quoting out loud the facts of scripture.
Chapter 17 Deliverance warns us to steer away from exorcisms where the speaking of tongues is allowed during deliverance, because demons can speak in tongues.

W.V. Grant Sr. - Chapter 3 @ GREAT HEALING REVIVALISTS - HOW GOD'S POWER CAME - http://www.revivalschool.com/healing.html - "(Isaiah 35:5)... John said in Luke 3:16, 'He shall Baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with FIRE'...It was 14 years after I received the Holy Ghost and tongues before I received the Holy Ghost and power." (Pg 13). "If God has called you into a full time ministry of healing the sick and casting out devils He usually gives you time to give yourselves to fasting and prayer...Then one night to my surprise the Lord appeared to me and told me to go on a 7 day fast, which I was willing to do. After the fast was over the Lord appeared to me. I heard the angels singing a song I had never heard. I wrote it down. It was beautiful! It was like heaven. Then an angel just above my head spoke these words, 'In My name shall ye cast out devils, ye shall lay hands on the sick and they shall recover.' As I began to eat I felt something like an electric current run out at the ends of my fingers and down to the bottom of my feet. The fire of God was all through my body!" (W.V. Grant Sr, 'Must I Fast for 40 Days', pg's 20, 36, 37): "But on the last day just about break of day, the Holy Spirit began to speak to me. Mark 16:17-18 - 'These signs shall follow them that believe. In My name shall you cast out devils, they shall take up serpents, if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them, they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover'...I got up, and walked, and my feet were burning like they were connected to a high voltage wire. The Holy Spirit, and Fire was running all through my whole body from my head to my toes. It seemed like all my strength had been drained out of me, and the strength of Christ had taken its place...For several years since, devil's have been cast out, and people healed. "I had the Holy Spirit for years, but it seemed that now, I was not only filled, but baptized with zeal, compassion, and with the divine nature of Jesus, with virtue, and with the fire... If you feel like the Lord has called you into a special ministry of casting out devils, then remember this: There are many more things which are just as necessary as fasting. Fasting within itself will not be sufficient... But when I was called to fast, it was just as real as being called to preach. I was conscious of the fast, that it was the Lord's doing and not my own...It takes a longer fast for one man to be brought to the place where he is yielded to the Lord enough to receive certain gifts in his life than it does for other men. It took a certain amount of days for me to fast and to become so yielded to the Lord; it seemed that all my strength left my body, and the Lord's strength came into its place! Then I felt the virtue and divine nature, and the fire of the Holy Ghost dwelling in my body, which gave me power to meet devils and to cast them out. "But I still have to be led by the Lord when and how to do it. It is not myself that doeth the works but the Father that dwelleth in me. God will not trust you with a ministry if you do not know the leading of the Spirit."
Hall, Franklin - http://higherlifecentre.com/wp-content/media/2015/11/FranklinHallFastingPaper.pdf - "The 2nd great spiritual essential is the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, Holy Ghost and fire. 'Have you received THE HOLY GHOST SINCE YE BELIEVED?' (Acts 19:2.) 'The Holy Ghost fell on them, as on us at the beginning. God, Who knows the hearts, bears them witness, gives them the Holy Ghost, even as He did unto us.' So IMPORTANT AN ESSENTIAL IS THIS THAT IT IS A COMMANDMENT: 'Commanded them to wait for the promise of the Father.' Clothing of power...If there is that something lacking in your life, even if you have the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, the FASTING EXPERIENCE is for you. There would be more success instead of so many failures in the ministry. The power and demonstration in the Spirit would be manifested and gifts of the Spirit would commence to operate."
Lake, John G - chapter 2
@ GREAT HEALING
REVIVALISTS -HOW GOD'S POWER CAME -http://www.revivalschool.com/healing.html
"I prayed for the Baptism of the Holy Spirit for 9 months, and if a man ever prayed honestly, and sincerely in the faith, I did. Finally one day I was ready to throw up my hands, and quit. I said, 'Lord, it may be for others, but it is not for me. You just cannot give it to me.' I did not blame God. One night a gentleman by the name of Pierce said, 'Mr. Lake, I have been wishing for a long time you would come over, and we would spend a night in prayer together. We have been praying for the Baptism for a whole year and there is not one of us baptized yet (with the evidence of speaking in tongues). Brother, I do not believe that you are either, so we can pray for one another." I was so hungry to pray, so I went with all intentions of praying for the rest, but I had not been praying 5 minutes until the light of God began to shine around me, I found myself in a center of an arc of light 10 feet in diameter, the whitest light in all the universe. So white. Oh how it spoke of purity. The remembrance of that whiteness, that wonderful whiteness, has been the ideal that has stood before my soul, of the purity of the nature of God ever since. "Then a Voice began to talk to me out of that light. There was no form. The Voice began to remind me of this incident, and that incident of disobedience to my parents, from a child; of my obstinacy, and dozens of instances when God brought me up to the line of absolutely putting my body, soul, and spirit upon the altar forever. I had my body upon the altar for 10 years, and I had been a minister of the Gospel. But when the Lord comes, He opens to the soul the depths that have never been touched in your life. Do you know that after I was baptized in the Holy Ghost, things opened up in the depths of my