Some may ask, “Is it necessary to have the baptism of the Holy Spirit?” If it was necessary for the apostles, Mary the mother of Jesus, and other disciples of Jesus Christ to have the Spirit, then it is necessary for us to have it also.
The disciples walked with Jesus, witnessed, preached, and even cast out devils.
They could do these great works because Jesus was there with them. However, when He ascended, the “Comforter” came (John 14:16).
This “Comforter” was “Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Colossians 1:27). He comes into us through the baptism of the Holy Spirit.
“If any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his” (Romans 8:9). “If any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his” (Romans 8:9). This is a sobering thought. If we do not have the baptism of the Holy Spirit, do we belong to Jesus Christ?
“But if the Spirit of him that raised up Jesus from the dead dwell in you, he that raised up Christ from the dead shall also quicken your mortal bodies by his Spirit that dwelleth in you” (Romans 8:11).
We will need the baptism of the Holy Spirit to go in the Rapture (the catching away of the church).
We should wait “until the spirit be poured upon us from on high” (Isaiah 32:15).
Jesus commanded the disciples to tarry in Jerusalem until they received the promise: “And, behold, I send the promise of my Father upon you: but tarry ye in the city of Jerusalem, until ye be endued with power from on high” (Luke 24:49).
Jesus wants to pour His Spirit into you. He wants to flood you with the Spirit.
He will “give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him” (Luke 11:13). Your heavenly Father knows how to give good gifts.
“Have ye received the Holy Ghost since ye believed?” (Acts 19:2). The literal translation of this question is, The literal translation of this question is, “Having believed, did you receive the Holy Spirit?” The baptism of the Holy Spirit is essential for the believer.
One of the most significant truths in Bible prophecy is that Jesus is coming soon. Only the subject of salvation is mentioned more in the Word of God.
Jesus Christ has gone to heaven to prepare an eternal home for Christians. Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people.
Let’s Look at the Scriptures: “In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” “In my Father's house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also” (John 14:2-3).
Let’s Look at the Scriptures: “Which also said, Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven? this same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven” (Acts 1:11).
Jesus will soon return and rapture His people. Rapture means, “caught away” or “caught up.” It refers to the catching away of the church from the earth to meet the Lord in the air.
Let’s Look at the Scriptures: “But I would not have you to be ignorant, brethren, concerning them which are asleep, that ye sorrow not, even as others which have no hope. For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him. For this we say unto you by the word of the Lord, that we which are alive and remain unto the coming of the Lord shall not prevent them which are asleep” (1 Thessalonians 4:13-15).
Let’s Look at the Scriptures: “For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of the archangel, and with the trump of God: and the dead in Christ shall rise first: Then we which are alive and remain shall be caught up together with them in the clouds, to meet the Lord in the air: and so shall we ever be with the Lord. Wherefore comfort one another with these words.” (1 Thessalonians 4:13-18).
Let’s Look at the Scriptures: Let’s Look at the Scriptures: “For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” (1 Thessalonians 5:2-3).
Let’s Look at the Scriptures: “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality.” (1 Corinthians 15:51-55 ).
Let’s Look at the Scriptures: “So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory?” (1 Corinthians 15:51-55 ).
Let’s Look at the Scriptures: “Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it” (Matthew 7:13-14 ).
Hell will be more populated than heaven. Today’s decisions determine tomorrow’s destiny.
1. Do you have full assurance that you have eternal life or is something causing you to doubt your experience? 2. If you died in your sleep tonight, where would you wake up?
“For God hath not appointed us to wrath, but to obtain salvation by our Lord Jesus Christ, Who died for us, that, whether we wake or sleep, we should live together with him” (1 Thessalonians 5:9-10).
