Nibble of Bread : Receiving the Baptism of the Holy Spirit

October 19, 2012

This post and the ones to follow on this topic will be in response to a question that was posed to me about speaking in tongues.

The following post has been taken from the book: Living the New Life, by Pastor Casey Treat.

This section was written to help God’s people receive the fullness of life in the Spirit. Many born again people think they have received all that God has, but they are not entering into the fullness of the Holy Spirit. It is one thing to be “born” of the Spirit, but it is another thing to be “filled” with the Spirit.

The baptism with the Holy Spirit is a necessary part of the successful Christian life. Jesus did not suggest to His disciples that they be baptized with the Holy Spirit, He commanded them to wait in Jerusalem and go nowhere until they had been endued (filled) with power from on high. If we are disciples of Jesus, that commandment is still for us today. Jesus wants you to be filled with the Holy Spirit and receive the power therein to live victoriously in every aspect of life.

In the pages to come, you will learn what the baptism with the Holy Spirit is, how to receive it, and how it will benefit your life according to the Word of God. Throughout this section, I will use the terms baptized with the Holy Spirit, baptized with the Holy Ghost and filled with the Spirit interchangeably, as the Bible does; they are synonymous phrases (they all mean the same thing).

The above writings were taken from the book Living the New Life, by Pastor Casey Treat. Pages 19-20.
