Welcome to worship and the word with Pastor Robert when a series called the God I never where we been learned so much about the Holy Spirit is what his chief desire is and what he promises to do in our lives.
In today's message Pastor Robert is going to share about three baptisms.
The Bible describes wealth. Let's join him now this week. I love this message to the question is does he baptize because many people have heard of the baptism in the Holy Spirit really referred to it incorrectly as the baptism of the Holy Spirit and I'll explain view it is the baptism in the Holy Spirit are the baptism with the Holy Spirit so we'll talk but does he does the Holy Spirit baptize and about the board up because I wanted to. I think it will help us understand Saul go to the three points quickly and spend time on the third point so is point number one. The Holy Spirit baptizes us in Jesus the Holy Spirit when we get say baptizes us into the body of Christ when you reject Scripture for scraping 1213 for by one Spirit by the Spirit, by one spirit that's Holy Spirit we were all baptized into one body, and we know they're traversing the body of Christ. Verse 12 actually says Christ.
The body of Christ, so that when we when you get say the Holy Spirit baptizes bad teeth, so to immerse fully what that means into the body of Christ. Always rebaptize your body so we can answer the first the question, the part of the message right now does he baptize a baptizes us into the body of Christ. But the controversy has been. Do we need to be baptizing him and that's what I want to start right so here's the second baptism, the disciple baptizes us that water once we get say we come for water baptism in Matthew 28.
19 go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the father and of the son and the Holy Spirit begin to see the Trinity and that one verse so you say we are baptized in water.
Water baptism is a sign, but it's more than a son son have relegated only to assign some have relegated to more of a salvation experience as well. I'm not here to argue those points of view.
I'm simply saying that it does symbolize what we done.
We gave her life to Jesus, but is also more than a side gets the cutting of a flash. It's a bearing of the old person it's it's literally like when the Israelites went through the Red Sea lately were the Bible does they were baptized when I went to the Red Sea by left the enemy. Remember in the sea then left the old life of slavery behind it was a new life for them so that water baptism now in Ephesians 4 before I show you this next appointment in Ephesians 4 it says there is one baptism, and for people who have argued against the baptism in the Holy Spirit debuts that works. They said well you know Ephesians such as only one baptism.
It also says there's one Lord is one Lord hello, we know there are three law 13 and one Trinity is the father-son Holy Spirit three in one. I'm telling you, there are three baptisms and they all agree and I'll actually show your verse where it says there are three in heaven, but they all agree as one. And there are three alerts referring to three baptisms and they all agree is one but what I want to make a point about is that even people who say there's only one baptism lesson.
Even people and say that believing.
They believe that when we get say were baptized in Jesus and they believe in water baptism sometime either three. But here's the third one.
Jesus baptizes us in the Holy Spirit. Jesus baptizes us in the Holy Spirit. Matthew three verse 11. This is John the Baptist speaking Matthew supporting John the Baptist here I am the baptize you with water unto repentance, but he H that Jesus is coming after me is mightier than I who sandals I'm not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. And we read them. They pinnacle sapphire tape right so he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit. Jesus baptize us and those that know their couplings all address about this.
First of all, he wasn't.
John the Baptist wasn't speaking to the 12 disciples. The 12 disciples had not been called. This is Matthew three that were called in Matthew four I could take you through each gospel and show you that after John said this after John's baptism is when Jesus called the 12 disciples because Jesus himself came and was baptized so maybe José will baptism Holy Spirit was only for the 12 apostles, or for the hundred 20 in the upper roof. Okay he wasn't speaking.
John was not speaking to the 12 are the hundred and 20 he was saying there is someone coming after me. He is the Messiah and this is one of the ministries of the Messiah, the Messiah is going to baptize you with the Holy Spirit and it's for everyone you want to just make you 1211 20 because the 12 point even there he speaking saying he sell everyone when the Messiah comes.
This is what he does now here's what you need understand many people have said that these two are the same thing that they are not the same thing theologically but you know that I have a pet P my pet peeve is that many people and many pastors. It's not that they don't know theology is that they don't know grammar.
The reason you can't say these are the same because they have different subjects grammatically think the Holy Spirit is doing baptizing in this life Jesus is doing baptizing. Please hear me just theologically fence either side plate.
You can't say that the site is impossible it can't be the same. And so, by the way, that's what I said is there for you in this is the baptism of the Holy Spirit. This is the baptism that the Holy Spirit performs so a lot of you have come from a Pentecostal because my background need to get your grammar strike when you refer to it as the baptism of the Spirit and that's where other people get mixed up because the baptism that the Holy Spirit performs is his first Corinthians 1213 oh and it means that to do that.
There is that I can erase this is the greatest toy that I got home and play with, but this is the baptism and another word would be with each preposition in their interchangeable again. I'm not giving this lesson, but the baptism of the Holy Spirit is the baptism the Holy Spirit performs when you get say, but the baptism in the Holy Spirit is the baptism Jesus gives you after you get say he wants baptize you in the spirit.
