There are 3 baptism’s
Baptism into the Body of Christ/Salvation
Baptism in Water
Baptism in the Holy Spirit
Baptism into the Body of Christ/Salvation
1 Corinthians 12:12–13 MEV
For as the body is one and has many parts, and all the many parts of that one body are one body, so also is Christ. For by one Spirit we are all baptized into one body, whether we are Jews or Gentiles, whether we are slaves or free, and we have all been made to drink of one Spirit.
Water Baptism
Matthew 28:18–19 MEV
Then Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit
John the Baptist is speaking here. This is before Jesus started His ministry
Matthew 3:11 MEV
“I indeed baptize you with water to repentance, but He who is coming after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.
Now listen to this, we have 4 gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.
Matthew, Mark, Luke are what we call Synoptic gospels which means they are similar. The Gospels were written to different people.
Matthew was written to the Jewish people.
Mark was written to the Roman audience.
Luke was written to the Greek or gentile audience.
John was written to everyone
John covers the first 2 years of Jesus’ ministry
The others refer to the last year of Jesus’ ministry
Remember that Jesus did not minister all of his life.
If you read them side by side you will see that they have a lot of the same things in them. But when you read John you will realize there is almost nothing repeated.
There are only 5 things repeated in the 4 books.
Jesus’ birth, death and ressurrection
The feeding of the 5,000
The Baptism in the Holy Spirit
Mark 1:8 MEV
I indeed have baptized you with water, but He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit.”
Luke 3:16 MEV
John answered them all, “I indeed baptize you with water. But One mightier than I is coming, the strings of whose shoes I am not worthy to untie. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire.
John 1:33 MEV
I did not know Him, but He who sent me to baptize with water said to me, ‘The One on whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining, this is He who baptizes with the Holy Spirit.’
It is a pattern in scripture that we get saved, water baptized and Spirit baptized.
Acts 2:38 MEV
Peter said to them, “Repent and be baptized, every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of sins, and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
Repent, Be baptized in water and receive the Holy Spirit
Acts 8:12 MEV
But when they believed Philip preaching about the kingdom of God and the name of Jesus Christ, both men and women were baptized.
Believed, Water baptized
Acts 8:14–16 MEV
Now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to them. When they came down, they prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit, for still He had come on none of them. They were only baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus.
Acts 19:1–6 MEV
While Apollos was at Corinth, Paul passed through the upper regions and came to Ephesus. He found some disciples and said to them, “Have you received the Holy Spirit since you believed?” They said to him, “No, we have not even heard that there is a Holy Spirit.” He said to them, “Into what then were you baptized?” They said, “Into John’s baptism.” Paul said, “John indeed baptized with the baptism of repentance, telling the people that they should believe in the One coming after him, that is, in Christ Jesus.” When they heard this, they were baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus. When Paul had laid his hands on them, the Holy Spirit came on them, and they spoke in other tongues and prophesied.
Story about We have never heard about the Holy Spirit
The Holy Spirit is witnessed coming on people in Acts 2, Acts 8, Acts 10, Acts 19
4 times in the book of Acts alone
Acts 8 was 5 years after the initial Baptism in the Holy Spirit on Pentecost
Acts 10 was 10 years after Pentecost
Acts 19 was 25 years after Pentecost
25 years later Paul found these believers and asked them “Did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed?
1 John 5:7–8 MEV
There are three who testify in heaven: the Father, the Word, and the Holy Spirit, and the three are one. There are three that testify on earth: the Spirit, the water, and the blood, and the three are toward the one.
Something we need to understand is that scripture is important. We can read the scripture and ask for complete understanding or we can put our feelings and desires above the scripture because that is what we want.
This has happened in the church for a long time concerning the Holy Spirit, His work in our lives and our Baptism in Him, the Holy Spirit.