nature that had remained untouched in all my life, and that which was shadowy, distant, and hazy became real. God got up close and let His light shine into me. "Shortly after this experience, one afternoon a brother minister called, and invited me to accompany him to visit a lady who was sick. Arriving at the home we found the lady in a wheel chair. All her joints were set with inflammatory rheumatism. She had been in the condition for 10 years... While my friend was conversing with her, preparing her to be prayed with, that she might be healed, I sat in a deep chair on the opposite side of a large room. My soul was crying out to God in a yearning too deep for words, when suddenly it seemed to me, that I had passed under a shower of warm tropical rain, which was not falling upon me, but through me. My spirit, and soul and body under this influence soothed into such a deep still calm, as I had never known. My brain, which had always been so active, became perfectly still. An awe of the presence of God settled over me. I knew it was God. "Some moments passed; I do not know how many. The (Holy) Spirit said, 'I have heard your prayers, I have seen your tears. You are now Baptized in the Holy Spirit.' Then currents of power began to rush through my being from the crown of my head to the soles of my feet. The shocks of power increased in rapidity, and voltage. As these currents of power would pass through me, they seemed to come upon my head, rush through my body, and through my feet into the floor...(Pg 16-20).
"I found that my life began to manifest in the varied range of the gifts of the Spirit. I spoke in tongues by the power of God, and God flowed through me with a new force. Healings were of a more powerful order...
"Then a new wonder manifested. My nature became so sensitized, that I could lay hands on any man, or woman, and tell what organ was diseased, and to what extent, and all about it. I tested it. I went into hospitals where physicians could not diagnose a case, touched a patient, and instantly I knew the organ that was diseased, its extent, condition, and location. One day it passed away. A child plays with a toy, and his joy is so wonderful, he sometimes forgets to eat."
Mendez, Ana and Emerson - January 2008 newsletter - www.voiceofthelight.com - We need "a fresh new baptism each day in order to wash away all the structures we have accepted without the witness (permission/release/OK/yes/green light/empowerment/ directive) from the 'Spirit of truth'...to "reintroduce" us "to the principles of the Kingdom, which" we "knew when" we "were inside the Father." We do know that Jesus was with God before the foundation of the world. Matthew 13:35, 25:34; Luke 11:50; John 17:24; Ephesians 1:4; Hebrews 4:3, 9:26; 1st Peter 1:20; Revelations 13:8. Also see Revelations 17:8."The (Holy) Spirit of God is from the heart of God and is ministered through the soul of Jesus the Christ, Who has the anointing to continually administer the Holy Spirit to each of us who demonstrates a hunger for more."
Holy Spirit Empowered by Dennis
- 5/2014 - "I
wrote about the word wait in this passage. It is the Greek word
It means 'to stay around, to wait for, and to fellowship with.' The
baptism of the Holy Spirit was to be a direct result of relationship through
fellowship with the Holy Spirit. Jesus said, 'If
any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink! He who believes in Me
(who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me)
as the Scripture has said, from his innermost
being shall flow
springs and rivers of living water.'
He was speaking here of the Spirit, whom those who believed (trusted,
in Him were afterward to receive. For the (Holy) Spirit had not yet been given,
because Jesus was not yet glorified (raised to honor). Jesus knew that we
would need both a special boldness and divine 'overflow' in order to
walk in the manifestation of His promises. The Scriptures teach us that
every believer born of the Word and the Spirit automatically has the Holy Spirit
within. The Holy Spirit came and took up residence
in you at the moment of your
salvation. We also see in Scripture that the Holy Spirit's empowerment was, in
many cases, a subsequent, deliberate and repeated experience for all believers.
The Empowering of the Spirit - The indwelling ministry of the Holy Spirit is automatic; you did not have to seek His indwelling presence when you first got saved. He came and took up residence in your heart at the moment of your salvation. The empowering of the Spirit is not automatic. It usually comes in response to prayer...The Greek word for baptism here is baptizo. It means 'to be overwhelmed.' The idea is to continue to repeat the same process until an object is fully saturated. It is often illustrated by the picture of a pickle being saturated in dill brine by dipping it over and over again. If an object is completely saturated, it means that it can no longer contain the substance in which it is saturated. It is overflowing out of the saturated object and getting all over everything that it comes in contact with. In Prophetic Evangelism, Sean Smith writes, 'When we are baptized by Christ in the Holy Spirit, we become partakers of the divine nature at the optimal level.' He is not trying to say that we have to receive the baptism of the Holy Spirit in order to become partakers of the divine nature. He is emphasizing the point that the divine nature that is already in us is activated to operate at the optimal level in our soul through the baptism of the Holy Spirit."
He said he fell from the roof and died around 50 minutes ago. He said, "No pulse. We are waiting for the ambulance."
HRVOJE: We immediately started to do what we knew to do: praying in tongues, in the spirit. So we prayed, prayed, prayed and prayed. Suddenly such a sweet smell arose. I knew the Holy Spirit is going to do something. So we prayed for a couple of minutes. Suddenly a voice came out of this man, but he fell back again. After a while he did it another time. The 3rd time he woke up, rose, took his mobile, said to his friend, "Call my wife and say everything is okay."

