A Practical Guide to Baptism in the Holy Spirit

(Post refers to this article on a Practical Guide to the Baptism in the Holy Spirit)

Fact each time I read it I experience a mighty presence of the Holy Ghost and I burst into worshipping, I have been so much blessed reading this article, I thank you for creating this site to which I stumbled by the Lord's leading, Thank you 4 simplifying and demystifying an otherwise highly misconceived concept, The devil is starkly aware that breakthrough with the Holy Spirit ushers in the deep  secrets and immense treasures hidden in Christ Jesus (col 2:1-3), The enemy's desire is to keep brethren in darkness on this truth because he knows the enormous underlying blessings and power (Rev 5), Ubarikiwe sana (kiswahili for be much blessed).

What do YOU think?

  1. Pray for a powerful renewal and reassurance for me. I feel the presence of the Holy Spirit, but I need a much stronger experience, refreshing and direction for the course in my life. I am confused by some things. Thank you.

      The following verses are the only places in the New Testament, the word (renewed) is used.

      2Co 4:16 For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet (THE INWARD MAN IS RENEWED DAY BY DAY).

      Eph 4:23,24
      23) And be renewed in the (SPIRIT OF YOUR MIND);
      24) And that ye (PUT ON THE NEW MAN), which after God is created in righteousness and true holiness.

      Col 3:10 And have (PUT ON THE NEW MAN), (WHICH IS RENEWED IN KNOWLEDGE) after the image of him that created him:

      The mind of man is renewed by the Holy Spirit when we put on the New Man (Jesus Christ)
      Pro 9:10
      The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom: and the knowledge of the holy is understanding.
      Gal 3:27
      For as many of you as have been baptized into Christ have put on Christ.
      Eph 1:13
      In whom ye also trusted, after that ye heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation: in whom also after that ye believed, (YE WERE SEALED WITH THAT HOLY SPIRIT OF PROMISE).

      So you see, you already have everything you will ever need.
      Rom 12:3
      For I say, through the grace given unto me, to every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think; but to think soberly, according as God hath dealt to every man the (MEASURE OF FAITH).

      Joh 14:18
      I will not leave you comfortless: (I WILL COME TO YOU).
      Heb 13:5
      Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, (I WILL NEVER LEAVE THEE, NOR FORSAKE THEE).
      Gen 28:15
      And, behold, I am with thee, and will keep thee in all places whither thou goest, and will bring thee again into this land; (FOR I WILL NOT LEAVE THEE, UNTIL I HAVE DONE THAT WHICH I HAVE SPOKEN TO THEE OF).
      Php 1:6
      (BEING CONFIDENT OF THIS VERY THING), that (HE WHICH HATH BEGUN A GOOD WORK IN YOU WILL PERFORM IT UNTIL THE DAY OF CHRIST).

      That all means He has not forsaken you, and that He will complete the good work, the work of salvation which He has begun in you, having been sealed with the Holy Spirit, you already have the measure of faith, which is exactly the same amount that Jesus had.
      It sounds as though you want God to put you where He wants you, He won’t, there are things that God requires us to walk out ourselves. That isn’t saying you are on you own, it is that you need to take the initiative and move, take steps in the direction you think God would want you to move, then He will start to direct your path, but you have to have faith that He will lead you once you make the initial move.

      You say
      “I feel the presence of the Holy Spirit, but I need a much stronger experience”

      If you were asking about receiving a renewal of the Holy Spirit, that wont happen either, you have as much of the Holy Spirit you will ever have, you cannot get more than what God has already given to you, and that is everything He is, God resides within you, in the person of the Holy Spirit.

      But if you are speaking about the Baptism of the Holy Spirit, evidenced with the speaking of tongues, then that is something you can receive.
      So please voice your need, be more specific.

      I hope what I have said helps you.