Now I show you this person Matthew SOT Matthew 311. I'm going to show you the baptism in the Holy Spirit in Mark Luke and John also Mark chapter 1, I will baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with the Holy Spirit again. He, Jesus is the subject during one bad. The baptizing Luke 316 John answered saying all IND baptize you with water by one mightier denies coming who sandals Are not worthy to loose. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire and John were in verse 33.
I did not know him but he who sent me to baptize with water said to me, upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining own.
This is key, who baptizes with the Holy Spirit. Okay, so all through the rest the summer and fall by three words right when talk about salvation water and spirit. Sometimes you see the Holy Spirit. Sometimes you don't talk they just messing with me. Alright so so what about salvation water spirit so I just want to say something is Jesus our example yes these are example right so did Jesus have basically baptisms was Jesus say by seawater baptize on the spare baptized but first let's talk about salvation.
Take we were, say, the Bible says were born again or born again and we were born again. Now this may be hard to comprehend, but listen carefully to make were born as children of God, say little more, or born as perfect children.listen not perfect in our performance but perfect in our position because of what Christ did Christ live the perfect life will never live the perfect life but we are in Christ and those who baptizes in Christ are not in Christ often spaces okay so were born again guy so was Jesus ever born again.
Well know he was it. It's because he was born like the first time when he was born he was born a perfect son of God.
San Jose so he was no born a child of God. So we are all born a child got was Jesus water baptized. Yes, John the Baptist baptized Jesus we always baptize. Was he still baptize illicitly. I've had people say to me about the baptism Holy Spirit and Jesus is our example Jesus was never baptize Holy Spirit site Bible are you reading because when he was water baptize what happened right after he was water baptized the Holy Spirit like descending on Jesus but the Holy Spirit is really great question for you. In Jesus needed the person of the Holy Spirit when he was on this earth. How much more do you think you need the function of the longest Jesus.
Jesus had basically baptisms.
The Holy Spirit came on what was left of the holy defendant. The subject since is the Holy Spirit so I'm saying this is a pattern in Scripture we just say we water baptize there baptized by the late you think that's basically right here. We baptizes Jesus we are Savior water baptized in Jesus baptizing the spirit, I'm saying it's a pattern when you show you a few verses and show you the pattern you'll see the pattern is clear is that. Actually, verse 38 then Peter said to them, ripping up they had you get say you have to repent (from your old life and let everyone a beauty baptized there is water baptism in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. Repent and be baptized, and receive the Holy Spirit acts chapter 8.
Philip Siddiqui goes to Samaria and he preaches verse 12, but when they believed Philip believed as a freak thing. Sometimes Lena got okay so I got site because they believe you get say by repenting and believing right when they believe they concern things of children.both men and women were baptized water baptize okay now you would think that the Bible would stop there and basically say and I had all they needed because they got saved, water baptize at all unique, watch what the Bible says verse 14 now when the apostles who were at Jerusalem heard that Samaria had received the word of God, they sent Peter and John to VM when they come down gave them the right hand Christian fellowship because they had all they needed the outer Bible says now it says who, when they come down, prayed for them that they might receive the Holy Spirit and explains it for as yet he had fallen are here not immersed I not been baptize you in the Holy Spirit fallen upon none of that only baptize water baptize in the Lord Jesus and they laid hands on them and they received the Holy Spirit clear but not say a lot about us baptize Holy Spirit acts chapter 19 verse one and it happened while Carlos was at current that Paul, having passed through the upper regions came to Ephesus and finding some disciples.
He said to them, did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believe I look every form of Paul, the greatest apostle to ever live, traveling throughout the system that has defined some disciples so he says to them, what did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believe okay what if you if you receive the Holy Spirit. We believe, why would the greatest apostle who ever lived. Asked that question. You would think that Paul would know correct theology.
He wrote 1/3 of the New Testament. That's 1/3 more than any theologian living today wrote he will say straight out, did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believe anyone tell you that I was reviewing pipe you receive the Holy Spirit. What an amazing question. You need to be able to deal with this and I think these people might've gone to the same church that I went to run it because rancher is what we haven't even heard there was a Holy Spirit as well as run out my new heard anything.