Chapter 1 The Baptism with the Holy Spirit: What It Is and What It Does - http://pray.ca/biblesays/baptism_with_the_holy_spirit.htm - One can and should know he is baptized in/with the Holy Spirit, as an experience separate from his/her salvation experience. Salvation is to cleanse one from (personal) sin, whereas baptism with the Holy Spirit empowers one for service.
Chapter 2 The Necessity & Possibility of the Baptism with the Holy Spirit - No Christian ought to minister to others without the initial baptism with the Holy Spirit.
Chapter 3 How the Baptism with the Holy Spirit Can Be Obtained - Each individual must expect, seek, appropriate and receive the Holy Spirit baptism, based on God's promise in scripture and not on feelings.
Chapter 4 'Fresh Baptisms' with the Holy Spirit or the Refilling with the Holy Spirit - The Holy Spirit baptism is a lifelong ongoing infilling and sanctification process.
Chapter 5 How Spiritual Power is Lost - Usurping/stealing His glory for oneself, will cause the Holy Spirit to hide/flee.

Wallis, Arthur -
Baptism of the Holy Spirit -
Restoration Magazine - March/April 1979 -
"God's people under the New Covenant need
to be initiated into Christ as His Old Covenant people were initiated into
Moses, that is by a baptism in cloud and sea. Neither water
baptism nor Spirit baptism is an optional extra for the committed Christian...
The word that is used consistently and repeatedly to describe what happens in the Baptism in the Spirit but is never used simply of conversion is 'upon'. The Old Testament prepares us for this. Anointing oil was poured 'upon' the head of prophet, priest and king, not to make them God's people (for they were already that) but to fit them for their special service. God put the Spirit that was 'upon' Moses 'upon' the elders of Israel to equip them for leadership...
The Spirit coming 'upon' the Lord Jesus at the Jordan was not to make Him more holy than He was - an impossibility - but that the works and words of God...might be manifested in Him...Later in the Acts we read how the Spirit came 'upon', fell 'upon' and was poured 'upon' different groups of disciples. Paul reminds Titus of the 'Holy Spirit that was poured upon us richly'."
Wigglesworth, Smith -
http://www.revivalschool.com/healing.html - "He said, 'There are 2 sides to
this Baptism: The 1st is, you possess the Spirit; The 2nd is that the
Spirit possesses you.' (See 'The Life of Smith Wigglesworth' by Jack Hywel-Davies).
He had counted the cost,
and everything was God's. He was a man who truly
understood GODLY AUTHORITY.
He WALKED in it by faith. He said, 'Be filled
with the Spirit,' ie., be CRAMMED with
the Spirit, so filled that there will be
no room left for anything else.' That was the
way he lived. Full of audacity,
full of daring, 'full of faith and of the Holy Ghost.'"
Inhttp://smithwigglesworth.com/index.php/smith-wigglesworth-sermons/ever-increasing-faith/deliverance-to-the-captives "The 1st chapter of Acts, we see that Jesus gave commandment to the disciples that they should wait for the promise of the Father, and He told them that not many days hence they would be baptized with the Holy Ghost.
Luke tells us that he had written his former treatise concerning all that Jesus began both to do and teach. The ministry of Christ did not end at the cross, but the Acts and the epistles give us accounts of what He continued to do and teach through those whom He indwelt. Our blessed Lord Jesus is still alive, and continues His ministry through those who are filled with His Spirit. He is still healing the broken-hearted and delivering the captives through those on whom He places His Spirit."
Woodworth-Etter, Maria -
CHAPTER 6 THE PRAYER OF FAITH WILL SAVE THE SICK web post
https://www.facebook.com/mb.woodworth.etter/posts/667163813341477 - “Jesus said: Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth 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. And whatsoever you shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you shall ask anything in my name, I will do it. (Jn. 14:12-14) If you abide in me, and my words abide in you, you shall ask what you will, and it shall be done unto you. (Jn. 15:7)...You see, Christ’s will and our wills come together with the same desire to glorify the Father. The Spirit of Christ prompts us to ask for great things so that the Lord will have a chance to let down His “right hand of power” (Mt. 26:64) and let the people see the visible signs of the Lord. Every one of us ought to be anointed with the same power and gifts that God has given to the church, so that the world may believe that the Father has sent Christ into the world and that the Father has loved us as He has loved Christ (Jn.17:23). “In my name shall they cast out devils…They shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover” (Mk.16:17-18)...I praise the Lord for this, In His name, through His name, thousands of unclean spirits have been cast out. Demons causing deafness, muteness, lameness, blindness, paralysis, and cancer have fled when I (MARIA WOODWORTH-ETTER) have lain my hands on the sick in His name; those who were sick have been made whole. Healing in the Atonement...Divine healing is taught in the Atonement, as much as the salvation of the soul is. Consider these Scriptures: “He was wounded for our (personal) transgressions (when we appropriate His work on the cross), He was bruised for our (inherited) iniquities (when we nail them to His cross):
the chastisement of our peace was upon Him (when we take Him at His word); and with His stripes we are (were) healed (as we believe, behave and speak as though His words are our reality).” (Is. 53:5) “That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying, Himself (already) took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses. (Mt. 8:17)
Together we have the promise of apostles, prophets, teachers, and evangelist in the church of Christ. What a glorious church is the real body and bride of our Lord. Signs (medical miracles) were to follow those who believe in Christ (Mk. 16:17):
“For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ” (Eph. 4:12).
You see that God placed all the gifts and workings of the (Holy) Spirit in the church (the bride who acts as though she is a wife of Jesus and an heir of God plus a citizen of heaven right now), and they were to remain with the people of God “till we all come in the unity of the faith” (v13) “by the same Spirit” (1Cor.12:28). “The manifestation of the Spirit is given to every man to profit withal…But all these worketh (via) that one and selfsame Spirit” (vv.7,11). There is one Lord and one (Holy) Spirit (Eph. 4:4-5). The Holy Spirit is the working agent of Christ, sent by God to work through the church, the body of Christ. Each member is to possess one or more of these gifts as the church walks in the light and believers and accepts these blessings or gifts. Ignorance Inexcusable: Paul said, “Concerning spiritual gifts, brethren, I would not have you ignorant” (1 Cor. 12:1). “Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ” (Eph. 4:13). The bride will go out to meet Him with the same power that the Apostles had after they were filled with the Holy Spirit on the Day of Pentecost. He is coming for a Glorious church (who is NOT impotent). (Yes, later, but also in every generation, so God via His Holy Spirit can function through us - right now.)

