5 2 Corinthians 3:17-18 Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

6 18 And we,  who with unveiled faces  all reflect the Lord’s glory,  are being transformed (metamorphed)  into his likeness  with ever-increasing glory, (splendour) o which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

8 18 And we,  who with unveiled faces  all reflect the Lord’s glory,  are being transformed (metamorphed)  into his likeness  with ever-increasing glory, (splendour) o which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.

9 John 17:22 I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one:

10 What matters is that we have an encounter with the Lord (who is the Spirit) that brings about a transformation which is a reflection of the splendour of the Lord

11 BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT IS AN ENCOUNTER WITH GOD (IN THE PERSON OF THE HOLY SPIRIT) IN WHICH WE ARE GIVEN A PUSH / A BOOST IN THE PROCESS OF CHANGE

12 Bernard McGinn Mysticism (spiritual encounter) is “a consciousness of the presence of God that by definition exceeds description and... deeply transforms the subject who has experienced it.” If it does not deeply change the lifestyle of the person— their worldview,

13 their economics, their politics, their ability to form community—you have no reason to believe it is genuine mystical (spiritual) experience. It is often just people with an addiction to religion itself, which is not that uncommon.

14 Mysticism (spiritual encounter) is not just a change in some religious ideas or affirmations, but it is an encounter of such immensity that everything else shifts in position.

15 IF NOTHING CHANGES, YOU HAVE TO QUESTION THE VALIDITY OF THE ENCOUNTER

16 BAPTISM IN THE HOLY SPIRIT IS AN ENCOUNTER WITH GOD HIMSELF (IN THE PERSON OF THE HOLY SPIRIT) IN WHICH WE ARE GIVEN A PUSH / A BOOST IN THE PROCESS OF CHANGE

17 WHAT CHANGES SHOULD WE EXPECT? 1.A deeper sense of spiritual assurance 2.Greater love for Jesus … 3.Greater desire for the truth of the Scriptures 4.Growth in spiritual fruit 5.Evidence of spiritual gifts 6.Changes in our attitudes to others 7.Greater desire to see others come to know Jesus

18 BAPTISM / FILLING WITH HOLY SPIRIT IS AN ENCOUNTER WITH GOD THAT EMPOWERS CHANGE AND SERVICE