I have heard was bad when people so now what is a visual check out their salvation sleep. He said to them. Verse three in two. What then were you baptized. They said John's baptism. So Paul explains John baptized with the baptism of repentance same people I should believe we noticed both those words repent and believe that salvation, to believe on him. He would come after that is in Christ Jesus. So when they heard this, they were baptized by water baptized in the name of the Lord Jesus, because she thought so there baptized you so now this is Paul. Apparently that's all they need no verse six and when Paul had laid hands on them, the Holy Spirit came upon them, and they spoke with tongues, and prophesied that you know something because again he will say will this is Holy Spirit, people only have a magistrate know it happened in acts eight XT in which we do have time to read when the Gentiles got site Annex 19 just a book about four times, not just texted you also need to know this, that acts eight about Philip in Samaria was five years after Pentecost. Five years later, people got saved, water baptize nice and will you be one more thing you need to be baptized in Holy Spirit asked TN again which we do have time rate is about the Gentiles receiving and that was 10 years after Pentecost 10 years later the disciples are still believing once people get say they need to be water baptize and they need to be baptize Holy Spirit and acts 19 you ready for this 25 years after Pentecost 25 years later, the greatest apostle who ever lived, found some believers some disciples and said, did you receive the Holy Spirit when you believed sent amazing. When my wife and I will talk about this and she said that was the Scripture that convicted her did you receive the Holy Spirit when I show just a couple more scriptures first John chapter 5 verse seven it says, for there are three that bear witness in heaven. The father, the word Revelation 19 tells Jesus is the word and the Holy Spirit, and these three are one. The father, the word, and the Holy Spirit now everyone believe that verse in a very simple theological verse lets the Trinity right there are three that bear witness in heaven the father. The word, and the Holy Spirit. When they bear witness to bear witness to the supernatural, but it isn't just it is a dish you are born you have your matter and energy and then you die. There is, is that there is a spiritual life.
You're the father of the word in the spirit. There are three in heaven now going to show you verse and I want you to see if you see the three baptisms and let me just say that sometimes salvation can be referred to as repent and believe sometimes it can be referred to as the blood because without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sins and was saved by the blood right so watch the next person CDC. The three baptisms and there are three that bear witness on earth. The spirit, the water and the blood in these very reasonable sent their three bear witness in heaven. The father the Lord Jesus in thine Holy Spirit there are three that bear witness on Mr. spirit water in the blood that we get saved by the blood of the Lamb.
When they bear witness to the bear witness to the supernatural, safe okay when you delete all again for your when you get say you become a new person when you get water baptized the old person is cut off left in the water buried in baptism. And when you get spirit baptized.
You get power to walk in the it's a complete work that God wants to give you when you get saved by the way, all you need to go to heaven is to get site but if you will live victoriously on this earth to be water baptized spirit, baptized some of you need to get water baptize because you got baptized as a child you actually got saved, later wrote in Salem were done there may be. Here the Navy water baptized as you walk the mall as a child, but now you truly give you like you Navy water baptize after salvation. And there are many of you here mean you're not a bad person you just never heard anyone explain to you that this is not goofy and that it is doctrinally accurate and correct and it is biblically sound. You need to be baptized in the Holy Spirit. So I think about it this way is this one of the reasons that so many believers are treated because they only have two out of three baptisms a thing that will have the power they want to live a life that they know that they would even describe their life as powerless and powerless.
Okay is closing illustration. This is the tabernacle… I this is called the out-of-court this area here.
This is called the airport on the holy Holocaust called the holy place. It had consecutive holy place and most holy Place guide. This is what God looked not literally dwelt between the wings of the chairman okay in the holy place most holy place for me.
The holy of holies. Okay so your goal is to get into the presence of God. You know your goal is today is to get in the presence of God to walk with God. Okay, but when you came into the tabernacle Moses by the letters on 1 million is only one way when you came in and listen to me.
There were three things that you had to do before you get into the presence of God. I'm telling you that there are three things that are three baptisms you need when you came into the tabernacle that Moses was caught up in heaven and saw this vision and God said what you see in heaven drawing or this is a good example is this is something for us to understand spiritual truth about that lesson. There were three babies that you had to do before you get into the presence of God.
Isn't this a coincidence. It's amazing. So when you entered the first thing you encounter was an altar when they shed the blood of the Lamb.
Simple was that represent salvation. Jesus is the Lamb shed his blood for us represent salvation.
Secondly, when you entered there was a labor when you washed with water. This is an amazing coincidence isn't what would it represent. Obviously, water baptism by God. People tell you that's all you need but there was 1/3 step not a theologian world describe the get get denied this before you get in the presence of God. There was a flask where they anointed you with oil once it represent spirit baptism only will they anointed you like all over you that now here's the problem.
Some people become the church and we said okay Jesus died for your sins. Okay, I'll accept Jesus as my site and IFU gun safe. We water baptized. Okay, I'll be water baptized. If there's a heater on the pool.
Okay, a lot of FSK SLB that outline I wait till G but I will be water at the aspect, but then we say Jesus wants to baptize you in the Holy Spirit is what many people do a lot of hurt. That's kind of weird so here's a problem. Some of you know your Bible what happened if you wait in here incorrectly the dog died whole bunch of creek Christians walk around and they literally feel, no lights, no count of how and I cannot love lovingly say to you, you don't get to set the rules of how you enter God's presence.
He does so, you come in, you get saved you get water baptized, and then when you get baptized in the Holy Spirit. You can enter right in the presence of what you take a moment to think about with Pastor Robert and listen to what the Holy Spirit is saying to you if you want to connect with us or check out some of Pastor Roberts.