A wrong interpretation of holy scripture can keep us bound for generations.
Without Pentecost, the descent and baptism of the Holy Spirit, there is no
The Holy Spirit contains the entire intelligence of God.
The 7 spirits of God encompass the fullness of God. Isaiah 11:1-3 If the 12 disciples already had powers to heal, deliver, resurrect the dead, why did they need Holy Spirit power? To witness and prophesy; to hear and see heaven as did Jesus (William Branham and others). Then I/we can bring down from heaven to earth what we hear and see. Such become a threat to the spirit of Babylon, the spirit of antichrist, who will attempt to come against His disciples. If you are a king/queen, you have a territory. If you do not know your territory, you are missing your mark for life. The weak are called to shame the strong. Stop wining and being beaten down. God will download inventions into Christians. Our blueprints have been preordained before the earth's foundation. Art rules over the atmosphere of a place; there is a ruling spirit there. Images/art influence the atmosphere. There is a territory of art, internet etc. The more you want to touch other's lives, the greater your design. One's circumstances and talents are put at our disposal to help us discover and utilize our callings. We are kings in territories we need to discover. As we passionately pursue the Lord's wisdom and power, He will equip/download/assist us in fulfilling our pre-assigned reason for which we were created to exist at this time in this generation. Colossians 1:9-10 Lord, fill us up with all Your wisdom, intelligence, expertise, assistance, favor and power to accomplish Your plans, so that Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven, right now, for Your Glory.

Purpose of Pentecost in Today’s World
#1 - 2/4/2009 -
Christ's blood on the cross opened the door for the Gentiles (dogs) to receive the blessings (salvation/healing/deliverance/ miracles) that began with (were originally available only to) the Jews. The Trinity (Father God/Jesus/Holy Spirit) loves/ encourages holy audacity and even bends/breaks His rules/spiritual-parameters (and apparent/perceived-destinies) to accommodate it, as illustrated in scripture: [Matthew 15:21-28 + Mark 7:27-30 - A Gentile (from northern coastal Canaan/Canaanite/west of the Jordan River/Syrophoenecian) mother is/was tenacious to have Jesus deliver her daughter (harassed by an evil spirit).]

[The book hints that a Christian is dead if he/she does not allow the Holy Spirit to operate violently in our lives. Thus 5 virgins (half) could be (water baptized) born-again Christians, while the remaining 5 (who meet Jesus when He arrives) could be those who have the Holy Spirit baptism (which is an additional step in the work of God in our lives, where we not only believe in Jesus, but allow His Holy Spirit to be violently active in our lives - raising the dead, healing, delivering, changing our character for the better, having heavenly visits, and having frequent intimate fellowship with the Trinity).]

http://www.byfaith.co.uk/paulreeshowells3.htm - Rees founded a Bible college that interceded for each British battle of World War II. " (This is God's model for Billy Brim's ministry.)
http://www.anglicanrenewalministries-wales.org.uk/main/Livingwater/appendix1.htm "With the Welsh revival of 1904, many came to the Lord but teachers and intercessors were needed to prevent backsliding as the enthusiasm waned. Rees realized that although they had seen the power of the Spirit in conversion and conviction of sin, the churches did not have power for service, he saw the importance of Isaiah 59...but it was hearing someone read from Romans Chapter 8:26-30 that he discovered what was missing, 'I know I am predestinated...and justified- but am I glorified?' It was the summer of 1906 and he went...to the Llandrindod Wells Convention, the Welsh Keswick; here he heard the Rev. Evan Hopkins speak on Ephesians 2:1-6 and he saw the Glorified Christ. The next day there was more teaching on the Holy Spirit and he realized that here was God as Spirit needing his body. Bible passages guided him but God made it clear that this was total surrender; he was to die with Christ and allow the Holy Spirit to have control of everything. 'I had received a sentence of death'...is how he described it. He...spent 5 days in anguish alone with the Lord before he could accept the position of the overcomers. In that time he saw the awesome holiness of God and his own corrupt nature that had to die; he could no longer live for self. He knew that God would never force him but he realized that he had been saying that he wanted to give himself to God as Christ had given Himself for him; it was as it were a last chance, 'Are you willing?' ...
(Subsequently) Rees Howell’s broke through into a remarkable journey (ministry) of Intercession. The Holy Spirit had (already) come in to abide forever. He knew the power of the Spirit, but he had to seek the face of the Lord over and over again to gain a position of faith for the intercession. Each time he grew stronger, but his life was like some of the Old Testament prophets as he had to be totally obedient and be prepared to die or go without and give up everything as the Lord tested him for that prayer. He heard from the Lord and responded with a love that could only have been the Love of God for the world. His Savior never failed him and when he reached a point of victory he rejoiced
and was happy with the life he led in Christ.

The "gift of faith" is an act, a verb.

Benny calls a born-again person a CHILD of God, whereas a child of God who is baptized in the Holy Spirit, who is following the leading of the Holy Spirit and is dying to the flesh (5 senses), he calls him/her a SON of God. [For instance Norvel Hayes says in chapter 7 - Add Faith to Your Worship in Worship, "Some people have been born again 20 years, but they've never turned their lives (their daily living) over to Jesus."]

“When your prayer is not constant, your spiritual life will begin to fall apart. Daily prayer is the secret to victory.” One hour per day in your prayer closet is insufficient for fellowship with the Holy Spirit, insufficient to confront the evil hurled at you, and insufficient to fulfill your destiny in Christ.

After his first meeting the Holy Spirit Benny Hinn as a young adult travelled with a choir. In "the 1970s in a (YWAM) Switzerland hotel...he made a commitment to seek and follow God with his whole heart." Upon his arrival home in Canada (having immigrated from Israel), he sought Him continuously for 3 months.

Hinn, Benny - The Holy Spirit in You #2 - http://www.bennyhinn.org/media/2010-1-5.asx - "Benny Hinn began by saying, 'Without the (Holy Spirit baptism) power of God, no matter what you try, it doesn’t work! You will only finish strong if the power of God is in your own life.'”
Hinn, Benny - The Holy Spirit in You #3 - http://www.bennyhinn.org/media/2010-1-6.asx - “A lot of Christians today have never even heard about the baptism of the Holy Spirit. They are saved, but that’s all. So many are saved and still in trouble. Saved and no power. We need to go back to Pentecost and understand what really happened on that day. The Holy Spirit was, has been, and still is the personal representative of the Godhead on this planet. The baptism of the Holy Spirit is the gateway into the anointing.”
Hinn, Benny - The Holy Spirit in You #4 - http://www.bennyhinn.org/media/2010-1-7.asx - "Pastor Benny taught, 'When you begin to live according to the Word of God, the Holy Spirit begins to accomplish something so glorious and awesome in your life. This is something that you and I need more than anything else—to come under the full control of the Holy Spirit.'”
Hinn, Benny - The Holy Spirit in You #5 - http://www.bennyhinn.org/media/2010-1-8.asx - "Your life can be transformed, too, by learning to move into God’s anointing, knowing that the Holy Spirit is your key survival and success for anyone who seeks to walk in faith and power. Watch now and get ready for 2010—your year of no lack!" Walking in His anointing is a daily walk, preceded by daily repentance, thanksgiving, praise, and worship.

“Pentecost was the manifestation and fulfillment of the Son of God’s promise. As a result, the Holy Spirit descended from heaven in the form of a rushing mighty wind and cloven tongues of fire! He filled every one of those who were gathered together, all 120 of them, giving them His power. It only happened when Jesus ascended into heaven to sit at God the Father’s right hand.”
Hinn, Benny - The Indwelling Christ #3 http://www.bennyhinn.org/media/2010-1-13.asx - “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” scripture says in (1 Corinthians 6:19) Benny comments, “This is one of the most breathtaking statements in all the Bible. The Holy Spirit dwells in the believer’s body. He doesn’t dwell in the building in which you worship on Sunday. He doesn’t even dwell in your house where you live every day. He is in your body. You are His house! You are His temple! He dwells in you.”
Hinn, Benny - The Indwelling Christ #4 http://www.bennyhinn.org/media/2010-1-14.asx - "Few believers have discovered the difference between the external Christ and the indwelling Christ.” Referring to an incident reported in Acts 19, Pastor been said, “20 years had passed since the Day of Pentecost. Paul was in Ephesus. The 1st question he asked believers there was whether they had received the Holy Ghost since they had believed. The disciples at the church of Ephesus replied that they didn’t know anything about the Holy Ghost. Amazing! It had only been 2 decades, yet the Ephesians knew nothing about the greatest event in church history.”
Hinn, Benny - The Indwelling Christ #5 http://www.bennyhinn.org/media/2010-1-15.asx - “'You must be empowered by the Holy Spirit or you will not be a strong, healthy Christian. That is why the Lord Jesus commanded His disciples not to rest or leave Jerusalem until they were endued with the Holy Spirit’s power from on high. They obeyed, and the course of history was changed.' Your life can be transformed, too, by learning to being filled and led by God, knowing that the Holy Spirit is your key survival and success for anyone who seeks to walk in faith and power... Get ready for 2010 - your year of no lack."

God's Holy Spirit comes at salvation bringing His Presence for personal fellowship,
whereas the baptism of the Holy Spirit brings His Power for ministry in boldness to others.
Rees Howells :
"Shortly after he returned to Wales in 1904, the Welsh revival broke out.
He became involved in it and worked at discipling new converts. However, he and
his friends sensed spiritual needs in their own lives. And so in the summer of
spent their summer holiday at the Llandrindod Wells convention (a
to the English Keswick Conference) where Howells made a pivotal
From the first meeting, Howells was deeply moved.
The realization dawned on him that the

and not an ‘influence.’ In his words:
'He said to me, "As the Savior had a body,
so I dwell in the cleansed temple of the believer.
I am a
I am God, and I am come to
ask you to give your body to Me
that I may work through it.
I need a body for My temple,
but it must belong to Me without reserve, for 2
persons with different wills can never live in the same body.
Will you give Me yours? But
if I come in, I come as God,
and you must go out. I shall
not mix Myself with your self."
This precipitated a 5-day struggle in Mr. Howells. From the 1st, he realized it
was an unconditional surrender, of which he said:
'I had received a sentence of death, as really as a prisoner in the dock. I had
lived in my body for 26 years, and could I easily give it up....I wept for days.
I lost 7 pounds...Nothing is more real to me than the process I went through
for that whole week.
went on dealing with me, exposing the root of my nature which was self, and
you can only get out of a thing what is in its root. Sin was canceled, and it
wasn’t sin He was dealing with; it was self'...Some of the things he (Howells) came to a point of surrender over:
1. His love of money: 'The Lord told him that He would take out of his nature all taste for money and any ambition for the ownership of money.'
2. His choice in making a home: 'I saw I could never give my life to another person, to live to (for) that one alone."
3. His ambition: 'Supposing he had a mission in a town and another mission opened in the same place; if there was jealousy between the 2, and it was better for the town only to have one, then it would be his which would have to go.'
4. His right to a good reputation: 'As he was thinking of men of the Bible who were full of the Holy Ghost, and particularly John the Baptist, the Lord said to him, "Then I may live through you the kind of life I lived through them."' Finally on Friday of that week he came through...
The book continues with stories of how God worked through this man teaching him faith and intercession as he prayed for the sick, prayed for the salvation of friends and acquaintances, gave up raising his own son to work as a missionary, traveled without any money in his pocket, bought estates, established a Bible school, and prayed for international events, especially during the World War II. All the while God also continued to deal with his self-life."

Kat Kerr- Recent God
Movements, heaven revelations 8/10/13
We we repent for our sins, ask Jesus to be our saviour and Lord, invite Him to live inside us (as/like a marriage proposal with an engagement ring).
1st Jesus walks along side us via His Holy Spirit, BUT when we invite Jesus to baptize us with His Holy Spirit and to permanently indwell us (as in a marriage and with a wedding ring) He moves 101% inside us via His Holy Spirit [and can be a parallel/shadow/type of legal intercourse/intimacy where the 2 become one flesh.
Ker seems to be saying: that the human spirit enters at one's conception before birth, that a deposit of the Holy Spirit is given at salvation, but that the Holy Spirit does NOT fully join/comingle with/wed our human spirit until one's baptism in the Holy Spirit.]
Kerr, Kat - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ra0MYPyRJ90 6/4/2015 - AUDIO - When we invite Holy Spirit to indwell us, He deposits one slice of Himself, which is to us the entirety of Himself. He is a multi-layered entity, like a rolodex. Our human spirit is also multilayered. After the baptism in/with the Holy Spirit, the baptism of fire, is available. This helps to burn up one's self centeredness and hidden or habiitual sin, leaving a vacancy for more of God's indwelling.

Todd – 7/22/2019 -
(edited) - Spirit Baptism
TODD: I had a vision in January of 2018, that as I'm walking across the stage, I see our baptistry. I'm just in a moment of prayer, walking across the stage, nothing unusual. We're in a time of fasting with our church. I look at our baptistry and see the baptistry completely empty in the natural, but in the spirit I had my 1st open vision. I see the tank full of water and a strip of fire on the water. The Lord spoke to me, "I'm going to baptize people with Holy Spirit fire." Ever since then, we've been baptizing people. After revival hit our church, we started baptizing people and they're encountering the fire of God in that water.
TODD: I was raised Southern Baptist. I thank God for my heritage. I was saved as a Southern Baptist, schooled as a Southern Baptist, started pastoring a church that was a Southern Baptist church. So I was not completely open to the baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire, and even the gifts of the spirit. I wasn't even open to them. I was more of a cessationist. A staunch dispensationalist if you will.
TODD: (I, as) a Baptist went to a Pentecostal prayer meeting…I said, "Fellows, I'm ready to be baptized in the Holy Spirit, and they walked around me, prayed, and said, "Be filled with the Holy Spirit." They laid hands on me. My throat tightened. I got a constriction around my throat. I stopped the gentlemen and said, "Listen, my throat...It's hard for me swallow. It's hard for me to swallow."
One gentleman said, "Well Todd, here's what's going on. There's a prayer language that God wants to release through you, but it's being constricted." He says, "I want you to denounce all false teaching. I want you to repent of teaching false teaching." As soon as I did, I said, "Lord, I'm sorry for believing false doctrine. I'm sorry for teaching false doctrine." Immediately my throat loosened. It relaxed. He put one index finger on my forehead and said, "Be filled with the Holy Spirit." At that very moment the power of God came upon me. The kavod, the glory of the Lord, sat upon me. I fell backwards and began to speak in other tongues.
Finney, Charles Grandison - web biography -
Christians may be filled with the Spirit of God. It is their duty to be filled with the Spirit. Why they are not filled with the Spirit. The guilt of those who have not the Spirit of God, to lead their minds in duty and prayer. The consequence that will follow if they are filled with the Spirit. The consequences if they are not.

Youssef, Michael http://www.oneplace.com/Ministries/Leading_the_Way/ 10/24/2009 TV broadcast discusses that the majority of born-again Christians fail to receive or walk in the full power of the Holy Spirit baptism as they fail to DAILY empty self (of power grabbing) and receive (refill self with) His Spirit...There must be NO area of our lives to which we cling to and do NOT replace with (refill with/relinquish to) God. His Spirit MUST fill every nook and cranny of our lives, with NO vacancy for self NOR a demon. [Psychiatrists have evicted God and tried to empower self. WRONG. This is hurtful (demonic) to both our human spirits and to our souls/minds. The human self is selfish and greedy. The self must die to self and live to Messiah Jesus.] This emptying of self and refilling with the Holy Spirit is a DAILY walk - NOT a one time baptism. This is the mistake most Christians have made. (Quick, let us repent and be ready; for our groom is on His way to collect His bride. Matthew 25.)

The Holy Ghost is waiting for US...When I see people waiting (for the baptism of the Holy Spirit) I know something is wrong...It is the will of God, even your (ongoing/lifelong) sanctification, that you should be filled into all the fullness of God...The Holy Ghost begins to reveal uncleanness, judging hardness of heart and all impurity to men (especially prior to salvation). Until the process of (our repentance and God's) cleansing is complete, the Holy Ghost is NOT welcome in them (to be born-again). But when the bodies are clean, sanctified (for the first deposit of Himself via His Holy Spirit, then) Jesus delights to fill them (up) with His Holy Spirit (via the baptism of the Holy Spirit, which is the initial honeymoon infilling, which needs to be daily refilled like gas in an auto. Salvation is often considered the engagement, whereas the Spirit baptism is considered the wedding. Every marriage needs ongoing attentiveness.)

Fire in Your
Bones: Relighting an Extinguished Flame! by E. Glenn Wagner
"God has called us to 'incarnational living.' To get to the end of a day and know undeniably that God showed up. But it takes getting our lives down under God. I have discovered at least 5 paths to getting down under God. These are not in any way formulaic but are patterns to tune your heart and life into the centrality of God in living. They are:
1.Live out of your core identity as a child of God
2.Value dependence on God more than mechanics
3.Pray for God's 'sacred anointing'
4.Seek to be filled with God
5.Aim for God's pleasure in living
Getting under God requires a clear understanding of 2 simple words: 'do' and 'be'. All too often, we define ourselves by what we have, what we do and to whom we are related. God cares far more about who we are. If you are going to live out the power and passion of Christ, you have to get a firm grip on your true identity, because, quite frankly, even though the old one might get you an interview with a person of power and influence, only your identity in God's Son can empower you to speak Christ into another person and make an eternal difference. So to get a handle on life and live out what God has intended, you've got to understand a couple of things. First, we were born into a screwed-up world dominated by the most screwed up-character of all time - Satan. 2nd, you're not as good or as important as you may think. At the other end of the spectrum, there are individuals who need to get a grip because they think less of themselves than they ought to. This is why both the ego-driven and the self-deprecating need to get a grip: each will fail miserably in the things of God unless they do. They don't need a human or a positive-thinking grip, but one based on truth and infused by the power of the Holy Spirit until it sets the very marrow of their bones on fire! Your Heavenly Father provides the ultimate make-over. Scripture declares, 'For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again. So from now on we regard no one from a worldly point of view. Though we once regarded Christ in this way, we do so no longer. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.'4
A path leads from cold, lifeless religion to an experience that burns with zeal and fire.
This path involves four words: Instruction, Inspiration, Transformation and Incarnation.
1.Instruction - This is the receiving and taking in of truth and giving it mental assent and agreement. However, because instruction stops at this point, there is no spiritual power because there is no submission to truth.
2.Inspiration - I am using this in the sense of a divine/human transaction that happens in the midst of worship.
3.Transformation - This is where my life and identity become more and more conformed to that of Christ. I live with His strength and zeal.
4.Incarnation - This is a walk that shows forth the power and passion of Christ - one where words are spoken, a cup of cold water is given and the person is ablaze with the Spirit of God. When certain spiritual things occur, it initially scares me, because I know I couldn't have done it alone. This humbles me, fuels the fire in my bones and explodes the ardor within me, because not only do I know I couldn't have produced this, I know without a shadow of doubt God Himself, reached down through me to perform His will on earth.
It's only when you be who you are in Christ that you can do what He calls you to do.
Here are some powerful truths (to profess/declare aloud TO yourself/your circumstance/your problem/angels) about your new identity in Christ: (in God’s family, in God’s kingdom) (With God's Holy Spirit indwelling me:)

28.I am one of God's living stones being built up in Christ as a spiritual house (1 Peter 2:5)
29.I am a member of a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for God's own possession (1 Peter 2:9-10).
30.I am an alien and stranger to this world (1 Peter 2:11). (I am an immigrant with a visa and a green card.)
31.I am an enemy of the devil (1 Peter 5:8).
32.I am born of God and the evil one, can not have me (1 John 5:18).
33.I am NOT the Great 'I AM,' but by the grace of God I am what I am (1 Cor. 15:10) (in Him, because of Him.)

and/or Rewards in Heaven
Weymann, Dorothy Mason - Thus Saith God's Word - Scripture Aids for Counseling - MD Productions, Greensboro, North Carolina, USA - In section Second Coming, author cites the Matthew 25:1-13 story of the 10 maidens waiting for the bridegroom, where 5 had extra oil and 5 did not. The extra oil symbolizes the baptism of the Holy Spirit, according to Dorothy, 5 born again virgins did have oil (the Holy Spirit/salvation), but not extra oil, and thus were disqualified by the groom (Christ).

Kerr, Kat - The Temple: Spirit, Soul & Body CD/DVD - www.revealingheaven.com Kat Kerr indicates that all spirits are eternal whether human or not. God decided that when He created them. However eternal is not incarnate nor glorified, which is reserved for born-again AND Holy Spirit filled humans who go on with God forever as His family members and 3rd heaven citizens.

"Men are NOT saved...by the baptism of the Holy Ghost, and especially NOT by the
baptism in water.
They are saved though the blood and preserved by the blood" of Jesus Christ.

Repenting for, renouncing and loosing sins from oneself, plus inviting Jesus into the heart of our spirit man allows 2 things: Jesus to walk alongside us and a layer of our soul to sit in the 3rd heaven.

However, for Holy Spirit (Trinity) to indwell/live/occupy us, we need to invite and accept Jesus to be our baptizer in/with the Holy Spirit. Kat indicates that when Jesus baptizes us in/with Holy Spirit, Holy Spirit TRADES a layer of Himself with a layer of our self/soul. Like a rolladex, Holy Spirit is layered like our soul. Each layer is a 100% copy of self. [Remember, this protocol occurred in 2 steps in the New Testament 99% of the time. Typically the spiritual progression is via Salvation, then water-baptism, and then Holy Spirit baptism (Pentecost/confirmation).]

A New Age serpent evil spirit Kundalini is a Holy Spirit counterfeit.
Howells, Rees - Part 1: Prelude - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v0i4d_hEVis - Some manifestations of Holy Spirit are legitimate but misunderstood, while other spiritual manifestations are in fact demonic (manifesting an evil spirit), disguised as holy or healthy/holistic (such as Kundalini Yoga). (The gift of discernment is a much needed spiritual gift in the church today.) "Tell me How much time you spend with God and I will tell you how spiritual you are." Leonard Ravenhill
Roberts, Evan with Pen-Lewis, Jesse - http://hissheep.org/deliverance/war_on_the_saints.html - Immediately after the honey-moon of the baptism in the Holy Spirit - "In preceding years (prior to one's baptism in the Holy Spirit), through yielding to (personal or ancestral) sin, an evil spirit may have obtained access to body or mind, hiding deeply...never...detected or dislodged (forgiven/renounced/rejected/evicted)...They (the Christians) are left deceived to the end, unless light for their (need and acceptance of) deliverance (exorcism of the evil spirit/s) reaches them. (It is extremely important to have on-going spiritual fellowship and mature oversight/accountability. Additionally it is imperative for one to have read the Bible end to end, and to continuously read and contemplate it. Immature/new Christians need to be brought up to speed quickly, especially in the area of demonic activity, discernment and spiritual self defense.)
From Glory to Glory
Kerr, Kat - http://jesusstories.info/?s=kat+kerr&search=Search
knowing about Jesus was not enough; he had to know and accept Him personally.
He had to receive John's water baptism for the forgiveness of sins.
HOLY SPIRIT BAPTISM - However, neither was sufficient; Peter himself needed the Holy Spirit baptism to operate in peace, power and fire.
BAPTISM OF SUFFERING - However they were only stepping stones; Peter needed martyrdom (a baptism of suffering) for his crown and assigned crowning act. The same applies to many disciples, but most of all to Jesus Christ, our role model and perfector. We each will be a toothless tiger without each of the successive steps, especially without the baptism in the Holy Spirit. Yes, we need each of persons of the Trinity in our lives. We do right now invite You Jesus into our heart, You Holy Spirit, and You Father God. With Your help we make ourselves available to You in Your timing, in Jesus name. Amen.

Oppression & Possession
Hayes, Norvel - Worship, the Secret to Find Favor with God - DVD/CD - www.nhm.cc - If Satan, a created and spiritually defeated enemy, can possess consenting unbelieving Gentiles and oppress Born-Again believing Christians, then certainly the Parent of all can have His Holy Spirit both hover over and/or possess, upon invitation, Born-Again Holy-Spirit filled believers' inward-man/human-spirit, but it may take awhile for the soul, the flesh and even the demons to comply/ cooperate/agree/come into alignment with God's truth. Thus we may need to remind them as well as the/any disease, in Jesus' name.
